Ski jumping and sports betting have a few things in common. Both offer lots of excitement and ideally some worthwhile high flying! Risk-taking and a good feel for the right approach are required for successful ski jumping and sports betting.

How it works:
Visitors to the ‘FIS Skijumping Worldcup’ in Engelberg can place a bet and win money on who will be the winner or who will be on the podium with Swiss betting provider Sporttip. The principle is simple: first look at the Sporttip poster to see which ski jumpers are taking part. Then mark the number of the bet and number of the ski jumper on the betting slip with a cross and enter a bet of at least 3 francs. Finally keep your fingers crossed that your favourite jumps as far as possible and scoops a win for those who have backed him to win!
The amount of the winnings depends on the odds when you return your betting slip: if the odds are low, it means the athlete in question has a good chance of winning. With high odds, the chances of the athlete winning are lower.
For example: in the case of Andreas Kofler, the last odds before bets for the first jump close stands at 10.00 – this means that if the Austrian ski jumper wins, those who have bet on Kofler at these odds will win back 10 times their stake so their bet will have paid off!
The World Cup scene regularly visits the Gross-Titlis ski jump and Sporttip will be present at the starting line in Engelberg for the second time! The Swiss betting provider offers a chance to bet on international football and ice hockey games as well as the ‘Raiffeisen Football League’ and ‘Swiss National League’ in ice hockey. Traditional local sports are a fixed feature of Sporttip One. This year, Sporttip was present at the Swiss Wrestling and Alpine in Burgdorf and the Swiss Gymnastics Festival Biel with a wide range of betting options available.
The money flows back
The majority of the revenue from the sports bets and lotteries is channelled back into cantonal lottery and Sport Toto funds. There it is used to support non-profit projects for either mass sports or sports associations of different sizes. Through its partnership with SwissTopSport, Sporttip supports ski jumping in Engelberg as well as numerous other sporting events such as the Swiss Indoors Basel, the Beach World Tour Gstaad and the World Cup Adelboden.
