The Cash Out value then changes in accordance with what’s happening in the tennis match. If you back Rafael Nadal to beat Djokovic in the French Open final, you might place £50 at odds of 2/1. That would mean a potential return of £150 if the Spaniard wins the match.
However, if Nadal takes a one-set lead, then his In-Play odds might change to 10/11 and you would get a potential Cash Out value of £100. That would mean you could take a profit of £50 without waiting for the match to reach a climax or alternatively stay in the bet.
Cash Out is also a welcome service when your bet isn’t working out and you are facing a losing scenario. Rather than lose 100% of your stake, there’s often a chance to cut the money and run with 50% of your initial outlay which is better than a slap in the face.
