SPORT SPECIFIC RULES

Football
NFL & NCAA -- At least 55 minutes of play needed for bet to have action. Overtime counts for both side and total bets.


Basketball

NBA -- At least 43 minutes of play needed for bet to have action. Overtime counts for both side and total bets.

NCAA -- At least 35 minutes of play needed for bet to have action. Overtime counts for both side and total bets.

In the event of a tie in NCAA conference futures bets, the team entering the conference tournament seeded higher shall be deemed the winner for betting purposes.


Hockey
NHL -- At least 55 minutes of play needed for bet to have action. Overtime counts.

Betting on hockey is done by laying or taking goals and money odds. The minus (-) indicates the favorite; the plus (+) indicates the underdog.

For example, let's say [Bruins + 1/2 Even] [Kings - 1/2 -1.40] You must lay 1/2 goal and $140 to win $100 on the Kings. You must bet $100 and take 1/2 goal to win $100 on the Bruins.

Baseball
MLB -- Games are official and bets will have action after 5 innings of play or 4.5 innings if the home team is leading. If a game is subsequently called or suspended, the winner is determined by the score after the last full inning unless the home team ties the score or takes the lead in the bottom half of the inning in which case the winner will be determined by the score at the time the game is called. Extra innings count for both team and total bets.

When betting on total runs or run lines, the game must go the regulation 9 innings, or 8.5 innings if the home team is leading, for a bet to have action. Baseball props also require the regulation 9 (8.5) innings unless otherwise stated.

Baseball bets are accepted as listed. In the event of a pitcher change prior to the listed pitchers throwing at least one pitch, all bets that specified listed pitchers are considered no action and will be refunded to your account.

All baseball series bets must have all 3 games played by the end of a specified date for the bet to have action. If all 3 games are not played by that specified date, then all bets are no action, regardless if one team has 2 wins. All three games must be official as per our rules on what constitutes an official result. Any baseball series price for a four game series will be graded based on the initial three games only.

All baseball games that go at least the regulation 9 innings and still finish tied as a result of a suspension of play shall be graded a push on all money line bets. All run line and total bets will have action. This is in accordance with current Las Vegas betting rules. In the event of a change in Las Vegas rules, we will grade these types of bets as set forth by then current Las Vegas rules.

First Five Innings bets are accepted with listed pitchers; the game must go at least a full 5 innings to have action. If the game is called or postponed after the fifth inning, this bet will still have action.

Team to Score First props are accepted with listed pitchers and will be graded immediately after the first team scores but only after the home team has completed their at bat. If the home team scores first, the bet will be graded immediately. All bets are action regardless of game suspension or postponement.

Will there be a Score in the First Inning props are accepted with listed pitchers and will be graded as soon as the first inning ends. All bets are action regardless of game suspension or postponement.

Total Runs+Hits+Errors props are accepted with listed pitchers. The game must go a full 8.5 innings for bets to have action.

Player and Pitcher props are accepted with listed pitchers. The game must go a full 8.5 innings for bets to have action. If there is a pitcher change, all player props for that game will be closed immediately. When the game starts and it is confirmed that a pitcher, other than the listed pitcher, threw out the first pitch, those props will be graded no action.

Betting on baseball is done by laying or taking money odds. The minus (-) indicates the favorite; the plus (+) indicates the underdog. On money odds whenever there is a minus (-) you lay that amount to win a dollar; where there is a plus (+) you get that amount for every dollar bet.

For example [Dodgers +120] [Phillies -140] you must lay $140 to win $100 or $14 to win $10 on the Phillies. You must lay $100 to win $120 or $10 to win $12 on the Dodgers.


Auto Racing
When placing a bet on the outright winner of a race, your driver must start the race for the bet to have action. Both drivers in a match-up bet must start the race for the bet to have action. In league championship betting, a driver must race in at least one race during the season for your bet to have action. The start of any motor race is defined as the signal to start the warm-up lap.

The official winner at the conclusion of the race shall be the winner for betting purposes.

The race must complete the scheduled number of laps and/or distance for specific proposition bets (pertaining to number of laps and/or distance) to have action; match-ups, finishing position props and future bets will have action regardless. Races must be run within one week of the scheduled date for your bet to have action.


Boxing
When the bell sounds signifying the start of the opening round, the bout is considered official for betting purposes, regardless of the scheduled length or title. Fights must run within two months of the specified date for your bet to have action.

If the fight's scheduled number of rounds is changed, all rounds proposition bets are no action. For betting purposes, a round is considered a full round only when the bell sounds signifying the end of said round. The official stopping of a round before the sounding of the bell does not constitute a full round. If one or both fighters fail to answer the bell for a round, the fight is judged to have finished in the previous round. If the fight ends in a decision or draw, all pick the round proposition bets lose.


Cricket

If a match is shortened for any reason, bets will be governed by the official competition rules.

If a match results in a tie, bets will be no action.


Golf
Should a tournament be shortened or otherwise affected by weather, the official result will be used when settling, regardless of the number or rounds played. However, should there be no further play after a bet is placed that bet will be no action.

For match-up betting all of the players listed in the match-up bet offer must tee-off for your bet to have action. The player with the most completed holes wins. If the players complete the same number of holes, then the player with the lowest score wins. If the players are still tied then the bet will be no action and all monies will be refunded. If both golfers in a match-up are in a playoff then (a) the winner of the play-off wins the match-up and (b) all other playoff participants tie each other.

Single day match-ups are bets on that particular day's 18-holes. Single day match-ups do not include holes played as part of the completion of a previous day's round nor playoff holes considered part of the overall tournament score. Should a day's round be shortened or otherwise affected by weather and the round is continued the next day, the full 18 holes will be considered in determining the outcome of the bet even if they are played over two days. If both members of the match-up do not complete the full 18 holes, all bets are no action.

For tournament props, all four rounds must be played for bets to have action. For bets on finishing positions, the official final tournament results will determine the winner.


Horse Racing
All bets are action regardless of injuries, scratches, non-starts, incomplete finishes or any other situation where placement cannot be determined.


Rugby
If a match is abandoned or postponed (not played on the scheduled day) all bets are no action, except bets on the first try scorer if a try has been scored prior to abandonment.

If a venue is changed, bets will stand unless the game is to be played at the original away team's ground in which case all bets will be no action.

Bets taken on first try scorer will be no action if the player does not take part in the game or comes on after a try has already been scored.


Soccer (European Football)

All football bets will be settled on 90 minutes play. This includes any time added by the referee in respect to injuries and other stoppages. Extra Time, Golden Goals and Penalty Shoot-Outs do not count.

To place and win a bet, you must correctly predict the result of at least one game, indicating if the game will be a home win, a tie or an away win. To win a parlay bet each of your selections must be correct. Keep in mind that for betting purposes a game can end in a tie, and when that happens, only bets placed on the tie will be winning bets. All other bets will be losing bets.

Bets taken on first goal scorer will be no action if the player does not take part in the game or comes on after a goal has already been scored. Bets taken on last goal scorer will be no action if the player does not play or come on as a substitute.

If any match is abandoned or postponed, all bets will be no action unless the relevant market result has already happened. For example, if a goal has already been scored the first goal scorer betting will stand.

When a venue is changed, bets will stand unless the game is to be played at the original away team's ground in which case all bets will be no action.


Tennis
For tennis Match Betting, in the event that a match started but was not completed, the player progressing to the next round will be deemed the winner.

All bets will stand regardless of any of the following taking place: (a) change of playing surface (b) change of venue (c) change from indoor court to outdoor court or vice versa (d) match delayed to the following day due to inclement weather.

For tennis Set Betting, if the match does not start or is incomplete due to either players' incapacity or disqualification, then all bets are no action.


Other Sports
All other events that involve a scheduled length of play or time limit must play to their conclusion or have five minutes or less of the scheduled playing time remaining when the contest concludes to be considered official for betting purposes.
