Bet Types

Single

A single is a bet on 1 selection in one event. Your selection must be successful to get a return.

Scorecast

A Scorecast is a single bet containing two elements:

  • first goal scorer
  • the correct score after 90 minutes of play

Note: Scorecasts cannot be used in multiple bets as they are a multiple bet in their own right. However, they can be added into a betslip along with other bets, for example singles or doubles.

Development note: when creating the payload for the Scorecast:

  1. the first part of the leg MUST be the first goal scorer
  2. the second part of the leg MUST be the match result

Placing a Tricast Bet

Double

A double consists of 1 bet involving 2 selections in different events. Both must be successful to get a return.

The stake for the second bet is the winnings from the first. This means that they cannot be two selections in the same event as they could not both win.

There can be no related contingency.
