In this example, we will show you how to place a bet on an English Premier League soccer game. First, click on the “Sport” menu tab located in the upper part of the screen.

Lastly, click on “Premier League” to continue.
（３）Select your bet type
One of the easiest to understand bet types is “1X2 Full Time” (also known as Match Betting or Money Line). A 1X2 Full Time 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) Aston Villa to win, 2 – Away) Newcastle United to win or X – Draw) Aston Villa to tie Newcastle United. In this example, we will pick Aston Villa to win, therefore we will click on the odds 1.52.

After clicking the odds that you would like to place a bet on, your bet selection will show under “Bet 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 under “Potential returns”.
Once you have entered the stake for your bet(s), next click the green “Place bet” button to finalize your bet(s).
※ Other Bet Options

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, 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.
1st Half + Full Time
A “1st Half + Full Time” bet, also known as a “1st Half Result/2nd Half Result” 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 Aston Villa – Newcastle United example, if the score at half time is 0-1 and the final score is 2-1, you would need to bet on “Newcastle United (to win 1st half) + Aston Villa (to win at Full Time)” in order to win the bet.
A “Total Goals” bet, also known as an “Over or Under” bet, 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.
Draw No Bet
A “Draw No Bet”, also known as a (0) handicap, 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.
