How can I request my own bet from bookmakers?

Get creative with your own bets!

Bookmaker News

Bookmakers have started to put a fair bit of control into the hands of punters thanks to online betting opportunities where you can compose your own bet. No longer do punters just have to go and settle for what is on offer in a sportsbook with a bookmaker.

The Request A Bet phenomenon has grown exponentially and you are able to find many versions of it out there.  Sky Bet were one of the pioneers of this and continue to be a popular destination for this exciting form of betting.

Think up a bet and get it priced!

Now, punters are able to go and create a bet of their own liking by requesting a bet. Basically a punter selects options and asks the bookie to price it up. It is nice to be able to go and call the shots if you think you can strike it rich.

This increasingly popular new feature of being able to request a bet is allowing punters to get as creative as they like for their online betting. The ability to create a bet is largely focused on football matches and from stats involved in them such as the number of corners, both teams to score and how many assists a named player in a match will make. You can throw things like this together, and as many as you want, into a single bet.

The Twitter Trend

The one thing that all of the different request a bet features across different bookmakers have in common is that you can go and hit up Twitter to request a price. Each bookmaker is naturally running a different hashtag for their request a bet feature so all that you would do is look for the specific hashtag and which handle to Tweet it to and just send it off. Generally what happens is that the bookmaker will then reply to your Tweet along with a link where you can go directly and place the bet.

Back Bets Created By Others

What you will notice at bookmakers, such as at William Hill there are even dedicated sections for the special markets that punters have created already. So if you are lacking the time to go and create one of your own then you browse through other bets that have already been requested by and matched for punters and just strike a bet as you would on a regular sports betting market and make the most of those!
