This guide will take you through how to play Live Football Studio at Unibet Live Casino, tips to mastering Live Football Studio and ways to improve your chances for big wins.
How Live Football Studio works
Live Football Studio is a fast-paced game and very easy to pick up. The premise of the game is to bet on either a Home Win, Draw or Away Win. This is very similar to sport betting, when you can place a Match Bet on the same outcomes. Often a Match Bet will look like this: 1X2.
In Live Football Studio, you have three bet types you can make. You can bet on a Home Win, which pays out at 1:1. An Away Win also pays out at 1:1. Finally, a Draw pays out at 1:11. The dealer will then reveal two cards — a Home card and an Away card — and whichever card is the highest is the winner.
Let’s walk through the stages of how Live Football Studio is played, so you can master the game with ease…
When you enter the Live Football Studio suite you will be seated in front of the dealer. They sit behind a green table — reminiscent of a football pitch — with a stack of cards to their left. The dealer will invite you to place a bet on Home, Draw or Away.
You’ll see at the bottom of your screen a table where you can place your bets. First select the amount of money you want to bet on the game. Remember, always set a budget and don’t bet above what you are comfortable with. When you’ve selected your betting chip, next click on the Home, Draw or Away area to allocate the bet. You’ll see the chip move over to indicate the bet has been placed.
Example: You bet $1 on the Away team at 1:1.
Once all bets have been placed, the dealer will draw two cards from their deck. The first will be the Home team and the card will be placed face-up in the Home area. The second will be the Away team and the card is also placed face-up. You’ll therefore see which team has won! If the card values are the same, it’s a draw.
Example: The dealer reveals Home 8 and Away King. Away therefore wins and you win your bet!
Live Football Studio additional features
There are two other features you should be aware of when playing on Live Football Studio. The first is the Undo button. You can Undo your bet at any time until the betting closes, simply by pressing this button. This option is particularly helpful if you accidentally bet on the wrong team, or click on more chips than you wanted to bet with. The Undo button is fast and immediately wipes the bet, moving the chip(s) back into your balance.
The second feature is the Repeat button. This is a good option for players who like to make the same bet repeatedly. To use the Repeat option, all you have to do is place a bet on a game and then click Repeat. The button will then place the same bet at the same value in every preceding game, until you decide to stop.
Example: You place $1 on Home and click the Repeat button. You play five straight games and Home wins on three occasions. Your bet totals were $5 and you made $8!
Tips to betting on Live Football Studio
Betting on Live Football Studio can be fun and there are some ways to maintain those excitement levels and potentially win big on the game. Here are some tips for betting on Live Football Studio:
Bet consistently - There’s nothing more frustrating than placing a regular bet, then changing your mind, only to see the regular bet is now winning! So many Live Football Studio betting fans like to bet consistently. This will either be by betting specifically on Home, Draw or Away, or betting a regular amount each time. If you don’t like being caught out in betting, then playing regularly on one outcome may be your best option.
- Set a bet limit - This is vital to ensure you enjoy your time in the Unibet Casino. Setting bet limits is always advisable, so you don’y exceed your budget. Every time you enter the Unibet Casino you should check your balance and make sure you’re comfortable playing with it. Each game in the Unibet Casino offers you the chance to Undo your bets at any time before betting closes, and you can also Repeat small bets on the Live Football Studio. Playing little and often is a far better way of enjoying any online casino than going All In on your first go.
- Eye up the Draw - Draws can happen in Live Football Studio just like they can in real soccer. Indeed, there are regular instances of draws in the Live Football Studio so always consider this option. The Draw pays out at 1:11 so if you’re seeking bigger profits than Home or Away then this is the bet for you. But remember, there is a greater risk here as Draw is less likely to happen. Some players like to place a small bet on the draw and a bigger bet on Home or Away, just to have the 1:11 Draw covered if it does emerge.
- Back your team - You’ll see which teams are Home and Away to the left of your screen. This means you can back your team if their name appears on screen! If you’re a United or City fan, then this may well be the incentive you need to back Home over Away, or vice versa. Backing a team is a great way to stay loyal in Live Football Studio and enjoy the game with a different twist.
- Bet percentage - Another way of mastering Live Football Studio is to see where other players are betting. When the betting is open for a game, you will see in each Home, Draw and Away panel a small number. This is the percentage of people placing bets on those bet types. For example, a game might start with Home 37%, Draw 12%, Away 51%. Clearly most players are backing the Away team here! The bet percentage offers an interesting insight into how other players are competing in the game and could sway your bets too!
