Future Fulfillment – the queued placement system
FUTURE FULFILLMENT allows users to set a price and stake that is currently not available in the market and queue the order until it can be matched. The placement algorithm will continually monitor the market until the price satisfies the placement criteria and then automatically execute bets to fill the requested volume without the need for further manual interaction.
You simply request the bet you want and choose a placement time in the betslip during which time the matching algorithm will try to match the bet. The bet, or part of it, will either be matched or if time expires or the game starts (if you have requested a pre-game bet), the order will be withdrawn. You can cancel the order manually at any time, unless the bet has just been initiated with some bookmaker.
You will be able to set a maximum placement time of 24 hours for soccer and 2 hours for Tennis, Basketball, American Football and Baseball. For other sports the placement time is maximum 1 minute, as it is harder to get accurate information on when games start. You can then choose the length of time that you wish the FUTURE FULFILLMENT order to remain open. Once this time elapses the order will close and there will be no further placement attempts
Once the future fulfillment order has been ‘placed’ into the market using the betslip, our matching algorithm will listen for any price changes, the navigation bar at the top of the page will change to reflect the number of pending orders you have, and the bet bar will create a pending bet. As with all orders it can be cancelled at any time from the trade page by clicking the ‘X’ within the red box in the bet bar:
If the market price satisfies the requested odds then the system will automatically attempt placement as if a user had clicked ‘Place Order’ when the price and volume was available in the market. The bet bar and order page will update to reflect this.
In order not to tie up all your funds you are able to have pending orders amounting to 10x your available balance. Please note that this does not apply if you want your bet put up on Exchanges as funds are then locked up in full. The system will make a check that you have funds available before placing a bet if the requested odds becomes available. No individual order can be for a higher amount than the available balance when requesting the order.
If you have allowed that offers can be put up on Exchanges (more about that option here) you will have the best chance to get your order matched.
