Sportsbook Rules and Regulations

Part A - Introduction

  1. Use and interpretation

    The Betfair Sportsbook Rules and Regulations ("Sportsbook Rules") are part of Betfair’s terms and conditions.

    The Sportsbook Rules apply in relation to the markets offered and bets placed on the Betfair Sportsbook and on Betfair’s ‘Fixed Odds’ and ‘Multiples’ products (although they do not apply in relation to any bets placed on Exchange Multiples, Australian Multis, Tote Extra and Tote & Exotics markets). The Sportsbook Rules do not apply to markets offered or bets placed on the Betfair Exchange.

    The Sportsbook Rules consist of the following:

    • This Introduction section (Part A);
    • The General Rules (set out in Part B below); and
    • The Specific Sports Rules (set out in Part C below – these apply to certain sports and to financial markets).

    The General Rules apply to all bets on the aforementioned products unless stated otherwise in the Specific Sports Rules. If there is any inconsistency between the Specific Sports Rules and the General Rules, the Specific Sports Rules shall prevail. The General Rules will apply in respect of any category of bets or markets not referred to in the Specific Sports Rules (for example, special bets or beach volleyball).

    Please note that there are separate Rules and Regulations for each of our Exchange and Sportsbook products. The rules governing how markets are offered, managed and/or settled are not the same for every market on each product. In certain circumstances, a bet that is settled as a winner on one product may be settled as a loser on the other product (and vice versa). Additionally, different settlement rules may apply so that, for example, bets that are a winner on one product may be settled as a dead heat or be voided on the other product. Customers must ensure that they familiarise themselves with the relevant rules that apply to the bets that they place on Betfair’s products.

  2. Customer responsibility

    Betfair customers should make themselves aware of all of the Sportsbook Rules affecting any market on which they wish to place a bet.

  3. Customer betting disputes & IBAS

    Any Betfair customer who has any concerns or questions regarding the Sportsbook Rules or regarding the settlement of any Betfair market should contact Betfair via email at support.en@betfair.com or via the relevant country-specific Helpdesk email address or telephone number.

    If a customer is not satisfied with how a bet or a market has been settled then the customer should provide details of their grievance to Betfair via email at support.en@betfair.com or via the relevant country-specific Helpdesk email address or telephone number. Betfair shall use its reasonable endeavours to respond to queries of this nature within a few days (but intends in any event to respond to all such queries within 14 days of receipt).

    When a customer has exhausted the internal Betfair betting dispute process without a satisfactory outcome, they may submit their betting dispute to IBAS, the Independent Betting Adjudication Service, or to such other independent betting adjudication service that Betfair may recognise from time to time.

Part B - General Rules

  1. In-Play betting

    1. 1.1General

      • For everything other than horseracing and greyhound racing, if a market is not scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at the relevant time, then:
        • if the event has a scheduled 'off' time, all bets matched after that scheduled off time will be void; and
        • if the event does not have a scheduled 'off' time, Betfair will use its reasonable endeavours to ascertain the time of the actual 'off' and all bets after the time of the 'off' determined by Betfair will be void.
      • For horseracing and greyhound racing, if a market is not scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at the relevant time, then all bets matched after the official 'off' time will be void.
      • Betfair aims to use its reasonable endeavours to suspend in-play markets at the start of and at the end of the event. However, Betfair does not guarantee that such markets will be suspended at the relevant time.
      • Betfair reserves the right at its absolute discretion to part-suspend or fully suspend outcomes/selections in a Sportsbook or Fixed Odds market that has been turned in-play.
      • Betfair customers are responsible for managing their in-play bets at all times.
      • The availability of an in-play market on our Exchange product for a particular event does not necessarily mean that there will be an equivalent in-play market for the same event on our Sportsbook or Fixed Odds product.
      • For the purposes of in-play betting, customers should be aware that transmissions described as “live” by some broadcasters may actually be delayed or pre-recorded. The extent of any delay may vary depending on the set-up through which they are receiving pictures or data. Please also be aware that, for operational reasons, bet requests made in-play may take slightly longer to process.
    2. 1.2All markets other than soccer markets - not suspending at the time of the 'off'

      • In relation to markets which are scheduled to be turned in-play, Betfair aims to use its reasonable endeavours to turn such markets in-play at the time of the 'off'. However, Betfair does not guarantee that such markets will be suspended and turned in-play at the time of the 'off'.
      • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at the time of the 'off' and the market is not turned in-play at any time during the event, all bets after the scheduled time of the 'off' will be void (in the case of horseracing and greyhound racing, bets will be void from the official rather than the scheduled 'off' time) UNLESS it can be established that the bet was placed before the official off time or the actual time of the off. If the event does not have a scheduled 'off' time, Betfair will use its reasonable endeavours to ascertain the time of the actual 'off' and all bets after the time of the 'off' determined by Betfair will be void.
      • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at the time of the 'off', but the market is turned in-play at a later time during the event, all bets after the time of the 'off' will stand. HOWEVER the price may be adjusted by Betfair and the bets may be settled in accordance with the correct price at the time on which the relevant bet was placed (such price to be determined by Betfair, acting reasonably).
    3. 1.3Soccer markets - not suspending at kick-off

      • In relation to soccer markets that are scheduled to be turned in-play, Betfair aims to use its reasonable endeavours to turn such markets in-play at kick-off and to suspend such markets on the occurrence of a Material Event (see definition of "Material Event" below). However, Betfair does not guarantee that markets will be suspended and turned in-play at kick-off.
      • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at kick-off and the market is not turned in-play at any time during the match, all bets matched after the scheduled time of the kick-off will be void UNLESS it can be established that the bet was actually placed before the actual time of kick-off.
      • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at kick-off, but the market is turned in-play at a later time during the match, all bets matched after the scheduled time of the kick-off will stand. HOWEVER the price may be adjusted by Betfair and the bets may be settled in accordance with the correct price at the time on which the relevant bet was placed (such price to be determined by Betfair, acting reasonably).
      • For the purpose of this rule, a "Material Event" shall mean a goal being scored, a penalty being awarded or a player being sent off.
  2. Results and market settlement

    1. 2.1General

      • Where the Specific Sports Rules do not specify how and on what basis a market will be settled, markets will be settled on the official result of the relevant governing body regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result (except if an amendment is announced within 24 hours of the initial settlement of the relevant market in order to correct an error in reporting the result).
      • If no official result of a relevant governing body is available, the result will be determined by Betfair (acting reasonably) using information from independent sources. In such cases, if any new information comes into the public domain within 48 hours of settlement, then Betfair shall (acting reasonably) determine either:
        1. whether the market should be reinstated or resettled in light of this new information; or
        2. whether or not to wait for further information before deciding whether to reinstate or resettle the market. Except where Betfair has announced that it is waiting for further information, any information that comes into the public domain more than 48 hours after a market has been settled shall not be considered by Betfair (regardless of whether or not such information may have led to a different result).
      • In the event of any uncertainty about any result or potential result, Betfair reserves the right to suspend settlement of any market for an unlimited period until the uncertainty can be resolved to the reasonable satisfaction of Betfair. Betfair reserves the right to void any market if the uncertainty regarding settlement cannot be resolved to Betfair’s reasonable satisfaction.
    2. 2.2Resettlements

      • Markets are generally settled shortly after the end of the event in question. Betfair may settle (or part-settle) some markets before the official result is declared (or may increase a customer’s ‘available to bet’ balance by the minimum potential winnings of that customer on a given market) purely as a customer service benefit. However, Betfair reserves the right to amend the settlement of the market if:
        1. the official result is different to the result on which Betfair initially settled the market (for example, a horseracing result being changed by the relevant governing body shortly after a race); or
        2. if the whole market is eventually voided (e.g. for an abandoned event).
      • Betfair reserves the right to reverse the settlement of a market if a market is settled in error (for example, a human or technical error).
      • If Betfair resettles a market, this may lead to amendments being made to a customer's balance to reflect changes in market settlement.
    3. 2.3Non Runners

      • Unless stated otherwise, sports bets are accepted on a “non-runner, no bet” basis (unless stated otherwise). This means that stakes will be refunded on a player, team or other competitor that is withdrawn prior to the start of an event. If you have placed a bet on a sporting event run on a “non-runner, no bet” basis and a player, team or other competitor (on which you did not place your bet) is withdrawn, suspended or disqualified from that event, we may apply the equivalent to Tattersalls' Rule 4(c) to your winnings (based on the price of the player, team or other competitor that is withdrawn).
      • Where specified, certain markets will be offered on an “all-in compete or not” basis. This means that, if a player, team or other competitor is withdrawn from an event (whether he, she or it pulls out of the event, is suspended or disqualified from it or otherwise) before he, she or it has taken part in the event, then any bet placed on that player, team or competitor (as applicable) will be deemed a losing bet.
      • If an event is specified as “fixed draw” and a team, player or other competitor is withdrawn, suspended or disqualified from that event, we reserve the right to settle any bets on the subsequent prices once the market has been revised without the withdrawn team/player.
      • If a player, team or other competitor has taken any part in a sporting event once it has officially started and then fails to complete that event for any reason, any bet placed on that player, team or other competitor will be deemed live (i.e. bets on that player, team or other competitor will not be voided).
  3. Abandonments, Cancellations, Postponements

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, where a market has no rules in the Specific Sports Rules in relation to an abandonment, cancellation and/or postponement the following shall apply.
    • In relation to any match, fixture, game, individual event, race or similar: If the event is not completed within three days after the scheduled completion date, then all bets on markets for this event will be void, except for bets on any markets that have been unconditionally determined.
    • In relation to any tournament, competition or similar: If the event is not completed within 24 hours following the scheduled completion date of the event, then any markets relating to the event will be settled in accordance with the official ruling of the relevant governing body, providing such a decision is given within 90 days after the scheduled completion date. If no official ruling is announced in this 90 day period, then bets on any market relating to this event will be void, except for bets on any markets which have been unconditionally determined. If a market is to be voided but has been part-settled as a courtesy to Betfair customers, then such part-settled bets will be reversed and all bets on the market will be void.
    • If there is no further sporting action in any market that does not contain the selection ‘draw’ or ‘tie’, all bets placed after this conclusion of action will be voided.
    • Betfair will decide (acting reasonably) whether a market relates to a match (or similar) or a tournament (or similar). However, by way of example, the following shall apply:
      1. Europa League outright = tournament;
      2. Champions League Group outright = tournament;
      3. Top Premiership goalscorer = tournament;
      4. 72-hole Golf Match bet = match;
      5. Ryder Cup outright = tournament;
      6. Golf tournament outright = tournament;
      7. Tennis Tournament outright = tournament;
      8. 5-day Cricket Test Match = match;
      9. Ashes Series outright winner = tournament;
      10. Motor Race (e.g. Grand Prix) = match.
  4. Change of venue

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if change of venue is not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules then the following shall apply:
    • For any team sport: if the scheduled venue is changed after a bet is placed, all bets will be void only if the new venue is a home ground of the original away team (or in the case of international matches, only if the venue changes to a venue in a different country).
    • For all categories or markets other than team sports: if the scheduled venue is changed after a bet is placed, all bets will stand.
    • If there is a change in the type of scheduled surface (e.g. a hockey match switching from grass to astro-turf) after a bet is placed, all bets will stand.
  5. Periods of time

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules then the following shall apply.
    • If the scheduled duration of an event is changed after a bet is placed but before the start of the event, then all bets will be void.
    • Some markets refer to the length of time until an occurrence in the event (e.g. time of first goal). If an event happens in stoppage or injury time after any regular time period then it will be deemed to have occurred at the end of the regular time period. For example, if a goal is scored in first half stoppage-time in a soccer match it will be deemed to have occurred on 45 minutes.
    • All bets apply to the relevant full ‘regular time’ period including stoppage time. Any extra-time and/or penalty shoot-out is not included.
    • References within these Rules and Regulations to a particular number of ‘days’ shall mean the end of the day local time after the expiry of the specified number of days. For example, if a rugby match is scheduled for the 1st of December, then the rule that allows the match to be completed within three days after the scheduled completion date (see Paragraph 3 above) would mean that the deadline for completion of that match would be 23.59:59 on the 4th of December.
  6. "To qualify" markets

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules then the following shall apply.
    • Any 'to qualify' market (e.g. "to reach the final" markets) will be determined by the competitor or team that progresses, whether or not they take part in the next round or event for which they have qualified. Markets will be settled after the qualifying stage and any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result will not count.
  7. Dead heats

    • Unless stated otherwise in the Specific Sports Rules the Dead Heat Rule applies to bets on a market where there are more winners than expected.
    • Dead heat is a term that describes when two or more selections in an event tie. If a “dead-heat” between two selections is declared on any event, half the stake is applied to the selection at full odds and the other half is lost. If more than two “dead-heats” are declared, the stake is proportioned accordingly.
  8. Errors

    • Betfair makes every effort to ensure that it does not make any errors when accepting bets. However, if as a result of technical or system problems or human error, a bet is accepted that is at odds (which includes handicap provisions or similar) and/or is on terms that are either:
      1. materially different from those available in the general betting market at the time the bet was made; or
      2. clearly incorrect given the chance of the event occurring at the time the bet was made including, in either case, because the bet was placed after the start of an event, because the market was not displaying or reflecting in-play status, or because of any other reason, then all bets will stand HOWEVER Betfair will settle winning bets at the ‘correct price’.
    • The ‘correct price’ will be determined by Betfair (acting reasonably).
  9. Maximum winnings

    • For all events listed below, the maximum payout limits apply on a per day basis. If you place a bet that exceeds the applicable limits for a particular event, the relevant maximum payouts will still apply.
    • The maximum payout limits refer to the total returns on your bets, excluding your original stake.
    • The maximum payout limits apply to any one customer or group of customers acting together, backing the same combination of selections, regardless of whether or not such bets are struck separately, at a range of different prices, on different days and through a number of different accounts. If Betfair believes that a number of bets have been placed in this way, the total payment of all those bets combined will be limited to one single maximum payout.
    • The maximum payouts shown below are shown in sterling. If bets are placed in another currency, the maximum payout will be converted using the applicable exchange rate on the day of settlement of the bets.
    • The maximum payout for bonus payouts such as ‘Lucky 15s’ and ‘Best Odds Guaranteed’ is £50,000 per day.
    • The following maximum payout limits will apply to the events shown (please note, if a multiple bet has been placed which involves events with different maximum payout limits, the lowest applicable maximum payout limit will apply to the whole of your multiple bet – for example, if you place a multiple bet on English Premier League football matches and on a golf tournament, your winnings will be capped at £100,000 and not £1,000,000):

If you place winning bets on those products that exceed this daily limit, your winnings will be reduced to £1,000,000 and the remainder of your winnings in excess of £1,000,000 will be forfeited by you.
  11. Multiples

    • Betfair currently offers two types of multiples bets, ‘Exchange Multiples’ and ‘Fixed Odds Multiples’. These Sportsbook Rules only apply to Betfair’s ‘Fixed Odds Multiples’. To see the rules that apply to ‘Exchange Multiples’ please see the Multiples section of the Exchange Rules and Regulations.
    • A multiple bet consists of a number of legs. A leg is defined as one or more chosen selections in any individual event market.
    • Betfair reserves the right in its sole discretion not to accept certain multiple bets or to scale back stakes.
    • All multiple bets placed are subject to the Sportsbook Rules that apply to each individual sport that relates to any leg of any multiple bet.
    • If any selection in any leg is a non-runner or otherwise void under the Sportsbook Rules (e.g. an abandoned match) then all bets on that individual leg will be void and the Fixed Odds Multiple bet shall be adjusted accordingly. For example a treble including one void leg will become a double. If that voided legs mean that an individual bet within a multiple becomes a single bet, then this single bet will stand.
    • Multiple bets combining different selections within the same event are not accepted when there are related contingencies (i.e. where the outcome of one event is likely to affect the odds on the outcome of another event). The rejection of related contingency bets may happen automatically at the bet placement stage. However, if such a bet is taken in error, Betfair may settle the individual bet combinations which include two or more of the related contingency selections, as single bets.
    • o ‘Lucky 15/31/63’ bet types - this multiple bet includes singles and upwards on 4, 5 or 6 selections respectively.

  13. Cash Out

    • Cash Out is a feature which is offered on various singles and multiples Sportsbook bets. Cash Out allows you to amend your original bet and lock in a profit or a loss by settling your bet (or a portion of your bet) early, without having to wait for the event to finish.
    • If you make a Cash Out request, you will be notified whether or not your request has been successful. Your request to Cash Out is not guaranteed to be accepted and may be unsuccessful if, for example, the market suspends or the odds move before your request has been processed.
    • If your Cash Out request is successful, a ‘success’ message will be shown and your bet (or the relevant portion of your bet) will be settled immediately and any winnings returned to your account equal to the amount shown on the Cash Out button. Note that this includes the original stake (or portion of your stake) and the total amount returned to your account will be the amount shown on the Cash Out button. The For a full Cash Out, the bet is settled and any subsequent events will have no impact on the amount returned to your account. For a partial Cash Out, part of your bet is settled and any subsequent events will only impact on the portion of your bet which you have not Cashed Out.
    • If your Cash Out request is unsuccessful, a message will be shown which gives the reason why and a new Cash Out offer may be offered to you.
    • Cash Out requests made in-play may take longer to process because of the in-play bet delay.
    • Cash Out is not currently available on all Betfair markets - a Cash Out icon will be displayed for the markets that support Cash Out. See the Help page for more details on when Cash Out may not be available.
    • Using Cash Out may mean you will opt out of and no longer be eligible for a particular promotion (e.g. Acca Insurance). See the terms and conditions of the promotion for further details.
    • Betfair reserves the right to reverse the settlement of a Cash Out if the bet or a market is settled in error (for example, a human or technical error). If Betfair resettles a bet, this may lead to amendments being made to a customer's balance to reflect changes in bet settlement.
    • Betfair reserve the right to suspend or disable the Cash Out feature at any time.
  14. Edge

      14.1 Acca Edge

      • Applies to Sportsbook (fixed odds) accumulator bets only.

      • Acca Edge must be ticked at the time of bet placement and you must receive confirmation from Betfair that it has been ‘applied’.
      • You acknowledge that the odds with Acca Edge may be different from the odds of the bet without Acca Edge.
      • Acca Edge will become void if any leg is settled void or any leg is subject to a Dead Heat Reduction. In such circumstances the bet will revert to a normal accumulator bet without the Acca Edge and be priced based on the original leg prices taken at bet placement.
      • Bets placed with Acca Edge are available for Cash Out, however any Cash Out (partial or full) will render Acca Edge void.
      • Betfair reserves the right to suspend or disable the Acca Edge feature at any time.

      • Bets placed with Each Way Edge are eligible for Cash Out if the Cash Out icon is shown, subject to the standard Cash Out terms.
      • If the number of non-runners results in a change in the standard each way terms, then the terms of the Each Way Edge bet will also be altered to reflect this. In summary:.
        • An EW Edge bet is an offset to normal EW terms, so if the EW terms on the market change after a withdrawal, the EW Edge terms can change too.
          • E.g. if there is a market with 3 places @ 1/5 and EW Edge is used to take 4 places. If the market changes to 2 places @ 1/4 after a withdrawal, the EW Edge bet has terms of 3 places @ 1/4
        • If the market place fraction changes (e.g. market changes from 3 @ 1/4 to 3 @ 1/5) then the fraction changes for EW Edge bets too
        • If an EW Edge bet reverts to Win only (e.g. -1 offset on a 3 place market when the market changes to 2 places), the price after EW Edge will still be honoured (but with rule4s applied if relevant).
        • If the market drops to Win only, positive EW Edges are still EW bets.
      • Bets placed with Each Way Edge applied are not eligible for Best Odds Guaranteed.
      • Betfair reserves the right to suspend or disable the Each Way Edge feature at any time.

    17. 14eSports General Rules

      • If an event involves the same two players or teams playing multiple games/maps, E.G. “Best of 3”, and one or more games or maps are not played because the result of the event has already been determined, bets on such games or maps are void.
      • Postponements/Cancellations

      • Dates and start times are shown for info purposes only. Events cancelled, postponed or interrupted and not completed within 48 hours of the originally scheduled start time, bets on that event are void and stakes refunded. However, games or maps that are completed within 48 hours are settled normally even if additional games or maps that were supposed to be part of the same matchup are cancelled or further postponed.
      • Broadcast

      • Bets are settled based on the official broadcast of the game by the publisher or event organiser. Where the broadcast shows a counter of rounds won, kills, dragons, towers etc., this will generally be used to settle relevant bets. If the result of a bet is unclear from the broadcast, or if there is no broadcast, then the statistics API for the game will be used where available.
      • Indexed Markets

      • In the case of indexed or numbered markets (such as the winner of a specific round in Counter Strike: GO, or the team to score a particular numbered kill in League of Legends or DOTA2), the index determines the objective that counts. Words such as “next” in the market name are not guaranteed to be correct, as broadcasts may be delayed and we may not always advance the index precisely when an objective is scored or a round completed. All bets are therefore settled on the particular numbered round or objective specified, regardless of any other wording in the market name or its timing in relation to when the bet was placed.
      • If the scheduled number of rounds or maps is changed, or if markets are erroneously offered based on a different number of rounds or maps from the actually scheduled number, then bets on the winning margin (including handicap), total rounds / maps, correct scores etc. are void and stakes refunded. Map winner and matchup winner bets stand.
      • o If any map is not played or is awarded to one player or team by walkover or default without play having commenced, all bets on that map and on the matchup as a whole are void and stakes refunded. Bets relating only to maps that are played stand. A map is deemed to have started as soon as the game clock starts or either team or player takes a game action relating to that map, including picks, bans and weapon purchases.
      • League of Legends

      • Towers - all destroyed towers count as having been destroyed by the opposing team even if the last hit was from a minion.
      • Inhibitors - all destroyed inhibitors count as having been destroyed by the opposing team even if the last hit was from a minion. For bets involving the number of inhibitors destroyed, each of the six inhibitors counts only once, even if it is destroyed, respawns and is destroyed again. For bets involving the next inhibitor destroyed, each destruction of an inhibitor counts separately, even where it has respawned and is being destroyed for a second or subsequent time.
      • For bets involving kills (inc “First Blood”, which in League of Legends is synonymous with the first kill on the map), the official broadcast or game API if available is definitive in determining whether the death of a Champion counts as a kill. For example, where a Champion is killed by tower or minion damage without the involvement of an enemy Champion this may not be registered as a kill on the broadcast, in which case it does not count as a kill for bet settlement purposes.
      • For bets involving the next team to score a particular objective or the team to score the most of a particular objective, where a “neither” or “draw” option is offered and is the winning outcome, bets on either team are losers. Where no such selection is offered and neither team is a winner, all bets on the market are void and stakes refunded.
      • Surrenders

      • Where one team surrenders, bets stand and are settled as follows. For bets involving the map winner, the winning team is the team that did not surrender.
      • Bets involving dragons, barons and kills are settled based on the situation at the time the surrender takes place.
      • Bets involving towers and inhibitors are settled as if the winning team had destroyed the minimum number of additional towers and / or inhibitors theoretically required to win the game normally from the position when the surrender occurred. For example, if any inhibitor of the losing team is down at the time of surrender then no additional inhibitor is deemed to have been destroyed. If no inhibitor of the losing team is down then the winning team is deemed to have destroyed one additional inhibitor, with priority given to an inhibitor that has already been destroyed if such an inhibitor exists and has respawned. If the winning team has destroyed all tier 1 towers and one tier 2 tower, then it will be deemed to have destroye three further towers (seven in total), since it would have needed to destroy at least one tier 3 tower and the two nexus towers to have won the game normally from that position.
      • DOTA2

      • Towers - all destroyed towers count as having been destroyed by the opposing team even if the last hit was from a minion.
      • Barracks - all destroyed barracks count as having been destroyed by the opposing team even if the last hit was from a minion. The ranged and melee barracks in each pair count as separate barracks, so that each team has a total of six barracks.
      • Kills (other than “First Blood”) - the official broadcast or game API if available is definitive in determining whether the death of a Champion counts as a kill. E.G. where a Champion is killed by tower or minion damage without the involvement of an enemy Champion this may not be registered as a kill on the broadcast, in which case it does not count as a kill for bet settlement purposes.
      • First Blood - The broadcast or official API score must register the kill as First Blood. Where, for example, a kill is denied by a team-mate, it may not be counted as First Blood (regardless of whether it is registered as a kill on the broadcast kill counter), in which case it will not count as First Blood for bet settlement purposes. For the avoidance of doubt, all kill markets other than “First Blood” are settled based on the kill counter, but a kill that is registered on the kill counter will count as First Blood only if is announced as such.
      • Roshans - the team that scores the last hit on Roshan as determined by the broadcast or game API if available is deemed to have slain Roshan, regardless of the player who picks up the aegis of the immortal.
      • Next team to score a particular objective or the team to score the most of a particular objective - where a “neither” or “draw” option is offered and is the winning outcome, bets on either team are losers. Where no such selection is offered and neither team is a winner, all bets on the market are void and stakes refunded
      • Surrenders

      • Where one team surrenders, bets stand and are settled as follows:
      • For bets involving the map winner, the winning team is the team that did not surrender.
      • Bets involving Roshans, barracks and kills are settled based on the situation at the time the surrender takes place.
      • Bets involving towers are settled as if the winning team had destroyed the minimum number of additional towers theoretically required to win the game normally from the position when the surrender occurred. For example, if the winning team has destroyed all tier 1 towers and one tier 2 tower, then it will be deemed to have destroyed three further towers (seven in total), since it would have needed to destroy at least one tier 3 tower and the two ancient towers to have won the game normally from that position.
      • Counter Strike: GO

      • Most map bets are based on the scheduled number of rounds (usually best of 30) excluding extra rounds played in the event of a draw. If, however, a map winner market is offered without a “draw” selection then this is settled in favour of the overall winner of the map (inc ET if played)
    18. 15Financial Bets

        • ‘FTSE Up/Down 20min’ markets
        – bets will be settled depending on whether or not the FTSE100 finishes ‘Up’, stays the same or finishes ‘Down’ for the relevant period. The market will be settled based on the price change of the FTSE100. The price change will be measured using the first price stamp of the period, and then the first price stamp of the close time of the period, with all price stamps being taken from Bloomberg. For periods ending at the close of the day’s trading, the official closing price will be used and not the first price stamp of the period close time.
        • ‘Interest Rate – MPC’ markets
        – bets will be settled depending on the value of the UK Base Rate (the “Rate”) after the next scheduled Bank of England (MPC) meeting. If a Rate change is announced before the scheduled meeting and the scheduled meeting goes ahead, Betfair will settle this market on what the Rate is immediately after the scheduled meeting. If a Rate change is announced before the scheduled meeting and the scheduled meeting is cancelled (or does not take place at the scheduled time and date), Betfair will void all bets that are matched after the time of the Rate change announcement and will settle this market on the newly announced Rate. If the Rate percentage announced is in any increment other than the standard (i.e. x.00, x.25, x.50 or x.75), Betfair will void this market (for example, 4.33% will result in the market being void).

        • Bets are settled on the best finishing position.
        • For flat racing, if two or more of the named horses do not complete the course, the placing of those horses in relation to each other shall be determined, and bets shall be settled, according to the distance travelled by each horse (according to the official returns in the following day’s Racing Post).
        • For National Hunt races, if two or more of the named horses do not complete the course, the placing of those horses in relation to each other shall be determined, and bets shall be settled, according to the number of obstacles cleared by each horse (according to the official returns in the following day’s Racing Post). If both horses clear the same number of fences/hurdles, bets will be void.

        21.7Place Terms

        • Each-way bets (Win and Place) are offered for the majority of races. For all horse races (at Early Price, Show Price and S.P) the each-way terms are affected by the type of race and the number of runners taking part and these terms are as follows:
          Race Type No. of Runners Place Odds No. Places
          All Races 4 or less Win Only Win Only
          All Races 5-7 1/4 1,2
          Non-Handicaps 8+ 1/5 1,2,3
          Handicaps* 8-11 1/5 1,2,3
          Handicaps* 12-15 1/4 1,2,3
          Handicaps* 16+ 1/4 1,2,3,4

          [* ‘Handicaps’ include all Handicap and Nursery races]


        • The ‘Win’ and ‘Place’ part of each-way multiple bets are settled separately (that is, win-to-win and place-to-place).
        • Once opened, the number of winners in 'to be placed' markets may be affected by further non-runners.
        • If the number of placed horses is less than the number of potential winners, the winners will only be the placed horse or horses.
        • If any race is reduced to four runners or less, all each-way bets will be taken as ‘all-to-win’ given that there are no places.

        21.8Winning Distance Bets

        • Unless stated otherwise, winning distances' bets are on the sum of the winning distances from each race on one particular day at a race meeting.
        • The winning distance in a race will be the officially declared distance between the first two horses past the post. However if either the first or second horse past the post is disqualified because:
          1. of an incorrect weight carried;
          2. they have taken the wrong course;
          3. the jockey of either horse fails to weigh in, or weighs in light after the race; then in each case the winning distance shall be that between the first and second horse under the official result.
        • For the purpose of this bet, the maximum distance on any individual race will be 12 lengths for Flat races and 30 lengths for National Hunt races (which includes National Hunt Flat Races) and these distances will be applied where only one horse finishes a race.
        • For distances below half a length, the following scale will be applied:
          • Nose: 0.05 length
          • Short-head: 0.1
          • Head: 0.2
          • Short-neck: 0.25
          • Neck: 0.3
        • If a meeting has three or more races abandoned or declared void, then all 'winning distance' bets will be void.
        • When only one or two races are abandoned or declared void, then 'winning distance' bets will be settled with a default distance used for each abandoned or void race. The default distances are 2 lengths for Flat races and 10 lengths for National Hunt races.
        • In the case of a walkover the following distances will be applied:
          • Flat: 5 lengths
          • National Hunt: 12 lengths

        21.9Betfair Non-Runner Rule

        • If a horse comes under Starter's Orders but refuses to race, the bet will be a loser.
        • With the exception of ante-post bets as described above, in all horse races where a runner is withdrawn, or adjudged not to have started - and therefore been declared a Non-Runner by the starter - stakes on that selection will be refunded.
        • Bets on the remaining runners in that race, where a price has been taken, may be subject to a deduction. This is based on Tattersalls Rule 4(c) (see below) and is dependent on the withdrawn horse’s price at the time it was withdrawn.
        • Bets on horses in reformed markets that subsequently have one or more withdrawn horses may also have a deduction applied based on the prices of any withdrawn horse(s) at the time of the withdrawal(s).
        • In the event that there is insufficient time to form a new market on the race, bets placed at starting price may also be subject to a deduction based on Tattersalls Rule 4(c).
        • For bets where a price is taken, the application of Rule 4(c) will be determined by the last Betfair price available at the time the relevant horse is withdrawn.
        • Deductions in the pound will be applied based on the odds of any withdrawn horse as follows:
          Price of selection Deduction Price of selection Deduction
          1/9 or shorter 90p 6/5 to Evens 45p
          2/11 to 2/17 85p 6/4 to 5/4 40p
          1/4 to 1/5 80p 7/4 to 13/8 35p
          3/10 to 2/7 75p 9/4 to 15/8 30p
          2/5 to 1/3 70p 3/1 to 5/2 25p
          8/15 to 4/9 65p 4/1 to 10/3 20p
          8/13 to 4/7 60p 11/2 to 9/2 15p
          4/5 to 4/6 55p 9/1 to 6/1 10p
          20/21 to 5/6 50p 14/1 to 10/1 5p
              over 14/1 No deduction
        • If there are two or more withdrawals in one event, the deduction will not exceed 90p. If the price of a withdrawn selection is not quoted in the above table, then Rule 4(c) will be applied at the next highest price quoted. For example 21/5 would be classed in the 9/2 bracket for Rule 4 purposes.
        • Reserves: In races with reserves, reserves will generally be priced up within the market. However if any bets are taken prior to a reserve horse being declared to run and where the reserve was not priced up at the time the bet was placed, then any such bets will be settled on the result 'without the reserve runner(s)'. Each way bets settled on the result "without the reserve runner(s)" will be based on the number of runners, excluding reserves, that start the race. In races where reserves are priced but do not run, Betfair may make a Rule 4 deduction in accordance with the above Betfair Non-Runner Rule.
        • Incorrect withdrawals: If a horse is removed from a market but subsequently takes part in the race, then all bets on that selection will be made void and stakes refunded at the point that the selection was removed from the market. At the point that the horse is re-instated in the market, all original bets will be replaced subject to customers having available funds in their account. If a customer does not have available funds within their account at the time of re-instatement, the voided bet will not be replaced.

        21.10Betting Without the Favourite

        • For the purposes of this bet, the ‘Without” selection(s) will be the shortest price horse(s) as determined by Betfair early prices at the time the market is created.
        • For settlement purposes the “Without” selection’s finishing position will be ignored.
        • The Each-way terms used will be determined as per the industry standard terms based on the actual number of runners that take part in the race, excluding the “Without” selection.
        • In the event of non-runners and withdrawals winning bets are subject to Rule 4 deductions.

        21.11Place only markets

        ‘Place only’ bets will be settled as follows:

        • The number of places paid will be made clear on the market
        • Bets will be settled on the official result only
        • If there are non-runners in the race, then provided there are more runners in the race than the number of places being paid out on the market, then all bets on the remaining runners will stand subject to the deductions below. All bets on non-runners (not under starter’s orders) will be voided.
        • If, due to non-runners, the number of runners is the same as or less than the number of places being paid out on the market, then all bets on the market will be voided.
        • If there are non-runners on the market, then the best on the remaining runners will be settled based on the deductions table below.
        • Deductions are accumulative and so will increase if there is more than one non-runner, but are capped at 95p in the £.

      • If a match starts but is abandoned before its completion, all bets will be void unless an official result is declared by the applicable governing body. Where an official result has been declared by the official governing body, that official result will govern match and handicap market settlement but all other markets will be void unless their result has already been determined at the point of abandonment (i.e. at the point of abandonment, it would not have been possible for the outcome of the bet to change had the match continued to its natural conclusion). By way of example, if 37 points have been scored at the time a match is abandoned: (i) a bet placed on 35 points or more to be scored would be settled as a winning bet, (ii) a bet placed on 30-35 points to be scored would be settled as a losing bet and (iii) a bet placed on 40-45 points to be scored would be void. In such circumstances, bets on last tryscorer / team to score last / team to score last try / last scoring play would all be void.
      • Outright Bets: all bets placed on outright markets will be settled on official tournament results. For betting purposes, any team which has points deducted due to breaches of rules and regulations will be deemed a starter. If, at the time a deduction of points is announced, the loss of points means that only one eventuality can occur then all bets on that competitor are void and monies will be returned. Any bets placed after a points deduction may have prices adjusted accordingly.
      • All outright markets which state “Regular Season” (or similar) are deemed to mean the official standings of teams after all matches of the predetermined season are played and before any playoff matches have commenced.
      • Tournament Tries/Points: Bets will apply to all playing time, including any extra time in any match where an official result is declared.
      • To Miss Top 2 / Top 4 / Top 8: For betting purposes, any team which has points deducted due to breaches of rules and regulations will be deemed a starter.

      • Tryscorers: All bets will be refunded if they were placed on players not included the official match day 22 or 23 (depending on the competition). If a substitute is not on the field before the first try is scored then bets on that player will be void in the ‘First Tryscorer’, ‘First Team Tryscorer’ and ‘First Tryscorer Insurebet’ markets. If a substitute comes on at any stage during the game, they will be considered ‘All In’ for all other tryscorer markets. If they do not take any part in the game, they will be void in all tryscorer markets.
      • First/Last Tryscorer: In the event of a penalty try being the first / last try scored, we will pay out on the penalty try option if offered. If the penalty try option is not offered, we will pay out, for “First Try” markets, on the next tryscorer following the penalty try (where the first try is a penalty try) and, for “Last Try” markets, on the tryscorer immediately preceding the penalty try (where the last try is a penalty try). For ‘xth Tryscorer’ betting, if the penalty try option is not offered, we will pay out on the next tryscorer (e.g. if the first try scored in a match is a penalty try and the second try is scored by Paul Smith, then Paul Smith will be deemed the winner for both the first and second tries). If there is no try scored after the penalty try then “First Try” and “Last Try” markets will be void.
      • First 2nd Half Tryscorer: Bets placed on substitutes will be void if the first 2nd half try is scored before they come on.
      • First Tryscorer Insurebet: If the player fails to score the first try but does score a try in the match then the bet stake will be returned. If a substitute is not on the field before the first try is scored then bets on that player will be void.
      • Position to Score First Try: In the event of a penalty try being the first try scored, we will pay out on the position of the next tryscorer for “Position to Score First Try” markets. For ‘Position to score xth Try’ markets, in the event of a penalty try, we will pay out on the position which scores the next try (e.g. if the first try scored in a match is a penalty try and the second try is scored by a ‘forward’, then a ‘forward’ will be deemed to have scored both the first and second tries). If there is no try scored after the penalty try then this market will be void.
      • To win in Extra Time: If there is no winner following extra time, dead heat rules will apply to bets on this market.
      • Tryscorer Matchbets / Kicker Matchbets / To Score the Most Points Matchbets: Both players must be in the starting 15 for bets to stand. If there is no ‘Tie’ or ‘Draw’ selection offered and the result is a tie then all bets will be void.

      • Unless otherwise stated, all bets on soccer markets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any added injury or stoppage time. However extra-time and penalty shoot-outs are not included. The only exceptions are for: matches that are scheduled for a lesser duration (e.g. 60, 70 or 80) as agreed by the laws of the competition in which they are competing or agreed by both sides prior to kick-off. In such cases, all bets will be settled at the end of the agreed game length which includes time added on by the referee for stoppages whether the game length is advertised by Betfair or not.
      • For ‘Extra-Time’ markets, bets apply to 30 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any added injury or stoppage time. However extra-time and penalty shoot-outs are not included. In ‘Extra-Time’ markets, bets apply to the result during the extra-time period only. For the purposes of this market the score shall be deemed to be 0-0 at the start of the extra-time period.
      • In circumstances where over 90% of the scheduled match time has been completed and the referee ends the match before the allotted time has elapsed then we will use that result for the settlement of all bets placed on the game. Otherwise, if a match starts but is later abandoned or postponed and Betfair believes that the match will not have been completed by 23:59 (local time) on its scheduled start date, then all markets, with the exception of any unconditionally determined markets, will be void unless Betfair has knowledge that the match has been rescheduled to be played within three days of its original start date. If Betfair does have knowledge that the game will be played within three days and the game is played within three days, then all bets will stand except if the match is restarted from the beginning. If the match is restarted from the beginning then all bets matched before the market went in-play will stand, but any bets placed in-play will be void, except for any bets placed in-play on markets which have been unconditionally determined, which will stand.
      • If a match has not started (or if Betfair believes that a match will not have started) by 23:59 (local time) on its scheduled start date, then all bets will be void unless Betfair has knowledge that the match has been rescheduled to be played within three days of its original start date.
      • In the case of ambiguity over the official result from match officials, the outcome will be determined by Betfair (acting reasonably) using information from independent sources.
      • If an official fixture lists different team details to those listed on the Betfair website (for example, the team name, reserves, age group, gender, etc), then all bets matched on the affected markets will be void. In all other cases, bets will stand (including instances where a team name is listed without specifying the term 'XI' in the name).
      • If a team is disqualified, thrown out or otherwise removed from a league before the relevant season has started then all bets involving that team will be made void.

      • For 'time of first goal' bets (i.e. "First Goal Odds" markets), the first half is deemed to last 45 minutes, regardless of stoppage time. Also for these markets, please note that the "0 - 10 Minutes" selection covers the first 10 minutes of the match. In other words, it runs from 0:00 until just before the clock hits 10:00. The "11 – 20 Minutes" selection runs from 10:00 until just before the clock hits 20:00. The same principle applies to each of the other selections in this market.
      • For FIFA Man of the Match markets, the market will be settled based on the official ‘Man of the Match’ as determined by FIFA. If FIFA fail to declare an official Man of the Match for any reason, all bets will be void.
      • For domestic games live on Sky Sports the market will be settled based on who Sky give the award to during their live broadcast. If no award is made during the live broadcast the result will be settled as the player who is listed as the man of the match in the match report on skysports.com. If the result on skysports.com is different from the result of the Sky live broadcast then the markets will be settled on the result from the live broadcast. For live domestic games on BT Sports, BBC and ITV Man of the match bets will also be settled in accordance to who the broadcaster names during the programme. In the case of games on these channels, if no player is named during the programme then all bets will be voided. The player must be specifically named as the man of the match and not just simply referred to as the man of the match by one of the pundits.
      • For matches that are broadcast live on Sky Sports as well as another channel, preference for settlement will be given to Sky Sports unless Betfair have specifically outlined in the naming of the market that the result will be settled on the official tournament or sponsor award.
      • Likewise an official tournament or sponsor award outlined in the naming of the market take precedence over the BT, BBC, and ITV pundit’s award.

      • For First/Last Goalscorer markets:
        • All bets placed on players that do not take part in the match will be void.

      • For all Monthly Premier League Markets:
        • Betfair will use the standard Barclays Premier League competition format adjusted to treat each month as a separate competition beginning the 1st of the relevant month and ending at the final whistle of the final match of that month (“Month End”).
        • On the 1st of every month, each premier league team is deemed to have no points accrued, goals scored or goals conceded

        • Any postponed or rescheduled games will be included in the monthly market in which they are played and not the month in which they were originally scheduled. Bets will not be voided on any selection affected by any postponed or rescheduled games.
        • If the result of an abandoned or forfeited match is determined by the Premier League governing body, Betfair will follow that result provided always that the result is determined before Month End, otherwise Betfair will settle the Monthly Premier League Market based on the result as known at Month End (including by allotted 0 points to both teams if the result is unknown).

        3. For the ‘goal’ selection, a goal will be deemed to have been scored the moment the ball completely crosses the goal-line within the confines of the goal posts, provided that the referee ultimately awards the goal. For example, if the ball completely crosses the goal-line but the goal is not awarded because, for example a foul occurred before the ball crossed the line or because the referee did not believe that the ball did cross the line, then a goal will not be deemed to have been scored. Own goals scored will count towards settlement of this market.
        4. For the ‘free kick’ selection, a free-kick will be deemed to have been awarded the moment the referee and or assistant referee signal any of the following: A direct free-kick following a foul, a indirect free-kick following a foul or offside offence, or a penalty kick, but not a corner or drop ball.
        5. For the ‘corner’ selection, a corner will be deemed to have been awarded the moment the referee and or assistant referee signal for the award of a corner.
        6. For the ‘goal kick’ selection, a goal kick is awarded and timed according to when it was indicated by the referee and/or assistant referees. A kick out from the hands of the goalkeeper or a free kick taken by the goalkeeper is not a goal-kick.
        7. For the ‘throw in’ selection, a throw in will be deemed to have been awarded the moment the referee and or assistant referee signal the award of the throw in.
        8. For markets where “hit the woodwork is offered”, this will be defined as the ball making contact with any part of the posts or crossbar from an attempt on the opponent's goal during active play. Shots that hit the woodwork on their way into the goal will count.
        9. For ‘Exactacca” markets, all bets are for 90 minutes only, extra time and penalties will not count.

        10. First & Anytime assist markets:
          • Settlement of this market will be taken from www.statbunker.com.

For example, if a game (Game A) actually kicks off at 15:03:00 and the first goal in that game is 15:07:01, the goal will be settled as the 5th minute. And a game (Game B) that kicks off at 15:00:00 and the first goal in that game 15:05:01, the goal is settled as the 6th minute, meaning that Game A would have the first goalscorer.
