Similar to Ladbrokes Oddsboost, Sportsbet has a ‘Powerplay’ function. Every day this lets you increase the odds on one selection across all of the racing markets Sportsbet has tp offer. The PowePlay boosts range in size depending on the starting odds but can be up to 20%.
To do this you need to make a selection and go to your ‘Bet slip’. A little ‘Powerplay’ icon will be above where you enter your stake. Click it and your odds should increase by anything from 10% – 20%.
As you can only use this once per day it is much easier to wait until race day if you’re looking to place a bet using the Sportsbet ‘Powerplay’ feature.
