Cash Out

You don't need us to tell you that live sporting action can often take dramatic, sometimes unpredictable, turns before reaching a conclusion.

So who are we to tell you that a bet can only be settled at the final whistle?

  • Or on day five of a Test?
  • Or at the end of the fourth quarter?
  • Or after the closing race on the card?
  • Or when match point has just been won?

Sports spread betting gives you the ability to react when you need it most - as the action unfolds. In fact, it might surprise you to know that Sporting Index are the pioneers of Cashing Out in-play. Nothing sweeter if you're locking in a profit - more sobering if you're cutting your losses - what's important is that you are always in control over your position at any time. No other kind of bet balances edge-of-your-seat excitement with this kind of flexibility.

Next time you have a spread bet, be sure to check out the value of your open position in-play. To stop a bet, simply click the Cash Out button on your bet slip. The button will be green if you stand to make a profit, red if you stand to make a loss or grey if you stand to break even. 

Football Cash Out

Cash Out lets you stop a sports spread bet as the action unfolds. Whether you are on bookings and the tackles start flying in or goals and both teams suddenly go on the defensive, spread betting gives you the ability to react, keeping you in control.

Sporting Index are the pioneers of Cashing Out in-play, allowing you to secure a profit or cap a loss at any time, on any one of up to 150 in-play markets.

As an example, take Leicester¿s 3-2 victory at West Brom in the 2015/16 Premier League season.

Before kick-off, total goals in the match were trading at 3-3.2. Let¿s say you sold at 3 for £50 a goal. With West Brom leading one-nil at half time, our total goals spread had dropped to 1.8-2 at which point you could Cash Out at 1 goal profit of £50 (difference between the level you sold at which is 3, and the level available to Cash Out at which is 2, multiplied by your £50 stake).*

Leicester of course turned the game around in the second half with three goals, plus there was a West Brom consolation goal late on. Letting the same bet run until the final whistle would have meant a loss of £100 (difference between the level you sold at which is 3, and the level it made up at which is 5, multiplied by your £50 stake).

*On the flip side, if you had originally bought goals at 3.2 for the same stake and Cashed Out at the same time it would have meant a loss of £60 (difference between the level you bought at which is 3.2, and the level available to Cash Out at which is 2, multiplied by your £50 stake).

Next time you have a spread bet, be sure to check out the value of your open position in-play. To stop a bet, simply click the Cash Out button on your bet slip. The button will be green if you stand to make a profit, red if you stand to make a loss or grey if you stand to break even.

Rugby Cash Out

Cash Out lets you stop a sports spread bet as the action unfolds. Whether you are on shirt numbers and the backs are seeing plenty of quick ball or total points and the weather suddenly takes a turn for the worse, spread betting gives you the ability to react, keeping you in control.

Sporting Index are the pioneers of Cashing Out in-play, allowing you to secure a profit or cap a loss at any time, on any one of up to 26 in-play markets.

As an example, take Saracens 36-18 victory over Exeter in the Aviva Premiership.

Before kick-off, supremacy in the match was trading at 10-12 points in favour of Saracens. Let¿s say you sold at 10 for £10 a point. At half-time as the Chiefs took a surprise 13-7 lead, our supremacy spread had dropped to 3-5, at which point you could Cash Out at 5 for a profit of £50 (difference between the level you sold at which is 10, and the level available to Cash Out at which is 5, multiplied by your £10 stake).*

Saracens dominated after the break, scoring four tries to one. Letting the same bet run until the final whistle would have meant a loss of £80 (difference between the level you sold at which is 10, and the level it made up at which is 18, multiplied by your £10 stake).

*On the flip side, if you had originally bought supremacy at 12 for the same stake and Cashed Out at the same time it would have meant a loss of £90 (difference between the level you bought at which is 12, and the level available to Cash Out at which is 3, multiplied by your £10 stake).

Tennis Cash Out

Cash Out lets you stop a sports spread bet as the action unfolds. Whether you are on total points and the match looks to be going the distance or supremacy and suddenly your player isn't moving quite as freely around the court, spread betting gives you the ability to react, keeping you in control.

Sporting Index are the pioneers of Cashing Out in-play, allowing you to secure a profit or cap a loss at any time, on any one of up to 25 in-play markets.

As an example, take Heather Watson¿s 5-7, 6-2, 6-2 win over Nicole Gibbs at the French Open.

Before the match started, total points played were trading at 146-150. Let¿s say you bought at 150 for £2 a point. Gibbs won the first set 7-5 and when Watson took the second 6-2 the quote jumped to 213-218, at which point you could Cash Out at 213 for a profit of £126 (difference between the level you bought at which is 150, and the level available to Cash Out at which is 213, multiplied by your £2 stake).*

Watson comprehensively won the third set and the final points make up was 199. Letting the same bet run until the end of the match would have meant a smaller profit of £98 (difference between the level you bought at which is 150, and the level it made up at which is 202, multiplied by your £2 stake).

*On the flip side, if you had originally sold total points played at 146 for the same stake and Cashed Out at the same time it would have meant a loss of £150 (difference between the level you sold at which is 146, and the level available to Cash Out at which is 221, multiplied by your £2 stake).

Cricket Cash Out

Cash Out lets you stop a sports spread bet as the action unfolds. Whether you are on a team's total runs and the two openers reach 150 without loss at lunch or the fall of the next wicket and the new ball is due to be taken, spread betting gives you the ability to react, keeping you in control.

Sporting Index are the pioneers of Cashing Out in-play, allowing you to secure a profit or cap a loss at any time, on any one of up to 12 in-play markets.

As an example, take England¿s first innings runs in the Headingley Test match against Sri Lanka.

Before England faced their first ball, their first innings runs were trading at 305-320. Let¿s say you sold at 305 for £2 a run. After England were reduced to 83-5 with the bat, our new runs spread was 190-194 at which point you could Cash Out at 194 for a profit of £222 (difference between the level you sold at which is 305, and the level available to Cash Out at which is 194, multiplied by your £2 stake).*

After lunch England fought back, and scraped their way to 298. Letting the same bet run until the end of the innings would have meant a smaller profit of just £14 (difference between the level you bought at which is 305, and the level it made up at which is 298, multiplied by your £2 stake).

*On the flip side, if you had originally bought runs at 320 for the same stake and Cashed Out at the same time it would have meant a loss of £260 (difference between the level you bought at which is 320, and the level available to Cash Out at which is 190, multiplied by your £2 stake).

Horse Racing Cash Out

Cash Out lets you stop a sports spread bet as the action unfolds. Whether you are on a jockey's performance and he rides a double in the first two races on the card or distances and the rain suddenly starts to fall, spread betting gives you the ability to react, keeping you in control.

Sporting Index are the pioneers of Cashing Out in-play, allowing you to secure a profit or cap a loss between races, on any one of up to 20 meeting-long markets.

As an example, take starting prices for Ladies Day at Epsom.

Before they set off for the Race 1, starting prices over the seven races were trading at 60-63. Let¿s say you bought at 63 for £10 a point. Prior to the last race, starting prices were 59 so far and the spread had risen to a high of 71-74 at which point you could Cash Out at 71 for a profit of £80 (difference between the level you bought at which is 63, and the level available to Cash Out at which is 71, multiplied by your £10 stake).*

In a wide open handicap, the final race was won by a fancied 6/1 shot. Letting the same bet run until after the last would have meant a profit of just £20 (difference between the level you bought at which is 63, and the level it made up at which is 65, multiplied by your £10 stake).

*On the flip side, if you had originally sold starting prices at 60 for the same stake and Cashed Out at the same time it would have meant a loss of £140 (difference between the level you sold at which is 60, and the level available to Cash Out at which is 74, multiplied by your £10 stake).

Sporting Index are the pioneers of Cashing Out in-play, allowing you to secure a profit or cap a loss at any time, on any one of up to 60 in-play markets.

Before kick-off, supremacy in the match was trading at 6-8 points in favour of Carolina. Let¿s say you bought at 8 for £10 a point. Midway through the third quarter, Carolina were 35-7 up and our supremacy spread now favoured the Panthers by 28-30 at which point you could Cash Out at 28 for a profit of £200 (difference between the level you bought at which is 8 in favour of Carolina, and the level available to Cash Out at which is 28, multiplied by your £10 stake).*

After a rousing fourth quarter scoring 21 points, New York clawed the match back but eventually narrowly lost 38-35. Letting the same bet run until its conclusion would have meant a loss of £50 (difference between the level you bought at which is 8, and the level it made up at which is 3, multiplied by your £10 stake).

*On the flip side, if you had originally sold supremacy at 6 for the same stake and Cashed Out at the same time it would have meant a loss of £360 (difference between the level you sold at which is 6, and the level available to Cash Out at which is 30 in favour of Carolina, multiplied by your £10 stake).
