Points Betting is a new, more exciting way to bet where your winnings or losses from a bet are not determined until the very end of a game. Points Betting allows you to win big if your sports predictions are correct.

The more
 you’re right,
the more
 you win.

The more 
you’re wrong,
the more 
you lose.

How Points Betting Works

A new way to bet

If your bet wins by one point (or unit), you would win 1 x your bet amount (stake).
If your bet wins by 2 units, you win 2 x stake. If your bet wins by 10 units, you win 10 x stake. Conversely if you lose by 1 unit, you would lose 1 x stake.
Lose by 10 units, lose 10 x stake.

Market caps

All markets have max win and max loss levels displayed in the bet slip at time of bet placement so you will always know what your potential winnings will be, as well as what your losses could equate to if your bet goes against you.

Market info

All betting markets have information boxes that explain how each market works, including examples and any other information relevant to a particular betting type.

Withheld Levels

We withhold an amount at time of bet placement to cover a proportion of the risk from a particular bet. This withheld amount is displayed in the bet slip when placing a bet.

Stop losses

For certain markets we offer the ability for you to reduce your potential losses from a bet. This will also reduce your potential winnings.

For example, if you backed the Timberwolves -5 and you set a stop loss at 12pts. If they lost by 20pts at the line you wouldn’t lose 20 times stake. You would lose only 12 times stake. If they happen to win easily at the line, the winnings will also be reduced.
