# horse racing betting

I placed a £1-00 e.w.cross bet £1-00 e.w. double today (not my normal bet) ladbrokes cashier said £3-00 stake. I have a first at 7-2 and a second at 14-1 (thanks Sir Henry) and cannot calculate returns. I normally use online bet calculator but it doesn't do e.w. x and doubles. Any help greatly appreciated please.
Cheers

 £6.46 for £1 e/w if the odds were a fifthbut I'm not familiar with a cross bet 21:23 Thu 31st May 2012 What do you mean by a cross-bet? I’ve never heard of it and I know a fair bit about gambling. Why were you charged £3? The £1 E/way double costs you £2. What is the other £1 for? Is it something to do with the “cross-bet”? In fact there are six possible returns for your place double, depending on the odds for a place offered by your bookmaker: 7/2 (one-fifth); 14/1 (one-fifth) = £6.46 7/2 (one-quarter); 14/1 (one-fifth) = £7.12 7/2 (all-up); 14/1 (one-fifth) = £17.10 7/2 (one-fifth); 14/1 (one-quarter) = £7.65 7/2 (one-quarter); 14/1 (one-quarter) = £8.44 7/2 (all-up); 14/1 (one-quarter) = £20.25 But I’d love to learn what the “cross-bet” is. 17:14 Sun 03rd Jun 2012
