What is Round Robin bet?

A Round Robin bet:

  • Allows you to place multiple combination bets, for the same amount, all at once
  • Is possible on a card with three, four, five, six, or seven selections
  • Allows you to collect some winnings, even if one or more of your bets lose

When you place between three and seven selections on your card, you’ll see a round robin option appear.  To review your round robin options, click the tab.

In this case, we have three selections on the bet card.  If we had selected “combination bet”, we would be able to calculate the possible payout in a very straightforward way:

1.91 (Oklahoma City price) x 1.91 (Brooklyn price) x 1.25 (Golden State price) x $1 (bet amount) = $4.56

In a round robin, we can choose to place multiple groups of bets, all for the same bet amount (in this case, $1).  We can place all single bets, and/or all possible combinations with two selections, and/or  all possible combinations with three selections.  Within these groups, each new single bet or combination works the same way it would outside of a round robin.

Let’s break down the possible bets in this case.

SINGLE BETS (3):

  • Oklahoma City -3 (price: 1.91)
  • Brooklyn Nets +5 (price: 1.91)
  • Golden State moneyline (price: 1.25)

2x COMBINATIONS (3):

  • Oklahoma City -3 AND Brooklyn Nets +5 (price: 1.91 x 1.91 = 3.65)
  • Oklahoma City -3 AND Golden State moneyline (price: 1.91 x 1.25 = 2.39)
  • Brooklyn Nets AND Golden State moneyline (price: 1.91 x 1.25 = 2.39)

3x COMBINATIONS (1):

  • Oklahoma City -3 AND Brooklyn Nets +5 AND Golden State moneyline (price: 1.91 x 1.91 x 1.25 = 4.56)

If we select all three checkboxes on this bet, we’ll end up making a total of seven new bets, each for the same bet amount (in this case, $1).

The possible payout listed on the bet card—in this case, $13—is the amount this round robin will pay out in the event that all selections win, and, therefore, all 2x and 3x combinations pay out.  Ideally you will win all of your selections and collect the entire payout.

If one or more selections lose, one or more of the parlays that make up the round robin will also lose.  Let’s suppose, for example, that Golden State loses, while the other two bets win:

2x COMBINATIONS (3):

  • Oklahoma City -3 AND Brooklyn Nets +5 (price: 1.91 x 1.91 = 3.65) WIN
  • Oklahoma City -3 AND Golden State moneyline (price: 1.91 x 1.25 = 2.39) LOSE
  • Brooklyn Nets AND Golden State moneyline (price: 1.91 x 1.25 = 2.39) LOSE

3x COMBINATIONS (1):

  • Oklahoma City -3 AND Brooklyn Nets +5 AND Golden State moneyline (price: 1.91 x 1.91 x 1.25 = 4.56) LOSE

So, in this case, just one of the four combinations will win, for a payout of $3.65 on a bet of $1.
