Utilising Cash Out

What is Cashing Out?

When it comes to having a bet, we often focus on what it will return if it wins. The consequence of a bet used to be simply win or lose. Cash out betting changes that dynamic. We are now faced with a new decision, to cash out or let it run. If you cash out and the bet goes on to win, have you missed out on more money? with the flip side of winning money when the bet then loses. With so many questions, let’s break the process down and identify what’s in it for you.

Cash Out

Some bookmakers will offer the opportunity for you to take a guaranteed sum of money to terminate your bet before the event has ended. This facility is not available with all companies and will only apply to certain markets.

If you decide to cash out a bet, your account will be credited with the figure displayed and the bet is terminated. If the bet goes on to win you do not receive any additional winnings and equally if the bet loses you do not have to give any money back. The amount being offered will change depending on the time remaining and the current outcome. 

If you bet on Chelsea to win and they are 1-0 at half time, the offer you receive to cash out will change as the second half is nearing a conclusion. If your bet is losing you may be able to cash out less than your stake, more on that later.
