Design of online betting system 

 Hello!

My name is Rafal, I am new to this forum.

Currently I am a Computer Science student, preparing for my exam in Software Engineering.

I am strugging with answering one of the sample questions to the scenario below. My understanding is that the system design approach should probably be a mixture of agile and plan driven elements but - since I've no practical experience - it's hard for me to decide on the balance and tolls that should be used.

I will appreciate any hints from experienced business analysts who were involved in similar kind of projects.

Thank you!

Any winnings, minus commission, will be placed in the account whilst any losses will be automatically deducted from the account.
