World Cup Bet Types FAQ
What does Win-Draw-Win mean?
Generally, this refers to the three possible outcomes of a sports fixture (home win, draw and away win).
In the case of the World Cup there won't be a home or away team (except when Russia feature!) but the layout of the market will remain the same.
This market applies to the 90 minutes of the match only, extra-time and penalties will not be taken into account.
What is Same Game Multi or 'SGM' bet?
Same Game Multi gives you the option of building a bet within a given match by combining a variety of individual markets together. You can find SGM by clicking the arrow next to any match selection, then hitting 'Same Game Multi' from the betting markets tab.
Once selected you simply pick your markets to combine them into a multi.
SGM will include all World Cup matches and offer a variety of in-play options throughout the tournament.
What is a Double-Chance bet?
Home team and draw - Your bet is a winner if the home team wins or draws the match.
Away team and draw - Your bet is a winner if the away team wins or draws the match.
Home team and away team - Your bet is a winner if the home team or the away team wins the match.
What is a Scorecast bet and how do I place it?
A scorecast is predicting the first goalscorer and the correct score.
Scorecasts can be found under the 'more markets' option next to any game listed on site. After selecting Scorecast simply select your first goalscorer from the left menu and score from the right menu. Clicking on the price offered on the right-hand side will generate the selection to the betslip.
We do not fully void a scorecast if the player does not partake in the game instead the bet is settled as a correct score single.
The first goalscorer part of the bet is governed by the same rules as first goalscorer single bets - own goals do not count and if your player either comes on before the first goal is scored or goes off without scoring, the entire bet is deemed as a loser.
Example - Sterling to score first and England to win 2-1.
What is a Wincast bet?
It is very similar to the Scorecast bet. This is a bet on a player to score in 90 minutes and the nominated team to win the game.
It slightly differs from a scorecast in that it is completely voided if the player does not take part, it is not settled as a single on the team to win.
If a player plays any part in the game he is deemed to have been active and therefore the bet stands.
Example - Sterling to score first and England to win.
In this event a dead heat is applied to all winning selections.
The stake is divided by the number of players tied for Top Goalscorer and paid out at the full odds.
