Join today View market

We've launched a new Handicap and Total Points experience meaning customers will be able to bet on multiple lines, and also be aware of the industry line - here's more information...

A whole new Handicap and Total Points experience has been released to customers across our Exchange mobile, desktop & API offerings.

With these new markets, you can now bet on a multitude of different Handicap and Total Points lines. Not only will customers be able to bet on multiple lines, but they will be aware of the industry line (also known as the rolling line, even-money line, or key-line), which will update constantly as the game develops and the line changes.

We are confident that these changes will enable customers to get better value out of the Exchange when betting on US Sports, Rugby, GAA, Aussie Rules and many more. This video explains more:


Handicap markets

Each event will have a Handicap market that contains a number of lines, which should cover all eventualities of a match. When you navigate to the Handicap market, you will land on the industry line as described above, however you will have the ability to toggle to other handicap lines if you wish to bet on a more aggressive or more conservative position. See the example below:

Having toggled through a list of handicap market options, you may lose sight of the industry line or key-line. In order to return to the industry line, you simply need to click or touch as highlighted below in whichever handicap market you are currently in and the line will automatically snap back to the original industry line.

Commission will be paid across all lines. Consider the following example:

Line 1 - £50 profit on the Cleveland Browns -4.5 line
Line 2 - £18 loss on the Cleveland Browns -11.5 line
Line 3 - £4.40 profit on the Cleveland Browns +1.5 line

Net winnings on the market = £36.40
= total of £1.82 commission paid (at 5% commission rate, the rate applied will be your current commission)

PnL will be displayed in-line, and there will be a breakdown by result in the betslip when confirming bets. Please note that no overall PnL table will be available in the first part of the season, and that customers will only be presented with their PnL for each individual line. This is a feature that we are looking to add in the near future.

As handicap outcomes cannot be determined before the conclusion of the match, settlement will take place when the match is completed.

Total Points markets

As with the Handicap market, you will be presented with a single Total Points (or Total Goals, Total Runs etc.) market that contains a wide range of lines that covers a broad range of outcomes in the event. By default, customers will land on the industry line however again you can navigate to and from other lines by using the toggles available.

Commission will be paid across all lines. Consider the following example:

Line 1 - £25 profit on the Over 42.5 line
Line 2 - £13 profit on the Over 45.5 line
Line 3 - £6 loss on the Cleveland Browns Under 48.5 line
Line 4 - £11 loss on the Cleveland Browns Under 50.5 line

Net winnings on the market = £21
= total of £1.05 commission paid (at 5% commission rate, the rate applied will be your current commission)

PnL will be displayed in-line, and there will be a breakdown by result in the betslip when confirming bets. Please note that a PnL table at the market-level will not be available in the first part of the season and that customers will only be presented with their PnL for each individual line. This is a feature that we are looking to add in the near future.

As total points markets are determine as the score changes, we will endeavor to settle lines in-play to ensure exposure is reduced and profit is returned as early as possible.
