SportX allows users to place three types of bets - Taker, Maker, & Hybrid

  • A Taker order will execute immediately at the offered odds of the bet offer
  • A Maker order will execute only when someone else takes your bet offer
  • A Hybrid order is part-Taker and part-Maker; it will take another users' bet (i.e. the Taker side) and offer the rest (i.e. the Maker side

Taker orders

  1. Either point and click on an offer on the order book, or enter a bet amount
  2. Click bet without adjusting the odds
  3. Confirm bet

Taker orders requires that the offered bet not be canceled in the interim period between from when you click on the bet and confirm it. If it is cancelled in that time period, the bet will fail.

Maker orders

  1. This is the same process as a taker bet; click on an order or enter bet amount
  2. Adjust the odds upwards higher than what any bet offer is currently offered
  3. Confirm the bet

Maker orders will show up in the "Offered Bets" pane on the exchange page. They only become active unsettled bets if another user takes your offer. They are cancelled automatically when the game starts, and can also be cancelled before then on the exchange page.

Hybrid orders

  1. This is the same process as a taker bet; click on an order or enter bet amount
  2. Adjust the odds upwards such that it's in-between two orders
  3. Confirm the bet
  4. (For Non-Fortmatic Users only) Also need to confirm the second-leg of the bet

Hybrid orders show up like a normal bet. The Taker-side shows up in "Unsettled Bets", while the Maker-side will show up in the "Offered Bets" pane on the exchange page until another user takes the bet.
