The new Line Seeker alerts customers that certain predetermined lineshave become available. Line Seeker can be programmed for an unlimited number of lines, including both sides and totals. For example, if the current line on the New York Jets game is +2, customers can program DBS2K to provide a visual and audio alert if the line is changed to +3 at any sports book. To set a Line Seeker for a particular game:
  • Select the game you are interested in. From the toolbar, click the drop-down arrow on the "Line Alerts" button  
  • From the drop-down menu, click "Line Seeker Entry form." This will bring up the alert form. Here you can enter the line or total for which you are waiting  
  • Once your information is entered, click "OK." When your line is found, a message will pop up on yourscreen indicating the sports book at which your line isavailable

The Line Seeker will only alert you to lines available at thesports books you have selected. To select a sports book to be included:

The Major Line Move Alert will alert customers immediately when there is a"major line move." The parameters for what constitute a major line move are determined by the customer and programmed into the system. For example, if a customer programs the system to alert him when three sports books move a line within 10 seconds, the system will provide a visual and audio alert when those parameters are met.

  • Set the number of minutes DBS2K will wait before alerting you of a Major Line Move for the same game. This setting can be used to prevent multiple messages for the same Major Line Move.  
  • For baseball games, you can set the minimum number of cents for a game to move  
  • Select the "Casinos" and "Sports" you would like to monitor

These messages are not limited to any number of characters to you could have the whole Urgent Message or Major Line Move sent to you email address.

    • DBS Messages - Whenever there is an important message from Don Best Sports, it will now be sent via DBS2K and you will receive it in your browser window when you first login.  
    • Host and Servers Pull-Downs - It is now easier to select the Host and Servers to which to login by selecting them from a pull-down in the Login Setup window.

This feature should not be used without a Don Best technician's help.  
    • Login Speed - For customers with slower connections to the internet, it is sometimes necessary to slow down the speed at which the login is performed. It is now possible through the Login Setup window to load a lower number of records at a time to slow down the login process.

    • Refresh Sport - A problem has been fixed which caused an error when attempting to refresh sport in the Custom screen when there were no games in Custom.  

  • VERSION 2.26
    • Due to popular demand, we have added the Next Page and Previous Page buttons back on the screen. However, to be able to add the buttons, we had to move the Bet Tracker button to the menu at the top of the Lines window.  
    • A problem with the Custom Setup where some buttons were enabled has been fixed.

    • Fixed intermittent login problems.  
    • In the Major Line Moves Setup, you can now enter half-points for baseball totals.  
    • Fixed a problem in the Get New Version which caused customers to be unable to patch to the new version and had to download the whole program instead.

  • VERSION: 2.23
    • During Custom Setup, adding games into the Custom page didn't automatically update the vertical scroll-bar on the custom page which made it impossible to view any games added after the page was full. This has now been fixed.  
    • You can now click on the sport buttons to make the page go back up to the top. This is a feature that existed in old versions but was disabled in v2.22, and has now been added back.  
    • The BetTracker now allows you to change the lines and the Bet/Win amounts will be calculated according to the new lines you entered.  
    • The BetTracker used to automatically save your bet when you went to a different game or casino. Now it asks to make sure you want to save the bet.
