How to play our NBA Point Margin Pools

Learn how to play our NBA Point Margin Pick 5 pools which are on offer throughout the regular season and during the Playoffs. You can shoot for our Jackpots either as a Solo player or with Syndicates. Read on to see how you fill out your coupon…

Pick the margin of victory

You will need to pick within a range of points that you believe will be the margin of victory – the ‘Point Margin’. For example, if you believe the Nets will beat the 76ers but only by a slim margin, you should pick the Nets winning by the lowest margin available which would be between 1-4 points. If you are struggling to decide which team is going to win or what the winning margin will be, then you have the option to pick multiple margins.

If you pick the correct Point Margin for the winning team in every leg, then you will win the Jackpot or a share of it if there are other winning tickets in the pool.

What if the game ends in a tie?

If at the end of four quarters the teams are tied, we will be keeping the pool and selections in play until a winner is declared in the overtime periods. In the rare scenario that the game finishes in a tie, then the lowest margin (1-4) for either team will be credited as the winner.


If you haven’t managed a winning selection in every leg, you could still be rewarded with a Consolation prize. We pay out on tickets that hit 4/5 and 3/5!

Cashing Out

If the pool is in progress but no games are in play, you may be presented with a Cash Out offer if your ticket is still in with a chance of winning the Jackpot or a Consolation prize. Choose to Cash Out in part or in full by toggling the slider bar and lock in returns whilst there is still risk on the table.


Syndicates give you the chance to crowdfund tickets, so if you’re keen to get involved but aren’t confident on making the selections then follow a Captain who knows what they’re doing. Joining a Syndicate couldn’t be simpler.

Be the Captain

Consider yourself an NBA expert? Have a go at creating a Syndicate. You’ll have to fund the first 10% of the total cost of the ticket, but if it’s fully funded then you will receive a rebate of 5% of the total cost of the ticket in the following week!

Smart Pick

Use our Smart Pick feature to generate a probable set of selections. Feel free to tinker with them if you don’t agree with what Smart Pick has come up with.
