People come to the Sports Interaction home page for one of two reasons. The first is that you’re interested in a particular game and you’re going to have a piece of the action if you like the price.

But there are also people who come just to see what’s going on. And you see that LeBron and the Heat are playing tonight and you like the price, and the Red Wings are on a run, and this is a particularly good Kentucky team, and you think: oh Hell, I want a piece of all them.
Thing is though, you want a piece of all of them but you’re not in love with any of them. You’ve had a long day, you just want some fun, not to do a load of research. What do you do?
Well, you can have a little piece on all of them using the Round Robin functionality on the Sports Interaction betcard. It allows you combine the teams you like tonight and hedge against the danger of one of them costing you your entire bet. Here’s how it works.
Every time you click a team or a player to bet on, it’s added to the bet card. When two teams are added, you’re asked if you want to place a combination. But once you make your third pick, the Round Robin tab appears. And what the Round Robin does is work out all the possible combinations and ask you which one you’d like to go with.
Say you’ve selected three teams – Lakers, Heat and Thunder. You can make seven bets in total from those three teams – there are three single bets, the three doubles (Lakers and Heat, Lakers and Thunder, Heat and Thunder) and the three of them all to win – seven bets.

If you like four teams, that allows you to place fifteen bets – four singles, six doubles, four trebles and the four-fold combination. All of these are listed on the betcard and you can add as many or as few of them as you like. And the Round Robin goes up to seven so if you really want a day out you can have 127 bets on those seven teams.
The advantage of a Round Robin bet is that not all your bets have to win for the bet to win. The more bets you have on, the more you can afford to lose, so it’s to your advantage to load ‘em up. The downside is that the more bets you place, the bigger the stake as you’re charged for each bet that makes up the Round Robin.
How you balance that out depends on your balance, your faith in the bets and a lot of other things. But if you want a bet with a big payout and some protection for a night where the ball just bounces funny for you, a Round Robin is the way to go.
