Hi

I'm doing the first offer on Coral with Profit accumulator.
I have bet on a football match for a team to win in Coral & released £20 free bet.
In the Betfair account I have layed this bet.
With the £20 free bet I have placed a bet on a horse in Coral. However I noticed after that I have placed the bet as win or each way.
before I noticed this I made the corresponding lay bet with Betfair and notice that it is unmatched.
Have I stuffed this up or is there a way to sort it out?

Hi @Rooster1st

how long is it until the event takes place?

9 times out of 10 it will fully match before it happens

The odds have changed from 4.4 to 5.1 since I layed the bet. How long would you recommend to wait before the race before doing something if it remains unmatched?

I'd give it until 2:30pm and if maybe it hasn't matched then I would follow the instructions in that blog post to fix it ;)

@Rooster1st

It's nearly time for the event, has the lay bet managed to match?

Yes but I ended up having to cancel & rebet with odds of 8.6 which is not really what I wanted. Early days though. Onwards and upwards :)

Aye, onwards and upwards.

Now you've read that blog post you know to always make sure there is enough money in the exchange market you are betting on before you place your lay bet ;)
