Different types of betting

The above explanation is for a basic 1×2 bet when you are betting on the straight outcome of the game. Online betting offers many different betting options and you don’t just have to bet on who the winner might be. You can place bets on:
  • Which team will score first
  • Which player will score first
  • Who will be winning at Half Time
  • How many cards will be handed out
  • How many goals will be scored
  • And so much more
You can also place multi-bets, these are bet slips that have more than one prediction on them thus increasing your odds. But, remember the more games you select the harder it is to predict them all correctly. We have a handy guide on how odds work if you are unsure of this.

Practice and play around

Majority of online betting websites work the way we have explained but the best way to get to grips with things is to just play around a little. When we say play around we don’t mean hit the “Bet Now” button. We mean explore the website and see what they have on offer, select the different bets and check the outcomes, take a look at the different betting options and test out how handicaps work. When you are ready and confident with your bet that is when you can hit the button and place that bet.
