Betfair Cash Out originates from the betting Exchange. Previously, if you were trading a sporting event and wished to Cash Out, you were forced to do the maths yourself and work out how much you needed to either back or lay. Now, Betfair do all the calculations for you.

What Is Betfair Cash Out?

Betfair Cash Out allows you to lock in a profit or loss before an event has finished. Betfair do the calculations to offer you a real time value of your bet based on live market prices and with a single click you can ‘Cash Out’.

You can Cash Out on singles and multiples on a wide range of sports including football and tennis as well as horse racing multiples bets, both pre-race and in-running.

Betfair Cash Out FAQ

Below we’ve listed some of the most commonly asked questions regarding Betfair’s Cash Out feature along with the answers.

What Is The Confirmation Screen & How Does It Work?

The confirmation screen provides protection against accidental clicking of the Cash Out button. If you have the confirmation screen enabled and click the Cash Out button, you will see an overlay summarising your Cash Out position and will be required to confirm you wish to proceed.

To manage whether the confirmation screen appears, go to the ‘Settings’ tab at the top of the Cash Out page.

Why Does My Bet Not Appear On The Cash Out Page?

Cash Out is available for certain bets. To ensure Cash Out is available for your bet, please check that all of the markets have the Cash Out icon next to them. Antepost bets and bets on Enhanced specials do not qualify for Cash Out.

Does The Take Amount Include My Stake?

The ‘Take’ amount is the total amount that will be returned to your account (including your stake) if the Cash Out is successful.

Why Is Cash Out Suspended?

When betting is suspended on a market, Cash Out offers for Singles on this market or for Multiples involving this market are also suspended. If the value of the Cash Out offer would be £0, the Cash Out offer is also suspended.

Why Is There A Delay When I Click Cash Out?

During some In-Play events, delays are used to ensure that there is enough time to suspend the Cash Out when a major event occurs — such as a goal being scored.

Why Wasn’t My Cash Out Successful?

Cash Out offers are not guaranteed. If there is a sudden large movement in market prices, your Cash Out may be unsuccessful. If your Cash Out is successful you will see a Success message. If your Cash Out fails, you will see a Failure message and a new offer will appear.

When Do I Get My Money?

When a Cash Out is successful, any returns are credited to the account immediately.
