European Price Wager

European Price wagering is similar to Money Line wagering. These are usually displayed in decimal format and use two formulas to calculate payouts.

European Prices above 1.0
(Wager Amount) x (European Price) = Total Payout

European Prices below 1.0
(Wager Amount) x (European Price) + Wager Amount = Total Payout

For example, the bettor bets $100 on Manchester City 2.40 to beat Arsenal 0.60. If Manchester City wins, he wins $240.His friend bets $100 on Arsenal. If Arsenal wins, his friend wins $160. The following table displays the results of four different winning European Price bets.
