1. If the wagering
offer on a match includes
the draw as a third option and the match ends
in a draw, wagers on the draw will be paid,
while wagers on both teams will be lost.
2. Soccer kickoff
dates and times displayed on our sponsor websites
are an indication only and are not guaranteed
to be correct. If it is unclear as to
whether bets should stand or be refunded because
of a postponement, Most soccer sportsbooks will
follow the consensus rulings of bookmakers in
Asia and in Europe.
3. Unless otherwise
specified, wagers on the outcome of a match
will be decided on regulation time only.
This includes two halves of play and any time
the referee adds on to compensate for injuries
and other stoppages. It does not include periods
of extra time nor penalty shootouts.
4. If a match
is suspended before full time is reached,
and not completed the same day, wagers on the
outcome of the match are considered void and
all stakes shall be returned. Wagers on propositions
that have not been decided shall also be voided
and stakes returned. Wagers on propositions
that have been decided (examples include, but
are not limited to: first goalscorer, if a goal
has been scored; first half wagering, if the
first half is complete; first card, if a player
has been sent off or booked) will be settled
Betting: Soccer games may have either
a Single Handicap or a Double Handicap.
This bet type is similar to a bet on the spread
For example: Arsenal -1, -125
Newcastle +1, +113
If Arsenal wins the match by two goals or
more, Arsenal bettors win and Newcastle bettors
lose. If the match is drawn or if Newcastle
wins, Newcastle bettors win and Arsenal bettors
lose. If Arsenal wins by exactly one goal, all
bettors receive a refund.
This bet type splits a wager into two bets,
each with the same moneyline, but at a different
For example: Real
Madrid -1 and -1.5, -108
Barcelona +1 and +1.5, +100
A client who bets $100 on Real Madrid actually
has two separate bets on Real Madrid: $50 on
Real Madrid -1 at -108 and $50 on Real Madrid
-1.5 at -108.
A client who bets $50 on Barcelona actually
has two separate bets on Barcelona: $25 on Barcelona
+1 at +100 and $25 on Barcelona +1.5 at +100.
A match must reach full time for wagers on the
total number of goals scored in the match to
7. Should there
be a dispute over a proposition (examples
include, but are not limited to: name of the
first goalscorer; time of a goal) wagers will
be settled and paid based on the reports of
the sporting media.
(Parlays, Multis): We accept accumulators
on the day of the match only. Clients may win
a limited amount on accumulators that share
a common selection (team or draw). Should the
sum total of the winning accumulators return
more than the limit allowed, the client will
receive only the prescribed maximum. These limits
do not include the amount staked.
The maximum accumulator (parlay) win for matches
in the English Premier League, Italian Serie
A, German Bundesliga I, Spanish Primera Liga,
European Champions' League (group stages forward),
UEFA Cup (third round forward), World Cup final
tournament or European Championship final tournament
The maximum accumulator (parlay) win for any
other match is $10,000.
9. Wagers on
the first half of a soccer match include 45
minutes of play plus any stoppage time added
by the referee at the end of the first half.
If the first half is not completed, wagers shall
be void and stakes returned.
Wagers on the second half of a soccer match
include 45 minutes of play plus any stoppage
time added by the referee at the end of the
second half. Extra periods, golden goals, and
shootouts are not included in second half wagering.
Goals scored in the first half do not count
toward the second half wager.
Example: Suppose AC Milan lead Juventus 1-0
at half time and the odds on the second half
are Juventus -0.5. The -0.5 applies to the second
half of play only. Therefore Juventus bettors
win if Juventus scores more goals in the second
half than AC Milan scores in the second half.
AC Milan bettors win if the teams score an equal
number of goals in the second half, or if AC
Milan scores more goals in the second half than
Juventus scores in the second half.
The match must reach full time for second
half wagers to stand.
10. Bets on teams
to qualify or to advance to the next round of
Bets are paid out on the referee’s final
whistle at the match’s natural conclusion,
whether the match is decided in regular time,
extra time, or in a penalty shootout. Extra
time and penalty shootouts are always included
for betting purposes.
In a one-leg match all bets have action once
the match kicks off. If the referee abandons
a one-leg match (for reasons including, but
not limited to: crowd disturbances, unplayability
of the pitch, or one team not having enough
players to continue) bets will be paid based
on decisions of the relevant governing body.
Bets will stand while the governing body considers
the circumstances of the abandonment and determines
what remedy is to be taken (including, but no
limited to: forfeiture, resumption of play at
a later time, or a replay). If a team is disqualified
before the match kicks off, all bets are void.
If the rules prescribe a replay for a drawn
match, all bets stand for the replay.
In a two-leg match, all bets have action once
the second leg kicks off, provided that the
first leg has not been ruled a forfeit. If the
first leg is ruled a forfeit, all bets on teams
‘to qualify’ or ‘to advance’
are void. If the second leg is abandoned, all
bets remain valid and will be paid based on
decisions of the relevant governing body.
11. Live betting:
All bets taken while Live Betting is being offered
INCLUDE all goals already scored in the match
up to the point the bet is struck and will be
settled based on the final score.
Example: Real Madrid lead 2-0 and are currently
offered at -3. If Real Madrid win by 4 goals
or more, bettors backing Real Madrid -3 win,
and bettors backing the opposition at +3 lose.
If Real Madrid win by exactly 3 goals, all bets
struck at Real Madrid -3 or the opponents +3
are refunded. If Real Madrid win the match by
two goals, or win by one goal, or do not win
the match, bettors backing Real Madrid -3 lose,
and bettors backing the opposition +3 win.
Unless otherwise stated at the time of offer,
bets on live matches stand if and only if the
match reaches full time.
Most sportsbooks cannot guarantee that odds
will be offered at any specific time during
the match; odds will not regularly be offered
after the 80th minute of play.
