At the Free Bet Calculator we understand that not everybody has access to the ‘latest and greatest’ device with which to browse the Internet. So instead of simply discarding the old bet calculator every time there is a major new release, it will be added to the gallery of Old Bet Calculators, where it will remain until it is no longer used.

This page contains the version of the Free Bet Calculator that was originally released in 2010. It works best on devices with screens that are at least 988 pixels wide, and so isn’t ideal for small mobile devices. It is however, compatible with Internet Explorer 6 and above, and is therefore suitable for most people using computers that are still running old versions of Microsoft Windows, if they aren’t able to upgrade to a more modern browser.

This bet calculator can still calculate all of the most common bet types, such as Single, Double, Lucky 15 and Accumulator, but it won’t be developed any further, and so won’t benefit from the extra features that have already been added to the new Free Bet Calculator, or that will be added in the future.

If you still wish to use the original Old Bet Calculator, it is now known as Old Bet Calculator (2007).

Options ?

The Max. Total Stake option allows you to enter the maximum total amount that you wish to stake on your bet. The Free Bet Calculator then calculates the highest Unit Stake that should be entered onto your bookmaker’s betting slip in order to remain within your spending limit.

The Number of Selections value is automatically updated when you switch between different bet types, if the current value is less than the minimum required for the type of bet. This value can be increased in order to create perms or, in the case of Accumulators, to simply extend the size of the Accumulator. The maximum number of selections that can be specified for any bet is 20, although Alphabet & Union Jack bets can not be permed so their values are therefore fixed.

Each Way ?

The Each Way Multiple option determines how the return from each selection, for a bet consisting of two or more selections, should be split to provide the stake for the next selection.

The Each Way Any To Come option determines how the return from the first selection in an Any To Come bet, should be split to provide the stake for the second selection.

Bets such as the Round Robin contain both Multiple and Any To Come components, which the majority of bookmakers will settle as Win-to-Win, Place-to-Place for the Multiple components, and Equally Divided for the Any To Come components (when the return is insufficient to cover both the win & place stakes in full). Unfortunately this is not a universal convention, so if the Free Bet Calculator appears to be settling this type of bet incorrectly, then you may need to consult your bookmaker’s rules to determine which convention they use.

Bets which may pay a bonus or consolation, such as Lucky 15, must be settled as Win-to-Win, Place-to-Place for the bonus or consolation to apply. Bonuses and consolations are not applicable to Equally Divided each way bets.

Any To Come

Accumulator ?

The Accumulator Fold Size automatically reflects changes to the Number of Selections value in the bet Options, but if you wish to perm Accumulator bets then this value should be reduced to the appropriate fold size. For example to perm 4-Folds from 6 selections, set the Number of Selections to 6, and then reduce the Accumulator Fold Size to 4.

Lucky 15 ?

The Lucky Bet Bonuses and Consolations offered by different bookmakers vary, so you may need to change the bonus percentage, and consolation odds multiplier, to reflect those offered by your bookmaker.

All selections must run for a bonus or consolation to apply. Bonuses and consolations only apply to the win part of Win-to-Win, Place-to-Place each way bets, and are not applicable to Equally Divided each way bets.

Alphabet ?

The Alphabet All Winners Bonus offered by different bookmakers can vary, so you may need to change the bonus percentage to reflect that offered by your bookmaker.

All selections must run for the bonus to apply. The bonus only applies to the win part of Win-to-Win, Place-to-Place each way bets, and is not applicable to Equally Divided each way bets.

Selections

The Dead Heat Total represents the total number of participants that finish in the same position. In the event of a double dead heat you should enter 2, and in the (unlikely) event of a triple dead heat you should enter 3.

The Dead Heat Position only applies to Each Way bets, and represents the finishing position for the dead heat. If the dead heat is for first place then you should enter 1, if the dead heat is for second place then you should enter 2, etc.

The Dead Heat Places only applies to Each Way bets, and represents the number of places being offered by your bookmaker for the event in which your selection is taking part.

This option is only relevant if you have backed the Unnamed Favourite when more than one favourite has been declared, and is not applicable to Each Way bets.

The Joint Favourite Total simply represents the total number of joint favourites (more accurately termed Co-favourites if there are more than two).

The Joint Favourite Winners represents the number of favourites that won the race. This will normally be 1, since a value of 0 indicates that your selection did not win and so should have a status of Lost. This value will only exceed 1 if joint favourites are involved in a dead heat for first place.

The Joint Favourite Non Runners represents any favourites withdrawn shortly before the runners come under starter’s orders.
