Troubleshooting a Coral live stream
As with all things technology, sometime things don’t quite go to plan so if you can’t access a live stream on Coral, here are a few things to try out:
- Check that you are logged in to Coral and you have a positive, real money balance
- Check that you have the correct internet speed to stream – and check you have enough data if you are watching from a mobile device. Remember, audio and visual streams can really eat into your data, so check your service provider plan.
- Make sure that any firewalls you have switched on are configured to accept the live stream from Coral
- Ensure that you are not restricted by your country
The live stream and in play betting integration
The in play betting system is one area where Coral really excels – they give you the opportunity to cash out option of your original stake and leave the rest on the live fixture, which is great when you are not feeling quite so confident. Coral has a well-organised system, which is particularly useful as stakes can change very quickly when you are doing in play betting.
