Understanding Fixed Betting
The most popular way to place a bet is by fixed betting - that is, a wager for a particular amount of money (the stake). This is in comparison to spread betting, in which the amount that may be won or lost also depends on the final result, rather than just on the amount of the stake.
There are a wide range of different types of fixed bets available, from simple win or place bets, to the ultimate in multiple bets: the goliaths - a complex combination of a massive 247 bets. However, you're not limited to betting on the final result or score - there are opportunities to predict the winning margin, who will score first, or whether a particular game will be high- or low-scoring.
In this section, we take look at some of the most popular varieties of fixed bets on offer.
