## How do we calculate the Expert Metascore?

Metascore - is a weighted average converted score of a bookmaker assigned by leading betting sites on Runet. However, these sources’ scores may have completely different equivalents - 5-point, 10-point, and even letter grades. That is exactly why we’ve come up with a system that brings the scores to a common denominator. The easiest way to convert 10-point scores is by multiplying them by 10. The less obvious types of score conversion are as follows:

Conversion scale of 5-point scores:
= 100
 5,0 = 100 4,0 = 80 3,0 = 60 2,0 = 40 1,0 = 20 4,5 = 90 3,5 = 70 2,5 = 50 1,5 = 30 0,5 = 10
A = 100
 (A or A+) = 100 (C-) = 45 (A-) = 95 (D+) = 36 (B+) = 90 (D) = 27 (B) = 81 (D-) = 18 (B-) = 72 (F+) = 9 (C+) = 63 (F) = 5 (C) = 54 (F-) = 0

The resulting scores serve the purpose of forming a single Metascore, which afterwards receives a color code.

86
“Green” (80-100) – a good score, the experts highly recommend the bookmaker;
64
"Yellow" (50-79) – an average score, the experts mark both pros and cons of the bookmaker;
32
"Red" (0-49) – a bad score, the experts negatively assess the bookmaker.

Expert Metarating – is a variable and will be updated once a month, following the changes in experts´ scores on Runet.

## How do we calculate the User Metarating?

User Metarating is calculated just as Expert Metarating, except for the fact that its common denominator is 10-point, and not 100-point.

The 10-point scores conversion scale for User Metarating:

 5,0 = 10 4,0 = 8,0 3,0 = 6,0 2,0 = 4,0 1,0 = 2,0 4,5 = 9,0 3,5 = 7,0 2,5 = 5,0 1,5 = 3,0 0,5 = 1,0

There is also a color coding for user scores:

8,6
“Green” (8.0-10) – a good score, the experts highly recommend the bookmaker;
6,4
"Yellow" (5.0-7.9) – an average score, the experts mark both pros and cons of the bookmaker;
3,2
“Red” (0-4.9) – a bad score, the experts negatively assess the bookmaker.

User Metarating – is a variable and will be updated once a month, following the changes in users’ scores on Runet.
