Calculate Your Sport Betting Returns
SELECT BET TYPE
+ Bet Type
Choose your bet type - From a ‘Single’ to a ‘247’ bet Goliath.
Stake -Enter your stake, this is the amount you bet. If you enter £1 for a ‘single’ this will show as £1, if you enter £1 on a Lucky 15, your stake will be £15, as the stake is multiplied by the number of bets for each bet type.
+ Win / Each Way
Choose whether you made the bet to ‘win’ or ‘each way’ for a place. If your bet is an each way bet additional options will appear on thebetcalculator. We have defaulted to standard settings for these options but you can edit if needed.
- ‘Win to win, place to place’ and ‘Equally divided’. In accumulator bets, usually the win return gets added to the subsequent win return, and the each way return gets added to the subsequent each way return. The returns are then combined to calculate your winnings. If you have specified ‘Equally divided’ The returns from each event are split 50/50, half to the win, and half to the each way and then subsequently combined to calculate your winnings.
- Place odds vary according to the number of ‘runners’ within an event. In horse racing this is defined as:
- 4 runners or less – winner only
- 5 to 7 runners – 1st & 2nd, 1/4 odds
- 8 or more runners – 1st, 2nd & 3rd, 1/5 odds
- Handicap: 12 to 15 runners – 1st, 2nd & 3rd, 1/4 odds
- Handicap: 16 or more runners – 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th, 1/4 odds
+ Rule 4
Rule 4 default is off, Rule 4 only applies if you have a non-runner. In this instance the bookie may reduce the odds by a certain percentage. You can turn rule 4 on and apply this % figure to each race only if required.
+ Decimals / Fractions / Amercian
Odds formats vary across different countries. In the UK odds formats are usually represented as a fraction, ie 5/1, in the US this would normally be presented as a percentage figure ie 500, and in many other countries this would be represented as a decimal figure ie 5.0.
How much have you won or would you win? The results we show are Total Return and Total Profit. Total Return includes the stake that is returned to you and profit is how much money you actually generated from your bet.
