How To Play Sportstake 8
In this game, players predict the outcome of preselected football matches for the first and second half. Each entry ticket costs just R2.
To play, you only have to predict the outcome for each half of the eight featured games. You can select “1” for a home win, “X” for a draw, or “2” for an away win. The grid is deliberately split into 16, making it easy for you to enter your prediction for each half.
There are four boards on each coupon, which you can complete as you please. You are to select “multi play” if you are picking more than one outcome for each half. Thereafter purchase your entries.
You may also opt for the “Propick.” This is so-called because the computer does the picking for you based on analysis of previous match results.
Sounds simple, right? You can play the game online or in-store.
