Any un-played or postponed game will be treated as a non-runner for settlement purposes, unless we can establish within a reasonable time frame - using publicly available information from governing bodies - that the game has been rescheduled within three days of the original start time in which case the bet will stand.
Any bets on a game abandoned before the completion of 90-mins will be void except for those bets where the outcome has already been determined. For example - if a game is 5-2 and is abandoned with 10 minutes left to play then over 6.5 goals will be settled as a winner, and under 7 goals settled as a loser.
Where a game is played at a venue other than the venue listed then all bets will stand providing that the home team is still designated as such. If the home and away team are reversed - i.e. the away team is now the home team - then bets placed on the original listing will be void.
If any team starts a 90 minute competitive game with less than 11 players - for any reason - all bets on that game will be made void.
Soccer betting with us assumes games are conducted in a standard fashion, with 90 minutes of play across two 45 minute halves. The exception to this rule is in relation to friendly games, where all game bets will be settled based on the actual result when the game finishes, irrespective of whether the full 90 minutes is played. We reserve the right to void bets on an event should we find it was not conducted using said ‘standard’ format.
Bet settlement will be determined by the official websites of the event or association. Where evidence from TV pictures, screenshots or game reports indicate that the official site has made an error, we reserve the right to make settlements from alternative sources. The official result announced at the end of the event will be used to settle bet results.
Decisions after the game taken by governing bodies will not count for betting purposes. Results will be taken after full time, including any injury time added by the referee. Extra time and penalty shootouts will be excluded, unless stated otherwise.
All bets specifically indicating Extra Time and Penalty Shootouts are based on the extra time and penalty shootouts results only. Extra time is defined at the 30 minute period following the conclusion of regulation time. Extra time does not include the added injury time at the 90th minute of regulation. The result at the end of full time (90 minutes plus injury time) does not count.
A futures bet involves the selection of a winner in a tournament, competition, league or event - either from the onset or at any stage of the tournament, competition, league or event - prior to the conclusion of the competition, where the results are still undecided.
There are no refunds on non-starters for futures betting, and the Dead Heat Rule applies to all futures betting (see below).
In the event of at least two competitors being declared the winner (a Dead Heat), the number of paying places remaining after clear winners are settled is divided by the number of players sharing those places.
Bets are accepted on 90 minutes play only.
Every effort will be made to quote first/last player to score odds for all possible participants. However, players not originally quoted will count as winners should they score the first/last goal. Bets on players not taking part in the game will be void, as will bets on first player to score where the selection comes on after the first goal is scored. All players that take part in a game will be considered runners for last player to score betting.
Please note that own goals do not count in the settlement of bets.
Sports betting in its most basic form - place a bet on whom you think will win, lose, or draw in soccer. If one or more participants fail to start, all bets are considered void. At least one participant must finish the event or the bet is considered void. If all participants are disqualified or otherwise excluded, bets are void. If both participants in a head-to-head achieve the same result, and no draw odds are offered, then bets will be void. In cases with three or more participants, where two participants or more achieve the same result, then the Dead Heat rule will apply.
If the total amount of goals/points etc. is exactly equal to the line quoted, and no winning line is quoted, the bets will be void.
Over/Under bets will include goals scored In the 30 minute extra time period, but not penalty shootout goals that are not added to the final score.
If the scores are level after the handicap has been accounted for and no odds have been offered for a handicap draw, then bets will be void.
If a draw is offered as a 3 way market and the result of the game is a tie, the tie option will be settled as a winner and the selections on either team will be settled as losers.
Cards shown during the half time interval or after the final whistle has blown will not count, as well as those cards shown to non-players. Cards will only count when shown to players who are on the field of play. Second yellow cards awarded to the same player will count only as a red card. If the first cards shown involve two or more players from different teams being booked/sent-off in the same incident, bets on the ‘First Yellow/Red Card’ will be void.
For the purposes of calculating booking points, the following applies:
If a player receives two yellow cards and is subsequently shown a red card, they receive a total of 35 booking points. 35 points is the most any player can receive.
A red card counts as two cards in the Total Cards bets, while a yellow card counts as one. Bets on players to be carded or sent off will be void if the player does not take part in the game.
Corners awarded but not taken will not count for settlement purposes. For example - a corner awarded but not taken before the referee blows for full time will not count. If a referee orders a corner to be retaken this will only count once.
Corners awarded in 30 minute Extra Time do not count for settlement purposes.
There are three main types of Asian Handicap:
Whole Ball (e.g. Team A -0, Team A -1, Team A -2)
These are written as whole numbers with the handicap being applied to the result at the end of the game. A handicap draw here would result in a push with all bets being returned.
Half Ball (e.g. Team A -0.5, Team A -1.5, Team A -2.5)
This type of Asian handicap removes the chance of a push and is written with half numbers. The handicap is added to the result at the end of the game.
Split Ball (e.g. Team A -0 & -0.5, Team A -0.5 & -1.0, Team A -1.0 & -1.5)
With this type of Asian Handicap, your bet is split equally between the whole ball and the half ball handicaps. Half of your bet will go on the whole ball handicap and half will go on the half ball. A handicap draw on any part of your bet here would result in a push for that part of the bet.
Both players must start for the bet to stand. If either player does not start then all bets are void. In a 2-way bet, all bets are void should the outcome be a Tie.
The named player must play any part in the game for the bet to have action. If the player does not play any part, then all bets are void. This includes:
A pass is defined as any intentional ball played from one player to another. Passes include open play passes, goal kicks, corners, and free-kicks played as a pass, but exclude crosses, keeper throws, and throw-ins. Bets will be voided if the player does not play any part in the game. All bets will be settled in accordance with official data provided by Opta.
A tackle is defined as where a player connects with the ball in a challenge on the ground where he successfully takes the ball away from the player in possession. The tackled player must clearly be in possession of the ball before the tackle is made for it to count. When a player cuts out a pass this does not count as a tackle, this is denoted as an interception. Bets will be voided if the player does not play any part in the game. All bets will be settled in accordance with official data provided by Opta.
A shot is defined as any clear attempt by a player to score on the opponent's goal, inclusive of all attempts that are denoted as on target, off target or blocked. Bets will be voided if the player does not play any part in the game. All bets will be settled in accordance with official data provided by Opta.
A 'Shot on Target' is defined as any attempt on goal that:
Shots that directly hit the frame of the goal will not count as Shots on Target, unless the ball subsequently goes into the net, resulting in a goal.
Shots blocked by another player, who is not the last man, will not count as Shots on Target.
Bets will be voided if the player does not play any part in the game. All bets will be settled in accordance with official data provided by Opta.
A shot outside the box is defined as any shot where the position of the ball is located outside the penalty area when the shot is taken. Any event happening on a line will be considered inside that area. For example, a shot on the penalty area line will count as being inside the box. Bets will be voided if the player does not play any part in the game. All bets will be settled in accordance with official data provided by Opta.
A cross is defined as any intentional ball played from a wide position intending to reach a team-mate in a specific area in front of the goal. Bets will be voided if the player does not play any part in the game. All bets will be settled in accordance with official data provided by Opta.
An offside is awarded to the player deemed to be in an offside position where a free-kick is awarded. If two or more players are in an offside position when the pass is played, the player considered to be most active and trying to play the ball is given offside. Bets will be voided if the player does not play any part in the game. All bets will be settled in accordance with official data provided by Opta.
A goal inside the box is defined as any goal given to a player where the location of the ball when the shot is taken is inside the penalty area. Any shot taken on the penalty area line will count as being inside the box. Bets will be voided if the player does not play any part in the game. All bets will be settled in accordance with official data provided by Opta.
A goal outside the box is defined as any goal given to a player where the location of the ball when the shot is taken is outside the penalty area. Any shot taken on the penalty area line will be denoted as being inside the box, and therefore will not count. Bets will be voided if the player does not play any part in the game. All bets will be settled in accordance with official data provided by the official league source.
Any attempt on goal which hits the frame of the goal will count towards this market, with the exception of those which hit the frame of the goal before going into the net and therefore count as goals. Any shot that hits the frame multiple times (e.g. crossbar and left post) will only count as hitting the woodwork once. Hitting the woodwork will only count for the attacking team (and hence, the player who performed the last action), even when the ball hits the frame coming from a defensive back pass. Bets will be voided if the player does not play any part in the game. All bets will be settled in accordance with official data provided by Opta.
Both players must start for the bet to have action. If either player does not start then all bets are void.
In some games we offer bets on events occurring within a certain time period, e.g. Time of First Goal. For clarity, the first minute of the game is from 00:00 to 00:59, the eleventh minute is from 10:00 to 10:59, etc. For a bet on a goal to be scored between minute 21 and minute 30 to be a winner, a goal would have to be scored between 20:00 and 29:59 on the game clock.

If the scores are level after the handicap has been accounted for, the winning selection will be the Handicap Draw. If no odds have been offered for a handicap draw, then bets will be void.
Bets will be settled based on the result announced by the organising authority (e.g. FIFA for World Cup games). Players who take any part in the game will be deemed 'runners'. Bets on players who take no part in the game will be void. In the event of the award being presented to more than one player dead-heat rules will apply. Prices will be available upon request for players not quoted. An unquoted player will count as the winner should they receive the man of the game award.
