## HOW TO CALCULATE FOOTBALL POOLS WINNING

Football pools winnings on fixed odds are the simplest to calculate when the maximum number of lines obtained have been secured (that is, number of lines have been verified). To calculate winnings just multiply the amount staked by the odd for the coupon, prior to that week. This rule applies only if it is a NAP.

However, if in a permutation, you get at least the minimum selection required, to determine your winnings, first you must know the lines of your selection, followed by your winning lines, which is determined by the number of correct outcomes in your selection. you can then calculate your winnings using the formula as shown below;

1. Multiply your winning lines by the amount staked per line;
2. Multiply the results (as obtained above) by the odds for the game that week.

For example: If you stake a permutation of 3 from 5, the total number of lines is 10. If your total stake invested on the coupon is ₦1000, that means the coupon was staked at ₦100 per line. If out of the 5 games,an outcome of  4 are correct, your winning line is 4. If the odd for that weeks round is 60, then your total winning will be:

4 multiplied by 100 = 400

400 multiplied by 60 = 24,000

Total winnings = ₦24,000.

Below is a formula you can use applying the same rule to calculate any winnings on the football pools.

Winnings = WL x CODD x AS

TLS

WL = Winning Lines

CODD = Coupon Odds

AS = Amount Staked

TLS = Total Lines Staked

Now, lets apply the formula to the example as above:

Winnings  =   4 x 60 x 1000      =    24000

Now, you can now calculate your football pools winning, if you don’t understand till now. Go through this publication again and again. See permutation table for advance calculations.
