How do I win
For a Goliath to show a return, only 2 of the selections need to win, but if this would happen it would show a terrible return. The more selections that win, the higher your return would be. For a good Goliath, it’s advisable to try and pick selections at odds of 1/1 (for odds explanation see here) or greater. If you did this, you would only need 5 of your selections to win to show a decent return.
