Betting In-Play is about as exciting as an already thrilling pastime can get. The normal activity of betting is all of its own excitement, of course, from the moment that you weigh up your options and look at the form ahead of the start of the event through to the second that you place your actual bet. Yet betting ahead of time lacks an emotional connection to the moment, somewhat naturally stopping you from getting caught up in the action.

When you bet In-Play, on the other hand, it’s all about your visceral reaction to what’s taking place in front of you. Some people can stay free of emotion, of course, but most of us get wrapped up in what we’re watching. That’s why it’s so much more entertaining to bet In-Play, because we need to go with our gut instinct based on what we’re seeing occur in front of us. That’s why the idea of using the Cash Out function comes in handy, because it allows us to change our mind. But what if we could recoup our losses some other way?

What’s It All About?

BetBright In Play CashbackBetBright’s In-Play Cashback offer is the company’s way of giving something back to their customers. It does exactly what it says on the tin, refunding a quarter of your losses back into your account the day after all bets have been settled. It happens the day after because it’s a quarter of your losses from the entire day, rather than from individual bets.

As the title hints at, the offer is for bets placed In-Play, so ante-post bets won’t qualify for this offer. Given that you’ll be getting money back on your losses, it goes without saying that you can’t Cash Out any bets and have this promotion apply to them. You also won’t get any money back if you place your bet with a free bet token that you might have won from another offer run by BetBright.

What Are the Restrictions?

All bookmaker offers have some restrictions applied to them and this one is no exception. For starters, you need to place at least three bets that meet the qualifying requirements in order for this promotion to kick in. But what are the qualifying requirements?

  • All three qualifying bets must have minimum odds of 1/5 (1.2)
  • Multiples will count, as long as they’ve got combined odds of 1/5 (1.2) or higher
  • Minimum refund amount will be £10
  • Maximum refund amount will be £100

For the purpose of clarification, net daily losses are when you lose more money than you win over the course of a day. That means that this offer will only kick in of you’ve lost more money on In-Play bets than you’ve won. If you win £50 through In-Play bets but lose £200, you’ll have a net loss amount of £150 when it comes to In-Play bets. 25% of that is £37.50, so that’s what you’d get refunded as cash.

What Are the Time Limits?

This offer is for net losses over the course of a day, so it goes without saying that you need to place all of your bets, including the three qualifying ones, within the same period. This means that your In-Play wagers have to be placed and settled between 00:00 and 23:59.

As long as you’ve reached all of the requirements and placed the bets within the allotted time period, you’ll get your refund credited to your account in cash by 11am the following day. You can then either withdraw that money or use it for more bets, it’s entirely up to you.

Is This Offer Worth Using?

As is so often the case, the usefulness or otherwise of this promotion will depend entirely on your own personal betting habits. If you love an In-Play flutter or would like to give them a try then it’s absolutely worth looking to BetBright when you come to place your wagers.

On the other hand, plenty of people are wary of In-Play betting and, for you, the temptation might be there to avoid this offer. What I would say is that it essentially mitigates your potential losses, which means that anyone who doesn’t particularly like betting In-Play might be wise to do so courtesy of this offer so it doesn’t hurt as much if you make the wrong calls.
