Sportingbet Edit my Bet
What is Edit My Bet?
The sporting action never stands still, so why should your bet? Edit My Bet gives you more control over your betting, allowing you to change any single or Multi bet that has Cash Out available. Gone are the days of placing your bet and waiting for the result – don’t like how your bet is going? Then change it! Feeling even more confident once the action begins? Add selections or increase your stake to boost your potential winnings. Bets can be amended by adding, swapping or removing selections, as well as adding additional stake.
When is Edit My Bet available?
You can edit any eligible bet which offers Cash Out and has unsettled selections where the outcome / result of the eligible bet has not already been determined.
This means that even if a number of selections within a Multi bet have already been settled, Edit My Bet can still be used if Cash Out is available. If Cash Out is temporarily unavailable, Edit My Bet shall not be available. For example if a selection is locked, Edit My Bet will be unavailable until that selection is unlocked.
How do I edit a bet?
You can edit your bet via the “My bets” section of your Sportingbet player account where the feature is shown as available. Simply select the ‘Edit Bet’ label on the bet card you want to edit; your bet will now be placed in “edit mode” where certain edit features will be available. If you change your mind you can always cancel any edits you’ve made before you save changes.
You must save any edits you make before the new bet placement is made. Once saved, a new bet will be placed which will reflect the edits you’ve made. If your edits are not saved, your existing bet will still be in place and it shall be subject to changes in Cash Out value or status e.g. if a market finishes it will be settled accordingly. This can affect the availability of Edit My Bet.
