Does Betway count extra-time?

What happens in the event that you have placed a bet on Betway, only for a game to move into extra-time and is extra-time still considered by Betway?


Sporting games are a said to bring people together. People can unite over their support of the same teams, as well as to enjoy watching their teams compete as a way of building competition and excitement over a sport that they like. Whatever it may be, sport excites its supporters.

Another way that people are enjoying the thrill of supporting their respective sporting teams and heroes is through sports betting. People in South Africa will pay money to bet on what they think the outcome of the sports they follow will be, and the outcomes of matches and sporting races.

Betway and extra time

Betway is a platform that has been introduced in South Africa for people to be able to bet on a variety of sports, in the hopes that they win for betting that the right team will win on a specific day or that their favourite player will win and by how much. Betway is an online sports betting platform that is active around certain parts of the world, including South Africa. When it comes to sports such as soccer, betters might be wondering what happens in the event of a game going into extra-time.

Does Betway count extra-time?

The world of sport will be very unpredictable at times and some bets can be lost. When it comes to the game of soccer in South Africa, there are instances when a match will not entirely end at 90 minutes, because it is likely that the match has ended in a draw or that a team has scored in the last minutes making the game an equalizer. At the end of the day, there has to be a winner, and so a game will go into extra-time or a penalty shoot-out.

What would then happen for people who had betted and not anticipated that extra scores could happen in extra-time and penalties? Unfortunately, the Betway platform does not take into consideration any extra-time or penalties added. It only looks to the time a game is meant to last and nothing beyond the 90-minute mark.

What sports does Betway offer betting on?

Because Betway is a global betting platform, it has a very diverse range of sporting for people to bet on and this is sports from all over the world not just South African sports.
