## Fractional Odds:

The denominator or 2nd number to the right is the amount bet and the numerator or 1st number on the left is the amount that your wager will yield - For example 3/1 or 7/2.

For example, if you were to stake $10 at 3/1 you would win $30.

Note: The bet would return $40 in total - your stake ($10) + your winnings ($30)

See our winnings calculator to calculate Fractional odds.

## Decimal Odds:

You simply multiply your stake by the decimal shown and the answer is how much you'll receive in winnings - including your stake.

For example, if you were to stake $10 at odds of 3.5 you would win $25. This is your stake ($10) x odds (3.5) = $35 returned. Which equals a profit of $25 ($35 returns - $10 stake).
