How Do you calculate a Single Stakes About Bet?
To calculate a Single Stakes About Bet assume the stake is £10 across the bet.
Bet 1 is a 3/1 Single Bet. A win equals £40 return (£3 return for every 1 pound staked plus the stake returned).
Bet 2 is a 2/1 Single Bet using the stake of bet 1 (£10) from the return from the win of bet 1. A bet 2 win equals a £30 (£2 return for every £1 staked = £20 plus the original stake of £10)
The total return is therefore £60. This breaks down as £30 from bet 1 (£40 return minus the original stake rolled on to bet 2) and £30 return from bet 2.
