Why Pulse Betting Is A Game Changer
January 22, 2020
Pulse Betting is the latest craze to hit the world of Football wagering, and it’s pretty simple. You do need to be able to remain cool, calm and collected under pressure, and need real-time access to your bookmaker of choice. If you’re interested in learning more, you’re in the right place.
Betting in Pulses
Pulse Betting is just what its name suggests; bets that are based on specific pulses of time. You might have heard of Micro Betting, where in-game wagers are placed on a specific event, such as a Cricketer scoring a 6, happening within the next few minutes. The “micro” refers to the time scale, and definitely not to the size of the stakes, which can be just as large and lucrative as other bets.
Pulse Betting is similar in that you also need to be watching the sport live, and need to put money on a specific event happening within a certain timeframe. Where it differs from Micro Betting is in its markets and its complexity.
At this stage, the only Pulse Bet you can place is on a goal being scored in Football. Wagers don’t get simpler than that; you don’t even have to say which team will land the ball in the net. However, what makes it interesting is that it’s always a 3-part bet. You can put money on a goal being scored in the next 30 seconds, the next minute, the next 5 minutes or the next 10 minutes.
Each time period is divided into 3, with differing payouts. For example, if you bet on a goal landing within 30 seconds you could be paid out the smallest amount if it happens within the first 14 seconds, more if it happens before 24 seconds have passed, and the most if it happens in the last 5 seconds. The thinking here is that you have more insight if your prediction comes through a little later, so you should be more rewarded.
Pros and Cons
Are Pulse Bets ultimately a good idea? They’re very exciting, and allow you to react to exactly what is happening on the field. If a star player is having a bad day, or an underdog is doing unexpectedly well, you can capitalise on that and place your wager.
Whenever you’re putting money on a sports event, the best thing you can do is as much research as possible. This is even more important than usual when you’re Pulse Betting, since you need to think about how the behaviour of others, the weather conditions or other factors will a Footballer within the next few moments.
The odds are higher for Pulse than for pre-game and other live bets, so you need to manage your bankroll especially carefully here. Set a limit before you start, and make sure you don’t go over it. Stick to small, regular stakes rather than the large sum you might put on a sure winner in a horse race.
Our last comment about Pulse wagers is that they’re not always available, and only apply to Football goals, so they shouldn’t be your go-to stake. If you’re interested in Hockey, Cricket, Tennis, Basketball or any other sports, they’re not even an option for you to consider.
Your best move is to use them to complement your other betting, using them more for the thrill factor than to gain big payouts. There’s nothing quite like watching the athletes give it their all and score a goal when you’ve got money riding on the next few moments. Just make sure the bulk of your bankroll is elsewhere
