Are Coral and Ladbrokes the same company?
Technically, yes, Coral and Ladbrokes are both part of the same Ladbrokes Coral Group. However, that’s not really relevant anymore, because both brands are currently subsidiaries of a third company – Entain, formerly known as GVC Holdings. Entain is a huge player in the world of online gambling companies, and it owns several high-profile brands such as Bwin, Coral, and Ladbrokes. However, each of these brands operates separately, with their own website and (in the case of Ladbrokes) betting shop franchise. As such, all of these sites have separate online betting offers and different sets of strengths and weaknesses. In short, while the same capital is technically behind both Coral and Ladbrokes, customers should treat them as separate online sportsbooks. Think of them as separate products offered by the same company.
How do I use free bets at Coral?
To use free bets on the Coral sportsbook, log into your account. At the top of the screen, near where your current account balance is listed, you should see a window indicating that you have free bets available. If you have multiple types of bonus bets, they will all be listed along with their expiry date and cash value.
Alternatively, you can go to the Account menu and click on the “My Free Bets/Bonuses” tab. Click on the “Bet Now” button to use these bonuses.
Finally, you can also select the option directly from your bet slip. First of all, you will need to fill out a bet slip as usual by navigating the sportsbook and selecting bets. Once you’re done, look at the bet slip – just below where you would usually type in your stake, you should see a dropdown menu that will allow you to use free bets instead of cash.
Can I Cash Out at Coral?
Yes, the Coral online bookmaker offers a standard Cash Out feature. Note that the option may not be available for all bets, depending on the sport, event, and market the wager was made on. If Cash Out is available, you will see the Cash Out icon next to the bet.
To cash out, simply look at the relevant bet in the My Bets section of the sportsbook. Alternatively, you can cash out at any moment with the bet tracker feature. On the top of your bet slip, you will see a Cash Out tab, which will display all bets of your current bets which can take advantage of the function.
Cash Out essentially allows you to settle your bet before the sporting event is over. The payout for wagers settled in such a way depends on several factors. First of all, your initial stake and betting odds dictate the odds at which the cashout is paid. However, it mainly depends on the status of your bet – more precisely, how likely the given outcome is at the moment you’re cashing out. For example, if you’re betting on a football team to win and the team is in the lead, the cash out will be higher than your stake but lower than the full value of your bet. Conversely, if they’re losing, the cash out will be lower than the stake but higher than zero.
This gives you two main ways in which you can use Cash Out at Coral. The first is to take somewhat lower winnings and eliminate the risk of the match turning against you. On the other hand, you can cut your losses on a losing bet and take some cash back, forfeiting any chances of things turning in your favour.
Can I cancel a bet at Coral?
Generally speaking, no. Once a bet has been placed, it cannot be changed or cancelled. After you have confirmed the betting slip and your bets are placed, any choices are irreversible. As such, it is very important to make sure all details are exactly as you want them to be before clicking the confirm button.
There are some exceptions, however. First of all, non-runners within your bets are often cancelled and your stake returned to you. Secondly, some wagers allow you to use the Cash Out feature. Cashing out before the match starts generally pays back your stake in full.
What happens at Coral if an event has been postponed?
Generally speaking, single bets on pre-match bets have their stakes refunded. In the case of multiples or Accumulators, the bet will be treated as if that particular selection of the wager never existed in the first place. For instance, a treble becomes a double, a 5-fold accumulator becomes a 4-fold accumulator, and so on.
There are some exceptions to this rule, however. For instance, horse races that have been rescheduled to the same day will stand – though this applies to no other type of event.
Also, if an event is cancelled but your bet was already settled, the bet stands. For example, if you wager on a Half Time Result bet and the match is cancelled in the second half, the wager is still treated as settled.
What is the Booking Points bet at Coral?
This is a special football betting market that allows players to wager on the number of total red and yellow cards in the match. Yellow cards are worth 10 points and red cards are worth 25, so your goal is to predict whether the match will end with more points allocated to either team. Note that second yellow cards do not count, so a single player can ‘earn’ a maximum of 35 Booking Points.
How do I watch horse races at Coral?
To watch live streams of horse racing, your Coral account will have to meet some requirements. The UK and Irish horse races can be watched by any account that has a positive account balance or a bet placed in the last 24 hours. As far as all other events are concerned, you will need to place a wager of at least £1 on the race you want to watch.
Once you are eligible to watch, go to the ‘horse racing’ tab of the sportsbook. Find the race you want to watch and click on the large green “video stream” button. Click the play button in the video window below, and you’ll be able to enjoy the race. All streams open approximately two minutes before the race is due to go off.
How to cancel a withdrawal at Coral?
You can only cancel or modify withdrawal requests that are still pending, meaning if the withdrawal has not been approved and processed yet. To do so, go to the cashier section and click on ‘Deposits.’ If your request is still pending, you will be able to see it. You can cancel the whole withdrawal or just a part of it, in which case the amount you cancelled will be automatically returned to your account balance.
Where is Coral based?
The headquarters of the Coral Ladbrokes group are located in London, England.
Are there any withdrawal fees on Coral?
No, the Coral online bookmaker does not charge any fees for withdrawal.
How do I close my Coral account?
You have several options to delete your Coral account. Firstly, you can opt for self-exclusion, which includes both temporary time-outs or indefinite self-exclusion. You can initiate either on the self-exclusion page of your account. This option is intended for helping those with issues relating to problem gambling. You can specify any period between 1 day and 6 weeks. If you want to self-exclude for a longer period, select the Indefinite option – you will be able to request account re-activation after 6 months.
If you want to delete your account for any other reason, head over to the Service Closure section of your Account screen. This option can also be used indefinitely or for a pre-determined period. However, you can cancel temporary account Service closure at any time and reopen your account.
Is it safe to bet at Coral?
Yes, it is completely safe to place a bet at Coral bookmaker. This British sportsbook is licensed and regulated by two supervisory organs – the UK Gambling Commission and the jurisdiction of Gibraltar. Other than the two reputable licenses, Coral employs advanced SSL encryption protocols to safeguard financial transactions of its players.
Lastly, Coral bookmaker works closely with player protection programs to fight problem gambling. Everything considered, Coral makes sure its punters are secure while betting online.
What is Coral cash-out?
Coral offers its players a cashout option on selected events. If you would like to cash out at Coral bookmaker, you need to have a Coral betting coupon. For more detail, contact Coral customer support. Cora advises that its customers should not place bets with the sole intention of cashing out. However, there is a Coral cash-out option for early payouts.
What is Coral maximum payout?
At Coral bookmaker owned by GVC Holdings, you can win as much as £100,000 per bet.
How long does it take to withdraw money at Coral?
Thanks to its efficient banking services, Coral aims to pay out its clients within a 24-hour timeframe. Pending times vary depending on the chosen payment method. The fastest withdrawal options include e-wallets like Neteller and Skrill. Cards and bank wire transfers will take a couple of working days to process your withdrawal request.
Why does Coral limit accounts?
Every online bookmaker limits players to one account per household, address, phone number and credit card number. This is primarily to prevent problem gambling and maintain healthy gambling habits. Online betting is a form of adult entertainment above all, and Coral does what it can for it to stay so.
Why does Coral need my passport?
To register with Coral, you need to provide your national ID card and/or passport. This is to verify your identity and protect you from breaches. This way, Coral knows that it is you and not someone else using your data. Besides, when making a withdrawal request, in some cases you will be asked to provide your passport number again.
