Sportsbook Rules and Regulations

Part A - Introduction

  1. Use and interpretation

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

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

The Sportsbook Rules consist of the following:

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

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

  1. Customer responsibility

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

  1. Customer betting disputes

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

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

If you have a complaint related to betting transactions, gaming or to your account that Betfair cannot resolve satisfactorily, you can request the National Office for Gambling (NOG - the Romanian gambling regulator) to investigate, by sending an e-mail to: office@onjn.gov.ro.

In addition, when a customer has exhausted the internal Betfair betting dispute process without a satisfactory outcome, they may submit their betting dispute to an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) entity. You may find information regarding Dispute Resolution here

2.3Non Runners

  1. Abandonments, Cancellations, Postponements
    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, where a market has no rules in the Specific Sports Rules in relation to anabandonment, cancellation and/or postponement the following shall apply.
    • In relation to any match, fixture, game, individual event, race or similar: If the event is not completed within three days after the scheduled completion date, then all bets on markets for this event will be void, except for bets on any markets that have been unconditionally determined.
    • In relation to any tournament, competition or similar: If the event is not completed within three days after the scheduled completion date of the event, then any markets relating to the event will be settled in accordance with the official ruling of the relevant governing body, providing such a decision is given within 90 days after the scheduled completion date. If no official ruling is announced in this 90 day period, then bets on any market relating to this event will be void, except for bets on any markets which have been unconditionally determined. If a market is to be voided but has been part-settled as a courtesy to Betfair customers, then such part-settled bets will be reversed and all bets on the market will be void.
    • If there is no further sporting action in any market that does not contain the selection ‘draw’ or ‘tie’, all bets placed after this conclusion of action will be voided.
    • Betfair will decide (acting reasonably) whether a market relates to a match (or similar) or a tournament (or similar). However, by way of example, the following shall apply:
  1. Europa League outright = tournament;
  2. Champions League Group outright = tournament;
  3. Top Premiership goalscorer = tournament;
  4. 72-hole Golf Match bet = match;
  5. Ryder Cup outright = tournament;
  6. Golf tournament outright = tournament;
  7. Tennis Tournament outright = tournament;
  8. 5-day Cricket Test Match = match;
  9. Ashes Series outright winner = tournament;
  10. Motor Race (e.g. Grand Prix) = match.
  1. Change of venue
    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if change of venue is not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules then the following shall apply:
    • For any team sport: if the scheduled venue is changed after a bet is placed, all bets will be void only if the new venue is a home ground of the original away team.
    • For all categories or markets other than team sports: if the scheduled venue is changed after a bet is placed, all bets will stand.
    • If there is a change in the type of scheduled surface (e.g. a hockey match switching from grass to astro-turf) after a bet is placed, all bets will stand.
  2. Periods of time
    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules then the following shall apply.
    • If the scheduled duration of an event is changed after a bet is placed but before the start of the event, then all bets will be void.
    • Some markets refer to the length of time until an occurrence in the event (e.g. time of first goal). If an event happens in stoppage or injury time after any regular time period then it will be deemed to have occurred at the end of the regular time period. For example, if a goal is scored in first half stoppage-time in a soccer match it will be deemed to have occurred on 45 minutes.
    • All bets apply to the relevant full ‘regular time’ period including stoppage time. Any extra-time and/or penalty shoot-out is not included.
    • References within these Rules and Regulations to a particular number of ‘days’ shall mean the end of the day local time after the expiry of the specified number of days. For example, if a rugby match is scheduled for the 1st of December, then the rule that allows the match to be completed within three days after the scheduled completion date (see Paragraph 3 above) would mean that the deadline for completion of that match would be 23.59:59 on the 4th of December.
  3. "To qualify" markets
    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules then the following shall apply.
    • Any 'to qualify' market (e.g. "to reach the final" markets) will be determined by the competitor or team that progresses, whether or not they take part in the next round or event for which they have qualified. Markets will be settled after the qualifying stage and any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result will not count.
  4. Dead heats
    • Unless stated otherwise in the Specific Sports Rules the Dead Heat Rule applies to bets on a market where there are more winners than expected.
    • Dead heat is a term that describes when two or more selections in an event tie. If a “dead-heat” between two selections is declared on any event, half the stake is applied to the selection at full odds and the other half is lost. If more than two “dead-heats” are declared, the stake is proportioned accordingly.
  5. Errors
    • Betfair makes every effort to ensure that it does not make any errors when accepting bets. However, if as a result of technical or system problems or human error, a bet is accepted that is at odds (which includes handicap provisions or similar) and/or is on terms that are either:
    •  materially different from those available in the general betting market at the time the bet was made; or
    • clearly incorrect given the chance of the event occurring at the time the bet was made including, in either case, because the bet was placed after the start of an event, because the market was not displaying or reflecting in-play status, or because of any other reason, then all bets will stand HOWEVER Betfair will settle winning bets at the ‘correct price’.
    • To establish the ‘correct price’, Betfair will consider prices available in the general betting market at the time the bet was made, including the prices offered by other major betting operators.
  1. Maximum winnings
    • For all events listed below, the maximum payout limits apply on a per day basis.. If you place a bet that exceeds the applicable limits for a particular event, the relevant maximum payouts will still apply.
    • The maximum payout limits refer to the total returns on your bets, excluding your original stake.
    • The maximum payout limits apply to any one customer or group of customers acting together, backing the same combination of selections, regardless of whether or not such bets are struck separately, at a range of different prices, on different days and through a number of different accounts. If Betfair believes that a number of bets have been placed in this way, the total payment of all those bets combined will be limited to one single maximum payout.
    • The maximum payouts shown below are shown in sterling. If bets are placed in another currency, the maximum payout will be converted using the applicable exchange rate on the day of settlement of the bets.
    • The maximum payout for bonus payouts such as ‘Lucky 15s’ and ‘Best Odds Guaranteed’ is £50,000 per day.
    • For all events listed below, the maximum payout limits apply on a per day basis. If you place a bet that exceeds the applicable limits for a particular event, the relevant maximum payouts will still apply.
    • The maximum payout limits refer to the total returns on your bets, excluding your original stake.
    • The maximum payout limits apply to any one customer or group of customers acting together, backing the same combination of selections, regardless of whether or not such bets are struck separately, at a range of different prices, on different days and through a number of different accounts. If Betfair believes that a number of bets have been placed in this way, the total payment of all those bets combined will be limited to one single maximum payout.
    • The maximum payouts shown below are shown in sterling. If bets are placed in another currency, the maximum payout will be converted using the applicable exchange rate on the day of settlement of the bets.
    •  The following maximum payout limits will apply to the events shown (please note: if a multiple bet has been placed which involves events with different maximum payout limits, the lowest applicable maximum payout limit will apply to the whole of your multiple bet – for example, if you place a multiple bet on English Premier League football matches and on a golf tournament, your winnings will be capped at £100,000 and not £1,000,000):

  1. Multiples
    • Betfair currently offers two types of multiples bets, ‘Exchange Multiples’ and ‘Fixed Odds Multiples’.. These Sportsbook Rules only apply to Betfair’s ‘Fixed Odds Multiples’. To see the rules that apply to ‘Exchange Multiples’ please see the Multiples section of the Exchange Rules and Regulations.
    • A multiple bet consists of a number of legs. A leg is defined as one or more chosen selections in any individual event market.
    • Betfair reserves the right in its sole discretion not to accept certain multiple bets or to scale back stakes.
    • All multiple bets placed are subject to the Sportsbook Rules that apply to each individual sport that relates to any leg of any multiple bet.
    • If any selection in any leg is a non-runner or otherwise void under the Sportsbook Rules (e.g. an abandoned match) then all bets on that individual leg will be void and the Fixed Odds Multiple bet shall be adjusted accordingly. For example a treble including one void leg will become a double. If that voided legs mean that an individual bet within a multiple becomes a single bet, then this single bet will stand.
    • Multiple bets combining different selections within the same event are not accepted when there are related contingencies (i.e. where the outcome of one event is likely to affect the odds on the outcome of another event). The rejection of related contingency bets may happen automatically at the bet placement stage. However, if such a bet is taken in error, Betfair may settle the individual bet combinations which include two or more of the related contingency selections, as single bets.
    • ‘Lucky 15/31/63’ bet types - this multiple bet includes singles and upwards on 4, 5 or 6 selections respectively. The bonuses and consolations on this bet are available for certain markets only. The current applicable markets are horseracing daily race winner markets with the exception of ante-post markets. If this bet is accepted in error for any other type of market it will be settled without the bonuses or consolations. Your win single will be settled at "double odds" if only one of your selections win. For each-way bets, the bonus is only applicable to the win part of the bet. Bets containing non-runners or void selections will not qualify for win bonuses or consolations. The following bullet-points set out the number of bets that each Lucky bet type contains and the applicable bonus:
      • Lucky 15 (4 selections) comprises: 4 Singles, 6 Doubles, 4 Trebles and 1 Fourfold. A 10% bonus will be added to your winnings if all 4 selections win.
      • Lucky 31 (5 selections) comprises: 5 Singles, 10 Doubles, 10 Trebles, 5 Fourfolds and 1 Fivefold. A 20% bonus will be added to your winnings if all 5 selections win.
      • Lucky 63 (6 selections) comprises: 6 Singles, 15 Doubles, 20 Trebles, 15 Fourfolds, 6 Fivefolds and 1 Sixfold. A 25% bonus will be added to your winnings if all 6 selections win.
  1. Rules for Tote Betting
    • From time to time Betfair may offer the facility for customers to place Tote bets. In such circumstances Betfair will place these bets directly into the relevant pools and the rules as applied by the relevant Tote (for example, the UK Tote, Irish Tote or relevant US racetrack Tote) will apply.
  2. Cash Out
    • Cash Out is a feature which is offered on various singles and multiples Sportsbook bets. Cash Out allows you to amend your original bet and lock in a profit or a loss by settling your bet (or a portion of your bet) early, without having to wait for the event to finish.
    • If you make a Cash Out request, you will be notified whether or not your request has been successful. Your request to Cash Out is not guaranteed to be accepted and may be unsuccessful if, for example, the market suspends or the odds move before your request has been processed.
    • If your Cash Out request is successful, a ‘success’ message will be shown and your bet (or the relevant portion of your bet) will be settled immediately and any winnings returned to your account equal to the amount shown on the Cash Out button. Note that this includes the original stake (or portion of your stake) and the total amount returned to your account will be the amount shown on the Cash Out button. For a full Cash Out, the bet is settled and any subsequent events will have no impact on the amount returned to your account. For a partial Cash Out, part of your bet is settled and any subsequent events will only impact on the portion of your bet which you have not Cashed Out.
    • If your Cash Out request is unsuccessful, a message will be shown which gives the reason why and a new Cash Out offer may be offered to you.
    • Cash Out requests made in-play may take longer to process because of the in-play bet delay.
    • Cash Out is not currently available on all Betfair markets - a Cash Out icon will be displayed for the markets that support Cash Out. See the Help page for more details on when Cash Out may not be available.
    • Using Cash Out may mean you will opt out of and no longer be eligible for a particular promotion (e.g. Acca Insurance). See the terms and conditions of the promotion for further details.
    • Betfair reserves the right to reverse the settlement of a Cash Out if the bet or a market is settled in error (for example, a human or technical error). If Betfair resettles a bet, this may lead to amendments being made to a customer's balance to reflect changes in bet settlement.
    • Betfair reserve the right to suspend or disable the Cash Out feature at any time.
  3. Acca Edge
    • Applies to Sportsbook (fixed odds) accumulator bets only.
    • Not available for each-way accumulators, SP accumulators, bets placed with free bet tokens or permutation multiples (Yankee, Lucky 15 etc.).
    • Stakes are returned as cash.
    • Acca EDGE must be ticked at the time of bet placement and you must receive confirmation from Betfair that it has been ‘applied’.
    • You acknowledge that the odds with Acca EDGE may be different from the odds of the bet without Acca EDGE.
    • Acca EDGE will become void if any leg is settled void or any leg is subject to a Dead Heat Reduction. In such circumstances the bet will revert to a normal accumulator bet without the Acca EDGE and be priced based on the original leg prices taken at bet placement.
    • Bets placed with Acca EDGE are available for Cash Out, however any Cash Out (partial or full) will render Acca EDGE void.
    • Betfair reserves the right to suspend or disable the Acca EDGE feature at any time.
  4. Yes/No
    • Yes/No is a concept that rephrases traditional markets such that the selections become ‘Yes’ and ‘No’, and the markets become a question.
    • The Yes/No football coupon presents the markets “Will {Team A} beat {Team B}?” and “Will {Team B} beat {Team A}?”, with the former showing by default.
    • The Live Score of each event on the football coupon, if available, is not affected when the user ‘Flips the question’.
    • Betfair reserve the right to settle the individual markets within the Yes/No Quiz based on the available information.
    • Free bet tokens can be used on standard Yes/No markets (excluding ‘Yes/No Quiz’ bets) when allowed by the terms of the promotion for which they are received.
  5. Yes/No Quiz
    • The ‘Yes/No Quiz’ is a series of questions curated by Betfair relating to the day’s or the week’s sporting events.
    • When placing a ‘Yes/No Quiz’ bet, Betfair breaks down the customer’s total stake and places two separate bets such that the advertised returns are possible.
    • ‘Yes/No Quiz’ bets are not placed through the betslip, but through the Quiz Module itself.
    • ‘Yes/No Quiz’ bets cannot be combined with selections from other markets.
    • Betfair reserve the right to settle the individual markets within the ‘Yes/No Quiz’ based on the available information.
    • Free bet tokens cannot be used to place ‘Yes/No Quiz’ bets
  6. Miscellaneous
    • Betfair reserves the right in its sole discretion not to accept certain Sportsbook bets, or to scale back the stakes.
    • All references to time periods in the Sportsbook Rules relate to the time zone in which the event takes place. For example, a reference to the start time of a football match, relates to the local kick-off time.
    • All information supplied by Betfair is done so in good faith. However, Betfair cannot accept liability for any errors or omissions in respect of any information, such as the posting of prices, runners, times, scores, results or general statistics.
    • Any results or scores of which you may be advised by a Betfair employee or agent (for example during betting in-play) are provided for guidance purposes only.
    • Customers are responsible for ensuring that they satisfy themselves that the selection on which they place a bet is their intended selection. For example, in the case of a competitor bearing the same name as another individual not competing in the relevant event, the onus is on the customer to ensure that they know which competitor is being referred to in the relevant market and to ensure that they are placing their bet on their chosen competitor.
    • Betfair reserves the right at any time in its sole and absolute discretion to suspend an Exchange market without suspending any corresponding or related Sportsbook or Fixed Odds market, or to suspend or stop offering a Sportsbook or Fixed Odds market without suspending any corresponding or related Exchange market.
    • Please be aware that if you place related or corresponding bets on a combination of Betfair’s Exchange, Sportsbook, Fixed Odds and/or Multiples products (and/ or the betting products of other third parties), it is possible for bets on one product to be voided in accordance with Betfair’s terms and conditions, while bets on another product may stand. You should note that Betfair will have no liability to you in the event that one or more of your bets on Betfair’s products are amended or voided in accordance with Betfair’s terms and conditions, even if your other related bets stand (and even if you have specifically relied on bets you have placed on one product in order to place related bets on another product).
    • Betfair may, in its sole and absolute discretion, decide to suspend betting on a market at any time (even if such suspension is earlier than anticipated by the Sportsbook Rules). In the interests of maintaining integrity and fairness in the markets, Betfair may also void certain bets in a market or void a whole market in its entirety.
    • Betfair reserves the right to amend the Sportsbook Rules at any time. Any such revision will be binding and effective immediately on the posting out to customers of such rule changes and any bets accepted after the rule changes have been posted shall be governed by the new Sportsbook Rules.
    • The Sportsbook Rules have been prepared in English but provided to the players in Romanian language in order to observe the legal requirements. In the event of any differences between the English version and the Romanian version, the Romanian version shall prevail.
    • Betfair Sportsbook promotions are available at the discretion of Betfair and Betfair reserves the right to restrict the availability of a promotion to any person at its absolute discretion.

    • Betfair reserves the right to suspend any market at any time.
    • For the purposes of our markets, we will define an eviction as the permanent expulsion from the house of contestant or contestants. Therefore, fake evictions will not be considered as winners.

    • Betfair reserves the right to apply a dead heat reduction on any event where more winners are declared than were originally specified.
    • In the event of the series been cancelled before an official winner is declared, bets will be settled as a dead heat between the contestants that have not been eliminated. Outright bets on contestants already eliminated will be treated as losing selections.

    • In Mixed Martial Arts: if the referee, corner or doctor calls a stop to the fight due to injury, laceration, vision or dislocation, the winner will be deemed winner by Technical KO. If the fight has gone to the 3rd round (non title fight) or 5th round (title fight) and this happens, it will go to the judges’ scorecards for a Technical decision.
    • If one of the boxers is disqualified they will be deemed a loser.

    • Interest Rate – MPC’ markets – bets will be settled depending on the value of the UK Base Rate (the “Rate”) after the next scheduled Bank of England (MPC) meeting. If a Rate change is announced before the scheduled meeting and the scheduled meeting goes ahead, Betfair will settle this market on what the Rate is immediately after the scheduled meeting.  If a Rate change is announced before the scheduled meeting and the scheduled meeting is cancelled (or does not take place at the scheduled time and date), Betfair will void all bets that are matched after the time of the Rate change announcement and will settle this market on the newly announced Rate.  If the Rate percentage announced is in any increment other than the standard (i.e. x.00, x.25, x.50 or x.75), Betfair will void this market (for example, 4.33% will result in the market being void).
  2. GAA
    • Extra time not included (unless otherwise stated). Markets settled on the 60/70 minute result.

    • Average points. League/Championship This market will be settled based on the average score obtained by the named player over the course of the entire league or championship campaign (including semi-final and final). The named player must start a minimum of 3 league game for bets to stand.

However extra-time and penalty shoot-outs are not included. The only exceptions are for: matches that are scheduled for a lesser duration (e.g. 60, 70 or 80) as agreed by the laws of the competition in which they are competing or agreed by both sides prior to kick-off. In such cases, all bets will be settled at the end of the agreed game length which includes time added on by the referee for stoppages whether the game length is advertised by Betfair or not. 
    • For ‘Extra-Time’ markets, bets apply to 30 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any added injury or stoppage time. However extra-time and penalty shoot-outs are not included. In ‘Extra-Time’ markets, bets apply to the result during the extra-time period only. For the purposes of this market the score shall be deemed to be 0-0 at the start of the extra-time period.  
    • In circumstances where over 90% of the scheduled match time has been completed and the referee ends the match before the allotted time has elapsed then we will use that result for the settlement of all bets placed on the game. Otherwise, if a match starts but is later abandoned or postponed and Betfair believes that the match will not have been completed by 23:59 (local time) on its scheduled start date, then all markets, with the exception of any unconditionally determined markets, will be void unless Betfair has knowledge that the match has been rescheduled to be played within three days of its original start date. If Betfair does have knowledge that the game will be played within three days and the game is played within three days, then all bets will stand except if the match is restarted from the beginning. If the match is restarted from the beginning then all bets matched before the market went in-play will stand, but any bets placed in-play will be void, except for any bets placed in-play on markets which have been unconditionally determined, which will stand.
    • If a match has not started (or if Betfair believes that a match will not have started) by 23:59 (local time) on its scheduled start date, then all bets will be void unless Betfair has knowledge that the match has been rescheduled to be played within three days of its original start date.

If a friendly match starts but is later abandoned or postponed and is not completed (i.e. the full duration of play according to match officials, plus any stoppage time) within three days of the scheduled start date, all bets will be void except for those on markets which have been unconditionally determined. In the case of ambiguity over the official result from match officials, the outcome will be determined by Betfair (acting reasonably) using information from independent sources.
    • If an official fixture lists different team details to those listed on the Betfair website (for example, the team name, reserves, age group, gender, etc), then all bets matched on the affected markets will be void. In all other cases, bets will stand (including instances where a team name is listed without specifying the term 'XI' in the name).
    • If a team is disqualified, thrown out or otherwise removed from a league before the relevant season has started then all bets involving that team will be made void.
    • 'Shirt numbers' bets will refer to the shirt number allocated at the start of the match. 'Shirt numbers' bets will include own-goal scorers. Any player whose shirt bears no number will be allocated the number 12.
    • For 'time of first goal' bets (i.e. "First Goal Odds" markets), the first half is deemed to last 45 minutes, regardless of stoppage time. Also for these markets, please note that the "0 - 10 Minutes" selection covers the first 10 minutes of the match. In other words, it runs from 0:00 until just before the clock hits 10:00. The "11 – 20 Minutes" selection runs from 10:00 until just before the clock hits 20:00. The same principle applies to each of the other selections in this market.
    • For FIFA Man of the Match markets, the market will be settled based on the official ‘Man of the Match’ as determined by FIFtotA.   If FIFA fail to declare an official Man of the Match for any reason, all bets will be void.
    • For domestic games live on Sky Sports the market will be settled based on who Sky give the award to during their live broadcast. If no award is made during the live broadcast the result will be settled as the player who is listed as the man of the match in the match report on skysports.com. If the result on skysports.com is different from the result of the Sky live broadcast then the markets will be settled on the result from the live broadcast. For live domestic games on BT Sports, BBC and ITV Man of the match bets will also be settled in accordance to who the broadcaster names during the programme. In the case of games on these channels, if no player is named during the programme then all bets will be voided. The player must be specifically named as the man of the match and not just simply referred to as the man of the match by one of the pundits.
    • For matches that are broadcast live on Sky Sports as well as another channel, preference for settlement will be given to Sky Sports unless Betfair have specifically outlined in the naming of the market that the result will be settled on the official tournament or sponsor award.
    • Likewise an official tournament or sponsor award outlined in the naming of the market take precedence over the BT, BBC, and ITV pundit’s award.
    • Any player who takes the field for any part of a match will be deemed as a runner for settlement purposes. Only players not in the squad or unused substitutes will be deemed non-runners.

    • In the ‘International Premier Tennis League’, teams are permitted, at any time before or during an individual match, to substitute one player for another player on the same team. In ‘International Premier Tennis League’ markets, if a substitution occurs before the first point of any individual match, then all bets placed on that match prior to that substitution will be void.  If a substitution is made after the first point of an individual match, then all bets made prior to the substitution will stand and Betfair will settle that market as if no substitution has occurred.

Live specials market rules

Which player from this list will score first from the Premier League games kicking off at 3pm (Scheduled)? The result will be determined by the time on the match clock, not by the actual time. For example, if a game (Game A) actually kicks off at 15:03:00 and the first goal in that game is 15:07:01, the goal will be settled as the 5th minute. And a game (Game B) that kicks off at 15:00:00 and the first goal in that game 15:05:01, the goal is settled as the 6th minute, meaning that Game A would have the first goalscorer.  Dead Heat rules apply if the first goal is scored by more than one player in the same minute of their respective games.  Bets on players who take no part in the match or who come on as a substitute after the first goal is scored will be void. Own goals do not count for this market. If any of the 3pm games are postponed all bets will be void. If any of the 3pm games are abandoned before half time all bets will be void, unless the result has already been determined. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.

In which minute will the first Premier League goal for this week’s 3pm (Scheduled) kick offs be scored? For 'time of first goal' bets (i.e. "First Goal Odds" markets), the first half is deemed to last 45 minutes, regardless of stoppage time. Also for these markets, please note that the "0 - 5 Minutes" selection covers the first 5 minutes of the match. In other words, it runs from 0:00 until just before the clock hits 05:00. The "6 – 10 Minutes" selection runs from 05:00 until just before the clock hits 10:00. The same principle applies to each of the other selections in this market. If any of the 3pm games are postponed all bets will be void. If any of the 3pm games are abandoned before half time all bets will be void, unless the result has already been determined. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.

If one or more of the matches do not go ahead, then they will be deemed non-runners and the original price will be reduced by the price of the said match(es)  For example…. ‘All League 1 Over 1.5 goals’ –  There are 5 matches due to play  and they’ve all been enhanced to 1.2 (1/5) for over 1.5 goals to make an enhanced fivefold of 2.49 (just under 6/4). If one of the teams does not play, then the bet price will be reduced to 2.07. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.

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

 

Will a penalty be awarded in the week’s Premier League 3pm (Scheduled) Kick Offs? If any of the 3pm games are postponed all bets will be void. If any of the 3pm games are abandoned before half time all bets will be void, unless the result has already been determined. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.

Will there be a red card awarded in the week’s Premier League 3pm (Scheduled) Kick Offs? Will a player be shown a red card during this match? Cards will only count that are shown to players after they take the pitch for the first time and before they leave the pitch for the final time.
