5.3.1. Single Bet
Single bets are the simplest form of betting. You predict an outcome, specify the desired stake and place the bet. If your prediction proves correct, you win the bet. The winnings are calculated by multiplying the odds by the stake.
(a) Single Bet via Short Message Service (SMS)
Here you identify the match you are betting on by its Match/Game ID. You tell us your prediction by adding it to the Match/Game ID. A Home Win is 1, an Away Win is 2 and a Draw is X. You indicate how much you want to stake by adding your stake at the end of the bet. 100 Kshs. is 100. So, to bet 100 Kshs. on a match with ID 6981, predicting a Home Win, you text the message 6981 #1#100 to our short code number 29050.
Next, a confirmation SMS will be sent by the Company to your registered mobile line confirming your bet with its possible payout (The winnings are calculated by multiplying the odds by the stake less withholding tax.
e.g. You placed BetID 8095 on Feyenoord-Wolfsberger AC, 1. Amount: KSH60.00. POSSIBLE PAYOUT KSH91.68. S-PESA balance: KSH505.87.
You can cancel a Single Bet placed via SMS within ten minutes from placing the bet, however not after the kick-off of the game.

Please note that a multi bet does not pay out anything unless all your predictions turn out to be correct. With a multi bet, you can combine up to twenty games.
An example of this would be: Man Utd win (1.35), Arsenal win (1.75), Real Madrid win (2.00). To calculate your possible winnings, simply multiply the ODDS FOR EACH PREDICTION YOU HAVE SELECTED 1.35 x 1.75 x 2.00= 4.725. This means that, if your three selections win, you will win 4.725 times your bet Amount. E.g. 4.725 x Kshs 200 = Kshs 945. Where 4.725 is your total odds, Kshs 200 is your bet amount and Kshs 944 is your possible win.
(a) Multi Bet via SMS
