About Metareviews

We created Metarating so that you don’t need to collect scattered data on bookmakers all over the Internet. Now, in order to find out the weighted average score of any given bookmaker, you just need to visit one site. Metaratings.ru will provide you with the most objective figures based on data from all leading betting sites, as well as players’ reviews and ratings.

What is more important - the experts’ or players’ score?

Why choose between your head and heart if you can listen to both. So we offer you our combo - Expert Metarating and User Metarating.

92
Expert Metaraiting is displayed on a 100-point scale. The 100-point scale allows a 20 times more accurate (compared to the 5-point scale) estimation of a bookmaker’s efficiency and quality of activity.
9,2
User Metarating is displayed on a 10-point scale. The 10-point scale is a compact version of the 100-point scale, but at the same time it is more intuitive and simple, both for an average person’s perception and for independent estimation.

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
Conversion scale of letter grades:
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.
