# Odds API Update Intervals

Odds update at intervals which depend on the market type and the proximity to an event's start time.

Market Type Pre-Match Update Interval In-Play Update Interval
Featured Markets
60 seconds 40 seconds
Additional markets
60 seconds 60 seconds
Outrights / futures 5 minutes 60 seconds

Six hours before an event's start time, the update interval begins decreasing from the pre-match interval, eventually reaching the in-play interval once the event goes live.
