Soccer 4, from the same stable as Soccer 6, tests your knowledge of soccer to the limit.

Soccer 4 is just like Soccer 6, but with two big differences – only 4 matches (not 6) and 6 options to choose from per match (not 3). Soccer 4 is a real test of soccer fans’ football knowledge.

PLEASE NOTE: In Soccer 4 and other TAB soccer bets, the result of a match is the score at the end of the normal 90-minute playing period plus any injury time that may be played. Extra time and penalty shootouts are of no account.

Easy to Play, Tough to Win

This is how Soccer 4 works: To win, you must predict the results of the four matches in the Soccer 4 pool. In each match, one team is designated Team A and the other Team B. There are six results to choose from in each of the four matches (M1, M2, M3, M4):

  • Team A win by difference of only 1 goal (1-0; 3-2; 4-3; 5-4; 6-5 etc)
  • Team A win by difference of 2 goals of more (2-0; 3-1; 4-1; 5-0; 6-3 etc)
  • No-score draw (0-0 only)
  • Score draw (1-1; 2-2; 3-3; 4-4 etc)
  • Team B win by difference of only 1 goal
  • Team B win by difference of 2 goals or more

The computerised tote betting system uses numbers to denote the above options:

1 = Win by Team A by one goal; 2 = Win by Team A by two goals or more; 3 = No-score draw; 4 = Score draw; 5 = Win by Team B by one; 6 = Win by Team B by two or more. So when you bet, use Nos 1 - 6 to denote your choices. The same numbers are used to display results. M1 is used to denote Match 1, M2 for Match 2 and so on.

What does Soccer 4 Cost?

The cost of the bet and all the other rules are the same as Soccer 6. A single entry (one choice per match) costs R6 and the cost of a multiple entry is R6 per combination.

The cost of a multiple or permutation entry is calculated in the same way as Soccer 6. Simply total the number of choices you have made in each of the four matches and multiply them out. Then multiply that total by six to get the total cost in rands.


You choose 2 options per match. That’s 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 16 x 6 = R96.
You choose 3 options in M1; 2 options in M2; 4 options in M3 and 1 in M4. That’s 3 x 2 x 4 x 1 = 24 x 6 = R144.
