How to play

To place a bet you have to choose the market that you want. There is Soccer, Tennis, Rugby, Basketball, Cricket etc. for this guide we will choose soccer, which is the default selection. See picture below

For this example we want to bet for Manchester United. I go to the tab where it says choose league, I know Manchester United is an England team and it plays in the Premier League. In the drop down menu i choose England then tick premier league and click update. This will show up all upcoming premier league games. See picture below

Now i just click on top of Manchester United, Ticket pop up will show in the right side of the screen, showing my bet amount (stake) and the payout below. See picture below

The ticket above shows that if i bet R10 i get R20 in return. When i am i satisfied i click Bet now.
If you want to risk small amount money and get bigger payout you would need to bet accumulators. By doing that you combine multiple teams, to win this bet all your selections must come correct. Losing by one team your ticket is dead. See picture bellow on how to bet accumulators

Betting for other markets

In sports betting there are some other betting markets besides win/drawwin. You Can bet for BTTS which means Both Teams will score, Goals totals, Double Chance, Corners etc. to do so you have two options. See picture below

Option 1. Click Choose bet type, it will show a drop down menu with different betting markets. 
Option 2. Click more bets, it will expand and list all the available markets.

How to Win

We all join betting to make money, but then it becomes the opposite, we lose money. 
The main reason why we lose is that we want to make fortunes with low stakes, thats aiming to win R10 000 with only R10. Yes its possible if you are lucky, 
When you are new to betting start by wagering R10 just to win atleast R30, once you understand all the good strategies increase the stake and aim to make more.
Checking head to head, team form , line up, teams news and injuries is the key to longterm success.
Accepting lose is part of success, dont expect to win on every ticket you bet, try to be disciplined by not letting your emotions drives you
