（１）Log into Sportingbet
Click the green “LOG IN” button in the upper left-hand corner.
After entering your Username and Password, click the green “LOGIN” button to continue.
（２）Select the game/match that you would like to bet on
In this example, we will show you how to place a bet on an English Premier League soccer game. After clicking on “SPORT”, click on “FOOTBALL” located on the left-hand side of the screen.
From the list of leagues, scroll down and click on “England – Premier League”.
（３）Select your bet type
One of the easiest to understand bet types is “1X2 Match Betting” (also known as Full Time Result or Money Line). A 1X2 Match Betting bet means you pick which team you think will either win or tie. In our example above, we have three choices by either picking 1 – Home) Manchester City to win, 2 – Away) Tottenham to win or X – Draw) Manchester City to tie Tottenham. In this example, we will pick Manchester City to win, therefore we will click on the odds 1.45.
※ Note the date and time of the match below the team names. By default the date and time are displayed as UK time, which would be GMT+1 during March/April to October/November and GMT during October/November to March/April. The time zone display setting cannot be changed.
（４）Enter your bet amount
After clicking the odds that you would like to place a bet on, your bet selection will show under “Betting Slip” located on the right-hand side of the screen.
Once you enter your stake (the amount of money that you would like to bet), the amount of money (stake + profit) that would be returned to you should you win on the bet will be shown automatically in the “Total Possible Payout” section.
Once you have entered the stake for your bet(s), next click the blue “PLACE BET” button to finalize your bet(s).
※ Other Bet Options
If you refer to the screenshot below, you will see “+85” to the right of the game’s odds. If you click on this link, all available bet types (85 in this example) will be shown to you for this particular game.
Examples of other bet options
A “Double Chance” bet means that you can place one bet on two different outcomes such as 1) the home team wins or ties, 2) the away team wins or ties or 3) no tie score (“Team 1 or Team 2” in the example above), which means either the home team wins or away team wins.
A “Correct Score” bet means that you can place a bet on what you think will be the final score of the game.
A “Double Result” bet, also known as a “1st Half Result/2nd Half Result” or “Half Time/Full Time” bet, means that you can place a bet on what you think will be the correct outcome of the first half and also the final score. Using the Manchester City – Tottenham example, if the score at half time is 0-1 and the final score is 2-1, you would need to bet on “Tottenham | Manchester City” in order to win the bet.
A “Goals” bet, also known as a “Goals Over/Under” or “Total Goals” bet, which is always set at “Over X.5″ and “Under X.5″, means that you place a bet on the total number of goals that you think will be scored in a game. “Over 2.5” means that 3 goals or more would be a winning bet while “Under 2.5” means that 2 goals or less would be a winning bet.
A “Draw No Bet” bet means that you place a bet on which team you think will win. If the outcome is a draw then your stake will be returned to you and no loss will be incurred.
