Max Bets and Payouts of All the Best Betting Sites

max bets and payouts
Running into the upper limits of action that a betting site is willing to book or the maximum amount it is willing to pay in a single day is not a problem reserved exclusively to the highest of high rollers. Even normal, everyday punters can run into this issue and it can result in a serious loss of value if you’re not prepared.

Maximum bet limits are certainly the domain of high rollers, but max payouts can affect just about everyone when you throw accumulators into the mix. Today, we will discuss how maximum payouts can impact everyday gamblers and then provide a big list of max bets and max payouts for all the best betting sites.

How Max Payouts Affect Average Punters

For the average punter, the issue of maximum payouts will almost always be related to accumulator bets. Accumulators (or parlays if you wish) offer the biggest payouts in all of sports betting and it is very possible to run into a payout limit with an accumulator bet that is not all that extraordinary.

This is doubly true for niche sports markets with lower maximum payouts. An online bookmaker may be comfortable paying out £2,000,000 on Premier League markets, but restrict smaller leagues (such as the Scottish 3rd Division) to maximum payouts of £100,000 or less.

One of the bookmakers I use occasionally enforces a maximum payout limit per bet of £250,000 for boxing. While writing this post, I put together a 3-fold accumulator at that betting site consisting entirely of large underdogs or draws and ended up with an accumulator offering odds of 19,651/1.

A bet of just £25 at those odds would return £491,300, completely blowing past my bookmaker’s maximum boxing payout. Placing that bet destroys any value I had for no good reason. I could have just as easily bet £12.71, saved the extra £12.29 and stood to win just as much (about £250,000) due to the maximum payout rule for boxing.

This issue is not limited to the bookmaker I used in that example. Every betting site has upper limits on payouts that vary by sport and by league. If you have a thing for big accumulators, use the charts lower on this page to find the betting site that best suits your needs.

One last word of warning: online bookmakers almost always have a line in their terms and conditions that says if an accumulator includes a mix of sports or leagues with differing payout limits, the lowest limit will take precedence. So if you place a 4-fold accumulator consisting of three Premier League bets (with a maximum payout of £2 million) and one boxing match (with a max payout of £250,000), the entire accumulator would have a max payout of £250,000.

Maximum Bets and Payouts by Betting Site

The following charts show the maximum single bet or maximum payout for all the biggest betting sites. In many cases, online bookmakers do not establish a maximum bet; they simply state a maximum payout instead. Bookmakers do not worry so much about how much you bet; they are more concerned with how much they pay.

Additionally, know that each bookmaker has specific rules regarding the payouts for individual leagues and markets. For example, English Premier League payouts at one betting site might max out at £2 million while the Belgian Pro League might max out at £100,000. I have only included the largest possible payout for each sport as a whole in order to make these charts legible.

I have included links to each bookmaker’s max payouts rules page so you can view all the details. These charts will get you off to a good start as far as forming a general idea of maximum winnings, but you should also check the rules pages for details regarding individual leagues and competitions.

It should also be noted that the terms and conditions state that these are the maximum winnings possible even if the bet slip shows a higher potential payout. I tested this myself by choosing a random horse from an upcoming race at 66/1 and input £5,000 as my bet. The betting slip showed potential winnings of £335,000 even though the T&Cs clearly enforce a weekly limit of £100,000.

The terms and conditions explain that the largest accepted bet is $2,500 per transaction. Additionally, individual racetracks may impose their own restrictions.

The thing to remember with US-based horse racing sites such as TwinSpires and BetAmerica is they do not offer fixed-odds betting; all wagers placed online are commingled with wagers taken at the track. Smaller races therefore tend to be restricted to smaller bets while larger races can handle just about anything you can throw at them.


BetAmerica does not publish maximum bets or win limits anywhere online, but we can deduce that their limits are similar to those of TwinSpires due to TwinSpires’ parent company purchasing BetAmerica earlier this year.
