How does CASH OUT work?
Cash out allows you to get money back on your bet before the event you are betting on is over. The amount of money you get back is determined at the time of cashing out and will depend upon the current likelihood of the bet winning – so it could be greater or less than the initial stake. On pre-match bets, Castlebet LITE offers the exclusive option of a 100% cash out for the first 5 minutes. When you place your bet, if it's eligible for Cash Out, you will see a Cash Out icon in the My Bets section and in your bet history. Please note that not all bets are eligible for Cash Out.
If your bet is eligible for Cash Out, pressing the Cash Out button for the bet will settle the bet. The amount listed in the Cash Out button will be credited to your account and the bet will be considered settled. If you have placed a K100 that has the potential to win K1,000, but you cash it out when early when the Cash Out amount is K200, you will be credited K200, regardless of whether the bet ends up a winner or loser. Once the bet is cashed out, it is no longer a running bet.
How do I place a multiple bet?
In order to place a multiple bet, you must add all your teams to the betslip first. To do so, simply navigate to the match you want to bet on and click on the selection you require to add it to your betslip. Once done, navigate to the other matches you want to bet on and click on the selections you want to add to your betslip. Each selection you click on will be added to the previous selections you chose. You can see your betslip getting populated by more and more matches as you select them. Once you are happy with your bet, enter your stake in stake box and submit.
How does Handicap betting work?
Handicap means you give the team you select a head start (or disadvantage) by the number of goals you select in handicap. Positive handicap means you give them an advantage. Handicap +2 means you give the team you select a 2 goal advantage, so you add 2 goals to their number of goals. A negative handicap means you subtract the number of goals from their goals. Examples. You bet Handicap (+2) on West Ham to beat Arsenal. West Ham lose 1-2, but the handicap +2 result means you add 2 goals to the West Ham goals, which makes the handicap (+2) score 3-2 for West Ham. So your bet is a winner. If you bet (-2) handicap on West Ham to beat Arsenal and West Ham win 3-0, you subtract 2 goals from West Hams goals. This makes the handicap (-2) result 1-0 for West Ham. And your bet is a winner.
In 3-way handicaps, you have the option of the draw. So if you bet on West Ham Handicap (-1) Draw, then West Ham must win by exactly 1 goal (result 1-0, 2-1, 3-2 etc..) for your bet to win the handicap draw. In this case, subtracting one goal from West Hams goals will make the handicap result a draw.
In 2-way handicaps, if you see a .5 in the handicap amount (-3.5,-2.5, -1.5, -0.5 or +0.5, +1.5, +2.5, +3.5) you don’t have the option of the draw. If there is no .5 in the 2-way handicap (-3,-2, -1 or +1, +2, +3) and the handicap result is a draw, then the selection is void. In a single bet, you get refunded, in a multiple bet, the selection is voided.
What are system bets?
A system bet divides your bet into a many bets, allowing some of your selections to be losers, but still having a winning bet depending on the type of system you choose. For example, if you have 4 matches in your bet and you select system 3, this will split your bet into 4 separate bets. In effect, one of your selections can lose and you’ll still get a payout on your bet. For example, If you add 4 teams to your betslip (teams A, B, C and D) and have a system 3 bet for K100, This will split your bet into 4 bets for K25 each. Your 4 bets will be as follows:
If all 4 teams win, then all 4 bets will have a payout. If Team A loses, then any of the bets without Team A in them will be winners. In this example, B,C,D for K25 will be a winner, but the other 3 bets will be losers.
The type of systems available for your bet depends on how many teams you add to your bet. If you have 6 teams in your bet, you can have a system 2, system 3, system 4 or system 5. Each system will split your bet into a different number of bets. System 2 for a 6 team bet will split your bet into 15 bets. System 3 for a 6 team bet will split your bet into 20 bets. System 4 for a 6 team bet will split your bet into 15 bets. System 5 for a 6 team bet will split your bet into 6 bets.
