 English System — is a full combination of expresses of a certain size from preliminary defined number of events. Each combination in the system is calculated as a separate express.

## Example of a «system» bet

Teams Odds
Team 1 Team 2 1
win of «Team 1»
X
stand-off
2
win of «Team 2»
Bavaria Shalke 1,20 5,00 9,10
Lazio Juventus 2,10 3,10 3,40
Washington Tampa Bay 1,90 3,80 3,40
Simon Rionitz 1,40 2,60

For example, the following four results are chosen:

1. «win of Shalke» (odds — 9,1),
2. «stand-off in the match Lazio — Juventus» (odds — 3,1),
3. «win of Tampa Bay» (odds — 3,4),
4. «win of Rionitz» (odds — 2,6).

So, the total number of results in the «system bet» is defined — 4. The following bets can be placed according to these options of results:

1. System «2 of 4» — all different expresses consisting of 2 results which can be set from the chosen 4 results. It will be the following expresses:
• (1) + (2)
• (1) + (3)
• (1) + (4)
• (2) + (3)
• (2) + (4)
• (3) + (4)

In this case 6 double expresses will be placed. And the total amount of bet for system will be distributed equally — 1/6 of the total bet will be distributed to each express.

1. System «3 of 4» — are all different expresses consisting of 3 results, which can be set from the chosen 4 results. This will be the following expresses:
• (1) + (2) + (3)
• (1) + (2) + (4)
• (1) + (3) + (4)
• (2) + (3) + (4)

In this case 4 triple expresses will be placed. Total amount of the bet for system will be distributed equally — 1/4 of the total bet to each express.

Important! The advantage of the «system» if compared to the «express» is the following: «express» loses even if only one result was predicted incorrectly while in the system only options with incorrect result will lose.

Let’s suppose that in the system «2 of 4» for 600 rubles the third result was not predicted correctly (for example, «Tamps Bay» lost or stood-off), while all other results were predicted correctly. In this case all expresses containing the third result, will lose but the rest options of the system will win:

• (1) + (2). Odds of express: 9,1×3,1 = 28,21
• (1) + (3). Lost.
• (1) + (4). Odds of express: 9,1×2,6 = 23,66
• (2) + (3). Lost.
• (2) + (4). Odds of express: 3,1×2,6 = 8,06
• (3) + (4). Lost.

Bet amount 600 rubles is distributed equally between all options of the system (6 options.). So, the following is calculated for each express: 600 rubles. / 6 express = 100 rubles

Total payment will be 100 rubles. x 28,21 + 100 rubles. x 23,66 + 100 rubles. x 8,06 = 5 993 rubles.

## Calculation of «express» and «system» bets

If you would like to get more details about principles of calculation of «express» and «system» bets, you can use a special calculator which allows to set any number of events, bet amount and odds. The calculator gives explanation of all combinations participating in calculation of the final amount of prize according to the bet.
