Below we explain several important basic terms in the field of sports betting. With that, we wish to help people who have never dealt much with that topic, but who would like to enjoy sports betting.
1.2 Combo bet (+3)
A combo bet is a Combination bet, which must consist of at least 3 games. Games, which must be played in a combination of 3, are marked with (+3) next to the game.
Please note that certain combinations are not possible for several games.
- A handicap game (e.g. HC Arsenal - Sunderland) cannot be combined with the related standard game (Arsenal - Sunderland).
- Position bets (e.g. Schumacher M., position 1-3) cannot be combined with victory bets (Schumacher M. victory) or pole bets (Schumacher M. Pole).
1.4 Result bet
You bet on a specific end result. Possible results: Tip 1 (team 1 to win), Tip X (tie) or Tip 2 (team 2 to win).
1.5 Long-term bet (LZ)
These are bets that extend over a longer period of time.
Examples: Formula 1 World Champion, Soccer Champion, etc. Long-term bets can only be combined with each other. You will find our long-term bets by selecting in the betting screen under "Select" the item "Long-term" on the left-hand side. All long-term bets are automatically displayed sorted by sport types.
The odds are an assessment by the bookmaker about the occurrence of sport game results. Low odds, i.e. odds that are close to 1 are assigned to an event, if the occurrence of this event is very probable. High odds are assigned, if the occur-rence of the event is less probable. To determine the winnings, the stake placed by the bettor is multiplied by the odds - i.e. if the odds are low, the winnings are lower, since the result is quite predictable. If the odds are higher, the winnings may also be higher, but the risk is greater.
This term comes from the field of System bets or Full-system bets. A row designates the number of combination bets within a (full) system bet.
