- How are Multi Leg Multi Bet payouts calculated?
Multi Leg Multi Bets are paid out based on the individual odds selected for each Leg.
In this example we will show what happens for legs that Win or Place, depending on the Win, Place, or Each Way Bet.
Let’s say you have a Multi Leg Multi Bet with four legs (A, B, C, D)
- Leg A: Win
[Stake $10, Odds: Win=2.00]
If this Leg Wins, then you would calculate this leg payout as:
Win Payout: $10.00 x 2.00 = $20.00
- Leg B: Place
[Stake $20, Odds: Place=1.80]
If this Leg Places, then you would calculate this leg payout as so:
Place Payout: $20.00 x 1.80 = $36.00
- Leg C: Each Way
[Stake $36, Odds: Win 2.50, Place 1.20]
Because this is an Each Way bet, your payout from Leg B is split between the Win and Place odds of this Leg ($36/2=$18.00)
If your Leg wins, then you would calculate the payout as so:
Win Portion $18.00 x 2.50 = $45.00
Place Portion $18.00 x 1.20 = $21.60
Total Payout: $45.00 + $21.60 = $66.60
- Leg D: Each Way
[Stake $66.60, Odds: Win 12.00, Place 4.60]
Your Payout from the Leg C is split between the Win and Place odds of this leg ($66.60/2=$33.30)
If your Leg only Places, then you would calculate the payout as so:
Place Portion $33.30 x 4.60 = >153.18
- Total Payout: $153.18
This process repeats until all legs are finished. Your final payout is that of your final leg - in this example that would be $153.18
It is important to remember that Multi Bets are worked out in the order legs finish, not the order they are placed in. For example, if the leg listed 2nd on your bet finishes first it will be worked out as the first leg in your bet.
