4.22.1. Single Bet
Single bets are the simplest form of betting. You predict an outcome, specify the desired stake and place the bet. If your prediction proves correct, you win the bet. The winnings are calculated by multiplying the odds by the stake.
(a) Single Bet via Short Message Service (SMS)
Here you identify the match you are betting on by its Match/Game ID. You tell us your prediction by adding it to the Match/Game ID. A Home Win is 1, an Away Win is 2 and a Draw is X. You indicate much you want to stake by adding your stake at the end of the bet. 100 Kshs. is 100. So, to bet 100 Kshs. on a match with ID 6981, predicting a Home Win, you text the message 6981 #1#100 to our short code number 79079.
Next, a confirmation SMS will be sent by the Company to your registered mobile line confirming your bet with its possible win (The winnings are calculated by multiplying the odds by the stake. (e.g 2.36*100=236)

An example of this would be: Man Utd win (1.35), Arsenal win (1.75), Real Madrid win (2.00). To calculate your possible winnings, simply multiply the ODDS FOR EACH PREDICTION YOU HAVE SELECTED 1.35 x 1.75 x 2.00= 4.72. This means that, if your three selections win, you will win 4.72 times your bet Amount. . E.g 4.72 x Kshs 200 = Kshs 944. Where 4.72 is your total odds, Kshs 200 is your bet amount and Kshs 944 is your possible win.
(a) Multi Bet via SMS
