  • Team A: 1.86
  • Team B: 1.96
  • Team C: 1.90
  • Team D: 2.36

Bet Result
Computation Formula
Payout
Win All
Bet on A, B, C and D, and win all bet selections
Stake x Odds - Stake
($100 x (1.86 x 1.96 x 1.90 x 2.36)) -100
= $1535.00
Win Half
Bet on A, B, C and D, and A only won by half
([(A Odds - Capital) / 2) + Capital] x Win Odds) x Stake - Stake
([(1.86-1) / 2+1] x 1.96 x 1.90 x 2.36) x $100 - $100
= $1156.80
Lose Half
Bet on A, B and C and A loses by half
((Multiply all odds except selection A) x (Stake / 2)) - Stake
((1.96 x 1.90) x (100 / 2)) - $100
= $86.20
Lose Half (x2)
Bet on A, B and C, and A and B lose by half
((Stake / 2) / 2 x Win Odds) - Stake
(($100 / 2) / 2 x 1.90) - $100
= -$52.50
