First-Time Setup

To bet on SportX, you will need DAI to place the bet itself and a small amount of ETH to connect your crypto wallet to SportX for the first time.

The first time you visit SportX, you will see this setup bar: 

Click Start to visit the Setup page: 

If you do not have DAI or ETH in your crypto wallet, you'll have to deposit some from a crypto exchange (Coinbase, Binance, etc) or you can purchase DAI through Netcoins using an e-transfer.

Once you deposit DAI and a small amount of ETH, you'll see a green checkmark next to Deposit DAI:

Now you can click Enable betting in step 2. Click confirm when Bitski pops up.

You'll see a progress bar appear on the Exchange page. Wait for it to confirm with a green pop-up

Placing your bet

Now you're ready to start betting! Head to the Exchange page and select a game you want to bet on. You can pick this on the Markets pane. 

On desktop, it's on the left of the screen, on mobile, its at the top of your screen.

Here's desktop:

I want to bet on the Thunder vs. Pacers game, so I selected that. Now you need to decide on your bet type. We have the three most popular bet types in SportX:

  1. Money line (learn more here)
  2. Over/under (learn more here)
  3. Spread (learn more here)

Pick your bet type and your team (if applicable), enter the amount that you're looking to bet, and click Bet!

In this example, I want to bet 20 DAI on the Thunder to win, and so I'll go to the Money Line pane, enter 20, and click "Bet Oklahoma City Thunder"

I'm getting odds of 1.99 here to win $39.80 if the Thunder wins the match. I click the button and a confirm comes up to make sure I understand this.

Once I click confirm, there will be a final confirmation from Bitski asking you authorize the bet.

Confirm this dialog and the bet is now being placed. You'll see that confirmation bar again.

Wait for it to finish and congratulations! You've placed your first bet. A green confirmation should come up and you should now see your new bet in the Unsettled Bets pane at the bottom telling you the details.

If you win the bet (if the Thunder wins in this case), your winnings will automatically be deposited into your account. Nothing more for you to do.
