Essentially a soccer 1 is a wager placed on the result of one scheduled soccer match with a punter having six options to choose from, to earn a win.
On the bet-slip the punter will have the choice of six ‘results’ and can select one or two of the options. The cost of each bet is set at a R6 minimum, while bets can go up in increments of rand. If a punter places two bets (essentially earning a double chance) then the price will be double the initial deposit (minimum R6).
The winnings are calculated as follows: If a punter places a bet of R6 on a result then they will earn R18. If they double their chance by opting for two of the six options they will still win R18 but the bet will cost R12.
The result options available to the punter for each individual match are as follows:
In each match one team will be designated Team A and another Team B. This means no home or away status must be applied.
The bet slip will show the match – Manchester vs Liverpool – M1 and then the punter must put their number (5). This means Liverpool must beat Manchester City by a difference of only one goal.
There are many soccer betting tipster services that offer advice on leading matches for just this type of bet. Soccer6 (name of brand) for example uses African football guru Mark Gleason for their tips.
