The odds of the bookmakers can be presented in different formats (styles) depending on the region where the bets are taken. The **main formats** are as follows:

For example: 1.25; 3.40; 7.00

The odds show the amount you would receive for a unit stake in the event of winning.

For example: ¼; 12/5; 6/1

The bookies show the proportion of the risky sum by the betting house (the numerator) for the bettor (the denominator). The transition of Decimal fractions is done by dividing the numerator by the denominator and adding 1 to the result. For example, ¼ becomes 0.25, and after the addition of 1 becomes 1.25 which is the decimal number that corresponds to the fraction ¼.

For example: -110; -200; +250; +500

When there is, a minus sign in front of the number indicates the number of units of the practice of audit risk to win 100 units. "-110" also means "I bet 110 to win 100". Is equal to the decimal odds of 1.909 (1.91 after the turn off). To convert to the Decimal Format, you have to take -100, divide it by the odds and add 1. When the odds are positive numbers means that the units that the player could win a bet of 100 units. +250 means "I will take 250 for a bet of 100 units". Is equal to the decimal odds of 3.50. To convert to the Decimal Format you have to divide the odds by 100 and add 1 to the result.

There are **3 more formats** of odds that are typical of the Asian bookmakers and are used by their customers.

For example: ½ from the UK Format is 0.5 in the Hong Kong Format; 2/5 is 0.40 etc.

For values of the UK Format is less than or equal to 1/1 (even), with the Malaysian Format which is presented as decimal fractions, i.e. this range is identical to the Hong Kong Format. For values of the UK Format greater than 1, the Malaysian Format is presented as a negative of the decimal fraction of reciprocity for the UK of the value. For example, 6/5 from the UK Format is 5/6, which is equal to 0.83, so that it would be presented as -0.83 with the Format of Malaysia.
