Football Coupons have become big business for the bookies over the years. Each week hundreds and thousands of punters make their win, lose and draw selections on numerous football matches as they aim to beat the odds and win big. The beauty of the football coupon is that you can often play with a small stake and then enjoy the rollercoaster of emotions as your bankers start to let you down and you begin praying for a dozen or so last minute goals. Even better you now don't have to head down to the bookies to make your selections as you easily play online.
The Football Jackpot
Coral have over 15 different football coupons to bet on! These include Televised Matches, Top Leagues, Euro Elite, To Win To Nil and a UK Coupon. The latter is the one most people will be familiar with where you select home, win or draw for various matches. You can then decide on your betting strategy using Coral's betting slip. For example you can choose singles, doubles, trebles, fourfolds etc. Acca Insurance and Cash Out is available on some coupons!
Coral is also the home of The Football Jackpot. This is a sort of football coupon meets football pools hybrid. Coral have selected 15 matches for you and your aim is to predict the final result of all them. If you get a full house then you'll be sharing a jackpot prize of at least £100,000. Consolation dividends are available for 13 and 14 correct results.
If you wager at Paddy Power then you'll find four different coupon sections - Acca Insurance, Sections, UK Sections and Long List. The sections categories allow you to select one, two or three teams from each section and get guaranteed odds.
However Acca Insurance is something that has become increasingly popular. Essentially the insurance guarantees you something if you miss out on a win! For example at Paddy Power, you'll get your money back as a free bet on football if one of your predictions falls down on a 5+ fold Win-Draw-Win Acca.
On every coupon there are several matches which you would consider as guaranteed wins - the bankers. Of course in reality they're always the bets that let you down! However Ladbrokes have kindly created a football coupon showing their list of bankers. These matches have huge odds for the underdogs. Ladbrokes have several other coupons including Champions League, Scottish League, Spanish League, German League and Double The Odds Matches.
You'll find most other bookies will have a dedicated football coupon section. For those of you who like predicting results but perhaps don't wish to spend any money then we advise playing the Sky Super Six game every week where you'll have the chance to win £250,000!
