If after such efforts, funds still remain in such account, then these funds shall be remitted by Sportingbet to the LGA. If, during this period, the account in question has a balance of less than €5, then the administrative fee levied shall be this lesser sum.
Further, if any kind of bonus or free bet or credit of any kind has been credited by Sportingbet to a customer's account but has not been used by that customer within a period of 2 months thereafter, Sportingbet shall be entitled without notice to the appropriate customer to reclaim that bonus or free bet or credit and amend that customer's account accordingly.

9. Settlement Rules

9.1 Bets are settled to Win unless Each Way is selected. An Each Way bet is a bet of twice the selected unit stake. It contains one bet of unit stake on the selection to Win and one bet of unit stake on the selection to Place according to the terms advertised for the event.
For example:

£10 Each Way on Tiger Woods to win the US Masters (£20 staked)
Win Odds: 8/1, Place terms 1/4 odds a place 1,2,3,4
If Tiger wins, both Win and Place bets are winners;
£10 @8/1 = £90 (including stake) plus £10 @ 2/1 (i.e. 8 x 1/4) = £30
Total Returns = £120
If Tiger finishes 2nd, 3rd, or 4th Total Returns =£30.

9.2 Settlement will be based on the odds and Place terms applicable when the bet is accepted. Sportingbet reserves the right to alter the Place terms for Each Way betting before or during any event or market.

9.3 For the purpose of calculation, Each Way Doubles, Trebles etc. are settled as two distinct bets, i.e. Win on to Win and Place onto Place.

9.4 Place bets are not accepted unless an equal amount is invested to Win. Any Place stake inadvertently accepted in excess of the Win stake will be void. Place-only bets may be accepted on some Pari-Mutuel Markets and any markets specifically set-up to take such bets.

9.5 In a Dead Heat the stake money on a selection is divided by the number of runners involved in the Dead Heat. The full odds are then paid to the divided stake, with the remainder of the money lost.

9.6 Where a selection is made void, then for single bets the stake will be returned. Bets on selections that do not run for whatever reason may or may not be returned depending on the rules for the individual sport or event. In accumulative bets the stake will run on to the remaining selections with a Double becoming a Single, a Treble becoming a Double and so on.

9.7 The official result is final for settlement purposes except where specific rules state the contrary. Subsequent changes in results, whether due to disciplinary hearings or otherwise are disregarded. Where in the reasonable judgement of Sportingbet no official result is available, the result will be:
determined by an independent authority of Sportingbet's choosing whose verdict shall be final for all purposes, or otherwise determined in the reasonable opinion of Sportingbet with such opinion to be formed by reference to all reasonably available evidence.

9.8 Bets will provisionally be settled by reference to all available evidence, but if the result which is determined as set out above differs from the result used for provisional settlement, settlement may be retrospectively adjusted so as to reflect the result so determined.

9.9 Final settlement of bets will occur when Sportingbet considers that the final result and settlement has been completed satisfactorily with reference to all available evidence.

9.10 Sportingbet reserves the right to terminate (i) markets on specific sports and/or (ii) games, and in such circumstances, will notify affected customers.

10. Related Bets

10.1 Multiple bets that combine different selections within the same event are not accepted where the outcome of one affects or is affected by the other.
For example, in a Football match involving Manchester United, two selections may be:
Manchester United to win 2-0 and
Manchester United's Wayne Rooney to be scorer of the first match goal.

The bets are related as Wayne Rooney's goal-scoring performance would influence Manchester United winning the match 2-0. A double combining the above selections is not possible using their market prices.
Special prices may be offered for the combined eventuality. When a special price is not available and such a bet is taken in error, it will be settled as two single bets with the stake equally divided.

10.2 Multiple bets that combine selections that are resolved at different times but still within the same tournament. These bets will be settled as instructed with the price of the second or subsequent selection being determined at each individual stage.
For example, in a Tennis tournament two selections may be:
Roger Federer to win the semi-final of Wimbledon and
Roger Federer to win the Wimbledon tournament outright.

As the odds of the second selection depends on the outcome of the first, the odds of Roger Federer winning the tournament at the time the bet was accepted cannot be used to calculate the double odds. The correct odds after the initial selection is completed will be attributed instead.

10.3 Multiple bets that combine selections within different events where the outcome of one affects or is affected by the other.
For example, two Horse Racing selections may be:
Septimus to win the Dante Stakes and
Septimus to win the Epsom Derby.

As the odds of Septimus to win the Epsom Derby depends on whether he wins the Dante Stakes (a recognised Derby trial), the odds for Septimus to win the Epsom Derby at the time the bet was accepted cannot be used to calculate the double odds. A special price to win both races may be quoted instead.

10.4 In the case of all multiples including selections with related outcomes, if a bet is taken inadvertently Sportingbet reserves the right to void part of or the whole of the bet.

Back to top

11. Dead Heat Rules

11.1 A Dead Heat occurs where two or more participants in an event tie for first and second place.
In the event of two selections having a Dead Heat, the customer's stake is split with half the stake applied to the winning selection and the other half lost. With more than two selections, the stake is split proportionately.

Back to top

12. Ante Post Bets

Horseracing and Greyhounds

Bet Acceptance

Bets are accepted where Sportingbet offers prices and a bet is only valid if after clicking on 'Place Bet' the customer is returned a Bet Receipt with confirmation of the bet being placed.

Bets are accepted at Board Price for named and numbered selections in races where there are three or more runners.
Each-way bets at a Board Price are governed by the SP place betting terms and are determined by the actual number of starters and not by the number of declared runners when the price is taken.

If you wish to bet at a Board Price it must be clearly stipulated when placing your bet and ensure it is confirmed during the transaction otherwise Sportingbet reserves the right to settle the bet at SP.

Bet Settlement

Bets on horseracing are governed by Tattersalls' Rules of Betting. Tattersalls' Rules or an official announcement of the Tattersalls' Committee will govern the settlement of bets should a situation arise not covered by these rules.

All winning bets will be settled at the Special Day of Race Price, Board Price, Show Price, Pari-Mutuel (PMU) or Starting Price (SP) shown on Sportingbet at the time the bet was accepted.

In the event of an incorrect price being shown on the website, bets will be settled at the correct price at the time the bet was struck or at SP, whichever is the greater.

Sportingbet reserves the right to adjust Board Prices.

Sportingbet pays out on the Official Race Result (not First Past the Post Result). But where a result is amended after the Official Result (ie after the weigh-in), for example as a result of a subsequent disqualification on appeal, the amendment will be ignored for settlement purposes.

Unless a Board Price or Special Day of Race Price is requested, all bets on horse and greyhound racing in Great Britain and Ireland are settled at SP. In a race where no SP is returned, all bets will be void.

Unless otherwise stated (Sportingbet reserves the right to not offer each-way terms on any race), the place part of each-way bets will be settled as per the following place terms:

2-4 runners - Win only
5-7 runners - 1/4 odds first and second placed runners
8 + runners - 1/5 odds first, second and third placed runners

In Handicap races the following place terms apply:
12 + runners - 1/4 odds first, second and third placed runners
16 + runners - 1/4 odds first, second, third and fourth placed runners

If an each-way bet is placed for a race or event which is or becomes Win-only (e.g. reduced to four runners), the total stake will be invested to win.

In the event of a Rule 4, the amount deducted in the £ from winnings will be based on the price of the withdrawn horse, at the time when the bet was struck, according to the following table.

1/9 or shorter 90p
2/11 to 2/17 85p
1/4 to 1/5 80p
3/10 to 2/7 75p
2/5 to 1/3 70p
8/15 to 4/9 65p
8/13 to 4/7 60p
4/5 to 4/6 55p
20/21 to 5/6 50p
Evens to 6/5 45p
5/4 to 6/4 40p
8/5 to 7/4 35p
9/5 to 9/4 30p
12/5 to 3/1 25p
16/5 to 4/1 20p
9/2 to 11/2 15p
6/1 to 9/1 10p
10/1 to 14/1 5p
Over 14/1 No deduction

In the event that a runner is withdrawn which will result in a deduction under Rule 4, no Board Price can be laid after the time of the withdrawal, unless the market has been reformed. This does not apply to Special Day of Race Price.

Should a Greyhound be withdrawn, all Show Prices laid prior to the withdrawal will be settled at SP. No Board Price can be laid until a new show is transmitted.

Withdrawals/Non-Runners

Bets will be void on horse races (excluding Ante Post races) where a runner is withdrawn or adjudged not to have started and declared a Non-Runner by the starter.

Bets placed at Special Day of Race Prices or Early Prices, prior to the withdrawal, will be subject to a Rule 4 and will be determined by the Sportingbet price of the withdrawn horse at the time the bet was accepted.

Show Price bets placed prior to withdrawal will also be subject to a Rule 4 deduction - dependent on the Non-Runner's price at the time it was withdrawn, as provided by SIS. In reformed markets, the total deduction on the two or more horses - one in the original market and one in the reformed market - will be calculated on the prices applicable in the original market.

Bets on horses in subsequent markets that then have one or more withdrawn horses will have a deduction calculated on the prices applicable to that market at the time of the withdrawal.

In the event that there is insufficient time to form a new market on the race, SP bets may also be subject to a Rule 4.

Re-run Races

In the event of a race being re-run due to a false start or any other reason, bets will be void on horses taking no part in the re-run.

Returns on the remaining runners will be subject to a Rule 4 deduction and place terms will be governed by the number of runners taking part in the re-run.

Abandoned Races/Postponed Races

In the event of a walkover or void race, bets will be void.

If a race meeting is postponed to another day, bets will be void. This applies to all Day-of-Race and Ante-Post Races.

Ante Post Betting

Bets placed under Ante Post Rules (any bets struck before the overnight declaration stage) will stand whether the horse runs or not, unless the horse is balloted out or the race is postponed, in which case bets will be void.

Time of Acceptance

All bets selected with pre-race prices taken from Sportingbet will be accepted up until the official 'Off'.

If a race meeting is postponed to another day, bets will be void. This applies to all Day-of-Race and Ante-Post Races.

Special Day Of Race Price Races

Special Day of Race Prices may be offered for certain horse or greyhound events as advertised and will be available up to the time stated (usually 15 minutes before the advertised off time of the race).

If a Special Day of Race Price is laid inadvertently after this time it will stand if there has not been a show transmitted from the course. All Special Day of Race Prices are subject to fluctuation and therefore prices offered may differ from those originally displayed on the Sportingbet website or published in the press.

Should a Horse be withdrawn not under orders in a Special Day of Race race, stakes on that selection will be returned with bets on other runners in the race subject to a Rule 4 based on the price of the withdrawn horse at the time the bet was placed.

Favourite Betting

Bets nominating the favourite are acceptable where available on certain horse or greyhound races at SP only.

The favourite is the selection returned at the shortest odds. When the favourite is nominated and two or more runners start at the shortest odds, then stakes are equally divided over the joint favourites. For example, where two are returned at the shortest odds, then these two are joint first and second favourites and the next shortest price runner is the third favourite.

Bets will be void on single favourite bets where the return, regardless of the result, is less than the original stake (including any deductions). This would occur, for example, if there were 3/1 co-favourites of four. On horse racing, bets are accepted for first favourite and Win only. We do not accept bets on second or third favourite.

Horse Racing Outside The UK

In countries where there is no SP market in operation, bets may be accepted at Pari-Mutuel returns for the following, where stated.

Win and Each Way

Horses in the same ownership are generally coupled in the 'Win pool' only. However in some countries (e.g. the USA) horses are coupled in all pools and coupling may occur for reasons other than ownership. The place part of Each Way bets will be settled in accordance with the returned place dividends.

Named Selections

Where a bet is offered for more than one named selection to win at a special combined price, the price is subject to fluctuation as are all Special Day of Race Prices.

Rule 4 may be applied to all Special bets if there are any Non-Runners in the races concerned.

If any of the named selections are Non-Runners or the race is declared void, the bet reduces to the next level multiple at SP. For example, if a Special Treble contains a Non-Runner the bet reverts to an SP double etc.

Named Jockey's Mounts

Winning bets must predict whether the named jockey will ride multiple winners.

In the event of the named jockey not riding a published mount for any reason, that leg of the multiple will be disregarded and the bet will be settled as the next lowest multiple on the remaining legs at SP. For example a treble will become a double.

If there is a Non-Runner that is not the Jockey's Mount in any leg then Rule 4 will be applied with the Special Price subject to a reduction and bets will be settled at the new price. If, in the above instances where the jockey's mount is offered 'Place Only' in any leg, that leg will be settled for a Place at the appropriate Starting Price place terms.

How Many...? Bets

Winning bets must predict how many of the specified eventualities will occur such as 'How many favourites will win at Ascot?'.

In the event of any races not being run for whatever reason all bets will be void.

Jockey Challenge

Winning bets must predict which of the nominated jockeys will ride the most winners at a specified meeting or meetings.

Dead Heat rules will apply where challenges are offered between three or more jockeys. In a two-jockey challenge a price will be offered for the 'Tie'.

If for any reason a nominated jockey does not ride his intended mount in a race, but the horse still runs, the horse still counts for settlement as if it had been ridden by the 'intended' jockey.

The intended mount will be taken to be the horses published in the Racing Post on the day of the race, to be ridden by the jockey concerned. If the jockey rides any horse which, according to the day's Racing Post he was not scheduled to ride, that ride does not count towards the challenge.

Jockey Performance

Winning bets must predict the level of jockey performance based on a defined points' scoring system.

25 points are awarded for a winner, 10 points for a runner up and 5 points for a third. Dead Heat rules apply, so if a jockey's mount dead heats for first 17.5 points are awarded (i.e. 25 points+10 points divided by 2).

Markets may take two forms based on the scoring system.

Points' Bands - for example, A P McCoy may be offered at 5/1 to score between 35-40 points at Cheltenham.
Over/Under - for example, Frankie Dettori may be offered at 6/4 to score under 40 points at Ascot.

If for any reason the jockey on whom the bet was made does not ride his intended mount in a race, but the horse still runs, then for settlement purposes the horse still counts as if it had been ridden by the 'intended' jockey.

The intended mounts will be taken to be the horses published in the Racing Post on the day of the race, to be ridden by the jockey concerned. If the jockey rides any horse which, according to the day's Racing Post he was not scheduled to ride, that ride does not count for the purposes of performance bets on that jockey.

If the jockey has a Non-Runner then, if no betting show has been passed by SIS, the SP forecast for that horse given by the Racing Post will be determine how points are awarded:

Equal to or greater than 5/1 = 5 points
Less than 5/1 but greater than Evens = 10 points
Evens or less = 15 points

If a betting show has been passed by SIS, then points will be awarded as above according to the horse's price at the time of withdrawal. If a race is declared void the jockey's mount will be considered a Non-Runner. If a jockey's mount is made a walkover by way of others withdrawing, 20 points will be awarded to the total. If no price is available for a points' total then Dead Heat rules apply.

Top Jockey at a Festival

Winning bets must predict who will be the jockey riding the most winners over the course of a meeting or festival.
For the purposes of this bet, bets are accepted 'All In, Run or Not'. For settlement purposes the result will be determined by who lifts the trophy at the end of the festival and will not be affected by any subsequent enquiries, disqualifications or alterations.

Meeting Favourites' Challenge

Winning bets must predict which of the two nominated meetings will have the most winning favourites.
Dead Heat rules apply for Favourites' Challenges where three or more meetings are nominated. Where only two meetings are nominated a price will offered for the 'Tie'.

If there are joint or co-favourites in a race, the horse with the lowest race card number is considered for the purposes of the bet to be the favourite.

In the event of no SP being returned, the favourite will be deemed to be the shortest price horse in the Racing Post betting forecast to come under starter's orders. If the returned favourite (as published in the following day's Racing Post) does not come under starter's orders then, for the purposes of the bet it is considered to be a runner.

Favourites Performance

Winning bets must predict the level of favourites' performance based on a defined points' scoring system.

25 points are awarded for a winner, 10 points for a runner-up and 5 points for a third. Dead Heat rules apply so if a trainer's horse dead-heats for first 17.5 points are awarded (i.e. 25 points + 10 points divided by 2).
Markets may take two forms based on the scoring system.

Points' Bands - for example, Favourites may be offered at 5/1 to score between 65-70 points at Cheltenham.
Over/Under - for example, Favourites may be offered at 10/11 score under 65 points at Cheltenham.

If there are joint or co-favourites in a race, the horse with the lowest race card number is considered for the purposes of the bet to be the favourite. If the returned favourite (as published in the following day's Racing Post) has not come 'under starter's orders' then, for the purposes of the bet, points will be awarded as follows based on its price at the time of withdrawal:

Equal to or greater than 5/1 = 5 points
Less than 5/1 but greater than Evens = 10 points
Evens or less = 15 points

In the event of no SP being returned the favourite will be deemed to be the shortest price horse in the Racing Post betting forecast to come 'under starter's orders'. If a race is declared void the favourite will be considered a Non-Runner. If a horse race is made a walkover by way of horses withdrawing, 20 points will be awarded to the total.
If no price is available for a points' total then Dead Heat rules apply.

Horse Race Match Betting

Winning bets must predict which named horse will achieve the best finishing position. Bets are settled on the Official Result (not "First Past The Post"). If both horses finish in the same position bets are void. If either horse is a Non Runner bets are void. In National Hunt ("Jumps") Races a horse must complete the Race to win the Matchbet (unless otherwise stated).

Aggregate Distances

Winning bets must predict the aggregate winning distances at a specified meeting or meetings.

The maximum winning distance will be 12 lengths for Flat races and 30 lengths for National Hunt races. In the case of a horse finishing alone or winning by a 'Distance' the distance will be settled as 12 lengths for a Flat race and 30 lengths in a National Hunt race.

For distances below a length the following distances will be applied:

Short head = 0.1 of a length
Head = 0.2 of a length
Neck = 0.3 of a length
Half a length = 0.5 of a length
Three quarters of a length = 0.75 of a length

If no official winning distance is declared Sportingbet will use all available evidence to determine the distance.
No account shall be taken of any subsequent disqualification, enquiry or amendment, unless the official distance is amended by the judge on the day of the race. If a race is declared void distances will 2 lengths for Flat races and 10 lengths for National Hunt races.

If a race is made a walkover by horses withdrawing after the market is made, distances will be 5 lengths for a Flat race or 12 lengths for National Hunt races.

If no distance total is quoted then Dead Heat rules apply.

Winning Distances for Selected Horses

Winning bets must predict the winning distance of a selected horse.

Markets may take two forms based on the scoring system.

Points Bands - for example, Black Jack Ketchum may be offered at 6/1 to win by between 0-2 lengths.

Over/Under - for example, Black Jack Ketchum may be offered at 9/4 to win by under 4 lengths.

If the market is opened before the day of the event and the selection does not run then all bets will be losers, unless otherwise stated.

In the event of non runner(s) resulting in a Rule 4 deduction of 15p in £ or more on early prices, unless specified otherwise, all bets will be void.

Owners Or Trainers Runners

Winning bets must predict the level of performance exhibited by a specified trainer or owner.

Markets may take two forms based on the scoring system.

Points' Bands - for example, Aidan O'Brien may be offered at 3/1 to score between 35-40 points.

Over/Under - for example, Paul Nicholls may be offered at 4/1 to score under 40 points.

In the event of an Owner/Trainer having more than one runner in the race, the selected mount for the purposes of this bet is the horse starting at the lowest price. If two or more mounts start at the same price, stakes will be equally divided between the two horses.

That day's Racing Post will determine the Owner/Trainer of a horse. When long-term markets are offered for a selected Owner or Trainer to own or train the winner of a nominated horse race, it is the 'actual' owner and trainer according to the Racing Post on the day of the event that counts.

Ante Post Rules apply unless otherwise stated.

Partially Abandoned Meetings

When a race meeting is abandoned before it is completed the following rules apply to bets placed on markets involving Points' Bands.

If the performance total at the time of abandonment falls in the bottom band (e.g. 'Under 12 lengths' or 'Under 50' for performance), all bets in that market are made void if the result could still have totalled any of the bands originally offered.

If an abandoned meeting could not have made up in one or more bands, bets placed in those bands are settled as losers, and bets placed in the possible bands are settled as joint winners and are subject to Dead Heat rules dependent on the number of possible winning bands.

If there is only one possible winning band then that is settled as an outright winner. If the performance total at the time of abandonment falls in a middle band (e.g. '12-15 lengths' or '50-65 for performance') all bets in lower bands are settled as losers. Bets placed in that middle and higher bands are settled as joint winners and are subject to Dead Heat rules.
Bets that cannot mathematically win at this point will be settled as losers. If the performance total at time of abandonment falls in the top band (e.g. 'Over 15 lengths' or 'Over 65 for performance') all bets are settled with this band as the winner and the others as losers, as the result has effectively been determined.

Reserve Runners - Greyhounds

All bets that are placed at SP are considered to be on the trap number and not the named greyhound. Bets placed at SP on the trap number are valid regardless of whether a reserve dog runs from this trap. Bets placed at a price within 10 minutes of the Race starting (ie bets placed on the “SIS Betting Show”) are subject to the same Rule. All other bets at a price (struck more than 10 minutes before the Race Off Time) are considered to be on the named greyhound and in the event of a reserve running will be made void.

The Quarter must be completed for bets to stand. Bets will be void (no action) if the Quarter is not completed.

Quarter Points

Winning bets must predict the total number of points scored in the Quarter.

Next Play

Winning bets must predict whether the next play is a 'Run', 'Complete Pass' or 'Incomplete Pass'.

If a penalty occurs on the play, all bets are void (no action) unless the penalty yardage is assessed after the original yardage of the play stands or it is a dead-ball penalty.

If an offensive team 'quick-kicks' the ball, all bets on Next Play will be void (no action).

A 'Run' for betting purposes is defined as any attempt by an offensive player to gain or lose yardage by a handoff or unassisted running play as per the following examples:

a) Any handoff or handoffs by any offensive player in which a legal forward pass is not attempted;

b) Any fumble by an offensive player, regardless of who recovers the ball in which a legal forward pass is not attempted, including the quarterback being sacked or a fumbled snap;

c) An offensive player who throws a lateral (as ruled by an official) in which the lateral (as ruled by an official) in which the lateral is recovered or not, and a legal forward pass is not attempted;

d) A quarterback sack, sneak or going to a knee;

e) An offensive player taking an intentional safety.

A pass for betting purposes is defined as any offensive player who throws or attempts to throw a legal forward pass in the following examples.

a) If a player is sacked by the defense and losses the ball whilst attempting, in the official's eyes, to throw a pass, this is an 'Incomplete Pass'.

b) A shuttle pass (complete or incomplete) will be ruled as a pass.

c) If the offensive player is called for an intentional grounding, this is an 'Incomplete Pass'.

The Next Play bet may be offered on occasion with five possible outcomes: 'Run', 'Pass Complete', 'Pass Incomplete', 'Sack' and 'No Play'. 'No Play' comprises of any penalty accepted where the result of the play does not count. Sack is classified as a defensive player tackle of the quarterback attempting to pass the ball behind the line of scrimmage.

First Down Next Play

Winning bets must predict whether the team with possession will achieve a first down in the play.

An offensive touchdown will be settled as a first down. A first down will not be settled when a player gains the necessary yardage for a first down, then fumbles, with the opposing team recovering the fumble. It will be settled as 'No First Down'.

If the offensive team fumbles the ball and the defensive team recovers the fumble, but in turn fumbles the ball back to the original offensive team all in the same play, due to change of possession on the play no first down has been achieved.

In no way can a defensive team be awarded a first down. Any penalty resulting in the offensive team being given a first down will be awarded as such.

Any offensive play negated by a penalty will be considered a 'No Play' and bets made void (no action).

Plays to 1st Down

Winning bets must predict the number of plays before the next first down is achieved.

If there is a penalty on a play that is accepted, the play will considered a 'No Play' and the play will not count towards the total. This includes a penalty on a play that would give the offensive team an automatic first down - this play does not count and the bet will settled as of the last completed down played.

For example, if it is '1st and 10' and the defense causes a penalty that gives the offensive team a first down then 'No 1st Down' will be settled as the winner.

Drive Result

Winning bets must predict the outcome of a drive by the offensive team with possession.

For the purposes this bet 'Others' comprises turnovers, turnovers on downs, end of half or game, muffed punt and safety.

Make Field Goal

Winning bets must predict whether the player attempting a field goal is successful or not. This bet is only valid on a field goal attempt where the ball is actually kicked. Fake field goals, bad snaps, penalties or other plays that do not result in an attempted field goal will be deemed void (no action).

Punt Result

Winning bets must predict the outcome of a punt by the team with possession.

If the ball is not punted because of a bad snap, a deliberate fake punt or a penalty that nullifies the punt, the bet will be void (no action).
A 'Fair Catch' must be signalled as such and the catch made. A 'Run' is any attempt to return the ball in the hands of the team receiving the punt and also includes an on-side kick. 'OOB' (out of bounds) is classified as any area where the ball crosses outside of the sidelines of the field of play. 'Downed' is classified if the ball ceases to move on its own or is downed by the kicking team touching the ball before the receiving team. 'Blocked' is classified if the receiving team succeeds in blocking the punt and the ball is touched behind the line of scrimmage.

If the kicked ball, despite being touched by the receiving team, nonetheless crosses the line of scrimmage on its own impetus, it is considered to have been partially blocked and the same rules apply as if it had not been blocked.

Kickoff Result

Winning bets must predict the outcome of the kickoff.

If a ball is not kicked off because of a penalty that nullifies the play, the bet will be void (no action). A 'Touchback' will only occur if it is awarded as such by the officials. 'OOB' is classified as any area where the ball crosses outside of the sidelines of the field of play.

Buying and Selling Lines

Buying or selling points allows you the ability to change the Handicap (point spread or side) or Total Points value for a game.
Customers can move the Handicap (point spread or side) so that they receive more points if they are betting on the underdog or giveaway less points if they are betting on the favourite.

For each half-point that they change the Handicap (point spread or side) value, they will need to deduct an amount off the price offered. On the other hand, the price will be greater for giving up extra half points.

Teasers

A Teaser is a selection of two or more teams in one bet in which the Handicap (point spread or side) or Total Points is adjusted in favour of the bettor.

Customers can make selections from both American Football and Basketball. The number of teams selected and the size of the adjusted points values determines the payout odds. A Tie (no action) and a Win on a two-team teaser shall be a void (no action). A Tie (no action) and a Loss on a two-team teaser shall be a losing bet. Ties on a three-or-more team teaser shall revert to the next lowest betting bracket. For example, any Tie in a three-team teaser will mean that the bet becomes a two-team teaser.

The Teaser payout table is as follows:

Basketball 4 Points 4.5 Points 5 Points
2 Teams - 110 -120 -130
3 Teams + 180 +160 +120
