Super Sub

What is Super Sub?

Don't let substitutes ruin all the fun! Super Sub keeps you in the game. Place a bet on a qualifying player-based outcome (see the 'What markets will Super Sub apply to?' question at the bottom of this article) and if that outcome is fulfilled by the player or the substitute that replaces the player you bet on, your bet will now be a winner.


Example: You bet on Erling Haaland to be fouled and he is substituted and replaced by Julian Alvarez without being fouled. If Julian Alvarez goes on to be fouled, your bet will now be a winner.


How does it work?

Simply add a qualifying player-based outcome (e.g. Mo Salah to have 1+ Shot on Target) to your bet and the Super Sub offer will apply. Super Sub markets will be easily identifiable with an icon on the market and in the betslip.


Does the introduction of Super Sub have any impact on player justice refunds?

Yes it will! With the introduction of Super Sub, Justice Refunds offer applies only to player-related markets where Super Sub doesn’t apply.

Do I need to Opt In?

There is no Opt In required for this promotion.


What is the Super Sub icon?

 A yellow Super Sub icon will appear on every applicable market and competition. The icon will also appear in the betslip and in the 'my bets' section to highlight where the Super Sub offer is active.


What will this look like in my bet slip?


Your sub will be updated and resulted in real time where data feed allows. For most leagues / markets, this will be immediate. Some leagues will have slower feeds and therefore betslip updates will be slightly delayed. Please bear this in mind and await and check the settlement of your bet before getting in touch.

Is the offer available pre-match and in-play?

Yes, the offer is available pre-match and in-play.


What type of bet will it apply to?

Super Sub is available on singles, multiples, and Bet Builder bets.


What happens if more than one substitute comes on at the same time?

The substitute that replaces your player will be determined by OPTA


Can I cash out my bet when the substitute comes on?

Cash out will be available until a player is replaced by a substitute in your bet. Cash out is not available once a substitute is active in your bet.


In the event of an outfield player being taken off for a goalkeeper what would happen?

If an outfield player gets replaced by a goalkeeper, your bet would still run and all bets placed on the original player would transfer over to the goalkeeper. For example, if you had backed the outfield player to be carded or fouled, this would transfer over to the substitute Goalkeeper. Although this would also apply to Goalscorer bets as well... stranger things have happened!

Are winnings paid out in full?

Yes, winning bets that have Super Sub applied will be paid out in full as cash.


Does Super Sub apply to Extra Time?

No, Super Sub will apply to 90 minutes of normal time only.


When will my bet be settled?

Bets will be settled at 90 minutes.


What happens if my sub is subbed off?

Your bet will apply to the substitute who replaces the original substitute. The player you bet on will display in your bet slip and the replacement will be shown as the player who finished the game.


Example: If you bet on Kevin De Bruyne and he is replaced by Jérémy Doku, who is then replaced by Jack Grealish, your bet will pass from De Bruyne, to Doku, to Grealish. The betslip will display Kevin De Bruyne and the final replacement Jack Grealish.
