According to Mrs Marian Lamptey of Soccabet Ghana, Sugar Kwami's bet was based on the decimal odds, one of the three main systems in betting.
"In decimal odds, the bettor wins any amount of money he or she stakes times the odds stated plush possible bonus which makes the total payout," she explained to YEN.com.gh.
She added that"With odds of 1.61, 1.57, and 1.70 on the three matches respectively, Sugar Kwami's total odds stood at 4.30. This meant that he was going to win 4.30 times the GHC50,000 he was betting plus bonus"
