How to Play

Sports Betting Africa offers a wide range of football betting games to add to the thrill of watching all the top matches. Study the form of teams and players and use your own opinions to help predict results and have a chance of multiplying your cash.

You can bet on the outcome of the game at the end of 90 minutes play (including any stoppage time).
The 3 possible outcomes are 1, X or 2:

  • Bet 1 for the Home Team to Win
  • Bet X for a Draw
  • Bet 2 for the Away Team to Win

Example: Man Utd Vs Chelsea

Odds for the 3 outcomes are: Man Utd (2.3), Draw (3.2), Chelsea (2.9)

The lower the odds are (1.01 is the minimum possible), the more the chosen event is likely to occur. A high odds means that the associated result is less likely but the potential gain is much higher.

This odds value is based on multiple criteria involving the team rankings, recent results and the form of the players.

When placing a bet, remember that all bets are based on normal time. This is usually 90 minutes though can include time added by the referee in respect of injuries and other stoppages. This does not include any extra time or penalty shoot-outs.

How to calculate your winnings

For a single bet, your winnings are calculated by multiplying your stake (how much you bet) by the odds of your chosen selection, which has to win.

For a multiple bet, your winnings are calculated by multiplying your stake by the “product” of the odds for your chosen selections. All of your selections have to win. For example, if you bet 6 teams, then you only win if all 6 win, if 5 win you lose.

Example: Man Utd (2.3) Draw (3.2) Chelsea (2.9)

Bet 1 000 UGX on Man Utd to win (Choose 1 for home team) and if they win, you WIN:

1 000 (Stake) x 2.3 (Odds for Utd) = 2 300 UGX

Example: Man Utd (2.3) Draw (3.2) Chelsea (2.9)Barcelona (2) Draw (3.4) Real Madrid (3.6) AC Milan (3.2) Draw (3) Inter Milan (2.1)

Bet 1 000 UGX on Man Utd (1), Real Madrid (2) and AC Milan to Draw (X), if all 3 are correct, you WIN:
1 000 x 2.3 (Man Utd Odds) x 3.6 (Real Madrid Odds) x 3 (Draw Odds) = 8 280 UGX
