The Betway First Goal Wins offer is one of Betways most popular betting offers for matched bettors as it returns a good profit for minimal risk. It works in a similar way to Bet365’s Early Payout Offer and Paddy Power’s 2 UP offer and is available on selected football matches.
To participate, you simply need to back either team to win in the football match which is announced by Betway. Then, should the team which you back score the first goal in the match, Betway will settle your bet as a winner regardless of the final result.
For example, if Betway made First Goal Wins available on the match between Newcastle United and Southampton and you backed Newcastle to win the match, if Newcastle scored the first goal, your bet would win. Even if Southampton ended up winning the match or it ended in a draw, Betway would still pay out.
When matched betting this offer, you would simply back either team to win and then lay your bet on a betting exchange such as Betfair Exchange or Smarkets. If your team scores the first goal, your back bet would win but you will also have your lay bet still running. You then have the option of either trading out your lay bet to hopefully lock in a profit or you could let your lay bet run and if the other team comes back to win the game or the match ends in a draw, both your back bet with Betwaay and your lay bet with the betting exchange would win!
