William Hill Blown Away By Astronomical ‘Cash In My Bet’ Numbers!
Since ‘Cash In My Bet' was launched by William Hill mid way through December, William Hill have paid out nearly £2m to punters who have cashed in their bets early. Over 26,000 people in just three weeks have decided to cash out their winnings early before the final whistle sounds. As things stand, punters have the upper hand over William Hill with the feature being utilised to the fullest of its potential over the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd of December.
With odds on favourites Tottenham and Manchester United both failing to win over the course of the weekend, punters decided to utilise ‘Cash In My Bet' to recoup nearly £380,000 (£75,000 of which would have been losers without cash in my bet).
"Over 26,000 people have cashed in nearly £2m over just three weeks and the numbers do not lie," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "The punters love this product and it is only going to become more popular."

How to Cash in your bet!
Cashing in your bet could not be easier.
Firstly place your football bet. This can be a single or a multi. As soon as you place your football bet you'll have a 'cash in' value attached to it.
Then whenever you think about cashing in go to the 'Open Bets' tab on the betslip and details of your bet(s) will appear. As each leg of your accumulator wins, or even if your team goes ahead in the game, your cash in value will increase. The more legs of the accumulator and the later in the game you leave it the higher the value. If the 'Cash In' facility is active on the market/game you bet on then you will see a green icon that says 'Cash In' and a cash value next to it that shows your returns if you get out early.
Whenever you do choose to click the button you will be guaranteed the same returns no matter the ultimate outcome of the bet, plus the money will be delivered to your account immediately. One click and your bet has ended!
