Cash Out betting functionality lets the user of a betting website take profit early if their bet is coming in, or get some of their stake back if their bet is going against them—all before the event is over. Cash Out offers are optionally made by the website in real time on some of the current bets held by the user and are optionally taken by the user by clicking on a button on the webpage to “Cash out”.

It was later adopted by online sports books and suppliers of betting software. It is regularly offered on a wide range of sports, including American football, tennis, horse racing, basketball, and most other markets. You can Cash Out of bets pre-play, in-play, and between legs, prior to the outcome of the event.

Commonly used in the UK, as the name suggests, the all-up bet allows a bettor to roll the original stake and winnings from one bet ‘all-up’ into the next bet.
