  • 2 What type of bets can I make?

    When betting on football you can choose our "Standard Markets" or our "Extended Markets" games. Any other sports are usually "Extended Markets" games.

    In our "Standard Markets" game, players must choose whether a game will be a Home Win (H), Draw (D) or Away Win (A).

    In our "Extended Markets" game, players can choose from a variety of options such as: Correct Score, First Goalscorer, HT Result or Both Teams To Score (BTTS).

    Each player has 100 points, in total, to "bet" on the outcomes they think will happen.

    In "Standard Markets" games the maximum bet on any one outcome is 40 points, ensuring that at least three outcomes must be predicted.

    In "Extended Markets" games the maximum bet is for each bet type.
  • 3 What happens at kick-off?

    Betting closes five minutes before the first event in the league starts.

    Once a game has started scores become "live" and the leaderboard can change.

    The leaderboard updates as the goals go in.

    If your bet is correct your score is calculated by;

    stake x odds (e.g. 40 x 1.46 = 58.4)

    Once the last game in the league has ended, the results become final and those at the top of the league win the prizes stated.
  • 4 Which leagues can I join?
