Types of Bets

There are many types of bets in sports betting. At Merrybet, there are basically two types that players can choose to bet and win real cash. Players may choose to bet on either Single or Accumulator type.


A single is a type of bet wherein there is only one bet on one selection in a single event. In order to get a return, your selection must be successful. To further understand this, here’s an example:

If you book a bet on a soccer match, e.g South Korea vs Japan, when you place your bet in favor of South Korea and the game ends in favor of SK, you win the bet. If you bet ₦1000 for SK and the odds for SK to beat Japan is at 15.50, your total winning will be ₦15,500. If in case your favored team draws or loses the match, you lose as well.

Multiple Bets/Combination Bets/ Combo Bets (Accumulator)

Also called a ‘Roll-Up’ or ‘Acca,’ an accumulator is a single bet that links together multiple wagers and is dependent on all the bets winning, this means all selections must win to have a return. One benefit of an accumulator bet is that the payoffs are higher than placing each individual bet separately.

 Predict the Game: Win the Game

The thing about sports betting is that players will have to make their bet on which team they think will win at the end of the match. While the odds that anything can happen during a match are huge, the end game results can still be predicted. Predictions give players an advantage to make reasonable choices on which team to bet. You can use reputable prediction sites which charges to provide correct analysis of each team based on previous track records and other info. It is also advantageous to do the analysis yourself (since it’s cost-free) based on research about the team players’ forms, track records and other information that can help predict which team has the highest probability to win.
