How does the request a bet service work?Many online betting sites, and even high street bookmakers, are now starting to put a fair bit of control into the hands of punters with services that allow you to request odds for almost any outcome you can think of.
Eg. You can ask to give a price for "both team to score in a match, player X to score, player Y to be shown a card, team W to win most corners".
Generally, you will have to go and hit up Twitter to request a price. Each bookmaker is naturally running a different hashtag for their request a bet feature. Usually within minutes the team will get back to you and either directly message you the price, sending you a link to where you can place the bet. Bear in mind this may be time limited and limits for requested bets may not be as high as traditional markets.
Of course, there is no obligation for you to actually place the bet you requested. Therefore why not request odds for the same bet from multiple bookies and see who gives you the highest price?
Bookmakers offering Request a Bet featuresCoral Sportsbook has been one of the first online bookmakers to launch the request a bet feature for their punters. Its name is #YourCall and could be requeste via mobile or Twitter. It lets you pick a player, a stat and build a bet. #YourCall is only available on football at the moment, but it will be shortly requestable on all major sports.
