App Key features:

Cash-Out

“Cash out” betting allows you to close a bet before the event has come to its regular close. This allows you to secure a profit if your bet looks like it is going to win before the event has naturally finished and means that you can eliminate the risk of a bet losing unexpectedly or towards the end of the event. However because of this the lower risk it also means a lower reward and only a smaller portion of your winnings is paid out to you. As well as this cashing out also allows you to minimise your losses by taking a smaller loss early if you think the final result of the event will be a loss for you.

Live betting in-play

Live betting or as it is commonly referred to, “in-play” betting is a very common and pretty popular feature which all of the big online bookmakers offer. In-play betting allows you to bet on an event while it takes place. This allows you to make educated bets based on what is happening in front of you and allows you to choose how you would like to bet. In play betting is commonly seen as a more exciting gambling experience due to its fast based and quickly changing nature. Along with the ability to bet on events live the feature comes with odds that update in real time. This allows you to place bets that at one point may have been unfavourable but have changed to be something you definitely want to give a crack! To tell how these odds changed you can simply look at the green or red arrows to tell if an odd has improved or decreased (as shown in the red highlighted box)

Live streaming

Live streaming with Virgin Bet works in a few different ways. If you have not deposited yet then you will only have access to an animation which depicts key events of the event taking place. However if you have deposited funds into Virgin Bet then you will have access to live broadcasts of the events you would like to bet on. Using this feature along with Live betting and the cash out feature can provide a fun and exciting gambling experience!

Acca betting

Accumulator or Accas betting is one bet made of multiple different bets all combined into one. For an accumulator to payout all of the selections need to win for the overall bet to win. Accumulators pay significantly higher odds than if you were to bet on your selections separately. This allows there to be an increased risk as well as an increased reward.

Next goal wins

Next goal wins is a type of In-Play bet designed to make games more exciting, even when they would otherwise be dull. For example a team may be 4-1 ahead and there is ten minutes left to play. Under normal circumstances there is very little left to bet on, nobody will be on the losing team to win, because they wont win, and the bookmaker is unlikely to accept bets on the winning team, because they will win. Betting on “Next goal win” means that you can bet on either team to score next, which is definitely possible with ten minutes left, and if they do, the bet is settled the same as if they won the match.
