- What is it?
Cashback is a very common type of promotion in sports betting. In this type of promo, the bettor places a “risk free” bet. If the total or partial stake is lost it will be returned. The return of the stake is made in the form of a Freebet (not in real money), subject to the terms and conditions of the website.
- Can I bet in any game?
Cashback can be used for any game available on the website during the period in which the promotion is active (keep in mind this situation can vary). Normally, it is intended for a specific sport, a championship / competition or it can be intended for just one or a few games. This information will always be explained in detail in our “Promotions” page.
- Can I take advantage of several Cashback during the promotion period?
Usually, no. You must select a game from those available and activate the cashback for that specific game. In case you win the bet, you will receive the winnings in real money and you will not be able to activate the Cashback for another bet once you have activated it for that game. However this can vary from promotion to promotion, and if it is explained in the conditions of the promo that it can be activated on several bets, it means that for that specific promotion the Cashback can be used more than once.
- If I place a multiple bet can I activate the Cashback?
Currently, the Cashback offered by ESC Online includes only single bets. If you place a multiple bet, you will not be able to activate the Cashback in your bet slip.
- What are the conditions for accessing the Cashback?
Depending on the promotion, you can have a few requirements to join the Cashback:
Minimum Odd: Normally, a minimum odd is established for the bet, which you can consult on the promotions page. You should take into account that the odd presented on the website will not be equal to the final odd of the bet (opti-odds system). The odd that is counted for is the final odd of the bet, so you must always confirm that the odd in the bet slip is equal to or higher than the minimum odd to participate in the promotion.
Pre-match or Live: Cashbacks can be used for bets placed only in prematch, live, or both, so consulting the conditions of the promotion is always essential.
Minimum and maximum value: Promotions always have a minimum value to join them and a maximum value. If you place a bet with less than the minimum amount to participate, you will not be able to take advantage of the cashback on that bet, but you can place another bet in order to participate. The maximum amount corresponds to the maximum bonus amount that will be returned. You can place bets with a value higher than the maximum value of the promotion, and these will be valid, taking into account that if the bet is lost, only the maximum amount indicated for Cashback will be returned.
Deposit: In some Cashbacks, a deposit may be mandatory. The deposit amount will be indicated in the promo conditions.
Bet Markets: Cashback may only be available for certain markets. For example: anytime goalscorer. In this case, you must bet on the player that you think will score a goal, and if the bet is lost you will get the Cashback.
- Can I access the Cashback with bonus money?
Like any other promotion, Cashback is no exception. To participate you must place the bet with real money or else, you won't be able to receive the promo. That is, you have to make sure that you have enough real balance in your account to meet the promotion minimums. If the bet you place exceeds your actual balance by placing a bet with real and bonus money, that bet will not qualify for the promotion.
Whenever the bet is valid to participate, you must select the cashback in the bet slip before registering. If the option to accept Cashback does not appear, it is because some of the requirements are not being met.
- Types of Cashback – Examples
100% Cashback: the total stake will be refunded in case of loss, within the values established in the promotion conditions.
Partial Cashback: the stake is not fully refunded, but a percentage of it. For example, in a 50% Cashback, if you bet € 10 and lose, you will receive a € 5 Freebet.
Cashback scenario: It’s a cashback in which a given scenario will have to occur/happen in the game in which you bet for the stake to be returned. Conditions may vary from promotion to promotion. For example, the game has to end 0-0. In this case, you must place a bet in the game, and only if the bet is lost and the game ends 0-0 will you receive the Cashback.
