How to bet

This section is for those who want to understand a little more about sports betting and explains the standard betting formats that are generally used around the world.

If you have any questions please consult our Racing staff in Sportland who will be pleased to answer any of your queries.

An Introduction

All betting is based upon prices or odds, there are two ways of expressing these prices or odds.
By fractions or by decimals, for example:

Fractional betting:
2/1, this means for every one unit you stake you win two. In addition, your stake will be returned. So if you had a 100 roubles (our minimum bet) at 2/1 your returns (win and stake) would be 200 (win) + 100 (Stake) = 300 roubles.

Decimal Betting:
This is the preferred method of betting in Moscow. The decimal price includes both the stake and win, for example, 2/1 would be 3.00 (2.00 win & 1.00 stake). It acts just like an currency exchange rate and you would take the decimal price and multiply by how much you staked; for example, 100 roubles at 3.00= 100 x 3.00 = 300 roubles

How to Bet

As a customer you fill out a betting slip with your selection(s) and stake(s), this you then take to the counter with your chips where it is officially stamped and your stake is checked and then taken, you will get the pink copy (duplicate copy) as proof of your bet. We keep the top or white copy to process your bet.

When your selection wins you take your pink copy back to the counter, and our staff will check your copy against our copy and pay your winnings. You can collect your win immediately or within 2 months of the event.
