Changing how odds are displayed

We offer three options to choose how the odds are displayed on the betting page: Fractional, Decimal, and American, which are the most popular.

Go to the Sports page to choose your preferred option and on the top right-hand side, you will see a drop-down box with the three options:

  • Fractional odds → commonly used in the UK, do not include the stake when displayed and are displayed as a fractional number.
    • Example: $1 stake at odds of 2/1 would give a total return including stake of $3. The first number, in this instance 2, indicates the returns based on a stake amount equalling the second number, in this instance 1. So a $1 stake would return $2 profit and $1 stake, totaling $3.
  • Decimal odds → common in Europe and Asia and are displayed inclusive of stake.
    • Example: $1 stake at odds of 3.00 would give a total return including stake of $3. The decimal odds are multiplied by the stake, in this instance 3 x 1, to give total returns of $3.
  • American odds → common in North America and odds are based on $100 amounts. If the odds show a '+', this is how much you would win for a stake of 100 and if they show a '-', that's the amount to place to win 100 units.

If you are not logged in, the odds format shown will be based on your location.
