Pending bets

Bets placed in markets managed by Instant Match will be subject to a ‘pending’ confirmation delay. This system allows customers to be matched at the current price whilst also protecting them from court siding and faster feeds.

The length of the delay is determined by the competition the event takes place in.

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

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