Before you start dreaming of winning it’s important to know a few tips of winning.

(1) Never bet high amounts as betting is addictive and you might lose alot of money.

(2) DO NOT HURRY : You Can’t win in a hurry, betting is a gradual process and you have to be patient with small wins.

(3) Do Not Be Emotional : Never put emotions when betting because if you do you will lose alot of money. Even if you like a team but they are not in form against the opponent then you might lose money. E.g Man United lost at home to Norwich when many expected them to win. Arsenal lost to Chelsea at home when Chelsea were in poor form (Chelsea always beats Arsenal in the league )

(4) Do not Revenge : Once you lose one or two bets in a row, take a break. Do not try to recover your money as you might end up depleting your funds.

(5) Always bet a maximum of 5% of total amount you have.

(6) DC is the way : Betting is much safer when you go for other options rather than a WIN for the team you like. Choose Double Chance as with that you reduce chances of losing.
