Player Bets | Ladbrokes & Mad Bookie
Madbookie and Ladbrokes both run the ‘Digital Sports Tech’ product ‘Player Bets’ product. DST is a leading provider of online betting software.
Through the use of a custom algorithm that analyses a players statistical data, Player Bets gives punters the freedom to customise their own player prop bets for a variety of sports including AFL, NFL, Soccer, NRL, NBA and more.
“We are always focused on offering our players the very best sports betting offering and experience, which is why we have integrated Digital Sports Tech’s innovative new Player Props product,” said Ladbrokes Australia Chief Executive Dean Shannon.
For us here at Bookie Boys, we bloody love it. We first began using the Player Bets product back in June 2016 through Mad Bookie, who were the first in market. Since discovering the product, we’ve hammered it with NBA and AFL player bets, and it really does give you a sense of freedom with your betting. It is also great fun.
How to use Player Bets
At the top of the main menu on both sites, select the Player Bets tab, this will open a new page which exclusively feature the Player Bets product.
Once you have entered the Player Bets page, you will be shown the following screen, where you can make and place your player bets from for all sports.
From here you will be able to customise your own player props.
Each sport will include their own different categories, however often not all the games or players for a particular round are shown, likely due to the fact that sometimes it is necessary to wait until the day of, or the night before a game to see the final lineups of players. That and also some players are just not worth selecting.
How to create your Player Bet
Because we mostly used NBA Player Bets this year, we’ll use these for our example.
The following example uses the 2016/17 NBA Finals Series
For the NBA example, there are basically 3 different types of bets that you are able to take, we’ll us Points for this example:
‘Head to Head’ Player Bet – Player A will score more points than Player B
‘Head to Head to Head’ Player Bet – Player A will score more points than Player B and Player c.
Single ‘Statistic’ Player Bet – Select a single player to score a certain number of points.
Combined ‘Statistic’ Player Bet – Player A + Player B will score X amount of points.
There are different variants of these, but they all stem from these roots.
This first Player Bet is an example of a Head to Head Player Bet.
We have selected Draymond Green to drain more 3 pointers than Kyrie Irving for the selected game.
You will be able to select and de-select players, swap the players around and change the categories all from this one slip.
As you make changes to your market, the odds will change automatically, with the odds for this market being shown as $2.63, with Draymond Green a clear underdog. Still, we took that bet (and won).
For this to be a winning bet, Draymond Green must sink more 3PT field goals that Kyrie Irving.
The second Player Bet is an example of a Statistic Player Bet
We have selected Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry to combine for 10 3PT field goals.
You will be able to select and de-select players, swap the players around and change the categories all from this one slip, as with the head to head bet.
You will also be able to change the ‘Number’ of field goals that you set for the market, for this example we have selected 10 3PT FG Made.
For this to be a will bet, Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant must have 10 3PT field goals made between them.
As you can see, the possibilities are endless with Player Bets at Mad Bookie and Ladbrokes.

Player Bets FAQs
Below are some of the more common questions thrown around about Player Bets.
Are singles paid out as a winning bet if the player hits their target score exactly?
Yes. Single bets are paid as winners if your player hits their target. For example, if you have a player to have 5 or more goals, your bet is paid as a full winner if that player kicks 5 goals.
What happens in a Head to Head in the event of a tie?
Head to Head bets are losing bets in the event of a tie, this is because the condition is for player A to have more than player B.
