How to bet less than the minimum stake on Betfair

We’ve put together a short video to explain how to bet below the minimum stake on Betfair Exchange.

Just click the video below to get stuck in.

Using this trick you can bet as little as 1p but in our video example we’ve chosen £1 to demonstrate it.

How to place your minimum stake on Betfair:

  1. Choose the Betfair exchange market and race/match you want to bet on.
  2. Click the blue back box.
  3. Enter a stake of £2 but instead of betting at the available odds, you bet at much bigger odds which won’t be matched. For example, if the matched odds are 9.4, you would enter 100.
  4. Click place bets.
  5. Increasing the odds means the bet hasn’t been matched, meaning it hasn’t been successfully placed.
  6. You can now increase your stake. To do this, you should increase your stake by the amount you actually want to bet. For this example, we would change £2 in our stake box to £3.
  7. Click place bets.
  8. This now gives us two separate bets, neither of which have been matched or fully placed.
  9. Now cancel the £2 bet. This leaves us with just a £1 bet.
  10. Change the odds to the currently available odds. For this example, we would change our odds of 100 back to the matched odds of 9.4.
  11. We now have a £1 stake at the available odds of 9.4.
  12. Click place bets.

This is a quick and easy trick that lets you place below the minimum stake on Betfair exchange. It proves very useful when testing out systems or betting on big odds selections.
