What is a Double Bet Calculator?

A double bet is a popular multiple bet that consists of two selections. To be able to get a profit from this type of bet, both selections must win. There is a drill involved, though. The first selection must win. Then, your returns from that selection are used as a stake for the second selection.

To work out your winnings from a double bet, you can use a double bet calculator. This refers to a handy tool that may sometimes be provided by the operators themselves.

Advanced Double Bet Calculator functions

A double betting calculator provides much more functions that just calculating the returns from a double bet. Among the most noteworthy ones are:

Different odds formats

This functionality allows punters to choose between fractions and decimal odds format. This enables them to understand their wager and its particularities more easily.

Each-way betting

A wager that is made up of a Win bet and a Place bet is an each-way bet. It is a favourite type of bet used in horse races, where the Win part refers to the horse finishing first. As for the Place part of the bet, it simply means that a horse will finish in a top position (not necessarily first).

Punters use each-way bets as a means to secure their wagers, in case the selected horse comes 2nd or 3rd. some operators, though, give bettors the option for a Place bet to win should a horse finished 4th, 5th or even 6th or 7th! This clearly increases the earning potential of a bettor if their favourite horse does not take the gold.

Rule 4

This is yet another horse racing-specific deduction rule that covers the situation when a horse is withdrawn from a race shortly before the race begins. Then, the odds on the remaining horses change. So, if you are being offered, say, 10/1 odds for your favourite horse to win, this could go down to 9/2 after a non-runner is declared.

This reduced your winnings. It is critical to know exactly how much. That is the primary function of Rule 4 does.

Why use the Double Bet calculator?

Use the handy tool if you want easy and quick results or wish to compare odds prices effectively. You may also see the returns and the profit you could make from a winning double bet.
