STEP 1 of 4

Choose a category in which to bet. At the moment
we have three: Sports, Specials and Financial. Choose one by
clicking on the correspondent tab (screenshot below is a graphic
STEP 3 of 4
Let's say we choose the "Sports" tab.
We are presented with the sports page. Locate the event you
want to place a bet on. In this example we will choose the Nationwide
Division 1 among the many sport options (screenshot of one of
the options in the sports page shown below).
STEP 4 of 4
Clicking on the "Nationwide Division 1" link (shown
above) will take us to another page with further options, namely
the odds for Nationwide Division 1 (see below).
At the top of the page is the name of the market
(in this case win or each way); this is part of a drop down
menu where the other available markets for this event can be
found. In this case we will stick with "win or each way". If
we want to place a bet on, for example, Blackburn (top left
on the graphic) we click on the "bet" word next to it. The following
window appears... From this screen we can place our bet.
When you have entered your stake and set the options
for your bet click on the "Place bet" button (shown in the graphic
image above). A window pops up (shown as a graphic image below)
asking for confirmation. Review your bet details and click the
OK button to place your bet. NOTE: Once you clicked the OK button
there is no turning back, so make sure you are certain about
your bet and the chosen options.
To place a multiple choose your first selection
and then follow the same process you would to place a single
(described above) but instead of clicking 'place bet' click
on 'Add this selection to a multiple or forecast' This should
produce a page like that below.
The selection is now safely stored in the system.
To add more selections simply repeat the process. When you have
added all your selections to the bet slip click on 'view bets'
and you will be given a choice of bet types as shown below (this
will vary according to the number of selections chosen, see
our betting rules for more details).
Pick the multiple bets you wish to place and fill
in your required stakes - note that the stake entered is per
line and some multiples involve more than one line (the figure
in brackets after the name of the bet type tells you how many
lines). Next click on 'place bet'. As before a grey confirmation
slip will pop up. Review your bet details and if you are happy
with them click the OK button to place the bet.
For certain events coupons, a much quicker and
easier way of placing multiple bets, are available. An example
is shown below.
To add selections to your betting slip first click
on the white circle next to the price of all the selections
you wish to choose (a black dot should appear in the circle)
and then click on the 'submit' tab at the top or bottom of the
This will generate a bet slip no different to the one that would
have been generated had the selections been added one by one
in the usual way. If required selections from events not covered
by the particular coupon used can now be added to the bet slip.
When you have added all the selections you want
click on 'view bets' and follow the usual procedure for placing
multiples (see above).
The procedure for placing forecasts and tricasts is almost identical
to that used for placing multiples (though forecasts are usually
only available on horse and greyhound races). The difference
is that selections for forecasts must be from the same event.
To place a forecast choose your first selection and then follow
the same process you would to place a single (described above)
but instead of clicking 'place bet' click on 'Add this selection
to a multiple or forecast'.
The selection should now be safely stored in the system. To
add the second leg of the forecast simply pick another selection
from the same event and repeat the process. For a tricast or
combination forecast add a third selection (see our betting
rules for more details of what this means.)
When you have added all your selections to the bet slip you
will be given a choice of bet types on the drop down menu. Pick
the type of forecast or tricast you require and click on 'view
bets'. Then fill in your required stakes (note that the stake
entered is per line and some forecasts and tricasts involve
more than one line), and click on 'place bet'. As before a grey
confirmation slip will pop up. Review your bet details and if
you're happy with them click the OK button to place the bet.
