# 📕How to read Betting Odds

We currently support three types of odds: Decimal, Hong Kong and Malay.

### Decimal Odds (DEC)

Decimal odds represent the total amount the player can recieve with a $1 wager.

For example if player stake = $10, decimal odds = 2.3, then the player can receive a total of $10 * 2.3 = $23 payout if the bet wins.

More examples:

### Hong Kong Odds (HK)

Hong Kong Odds represent the "net profit" a player can earn with a $1 wager.

For example if player stake = $10, Hong Kong odds = 0.5, then the player will profit $10 * 0.5 = $5 dollars. In the end the player can recieve a total of $5 (profit) + $10 (original stake) = $15 payout if the bet wins.

More examples:

### Malaysian Odds (MY)

Malaysian odds can be expressed as either a positive (+) or negative (-) value. Each has a different meaning.

When Malaysian odds are positive, they function the same as Hong Kong odds, meaning how much net profit a player can earn for a $1 wager.

When Malaysian odds are negative, they represent how much a player has to wager to earn a net profit of $1.

For example, if player stake = $80, Malaysian odds = -0.80, then the player will profit $10 if the bet wins. Total payout will be $80 (stake) + $10 (profit) = $90

#### IMPORTANT

When using Malaysian odds mode in Nova88 CryptoSports with negative odds, the "stake" value in the bet slip input box changes to how much "profit" the player wants to earn, not the actual deduction amount. Let's take a look at an example below:

There is $1 USDT input in the betslip, but the actual deduction amount will $0.91 USDT. We can combine these values: $0.91 (actual deduction amount) + $1 (profit we want to earn) = $1.91 (max payout)
