How can we help you?

Pending bets

Bets placed in markets managed by instant match will be subject to an eight second ‘pending’ confirmation delay. This system allows customers to be matched at the current price whilst also protecting them from courtsiding and faster feeds.

If a material event occurs within this pending period, the bet will be made void.

Once the eight second delay has elapsed a new entry will be made into the account page to confirm the status of the bet (as displayed below).
