THREE WAY HANDICAP

If this betting event outcome is selected, goals (points, etc.) are added to the final result (or deducted in case of negative advantage) of the chosen team or participant. When the result including the handicap is in favor of chosen team or participant, the bet is considered to be won. If the result is in favor of opposition, the bet is considered to be lost. In cases where the result including the chosen handicap is a draw, the handicap draw outcome is considered the winner and other outcomes the loser.

In the case of multiple sides or outcomes declared as winners of one event, the player's winnings are calculated by dividing the odds in the betslip from the number of winning sides or outcomes. The recounted odds cannot be lower than 1.
