  1. General Betting Terms and Conditions

2.1 Right to Refuse/Limit Bets

Bizabets is not obliged to accept any bet or type of bet. Accordingly, Bizabets reserves the right to refuse the whole or part of any bet without offering any explanation.

2.2 Correction of Errors

2.2.1 Bizabets recognizes that whilst it takes all possible steps to prevent errors during the course of betting transactions, errors may arise as a result of, inter alia, computer hardware and or computer software or human errors. Such errors may include the failure of the computer system to reject certain betting transactions e.g. related bets or betting transactions that exceed the limit impositions or reflect the incorrect odds or handicaps or have an event (other than an in-running event), open after the scheduled start time. In all these events Bizabets shall be entitled to correct these errors or cancel the betting transactions. Bizabets will endeavour to communicate with the customer with regard to any correction/cancellation, the failure by the customer to receive such communication shall not entitle the customer to contend for the existence of a valid and binding betting transaction.

2.2.2 Bizabets reserves the right to correct any errors in odds offered by Bizabets at any time by substituting the corrected odds as determined by Bizabets, in its sole discretion in respect of the event concerned, for the original Bizabets price, regardless of whether or not the bet has been struck, in which event you will be deemed to have been offered and where applicable, accepted and accordingly the bet to have been struck at the corrected odds.

2.2.3 Bizabets reserves the right to correct any errors in sports betting handicaps offered by Bizabets at any time by substituting the corrected sports betting handicaps as determined by Bizabets, in its sole discretion in respect of the event concerned, regardless of whether or not the bet has been struck, in which event you will be deemed to have been offered and where applicable, accepted the corrected sports betting handicaps and accordingly the bet to have been struck at the corrected sports betting handicaps.

2.2.4 If a customer should realise or suspect that Bizabets’ computer system and/or its employees or agents may have made an error in accepting a betting transaction, then the customer is urged to communicate with Bizabets to determine whether in fact an error has taken place and thereby avoid the potential dispute and disappointment when the betting transaction concerned has been corrected or cancelled. It must be borne in mind that the Limpopo Gambling Board has held that Bizabets (and other bookmakers) may, in compliance with its terms and conditions, retrospectively void or amend bets which were erroneously accepted in conflict with the company’s terms and conditions.

2.2.5 Bizabets reserves the right to correct results where they have been previously incorrectly processed and paid. Bizabets accounts which have been incorrectly credited with incorrect winnings as a result will be adjusted to reflect the corrected position or where customers are incorrectly paid in cash with incorrect winnings, then the incorrect winnings will be deducted from customers’ Bizabets account, and account holders hereby authorise Bizabets to do so and also waive all and any claim which they may have against Bizabets for payment of any amount incorrectly credited to their accounts or incorrectly paid to them in cash.

2.2.6 Any error in venue, time, date, team composition, identity of any competitor or result of any past event in respect of any event advertised by Bizabets, shall not entitle the customer to a refund of stakes or to avoid the bet concerned.

2.3 Acceptance of Bets

2.3.1 For a bet to be accepted by Bizabets, it must be a valid bet.

2.3.1.1 A valid bet is:

2.3.1.1.1 One which has been offered by Bizabets;

2.3.1.1.8 Is not a void bet as may be determined elsewhere in the terms and conditions.

Bizabets shall not be obliged to accept a bet or pay out monies in respect of a bet that is not a valid bet.

If you have any doubts as to whether a bet has been accepted and is accordingly valid you should view your list of “pending” bets or check with a member of Bizabets’ staff.

2.3.2 Cash bets – the onus is on the customer to check the ticket as no bets may be amended or cancelled after the commencement of the bet.

Once a transaction code or ticket has been logged or issued to you, bets may not be cancelled or changed by you under any circumstance. It is your responsibility to ensure that the details of all bets are correct. If you dispute the nature, type and odds in respect of any bet Bizabets’ transaction log database will be final and binding in determining the outcome of that dispute.

2.3.3 Customers can only bet up to the amount held within their account. No credit bets will be accepted by Bizabets.

A customer shall not, at any time, use any amount that has been incorrectly credited to his betting account as a result of

  • an incorrect deposit entry (whether done erroneously or deliberately and fraudulently),
  • a prohibited betting transaction,
  • an incorrect result or
  • incorrect for any reason and which does not rightfully accrue to him.

Bizabets shall be entitled to void any and all winning betting transactions where applicable and claim from the customer all amounts wagered on unsuccessful betting transactions

  • You are not prohibited from entering into the bet by any term of your contract of employment or any rule of a sport governing body that applies to you.

  • You are not a self-excluded person

  • Where the bet is placed on the outcome of a race, competition or other event or process or on the likelihood of anything occurring or not occurring (‘the event’), you do not know the outcome of the event.

In the event that any representation made by you proving to be false, your stake shall be forfeited and Bizabets shall not be obliged to pay any winnings which might otherwise have been payable in respect of the bet.

2.3.5 If Bizabets, in its sole discretion, believes or has reason to believe that the bettor is using a nom de plume (i.e. betting under an assumed name), with or without the other person’s permission, then the customer agrees that he/she shall forfeit all stakes in respect of such bets and Bizabets shall not be obliged to pay any winnings which might otherwise have been payable in respect of the bets. In all instances, the onus to prove the validity of the bet shall rest with the customer.

Furthermore, Bizabets reserves its right to freeze all accounts which it, in its sole discretion, believes or has reason to believe are suspicious pending an investigation by the relative authorities, be they SARS and/or FICA investigators, and personal verification by Bizabets or its appointed agents.

2.3.6 You are solely responsible for the security and confidentiality of your account. In particular, you agree to keep your username, password and/or PIN strictly confidential and you are responsible for any misuse of your password and/or PIN. Provided that we have been correctly supplied with the account information requested, we are entitled to assume that offers and payments are made by you. You should change your password on a regular basis and never disclose it to any third party. You undertake to protect your username and password in the same way that you would in respect of your bank cards and any failure to do so shall be at your sole risk and expense.

If another person accesses your account, you are solely responsible for all their actions whether or not their access was authorised by you and you hereby indemnify Bizabets and hold Bizabets harmless against all costs, claims, expenses and damages howsoever arising in connection with the use of or access to your account by any third party.

2.3.7 All bets on contingencies which have already arisen, or where you could have an indication of the outcome at the time of placing the bet, or where Bizabets has continued to accept bets on an event which should have been suspended for any reason, shall be void. Any bet placed after the start of an event and not identified as “IN RUNNING” or “IN PLAY” shall also be void. If you dispute the time at which a bet was placed, the time recorded in Bizabets’ transaction log in respect of that bet will be binding and Bizabets’ determination thereof will be final and binding on you.

  • Methods of Placing a Bet

A bet may only be placed with Bizabets using any one of the following methods:

  • Any mobile phone application (‘Mobile’) offered by Bizabets from time to time for the placing of bets but excluding by SMS or text message to any Bizabets employee or agent;
  • At a betting counter at any Bizabets outlet;
  • A bet placed with Bizabets on its website. A bet placed with Bizabets by SMS, fax or any other medium not prescribed and identified within these terms and conditions will not be accepted by Bizabets and will be void ab initio.

2.5 Taxation

2.6.1 Bizabets will return all stakes on void bets placed.

2.6.2 All winnings paid under a void bet will be forfeited and refundable to Bizabets on demand by Bizabets.

2.7 In-Running Betting

“Betting In-Running” or “Live In-Running betting” refers to all bets that take place while an event is in progress, i.e. betting that occurs after the official start but before the official end of the event. The odds in respect thereof shall be continuously updated during the event to reflect the current status of the game. In-running betting is only available on certain sports.

For all bets placed in-running, the rules before the start will apply except where otherwise offered by a difference in selections, prices or markets offered.

Bizabets reserves the right to suspend (and re-open) in-running betting during the event concerned. No bets will be accepted when the betting is suspended.

Internet and Mobile - In-running betting odds may be subject to a time delay (which may appear as a browser delay) prior to acceptance. If a price of a bet changes after it is requested but before the bet is accepted, the bet will be re-offered at the new price. A further time delay will apply if a new price is subsequently requested. If the bet is suspended after the price is requested, but prior to acceptance of the bet, the transaction will be declined if you attempt to accept the bet.

Where a blatant or palpable error is made in transmission on any event on which there is live betting, bets will be settled at the correct price at the time at which the bets was placed.

Where we have reason to believe that a bet was placed after the outcome of an event is known, we reserve the right to void the bet. Where any in-running event has not completed all bets on that event shall be void except bets where the contingency has already been determined.

Bizabets reserves the right to amend the odds on any bet if that bet was placed during the period when betting should have been suspended for any reason.

The terms and conditions and specific rules for various sports covered ‘in-running’ are detailed below per section 4

2.8 Dead Heat

In the event of a dead heater a tie, where odds were not offered by Bizabets on such an outcome and the event was not a “draw no bet” event, bets will be paid at the face value of the ticket divided by the number of competitors dead-heating or tying for that placing. Place ties will only be paid on an event for which place betting was available and the winnings thereon will be calculated by multiplying the face value of the ticket by the remaining number of places available and divided by the number of competitors tying for those available number of placings.

In the event of a dead heat where odds were offered by Bizabets on such an outcome, then all win or place bets will be losers and the draw option will be paid on the winner.

Save in respect of a foregoing the dead heat rule in 3 below shall mutatis mutandis apply in respect of all sports / events and bets thereon.

2.9 Suspension of Markets

Bizabets reserves the right to suspend a market at any time. When a market is suspended any bets placed during that suspension will be rejected and any bet accepted will be void.

2.12 Special events

All special events on which bets are offered by Bizabets shall be deemed to be sporting events even if they fall outside the scope of sport. All the Terms and Conditions relating to sport as well as the specific discipline rules in respect thereof shall apply to special event bets.

2.13 Sports Betting

In all betting relating to sports other than horse racing, the terms and conditions relating to betting on horses shall mutatis mutandis apply to all circumstances not covered by the specific sports discipline rules.

Maximum Winning

The maximum amount that any single customer may win from any bet or bets placed with Bizabets on any one day, irrespective of the stakes in respect thereof or the terms of that bet, is set out in the table 2.14.5 below but subject otherwise to a maximum of R500 000.00 (five hundred thousand) per customer per day save in respect of exceptions being.

Bizabets, in its sole discretion, shall determine if a bet has been placed by a nominee or on behalf of a single customer and Bizabets’ decision in that regard shall be final and binding.

Where bets have been placed on different days in respect of an event or events held on the same day, the maximum amount that one customer may win on one day’s trading is determined by the day that the final event/market is resolved, and not on the individual day on which each bet was placed and accordingly limited to the lesser of the maximum amount displayed in the table 2.14.3 below or R500 000.00 per customer per day per event.

Should there be no winning tickets on any pool on the Saftote Totalisator (i.e. a full carryover) but winning tickets at Bizabets, Bizabets will pay a dividend determined by dividing the Totalisator pool by the number of Bizabets winners. Bizabets’ maximum liability, in totality, to customers shall be limited to the pool. These dividends and payouts will be subject to the R 150 000,00 tote limit.

Where a partial carryover is declared by the Saftote Totalisator on an open bet, on non-commingled pools, Bizabets shall pay its winning customers based on the value of the total pool. Bizabets’ maximum liability shall be limited to R150 000,00.

By way of example, if a Pick 6 pool is R1.5m and only a 10% winner is declared with a dividend of R150 000 and a carryover of R1 350 000 is declared, then Bizabets’ customers’ winning bets shall be based on the pool of R1.5m and the maximum liability in totality to all customers shall be limited to the R 150 000,00.

Where a partial carryover is declared by the Saftote Totalisator on an open bet on commingled pools on international races, Bizabets shall pay the dividend declared. However, the liability shall be limited to the R 150 000,00.

By way of example, if a commingled Trifecta pool is R10 000 on an English event and a dividend of R700 is declared to 6 winners locally (total payout R4200) and a carryover of R5800 is declared, then Bizabets’ maximum liability to any customer shall be limited to the value of the payout being R4200.

2.15 Related Bets

No related bets, (where the outcome of one part of the bet contributes or determines another part of the bet), will be accepted. If a related bet is accepted, the stake of the single bet will be divided and applied and paid equally over the respective events in the bet. Bizabets, in its sole discretion, shall determine if a bet is a related bet, and Bizabets’ decision in that regard shall be final and binding.

Example: Manchester United to win in 90 minutes (price even money 1/1) AND Manchester United to win with exact score of 2-0 (price 7/1) will erroneously return a multiple price of 15/1. A bet of 1500/100 will be corrected to two bets, namely R50 on Manchester United to win in 90 minutes (price 1/1 bet would be 50/50) and a bet of R50 for Manchester United to win with exact score 2-0 (350/50).

2.16 Multiple Bets

Multiple bets will be subject to the win limit as per the maximum winnings table above, per customer. If any multiple bets are accepted by Bizabets over this limit, the said bets will be adjusted to the prescribed limit at the same odds, whether they are winning bets or losing bets and winnings reduced and paid out accordingly.

If y selection in a multiple bet becomes or is deemed void, the money staked on that part of the bet which is void shall be placed on the remaining selections which comprise the multiple bet and the remaining selections of the bet shall stand. For example, if one match in a quadruple bet becomes void, the bet becomes a treble. If one leg of a multiple bet remains, that bet will stand as a single bet.

No multiple bet will be accepted where two legs of the multiple bet can be placed on and relate to the same individual event. For example, where one leg of a double is for Montoya to qualify in pole position for the Monaco Grand Prix and the second leg is for him to win the Monaco Grand Prix. The two bets are connected in that they relate to the same race. Should any bets be erroneously accepted by Bizabets, the stakes will be equally divided between the selections which are connected.

Similarly, two legs of a multiple bet cannot be placed from the same individual event. For example, Manchester United is playing Liverpool and you select Liverpool to win as your first leg, you cannot now add an additional selection from within the same game to form another leg of your multiple bet.

2.17 Deposits

Deposits from account holders can only be made into the bank accounts listed below and will be held by Octoberwindtrading82(Pty) Ltd T/a Bizabets and credited to the customer’s online or mobile betting account once the amount has been cleared by Octoberwindtrading82(Pty) Ltd T/a Bizabets, bankers and the amount in question is reflecting/visible on the company’s bank statement.

  1. Horse Racing Terms and Conditions

3.1 Ante-Post Betting

An ante-post bet is a bet on a medium to long term feature race or event.

In the case of weather or outside influences that cause an event to be postponed or rescheduled to another day, then all ante-post bets shall stand. Ante-post bets may include runners that do not ultimately participate in the race or event and bets wagered on such will be considered losers. These races/events may be referred to as “all-in” events. No deduction shall be taken on scratching from ante-post all-in races or events.

An ante-post bet will be void where the race on which the ante-post bet has been placed is officially abandoned, the conditions of the race altered or if the venue of the race has been changed. In these circumstances any multiple bet, which includes this selection, will be paid out on the remaining selections.

3.2 Feature Race Multiples

The horse racing year provides occasions where the same selection can be backed to win in two different events. In these events the multiple bet will be reduced by one-third of the full accumulated odds.

Example:

Pocket Power to win the Queen’s Plate – 1/1

Pocket Power to win the J&B Met – 15/10

Ante-post Double price – 4/1 x 66% = 27/10

3.3 Withdrawals/Scratchings

In all horse races, except horse races on which ante-post bets have been placed, if a horse is withdrawn without coming under starters orders, the horse will be treated as a non-runner. In which event, a deduction may be made, at the time Bizabets processes the scratching, from the winnings of bets struck at a fixed price prior to the scratching and, if there is insufficient time to form a new market/starting price, the starting price will be subject to the same deduction. Each deduction will be determined in accordance with the following deduction table.

Deduction Table
Odds of WithdrawnHorse/Participant Deduction
17.0 and over 0%
13.0 16.99 5%
8.0 12.99 10%

3.5 5.49 20%
2.5 3.49 25%
2.0 2.49 30%
1.5 1.99 35%
1.2 1.49 40%
1.0 1.19 45%
0.8 0.99 50%

0.4 0.49 65%
Shorter 0.39 70%

3.4 Betting with a Run (any bet other than an ante-post bet)

Where a single bet is made “with a run” and the selected horse is scratched, the bet shall be void.

All bets struck “with a run” on the remaining horses in a race where one or more horses have been scratched shall be subject to the deductions detailed in the table above.

Where a deduction applies to remaining runners in the event of a multiple event bet “with a run”, the relevant deduction in the table above shall be applied to the runner of the event where the scratching occurred, and the entire bet recalculated in respect of the event from which the horse was scratched.

Any bets “with a run” struck after the official announcement of the withdrawal of one or more horses shall not be subject to any deduction, unless there is a further withdrawal or withdrawals.

Where a race is abandoned, all bets “with a run” on the race concerned shall be void.

In starting price multiple bets “with a run”, winnings on winning bets shall be calculated and paid at the Bizabets starting price.

3.5 Bizabets Starting Price

The starting price of a horse shall be the last fixed odds laid or displayed by Bizabets on that horse, prior to the start of the race. In the event of a late withdrawal, where no new betting is displayed before the start of the race, then the starting price shall be the last price displayed, subject to a deduction.

3.6 Jockey Championship

The winner is the jockey or jockeys who have ridden the most winners, numerically, in a championship period.

The winner of the British Flat Jockeys Championship is the jockey who rides the most winners on the flat and all-weather tracks during the championship period. Dead-heat rules apply.

3.7 Betting for Absolute Second

In certain instances, betting may be offered, on the field, to run second. Fixed odds to run absolute second will be displayed against all participants in the event. A pay-out will be made on all bets struck on the horse that finished in second place. Dead-heat rules will apply.

3.8 Match Races

The horse (or jockey) that attains the highest finishing position in the official result will be the winner of the match race. Both horses must come under starter’s orders or bets will be void. Bizabets reserves the right to change the horse in a match race without notice and reserves the right to suspend betting at any time.

In hurdle/jump races, all runners that come under starter’s orders will be declared as runners in the Match Bet market. Should only one runner finish the race, this runner shall be declared the winner. In the event that both horses do not complete the race, the bet will be void.

3.9 Triple Headers

The horse that attains the highest finishing position in the official result will be the winner of the triple header race. All horses must come under starter’s orders, failing which should two horses be scratched then all bets will be void. Should one horse be withdrawn without coming under starter’s orders, the horse will be treated as a non-runner in which event a deduction may be made from the winnings of bets struck at a fixed price and, if there is insufficient time to form a new market/starting price, the starting price will be subject to the same deduction.

In hurdle/jump races, all runners that come under starter’s orders will be declared as runners in the triple header race. Should only one runner finish the race, this runner shall be declared the winner. In the event that all three horses do not complete the race, the bet will be void.

In winning multiple event bets where two races result in dead heats, the customer shall win the odds to one-quarter of the stake and lose the other three quarters, and so on, for further dead heats. The remaining portion of the stake shall be applied at the original odds as a winner.

Notwithstanding the provisions above, in the case of a three-horse dead heat in multiple event bets, where one race results in a triple dead heat, the customer shall lose two thirds of the stake and the entire bet is recalculated as a result of the event where the dead heat occurred.

The dead heat rule may apply in other sporting codes such as, but not restricted to, darts, golf, athletics and soccer, and will be applied as above.

  1. Soccer Terms and Conditions/Rules

4.1 Duration of Match

All soccer bets will be settled on the score at full-time (90 minutes and stoppage time added by the referee, if any) unless otherwise indicated. Extra time, golden goal and penalty shootouts will be excluded. Where a bet is struck to “lift the cup” or “to progress” there shall be no betting on a draw as extra time or penalties may be required to decide the outcome.

The exception to this rule is in relation to friendly matches (which may be scheduled for less than 90 minutes), where all match markets will be settled based on the actual result when the game finishes (excluding any extra-time), irrespective of whether 90 minutes is played.

The Overtime market is to predict, yes or no, if the game will extend into extra time.

The Penalty Shootout is to predict, yes or no, if the game will extend to a penalty shootout.

4.2 Kick Off

All bets will be accepted until kick off time. Any bet, other than an in-play or in-running bets, placed after kick off time shall be void. That part of a multiple bet on a soccer event placed after kick off time shall be void but all remaining selections which do not include the match in that multiple bet will stand.

Should a match start and be abandoned prior to the completion of full-time and an official result is declared by the governing association of the match or event within 24 hours of abandonment thereof, all relevant bets will be determined on that result notwithstanding any later changes to the result for any reason or any error in the results save that all bets which are dependent on number of goals scored shall be void.

If a soccer match is officially called off prior to its scheduled completion and an official match result is not declared by the relevant controlling authority within 24 hours of abandonment, bets not determined at the time the match is called off shall be void. This exclusion does not apply to bets already determined.

Bets placed on postponed matches will stand provided the match is played within 36 hours of the original scheduled kick off time and the venue remain the same, failing which those bets shall be void.

In the event that a result of a match is not made available on the internet or other reliable source within 48 hours of the scheduled kick-off, such match shall be made void, provided that an alternate kick-off has not been scheduled within that same 48 hour period. Should a result subsequently be forthcoming it shall be ignored for the purposes of settling bets.

If a scheduled match does not kick-off and a team is declared a winner by a walkover, by the governing association, then such decision shall not be considered a result for betting purposes and all bets on the match shall be void.

4.3 Early Betting

Where Bizabets provides betting on individual matches well in advance of the proposed date and bets are taken on those matches, then changes to the proposed date, whether brought forward or delayed, shall be binding on the outcome of the bet. E.g. Premier League fixtures are available 3-weeks in advance and a selection of Chelsea is made for that round but Chelsea’s proposed weekend game is brought forward to the midweek as a result of Cup commitments (or any other reason), then the result of the midweek Chelsea match shall be valid for the settlement of the bets. Similarly, if the match is postponed for a period of less than one week, all bets shall be valid.

4.4 Home and Away

Bizabets shall display prices on both teams as well as the draw. The price of the home team will be displayed first followed by the price on the away team, unless the home team is otherwise clearly indicated.

If a team plays a different opponent to that which is advertised, or if the venue of a match is changed to a different venue, all bets on that match shall be void save that multiple bets which include that match shall stand whilst all other bets on that match shall be void.

Where games are played on a neutral ground home and away teams may differ amongst reporting websites but regardless, all bets shall stand.

4.5 Soccer Bet Types

4.5.1 Match Bet Types

The Full-Time market shall be settled on the result at the time the referee blows the final whistle at the end of regulation time.

The Handicap betting markets will be resulted on the actual 90-minute result taking into consideration the handicap (plus or minus) as displayed.

4.5.2 Combination Bet Types

Half-time-Full-time double result – bets are offered on the double result of the half-time result and the full-time result. For example, a selection by the customer showing Arsenal-Arsenal will require Arsenal to be winning at half-time and Arsenal to be winning at full-time.

The Match Flow market will be resulted as one of the seven options applicable at the end of the 90-minute period. This market couples the first team to score (home or away) with the final result, remembering too, that a No Goal option is valid.

The combined Matchbet & Both Teams to Score market will be resulted to the correct one of the six options available.

The combined Matchbet + Totals market will be resulted based on the component parts of the bet type.

4.5.3 Goals and Score Bet types

The Correct Score market will be paid on the final result after the full 90 minutes of play.

  • comes on after the first goal has been scored; or
  • does not take part at all;

the bet shall be void.

In the Anytime Goal Scorer market, all players who take part in a match (players and substitutes regardless of how long they play) will be considered ‘runners’. If the customer’s selected player does not take part at all, the bet will be void.

In First Goal selections, “Any Other Goal Scorer” means any player besides those quoted in the event. Only players NOT quoted in this event will be taken into account for the “Any Other Player” bets.

If a game has no goals scored, the first goal bets will be settled at 90 minutes.

Own goals will not count in First/Last/Anytime goal scorer markets.

In the event of a dispute over the award of a goal for First/Last/Anytime Goal Scorer, for betting purposes the bet will be determined on the scorer as reported by the controlling authority in respect of the game.

The Correct Score – First Half will be paid on the result after the first 45 minutes of play plus injury time

The Any Other Score option will be resulted as the winner if the correct score is different to the options offered.

The First /Last Team to Score will be resulted in the team which is awarded the first/last goal on the scoreboard (90 minute market). Own goals count to the team credited with the goal. If an event is abandoned after a goal is scored, then all bets on First Goal (and No Goal) will stand while bets on Last Goal will be void. If an event is abandoned without any goal being scored, then all bets will be void.

The Which Team to Score market has four options of either team to be the only scorers, no score or both teams to score (90 minute market). Own goals count to the team credited with the goal. If an event is abandoned after both teams have scored, that result will stand, alternatively all bets will be void.

The Odd/Even Goals will be resulted on the total number of goals scored, in 90 minutes, by both sides. Zero goals will be resulted as an Even Number Total Goals.

The Both Teams to Score will be resulted on the goals awarded to each team in 90 minutes. In the event of a match being abandoned after both teams have scored then ‘Yes’ bets will be settled as winners and ‘No’ bets as a loser. Otherwise, if the match is postponed or abandoned without both teams scoring, all bets will be void.

The Highest Scoring Half (3-way market) is determined by the numbers of goals scored in period of play.

The Clean Sheet market is to predict if a team did not allow the opposition to gain a goal in a 90minute match. Clean Sheet Home Team – Yes, means the home team did not allow the away team to gain a goal. Clean Sheet Home Team – No, means the home team did allow the away team to gain a goal. Clean Sheet Away Team – Yes, means the away team did not allow the home team to gain a goal. Clean Sheet Away Team – No, means the away team did allow the home team to gain a goal.

If a match is abandoned, then all bets are void.
