So, looking at three basic bet types offers an increased knowledge for your players, and in doing so, you represent a small portion of operators that understands the value of the player goes beyond monetary aspects and this is often felt by the gamers too. 


Totals | Betting Type 

As a popular and common alternative to 1x2 and Handicap betting, Totals, the focus is not on determining a winner of a match but on correctly foreseeing game variables like runs/points/total goals, or, any quantifiable variable. 


Handicap | Betting Type

Handicap, as a type of betting, focuses on one team that is heavily favoured against their opponents to win a match or event. As a means of countering this suggested bias, bookmakers will offer this betting type to, in essence, ‘level the playing field’. 


This is applied to factor in the final score and determine the games outcomes to help inform the purpose of the bet, which could not reflect the actual result. 


1x2 | Betting Type

As one of the most common types of betting, 1x2, is the simplest way for a player to understand the cost of a bet.
