HOW TO PLACE A BET - BASICS


Is this your first time on a sports betting platform? No problem – here’s all the info you need to know, explained step-by-step.


If you visit the planetwin365 home page, you’ll see that we offer different betting categories:

If you look at the left column of the page, you will find a long list of different sports. Click on a sport to see all the events and competitions with odds available. planetwin365 offers around 700 betting options on most soccer games and over 30 betting options for tennis matches.
At the end of the left column, you find our Antepost Bets which are also called longterm or future bets. For example, you can bet on the winner of the FIFA World Cup or a Tennis Grand Slam, even though the final of that event may not take place for several weeks or even months.
When you click on “Live Betting”, a new page will open where you will find odds for events that have already started and are now ongoing. Therefore, the odds are continually adjusted to reflect the current state of play. Placing a live bet allows you to better predict the outcome of a game as you have had the chance to observe the team’s actual performances for a while. For example, you can bet which team will score the next goal or will win the rest of the halftime.

If you’re familiar with the different betting categories, we’d like to introduce you to the second chapter of the “sports betting basic knowledge” – the generic bet types:

Single bets are the simplest form of betting. You predict an outcome, select a stake and place the bet. If your prediction turns out to be correct, you win the bet. The winnings are calculated by multiplying the odds by the stake, i.e. you bet € 3 on the Double Chance Option “1X” with the odd 1.40 – your potential winnings are calculated € 3 x 1,40 = € 4,20.
If you select more than 1 odd, your bet is automatically displayed as a multiple bet. This means that you can bet i.e. on the winners of 5 different soccer games of you can combine bets on different sports in just one single betslip.

The total odd is calculated by multiplying the odds of all the individual events. This means that your total odd and therefore your potential winnings will increase with every event you add to your betslip. But please note: In order to win your multiple bet, ALL of your predictions have to be correct. Therefore, the probability of winning a multiple bet is also slightly declining with every individual pick you add to your betslip, while, of course, the potential winnings are skyrocketing due to our unique Bonus on multiple bets.

So if you place a deliberate bet and chose your events wisely, winning with planetwin365 truly pays off – check out the craziest winning betslips in the "winner of the week" widget on our website.

Our advice: chose a moderate stake and low odds when you try out multiple bets for the first time.
When you place a multiple bet, all of your individual picks have to be correct in order to win the bet. But there’s a way to reduce the risk – system bets! You can still win a system bet, even though some individual predictions may turn out to be wrong. Here’s how:

As soon as you add more than 1 odd to your betslip, the tab “combined” will be displayed within the widget. By clicking on it, all the possible combinations will be displayed automatically.

Here’s a simple example of the logic behind system bets. Let’s say, you place a 1X2 bet on 4 different Champions League games. Even if the favorites are quite clear, we have all seen some surprising events happening during soccer games! So you might want to reduce the risk of losing your multiple bet in case 1 of the games turns out differently than you have predicted. You can do this by placing a 3 out of 4 system bet, meaning that you only have to predict 3 out of 4 events correctly in order to win the bet. This results in 4 possible winning combinations:

• 2, 3 and 4 correct, No. 1 wrong
• 1, 3 and 4 correct, No. 2 wrong
• 1, 2 and 4 correct, No. 3 wrong
• 1, 2 and 3 correct, No. 4 wrong

Due to the 4 possible outcomes, the winnings can vary: the total odd is calculated by multiplying the odds of the actually correct individual picks. But don’t worry – our system is doing the maths for you ;)

What most of our bettors would do now, is that they would play what’s called a “Yankee system”. This means, that they would not only play the Trebles (3 out of 4 combination we talked about earlier), but they would also play the “Doubles” (2 out of 4 combinations) and a “4 fold” (4 out of 4). So they have all the scenarios covered – if only from 2 out of 4 predicted events turn out to be true, they win at least their Doubles, if 3 of the predicted events are true they win both, the Doubles and the Trebles and in case all 4 events have been predicted correctly, they win all 3 played combinations.
