How Winnings Are Calculated in an Each Way Bet

Use our each way calculator to instantly work out the potential winnings of your bet.

When you bet each way, you effectively have two bets. One bet is on the selection to win, while the other bet is on the selection to place. Be sure to check with your bookmaker to see how many places they will pay to.

Example: You back a horse with £5 at odds of 5/1 EW 1/5 1-2-3. The horse finishes 1st.

In this example, both bets win. The winnings can be calculated by adding the two bets.

  • Bet one on the horse to win – £30 return (£25 profit & £5 stake)
  • Bet two on the horse to place – £5 return (£5 profit, & £5 stake. The 5/1 odds become 1/1 when fraction applied.)
  • The total winnings are £30, plus the £10 stake is returned
