Account Types

Credit

To open a credit account please contact us and we will deal with your request.

Trade

To open a trade account please contact us and we will deal with your request.

You can request to withdraw some or all of your balance at any time by contacting one of our traders.

Deposit Limits

Deposit limits are a safe way to protect players. We have deposit limits for days, weeks or months depending on what suits the client. All deposit limits are done on a NET basis.

Bank Authorisation

Occasionally there is a delay in the banks authorisation and a decision will be made by us to either accept or decline the bet.
If we tell you that ‘your bet is on’ then the bet will stand regardless of whether the funds are authorised later or not.
We reserve the right to make further attempts to transact the stake if the bet is a loser or to withhold winnings until the stake is transacted if it is a winning bet.

Occasionally, you may be told that your bet is on ‘subject to authorisation’. In this case your bet will stand as long as we are able to transact the funds at the earliest opportunity after the bet was placed.

If we are unable to acquire authorisation due to a declined bank referral, we can supply you with our time stamped voiding of your bet.

Conditions of Acceptance

Once accepted, a bet can only be cancelled by mutual consent unless a pricing error has occurred. We endeavour to always ensure complete accuracy as regards announcing, publishing and issuing of prices, however should an obvious error occur, we cannot accept responsibility and reserve the right to correct obvious errors or cancel the bet if it is deemed necessary.

Special bets are settled in accordance with the special rules issued for such bets.

Any bet not substantiated by our Recording equipment, or not written to our database, will not be recognised by us.

We cannot guarantee to pay or correct errors if they are brought to our attention more than 90 Days after the official result of the last selection to run on the bet.

Where there is evidence of price or match rigging, we reserve the right to make bets void or withhold payment pending the outcome of any investigation.

For all Telephone bets, the time at which the bet was recorded on our Recording equipment will govern settlement.

All prices are subject to fluctuation and are available up to the official off time of the event concerned. Where the official ‘off’ is not announced, bets are accepted up to the advertised start time. Any bet that is accepted after the advertised or official start time – other than bets on In- Running markets – will be void.

Except where advertised, multiple bets are not accepted where the outcome of one part of the bet contributes to the outcome of the other. This is known as a Related Contingency, and if taken in error the stakes will be equally divided where the related contingencies clash. Multiple bets that contain the same selection in different events are also not accepted where the outcome of one affects or is affected by the other. In the case of a multiple including selections with related outcomes we reserve the right to Void part of or the whole of the bet.

In the event of a dead heat for first place the stake money on a winning selection is divided by the number of winners in the dead heat and the full odds paid to the reduced stake with the remainder of the stake money being lost. A similar rule applies to place betting where, as the result of a dead heat, more than the required number of selections is placed.

Time of Acceptance

1. In the event of there being a dispute over the time a wager was placed, then the time at which it was recorded on our computerised recording system will govern settlement.

2. Where the official "Off" of race is not announced, bets are accepted up to the advertised time of the race. Any bet accepted later than the advertised time will be void unless we are satisfied that the bet was placed before the actual "off".

cravensports.bet Betting Rules (the “Rules”) are effective from 01/10/2021. All previous Rules are cancelled as of that date.

Whilst they cover the vast majority of transactions there may be occasions when an occurrence is not covered by our rules. In these rare instances we will seek to settle in an equitable and fair manner.

Bets are accepted at 'show prices', as transmitted by the official information service to our office, e.g. SIS. Where a show price is requested, it will apply to that selection unless it is clearly indicated otherwise.

The time prior to which bets may be placed on any particular event is normally the official start time. In some instances, such as early prices on horse racing, bets may be placed up to a time prior to the official start time which is at our discretion.

If, for any reason, a bet is inadvertently accepted after the event or match has started and the event in question is not covered by our In Play service, the selection(s) affected will be made void if, at any time the bet was placed, the race or event was resolved or at a stage where you could have had any indication of the outcome.

Any bet inadvertently accepted where the outcome of an event (or market) has already been determined, including Live Betting, shall be made void, win or lose.

We reserve the right to void a bet if the outcome to which the bet relates becomes public knowledge before the closing time for bets placed in the event.

Where the official start of an event is not announced, bets are accepted up to the advertised time of the event. Any bet that is accepted later than the advertised time of the event will be void, unless we are satisfied that the bet was accepted before the event commenced.
In the event of there being a dispute over the time at which a bet was placed, then the time at which it was confirmed on our system will govern the settlement.

You should be aware that transmissions by some broadcasters, be they on TV, radio or live streaming via the internet, are subject to delays. The extent of any delay experienced may vary depending on the system used to receive pictures or data.

Any bet accepted in error for an event that has already taken place, or where betting has been suspended, will be void win or lose.

Results and Bet Settlements

Bets are settled on the official result published by the official governing body immediately after the match/event is finished.

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

Where bets or parts of bets are made void, stakes on singles will be refunded, but on multiple bets, the void selection will be treated as a non-runner.

For the purpose of settling each way doubles, trebles etc. they are calculated as 2 distinct bets, i.e. win-to-win and place-to-place.

If two selections are engaged with the same name and both selections are still to run at the time of acceptance, provided that no time has been given, the bets will be settled on the runner without a suffix for the country of origin e.g. USA, IRE.

In all cases of incorrect or incomplete instructions, the bet will be taken as win, unless each way is stated.

For Horse and Greyhound racing, where two selections are nominated in the same market and no instructions given, then the bet will be settled as a straight forecast, or a combination forecast where three or more selections are nominated.

Where a win or each way bet is requested with nominated selections in the same market, the bet will be settled as singles with the stake divided equally.

In multiple bets, where two or more selections are in the same market, the stakes will be divided equally where the selections meet in the bet i.e. 2 selections in doubles and upwards, in the same race will be settled as follows- stake single on each selection where they meet in doubles; winnings follow through to trebles and onwards and settled on the remaining selections as standard.

cravensports.bet reserves the right to apply a dead heat (see Clause 1.4) reduction on any event where more winners are declared than were originally specified.

All bets are settled strictly on their merits and no plea of precedence will be accepted.

Late Bets

Bets are accepted up to the off-time of the event or a pre-determined time whichever the earlier.

Any bet inadvertently accepted after the betting has closed or where the event was resolved or at a stage where the customer could have any indication of the outcome will be voided.
Bets placed after the final event result is known will be voided.
Should there be a dispute over the off-time of an event/market where an official starting time is not given by that sports governing body, then the time that cravensports.bet determines the event to have started will govern settlement of all bets.

Dead Heat

When a dead heat occurs for first place, the stake money on the winning selection will be divided by the number of winners and full odds paid on the reduced stake. The remainder of the stake is lost.

Where an each way bet involves a dead heat winner, the win part of the bet will be settled as above and the place part will be settled in full, in accordance with the relevant place terms. Should the dead heat involve placed selections and results in more than the allocated number of places, then the stakes will be divided, as before and settled to the full place terms.

Related Contingencies

Except where advertised, multiple bets are not accepted where the outcome of one part of the bet contributes to the outcome of the other. If taken in error, the stakes will be equally divided where

they clash e.g. £20 double on NEWCASTLE to win the match and NEWCASTLE to win at half time and full time, would be settled as 2 x £10 singles.

However, where the related parts of the bet are resolved at different times, the bet will be settled as instructed, with the price for the subsequent legs being determined at each individual stage. E.g. HENMAN to win his semi-final at 10/11 and HENMAN to win the tournament outright at 5/2 would be settled as HENMAN for the semi-final at 10/11 and the price for HENMAN to win the final at the odds after the completion of the semi-final.

If when placing a multiple bet online, your bet slip contains some related selections or markets, then only the unrelated multiples will be placed - this will be reflected in your stake. Returns may only be claimed on valid unrelated bets. If you are in doubt as to which of your selections are related, please contact our Customer Service team for a full explanation. Stakes cannot be refunded on bets placed in error.

Special related prices may be available on some events. These will be displayed on our website.

Ante-Post prices are those offered on (unless special conditions are advertised):
A horse race prior to the final declaration stage;
A greyhound race prior to the day of the race.
Sporting events as advertised 4 or more days before the scheduled start of the match or competition.
Ante-post bets are accepted on the basis of "all in run or not", i.e./ stakes are lost if the selection does not take part, if there was a possibility of it winning at the time the bet was laid.
For Win and place multiple accumulator bets the place part of an each way bet, the fraction odds and number of places relating to each event, are those pertaining on the date of acceptance.
Place only bets and forecast bets are not accepted Ante-post, unless advertised otherwise.
Bets are executed at the price ruling at the time of acceptance. We reserve the right to correct any obvious errors.

All Ante-post selections will be made void if:
The race or event is abandoned;
The race or event is officially declared void;
The conditions or venue of the race or event are altered, after the bet is struck;
The race is reopened or additional runners (other than known reserves) are added;
A horse is balloted out. In this instance, the liabilities against the horses remaining are reduced at the rate in accordance with Tattersalls Rule 4 depending on the odds currently available on the balloted out selection(s).

Where the same selection is backed to win two or more events in an Ante-post accumulator bet, a special price will apply, irrespective of the individual odds quoted. See Rule 10, Related Contingencies.

Ante-post betting ceases at the final declaration stage and all bets placed after the final declaration stage will be non-runner no bet. Tattersalls Rule 4 may apply.

Horse Racing

Each Way betting at Starting Prices and Board Prices will be calculated as follows: –

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 all races the number of runners shall be the number of runners coming under Starters Orders.

Place only bets are not accepted. The only exception to this will be if “Special Place Only Betting “ is offered on certain events.

Bets will not be accepted where the Place Stake exceeds the Win Stake.

Each Way Doubles, Trebles and Accumulators will be settled “Win to Win” and “Place to Place” in accordance with the place terms above.

Each Way Single Stakes About bets, the Win part will be settled in its entirety before the Place part is considered.

Each Way All Each Way or Equally Divided bets are accepted but the instruction must be clearly indicated. Settlement will be carried out in time order.

Restarted Races – In the event of a restarted race, the original betting market prior to the false start will govern the settling, unless a new market is formed. Any horses disqualified from restarting will be deemed losers. In the event of any horse or horses being withdrawn before the restart of the race, Tattersall’s Rule 4 (c) will apply to the original betting market. The number of runners taking part in the re-run will determine place terms.

Postponed Races – If a race is postponed to another day, with the exception of Ante Post bets, all selections will be made Void. If races are set back in time because of weather conditions or outside events the settling of bets will be governed by the original advertised times.

Walkovers and Void Horse Races – Walkovers and Void Races count as races but any horse so involved will be treated as a Non-Runner for settling purposes.

Objections and Disqualifications – Objections, disqualifications and amended results subsequent to the “Weighed In” announcement will be disregarded.

Withdrawals other than Ante-Post – Where a horse or horses are withdrawn before coming under Starters Orders, or is officially deemed by the Starter to have taken no part in the race, Stakes will be returned on the withdrawn horse, or horses, and winning bets will be subject to deductions in accordance with Tattersall’s Rule4(c), last revised in January 2011.

The rate of deduction will be based on the following scale. 1/9 or shorter 90p

2/11
1/4
3/10
2/5
8/15
8/13
4/5
20/21 to 5/6 50p
to 2/17 85p to 1/5 80p
to 2/7 75p to 1/3 70p
to 4/9 65p
to 4/7 60p to 4/6 55p
Evens
5/4
8/5
9/5
12/5
16/5
9/2
6/1
10/1

If over 14/1 No Deduction is made.
to 6/5 45p to 6/4 40p to 7/4 35p to 9/4 30p
to 3/1 25p
to 4/1 20p to 11/2 15p to 9/1 10p
to 14/1 05p (1st 5p Waived)

In the case of two or more horses being withdrawn before coming under starters orders, the total deduction will not exceed 90p in the £.

Should a horse be withdrawn and a new market formed, then any bets laid at “Show” prices prior to the new show will be subject to the above deductions. In the event of a further withdrawal after the market has been re-formed, bets placed at “Show” prices in the original market will be subject to a further deduction based on the price of the withdrawn horse in the original market. Bets placed in the new market will be subject to a deduction based on the current price of the withdrawn horse.

The above scale will also apply in the case of Non-Runners in Early Price Races and will be used for other events where we specifically advertise that deductions in line with Tattersall’s Rule 4(c) will apply.

Enhanced Betting – When a NR (subject to R4) is involved in an enhanced offer bets will revert to SP.

Double Engagements – Where a selection is doubly engaged and the client requests a specific race time, it will be considered a bet for that race only. If the selection runs in the other race it will be deemed a Non-Runner.

Forecasts – Forecasts are available in races of three or more runners, any inadvertently accepted in races with only two runners will be settled as a Win single on the selection nominated to finish first. Forecasts, forecast doubles and forecast trebles will be settled according to the Computer Straight Forecast and by reference to the NSL Straight Forecast Chart should no CSF be declared.

A forecast that includes a non-runner will become a Win Single on the remaining selection. Should there be no official SP returns for a race all Forecasts on that event will be Void.

In the event of two or more horses Dead-Heating for first or second place, separate dividends will be declared and paid for each of the qualifying forecasts.

Tricasts – Tricasts, selecting the 1st, 2nd and 3rd in correct order are offered on Handicaps of eight or more declared runners (and occasionally other races as advertised) on the proviso that at least 6 run.

A Tricast containing a non-runner will be settled as a Straight Forecast on the remaining selections in the order written and in the case of two non-runners, will be settled as a win single on the remaining selection.

In the event of no Tricast being declared selections for 1st and 2nd place will be settled as Computer Straight Forecasts in the order written with the third selection disregarded. Tricasts are accepted for singles only. In the event of two or more horses Dead Heating for 1st, 2nd or 3rd place, separate dividends will be declared and paid to each qualifying Tricast.

Favourites – Wagers will be accepted Win only at Starting Price for 1st and 2nd Favourites. In the event of two selections starting Joint Favourites, they are taken as Joint 1st and 2nd Favourites and stakes for either 1st or 2nd Favourite are divided equally. Where three or more selections start Co-Favourites stakes will be divided proportionally.

Should the Favourite or Second Favourite be withdrawn before coming under Starters Orders but too late to form a new market, bets on the Favourite or 2nd Favourite in that particular race are Void. The only exception to this will be as regards Placepots (Please see Tote Section)

Non-UK and Irish Racing

Bets are accepted for races abroad so long as they are Televised Live or the racecard is published in the Racing Post. In races where an Industry SP is available, all bets will be settled at these prices unless an Early Price or Pari-Mutuel (Tote) is requested. The Industry SP is returned by an Independent SP reporter from odds supplied to SIS by the major bookmakers. Industry SP’s are not subject to any coupling. In the instances where no Industry SP is made available, bets will be settled at Pari-Mutuel (Tote) returns. In Pari-Mutuel (Tote) pools from abroad horses can be coupled, usually when they have the same owner. Generally they are coupled in Win pools only but in some countries they can be coupled in all pools. The place part of each way bets will be settled in accordance to the returned place dividends.

Bets may also be accepted at Show Prices when SIS provides a betting guide. Where horses are coupled the Show Price will cover all the coupled horses.

In the case of US racing, the place part of Each Way bets at Pari-Mutuel (Tote) will be settled by reference to the “Show” Dividend. In races with only Win and Place pools in operation the Place dividend applies for Each Way bets.
Place Only bets are not accepted.

Unnamed Favourites are not accepted in races abroad, unless an official SP is returned.

Forecasts are accepted, settlement being dependent on the type of forecast in operation. Bets are accepted abroad in accordance with our General Rules and any additional rules applicable to the Country concerned.

Day of Race/Early Prices

Prices are on offer daily, subject to fluctuation, up to Thirty Minutes before the first show of course betting broadcast by S.I.S/TRP Bets on Horse Racing laid at prices following the Overnight Declaration stage, or on the day of the race, are subject to Starting Price Rules with the additional stipulation that in the event of a withdrawal, a deduction in line with Tattersall’s Rule 4 (c) based on the current price of the withdrawn horse(s) will apply. Withdrawn horses count as normal Non- Runners. For place purposes, the number of placed runners, as determined by our place betting rules, will be governed by the number of runners coming under starter’s orders and not by the number of runners, when the price was laid.

Board Prices

Board Prices are laid in any race with three or more runners. Should a horse or greyhound be withdrawn no Board Prices will be laid after the time of withdrawal unless the “market” is reformed. Should there be an error subsequently corrected by S.I.S. the bet will stand at the corrected price or S.P, whichever the greater. For place purposes, the number of placed runners, as determined by our place betting rules, will be governed by the number of runners coming under starter’s orders and not by the number of runners, when the price was laid.

Ante-Post

Ante-Post prices are those offered on:

A Horserace prior to 10:30a.m. on the day of the Overnight Declaration Stage.
Bets placed at all other times are settled in accordance with Our Day of Race Rules.
A Greyhound Race prior to the completion of the Semi-Finals of a Competition.
Sporting Events as advertised.
Ante Post bets are accepted on the basis of all in enter or not, run or not i.e. stakes are lost if the selection does not take part, if there was a possibility of it winning at the time the bet was laid.

If a race is postponed to another day and overnight declarations stand, then Ante Post bets stand. However, Single Ante Post bets on horse racing will be made void and any selection involved in accumulative bets will be treated as a non-runner if:

The race is abandoned.
The race is officially declared void.
The conditions of the race are altered after bets are made (as defined under Tattersall’s Rules). A horse is balloted out under Jockey Club Rules of Racing.
The venue is altered.
The running surface is altered (e.g. Turf to Dirt / All Weather or vice versa).
Where we offered specific place terms such as “with a run” at the time a wager was placed and the Horse or Greyhound is subsequently withdrawn

Ante-post bets are settled at the Price and Place terms applicable at the time of acceptance. Reduced odds may apply in accumulative bets if the same selection is taken to win more than one event. Place only bets, conditional bets and forecast betting are not accepted at Ante-Post odds.

Fixed Odds Distance Betting

A Fixed Odds bet is available on selected Horse Racing meetings based on predicting the correct total of the Winning Distances for all the races at that meeting, unless stated differently i.e. excluding a Charity or Arab Race.

The following list represents the numeric unit that is used in the calculation for distances: Nose = 0.05 Length

Short Head = 0.1 Length
Head = 0.2 Length
Neck = 0.3 Length
Half Length = 0.5 Length One Length = 1.0 Length etc

The Maximum distance for a single race is 12 Lengths for Flat Racing and 30 Lengths for National Hunt. In the event of a Walkover, 2 Lengths will be awarded for a Flat Race and 6 Lengths will be awarded for a National Hunt. If any races are abandoned then all bets will be Void unless further races could not affect the result. Calculations are based on the Official Distance as given by the Racecourse Judge.

Fixed Odds Favourites Betting

A Fixed Odds bet is available on selected Horse Racing meetings based on a points system for the Finishing Positions of the Favourites for all the races at that meeting, unless stated differently i.e. excluding a Charity or Arab Race, totalled together.

The following is a list of the Number of Points awarded for the relevant placing of Favourites, regardless of the number of runners.

First Place = 25 points
Second Place = 10 points
Third Place = 5 points

If there are Joint or Co-Favourites then the selection will be the one with the lowest race card number. If the Outright Favourite is withdrawn then 10 Points will be awarded for that race. In the event of a Walkover 10 Points will be awarded for that race. If any races are abandoned then all bets will be Void unless further races could not affect the result.

Meeting Challenge

A winning joint or co-favourite counts as a winning favourite.
A withdrawn favourite counts as a losing favourite where no new market is formed.
If fewer than 3 races are completed at either meeting, all bets will be void.
Void races do not affect the result of a meeting challenge, unless Rule 3 applies.
A favourite which dead heats for first place counts as a winning favourite.
In the event of no starting price being returned the horse/greyhound with the lowest price in the Racing Post betting forecast will count as favourite, in conjunction with Rule 1.
Walkovers will be ignored for challenge purposes.

For greyhounds, where a BAGS/BEGS is offered it will be the results from this coverage only that will count for settlement purposes.

Jockey Challenge

When we offer the opportunity to bet on which jockey will ride the most winners at a meeting, the following rules will apply: –

The result of a jockey challenge is determined by a jockey’s actual taken rides.
If either jockey in a jockey challenge does not ride in at least 1 race, all bets will be void.
Void or abandoned races do not alter the result of a jockey challenge, unless Rule 2 applies.
A jockey’s mount which dead heats for 1st place counts as a complete winner for challenge purposes.
A jockey’s mount that walks over counts as a winning ride.
Singles only.

Greyhounds

All our general rules apply to both Horse and Greyhound racing equally, except where they are superseded by the following rules, which are especially applicable to Greyhound racing.

Bets are accepted for all meetings taking place at GBGB tracks, provided that the programme and results are published in the Racing Post.

Early Prices are offered on Finals of competitions, after the completion of the Semi-final stage, and other featured events. Bets placed prior to the completion of the Semi-finals of a competition are covered by the Ante-post Rules. All Early Prices offered on Greyhound Racing are Non Runner-No Bet and in the event of any Non Runners all bets placed at Early Prices will revert to Starting Price.

Bets are accepted as win or each way for named selections or trap numbers at Starting Price, Early Price or Board Price and on un-named first favourites as win only at Starting Price. In the event of no Starting Price being returned bets will be Void. We reserve the right to declare Void any bets where we consider there to be reasonable suspicion or evidence of unfair price manipulation.

Place Terms for Each Way Betting:

In races of 5-7 runners we pay 1/4 odds 1st and 2nd
In races of 8 runners we pay 1/5 odds 1st 2nd and 3rd
In races with less than 5 runners, place money goes all on to win.

Place only bets are not accepted

We do not accept bets on Greyhound Racing at Tote Odds.

Where a reserve runs in a race, bets accepted for trap numbers will stand unless “reserves not to count” is stipulated.

Where a race is re-run all bets stand, however where a Board Price has been taken, settlement will be at Starting Price. Should a race be declared Void and not re-run, all selections will be treated as non-runners.

Forecasts, forecast doubles and forecast trebles will be settled according to the Computer Straight Forecast at BAGS/BEGS meetings and by reference to the NSL Straight Forecast chart at other meetings. A forecast that includes a non-runner will become a Win Single on the remaining selection.

Tricasts – selecting the 1st, 2nd and 3rd in correct order are offered for all six runner or more races covered by BAGS/BEGS and selected evening meetings where the result and Tricast are declared in the Racing Post. Tote Tricasts are not accepted. A Tricast containing a non- runner will be settled as a Straight Forecast on the remaining selections in the order written and in the case of two non-runners, will be settled as a win single on the remaining selection. In the event of no Tricast being declared selections for 1st and 2nd place will be settled as Computer Straight Forecasts in the order written with the third selection disregarded. Tricasts are accepted for singles only.

Trap Challenge – Which trap will have the most wins? Bets are accepted at selected advertised meetings and at all BAGS/BEGS meetings. To win requires the selection of the trap number to win most races at the nominated meetings. In the event of two or more trap numbers winning the same highest number of races, dead heat rules will apply. In races where the result is a dead heat, each trap number involved will count as a winner. Bets stand irrespective of any non-runners, Void races, or abandoned meetings.

Football

Should a match be brought forward, bets will only stand provided they are placed before the kick off. Selections placed after the kick off will be void unless it is an “In Running Match”

Should a match be re-arranged, bets would only stand if played on the following day, otherwise selections will be void.

If a match is abandoned before 90 minutes playing time has elapsed that match will be void (unless it is restaged the following day when that 90 minute score will govern settlement)

Should a team play a different opposition to that on the coupon, or should a venue be reversed, forecasts for that match will be declared void. Should a match be changed from a home venue to a neutral one forecasts for that match will be declared void, unless the match is a FIFA/UEFA governed event (e.g. International match, UEFA cup, Champions league) when forecasts for that match will stand so long as it is played in the same country of origin.

90 minutes playing time + any injury time that is added at the end of 90 minutes play for stoppages will decide the result of all matches; Extra time does not count unless the market specifically states so.

If an accumulator is placed that includes a void selection the bet will stand on the remaining matches.

Bets are settled at accumulative odds, palpable errors excepted, at the prices advertised at the time the bet is accepted. All Prices are subject to fluctuation.

Bonuses and Consolations are offered on various individual Football Markets as advertised. They do not apply to Ante-Post betting, unless specified as a part of a special promotion.

Correct Scores

Correct scores are accepted in singles, doubles, trebles and accumulators.

Given that the two components of this double are related, the scorecast is offered at specified, discounted odds.

Own goals do not count and in the event of the first/last goal being an own goal then the scorecast will be settled on the correct score coupled with the next goalscorer. If there is only an own goal in the match, then the bet will be settled as a single on the correct score.

Where no teams are stated for correct score bets, then the left hand score will be deemed to be for the home team and the right hand score for the away team. For scorecast bets, this convention will stand even if the first goal scorer is for the away team.

Asian Handicaps

An Asian handicap is a market where a handicap is applied to the match in order to make the prices more equal. The handicap line varies from Scratch, (0, also called Level Ball) up to any number of goals in order to balance the odds and give each of the two team’s relatively similar price. The handicap line increases from Scratch in 'Quarter Goals' or 'Quarter Balls', expressed as + or - 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 1, 1 1/4, 1 1/2 etc. to reflect the expected superiority of one team over the other.

The favourite in a match will have a negative handicap represented with a (-) symbol and will have to win by more goals than the handicap in order to be a winner. The outsider in the match will receive a positive handicap represented with a (+) symbol, which will be added to the final score.

Whole ball and half ball handicaps: The handicap is applied to the final result of the match and the team with the most goals after the handicap has been applied will be the winner. If the number of goals for each team are level after the handicap has been applied, it will result in a push with the stake being returned.

Split Ball Handicaps: A split ball handicap is where the level of favouritism is between a half ball and a whole ball. The handicap is presented as 0 : 1/4. In this instance, your stake is being split equally between the whole ball and half ball handicaps.

For example:
NEWCASTLE 0 : 1/4 LIVERPOOL
If you place a £100 bet on LIVERPOOL + 1/4 you actually have two bets split as follows, £50 LIVERPOOL + 0 goal and £50 LIVERPOOL + 1/2 goal.
If the match finishes as a 0-0 draw, then after applying the handicap the scores would be as follows;
LIVERPOOL plus zero would result in NEWCASTLE 0 - 0 LIVERPOOL - your £50 part of the bet on LIVERPOOL minus plus zero would be a push and the stake returned to you.
LIVERPOOL plus a half a goal would result in NEWCASTLE 0 - 0.5 LIVERPOOL - your £50 part of the bet on LIVERPOOL plus a half goal would be a winner

For example, Tampa Bay +1.5 v Calgary -1.5, result: Tampa Bay 2-3 Calgary. Tampa Bay wins on the handicap. Overtime counts for all puck lines.
Total Goals/Team Totals - The game total result is the combined goals for both teams inclusive of overtime. At least 15 minutes of official time must elapse in the 3rd period for bets to stand, unless the total is already over. In the event of the totals goals being the exact quote where no exact price is offered, all stakes are refunded.

'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".

The start of any motor race is defined as the signal to start the warm up lap.
