Betting on sports is a favourite pastime for UK players. You can now place a bet on any sport around the world and you can do it at any time, thanks to the excellent mobile betting platform that Paddy Power offers.
There are many different types of bets to place, all offering different odds and markets. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a football fan, horse racing enthusiast or F1 supremo, placing a bet at Paddy Power is easy. We’re going to take you through the process step by step, so you can wager on your favourite sports.
We’re going to start with a basic singles bet, this is betting on a single market, like who will win a football match, who will finish first in a race etc. In this example, we are going to place a bet on a football match.
First, you need to open Paddy Power and head over to the ‘Football’ markets.
Then you need to find the football event that you wish to place a bet on. Here, we are going to bet on Stoke to beat West Brom, so we select ‘Home’ for a Stoke win. You can also select ‘Away’ for Stoke to lose or ‘Draw’.
Once you select ‘Home’, ‘Away’ or ‘Draw’, the bet will populate in the bet slip. You can then add in the amount your wish to wager on the bet. This will then display the potential returns of your bet.
Then, all that’s left to do is to hit the ‘Place Bet’ button.
How To Place a Double Bet With Paddy Power
You can also add another bet by selecting win, draw or lose on another football match, or any sport for that matter. It will add the section to the same bet and the odds will increase, along with the potential returns.
Selecting two bets is known as a ‘Double’.
If we pick Cagliari to beat Venezia, the two bets will display on the bet slip, along with a ‘Doubles’ field. You can then enter the amount you wish to wager on the bet and hit ‘Place Bet’ to finalise your wager.
In the case of this bet, both teams must win their games for the bet to be successful and pay out.
How To Place a Treble Bet With Paddy Power
You can also select three bets, which is known as a ‘Treble’ and if you add four or more selections the bet is considered an accumulator. Remember, the more selections in your bet, the higher the odds.
In this example of a treble bet, we have selected two football teams to win and a horse to finish first. The process of placing the bet is very much the same, you just need to make your picks, enter your wager amount, and hit ‘Place Bet’.
There the choice of sports bet you can place is endless. In football, you can bet on anytime goalscorer, win or draw (double chance), league winner, player to be booked and many, many more.
How to place a Lucky 15 bet with Paddy Power
One of the most interesting bets is a Lucky 15 bet. To place this bet you need to make four selections, and the bet will cover many possible outcomes for that bet, totalling 15 bets. Here’s how a Lucky 15 bet looks:
- 1 fourfold accumulator
- 4 trebles
- 6 doubles
- 4 singles
To win the bet, you need to get one of each of these types of bets correct. The Lucky 15 uses your stake 15 times, if you place £1 on a Lucky 15, your bet would be £15 in total across the different bets.
You can place a Lucky 15 on many types of sports, including horse racing, greyhounds, football and many more.
To place the bet, you need to head over to the sport you want to bet on and then you need to select four different bets. In this example, we have picked football.
Once you have selected the four different bets, the Lucky 15 option will appear in the bet slip.
You can then enter the amount you wish to wager. Any amount you bet will be multiplied by 15, so a wager of £10 will be £150.
Then, all you need to do is hit the ‘Place Bet’ button.
Then all that’s left to do is hit the ‘Place Bet’ button.
