Turn On, Tune In and Cash Out

Get your money earlier, no strings a-cash-ed

by Aidan Elder | November 28, 2013

Ta-dah! Cash Out is here!

Yes it’s several months after it was available elsewhere, but it’s still several months ahead of the rest. And besides, you try to get the Paddy Power IT Department to focus on anything useful at a time when JJ Abrams takes over the Star Trek franchise, Iron Man hits the big screen and Sheldon manages to get a real-life girlfriend. It’s harder than asking Miley Cyrus to keep her clothes on.

You may be familiar with the Cash Out facility, but don’t worry if you’re not because it’s not exactly rocket surgery. If you’re beating the bookie with one of your bets, you’ve got the option of taking the money and running. Plus it’s available on both our desktop site and mobile too. Cha and indeed ching.

Despite the fact we have to use some jargon crap, it’s actually pretty straight-forward. We’d call it – to use the technical term – the dog’s bollocks. Here’s how Paddy Power Cash Out works…

  • You have a pre-match bet
  • The match kicks off, after a certain amount of time it’s clear your bet is going well
  • A ‘CASH OUT’ icon will appear to let you know you’ve got that option
  • You’ll be given the chance to cash out of your bet early for less cash than if you wait until the final whistle
  • Or you can wait until the end to get the full odds
    Woooo – drama!

Here’s what it looks like on screen.
When the Cash Out option is available to you, a handy ‘Cash Out available on this market!‘ message appears on the live betting for the match, as you can see below.


You’ll also be able to see just how much you’ll be cashing out for under the relevant market. In this case, the strong start by SK Sigma Olomouc Under 21s (easily our favourite of all the Czech under 21 club teams) has the game pretty much wrapped up, so we’re being offered €6.73 to cash out now rather than enduring the uncertainty of 35 odd minutes until full time for a return of €7.86.

On mobile, it’s a slightly different but no more complicated story. This time to check if you can cash out, you need to go to the Cash Out option on the menu on the left hand side of the page. Click in there and you’ll see a full list of the bets you have the option of cashing out on. If you like what you see, hit the Cash Out for [whatever the sum of money is] button and that’s it – job done.


Sadly in practice, the yellow arrows won’t appear because although they make life very simple, you can’t go around having yellow arrows appearing willy-nilly.

So, do you take what’s on offer now or do you hang on until the end for a potentially even greater reward?
Hmmm … tough call. It’s a bit like Deal or No Deal, only without the shit beards and all the naïve optimists who think the universe is apportioning karma via the medium of random red boxes.

At the moment it’s available on football matches, but we’re hoping to roll it out across a wide variety of sports in the next few months. It really depends how long it takes for the world to realise that every Iron Man is basically the same movie and The Big Bang Theory revolves around the same four jokes. Ha ha – Howard is pervy – this never gets old!

So that’s it. We’re a little behind the game, but that just means we’ve had more time to get it right. Why reinvent the wheel when you can just steal someone else’s wheel and add it to your collection of already pretty slick wheels and make it an even better wheel?

    Good news and will possibly encourage me to spend less time with 365 and more time with paddy, will it be available on multiples yet? And please make sure NFL is high on list of other sports to add a cash out button, cheers!

  6. Paul Mallon (pp blog editor) said on November 28, 2013 @ 11:06 pm

    Singles only for the moment yes, but we are aiming to support multiples in the not too distant future. Thanks

  8. AnnHutton said on November 29, 2013 @ 11:53 am

    You should do it for all sports including horse racing 5 folds like 3 win 2 left 2 run or cash out without risking last 2 and stuff. anyone agree?

    Sounds good, need it on the accys though!

  14. PK said on December 1, 2013 @ 1:14 pm

    AS mentioned at the start of this article cash out is something that is on offer with other leading bookmakers and it is available for accumulators with them also. I use PP quite a lot and overall enjoy the site but please don’t blow your trumpet over things like this when there are significantly better offerings elsewhere.

  23. Anonymous said on December 6, 2013 @ 1:30 pm

    will you allow fractional-cash-in like Colossus Bets, so I can take some profits out but also let some of it ride?

  24. Anonymous said on December 6, 2013 @ 4:04 pm

    why cant we bet equally divided accums on the horses

  25. Anomyous said on December 6, 2013 @ 7:06 pm

    average punter bets in accums on football and not singles so must start including accums or only a small percentage of punters will avail.

  26. Jelza said on December 7, 2013 @ 7:08 am

    Paddy your a bit behind compared to other bookmakers you need to lay on accumulated bets if your to get the business on these market Come on Paddy bring it on don’t fall behind the times

  28. Ronan said on December 8, 2013 @ 1:18 pm

    Can you cash out if you are losing?

  29. Paul Mallon said on December 9, 2013 @ 1:57 pm

    Yes you can, Ronan. Jump out early if you think your team will get a hiding! Paul

  30. Gus said on December 9, 2013 @ 4:31 pm

    Hi Paddy,
    This “cash-out” facility will be great. Surely, ye should be able to do this across the board, besides often having to lay off our bets. For example, I had placed an accumulator on football matches. I placed just a €5 bet, but with an accumulator of 10 matches, I stood to win €5k approx, with one match to play. I did lay off money, but had to get about €2200 and lodge with Paddy Power and then lay off to ensure I won some amount of money. The value on doing this was relativly good, but an awful lot of hassle and a lot of MATHS…..and we all love maths, dont we? If it cant be done, computerised, maybe a phone call could do it, that Paddy could offer a “cash out” on any particular bet. Thanks Paddy…………….. Look forward to the future……….

  31. steve said on December 9, 2013 @ 7:00 pm

    Great news paddy, will it be availible on btts coupons, them nightmare 94th minute goals!!!!!!

    Paul can you let us know re the Acc bets as per Jelza question December 7th

  35. Paul Mallon said on December 11, 2013 @ 7:27 pm

    Hey Savo, and Jelza – apols for missing your question earlier. Have a call in with the mobile team, and once they stop trying to beat their Candy Crush high score we’ll have an answer on that.

  39. andrew said on December 13, 2013 @ 10:16 pm

    If I had £20 on arsenal to win the league before the season started at 14-1, how much would you let me “cash out” for at this moment in time?

  40. mp said on December 14, 2013 @ 9:21 pm

    Dose it mean I get less money with cash-out than waiting to the end for full winning money?
    Sorry, I am not clear with that….?!

  41. mp said on December 14, 2013 @ 9:24 pm

    what if my team loses at the end after I have already cashed out?

  42. Anonymous said on December 14, 2013 @ 9:39 pm

    id say 40 cent andrew (if your lucky)

  43. Powell Josh said on December 15, 2013 @ 4:15 pm

    Afternoon MP.
    Basically you can cash out at any time of the game and whatever the result, the money you took is yours. You get less money for cashing out but it’s good to use if you think your team is struggling to hold on to a one goal lead, and you want to take a small bit of profit and run, rather than risking the wait for the full amount. Obviously the danger is you cash out and your team win anyway, which means you’ll probably have taken a smaller profit than if you’d let the bet run, but at least you’ll still be a few quid up. Hope this makes sense mate!
