What type of bets are there?
You can choose from three different types of bets. Starting with one pick, you can use the Straight bet option (single), with two or more picks you can place a Parlay bet, and with three or more picks you can place a “Round Robin” bet. Please note: If you opt for more than two picks, the system proposes the Parlay mode by default. If you would prefer to place single or Round Robin bets, you need to select the desired option.
What is a Round Robin Bet?
As soon as you have entered at least three or more picks (up to eight) on the bet slip, you can place a Round Robin bet. To do so, click on the “Round Robin” tab at the top of the bet slip. The number of possible Round Robin bets depends on the number of predicted outcomes. The bets possible with your picks will be displayed automatically.
The main difference between Round Robin bets and Parlay bets is that you can win a Round Robin bet even if not all your picks are correct. For example, in the case of a 2/3 Round Robin bet, you win even if only two of your three predictions turn out to be correct. Please note that the amount of potential returns displayed when you place your bet corresponds to the maximum return, i.e. in the above example, they payout if all three of picks are correct. In a Round Robin bet, combinations of picks are formed. An example is as follows : You have selected four different picks and opted for a 2/4 Round Robin bet. This means that you will be placing a total of six bets, since there are six possible winning pairs based on those four predictions.
What is an Each-Way Bet?
When you make a selection for a competition or tournament, you can place an Each-Way wager (if Each-Way wagers are offered for such competition/tournament). To do so, click on the “Each Way” button on your betslip to choose between Win Only or Each Way. An Each-Way wager consists of two separate bets: one bet on the selection to win, and one bet on the selection to finish in one of the place positions. An example is as follows: you have selected a team for an Each-Way wager in a tournament where the winner and the runner-up are place positions. This means that you will be placing one bet on your selection to win and a separate bet on your selection to win or be the runner-up. Dead Heat rules apply.

Bankers are possible only with Round Robin bets bets. If you are really sure about the outcome of a game (e.g. if there is a clear favorite), you can select that game as a banker in your wager. In this case, you win the bet if the banker is right and the corresponding Round Robin bet criterion has been satisfied. The amount of the winnings on a Round Robin bet with a banker once again depends on how many of your picks are correct. If the banker is incorrect or the Round Robin bet criterion is not satisfied, you lose the bet. If you choose a 2/3 Round Robin bet with a banker, you win only if two picks of your bet and your banker are correct. The amount of the winnings depends on the odds of the picks you won. The maximum returns from your bet (banker correct and all other picks of the Round Robin bet are correct) will be displayed to you when you place your bet. It is also possible to include several bankers within a Round Robin bet.
