Bally Bet Sports House Rules (Colorado)

Last Updated: September 8, 2023 

These Bally Bet House Rules (the “Sports House Rules”) govern the use of the Bally Bet Platform (as defined in the Bally Bet General Terms and Conditions) and are part of the Bally Bet General Terms and Conditions. The Sports House Rules apply in relation to the markets offered and bets placed on the Bally Bet Platform.

Bally’s reserves the right to amend the Sports House Rules at any time subject to regulatory approval by the Colorado Division of Gaming. Any such revision will be binding and effective immediately upon notification to customers of such rule changes and any bets accepted after the rule changes have been posted shall be governed by the updated Sports House Rules. 

Bally Bet Patrons should make themselves aware of all the Sports House Rules affecting any market on which they wish to place a bet. 

A. CONDITIONS OF AGREEMENT

(b) The use of the Bally Bet Sports Book is subject to the regulations imposed by the Colorado Division of Gaming. To the extent that any decision issued by the Colorado Division of Gaming conflicts, or is inconsistent, with these Sports House Rules, the decision issued by the Colorado Division of Gaming will supersede any relevant clause(s) of these Sports House Rules. 

(c) Bally Bet reserves the right to make changes to the Sports House Rules including, but not limited to, betting limits and offerings.

3. FUNDING

(a) To place a bet, the Account Holder will need to deposit funds into their Bally Bet account. Funds deposited via a payment processor may take a few days to clear before they are available for wagering, during which time the funds are held in the account of the relevant payment processor on the Account Holder’s behalf. 

(b) To place a bet, Bally’s allows the Account Holder to direct their eligible balance available to the Account Holder for wagering in the State of Colorado, in which the Account Holder holds an account. For more information on deposits and funding please refer to the Bally Bet General Terms and Conditions.

ii. Debit cards

iii. Credit cards

iv. Bally Bet Play+ Card

v. Direct payment via bank wire transfer

(e) It is not possible to transfer player funds between two player accounts. 

(f) A transaction log/account statement history is available to Account Holders. 

4. BET ACCEPTANCE

(a) A bet accepted by Bally’s will remain valid and cannot be withdrawn unless such bet was accepted in Obvious Error. It is the Account Holder’s responsibility to ensure details of the bets placed are correct. Under no circumstance will Bally’s accept any responsibility for any mistakes (perceived or actual), deriving from either Obvious Errors or any other reason. 

(b) A bet is not accepted until it shows in the Account Holder’s bet history. Once it does, the contract will be considered duly formed. In cases of uncertainty about whether a bet has been accepted, the Account Holder is requested to check the open (pending) bets or contact Customer Service for confirmation. No bet or wager will be considered as accepted unless confirmed via the Account Holder’s bet history or Customer services. 

(c) Should a dispute arise about the acceptance (or lack thereof) of any bet, or the time at which any bet was placed, the Bally’s transaction log database will be the ultimate authority in determining such matters.

(d) Bally’s may refuse to accept any bets at any time and for any lawful reason including in order to:

i. Preserve the viability of the offered market (for example, without limitation, in relation to events where there is an extraordinary or unbalanced number of bets on the same market).

ii. Protect the Account Holder (e.g., without limitation, in relation to the event in which the Account Holder may be subject to fraud and Bally’s seeks to protect the player).

iii. Protect other users (e.g., without limitation, in connection with the event in which the Account Holder has a betting pattern that could adversely affect the regular betting activity of other users).

iv. To protect Bally’s (for example, without limitation, in the event that the Account Holder exhibits money laundering, collusive or fraudulent behaviour, we suspect that Account Holder is using a third party's account, is allowing a third party to use the account, or is using automated means, bots, software or similar means, or engaging in arbitrage).

(e) Bally’s, depending on the level of risk, instead of refusing a bet or a wager, may accept the bet request placed by the Account Holder up to a certain amount thereof. 

5. BETTING AND PAYOUT LIMITATIONS

(a) In order to guarantee the viability of each market, to avoid potential cases of fraud and match-fixing, and to be able to make a correct estimate of the risk involved in each product offered, Bally’s reserves the right to limit the net payout (the payout after the stake has been deducted) on any bet or combination of bets by one Account Holder by reducing the amount the Account Holder is permitted to place on the wager, prior to wagering. 

(b) Bally’s reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to decline, all, or part of, any bet requested. This includes the possibility that a "System Bet" as defined in Section (B)(4) is not accepted in full, either in terms of stakes or combinations included in said "System Bet". 

(c) All bets placed through any Bally’s platform, also including bets requesting manual approval, may be subject to a time delay prior to acceptance, the length of which may vary. Such delay is to be determined by Bally’s in its sole discretion. 

(d) All odds offered are subject to variation. Such fluctuation is determined solely at Bally Bet's discretion. Bets are accepted only at the odds available in the betting grid at the time the bet was accepted by Bally Bet, irrespective of any other claim or previous publication present on the website or any other media detailing otherwise. Any change in odds while placing a wager will result in a notification to the patron within the sports wagering platform.

(e) Patrons may choose to display odds on their wagering screen in American or Decimal format. However, all payout calculations for wagers will be calculated based on Decimal odds, irrespective of any other format a patron chooses to display on their account at the time of bet placement. This may result in rounding differences between an expected payout and actual payout. The exact actual payout amount will be shown to the patron at the time of bet placement, which will only be altered in the case of voids, pushes, or allowable deductions (e.g. Dead Heat Rule, tax withholding).
Below is a table that shows the decimal odds that are used for payout calculations by the system, the corresponding US odds (shown on the betslip) and what the exact decimal odds would be based on the US odds (Decimal odds from US).

True Decimal Odds
US Odds
Decimal Odds from US
1.41-2451.408
1.48-2101.476
1.56-1801.556
1.74-1361.735
1.91-1101.909

For example, if a patron wagers $100 at decimal odds of 1.91, which will be presented in American odds as -110, the patron will get a payout of $191 rather than $190.9.

6. CANCELLING (VOIDING OF BETS)

(a) A bet can be declared void by Bally’s. If Bally’s declares a bet void, the bet will be settled with the decimal odds of 1.00 or US odds of -100.  

(b) A bet made as a parlay or an accumulative bet shall remain valid with recalculated odds, notwithstanding a match or an event which is part of the accumulative bet being void.

(c) Bally’s reserves the right, to declare a bet void, totally or partially, if any of the following, or similar, circumstances have occurred:

i. Bets have been offered, placed and/or accepted due to an Obvious Error and/or at odds which significantly differ from those currently present elsewhere in the betting industry market (see Section (A)(2)(a));

ii. Bets placed while the website was encountering technical problems, that would otherwise not have been accepted;

iii. Influence Betting;

iv. Syndicate Betting;

v. A result has been affected by criminal actions - directly or indirectly;

vi. A public announcement has occurred in relation to the bet which significantly alters the odds;

vii. A bet has been offered on the relevant market in breach of the gambling regulation in the specific jurisdiction that the bet was made;

viii. A bet or bets which are structured to avoid Anti-Money Laundering requirements.  

(d) Past-posting and other cancellations: While Bally’s employs its most reasonable endeavours to ensure the best user-experience, should a market be available for betting when it should have been removed or else with incorrect odds, Bally’s reserves the right to void all bets accepted within said circumstances in accordance with Section (A)(6)(c). Similar situations include, but are not limited to:

(i) 'Pre-match' bets placed/accepted after the event has started;

(ii) 'Live' bets placed/accepted at incorrect odds due to delayed or failing ‘Live’ coverage, or on odds which represented a different score than the actual;

(iii) Bets placed following the last instance that a participant/outcome had any chance to influence the match/event scoring applicable to the relevant market and an eventual withdrawal/disqualification/cancellation/format change or anything which precludes the ability of the applicable participant/outcome to influence said scoring will be declared void;

(iv) Bets placed with odds that do not reflect that a related event was underway and where conditions could have been altered in a direct and indisputable way, or else after an event that could normally be deemed as leading to the outcome is happening or has happened already.

(e) Related contingencies: Unless placed via Bally's in-event combination functionality, or offered explicitly as a specific offering, Bally’s prohibits accumulator bets that include two or more outcomes which might turn out to be related (e.g. Team X to become champions and Player Y to be Top Goal Scorer in the same league). Although Bally’s takes steps to prevent such possibilities, in the eventuality that this would happen, Bally’s reserves the right, to declare void all parts of the accumulative bet which include the correlated outcomes whose odds are not indicative of the related contingency.

(f) Bets can be voided regardless of whether the event has been settled or not.

(a) PROHIBITED WAGERS: Any wager involving any of the following criteria is NOT approved and is NOT permitted:

i. Rules and conditions published in conjunction with an offer and/or campaign; then

ii. The Sport Specific Rules of these Sports House Rules; then

iii. The General Betting Rules of these Sports House Rules; then

iv. Bally’s General Terms and Conditions.

(d) In cases where Bally’s, in its sole discretion, deems that the Rules are inconclusive, Bally’s reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to settle affected bets on an individual basis on the basis of equity, attaining itself to generally accepted betting norms, customs and definitions.

(e) Adaptations into other languages of these House Rules, or any other text which can be associated with bet offers, are done purely for informative purposes. Although precautions have been taken to assure the most accurate rendition of these terms in the specific language, Bally’s will not accept any liability for any incompatibility between the English version and any other language. Thus, in case of discrepancy between the English version and the respective translation, the former will be deemed as binding and will be the basis upon which the offers will be settled.

Bonus funds and any winnings derived therefrom are only converted to cash in according with the express terms of the bonus offered and the promotion-specific terms and conditions. Bonus funds that have not been converted to cash may be forfeited under circumstances identified in the terms and conditions of a specific promotion, bonus, or special offer. In instances where a promotion, bonus, or special offer conflicts with these Sports House Rules, the terms of the promotion, bonus, or special offer shall prevail. 

A. GENERAL RULES

1. COMMON TERMS OF REFERENCE

(a) Unless listed either in conjunction with the bet offer, or else in the Sport Specific rules, all bets should be considered valid for the result at the end of the "Regular Time" or "Full Time" only. "Regular Time" or "Full time" is defined as interpreted by the official rules published by the respective governing body. For example, in Football, full time is stipulated to be 90 minutes including injury time, and in Ice Hockey it is stipulated as the 3 x 20-minute periods. Should the governing body decide to stipulate, before the start of the event, that the said event is to be played over a different duration, this will be treated as being the official rules for the event (for example, football matches played with 3 x 30 minutes or 2 x 40 minutes formats). Nonetheless, such occurrence is limited to the "regular" playing time and does not include any prolongation such as extra time or overtime, unless explicitly stated.

(b) "Livebetting" is where it is possible to bet during an ongoing match or event. Bally’s does not acknowledge or accept any liability whatsoever if it not possible to place a bet or the live score update is not correct. At all times it is the Account Holder's responsibility to be aware of the match and the events surrounding it such as the current score, its progression and how much time remains before the match is completed. Bally’s does not accept any liability for changes to the Livebetting schedule or interruption of the Livebetting service.

(c) The Cash Out function allows the Account Holder the possibility to redeem a bet, which status has not been settled yet, at its current value. It is available on selected events both in pre-match and live, as well as on both single and multiple bets. Cash Out functionality cannot be used on free bets. Cash Out requests might be subject to the same delay procedure as listed in Section (A)(5)(b). Should it happen that during this delay, for whatever reason, either the offer is removed, or odds fluctuate, the Cash Out request will not be accepted, and the Account Holder will be notified with an on-screen message. Bally’s reserves the right to offer such functionality at its own discretion and does not acknowledge or accept any liability whatsoever should the functionality not be available. Should a Cash Out request be successful, the bet will be settled immediately and any subsequent events which occur in relation with the bet will not be considered. In the instance of a Cash Out bet having suffered from a technical, pricing or settlement error at any time between the time of original offering and the final settlement, Bally’s reserves the right to rectify such inaccuracy in accordance with Section (A)(9)(b).

(d) The "Participant" is an object constituting part of an event. In "Head-to-Head" and "Triple-Head" the Participant only refers to objects that are subject to the "Head-to-Head" or "Triple-Head" event in question. For sake of clarity a “participant” is to be intended as a single player, a team or any group of individuals grouped/listed together. Any reference to participants within these rules is to be intended accordingly regardless of whether its definition is in singular or plural.

(e) The “match” or “game” start time shown on the Bally Bet Platform is to be treated for information purposes only.  Game times may not accurately reflect the actual starting time of the game or match and is subject to change. A wager accepted after the game or match start time shown on the Bally Bet Platform does not constitute an in-play wager or a wager accepted after the game has started. Bally’s reserves the right, to suspend, partially or completely, the betting activity at any time where it deems necessary. 

(f) Statistics or editorial text published on the Bally’s website(s) are to be considered as added information. Bally’s does not acknowledge or accept any liability if the information is not correct. At all times it is the Account Holder’s responsibility to be aware about circumstances relating to an event.

(g) Theoretical return in fixed odds betting to the player is given by the odds from all possible outcomes in the offer. The theoretical payback to a player on a bet offer with 3 outcomes a, b and c can be calculated as follows. 

Theoretical % = 1 / (1 /” odds outcome a” + 1 / “odds outcome b” + 1 / “odds outcome c”) x 100

2. BET TYPES

(a) "Match" (aka 1X2) is where it is possible to bet on the (partial or definite) outcome of a match or event. The options are: "1" = Home team/Player 1, or the participant listed to the left side of the offer; "X" = Draw/Tie, or the selection in the middle; "2" = Away team/Player 2, or the participant listed to the right side of the offer. In particular instances or specific competitions, Bally Bet might display an offer in the so-called “American” format (ie: Away Team @ Home Team), where the host team is listed following the visiting team. Irrespective of the positioning of the teams on the board/betslip, the references to “Home” and “Away” teams will always refer to the actual teams playing at home (host) and away (visitor) respectively, as determined by the official organization bar the exceptions as detailed in individual sport rules. 

(b) "Correct Score" (aka Result Betting) is where it is possible to bet on the (partial or definite) exact score of a match/event, or part of it. 

(c) "Over/Under" (aka Totals) is where it is possible to bet on the (partial or definite) amount of a predefined occurrence (e.g. goals, points, corners, rebounds, penalty minutes, etc.). Should the total amount of the listed occurrences be exactly equal to the betting line, then all bets on this offer will be declared void. Example: an offer where the betting line is 128.0 points and the match ends with the result 64-64 will be declared void. 

(d) "Odd/Even" is where it is possible to bet on the (partial or definite) amount of a predefined occurrence (e.g. goals, points, corners, rebounds, penalty minutes, etc.)."Odd" is 1, 3, 5 etc.; "Even" is 0, 2, 4 etc. 

(e) A "Head-to-Head" and/or "Triple-Head" is a competition between two or three participants/outcomes, originating from either an officially organized event, or else, as virtually defined by Bally Bet.

(f) "Half time/Full time" is where it is possible to bet on the result in Half time and the outcome at the end of the listed timeframe. E.g. if at Half time the home team is leading 1-0 and the match ends 1-1, the winning outcome is 1/X. Bets on this market will be declared void should the match be played in a format where it is impossible to determine an outcome based on the timeframes listed within the offer. If the sport is unable to conclude in the time rules according to each sport, a Half time/Full time wager will be voided. 

(g) "Period betting" is where it is possible to bet on the outcome of each separate period within a match/event. E.g. If the period scores in an ice hockey match are 2-0 / 0-1 / 1-1, the winning outcome is 1/2/X. Bets on this market will be declared void should the match be played in a format where it is impossible to determine an outcome based on the timeframes listed within the offer.

 

(h) "Draw No Bet" (aka Moneyline) is where it is possible to bet on either "1" or "2". It is also common practice to refer to "Draw No Bet" in cases where no draw odds are offered. Bets will be voided should the specific match/event not produce any winning outcome (E.g. match ends as a draw), or the occurrence not happen (E.g. First Goal, Draw No Bet and match ends 0-0). 

(i) "Handicap" (aka Spread) is where it is possible to bet on whether the chosen outcome will be victorious once the listed handicap is added/subtracted (as applicable) to the match/period/total score to which the bet refers to. In those circumstances where the result after the adjustment of the handicap line is exactly equal to the betting line, then all bets on this offer will be declared void. Example: a bet on -3.0 goals will be declared void if the chosen team wins the match by exactly 3 goals difference (3-0,4-1, 5-2, etc). Any reference in this section to the term “margin” is intended to be understood as the outcome emerging from the subtraction of the goals/points scored by the 2 teams/participants.
 

Unless otherwise stated, all handicaps listed on the Bally Bet Platform are to be calculated based on the result from the start of the listed match/period to the end of the specified match/period. It is however customary that for certain handicap bet offers in specific sports (Asian Handicap in Football), only the outcomes obtained from the time of bet placement until the end of the listed timeframe will be taken into consideration, thus disregarding any goals/points scored before the time the bet was placed and accepted. Any bet offer with these characteristics will be clearly displayed on site and highlighted in the bettors’ Bet History with the score at the time of bet placement.

 

There are 3 different “handicap betting” formats:

 

(1) 2-way Handicap: Team A (-1.5) vs Team B (+1.5)
 

Example: 

 •Team A is given a -1.5 goal handicap in the match. For the bet to be won, Team A must win the match with a margin equal or bigger than the listed handicap (ie. 2 goals or more). 

 • Team B is given a +1.5 goal advantage in the match. For the bet to be won, Team B must either win the match, match finish in a draw or not lose with a margin equal or bigger than their listed advantage (ie. lose with a 1 goal margin).

 

(2) 3-way Handicap: Team A (-2) Draw (Exactly 2) Team B (+2)
 

Example:
 

• Team A is given a 2 goal handicap in the match. For the bet to be won, Team A must win the match with a bigger margin than the listed handicap (ie. 3 goals or more). 

 • Draw would be the victorious outcome should the match end up with exactly the listed margin (ie. match ends with results such as 2-0, 3-1 and 4-2). 

 • Team B is given a 2 goal advantage in the match. For the bet to be won, Team B must either win the match, match finish in a draw or not lose with a margin equal or bigger than their listed advantage (ie. lose with only a 1 goal margin). 

(3) Asian Handicap: Team A (-1.75) vs Team B (+1.75)
 

Example:
 

• Team A is given a -1.75 goal handicap in the match. This means that the stake is divided into 2 equal bets and placed on the outcomes -1.5 and -2.0. For the bet to be fully paid out at the listed odds, Team A must win the match with a bigger margin than both of their listed handicaps (ie. 3 goals or more margin). In the eventuality that Team A wins with only a 2 goal margin, the bet will be considered as partially won with a full payout on the -1.5 part of the bet and a refund on the -2.0 side since the outcome on that part of the bet would be considered a “tie”. Should the match produce any other outcome, including a Team A victory with only 1 goal of margin, the whole stake would be lost. 

 • Team B is given a +1.75 goal advantage in the match. This means that the stake is divided into 2 equal bets and placed on the outcomes +1.5 and +2.0. For the bet to be fully paid out at the listed odds, Team B must either win the match, match finish in a draw or not lose with a margin equal or bigger than any of their listed advantages (ie. lose with only a 1 goal margin). In the eventuality that Team B loses with exactly a 2 goal margin, the bet will be considered as partially lost with a refund on the -2.0 part of the bet and a loss on the -1.5 part of the bet. Should the match produce any other outcome which results in a defeat of Team B with a margin of 3 or more goals, the whole stake would be lost.

 

(j) "Double Chance" is where it is possible to bet simultaneously on two (partial or definite) outcomes of a match or event. The options are: 1X, 12 and X2 with "1", "X" and "2".

 

(k) "Outright" or "Place" betting is where it is possible to choose from a list of alternatives and bet on the eventuality that a participant wins or places within a specified position in the classification of the listed event/competition. Should two or more participants share finishing positions, the settlement will be based on the Dead Heat Rule.

 

(l) An “Each Way” bet (aka EW) refers to a bet where the chosen selection must either Win or else Place within the payout terms. The bet is divided in two parts (the “Win” part and the “Place” part) of an equal stake. Settlement of such bets will take into account the applicable rules governing the "Win" and "Place" bets, namely the Sport-specific rules.

 

(m) "Goal minutes" is where it is possible to bet on the sum of the minutes when the goals have been scored. When settling such bets, goals scored in injury time of both halves are to be considered as having been scored in the 45th minute in case the goal was scored in the first half injury time and the 90th minute in case the goal was scored in the second half injury time. Own goals will not count towards the settlement of individual player’s ‘goal minutes'.

 

(n) “Player Propositions” or "Props" refers to a bet on a verifiable statistical result of an individual player or group of players within a wagering event. Examples include: Over or Under 1.5 touchdown passes for a Quarterback, Over or Under 55.5 Rebounds + Points + Assists for a Point Guard, First touchdown scorer in an NFL game, anytime goal scorer in a soccer match.

3. BETTING PROPS

(a) Fantasy/Virtual "Matches" or "Head to Heads" are implicit match-ups where the performances of two or more participants/teams which are not directly confronting each other in the same match/event/round are compared. Settlement will be based on the number of times each participant records a predefined occurrence (e.g. goals) in the respective match. The following criteria will be used to determine the settlement of these type of offerings:

i. Unless specifically stated the bets refer to the next official match/event/round (as applicable) that the listed participants/teams are scheduled to take part in.

ii. All relative matches/events must be completed on the same day/session which the match/event/round is scheduled to be completed for bets to stand, except for those offers the outcomes of which has been decided prior to the abandonment and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, which will be settled according to the decided outcome. 

iii. Results for these offers will only take into account occurrences deriving from the actual play. Results attributable to walk-overs as well as other decisions as specified in clauses (b), (c) and (d) of Section (B)(5) will not be taken into consideration.

iv. Should the aforementioned criteria be inconclusive in determining the outcome for these offers, the following criteria will be progressively referenced to in order to settle the offering: 

(i) the applicable Sport-specific rules as listed in Section (C); 

(ii) Result Settlement rules as listed in Section (B)(5).

Bets will be settled as void should it still be impossible to determine a winning outcome.

(b) "Grand Salami" is where it is possible to bet on the total number of listed occurrences (Example: Total Goals, Total Runs) happening in a collection of matches/events on a specified round/day/match day. All relative matches/events must be completed for bets to stand except for those the outcomes of which have been decided prior to the abandonment and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, which will be settled according to the decided outcome.

(c) Over/Under bets on classification of participants in performances/events must be interpreted as follows: "Over" means a worse or lower position while "Under" means a better or higher position. Example: A bet on a player's classification in a tournament with an Over/Under line 2.5 will be settled as Under if the player classifies first or second. All other placements will be settled as Over. 

(d) Bets on "Quarter / Half / Period X" refer to the result/score achieved in the relevant timeframe and does not include any other points/goals/events tallied from other parts of the event/match. Bets on this market will be declared void should the match be played in a format where it is impossible to determine an outcome for the timeframes specified in the offer.

(e) Bets on "Result at end of Quarter / Half / Period X" refer to the result of the match/event after termination of the stipulated timeframe and will take into account all other points/goals/events tallied from previous parts of the event/match. Bets on this market will be declared void should the match be played in a format where it is impossible to determine an outcome for the timeframes specified in the offer.

(f) Bets on "Race to X Points / Race to X Goals..." and similar offers refer to the team/participant that is the first to reach the specified tally of points/goals/events. If the offer lists a timeframe (or any other period restriction), it will not include any other points/goals/events tallied from other parts of the event/match which are not related to the mentioned timeframe. Should the listed score not be reached within the stipulated timeframe (if any), all bets will be declared void, unless odds for such eventuality have been published within the market.

(g) Bets on "Winner of Point X / Next to Score " and similar offers refer to the team/participant scoring/winning the listed occurrence. For the settlement of these offers, no reference to events happening prior to the listed occurrence will be taken into consideration. Should the listed occurrence not be scored/won within the stipulated timeframe (if any), all bets will be declared void, unless odds for such eventuality have been published within the market.

(h) Bets referring to the happening of a particular occurrence in a pre-defined time order, such as “First Card”, or “Next Team to receive penalty minutes” will be settled as void should it not be possible, without any reasonable doubt, to decide the winning outcome, for example in case of players from different teams which are shown a card in the same interruption of play. 

(i) "To score first and win" refer to the listed team/participant being the first to register any scoring in the match and going on to win the match. Should there be no scoring in the match all bets will be settled as void.

(j) Any reference to "Clean sheet"/”Shutout” indicates that the listed team/participant must not concede any goal/points during the match/relevant timeframe.

(k) " To win from behind" refers to the listed team/participant winning the match after having been at least 1 goal/point behind their opponents at any point in the match/relevant timeframe.

(l) Any reference for a team/participant to win all halves/periods (e.g. Team to win both halves) means that the listed team must score more goals/points than its opponent during all the stipulated halves/periods of the match.

(m) Any reference to "Injury Time" refers to the amount displayed by the designated official and not to the actual amount played.

(n) Settlement of bets on offers such as "Man of the Match", "Most Valuable Player" etc. will be based on the competition's organisers’ decision, unless otherwise stated.

(o) Settlement of bets which make reference to terms such as "decisive goal" will be settled based on the scorer of the goal that at the end of the match/tie (as applicable) proves to be the one that has produced an unassailable lead, following which any further goals would prove to be irrelevant towards the final outcome. For a bet to be settled as "YES" the listed player's team must be declared winner of that particular match (in case of one match) or progressing to the next round/winning the competition. Goals scored in Regular Time and Extra Time count but not Penalty Shoot outs.

(p) Bets on events which feature a selection of episodes that could happen in a match (E.g. "What will happen first to the player? with options "Score a goal, Get a Yellow/Red Card, Be Substituted) will be settled as void should none of the listed events/outcomes occur, unless odds for such eventuality have been published within the market.

(q) Settlement of Transfer bets will also take into account players signed by the club on loan deals.

(r) Bets referring to Managerial changes refer to the individual in the Head Coach/Manager role (as applicable) who steps down/is removed from the position for any reason. Bets are valid even in cases where a joint responsible (if any) leaves their position and will be settled accordingly. In case that no more changes are happening between the time the bet is placed and the last league fixture (excluding play-offs, play-outs, post season, etc.) the bets placed after the last Managerial change (if any) will be void, unless a suitable option has been offered for betting. Football markets will consider and settle accordingly, any interim/caretaker Head Coach/Manager who since the last Managerial change has led the team for 10 consecutive matches.

(s) Offers referring to which team/participant will achieve a particular accomplishment against another team/participant (E.g. Next team to beat Team X) as well as offers which refer to the classification on a certain date, will stand and be settled regardless of any eventual fixture changes and number of games/rounds played.

(t) Settlement of offers referring to which team/participant will be the first to achieve a particular accomplishment against other team(s)/participant(s) (E.g. Team to score first in Matchday X) will be based upon the timeframe in the respective match in which the feat has been accomplished. Example: Team A plays on Saturday and score their first goal in the 43rd minute while Team B plays on Sunday and score their first goal after 5 minutes, then Team B will be settled as winner.

(u) From time to time Bally’s, at its sole discretion and without prejudice to related contingencies as described in Section (A)(6)(d), might decide to publish offerings referring either to the single performance of a participant/team or offerings which combine the potential outcomes of 2 or more teams/participants (example: Enhanced Multiples, Boosted Odds, etc), at higher odds than those normally available. Bally’s reserves the right to withdraw such offers, edit the respective odds and effect any further changes Bally’s might deem necessary at its sole discretion. Settlement of these offers will be based on the following criteria in the listed order:

i. Unless specifically stated the offer refers only to the listed day(s) and/or next official match/event/round (as applicable) that the listed participants/teams are scheduled to take part in at the time the offer is published.

ii. Results settled as per respective Sport-specific rules. All related events must be completed as scheduled within the applicable timeframes for bets to stand unless any other outcome in the offer would incontrovertibly determine the outcome of the offer in a way that completion (or lack of thereof) of the other events listed in the offer would not influence the outcome of the offer. Such markets will be settled according to the already determined outcomes.

iii. Unless explicitly stated within the offer, result settlement will only take into account occurrences deriving from the actual play. Results attributable to walk-overs, protests, changes to the first official result, etc will not be taken into consideration. Bets will be voided should it be impossible to determine a winning outcome in accordance with the respective Sport-specific rules.

iv. All connotations related to the offer must be fully and unquestionably complied with, for the bet to be deemed as winning, regardless of any possible conflict with the Sport-Specific rules, or with any potential interpretation based on previous or current presentation of offers related to events in that particular sport and the way these are normally presented in the Bally Bet Sports Book. Where applicable, should the offer include any outcome the result of which ties exactly the chosen Over/Under or Spread line (aka PUSH) this will not be considered as having accomplished the listed occurrence and will result in the bet being settled as LOST.

While precautions have been taken by Bally’s to ensure a superior user experience, it is to be understood that markets might fluctuate in such a way that, at any given point in time, these markets do not represent an enhanced value comparable to related bet offers currently present on the Bally Bet Sports Book. All bets remain valid regardless of these eventual fluctuations.

(v)  During selected events, Bally’s will provide users with functionality to place bets combining outcomes and occurrences from the same event (aka Intra-Event Combinations), either through pre-established combinations present in the Bally Bet Platform(excluding Enhanced Multiples, Boosted Odds, etc for which Section (B)(3)(u) applies), or through the BetBuilder functionality. Such functionality is only present at Bally’s sole discretion and without prejudice to related contingencies as described in Section (A)(6)(d). Settlement will be based on the respective Sport-specific rules. All related occurrences must be fully accomplished for a bet to be considered as having happened and eventually paid out at the odds struck. Stakes refunded should any part of the combination be settled as VOID. Where applicable, should the combination feature any outcome the result of which ties exactly the chosen Over/Under or Spread line (aka PUSH), such part of the combination will be removed from settlement calculation and bets will be paid out taking into consideration only the other parts of the combination.

(w) “Teaser+” allows the user the possibility to allocate the same pre-set amount of points to all outcomes present in a parlay (combination) containing Spreads (Handicaps), Totals (Over/Unders) or a combination of both. Example: User combines NFL Team X +6.5 points in a parlay with Over 41 points in the NFL match between Team Y and Team Z. By choosing the “Teaser+ Football 6 points” option, the lines and odds get recalculated into a parlay featuring Team X +12.5 points (previously +6.5), combined with Over 35 points (previously Over 41). Should any part of a “Teaser+” bet be settled as void (push), that particular selection will be excluded from the parlay and the computation of odds/payout will be re-adjusted accordingly.

(x) Bets referring to “Rest of the match” or similar will consider only outcomes and occurrences obtained from the time of bet placement until the end of the listed timeframe, thus disregarding any occurrences registered before the time the bet was placed and accepted.

(y) Bets on specific timeframes/intervals (example: Match result between 60:00-89:59), will consider only outcomes and occurrences accumulated during the specified timeframe/interval. Settlement will not take into account any other points/goals/events tallied from other parts of the event/match outside the specified timeframe/interval, including stoppage/injury time, unless specified.

4. SYSTEM BETS

(a) In Pre-match and Live betting, it is possible to combine up to twelve (12) different offers on a single coupon. Based on these twelve offers, Account Holders can choose their own number of singles, doubles, trebles etc.

(b) Bally’s reserves the right to limit the amount of combinations due to what is known as outcome dependency/related contingencies, as defined in Section (A)(6)(d).

(c) It is possible to include one or several matches as ‘bankers’ which means that the selected matches/events will be included in all coupons.

(d) A ‘Trixie’ is a combination, which includes one treble and three doubles from a selection of three matches.

(e) A ‘Patent’ is a combination, which includes one treble, three doubles and three singles from a selection of three matches.

(j) A ‘Goliath’ is a combination, which includes one eightfold, eight sevenfolds, twenty-eight sixfolds, fifty-six fivefolds, seventy fourfolds, fifty-six trebles and twenty-eight doubles from a selection of eight matches.

For display purposes, when necessary, the second digit after the decimal point of the odds is shown as rounded up in the Account Holder’s bet history to the nearest decimal number. The payout will however be made based on the actual odds multiplied by the stake, disregarding the aforementioned rounding.

5. RESULT SETTLEMENT

(a) When settling results Bally’s will do its utmost to attain itself to information obtained first-hand (during or exactly after the event has been concluded), through TV transmissions, streaming (web-based and through other sources) as well as official sites. Should this information be omitted from first-hand viewing and/or official sources and/or there is an obvious mistake in the information included in the sources above, the settlement of the bet offer will be based on other public sources. Nevertheless, unless a clear and verifiable Obvious Error is noted in the first official result, settlement of bets will not include any changes deriving from and/or attributable to, but not limited to: disqualifications, penalisations, protests, sub-judice results and/or successive changes to the official result after the event has been completed and a result has been announced, even preliminarily.

(b) Settlement of markets held over for more than 1 round/stage (e.g., Season Bets), will only consider amendments affecting bets for which settlement has not yet been decided. Such measures must be announced by the governing body before the last scheduled round/stage will be considered. Any changes effected after this date, or else referring to bets which have already been settled based on events happening during the event/competition will not be considered.

(c) Unless otherwise specified within the offer, implied by the official competition rules or announced beforehand as being the official format for that particular event, any changes from the default sport/event/competition format that result in Bally’s offering odds/lines/totals which are incongruent with the revised playing format, will result in the voiding of the bets affected by the format change.

(d) Offers where the format change does not preclude the governing body from declaring a winner (ex. Season winner), irrespective whether there will be a continuation of play or not, revised length of season/competition etc., will be settled according to the result issued by the governing body granted that said result is issued as per the timeframes listed below and is congruent to the odds/lines/totals available at time of offer publishing.The following settlement provisions apply in such cases:

(i) Should the governing body declare a relevant outcome within 3 months from the last match played before the interruption (be it final classification, cancellation or intentions to resume play), markets will be determined accordingly.

(ii) In case no applicable official communication/result is issued within 3 months from the last match played before the interruption, markets will be settled in accordance with the last classification/rankings available, regardless of number of matches played/current stage/phase of the competition.

(iii) Markets which refer to whether a team/participant will reach a subsequent phase of the competition (example: Play-Offs) will be settled as void should there be any changes to the format/number of participants scheduled to contest that particular phase or that particular phase is not played at all, unless an outcome based on the market connotations at time of bet publishing has already been determined and the change in number of applicable matches bears no influence the outcome of the offer.

(iv) Markets which odds are dependent/based on a full schedule of matches being played (example: Over/Under Wins in the Regular Season/Points in the League), will be declared void should the number of matches played end up being different than originally scheduled at the time of bet publishing, unless an outcome has already been determined and the change in number of applicable matches bears no influence the outcome of the offer.

(e) Occurrences which have not been sanctioned and/or acknowledged by the match/event officials (e.g. disallowed goals) will not be taken into account towards the settlement of the bet. As a general rule, and unless the offer specifies otherwise, Bally’s will settle offers based on the exact time that the flow of play was interrupted/resumed (as applicable) by the occurrence in question (e.g. ball went out of play for a throw-in/goal kick or crosses the line for a goal), or play is interrupted by the referee, whichever is earliest. Occurrences are only considered awarded, if the subsequent related action is performed i.e. (Offside must result in a free kick, corners must be taken, and Goal kicks must be taken). Should the occurrence be only awarded and not taken, it will not be considered for settlement purposes.

(f) All bet offers related to matches/events which do not take place at all or are awarded a result through a walk-over decision, will be declared void. 

(g) In case of an abandoned event, all bet offers that have been decided prior to the abandonment and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, will be settled according to the decided outcome. Should the abandoned event not resume within 12 hours of its start time, all pending offers related to the event will be settled as void.

(h) In case an event is abandoned and is scheduled to restart from the beginning, all bets placed before the initial match which could not be settled through the outcomes deriving from the play prior to abandonment, will be declared void regardless of whether or when the match is continued.

(i) Unless otherwise stated either in the Sport-Specific rules or in conjunction with the bet offer, specific events forming part of tournaments/competitions which are not held, get postponed and/or rescheduled for a time/date longer than 12 hours from the last scheduled time issued by the governing body due to bad weather, crowd trouble or similar scenarios will be declared void with the following exceptions where bets will remain valid:

§ Events which starting times have not been officially confirmed yet by the governing body at time of bet placement.

§ Events which are moved due to scheduling conflicts/tv broadcasts but remain scheduled to be played within the same matchday/game week/round (as applicable) and the change does not change the order of official fixtures for any of the participants in the offer.

§ Events which start times are anticipated (brought forward) but remain scheduled to be played within the same matchday/game week/round (as applicable) and, without prejudice to past-posting and similar occurrences as defined in Section (A)(6)(d), the change does not modify the order of official fixtures for any of the participants in the offer.

For the avoidance of doubt the definition of same matchday/game week/round is to be interpreted as the order of fixtures as dictated by the governing body with each specific match representing a matchday/game week/round. Should this order not be upheld and the sequence of fixtures changes in a way that matches against other teams get scheduled in between so much that the listed fixture ceases to be the next official commitment from that particular tournament/league/competition for all teams involved, that will be considered as not part of the same matchday/game week/round and offers will be declared void. The above does not apply to Season bets which will remain valid granted that the tournament/league/competition is held and decided during the season/year it refers to, regardless of any eventual date changes. In cases of Play-offs series or other series of matches which are scheduled to confront 2 teams over 2 or more matches, any re-scheduling of a single match will be considered as being part of the same matchday regardless of the length of the re-scheduling, granted that the order of home and away fixtures in the series is not modified and the listed fixture takes place within the series. Bets will be declared void otherwise.

(j) In cases of events which have not been completed before their natural conclusion, and a result is issued through a decision by the association not more than 12 hours from the event’s start, Bally’s will use the issued decision as the official result for offers related to the event's outcome, such as Match, Draw No Bet and Double Chance granted that the issued decision does not change the outcome of the said bet offers at the time of the abandonment. In that case the stakes will be refunded. All offers referring to the tallying of particular occurrences (example: Total Goals, Handicaps, etc) will be declared void except for those the outcomes of which have been decided prior to the abandonment and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, which will be settled according to the decided outcome.

(k) All bet offers related to uncompleted matches/events where the official governing body is not previously acknowledged (e.g. Club Friendlies) will be declared as void unless at least 90% of the stipulated Regular/Full time is played, see in Section (B)(1)(a). Should the match/event be abandoned after 90% has been completed, the settlement will be based on the current score at the time when the match/event was stopped.

(l) Unless stated alongside the wagering market, settlement of bet offers, such as, but not limited to, shots, shots on target, ball possession, assists, rebounds, etc. will be based according to the definition with which the official governing body issues said statistics. Unless backed by un-contradictory evidence, Bally’s will not acknowledge any complaints which derive from a personal interpretation of such terms.

(m) With the exception of Trotting and Horse Racing, wagers placed on participants/teams who take no part in an event, will be declared void. However applicable qualifying stages or similar, are to be considered part of the main event, and any participation within, is considered as validating the wager and will not be voided. Bally’s reserves the right, to apply Tattersalls Rule 4, as explained in Section (B)(6), on any competition and this will be stated in correlation to the bet offer and/or the relevant Sport-specific rule. 

(n) No refunds of bets will apply, even if the winning outcome of a match/event is a participant/outcome that has not been listed for betting purposes. On all bet offers, the Account Holder has the possibility to ask for a price on a non-listed participant/outcome. Bally’s reserves the right, to accept or decline such requests.

(o) In case a participant is disqualified/withheld/banned from taking part in a subsequent part/phase of an event/competition, the disqualification will be considered to have taken place at the time of the participant’s removal from the event. No alterations will be made to previous results, regardless of any modifications due to said actions. Bets placed after the disqualified participant last took part in the event will be declared void.

(p) If two or more Participants share the applicable finishing positions and no odds have been offered for a drawn outcome, the payout will be calculated by dividing the odds by the number of participants sharing those certain positions and are settled accordingly. The payout will always be at least equal to the stake, except in cases of “Head to Heads”, see Section (B)(2)(e) and Section (B)(5)(s). 

(q) In “Group Betting” (aka “Best of X”), all listed participants must start the event for bets to stand.

(r) In “Group Betting” (aka “Best of X”), at least one participant from the selection list must successfully complete the event for bets to stand. Should that not be the case, and the governing body does not follow specific tie-breaking criteria, the bets will be declared void.

(s) In a "Head to Head" between two or three participants, all listed participants must start the particular round/event which the bet refers to, for bets to be considered valid.

(t) In a "Head to Head" between two participants, all bets will be refunded if both participants share the same position/score or are eliminated at the same stage of the competition, unless the governing body follows specific tie-breaking procedures, in which case, these will be deemed valid.

(u) In a "Head to Head" between three participants and more than one winning outcome, the odds will be divided by the outcomes sharing the winning position, irrespective whether the net outcome is lower than the Account Holder's stake.

(v) If a "Head to Head" is offered between different rounds/stages, all participants must take part in the upcoming round/stage for bets to be valid. Should any participant listed in the offer not take any subsequent part, bets placed from after the last time the participant was active in the event will be declared void.

(w) Unless specifically stated, whenever the organising association deems it fit to include any necessary rounds, matches, or series of matches (e.g. Play-offs, Play-outs, Postseason) following the end of the so-called Regular Season in order to determine the classification, league winners, promotion/relegation, etc., Bally’s will take into account the results and outcomes deriving from these matches for settlement purposes of bets referring to the final league classification, promotion, relegation, etc. For example, seasonal bets on the team winning the NHL will refer to the Stanley Cup Winners.

(x) Offers which confront against each other the performances of two or more individuals/teams over a stipulated timeframe/competition will only be settled based on the result of the listed participants, disregarding all other participants in the same competition/event.

(y) Unless specifically stated, all offers referring to a single player’s performance in a specific domestic league (such as Total Goals Scored by Player X in League Y) or "Head to Head" bet offers involving two players’ performances in domestic leagues, will not take into account those events happening during eventual Play-offs/Play-outs/Post-season or any other matches, or series of, which would happen after the so-called Regular Season.

(z) Offers related to a total amount of occurrences/events scored/tallied by a particular team, either in a single team performance in a specific domestic league (such as Total Goals Scored by Team X), or "Head to Head" bet offers involving two teams’ performances in domestic leagues (E.g. Most Penalty Minutes in League X - Team Y vs Team Z), or a cumulative league performance (E.g. Team to receive Most Yellow Cards in League X) will not take into account those events happening during eventual Play-offs/Play-outs/Post-season or any other matches, or series of, which would happen after the so-called Regular Season, unless otherwise specified.

(aa) In a single player performance bet offer in a specific domestic league (such as Total Goals Scored by Player X in League Y) or "Head to Head" bet offers involving two players’ performances in domestic leagues, unless an outcome has already been achieved, bets will be voided should any of the following occurrences happen to any relevant participant: (i) is not part of the matchday squad for the club/team they are eligible for at time of bet placement in 50% or more of the remaining applicable matches for any reason, (ii) does not take part in at least another match after the bet has been placed, (iii) totals the same amount as the other player, unless a draw/tie option has been offered. Other sports-specific conditions may apply, please refer to the Sport-specific section. 

(bb) In a single player performance bet offer in a specific event (such as Total Goals Scored by Player X in International Tournament) or "Head to Head" bet offers involving two players’ performances in specific events, should any of the following occurrences happen to either of the participants in the selection list, the bets will be considered void: (i) does not take part at all in the event (ii) does not take part in at least another match after the bet has been placed, (iii) totals the same amount as the other participant, unless a draw/tie option has been offered.

(cc) During specific events Bally’s might decide to offer for betting a reduced selection of participants and might also include betting options such as "any other", "the field", or similar. This option includes all unlisted participants except for the ones mentioned specifically as available. 

(dd) Offers that make specific reference to a participant’s/participants’ performance in a particular event (e.g. Player X vs The Field) are to be considered void if the mentioned participant(s) do(es) not take part in the competition.

(ee)Any form of a qualification ahead of the main event is considered to be a valid part of that competition. Thus any participant who is eliminated at qualification stage will be considered losing to anyone that is pre-qualified or is successful in the qualification part.

(ff) Bet offers which originally require participant(s) to compete in two or more stages/legs to advance into a subsequent phase/round of a competition, will remain valid regardless of any postponement/movement of the actual match dates, given that said match(es) actually takes place within the frame of the competition.

(gg) A bet on a “To Qualify” market originally requiring just one stage/leg to advance to a subsequent phase/round of a competition (including any eventual prolongations/additional matches, e.g. replays) will be declared void if said match is not decided within more than 12 hours of its supposed start time.

(hh) Should an event be moved from its originally announced venue and/or have its playing surface changed, this will not be treated as a cause for offers to be voided unless (i) the Sport-specific rules dictate such, and/or the new location in which the event takes place is the habitual "home" pitch of either participant involved in the match. As a general principle, Bally’s will refer to the Home team (host) and the Away team (visitor) in accordance with the definition issued by the governing body for that particular match/competition. Bets on matches played on so-called "Neutral pitches" will remain valid, regardless of whether such information has been detailed in the bet offer and/or the positioning of the teams on the betting board/display. In cases where there is a discrepancy between the positioning of the teams/participants on the official website and their placement on the betting board/display, and such discrepancy causes a significant effect on the odds of the match/competition Bally’s will void the affected bets. Such eventuality is contemplated only in cases where the discrepancy has a material and visible effect on the odds. For example, in cases of swapped Home and Away teams in an Ice Hockey match Bally’s will void the bets. Nevertheless Bally’s will consider valid bets placed on events where the so-called home-field advantage is not considered and in cases of neutral venues. Examples of such cases include but are not limited to tennis tournaments, MMA fights, singles competitions in general, or specific events such as the final/late stages of team competitions being held in pre-established venues, like the Superbowl, the NCAA Final 4 or the Italian Football Cup Final even if the location can be deemed as a potential customary "home" pitch for either of the teams involved. In such cases, said events will be considered as being played in neutral venues and all bets stand, regardless of the positioning of the teams/participants on the official website and their placement on the betting board/display.

(ii) Information referring to gender of the teams, age groups and youth teams, as well as various definitions of reserve teams (e.g. B and C teams), is to be treated as supplementary information. The inclusion (or lack of) and correctness of such information will not be treated as sufficient cause for the voiding of the offers related to the match/event, given that this does not cause an obvious inconsistency in odds offered.

(jj) While precautions are taken by Bally’s to assure the most accurate rendition of all components involved in a bet offer, it is to be assumed that certain denominations could be represented differently due to different interpretations deriving from adaptations into another language. Such linguistic incongruence will not be treated as sufficient cause for the voiding of the offers related to the match/event, given that it does not create uncertainty with other participants. The same applies for denominations referring to events, team names, sponsor names, etc. 

(kk) In case of bets where there is reference to timeframes, they should be interpreted in the following way: “within the first 30 minutes” will include anything happening until 0 hours 29 minutes and 59 seconds; “between 10 to 20 minutes” will include anything happening from 10 minutes and 0 seconds until 19 minutes and 59 seconds.

(ll) Unless listed either in conjunction with the bet offer, or else in the Sport Specific rules, bets referring to event/match duration which include non-full integer digits (E.g. 88.5 minutes or X.5 rounds) require the full completion of the full integer of the listed duration for them to be considered won. For example: a bet on Over/Under 88.5 minutes in a Tennis match will be settled as Over only if at least 89 full minutes are completed.

(mm) Bally’s acknowledges that some bets might require the rounding-up of percentages, units or other criteria which are decisive for the settlement of the bet. Should that be the case, Bally’s reserves the right to adjust and settle accordingly.

(nn) Any reference to goals scored by specific players will not count if they are defined as ‘own goals’ (scored in their own goals) unless otherwise stated.

(oo) Any reference to confederation, nationality or similar will be subject to the definition by the governing body.

(pp) Any medals won by a team/nation per competition will count as one (1) single medal regardless of the number of team members.

(qq) Offers referring to individual player performances' over a particular period/tournament (example: Total Goals Scored by Player X during the World Cup) or confronting performances from 2 individual players during the course of the season (example: Which of Player X or Player Y will score most goals during the season), require all listed individuals to be an active participant in at least one more fixture applicable for the offer after bet acceptance for bets to stand.

(rr) Any bets referring to “breaking” of records require the listed occurrence to be fully accomplished. Equalling the record will not be considered as having fully accomplished the feat. Only the listed occurrence will count for settlement purposes.

Any events/offers not completed within the aforementioned timeframe will be settled as void, except for those offers the outcomes of which has already been decided and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, which will be settled according to the decided outcome. Bets referring to events which have been rescheduled within the same week/round will remain valid as much as said events are played within timeframe above.

(d) If for any reason, the number of rounds in a fight is changed between the time of bet acceptance and the actual fight, offers which make specific reference to rounds, such as "Round betting", "Group of Rounds", "Over/Under", "Winning Method" and “To go the distance” will be declared void.

(e) For settlement purposes, betting on rounds or groups of rounds refers to a fighter to win by KO (Knockout), TKO (Technical Knockout), or disqualification during that round or group of rounds. If for any reason, a points decision is awarded before the full number of scheduled rounds is completed (Technical Decision), offers such as “Alternate Round Betting”, “Group of rounds” and “Over/under” will be declared void, unless the outcome is already determined. 

(f) Bets referring to round/fight duration represents the actual time passed in the round/fight, as applicable, depending on the scheduled round/fight duration. For example, a bet on Over 4.5 Total Rounds in a Boxing fight will be settled as Over once a minute and a half in the 5th Round has passed.

(g) Any confirmed fight must be completed by 23:59 local time of the following day for bets to stand. Any changes in venue, location will not be deemed valid grounds for voiding of the offers.

(h) In offers where a draw/tie is possible and odds have not been offered for such outcome, bets will be settled as void should the official result be declared as such. For settlement purposes, fights the outcome of which is declared as either a “Majority draw” or a “Split draw” are to be considered as a drawn/tied outcome and offers will be settled accordingly.

(i) Settlement of statistics-based offers such as "Boxer X to be knocked down" or similar will be settled based on the results declared by the referee.

10. CRICKET

(a) General Cricket Rules:

i. In cases where no odds have been offered for a tie and the match/offer ends in a tie, bets would be settled according to the so-called “dead-heat” rule where the payout would be calculated after the odds are divided and multiplied by the stake, irrespective whether the net payout is lower than the Account Holder's stake. In competitions where other means are used to determine a winner after a tie (for example: ‘Bowl out’ or ‘Super over’) then offers will be settled based on the result after such prolongations are completed. The only exception to this rule is for “Match Odds” betting in Test/First Class/3, 4 or 5 day matches where, in the event of a tie, where both teams have completed two innings each and have scored exactly the same number of runs, bets on “Match Odds” will be settled as void.

ii. For “Total Runs Over X” (Over/Under & Odd/Even) betting, “extras” and “penalty runs” (as per match scorecards) are included for settlement purposes. Bets will be void if the over is not completed unless a result has already been determined or the over has reached its ‘natural conclusion’ (e.g. innings end/declaration). The market refers only to the listed over (e.g. “5th over” refers to over number 5, i.e. the over directly following over number 4).

iii. For “Total Runs Delivery X” (Over/Under & Odd/Even) betting, “extras” (but not “penalty runs”) as per match scorecard are included for settlement purposes. Deliveries are counted from the start of the over, and additional deliveries (resulting from ‘extras’) will be counted consecutively and separately (e.g. If delivery 1 is a wide, the next ball is considered delivery 2). 

iv. For “Boundary Over X” (Yes/No) betting, any instance of the ball striking or clearing the boundary regardless of whether the ball comes off the bat shall be deemed a boundary. This includes wides, byes, leg byes & overthrows (e.g. any instance of an in play ball that hits or clears the boundary shall be settled as yes for that over). 4 runs that are “all run” between the wicket shall not be counted as a boundary. Bets will be void if the over is not completed unless a result has already been determined or the over has reached its ‘natural conclusion’ (e.g. innings end, declaration). The market refers only to the listed over (e.g. “5th Over” refers to over number 5, i.e. the over directly following over number 4).

v. For “Wicket Over X” (Yes/No) betting, the over must be completed for bets to stand, unless a wicket has already fallen or the innings reaches its natural conclusion (e.g. innings end, declaration).

vi. For “Total Wides” (Over/Under) betting, settlement will be based on the “Runs” scored from “Wides” and not the number of “Wides” bowled. E.g. If a single wide delivery reaches the boundary it shall count as 5 total wides.

vii. For “Method of Dismissal” betting, bets will be void if either player retires due to injury or any other reason, before the wicket falls or there are no further wickets.

viii. For “Most Run Outs” betting, settlement will be based on the batting team not the fielding team. (E.g. run outs count for the team of the player that is dismissed).

ix. For “Odd/Even” betting, a ball must be bowled for bets to stand.

x. For any betting involving “ducks”, a “duck” is defined as when a player is dismissed for a score of zero runs. Any player not-out for zero runs is not considered a duck.

xi. For “Maiden in Match” betting, a maiden is considered any over bowled with no runs scored. Only completed overs with zero runs count. A minimum of 1over must be bowled for bets to stand. For settlement purposes leg-byes and byes are not applied to this bet offer, as per the match scorecard.

xii. For all “4s” betting including but not limited to total 4s, most 4s & player’s total 4s; any ‘all run’ 4s will not count towards the total. Over-throws that reach the boundary and are awarded to the batsman will be counted. No-balls that reach the boundary off the bat and are awarded to the batsman will be counted. Leg-byes & byes that reach the boundary are not included. Wides that reach the boundary are not included.

xiii. Penalty runs awarded will be counted towards the over, interval and innings for settlement purposes, as per match scorecard. If penalty runs are not awarded to a specific over, they will only count towards innings runs. 

(b) Player Cricket Rules: 

i. "Top Run Scorer" and "Top Wicket Taker" bets (including all variants by “Home Team”, Away Team”, “1st Innings” & “2nd Innings”) placed on any player not in the starting 11 will be declared void. Bets on players who are selected but do not bat or field will be settled as losers. 

ii. In the event of a tie, dead heat rules as explained in Section (C)(7)(a)(i) will apply.

iii. Additionally, for all limited overs matches the following will apply.

a. Betting requires a minimum of 20 overs to be bowled per innings of a One Day match, unless a team is all-out or the match is completed, or a minimum of 5 overs to be bowled per innings of a Twenty 20 match, T10 or Hundred match unless a team is all-out or the match is completed

iv. Additionally, for all Test matches & 4/5 day matches the following will apply.

a. Betting requires 50 overs to be completed for bets to stand, unless the Innings has reached its natural conclusion (including ‘Innings declared’).

v. All “Top Wicket Taker” bets will be settled solely on the number of wickets taken regardless of the number of runs conceded.

vi. All “Top Wicket Taker” bets will be void if no wicket is taken by any bowler in that innings.

vii. This rule excludes any Tournament or Series market as covered in Section (C)(7)(e).

viii. "Man of the Match/Player of the Match” bets placed on any player not in the starting 11 will be declared void. Bets on players who are selected but do not bat or bowl will be settled as losers. In the event of a tie, dead heat rules will apply as explained in Section (C)(7)(a)(i).

ix. “Next Man Out” & “First Batsman Dismissed” bets will be settled as void if either player retires due to injury or any other reason before the wicket falls or if there are no further wickets. Both named batsmen must be batting at the fall of the nominated wicket for bets to stand.

x. “Most Runs” (2-way & 3-way) matchups, require that both/all players reach the batting crease while a ball is bowled, though it is not necessary they face a ball nor must the quoted players have batted together, otherwise bets will be void. In the event of a tie, if no draw price was offered, dead heat rules will apply as explained in Section (C)(7)(a)(i).

xi. “Most Wickets” (2-way & 3-way) matchups, require that both/all players bowl at least 1 ball for bets to stand. In the event of a tie, if no draw price was offered, dead heat rules will apply as explained in Section (C)(7)(a)(i).

xii. “Player Performance” bets placed on any player not in the starting 11 will be declared void. Settlement is based on the following points based scoring system: 

a. 1 point per run scored (batsman only);

b. 10 points per catch taken (fielder or wicket keeper only);

c. 20 points per wicket (bowler only);

d. 25 points per stumping (wicket keeper only).

xiii. Additionally, for all limited overs matches, all bets will be declared as void should the number of overs be reduced due to weather (or any other reason) from the standard scheduled number of overs in a Twenty 20 match or any other limited overs match. Should the outcome of such offers be already decided before the interruption and no further play would possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly.

xiv. For “Player to take 5 or more Wickets/Player’s Total Wickets/Player to take a wicket” bets placed on any player not in the starting 11 will be declared void. Bets will also be void if the player does not bowl a ball.

xv. “Player to take make a Duck” (Yes/No) bets require that the player reaches the batting crease while a ball is bowled, though it is not necessary they face a ball.

xvi. For “Player to score Fastest 50/Century” betting, settlement is based on the least number of balls faced to reach the milestone (either 50 runs or 100 runs). In the event of a tie, dead heat rules will apply as explained in Section (C)(7)(a)(i).

xvii. For “Race to X Runs” bets, both players must open the batting for bets to stand.

xviii. “Player’s Total Runs/Player’s Total 4s/Player’s Total 6s” (Over/Under) betting requires that the player reach the batting crease while a ball is bowled, though it is not necessary they face a ball. In cases where a batsman's innings is ended by weather or bad light, all bets where a result has not been determined will be declared void. A result is deemed to have been determined if a batsman has passed the run total at which the bet was accepted, has been dismissed or an innings completed/declaration made. For example, if a Batsman's score stands at 50 ‘Not-Out’ when a game or innings is terminated due to bad light or rain, all bets on 50.5 runs will be voided unless the game has reached its natural conclusion. However, all bets on Over 49.5 Runs will be considered as winning while bets on Under 49.5 Runs will be settled as losing. Should a batsman retire due to injury or any other reason, his score at the end of his team's innings will be considered as the result for that bet. Additionally, for all limited overs matches, all bets will be declared as void should the number of overs be reduced due to weather (or any other reason) from the standard scheduled number of overs in a Twenty 20 match or any other limited overs match. Should the outcome of such offers be already decided before the interruption and no further play would possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly.

xix. “Player to Score 50/Half Century” (Yes/No) betting requires that the player reach the batting crease while a ball is bowled, though it is not necessary that they face a ball. A player is deemed to have scored 50 or a ‘Half century’ once their score is 50 or more runs regardless of whether the player scores a century or more. In cases where a batsman's innings is ended by weather or bad light, all bets where a result has not been determined will be declared void, unless the game has reached a natural conclusion. Should a batsman retire due to injury or any other reason, his score at the end of his team's innings will be considered as the result for that bet. Additionally, for all limited overs matches, should the intervention of rain (or any other delay) result in the number of overs being reduced from those initially scheduled at the time the bet was accepted, then all open (player to score 50) bets will be declared void granted that the reduction is 10% or more of those scheduled. If the reduction is less than 10% of the scheduled overs at the time the bet was accepted, then bets will stand. If a team innings is 10 overs or less, then any reduction in overs will void bets. Should the outcome of such offers be already decided before the interruption and no further play could possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly.

xx. “Player to Score 100/Century/200/Double Century” (Yes/No) betting requires that the player reach the batting crease while a ball is bowled, though not necessarily facing a ball. A player is deemed to have scored 100 or a ‘Century’ once their score is 100 or more runs regardless of whether the player scores a double century or more. Similarly, a player is deemed to have scored 200 or a “Double Century” once their score is 200 or more runs. In cases where a batsman's innings is ended by weather or bad light, all bets where a result has not been determined will be declared void. Should a batsman retire due to injury or any other reason, his score at the end of his team's innings will be considered as the result for that bet. Additionally, for all limited overs matches, should the intervention of rain (or any other delay) result in the number of overs being reduced from those initially scheduled at the time the bet was accepted, then all open (player to score 100/200) bets will be declared void granted that the reduction is 10% or more of those scheduled. If the reduction is less than 10% of the scheduled overs at the time the bet was accepted, then bets will stand. If a team innings is 10 overs or less, then any reduction in overs will void bets. Should the outcome of such offers be already decided before the interruption and no further play would possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly.

(c) Limited Overs Cricket:

i. Should a match be transferred to a ‘reserve’ day, all bets will remain valid as long as the game commences within 48hrs of the original, scheduled start time. 

ii. Match odds (head to head) betting pays on the official result. In the event of a tie, dead heat rules as explained in Clause 1 of the General Cricket Rules will apply unless a subsequent tiebreaker method is used to determine the winner (e.g. super over, bowl-off), in which case the outcome will be settled on the result of this method. Should the match be declared a 'no-result' all bets are void.

iii. If any ‘Super Over’ or tie-breaker is required; any runs, wickets or any other stat that may occur in the super over/tie breaker do not count towards any betting market (except match result) including player bet offers & team totals (e.g. Top batsman/bowler, player runs, total 6’s, to take at least X wickets). This rule does not apply to specific bet offers relating to ‘Super Overs’ (e.g. Super Over Total Runs).

iv. For “Match Handicap / Winning Margin” betting, settlement will depend on whether the winning team bats 1st or 2nd. If the team batting 1st wins, then the runs handicap will be used for settlement. If the team batting 2nd wins then the wickets handicap will be used for settlement. All bets will be declared as void should the number of overs be reduced due to weather (or any other reason) from the standard scheduled number of overs in a Twenty 20 match or any other limited overs match.

v. For “Highest 1st 6/15 Overs” all bets will be declared as void should the number of overs in the match be reduced due to weather (or any other reason) from the scheduled number of overs at the time the bet was accepted (whether standard or already reduced). Should the outcome of such offers be already decided before the interruption and no further play would possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly.

vi. In the event of a tie, if no draw price was offered, dead heat rules as explained in Clause 1 of the General Cricket Rules will apply.

vii. “Highest Total 1st X Overs” bets will be void should the intervention of rain (or any other delay) result in the number of overs in the match being reduced from those initially scheduled at the time the bet was accepted. Should the outcome of such offers be already decided before the interruption and no further play could possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly.

viii. “Highest Opening Partnership” requires that both sides complete their opening partnerships with the exception of those situations where an outcome has already been determined. An opening partnership is considered to have begun once the first ball is bowled in a team innings, and lasts until the fall of 1st wicket or, should no 1st wicket fall, the innings reaching its natural conclusion. In the event of a tie, if no draw price was offered, dead heat rules as explained in Clause 1 of the General Cricket Rules will apply.

ix. Additionally, all (highest opening partnership) bets will be declared as void should the number of overs in the match be reduced due to weather (or any other reason) from the scheduled number of overs at the time the bet was accepted (whether standard or already reduced). Should the outcome of such offers be already decided before the interruption and no further play would possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly.

x. In “Fall of Next Wicket” & “Opening Partnership” (Over/Under) betting, should either batsman retire due to injury or any other reason before a result has been determined all bets placed before the retirement will be declared void; bets taken after the first ball of the new partnership will stand. A result is deemed to have been determined if the partnership total has passed the run total at which the bet was accepted. If a team reaches their target, the total achieved by the batting team will be the result of the market. If a partnership is disrupted due to weather all bets will stand, unless there is no further play in the match. In such case all bets where a result has not been determined will be declared void. 

xi. In relation to the over number at the fall of next wicket, any quoted half refers to the whole over number not the specific balls bowled in each over (e.g. over/under 5.5 refers to either ‘any delivery in over 5 & earlier’ or ‘any delivery in over 6 & later’).

xii. Additionally, all (F.O.W) bets will be declared as void should the number of overs in the match be reduced due to weather (or any other reason) from the scheduled number of overs at the time the bet was accepted (whether standard or already reduced). Should the outcome of such offers be already decided before the interruption and no further play would possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly.

xiii. For “Total Runs – Innings X” (Over/Under) (e.g. Total Team Runs) betting, all bets will be declared as void should the number of overs in the match be reduced due to weather (or any other reason) from the scheduled number of overs at the time the bet was accepted (whether standard or already reduced). Should the outcome of such offers be already decided before the interruption and no further play would possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly. For the avoidance of doubt: Any bets taken after the number of overs has been reduced will stand unless there is a further reduction.

xiv. For “Total Runs – Innings X, Overs X-X” (Over/Under) (e.g. Total Runs – Home Team, Overs 1-15) betting, all bets will be declared as void should the number of overs be reduced due to weather (or any other reason) from the scheduled number of overs in the match at the time the bet was accepted (whether standard or already reduced). Should the outcome of such offers have already been decided before the interruption and no further play would possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly. For the avoidance of doubt: Any bets taken after the number of overs has been reduced will stand unless there is a further reduction.

xv. For “Total 4s/6s/Boundaries/Wickets” (Over/Under) betting, all bets will be declared as void should the number of overs be reduced due to weather (or any other reason) from the scheduled number of overs in the match at the time the bet was accepted (whether standard or already reduced). Should the outcome of such offers have already been decided before the interruption and no further play would possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly.

xvi. Leg-bye and byes that reach/pass the boundary do not count towards total 4s/6s. Overthrows awarded to the batsman do count. Wides that reach the boundary are not counted. No-balls that reach the boundary off the bat and are awarded to the batsman will be counted. 

xvii. For “Most Fours/Sixes/Wides/Run-outs/Boundaries/Ducks/Extras” betting, should the intervention of rain (or any other delay) result in the number of overs being reduced from those initially scheduled at the time the bet was accepted, then all open (Most 'X’) bets will be declared void granted that the reduction is 10% or more of those scheduled. If the reduction is less than 10% of the scheduled overs at the time the bet was accepted, then bets will stand. If a team innings is 10 overs or less, then any reduction in overs will void (most ‘x’) bets. Should the outcome of such offers be already decided before the interruption and no further play would possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly. Leg-bye and byes that reach/pass the boundary do not count towards total 4s/6s.

xviii. In the event of a tie, if no draw price was offered, dead heat rules as explained in Clause 1 of the General Cricket Rules will apply.

xix. For “Total Wides/Run-outs/Ducks/Extras/Stumpings” (Over/Under) betting, all bets will be declared as void should the number of overs be reduced due to weather (or any other reason) from the scheduled number of overs in the match at the time the bet was accepted (whether standard or already reduced). Should the outcome of such offers have already been decided before the interruption and no further play would possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly. For wides and extras, settlement will include the runs scored from wides and not just the number of wides bowled.

xx. For “Highest Individual Score”, all bets will be declared as void should the number of overs in the match be reduced due to weather (or any other reason) from the standard scheduled number of overs in a Twenty 20 match or any other limited overs match. Should the outcome of such offers be already decided before the interruption then these will be settled accordingly.

xxi. For “Team of Top Run Scorer” betting, should the intervention of rain (or any other delay) result in the number of overs being reduced from those initially scheduled at the time the bet was accepted, then all open (team of top run scorer) bets will be declared void granted that the reduction is 10% or more of those scheduled. If the reduction is less than 10% of the scheduled overs at the time the bet was accepted, then bets will stand. If a team innings is 10 overs or less, then any reduction in overs will void bets. Should the outcome of such offers be already decided before the interruption and no further play would possibly change the outcome of such bets, then these will be settled accordingly. In the event of a tie, if no draw price was offered, dead heat rules as explained in Clause 1 of the General Cricket Rules will apply. 

xxii. For “Fifty/Century in Match” (Yes/No) betting, should the intervention of rain (or any other delay) result in the number of overs being reduced from those initially scheduled at the time the bet was accepted, then all open (fifty/century in match) bets will be declared void granted that the reduction is 10% or more of those scheduled. If the reduction is less than 10% of the scheduled overs at the time the bet was accepted, then bets will stand. If a team innings is 10 overs or less, then any reduction in overs will void (Fifty/Century in Match) bets.

ii. For “Match Odds” betting in Test/First Class/3, 4 or 5 day matches, in the event of a tie where both teams have completed two innings each and have scored exactly the same number of runs, bets on “Match Odds” will be void, with stakes being refunded. In Test and First Class Cricket matches, the match winner will be settled as determined by the competition’s official governing body.

iii. For “Draw No Bet” betting, in the event of a draw or tie bets are void & therefore refunded.

iv. For “Double Chance” betting, in the event of a tie where both teams have completed two innings each and have scored exactly the same number of runs, bets will be void & therefore refunded.

vi. “Highest Opening Partnership” bets require that both sides complete their opening partnerships with the exception of those situations where an outcome has already been determined. Unless otherwise stated, highest opening partnership refers to the first innings of each team only. In the event of a tie, if no draw price was offered, dead heat rules as explained in Section (C)(7)(a)(i).

vii. In “Fall of Next Wicket” & “Opening Partnership” (Over/Under) betting, should either batsman retire due to injury or any other reason before a result has been determined all bets will be declared void. A result is deemed to have been determined if the Innings total has passed the run total at which the bet was accepted. If a team declares or reaches their target, the total achieved by the batting team will be the result of the market. If a partnership is disrupted due to weather all bets will stand, unless there is no further play in the match. In such case all bets where a result has not been determined will be declared void. Extras and penalty runs awarded before the fall of wicket or during the partnership, according to the match scorecard, will be counted.

Bets will be voided on players who do not take part in the match or else come on the field of play after the listed goal to which the bet refers to has been scored. Own goals do not count for the settlement of this offer. Should the goal to which the bet refers to be deemed as an own goal, the next player to score a goal which is not an own goal and conforms with the bet offer parameters will be deemed as the winning outcome.

(c) "Scorecast" and “Matchcast” are bet offers where it is possible to bet simultaneously on a particular occurrence (e.g. First Goalscorer) combined with another from the same, or related event (e.g. Correct Score in the match, or match outcome). Should the bet refer to First or Last Goal Scorer, terms and conditions as stated in Section (C)(9)(a) and Section (C)(9)(b) will apply, where applicable. Bets will be voided on players who do not take part in the match at all. In all other instances bets will remain valid, irrespective of the time of inclusion/substitution of the player. Own goals do not count for the settlement of this offer.

(d) Unless otherwise specified, or indicated in conjunction with the bet offer, all bets placed before match start related to whether a specific player(s) will manage to score any number of goals, require the listed player(s) to play from the start of the match to be valid. Similar type of bets placed after the relevant match has started will be settled as void should the listed player(s) not take any further part in the match for whatever reason after bet acceptance. Own goals will never count as a goal scored for any selected player.

(e) On all bets related to yellow/red cards, booking points, etc., only cards shown to players which at that moment are on the pitch are valid for settlement purposes. Cards, disciplinary actions, suspensions, imposed on any other individual which at the moment of the sanction is not, or should not, be actively playing on the pitch, as well as disciplinary measures taken after the game has officially ended, are disregarded.

(f) Unless otherwise specified, or indicated in conjunction with the bet offer, all disciplinary-related bets placed before match start referring to individual(s) (e.g. yellow card, red card, number of fouls), require the listed player(s) to play from the start of the match to be valid. Similar type of bets placed after the relevant match has started will be settled as void should the listed player(s) not take any further part in the match for whatever reason after bet acceptance.

(g) "Booking Points" are calculated according to the following rules: Yellow card = 10 points, Red card = 25 points. Maximum points for one player are 35.

(h) Offers referring to individual player performances in a single match (example: Total Goals Scored by Player X) or confronting performances from 2 individual players during the course of a match (example: Which of Player X or Player Y will score most Goals), require all listed individuals to play from the start of the match for bets to stand.

(i) Offers referring to individual player performances' (example: Total Goals Scored by Player X during the World Cup) or confronting performances from 2 individual players over a particular period/tournament/season (example: Which of Player X or Player Y will score most goals during the league), require that all listed individuals must be an active participant in at least one more fixture applicable for the offer after bet acceptance for bets to stand. 

(j) All bets referring to aggregated Tournament Totals (such as Goals, Corners, Cards, Penalties, etc.) will be settled based on official statistics by the governing body. Unless otherwise stated, cumulative amounts of such bets will include eventual prolongations (e.g. Extra Time) but not Penalty Shoot Outs.

(k) Unless specifically stated, all bets referring to a particular team winning a number/selection of trophies in the same season will be based on the particular team's performance within the following competitions: the domestic league, the apparent equivalent of the respective FA Cup and League Cup as well as the Champions League or Europa League. Other trophies (e.g. domestic and European Super Cup, World Club Cup) do not count.

(l) The "Domestic Double" is to be considered as the team’s victory in the apparent equivalent of the respective domestic league and FA Cup.

(m) For settlement purposes, bets referring to the number of cards shown by the referee will be counted as follows:

· Yellow card = 1

· Red card = 2

· One yellow and a red = 3

· Two yellow cards and a red = 3

The maximum cards for one player is 3 cards. Only cards shown to players currently eligible as per C.14.5 will be taken into consideration.

(n) Bets on whether a particular player(s) will manage to score from certain areas of the pitch (E.g. from outside the 'penalty box') will be settled based on the position of the ball at the time the shot was struck by the player, irrelevant of any further deflections which the ball trajectory might incur following the initial shot. For the sake of clarity, it is to be understood that the lines delineating the 'penalty box' are to be considered as an integral part of such area of the pitch. Thus, should a shot be struck with the ball hovering above, or touching, even partially, said lines, the shot will not be considered as having been outside the box.

(o) Bets on whether a particular player(s) will manage to hit the cross bar, goal post or any other part of the frame delineating the goal area will only be settled as having accomplished such feat if the shot does not result directly in a goal being awarded exactly after the ball hits a part of the goal frame. Settlement will only take into consideration shots aimed at the goal frame defended by the opponents of the listed player(s) team. Should a player have a shot which hits the post their team defends this will not be considered as having accomplished such feat.

(p) During certain events Bally’s might decide to offer for betting a reduced selection of participants (E.g. Any unlisted Team X player) or else a single participant as a representation of the whole squad (E.g. “Any Team X player”). In both cases for settlement purposes, all unlisted squad members are to be deemed as starters (and settled as such), including substitutes, regardless whether they take part in the match or not.

(q) Bets on the performance of players starting the match on the bench will be settled as void if the player is either listed in the starting XI or does not take part in the match at all.

(r) On offers such as Next Goalscorer, Next Carded player, Next Assist and Man of the Match, bets will be voided should the chosen player not take part in the match at all or had no possibility to accomplish such feat during the specified timeframe.

(s) Bets on “Next Assist” for a particular goal will be settled as void should the governing body declare the specified goal as having been unassisted, the specified goal is an own goal and/or no more goals are scored in the match during the specified timeframe. 

(t) Bets referring to penalty kicks conversion and/or outcome will be settled according to the outcome occurred on the field of play as per the rules governing that specific scenario and in cases of penalty shoot-outs will remain valid regardless of the format employed by the governing body during the shoot-out. Bets stand in case the penalty is ordered to be re-taken and will be settled with the outcome achieved from the re-taken penalty.

As a general principle, settlement will be based on the concept that unless the penalty kick results in a goal being awarded (and settled accordingly), the first person/object/location (as applicable) which the ball initially touches after being kicked will be considered as the winning outcome, disregarding any other persons/objects the ball hits in its subsequent trajectory following any previous deflection, if any. The following examples are being issued as a general guideline on settlement:

"Goal" would be the winning outcome in case of the following scored penalties scenarios:

· Any penalty kick which ends up as a goal without it being deflected;

· Goalkeeper touches the penalty kick but ball ends up as goal;

· Penalty kick touches the woodwork before ending up in goal.

"Save" would be the winning outcome in case of the following missed penalties scenarios:

· Goalkeeper deflects the penalty kick to outside the goal frame;

· Goalkeeper deflects the penalty kick onto the post/crossbar.

"Woodwork" would be the winning outcome in case of the following missed penalties scenarios:

· Penalty kick hits the woodwork before it is touched/saved by the goalkeeper;

· Penalty kick hits the woodwork and ball goes outside the goal frame.

"Any other Miss" would be the winning outcome in case of any penalty kick which without any deflection either by the goalkeeper or by the woodwork ends up outside the goal frame:

Exception to the above scenarios would be in in case of penalty shoot-outs, should the ball hit the woodwork, bounce on the goalkeeper and end in goal, such penalty will be considered as having been scored while should said situation occur during any other part of the match which is not a penalty shoot-out, the penalty taker would be considered as having missed to score and "hitting the woodwork" will be considered as the winning outcome.

(u) Any decision taken by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) which conflicts with the original decision sanctioned by the officials on the pitch (including non-decisions like allowing play to continue before reviewing the video), thus altering the understood state of the match at the time of bet placement, will result in all bets placed in the timeframe between the actual occurrence of the original incident and the referee's final decision on the incident being deemed as void, unless the odds offered on the specific bet offer are unaffected by the use of VAR or have already been accounted for in the odds offered at the time of bet acceptance. Settlement on all other unrelated bet-offers, including those determined by any play between the time of the original incident and the decision following the VAR review, which are not influenced/altered by the VAR decision will stand.

For resulting purposes VAR reviews, and the decisions emanating from said reviews, are to be considered as having happened at the time of the original incident for which the VAR would be eventually used even if play has not been immediately interrupted. Bally’s reserves the right, in accordance with Section (A)(10)(a), to reverse any previously settled offers where the settlement becomes inaccurate following the final referee decision, providing said decision is taken and communicated before the conclusion of the match and/or timeframe listed.

In order to avoid any doubts, Bally’s will consider the VAR as having been used if it is understood from the referee's gestures (ex. hand gestures, stopping the match to review the incident themselves), and/or the VAR usage is confirmed by the match report issued by the official organization. In cases where it is unclear whether the VAR has been used due to missing TV coverage and/or conflicting reports, Bally’s will settle the bets based on the information acquired from feed providers and reputable online sources on the basis of equity.

(v) For settlement purposes, markets referring to team to be shown the next Card (booking) and/or “Total Cards” will always consider a Red Card as 2 instances of a card being shown and will be settled accordingly. The following examples are being listed as a guideline:

• First card shown in a match is a straight Red Card. The team to which the card is awarded will be settled as the winning selection for the offers: Cards #1 and #2;

• First card shown in a match is a Yellow Card followed by a straight Red Card to the same player without a second yellow card being shown. The team to which the cards are awarded will be settled as the winning selection for the offers: Cards #1, #2 and #3;

• First card shown in a match is a Yellow Card followed by a second Yellow Card with the subsequent Red Card to the same player. The team to which the cards are awarded will be settled as the winning selection for the offers: Cards #1, #2 and #3.

(w) Markets referring to which specific player will be the next to be booked/receive a card are to be understood and settled as per the order of the instance in which each single player gets booked/sent off by the referee. The card colour shown by the referee will not be given any consideration in the settlement of this offer and the decisive criteria will always be the order in which the single player is considered to have gone into the referee’s book. For settlement purposes it is possible for a single player to be listed twice as the “Next Carded player” as much as both bookings occur during different interruptions of play. Should 2 or more players be booked during the same interruption of play, bets on this offer will be settled as void.

(x) Any reference to “Free Kicks” both when presented as a single outcome, as well as an occurrence will also take into consideration instances awarded for offsides and any other violation except those sanctioned with a penalty.

(y) Offers referring to specific player(s) playing the whole match require the specified player(s) to start the match for bets to stand. For settlement purposes, bets will be settled as YES only if the specified player(s) is/are neither substituted nor sent off during Regular Time only. Eventual extra time does not count.

Should the format of a tournament be changed so that it features less rounds/holes than originally scheduled, all bets accepted on such offers after the last shot of the last completed round will be declared void.

(j) Settlement of "Head to Head" bet offers involving the performance of two or more players (e.g. Best Finishing Position in the tournament) will be based upon the best finishing position/lowest score (as applicable) achieved in the relative event/round which the bet refers to. 

(k) Any reference to Make/Miss the "Cut" requires an official cut/exclusion effected by the organisers for bets to stand. In the case of tournaments where players are eliminated during more than one phase, settlement will be based on a whether the player has qualified or not following the first "Cut" made.

(l) Disqualification/withdrawals by a player before the "Cut" is made, will result in the player being considered as having missed the "Cut". Disqualification/withdrawals subsequent to the "Cut" being made will be irrelevant towards the original settlement of the "Make the Cut" offers.

(m) In "Head to Heads" based on the best finishing position in the tournament, in case one player misses the cut then the other player will be settled as the winner. If both participants fail to make the "Cut" the player with the lowest score at the "Cut" will be considered as the winner. Should both players fail to make the "Cut" with the same score then the bet will be void. A player disqualified after the "Cut" has been made is deemed to have beaten a player who has failed to make the "Cut".

(b) Unless specifically stated in this section, the rules present in Bally’s Additional Sports Wagering Rules apply. In the event of ambiguity, priority will be set in the following order: 

i.Rules and conditions published in conjunction with an offer and/or campaign; 

ii.eSports Game-specific rules (if applicable); 

iii.eSports Genre-specific rules; 

iv.eSports General Result Settlement rules; 

v.Bally’s Additional Sports Wagering Rules. 

(c) Should none of the above provide an adequate resolution, Bally’s reserves the right, according to its own discretion, to settle offers on an individual basis on the basis of equity, attaining itself to generally accepted betting norms, customs and definitions. 

a. E-SPORTS GENERAL SETTLEMENT RULES

(1) When settling results Bally’s will do its utmost to attain itself to information obtained first hand (during or exactly after the event has been concluded) from the organizing association through the game broadcast and any relevant counters it might display, the game API and the official website. Should this information be conflictual, disputed and or omitted from first hand viewing as well as official sources and/or there is an Obvious Error in the information included in the sources above, the settlement of the bet offer will be based on other public sources. 

(2) Settlement of bets will not include any changes deriving from and/or attributable to, but not limited to: disqualifications, penalisations, protests, sub-judice results and/or successive changes to the official result after the event has been completed and a result has been announced, even preliminarily. For bets referring to competitions which span over more than 1 round/stage (E.g.: Tournament Bets), only amendments effecting bets which settlement has not been decided yet will be taken into consideration. The following example is being provided as a general guideline of how such bets would be treated in case of comparable situations: A bet on a team to reach the semi-finals of a tournament will be considered as having been attained once the organizing association deems it as such, even if the same team is disqualified from the tournament at a later stage for any reason whatsoever. 

(3) Whilst all systematic precautions have been put in place in order to represent the most accurate rendition of the event as scheduled by the governing association, any reference to the order in which the participants are shown, venues, etc., is to be deemed for information purposes only. Switching of home/away participants as well as previously announced venues, will not be deemed as valid grounds for cancellation of bets placed. 

(4) Before or during an event/match, Bally’s may decide to show current and past scores, counters and other statistics related to the offer. It is to be understood that Bally’s provides such data for information purposes only and does not acknowledge or accept any liability whatsoever for the accuracy of such data. All data presented in this regard must be treated as unofficial and any inaccuracy will not be deemed as valid grounds for the cancellation of bets placed.  

(5) Should the name of any participant/event/game be misspelled and/or has changed, bets will remain valid granted that it is reasonably clear and can be ascertained through reputable sources, that the object that the bet has been placed upon, is the same as the participant/event/game intended. 

(6) The deadline (cut-off time) shown on the website is to be treated for information purposes only. Bally’s reserves the right, at its own discretion, to suspend, partially or completely, the betting activity at any time where it deems necessary.  

(7) Bally’s reserves the right, solely at its own discretion, to void bets should any of the following situations arise: 

i.Bally’s experience lags in receiving data/image streams from any of its sources/providers resulting in Bally’s presenting odds not reflecting the current state of the bet; 

ii.it is reasonably obvious that bets have been placed from accounts which have access to data/image streams not available at that time to Bally’s; 

iii.bets have been placed after any participant has gained an advantage enough to alter the odds of any offer, even just theoretically, without said odds having been adjusted to reflect the current state of the bet. 

(8) Should a match start at a different time than that listed on the website this will not be deemed as valid grounds for cancellation of the bets, granted that the exact same match is the next match taking place for both teams within the same tournament and is valid for the round/stage initially intended for. 

(9) Unless specifically stated, if the organizing association includes any necessary extra rounds/overtime, qualifying match/es or series of matches in order to determine any classification and/or match outcome, Bally’s will take into account the results and outcomes deriving from the added matches/rounds/overtime for settlement purposes of bets referring to said match/classification. 

(10)All bet offers related to matches, or parts thereof, which do not take place at all or are awarded a result through a walk-over decision will be declared void. For settlement purposes action within a match (or part thereof) is considered to have occurred as to either when the game clock has started or whenever a participant performs an in-game action related to the match (or part thereof), whichever happens first. 

(11)Offers related to matches/or parts thereof which get abandoned for whatever reason and no result is declared by the official organization within 36 hours from the actual match start, will have the stakes refunded on those bet offers whose result has not yet been determined. All bet offers that have been decided prior to the abandonment and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, will be settled according to the decided outcome. 

(12)For all Match odds, Series Outcome and Team to go Through offers, the first official decision on the outcome of the offer issued by the governing association within 36 hours of match completion/abandonment will be the deciding factor for the settlement of bets, including but not limited to any decisions involving disqualifications, withdrawals, concessions, etc., which will be taken into account for settlement purposes. In cases where the offer ends in a drawn outcome, with said outcome not having been available as a possible outcome for betting purposes, stakes will be refunded. 

(13)Should it be decided that an abandoned fixture (or part thereof) is to be continued from the within 36 hours of the original start time, all bets placed on the initial match will stand and will be settled through the outcomes deriving from the continued play. 

(14)Should it be decided that an abandoned fixture (or part thereof) is restarted from the beginning within 36 hours of the original start time, all bets placed on the initial match which could not be settled through the outcomes deriving from the play prior to abandonment, will be declared void. 

(15)Should it be the case that either participant is involved in a match from the same tournament with a different opponent between the time of the abandonment and the continuation of the initial match, all pending bets on the initial match, will be settled as void regardless of the outcomes obtained during the continuation of the match. 

(16)Offers referring to Tournament outcomes and or matches/events scheduled over a 2 or more days-span, will remain valid granted that said event is considered completed and an official result is announced by the official organization within the specified year, regardless of the current/future participation (or lack thereof) of any listed and/or previously announced participant, unless otherwise stated. 

(17)In cases of matches which have not been completed before their natural conclusion, and when a result is issued through a decision by the association not more than 36 hours from the actual event’s start without play having continued following the abandonment, Bally’s will use the issued decision as the official result for the offers detailing the outcome of the match and/or tournament progress (E.g. Match odds and Participant to reach next round) granted that the issued decision does not change the outcome of the said bet offers at the time of the abandonment. In that case the stakes will be refunded. (E.g. Team A leading 2 Maps to nil in a best of 5 Maps match and Team B concedes: Association declares Team A as winner of the match = bet stands. Meanwhile if the same best of 5 Maps match was abandoned with the score 1-1 and the Association declares either team as the winner, the bet will be considered as void).  All other offers will be declared void except for those the outcomes of which have been decided prior to the abandonment and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, which will be settled according to the decided outcome. 

(18)Settlement of bet offers linked to counters (E.g. Total Kills) and any other offers related to specific terminology will be decided according to the definition with which the official governing body issues said statistics. Unless backed by un-contradictory evidence, Bally’s will not acknowledge any complaints which derive from a personal interpretation of such terms. 

(19) When placing "Outright" or "Place" bets, stakes will be refunded on participants/outcomes that are not participating or withdraw from an event prior to the beginning of the entire event (including qualifying events), unless otherwise stated. Bally’s reserves the right, at its own discretion, to apply Tattersalls Rule 4, as explained in Section II(B)(6), on any competition and this will be stated in correlation to the bet offer and/or the relevant Sport-specific rule (available upon request). 

(20)Offers referring to a single participant’s performance in a specific event/timeframe (such as Tournament Progress of Team X) require the listed participant to play an active part at least once in a subsequent stage of the applicable event/timeframe after the bet has been placed and/or accepted. 

(21)No refunds of bets will apply, even if the winning outcome of a match/event is a participant/outcome that has not been listed for betting purposes. On all bet offers, the Account Holder has the possibility to ask for a price on a non-listed participant/outcome. Bally’s reserves the right, at its own discretion, to decline such requests. 

(22)Offers which confront against each other the performances of two or more participants over a specified timeframe/competition will only be settled based on the result of the listed participants, disregarding all other participants in the same competition/event. 

(23)In case a participant is disqualified/withheld/banned from taking part in a subsequent part/phase of an event/competition for any reason whatsoever, as well as in case of voluntary withdrawals, the disqualification will be considered to have taken place at the time of the official announcement. No alterations will be made to previous results, regardless of any modifications due to said actions. 

(24)In an "Outright" or "Place" bet, should two or more participants be considered to have obtained the same result and the organizing association does not distinguish in their classification the “Dead Heat rule” as specified in Bally’s Additional Sports Wagering Rules Section II(B)(5)(n) applies. 

(25)Bally’s will refund stakes on offers comparing the achievements/performances of two participants within a specified timeframe (E.g. Tournament Best Finishing Position, Match Winner, Winner of Map X] should any of the following circumstances apply: 

i.No odds were offered on a ‘draw’ outcome and no tie-breaking procedures/overtime/extra rounds are used by the organizing association to result a match/offer or classify participants that obtained the same result; 

ii.Any of the listed participants does not play any further part in any subsequent stage of the related event/part thereof after the bet has been placed and/or accepted; 

iii.None of the listed participants is included in the applicable classification; 

iv.None of the listed participants is deemed to have achieved the specified requirement after the bet has been placed and/or accepted and no odds for such outcome has been offered. 

(26)Offers comparing the achievements/performances of three participants will be treated as detailed in above clause, with the exception that should two or more participants share the applicable finishing position the “Dead Heat rule” as specified in Bally’s Additional Sports Wagering Rules, Section II(B)(5)(n) applies. 

(27)“Outright” and “Place” bets rules apply on offers comparing the achievements/performances of four or more participants, with the exception of those offers specifically listed as “Group Betting”. In such cases, stakes will be refunded should at least one of the listed participants not be actively involved anymore for whatever reason after the bet has been placed and/or accepted. 

(28)Unless the outcome of the offer has already been determined before any change is announced, bets referring to a race to a particular happening/totals of a particular occurrence (E.g. First participant to win X rounds, Over/Under Maps played) or the margins/difference of completed occurrence between participants (E.g. Map Handicap, Exact Map score in the match) will be settled as void in case the match format is completely changed in a way that would alter the counter of such occurrences and their respective odds, including but not limited to cases where the number of scheduled Maps is changed from a previously announced odd number of scheduled Maps (E.g. Best of 1/3/5) to an even number of scheduled Maps (E.g. Best of 2/4/6) and vice-versa. Bets will stand and will be settled accordingly for those offers where the announced changed is not relevant (E.g. Match odds will remain valid if the number of scheduled Maps is changed from the previously announced 3 Maps to 5 Maps), or the outcome of the offer has already been determined before any change is announced. The following example is being provided as a general guideline of how such bets would be treated in case of comparable situations: A bet on “To win 1st Map” will remain valid if a match is changed from 3 to 5 Maps but an Over/Under bet on Total Maps in the Match would be settled as void in a similar scenario. 

(29)Should Bally’s erroneously offer odds and lines based on a different number of Maps/Games/Rounds from the correctly scheduled number of said instances, settlement of offers referring to a race to a particular happening/totals of a particular occurrence (E.g. First participant to win X rounds, Over/Under Maps played) or the margins/difference of completed occurrence between participants (E.g. Map Handicap, Exact Map score in the match) will be settled as void in case the match format is completely different in a way that would alter the counter of such occurrences and their respective odds, including but not limited to cases where the number of scheduled Maps is calculated on an odd number of scheduled Maps (E.g. Best of 1/3/5) when the match is scheduled for an even number of Maps (E.g. Best of 2/4/6) and vice-versa. Bets will stand and will be settled accordingly for those offers where the discrepancy is not relevant (E.g. Match odds will remain valid if the number of scheduled Maps quoted is 3 instead of the stipulated 5 Maps), or the outcome of the offer has already been determined before any change is announced. The following example is being provided as a general guideline of how such bets would be treated in case of comparable situations: A bet on “To win 1st Map” will remain valid if a match is listed as 3 instead of 5 Maps but an Over/Under bet on Total Maps in the Match would be settled as void in a similar scenario. 

(30)During specific events Bally’s might decide, solely at its own discretion, to offer for betting purposes a reduced selection of participants which could include betting options such as "Any Other", "The Field", or similar. This option includes all unlisted participants except for the ones mentioned specifically as available. Bally’s reserves the right to list/specify more participants at a later stage. Should these newly listed participants be the winning outcome, they will be considered as having been unlisted until the time they have actually been introduced to the list and settled accordingly. 

(31)Offers that make a specific reference to a participant’s performance in a particular event/timeframe (e.g. Team X vs The Field or Winner without Team X) are to be considered void if the mentioned participants fail to play an active part at least once in a subsequent stage of the applicable event/timeframe after the bet has been placed and/or accepted. 

(32)Should a match start with a different number of players than that encompassed in the event regulations (E.g.: Either team starts a match with only 4 players instead of the scheduled 5 players), all bets will be determined as void. In case either team loses momentarily and/or permanently from the match any number of players, after the match has started with the stipulated number of participants as per the event regulation, bets will remain valid. 

(33)Bets on matches/events featuring participants which use a different/wrong nickname or using a so-called “smurf account” will stand, granted that it does not become reasonably obvious that the participant using that particular nickname is not the one intended. In such cases bets will be settled as void. 

(34)Bets on a team are to be considered valid regardless of the individuals used by said team as participants. Should the organizing association deem it permissible for a team to play with a stand-in participant or replacement player, all bets will stand granted that an official result is issued. 

(35)Any form of a qualification ahead of the main tournament (where applicable) is considered to be a valid part of that competition. Thus any participant who is eliminated at qualification stage will be considered losing to anyone that is pre-qualified or is successful in the qualification stage. 

(36)In the case of bets where there is reference to timeframes, they should be interpreted in the following way: “within the first 30 minutes” will include anything happening until 0 hours 29 minutes and 59 seconds; “between 10 to 20 minutes” will include anything happening from 10 minutes and 0 seconds until 19 minutes and 59 seconds. 

(37)Any bets referring to duration represent the actual time passed in the map/round/event, as applicable. For example, a bet on Over 30.5 minutes in a Map will be settled as Over once 30 minutes and a half in the specified map have passed.  

(38)Any reference to “Winner” and/or “Upper” bracket will remain valid regardless of whether Maps and/or any other advantages are awarded via the event rules to any participant. 

(39)Advantages awarded via event structure will be considered for settlement purposes, unless otherwise specified. Nonetheless, any reference to specific indexes of Maps, Games, etc. as presented on site is always to be considered as relevant to the phase of the match being actually played. Example: in a best of 3 Maps match where Team A starts with a 1 Map advantage, any Map 1 related offers will actually refer to the outcomes emanating from the second Map of the match, i.e.. the first Map to be actually played.

b. FPS (FIRST PERSON SHOOTER)

The following rules apply to any games which are categorized as being of an FPS (First Person Shooter) genre. These include, but are not limited to Call of Duty, CS:GO, Overwatch, Quake, Valorant and Rainbow Six.

Should the match be abandoned before its natural completion, (regardless of any eventual decision by the governing association), bets will be settled as void, unless the Over/Under or Round Handicap line upon which the bet has been placed, has already been surpassed at the time of the match abandonment. In that case, bets will be settled according to the outcomes obtained prior to the match abandonment.  

· For CS:GO Total Rounds, Any Map awarded via the event rules to participants originating from the so-called “Winners” bracket will be considered as “0” (zero) rounds for settlement purposes.

(1) For Match Odds and Games Handicap, should any Game be replayed due to a draw, the result from the initial Game will be discarded and the result from the replayed Game will count for settlement purposes. For Total Games, any game which is replayed due to a draw will count as 1 game only. 

(2) For Total Games and Games Handicap, the first scheduled Game must start for bets to stand, with the exception of any Games awarded via the event rules to participants originating from the so-called “Winners” bracket. In such cases, said Games will be taken into consideration for settlement purposes. All scheduled Games must be completed for bets to stand. In case the match is abandoned before its natural completion and regardless of any eventual decision by the governing association, bets will be settled as void unless the Over/Under line upon which the bet has been placed has been surpassed already at the time of the match abandonment. Should that be the case, bets will be settled according to the outcomes obtained until the time of the match abandonment. 

(3) In Game X, the listed Game must be completed for bets to stand. 

h. FIFA

Should a game be drawn, with no odds having been offered on the draw, then stakes will be refunded.

(2) For Team to go Through offers, should Extra Time be required, to decide the offer, (unless otherwise stated within the offer), the outcomes deriving from the added play will be included for settlement purposes. 

(3) For Correct Score offers, results will be settled based on the outcomes achieved during Regular Time. Unless otherwise stated within the offer, outcomes obtained during Extra Time will not be considered settlement purposes. 

(4) For Total Goal offers, all parts of the match to which the offer refers to must be completed for bets to stand unless the outcome has already been determined before the interruption of play and any further continuation of play could not possibly produce a different outcome.

For settlement purposes, and unless otherwise specified, points scored during Overtime will be considered for settlement purposes of markets related to Full Time. All parts of the match to which the offer refers to must be completed for bets to stand unless the outcome has already been determined before the interruption of play and further continuation of play could not possibly produce a different outcome. 

(3) For Handicap offers, results will be settled based on the outcome achieved once the listed handicap/spread is added/subtracted (as applicable) to the match/period/total score to which the bet refers to. In those circumstances where the result after the adjustment of the handicap/spread line is exactly equal to the betting line, then all bets on this offer will be declared void.

All parts of the match to which the offer refers to must be completed for bets to stand. 

(4) For Partial, intervals, First/Next to X offers, Bets on specific timeframes/intervals (example: Quarter/Half X result, match result between minute X and minute Y or “Rest of the Match “odds), will consider only outcomes and occurrences accumulated during the specified timeframe/interval, as applicable. Settlement will not take into account any other occurrences tallied from other parts of the event/match outside the specified timeframe/interval, unless specified. Bets on offers referring to a specific score in the match (example: Next team to score or Race to X points), refer to the participants scoring/reaching first the listed objective. Should the offer list a timeframe (or any other period restriction) settlement will not consider any occurrences from other parts of the event/match which are not related to the mentioned timeframe. Should the listed score not be reached/scored within the stipulated timeframe (if any) by neither of the participants, all bets will be declared void, unless a draw/tie outcome has been made offered for betting. All parts of the match to which the offer refers to must be completed for bets to stand unless the outcome has already been determined before the interruption of play and any further continuation of play could not possibly produce a different outcome.
