This is a special bet that combines or makes two bets that relate to corners together. Alternative corners can have two options which are “first half corners”, “second half corners”, and “corners 2 way”.
First half corners do consider only the number of corners that are scored in the first half of the soccer game. This includes those corners that are even taken at added time of the first half.
Second half corners on the other hand only count the number of corners that are taken immediately after the kickoff of the second half of the football match. Those that are taken past 90th minute but as part of the added time are counted. The only ones that are excluded are those that are taken much later at the extra time of the game. No bookie will ever accept to pay any punter because the total number of corners at the second half got to the intended target at the extra time.
The “corners 2 way” is also one of the alternative corners that the bookies provide to their players. This wager often ends with a .5. It can also be referred to it as the “total corners” but only under some special circumstances. This, however, is made available to the market mostly when it involves big matches like Manchester United vs. Real Madrid.
Of all the alternative corners, none of them is refundable when the bettor loses the bet unlike in Asian corners which have room for refunds but with some conditions. Betting on alternative corners means that you can either go big or go home. That is the only choice that the punters have.
