bet365, one of the leading sports betting operators, has introduced a new and exciting feature designed to give their customers more control over their betting slips. The new betting method called Closed Bet is available for soccer, tennis and basketball and it applies to bets placed via desktop, mobile, tablet, iPad and their premium mobile sportsbook.
The new feature allows bettors to cash in on a bet before it is due to settle, but, for the time being, the option is not available to customers residing in Greece, Germany, Italy and Australia.
How it works
Provided you have placed a bet and are having second thoughts over the success of your selection, you can choose to exercise the Close Bet option and receive a settlement fee, with your original bet becoming void. Depending on the current state of your bet, you will either secure your winnings or cut your losses in the process. The current amount at which the bet can be closed is always displayed under My Bets in the top right hand corner.
The most popular bet types such as singles, doubles, trebles, accumulators, lucky 15s and more are all supported, but markets like Asian handicap, goal line, Draw no bet, scorecast and several others are excluded from the Close Bet method.
