Sportsbet.io Pays Out Largest Win to Date via New Cashout FeaturePublished May 29, 2018 by Ivan P
Getting out just in time and using the cashout option on his tennis 10-fold, the lucky punter banked 10 BTC, which translates to around €65,000.
One lucky punter had a common sense to get out just in time when he decided to cash out his 10-leg tennis multiple at Sportsbet.io, resulting in a 10 Bitcoin (€65,000) win, the biggest payout resulting from the new cashout feature the bookie has recently introduced.
Right Call at the Right Time
The latest winner was on a great roll after nine of the ten wagers on his tennis multiple came in. He was just one match away from winning the whole thing but clearly decided that Wawrinka, the final pairing on his slip, wasn't the sure bet.
Instead of holding on and hoping for the best, the lucky punter, who later explained he created the 10-fold for fun, not really expecting to win, decided to get out of dodge early and cashed out for 10 BTC, which is around €65,000 translated to the fiat currency. As luck would have it, it turned out to be a great decision, as Wawrinka went on to lose his match to Fucsovics 6-4 6-0.
A Punter-friendly Feature
The cashout feature has become fairly standard across traditional online bookies, but Sportsbet.io has become the first Bitcoin bookmaker to also make it available for their customers. In essence, this feature lets punters cash out their multiples early, if they don't feel like waiting for their final picks to finish for whatever reason.
The bookie has decided to introduce this option earlier this year and the lucky winner is, as it stands, the biggest beneficiary of the feature so far. The Sportsbet.io management expects more big wins resulting from the cashout feature, which gives punters much more flexibility and maneuvering space.
Sportsbet.io has announced many more interesting features that should become available to bettors in the near future as a part of their World Cup 2018 'Your Road to Glory' offering.
