I recall sitting with the founder of Best Sports Betting and placing some golf wagers on the Masters a long time ago. We were perusing the exotic markets on a popular betting site when we noticed something odd…
Generally, when the outcome of one bet is contingent on the outcome of another, they cannot be combined in the same multiple. However, this time, we were able to select a dozen golfers to all’make the cut’ in the same bet without encountering any betslip errors. Whaaaa?
Yup. Our wager was accepted solely due to a bookie error, but we weren’t about to complain!
After a few years, numerous bookmakers now allow punters to create their own multibets based on the same match. Therefore, whether you want to increase the enjoyment of your bets or create the possibility of a massive payout with a small stake, the Bet Builder or Same Match Bet Builder feature puts the power to win big in your hands!
Continue reading to learn how to combine bets on the same match, as well as which bookmakers currently offer this fantastic feature!
What Is a Bet Builder or a Same Match Betting System?
Bet Builder, also known as Same Match Bet Builder or Build-A-Bet, is an extremely useful feature that enables you to combine virtually any pre-match market from the same match into an accumulator bet. The only exception is when two distinct outcomes are not possible in the same match. For instance, under 1.5 goals plus Messi scoring two goals.
Which Sports Am I Allowed to Use a Bet Builder?
In South Africa, the Bet Builder feature is currently available only on soccer, the world’s most popular betting sport. However, if you contact customer support at some bookmakers, they may be willing to speak with their traders and assist you in constructing a same match bet in other sports such as rugby.
Why Should You Use Bet Builder?
There are numerous compelling reasons to use the Bet Builder feature at sportsbooks such as Betway, Sportingbet, and Hollywoodbets to place your next wager. Consider ordering from a menu at a favourite restaurant. At times, you crave steak but also crave calamari. Consider ordering both and receiving a discount.
That is precisely what Bet Builder enables you to do…
Predict up to ten different outcomes in a single match, and if all of them come true, your wager will pay off handsomely! Apart from the enjoyment of creating your own wagers, one of the primary benefits of using Bet Builder is that you can obtain significantly higher odds than on any single market. You can place a single bet for as little as R1 by combining all of your match predictions, which also results in a discount!
The Best Way To Use Bet Builder
The process of using Bet Builder or Build-A-Bet varies slightly between sites, but the basic concept is the same. Once you’ve grasped the concept, it’ll be simple to place these wagers with any bookmaker.
