For a long time, gamblers did not have the option of combining multiple markets within the same fixture to form one bet. Instead, markets from the same match had to be placed as a regular single bet. The invention of bet builders, something you will find at Betway, has made this a thing of the past, however.

Now at Betway, customers can choose from various markets, all within the same fixture, and merge them together to create one multi-leg wager.

How to Build a Bet on Betway?

Betway bet builder

Although we have explained how you place a Betway bet builder, some of you may be wondering how it works exactly. First of all, it is worth mentioning that Betway only offers this feature for football matches, as standard.

It is widely available within football, though, even for relatively obscure leagues like El Salvador’s Primera Division. As you might expect, low-profile matches come with a smaller selection of available markets compared to popular competitions like the English Premier League.

The bet builder means you can select a football fixture and combine several markets within that match to create a fully customised bet. The bet itself works like an accumulator rather than a series of singles, meaning only one stake is required to cover all legs. This does mean that all the selections of a bet-builder must be a winner to receive a payout.

To give you an example of a bet builder, let us say we went with Manchester United to win, both teams to score, Marcus Rashford to score first and over 10.5 corners. Here we have four selections, but all joined together to create one same-game accumulator bet.

If the first three predictions end up being correct, but there were only eight corners, this would be a losing wager.

Betway Build a Bet Markets

At the very least, you can expect the ‘core’ range of markets to feature within the bet builder options. These include markets like match winner, both teams to score, double chance, correct score, total goals, 1st half goals, and handicap options.

Bigger fixtures will come with a lot more markets than just these, though, also including options such as:

  • the number of corners
  • player to be carded
  • player to score x goals
  • first/anytime/last goalscorer
  • second half result/goals
  • goal bands
  • corners Over/Under
  • correct score
  • …and more

Essential Terms of This Feature

Betway build a bet is an easy-to-use feature, but there are some important terms and conditions to be aware of:

👉 Bet builders are not eligible for cash out, even if each individual market (placed as a single bet) is eligible.

👉 Bet builders cannot be combined with other selections from other games, including other bet builders.

👉 A bet builder must feature a minimum of two selections and a maximum of 10. Should you wish to cover more than 10, you will need to create more than one bet builder.

👉 Betway will prevent you from backing contradictory selections. For example, the correct score 2-0 and both teams to score. An error message will appear saying some selections cannot be combined.

👉 For goalscorer bets, if a player does not feature in the match, only that leg of the bet will be void. The rest of the bet will stand, and the payout will be adjusted accordingly.

👉 It is not possible to combine selections not listed within the ‘bet-builder’ section of a fixture. Markets outside of this page will only be eligible to be placed as single bets.

👉 Bet builders must be placed on pre-live matches; it is not a feature that is available in-play.


What is the BetYourWay Feature at Betway?

#BetYourWay covers the ability Betway customers have to tailor their own multiple bets for a specific match. Players can do this via the #BetYourWay builder, which is just another name for their standard bet builder, or by sending a tweet with a bet request to @betway. If using this approach, include the hashtag #BetYourWay in your tweet.

Can you put a built bet into an accumulator?

If it is your own bet builder creation, then no, this must be placed as a single bet. If, however, you select a pre-made bet builder found within the pre-built bets section, these multi-part bets can be combined with other selections from different matches to form an accumulator.

Is the Betway Build a Bet feature worth it?

For anyone wanting to bet on multiple outcomes from one particular match, then Betway’s build a bet is a fantastic addition to the site. It can be a particularly fun bet when watching a match live, as you can create a bet with a good payout on selections you have confidence in and ones that should maintain your interest throughout the clash.

How does the Betway bet builder work?

The Betway bet builder works by allowing customers to combine several markets from one fixture to create one single accumulator bet.
