Tips to win big on bet9ja

Lots of people bet, but not all of them are successful. Some people are now even in debt because of poor of poor betting habits.

This has made many people to say that betting is just a way for you to gift betting companies your hard earned money.

While this might be true for some, it isn’t true for people who know the secrets of the betting game and how it works.

You don’t even really need to be a sports expert for betting to be profitable to you, if you have the right knowledge, you can make money without even being interested in football, some people have even made betting their side hustle.

There are two outcome of betting, its either you win or you lose, there is no in-between. Now let me show you some few tips to keep you winning on bet9ja

  1. Don’t bet all your money on one game

There are lots of scammers online, you might probably have come across people who say they have sure games and require you pay a certain amount of money before they give it to you.

Some people will not only pay for these games, but will use all their money to bet on it, and when the outcome is not desired, they are left cursing their stars.

My advice to you is to never bet all your money on one game, no matter how sure, you or someone else might think it is. Bet only a portion of your money, and if the outcome is not desired, you will still have enough money left to recover your losses.

  1. Do your homework before placing a bet

By doing your homework, I mean checking all the statistics of the game you are betting on. Check the head to head, their previous games, the current squad etc.

Always keep up with news about your potential games to ensure, you have all the facts before placing your money on a desired outcome.

I have seen some people just select games just because the odds look favorable. Any experienced punter will know that odds don’t always tell the entire story.

  1. Don’t be too greedy

All punters have ambitions of hitting it big on bet9ja, but you should know what is more likely to happen than not.

Some people will accumulate too many games without doing proper forecasting, just because they want to hit one million at a go.

There is nothing wrong in winning small amounts of money consistently, the amusing thing is that even if you luckily hit a big amount, you might not realize that you have lost way more than the money you are celebrating winning.

  1. Never chase your losses
    There are days when it seems like nothing is going your way, every single one of your coupon is doing badly.

My advice to you is to take a break and try this next day, some people will lose a certain amount of money and will re-stake double the initial amount they used in playing in hopes of winning back their money. This can usually lead to them losing even more money.

  1. Follow experienced punters

Even if you are not very good at predicting games, there are people around who are very good and will give you games without asking you for a dime, you can find them on twitter, WhatsApp and telegram.

These people have years of experience betting and are usually more informed on games that are likely to go a certain way.

You can ask around and follow this people meticulously and in no time, you should start cashing out your money.

  1. Always play more than one ticket

Bet9ja can be a game of numbers, the more tickets you have the more your chances of winning, but you should be careful the amount of tickets you play, as you might just end up repeating games that you have already played.

If you follow these above steps, you should be on your way to winning big on bet9ja.
