General Rules

Introduction to Rules

We pride ourselves on our customer service and our commitment to operating our business fairly and in a responsible way. All transactions and bets placed with Ladbrokes are covered by our rules. Changes to our rules will be communicated to you on our website, Ladbrokes.com.

You must exercise your own judgement in choosing to place a bet. You acknowledge that, in placing your bet, you are not relying on any statement of any employee of Ladbrokes relating to the subject matter of the bet. The terms of your bet may only be varied by oral or written notice given by an authorised representative of Ladbrokes. Ladbrokes reserves the right to refuse part or all of a bet.

General Rules cover all sports, but are superseded by any rules specific to individual sports.

"All In" or "All in Play or Not"

"All in" or "All in play or not" markets are markets that have been priced up to reflect the fact that the selection may not take any part in the event. Therefore if your selection does not play, or take part in the event, your bet will stand as a loser.

Acceptance and Validation of Bets

Late bets

Bets can only be placed on the outcome of a future event or race, unless we are offering special ‘betting in-running prices’ for that event or race. If Ladbrokes mistakenly accepts a bet for an event that has already started then the bet will be void and your stake returned, except in the following circumstances:

  • Where bets are taken after the start of an event, bets will stand if nothing has happened which would significantly alter the chances of the selection winning or losing.
  • In the case of football matches, bets will be valid if they are placed within five minutes of kick-off, providing there has been no score in the match or no player has been sent off. If a player has been sent off or there has been a goal, or a penalty has been awarded but not yet taken, then the bet will be void and the stake returned.

All bets placed after the result of an event is known will be void win or lose.

Late Bets via Internet and Telephone Betting

Internet bets include bets placed on any of our remote channels such as Digital TV and WAP. In the case of such bets, the bet is struck when a bet id or receipt exists in our back end systems or database.

  • In the case of Horse Racing, we would allow a horse bet to stand (win or lose) if only a small part of the race had elapsed and if no significant event had occurred, such as a horse falling or refusing to race.

Late Bets in our Ladbrokes Shops

  • In the case of horse races, where our EPOS systems record an automatic “no more bets time”, if a bet is taken after the start of an event it will still be valid if it is placed before the automatic “no more bets time”. For horse races of less than one mile, the automatic “no more bets time” is set at 10 seconds after the actual start of the race. For horse races of a mile or greater, the automatic “no more bets time” is set at 20 seconds after the actual start of the race. Please note, for customers betting in shops in Ireland on races of 2 miles or greater the automatic "no more bets" time is set at 30 seconds after the actual start of the race.
  • In the case of dog and virtual races, where our EPOS systems record an automatic “no more bets time”, if a bet is taken after the start of an event it will still be valid if it is placed before the automatic “no more bets time”. For dog and virtual races, the automatic “no more bets time” is set at 2 seconds after the actual start of the race.

Account Corrections

Ladbrokes has the right to recover from you any amount overpaid and has your authority to adjust your account to reflect the true outcome and rectify the mistake. An example of such a mistake might be where a price is incorrect (see Errors) a bet is late (see Acceptance and Validation of Bets) or where we enter a result of an event incorrectly.

Ante Post Bets

Ante Post bets are accepted on the basis of ‘all in’, whether the horse or selection participates or not. This means that if the horse or selection does not run or participate in the race/event named, the bet is a loser. This applies even if the selection was not entered in the race, as long as there was the possibility that it could have been entered at a later stage.

Ante-Post Horse Racing

Unless advertised differently ante-post bets will be declared void in the following circumstances:

the race is abandoned and does not take place at a later date at the same venue;

  • the race is declared void;
  • the race is moved to a different venue;
  • the selection is balloted out;
  • the selection was ineligible for the race at the time the bet was struck. For example, if after all entry stages have been closed, a bet has been struck on a runner who is not in the list of entries then the bet will be considered void;
  • it is not possible for the selection to win at the time the bet was struck, for example the horse is dead;
  • the ante-post bet is offered "with a run" which is a specific ante-post bet where stakes are not lost on the non-running horse.
  • Postponed Race(s)/Meetings - Race(S) Run Another Day

    All Ante-post Bets Placed Before Final Declaration Stage

    Bets will stand if the race is run on a later date at the same venue.

    All Bets Placed After Final Declaration Stage

    If a bet is placed after the final declarations, but the race is postponed to another day, all bets will be void.

    Each-Way Ante Post bets are settled according to the Each-Way terms advertised at the time the bet was placed. Ante Post selections can be included in most types of bets, including our range of speciality bets. However, any built-in bonuses and consolations specific to certain speciality bets (such as double the odds one winner on a Lucky 15/31/63 bet) will not apply.

    Betting In Play

    Bet in Play is available on a number of live events. Whilst every effort is made to ensure that the prices quoted are correct, the nature of live betting (i.e. constantly changing prices), means that on occasion, the price may have changed by the time the bet is placed. The correct price at the time the bet is accepted will be used to settle the bet.

    Customers should be aware that certain 'live' feeds, be they on TV, radio or the internet are subject to delays and might be watching an event slightly behind or slightly ahead of other users. This includes live streaming provided by Ladbrokes.

    A 'delay' is placed on all betting in play bets, the length of which varies depending on the sport.

    As indicated in the Errors section, any live scores or clocks displayed on the site during a bet in play event are for guidance purposes only, and although we make every effort to ensure that this information is accurate, Ladbrokes accepts no liability should the displayed information be listed incorrectly.

    Dead Heats

    A dead heat in horse racing is when two or more runners finish tied for the same place in any race.

    An example of this may be when two selections cannot be split by a photo finish and the course would determine both selections as the winner.

    In order to calculate your returns in the event of a dead heat, you would need to divide your total stake by the number of selections which finished "tied", and then multiply by the odds at which the bet was placed.

    Disputes

    If you wish to make a query or complaint, as a first step you should as soon as reasonably practicable contact the shop’s Duty Manager if it is regarding a shop, or our Customer Support Team for any non-shop related points, for assistance. If you are unable to resolve your query satisfactorily with our shop manager you should then contact our Customer Support Team. If, having spoken to a member of the team, your query or complaint is not resolved, you can ask for the matter to be escalated to a manager or supervisor. Our manager/supervisor will look into your query/complaint in more detail and contact you back with a resolution within 24 hours. You will be given the name and status of the person to whom your query/complaint has been referred.

    Any dispute or difference that arises out of or in connection with the Contract shall be determined by the Independent Betting Adjudication Service (IBAS) whose ruling shall be binding. If, notwithstanding the above, the customer issues Court proceedings, Ladbrokes reserve the right to apply to stay those proceedings pending determination by the IBAS. If the customer fails or refuses to follow the ruling of the IBAS, the customer will reimburse all resulting expenses (including court fees) incurred by Ladbrokes.

    Please refer to our article on IBAS.

    Each-Way Betting

    An Each Way bet is made up of 2 parts: the ‘Win' and the ‘Place'.

    Each part is an equal stake, e.g. a £1 Each Way bet will have £1 on the ‘Win' and £1 on the ‘Place' (a total stake of £2).

    The ‘Win' part of your bet is on your selection to win the event, and the ‘Place' part is on your selection to finish either first or in one of the pre-determined places.

    If your selection wins, both the ‘Win' and ‘Place' parts of your bet will pay out. But if your selection only places, you will lose the ‘Win' part of your bet (and lose that part of the stake) but get paid out on the ‘Place'.

    The odds for the ‘Place' are given as a fraction of the odds for the ‘Win' and will be displayed to you when you place your bet.

    Each-Way betting is most common in horse and greyhound racing, and is also usually available in other sports e.g. Football or Golf tournaments.

    For Horse and Greyhound Racing, unless otherwise stated the ‘Place' part of Each Way bets will be given the following Place terms:

    Non-Handicap Races

    • 2 - 4 Runners Win Only
    • 5 - 7 Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2
    • 8 or more Runners 1/5 the Odds 1, 2, 3

    Handicap Races

    • 2 - 4 Runners Win Only
    • 5 - 7 Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2
    • 8 - 11 Runners 1/5 the Odds 1, 2, 3
    • 12 - 15 Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2, 3
    • 16 or more Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2, 3, 4

    In other cases, including Horseracing Ante Post, selected ‘feature’ Horse and Greyhound races, Football and Sports betting events, the Each-Way ‘Place’ terms will be as advertised at the time the bet was placed.

    Things to Consider

    Please Note: Non-runners in a race can affect the Each-Way terms of your bet.

    For example, if your bet is placed in an 8 runner race, and a horse later withdraws reducing the field to 7, the Each-Way terms will change from 1/5 odds first 3 places to 1/4 odds on the first 2 places only. Similarly, if a race is reduced from 5 runners to 4, the place terms will change from 1/4 odds for the first 2 places, to 'Win only'.

    Enhanced Prices for Multiple Bets

    Unless otherwise stated (onsite and/or within specific marketing) where special multiples are available (ie: Doubles, Trebles and upwards) the following rules will apply:

    • Win bets only are accepted. Any Each Way bets taken in error will be settled to win.
    • If any of the featured horses and greyhounds are non-runners all bets will be settled on the remaining selections at SP.
    • For greyhounds If any non-runners or reserves are involved in the selected races, all bets placed prior to non runner will be settled at SP.

    Football and All Other Sports

    • Unless otherwise stated (onsite and/or within specific marketing), in the instance where one selection of an enhanced/price boosted multiple does not take place/participate or start (e.g. match abandoned) the bet will be voided and stakes returned to your account.

    Errors

    Ladbrokes make every effort to ensure that we do not make errors in accepting bets. However, if as a result of human error or system problems a bet is accepted at a price (which includes the odds, handicap provisions, and other terms and conditions or details of the bet) that is:

    1. materially different from those available in the general 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

    then Ladbrokes will pay winnings at the correct price.

    Where an incorrect handicap is displayed as a result of a technical or manual inputting error, we reserve the right to settle any affected bets at corrected odds to reflect those odds that would have been available had the incorrect handicap line been offered knowingly.

    To establish the correct price Ladbrokes will consider prices available in the general market at the time the bet was made, including the prices offered by William Hill, Betfred, Bet Victor, Paddy Power and Bet365.

    Examples of circumstances where this would apply are:

    1. the price is recorded as 100-1 when the price on offer in the general market is 10-1
    2. the margins for handicap betting have been reversed

    If a bet is accepted in error by Ladbrokes on an event or outcome for which no Ladbrokes prices are available the bet will be void and your stake returned.

    Any results, clocks or scores displayed on the site - for example during betting in play - are for guidance purposes only, and although we make every effort to ensure that this information is accurate, Ladbrokes accepts no liability should the displayed information be listed incorrectly.

    Fraud

    Ladbrokes will seek criminal and contractual sanctions against any customer involved in fraud, dishonesty or criminal acts. Ladbrokes will withhold payment to any customer where any of these are suspected.

    The customer shall indemnify and shall be liable to pay to Ladbrokes, on demand, all costs, charges or losses sustained or incurred by Ladbrokes (including any direct, indirect or consequential losses, loss of profit and loss of reputation) arising directly or indirectly from the customer’s fraud, dishonesty or criminal act.

    Maximum Payouts

    Horse Racing
    Greyhound Racing
    Football
    Sports Betting
    Non-Sports Betting

    The maximum daily payouts on any bet, or bets, including Ante Post, are as detailed below. The maximum payout limits apply to individual events. The limits below refer to the total return on the bet, excluding the original stake. If a multiple bet has been placed which involves events with different maximum payout limits, the lowest limit will apply.

    All maximum payout limits apply to any one customer, or group of customers acting together, who have backed the same combination of selections, including where placed in a series of bets, at a range of prices, over a number of days using different betting accounts and/or across different betting channels. Should we have reason to believe that a number of bets have been placed this way, the total payment of all those bets combined will be limited to one single maximum payout.

    Ladbrokes shall not be liable for any loss of profits, loss of anticipated savings, loss of goods, or any special, indirect, consequential or pure economic loss, costs, damages, charges or expenses.

    Throughout these rules, ‘Full Service’ refers to horse and greyhound races for which full details (shows of betting, official off times and results) are broadcast to Ladbrokes and viewable in our shops by satellite and terrestrial media, or Ladbrokes Xtra.

    Price Changes

    All prices are subject to change and may, on occasion, be restricted to certain stake levels. The prices offered via our different business channels may vary. For example, our shops or on-course betting facilities, may offer slightly different prices from those available at our Call Centre or on our Website/Mobile Sites.

    Online/Mobile

    We will always endeavour to ensure that the process of placing your bet is as quick and simple as possible.

    In some instances, where prices may be changing rapidly - e.g. in-play sports betting - the price of your selection may change between the moment you place your bet and the time at which your receive confirmation that the bet has been placed, the following scenarios apply:

    If the price of your selection decreases - e.g. from 6/4 into 5/4 - your bet will not be placed and you will be presented with the option to place your bet at the new price.

    If the price of your selection increases - e.g. from 2/1 to 5/2 - your bet will not be placed and you will be presented with the option to place your bet at the new price.

    Results

    All bets placed on UK and Irish horse racing will be settled on First Past the Post AND the official result.

    • First Past the Post: The immediate result after the race has been completed (see Exceptions below)
    • Official Result: Announced at the "weigh-in" on the day, after any Steward's Enquiries and/or objections have been considered. If a winner is disqualified after the official result is announced, the disqualification will not affect the settlement of bets.

    Exceptions

    The exceptions where First Past the Post does not apply and bets are only settled according to the official result are:

    • A selection taking the wrong course
    • A selection carrying the wrong weight or the jockey failing to weigh-in
    • Any Ante Post bet
    • A Forecast or Tricast bet
    • A void race
    • Any Tote/Pari-Mutuel bet
    • A selection given as the winner in error by the judge
    • A bet placed on a two-runner race or a special match bet
    • A bet placed in a “without the favourite” or any other special market
    • Aintree Grand National
    • Any bet placed at the rails on a racecourse
    • We pay FPP on UK & Irish racing ONLY - Horse racing bets placed on non-UK/Irish meetings are settled on the official result declared by the racecourse judge and confirmed by the ‘Weighed-In’ announcement. If a winner is disqualified after the official result is announced, the disqualification will not affect the settlement of bets.

    Things to Consider

    • This offer applies to winning single and multiple bets and the win part of Each-Way bets. There is no restriction on staking, and payouts are subject to our advertised Maximum Payout Limits.
    • In the event of a double result, payout on the horse that was first past the post may be subject to a small delay while we process your winnings. The funds will be credited to your account as a manual adjustment

    In the case of Greyhound racing, bets are settled on the official result announced at the conclusion of the event. If a winner is disqualified after the official result is announced, the disqualification will not affect the settlement of bets.

    In the case of Football and other Sports, bets are settled on the first result published by the official source/governing body or alternatively the official website of the relevant event, immediately after the match/event is finished. Any subsequent corrections or amendments to this result will not apply for settlement purposes.

    If the result is not immediately available from the official source/governing body or the official website of the relevant event, or there is significant evidence that the official source/governing body or official website is incorrect, we will use independent sources such as Press Association to decide settlement.

    In the absence of any consistent, independent evidence or in the presence of significant conflicting evidence, bets will be settled based on our own statistics.

    Special Bets

    We will sometimes offer special betting opportunities, for which the rules are not covered specifically in these Rules. In these instances, we will display the additional terms/rules in the text description that relates to the opportunity on the website, and bets will be settled accordingly.

    Fixed Price Enhanced Multiple Bets

    • An enhanced multiple bet is a win single only selection at a fixed price.
    • In the event of a Dead Heat, selections will be settled as an SP (starting price)/ Standard Price accumulative bet with Dead Heat rules applied.
    • All bets are struck at selection level e.g. Enhanced Jockey Multiples: in the instance a different jockey is declared to ride, the bet will stand on the horses selected not the Jockey.
    • Horse Racing enhanced multiple bets - If a different jockey is declared to ride, the bet will stand on the horses selected.
    • Where an enhanced multiple has selections affected by the withdrawal of another selection/s in a Racing market, selections may be settled as an SP (starting price) accumulative bet and a rule 4 deduction may be applied. (standard rule 4 deductions apply)
    • Football enhanced multiple bets apply to 90 minutes only i.e. never include extra time.
    • US Sports enhanced multiple bets Overtime and extra innings count.
    • Standard trading rules will be applied to all variants/markets within the enhanced multiple.

    Voids

    If a selection in a single bet is made void the stake will be returned.

    Void selections in multiple/accumulator bets will be treated as non-runners and the stake will run onto the remaining selections in the bet.

    Withholding payment and our right to set off liability

    We reserve the right to withhold payment and to declare bets on an event void if we have evidence that the following has occurred:

    1. the integrity of the event has been called into question
    2. the price(s) or pool has been manipulated
    3. match rigging has taken place

    Evidence of the above may be based on the size, volume or pattern of bets placed with us across any or all of our betting channels. A decision given by the relevant governing body of the sport in question (if any) will be conclusive. If any customer owes any money to Ladbrokes for any reason, we have the right to take that into account before making any payments to that customer.

    Back to top

    Racing

    Horse Racing

    Abandoned/Postponed Races Or Meetings: Bets will be void if: 

    • The race is abandoned. 
    • The race is declared void. 
    • Any of the race conditions or entries change. 
    • If the overnight declarations do not stand, all bets are void. 

     

    Re-scheduled Races or Meetings: If a race or meeting is re-scheduled to later in the day and overnight declarations stand (meaning that the race is not reopened) then all bets stand, unless a refund is requested prior to the off of the re-scheduled race. If at the discretion of the Racecourse Stewards, a race is restarted (from any point of the Stewards' choosing), then all bets on the race stand provided an official result is declared. Any bet struck on a horse that does not take part in a restarted race will be deemed a loser. If a Board or Early Price has been taken on a re-scheduled race, bets will revert to SP. Horses which came under Starter’s orders in the original race but do not take part in the re-scheduled race will be treated as non-runners and returns on the remaining runners will be subject to Tattersalls’ Rule 4(c). 

     

    Postponed Race(s)/Meetings – Race(s) Run Another Day: Depending on when bets were placed, bets will be settled differently.

    a.) ALL ANTE-POST BETS PLACED BEFORE FINAL DECLARATION STAGE :

    Bets will be void if: 

    • The race is abandoned. 
    • The race is declared void. 
    • Any of the race conditions or entries change e.g. changes to a different racetrack or run over a different distance.
    • Bets will stand if the race is run on a later date at the same venue. 

    b.) ALL BETS PLACED AFTER FINAL DECLARATION STAGE:

    If the overnight declarations do not stand, all bets are void. 


    Acceptance of bets: We accept bets on specified races staged under Jockey Club and National Hunt Rules in Great Britain. We are also pleased to accept horseracing bets on major races taking place across the world. Details of these races will appear on our website.

    a.) No Finishers: Bets are accepted on horse races where 2 or more horses start; if no selections finish a race, all bets will be void. In "Betting Without" markets, if the only finisher is the "Without" selection, bets on the other selections will be void.

     

    Double Result (First Past The Post): UK and Irish horse races are settled on a double result basis.

    a.) This means that we will pay out on both: 

    • First Past the Post: The immediate result after the race has been completed (see Exceptions below)
    • Official Result: Announced at the "weigh-in" on the day, after any Steward's Enquiries and/or objections have been considered. If a winner is disqualified after the official result is announced, the disqualification will not affect the settlement of bets.

    b.) The double results concession will generally apply to all Win Only and  Each Way single and multiple bets at UK and Irish race courses. However, only the official "weighed in" result on the day will apply in the following circumstances: 

    • to ante-post bets; 
    • to forecast and tricast bets; 
    • Aintree Grand National; 
    • to selections which have taken the wrong course; 
    • in races where an incorrect first past the post result has been announced in error by the judge; 
    • to selections carrying the wrong weight; 
    • to selections whose jockey failed to weigh in
    • a void race
    • a bet placed on a two-runner race or a special match bet
    • any Tote or Pari-Mutuel bets; 
    • markets were on the winning favourites and distance betting; 
    • in betting without the favourites markets or any other special market.
    • any bet placed at the rails on a racecourse 

    b.) The double results concession applies to the day of race Win Only and Each Way markets.  It does not apply to daily challenge bets, which include jockey challenges, tipster challenges, meeting challenges, match bets, aggregate winning distance and winning distance specials. In the event of a double result, unless otherwise stated, all daily challenge bets will be settled according to only the official result on the day of the race, with the exception of aggregate winning distance bets and winning distance special bets which will be settled as per the distance betting rules.

    c.) Where a result is amended after the official result (i.e. the weigh-in), for example as a result of a successful appeal, the amendment will be ignored for settlement purposes.

    d.) We pay Double Result on UK & Irish racing ONLY - Horse racing bets placed on non-UK/Irish meetings are settled on the official result declared by the racecourse judge and confirmed by the ‘Weighed-In’ announcement. If a winner is disqualified after the official result is announced, the disqualification will not affect the settlement of bets.

    e.) In the event of a double result, payout on the horse that was first past the post may be subject to a small delay while we process your winnings. The funds will be credited to your account as a manual adjustment. 

     

    Un-named Favourite: If the favourite is withdrawn and no new market is formed, bets placed on the Unnamed Favourite will be void; the same applies for the Unnamed 2nd Favourite, where the 2nd Favourite is withdrawn and no new market is formed, bets placed on the Unnamed 2nd Favourite will be void 

    a.) In any race favourites will be qualified as follows: 

    • the favourite is the horse quoted in the official SP return at the shortest odds; 
    • the second favourite is the horse quoted at the next shortest odd, etc. 
    • if two horses are quoted at the same odds and if these odds are shorter than those quoted against any other horse then these two horses are the joint first and second favourites. 

    b.) By using the term "favourite", "second favourite" or "third favourite" to indicate your selection, your stake will be invested on the horse as defined in this section. 

    c.) If two or more "favourites" horses are selected the stake will be divided and invested equally amongst each of the selected horses. However if these joint favourites are returned at a price whereby, irrespective of result, no profit could accrue to a backer of the favourite, then the unnamed favourite will be regarded as a non-runner. 

    d.) SP bets for unnamed favourites and/or second or third unnamed favourites are acceptable win only. If each way is taken in error, the bet will be settled all up to win. 
    e.) For settlement purposes, dead heat rules apply when an unnamed favourite returns joint or co favourites. 

    For example: 

    9/2 Horse Number 1 
    9/2 Horse Number 2 

    Horse Number 2 wins the race 

    Un-named fav is a dead-heat winner of 2 
    Un-named second fav is a dead-heat winner of 2 

     

    Early Price Betting: An 'Early Price' bet is defined as a bet struck with a price taken after the final declarations for the race have been made and before the first live traded or racecourse show offered is displayed.

    a.) Early Price bets are accepted on the following basis: 

    • if the selection does not run, stakes will be returned, which can also be referred to as "non-runner money back" ; 
    • in the event of non-runners, stakes are liable to rule 4 deductions (see Rule 4 deduction table); 
    • if a bet is placed after the final declarations but the race is postponed to another day then all bets will be void.

     

    Board Price Betting: A board price confirms the odds immediately before the start of the race and is generated via the live traded show or from the racecourse where the race is run as offered.

    a.) Board price bets are accepted on the following basis: 

    • we may decide to adjust the bets to the official price if there is an official correction to a displayed board price This requirement for change may be the result of the original price being incorrect due to invalid information at the time the bet was struck with you; 
    • Board prices are accepted on the basis of "non-runner money back" and are liable to a Rule 4 deduction in the event of any non-runners (see Rule 4 deduction table). 

     

    Starting Price Betting: If you do not confirm that you want the currently available price at the time of bet placement the bet will be settled at the starting price (SP). Starting price (SP) bets apply to the officially returned SP from the racecourse where the race is run.

    a.) SP bets are accepted on the following basis: 

    • all starting price bets are accepted on the basis of "non-runner money back"; 
    • a Rule 4 deduction will only apply to a starting price bet where a horse is withdrawn prior to the start of a race and a new course betting market is not formed prior to the start of the race. 

     

    Best Odds Guaranteed: Take the price - including early prices, board prices, singles and multiples - and if the SP returns greater we'll pay you out at the bigger price. Best Odds Guaranteed is available on all UK and Irish horse and greyhound races Best Odds Guaranteed will be offered as displayed on the website to online UK & Irish horse races bets only on the day of the event unless otherwise stated.

    a.) Where Best Odds Guaranteed is offered bets will be settled at the Starting Price (SP) if the SP is bigger than the price originally taken. e.g. Early/Board Price taken 4/1 and S.P is 5/1 we will pay out at the bigger price. In the event of a Rule 4 applying to a price taken we will pay at the bigger odds after the Rule 4 deduction has been made. Bets placed after off do not qualify. 

    b.) Best Odds Guaranteed does not apply to Ante-Post racing, Tote, pari-mutuel, enhanced price markets, Price Bomb, Green Tick, betting without, win only, place only markets, Top Finish Markets (Top 2/3 Finish), 'To finish 2nd/3rd', match bets and insurance bets. We reserve the right to withdraw this guarantee at any time and to withdraw the BPG offer from a customer account at any time. 

    c.) Bets placed after the off do not qualify for this offer. Bets placed in-running will not apply. In the event of a Rule 4, we pay you at the bigger odds, after the Rule 4 deduction has been applied.

    d.) The maximum benefit for Best Odds guarantee is capped at £50,000 per customer per day across all applicable channels. 

     

    Best Odds Guaranteed Plus (BOG+): Take the price for a win or each way single bet (including early prices and board prices) and if the SP returns greater than the price you've taken, we'll not just pay you at the SP but we'll boost the price further. For example, if you take a price of 3/1 and the selection wins with a Starting Price of 7/2, we pay you at the boosted price of 4/1. With standard Best Odds Guaranteed, you would be paid at 7/2 in this example.

    a.) BOG+ is available from Sunday to Friday on a selected UK and Irish meeting as advertised on lour websites. BOG+ will be available for selected ITV/ITV4 races on Saturdays.

    b.) Offer is available to new and existing Website and Mobile App customers, betting in £/€, or currency equivalent. BOG+ is not available in shop or via telephone betting.

    c.) Maximum stake for BOG+ to apply is £/€200 for Win bets and £/€200 for Each Way bets. Bets placed with a higher stake will have the first £/€200 settled at BOG+ with the remaining stake settled at standard Best Odds Guaranteed. For example, £/€250 Win on a horse where the BOG+ price is 5/1 (boosted from 9/2) will have £/€200 at 5/1 and £/€50 at 9/2. The maximum stake limits are per customer per selection.

    d.) We reserve the right to withdraw this guarantee at any time and to apply exemptions to selected customers.

    e.) BOG+ is not available for Multiple bets.

    f.) The following odds list will be used to apply the price enhancements for BOG+. Where the SP is one of the prices below (or in between two prices), the boosted price will be the next one in the list. For example, an SP of 5/6 or 9/10 would be boosted to 10/11.

    1/100 1/66 1/50 1/40 1/33 1/25 1/20 1/18 1/16 1/14 1/12 1/11 1/10 1/9 2/17 1/8 2/15 1/7 2/13 1/6 2/11 1/5 2/9 1/4 2/7 3/10 1/3 4/11 2/5 4/9 1/2 8/15 4/7 8/13 4/6 8/11 4/5 5/6 10/11 1/1 11/10 6/5 5/4 11/8 6/4 13/8 7/4 15/8 2/1 9/4 5/2 11/4 3/1 10/3 7/2 4/1 9/2 5/1 11/2 6/1 13/2 7/1 15/2 8/1 9/1 10/1 11/1 12/1 14/1 16/1 18/1 20/1 22/1 25/1 28/1 33/1 40/1 50/1 66/1 80/1 100/1 125/1 150/1 200/1 250/1 300/1 400/1 500/1 1000/1

    k.) Any bets placed from Paysafe and Entropay deposits will not qualify for this offer.

     

    Standard Each Way Terms: Unless stated otherwise each way bets are settled at standard place terms.

    a.) Standard place terms are as follows: 

    • Non-handicap Races

    if there are 2-4 runners then it's Win Only; 

    if there are 5-7 runners then it's ¼ the odds a place for horses placed first and second; 

    if there are more than 8 runners then it's 1/5 the odds a place for horses placed first, second and third. 

    • Handicap Races

    if there are 2-4 runners then it's Win Only; 

    if there are 5-7 runners then it's ¼ the odds a place for horses placed first and second; 

    if there are 8-11 runners then it's 1/5 the odds a place for horses placed first, second and third; 

    if there are 12-15 runners then it's ¼ the odds a place for horses placed first, second and third; 

    if there are 16 or more runners then bets will be settled at ¼ the odds a place for horses placed first, second, third or fourth. 

    • Additional Rules

    if bets are struck after the final declarations the applicable place terms are determined by the number of actual runners, rather than the number of declared runners; 

    for all ante-post bets the place terms offered at the time the bet was struck will stand regardless of the number of actual runners. 

    Withdrawals / Non-Runners: If a horse comes under Starter's Orders but refuses to race, the bet will be a loser. 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. (The exception to this being Ante Post bets). Bets on the remaining runners in that race, taken at Early Prices or at Show Prices prior to withdrawal, will be subject to a deduction. This is based on Tattersalls Rule 4(c) (see below) and is dependent on the Non-Runner's price at the time of bet placement. In reformed markets, the total deduction on the two or more horses - one in the original market and one in the reformed market - will be calculated on the prices applicable in the original market. Bets on horses in subsequent markets that then have one or more withdrawn horses will have a deduction calculated on the prices applicable to that market at the time the bet was placed.

    In the event that there is insufficient time to form a new market on the race, S.P. bets may also be subject to a deduction based on Tattersalls Rule 4(c).For bets at Early Prices, the application of Rule 4(c) will be determined by the price available at the time of bet placement for the horse that is withdrawn. Rule 4 deductions are made to the money or winnings you receive back when the horse you have backed wins or is placed. These deductions are only made when one or more horses are withdrawn from the race after you have placed your bet. Rule 4 deductions are normally made in cases where you have taken a price on your horse. Rule 4 deductions can be made from the Starting Price of a horse when a horse is withdrawn just before the race and there is no time to create a new a market. Rule 4 deductions are made when a horse is withdrawn from a race because it becomes easier for the other runners to win - each horse in the race will have one less to beat so it is more likely that it will win. Therefore an amount of money is taken out of winnings to balance the effect of the withdrawn runner. If bookmakers did not make Rule 4 deductions from winnings then in some cases customers would be able to back all the horses in one race and make money whichever horse won. For example, suppose there are three horses in a race. Horse A is 1/3 favourite, horse B is 3/1 and horse C is 12/1. Now suppose horse A is withdrawn and there are no deductions made to the prices of horse B and C. In this case if you placed £1 on horse B and £1 and horse C you would win more than the £2 staked whichever horse won. If horse B won you would win £4 and if horse C won you would win £13. Therefore Rule 4 deductions are made to take into account the additional advantage a customer has when a horse is withdrawn from a race. If a horse is withdrawn before coming under ‘Starters Orders’ then bets will be settled using the Tattersall's Rule 4 deduction scale. The Tattersall's Rule 4 deduction scale adjusts prices to reflect the absence from the book of any non-runner. The following deductions are made per pound won and relate to the price of the withdrawn horse at the time a customer places their bet. If two or more horses are withdrawn before coming under Starter's Orders, then the total deduction will be the sum of the individual deductions, up to a maximum of 90p per pound won.

    Rule 4(c): When there is a non-runner a rule 4 may apply. Price at time of bet placement and amount deducted in the £ (or equivalent) from winnings:

    Over 15.00

    No deduction

    In the event of there being two or more withdrawals in one event, the total deduction shall not exceed 90p per £1.

    We will waive any individual 5p Rule 4's that apply to a particular race. However, if there is more than one Rule 4 deduction of 5p or more then all deductions will apply. So, for example, is a horse at 14/1 is withdrawn and then later on a horse at 10/1 is withdrawn, the total rule 4 deduction for bets placed before the first withdrawal will be 10p. If only one horse is withdrawn at a price of between 10/1 and 14/1 no 5p deduction will be applied. This table shows the amount of the deductions based on the price of individual selections. These deductions are the amount of money that is taken from each £1 in winnings. Hence if you win £10 and there is a 10p Rule 4 deduction you will only receive £9 winnings. More than one Rule 4 deduction can apply if more than one horse is withdrawn from a race. For example, if a horse at 5/4 is withdrawn at 9:30 and a horse at 6/1 is withdrawn at 11:00, then a 40p and 10p deduction (50p in total) will apply to bets placed before 9:30. However if a new market is formed after 9:30 once the 5/4 horse had been withdrawn then only a 10p deduction will apply to bets placed between 9:30 and 11:00. This is because the prices for the market formed after 9:30 will not include the horse that has been withdrawn at 9:30. We will waive any individual 5p Rule 4's that apply to a particular race. However, if there is more than one Rule 4 deduction of 5p or more then all deductions will apply. So, for example, is a horse at 14/1 is withdrawn and then later on a horse at 10/1 is withdrawn, the total rule 4 deduction for bets placed before the first withdrawal will be 10p. If only one horse is withdrawn at a price of between 10/1 and 14/1 no 5p deduction will be applied.

    Multiple Bets

    If you've placed a multiple bet such as a double, treble or Lucky 15, your bet will stand on the remaining selections. So a double becomes a single, a treble becomes a double, and so on.

    Forecast

    If you have a non-runner in a forecast bet, your bet is settled as a single at SP on the remaining selection.

    Example: £1 Forecast A - B, where B is a non-runner, bet will be a £1 win single on A.

    Example 2: A combination forecast (6 bets, total stake £6) A - B - C, where C is a non-runner, will be settled as:

    A - C = Single on A

    A - B = Stands

    B - A = Stands

    B - C = Single on B

    C - A = Single on A

    C - B = Single on B

    Tricast

    If you have a non-runner in a tricast bet, your bet is settled as a forecast on the remaining selections in the order they were selected.

    For example: £1 Tricast A - B - C, where B is a non-runner, will be settled as a £1 forecast A - C.

    Combination bets follow the same rules, with each combination settled separately.

    Example 2: £1 Combination Tricast A - B - C, where C is a non-runner, will be settled as:

    A - B - C = Stands as A- B

    A - C - B = Stands as A - B

    B - A - C = Stands as B - A

    B - C - A = Stands as B - A

    C - A - B = Stands as A - B

    C - B - A = Stands as B - A

    If you have 2 non-runners in a tricast bet, your bet is settled as a single at SP on the remaining selection.

    Doubly Engaged: A bet placed online, on a doubly engaged horse, will only stand if it runs in the race displayed on the website. 

    a.) For bets placed via the telebetting service, if a specific race is requested then bets will stand on that race but bets will be void should the selection run in an alternative event. Should a specific race not be requested then when the bet is confirmed by the operator for a particular race the onus is on you / the customer to query the race at that time otherwise the bet will stand for the race given. 

     

    Reserves: If reserves are contained within the final declaration stage for a race, then we will offer an early price for all the declared runners, including the reserves. 

    a.) If a declared runner is announced as a non-runner, then we will revise the market. All bets struck prior to this announcement will then be subject to a Rule 4 deduction, so long as the price of the non-runner means that a Rule 4 deduction should apply. This Rule 4 deduction will be applied to all bets struck prior to the non-runner being announced, even if the non-runner was one of the reserves. 

    International Racing: We accept bets on horse racing from around the world. Bet acceptance rules differ from country to country. Customer facing screens both online and shops will clearly display which rules apply for any given event. In general the following rules will apply to bets placed on international horse racing: 

    a.) Early Prices: Where early prices are offered on international horse racing then standard place terms will apply and in the event of any non-runners rule 4 may apply. 

     b.) Industry Show Prices and Industry SPs : On selected international racing industry shows and SPs will be in operation. 

    • Where no industry show price or Coral early price has been taken then all bets will be settled at the industry SP. 
    • Bets on unnamed favourites are accepted. 
    • Straight Forecast (SFC) in operation. 
    • Tricast dividends will be returned in all handicaps with 8 or more declared runners and may also be returned for selected high profile races that do not fit this criteria. 
    • Double result does not apply. 
    • Standard place terms apply
    • In the event of any non-runners rule 4 may apply. 

    c.) Our Show Prices and SPS:  On selected international racing we covered where industry shows and SPs are not in operation our own shows and SPs may be implemented. 

    • Where no own show price or our own early price has been taken then all bets will be settled at our  SP.

    • Straight Forecast (SFC) in operation. 
    • Double result does not apply. 
    • Standard place terms apply.
    • In the event of any non-runners rule 4 may apply. 

    d.) Pari-Mutuel/Tote Betting: On selected international racing customers may place bets in accordance with local PMU/Tote rules. Customers must clearly request PMU/Tote on slips and Coral reserve the right to not offer betting at PMU/Tote returns. 

    • All bets will be settled as per local rules, including in the event of the coupling of horses. 
    • Any pari-mutuel bet taken in error on a race where we are not offering pari-mutuel betting will be considered void. 
    • PMU bets are not accepted on unnamed favourites. If accepted in error these bets will be regarded as non-runners. 
    • Double result does not apply. 

     

    Match Betting: Where we have selected match bets between two horses, in the same race, then the following conditions apply: 

    • A Match bet is based on one selection beating another according to the specific conditions advertised. Dead heat rules apply unless a tie price is made available (e.g. for a handicap match bet). 
    • One of the two selections in any match bet must complete the course for the bets to stand; otherwise bets are void. 
    • Both selections must start for bets to stand, otherwise Match Bets are void. 
    • Singles and upwards. 

     

    Aggregate Winning Distance Betting: A prediction on the total winning margins (distance between first and second placed horses) of each race at a particular meeting.

    e.g. Newmarket aggregate winning distances is the sum of the distances between the first and second horses in all races from Newmarket on that day.

    Six races won by 3 lengths, 1 length, ½ length, 6 lengths, 2 lengths and 1 length would equal a total of 13½ lengths.

    This market will be displayed in three bands.

    e.g. Newmarket Aggregate winning distances:

    Under x lengths 13/8

    Between x and y lengths 6/4

    Over y lengths 15/8

    For races won by less than a length, the following is awarded:

    Dead Heat = 0 lengths

    Nose = 0.05 lengths

    Short head = 0.1 lengths

    Head = 0.2 lengths

    Neck = 0.3 lengths

    ½ length = 0.5 lengths

    ¾ length = 0.75 lengths

    a.) The maximum winning distance for a National Hunt race is 30 lengths (including National Hunt Flat races). The maximum winning distance for a flat race is 12 lengths. In the event that only 1 horse finishes the course, the maximum distance for the race type is awarded. In the event of a walkover, the distance will be 5 lengths for a flat race and 12 lengths for a National Hunt race (including National Hunt Flat races).

    b.) If a meeting has one or two races abandoned or declared void, then bets will be settled with a default distance used for each abandoned or void race: 2 lengths for a flat race and 6 lengths for a National Hunt race (including National Hunt Flat races). If a meeting has three or more races abandoned or declared void, then all bets will be void unless the winning over bands for the market has already been established, in which case all bets will stand.

    c.) Any runner subsequently disqualified for taking the wrong course or carrying an incorrect weight will be ignored when the winning distance is calculated. The winning distance in such a race will be settled on the officially declared distance between the first two horses past the post that have followed the correct course and carried the correct weight. This only includes races on the regular card, it does not include charity races or any other race not run under the Rules of Racing.

    Winning Distance Specials: In this market we nominate a horse to win a specified race and you have the opportunity to bet on whether or not this horse will win the race by over or under a specified number of lengths. The following rules will apply to this market: 

    • all bets will be losers unless the nominated horse wins the race. However if the nominated horse is a non-runner then all bets will be void, unless it was an ante-post bet on an all-in run or not basis; 
    • if there are other non-runners in the race, then a rule 4 deduction may be applied to the prices for both winning over and under the specified number of lengths; 
    • all bets will be settled on a first past the post basis. However, if one of the first two horses home has taken the wrong course or is carrying the incorrect weight, then the winner will be deemed to be the first horse past the post who has taken the correct course. The winning distance will then be taken from the first horse to legitimately complete the course back to the second horse to legitimately complete the course; 
    • Dead-heat rules apply. If the nominated horse dead-heats with another runner then bets on the nominated horse to win under the specified distance will be settled as winners at half the initial stake. 

     

    Winning Horse and Distance: Predict both the winning horse and the winning distance from the runners and distances listed (distances offered may change depending on the race).

    In the event of any non-runners, a Rule 4 deduction may apply based on the price of the non-runner at the time of bet placement. Singles only, dead heat rules apply.

    Forecasts: Forecast bets are only accepted in races with at least three runners. The following rules will apply to this bet type: 

    a.) A "straight forecast" is a bet where you name two selections to come 1st and 2nd in the correct order for a specified event.

    b.)A "reversed forecast" is when you name two selections to finish 1st and 2nd in any order for a specific event.

    c.) A "combination forecast" is when you choose three or more selections in an event, with any of these to finish 1st and 2nd in the race.

    d.) Straight, reversed and combination forecasts are available on both horseracing and greyhound racing provided 3 or more entries run in any one race.

    e.) Forecast bets are settled in accordance with the industry Forecast Dividend, except where stated below:

    f.) If a Straight Forecast is accepted for a race where no dividend is declared, the bet will be settled as a win single on the first selection stated

    g.) If you select a Non-Runner in a Forecast bet, the bet will be settled as a single at SP on the remaining selection. If you select a Non-Runner in a Combination Forecast, all bets featuring the non-runner will be settled as singles.

    h.) You can bet forecast singles and forecast doubles and these can be placed as either straight, reversed, or combination forecast bets.

    i.) In races where only 1 horse finishes, forecast bets with the correct 1st place horse will be paid as an SP single on that selection. All other forecast bets will be losers.

    j.) Customers are not allowed to include 'unnamed favourite' in forecast bets online.

     

    Tricasts:  A tricast is a bet where you name the selections to finish 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the correct order for a specified race. All tricast bets are settled in accordance with the appropriate industry dividend except where stated below.

    a.) Horse Tricast bets are accepted on all Handicap, Nursery and Rated Stakes Handicap races where eight or more runners are declared and six or more actually run. Tricasts are also available on other advertised races outside of our Full Service.

    b.) If a tricast bet is accepted where less than 6 runners take part in the race, it will be settled as a Straight Forecast on the selections nominated to finish 1st and 2nd, with the selection nominated to finish 3rd ignored.

    c.) If a Tricast has been accepted for a race where no dividend is declared, it will be settled as a Straight Forecast on the selections nominated to finish 1st and 2nd. The 3rd is ignored for settlement purposes. If the bet is a Combination Tricast, every Tricast within that Combination will be settled as a Straight Forecast with the 3rd selection ignored for settlement purposes.

    d.) If one non-runner is selected, the tricast will be settled as a Straight Forecast on the remaining 2 selections.

    e.) If two non-runners are selected in a tricast, the bet will be settled as a single at SP on the remaining selection.

    f.) In races where fewer than 3 horses finish, tricast bets will be settled as follows:

    g.) When only 2 horses finish, tricast bets with the 1st and 2nd in the correct order will be paid as forecast winners. All other tricast bets will be losers.

    h.) When only 1 horse finishes, tricast bets with the correct 1st place horse will be paid as an SP single on that selection. All other tricast bets will be losers.

    I.) Customers are not allowed to include 'unnamed favourite' in tricast bets.

    j.) If your selection becomes a non-runner: Single Bet

    k.) If you have a non-runner, your bet is void and you receive your stake back. Please note, this does not apply if your bet was placed under Ante Post rules, in which case your bet will be settled as a loser.

    Tote Betting: The following rules govern the acceptance of bets for Tote pool betting: 

    • all Tote bets are placed directly into the live Tote pool. If the bets, for whatever reason, do not reach the pool then you will have your stake refunded but we will NOT be liable for any loss of winnings that you would have been eligible for had the bet reached the pool;

    • singles only are accepted for all Tote bets.

    • in bets with more than one leg non-runners are replaced by the unnamed favourite and any other bet containing a non-runner is void; 
    • if the favourite is withdrawn before coming under Starter's Orders and too late for a new favourite to be made, then the next shortest priced horse will be substituted. If two or more horses are returned at the next shortest price, then the one with the lowest race card number will be substituted; 
    • if a race is declared void, is not run or becomes a walkover the Jackpot, Placepot, Quadpot, Super 7 and Scoop 6 are settled on the remaining legs. 

    d.) Dead-Heats: The following rules govern dead heats: 

    • in the win pool the pool is divided into equal parts. In the place pool, if an extra place/s is created the amount of the pool allocated to that placing will be divided equally between the runners involved in the dead heat;

    e.) Tote Win: Simply pick the winner of the race. Singles only are accepted. 

    f.) Tote Place: With a minimum bet of £2 you can select a horse to be placed in a race. The place terms are dictated by the number of runners, as follows:

    Enhanced Racing Markets: We offer a range of horse racing enhanced markets. 

    a.) Win and Each-Way: Standard Coral prices will apply to these markets. In the event of non-runners Rule 4 deductions may apply. 

    b.) Best Price Guaranteed: Best Price Guaranteed will be offered as displayed on the website to online UK & Irish horse races bets only on the day of the event unless otherwise stated. 
    Where Best Price Guaranteed is offered bets will be settled at the Starting Price (SP) if the SP is bigger than the price originally taken. e.g Early/Board Price taken 4/1 and S.P is 5/1 we will pay out at the bigger price. In the event of a Rule 4 applying to a price taken we will pay at the bigger odds after the Rule 4 deduction has been made. Bets placed after off do not qualify. 
    Best Price Guaranteed does not apply to Green Tick, Ante-Post racing, Tote, pari-mutuel, betting without, win only, place only markets, match bets and insurance bets. We reserve the right to withdraw this guarantee at any time and to withdraw the BPG offer from a customer account at any time. The maximum benefit for BEST PRICE guarantee is capped at £50,000 per customer per day across all applicable channels 

    c.) Betting Without: This is a win only market in which one horse, generally the favourite, has been removed. A selection will be considered a winner if it either wins the race or finishes second to the horse that has been removed from the market.  In the event of a non-runner, a rule 4 deduction will apply to the “Betting Without” market, with the deduction based on the price of the withdrawn runner in the “Betting Without” market at the time of withdrawal.

    “Betting Without” bets are settled ignoring the finishing position of the nominated “Without” runner. Where the nominated “Without” selection is withdrawn before the start of a race, all bets on any of the field in this market stand.

    If 2 or fewer runners start the race, then bets will be void.

     

    d.) Win Only: This is a win only market, expressed in decimals. The decimal odds will always be equal to or greater than the equivalent Win and Each-Way price. If there are non-runners, a Rule 4 deduction may apply. 

    e.) Place Only: This market is sometimes referred to as ""Top 2/3/4 Finish. 
    f.) Place Only bets are not accepted unless specifically advertised, or unless they are Tote bets. Any place only bets accepted in error will be void win or lose. In Each Way bets if the amount staked on the place part of the bet is greater than the win part, the excess place stake will be made void. 
    Where Place Only betting is specifically advertised bets will be settled as follows: 
    The number of places paid will be in accordance with our normal each way place terms for horse racing. 
    All stakes on any non-runners will be refunded, however the number of places paid will not alter as a result of any non-runners. Bets on the remaining horses in the race will be subject to a deduction in accordance with the following table: 

    Place Only Price of Runner (at the time of withdrawal)

    Total deductions will not exceed 95p in the £. 

    In the event that the number of runners is the same or less then the number of places paid, all bets will be void. 
    This market will be settled on the Official Result only. 
    Dead-heat rules apply. 

    g.) Extra Places: The race will revert to standard place terms if the field size is reduced to or below the selected number of runners ( varies race-to-race). 

    h.) Stalls Group Betting: Bets placed on Stalls Group Betting markets are subject to Dead Heat rules. Simply pick the winning stalls group. Only singles will be accepted. 

    i.) Betting Without: In markets where we are "Betting Without" a nominated selection, the place terms will be based on the remaining number of runners excluding the nominated selection. 

    j.) Any rule 4 deductions will still apply and be based on the price of the withdrawn runner in that market at the time of withdrawal. 

    "Betting Without" bets are settled ignoring the finishing position of the nominated "Without" runner. Where the nominated "Without" selection is withdrawn before the start of a race, all bets on any of the field in this market stand. 

    If 2 or fewer runners start the race, then bets will be void. 

     

    Favourites Index : The 'Favourites Index' market relates to the aggregate performance of favourites over the course of a race meeting. The scoring system is as follows: 

    • Win = 25 points 
    • 2nd = 10 points 
    • 3rd = 5 points 

    In the case of joint or co favourites, the favourite will be deemed to be the one with the lowest trap number. In the event of no Starting Price being returned, the favourite will be the runner with the lowest price as published in the Racing Post. 

    If there is a dead heat for any placing, the points for these runners will be added together and divided equally between the number of positions. All bets will be settled on the official result.  

    If the meeting has 3 or more races abandoned or declared void, then all bets will be void unless a winning market has already been established, in which case all bets stand. When only 1 or 2 races are abandoned or declared void, bets will be settled with a default figure of 10 points applied to each abandoned or void race. In the event of a walkover, bets will be settled with a default figure of 10 points applied to that race. 

    If the favourite is withdrawn at the start of the race and no new market is formed, points will be awarded dependent on the price of the favourite at the time of withdrawal: 

    • Evens or less = 15 points 
    • 11/10 to 9/2 = 10 points 
    • 5/1 or bigger = 5 points 

    If the favourite starts but does not finish the course, no points are awarded. 

     

    Horse Racing Specials: We offer a variety of special bets.
    a.) Top Jockey/Trainer/Owner: Where there is a tie, governing body rules will be used to separate the selections. For example in Top Jockey, if two selections have equal number of wins, the selection with the highest number of second place finishes will be the winner, or where tied again, the number of third place finishes will be used to declare the winner. 

    b.) Top 'Festival/Meeting' Jockey/Trainer: Where there is a tie, governing body rules will be used to separate the selections. For example in Top Jockey, if two selections have equal number of wins, the selection with the highest number of second place finishes will be the winner, or where tied again, the number of third place finishes will be used to declare the winner. 

    c.) Points betting: We sometimes use a 'points system' for certain bets. In these cases, five points are awarded for a win, three for a second place and one for a third place. 
    d.) Jockey Specials: Bets are accepted on jockey specials markets on the understanding that a winning outcome is possible in the given market at the time the bet was confirmed. 
    If a subsequent factor, event or change of circumstances means that a winning outcome is no longer possible, bets placed on jockey specials markets will have lost. 
    The given rider must take part in at least one race at the meeting, otherwise all bets are void. 
    Walkovers will not count towards the jockey's winners' total. 

    Faller Insurance: This market offers slightly shorter odds on the outright market race selections, on the basis that bets will be refunded on horses that are officially deemed 'fallers'. If your horse falls, or your jockey is 'unseated' or brought down, you will receive a refund. 

    Terms: 

    • Pulling Up- If the horse pulls up with jockey still seated then you will not get your money back. 
    • Other Non-Finishing Reasons- If the horse fails to finish for any reason other than falling, unseating or being brought down then you will not qualify for the refund. 
    • Stewards' Decision- This is final and binding for settlement. 
    • Refund- Bets will be made void on those runners deemed as 'fallers'. 

    Standard Non-Runner, Rule 4 and Dead Heat rules will apply to all Faller Insurance markets. Where a Rule 4 applies, it will be based on the withdrawn selection's price in the Outright winner market (not the Faller Insurance market price). 

    Best Odds Guaranteed does not apply. 

    Place Insurance:  Insurance - 2 Place / 3 Place / 4 Place. All runners offered at shorter odds than the outright winner market, with the 'Insurance' that you will get your money back if your selection doesn't win but finishes within the number of places stipulated. So if your selection wins, you'll be paid out at the price struck; if your selection finishes in the stipulated places, your bet will be voided and your stake returned to you; and if your selection finishes anywhere else, then your bet will be a loser. 

    More than one market may be offered per race, and the minimum number of runners required in each race to offer the markets are as follows: 

    • Insurance - 2 Place: 5 runners 
    • Insurance - 3 Place: 8 runners 
    • Insurance - 4 Place: 16 runners 

    In the event of non-runners the number of Insured Places stand, except in cases where the field is reduced to the point it equals the number of places paid, then all bets on Insurance markets will be void. 

    Standard Non-Runner, Rule 4 and Dead-heat rules will apply to all Place Insurance markets. Where a Rule 4 applies, it will be based on the withdrawn selection's price in the Outright winner market (not the Place Insurance market price). 
    Late Bets: All bets placed after the official 'off' time will be voided unless Betting In Play is available, with the following exception: For all horse races that do not offer betting in running, an acceptance 'grace period' of three seconds will apply. This means that bets will be accepted up to a maximum of three seconds after the official off time. Bets placed after this time will be declared void, irrespective of whether the bet wins or loses.  

    Horse Racing Betting In Play: Betting in play will be available on selected races up to the following grace periods (in seconds) after the official off time.

    Win or Each way - Extra Place: The Win or Each Way - Extra Place market is a separate market that gives customers the opportunity to place bets on a race with an extra place to the main Win or Each Way market. Much in the same way as the core Win or Each Way market, the each way terms taken at the time of bet are subject to change based on Non Runners. In general, the each way terms will be offered and settled with one more place than the standard number of places for that race (please see the table below for an overview).

    Example

    Race originally has 9 runners

    Standard Win or E/W:              Place terms = 3 places, 1/5 odds

    Win or E/W – Extra Place:       Place terms = 4 places, 1/5 odds

    A NR occurs so there are only 8 runners. As this doesn’t trigger a change in the number of places / terms available in the core Win or E/W market, there is no change to the number of places / terms in the Win or E/W -Extra Place market.

    A second NR occurs so there are now just 7 runners remaining in the race. This does trigger a change in the number of places available in the core Win or E/W market and consequently this triggers a change in the number of places in the Win or E/W Extra Place market. The new number of places / terms would be as follows:

    Win or E/W:                                  Place terms = 2 places, 1/4 odds

    Win or E/W – Extra Place:       Place terms = 3 places, 1/4 odds

    Should the final number of runners in the race be 2 then both the win and place part of each way bets on the Win or Each Way – Extra Place market will be settled as ‘win only’ at SP. 

    In the event of non-runners occurring, Rule 4s may be applied. The deduction amount will be taken from the standard Rule 4 table using the price of the withdrawn horse from the Win or Each Way – Extra Place market at the time the bet was struck (not the price of the withdrawn horse from the standard Win or Each Way market). See the example below: 

    Example

    There is a race with 4 runners which is priced as follows:

    Main Win or Each Way market

    Horse A: 5/6

    Horse B: 3/1

    Horse C: 6/1

    Horse D: 8/1

    Win or Each Way – Extra Place market

    Horse A: 4/6

    Horse B: 11/4

    Horse C: 5/1

    Horse D: 7/1

    A customer places a bet on Horse B at 11/4 in the Win or Each Way – Extra Place market. At some point after the bet is struck, Horse A is withdrawn from the race. This triggers a 55p Rule 4 to be applied to the customer’s bet (because this is the correct Rule 4 deductions for a horse with a price of 4/6).

    In the event of dead heats (for the winner of the race or any of the places) standard dead heat rules will apply. 

    In the event of a void race / meeting abandonment all bets on this market whereby an official result has yet to be declared will be settled as void. 

    Only singles will be accepted on this market.

    Horse Race Special Handicap Betting: We will offer a special distance handicap market in certain races. The idea of the handicap market is that each horse improves their finishing result in the actual race by the distance they have been allotted on the handicap. The result of the handicap market is the finishing result once all of the individual horse handicaps have been added to the final result of the race.  If a horse comes under starters orders but fails to finish the race for any reason, they will be a losing bet in this market. If a horse is declared a NR prior to the race, Rule 4 may apply to this market and the horse will simply be removed from calculations when working out the final result, with the other horses’ distance handicaps remaining unaffected. Dead heat rules apply. Result will be settled on the ‘First Past The Post’ result and subsequent amendments will not affect the result of this market*. (*If a horse has carried the wrong weight or taken the wrong course, it will be deemed a loser in this market and ignored in the settlement of the result). 

    Example 

    We offered the following handicap on the Middle Park Stakes 2018. 

    Horse Distance Handicap 
    Ten Sovereigns Scratch (0 lengths) 
    Jash +1.5 lengths 
    Emaraaty Ana +2.5 lengths 
    Rumble In The Jungle +2.5 lengths 
    Legends Of War +3.5 lengths 
    Rumble In The Jungle +4 lengths 
    Marie’s Diamond +6 lengths 
    Space Traveller +6 lengths 

    The final result of the actual race was as follows 

    Pos Horse Distance To Winner 
    1 Ten Sovereigns 0 
    2 Jash 0.5 lengths 
    3 Rumble In The Jungle 4 lengths 
    4 Marie’s Diamond 4.5 lengths 
    5 Emaraaty Ana 5.25 lengths 
    6 Legends Of War 6.75 lengths 
    7 Sergei Prokofiev 7.25 lengths 
    8 Space Traveller 7.5 lengths 

    To calculate the final handicap score we simply subtract each horse’s ‘Distance Handicap’ from their ‘Distance To Winner’ result. For example: Jash finished 0.5 lengths behind the winner and had a handicap of +1.5 lengths, so his final handicap score would be 0.5 – 1.5 = -1 length

    The winner of the handicap market is the horse with the lowest handicap score and in this example, Marie’s Diamond was the winner of the market. (Note - dead heat rules apply on this market and there was a dead heat for 3rd place in this example). 

    Pos Horse Final Handicap Score
    1 Marie’s Diamond -1.5 lengths 
    2 Jash -1 length 
    3DH Ten Sovereigns 0 lengths 
    3DH Rumble In The Jungle 0 lengths 
    5 Space Traveller +1.5 lengths 
    Emaraaty Ana +2.75 lengths 
    7 Legends Of War +3.25 lengths 
    8 Sergei Prokofiev +4.75 lengths 

     

    Meeting Aggregate Favourite's Points Based Performance: Predict the range that contains the aggregate number of points awarded for favourites at the specified meeting. Points are allocated for the finishing position of the favourite in each race using the following points system: first place 25 points | second place 10 points | third place 5 points 
    a.) Bets are accepted for horse race meetings held under the rules of the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) and Horse Racing Ireland (HRI) and are settled on the official result. 
    b.) Bets are accepted at the advertised special price. All odds are subject to fluctuation and bets placed will be settled at the price at the time the bet was confirmed. 
    c.) First past the post does not count for bets placed on this market. 
    d.) Charity races and Arab races do not count for bets placed on this market. 
    e.) If any race at the selected meeting finishes in a dead heat, the points awarded will be divided equally across each affected place. Example: if a favourite is involved in a dead heat for first and second place, the points awarded will be 17.5 (half of 25 points for first place plus half of 10 points for second place). 
    f.) If any race at the selected meeting has only one runner (also known as a walk-over), all bets placed on this market will be awarded 25 points. 
    g.) If joint or co-favourites are returned in any race at the selected meeting, the favourite will count as the horse with the lowest race card number. 
    h.) If the favourite is withdrawn from the race before coming under starter’s orders, and a new market is not formed, the second favourite will count in this market. 
    i.) Where a market is offered for one meeting, if one or two races are abandoned or made void at the selected meeting, all bets placed on this market will be awarded a default figure of 10 points for each abandoned or void race. 
    j.) Where a market is offered for one meeting if three or more races are abandoned or made void at the selected meeting, all bets placed on this market will be void unless the over selection in the market has been won. 
       If three or more races are abandoned or made void at the selected meeting and the over selection in the market has been won, bets placed on that selection in this market will have already won and will be settled as winners. Bets placed on other selections in this market will have already lost. 
       If three or more races are abandoned or made void at the selected meeting and the over selection in the market has not been won, bets placed on this market will be void. 
    k.) Where a market is offered for two or more meetings combined, a default figure of 10 points will be used for every abandoned or void race. 
    l.) If a Coral SP is returned this will take precedence over any other declared SP and the favourite will be determined by the final show of betting. 
    m.) If no SP is returned the favourite will be determined by the final show of betting transmitted by our service provider. 
    n.) Adjustments to settlement will not be made for amended results or adjudications made by governing bodies after the weigh-in when the official result is declared. 

    Meeting Aggregate Winner's SP Market Rules: Predict the range that contains the combined SP (starting price) total of winning horses at a specified meeting. The combined SP will be calculated by awarding points for the SP of each winning horse. Example: 1/2 = 0.50 point | 10/11 = 0.91 point | Evs = 1.00 point | 6/4 = 1.50 points | 15/8 = 1.88 points | 2/1 = 2 points | 5/2 = 2.50 points | 5/1 = 5.00 points | 10/1 = 10.00 points | 25/1 = 25.00 points 
    a.) Bets are accepted for horse race meetings held under the rules of the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) and Horse Racing Ireland (HRI) and are settled on the official result. 
    b.) Bets are accepted at the advertised special price. All odds are subject to fluctuation and bets placed will be settled at the price at the time the bet was confirmed. 
    c.) First past the post does not count for bets placed on this market. 
    d.) Charity races and Arab races do not count for bets placed on this market. 
    e.) If any race at the selected meeting finishes in a dead heat, the points awarded will be divided equally across each affected place. Example: if two horses are involved in a dead heat for first and second place priced at 3/1 and 7/1, the points awarded will be 5.00 (half of 3.00 points plus half of 7.00 points). 
    f.) If any race at the selected meeting has only one runner (also known as a walk-over), all bets placed on this market will be awarded a default of 1.00 point. 
    g.) If one or two races are abandoned or made void at the selected meeting, all bets placed on this market will be awarded a default point total, which is calculated by halving the number of declared runners at the time the race was abandoned or made void. Example: a race with 10 declared runners will be awarded 5.00 points and a race with seven declared runners will be awarded 3.50 points etc. 
    h.) Where a market is offered for one meeting if three or more races are abandoned or made void at the selected meeting, all bets placed on this market will be void unless the over selection in the market has been won. 
       If three or more races are abandoned or made void at the selected meeting and the over selection in the market has been won, bets placed on that selection in this market will have already won and will be settled as winners. Bets placed on other selections in this market will have already lost. 
       If three or more races are abandoned or made void at the selected meeting and the over selection in the market not been won, bets placed on this market will be void. 
    i.) Adjustments to settlement will not be made for amended results or adjudications made by governing bodies after the weigh-in when the official result is declared. 

    Any number of horses to win: This bet is for a number of horses to win from a number of selections e.g. Any 2 horses from 3 horses to win. All selections must run for these bets to stand.  If any named horses do run then the bet is void

    Trotting: All bets are settled according to the declared official result. No subsequent change to the result will affect the settlement of the race in question. All bets on Trotting are accepted at stated prices only. This is true of win only bets, place only bets and any other betting market. Multiple bets will be settled as standard accumulators. 

    a.) Win Only Bets: Win only bets are available on all trotting races displayed on our websites. 

    Please note that Each Way bets on Trotting races are not available. 

    b.) Place Only Bets: Place only bets are offered for the majority of Trotting races. However, the number of places available are affected by the number of runners taking part in the race and these terms are as follows: 

    • All races of 8 or more runners - 3 places 
    • All races of 4, 5, 6 and 7 runners - 2 places 
    • Races with less than 4 runners - Place betting will not be offered for races of less than 4 runners. If a race originally has 4 or more runners but there are enough non-runners to reduce the field to less than 4, all bets previously accepted as place only bets will be void and stakes returned 

    c.) Daily Double: As well as being able to place multiple bets by combining selections from different races, it is also possible to bet on Daily Doubles when this event is offered. The Daily Double involves two specifically nominated races each day. Returns for the Daily Double will be based not on the multiplied returns of the two winners but will instead be based on the official returns for the Daily Double. If there is a dead heat for first place in either or both of the Daily Double races, then all horses involved in the dead heat are considered to be winners of their race. 

    d.) Dead Heats: Dead heat is a term that describes when two or more participants in an event tie. If a "dead-heat" 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-heat", the stake is proportioned accordingly. 

    e.)Win: If two or more horses dead heat for first place, then each horse in the dead heat is a winner. 

    f.)Place : If two horses dead heat for first place, they fill the first two places. If three horses dead heat for first place, they fill the first three places, and so on. If two horses dead heat for second place, they fill the second and third places. If three horses dead heat for second place, they fill the second, third and fourth places. 

    g.) Non Runners: In the event of a non runner participant the odds on the remaining runners are reduced in accordance with Tattersalls Rule 4 (c) as outlined below. 

    All bets on a horse declared a non runner are void and stakes will be refunded. Any bets on the Daily Double are void if either horse included in the bet is a non runner.

    Winning Distance (Individual Meeting)

    A prediction on the total winning margins (distance between first and second placed horses) of each race at a particular meeting. 
     
    e.g. Romford aggregate winning distances is the sum of the distances between the first and second dogs in all races from Romford on that day or that card 
     
    Six races won by 3 lengths, 1 length, ½ length, 6 lengths, 2 lengths and 1 length would equal a total of 13½ lengths. 
     
    This market will be displayed in three bands. 
     
    e.g. Romford Aggregate winning distances: 
     
    Under x lengths 13/8 
    Between x and y lengths 6/4 
    Over y lengths 15/8 
    For races won by less than a length, the following is awarded: 
     
    Dead Heat = 0 lengths 
    Short head = 0.1 lengths 
    Head = 0.2 lengths 
    Neck = 0.3 lengths 
    ½ length = 0.5 lengths 
    ¾ length = 0.75 lengths 
     
    The maximum winning distance for a race is 10 lengths. 
     
    If a meeting has one or two walkovers, races abandoned or declared void, then bets will be settled with a default distance used for each walkover, abandoned or void race: 2 lengths. If more than two races are walkovers, abandoned or void, then all bets will be void, unless the winning over bands for the market has already been established, in which case all bets will stand. 

     

    Greyhound Derivatives Betting

    Tote Betting

    General 

    All Tote Pool bets are placed directly into the live Tote Pools. In circumstances where bets do not reach the pools, customers will have their money refunded and neither Tote Pool nor Coral will be liable for any loss of winnings that would have been due had the bet reached the pool. 

    Below is a summary of the rules relating to Tote Pool bets. Tote Pool On Course rules apply to any point not covered in the rules summary below. Tote Pool On Course rules can be obtained from the Horserace Totalisator Board, Tote House, 74 Upper Richmond Road, London SW15 2SU. 

    Bets that are accepted manually and not placed into the pool will be settled in the following ways: 

    · Tote Win - Bets will be settled against the dividend that is declared. Where no dividend is declared, we will settle the bet at the starting price returned. 

    · Tote Place - Bets will be settled against the dividend that is declared. Where no dividend is declared, the bet will be void. 

    · Tote Placepot - Bets will be settled against the dividend that is declared. 

    · Tote Jackpot - Bets will be settled against the dividend that is declared. Where no dividend is declared, the bet will be settled as a win starting price accumulator. 

    Tote Win/Tote Place 

    The Tote Win pool is operated on all races of 2 or more runners unless otherwise stated. The Tote Place pool is operated on all races of 5 or more runners unless otherwise stated. You may choose a dog to win or just to be placed. More than one Win and/or Place selection can be made in each race. The finishing positions which constitute a place in any race, unless otherwise stated, are as follows: 

    · 5 - 6 runners 1st & 2nd 

    The minimum stake is £1 and any increase needs to be in £1 increments. 

    You can select the dog by name or trap number. If you select the name and the dog is classified as a non-runner, your stake will be refunded. If you select the trap number, your bet will stand if a reserve is entered to run. 

    Tote Placepot 

    The Tote Placepot is operated on selected British Greyhound meetings. 

    The aim is to select a dog to be placed in each of the first six races at a meeting, unless otherwise stated. The finishing positions which constitute a place in any leg, unless otherwise stated, are as follows: 

    · 2 - 4 runners 1st 

    · 5 - 6 runners 1st & 2nd 

    Single line entries are accepted with a minimum stake of £1, rising thereafter in multiples of 10p. Permutation entries are accepted with a minimum stake of 10p, rising thereafter in multiples of 10p, providing a minimum total of £2 is staked. 

    Bets on the un-named favourite are accepted and are represented by the starting price favourite. 

    Bets are accepted on the trap number and not the greyhound name. If for any reason a greyhound is withdrawn in any leg and is replaced by a registered reserve, then bets will stand on that reserve. If a greyhound is withdrawn and is not replaced by a reserve, then selections on that trap number are transferred to the starting price favourite. 

    When there are joint or co-favourites, the dog with the lowest racecard number will be taken. Should the favourite be withdrawn before coming under starter's orders but too late for the SP market to be re-formed, the dog with the shortest returned starting price will be used, but should there be two or more runners at the shortest starting price, the one with the lowest racecard number will be taken. If there are no starting prices returned, the first runner quoted in the Racing Post betting forecast will be substituted. If there is no betting forecast and hence no substitute dog can be determined in accordance with any specific rules, then the runner with the highest number of Tote Win pool units in the relevant race will be substituted. If two or more runners have an equal number of Tote Win pool units then the one with the lowest racecard number will substitute. If no Tote Win pool is operated then the lowest racecard number will substitute. 

    If any leg of the Tote Placepot is a walkover, or is void, or is abandoned, or there is no official result declared for any reason, and is not re-ran on the same day, then the pool will be settled on the remaining legs, i.e. every selection in that leg is deemed to have been successful, provided at least one leg of the bet takes place. If none of the legs of the Tote Placepot take place, the pool will be declared void and all stakes refunded. Provided at least one leg takes place, a dividend will be declared, subject to Tote Pool rules. 

    If in any leg the official result is that there are no finishers, the pool will be settled on the remaining legs, i.e. every selection is deemed to have been successful. 

    Tote Jackpot 

    The Tote Jackpot is operated on selected meetings, nominated by Tote Pool unless otherwise stated. 

    The aim is to select the winning dog in each of the first six races at a meeting nominated by Tote Pool, unless otherwise stated. 

    Single line entries are accepted with a minimum stake of £1, rising thereafter in multiples of 50p. Permutation entries are accepted with a minimum stake of 50p per line, rising thereafter in multiples of 50p providing a minimum total of £2 is staked. 

    Bets on the un-named favourite are accepted and are represented by the starting price favourite. 

    Bets are accepted on the trap number and not the greyhound name. If for any reason a greyhound is withdrawn in any leg and is replaced by a registered reserve, then bets will stand on that reserve. If a greyhound is withdrawn and is not replaced by a reserve, then selections on that trap number are transferred to the starting price favourite. 

    When there are joint or co-favourites, the dog with the lowest racecard number will be taken. Should the favourite be withdrawn before coming under starter's orders but too late for the SP market to be re-formed, the dog with the shortest returned starting price will be used, but should there be two or more runners at the shortest starting price, the one with the lowest racecard number will be taken. If there are no starting prices returned, the first runner quoted in the Racing Post betting forecast will be substituted. If there is no betting forecast and hence no substitute dog can be determined in accordance with any specific rules then the runner with the highest number of Tote Win pool units in the relevant race will be substituted. If two or more runners have an equal number of Tote Win pool units then the one with the lowest racecard number will substitute. If no Tote Win pool is operated then the lowest racecard number will substitute. 

    If any leg of the Tote Jackpot is a walkover, or is void, or is abandoned, or there is no official result declared for any reason, and is not re-ran on the same day, then the pool will be settled on the remaining legs, i.e. every selection in that leg is deemed to have been successful, provided at least one leg of the bet takes place. If none of the legs of the Tote Jackpot take place, the pool will be declared void and all stakes refunded. Provided at least one leg takes place, a dividend will be declared, subject to Tote Pool rules. 

    If in any leg the official result is that there are no finishers, the pool will be settled on the remaining legs, i.e. every selection is deemed to have been successful. 
     
    Australian Greyhounds 
     
    The Greyhounds rules also apply to Australian Greyhounds however there is one slight difference. In Australian Greyhound Racing Reserves run carrying the Jacket 9 or 10 BUT they run out of the traps of the non-runners. Therefore, any bets placed on the TRAP MARKET correspond to the Greyhound running out of that trap number irrespective of if they carry Jacket 9 or 10.

    Rules Detail

    Selection

    Selections for each of the totescoop6 legs must be indicated by their racecard number, horse name or the un-named favourite. Should the racecard number of an overnight-declared runner be allocated to a reserve horse, the reserve horse(s) will be re-numbered sequentially in line with totepool On Course Rules.

    Starting Price Favourite

    Should a selection be omitted or become a non-runner, the Starting Price favourite will be substituted. Where there are joint favourites, the joint favourite with the lowest racecard number will be taken.

    Should the favourite be withdrawn before coming under Starters Orders and too late for a new favourite to be made, the horse returned at the next shortest price will be taken. Where two or more horses are returned at the next shortest price, the one with the lowest racecard number will be taken. If no Starting Price is returned the first actual runner quoted in the Racing Post betting forecast will be taken. Should the Racing Post not publish a betting forecast, settlement will be made in line with totepool On Course Rules.

    Win Fund

    To win a dividend from the Win Fund, the winning horse in each of the day's designated totescoop6 legs must be correctly selected. If there is no outright winner of the Win Fund, the respective portion of the pool will be rolled over to the next totescoop6 Win Fund as decided by totepool. Win Fund winners having correctly selected each of the six winners of the totescoop6 legs qualify to compete in the Bonus Fund, see below, provided they register with the totescoop6 Bonus Race Hotline within the required deadline.

    Place Fund

    To win a dividend from the Place Fund, a horse on which a toteplace dividend would normally be declared must be selected in each of the day's nominated totescoop6 legs or where due to insufficient runners no Place pool is operated on a totescoop6 leg, the horse winning that leg must be selected. If there is no outright winner of the Place Fund, the respective portion of the pool will be rolled over to the next totescoop6 Place Fund as decided by the totepool.

    Bonus Fund

    To win a dividend from the Bonus Fund the winning horse of the Bonus Race nominated by totepool must be correctly selected.

    Those eligible to participate for the Bonus Fund must call the Bonus Race Hotline (0800 028 4418) to register as a Bonus Race qualifier before 6pm on the Thursday prior to Saturday's nominated Bonus Race. Failure to register will result in the claimant being unable to compete in the Bonus Fund. Claimants should also state if they have more than one winning line as they will be entitled to one entry per winning line.

    Qualifiers who register to play for the Bonus Fund may be asked to agree to full media publicity. Qualifiers who agree to media publicity may be requested by totepool to appear at a racecourse or other venue in which case totepool will arrange and pay for reasonable transport and accommodation costs.

    If there are no registered qualifiers for the Bonus Fund or no registered qualifier selects the winner of the Bonus Race, the Bonus Fund will be rolled over to future totescoop6 Bonus Fund(s) as decided by totepool.

    The nominated Bonus Race will be announced by 12.30pm on the Friday prior to the Bonus Race and registered qualifiers must call the Bonus Race Hotline (0800 028 4418) again between 12.30pm and 6pm that Friday or on Saturday between 9am and one hour before the advertised 'off' of the Bonus Race to place their bet selection (or selections if they have more than one winning line).

    It is the responsibility of registered qualifiers to register their selections on the Bonus Race Hotline (0800 028 4418). In the event of a selection not being received before the required time, the Starting Price favourite, in accordance with the selection rules above, will be allocated.

    Should a Bonus Race bet selection become a non-runner, registered qualifiers will have the option up to 30 minutes prior to the advertised 'off' of the Bonus Race to make a new selection. Should no new selection be received or should a selection become a non-runner less than 30 minutes before the advertised 'off-time' of the Bonus Race, then the Starting Price favourite, in accordance with the selection rules above, will be allocated.

    In the event of the nominated Bonus Race not taking place or being declared void for any reason, the totepool reserves the right to nominate an alternative race on the same or a future day as the Bonus Race.

    In the event of a totescoop6 leg being declared void, the scoop6 will operate on the remaining legs. Should totescoop6 be decided on less than six legs the Bonus Fund will not operate and that day's Bonus Fund (excluding any carry-over, which will be rolled over to future Bonus fund(s)) will be divided equally between the Win Fund and Place Fund.

    Starting Fund

    In any totescoop6 pool, 5% of the amount invested will be allocated to the totescoop6 starting fund. These funds will be held in reserve until after the totescoop6 win fund is next won. At this point, the entire amount held in the totescoop6 starting fund will be carried forward to the next totescoop6 win fund in order to boost the size of that fund.

    If none of the legs of the totescoop6 take place, the pool will be declared void and all stakes refunded.

    If one or more legs are abandoned, whether before or after the first leg has begun, the funds will solely be comprised of money invested on that day’s totescoop6 pool. Any stakes brought forward in rollovers from the previous week in the totescoop6 win fund or totescoop6 place fund will roll directly into the respective funds in the following week’s totescoop6. If the totescoop6 is decided on fewer than six legs, then winners of the totescoop6 win fund will not be eligible to go for the bonus fund the following week. The day’s stakes which would otherwise have been allocated to the bonus fund will be redistributed between the totescoop6 win fund and the totescoop6 place fund in the appropriate ratio shown above.

    Special Pools Operated

    From time to time totepool may operate standalone totescoop6 pools with separate rollover arrangements. These may be subject to some rule variations. Terms will be advertised in the national and/or sporting press and/or the totesport website.

    SuperScoop6

    The SuperScoop6 is a bet closely related to the Scoop 6 and is operated on selected races on non-Saturdays, most likely during ‘Festival’ meetings on six races nominated by totepool as indicated in the national and sporting press, unless otherwise stated.

    The aim is:

    • To select the winning horse in each of 6 specific races nominated by totepool in order to qualify for a dividend from the SuperScoop6 win fund.
    • To select a horse to be placed in each of the same 6 races in order to qualify for a dividend from the SuperScoop6 place fund.

    Winners of the SuperScoop6 win fund who have correctly selected the winning horse in all 6 legs of a SuperScoop6, will have an opportunity to compete in the SuperScoop6 shootout at the end of the season.

    For more information on the SuperScoop6 Shootout Fund, please click here.

    The minimum stake unit is £2 and permutation bets in units of £2 are accepted.

    The SuperScoop6 pool will be allocated to three different prize funds: SuperScoop6 win fund, SuperScoop6 place fund and the SuperScoop6 shootout fund in the ratio 7:4:3 respectively.

    Bets on the un-named favourite are accepted and are represented by the Starting Price favourite.

    Bets 'stand' on horses which do not compete after coming under Starter's Orders.

    Non-runner selections are not void but are replaced by the Starting Price favourite.

    When there are joint or co-favourites, the horse with the lowest racecard number will be taken. Should the favourite be withdrawn before coming under starter’s orders but too late for the SP market to be re-formed, the horse with the shortest returned Starting Price will be used, but should there be two or more runners at the shortest Starting Price, the one with the lowest racecard number will be taken. If there are no Starting Prices returned, the first runner quoted in the Racing Post betting forecast will be substituted. If there is no betting forecast and hence no substitute horse can be determined in accordance with any specific rules then the runner with the highest number of totewin pool units in the relevant race will be substituted. If two or more runners have an equal number of totewin pool units then the one with the lowest racecard number will substitute. If no totewin pool is operated then the lowest racecard number will substitute.

    If any leg of the SuperScoop6 is a walkover, or is void, or is abandoned, or there is no official result declared for any reason, and is not re-ran on the same day, then the SuperScoop6 win fund and the SuperScoop6 place fund will be settled on the remaining legs, i.e. every selection in that leg is deemed to have been successful in both the SuperScoop6 win fund and the SuperScoop6 place fund, provided at least one leg of the bet takes place.

    Ireland Specific Tote Bets

    • Pick Six

      Aim:

      The Tote Pick Six involves picking the winners of six consecutive races, which are always races 1 to 6. The Pick Six must be placed before the "off" of race 1. This challenging bet will reap significant rewards.

      Cost:

      Calculating the cost of your Pick Six bet is straightforward. Multiply the number of horses you pick in each race by one another. This will give you the number of units you have. Then multiply this figure by your selected stake. For example:

      The minimum stake on a single line Pick Six (i.e. a Pick Six where you have only selected one runner per race) is €1. The minimum stake for Permutation Pick Six bets (i.e. a Pick Six where you have selected various amount of runners) is €0.50, rising thereafter in multiples of €0.50. The maximum unit stake is €25. Pick Six dividends are declared to a €1 stake.

      Pick Six Rules:

      In the instance where there is no winner of the Tote Pick Six, the total pool is rolled over to the next applicable race meeting.

      Non-Runners and withdrawn horses are transferred to the SP Favourite or in the case of joint favourites the runner with the lowest race card number.

      Please note that in instances where all legs of a Pick 6 bet are not run (due to cancellation) and the pool(s) are guaranteed for a specific amount and the guarantee is not reached the pool and winning dividends will be calculated on the actual amount on the day (including any rollover to the pool if it is applicable).

    • Super Trifecta

      The Super Trifecta is a pool that is available on the 6th race every Sunday. The pool is made up of a portion of the Trifecta rollovers from other races during the week.

    Greyhound Tote Betting

    General

    All Tote Pool bets are placed directly into the live Tote Pools. In circumstances where bets do not reach the pools, customers will have their money refunded and neither Tote Pool nor Ladbrokes will be liable for any loss of winnings that would have been due had the bet reached the pool.

    Below is a summary of the rules relating to Tote Pool bets. Tote Pool On Course rules apply to any point not covered in the rules summary below. Tote Pool On Course rules can be obtained from the Horserace Totalisator Board, Tote House, 74 Upper Richmond Road, London SW15 2SU.

    Bets that are accepted manually and not placed into the pool will be settled in the following ways:

    • Tote Win - Bets will be settled against the dividend that is declared. Where no dividend is declared, we will settle the bet at the Starting Price returned.
    • Tote Place - Bets will be settled against the dividend that is declared. Where no dividend is declared, the bet will be void.
    • Tote Placepot - Bets will be settled against the dividend that is declared.
    • Tote Jackpot - Bets will be settled against the dividend that is declared. Where no dividend is declared, the bet will be settled as a win Starting Price accumulator.

    Tote Win/Tote Place

    The Tote Win pool is operated on all races of 2 or more runners unless otherwise stated. The Tote Place pool is operated on all races of 5 or more runners unless otherwise stated. You may choose a dog to win or just to be placed. More than one Win and/or Place selection can be made in each race. The finishing positions which constitute a place in any race, unless otherwise stated, are as follows:

    • 5 - 6 runners 1st & 2nd

    The minimum stake is £1 and any increase needs to be in £1 increments.

    You can select the dog by name or trap number. If you select the name and the dog is classified as a non runner, your stake will be refunded. If you select the trap number, your bet will stand if a reserve is entered to run.

    Tote Placepot

    The Tote Placepot is operated on selected British Greyhound meetings.

    The aim is to select a dog to be placed in each of the first six races at a meeting, unless otherwise stated. The finishing positions which constitute a place in any leg, unless otherwise stated, are as follows:

    • 2 - 4 runners 1st
    • 5 - 6 runners 1st & 2nd

    Single line entries are accepted with a minimum stake of £1, rising thereafter in multiples of 10p. Permutation entries are accepted with a minimum stake of 10p, rising thereafter in multiples of 10p, providing a minimum total of £2 is staked.

    Bets on the un-named favourite are accepted and are represented by the Starting Price favourite.

    Bets are accepted on the trap number and not the greyhound name. If for any reason a greyhound is withdrawn in any leg and is replaced by a registered reserve, then bets will stand on that reserve. If a greyhound is withdrawn and is not replaced by a reserve, then selections on that trap number are transferred to the Starting Price favourite.

    When there are joint or co-favourites, the dog with the lowest racecard number will be taken. Should the favourite be withdrawn before coming under starter’s orders but too late for the SP market to be re-formed, the dog with the shortest returned Starting Price will be used, but should there be two or more runners at the shortest Starting Price, the one with the lowest racecard number will be taken. If there are no Starting Prices returned, the first runner quoted in the Racing Post betting forecast will be substituted. If there is no betting forecast and hence no substitute dog can be determined in accordance with any specific rules then the runner with the highest number of Tote Win pool units in the relevant race will be substituted. If two or more runners have an equal number of Tote Win pool units then the one with the lowest racecard number will substitute. If no Tote Win pool is operated then the lowest racecard number will substitute.

    If any leg of the Tote Placepot is a walkover, or is void, or is abandoned, or there is no official result declared for any reason, and is not re-ran on the same day, then the pool will be settled on the remaining legs, i.e. every selection in that leg is deemed to have been successful, provided at least one leg of the bet takes place. If none of the legs of the Tote Placepot take place, the pool will be declared void and all stakes refunded. Provided at least one leg takes place, a dividend will be declared, subject to Tote Pool rules.

    If in any leg the official result is that there are no finishers, the pool will be settled on the remaining legs, i.e. every selection is deemed to have been successful.

    Tote Jackpot

    The Tote Jackpot is operated on selected meetings, nominated by Tote Pool unless otherwise stated.

    The aim is to select the winning dog in each of the first six races at a meeting nominated by Tote Pool, unless otherwise stated.

    Single line entries are accepted with a minimum stake of £1, rising thereafter in multiples of 50p. Permutation entries are accepted with a minimum stake of 50p per line, rising thereafter in multiples of 50p providing a minimum total of £2 is staked.

    Bets on the un-named favourite are accepted and are represented by the Starting Price favourite.

    Bets are accepted on the trap number and not the greyhound name. If for any reason a greyhound is withdrawn in any leg and is replaced by a registered reserve, then bets will stand on that reserve. If a greyhound is withdrawn and is not replaced by a reserve, then selections on that trap number are transferred to the Starting Price favourite.

    When there are joint or co-favourites, the dog with the lowest racecard number will be taken. Should the favourite be withdrawn before coming under starter’s orders but too late for the SP market to be re-formed, the dog with the shortest returned Starting Price will be used, but should there be two or more runners at the shortest Starting Price, the one with the lowest racecard number will be taken. If there are no Starting Prices returned, the first runner quoted in the Racing Post betting forecast will be substituted. If there is no betting forecast and hence no substitute dog can be determined in accordance with any specific rules then the runner with the highest number of Tote Win pool units in the relevant race will be substituted. If two or more runners have an equal number of Tote Win pool units then the one with the lowest racecard number will substitute. If no Tote Win pool is operated then the lowest racecard number will substitute.

    If any leg of the Tote Jackpot is a walkover, or is void, or is abandoned, or there is no official result declared for any reason, and is not re-ran on the same day, then the pool will be settled on the remaining legs, i.e. every selection in that leg is deemed to have been successful, provided at least one leg of the bet takes place. If none of the legs of the Tote Jackpot take place, the pool will be declared void and all stakes refunded. Provided at least one leg takes place, a dividend will be declared, subject to Tote Pool rules.

    If in any leg the official result is that there are no finishers, the pool will be settled on the remaining legs, i.e. every selection is deemed to have been successful.

    Win only bets are available on all trotting races displayed on ladbrokes.com. You can also include a horse in a Trotting race in an accumulator with selections from either other Trotting races or other events on ladbrokes.com.

    Please note that Each Way bets on Trotting races are not available.

    Place Only Bets

    Place only bets are offered for the majority of Trotting races. However, the number of places available are affected by the number of runners taking part in the race and these terms are as follows:

    • All races of 8 or more runners - 3 places
    • All races of 4, 5, 6 and 7 runners - 2 places
    • Races with less than 4 runners - Place betting will not be offered for races of less than 4 runners. If a race originally has 4 or more runners but there are enough non-runners to reduce the field to less than 4, all bets previously accepted as place only bets will be void and stakes returned

    Match Bets

    Select which of two or three named runners will finish first in a race. Dead heat rules apply unless a tie price is made available (e.g. for a handicap match bet).

    If one runner does not take part in a match bet then all bets on that match are void.

    If all participating horses in a Match bet fail to complete the race, all bets are void.

    Daily Double

    As well as being able to place multiple bets by combining selections from different races, it is also possible to bet on Daily Doubles when this event is offered. The Daily Double involves two specifically nominated races each day. Returns for the Daily Double will be based not on the multiplied returns of the two winners but will instead be based on the official returns for the Daily Double.

    Dead Heats

    "Dead heat" is a term that describes when two or more participants in an event tie. If a "dead-heat" 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-heat", the stake is proportioned accordingly.

    Win

    If two or more horses dead heat for first place, then each horse in the dead heat is a winner.

    Place

    If two horses dead heat for first place, they fill the first two places. If three horses dead heat for first place, they fill the first three places, and so on.

    If two horses dead heat for second place, they fill the second and third places. If three horses dead heat for second place, they fill the second, third and fourth places.

    Daily Double

    If there is a dead heat for first place in either or both of the Daily Double races, then all horses involved in the dead heat are considered to be winners of their race.

    Non Runners

    If a horse is withdrawn before coming under ‘Starters Orders’ then bets will be settled using the Tattersall's Rule 4 deduction scale. The Tattersall's Rule 4 deduction scale adjusts prices to reflect the absence from the book of any non-runner. The following deductions are made per pound won and relate to the price of the withdrawn horse at the time a customer places their bet. If two or more horses are withdrawn before coming under Starter's Orders, then the total deduction will be the sum of the individual deductions, up to a maximum of 90p per pound won.

    All bets on a horse declared a non runner are void and stakes will be refunded. Any bets on the Daily Double are void if either horse included in the bet is a non runner.

    Tattersalls Rule 4(c)

    Price at time customer places there bet and amount deducted in the £ (or equivalent) from winnings:


    Price Deduction
    1/9 or shorter 90p
    2/11 to 2/17 85p
    1/4 to 1/5 80p
    3/10 to 2/7 75p
    2/5 to 1/3 70p
    8/15 to 4/9 65p
    8/13 to 4/7 60p
    4/5 to 4/6 55p

    Evens to 6/5 45p
    5/4 to 6/4 40p
    8/5 to 7/4 35p
    9/5 to 9/4 30p
    12/5 to 3/1 25p
    16/5 to 4/1 20p
    9/2 to 11/2 15p
    6/1 to 9/1 10p
    10/1 to 14/1 5p
    Over 14/1 No deduction

    For further information, please refer to our article on Rule 4 Deductions.

    Disqualified Horses

    If a horse is disqualified for any reason, all bets on that horse are losing bets.

    Cancelled or Postponed Races

    If a race is cancelled, all bets on that race will be void. If a race is postponed but takes place on the original day, all bets on that race will stand.

    If either one or both of the races in the Daily Double is cancelled, all bets on the Daily Double will be void.

    If one race in the Daily Double is postponed but takes place on the original day, all bets will stand.

    Virtual Sports

    Ladbrokes features exciting Virtual Sports events delivered in high quality video streams.

    Bets on Virtual Sports are settled the same way as for normal horse, greyhound or sports events. The outcome of the event depends on the number selected by a Random Number Generator (RNG). Each selection in the given virtual event is weighted according to its odds.

    The higher the price the less numbers will be allocated to it and therefore the less chance it has of being selected as the winner. However, if it does win, the odds and payout will be correspondingly higher.

    The overall payout will therefore be in proportion to the chances a selection has of winning, with a percentage deducted by Ladbrokes. This deduction leaves an average return to the customer of between 70% and 97% depending on the specific game played and the number of runners. The margins for Inspired Virtual Sports are detailed here: Inspired Virtual Sports Margins

    The RNG has been independently tested by a UK Gambling Commission accredited testing supplier.

    Selections taken from different Virtual Events may be combined in Win and Each-Way multiple bets (e.g. Doubles, Trebles, Accumulators, etc). Place only bets are not accepted. The place part of Each-Way bets will be settled using the usual place terms. A virtual event may be described as a handicap to signify the place terms on this event. It does not indicate an equal chance for every selection.

    Ladbrokes Legends

The races take place on 3D representations of the racecourses where Britain’s best races are run such as Epsom, Goodwood, Newmarket and York. The win probability of each runner is weighted to reflect its racing characteristics - ability, going and distance preferences, jockey, and trainer. The glorious uncertainty of horse racing is reflected in a further adjustment randomly selected from a set of values based on an analysis of horses’ likelihood of performing above or below expectations.


    General Rules:

    ● Each race starts with a view of each of the runners in the paddock alongside which is a summary of their race record, preferences where relevant, price and ability rating. A visualisation of the race starts at the race scheduled time.

    ● A replay of the closing stage of the race is played immediately after the horses cross the line, followed by a short result showing the first three finishers and their odds.

    ● All bets will be settled at the fractional odds stated

    ● We will strive to settle your bet immediately after the event has finished, but please bear in mind there may be a short delay in settlement.

    Sports


    Abandoned Matches

    If a match is abandoned before Full Time* has been played, bets on the match outcome will be void, unless an official result is declared. Bets on all markets which have been unconditionally determined will stand, for example in Football, First Goal Scorer bets will stand if a goal has been scored.

    * Full time is determined by the rules of the specific sport, please refer to any special rules or terms in relation to that sport.

    Cup/Trophy Competitions

    Unless we advertise other terms, we will settle outright betting on the player or team that lifts the trophy.

    Knock Out Competitions

    Tournament betting will be settled on the player or team that wins the trophy. We will settle bets in knock out competitions, on the competitor who qualifies for the next round. This applies as long as the match has started and is not drawn and replayed. If the match is drawn and replayed, bets will stand on the replayed match.

    Non-Runners

    Sports bets are accepted 'All in compete or not' and if a player or team is withdrawn before they have taken part in the event (in any way), your bet is a loser. If the event is advertised 'Non runner no bet', stakes will be refunded on a player or team withdrawn prior to the start of an event.

    If you have placed a winning bet on a sporting event when a different player or team is withdrawn, we may apply the equivalent to a Tattersalls' rule 4(c) to your winnings, based on the price of the selection withdrawn.

    Outright/Tournament & Handicap Betting

    When odds for both Outright/tournament and handicap betting are advertised, the bet will be settled on the Outright/tournament result unless the handicap price is specifically selected at the time the bet was placed. Where only handicap betting is available the bet will be settled as a handicap bet whether selected or not.

    Player/Team Withdrawn after the Official Start

    If a player or team has taken any part in the sporting event once it has officially started and then fails to complete for whatever reason, we will settle your bet as a loser.

    Postponed/Re-arranged Matches/Events

    A postponed match/event is void unless it is re-scheduled to commence within 48 hours of the original start time. In such circumstances, where (a) void match(es)/event(s) is/are included in an accumulator the bet will be settled on the remaining selections.

    Individual sports/events rules may override this rule so please refer to the individual sport/event rules applicable.

    Results

    In the case of Football and other Sports, bets are settled on the first result published by the official source/governing body or alternatively the official website of the relevant event, immediately after the match/event is finished. Any subsequent corrections or amendments to this result will not apply for settlement purposes.

    If the result is not immediately available from the official source/governing body or the official website of the relevant event, or there is significant evidence that the official source/governing body or official website is incorrect, we will use independent sources such as Press Association to decide settlement.

    In the absence of any consistent, independent evidence or in the presence of significant conflicting evidence, bets will be settled based on our own statistics.

    Please refer to specific rules for individual events.

    A full results service is available at www.ladbrokes.com. We also offer a racing service on 08712 445 100 at just 10p a minute*, which provides commentary for each UK racecourse and lists the day's horse and greyhound results. *Calls from mobiles may vary. Please check with your mobile provider for details.

    Season Handicap Betting

    Season Handicap bets are settled by adding (or subtracting) the handicap start value to the final points total of all selections in the market at the end of the season. In the event of a tie, dead heat rules apply.

    Season Match Betting

    Season match bets are settled on which of two selections will place highest in the league at the end of the season. If teams finish level on points then the tie breaker used by the league (e.g. goal difference or head-to-head records) will decide the winner.

    Top League/Tournament Scorer

    Bets placed on a player to be the top scorer in a given league are based on regular season games only. Any scores in subsequent play-off games do not count for betting purposes. Once a player is named in the squad and has the opportunity to play in the league that season, bets will stand.

    Bets placed on a player to be the top scorer in a given tournament will stand as long as the player is named in the squad and has the opportunity to play in the named tournament. If more than one player finishes on the same score, then dead heat rules apply.

    Tournament Betting

    Predicting which selection will win a tournament. Rule 4 deductions may apply.

    Venue Changes

    If your team is no longer playing at the venue advertised, your bet will still stand. This applies as long as the venue has not been changed to the opponent's ground (or in the case of international matches, as long as the venue remains in the same country).

    Abandoned Matches

    If a match is abandoned after it has commenced, all bets on that match will be made void except where settlement has already been determined. For example, where the first goal has been scored by a named player the First Goalscorer and Time of First Goal markets, amongst others, will stand. This rule will apply even if the governing body declare that the result of the shortened match will stand for competition purposes.

    Acceptance of Bets

    All football bets will be settled on 90 minutes play (also referred to as Full-time and normal time), unless otherwise stated. This denotes the period of play which includes time added by the Referee for injuries and other stoppages. This does not include scheduled extra time, or Penalty shoot-outs, if played.

    If a match takes place but is not completed as advertised (e.g. is not a 90 minute match, or is split into 3 periods rather than 2 halves) then all bets on the match will be void.

    In matches where penalty shoot outs or extra time are due to take place, all bets are settled on 90 minutes unless an Outright price is specifically requested and confirmed at the time the bet is placed.

    For matches played at neutral venues, the team listed on the left are still classed as the 'home' team for settlement purposes.

    A club team playing a European competition is classed as playing at home if the fixture is moved from the team's usual ground to another ground within their national boundaries, e.g. when Arsenal played their Champions League home ties at Wembley.

    If a match is no longer played at the venue advertised, bets will stand as long as the venue remains in the same country and is not switched to the opponent's ground. Should this occur, all bets will be void.

    Where Ladbrokes have not quoted prices on a match, any single bet on that match will be void and treated as a non-runner in multiple bets.

    If any team starts a 90 minute competitive game with less than 11 players, all bets on that match will be made void.

    Anycast (Player to Score at Anytime and Correct Score)

    To win you must successfully forecast a player to score a goal at anytime in a selected match and also the correct score after 90 minutes play.

    Anycasts are only available on selected matches.

    The result 0-0 and no goalscorer is settled as a correct score single.

    All players taking part at any point of the match are deemed to have played for settling purposes. If the selected player is a non-runner the bet will revert to a correct score single. The selected player will only be deemed as a non-runner if at the time they join the match the selected correct score has either been achieved or is no longer achievable.

    • For example, if a bet states Rooney to score anytime and Man Utd to win 2-0 and Rooney joins the match with Man Utd leading 1-0 the bet will still stand as Rooney has the opportunity to score and make the score 2-0. However, if he joined the match at 2-0 the anytime scorer part of the bet would be void and the bet would revert to the correct score only.

    For Player to Score at Anytime settlement purposes, own goals do not count, so in this circumstance, the Anycast will be settled on the next goalscorer and Correct Score of the game. If the correct score is 1-0 and the goal is an own goal, Scorecast bets are settled as a correct score single.

    If a match is abandoned prior to the completion of 90 minutes and goals have been scored, Anycast bets that include players that have scored are settled as winning Player to Score at Anytime singles. All other bets are void.

    Anytime Correct Score

    This market offers betting on the chosen selection being the score at any time within 90 minutes of the match. Where a match finishes 0-0 after 90 minutes, all selections will be losers. Extra time does not count.

    Asian Line Betting

    Asian Line bets are placed on either the favoured team to overcome a handicap (-goals) or on the opposing team receiving a handicap on top of their actual score (+goals). This betting market is made up of the Handicap Line and the Money Line. For full details please see our full article on What is Asian Line Handicap Betting?.

    Assist Markets

    Assist markets in Premier League matches will be settled in line with the first results published by Opta Sports, any subsequent amendments to their initial decision will not apply. In any other matches, Assist markets will be settled following these rules and on the first decision made, any subsequent amendments to the initial decision will not apply:

    Assists - Definition (in line with Opta Sports)

    • Assists are awarded to the player from the goal scoring team, who makes the final pass before a goal is scored. An assist is awarded whether the pass was intentional (that it actually creates the chance) or unintentional (that the player had to dribble the ball or an inadvertent touch or shot created the chance).
    • If an opposing player touches the ball after the final pass before a goal is scored, significantly altering the intended destination of the ball, then no assist is awarded.

    Rebounds
    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 from the rebound, then an assist is awarded.

    Own Goals
    If a player shoots or passes the ball and forces an opposing player to put the ball in his own net, then an assist is not awarded.

    Penalties and Free-Kicks
    Directly taken free kicks, direct corner goals and penalties do not get an assist awarded

    In the event of a 0-0, or the match resulting in any scoreline that doesn't involve an assist, "No Assist" will be deemed the winner.

    If a match is abandoned before an assist is awarded, all bets are void. This includes 'No Assist' bets as these are offered on the basis of 90 minutes being played in the game. If the match is abandoned after an assist is awarded, all bets will stand.

    Other selections are available on request.

    All bets are 90 minutes only.

    Pre-Match

    • First Assist:
      The winner of the First Assist will be the player who is credited with the first assist of the game, and not who assists the first goal of the game. e.g. In the event that no assist is awarded for the first goal, then the bet will roll over onto the assist for the goal after this and so on, until a goal is scored with an assist which is officially awarded.

      Stakes are refunded on any player who takes no part in the match or who comes on as substitute after the first assist has been awarded.

    • Anytime Assist:
      Stakes are refunded on any player who takes no part in the match. All players taking part at any point of the match are deemed to have played for the purposes of Anytime Assist bets.

    Betting In Play

    • Next Assist

      Bets struck apply to the next assist awarded in the match. All bets apply to assists awarded in 90 minutes only. Extra-time does not count.

      In the event no assist is awarded for the goal after the bet has been placed, then the bet will roll over onto the assist for the goal after this and so on, until a goal is scored with an assist which is officially awarded.

      In the event of there being no more assists awarded after the bet has been struck, in 90 minutes, "No Assist" will be deemed to have been the outcome.

      Where there is a dispute concerning who assisted a goal in a match, settlement will be based upon the first result declared by the official website of the governing body of the competition (For example, PremierLeague.com for Premier League matches, or UEFA.com for European World Cup Qualifiers, European Championships, Champions League and Europa League matches). Any subsequent amendments made by the official website to their initial decision will not apply.

    Both Teams To Score (Goal Crazy)

    A prediction on both teams to score a goal in the match.

    This market is also known as "Goal Crazy".

    Own goals do count for this market. E.g. If Arsenal are playing Tottenham and there is an own goal by an Arsenal player, and then Arsenal go on to score themselves to make it 1-1, the result of the Both Teams to Score market would be "Yes", as both teams have been awarded a goal.

    If a match is abandoned after it has commenced, all bets on this market will be made void except where settlement has already been determined. For example, if both teams have already scored at the point the match is abandoned then "Yes" will be settled as the winner.

    1st Goalscorer and Both Teams To Score

    For the bet to win, the selected player must score the 1st goal in the game and both teams must score. Example: If Costa scores first in the Chelsea v Everton match, and the final score is 2-1, then "Costa and Both Teams to Score" will be the winning selection.

    If the selected player does not start the match, or comes on after the first goal is scored, the bet will go onto the "Both teams to Score" market.

    If a match is abandoned after it has commenced, all bets on this market will be made void except where settlement has already been determined. For example, if both teams have already scored at the point the match is abandoned then the first scoring player and "Yes" will be settled as the winner. Where a match is abandoned after the first goal has been scored and accredited to a player (an own goal does not count), but both teams have not scored, the bet will be settled on the First Player to Score market.

    Match Result With Both Teams To Score

    A prediction on the result at the end of normal time and both teams to score a goal in the match.

    This market is also known as "Result Rush" in our shops.

    If the match is abandoned after it has commenced, bets will be void regardless if both teams have scored or not.

    Both Teams To Score - 1st Half (1st Half Goal Crazy)

    A prediction on both teams to score a goal in the 1st Half.

    This market is also known as "1st Half Goal Crazy".

    If a match is abandoned after it has commenced, all bets on this market will be made void except where settlement has already been determined. For example, if both teams have already scored at the point the match is abandoned then "Yes" will be settled as the winner.

    Both Teams To Score - 2nd Half (2nd Half Goal Crazy)

    Both Teams to Score in Both Halves

    The 90 minute match is treated as two separate 45 minute 'mini-matches' and therefore both teams must score a goal in each of the two halves.

    If a match is abandoned after it has commenced, all bets on this market will be made void except where settlement has already been determined. For example, if both teams have already scored in Both Halves at the point the match is abandoned then "Yes" will be settled as the winner.

    Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals in the match

    A prediction on both teams to score a goal and 3 goals or more scored in the match.

    If a match is abandoned after it has commenced, all bets on this market will be made void except where settlement has already been determined. For example, if both teams have already scored with over 2.5 goals at the point the match is abandoned then "Yes" will be settled as the winner.

    Extra time does not include penalty shoot outs.

    All extra time betting markets, such as 'Correct Score', or 'Time of First Goal', will start from the beginning of extra time and not include normal time. For example, if the game finishes 2-2 at the end of normal time and there are no goals scored in extra time, the 'extra time correct score' market will be settled as '0-0'.

    1st Goalscorer - Odd/Even Goal Minute

    1. The bet is made up of two separate selections. The first player to score and the time of goal as an odd or an even number.
    2. Both parts of the selection need to be correct for the bet to be deemed a winner.
    3. If the First Player to Score selection has taken no part in the game at the time of the first goal the bet will be void.
    4. If the game finishes goalless the bet will be deemed a loser unless your selection has taken no part in the game in which case the bet will be made void.
    5. Bets will be settled on the first result announced by the official source/governing body or alternatively the official website of the relevant event.
    6. If the first goal is scored in injury time at the end of either half the bet will be settled on the official result that is announced. For example, if the first goal is scored in the 3rd minute of first half injury time and the official source/governing body or alternatively the official website of the relevant event announce the time of goal as the 45th minute, then for settlement purposes the goal will be deemed to have been scored in an 'Odd' minute.

    1st Half Result/2nd Half Result

    Customers are asked to predict the result for each separate half in one 90-minute game. For example if Lincoln play Dagenham and lead 1-0 at half time and the game then finishes 1-0 after 90 mins, the result will be settled as Lincoln winning the first half and the draw as the result in the second half.

    First Match to X (Tournament)

    Where "First Match to X" lists only limited selections, others will be available on request. Where no match in the tournament meets the requirement all bets will be void. Where matches are scheduled to kick-off simultaneously, if these are the first matches to meet the requirement, dead heat rules apply regardless of time of final whistle (0-0) or times of goals scored (4/5 goals).

    Goalscorer Bets

    All goalscorer bets are offered on selected major games as advertised. Bets are settled on the player to score in the match within 90 minutes.

    We will make every effort to quote prices for all probable players. However, prices for unquoted players will always be available on request and those players will count as winners in the event that they score.

    If the only goal scored within 90 minutes is an own goal, then 'no goalscorer' will be deemed to have been the outcome.

    If a match is abandoned before a goal is scored, all bets are void. This includes 'no goalscorer' bets as these are offered on the basis of 90 minutes being played in the game. If the match is abandoned after goals have been scored, all first goalscorer bets will stand, any Player to Score at Anytime bets already determined will be paid as winners, but all other goalscorer bets will be void.

    Where there is a dispute concerning who scored the goals in a match, bets are settled on the first result published by the official source/governing body or alternatively the official website of the relevant event, immediately after the match/event is finished. Any subsequent corrections or amendments to this result will not apply for settlement purposes.

    If the result is not immediately available from the official source/governing body or the official website of the relevant event, or there is significant evidence that the official source/governing body or official website is incorrect, we will use independent sources such as Press Association to decide settlement.

    In the absence of any consistent, independent evidence or in the presence of significant conflicting evidence, bets will be settled based on our own statistics.

    First Goalscorer

    Stakes are refunded on any player who takes no part in the match or who comes on as substitute after the first goal has been scored. Own goals do not count for First Goalscorer purposes and are ignored for settlement purposes. On some matches the First Goalscorer betting may be limited to one specific team.

    Last Goalscorer

    All players taking part at any point of the match are deemed to have played for the purposes of Last goalscorer bets, irrespective of whether they were on the pitch at the time the last goal is scored. Own goals do not count.

    If there are no further goals scored "No Goalscorer" will be the winning selection. If no price is offered for "No Goalscorer" and no further goals are scored then all bets on the market will be void.

    Own goals do not count. If the next goal is an own goal the market will be settled on the next goal following the own goal. If odds are quoted for an own goal, where the next goal is an own goal bets on named players to score the next goal will be settled as losers.

    Goalscorer Match Bets

    Tournament Goalscorer Match Bets

    Bets stand if at least one player plays and scores. Bets are void if neither player takes part in the tournament or if both players finish on equal goals.

    Half-time Betting

    Half-time betting is available on certain matches. Bets are settled on the result of the match at the end of the first half (i.e. at the end of 45 minutes, including injury time). Bets will be void if the match is abandoned. Singles and upwards are available.

    Half-time/Full-time (Double Result Forecast Betting)

    Half-time/Full-time (Double result forecast) betting is available on most matches where Home/Away/Draw prices are quoted. Bets are settled based on the result of the match at both half-time and full-time (i.e. at the end of 45 minutes and 90 minutes, including injury time). Bets will be void if the match is abandoned prior to the completion of 90 minutes play. Singles and upwards are available.

    Only the named games count for betting purposes. If five or more games are offered and two or more of the games are postponed, then all bets are void. If fewer than five games are offered and one or more of the games are postponed, then all bets are void.

    How many times will the Woodwork be Hit?

    For the settlement of this bet we will count every instance in which the ball hits the woodwork - i.e. the posts or crossbar - during active play. If the ball hits the woodwork after the referee has stopped play it will not count. Instances where the ball hits the woodwork twice or more in succession will count separately.

    Extra time and penalty shoot-outs do not count for the purposes of this bet.

    How will my Football bet on a Cup Tie be settled?

    All football bets will be settled on 90 minutes play (also referred to as Full-time and normal time). This denotes the period of play which includes time added by the Referee for injuries and other stoppages. This does not include scheduled extra time, or Penalty shoot-outs, if played.

    In Cup matches where penalty shoot outs or extra time are due to take place, all bets are settled on 90 minutes unless an Outright (i.e. 'To Qualify' or 'Cup Winner') price is specifically requested and confirmed at the time the bet is placed.

    How will the First Goal be Scored?

    In the 'How will the First Goal be Scored' markets, customers are betting on whether the first goal in a game will be scored - left leg, right leg, head or any other part of the body.

    If the goal is credited to a player but deflects off another player before going in to the goal, that deflection is not taken in to account. For example, if a player hits the ball with his left foot but the ball deflects off a defender's knee in to the goal, 'left foot' remains the winning selection.

    Own goals do not count for this market - if the goal is deemed to be an own goal all bets will be settled on the next goal.

    Injury Time

    Unless the market states otherwise, betting on injury time relates to the second half injury time only.

    Last Team to Score

    This market is also known as "Last Goal Wins" in our shops.

    Bets are settled on the team to score the last goal in a match. Own Goals DO count for this market - e.g. Chelsea are playing Spurs and the last goal is an own goal by a Chelsea player. Spurs are awarded the goal, so Spurs would be the winner in the 'Last team to score' market. Normal 90 minutes betting rules apply.

    Man Of The Match

    The market will be settled as follows:

    • We will settle in accordance with the man of the match announced in commentary during the live broadcasting of the match.
    • If there is no announcement during the match, we will settle in accordance with the man of the match award presented during the live broadcasting of the match.
    • If there is no presentation during the broadcast, we will settle in accordance with the player quoted as man of the match on the broadcasting channel’s official website. For example, if the match was shown on Sky Sports, the official website would be www.skysports.com.
    • If the broadcaster's official website does not quote a player as being man of the match, we will settle on the player quoted as man of the match on the website of the governing body for that competition. For example, the FA would be the governing body in relation to matches in the FA Cup.

    In the event that the match is shown live on two channels we will settle in the following way:

    • We will settle on the player quoted as man of the match on the website of the governing body for that competition. For example, UEFA would be the governing body in relation to matches in the Champions League.

    If we are still unable to settle the market via the methods described above, then all bets on the Man of the Match market will be void.

    Bets placed on players that take any part in the match will stand. A bet on a player that does not take any part in the match will be void.

    We will also be able to offer a price, upon request, on any player not quoted in the market. Any unquoted player will be deemed the winner should they receive the man of the match award.

    Mythical Matches

    In our 'mythical match' markets, customers are betting on which of two selected teams will score more goals in their respective games that weekend.

    For example - a mythical match might be England Vs Argentina, when England are actually playing Scotland, and Argentina are actually playing Brazil. If England beat Scotland 2-0 and Brazil and Argentina draw 1-1, then the Mythical match score is 2-1 to England.

    If both teams score the same number of goals, then the 'draw' option is the winner.

    Next Permanent Manager

    Settlement is based on the official team statement that an individual has been appointed as Permanent manager of the First Team. Caretaker managers and temporary managers do not count for settlement purposes.

    Next Manager To Leave

    The date shown for the market is for display purposes. The date is pushed back each time there is a round of matches on the league, and will continue to be done so until a manager leaves, if no manager leaves before the end of the season then the selection of ‘No Manager’ will be a winner.

    When a manager leaves the market is then settled and a new market is then set up and the process repeats until the end of the season.

    Next Team to Score

    Bets are settled on the team to score the next goal in a match. Own goals do count for this market e.g. If Arsenal are playing Spurs and the first goal is an own goal by an Arsenal player then Spurs would be the winner in the first 'Next Team to Score' market. Normal 90 minutes betting rules apply.

    Number of Corners

    Bets are settled on the total number of corners within 90 minutes. The typical starting values are:

    • Under 10
    • Between 10 and 12
    • Over 12

    These values may fluctuate as the match progresses. The market is for 90 minutes only, so any corners that take place in extra time do not count for betting purposes.

    Corners awarded but not taken will not count for settling purposes.

    This bet cannot be combined with any other bets on the same match. Should this bet be accepted in error, it will be settled by equally dividing the stake unit where the related outcomes clash.

    Penalty Shoot Outs

    The in-play markets "Shootout winner", "Outcome of Next Penalty", "Sudden death?" and "Total penalties converted" apply only to the result of a penalty shootout. Penalties scored in normal time and/or extra time will not count for the purposes of this market. A shootout is deemed to have gone to sudden death if both sides have taken 5 penalties each and the score remains level. Sudden death rounds of one kick each are then taken until one team scores and the other team does not.

    In the event that a match does not go to a penalty shootout, all bets on these four in-play markets will be void.

    Player of the Tournament

    Player of the Tournament bets are settled on the player to receive the 'Golden Ball' award. The winner will be determined by the first announcement made by the website of the official governing body of the tournament, subsequent alterations will be ignored for settlement purposes.

In the event that any match goes into extra time all WhoScored.com related markets will be settled based on the results after 120 minutes, and penalties where applicable. Dead heat rules apply. All players to play a part in the match will be deemed as runners, with those not taking part settled as non-runners. Other players will be available on request and any unquoted player can be deemed the winner. 'Highest Rated player' is independent of any 'Man of the Match' market settlement.

    Highest Rated Player - In the event that more than 1 player receives the same performance rating, the highest rated player market will be settled according to which player receives the green star on the WhoScored.com website.

    Highest Rated Player W/O X Player - In the event that the player excluded is awarded the Highest Rating and the green star, and more than 1 other player receives the same 2nd highest performance rating, the highest rated player w/o market will be settled as a dead heat between however many players scored the same performance rating to 2 decimal places.

    Highest Rated Player Outright - Offered on tournaments. This will be settled based on the player with the highest overall average score for the tournament.

    Player to Score the Winning Goal

    Bets are settled on the player to score in the match within 90 minutes. If a match is not completed, all bets will be void.

    We will make every effort to quote prices for all probable players. However, prices for unquoted players will always be available on request and those players will count as winners in the event that they score the winning goal.

    If a team wins by more than one goal, the separating goal will be deemed as the winning goal - if a match finishes 3-1, the player who scores to make it 2-1 will be settled as the winner.

    Own goals do not count; if an own goal is deemed the winning goal, settlement carries over to the next goal - if a match finishes 2-0 after an own goal makes it 1-0, the scorer of the goal to make it 2-0 will be deemed the winner. If the winning goal is an own goal with no further goals scored after (i.e. 1-0) all bets will stand.

    Where there is a dispute concerning who scored the goals in a match, bets are settled on the first result published by the official source/governing body or alternatively the official website of the relevant event, immediately after the match/event is finished. Any subsequent corrections or amendments to this result will not apply for settlement purposes.

    Rapid Fire Football Markets

    Rapid fire is an innovative and immediate in-play product offered on selected football matches. A specific betting window to place bets on what the next outcome of the match will be.

    Rapid Fire consists of the following markets which will be offered at various intervals during the match:

    • Next Set Piece
    • What's Next?
    • Rapid Goal

    Bet on whether there will be a goal in the next 60 seconds of a Free Kick, Corner or Penalty being taken.

    The betting window for a Rapid Goal market will typically be activated shortly after the whistle is blown for a Free Kick in an attacking area, Corner or Penalty, and close a few seconds before the Free Kick, Corner or Penalty is actually taken.

    As soon as the Free Kick, Corner or Penalty is taken, an on-screen countdown bar will start counting down from 60, representing the 60 seconds in which a goal must be scored to be considered a "Rapid Goal" and subsequently resulted as a successful bet.

    In the event that the referee blows the whistle for a penalty kick during the 60-second Rapid Goal in-play period, the penalty kick will be deemed to have occurred within the 60-second in-play period, regardless of when it is actually performed.

    • For example, if (i) the referee blows the whistle for a penalty kick in the 59th second following a Free Kick and Corner (ii) the penalty kick is successful, then, regardless of when the penalty kick was actually performed, the goal will be deemed to have been scored within the 60-second in-play period for purposes of resulting the Rapid Goal bet.
    • For result purposes, 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. (E.g., if the ball passes the goal-line within the confines of the goal posts within the 60-second Rapid Goal in-play period, but the goal is not awarded because, for example, a foul occurred before the shot, then a goal will not be deemed to have been scored.)

    Rapid Fire Market Dynamics

    Rapid Fire markets are made available to customers at various intervals in selected matches. The outcome is specific to the stated time during the match as displayed in the market header.

    Betting Window; when the market is activated a 40 second countdown timer appears highlighted in green, this is the bet placement period. The countdown timer will change to red to highlight the last 10 seconds of the betting opportunity.

    ˜'Cooling Off'' Period; following the 40 second betting window the countdown timer will turn green stating a period of ˜no more bets'. The market will display this status for 10 seconds.

    In Progress; an "In Progress" message will appear highlighted in blue, following the ˜'Cooling Off'' period, informing that all accepted bets are now active.

    Result; once the result is known, the winning selection will be highlighted within the market, this denotes that bets have now been settled. Rapid Fire market will remain suspended until the next time stamped market is activated.

    For both Rapid Fire markets, any of the wagering options may be suspended at any point during the 40 second betting window if the trader deems it necessary.

    The following rules apply to this market:

    Football bets will be settled on the basis of results determined by the Press Association's (PA) initial decision. If the PA do not cover a match, settlement will be based on the results as determined by the relevant football association.

    Regular Play (1X2)

    All 3-way markets will be settled on regular play unless otherwise stated. This includes any added injury or stoppage time but does not include scheduled extra time or penalty shoot-outs, if played.

    For matches with an incorrect format i.e ones that are not completed as advertised (e.g. is not a 90 minute match, is split into 3 periods rather than 2 halves or 2 halves of 40 minutes are played) the following rules apply:

    Bets places on pre-match
    • The 3 way market will be settled
    • All other markets will be made void

    Bets placed in-play

    • The 3 way market will be made void (on the premise of wrong odds)
    • Any 1st half and match markets already determined at the end of the 1st half only will be settled
    • Not determined markets and full-time/second half markets will be void.

    For any match offered In Play as advertised (e.g. 3 periods rather than 2 halves or 2 halves of 40 minutes are played) all bets will stand.

    Related Contingencies in one Match

    Where we offer various betting opportunities from the same match (e.g. Correct Score, First Player to Score etc) these cannot be combined in accumulative bets where the outcome is related (except where special fixed prices are available for Scorecasts).

    Where an accumulative bet of this type as been accepted in error we will create a price that reflects the scenario relevant to the time the bet was placed. If this is not possible, each part of the bet including a related contingency will be settled at the largest individual event price involved.

    For example:
    A £10 Double:-
    Manchester United to win in 90 minutes play (6/4) and Manchester United to win 2-1 (5/1) is settled as a £10 single at 5/1 (the largest of the 2 individual event prices).

    Result After XX Minutes

    Betting on who is winning a match at specified times throughout the match.

    Markets are settled on the score at 14:59 for the 15 minute market; 29:59 for the 30 minute market; 59:59 for the 60 minute market and 74:59 for the 75 minute market.

    Results

    In the case of Football and other Sports, bets are settled on the first result published by the official source/governing body or alternatively the official website of the relevant event, immediately after the match/event is finished. Any subsequent corrections or amendments to this result will not apply for settlement purposes.

    If the result is not immediately available from the official source/governing body or the official website of the relevant event, or there is significant evidence that the official source/governing body or official website is incorrect, we will use independent sources such as Press Association to decide settlement.

    In the absence of any consistent, independent evidence or in the presence of significant conflicting evidence, bets will be settled based on our own statistics.

    Scorecasts (First Player to Score and Correct Score)

    To win you must successfully forecast both the player who will score the first goal in a selected match and also the correct score after 90 minutes play.

    Scorecasts are available on all matches where Correct Score and First Player to Score odds are quoted on this website.

    The Scorecast 0-0 and no goalscorer is settled as a correct score single.

    If your selected player joins the match after the first goal has been scored or does not take part in the game, Scorecast bets will revert to a single on the Correct Score.

    For First Goalscorer purposes, own goals do not count, so in this circumstance, the Scorecast will be settled on the next goalscorer and Correct Score of the game. If the correct score is 1-0 and the goal is an own goal, Scorecast bets are settled as a correct score single.

    If a match is abandoned prior to the completion of 90 minutes and a goal has been scored, Scorecast bets are settled as First Goalscorer singles. If no goal has been scored, all bets are void.

    Season Handicap Betting

    Season Handicap bets are settled by adding (or subtracting) the handicap start value to the final points total of all selections in the market at the end of the season. In the event of a tie, dead heat rules apply.

    If the league is ended prematurely (Not completed fully) all season handicap bets will be void.

    Season Match Betting

    Season match bets are settled on which of two teams will place highest in the league at the end of the season. If teams finish level on points then the tie breaker used by the league (e.g. goal difference or head-to-head records) will decide the winner.

    Team to Lead at Anytime

    Bets are settled when a team takes the lead in a match. Own Goals DO count for this market e.g. Chelsea are playing Spurs and Chelsea take the lead through an own goal by a Spurs player. Chelsea are awarded the goal, so the 'Chelsea' selection becomes a winner in the 'Team to Lead at Anytime' market. Both teams can be settled as winners in this market e.g. if Chelsea go 1-0 up and then Spurs go 2-1 ahead, both teams have lead in the match and therefore both selections are winners. Normal 90 minutes betting rules apply.

    If a match is abandoned after it has commenced, all bets on this market will be made void except where settlement has already been determined. For example, if either or both teams have led at the point the match is abandoned then "Yes" will be settled as the winner for the relevant selection(s).

    Team to Score First and Last

    If the game ends in a goalless draw, all bets on this market are void. Extra time does not count for the purposes of this market.

    The Total Result

    A prediction on the result at the end of normal time and either over or under the stated goal line.

    The match must reach a natural conclusion for bets to stand. If the match is abandoned after it has commenced, all bets will be void irrespective of the score at the point of abandonment.

    Time of Acceptance of Football Bets

    Bets will be accepted up to the advertised kick off time. Bets may also be accepted up to 5 minutes after kick-off time as long as a goal has not been scored, or a player sent off.

    In some matches we also offer bet in play prices on the result at 90 minutes. Normally bets are accepted up to the 90th minute, although this may change depending on the circumstances of the match. On certain occasions bets may also be taken during extra-time.

    Time of First Goal

    For settlement purposes the 1st minute of the game is from 1 second to 59 seconds. The 2nd minute is from 1 minute to 1 minute 59 seconds and so on. For example, if a bet is placed on the first goal to be scored between 1 and 10 minutes and a goal is scored at 10 minutes 49 seconds, the bet is a loser as this falls within the 11 to 20 minutes time frame.

    If a goal is scored in injury time of the first half, the winning selection will be the 41-50mins bracket. If a goal is scored in injury time of the second half. the winning selection would be the 81-90mins bracket.

    If the match is abandoned after the first goal has been scored then all bets will stand. If no goal has been scored all bets will be void.

    Time of Next Home/Away Goal

    In games played at a neutral venue, the home side will be deemed to be the first named one. For example, if an event is called 'Holland vs Spain', then Holland would be the 'home' team as they are named first and Spain would be the 'away' team.

    If a goal is scored in injury time of the first half, the winning selection will be the 41-50mins bracket. If a goal is scored in injury time of the second half. the winning selection would be the 81-90mins bracket.

    Time of Next Match Goal

    If a goal is scored in injury time of the first half, the winning selection will be the 41-50mins bracket. If a goal is scored in injury time of the second half, the winning selection would be the 81-90mins bracket.

    Timing of Corners and Penalty Kicks

    For settlement purposes, the timing of any corners and penalty kicks will be based upon the time the kick was taken and not the time at which it was awarded.

    To Play For...

    Must gain a full International cap for nominated team (as in actually play minutes, not just be named to the squad). Friendlies count.

    To Play for a Specified Professional Domestic Team

    Must make an appearance (as in actually play minutes, not just be named to the squad) in a competitive official league match for a team in any of the following divisions:
    English Premier League, English Championship, English League 1, English League 2, Scottish Premier League. Friendlies do not count. Appearances for the aforementioned English league clubs in English cups (FA Cup, League Cup and Johnston's Paint Trophy) count.

    To Play Professionally

    Must make an appearance (as in actually play minutes, not just be named in the squad) in a competitive official league match for a team in any of the following divisions:

    League matches in the highest tier league from the following countries will also count: Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Portugal.

    To Win Both Halves

    The 90 minute match is treated as two separate 45 minute 'mini-matches' and therefore your selection must score more goals than the other team in each of the two halves.

    For example, if your selection scores in the first half of a match and the match finishes 1-0, although the first half was won 1-0 , the score in the second 45 minutes was effectively 0-0 and therefore a draw. If this occurs, only the first half is considered to have been 'won' and therefore bets would be losers.

    Top Class Trebles/Top Man Trebles

    If one or more of the selections are non-runners (e.g a match is postponed or a player does not take part) then bets will be settled based on the individual prices for the remaining selections.

    All bets are settled using the result at the end of normal time - i.e. extra-time does not count.

    This bet cannot be combined with any other bets on the same match. Should this bet be accepted in error, it will be settled by equally dividing the stake unit where the related outcomes clash.

    Top League/Tournament/Team Goalscorer

    Bets placed on a player to be the top scorer in a given league are based on regular season games only. Any goals scored in subsequent play-off games do not count for betting purposes. Once a player is named in the squad and has the opportunity to play in the league that season, bets will stand.

    Bets placed on a player to be the top scorer in a given tournament, or to be Top Team Goalscorer in a given tournament, will stand as long as the player is named in the squad and has the opportunity to play in the named tournament. If more than one player finishes on the same number of goals, then dead heat rules apply (any tournament top scorer award, for example "Golden Boot" is ignored for settlement purposes). Goals scored in Extra-Time will count, but goals scored within Penalty Shootouts will not count.

    Top Goalscorer and Team To Win

    Where there is a special price for a tournament Top Goalscorer and Team To Win, any dead heat occurring in the Top Tournament Goalscorer part of the bet will be applied to the whole special bet. For example, if Mario Gomez to be Top Scorer and Germany To Win the Tournament is 12/1, and Mario Gomez ties for Top Scorer with another player, the ½ dead heat for Mario Gomez would be applied directly to the full stake of the whole special bet before subsequent settlement at 12/1.

    Top X Team (Tournament)

    Top Team bets will be settled on the stage of elimination. Dead Heat rules apply. For example, in the World Cup, if all market selections go out in the group stage, they will all be settled as winners with dead heat rules irrespective of points scored in the group stage. For the World Cup Semi-Finals, settlement will be based on the result of the third/fourth place play-off match.

    Total Goals Odd or Even

    Bets are settled on whether the total number of goals scored within 90 minutes, will be an odd or an even number. Extra-time and penalties do not count. If the total number of goals in a game is zero (i.e. the final score is 0 - 0) then "Even" is considered the winning selection.

    This bet cannot be combined with any other bets on the same match. Should this bet be accepted in error, it will be settled by equally dividing the stake unit where the related outcomes clash.

    Total League Goals (Under/Over)

Only games played on the named date will count. In the event of a postponed match, all bets will be void and a revised market will be created.

    a) Goals will be deemed to have occurred at the actual time of their occurrence, not the time the goal was confirmed by VAR. Where a market has been settled, the outcome of which is reversed following a subsequent VAR, the company reserve the right to resettle affected bets according to the VAR outcome.

    b) Penalties: · If a penalty is ordered to be retaken by VAR for whatever reason, then the original penalty will not count towards any official settlement. Further, if VAR subsequently rules a penalty should be retaken, this will still count as one penalty has been kicked for settlement purposes. · If a penalty is awarded then reversed by the referee following VAR, bets will stand for the next penalty. · If a penalty is awarded but the penalty taker is penalised for an infringement, then this will not count as a penalty taken.

Example: The referee makes a signal that a VAR Review is underway by making a TV signal with his hands, this indicates that a VAR Review will take place and the referee will review the incident.

    Floorball

    We accept singles and upwards on floorball matches.

    All floorball bets will be settled on 60 minutes play unless specifically stated otherwise. If 60 minutes play is not completed for any reason then all bets will be void.

    Betting In Play:

    All floorball bets in running will be settled on 60 minutes play unless specifically stated otherwise. When scores are displayed in running, every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the score and game situation. However no liability is accepted for incorrect information displayed.

    If a match is abandoned all bets will be void, except for those markets which have been unconditionally determined. If an official result is declared then all bets stand.

    'Period Betting - 20 mins only'

    Each 20 minute period is treated as a separate 'mini-match' and therefore your selection must score more goals than the other team within the chosen period to win. Any existing score in the match is not carried forward, and so for the purposes of Period Betting, every period is considered as starting 0-0, as no goals have yet been scored in the period.

    For example, if your selected team wins a match 2-0, scoring in the 1st and 3rd periods, the period scores would be 1-0, 0-0 and 1-0. If you had bet on the team to win "2nd Period Betting - 20 mins only", although your team won the match, the winning selection for Period 2 would actually be "Draw".

    Futsal Rules

    All match markets will be settled on regulation time (specific to competition governing body) inclusive of time added by the referee but excluding Overtime/Extra-Time and Penalties, unless stated otherwise. This includes Match Odd/Even, which in the event of no score will be settled as Even.

    Regulation time must be completed for bets to stand unless settlement is already determined.

    Should a match be abandoned before the end of regulation time then all bets will be declared void unless a definitive result for that market has already been determined prior to abandonment.

    Half bets will be settled at the end of the specified half (including any time added by the referee but excluding any extra-time played). In the event of a specific half not being completed bets will be void, unless settlement is already determined.

    Timed Markets

    For settlement purposes the 1st minute of the game is from 1 second to 59 seconds. The 2nd minute is from 1 minute to 1 minute 59 seconds and so on. For example, if a bet is placed on a goal being scored between 1 and 10 minutes and a goal is scored at 10 minutes 49 seconds, the bet is a loser as this falls within the 11 to 20 minutes time frame.

    Tournament Betting

    All bets are settled on the official result at the end of normal time (including any injury time). Extra time does not count unless specifically stated otherwise.

    If a game is postponed all bets will be void unless the game is played within 24 hours of the original start time.

    If a match is no longer being played at the venue advertised, bets will stand as long as it takes place within the original county. This applies as long as the venue is not switched to the opponents ground or to a venue outside of the original county.

    Should a match be abandoned prior to completion, all markets on that match will be void, unless a definitive result for that market has already been determined prior to abandonment (e.g. First Goalscorer and First Score in Game).

    Half-time/Full-time betting

    Bets on this market settled on the result at half time and the result at the end of normal time (including injury time).

    Goalscorer betting

    Bets on this market are settled on the first player to score a goal in the game within normal time.

    Stakes are refunded on any player who takes no part in the match or who comes on as substitute after the first goal has been scored. Own goals do not count for First Goalscorer purposes and are ignored.

    If the only goal scored within normal time is an Own Goal, then No Goalscorer will be deemed to have been the successful outcome.

    If a match is abandoned before the first goal is scored, all bets are void. This includes "No Goalscorer" bets as these are offered on the basis of the entire game being completed. If a match is abandoned after the first goal is scored, all bets stand.

    Where there is a dispute concerning who scored the goals in a match, bets will be settled based on the result published by the official governing body immediately the match is finished. Any subsequent corrections or amendments to this result will not apply for settlement purposes.

    We try to offer a price on every player taking part in a particular game to score the first goal. If you wish to bet on a player who is not displayed our list, please contact our Customer Support department

    Winning Margins betting

    All bets are settled on the final result at the end of normal time (including any injury time). Extra time does not count.

    The result of this market is determined by the winning team's points superiority. (1 goal = 3 points). For example, if the result of a game is Kerry 2 goals and 6 points (total points = 12) beat Dublin 1 goal and 7 points (total points = 10) then Kerry have won by 2 points.

    Total Score in Game

    All bets are settled on the final result at the end of normal time (including any injury time). Extra time does not count.

    The result of this market is determined by the final points total of the game. (1 goal = 3 points) For example, if the result of a game is Kerry 1 goal and 14 points (total points = 17) lose to Dublin 3 goals and 10 points (total points = 19) then the total score in game is 36 points.

    Handicap betting

    GAA Handicap betting is in the form of a whole-point handicap (e.g. +/- 3points, +/- 7 points, etc.). Tie prices are also available.

    The winning selection is determined by adding the handicap to final points score.

    A typical market will be:

    • Kerry (+3pts) 5/6
    • Dublin (-3pts) 5/6

    If the final score in this fixture was Kerry 1 goal and 10 points (total points = 13) lose to Dublin 1 goal and 12 points (total points = 15) then to determine the handicap result simply add 3pts to Kerry's final score. This leaves the handicap result as Kerry 16 points, Dublin 15 points so "Kerry (+3pts)" would be the winning selection.

    First/Last Scoring Play

    This market is based on selecting the first or final scoring play and the team that will score it. For the purpose of this market, 'Dead Ball' will count as frees, penalties, sideline kicks/cuts, 45's/65's.

    If a match is abandoned before there is a score, all bets are void.

    If a match is abandoned after the first score has been registered, bets on the First Scoring Play will stand, as there will be a definitive result for the market. However in any scenario where a game is not completed the Last Scoring Play market will be void.

    Player Total Points

    This market is based on selecting Over or Under a given line for a player's contribution to his team's total points. Goals count as 3 points towards the player's total.

    The player must start the match for which the price is offered or all bets on that player will be void.

    Added Time

    The market is settled on the announcement of the minimum number of minutes of added time. This will be announced at the stadium over the public address system and repeated by the match commentator on the live broadcast. The amount of time actually played is irrelevant to this market, all bets are on the announcement.

    In tournaments affected by bad weather, bets will be settled on the official result regardless of the number of rounds played.

    If the tournament is abandoned, any bets placed after the last completed round will be void.

    Tied/Dead Heat result

    If a price for a tie is not available, dead heat rules will apply e.g. if you placed an each way bet and the terms quoted for the tournament are for the first five places, we will treat three players tying for fourth place as having dead heated for fourth, fifth and sixth place. We will then settle with 1/3 stake lost and 2/3 stake settled at full place odds for each-way bets on those players.

    Withdrawn/Disqualified player

    If a player is withdrawn before the start of the tournament, we will settle your bet as void and refund your stake. If the player has already teed off, they are considered to have taken part in the tournament and your bet will be settled as a loser.

    Tournaments

    Outright

    All tournament bets are settled on the player winning the trophy. If a tournament is reduced from the scheduled number of holes, we will settle any outright bets placed after the final completed round as void.

Any subsequent corrections or amendments to this result will not apply for settlement purposes.

    Other

    Tournament, match and group betting will be settled on the player achieving the highest placing at the end of the tournament including play-off holes if played. This will apply, even if both (or all) players 'miss the cut'.

    All bets relating to an individual’s specific round(s) will be settled on the number of strokes registered on the score-card as signed by that competitor upon the completion of play.

    Tournament Match Betting

    If one player is disqualified or withdraws, prior to the completion of two rounds, their opponent is deemed the winner, even if they fail to make the cut. If both players make the cut and a player is disqualified or withdraws during the 3rd or 4th rounds, we treat the other player as the winner for settlement purposes. If the other player in the Match bet has already missed the cut, the player who has been disqualified or withdrawn, but makes the cut will be the winner. If both players are disqualified then the Match bet is void, regardless of when the player is disqualified.

    In Match betting we will always quote a price for the tie. Your bet is successful if both players finish tied for the same position.

    Tournament Group Betting

    If one of the players in a Group does not tee off in the tournament, then any bets placed on that specific player will be void. If you have placed a winning bet on other players in that Group, we may apply the equivalent to a Tattersalls Rule 4(c) to your winnings, based on the price of the player withdrawn.

    Tournament Handicap Betting

    If a player misses the cut, is disqualified, or withdraws during the tournament, then bets on that player will be settled as losers. Only the scheduled 72 holes count. Play-off holes do not count. If the tournament is shortened to less than 72 holes then all bets on the Handicap betting market are void. Only the players listed on the Handicap list count for betting purposes. Dead heat rules apply.

    2 & 3 Ball Betting

    In 2 Ball betting a price will be offered for a tie. In 3 Ball betting if players have an identical score in the round, the result will be a tie and dead heat rules will apply.

    Bets stand once the players have teed off on their first hole. If a player does not tee off, then bets on the 2 or 3 Ball they were due to take part in are void. If a round is abandoned, bets on that round are void.

    In the event of a 2 or 3 ball being rearranged, all bets on the original groupings will stand.

    Race To Dubai / US Money List

    Bets placed on the Race To Dubai / US Money List, are bets to predict which golfer tops the official money list at the end of the season, all in compete or not. In Europe it is called the 'Race To Dubai', and in the United States it is called the 'US Money List'. Bets will be determined by the overall winner following the last relevant tournament and will not be affected by any subsequent enquiries or alterations.

    Score On Hole X

    Where prices are for a player to achieve a certain score such as Birdie, Bogey, Albatross, Eagle etc on a particular hole (e.g. First Hole), bets will be settled on the score on the actual hole number (Hole with that flag number) and not the number of hole completed. For example, if Tiger Woods teed off on Hole 10 to start his round, the bet would not be settled on Tiger Woods first hole played, it would be when Tiger Woods finishes playing the first hole on the course (Flag number 1). If the selected player withdraws after teeing off on the stated hole the bet will be settled as a void. If the selected player withdraws before teeing off on the stated hole then bets will settled as be void.

Any existing score in the match is not carried forward, and so for the purposes of Period Betting, every period is considered as starting 0-0, as no goals have yet been scored in the period.

    For example, if your selected team wins a match 2-0, scoring in the 1st and 3rd periods, the period scores would be 1-0, 0-0 and 1-0. If you had bet on the team to win "2nd Period Betting - 20 mins only", although your team won the match, the winning selection for Period 2 would actually be "Draw".

    Lotto / Number Bets

    Acceptance of Bets - Bets are accepted on Irish, Spanish and New York Lottos, 49’s and Rapido. Bets are accepted on the UK Lotto and EuroMillions in ROI shops only. Unless otherwise specified, these events cannot be combined in accumulative bets, e.g. a bet on the number 41 on two consecutive 49’s draws in a double cannot be accepted.

    Shop Rules:

    Bets are accepted on all Lotto draws until a ‘no more bets’ message is given. Bets accepted after the ‘no more bets’ message will be void unless it can be confirmed that the bet was accepted prior to the draw actually starting.

    The bonuses and consolations associated with our speciality bets do not apply to Lotto bets, e.g. the double the odds bonus on one selection correct in a Lucky 15 will not be paid. If one of the scheduled draws does not take place, bets will stand for the next draw to take place unless it is cancelled by mutual consent before another draw is made.

    Incorrect Bet Instructions

    Unclear Selection - If a number detailed on a betting slip cannot be understood, the number will be treated as void and the odds will only apply to the numbers that can be understood, e.g. if a bet on the ‘3 numbers correct’ section consists of two numbers that can be understood and one number that cannot, it will be settled on the odds which apply to the ‘2 numbers correct’ section.

    Selections Repeated - If a number is repeated it will be ignored and the bet will be settled on the valid numbers chosen at the appropriate odds, e.g. if ten numbers are chosen on a Rapido bet, but the number 23 is repeated, the bet will be settled as a nine number bet (23 will only be included once).

    Error Regarding the Draw - If no draw is specified the bet will be placed on the next available draw. Where a draw is specified by date and/or time and by name, but is placed late, the bet will be void. Where a draw is specified by name, for example “lunchtime draw”, but is placed late, then it will be settled on the next draw matching the specification i.e. the following day’s lunchtime draw, unless cancelled by mutual consent prior to that draw. In the case of Rapido bets where a specific date is not included e.g. if draw 3 is specified on a Rapido slip after draw 3 has taken place, the bet will be settled on the next draw, unless cancelled by mutual consent before another draw has taken place. If the day or draw has not been specified on an Irish Lotto bet, the bet will be settled on the next main draw to take place. If the bet is placed on the 49’s then it will be settled on the next available draw. If the 6 or 7 number draw has not been specified for 49’s or Irish Lotto, the bet will be settled on the 6 number draw.

    • Irish Daily Millions: With the introduction of the 2pm Daily Millions draw, in addition to the usual 9pm draw, until further notice Ladbrokes will treat the two draws as completely separate events. Daily Millions bets for the 9pm draw can be placed via quickslips as usual, however for bets to be considered for the 2pm Daily Millions draw the bet must be written on a plain slip clearly stating that the 2pm Daily Millions draw is required. For example, any bets placed late or without clear instruction as to which draw was intended will not rollover from the 2pm draw to the 9pm draw - any rollovers will be from the 2pm draw to the following day's 2pm draw, and from the 9pm draw to the following day's 9pm draw.

    More than One Draw Selected - If more than one draw is specified, the numbers selected will apply to the number of draws in a row, e.g. if four draws are specified on a Rapido bet, the numbers selected will count for the next four Rapido draws to take place after the bet has been accepted.

    Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)

    The result as declared at the end of a fight by the official announcer will be used for settlement purposes. Any subsequent alterations to that result will not be taken into account. If the official announcer does not declare a result at the end of a fight, the market will be settled on the result displayed on the applicable organisation's official site.

    If a fight results in a draw, the Fight Result will be deemed void and all stakes returned.

    If a bout does not take place within 48 hours of the given date and time, it will be deemed void and all stakes will be returned.

    Fights deemed to be "No Contest" following an early stoppage will have all markets settled as void.

    Future Fights

    The one exception to the 48 hour rule above, is fights set up under the Future Fights sub-type. These fights have been set up before the exact date is known and will be reclassified under the correct event and date, once an official announcement has been made. These fights will only be voided if either fighter is scheduled to fight another opponent instead. Once a fight has been reclassified, it is then subject to the 48 hour rule as normal.

    Change to scheduled number of rounds

    All outright bets on the match will stand. However round by round bets will be void.

    Round Betting

    Betting on the round in which the fight result will be determined.

    If a fight is stopped before the full number of rounds have been completed, or if a fighter is disqualified and a points decision is awarded, bets will be settled on the round in which the fight was stopped.

    Total Rounds

    If a fight is stopped before the full number of rounds have been completed, or if a fighter is disqualified and a points decision is awarded, bets will be settled on the round in which the fight was stopped.

    For settlement purposes where a half round is stated then 2 minute 30 seconds of the respective round will define the ‘half’ to determine under or over. Should the round end exactly on this time then affected bets will be made void.

    Failure to come out for a round

    If a fighter fails to come out for the next round, bets will be settled on his opponent having won the bout in the previous round.

    Stoppages

    If the fight is stopped due to an injury or disqualification, either by the referee or the doctor, then this will be considered a technical KO (TKO).

    If the fight is stopped early due to damage sustained from an illegal attack, or an accidental clash of heads etc, then a technical decision may be awarded. In this instance, the time of the stoppage would be used to settle all round markets, but the result of the decision would be used to settle the 'Decision Victories' market.

    If the judges aren't able to award a technical decision then the fight may be declared a 'No Contest', and all bets will be void. 'No Contests' awarded after the fight due to a failed drug test will not be resettled, and will stand as originally declared after the fight.

    A technical submission may occur when the referee stops the fight because a fighter has sustained an injury, or become unconscious, while in a submission hold. For betting purposes all, technical submissions will be settled as submissions.

    UFC Card Specials

    Only the main card, and undercard fights will count. Early preliminaries will not be included. Bets will stand on the number of bouts scheduled to be on the full card, which includes all main card and undercard fights.

    This information will be available in the market descriptions for the event in question.

    Bets will stand so long as the exact number of bouts quoted in the market description take place. If any fighter(s) withdraw(s), and all are(is) replaced, bets will stand. If a bout is cancelled without a replacement, changing the number of bouts taking place, then all bets will be void.

    Dead heat rules will apply to the Fight of The Night, Submission of The Night and Knockout of The Night markets should two or more fights or fighters be awarded the honours.

    7s Rugby

    We accept singles on all games unless otherwise stated.

    Unless otherwise stated all rugby bets are settled on 80 minutes play (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches), which includes any injury time added on by the referee.

    Where odds for both outright and handicap betting are available, all bets will be settled on the outright price unless you have specifically requested handicap at the time your bet was placed. However, where only handicap betting is available all bets will be settled on the advertised Handicap price and conditions.

    Winning Margin

    Winning margins are for how many points the selected team will WIN BY

    Winning margin betting is from zero, no handicaps are applied.

    Extra time does not count

    For Example

    If a bet is placed on the England winning margin of 11-20 points if England win 27-8 the winning margin is 19 points so the England 11-20 points band wins , if England win 27-18 the winning margin is 9 points so the England 11-20 points band losers , in this case the winning margin band that wins is England 1-10 points.

    Correct Score

    Correct scores are for how many points the selected team will SCORE

    Correct score betting is from zero, no handicaps are applied and is for the nominated team to win by scoring that amount of points.

    Extra time does not count
    For Example

    If a bet is placed on the England correct score of 21-30 points if England win 27-8 the winning score is 27 so the England 21-30 points band wins , if England win 17-8 the winning points is 17 points so the England 21-30 points band loses, in this case the correct score band that wins is England 11-20 points.

    If a match is abandoned before 80 (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches) minutes are played, all bets on that match are void, except for those markets which have been unconditionally determined. First Tryscorer bets will stand if a try has been scored at the time the match is abandoned.

    If a match is postponed and rescheduled to take place within 48 hours of the original start time, your bet on the match will stand unless cancelled by mutual consent.

    If the match is no longer playing at the venue advertised, you bet will still stand. This applies as long as the venue has not been changed to the opponent's ground (or in the case of international matches, as long as the venue remains in the same country).

    Tryscorer Betting

    Penalty tries do not count. In the event of a penalty try, settlement goes on to the next awarded try.

    We will make every effort to quote prices for all probable players. However, prices for unquoted players will always be available on request and those players will count as winners in the event that they score.

    First Tryscorer

    In both Rugby League and Rugby Union, bets will be void if a player has not entered the field of play at any point prior to the first try being scored.

    Anytime/Last Tryscorer

    Bets will stand if a player takes any part in a game, no matter how long they play for. Money will be refunded only if a player does not enter the field of play at any stage.

    Next Tryscorer

    Requires you to predict the player that will score the next try in the match. Only available In-Play. 80 minutes only (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches), unless otherwise stated.

    All players that have taken some part in the game before the next try is scored will be deemed runners. Bets on players that do not take any part in the game before the next try is scored will be void.

    If there are no further tries scored "No Tryscorer" will be the winning selection. If no price is offered for "No Tryscorer" and no further tries are scored then all bets on the market will be void.

    Time of 1st Try

    If no try is scored in the match then the result will be deemed to be 80mins (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches). Therefore if the selections on offer are, for example, ’19 minutes and under’ and ’20 minutes and over’, then the latter will be settled as the winner.

    Wincast (Anytime Tryscorer and Match Result)

    To win you must successfully forecast a player to score a try anytime during 80 minutes (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches) and also the result of the match after 80 minutes (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches).

    Bets stand as long as your selected player plays some part in the match. If your selected player does not take any part in the match, Wincast bets revert to a single on the match result.

    If a match is abandoned prior to the completion of 80 minutes (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches), Wincast bets are settled as Anytime Tryscorer singles as long as the player played some part in the match and therefore had an opportunity to score a Try.

    Trycast (First Player to Score a Try and Match Result)

    To win you must successfully forecast both the player who will score the first try in a selected match and also the correct result after 80 minutes play (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches).

    If your selected player joins the match after the first try has been scored or does not take part in the game, Trycast bets will revert to match singles.

    For First Tryscorer purposes, penalty tries do not count, so in this circumstance, the Trycast will be settled on the scorer of the following try and the result of the game.

    If a match is abandoned prior to the completion of 80 minutes and a try has been scored, Trycast bets are settled as First Tryscorer singles. If no try has been scored, all bets are void.

    Match Betting - 2 Way

    Select which team will win the match in 80 minutes (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches). Where the match is drawn, Dead Heat rules apply.

    Match Betting - 2 Way Including Overtime

    Select which team will win the match. Where the match is drawn after 80 minutes (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches), bets will be settled on the result at the conclusion of Extra-Time, Sudden-Death or the Kicking Competition.

    20/40/60 Minute Betting

    Betting on who is winning a match at specified times throughout the match.

    Markets are settled on the score at 19:59 for the 20 minute market, 39:59 for the 40 minute market and 59:59 for the 60 minute market.

    Timed Markets

    Markets such as "Try between 00:00 and 19:59" and "Total Points between 60:00 and 80:00 - Over/Under" work on the basis of the selected scores occurring in the time frames 00:00-19:59; 20:00-the end of the first half including additional time; 40:00-59:59; and 60:00-the end of normal time (80 minutes (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches) including additional time).

    Cashout Handicaps

    Static Handicaps may be available for Cash Out (the line does not move, only the odds) and are settled in line with the Handicap Market and Cashout Rules.

    Extra Time Betting

    ‘Extra Time’ is defined as any scheduled period of play between the end of normal time (i.e. 80 minutes play plus any time added on at the end of 80 minutes (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches)) and the end of the game. ‘Extra Time’ does not include penalty shootouts.

    All Extra Time betting markets, such as total points, or time of first try will start from the beginning of extra time and not include normal time. For example, if the game finishes 24-24 at the end of normal time, and if there are ten points scored in extra time, then the extra time total points market will be settled as ten points.

    Season Match Betting

    This market allows you to bet on which side will finish higher in the table during the regular season. Performances in the play-offs are not taken in to account for settlement purposes.

    Man Of The Match

    The market will be settled as follows:

    • We will settle in accordance with the man of the match announced in commentary during the live broadcasting of the match.
    • If there is no announcement during the match, we will settle in accordance with the man of the match award presented during the live broadcasting of the match.
    • If there is no presentation during the broadcast, we will settle in accordance with the player quoted as man of the match on the broadcasting channel’s official website. For example, if the match was shown on Sky Sports, the official website would be www.skysports.com.
    • If the broadcaster's official website does not quote a player as being man of the match, we will settle on the player quoted as man of the match on the website of the governing body for that competition. For example, the IRB for all international Rugby Union, ERC for European Club Rugby Union competitions and NRL for Australian Rugby League.

    In the event that the match is shown live on two channels we will settle in the following way:

    • We will settle on the player quoted as man of the match on the website of the governing body for that competition. For example, the IRB for all international Rugby Union, ERC for European Club Rugby Union competitions and NRL for Australian Rugby League.

    If we are still unable to settle the market via the methods described above, then all bets on the Man of the Match market will be void.

    Bets placed on players that take any part in the match will stand. A bet on a player that does not take any part in the match will be void.

    We will also be able to offer a price, upon request, on any player not quoted in the market. Any unquoted player will be deemed the winner should they receive the man of the match award.

    Enhanced Multiples

    Markets such as "Both Players to Score a Try" and "Enhanced Anytime Tryscorer Double" are settled in line with our General Rules on Enhanced Prices for Multiple Bets.

    Top Tryscorer and Team To Win

    Where there is a special price for a tournament Top Tryscorer and Team To Win, any dead heat occurring in the Top Tournament Tryscorer part of the bet will be applied to the whole special bet. For example, if Rieko Ioane to be Top Tryscorer and New Zealand To Win the Tournament is 12/1, and Rieko Ioane ties for Top Tryscorer with another player, the ½ dead heat for Rieko Ioane would be applied directly to the full stake of the whole special bet before subsequent settlement at 12/1.

    7s Rugby

    Matches are played over two 7 to 10 minute periods. 'Normal Time' is therefore the scheduled length of the match, excluding extra-time, as designated by the competition governing body.

    Evictees, Eliminations, Disqualifications and Walk-outs will be considered losers in the Outright betting markets.

    If a reality TV betting event is cancelled or withdrawn, without results being declared, then outstanding bets on any market, without an official result, will be considered void.

    Unless an "Any Other" (contestant) selection is offered as an option, all reality TV events will be offered on the basis of "others on request". We will try to add new contestants to the market as soon as possible after they are known.

    Evictions/Eliminations

    We reserve the right to void all bets placed on an Eviction Market should the eviction method, or initial line up for eviction be changed. Others may be added to the market at any time.

    Bets on Next Eviction/Elimination stand regardless of how the public have voted (e.g. whether the public were voting to save the contestant, or for them to be evicted/eliminated).

    If two or more contestants are evicted/eliminated in a specific eviction/elimination market, and the order of the eviction/elimination is clear then bets will be settled accordingly. Bets on the next elimination will be settled according to the first person announced as having been eliminated from the show. This rule will apply even where, for a double elimination for example, results are announced in no particular order.

    Bets on Next Eviction/Elimination markets will be settled on the first named contestant to be evicted/eliminated in a specified week/show, regardless of how many occur that week/show. Where one or more listed participants do not take part then a Rule 4 deduction may apply.

    Specific Programme Rules

    Big Brother

    If an event is cancelled, all bets are void.

    Head to Head betting

    Where both competitors reach the final, settlement will be based on their finishing positions in the final.

    If both competitors are eliminated in the same round of a competition before the final, bets will be made void.

    Where competitors are eliminated in different rounds of a competition, the competitor progressing furthest will be the winner for settlement purposes. For example, where one competitor is eliminated in a heat, and the other competitor is eliminated in the semi-final, the competitor reaching the semi-final will be deemed the winner.

    In the event of a match starting but not being completed for any reason, all bets on that match are void, except for those markets (e.g. race to 10 points or winner of a specific game) that have been unconditionally determined.

    Set Betting (Correct Score): The bet refers to the correct final score in sets.

    Set Winner: This bet refers to winner of a specific set. The respective set must be completed for bets to stand.

    Retirements
    Tie break
    To Win/Lose 1st Set and Win the Match
    Interrupted Matches

    A tennis match is deemed to have started with the first serve of the match.

    For outright tournament betting purposes, if a player enters a tournament and subsequently withdraws prior to or during the tournament, all bets will stand and will be settled as losers.

    Match winner

    If one player withdraws (retires) or is disqualified after the first set has been completed, the player progressing to the next round or that is awarded the match by the umpire will be considered the winner. If the first set has not been completed, all Match Bets will be void.

    If a match does not reach a natural conclusion, any markets (besides Match Betting) that are not unconditionally determined will be void.

    In the event of a change to playing surface, venue or change from indoor court to outdoor and vice versa, all bets stand.

    For betting purposes, the winner is always the player who is declared the winner by the match umpire and officially advances to the next round or is declared as winner of the tournament. The same applies to “Doubles” matches.

    Set Betting

    The full number of sets required to win the match must be completed. If a player is awarded the match prior to the full number of sets being completed, all correct set betting on that match will be void.

    Bet In Play

    Current Set Winner
    If a player retires from a match whilst a set is in progress but before the set has been completed, the set shall be deemed incomplete and stakes shall be returned.

    Game by Game Betting

    There are eight possible results for a game:

    • Server wins to love
    • Server wins to 15
    • Server wins to 30
    • Server wins to deuce
    • Receiver wins to love
    • Receiver wins to 15
    • Receiver wins to 30
    • Receiver wins to deuce

    If a game is completed after an interruption for any reason, that game shall be deemed to be complete for betting purposes.

    If a game is completed by the awarding of a penalty point by the umpire, the game shall be deemed to be complete. However if a game is completed by the awarding of a penalty game by the umpire, the game shall be void, and all stakes shall be returned.

    If a player retires from a match while a game is in progress, but before that game has been completed, that game shall be deemed to be incomplete and all stakes shall be returned.
    Bets on a game which subsequently becomes a tie break will be settled as void.


    Set by Set Betting

    If a player retires from a match while a set is in progress, but before that set has been completed, that set shall be deemed to be incomplete and all stakes shall be returned.


    Handicap Betting

    This bet is based on the number of games each player wins in a given match. E.g. a player given a 3.5 game start on the handicap, who loses 7-6, 7-6, 7-6, would be the winner for handicap betting purposes.

    If a player is awarded the match due to a withdrawal prior to the full number of sets being completed, all handicap bets on that match will be void unless, at the time of the withdrawal, the result of the handicap betting is already determined.


    IPTL (International Premier Tennis League)

    Substitute Players

    If during a set a player is substituted, ALL bets including "bet in play" will stand.

    If a set doesn't start with the players indicated, ALL bets on that set will be void.

    Set Winner

    If the Team Match goes to Overtime, the final Set Winner will be settled as the first Player to 6 Games; from this point onwards all bets struck In-Play will be on the Team to win the Match.

    Total Games

    Bets on the total number of games in a match will be over/under a particular number, e.g. 21.5 games.

    In the event of a retirement, bets will be void unless at the time of the withdrawal the result of the total games is already determined

    e.g. If a match is abandoned at 6-4 4-4, bets on Over/Under 19.5 games or fewer in the match are settled as winners/losers respectively, since any conclusion to the match would have to have had at least 20 games.

    A Champions Tie Break will count as 1 game for the purpose of Game Handicap Bets.

    Game Handicap Betting
    The bet is based on the number of games each player wins in a given match. E.G. a player given a +2.5 game handicap who loses a match 7-6 7-6, would be the winner for handicap betting purposes.

    In the event of a retirement, the same logic which applies to the total games in a set or match applies to handicap bets. For example, a player retires at 6-4 4-6 4-4; handicap bets of +/- 2.5 games would be settled as won/lost since neither player can win by more than 2 games. Bets on +/- 1.5 games would be void as the result is not determined.

    A Champions Tie Break will count as 1 game for the purpose of Game Handicap Bets.

    Set Handicap Betting

    The bet is based on the number of sets each player wins in a given match, e.g. a player given a +1.5 set handicap who loses a match 6-4 4-6 7-6 would be deemed the winner as they have covered the handicap.
    In the event of a retirement or disqualification, bets will be void unless the result is already determined at the time of retirement. 

    A Champions Tie Break will count as 1 game for the purpose of Set Handicap Bets.

    Retirements
    Markets which cannot be played to their natural conclusion without unconditionally affecting the outcome of a bet will be settled in the event of a retirement (excluding Match Winner).
    All bets that have been settled or are determined (i.e. the outcome is already decided) at the time a player retires are valid and will be settled accordingly (including cashed out bets). All bets that are not decided at the time a player retires are void.
    Disqualifications are subject to the same settlement rules as retirements.

    Match/Game/Set.Tie-Break Definition
    A match/set/game/tie-break is deemed to have taken place as soon as its first ball has been played but the outcome of the set/game/tie-break is not decided before the set/game/tie-break is completed. If one point in a tiebreak is played prior to a retirement/withdrawal, ‘Will there be a tie break in the match’ would be settled as ‘Yes’.

    Tie Break
    A tiebreak is counted as one game for betting purposes. A set which finishes 7-6 is deemed to include 13 games, rather than 12 games + a tie break.

    If a match is decided by a "Match Tie-break" instead of a final set, then the Match Tie-break counts as a set for betting purposes.
    For tennis matches that use the Match Tiebreak (in place of a final set), in the event that the next game turns out to be a Match Tiebreak, bets on the following markets will all be settled as void:

    • Next Game Winner
    • Next Game Score Betting
    • Next Game Points
    • Next Game to go to Deuce

    If the next game is a regular game (i.e. not a Match Tiebreak) then bets will be settled as usual

    To Win/Lose 1st Set and Win the Match
    If either player withdraws from the match before the first set finishes, then bets will be void. If the first set has been completed, then the match part of the bet will be determined by the player awarded the match and bets will be settled.

    Interrupted Matches
    If a match is interrupted or postponed, the bets within the framework of the tournament will remain valid until the match is completed. An interruption or overnight suspension of a match is not grounds for a bet to be void.

    Continued Matches (After Suspension Of Play)
    In case of interruptions, the continuation of the match can be offered, including the result at the time of the interruption. This continuation will be deemed a new match for betting purposes. In case a match is interrupted and not resumed, then all bets on the continuation (including the result at the time of the interruption) of the match are void.

    Who Will Win/Play More Games In Round X
    The winner of a bet is the player who wins/plays the most games after comparing two players in the same round of a tournament. It is not important whether one of the two players wins or loses his match. For the purposes of this bet, only the games won/played by each player will be counted (a tie-break is counted as a game).

    Team Competitions (Davis Cup, Federation Cup, Hopman Cup, Laver Cup etc)
    All bets on the winner of the team competition are valid as soon as the first ball of the first match is played. In the event of the retirement of one of the teams, the winner of the bet will be the team officially declared the winner by the respective governing body

    Outright Betting/Quarter Betting/Half Betting
    Bets are settled as All in play or not. If a player enters a tournament and subsequently withdraws prior to or during the tournament, all bets will stand and will be settled as losers.

    Winning Quarter/Winning Half
    The tournament must be completed for bets to stand.

    To Reach the Final
    Bets are settled as All in play or not.

    Cash Out
    All bets where ‘cash out’ has been accepted prior to a retirement will remain settled.
    ‘Cash Out’ is not guaranteed to be available for the entirety of a match (see specific cash out rules below).
    Cash Out Guide

    Aside from the following special betting rules, the general betting rules apply. The special rules will take precedence over the general rules nevertheless.

    Set Winner: This bet refers to winner of a specific set. The respective set must be completed as per the rules of the individual competition for bets to stand.

    Nominated Finalists: The finalists are the teams that really contend the final regardless of how they get there, including decisions made by any governing bodies.

    Team to be Relegated: This bets relates to the teams, which occupy the relegation places at the end of the season. All future changes, which may occur for whatever reason, are deemed irrelevant for this bet.

    If the match is no longer playing at the venue advertised, you bet will still stand. This applies as long as the venue has not been changed to the opponent's ground (or in the case of international matches, as long as the venue remains in the same country).
