Close Bet from Bet365

Were you the one punter with money on Bayern Munich in the Champion’s League final in 1999? Back AC Milan against Liverpool in Istanbul in 2005? Watch in Horror as Newcastle salvaged a draw from 4-0 down, when your money was on Arsenal?

If only you’d had the option to get out of jail early by taking a settlement whilst your selection was winning, and beat the fate lady luck had held in store for you. Well, thanks to Bet365, now you do.

Cue Close Bet. If you’ve placed a bet with Bet365 and you’re beginning to doubt the success of your selection, you can change your mind and take a settlement fee in return for your voided bet. Depending on the outcome of the bet, you will either be left with an early profit on a winning bet, or a reduced loss on your original stake on a losing bet now available for soccer, tennis and basketball.
