If you pick your bookie carefully, even if your bet would lose elsewhere, it might not with the bookie concerned. That's what we call a BetSaver. This could be because you might get some or all of your stake back, as a free bet or even as cash, if some specified event happens that was different from what you bet on. In some cases, you might even get paid out as a winner, even if the original thing you bet on doesn't happen but something else does. We also call deals a BetSaver when you might get more value for your bets by placing it with a specific bookie, than you might get if you placed the same bet elsewhere.
