It is important to note that winning bets are paid out to your point balance immediately and can be used for future bets during the same contest. We recommend playing along live during each contests as odds and lines are updated throughout the game. Once all your points are used you cannot place any additional bets in that contest. Head back to the contests menu to search for additional contests to enter.
Locked or Paused Lines
We have a real-time data integration with one of the most trusted online odds providers. During live contests when the lines are updating, they become paused within the Barstool Bets platform. This is common in betting and is directly related to what's happening in the fixed game action. Lines can lock on anything from first downs, injuries, scoring plays or the end of a period/quarter. The lines will automatically refresh and update as they become available.
Please note, in MLB contests, it’s common for the pre-match odds to lock before the starting pitcher/lineups are announced. Baseball lines aren’t usually up until a day prior, sometimes the day of. Live lines may not become available until directly before or at the contest start time.
View Your Bets
You can track and view your entire bet history, including overall record at any time by selecting My Bets from the app navigation menu. You'll be able to access in-play bets directly from any contest by selecting My Bets from the bottom bets menu.
