Players can bet between 1 to 200 gold tickets on their favored BAMs.
Talk to Teena (or any other Bookie around the arena) and choose Monster Wager.  Place a bet on the monster currently listed to fight.

QHP Note: according to the Weekly Maintenance: 13.02.2014 news*, there's a mistake on the number of tickets players can bet. It lists 50 to 1000 gold tickets but you can go bet from 1 to 200 tickets only.

Once you placed your bet, all you need to do is wait for the event to start. If you leave the area or change channels you will not be able to receive your reward if you win a bet.

You can only bet once before a match starts so pick carefully. If you try to vote again a message will appear on screen informing you that you failed to place a bet.

After a set amount of time a message will appear on screen informing players that Bamarama will be starting.

Diamond Match is a match between an Old Bamarama BAM versus a New Bamarama BAM. It is held twice an hour. With the first match, every win shall be awarded with a special Diamond Reward Box.

=x=x=x=x=x=x Old Diamond Match Schedule =x=x=x=x=x=x
With the introduction of Diamond tickets, a special Diamond Match will be held every 6th match of the hour. It will be a match between an Old Bamarama BAM versus a New Bamarama BAM.
Diamond tickets are only for Diamond matches. Gold tickets cannot be used in Diamond matches.
=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x =x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x=x

Like Gold matches, you can only bet once and if you leave or change channels you void your bet.

Just like any combat sport, monsters are introduced, then the fight starts.  Monsters start off with 100% HP and the match is set for 5 minutes.

QHP Note: there might be times when the BAMs might start fighting even before the announcer finishes the introduction.. dirty fighters.. -Updated: 10-02-2014- As of 09-30-2014, this bug has been fixed and matches start as scheduled.

The monster with the highest HP % left wins.

If the monster you bet on wins, a message will flash to inform you of your win and the prize will be sent to your mail box.

Your prize will be doubled relative to the bet you placed on the winning monster.
