The terms and conditions for enhanced odds can be a little tricky to navigate through. There is usually a set amount that qualify for the offer - any bets over the set amount are in this case not valid for the offer. The winnings are only for the difference, as in the amount that has been enhanced. The winnings are usually in the form of free bets. Although, it is important to underline that different enhanced odds comes with different terms and conditions attached, so remember to read up on this beforehand.
Most enhanced odds winnings are paid out as free bets that comes with wagering requirements.
The great thing about enhanced odds is that you have nothing to lose, especially if you’re happy with the original odds. If you think that a team has a good chance at winning a match and the odds is then increased from two times to four times the amount of your bet - then the enhanced generally just comes with benefits. The only drawback is that the winnings usually comes in the form of free bets, and it is also not uncommon that the turnaround needed to qualify can limit the chances of benefiting from the boost. So, just make sure to read through those terms and conditions before you do anything - if the teams chances are good enough and that you are able to qualify for the turnaround.
Along with enhanced odds comes the opportunity to set the odds high, since the odds are not connected to the team's’ chances to win. This is why these kinds of offers are a fun addition to the game - it is quite rare that you put a single game to four, six or eight times the betting amount. However, if you take enhanced odds into account then this is something that is quite obtainable. The drawback is like we’ve mentioned before, that there can be a few bumps along the road to claiming your winnings, but this can be a very fair price to pay when you manage to nail high odds on something that originally never had high odds attached.
