How do Odds Work?


Odds are there to tell you how much money you will win. They're basically examples so that each user can calculate their own individual returns based on the amount they're willing to stake. For example 2/1 is an example – if you were to stake £1 you will win £2. Below are a few examples to show how the calculation works:

  • 2/1 – I stake £10 this returns £30. 2 x my original stake (£10 x 2 = £20) plus the
    original stake (£10)
  • 60/1 – I stake £10 this returns £610. 60 x my original stake (£10 x 60 = £600) plus the
    original stake (£10)
  • 11/2 – I stake £10 this returns £65. 11/2 = 5.5, this is the amount I win per £1 staked, so £10x5.5 = £55 plus the original stake (£10)
