I am trying to run the following code


but it will not work. it does however work when i replace $betamount with an actual number ie




any ideas on whats going wrong ? the $_POST['bet'] is defiantly a number because i have tried multiplying in php and it all works fine.

Fixed this now, All you have to do is change it to this

floatval(trim()) ie ...    $betamount=floatval(trim($_POST['bet'])); 

for numbers

and this

and just trim()  ie ... $litecoinaddr=trim($_POST['address']); 

for strings


Admin isnt a variable so its a string.

Strings should be in quotes so it should be.
