Sportstake 8 is a sports prediction game from Ithuba and the National Lottery. You play the game by predicting the first half and second half outcomes (1,X,2) of 8 predetermined match fixtures drawn from various leagues. What makes the game so challenging and interesting is that it is very difficult to predict the outcome of both halves.
Although that’s not a bad thing, as the difficulty means the prize pools are usually very large and not won by many players. We’re going to be posting our Sportstake 8 tips and predictions for each upcoming fixtures list below, as well as a general explanation on how to play the game.
If you are new to betting and would like to learn how to get started, we recommend you read through our Ultimate Betting Guide, which will explain everything you need to start betting online. We’ve also done a comparison of the difference between betting with a bookmaker and playing sportstake, and the results might surprise you.
