Unlike traditional fixed odds betting, pointsbetting builds excitement until the clock hits zero. Every single point matters. Your payout changes up until the last second of the game.
NOTE: Pointsbetting is NOT available in LA due to regulatory requirements.
If your bet wins by one point (or unit), you would win 1 multiplied by your bet amount (wager).
If your bet wins by 2 units, you win 2 times the wager.
If your bet wins by 10 units, you win 10 times the wager. Conversely if you lose by 1 unit, you would lose 1 times the wager. Lose by 10 units, lose 10 times the wager.
All pointsbetting wagers have your max win and max loss levels displayed in the betslip when you go to place a bet. This shows your potential winnings, as well as potential losses should your bet miss.
For certain markets we offer the ability to limit your risk of potential losses from a bet with the stop loss slider. This will also limit your potential winnings.
This is the amount required in your account to cover a percentage of your max loss should your bet lose.
Consider a bettor who wagers $1 on Team X as a favorite of 7 points.
If Team X wins by 13 points — covering the spread by 6 points — that bettor will earn a profit of $6 (or 6x his or her original $1 stake).
Conversely, if Team X wins by just 1 point — failing to cover the spread by 6 points — that bettor will lose $6 (or 6x the original $1 stake).
