Please note that you'll need to register an account before you start betting. You can register an account by clicking here.
Once you've logged into your account, you'll need to navigate to and click on the eSports tab which can be found on the left hand side on your screen - highlighted above.
For the sake of this tutorial, we're going to have a bet on the CS:GO Epicenter match-up between Na'Vi and Ninjas in Pyjamas. Follow the four steps above to navigate your way to a selected event.
Once you've selected your event, you'll need to decide which team you'd like to have a bet on. For this tutorial, we've decided we'd like to back Na'Vi to beat NiP at odds of 27/20 (read twenty-seven to twenty). This means that for every R20 wagered on Na'Vi, you stand to win R27 should your selection win. Now that we've decided who we're going to back, we'll click on the bet option as illustrated above.
Once you've hit the bet button, you'll be presented with a confirmation slip which details the bet you've taken as well as your stake and what you stand to win. In this case, we've decided to stake R10 on Na'Vi winning the match. You'll notice here that the odds are now represented in decimal form (1.37) - that means for every R1 staked on Na'Vi to win the match, you'll win R1.37. So for our R10 stake, we stand a chance of winning R13.70.
It's important to remember that if your bet wins, you'll get your original stake back as well as your winnings. So if the above bet comes in, we'll receive our R10 wager back as well as the R13.70 we won successfully predicting the outcome of the match.
Once you've entered your stake and confirmed that all the information on your bet slip is correct, click on the submit as shown above.
Once you've hit the submit button, you can consider your bet laid! Click on the View confirmed bets link as highlighted above to see all of your confirmed bets.
