How/when you win
From the 7th of April we changed, for your convenience, the column value from 0,30€ to 0,25€ and now:
A column is consisted of an event selection and a possible outcome for each one of them. In a simple bet you win when all selected events are correct. More specifically if you choose 4 events, all 4 must be correct. In a column with 12 events all 12 must be correct.
If you play a system bet, you just have to make as many correct selections as you have selected (system bet type). More specifically in the system bet type “5” (fivefolds) for 7 selected events, you win if you have at least 5 correct selections out of 7 events.
Decide how much you want to win:
That’s the beauty of the fixed odds betting.
In all Pame Stoixima games, fixed odds are offered for all events and outcomes.
Winnings for each column are calculated with:
If you play more than one columns, you will have to follow the same procedure for each column and add them at the end.
Β) The use of preselected amounts:
Multiply the preselected amount with the selected odds. For example if you choose 4 events with odds 1,70 / 2,40 / 1,45 / 3,15 and the preselected amount is 15€ then the total profit is 1,70 Χ 2,40 Χ 1,45 Χ 3,15 X 15€ =279,53€
Bet according to the amount you want to win.
Your total winnings are determined by the odds of events you select, and the amount you bet.
Each column costs 0,25€. If you use double play variations or system bets then more columns are formed, so your betting amount is 0,25€ times the number of columns formed.
For more winnings, you can increase your betting amount by choosing one to three numbers in the field multiplier.
That is, by selecting indication "5" you increase your betting amount by 5 times. By selectin "6" and "10" you increase your stake 60 times (6 x 10 = 60). Finally by selecting "2", "3", "20" you increase your stake 2 x 3 x 20 = 120 times.
With Pame Stoixima coupon you have the option of betting a different amount per column using the new section for the system bets: "SYSTEM BETS MULTIPLIERS".
System bets Multipliers (up to four) can increase your stake per column.
We choose 6 events and system type “3” (trebles) , “4” (fourfolds) and “6” (sixfold) which in total consists of 36 columns (20 trebles, 15 fourfolds and one sixfold)
Then select the desired stake: (column value X15) 3,75€ for each of the 20 trebles, (column value X3) 0,75€ for each of the 15 fourfolds and 0,25€ for the sixfold.
Thus (3,75*20 + 0,75*15 + 0,25*1) =86,50 €
If the desired stake exceeds a certain limit, then an approval procedure may occur.
The agent will contact OPAP S.A. Your bet can be valid as such or some argument concerning your selections or odds will take place.
This process aims to protect the players and in by no means limits the potential to win large amounts.
From the 7th of April we changed, for your convenience, the column value from 0,30€ to 0,25€ and now:
• You can make the most of your stakes to the last cent
(e.g. you can play 1€, 2€, 5€, 10€, 20€, 50€ etc.)
• You can easily calculate the value of your slip
• You have more financial options to participate in system bets
(e.g. you can play a 3/4/5 system bet with 4€ instead of 4,80€)
• You can easily calculate the multiplier of your slip
(e.g. assuming slip value of 5,00€ and with the new column value of 0,25€ the multiplier is 20)
A "System" is a codified way to generate columns from a selected group of events out of a number of required events.
In "Pame STOIXIMA" each system generates columns, which are different in regards to the events they include but not the predictions for each event.
For example you can select system "4" for 6 selected events, that means you can choose 6 events and request all possible four-folds (namely columns of four events) generated by these 6 selections.
Of course the number of required correct predictions must be lower or equal to the number of selected events.
Since the maximum number of selected events can be up to 30, IN THEORY these 30 events can be combined in all possible ways, by 1, by 2, by 3… and of course by 30. In other words all systems from 1 to 30 can be applied.
To play a system you have to enter in the slip the prediction markers and in the "SYSTEMS" field you enter the indication corresponding to the number of required events.
You can play simultaneously more than one system
To predict for example 6 selected events, you can enter in the field "Systems" the indications "4", "5" and "6". This means that you are playing all possible 4folds (15 columns), 5folds (6 columns) and the 6fold (1 column) which are generated by the 6 selected events.
You also have the possibility to select all the systems that can be generated by a number of required events and on (along with a simple or many simple columns) by entering the indication corresponding to this number in the field "SYSTEMS" and choosing the indication "ALL".
Namely, by entering "4" and "ALL" on 6 selected events you bet on systems "4", "5" and "6".
Systems including Standards
A standard is an event included compulsorily in all required events columns generated by a system.
By selecting systems with or without standards, you can use one or more double variants in your predictions by entering the corresponding indications ("1" and "Χ" or "1" and "2" or "Χ" and "2").
The selection of systems with the use of standard events has changed compared to the past.
In the new form of the game, the system code is defined solely by the required events WITHOUT INCLUDING in this the standard events.
Out of 8 selected matches, 3 are selected as standards and for the remaining 5 all possible systems, namely 3, 4 and 5, are required.
After systems 3, 4 and 5 are applied on the 5 initially selected matches, 16 columns are created: 10 trebles, 5 four-folds and 1 five-fold.
After the addition of the 3 Standard matches in each of the previously mentioned columns there are:
- 10 six-folds (each one includes 3 out of 5 initially selected matches + 3 Standards)
- 5 seven-folds (each one includes 4 out of 5 initially selected matches + 3 Standards) and
- 1 eight-fold (each one includes 5 out of 5 initially selected matches + 3 Standards).
From these examples it becomes obvious that Standard events "increase" the columns by the number of the Standard events – a three-fold with the addition of 3 Standards becomes a six-fold, while with the addition of 4 standards becomes a seven-fold.
According to the definition of a Standard event, it is only logical to assume that since they are considered relatively "certain" selections you should be allowed to play these standard events as stand alones in the same bet. This is why System "0" was created.
A system "0" is a column consisting ONLY of the standard events you have selected.
In the selected systems of the previous example you can add system "0", so in total you have 17 columns, the 16 aforementioned and 1 treble consisting exclusively of the standard matches.
Organization and grouping of selections
In the new Pame Stoixima coupon Group and R Group bets can only be placed through the terminal machine.
You have the possibility to "organize internally" the selected events in a group, without being forced to include all events in a group. The characteristic of the group is that its content is considered as one selection. This has as a result the creation of fewer columns.
For the software to be allowed to make distinctions between groups, the groups are "named" with the use of indications "A", "B", "C" and "D". The following 10 groups can be created: "A", "B", "C","D", "AB", "AC", "AD", "BC", BD" and "CD".
After the break out of the selected events into groups, it is obvious you have to use systems in combination with the groups you have created or, if there are any, with the events left out of the groups.
For all columns to win, all selected events have to be accurately predicted.
Let's assume you select 6 matches, which you organize into 2 groups, group A and group B. Assuming that group "A" includes the first three matches and group "B" the other three. You can apply systems 1 and 2:
From system 1 two columns are generated:
- A, which includes all the matches in Group A
- B, which includes all the matches in Group B
From system 2, one column is generated:
A X B, which includes all the matches in group A and group B
As mentioned before, for all columns to win all selected matches must be correctly predicted. Even in the case of one or more failed predictions there can be a winning, under the condition that all failed predictions are included in the SAME group.
In the previous example, if there is one or more failed predictions in group A, and then only column B, which includes all the events of group B, can win.
The extra opportunity of R Group is offered in order to allow group selections to not act as a "block", like the previously mentioned groups, but as a group of selections combined with the rest - outside of the R Group – ONE BY ONE without however allowing combinations between them.
To win while using an R Group, at least ONE of the R Group selections must be correct, whereas when using a "simple" group ALL group selections must be successful.
It must be noted that different selections of the same betting product can be part of an R Group.
Four matches are selected. An R Group, with 2 Correct Scores of the first match and a Final Result of the second match, is created, leaving the other two matches out of the R Group. System 3 is applied. From system "3" three columns are generated, each column consisting of:
- 1st column (Includes the first Correct Score of the first match + the two matches left out of the R Group)
- 2nd column (Includes the second Correct Score of the first match + the two matches left out of the R Group)
- 3rd column (Includes the Final Result of the second match + the two matches left out of the R Group)
You win if at least one R Group event and all matches left out of the R Group are predicted correctly. In the previous example you can be successful 2 columns maximum, since in the best case scenario only one out of the 2 Correct Scores of the first match can be accurately predicted.
Six matches are selected with codes 110,111,210,211,317 και 326.
Events with codes:
We place a 2 / 3 system bet, 7 columns (5 doubles and 2 trebles). Stake is different for each column.
Two trebles are created:
