## What is a sports betting system

The system is a combined bet of several multiples. The amount of the bet on the system is evenly distributed between these express bets.

The system name consists of two numbers. For example, "3 out of 4". The second number is the number of selections in the system, and the first is the number of events in each of the express bets in the system. In the "3 out of 4" system, there are only 4 outcomes, which are combined into express bets with 3 events in each. There are 4 express trains in total. In order to receive a payout under this system, at least 3 out of 4 outcomes must pass. Then 1 out of 4 express bets will win in the system.

Systems in bookmakers reach any dimension up to "15 out of 16". The table of dimensions of FONBET systems is presented below. The vertical line indicates the number of events in the system. The number of events in one variant is indicated horizontally. For example, the number of variants in the 5/8 system is in the 5th column of the 8th row of the table. We get 56 options. The minimum bet on a system is equal to the number of options for this system, but not less than 50 rubles.

## How the system rate differs from the express

If at least one outcome in the accumulator is unsuccessful, the entire bet will lose. But in the system, the payout is possible even when one or several outcomes fail. Players see the system as insurance. If you often do not have express bets because of one or two bets, then the system can be an excellent way out of the situation.

In betting on the system, paradoxes are not excluded: the payout may turn out to be less than the amount of the bet. You will receive a guaranteed profit if you win at least one express in the system if the coefficient of each express is greater than the number of combinations in the system.

Duplicate and interconnected events cannot be taken into the system. The minimum number of outcomes in the system is three.

## An example of calculating a sports betting system

Let's imagine that you have bet 4000 rubles on the "3 out of 4" system and have chosen the following four outcomes:

• Chelsea win in 2.40,
• victory of "Spartak" for 2.50,
• Zenit win for 3.00,
• win for Barcelona at 4.00.

We calculate the odds of four express bets with three outcomes in each:

1. Chelsea, Spartak and Zenit wins. Odds: 2.40 x 2.50 x 3.00 = 18.00.
2. Chelsea, Spartak and Barcelona wins. Odds: 24.00.
3. Chelsea, Zenit and Barcelona wins. Odds: 28.80.
4. Victories of Spartak, Zenit and Barcelona. Odds: 30.00.

Since you have bet 4000 rubles, the bookmaker will allocate 1000 rubles for each of the four express bets. To calculate the potential winnings, you must multiply the odds of each express in the system by 1000 rubles, add the results and subtract the amount of the bet - 4000 rubles. This will be your net profit.

The potential winnings according to the example system will be as follows:

18.00 x 1000 + 24.00 x 1000 + 28.80 x 1000 + 30.00 x 1000 - 4000 = 18 000 + 24 000 + 28 800 + 30 000 - 4000 = 96 800 rubles

If you lose one express, you are all you can still make a good profit. It all depends on the odds that have been played.

## Where to place a bet system

The dimensions of the system in bookmakers differ. When playing at the FONBET bookmaker, you can select the dimension up to "15 out of 16". The minimum bet on the system at this bookmaker is 50 rubles, and for each express in the system - 1 ruble.

## How to place a bet by the system in a bookmaker's office

Choose at least three outcomes and add them to the coupon. When playing at the FONBET bookmaker, go to the coupon, select the type of bet system, decide on the configuration and enter the bet amount. Remember that the amount will be evenly distributed among the express trains in the system.
