What is a Fancy Bet?

A fancy bet is an additional bet market customized for cricket punters and is applicable only to cricket. Fancy betting has specific betting rules on it’s own. Betting on Fancy bets will not affect the liquidity of the Exchange.

What do the terms “Yes” and “No” mean? Fancy bets will always be back bets. The term ‘Yes’ means you are betting on an outcome To Happen while the term ‘No’ means you are betting on an outcome Not To Happen. 

For example, NCC 5 Over Runs:

‘NCC’ is the abbreviation of the team, while ‘5 Over Runs’ refers to the total runs scored in the first five overs of the match. An over involves six deliveries from the bowler. If you bet on ‘Yes’ means you believe that NCC will have a total of 62 runs or above in the first five overs. If you bet on ‘No’ means you believe that NCC will have less than a total of 61 runs in the first five overs. Thus, the final result must be 60 runs or below in order to win the bet. 

Another example, Fall of 1st WKT NCC:

“NCC” is the abbreviation of the team, while ‘Fall of 1st WKT’ refers to when the 1st batsman will be out. If you bet on “Yes”, this means that you believe the batsman will be out after 58 runs. And if you bet on “No”, this means that you believe the batsman will be out before 58 runs. If the 1st batsman is out when there are 54 runs, betting on ‘No’ will win the bet.

 

The number shown below the runs is the odds. They have minimum and maximum stake on the right hand side applied to each Fancy Bet. You can choose whether to accept at any odds. This allows you to accept that price changes may occur between betslip creation and bet placement, so you will always get your bet on instead of seeing errors or bet placement rejections due to price movements.
