Dynamic “Bet Slip” with selections and bets
The betting slip of Bet365 has a very important place on the site, and you must follow it carefully. It is displayed at the top right of the screen and there you can see each bet or selection you have made. Of course, if you want to make a single bet, it is important to bet as soon as you click without adding predictions which you can place separately.
In the bet slip you will see the odd at which you are betting and it could change in every moment, especially in live betting. Also, if you add more predictions, you can choose whether you want to bet as a whole, on every single one separately, or with multibet or any other variation.
Of course, with each selection you will be able to see how much you could possibly earn, since the system calculates the combinations automatically.
In the bet slip you enter the amount of the bet you have selected. If the odd is changed, the system of Bet365 does not allow you to make the bet until you can see the new odd. You cannot bet on a match while it is blocked for some reason.
Closing bets with “Cash Out“
Maybe you want to cancel your bet or to withdraw part of it before the event is over? Bet365 offers you this option.
With the new Cash Out feature, you have full control over your losses, and you can withdraw almost all your money. Or you can set one part of the amount to remain as an open bet that will last until the end of the meeting.
If you feel like the situation is getting risky, for instance you have bet on a losing horse, dog, team or player, you are just one button away from resolving your problem.
However, closing a bet is possible only for matches that are selected by the bookmaker, as well as for some combinations of them in different sports categories – especially in football, basketball, tennis, horse racing and cricket.
Where is the Cash Out option at Bet365’s website?
To see this option, you need to log into your account. Next to your profile, there is a Cash Out (“Close bet” button), where according to your preference you can adjust the amount of the sum you would like to close. Confirmations about the amounts are done right there.
Moreover, in your profile you can see the matches on which you have bet, and their results.
With this addition to its software, Bet365 proved once again that it strives to constantly improve its platform, instead of just to increase its profit margins.
Here are the instructions for using Cash Out at Bet365:
- Make your selections;
- Place a bet of your desired amount and wait until the system confirms your bet;
- From the electronic slip select “My Bets”;
- See what the offered amount is if you close your bet. If it satisfies you, then press “Cash Out”
- Wait until the system confirms that the cash out was successful
In which cases should you use the Cash-Out option?
The author of this material has a bad experience with matches. Once, he placed a multibet for 12 matches, 11 of which he won, but the last match went wrong, as the team that was supposed to win, allowed a tying goal in the final minutes.
With the Cash Out function you can avoid such situations. You’d better take a lower amount before the last match and take the remaining amount offered for the whole slip.
We know that in soccer it often happens that one of the teams ties or changes the result of the match. We have seen dramatic football moments in the Champions League, UEFA and other tournaments.
So when all other matches are successfully predicted and there is a risk for the last one, do not take this risk, but get the money you already have earned.
Similar options like Cash-outs have entered the market and Bet365 is not the only one offering such feature. In the sportsbook of Betfair you can also use the Cash Out option, with which you can take advantage of special promotions offered in the site..
Watch your favorite sport events live via the live-stream option of Bet365.
Of course, the most popular events are these related to the European football, but basketball and tennis are also among the favorites.
Annually, the bookmaker streams over 40,000 sports meetings. Unfortunately, due to technical issues related to the location, not all of them are available, but the good news is that you can at least bet and follow the scores live.
The most popular live streamed matches are these from the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League. Of course, FIFA World Cup and UEFA European Championship are also very popular.
