__How Combination Bet
Works__

*Definition:*

Combination bet is the placing of a series of wagers/stake which covers multiple selections in various combinations/groupings, meaning you can still get a return/winnings even if some are lost event.

In other words, after you have selected multiple events, you bet that only a certain number of selections on your ticket will be winning. E.g out of the 5 selections, you are betting that 3 will be winning.

**Example**

You have selected five different events as seen
below and opted for **3 groups**.

· **NOTE**: The minimum stake per
group bet/combination is #20 and this is wagered on each of those ten
combinations.

· **3 Groups** means that there will
be a total of **10 combinations** as
seen above.

· Your ticket wins if a minimum of 3 out of your 5 selections is correct.

· If all 5 selections are correct, you will get your full potential win.

· If 3 selections are correct, you will only get a partial win (not below the min. potential win)

· The
exact amount of the winnings depends on how many of the selections are correct.

A combination coupon looks somewhat like the

__How
the Events are Combined__

Below is an illustration of how the events are
combined using **A, B, C, D & E** to
represent the **5 events** selected.

The system will generate the 10 combinations of 3 groups as seen below:

ABC (1) = 1.95 x
1.34 x 1.26 = 3.29238 x #20 (stake) = **#65.8476**

ABD (2) = 1.95 x 1.34 x 1.41 = 3.68433 x #20
(stake) = **#73.6866**

ABE (3) = 1.95 x 1.34 x 1.38 = 3.60594 x #20
(stake) = **#72.1188**

ACD (4) = 1.95 x 1.26 x 1.41 = 3.46437 x #20
(stake) = **#69.2874**

ACE (5) = 1.95 x 1.26 x 1.38 = 3.39066 x #20
(stake) = **#67.8132**

ADE (6) = 1.95 x 1.41 x 1.38 = 3.79431 x #20
(stake) = **#75.8862**

BCD (7) = 1.34 x 1.26 x 1.41 =2.380644 x #20
(stake) = **#47.61288**

BCE (8) = 1.34 x 1.26 x 1.38 = 2.329992 x #20
(stake) = **#46.59984 (Min. Pot. Wins)**

BDE (9) = 1.34 x 1.41 x 1.38 = 2.607372 x #20
(stake) = **#52.14744**

CDE (10) =1.26 x 1.41 x 1.38 = 2.451708 x #20 (stake) = **#49.03416**

**
Sum = #620.03 (Max. Pot. Wins)**

**Note**:

· From the above breakdown, you can see that the total stake for the combination bet when summed up is #200 (10 x #20).

· The Group/combination with the smallest odd gives the ‘Minimum Potential Winnings’

· The sum of all the potential wins for each group gives the ‘Maximum Potential Winnings’

__How it
is settled__

1.
Let’s assume that events A & B are lost
bets while C, D & E are won, the **winning
combination group** from the above break down will only be:

**CDE** = **#49.03** (This will be the winning credited)

2. Let’s assume that events B & C are lost bets while A, D & E are won

The winning combination group from the above break down will only be:

**ADE** = **#75.89** (This will be the winning credited)

3. Let`s assume that event B is a lost bet while A, C, D & E are won

The winning combination group from the above break down will only be:

= **ACD + ACE + ADE + CDE**

= #69.2874 + #67.8132 + #75.8862 + #49.03416

= **#262.02** (This will be the winning
credited)

The above is applicable to all other combinations based on the events predicted won.

**Note: The more correct
events you have in your combination bet, the higher the winnings. If you fail
to meet the system criterion (e.g. when only one event is correct in a 3/5
system bet as seen above), you lose the bet. Hence, more winning bets means a
higher return**
