How to start betting on football

You must have a sum of money to be able to play. It must be an amount you can afford to lose. An amount that you can both have and lose, as the saying goes. You should never borrow money to play. If you lose the money you borrowed, you will soon be in financial trouble. Debts grow faster than you can repay them. You should choose a gambling company that seems interesting and also has a good bonus and welcome package. Here you will find tips on how to play here on the site, you can choose when to play.

- An offer to new customers. There are several different types of bonuses, and you should definitely establish yourself with several different gambling companies so that you can use their bonuses when betting on football. You also get various forms of offers, promotions and different forms of bonuses all the time, when you play with your gambling company .

In/out games.

- Bet on the number of goals in the match. If you guess more than 2.5 goals, you bet on TB. If you guess less than 2.5 goals, you bet lower. This type of game has clearly become increasingly popular in recent years. Really fun!

Live odds

- You play during the current match. If you think a particular team is winning, then you are playing for that particular team. The odds change during the game and you can always bet on the team you think will win, or if you want to bet on a draw. There are also many other great forms of betting when it comes to live odds.


- 1 for the home team, X for the draw, 2 for the away team. It was actually the original game to bet on, if I remember correctly. Most of them, of course, 1, then 2 and, just as importantly, x. There's something magical about betting, and 1 x 2 is the ancient mother of all football games.


- You play for a team that leads by, say, 1.5 goals, or is trailing by 1.5 goals. You can also bet on how many goals the team can win. A game that has clearly grown a lot in recent years.


- About the same as the 1-X-2, but no cross here. You bet on which team you think will win, but if there is a draw, you get your money back. It's a good game when it works!

Long games
- Here you bet on which team you think will win, e.g. Allsvenskan, or which player will score the most goals in the next European Football Championship.

Cash out

You can close your games using the Cash Out feature of some gambling companies . This means you can end the current game and get a smaller winnings than if you had stopped the game. Good to use if the match stands or weighs you down, or you can also minimise your losses by using what is known as Cash Out.

Betting School

Keeping track of your bets

Keep track of your profits and losses. Keep a diary where you record everything about your gambling. Gambling companies also have a history that you can go into and check how you have gambled. You will also get a better idea of how different teams and individual players play when you keep a diary. You can easily go back and look before you play next time.

This is a really important point in your betting school. There is nothing to play with or neglect. If you want to become a good player in football or any other sport, you should definitely keep a diary of your wins and losses and keep track of how your bankroll is doing.

Knowledge and sense of betting

You will certainly gain more knowledge the longer you go. About different teams and different players. If you belong to a team and you know they are good, but they might not have the best players before the match, you might have to play for the opposing team. You will learn more as your interest grows and you will become more successful.

Just because you have your favourite team, there might be times when you shouldn't play them. The opposing team might sometimes have better conditions, and then you should of course play them. You should have a clear view, so to speak, which is part of the behind-the-scenes game for those who really excel at betting


TCM believes sour tasting foods retain the Qi energy in the lungs whereas spicy foods dispel it. So as a general rule, in the autumn, you should go for sour in preference to spicy foods. Here are a couple of recipes for you to try in this season.
Traditionally around September 8, the solar calendar point termed ‘White Dew’, Chinese families start making rice wine. This slightly sweet beverage is used to warm the body and to add its delicious flavour in chicken dishes and soups. It is also commonly used to add to the sweet soup that accompanies mochi rice balls. I use the Shanghai Brewer’s Biscuits (‘ Shanghai Jiu Bing Wan’ 上海酒饼丸). They are inexpensive and can be found in Chinatown in London.
1kg glutinous rice
2 Shanghai brewer’s biscuits
500ml water, boiled then allowed to cool

  • Wash and soak the rice over night.
  • Next day, steam the rice over a large muslin cloth till cooked and soft.
  • Carefully add the 500ml water into the rice, place the whole in a very clean urn and leave to cool further.
  • Crush the brewer’s yeast biscuits over the rice and press down on the rice.
  • Create a little ‘well’ in the middle of the rice, cover the urn with clingfilm and put the urn’s lid on tightly.
  • Allow it to work its magic in 2-3 days in a warm place like an airing cupboard. The fermentation process needs to be allowed to occur uninterrupted, so resist any temptation to open the urn to check on progress. A yoghurt maker or an instant pot with yoghurt making function would be perfect for this mixture at a constant 30°C .
  • When the precious wine liquid can be seen gathering in the ‘well’ is when your rice wine is ready.
  • Finally, keep the resulting home-made wine in the fridge, for drinking later or for use in cooking.

Mooli is slightly spicy. In TCM terms it has a ‘cooling’ nature. Cooking it brings out its sweetness, which helps your body to retain moisture and relieve excess internal heat. This is considered a way of nourishing your lungs.
100g grated mooli
3g Miya Senchagreen tea leaves
200ml water (for brewing the tea)
salt to taste

  • Add the mooli into a pot and add just barely enough water to cover.
  • Bring to a boil and cook till soft.
  • Season with salt.
  • Separately, brew the green tea.
  • Pour the tea on to the mooli to make this interesting and nutritious soup.

Here are a few acupuncture points you can give some TLCs for a more comfortable autumn.

  • Choose a fragrant tea, if you can, like Lishan Oolong , or an mellow aromatic one like Emperor Pu Erh 1998 Vintage .
  • Add freshly boiled water to 2 or 3 grams of tea leaves in a small cereal bowl.
  • Position your face over the bowl and let yourself breathe in the steam.
  • Use your hands on the edge of the bowl to keep too much steam from escaping.
  • Enjoy this experience for 10 minutes, then you can sit up and drink the tea!
  • Don’t forget, with a good quality tea, you can keep adding more hot water and brew the tea again and again.

If you tend to have cold hands and feet all year round, there may be a blockage preventing the free flow of Qi energy in your body. For a simple way to improve this flow:

  • Fill a muslin bag, no bigger then the palm of your hand, with some unrefined rock salt.
  • Warm the bag in a microwave.
  • Lie down on your front comfortably and place the warm muslin bag on your ‘ Da Zui’ (大椎) acupuncture point. This acupuncture point is the slightly protuberant vertebra just below the back of the neck.
  • Do this as often as you can, ideally every day.
  • You can also aim the hot water flow at the same acupuncture point when you’re in the shower.

Traditional Chinese doctors believe that cold air enters the body via the feet. Hence, they encourage you to bathe your feet in warm water.

  • Soak your feet in a barely warm water.
  • Then do is very gradually add hotter water.
  • When the first drop of perspiration appears on the tip of your nose, drain away the hot water and massage your feet dry.
  • Then lie in bed with the soles of your feet facing each other.
  • Do this in as relaxed a way as you can, staying in that position for about 10 minutes.
  • This will allow your Qi energy to flow more freely via the acupuncture point that affects the kidneys.
  • After that, let yourself enjoy a night of blissful rest.

Giving TLC to your ‘ Tai Yuan ’ (太渊穴) acupuncture point is a particularly good way to relieve a dry or tickly cough.

  • The ‘ Tai Yuan’ acupuncture point is located on the underside of the wrist, below the thumb.
  • Gently massage it 10 times in a clockwise direction.
  • Then massage it 10 times anti-clockwise.
  • Do this three times.
  • Repeat daily or whenever you can.
