What are odds?

In sports betting, odds are everywhere! The odds are the key element of a bet as they determine your potential winnings. To calculate your winnings, you just need to multiply the odds by your stake. The higher the odds, the lower the chances of winning, but the more you win if you are victorious.

Example: 3 (odds) x €100 (stake) = €300 (potential winnings)

What is a 1 X 2 bet?

A 1 X 2 bet is the ultimate bet. Most team sports, such as football, rugby or basketball, have 3 possible outcomes: victory, defeat or a draw. The 1 X 2 bet corresponds to these 3 outcomes:

  • 1: victory for the home team or the 1st team
  • X: draw without a winner
  • 2: victory for the away team or 2nd team

What is a combination bet?

Do you want to bet on several events at the same time? Try combination bets and add several bets to a single bet slip. The different odds are multiplied, which means your potential winnings dramatically increase. If all your bets are winning, you get the jackpot!

Example: 3.3 x 1.9 x 1.2 (odds) x €10 (stake) = €75.24 (potential winnings)
