Odds, offers and coverage aside, there is one more thing to take into account when choosing a betting site - what features are offered. After all, if you do most of your betting in play there's no point signing up to a bookmaker who doesn't offer it. And if you're partial to cashing out a bet when ahead, you need to make sure your bookies covers the sports you bet on for cash out.
In this section we'll take a look at some of the most popular types of offers. We'll show you how they work, what to look out for and, most importantly, tell you who has what.
Live Streaming services are offered by a handful of major bookmakers and allow you to gain access to live broadcasts of a sporting event on which you place bets. These can include horse racing greyhound racing, football, rugby, and tennis, amongst others.
Betting live (or 'in play') is a feature offered by many betting sites, but the coverage varies significantly between sites. Coverage for smaller sports in particular can often be lax at bookies with a smaller live betting section. Meaning less events to bet on and lets bets you can place.
Cash Out offers you the opportunity to win early before a bet even reaches its conclusion. If you are concerned the outcome of your bet might be in danger, you can use the Cash Out feature to pull your wager and earn a profit.
