Coral Deposits & Withdrawals

When you have signed up with Coral, you will need to choose a way to deposit funds into your account in order to start betting. This involves registering a debit card or credit card unless you choose one of the e-wallet options to facilitate your betting account smoothly.

The minimum deposit amount is £5 and you are recommended to use the same payment method when making a withdrawal. There are no processing charges with either and you can withdraw from as little as £0.01, with customers expected to allow between 2-5 working days to receive funds from debit or credit card.

With regard to e-wallet solutions such as PayPal, Skrill or Neteller, you should expect to receive any withdrawn amount back to your account within 24 hours.

Cash Out

Coral offer a variety of Cash Out options and we recommend taking advantage of this facility for certain bets that you make. If your bet is looking better than when you originally placed it, you should be able to Cash Out for a profit. Similarly, if you place an accumulator bet and are sweating on the final leg ahead of a big payout, then Cash Out could be a good option.

Coral also offer customers Partial Cash Out, with this option allowing you to Cash Out part of your bet and let the rest of it ride. The slider allows you to choose how much you want to take out of the bet, ranging from 9% - 90%. The rest of the stake will remain on your original selection.

Coral offer Cash Out on a wide range of sports including football, horse racing, cricket, tennis, darts and snooker. There is a Cash Out icon next to the available betting markets and here is the full list for football:
