    Twain Sport Guide – How to Bet and More

    Twain Sport is a new betting product from the minds behind the popular Betgames, one of the most popular betting games in South Africa. Twain Sport is currently available on Hollywoodbets and Betway, which offer the T-Basket game. T-Basket is an innovative head-to-head game organized by Hybrid Sports League. Two athletes compete on a court to score the most points for a win. Eight players compete in a single tournament and one player who wins both games in the knock-out stage becomes the winner of the tournament, and you can bet on various markets during the head-to-head matches, starting from as little as R1 a bet.

    How Twain Sport Works

    There are two half courts, side by side, with a basket and four ball racks in each. Two players have 60 seconds to compete. Players can take a ball only from the illuminated rack, which is randomly selected by a computer. The sequence for both players is identical. Each shot if worth either 1, 2 or 3 points, which is also randomly selected by a computer.

    The sequence for value points is randomly generated for every game. However, the two athletes don‘t know the value of each shot, or the result during the game. Once the 60 seconds pass, the players can take the last shot from the illuminated rack. Players find out the winner after the game. If the result is a tie, the winner is decided based on:

    a) The player with better shooting accuracy.
    b) The player with a higher ranking.

    Player rank is determined by ELO rating system. There are eight players in two groups competing in an one-hour length tournament. The best two athletes from each group advance to the playoffs where A group winner faces B group runner-up and B group winner faces A group runner-up. Semifinal winners compete in a single-game final.

    If two or more players have the same number of wins in the group stage, they will be sorted by following criteria taking records from the group stage into account:

    a) Winning percentage;
    b) Win-loss record between the tied players;
    c) Shooting accuracy in the group stage;
    d) Points scored in the group stage;
    e) Higher ranking.

It’s fun to take a few bets on the players, and watch the game unfold on the live stream, so much better than virtual sports. We’re not sure how popular it will be in South Africa, but it certainly appeals to those looking to bet on real sports that have a quick turn around. It’s definitely worth having a look at.
