About In-Play Betting

Published on: 08/08/2016

Betting on sports can be very entertaining but even more so when a bet is based on actions happenings during the actual event, this is called “In-play betting”, “Live betting” or “In-running betting”.

Originally, in-play betting was only offered for major sporting events such as world championships which are broadcast internationally. Nowadays, the Internet has made this betting option available for numerous sports, and many gambling shops and online bookmakers facilitate live betting by means of live streaming.

Prior to live betting, punters could only place a bet before the start of an event. Once the event got under way, no more bets could be placed. With live betting, all that changed.

With in-play betting, punters can continue to place wagers on various different outcomes and scenarios. This gives them the opportunity to react to swings of momentum during the play.

Rather than simply placing a bet on a winner, in-play betting allows for a larger scope with which to gamble upon many aspects of an event - for example, which player will score, how many goals will be scored, which player may be sent off etc. The possibilities are endless.

In-play betting allows for creative wagering, as it gives punters the opportunity to hedge bets during an event which can be useful in avoiding losses.

Established bookmaker’s web sites provide pages specifically focused on in-play betting. It is common for in-play betting to be arranged for a certain timescale of for just half a game. Wagering on individual players or finer details such as who will score is also an option.

Betting exchanges go a step further than the bookies as they enable punters to be especially creative and bet on almost any proposition that may come to mind.

To be successful on a regular basis, a punter should source the bookies that have the very best odds on offer. Comparing several in-play betting web sites can be a helpful way of achieving the best returns. In-play betting requires enthusiasm and concentration and this type of gambling suits opportunists and valiant risk takers. Whereas, traditional bets are based on a single choice concluded from careful research.
