Game Details

Game Name: Take 5 Live

Game Price: You choose your bet amount either £1, £2 or £5

The Take5Live is a game where you predict whether a goal will be scored by ANY team within the next five minutes of the match. You simply choose the event you want to bet on, push the button and hope for a goal in the next 5 minutes. All bets have a 4/1 odds, in other words if you bet £1 and win you will get £5 back.

Once a bet is placed, a 9-second delay applies before the bet becomes active. If the game becomes suspended during the 9-second delay the bet will not be placed. No bets can be placed if the game is suspended.

Bets are reconciled immediately once the goal is scored. For a goal to be considered valid it has to be registered by SpiffX within the five-minute period. Delays in showing goals may be experienced.

How to Play

Place Bet

By selecting an event in the list of events you are directed to the bet slip of the event. Here you can press and hold the button for 3 seconds to place a bet. The stake amount is chosen by you.

When the 3 seconds have passed an in-play delay of 9 seconds commences. If the event is not suspended during those 9 seconds, the bet is matched and the stake amount is deducted from the account balance and the bet is placed. 

The 5 minute countdown then commences.

The active bet is visible in the list of events by clicking on the Menu item 'Events'. The figure indicates the number of active bets whilst the animated circle shows the remaining time of the bet (first bet if there is more than one).

Goal and Win

If there is a goal on an event with an active bet, the bet is a win and the account is credited with the winning amount. You will be notified of the winning with a pop-up that appears on screen.

No Goal and Loss

If a bet has been active for 5 minutes and there was no goal on that event, the bet is a loss. A pop-up notifies you about the loss.

Multiple Bets

You can place multiple simultaneous bets on an event by clicking on the 'Place a new bet' button in the betslip whilst already having an active bet. When doing so a new betslip is shown and you can place another bet. There is a box next to the "Place a new bet" button that shows the amount of current active bets on the event.

By clicking on the "Bets" box a pop-up shows information about the current active bets on the event. The pop-up shows the potential profit and the remaining time of each bet.

Game Rules

Goal Revoked and/or Error in reporting Goal?

In the case that a goal is first confirmed during a match and on the Take5Live game and then cancelled by the referee or in the case that an error is made by SpiffX in reporting a goal, SpiffX will immediately rectify the score. Any winnings distributed to players in relation to that goal will be immediately reversed. This procedure is clearly explained to the player in the Rules. Refer to section 2b above and images Game Rules.

Furthermore, the player will also get a popup notification during the match informing the player of the correction – Image 'Goal Correction'

What happens with suspensions? 

If the player is holding the button and the market gets suspended before the bet is placed? The player will receive a notification “Play suspended, you can’t place a bet”. 

If the game is suspended once the bet has been placed?  

The suspension time is counted in the 5-minute window. e.g. Player places bet, after 1 minute the game is suspended for 2 minutes, the player will only have had 3 minutes of the total 5 minutes in which to win. 

If there is a penalty? 

If the penalty is scored within the 5-minute bet the player wins. The player cannot place a bet once a penalty is announced during suspended play and will be notified as such.
