Last updated February 7th, 2023

Welcome to Just Bookies’ Betting Explained section, your guide to betting terms, odds and rules. Learn about every aspect of sports betting by reading our glossary of explanations via the navigation menus above.

We have created a directory of gambling terms and we cover the basics through to the more obscure scenarios that you may encounter in the betting jungle.

If you are a novice gambler who wants to learn how to bet with the online bookies but are intimidated by the terminology or a seasoned professional who needs a reminder about Rule 4 deductions and the dead-heat rules, then we can help. If there is any part of placing a bet or bet types that confuses you, we have the answer.

Browse the menu to find the answer to your question. If you are new to betting and simply want to learn then we advise you read through each link definition in order.

If there is a question about betting that we have not answered then please contact us and we will respond to you by email with the answer and we will also add it to this ‘Betting Terms’ section of this Just Bookies’ website.
