What does Cautious, Risky, YOLO mean?

We categorise all bets into 3 risk profiles based on the odds. We do the same for users based on the average odds of their bets.

Cautious is low risk. Anything up to and including 5/1. This is for the type of people who get travel insurance for a day trip to the Isle of Wight.

Risky is used for bets and tipsters who are a little more punchy. People who push the boat out with bets between 6/1 and 25/1. The type of guys who used to play knock down ginger when they were kids. They like the risk and the buzz that comes with it.

YOLO on the other hand is a different kettle of fish. 25/1+. The go-getters. The guys who back risk it all in the hope of reaping bigger rewards

How does the Bonus Cash section work?

When somebody signs up and deposits with one of our bookmaker partners via your unique referral link we will pay you £5. If they sign up and deposit with all 4 of our partners that’s £20 in your sky rocket (pocket).

Is there a limit to how much referral bonus money I can earn?

There is no limit this so you can sign up as many friends as you like. If you’ve got enough friends you could make this a full time job. Get sharing.

How do I find my referral link?

You can either find this link by clicking on the ‘Free Money’ button on the feed page or by clicking ‘share’ on a bet. Your referral link is attached to every tip that you share so if you want your pockets to get proper cakey then start sharing those tips. You can share on Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, Email or Whatsapp.

How do I change fractions to decimals?

Go into your settings and scroll down to account preferences. You should be able to change the ‘Odds format’ in there.

How do I change the currency?

Go into your settings, ‘Currency’ is lurking down in the account preferences section.

Can I place In-Play bets?

No sorry, we haven’t got in-play betting on our site yet but we will do soon. For now it’s all pre-match.

For some reason I can’t place a bet.

Double check the bookmaker that you are trying to bet with and make sure that you have connected your accounts.

Make sure your username and password are correct. That’s always a school boy error that one.

Check that the particular game hasn’t finished already. (This is more common than you’d think!).

If you can see a message which says there’s not enough money in your ‘tin tank’ then you will need to deposit some money into your sportsbook account for that particular bookmaker.

If it still doesn't work then get us on the blower - support@wantmybet.com
