Early Payouts FootballThere’s nothing worse than the team you backed losing from a strong winning position to ruin your bet, but it doesn’t always have to be like that. Move your action to one of the early payout bookies listed below and that heartbreak will be no more!

Early payout offers on football were first to be introduced at online betting sites but have proved so popular that other sports are starting to enter the fray as well.

On this page we’ll show you a list of bookmakers with early payouts and how the early payout offers work.

Bookmakers With Early Payouts On Football

The following bookmakers are offering early payouts on football bets, for all other sports scroll down the page:

Editors Note:

Bet365’s early payout offer on football is called ‘2 Goals Ahead’. As that name suggests, the offer relates to games that you’ve bet on where your selection goes two goals ahead. The offer from Bet365 applies to pre-match, full-time result bets on the following competitions:

  • English Premier League
  • English Championship
  • English League One
  • English League Two
  • English FA Cup
  • English EFL Cup
  • Spanish Primera Liga
  • Italian Serie A
  • German Bundesliga
  • French Ligue 1
  • UEFA Champions League
  • UEFA Europa League
  • UEFA Conference League
  • World Cup 2022

*Offer applies to over 80 competitions in total for a full list visit this page.

The offer can help you collect your winnings early on either single or multiple bets. For qualifying single bets, you receive your winnings as soon as your selection goes into a two goal lead. Your bet gets paid out in full and it doesn’t matter what happens in the rest of the match. Even if your chosen team gets pegged back to draw or lose, you still keep your winnings.

In the case of doubles, trebles, or accas, the offer works in a similar way. Any selection in your bet that goes two goals up, is immediately marked as a winning leg. That doesn’t change, whatever happens in the rest of the match.

Bet365 also have a Bet £10 get £30 free bets offer if you’re new to the site.

Bet365 Review
Best betting site for early payouts!
Get your single bets paid out if the team you back goes 2 goals ahead – for multiple bets the selection will be marked as a winner with bet365. Applies to pre-match single and multiple bets on the standard Full Time Result market for applicable competitions. Only available to new and eligible customers. Bet restrictions and T&Cs apply.

Editors Note:

Paddy Power are the other major bookie to run an early payout offer on football. Their version of the promo is called simple ‘2 UP’. The 2 Up offer also relates to pre-match, win-draw-win markets, but only for the following matches:

  • Premier League
  • UEFA Champions League
  • UEFA Europa League
  • English Championship
  • English League 1
  • English League 2
  • Serie A
  • La Liga
  • Bundesliga
  • Ligue 1
  • Scottish Premiership

Just like Bet365’s offer, 2 Up pays out qualifying bets in full if a chosen team goes two goals up at any stage of a game. It doesn’t matter what happens in the rest of the match. Your bet gets paid out in full and you don’t lose any of your winnings, even if your selection goes on to draw or lose.

Unlike the Bet365 2 Goals Ahead promo, though, Paddy Power’s offer doesn’t apply to accas. That – and the smaller range of matches the promo applies to – is the main reason the Irish bookie is second on our list. They do at least run an early payout offer on football, though, unlike every other major bookmaker.

Early Payouts On Accumulators

Early payouts on accumulators are currently only offered by Bet365 but you can take advantage of the offer on football, basketball, baseball, NFL, and Ice Hockey. Here’s how the offer works:

How Do Early Payouts on Acca’s work?

While it is easy to understand that if you make a single bet and your team qualifies for the early payout promotion, you will receive your cash back as a winner, what happens when your selection is just one of several as part of an accumulator?

Well, the good news here is that any match you select as part of your accumulator that qualifies for the early payout offer, be that for baseball, American football, ice hockey, football or whatever, will be marked as a winner.

However, to win the bet, you still need your other selections on your accumulator bet to win in order for your bet to be a success.

Exaple Accumulator With Early Payouts

Let’s use two examples to show you how early payouts work with accumulators, one for a winning acca bet, and one for a losing acca bet.

For both the examples below, we are going to use the soccer 2 Goals Ahead early payout offer, but the principle is the same for any early payout acca on any of the other sports that have the offer with bet365.

Here’s the bet…

  • Leeds v Bournemouth – Leeds United to win – 8/11
  • Nottingham Forest v Brentford – Nottingham Forest to win – 7/4
  • Chelsea v Arsenal – Arsenal to win – 17/10
  • Southampton v Newcastle – Newcastle to win – 10/11
  • Tottenham v Liverpool – Tottenham to win – 21/10

At the odds shown above, this five-fold accumulator has total odds of 74.9/1, and let’s say you have placed a £10 bet on this accumulator.

Winning Exmaple:

For our winning example, we are going to say that the five matches we selected above for our fivefold accumulator finished as follows (and for clarity, I have shown how the order in which the goals in each game were scored and the team we backed to win is shown in italics).

  • Leeds United 2-0 Bournemouth – (15 mins – 1-0, 67 mins – 2-0) – Win
  • Nottingham Forest 2-3 Brentford – (3 mins – 1-0, 22 Mins – 2-0, 47 Mins 2-1, 59 Mins 2-2, 88 Mins – 2-3) – Win
  • Chelsea 1-2 Arsenal – (61 Mins – 0-1, 73 Mins – 1-1, 83 Mins – 1-2) Win
  • Southampton 2-2 Newcastle – (19 mins – 0-1, 67 Mins – 0-2, 68 Mins – 1-2, 90 mins 2-2) – Win
  • Tottenham 1-0 Liverpool – (61 mins – 1-0) – Win

Here you can see how the early payout offer has worked in the favour for your bet. While the Leeds, Arsenal and Tottenham results were all winners without needing early payouts, the other two matches were only winners because of it.

As you can see, we backed Nottingham Forest to beat Brentford, but they lost 3-2. However during that game, Forest went 2-0 up after 22 minutes, which means after 22 minutes of that game, this selection was marked as a winner.

Similarly in the 2-2 draw between Southampton and Newcastle, Newcastle went 2-0 in front on that game after 67 minutes, so this selection was marked as a winner from that point.

Leeds also ensured a win for the punter in the 67th minute for this selection when they scored their second goal to go 2-0 up in the first game.

We have highlighted the moment the offer kicked in in each of those games in bold – at this point, your bet was confirmed as a winner, regardless of the end result.

The fact that Nottingham Forest v Brentford and Southampton v Newcastle games then went on to see a final result not matching our initial selections now doesn’t matter. That’s because the team we selected went 2-0 up, the Early Payout offer means that these selections are marked as winners.

Losing Example:

In this example, we are going to use the exact same bet and the same set of results, the only difference being the order in which the goals are scored in the games we’ve selected for our acca.

  • Leeds United 2-0 Bournemouth – (15 mins – 1-0, 67 mins – 2-0) – Win
  • Nottingham Forest 2-3 Brentford – (3 mins – 1-0, 22 Mins – 1-1, 47 Mins 2-1, 59 Mins 2-2, 88 Mins – 2-3) – Lose
  • Chelsea 1-2 Arsenal – (61 Mins – 0-1, 73 Mins – 1-1, 83 Mins – 1-2) Win
  • Southampton 2-2 Newcastle – (19 mins – 1-0, 67 Mins – 1-1, 68 Mins – 1-2, 90 mins 2-2) – Lose
  • Tottenham 1-0 Liverpool – (61 mins – 1-0) – Win

For clarity we have highlighted in bold the changes in the goal order in the two games that means this accumulator bet is now a loser.

As you can see in the Nottingham Forest v Brentford game, instead of going 2-0 up and then being pegged back, Forest went 1-0 up but Brentford equalised, Forest then went 2-1 up only for Brentford to equalise again before the Bees scored the winner.

In the Southampton game, it was the Saints who went 1-0 up this time before Newcastle made it 1-1 and then 2-1 in their favour, before the Saints equalised late on.

In both these cases neither of our selections, Nottingham Forest or Newcastle, went 2-0 up in the game and hence the Early Payout offer did not save us this time as neither team won their game.

That makes both those selections losing ones and means that our accumulator bet was a loser.

What Are Early Payout Offers?

Early payout offers, as their name suggests, provide punters with their winnings earlier than usual. Both Bet365 and Paddy Power – the bookies that run the offers – pay out on eligible match result bets if a team goes two goals ahead in the game. A punter doesn’t have to wait and see if their selection will manage to see the game out.

How Do They Work?

Early Payouts On FootballSome betting promos can be a lot more complicated than they first appear. That’s not the case with early payout offers. They really do provide exactly what it says on the tin – to borrow a phrase from a well-known DIY brand.

You place a full-time result bet on an eligible match. If your selection then gets two goals ahead at any stage of the game, your bet gets paid out in full. There’s no alteration to the odds or to anything else. You get your full winnings before the match has even ended.

What happens in the rest of the match no longer matters to your bet. The wager has bee settled as a winner. You keep your full winnings, whether your selection actually goes on to win the match or not.

Early Payout Offers in Action: Football

If you’re still a little unsure how early payout offers work, let’s take a look at some practical examples. In each case, let’s assume you’ve placed an eligible £10 bet on Spurs to win at 5/1.

Example One:

Spurs start the match in fine style. They dominate the early stages and race into a 2-0 lead. As soon as they get two goals ahead, your bet gets paid out in full as a winner for £60. In the second half, Spurs fall apart. Their opponents get the upper hand, draw level at 2-2 and eventually win the match. It doesn’t matter at all to your bet, as you’ve already got your money.

Example Two:

Spurs start the match in fine style. They dominate the early stages and race into a 2-0 lead. As soon as they get two goals ahead, your bet gets paid out in full as a winner for £60. In the second half, Spurs kick on even more. They close out the game as comfortable winners. You’d have got your winnings anyway, but with the early payout offer you got them an hour earlier.

Do William Hill do early payouts?

Which bookies offer early payouts on accumulators?

At the moment, only Bet365 is offering early payouts on selections made in accumulator bets. What this means is that if you make a qualifying accumulator bet and one of your selections qualifies for the Early Payout promotion, then this selection will be marked down as a winner from the moment that the team qualifies for it. That selection will remain a winner, even if the final result of the game is not a win for your original selection choice.

Why are betting sites with early payouts so uncommon?

The reason why early payout promotions are so uncommon at betting sites is because it is a relatively big risk for a bookmaker to offer the bonus. If the bonus is triggered in a fixture, the bookmaker is committed to paying out, or labelling as a winner, all the selections of the team that triggered the bonus. However, if that team does not go on to win the game, then the bookmaker will not only have to pay out these selections as winners, but also all the other selections on the other team as a winner too.
