What are Request A Bets?

We’ve all been there; you think of a bet but cannot find any bookmaker offering odds. So what do you do? Request a bet, of course.

Request A Bet puts the punter in control, where your imagination can take you anywhere. The best thing? It’s as self-explanatory and simple as the title suggests. If a punter has a hunch that something will happen after reading a statistic or spotting an omen, they can request the bet from bookmaker. Essentially, you are constructing your own accumulator within a single sporting event.

What markets can you include in a football Request A Bet?

There is the ultimate pick’n’mix of football betting with multiple markets available for the punter to assemble a Request A Bet. Corners, cards, goals, goal scorer, result, score, clean sheets and more can be included in the punter’s Request A Bet – the options are essentially limitless.

Often bookmakers will limit the number of selections, but the bet can be as diverse as the punter wishes. As Willy Wonka insisted, let your imagination run away...

Example of a Request A Bet

The popularity of Request A Bets have increased drastically in recent years. While the concept of requesting a bet has been around since the very beginning of gambling, the age of social media has taken it to another level.

Why would you request a bet?

The answer is simple. It’s a different way to experience sports betting, it allows the punters to be creative and the odds can be extremely appealing.

An example of a Request A Bet:

  • Manchester City to win vs Norwich City
  • Both teams to score
  • Raheem Sterling to score first
  • Manchester City to score +3.5 goals

So, if Manchester City win, both teams find the net, Raheem Sterling scores first and Manchester City score four or more goals, the punter will win.

Here’s another example of a Request A Bet:

  • Sheffield Wednesday to win
  • Over 2 cards issued
  • Over 2.5 goals scored
  • Over 9 corners taken

So, if Wednesday get the victory, there are only two yellow or red cards, more than 2.5 goals scored and more than nine corers, the punter will pick up his winnings.

There are several ways a punter can request a bet using Twitter or a bookmakers’ app. Here’s how they can be picked:

  1. Social media: Bookmakers employ several people to work across social media. One of the reasons is to respond to Request A Bets, mainly through Twitter. The punter simply tweets a combination of outcomes to the bookmaker’s social media account, as well as including a special hashtag. Details on specific bookmakers are below.
  2. Apps: Bookmakers like Sky Bet offer the chance for a punter to request a bet via an app. This can sometimes be a more efficient and effective way of requesting a bet as odds can often be offered immediately to the punter. If not, the bookmaker will assess the bet before offering a price.

How to request a bet on Sky Bet:

There are three methods to request a bet on Sky Bet:

  1. On the Sky Bet app, the bookmaker lists hundreds of possible requests to browse from and take advantage of a fellow punter’s clever thinking.
  2. Also, on the app, Sky Bet allow the punter to construct a bet using ‘Bet Builder’. Here you will be able to select from four markets to select your request a bet.
  3. Tweet Sky Bet (@RequestABet) and use the hashtag #RequestABet on Twitter and include your request or use the #RequestABet function of the Sky Bet website.

How to request a bet on William Hill:

William Hill give the punter two ways to request a bet. If the offerings on the website/app do not take to your fancy, you can make a request two ways:

  1. At times, a punter could be thinking a few steps ahead. Maybe they have an inkling on how a particular match will play out. If so, they can tweet #YourOdds to William Hill (@WilliamHill) on Twitter with the request and they will get back to you with the odds. Just make sure you use the hashtag #YourOdds.
  2. William Hill also offers a ‘Multi-Match’ facility on their website and app, which allows the punter to make a bet with the markets offered. The markets aren’t as comprehensive but allows the bettor to make an instantaneous ACCA.

How to request a bet on Ladbrokes:

Ladbrokes also make use of Twitter when providing punters an additional platform for their creativity in betting. If you have a hunch a player will score first, but the player’s team will lose both halves, then use the hashtag #GetAPrice to make the most of your intuition.

Tweet your bet request to Ladbrokes (@Ladbrokes) on Twitter and they will provide a unique link along with special odds on the bet. Follow the link and place your bet. Simple as can be.

However, to save time make sure you check the #GetAPrice tab on the Ladbrokes’ app or website for a previously placed Request A Bet.

How to request a bet on Coral:

Sometimes you just can’t find the bet you want to place, despite the bookmaker offering hundreds of bets on a specific match. Fear no more, Coral offer the chance for punters to request a bet to turn their notion into reality.

Using the hashtag #YourCall on Twitter, tweet your bet to Coral (@Coral) and they will get back to you with your unique odds. A link will also be provided, which will take you to the Coral website to place the bet.

Requesting a bet on Betfair:

On Betfair, a list of the recently placed bets which were requested are published. You can find this under the #OOT tab once logged into your account.

But sometimes it doesn’t cover it all, sometimes your bet is so niche that it doesn’t yet exist. No problem whatsoever, as punters can send Betfair a tweet using the hashtag #OddsOnThat on Twitter to request a bet.

Betfair will get back with the odds shortly for the bet shortly after, as well as a link to follow where the bet can be placed.

If Twitter isn’t really your thing, then Betfair offer a ‘Same Game Multi’ function on its website and app. Dozens of selections are offered, and the bet can be placed as normal using the bet slip multiple.

How to Request a bet on Paddy Power

Like Betfair, Paddy Power offer two ways for the punters to throw their hats in the ring by requesting a bet.

It’s simple and easy to request a bet with Paddy Power using Twitter. Once the punter has created the bet, they can use the hashtag #WhatOddsPaddy and tweet @AskPaddyPower with the request. Paddy Power will then get back to the bettor with the odds and link to allow the bet to be placed.

Alternatively, the bettor can use the ‘Same Game Multi’ feature on Paddy Power’s website or app to build their bet. The bet can then be placed as normal.

Request a bet boosts and specials

Great minds think alike. Sometimes it can be quicker and more effective to check the bookmakers’ apps to see whether the bet has previously been placed. But also, the bookmaker can also be one step ahead of you by already offering pre-made Request A Bets on their website.

These tends to be classed as ‘Bet Boosts’ as they offer more attractive odds than if the punter was to create the bet themselves. These pre-made bets are increasingly popular on matches and can be seen prior to kick-off.

Sometimes they can be as simple as two specific players to score during the match or they can include up to six different markets.
