In Play Offer
Generally, the large sports events always attract a lot of interest and customer account holders can capitalise on those by using offers in the biggest matches.
What is In Play Betting?
Football is one of the most popular sports offered by bookmakers. In play markets are offered on most games these days. Whereas you can still make a pre-match bet on a whole host of football markets, the ability to bet in play gives punters so many more chances to win big.
The odds on these in play markets can fluctuate as the game goes on but there are so many different things you can bet on in nearly every match that the most successful customer account holders will use various strategies to maximise their winnings. Or at the very least decrease their losses!
In play betting basically, means any bet that is placed once the event has started. You can change the whole course of your bet by studying the in play markets as the event progresses and use your expertise to good effect. To make sure you can qualify for any offer you will first of all need to have a customer account. If you don’t already then we will be going through the quick and simple process in a moment.
A possible scenario for taking advantage of the in play offer would begin with signing up to make a pre-match bet. This can be on any market from the first goalscorer to winning team to under/over bets.
Once the match starts you can then make your in play selection. You can choose from any of the markets available but the same deal applies as you need to place a bet on the same amount of your original pre-match bet. But the good thing here is that if that in play bet loses you will get your stake back – making it a risk-free selection!
It doesn’t matter how the first bet goes (although we obviously hope that it wins!) but you cannot lose on the in-play bet. If it is a winner you will receive your winnings and if it loses you get your money back. And you get a really good idea of football in play betting!
What Kind of In Play Bet Can You Make?
With the basic bets such as full-time result or first goal scorer selections, you have the opportunity to bet on more time specific markets as the game is going on. This obviously gives you the chance to win back money on lost bets as the match is in progress. You can bet on a number of corners or even who will get the next yellow card. As the match is going on you can bet on the same market more than once this way as well.
It should be said here that usually, in play offer only applies to the first in play selection you make. You can make as many in play bets as you like but the stake that will be refunded will be for the first in play bet you make only, with the same amount as your initial pre-match flutter.
Any full-time result refers to the score at the end of 90 minutes. But as this is about in play markets there are plenty of football markets to choose from where you can predict who will lift the trophy even if it is after extra time and penalties (and you will probably be able to bet on the likelihood of those outcomes as well!).
Cashing Out Your Bets
To give you even more control over your bets – and sometimes to get something back even if your bet is looking like it might not come through – some bookmakers have a cash out feature. There is no guarantee that you will be able to cash out on the bet that you choose for either your pre-match bet, or your in play offer, but you will be able to see on your betslip if that is the case at the time.
In simple terms, the cash out feature allows you to take some returns on a bet before the event has finished – or the particular thing that you are betting on is decided. If you have placed a bet and you think that that outcome is starting to look unlikely then you may be given the chance to cash out on your bet and at least take some money from the selection. The amount may be higher or lower than your original stake depending on the match situation but you may well think that ‘something is better than nothing’.
Keeping up with the score has become easier thanks to the ability to use smartphone or tablet devices. We have heard you can use in play betting on mobile applications of Betfred or bet365. After setting up accounts on these websites, we found it easier to stay up to date with the scores and overall progress of the games.
Placing a Bet
If you are fairly new to online betting you might find all the different markets, odds and bets confusing but we have noticed that bet365 for instance, makes it fairly simple to understand. Same applies to placing a bet.
The choice of markets on websites such as Unibet or bet365 is generally much the same for both the pre-match and in play bet and once you have made your selection you just need to click on the odds quoted. This will automatically update your betslip to the right of your screen.
If you are happy with your selection you need to enter your stake (how much you want to bet). You will be able to see your potential returns at this point and if you like what you see just click on the ‘bet now’.
The In Play Offer
The in play offers give customers a really good chance of keeping some money in their pocket. You can choose a strategy to give you more chance of a return, or you can just make your bets as usual. Hopefully, you win big on your pre-match bet and then follow that up with a successful in play selection. But it is really good to know that if you take up this promotion you will get some money back however your bets go!
