Coupon Betting Term Meaning

By definition, a coupon is a form that can be filled in and used to purchase or get something, and the betting term meaning for a ‘coupon’ is exactly that.

Those old enough will be familiar with the most famous coupon of them all: The Football Pools Coupon. Every week thousands of players would sit down with a pen and put their crosses next to the list of matches that they believed would end in a draw.

While the traditional Football Pools is not as common these days, the coupon has lived on in the world of online sports betting. The coupon is no more than a list with the aim being to make betting quick and easy. 

Essentially, you can have a coupon for any sport or racing event but true to its roots, the majority of betting coupons are reserved for football.

How to Place a Bet on a Football Coupon

When you click on a specific coupon tab, the list will appear. Below you can see a sample from today’s Both Teams To Score coupon at Ladbrokes.

All that is required is to click on the ‘Yes/No’ odds for the match you want and that selection will be added to your bet slip.
