With the FIFA World Cup in Qatar coming up this November and most of the world’s domestic football leagues in full swing at the same time, that’s a lot of betting action coming your way!
But what if you could place a bunch of those football matches together into one big bet instead of betting on them individually AND benefit from better odds by doing so? That’s exactly what combo betting offers and here you’ll find out how it all works.
What Is A Combo?
The word combo comes from combination, which gives you a better idea of what the bet actually is: a combination of multiple bets into one. Combos can also be called accas (from accumulators), multiples or parlays, but here at 10CRIC we call them combos.
A combo is a great way of combining two or more bets together to form one big bet. Not only is this a lot easier than placing lots of smaller bets individually, you’ll also enjoy better odds by placing combo bets, which we’ll explain next.
How Do You Place A Combo Bet?
What’s great about combo bets at 10CRIC is they are super easy to place. All you have to do is add the bets to your betslip, click on the Combo option at the top, enter your stake and click the Place Bet button.
Let’s use an example to show you. Under ‘World Cup’ at 10CRIC you’ll see all the upcoming matches and if you click one, you’ll see each team’s odds for a variety of markets. Nothing new there. To place a single bet, you simply click on the odds you want, enter your stake, hit the button and you’re done, right?
Well, instead of entering your stake, just carry on adding bets to your betslip. In the image below, we’ve added Qatar and England to win their respective matches:
You’ll also notice that we’re in the Combo section of the betslip, as indicated by the yellow highlight on the word Combo at the top. When you add two or more bets to your betslip, you should automatically be switched over to the Combo section. If you aren’t, just click it.
Because we’re placing two bets in one here, this particular combo is called a double. If you place three bets in one, that’s called a treble. Four bets in one is called a 4-fold, and so on.
Back to our double here, to place your newly set up combo bet, simply enter your stake as usual, then click the yellow Place Bet button and you’re done!
So to sum it up, here are the 4 simple steps to placing a combo bet:
- Add all your bets to the betslip
- Make sure you’re in the Combo section
- Enter your stake
- Click the yellow Place Bet button
Why Place Combo Bets?
So what makes combo bets so much better than singles? Well, apart from the fact that it’s much easier than placing lots of individual bets, you’ll actually get more winnings too!
To show you this, let’s take a look at those same two bets from the example above. If we were to place these bets individually, we’d get Qatar at 3.17 and England at 1.36. A ₹500 bet on each of these would return ₹1,585 and ₹680 respectively, for a total payout of ₹2,265, as you can see below:
However, switch over to the Combo section of the betslip and you’ll see the following:
In a combo bet, the single odds are multiplied together! In this example, that means overall odds for your combo bet are 3.17 x 1.36 = 4.31.
Instead of placing your two individual bets of ₹500 each, simply place your ₹1,000 on this combo bet and if you win, you’ll get a much bigger payout of ₹4,310 – that’s a whole ₹2,045 more!
You can do this for up to 20 different bets (which would be a 20-fold). The great thing about combos is the more bets you add, the bigger your payout if you win, and those odds can climb really fast!
Just remember that if just one of your bets doesn’t win, the whole combo will lose, so be sure to pick winners!
Combos: The Perfect Boost To Your Betting!
Combos are very handy for cramming in a lot of ‘sure things’ into one bet and they offer the potential for some really impressive payouts, much more than for each bet individually.
With the many World Cup matches now available to bet on, plus all the usual domestic league fixtures, now is the perfect time to test your prediction skills and go for the super inflated payouts offered by combo bets. Try a combo bet on 10CRIC today!
