In Play Betting Guide

In Play betting, also known as live betting, is becoming increasingly popular, as it allows you to place a bet whilst the game is progressing. In-Play betting gives you the ultimate thrill as you choose from hundreds of different bet types on different sports while the events develop. In this guide, you will learn more on In Play betting.

The Difference Between Betting and In Play betting

With In Play betting, the odds can change in a few seconds based on what happens in a specific sport. For the players, our live odds offer both excitement and a great opportunity for big winnings. Sometimes it may be wise to place a bet only after the match started. This is true especially, when you lack information or want to get stronger evidence on a prediction you’ve made pre-game. By betting In-Play, you can see how the match develops, how the teams line up and much more. The benefits are many when it comes to betting In Play.

It’s super easy to bet In Play as it works just as easily as betting before a match and the bet types are usually the same. When you navigate to our In Play section and the match that interests you, you will be offered lots of wonderful bet types. The odds here can differ greatly from the odds that were set before the match, depending on how the match has evolved.

The Visualization

The "Visualization" is our scoreboard when betting In Play. You can visualize the game through this feature. For example, in football, you can see where the ball is on the pitch, how it's moving, which team has the ball, whether there’s an attack or even a dangerous attack, as well as stats on the match. With the visualization, you see everything. It gives you information on the number of shots on target and off target, cards given in the match, number of corners, which match minute the game’s in and of course the score itself. The visualization also offers a heat map of the pitch, on which you can easily see where the most action has taken place. Unibet’s visualization is an excellent tool for when you’re betting In-Play!

Cash Out

Our unique Cash Out feature gives you the opportunity to cash out on a current bet before the outcome is decided, allowing you to secure part of your winnings or cut your losses. Let's say you've put a £10 live bet on Manchester United to win against Arsenal with the odds of 1/1, where the payback will be £20 if you win the bet. Manchester United leads with 1-0 but Arsenal dominates the game and are pushing for a goal with 20 minutes left in the match. The equalizing goal seems inevitable and your bet looks uncertain. Our Cash Out feature offers you the possibility to secure your bet with a payback of, for example, £16 by cashing out your live bet, instead of waiting for the match to finish and potentially lose your bet. The Cash Out feature simply gives you the opportunity to secure a part of your winnings by pressing the "Cash Out" button. The money will be credited to your account immediately.

Likewise, through the Cash Out feature, you can also reduce your losses. Let's say your bet is the same as above, with the difference that Arsenal are ahead 0-1. Due to Arsenal dominating the match, you don’t think Manchester United will be able to turn it around and win the game. Rather than losing your entire bet, you decide to reduce your losses and accept our offer by pressing the "Cash Out" button and get part of your stake back.
