The main window
In this view, you will see simple arb data such as arbitrage percentage, participants, oddstype, bookmakers and odds.
Opens the Options window
Shows/hides the calculator in the Arb Details panel
We have placed some of the more common filters directly in the main window toolbar. Changing the minimum arb percentage can now be done quickly. You can also select one specific bookmaker to be required, which is very useful when hunting for bonuses. You can also change the minimum odds required. If you want to have multiple required bookmakers, you can make these changes under Options/Bookmakers.
The arb list
Every arb-row in RebelBetting is expandable. By clicking on the “+” (next to the arb percentage) you’ll see the odds on other bookmakers for that match. The best odds will be selected by default (depending on any specific filters you might have set).
Some details of the selected arb above:
- It is a 4.8% arb
- The participants are T Alves vs A Begemann
- It is a MoneyLine (ML) arb. This means that it is a 2-way arb (only two outcomes in the match).
- The selected bookmakers are Nordicbet and Centrebet.
- Panbet is not active in your bookmaker list (under Options), that’s why this bookmaker is greyed out.
- If you would select Marathonbet instead of Centrebet as the second bet, the selected arbitrage would be 3.6% instead of 4.8%.
As you can see, the arb has a symbol to the left of the arb percentage. These icons are shown in the main list to easily see which arbs are new and which have been improved or decreased. (You can of course configure this setting in the Options window)
Hide odds, arb or match
You can hide a specific odds, specific arb or the entire match if you want. This is useful if you have for instance placed an arb on the match and do not wish to see the arb again. Just right click on the odds you wish to hide.
- Selected arbitrage – Hides that arbitrage alone
- All arbitrages for selected match – Hides all arbitrages of that specific match
- All arbitrages with selected odds – Hides that bookmakers specific odds for that specific match
The Arb Details panel
When you double click on an arb row, you will open the Arb Details panel to the left. Here you can see more details about the arb you have selected such as how long the arb has existed, last bet date, event, sport, reliability and other notices. The Arb Details panel can also show an arb calculator at the bottom.
Most texts and controls display more information if you hold the pointer above them briefly.

With the calculator, you can calculate your profit of an arb without having to open up the Betting Browser. You can change for instance the stake of the arb, and it will be automatically transferred to the Betting Browser, once you choose to bet on the arb. You can also round your stakes to your choosing, and/or maximize the profit towards a certain outcome.
The Betting Browser
By clicking on any selected arbitrage, the Betting Browser will open. This unique feature of RebelBetting will automatically log you in to the bookmakers and find and select the bets you need to place to create an arbitrage opportunity. This saves valuable time and lets you bet on a lot more arbs before they disappear. The integrated calculator suggests the stakes you should place depending on the odds of the different bets in the arb, and also on your default total stake (defined by you under Options/User). If you change any number in the calculator, the other numbers will automatically change to the correct amount. You never have to do any calculations yourself!
The Betting Browser can be divided into two main sections. The Betting Windows (to the right) and the Arb Info panel (to the left).
The Arb Info panel
The Arb Info panel contains more detailed information of the bets you are about to place in the arb.
- The team you should bet on is Södertälje Kings
- The sport is basketball and the event is EuroChallenge
- Last bet date is today 19:00 (in 6 hours)
- The bookmaker is Marathonbet
- The market you should bet on is Asian Handicap (-2)
- The odds on Södertälje is 1.94 (or 15/16 or -106 depending on what type of odds you have set to display)
- You are suggested to bet 300 with your current total bet size
- The arb is 1.98% in average, and should this specific outcome be the winner in the arb, you’ll make a profit of 1.98% which in this case would be 11.30 USD

- Clicking on will restart the AutoSurf for this bet
- Clicking on will expand this Bet Window to full size (can also be done with F1-F4 buttons on your keyboard)
