How are the bets settled?

Our system regularily checks @realDonaldTrump Twitter account for new Tweets. When a new tweet is published the bets are settled according to the following rules:

    Players who bet on the winning words split the entire pool proportionally to their stakes. In case no bets were placed on those words, all bets are shifted to the next tweet.
  • Tweet does not contain any of the words from the list:
    All bets are shifted to the next tweet.
Bets remain active until there is at least one winner.
