Simple bet calculator

bet365 is where I bet. For 2 reasons:

1) it's really easy to use and 2) it gives me loads of choice.

You can get money in and place bets as easily as buying something on Amazon. And they offer a massive range of sports from around the world, so whenever you want to bet, you'll find a market.

Registration takes about 2 minutes (as well as your name, address and password, you'll also have to give them a 4 digit PIN and your mother's maiden name. Personally, I don't mind a little extra security as I like to know my money's safe!)

Once you register, you can deposit straight away. There's a good choice of options, but I'd recommend Paypal as it's an easy way to pay for most things online.

They'll email you with an offer code as soon as you deposit. You can then claim a free bonus as big as the largest deposit you place in your first seven days, up to £200. I like this idea because it doesn't commit you to depositing a big amount until you've got a feel for the place. You could start with £10 and then build up over the week.

Once you've deposited, you're straight in – you can start to access the live streaming service and bet in-play, or just sit back and watch!

They've got tons of offers, which you can see here, but the best ones are:

Racing (Best odds guarantee)
Soccer (Bore draw money back)
Tennis (50% Accumulator bonus)
Rugby (Extra time, extra chance)
Mobile (100% on the move bonus)

If you sign up with bet365, let me know how you get on and I'll add your comments to my reviews.


Instant Bet Calculator

How to use the calculator

To work out the return on any bet, simply enter the Odds and the Stake. For example, if you were betting £100 on a 9-4 chance, enter:

Odds = 9 (to) 4, Stake = 100, then click 'Calculate'

The Instant Bet Calculator will then show the return on a:

Win only bet

Winning each way bet (1/4 odds)
Winning each way bet (1/4 odds)

Winning Place bet (1/4 odds)
Winning Place (1/5 odds)

Entering Each way bets

If you're making an Each-way bet, enter the individual stake, but remember that it will cost you double ie a '£20 pound each way' bet is, in fact, 2 £20 bets, so it costs you £40. But for the calculator, enter it as £20.
