How to Get Started with Online Sports Betting in Japan

Understanding the Different Types of Bets Available at Bookmakers

Bookmakers across the world offer a wide variety of options, from the traditional single bet to more complex multi-bet systems.

Single bets are the most straightforward type of wager and involve the bettor simply making one selection and placing their stake in it.

Multibets involve making more than one selection in a bet, each having its own odds and potential win.

Such accumulators are the most popular type of multi-bet system and involve combining several selections into one bet, with all selections needing to win for the bet to be successful. So, for example, in the J-League, you may back Vissel Kobe, Kashima Antlers and Cerezo Osaka to all win during the same game week. If they do, you will win. However, if just one of the backed teams fails to secure victory, your bet also loses.

System bets, meanwhile, involve combining several selections into multiple combinations, with only some combinations needing to win for the bet to be successful.

Understanding these different types of bets available at bookmakers is essential if you want to make informed decisions when placing your wagers on Japanese sports.
