Esport Wiki – Glossary

(eSports) Betting Terms:

1-0-2 (1-X-2)

The 1 always describes the home team’s victory, the 2 always describes the away team’s victory, and the 0 describes a draw.

2-Way Bet (Two-way Bet)

The 2-way bet with a 50-50 chance, because there are only two possible outcomes, victory or defeat. It is only possible for games where there can be no draw like tennis, for example.

3-Way bet (Three-way Bet)

In the 3-way bet, there are three possible outcomes: victory, defeat or draw. Such a bet can be found in football, for example.

Accumulator (+3)

An Accumulator bet is a combined bet. The +3 stands for three different betting events, which must be combined with each other. The number behind the accumulator bet is arbitrary and can vary depending on the type of sport and bookmaker. Combined bets of 8 different games (+8) are not uncommon and must be combined from 8 different games.

American bets

In American betting, the guest team is usually named first.


An arbitrage describes a situation in which the player wins with 100% certainty, because the combination of different bets does not allow any other possibility. Such bets are also known as Surebets or Surewins.

Asian handicap

The Asian Handicap bet, as its name suggests, comes from the Far East and is becoming increasingly popular in this country. In the Asian handicap bet, there are only two outcomes, victory or defeat. This is because the presumed weaker opponent is awarded a handicap, for example in football the handicap can be 1 goal or 2 goals.


The outsider is the player/athlete or the team which, according to the statistics, is classified as weaker.


The payout is the distribution of winnings after a winning bet.


Word for bet.


A bonus is often credited in conjunction with a deposit and is usually aimed at new customers. Existing customers also benefit from bonuses from time to time. A deposit bonus is always granted when a deposit is made. A sign-up bonus is usually only a few euros and is given just for registering with the bookie. A Reload Bonus is similar to the deposit bonus, and rewards another deposit with a bonus credit. In this case it is not the first deposit, but a later one.


Word for bookmakers and betting provider.


The bookmaker is the provider of (sports) betting, with whom one can place bets.

CVC2 – Card Verification Code

The CVC2 code is the three-digit number on the back of the credit card that is requested for verification.

Double chance

With the Double Chance betting option, you can bet on two different outcomes, for example Victory and Remi. This increases the chance of winning.


The deposit is a payment to the bookmaker credited to the betting account.

Single bet (TOP bet)

In the case of a single bet, you can only bet on one outcome, victory, defeat or draw.

outcome bet

The outcome bet is not based on the outcome of the match, but on the exact result. In football, for example, you could bet on the result Bayern Munich vs Dortmund – 3:1. If this exact result is achieved, you win. With eSport you can often bet on X number of won maps won. (Lol, Dota 2).


The favourite is the expected winner, based on statistics. If you bet the expected winner, you have placed a favourite bet.

Profit / Winnings

If you bet on the right outcome of an encounter, you win. The amount of the profit depends on the stake multiplied by the odds.

Half-time/end of game bet

This type of bet is based on two outcomes, the first being the state at halftime and the second the state after the match. Example: 1/x stands for the lead at halftime and Remi after finishing.

Handicap (handicap bet)

Similar to the Asian handicap bet, the handicap bet gives an opponent an advantage, which has to be offset against the real result at the end of the match.

Head to Head

The head-to-head bet is a direct comparison of two players/athletes. For example, you can choose two drivers in Formula 1 and compare them directly with each other. You can adapt this to eSport in the FIFA competitions section.

Combination bet (combination bet)

The combination bet is the combination of several bets. This increases not only the chance of winning, but also the risk, as all results must reflect exactly the bets placed. However, in the case of a win, winnings are much higher than with a single bet, as the odds of the individual bets multiply the total odds.

Long-Term /Future Bet

The long-term bet is based on the outcome of an event that lies in the distant future, for example betting at the beginning of the football season who will win the championship. With eSport, for example, you could bet on the winner at the beginning of a major event.

Last Minute Bet

As the name suggests, the last minute bet is placed on the outcome shortly before the start of the match.

Live Betting

Live bets are bets that can be placed during a match.


Word for Odds.

Over & Under (Totals)

In Over & Under betting, you don’t bet on the concrete outcome of a match, but rather, for example in football, on whether more (over) or less (under) than x goals in total will be scored. This option can also be offered on League of Legends by betting on the number of maps won.


Word for a sports better.

Fixed Odds

The odds are fixed by the bookmaker at the time of betting, rather than being fluid.

Odds list

The odds list catalogues all odds for the games and events of the day.

Odds Comparison

In order to place the best possible bet and get the highest possible return, you should compare the odds of different betting providers.

Regular playing time (90 minutes)

If you bet on regular time, you only bet on the result after the regular time, for example after 90 minutes in football. Should further goals be scored in extra time or during the penalty shootout, they will not affect the bet. The bet would be lost!

Outcome Bets / Exact Score Bets

The outcome or exact score bet is based on the exact result of a match. Since it is very difficult to predict the exact outcome, these bets usually have much higher odds and therefore much higher winnings.

Return / ROI

Return on investment or gain. In this case, the winnings are issued as a percentage of the stakes.

Victory Bet (winner bet)

The winner bet is based on the overall winner of an event, for example the winner of a World Cup or European Championship.

Single bet

Word for single bet.


Word for wager.


Word for safe bet. If you place bets on the same event at different providers, a win is guaranteed.

System Bet

A system bet combines different bets and their odds. This also makes it possible to make a profit, even if individual bets are lost. For example, 3 out of 5 results must be correctly predicted in a 3/5 system bet. On the other hand, there are also combined bets, in which all results betted on must be correct.


The trend indicates the probability with which different results will occur. For example, 4-4-2 stands for a 40% chance of victory and remi, 20% for defeat.

Trend Bet

The trend or tendency bet is based on the winner of a match, or a draw. 1 stands for the home team’s victory, x for a draw and 2 for the guest team’s victory.


A tipster is a specialist in a particular sport who predicts results and makes their tips publicly available.

Goal Bet

The term goal bet is used for two different types of bets. On the one hand, it is the same as the result bet, on the other hand, you actually bet on the number of goals, or on the goal scorers.

Underdog (Dog)

Word for outsider.


Word for bet.

Betting Exchange

The betting exchange acts as a trustee between two parties in a bet. For example, two friends bet on different outcomes for an encounter. In this dispute, a neutral third party is required to accept the bets and distribute the winnings fairly at the end of the game.
The betting exchange is not a bookmaker, but a private person, therefore the odds can be determined by the betting exchange itself.

Betting Shop

The bookmaker is known as the betting shop, which can be both online and offline.

Odds (quota)

The profit is based on the odds multiplied by the stake. Low odds indicate favourites, high odds for outsiders.


The Yankee bet is a system bet. You make 4 selections and place 11 bets. Six double combinations, four treble combinations, one four-fold combination. You win if at least two bets are correct.
