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 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 â€" 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

    Any customer disputes regarding any bet or market settlement will be resolved in accordance with the Betfair Dispute Resolution Policy, see here.

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.
      • If Betfair accepts a bet on a market for which the outcome has already been determined, then that bet shall be deemed void (and no winnings shall be payable in respect of it).
    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).
    4. 2.4Selections Not Offered

      • Betfair endeavours to keep its markets updated at all times (such that potential winning selections for each market are always offered). However, should the team/individual/participant which ultimately wins be unavailable for any reason, bets on other selections in the applicable market will stand (and will be settled in accordance with these, and any other applicable, settlement rules).
  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.
    • o In the event "each way" is offered in a market when the pricing of the market clearly indicates that it should not have been, Betfair reserves the right to settle this bet as "win only". Should the selection be part of an Each Way multiple, the entire multiple will be settled "win only".
    • The "correct price" will be determined by Betfair (acting reasonably).
  9. Handicap markets

    • Unless stated otherwise in any rules relating to specific sports, handicap markets are determined by adjusting the score of the selected team by the applicable handicap which is offered in respect of that team. For example, if Team A + 10 is selected, 10 points will, for settlement purposes, be added to the score of Team A. Where the draw is selected in a handicap market, the relevant bet will be determined by adjusting the home team’s score by the applicable handicap (for example, if draw - 6 is offered, 6 points will, for settlement purposes, be deducted from the home team’s final score and if, following such deduction, both teams’ scores are the same, the bet will be deemed to have been successful).
    • Where a blatant error is made in handicap set up i.e. handicap reads as - instead of + and vice versa, on any of our events, either in Live Betting or before the start, - we reserve the right to settle bets at the correct handicap at the time at which the bet was placed.
    • Where only handicap betting is available, the bet will be settled as a handicap bet whether selected or not.
  10. 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.
    • 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, save for Euros where the maximum payout will be the same as the amount stated in sterling. The maximum payout for "Best Odds Guaranteed" is £1,000 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).
    • Horseracing - We pay double result on all horse racing selections running in Ireland and the UK which are covered in Full Service. Double result/first past the post bets are subject to the maximum payout limits set out in the table below (Note: applies only to meetings covered by Full Service). The below limits apply even where a customer has taken prices.
    • The maximum payment to any one customer betting on the Tote via Dial-a-Bet in respect of any one day’s UK Jackpot or Placepot bets is £50,000 and £10,000 for Quadpots. Quadpots are also subject to a maximum payment of twice the total Tote pool, or twice the SP place accumulator returns, whichever is the lesser. Where we believe the Tote return has been affected by rigging we reserve the right to settle all Tote bets at the returned SP or its place equivalent.

    • Overall Maximum Daily Payout Limit: Subject to any lower limits that may apply in respect of any particular event (as set out above), the overall maximum daily payout limit to any customer for all winning bets placed on the Sportsbook, Fixed Odds and Multiples products combined is £1,000,000 (or the currency equivalent). 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.
    • Multiples

      • Betfair currently offers two types of multiple bet: "˜Fixed Odds Multiples" and 'Same Game Multiples'. These Sportsbook Rules only apply to Betfair’s ‘Fixed Odds Multiples’.
      • A multiple bet consists of a number of legs. A leg is defined as one or more chosen selection 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) except where those selections are chosen as part of a Same Game Multiple. 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.
      • Each-way and win-only markets cannot be combined as part of a multiple bet. Should Betfair accept a multiple bet of this type in error, all each-way bets which are included within the multiple will be classed as win-only bets for settlement purposes.
      • ‘Lucky 15/31/63’ bet types - this multiple bet includes singles and upwards on 4, 5 or 6 selections respectively. The following bullet-points set out the number of bets that each Lucky bet type contains:
        • Lucky 15 (4 selections) comprises: 4 Singles, 6 Doubles, 4 Trebles and 1 Fourfold.
        • Lucky 31 (5 selections) comprises: 5 Singles, 10 Doubles, 10 Trebles, 5 Fourfolds and 1 Fivefold.
        • Lucky 63 (6 selections) comprises: 6 Singles, 15 Doubles, 20 Trebles, 15 Fourfolds, 6 Fivefolds and 1 Sixfold.
    • Rules for Tote Betting

      • From time to time Betfair may offer the facility for customers to place Tote bets. In such circumstances Betfair will place these bets directly into the relevant pools and the rules as applied by the relevant Tote (for example, the UK Tote, Irish Tote or relevant US racetrack Tote) will apply.
    • 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.
      • Your request to Cash Out is not guaranteed to be accepted and may be unsuccessful if, for example, the market suspends the odds move before your request has been processed, due to an unforeseen technical issue, or if the third-party provider who covers the sporting event has not been able to continue coverage as originally agreed. Betfair reserve the right to suspend or disable the Cash Out feature at any time. Betfair cannot guarantee the availability at all times of the Cash Out functionality, even where the functionality has been advertised in connection with a particular event. Please be aware and accept, therefore, that unless Cash Out is available and successfully exercised in connection with a particular Bet, your initial Bet will, unless otherwise provided in accordance with the Terms of Use, stand as originally placed.
      • 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.
      • Live Betting Rules apply on all live bets where Cash Out is 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.
      • On bets when a free bet has been used, cash out will be unavailable until the value of your cash out is higher than the value of your free bet.
      • 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.
      • For horse racing, Betfair reserves the right to cancel a cash-out settlement when the selection that has been cashed out on becomes a non-runner subsequent to the bet being cashed out. In this occurrence as the bet placed was on a non-runner the bet will be void and the bet stake will be refunded.

        14.1 Acca Edge

        • Applies to Sportsbook (fixed odds) accumulator bets only.
        • Not available for each-way accumulators, SP accumulators, bets placed with free bet tokens or permutation multiples (Yankee, Lucky 15 etc.).
        • Acca Edge only applies if one leg lets you down.
        • Stakes are returned as cash.
        • 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.

        14.2 Each Way Edge

        • Applies to Sportsbook (fixed odds) Each Way singles only on selected (determined by Betfair trading team) Horse Races.
        • Not available for multiples or SP singles.

        • You acknowledge that the odds and place terms with Each Way Edge applied vary from the odds of the bet without Each Way Edge.
        • 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.

      • Both Specified Pitchers: A wager in which both Listed Pitchers must start the game. If both actual starting pitchers are not the ones listed on the wagering ticket, the wager will be deemed “No Action” and refunded.
      • All other game markets are considered “Action” and wagers will remain open regardless of any personnel change.
      • Listed Pitchers are not relevant to World Baseball markets and bets on such markets will stand regardless of whether any Listed Pitchers do in fact start. Should a game end in a tie, Money Line wagers will be graded as a push with all other markets settled as per the result.

      • Batter Markets (Hits, Runs, etc.): if the listed player does not record a plate appearance.
      • To Hit a Home Run & Home Run / Game Winner Parlay: Listed players must record at least 1 plate appearance for bets to stand. If listed players do not record a plate appearance, bets on that player will be void. Listed pitchers have no bearing on this market.
      • Result of Plate Appearance: Listed players must record the relevant plate appearance for bets to stand. If listed players do not record a plate appearance, bets on that player will be void. If a player is substituted out of the game between plate appearances, bets on plate appearances that have already occurred will stand. However, bets on future plate appearance markets will be voided. For settlement purposes, hit by pitches (HBPs) will be settled as Walk/HBP. A fielder’s choice, catcher’s interference, or reach on error will all be ruled as an “other outcome.” A pitch must be thrown in the plate appearance for bets to be action. If no pitch is thrown in the plate appearance (i.e., the pitching team elects to intentionally walk the batter before any pitches are thrown) bets on the market will be void. This shall not however impact other markets which are impacted by the result (i.e., the intentional walk results in an RBI for the batter).
      • To Hit First Home Run: Listed players must record at least one plate appearance for bets to stand. If listed players do not record a plate appearance, bets on that player will be void. If a non-listed player is ruled the winner, bets on listed qualified players are action. If no Home Runs are hit in the game, "No Home Run" will be deemed the winning selection.
      • To Hit Next Home Run: Listed position players must record at least one plate appearance for bets to stand. If listed players do not record a plate appearance, bets on that player will be void. Once a player has recorded a plate appearance, wagers made on that player for all subsequent indices (Player to Hit 3rd Home Run, 4th Home Run, etc.) will stand regardless of the number of plate appearances that player ultimately records in the game. In the event there is no “Next Home Run”, all bets placed on that index will be void. Example: Wagers placed on “Player to hit 4th Home Run” market will be void in a game where only 3 Home Runs are hit.
      • Player to Record a Hit Markets: Listed players must record at least one plate appearance for bets to stand. If listed players do not record a plate appearance, bets on that player will be void.

      • To Record Total Bases: Total Bases are recorded through hits. They do not include walks, HBPs, reach on errors, or fielder's choices.

For batters, the listed player must record at least 1 plate appearance for bets to stand. If listed players do not record a plate appearance, bets on that player will be void. A change to the status of either listed pitcher will have no bearing on the settlement of any batter-specific player parlay.
      • Result of First Pitch: Settled based on the first pitch thrown in the listed half inning. A change to the status of either listed pitcher, or to either line-up, will have no bearing on the settlement of this market. For settlement purposes, a reach on error, catcher’s interference, or a foul ball that results in an out will be ruled as an “other outcome.” Batted balls that result in the plate appearance ending (ex. hits/outs) will not be regarded as strikes for the purposes of settlement. If a pitcher or batter violation results in an automatic ball or strike to begin the at-bat, the market will be settled based off the outcome of the violation (e.g. if a pitcher violation results in an automatic ball to start the at-bat, ‘Ball’ will be settled as the winning selection).
      • Method of First Hit: Settled based on the method by which the first hit of the game (for either team) occurs. A change to the status of either listed pitcher will have no bearing on the settlement of this market. If a listed batter is not in the starting line-up, bets on that batter will be void.

For relief pitcher velocity markets, the listed batter vs. pitcher matchup must occur in the listed inning for wagers to have action.
      • Pitches Per Plate Appearance: Automatic balls/strikes that result from pitcher/batter violations will count as pitches. Markets will be void should an intentional walk be issued at any point prior to or during the plate appearance. Should the listed plate appearance not occur, bets on the market will be voided.

      • 8 Big Brother, Christmas Number One and Other Novelty markets

        Big Brother

        • Should a contestant be evicted from the house, removed by Big Brother or leave of their own accord, they will be settled as a loser. Should that same contestant be re-admitted at a later date, they will be treated as a new contestant and previous bets will not stand.
        • Eviction markets apply only to official Channel Four/Five evictions. Any contestant leaving the house of their own accord or removed by Big Brother will not be treated as the next evictee for betting purposes. Betfair reserves the right to void all bets placed on an eviction market should the initial line up for eviction be changed. Others may be added to the market at any time.
        • Betfair is not responsible for the way in which Channel Four/Five conduct the show. Any late changes to methods of eviction, addition or subtraction of housemates or any other factors affecting the market are beyond our control.
        • Any disputes concerning any market will be referred to Channel Four/Five for clarification; their decision will be treated as final.
        • Betfair reserves the right to suspend any market at any time.
        • For the purposes of our markets, we will define an eviction as the permanent expulsion from the house of contestant or contestants. Therefore, fake evictions will not be considered as winners. Therefore any bets placed on a stipulated eviction (e.g. first) will run until a person is seen to egress the house with no immediate prospect of return.
        • Betfair reserves the right to apply a dead heat reduction on any event where more winners are declared than were originally specified.
        • In the event of the series been cancelled before an official winner is declared, bets will be settled as a dead heat between the contestants that have not been eliminated. Outright bets on contestants already eliminated will be treated as losing selections.

        Christmas Number One

        • Bets placed on the next Christmas number one will be settled on the basis of the UK Chart declared by the Official Charts Company.
        • For the purpose of this market, featuring artists do not count. Whether or not a song is considered to be a duet or, alternatively, a song which includes a "featuring artist" will be determined by officialcharts.com. In particular, it will be determinative if officialcharts.com includes the word "featuring" or the abbreviation "FT" (or similar) before an artist's name. Where a duet has a realistic prospect of achieving the Christmas number 1 spot, we will endeavour to offer a selection in respect of that duet (for example, Calvin Harris and Sam Smith).
        • Where multiple versions of a particular artist's song include different secondary artists (and those multiple versions are considered by the Official Charts Company to represent a single entry), it is only the primary artist that will be deemed, for settlement purposes, to be included in the entry. For example, the official Christmas Number One in 2017 was Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" (albeit that such song achieved its placing as a consequence of separate versions which included Beyonce and Andrea Bocelli). In such circumstances, Ed Sheeran alone would be considered to have achieved the official Christmas number one.

        Other Novelty Markets

        • TV Specials: If a winner is not declared for the series in question then the outright markets will be made void.
        • The betting rules for other novelty markets are often very specific and will usually be displayed on the same page as the betting market in question.

          • General Boxing Rules:
            • Results will be based on the official result at ringside with the exception of a technical draw (the rules for which are set out in the "Technical Decision / Draw" section below).
            • Results are not official for betting purposes until verified by officials at the fighting venue. If for some reason official verification does not occur at the fighting venue, then (and only then) will reference will be made to www.boxrec.com for settlement purposes. Should an official or unofficial sanctioning body overturn a fight decision based on an appeal, suspension, lawsuit, drug testing result or any other fighter sanction, this will not be recognised for betting purposes.
            • Should a contest be postponed, bets will stand if the rescheduled event occurs within 48 hours. Otherwise, all bets in relation to the contest will be void.
            • In the event of a 'no contest' being declared, all bets will be made void, with the exception of selections where the outcome has already been unequivocally determined.
            • Should there be a substitution for one of the boxers, bets on the original contest will be void, except in a tournament based competition where the equivalent of a Tattersalls Rule 4 deduction may apply (see Prize Fighter below)
            • Should there be a change in the manner in which a contest is advertised (e.g. a contest changes from a title fight to a non-title fight) bets will stand.
            • Match Betting markets where no draw selection is offered will be made void if the match ends in a draw.
            • In fights where the scheduled number of rounds changes, all bets will stand unless the result would be automatically determined by the change in the number of rounds (in which case, such bets will be voided). For example, if a fight gets changed from a 12 to a 10 round fight, bets on rounds 11 and 12 will be void.
            • Exhibition Fights – if a result is declared in the ring, all bets will be settled as per the result announced. If there is no result declared then all bets will be void.
            • The statistics provided by Compubox will be used to determine the settlement of any bets which are placed on: (i) a given fighter to achieve a certain number of punches landed, (ii) a given fighter to land a certain number of Jabs (iii) a given fighter to land a certain number of Power Punches and (iv) a given fighter to land a certain number of Body Punches.
          • Round Betting/Group Round Betting/Alternative Group Round Betting
            • This market is betting on the round/rounds in which the result of the fight will be determined, it is not betting on named fighters to win the round/rounds on the judge’s scorecards.
            • If a boxer withdraws during the period between rounds, the fight is deemed to have ended in the previous round. The bell will signal the end of a round and the bell being sounded again will signal the start of the next round. Therefore, a boxer who withdraws after the bell is sounded to signal the start of the next round will be deemed to have lost in that round, even if there's no competitive action in that round.
            • Subject to the following rule, should, for any reason, the scheduled number of rounds be changed before the commencement of the contest, all round by round bets will stand.
            • Notwithstanding the above rule, should, for any reason, the scheduled number of rounds be decreased before the commencement of the contest, all round by round bets on the dropped rounds will be void. Bets on all the remaining rounds will stand.
            • Where a contest finishes before the completion of the scheduled number of rounds and, for any reason, the winner is decided by the "judges" scorecards (technical decision/technical draw) then all round bets will be deemed losers.
            • If the contest goes to the scorecards, then all round bets will be deemed losers.
            • Where a contest finishes before the scheduled number of rounds due to an accidental injury and the winner is not determined by the "judges" scorecards, all bets will be void.
            • For "Total Rounds" settlement purposes, 1 minute and 30 seconds will represent half a round. For example, for a bet on "Over 10.5 rounds" to be a winner, the fight must last beyond 1 minute and 30 seconds in round 11. If the number of rounds for a fight is changed after this market has been set then all bets on this market will be void.
            • For "Will the Fight Go the Distance" (or similarly titled) markets, should the scheduled number of rounds change, this market will be made void. In the event of a technical decision, for settlement purposes, the fight will have been deemed NOT to have gone the distance (i.e. the scheduled number of rounds).
          • Round Specials
            • Any bets placed on occurrences to occur (or not to occur) in a given round will be deemed losing bets if the fight concludes (for any reason) before that round. For example, any bets on a fighter to have a point deducted in round 9 will be deemed losing bets if a knock-out brings the relevant fight to a conclusion in round 7.
          • Method of victory
            • A knockout (KO) occurs when the boxer does not stand up after a ten count. Technical knockouts (TKO) occur when a boxer is knocked down three times within the same round and the fight is stopped or where the referee steps in to stop the fight when it is decided that a fighter cannot safely continue. If a fighter fails to answer a bell for the next round then this will also be deemed a TKO. For betting purposes, KO/TKO options also include disqualification and retirement.
          • Technical Decision/Draw
            • If a fight is scheduled for more than four rounds and, after four rounds, an accidental foul occurs which causes an injury (further to which the referee stops the fight), the fight will be deemed to have resulted in a technical decision in favour of the boxer who is ahead on the scorecards at the time the fight is stopped (and all markets on the fight will stand).
            • If the accidental injury / technical decision occurs during the first 4 rounds, all bets will be made void UNLESS the result of the relevant market has already been unequivocally determined or if the "judges" scorecards are used to determine an official winner at ringside.
            • If an intentional foul causes an injury and the injury results in the fight being stopped in a later round: (i) the injured boxer will be deemed to have won by technical decision if he is ahead on the scorecards and (ii) the fight will result in a 'technical draw' if the injured boxer is behind or even on the score cards (and, for settlement purposes, the result of the fight will be deemed to be a draw).
            • For betting purposes, betting on rounds or a group of rounds is for a fighter to win by KO, TKO, disqualification or due to the other fighter retiring during that round or group of rounds. In the event of a technical decision before the end of the fight, all round bets will be deemed to be losers.
          • To Score a Knockdown
            • For settlement purposes, a knockdown is defined as a fighter being KO'd or receiving a mandatory eight count (anything deemed a slip by the referee will not count).

          • Prizefighter Rules
            • Match bets will be settled on the result announced in the ring. If any result is announced incorrectly at ringside but is subsequently corrected then bets will be settled based on the corrected winner.
            • Outright bets will be settled based on the winning boxer who lifts the trophy. If a substitute is introduced during the tournament, all outright bets will stand and an outright price will be quoted for the new boxer. All outright bets on boxers who withdraw during the tournament due to injury or cuts (having fought on the card) will be deemed to be losing bets.
            • Outright bets will be void on any named boxer who does not start the tournament. This rule does not apply to the reserve fighters.
            • "Either reserve" (or similar) may be listed as a selection for any Prizefighter tournaments. These selections are priced on a compete or not basis and, accordingly, all bets on these selections will stand whether or not a reserve fighter competes.
            • The equivalent of a Tattersalls rule 4 deduction may be applied to any outright bet where a named fighter is withdrawn before the start of the tournament (and an additional contender added).

    58. 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.
      • 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 destroyed 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)
    59. 15 Financial 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).

All other settlement rules which are included in this "Golf" section or elsewhere on this website will also apply to the settlement of OOT bets unless they contradict, or conflict with, those included in this sub-section (in which case, the rules in this sub-section shall take precedence).
        • For any OOT bets which involve a player to win a tournament, if that player shares the same lowest score in the tournament as another player and there is no play-off, the relevant part of the OOT bet will be settled according to our normal dead heat rules.
        • In the event of a play-off, the result of the play-off will determine the winner of the tournament. Even if three or more contestants take part in a play-off, such a play-off has, for the purposes of any OOT bets, the sole purpose of determining the winner of the tournament (meaning that the relative finishing positions, within the tournament, of unsuccessful play-off contestants is not affected by their placing in the play-off).
        • Any players who withdraw from a tournament after they have completed 3 holes or more are considered as having played in the tournament and, therefore, any OOT bets placed on those players will be deemed to be losing bets.
        • For any OOT bets which involve a player that has withdrawn before they have completed 3 holes, the bet in question will be voided in its entirety.
        • Where an obvious pricing error has occurred, we reserve the right to cancel any OOT bets placed at the incorrect price (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the OOT bet to be re-placed at the correct price).
        • Any OOT bets involving a player to finish in the top 5/10/15/20 (or similar) will (unless otherwise stated) be deemed successful if the player finishes in a tie for the last named place. For example, if an OOT bet is placed on player to finish in the top 10 and the player finishes in tied 10th position, the OOT bet will be settled as a winning bet.
        • For any obvious wording errors, we reserve the right to cancel any OOT bets placed on that selection (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the OOT bet to be re-placed with the correct wording).
        • The maximum payout on an OOT golf bet shall be £/€50,000. For the avoidance of doubt, this maximum applies to all elements of your OOT bet when taken together (i.e. it does not apply separately to each element of your OOT bet).
    63. 19 Greyhound Racing

        19.1 General

        • The following rules apply solely to online and mobile bets which are placed via the Betfair Sportsbook on greyhound racing. Separate rules apply to bets which are placed on the Betfair Exchange.
        • For commercial reasons, Betfair may exclude selected customers from receiving various promotions, such exclusion which shall be communicated to the customer by email or otherwise.
        • Best Odds Guaranteed is not available on greyhound racing.
        • Greyhound names are displayed on Betfair's website for information purposes only and all bets will be settled on the basis of the trap numbers on which bets are placed.
        • Double result concessions do not apply to our greyhound racing markets.
        • Where a "no race" is declared, all bets will be voided unless the "re-run" race takes place on the same day (in which case all original bets will stand).
        • All bets will be settled on the basis of the official result declared on the day of the relevant race. If the official result is retrospectively changed, Betfair will not resettle the applicable markets.
        • In the event that no starting prices are returned for an individual race, all bets on that race will be declared void.
        • Where a greyhound is withdrawn from a race or replaced by an alternative (e.g. reserve) greyhound, all early price bets which were placed on the remaining greyhounds before the withdrawal or replacement will be settled at those greyhounds' starting prices (while all bets placed following a withdrawal or replacement will be settled at the relevant greyhounds' early prices).
        • Each way starting price bets will be accepted for unnamed favourites. All unnamed second favourites are win only and, therefore, no each way betting is available for them.
        • In races where there are less than six runners, all Top 3 market bets will be void.
        • In races where there are less than six runners, all Betting W/O market bets will be void

        19.2 Maximum Payouts

        • Future Greyhounds are subject to a maximum payment of £50,000. The only exception to this is the English Greyhound Derby which has a maximum payout, for Future Greyhound bets, of £100,000.
        • The maximum payout to any one customer in respect of bets on any single day's greyhound racing in the UK is £100,000 to the extent that such bets are covered by a "full service". Unless stated otherwise herein, bets on all Irish greyhound races and UK bets which are not covered by a "full service" are subject to a maximum payout of £10,000.
        • Betfair only accepts bets in respect of greyhound meetings which are displayed on its websites. The only exceptions to this rule are when prices are quoted over the phone and applied to a customer's account. Any bets inadvertently processed in respect of events which are not displayed on Betfair's website will be voided (regardless of the result).

        19.3 Future Greyhounds Betting

        • For the avoidance of doubt, Future Racing and Antepost bets refer to the same market type and either term may be used interchangeably.
        • Unless stated otherwise in the remainder of this sub-section, Future Greyhounds bets are accepted on an "all-in" basis, whether a selection runs or not. Therefore, in the event of a non-runner, for whatever reason, all bets placed on an Future Greyhounds basis will stand.
        • When the runners for a Future Greyhounds event are finally determined (generally, this will mean that the event has been whittled down to 6 runners), all bets placed after the Trap Draw for the Final is announced will revert to Non-Runner No Bet.
        • All bets placed after the trap draw for a final has been announced will be settled at their starting price (i.e. SP) should any of the other finalists fail to take their place for whatever reason.
        • Bets placed on a given greyhound after the trap draw for a final will be voided if that greyhound is withdrawn from the race (i.e. such bets will be settled on a "non-runner no bet" basis).

        19.4 Each way Betting

        • Each way betting on greyhound races will be settled as follows: (i) 8 runners = 1/5th of the full payout for first three finishers and (ii) 5-7 runners = ¼ of the full payout for the first two finishers. Where there are four runners or fewer in a greyhound race, we do not offer each way betting.
        • Where the number of runners in a race is reduced to four (i.e. for a race in which five or more greyhounds were previously due to compete), any each way bets will be automatically converted to "win only" bets.

        19.5 Trap Challenge Bets

        • A trap challenge bet is a bet placed on the most successful trap across a number of races.
        • Where a trap challenge market offered by Betfair is described by reference to specified timeframes, the postponement of any races (such that they do not occur within those timeframes) will be disregarded. For example if a meeting is scheduled to run from 18:38 to 21:26 but the 21:26 race ends up taking place at 21:49 due to unforeseen circumstances, the postponed race will still form part of any trap challenge bets which are placed in respect of such meeting.
        • Trap challenge bets are defined by reference to their scheduled off-times. Any race which occurs outside of those scheduled off-times will not be included within the relevant bet (save where the race in question occurs outside of the scheduled off-time due to postponement).
        • Trap challenge results stand irrespective of vacant traps, reserves running or void races. No Rule 4 deductions will be applied to trap challenge markets.
        • All trap challenge bets will stand if more than half of the specified races in the named trap challenge market take place. If half of the races or fewer take place, bets on the relevant trap challenge market will be voided.
        • Trap Challenge markets are win only and are only available up until the first scheduled race.
        • If two or more trap numbers record the same number of wins then our normal dead-heat rules will apply to applicable trap challenge markets.
        • Should any individual race result in a dead heat for 1st place then all greyhounds concerned will be regarded as having won that race for trap challenge settlement purposes.
        • Inside v Outside – In races where there are less than six runners, all Inside / Outside trap bets will be void.
        • Inside v Outside – In the event of a Dead Heat all Inside / Outside trap bets will be void. Bets are only void if an inside trap dead heats with an outside trap. Should two inside traps dead heat ie. Trap 1 and Trap 2, then inside traps should be paid as a winner.

        19.6 Placepots / Placers

        • Placepots and/or placer bets can be accepted via telephone only. Named runners will not be accepted, only trap numbers.
        • Should a vacant trap replace a selected greyhound, any bet on that trap number will automatically be deemed to be a bet on the unnamed favourite. If, in such circumstances, there are joint-favourites for the race in question, the bet will automatically be deemed to be a bet on the joint-favourite with the lowest racecard number.
        • In the event of a placepot / placer bet being accepted on a meeting where a dividend is not declared, all such placepot / placer bets will be deemed void (irrespective of the result).

        19.7 Tote Forecasts

        • Forecast dividends are declared to a £1 stake and will be settled according to the BAGS industry forecast dividend.
        • Where a forecast bet has been placed by a customer and one of the customer's selections becomes a vacant trap, the customer's bet will automatically be converted into a win single on the remaining selection (the odds for such win single to be the remaining greyhound's starting price).
        • In the event that any number of greyhounds are involved in a dead-heat for either 1st or 2nd place then an industry dividend will be issued for both winning forecasts.

        19.8Tote Tricasts

        • Tricast dividends are declared to a £1 stake and will be settled according to the BAGS industry tricast dividend.
        • If a tricast is accepted on a race where no tricast dividend is declared then any tricast bets will be settled as a forecast bets on the first two greyhounds appearing on the customer's bet slip.
        • Where a tricast bet has been placed by a customer and one of the customer's selections becomes a vacant trap, the customer's bet will automatically be converted into a forecast bet on the remaining selections. If two of the customer's selections become vacant traps, the customer's bet will automatically be converted into a win single on the remaining selection (the odds for such win single to be the remaining greyhound's starting price).
        • In the event that any number of greyhounds are involved in a dead heat for either 1st, 2nd or 3rd place then an industry dividend will be issued for each winning forecast.
        • Tricasts are accepted as singles only. Multiples accepted in error will be deemed void (irrespective of the result).

        19.9 Fixed Odds Forecasts and Fixed Odds Tricasts

        • Should there be any non-runners in a race, bets will be settled at Industry Dividends.
        • Should any selection included within a fixed odds forecast or fixed odds tricast bet be a non-runner, the entire forecast or tricast bet in question will be void.

        19.10 Coursing

        • All bets will be settled as per Irish Coursing Club (ICC) rules. In all circumstances, the judge's decision will be final.
        • If a greyhound is withdrawn before coming under the slipper's control in the first round, bets placed on such greyhound will be deemed void.
        • In the event of a final not being run for any reason, our dead heat rules will apply to all antepost bets.
    64. 20 Handball

      • In case of a match being postponed it will be voided unless it takes place within 48 hours of the initial scheduled starting time.
      • Settled on 60 minutes play unless stated otherwise. Extra time does not count.
      • If 60 minutes is not completed then all bets will be void, except those that have been unconditionally determined. If an official result is declared all bets will stand.
      • The name/heading of a competition amounts to evidence of what a bet refers to. For example, if you place a bet on "Norway vs Brazil" under the competition name/heading U20 World Cup, the bet will apply to the match between Norway and Brazil which is part of the U20 World Cup.
    65. 21 Hockey

      • In case of a match being postponed it will be voided unless it takes place within 36 hours of the initial scheduled starting time.
      • Overtime does not count unless stated otherwise.
      • Should a match be abandoned all markets will be voided unless the outcome has been unequivocally decided.
    66. 22 Horseracing

        22.1General

        • Unless stated otherwise, all individual race markets will be determined according to the official result at the time of the ‘weigh-in’ announcement. Subsequent disqualifications, appeals or amendments to the result will be disregarded. Card numbers are posted as a guide only: bets are placed on a named horse. Information (such as jockey silks, saddlecloth numbers etc) is provided “as is” and is for guidance only. Betfair does not guarantee the accuracy of this information and use of it to place bets is entirely at your own risk.
        • If a race is declared void, or in the event of a walkover, all bets on that race will be void.
        • If a race is postponed or re-scheduled, all bets will stand providing the final declarations and the race venue remain unchanged.
        • If the scheduled venue is changed after a bet is placed, all bets will be void.
        • If a scheduled surface type is changed (e.g. turf to dirt) all bets will stand.
        • The favourite is the selection quoted in the official starting price returns at the shortest odds. The second favourite is the horse quoted at the next shortest odds. If two horses are quoted at the same odds and these odds are shorter than those quoted against any other horses, then these two are equal first favourite and equal second favourite. If two or more co-favourites are thus selected, the stake will be divided equally between them.

        22.2Future Racing

        • For the avoidance of doubt, Future Racing and Antepost bets refer to the same market type and either term may be used interchangeably.
        • All Future Racing bets are accepted and settled on a Rules of Racing basis only.
        • Future Racing bets are accepted at quoted prices, up to and including the day prior to the event, on the basis of all in, run or not, entered or not. Therefore selections not taking part in the race/event concerned are losers
        • Future Racing bets are those placed at our quoted prices on horses and prior to the race becoming classed as ‘day of event’ (day of event is a term used to describe the time at which overnight declarations are made, usually 10am on the day preceding the race (or two days for certain Group 1 races) for horse racing and the day of the race for greyhounds).
        • All bets placed after the overnight declaration stage are settled in accordance with our early prices/day of race rules.
        • In line with principals laid down by Tattersalls Rules of Racing, Future Racing bets will be void under the following circumstances, otherwise bets stand:
          • If the race is abandoned or declared void.
          • If the venue of the race is altered or postponed to a later date at a different track.
          • If the race is postponed to a later date at the same track with entries totally reopened bets placed after the initial entries are void, but bets placed prior to the initial entry stage will stand. All bets will stand if a race is postponed to later date at the same track with the same entries, whether the bet was placed before or after the initial entries stage.
          • If the horse is balloted out or eliminated under Jockey Club rules single bets will be void. In any such cases, accumulative Future Racing bets will stand on the remaining legs, at the prices laid on the selections in those races, with a double becoming a single, a treble becoming a double, etc.
          • In the event of horses being withdrawn under Jockey Club/Turf Club rules, to limit the number of entries taken part, these horses shall be void. The liability of a layer against horses remaining will be reduced on both win and place parts of such bets, in accordance with the rate to be announced before the race by Tattersalls Committee, dependant on the odds currently available against the withdrawn horses at the time of withdrawal. All bets are executed at the price ruling at the time of handing in of the bet. We reserve the right to correct any palpable error. Win doubles, trebles, etc are calculated at full accumulative odds. Each-way doubles and trebles etc. are settled win-to-win, place-to-place, and for the place part of such bets, the fractional odds pertaining at the time of acceptance. Place only bets, conditional bets and forecast bets are not accepted for Future Racing. When the same selection is backed to win two or more races/events in Future Racing bets, special odds are applicable. These special odds will supersede the accumulative odds calculated from the individual event prices irrespective of the fact that the individual event prices may be endorsed on the slip. If special odds were not available, the stake will be divided equally as singles at the prices available at the time the bet was placed.
          • Any horse that does not qualify for, or is expunged from a race, will be settled as a loser. Bets taken on a horse after they have not qualified by the applicable qualifying date will be voided.

        22.3'Best Odds Guaranteed'

        • Where ‘Best Odds Guaranteed’ is offered:
          • Best Odds Guaranteed applies, for Winner markets only (win and each way), to any price taken on singles after 8am on the day of the applicable race.
          • "Best Odds Guaranteed" is not available on Future Racing markets.
          • ‘Best Odds Guaranteed’ is not available on multiples.
          • Where "Best Odds Guaranteed" is offered, bets will be settled at the Industry Starting Price ("SP") if the SP is bigger than the price taken by the customer when they place their bet. For example, if the price taken is 3/1 and the SP is 4/1, we will pay out at the bigger price of 4/1.
          • In the event of a Rule 4 deduction applying to a price taken, we will pay at the bigger odds after the Rule 4 deduction has been made to the price taken.
          • Where no SP is returned, the last price offered by Betfair fixed odds will be taken as the SP.
          • Best Odds Guaranteed does not apply to Oddsboost selections

        22.4Starting Prices

        • '˜SP bets' placed on the Betfair Sportsbook or Betfair's 'Fixed Odds' products will be settled on the official Industry Starting Price and not the 'Betfair SP'.
        • If no official Industry Starting Price or Industry Off Course Starting Price is returned, bets where no price is taken (including forecasts, tricasts and unnamed favourites) will be settled at the last price quoted on the Betfair Sportsbook prior to the off of the race.

        22.5Double Resulting

        • Double result is only applicable to horse racing in Ireland and the UK where an industry SP is returned.
        • Double result means if your horse is first past the post you get paid, however, should your horse be awarded the race or promoted to a place, as a result of a stewards enquiry or an objection which is announced before the ‘weigh in’ or ‘winner alright’, we will still pay you.
        • In a combined Horses bet, the bet remains a winner if a runner in a combined horses selection is first past the post and another horse is promoted to a winner. The bet is promoted to winner if the runner in a combined horses selection is promoted to winner where the first past the post was not in the combined horses selection.
        • We offer Double Result on Place Betting, Betting Without Favourite, Fallers Insurance, Combined Horses & all Insurebet Markets.
        • Double result does not apply to the following bets or circumstances:
          • All Future Racing bets
          • Bets which rely on Tote dividends ie. Jackpots, Placepots etc which are settled on the Rules of Racing
          • Any horse disqualified for taking the wrong course or for carrying an incorrect weight
          • Races which are declared void
          • Where there is an official correction to the result by the judge or SIS prior to the ‘weigh in’ and any races which are declared void before the ‘weigh in’ for which Rules of Racing will apply
          • All bets on horse racing outside of Ireland and the UK (which shall be settled on a Rules of Racing basis only)
          • All bets on horse racing within Ireland and the UK where an industry SP is not returned in respect of the applicable race (such bets shall be settled on a Rules of Racing basis only)
          • A selection given as the winner in error by the judge
          • All bets placed on Betting in Running markets (which will be settled on a Rules of Racing basis only)
          • Oddsboost Markets
          • The Aintree Grand National

        22.6Match Betting

        • Where we offer match betting (i.e. where we select two or more horses in a particular race to compete against each other in a match bet), all bets will be settled in accordance with the Rules of Racing of the British Horse Racing Authority which are then in force (and results will be determined according to the official returns in the following day's Racing Post).
        • 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.

        22.7Place Terms

        • Each-way bets (Win and Place) are offered for the majority of races. For all horse races (at Early 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, unless indicated otherwise, 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.
        • From time to time we may offer promotions that pay out on extra placings in a horse race. In these instances we reserve the right to alter the standard place terms as set out above (e.g. we may offer to pay out 5 or 6 places in a handicap with 16 or more runners but to do so at 1/5 of the odds as opposed to standard 1/4). These promotions are not confined to handicaps. The onus is on the customer at all times to check the each way terms on offer (particularly in those races where we are offering additional place payouts).
        • For a horse to be deemed not to have been placed in a given race, it must have started that race.
        • 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.

        22.8Combined Winning Distance for a Meeting

        • Distances for each race meeting are settled on a 'first past the post' basis. If any of the scheduled races at a meeting are not run, bets are void unless the maximum quote has been attained.
        • The maximum winning distance per race for a flat race is 12 lengths while a National Hunt race is 30 lengths. This also applies should only one horse complete the race.
        • Distances are as follows:
          • Nose: 0.05
          • Short-head: 0.1
          • Head: 0.2
          • Neck: 0.3
          • Half a Length: 0.5
          • 3/4 of a Length: 0.75
          • 1 Length: 1
        • No Finishers - If there are no finishers in a race, it shall be treated as void.
        • Walkovers will be excluded from all markets unless created by the withdrawal of a horse after we have begun quoting a market concerning the race in question, in which case the make-ups will be as follows:
          • Distances: Flat 5 lengths, National Hunt 12 lengths.

        22.9Faller Insurance

        • Price offered is for the horse to win the race.
        • If the horse falls, unseats the jockey or is brought down the bet stake is returned. It does not apply to horses that Slip Up, Refuse, Run Out or get Carried Out.
        • In the event of a horse being withdrawn, not under starter’s orders, stakes on that selection will be returned.
        • Bets for the remaining horses in the race will be subject to a deduction in accordance with Tattersall’s R4(c) based on the Win price of the withdrawn horse(s) at the time of withdrawal, (see Tattersall’s R4 table under Horse Racing rules). E.g. Horse X priced at 4/1 in the win market and 11/4 in the "Faller Insurance" market is withdrawn then a R4 deduction of 20c based on the 4/1 Win price shall apply to the "Faller Insurance" market.
        • Refunded bets will be settled as soon as possible but in some cases may take up to an hour.
        • Where disputes arise results will be taken from www.racingpost.com

        22.10Favourites Index

        • Quotation is made on the basis that the horse which is the SP favourite is awarded 25 points if it wins, 10 points if it is second and 5 points if it is third. Points will be awarded for first 3 places irrespective of Each Way terms.
        • 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 tabloid edition of the Racing Post) has not come under starter's orders then, for the purposes of the bet if its price at the time of withdrawal is:
          • Equal to or greater than 5/1, 5 points will be awarded.
          • Less than 5/1 but greater than evens, 10 points will be awarded.
          • Evens or less, 15 points will be awarded.
        • No Finishers - If there are no finishers in a race, it shall be treated as void
        • Walkovers will be excluded from all markets unless created by the withdrawal of a horse after we have begun quoting a market concerning the race in question, in which case the make-ups will be as follows:
          • Favourite: 20 points
        • If the returned favourite dead-heats for one of the places then it will be awarded the average points of the two places involved.
          • For example, a dead-heat for first would be awarded the average of 25 + 10 points = 17.5 points
          • A dead-heat for second would be awarded the average of 10 + 5 points = 7.5 points
          • A dead-heat for third would be awarded the average of 5 + 0 points = 2.5 points

        22.11Winning Distance/How Far Will It Win By

        • Betting on the winning distance will be on races only as displayed.
        • The winning distance will be that margin, as officially announced between the winning horse and the second.

Bets for the remaining horses in the race will be subject to a deduction in accordance with Tattersall’s Rule 4(c) based on the win price of the withdrawn horse(s) at the time of withdrawal, (see Tattersall’s Rule 4 table above).
        • Double Result concession does not apply to this market.

        22.13Betfair 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 Future Racing 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.

For example, if a horse (which is priced at 4/1 in the win market and 11/4 in the "Insurebet 2 Places" market) is withdrawn, then a Rule 4 deduction of 20% (based on the 4/1 win price) shall apply to the "Insurebet 2 Places" market.

      • In some tournaments, a “foul play review system" will operate. Under this system, when a yellow card is shown on-field, a, off-field bunker then reviews the incident and decide whether a yellow card is sufficient, or whether it should be upgraded to a red card.

The same rules apply for State of Origin and any other Australian Rugby League match where extra time is played.
      • If the result of an NRL match after extra time is a draw, then the Dead Heat Rule will apply to all bets where a winner has not been officially declared. All winning margin bets, including Dozen Winning Margins, will be deemed unsuccessful bets as neither team has won the match.
      • If a match is postponed, bets will stand until 48 hours from the original kick off time, after which time they will be void.

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.
      • NRL & Super League Outright / Regular Season Outright / Top 2 / 4 / 8 Finish: All In Betting. Any Team which has points deducted due to breaches of rules and regulations will be deemed a starter for resulting purposes. Any loss of titles after the completion of the Grand Final will be deemed null and void and all bets will stand. 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.
      • NRL & Super League Wooden Spoon: This market is settled on the team which has the least wins for the season. A draw is considered as half a win. In the event of more than one team having the same number of wins, the outcome will be determined by the worst 'for and against' points total. Points deducted because of breaches of rules and regulations are excluded for resulting purposes. All In. Win Only.
      • To Miss Top 2 / 4 / 8: 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 will be void.
      • Tournament Tries/Points: Bets will apply to all playing time (including any extra time) in any match where an official result is declared.
      • Tryscorers: All bets will be refunded if they were placed on players not included in the official match day 17. All players that are named in the match day 17 will be considered "All In" for all tryscorer markets (including "First Tryscorer" and "First Team 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, the player who would (in our reasonable discretion) have scored the try (i.e. had foul play not occurred) will be deemed to have scored the try for resulting purposes.
      • First 2nd Half Tryscorer: If a player is included in his team's matchday 17 man squad, all bets on that player will stand regardless of whether the player is on the field for the first 2nd half try or not.
      • 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 13 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.
      • Best Kicking Percentage Matchbets / Kicker Matchbets: Bets will be void if both players do not attempt at least 1 placed kick at goal.
      • Player Total Points / Perfect Kicking record: Bets will be void if a player does not attempt at least 1 placed kick at goal.
      • Statistics/Supercoach Markets: All bets on players not in the starting 13 will be void. All statistic bets will be paid at the completion of each round in accordance with official NRL statistics. Supercoach markets will be paid at the completion of each round in accordance with the Daily Telegraph (Australia) results.
      • Top Tryscorer / Top Points Scorer: dead heat rules apply.
      • Regular Season Team Matchbets: dead heat rules apply.

      27.3 #Oddsonthat - Rugby Union and Rugby League Rules

      • The rules in this sub-section apply specifically to the settlement of any Rugby Union or Rugby League bets which are placed via #oddsonthat ("OOT"). All other settlement rules which are included in this "Rugby Union/League Rules" section (or elsewhere on this website) will also apply to the settlement of OOT bets unless they contradict, or conflict with, those included in this sub-section (in which case, the rules in this sub-section shall take precedence).
      • All OOT bets are settled on the basis of 80 minutes play unless otherwise stated. Overtime/Extra Time/Sudden Death will not count except when the phrases 'To Qualify', 'Lift The Trophy', 'Win The Tie' or similar are quoted. For all multiple OOT bets which involve one or more bets including such phrases, the remaining bets (i.e. which do not include such phrases) will be settled on the basis of 80 minutes play unless stated otherwise.
      • If any player who forms part of an OOT bet does not take any part in the relevant match (or does not fulfil the conditions of the bet), then the whole OOT bet shall be voided. This will apply in all cases regardless if any/all of the remaining components win or lose.
      • For any OOT bets which involve players being shown yellow or red cards (for example, total match cards), only cards awarded once the player is active in the match will count. Any cards shown before the starting whistle or after the final whistle will not count.
      • For any obvious wording errors, we reserve the right to cancel any OOT bets placed on the relevant selection (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the OOT bet to be re-placed with the correct wording).
      • The Maximum payout for an OOT rugby bet shall be 25,000 euro/pounds. For the avoidance of doubt, this maximum applies to all elements off your OOT bet when taken together (i.e. it does not apply separately to each element of your OOT bet).
    78. 27 Snooker and Pool

      • In the event of a match starting but not being completed, the player progressing to the next round will be deemed the winner (or in the final the player declared the winner).
      • If a player fails to start a tournament or match all bets on that player or individual match will be void.
      • If a match is not completed for any reason then bets on 'any correct score' or 'next frame' market will be void.
      • If a match is not completed for any reason, bets on any handicap market will be void unless the market has been unconditionally determined.
      • First Colour Potted The first colour legally potted scoring its own value (i.e. not taken as a free ball) will be considered the winner, irrespective of whether there are any subsequent re-racks.
      • Next Frame - First Player to Pot a Ball The first player potting a ball legally will be considered the winner, irrespective of whether there are any subsequent re-racks.
    79. 28 Soccer

      • 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 duration other than the standard 90 minutes (e.g. 60, 70, 80 or 120 minutes) 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, if the match is played in the traditional format of two halves, 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). If the game is played in an unusual format (e.g. 3 or 4 periods) then all half-time markets will be voided but all other markets will be settled on the basis of the score at the end of the match (including any time added on by the referee for stoppages).
      • 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.
      • If a match is postponed, all undetermined bets will be voided as long as the match does not start before 23:59 local time (or if Betfair believes that a match will not have started by such time) on its scheduled date.
      • Fixtures that are rearranged before the scheduled kick off date will not be regarded as postponements and all bets will stand, as long as the rescheduled date is within 72 hours of the original kick off time.
      • If a match starts but is later abandoned, all undetermined bets will be voided as long as the match is not played to a finish before midnight local time on its scheduled date.
      • If the venue of a match is other than is indicated on our website, the bet will stand provided the match has not been switched to the opponent's ground, in which case the match will be declared void. Notwithstanding this rule, in major international tournaments (eg World Cup, European Championships), all venues will be deemed neutral. If the scheduled venue of a match is changed, including if the venue changes to a new venue in a different country, all bets will stand.
      • For major tournaments (such as the World Cup), if a game is delayed beyond midnight local time, all bets will stand and be settled once the game is played, as long as the game is played to a finish within 72 hours.
      • 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).
      • To the extent that a video assistant referee is consulted, the event which led to the referral will, for the purposes of these rules, be deemed to have occurred at the actual time of its occurrence (rather than the time on which the relevant referral, or decision, was made).
      • Where we have settled a bet and, due to a subsequent VAR decision, it becomes apparent that such settlement was inaccurate, we reserve the right to reverse such settlement (provided that the VAR decision occurred prior to the conclusion of the match or other timeframe relating to the bet).
      • Bets which are placed between the occurrence of an incident which leads to a VAR review and the related VAR decision will be deemed void unless: (i) the VAR review (and subsequent decision) did not ultimately alter the decision made by the on-field officials or (ii) the VAR review (and subsequent decision) altered the decision made by the on-field officials but did not have any material influence on the bet(s) in question. All bets which were not materially influenced by the VAR review (and subsequent decision) will stand.
      • In order to eliminate any doubt, we will consider the VAR as having been used if this is understood from the referee's gestures (e.g. hand gestures or stopping the match to review the incident themselves) and/or VAR usage is confirmed by the match report issued by the official governing body who is ultimately responsible for oversight of the applicable match. In cases where it is unclear whether the VAR has been used due to missing TV coverage and/or conflicting reports, PPBF will settle the bets based on the information acquired from feed providers and generally reputable online sources (acting reasonably).
      • There is a small possibility that we will inadvertently offer soccer bets in respect of which it is impossible for the outcome to occur (for example, we continue to offer bets on a player to be the first goal scorer in a match after that player has been substituted). While we have implemented systems which aim to prevent this from occurring, in the small number of circumstances where it does, we will void the bets in question (and return the relevant stakes to customers accordingly).
      • The statistics provided by Official OPTA Data will be used to determine the settlement of any bets which are placed on: (i) a given player to achieve a certain number of shots or shots on target, (ii) the total number of offsides awarded in a match or against a particular team, (iii) the total number of shots on target achieved by both sides, or either side, in a match or (iv) the total number of tackles made by either team in a match.
      • 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.
      • With respect to "Tackles", a tackle is defined as where a player connects with the ball in a ground challenge 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.
      • A tackle won is deemed to be where the tackler or one of his team-mates regains possession as a result of the challenge, or that the ball goes out of play and is "safe".
      • A tackle lost is where a tackle is made but the ball goes to an opposition player.
      • Both are deemed as successful tackles however, the outcome of the tackle (won or lost) is different based on where the ball goes after the tackle.
      • It is not a tackle, when a player cuts out a pass by any means.
      • Missed Tackles is where a player attempts to challenge for the ball and does not make it – it is calculated by adding fouls with an attempted tackle qualifier to the number of times a player is beaten by a dribble (challenge lost).
      • Clearance is a defensive action where a player kicks the ball away from his own goal with no intended recipient.
      • Interception is where a player reads an opponent’s pass and intercepts the ball by moving into the line of the intended pass.
      • Blocked pass is where a player tries to cut out an opposition pass by any means. Similar to an interception except there is much less reading of the pass.
      • Block is where a player blocks a shot on target from an opposing player.
      • 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.
      • 'Shirt numbers' bets will refer to the shirt number allocated at the start of the match. 'Shirt numbers' bets will include own-goal scorers. Any player whose shirt bears no number will be allocated the number 12.
      • 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.
      • Any player who takes the field for any part of a match will be deemed as a runner for settlement purposes. Only players not in the squad or unused substitutes will be deemed non-runners.
      • Anytime Score markets, If one or more of the players do not participate in the game, then they will be deemed non-runners and the original price will be reduced by the price of the said player(s), and settled according to the performance of the remaining selection(s). Players will be deemed a participant in the listed market should they enter the game at any point in 90 minutes play plus injury time
      • For First/Last Goalscorer markets:
        • All bets placed on players that do not take part in the match will be void. Bets placed on players who take the pitch after the first goal is scored will be voided for First/Last Goalscorer purposes. Players will be deemed a participant for Last Goalscorer and Anytime Scorer markets should they enter the game at any point in 90 minutes play plus injury time.
        • Own goals do not count and will be ignored for settlement purposes. Effort will be made to quote all participants but that will not discount a player that is not quoted from being settled a winner. Bets will only apply to 90 minutes play plus injury time.
        • The following markets will also follow the rules applied to Anytime Scorer betting above:
          • To Score 2 or More
          • To Score A Hat-trick
          • First Team Goalscorer
          • To Score And Win
          • To Score First Or Second
          • To Score First and Second
          • To Score in First Half

      • For each way First Goalscorer markets:
        • Each-way bets will be settled on first goal, second goal, third goal, fourth goal and fifth goal only. Players who do not score until after the fifth goal has been scored will be treated as losing selections. If less than five goals are scored in any given match, Betfair will settle bets on the basis of those goals that are scored. If no goals are scored, all each-way bets will be regarded as losing bets.
        • If a player enters the field of play after the first goal is scored, both the win and place part of the bet will be voided unless the first goal is an own goal (in which case bets will stand). If a player is sent off or substituted before the first goal is scored, bets on that selection are deemed as losers.
        • If a player scores the first goal of the match, both his win and place part are winners. If a player scores the second, third, fourth or fifth goal, only his place part is a winner.
        • A player cannot be placed twice (i.e. if he scores the second and third goal, only the second goal is deemed a winner).
        • Each-way bets on no goalscorer, last goalscorer, first team goalscorers and scorecasts are not accepted. If any such bets are taken in error then the full stake will be invested as a win only bet.
        • Place-only betting is not accepted.
        • Extra time does not count.
        • Own goals do not count. In cases where an own goal is one of the first five goals then the sixth goal will be settled as a winner on the place part of the each-way bet. If two of the first five goals are own goals then the sixth and seventh goals will be settled as winners on the place part of the each-way bet, etc. In all other cases, Betfair's Soccer rules apply.
      • For '˜Tournament Hat-trick' markets, extra-time is included, however penalty shoot-outs and own goals are not included. In the event of any dispute as to who has scored any goal we will follow the decision made by the relevant governing body.
      • For Scorecast markets:
        • Scorecasts are defined as First Player to Score / Correct Score Doubles.
        • Players either not taking part in the game or taking part after a goal has been scored will cause a Scorecast bet to revert to a single on the correct score market at the relevant odds offered at kick-off. Should the initial goal (or goals) be own goals then bets on the subsequent Scorer / Correct Score Double will be deemed winners. If the only goals scored in the match are own goals then bets will be settled as singles on the Correct Score market at the relevant odds offered at kick-off. Should a match be abandoned after a goal has been scored then all bets will be settled as singles on the First Goalscorer market at the relevant odds offered at kick-off.
      • For Wincast markets:
        • Wincasts are defined as the correct first goalscorer AND the correct result double.
        • Should a player not have taken the field by the time the first goal has been scored then bets will be settled as singles on the Match Odds market at the relevant odds offered at kick-off.
        • Should the initial goal (or goals) be own goals then bets on the subsequent Scorer / Result Double will be deemed winners.
      • For 'Top Goalscorer' markets:
        • all bets stand irrespective of whether or not the player takes any part in the relevant league, tournament or competition. If there is any dispute as to who has scored a particular goal, we will follow the decision made by the relevant governing body.
        • only the goals scored in the relevant league, tournament or competition count. For example, if a player joins a club mid-season any goals scored in a different league will not count. However goals scored for a different club in the same league will count. Own goals will not count
        • any goals scored in Play-Off matches will not count.
        • goals scored in extra-time are included, however goals scored in penalty shoot-outs are not included
      • 'Mythical Match' markets:
        • "Mythical Match" bets are offered on the highest number of goals, corners or yellow cards (as applicable) achieved by, or awarded to, two teams who are playing in different matches. For example, where matches are due to occur between Team A and Team B (on the one hand) and Team C and Team D (on the other), we might offer a Mythical Match Market on whether, within those matches, Team A scores more goals, or is awarded more corners or yellow cards, than Team C (even though those teams are playing in separate matches).
        • If both teams score the same number of goals, achieve the same number of corners or are awarded the same number of yellow cards (as applicable), the draw is the winning selection.
        • The respective next fixtures of both teams will be displayed on our website.
        • If a team's next fixture is played on a different day from that displayed on our website, all Mythical Match bets involving such team will be void.

        • If a match official shortens a match for any reason (e.g. foul play) all mythical match bets involving either of the two competing teams will be void.
      • 'Shots on Target' markets:
        • for any bets involving a given player to achieve a number of shots on target, the final determination by Official OPTA Data will be used to determine the number of shots on target which the relevant player achieved.
        • A shot on target is defined as any goal attempt that:
          • Goes into the net regardless of intent; or
          • Is a clear attempt to score that would have gone into the net but for being saved by the goalkeeper or is stopped by a player who is the last-man with the goalkeeper having no chance of preventing the goal (last line block).
        • Shots directly hitting the frame of the goal are not counted as shots on target, unless the ball goes in and is awarded as a goal.
        • Shots blocked by another player, who is not the last-man, are not counted as shots on target.
        • All shots on target bets are settled on the basis of 90 minutes play (plus injury time) unless otherwise stated.

      • Saves have the following attributes:
        • Body part – Hands/Feet/Body
        • Save type – Caught/Collected/Parried Safe/Parried Danger area/Fingertip
        • Goalkeeper position – Diving/Standing/Reaching/Stooping
      • For "Player not to score" markets, Players who are not on the field at the beginning of 90 minutes play will not be considered runners in this market and be settled as void.
      • In markets which relate to the number of incidents to occur, such as 'number of corners', these will be determined on the basis of the number taken, rather than awarded. This will also apply to incidents where time is a consideration.
      • "Team Multi Corner" markets are those which are offered on the number of first half team corners multiplied by the number of second half team corners.
      • For markets that relate to the number of bookings given, the number of corners taken, any goalscorer or the time of a particular goal, the result will be determined by Betfair (acting reasonably) using information from independent sources.

        1. whether the market should be reinstated or resettled in light of this new information; or
        2. to wait for further information before deciding whether to reinstate or resettle the market.

        • Red card - 25pts
        • Maximum points awarded per player - 35pts
        • Two yellow cards leading to an automatic red will score as one yellow and one red card
      • Bookings will only count for players taking part in the match. Bookings of managers, coaches or off the field of play will not count.
      • For Bookings markets, only cards shown to players on the active field of play will count towards this total.

Cards shown after the full time whistle will also not count towards any totals. Cards shown to managers will not count towards any total.
      • Any bookings made during half-time will count, however bookings made after the final whistle do not count.
      • For 'Shown a Card' markets,bets will be void on any player that does not play any part in the match.

      • For ‘Player in Each Half’ markets, you are betting on a nominated player to achieve the stated stipulation in both the first half and second half:
        • If the nominated player achieves the stated stipulation in the selection, then the selection will be settled as a winner (e.g. if the selection is Harry Kane to have 1 or more assists in each half and he has an assist in the first half and an assist in the second half, this would be settled as a winner).
        • If the nominated player plays no part in the first half of the match, or indeed any part of the match, then the selection is void (e.g. if the selection is Harry Kane to score 1 or more goals in both halves and Harry Kane is a substitute, but comes on during or after half time, or plays no part whatsoever, the selection would be void).
        • If the nominated player plays any part of the first half, and fails to achieve the stated first half stipulation, then the selection is a loser regardless of the duration of their participation in either the first or second half (e.g. if the selection is Harry Kane to have 1 or more shots on target in each half, and he starts the match/comes on during the first half and fails to register a shot on target during the first half, this selection will be a loser regardless of his participation in the second half).
        • If the nominated player plays any part of the first half, and does achieve the stated stipulation but is subsequently withdrawn before or during half time and plays no part in the second half, then this selection will be void (e.g. if the selection is Harry Kane to score 1 or more goals in each half & assist 1 or more goals in each half, and he scores AND assists in the first half but is withdrawn before or during half time i.e. plays no part in the second half, then the selection is void. In this instance however, if he scored but didn’t assist in the first half, the selection would be a loser, as it marries up with the point above).
      • If a team is relegated from a league because, at the end of a season, it has finished within the relegation positions which are relevant to that league (i.e. usually any of the bottom three league positions), bets on that team to be relegated will be settled as winning bets. If a team is otherwise disqualified, thrown out or removed from a league (i.e. in circumstances other than those where it has finished the season within the relevant relegation positions): (i) if such team is disqualified, thrown out or removed from the league before the relevant season has started, all bets on the affected market will be void (and a new market will subsequently be loaded) and (ii) if such team is disqualified, thrown out or removed from the league after the relevant season has started (or a determination is made by the applicable governing body, during the season, that the team will be thrown out or removed from the league following the season's conclusion), all bets on the affected team will be void. For the avoidance of doubt, if a points deduction is imposed on a team such that it finishes the season within the relegation places which are relevant to the applicable league, bets on that team to be relegated will be settled as winning bets.
      • For 'Rock Bottom' markets, all teams must complete all their league fixtures for bets to stand. If one or more teams do not complete all their fixtures for any reason this market will be void. Any fixture that is abandoned, but an official result is awarded, will be classified as a completed fixture, and bets on this market will stand. Any subsequent amendments to league tables after all games have been completed will not affect settlement of this market.
      • For Handicap Win and Handicap Bottom markets, goal difference does not count.
      • For 'Top at Christmas' and '˜Bottom at Christmas' markets, the market will be settled based on league position as of 25th December regardless of games played and any postponements and/or abandonments. For 'Bottom at Christmas' markets, if a listed team is disqualified, thrown out or otherwise removed from the league prior to the 25th December, all bets will be made void on the relevant market.
      • For Top Team from a particular Continent or other selection (for example Top South American, European or African Team), the market will be settled on the team that progressed furthest. Should two named teams play each other in the Final or 3rd/4th Playoff, the winner of the match will be deemed as having progressed furthest. Dead Heat rules apply if two or more teams, which have progressed furthest in a particular market, exit in the tournament at the same stage.
      • For Team Scoring Most Goals, Team Conceding Most Goals, Team Shown Most Cards, Total Tournament Goals, Team Top Goalscorer, Total Tournament Hat-tricks and City With Most Goals markets, extra-time is included, however penalty shoot-outs are not included.
      • For Team Shown Most Cards markets, only one card will count for a second bookable offence. If a yellow card shown is immediately followed by a red card shown the total number of cards shown will count as one. Therefore the maximum number of cards issued to any one player in a match will be two.
      • For Player to Score a Goal, Player to Miss a Penalty and Player to Be Sent Off markets in respect of a particular tournament all bets will STAND irrespective of whether or not the player takes part during this tournament. Extra-time is included for such markets, however penalty shoot-outs are only included for Player to Miss a Penalty market and not for the other two. In the event of any dispute as to who has scored any goal we will follow the decision made by the relevant governing body.
      • For "next goalscorer markets", "first, second, third etc goalscorer markets" or any other market relating to a particular specified goalscorer (including "player to score a goal markets), own goals will not be taken into account. Should the (next) goal be an own goal then bets on the subsequent Scorer will be deemed winners. The active goalscorer market will always be representative of the next goal to be scored in the game regardless of the previous goal being an own goal.
      • For Goalscorer Match Bets markets, the market will be settled on the player who scores the most goals in their respective games out of the players listed (the listed players may or may not be playing in the same game). The "tie" will be the winning selection should both players score the same number of goals or both players not score. Both players must start (but need not finish) their respective games for bets to stand. Own goals will not count.
      • For "Anytime Correct Score" markets: This market offers betting on the chosen selection being the score at any time within 90 minutes of the match plus any injury time added. Where a match is 0-0 at the end of 90 minutes plus any injury time added, all selections will be losers. Extra time does not count.
      • For "˜Extra Time Correct Score" markets - this market applies to the result during the extra time period only. For the purposes of this market, the score shall be deemed 0-0 at the start of the extra time period.
      • For "˜10 Minute Markets":-
        • “Goal Scored X – Y” markets are defined as betting on whether there will be a goal scored by one of the teams within the time period X – Y (inclusive) of the event’s match clock. Only goals scored within that timeframe will count for settlement.
        • “Corner Awarded X – Y” markets are defined as betting on whether there will be a corner awarded to one of the teams within the time period X – Y (inclusive) of the event’s match clock. Only corners taken within that timeframe will count for settlement.
        • “Card Shown X – Y” markets are defined as betting on whether there will be a yellow or red card shown to a player within the time period X – Y (inclusive) of the event’s match clock. Only cards shown within that timeframe will count for settlement.
      • Please be aware that although the current score, time elapsed and other data provided on the Betfair site is sourced from a "live" feed provided by a third party, you should be aware that this data may be subject to a time delay and/or be inaccurate. If you rely on this data to place bets, you do so entirely at your own risk. Betfair provides this data "AS IS" with no warranty as to the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of such data and accepts no responsibility for any loss (direct or indirect) suffered by you as a result of your reliance on it.
      • 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
        • Each Monthly Premier League Market, will be determined using the following points rules:
          1. Teams receive three points for a win
          2. One point for a draw
          3. No points are awarded for a loss
          4. Teams will be ranked by total points, then goal difference and then goals scored
          5. If after this there is still a tie between teams the Dead Heat Rule will apply.
        • 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).
        • Except for the reversal of match results in accordance with the rule above, any points deductions issued by the Premier League governing body (for example for teams going into administration) will not be taken into account by Betfair in the Monthly Premier League Market.
      • '˜Quickbet' markets:
        • Settlement in all cases will use the time of the event supplied to us by our data provider (such data provider to be selected by us at our absolute discretion from time to time).
        • If none of the stated outcomes occur during the stated period, all bets will be settled as losing bets.
        • 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.
        • 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, an indirect free-kick following a foul or offside offence but not a penalty kick, corner or drop ball.
        • Direct Free Kick for Goals / Shots – direct free kick shots are any attempts created directly from the free kick itself.
        • 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.
        • 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.
        • 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.
        • 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.where the ball hits the frame of the goal, except goals that hit the frame before going into the net. Any shot that hits the frame multiple times (e.g. bar and left post) only count as hitting the woodwork once. Hit woodwork is always collected for the attacking team (and the player, who performed the last action), even when the ball hits the frame coming from a defensive back pass.
        • For '˜Exactacca' markets, all bets are for 90 minutes only, extra time and penalties will not count. If a player at any stage participates in the game they will be deemed a runner in the market. If a player does not participate, relevant selections will be void, and the bets settled at the combined price of the remaining selections.
        • Assist markets:
          • Data provided by Opta will be used to settle all assist markets.
          • An assist is defined by the final touch (pass, pass-come-shot or any other touch) leading to the recipient of the ball scoring a goal.
          • If the final touch (as defined above) is deflected by an opposition player, the initiator is only given an assist if the receiving player was the likely intended destination of the touch before the deflection.
          • If a shot on goal is blocked by an opposition player, is saved by a goalkeeper or hits the woodwork, and a goal is scored directly from the rebound, then an assist is awarded.
          • If a player shoots or passes the ball and forces an opposing player to put the ball in their own net (Own Goal), then an assist is awarded to the attacking player.
          • For a penalty or a free-kick, the player winning the penalty or free-kick (by being fouled or causing a handball) is awarded an assist if a goal is directly scored, but not if they take it themselves, in which case no assist is awarded.
          • For Minor Premiership Markets: A minor premiership is the title given to the team which finishes a sporting competition first in the league standings after the regular season but prior to commencement of the finals
        • Soccer #OddsOnThat Markets:
          • The rules in this sub-section apply specifically to the settlement of any soccer bets which are placed via #OddsOnThat (OOT). All other settlement rules which are included in this Soccer section or elsewhere on this website (including in these Rules and Regulations) will also apply to the settlement of OOT bets unless they contradict, or conflict with, those included in this sub-section (in which case, the rules in this sub-section shall take precedence).
          • All OOT bets are settled on the basis of 90 minutes play (plus injury time) unless otherwise stated. Extra time and penalties will not count, except when the phrases 'To Qualify', 'Lift The Trophy' or 'Win The Tie' are quoted. For all multiple bets which involve one or more bets including such phrases, the remaining bets (i.e. which do not include such phrases) will be settled on the basis of 90 minutes' play (plus injury time) unless stated otherwise.
          • If any player who is part of an OOT bet does not take any part in the relevant match (or does not fulfil the conditions of the bet), then the whole OOT bet shall be voided. This will apply in all cases regardless if any/all of the remaining components win or lose.
          • Any dubious goals will be awarded according to the final determination of the Press Association.
          • Own goals do not count towards any player totals. If an own goal is scored by a player on Team A, the goal will be added to Team B’s total goals as per normal rules.
          • For OOT bets which have been placed on the method of the first (or any other) goal (e.g. header, shot from outside the penalty area etc), any own goals will be disregarded (i.e. for the purposes of such any such bets, own goals will be deemed not to have occurred). For example, if you have placed an OOT bet on the first goal to be scored via a header, your bet will be successful if: (i) the first goal was an own goal which came off a player's knee and (ii) the second goal was an ordinary goal scored via a header.
          • For any outright OOT bets placed on the top goal scorer of a Premier League season, the bets will be settled on the basis of the player who is awarded the Golden Boot.
          • Any OOT bets involving woodwork to be hit require that the ball must hit a goalpost or the crossbar during active play. If the ball hits the woodwork after the referee has stopped play, then it will not count. If the ball hits the woodwork twice or more in succession, each connection with the woodwork will count separately.
          • For OOT bets on a player NOT to score or NOT to be carded, the player in question MUST start the match or the applicable bet(s) shall be voided.
          • If a football match is abandoned after it has started, we will settle any OOT bets which have already been unequivocally determined at the time on which the match is abandoned. Any OOT bets which have not been unequivocally determined at the time of abandonment 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 which circumstances the bet shall apply to the rescheduled match).
          • Any OOT Bets on the last goalscorer of a match will be void if that match is abandoned.
          • For OOT bets involving goal kicks, only goal kicks which are actually taken will count towards the cumulative goal kick count (i.e. any goal kicks which are awarded but not taken will not count).
          • For OOT bets involving two or more occurrences, those occurrences must take place at separate times for the OOT bet to be successful. For example, an OOT bet on a header to be scored and a goal to be scored from outside the penalty area will only be successful if a goal is scored via a header and separate goal is scored from outside the penalty area.
          • Any OOT bets involving free-kick goals must be scored directly from a free-kick. For the avoidance of doubt, a goal will be deemed to have been scored directly from a free kick if the individual who takes the free kick is awarded the applicable goal (even if the ball touched another player before it crossed the goal line). Penalties do not count as free kicks.
          • For any bets involving a penalty to be scored and/or missed (including OOT bets), if there is a retake of the first penalty we will settle this market on the result of the retaken penalty. This may include several retakes until the sequence is finished.
          • For any OOT bets involving a given player to achieve a number of shots on target, the final determination by Official OPTA Data will be used to determine the number of shots on target which the relevant player achieved.
          • Any OOT bets involving total passes, total player passes or total possession will be determined in accordance with the final determination of the official website of the relevant competition's governing body.
          • Pass shall mean any intentional played ball from one player to another. Passes include open play passes, goal kicks, corners and free kicks played as pass – but exclude crosses, keeper throws and throw-ins. For more information on types of passes please visit: https://www.optasports.com/news/opta-s-event-definitions/
          • For any OOT bets involving players to be carded, only cards awarded once the player is active in the match will count. Any cards shown after the final whistle will not count.
          • For any OOT bets involving booking points: a yellow card will be worth 10 points and a red card will be worth 25 points. However, if a player receives two yellow cards and is consequently shown a red card, the player will receive a total of 35 booking points for the relevant game. Extra-time does not count nor do cards shown after the final whistle count towards the total. Only cards shown to players currently on the field of play will count. Cards shown to managers or substitutes will not count towards any total. If a card is shown to a substitute who is not on the active field of play at the time of this card, it will not count towards any totals. Cards shown to managers will not count towards any total.
          • For any OOT bets placed on the total number of cards to be awarded (e.g. in total, to a team or to a single player / group of players), a player who has been shown two yellow cards (and is therefore ultimately shown a red card) or a player who is shown a yellow card followed by a straight red card will, for settlement purposes, be deemed in each case to have been shown two (rather than three) cards. For the avoidance of a doubt, the award of a straight red card will, for settlement purposes, be deemed to amount to the award of a single card.
          • For any OOT bets involving corners, only corners that are actually taken will count. If a corner is re-taken, it will only count as one corner.
          • For any OOT bets relating to any competition long specials, in the event of one or more matches not being played, any selections that require an event (goal, corner etc.) to occur in each match will be settled at a reduced price in line with the actual number of matches that were played.
          • For any OOT bets relating to any specials involving players who play no part in the competition, these will be void.
          • Where an obvious pricing error has occurred, we reserve the right to cancel any OOT bets placed at the incorrect price (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the OOT bet to be re-placed at the correct price)
          • For any obvious wording errors, we reserve the right to cancel any OOT bets placed on that selection (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the OOT bet to be re-placed with the correct wording).
          • Any OOT bets requiring 2 teams to score in each half or to score 2+ or 3+ goals require each named team to score 2+, 3+ or in each half as appropriate.
          • The Maximum payout for an OOT bet is £/€ 100,000. This maximum applies to any single OOT bet or any multiple which includes an OOT bet.
          • Dead-heat rules apply.
        • Golden Boot Market:
          • The Golden Boot award is given to the player who has scored most goals.
          • If two or more players score the same number of goals, the player with more assists will be deemed the winner.
          • If two or more players are still equal after taking assist into account, the minutes played by the player in the tournament will be taken into account, with the player playing fewer minutes ranked first.
          • The same criteria applies for each-way bets.
          • Extra-time is included, however penalty shoot-outs and own goals are not included.
        • Fouls Market:
          • For any bets involving team or player to achieve a number of fouls official Opta data will be used for settlement purposes.
          • A foul is defined as any infringement that is penalised as foul play by the referee.
          • For a foul to be awarded, play must be stopped and a free kick must be given. If the referee plays advantage and later distributes a yellow card once the ball goes out of play this will not count towards a foul as a free kick was never awarded.
          • Offsides do not count as fouls.
          • Fouls Won

            A Foul Won is defined when a player wins a free kick or penalty for their team after being fouled by an opposing player.

            There are no fouls won for a handball, dive, back pass, illegal restart, dissent, GK 6-second violation or obstruction where a free kick is conceded.

        • Player Statistics definition

          Chance Created – a player will be credited with a Chance Created if they play the final pass leading to the recipient of the ball having an attempt at goal (Key Pass), or if they are credited with an assist. Where the final pass prior to a shot is blocked or deflected, this will not be credited as a Key Pass.

          Goal Involvement – a player will be credited with a goal involvement if they score or assist a goal.

          Foul Involvement – a player will be credited with a foul involvement if they commit a foul or win a foul.

          • How does Each Way Betting work on the Outright market?
            • When viewing an Outright Betting market for a Tennis Tournament you will see notation similar to following. 'Each Way terms: 2 places, 1/2 odds.'
              '2 places' means when you place an each way bet it will pay on 1st and 2nd place.
              The 1/2 odds refers to the odds for the place rather than the win. You can calculate this by taking the odds displayed on-site, the minus 1, then multiple by 1/2. Finally, you add the $1 back on. For example:
              A player has odds of £5 to win the tournament. To calcualte place odds;
              £5 - £1 = £4
              £4 x 1/2 = £2
              £2 + £1 = £3
              The odds for the player to place, in this case, is £3.

      1. 1.1Player to transfer or not to transfer by set date market

        • Loan deals do count as transfers for settlement purposes.
        • If a player does not move club within a specified time window, bets placed on that player to move club will stand and will be settled as losers. In such circumstances, any bets placed on the player to stay at his or her club will be settled as winners.
        • If the player signs for a club that isn't quoted in the market, all bets placed on that player to move to a specified club will stand and will be settled as losers. Extra clubs can be added to markets by customer request.
        • Should an agreement be reached for a player to transfer to a new club on a future date, the player will, for settlement purposes, be deemed to have transferred on the date at which the agreement is completed (rather than the date on which the player transfers to his/her new club). For example, if, on 1 January, Player X signs an agreement to transfer from Club A to Club B with effect from 1 June, Player X will, for settlement purposes, be deemed to have transferred to Club B on 1 January.
        • In cases where it is unclear whether a deal has been completed before a deadline, we reserve the right to delay settlement until official confirmation has been received from governing bodies.

    2. Live Special Market Rules

      1. 2.1First Goalscorer 3pm Kick Offs

        • Which player from this list will score first from the Premier League games kicking off at 3pm (Scheduled)? The result will be determined by the time on the match clock, not by the actual time. 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. Dead Heat rules apply if the first goal is scored by more than one player in the same minute of their respective games. Bets on players who take no part in the match or who come on as a substitute after the first goal is scored will be void. Own goals do not count for this market. If any of the 3pm games are postponed all bets will be void. If any of the 3pm games are abandoned before half time all bets will be void, unless the result has already been determined. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.

Also for these markets, please note that the "0 - 5 Minutes" selection covers the first 5 minutes of the match. In other words, it runs from 0:00 until just before the clock hits 05:00.

If one of the teams does not play, then the bet price will be reduced to 2.07. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.
      4. 2.4Total Goals scored in a league, multiple leagues or tournaments

        • If a match or matches are postponed following the market being published then the goal expectancy for these matches will be removed and a new total will be created. All bets placed prior to the postponement will stand, but will be settled according to the new total. For example, "Over 72.5 goals in 3pm FA Cup" - Newport C v Portsmouth is abandoned and goal expectancy for this match is 3 goals, then the line will moved from Over 72.5 goals to Over 69.5 goals. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.
