Hi Guggi,

When we want to gamble on something,basbeall for eample,there often is an importnat person,you give your money to him,and he will give back more if you win.

1.How do we call this important people? He's a bookmaker, commonly called a 'bookie'.

2.How do we call these money? Money you give to him It's your bet. More formally, it's your wager.

money you win? Your winnings.

The words bet and wager are used to describe what you are betting on, as well as the money involved.

eg My bet is that horse #3 will win the race. My bet on this is $10.

Best wishes, Clive
