If you've never heard of a coupon before then it’s worth reading this post before reading on.
When you want or need to monitor activity in multiple markets from the same event in the same place, then using Bet Angels Coupons to display your markets will allow you to do that.
The Bet Angel Coupon Editor allows you to custom create and fully configure your own coupons, giving you full control of what information is displayed to you, as well as how and where you want it laid out.
You can create and save as many coupon designs and layouts as you want, which is especially useful if you trade different types of sports or have different strategies for a sport as it means you can switch between them quickly and easily with a click of your mouse.
Here are just a few ways you could configure a coupon in Bet Angel.
If you’re wondering why there are gaps or some markets appear to be missing, don’t worry this is on purpose, one of the options you have when configuring a coupon is to use ‘Padding’, this allows you to align events across coupon markets, so if you look at the very top image again you’ll see the ‘Benfica Vs Eintracht Frankfurt’ markets all begin inline with each other after the ‘Arsenal Vs Napoli’ market ends.
They can also be ‘locked’ so that when you scroll up or down with ANY of the scroll bars all panels will move in sync keeping your markets nicely aligned and easy to navigate even if you have 100s of markets loaded.
Another way you may want to configure your coupon is to view markets from an event vertically, in the image below there is a fixture in each of the 3 vertical panels (remember you can add as many panels you want) with there related markets you have selected displayed below in any order you want them.
You can also quickly and easily select between other markets using the pick lists at the top
Or if space is an issue then you can reduce this to one panel but still have the ability to quickly select from the different events you have loaded
As you can see from the images above coupons are displayed using Bet Angel’s existing Watch List feature, so when configuring your coupon this gives you the full benefits of all the existing display options of the Watch List at your disposal, ie, you can choose what to show in your coupon from back/lay prices, your Profit & loss, traded Volume, live tennis scores, alerts and of course if you have an open trade you can green it up from the coupon without the need to open the full market!
Keeping Market Infomation Updated
As your likely to have a lot of markets in your coupon its recommended that when using coupons also ensure you have 'Steaming' enabled so you can refresh and update your markets as fast as every 20ms (50 times a second). See the following link on how to enable streaming if your unfamiliar with it.
