# How are Clubhouse Tier Points calculated?

As you make sports bets or casino spins in the cryptocurrency of your choice, you accumulate points. In order to calculate your points earned for each bet, we will convert your bet amount into USDT at the live market rate at the time of bet settlement, which makes collecting points fair regardless of the cryptocurrency with which you are betting. You play. As conversion rates fluctuate regularly, we will compensate by always rounding points to the nearest whole number when calculating points earned (see below for an example in action). The formula for calculating Tier points differs depending on whether you play on the sport or the casino, which we will detail below.

Sports:

For sports points, we use the valid stake to calculate your points. The valid stake depends on the actual stake (which you entered on the bet slip), the odds of your bet and whether it won or lost.

The general formula for calculating your points is: 15 * Valid Stake * Point Multiplier

What is a valid stake? In most cases, a valid stake is the actual amount of your stake that you entered on the bet slip.

There is one exception however, if you win a bet with odds lower than 2.00, then the valid stake is the net win of the bet (Net Win = Win Amount - Stake Amount).
In non-mathematical terms, we'll use 3 examples to cover all possible scenarios and show how the valid stake formula works:

Example 1, winning a bet with odds of 2.00 or higher: Let's say the current conversion rate of 1 mBTC to USDT is 7.9547 and you are at Bronze level (point multiplier is 1x). You bet 1mBTC at odds of 2.00 and if your bet wins, your valid stake is your actual stake, which in this case is 1mBTC, which converted to USDT is 7.9547.

This means that you earn 120 Points with this bet. 15 * 7.9547 * 1 = 119.3205 (120 if rounded up)

Example 2, winning a bet with odds less than 2.00: Let's say the current conversion rate of 1 mBTC to USDT is 7.9547 and you are in the Bronze level (point multiplier is 1x). You bet 1 mBTC at odds of 1.50 and if your bet wins, your valid stake is the actual stake minus your winnings (i.e. your net winnings) which in this case is 0.50 mBTC , which converted to USDT is 4.

This means that you earn 60 Points with this bet. 15 * 3.97735 * 1 = 59.66025 (60 when rounded)

Example 3, losing a bet at any odds: Let's say the current conversion rate of 1 mBTC to USDT is 7.9547 and you are in the Bronze level (point multiplier is 1x). You bet 1 mBTC at odds of 2.00 and if your bet is lost, your valid stake is your actual stake, which in this case is 1 mBTC, which converted to USDT is 7.9547.

This means that you earn 120 Points with this bet. 15 * 7.9547 * 1 = 119.3205 (120 if rounded up)

Example 4, Half-Win Bet: If your bet is settled as half-won, you will receive half the points against the bet settled as fully won. With the stake and conversion rate in example 1 (winning a bet with odds of 2.00 or more), you would have received 60 points if your bet had been considered half-win.

Example 5, Half-lose bet: As with the half-win bet, if your bet is half-lost, you will receive half the points compared to a fully-lost bet.

With the stake and conversion rate of example 3 (losing a bet at any odds), you would have received 60 points if your bet had been considered half lost.

In strictly mathematical terms, the valid stake is calculated as follows: Valid stake = MIN(ABS(GGR USDT), Bet USDT)

If a "Price boost" is applied when placing a bet, your points will be calculated based on the increased price.

The following sports categories are excluded from the Clubhouse and bets placed in these categories will not contribute to your points: Betbuilder, Esports, Virtual Sports.

Casino: Just as with the calculation of sports betting points, casino points are calculated with the actual stake also converted into USDT at the time of placing the bet to ensure that the points earned are fair regardless of the cryptocurrency with which you are playing. The formula we use to calculate your points at the casino is: 5 * Actual USDT Stake * Tier Point Multiplier.

With that understood, let's use mBTC as an example to calculate your casino points.

So if you are at the Bronze level (the point multiplier is 1x) and you wager 1 mBTC (which, converted to USDT at the time of writing, is USDT 7.9547) per spin at a casino, you will get 40 points whether you win or lose your bet on each spin.
5 * 7,9547 * 1 = 39,7735 points (40 points when rounded).

NOTE: Not all casino games generate Clubhouse Points, please see the list of excluded games on the page Clubhouse Terms and conditions.
