1: Select a Market
Find the market you wish to bet on by clicking on the SPORT on the left hand navigation bar. All the EVENTS for that sport will then appear within the same area, grouped by date, competition or meeting. Click on the individual event to bring up a menu of all the betting MARKETS that are available at that time.
Step 2: Lay Your Selection
Click the green box for the selection that you want to lay. The shortest price available for layers for each selection is highlighted above the Lay buttons. The money amount displayed underneath the odds is the amount which backers are looking to stake at those odds. You can lay all or part of the amount at the odds. For example, if you want to lay Chelsea at 3.1 to win £100, your liability would be £210. If you want to lay Arsenal at 8.50 to win £50, your liability would be £375. The shorter the odds, the less the liability you incur to win a particular amount.
Step 3: Enter Your Stake and Odds
After clicking the green box, a betting slip will appear in the right of the screen. It will already include the best odds available to lay. You can alter these odds if you wish to make an offer of a price that is bigger than what is currently available. In the box marked 'Backer's Stake' enter the amount you are looking to win from the backer in the event of the selection not winning. Your potential loss on this bet will automatically appear on the Bet Slip. Once you are happy with your bet click the Submit button.
Step 4: Verify Bet
Once the bet has been submitted you will get a chance to verify your bet. After doing so, click Confirm Bet and you will be given a Bet Receipt confirming that your bet has been submitted. There are then three possibilities. Your bet may have been fully matched, which means you get whatever you wanted, it may be partially matched or it may be unmatched. Any unmatched bet or unmatched part of a bet can be cancelled or amended at any time. To do so straight away Current Bets tab at the top of the betslip.
Step 5: Cancel/Amend Your Bet
To cancel your bet click Cancel below the selection name and then click the Update button. Alternatively you can adjust the stake or odds of your bet (but not both at the same time). To do so edit the figure in the 'Backer's Stake' or 'Backer's Odds' boxes and then click the Update button.
