RULES AND REGULATIONS

Sportsbook Rules

Part A - Introduction

  1. Use and interpretation

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

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

    The Sportsbook Rules consist of the following:

    • This Introduction section (Part A);
    • The General Rules (set out in Part B below); and
    • The Specific Sports Rules (set out in Part C below â€" these apply to certain sports and to financial markets).

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

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

  2. Customer responsibility

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

  3. Customer betting disputes & ibas (Independent Betting Adjudication Service)

    Any Betfair customer who has any concerns or questions regarding the Betfair rules or regarding the settlement of any Betfair market should refer to our Dispute Resolution policy.

PART B — General Rules

  1. In-play betting

    1. 1.1General

      • For everything other than horseracing and greyhound racing, if a market is not scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at the relevant time, then:
        • if the event has a scheduled 'off' time, all bets matched after that scheduled off time will be void; and
        • if the event does not have a scheduled 'off' time, Betfair will use its reasonable endeavours to ascertain the time of the actual 'off' and all bets after the time of the 'off' determined by Betfair will be void.
      • For horseracing and greyhound racing, if a market is not scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at the relevant time, then all bets matched after the official 'off' time will be void.
      • Betfair aims to use its reasonable endeavours to suspend in-play markets at the start of and at the end of the event. However, Betfair does not guarantee that such markets will be suspended at the relevant time.
      • Betfair reserves the right at its absolute discretion to part-suspend or fully suspend outcomes/selections in a Sportsbook or Fixed Odds market that has been turned in-play.
      • Betfair customers are responsible for managing their in-play bets at all times.
      • The availability of an in-play market on our Exchange product for a particular event does not necessarily mean that there will be an equivalent in-play market for the same event on our Sportsbook or Fixed Odds product.
      • For the purposes of in-play betting, customers should be aware that transmissions described as "live" by some broadcasters may actually be delayed or pre-recorded. The extent of any delay may vary depending on the set-up through which they are receiving pictures or data. Please also be aware that, for operational reasons, bet requests made in-play may take slightly longer to process.
      • If Betfair accepts a bet on a market for which the outcome has already been determined, then that bet shall be deemed void (and no winnings shall be payable in respect of it).
    2. 1.2All markets other than football markets — not suspending at the time of the "off"

      • In relation to markets which are scheduled to be turned in-play, Betfair aims to use its reasonable endeavours to turn such markets in-play at the time of the 'off'. However, Betfair does not guarantee that such markets will be suspended and turned in-play at the time of the 'off'.
      • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at the time of the 'off' and the market is not turned in-play at any time during the event, all bets after the scheduled time of the 'off' will be void (in the case of horseracing and greyhound racing, bets will be void from the official rather than the scheduled 'off' time) UNLESS it can be established that the bet was placed before the official off time or the actual time of the off. If the event does not have a scheduled 'off' time, Betfair will use its reasonable endeavours to ascertain the time of the actual 'off' and all bets after the time of the 'off' determined by Betfair will be void.
      • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at the time of the 'off', but the market is turned in-play at a later time during the event, all bets after the time of the 'off' will stand. HOWEVER the price may be adjusted by Betfair and the bets may be settled in accordance with the correct price at the time on which the relevant bet was placed (such price to be determined by Betfair, acting reasonably).
    3. 1.3Football markets — not suspending at kick-off

      • In relation to soccer markets that are scheduled to be turned in-play, Betfair aims to use its reasonable endeavours to turn such markets in-play at kick-off and to suspend such markets on the occurrence of a Material Event (see definition of "Material Event" below). However, Betfair does not guarantee that markets will be suspended and turned in-play at kick-off.
      • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at kick-off and the market is not turned in-play at any time during the match, all bets matched after the scheduled time of the kick-off will be void UNLESS it can be established that the bet was actually placed before the actual time of kick-off.
      • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at kick-off, but the market is turned in-play at a later time during the match, all bets matched after the scheduled time of the kick-off will stand. HOWEVER the price may be adjusted by Betfair and the bets may be settled in accordance with the correct price at the time on which the relevant bet was placed (such price to be determined by Betfair, acting reasonably).
      • For the purpose of this rule, a "Material Event" shall mean a goal being scored, a penalty being awarded or a player being sent off.
  2. Results and market settlement

    1. 2.1General

      • Where the Specific Sports Rules do not specify how and on what basis a market will be settled, markets will be settled on the official result of the relevant governing body regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result (except if an amendment is announced within 24 hours of the initial settlement of the relevant market in order to correct an error in reporting the result).
      • If no official result of a relevant governing body is available, the result will be determined by Betfair (acting reasonably) using information from independent sources. In such cases, if any new information comes into the public domain within 48 hours of settlement, then Betfair shall (acting reasonably) determine either:
        1. whether the market should be reinstated or resettled in light of this new information; or
        2. whether or not to wait for further information before deciding whether to reinstate or resettle the market. Except where Betfair has announced that it is waiting for further information, any information that comes into the public domain more than 48 hours after a market has been settled shall not be considered by Betfair (regardless of whether or not such information may have led to a different result).
      • In the event of any uncertainty about any result or potential result, Betfair reserves the right to suspend settlement of any market for an unlimited period until the uncertainty can be resolved to the reasonable satisfaction of Betfair. Betfair reserves the right to void any market if the uncertainty regarding settlement cannot be resolved to Betfair's reasonable satisfaction.
    2. 2.2Resettlements

      • Markets are generally settled shortly after the end of the event in question. Betfair may settle (or part-settle) some markets before the official result is declared (or may increase a customer's "˜available to bet" balance by the minimum potential winnings of that customer on a given market) purely as a customer service benefit. However, Betfair reserves the right to amend the settlement of the market if:
        1. the official result is different to the result on which Betfair initially settled the market (for example, a horseracing result being changed by the relevant governing body shortly after a race); or
        2. if the whole market is eventually voided (e.g. for an abandoned event).
      • Betfair reserves the right to reverse the settlement of a market if a market is settled in error (for example, a human or technical error).
      • If Betfair resettles a market, this may lead to amendments being made to a customer's balance to reflect changes in market settlement.
    3. 2.3Non-runners

      • Unless stated otherwise, sports bets are accepted on a "non-runner, no bet" basis (unless stated otherwise). This means that stakes will be refunded on a player, team or other competitor that is withdrawn prior to the start of an event. If you have placed a bet on a sporting event run on a "non-runner, no bet" basis and a player, team or other competitor (on which you did not place your bet) is withdrawn, suspended or disqualified from that event, we may apply the equivalent to Tattersalls' Rule 4(c) to your winnings (based on the price of the player, team or other competitor that is withdrawn).
      • Where specified, certain markets will be offered on an "all-in compete or not" basis. This means that, if a player, team or other competitor is withdrawn from an event (whether he, she or it pulls out of the event, is suspended or disqualified from it or otherwise) before he, she or it has taken part in the event, then any bet placed on that player, team or competitor (as applicable) will be deemed a losing bet.
      • If an event is specified as "fixed draw" and a team, player or other competitor is withdrawn, suspended or disqualified from that event, we reserve the right to settle any bets on the subsequent prices once the market has been revised without the withdrawn team/player.
      • If a player, team or other competitor has taken any part in a sporting event once it has officially started and then fails to complete that event for any reason, any bet placed on that player, team or other competitor will be deemed live (i.e. bets on that player, team or other competitor will not be voided).
    4. 2.4Selections Not Offered

      • Betfair endeavours to keep its markets updated at all times (such that potential winning selections for each market are always offered). However, should the team/individual/participant which ultimately wins be unavailable for any reason, bets on other selections in the applicable market will stand (and will be settled in accordance with these, and any other applicable, settlement rules).
  3. Abandonments, cancellations, postponements

      • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, where a market has no rules in the Specific Sports Rules in relation to an abandonment, cancellation and/or postponement the following shall apply.
      • In relation to any match, fixture, game, individual event, race or similar: If the event is not completed within three days after the scheduled completion date, then all bets on markets for this event will be void, except for bets on any markets that have been unconditionally determined.
      • In relation to any tournament, competition or similar: If the event is not completed within 24 hours following the scheduled completion date of the event, then any markets relating to the event will be settled in accordance with the official ruling of the relevant governing body, providing such a decision is given within 90 days after the scheduled completion date. If no official ruling is announced in this 90 day period, then bets on any market relating to this event will be void, except for bets on any markets which have been unconditionally determined. If a market is to be voided but has been part-settled as a courtesy to Betfair customers, then such part-settled bets will be reversed and all bets on the market will be void.
      • If there is no further sporting action in any market that does not contain the selection ˜"draw" or ˜"tie", all bets placed after this conclusion of action will be voided.
      • Betfair will decide (acting reasonably) whether a market relates to a match (or similar) or a tournament (or similar). However, by way of example, the following shall apply:
        1. Europa League outright = tournament;
        2. Champions League Group outright = tournament;
        3. Top Premiership goalscorer = tournament;
        4. 72-hole Golf Match bet = match;
        5. Ryder Cup outright = tournament;
        6. Golf tournament outright = tournament;
        7. Tennis Tournament outright = tournament;
        8. 5-day Cricket Test Match = match;
        9. Ashes Series outright winner = tournament;
        10. Motor Race (e.g. Grand Prix) = match.
  4. Change of venue

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if change of venue is not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules then the following shall apply:
    • For any team sport: if the scheduled venue is changed after a bet is placed, all bets will be void only if the new venue is a home ground of the original away team (or in the case of international matches, only if the venue changes to a venue in a different country).
    • For all categories or markets other than team sports: if the scheduled venue is changed after a bet is placed, all bets will stand.
    • If there is a change in the type of scheduled surface (e.g. a hockey match switching from grass to astro-turf) after a bet is placed, all bets will stand.
  5. Periods of time

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules then the following shall apply.
    • If the scheduled duration of an event is changed after a bet is placed but before the start of the event, then all bets will be void.
    • Some markets refer to the length of time until an occurrence in the event (e.g. time of first goal). If an event happens in stoppage or injury time after any regular time period then it will be deemed to have occurred at the end of the regular time period. For example, if a goal is scored in first half stoppage-time in a soccer match it will be deemed to have occurred on 45 minutes.
    • All bets apply to the relevant full "regular time" period including stoppage time. Any extra-time and/or penalty shoot-out is not included.
    • References within these Rules and Regulations to a particular number of "days" shall mean the end of the day local time after the expiry of the specified number of days. For example, if a rugby match is scheduled for the 1st of December, then the rule that allows the match to be completed within three days after the scheduled completion date (see Paragraph 3 above) would mean that the deadline for completion of that match would be 23.59:59 on the 4th of December.
  6. "To qualify" markets

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules then the following shall apply.
    • Any 'to qualify' market (e.g. "to reach the final" markets) will be determined by the competitor or team that progresses, whether or not they take part in the next round or event for which they have qualified. Markets will be settled after the qualifying stage and any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result will not count.
  7. Dead heats

    • Unless stated otherwise in the Specific Sports Rules the Dead Heat Rule applies to bets on a market where there are more winners than expected.
    • Dead heat is a term that describes when two or more selections in an event tie. If a "dead-heat" between two selections is declared on any event, half the stake is applied to the selection at full odds and the other half is lost. If more than two "dead-heats" are declared, the stake is proportioned accordingly.
  8. Errors

    • Betfair makes every effort to ensure that it does not make any errors when accepting bets. However, if as a result of technical or system problems or human error, a bet is accepted that is at odds (which includes handicap provisions or similar) and/or is on terms that are either:
      1. materially different from those available in the general betting market at the time the bet was made; or
      2. clearly incorrect given the chance of the event occurring at the time the bet was made including, in either case, because the bet was placed after the start of an event, because the market was not displaying or reflecting in-play status, or because of any other reason, then all bets will stand HOWEVER Betfair will settle winning bets at the ‘correct price’.
    • o In the event "each way" is offered in a market when the pricing of the market clearly indicates that it should not have been, Betfair reserves the right to settle this bet as "win only". Should the selection be part of an Each Way multiple, the entire multiple will be settled "win only".
    • The "correct price" will be determined by Betfair (acting reasonably).
  9. Handicap markets

    • Unless stated otherwise in any rules relating to specific sports, handicap markets are determined by adjusting the score of the selected team by the applicable handicap which is offered in respect of that team. For example, if Team A + 10 is selected, 10 points will, for settlement purposes, be added to the score of Team A. Where the draw is selected in a handicap market, the relevant bet will be determined by adjusting the home team’s score by the applicable handicap (for example, if draw - 6 is offered, 6 points will, for settlement purposes, be deducted from the home team’s final score and if, following such deduction, both teams’ scores are the same, the bet will be deemed to have been successful).
    • Where a blatant error is made in handicap set up i.e. handicap reads as - instead of + and vice versa, on any of our events, either in Live Betting or before the start, - we reserve the right to settle bets at the correct handicap at the time at which the bet was placed.
    • Where only handicap betting is available, the bet will be settled as a handicap bet whether selected or not.
  10. Maximum winnings

    • For all events listed below, the maximum payout limits apply on a per day basis. If you place a bet that exceeds the applicable limits for a particular event, the relevant maximum payouts will still apply.
    • The maximum payout limits refer to the total returns on your bets.
    • The maximum payout limits apply to any one customer or group of customers acting together, backing the same combination of selections, regardless of whether or not such bets are struck separately, at a range of different prices, on different days and through a number of different accounts. If Betfair believes that a number of bets have been placed in this way, the total payment of all those bets combined will be limited to one single maximum payout.
    • The maximum payouts shown below are shown in sterling. If bets are placed in another currency, the maximum payout will be converted using the applicable exchange rate on the day of settlement of the bets, save for Euros where the maximum payout will be the same as the amount stated in sterling. The maximum payout for "Best Odds Guaranteed" is £1,000 per day.
    • The following maximum payout limits will apply to the events shown (please note, if a multiple bet has been placed which involves events with different maximum payout limits, the lowest applicable maximum payout limit will apply to the whole of your multiple bet - for example, if you place a multiple bet on English Premier League football matches and on a golf tournament, your winnings will be capped at £100,000 and not £1,000,000):

If you place winning bets on those products that exceed this daily limit, your winnings will be reduced to £1,000,000 and the remainder of your winnings in excess of £1,000,000 will be forfeited by you.
  11. Multiples

    • Betfair currently offers two types of multiple bet: "˜Fixed Odds Multiples" and 'Same Game Multiples'. These Sportsbook Rules only apply to Betfair’s ‘Fixed Odds Multiples’.
    • A multiple bet consists of a number of legs. A leg is defined as one or more chosen selection in any individual event market.
    • Betfair reserves the right in its sole discretion not to accept certain multiple bets or to scale back stakes.
    • All multiple bets placed are subject to the Sportsbook Rules that apply to each individual sport that relates to any leg of any multiple bet.
    • If any selection in any leg is a non-runner or otherwise void under the Sportsbook Rules (e.g. an abandoned match) then all bets on that individual leg will be void and the Fixed Odds Multiple bet shall be adjusted accordingly. For example a treble including one void leg will become a double. If that voided legs mean that an individual bet within a multiple becomes a single bet, then this single bet will stand.
    • Multiple bets combining different selections within the same event are not accepted when there are related contingencies (i.e. where the outcome of one event is likely to affect the odds on the outcome of another event) except where those selections are chosen as part of a Same Game Multiple. The rejection of related contingency bets may happen automatically at the bet placement stage. However, if such a bet is taken in error, Betfair may settle the individual bet combinations which include two or more of the related contingency selections, as single bets.
    • Each-way and win-only markets cannot be combined as part of a multiple bet. Should Betfair accept a multiple bet of this type in error, all each-way bets which are included within the multiple will be classed as win-only bets for settlement purposes.
    • ‘Lucky 15/31/63’ bet types - this multiple bet includes singles and upwards on 4, 5 or 6 selections respectively. The following bullet-points set out the number of bets that each Lucky bet type contains:
      • Lucky 15 (4 selections) comprises: 4 Singles, 6 Doubles, 4 Trebles and 1 Fourfold.
      • Lucky 31 (5 selections) comprises: 5 Singles, 10 Doubles, 10 Trebles, 5 Fourfolds and 1 Fivefold.
      • Lucky 63 (6 selections) comprises: 6 Singles, 15 Doubles, 20 Trebles, 15 Fourfolds, 6 Fivefolds and 1 Sixfold.
  12. Cash Out

    • Cash Out is a feature which is offered on various singles and multiples Sportsbook bets. Cash Out allows you to amend your original bet and lock in a profit or a loss by settling your bet (or a portion of your bet) early, without having to wait for the event to finish.
    • Your request to Cash Out is not guaranteed to be accepted and may be unsuccessful if, for example, the market suspends the odds move before your request has been processed, due to an unforeseen technical issue, or if the third-party provider who covers the sporting event has not been able to continue coverage as originally agreed. Betfair reserve the right to suspend or disable the Cash Out feature at any time.
    • If your Cash Out request is successful, a "success" message will be shown and your bet (or the relevant portion of your bet) will be settled immediately and any winnings returned to your account equal to the amount shown on the Cash Out button. Note that this includes the original stake (or portion of your stake) and the total amount returned to your account will be the amount shown on the Cash Out button. The For a full Cash Out, the bet is settled and any subsequent events will have no impact on the amount returned to your account. For a partial Cash Out, part of your bet is settled and any subsequent events will only impact on the portion of your bet which you have not Cashed Out.
    • Live Betting Rules apply on all live bets where Cash Out is available.
    • Using Cash Out may mean you will opt out of and no longer be eligible for a particular promotion (e.g. Acca Insurance). See the terms and conditions of the promotion for further details.
    • On bets when a free bet has been used, cash out will be unavailable until the value of your cash out is higher than the value of your free bet.
    • Betfair reserves the right to reverse the settlement of a Cash Out if the bet or a market is settled in error (for example, a human or technical error). If Betfair resettles a bet, this may lead to amendments being made to a customer's balance to reflect changes in bet settlement.
    • For horse racing, Betfair reserves the right to cancel a cash-out settlement when the selection that has been cashed out on becomes a non-runner subsequent to the bet being cashed out. In this occurrence as the bet placed was on a non-runner the bet will be void and the bet stake will be refunded.
  13. Edge

      13.1 Acca Edge

      • Applies to Sportsbook (fixed odds) accumulator bets only.
      • Not available for each-way accumulators, SP accumulators, bets placed with free bet tokens or permutation multiples (Yankee, Lucky 15 etc.).
      • Stakes are returned as cash.
      • Acca Edge must be ticked at the time of bet placement and you must receive confirmation from Betfair that it has been "applied".
      • You acknowledge that the odds with Acca Edge may be different from the odds of the bet without Acca Edge.
      • Acca Edge will become void if any leg is settled void or any leg is subject to a Dead Heat Reduction. In such circumstances the bet will revert to a normal accumulator bet without the Acca Edge and be priced based on the original leg prices taken at bet placement.
      • Bets placed with Acca Edge are available for Cash Out, however any Cash Out (partial or full) will render Acca Edge void.
      • Betfair reserves the right to suspend or disable the Acca Edge feature at any time.

      13.2 Each Way Edge

      • Applies to Sportsbook (fixed odds) Each Way singles only on selected (determined by Betfair trading team) Horse Races.
      • Not available for multiples or SP singles.
      • At the time of placement â€" the odds and place terms must be updated in the betslip, highlighted in yellow, and the Each Way Edge applied message in view. Successful placement of the bet with Each Way Edge applied will be included in the bet receipt.
      • You acknowledge that the odds and place terms with Each Way Edge applied vary from the odds of the bet without Each Way Edge.
      • Bets placed with Each Way Edge are eligible for Cash Out if the Cash Out icon is shown, subject to the standard Cash Out terms.
      • If the number of non-runners results in a change in the standard each way terms, then the terms of the Each Way Edge bet will also be altered to reflect this. In summary:.
        • An EW Edge bet is an offset to normal EW terms, so if the EW terms on the market change after a withdrawal, the EW Edge terms can change too.
          • E.g. if there is a market with 3 places @ 1/5 and EW Edge is used to take 4 places. If the market changes to 2 places @ 1/4 after a withdrawal, the EW Edge bet has terms of 3 places @ 1/4
        • If the market place fraction changes (e.g. market changes from 3 @ 1/4 to 3 @ 1/5) then the fraction changes for EW Edge bets too
        • If an EW Edge bet reverts to Win only (e.g. -1 offset on a 3 place market when the market changes to 2 places), the price after EW Edge will still be honoured (but with rule4s applied if relevant).
        • If the market drops to Win only, positive EW Edges are still EW bets.
      • Bets placed with Each Way Edge applied are not eligible for Best Odds Guaranteed.
      • Betfair reserves the right to suspend or disable the Each Way Edge feature at any time.
  14. Enhanced Price Bets

    • Unless otherwise stated, bets for which enhanced prices are offered will be governed by Betfair's usual settlement rules.
    • We reserve the right to void any bet with an enhanced price if: (i) the enhanced price was intended to apply to pre-match bets only and (ii) we erroneously accepted the bet, at its enhanced price, after the relevant event started.
    • In the event of a clear and obvious wording or pricing error for an enhanced bet, we will (in accordance with our usual settlement rules) aim to settle the bet at the price at which we intended to offer, and/or pursuant to the wording which was clearly intended to relate to, the relevant bet
    • For Oddsboosts that include multiple players, in the event that one or more player(s) listed does not take part, we reserve the right to settle the bet based on the odds of the remaining players.
    • For Oddsboosts that include multiple Matches, in the event that one or more Match(es) doesn’t take place, we reserve the right to settle the bet based on the odds of the remaining Matches
  15. Competitors with the same name

    • Where there is more than one competitor with the same surname and the selection has not been identified by either first name, team (where applicable), or qualifying price the competitor with the lowest advertised price will be taken as the selection.
    • In the event of one or more competitors being quoted at the lowest advertised price then the stake will be divided between them.
  16. Late Bets

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

    • Bets placed after the final event result is known will be voided.
    • Should there be a dispute over the off-time of an event/market where an official starting time is not given by that sports governing body, then the time that Betfair determines the event to have started will govern settlement of all bets.
  17. Cup/Trophy Competitions

    • Unless we advertise other terms, we will settle outright betting on the player or team that lifts the trophy.
  18. Outright, Tournament and Match Betting

    • When odds for outright, tournament, match and handicap betting are advertised, and the customer hasn't indicated clearly their intended market, the bet will be settled on the match betting on the next match to happen involving that team.
    • Where the price taken indicates the customer's intended market, this will govern the settlement.
  19. Rigging/Fixing Suspicions

    • Where there is evidence of price, race, match or event rigging, we reserve the right to withhold payment, pending the outcome of any subsequent investigation and ultimately to declare bets on that event as void.

The Betfair rules for bet settlement still apply and as such we accept no liability for any discrepancies between information displayed here and how a bet is settled.
  21. Injuries

    • In the event of any injury news being announced in a market where the number of games or price of runners remaining can significantly affect the prices, e.g. top goalscorer/top runscorer, we reserve the right to either void bets, apply a Rule 4 deduction or revert bets to the next price offered after the market has been revised due to that injury news.
    • This could apply to bets placed between the release of the injury news and the revision of the market in question.

      • Match Handicap Betting, Match Point Handicap, Total Games & Total Points:
        • Following either a disqualification or retirement from a match or an abandonment of a match, all bets on these markets will be voided other than those in respect of which markets have already been unequivocally determined. For example, should a match be abandoned in the 3rd game in a best of 3 game match, then bets on Over 2 / Under 3 Games will be settled as winners/losers accordingly (since the match has gone to a decisive 3rd game).
      • Current Game Winner, Game Handicap Betting, Current Game Correct Score, Current Game Total Points, Current Game Extra Points, Current Game Lead after x Pts & Current Game Race to x Pts:
        • Following either a disqualification or retirement from a match or an abandonment of a match during the game on which the applicable bet was placed, all bets on these markets will be void other than those in respect of which markets have already been unequivocally determined. For example, should a game be abandoned at 20-15 then bets on Over/Under 35.5 points or fewer in that game will be settled as winners/losers respectively (since, at the point of abandonment, any conclusion to the game would necessarily have to have had at least 36 points).

The day of the event will be considered the day according to the time zone in which the game was scheduled to be played.
      • 7 Innings Games: For MLB games scheduled to be only 7 innings at its commencement, normal baseball rules apply with all markets settled as per MLB.com. Where a 7 innings game is shortened after the first pitch (i.e. called due to rain) the following settlement rules will apply:
        • Moneyline settled per the “4.5 Innings Rule”
        • Markets unequivocally determined before the game was shortened will be settled as already determined (example: 1st innings total runs scored if game gets called in 3rd innings)
        • All other markets (including but not limited to Run Line and Total Runs) will be void unless a minimum of 7 innings’ play, or 6.5 innings should the home team be leading at the commencement of the bottom of the 7th innings.
      • In the event of a shortened game, results are official after (and, unless otherwise stated, bets shall be settled subject to the completion of) 5 innings of play, or 4.5 innings should the home team be leading at the commencement of the bottom of the 5th innings (the 4.5 Innings Rule). Should a game be called, if the result is official in accordance with this rule, the winner will be determined by the score after the last full inning completed (unless the home team score to tie, or take the lead in the bottom half of the inning, in which circumstances the winner is determined by the score at the time the game is suspended).
      • Notwithstanding the above, in certain circumstances where we so specify, results will only be official after (and bets shall be settled subject to the completion of) a minimum of 9 innings play, or 8.5 innings should the home team be leading at the commencement of the bottom of the 9th innings (the 8.5 Innings Rule).
      • For the purposes of live betting, the 8.5 Innings Rule shall automatically apply unless stated otherwise - e.g. in the section below entitled Overview of Specific Baseball Markets (which shall take precedence over this section). However, should a game be shortened due to bad weather or similar, live betting markets which have been unequivocally determined will stand (irrespective of the 8.5 Innings Rule or whether or not an official league result has been confirmed).
      • Extra innings, where applicable, count for settlement purposes.
      • If a game is suspended and continues to a conclusion the following day (local time), then all bets will stand. In the case of a suspended MLB Playoff games, all bets will stand until the game is completed.
      • Save where otherwise specified, the scheduled starting pitchers (the Listed Pitchers) must start for bets to stand. In the event there is a double pitching change, where a pitcher is changed but then re-instated, it will be treated as a normal pitching change.
      • For settlement purposes, the team listed second in the event name is considered to be the home team (even if the game takes place at a neutral venue). Example: "Team A v Team B" or "Team A At Team B", Team B is the home team.
      • All outright markets include playoffs where applicable.
      • Should a mercy rule be applied, for settlement purposes, markets (for both pre-match and live betting) will be settled according to the result as determined by the application of the mercy rule.
      • The scheduled starting pitchers (“Listed Pitchers”) are not relevant to any Baseball markets and bets on such markets will stand regardless of whether any Listed Pitchers do in fact start.
      • Should a game end in a tie and no extra innings are played, Money Line betting will be void with all other markets settled as per the result.
      • For double-headers in the Australian Baseball League (ABL), each of the first games are 7 inning games and are priced and settled accordingly. If the first game of a double header goes to extra innings, causing the second game to be shortened to less than the scheduled 9 innings as a result, all bets on the run line and total market for the second game will be void. All head to head bets on the second game will still stand.

  8. Big Brother, Christmas Number One and Other Novelty markets

    Big Brother

    • Should a contestant be evicted from the house, removed by Big Brother or leave of their own accord, they will be settled as a loser. Should that same contestant be re-admitted at a later date, they will be treated as a new contestant and previous bets will not stand.
    • Eviction markets apply only to official Channel Four/Five evictions. Any contestant leaving the house of their own accord or removed by Big Brother will not be treated as the next evictee for betting purposes. Betfair reserves the right to void all bets placed on an eviction market should the initial line up for eviction be changed. Others may be added to the market at any time.
    • Betfair is not responsible for the way in which Channel Four/Five conduct the show. Any late changes to methods of eviction, addition or subtraction of housemates or any other factors affecting the market are beyond our control.
    • Any disputes concerning any market will be referred to Channel Four/Five for clarification; their decision will be treated as final.
    • Betfair reserves the right to suspend any market at any time.
    • For the purposes of our markets, we will define an eviction as the permanent expulsion from the house of contestant or contestants. Therefore, fake evictions will not be considered as winners. Therefore any bets placed on a stipulated eviction (e.g. first) will run until a person is seen to egress the house with no immediate prospect of return.
    • Betfair reserves the right to apply a dead heat reduction on any event where more winners are declared than were originally specified.
    • In the event of the series been cancelled before an official winner is declared, bets will be settled as a dead heat between the contestants that have not been eliminated. Outright bets on contestants already eliminated will be treated as losing selections.

    Christmas Number One

    • Bets placed on the next Christmas number one will be settled on the basis of the UK Chart declared by the Official Charts Company.
    • For the purpose of this market, featuring artists do not count. Whether or not a song is considered to be a duet or, alternatively, a song which includes a "featuring artist" will be determined by officialcharts.com. In particular, it will be determinative if officialcharts.com includes the word "featuring" or the abbreviation "FT" (or similar) before an artist's name. Where a duet has a realistic prospect of achieving the Christmas number 1 spot, we will endeavour to offer a selection in respect of that duet (for example, Calvin Harris and Sam Smith).
    • Where multiple versions of a particular artist's song include different secondary artists (and those multiple versions are considered by the Official Charts Company to represent a single entry), it is only the primary artist that will be deemed, for settlement purposes, to be included in the entry. For example, the official Christmas Number One in 2017 was Ed Sheeran's "Perfect" (albeit that such song achieved its placing as a consequence of separate versions which included Beyonce and Andrea Bocelli). In such circumstances, Ed Sheeran alone would be considered to have achieved the official Christmas number one.

    Other Novelty Markets

    • TV Specials: If a winner is not declared for the series in question then the outright markets will be made void.
    • The betting rules for other novelty markets are often very specific and will usually be displayed on the same page as the betting market in question.

        • Results are not official for betting purposes until verified by officials at the fighting venue. If for some reason official verification does not occur at the fighting venue, then (and only then) will reference will be made to www.boxrec.com for settlement purposes. Should an official or unofficial sanctioning body overturn a fight decision based on an appeal, suspension, lawsuit, drug testing result or any other fighter sanction, this will not be recognised for betting purposes.
        • Should a contest be postponed, bets will stand if the rescheduled event occurs within 48 hours. Otherwise, all bets in relation to the contest will be void.
        • In the event of a 'no contest' being declared, all bets will be made void, with the exception of selections where the outcome has already been unequivocally determined.
        • Should there be a substitution for one of the boxers, bets on the original contest will be void, except in a tournament based competition where the equivalent of a Tattersalls Rule 4 deduction may apply (see Prize Fighter below)
        • Should there be a change in the manner in which a contest is advertised (e.g. a contest changes from a title fight to a non-title fight) bets will stand.
        • Match Betting markets where no draw selection is offered will be made void if the match ends in a draw.
        • In fights where the scheduled number of rounds changes, all bets will stand unless the result would be automatically determined by the change in the number of rounds (in which case, such bets will be voided). For example, if a fight gets changed from a 12 to a 10 round fight, bets on rounds 11 and 12 will be void.
        • Exhibition Fights – if a result is declared in the ring, all bets will be settled as per the result announced. If there is no result declared then all bets will be void.
      • Round Betting/Group Round Betting/Alternative Group Round Betting

        • Subject to the following rule, should, for any reason, the scheduled number of rounds be changed before the commencement of the contest, all round by round bets will stand.
        • Notwithstanding the above rule, should, for any reason, the scheduled number of rounds be decreased before the commencement of the contest, all round by round bets on the dropped rounds will be void. Bets on all the remaining rounds will stand.
        • Where a contest finishes before the completion of the scheduled number of rounds and, for any reason, the winner is decided by the "judges" scorecards (technical decision/technical draw) then all round bets will be deemed losers.
        • If the contest goes to the scorecards, then all round bets will be deemed losers.
        • Where a contest finishes before the scheduled number of rounds due to an accidental injury and the winner is not determined by the "judges" scorecards, all bets will be void.
        • For "Total Rounds" settlement purposes, 1 minute and 30 seconds will represent half a round. For example, for a bet on "Over 10.5 rounds" to be a winner, the fight must last beyond 1 minute and 30 seconds in round 11. If the number of rounds for a fight is changed after this market has been set then all bets on this market will be void.
        • For "Will the Fight Go the Distance" (or similarly titled) markets, should the scheduled number of rounds change, this market will be made void. In the event of a technical decision, for settlement purposes, the fight will have been deemed NOT to have gone the distance (i.e. the scheduled number of rounds).
      • Round Specials
        • Any bets placed on occurrences to occur (or not to occur) in a given round will be deemed losing bets if the fight concludes (for any reason) before that round. For example, any bets on a fighter to have a point deducted in round 9 will be deemed losing bets if a knock-out brings the relevant fight to a conclusion in round 7.
      • Method of victory
        • A knockout (KO) occurs when the boxer does not stand up after a ten count. Technical knockouts (TKO) occur when a boxer is knocked down three times within the same round and the fight is stopped or where the referee steps in to stop the fight when it is decided that a fighter cannot safely continue. If a fighter fails to answer a bell for the next round then this will also be deemed a TKO. For betting purposes, KO/TKO options also include disqualification and retirement.
      • Technical Decision/Draw
        • If a fight is scheduled for more than four rounds and, after four rounds, an accidental foul occurs which causes an injury (further to which the referee stops the fight), the fight will be deemed to have resulted in a technical decision in favour of the boxer who is ahead on the scorecards at the time the fight is stopped (and all markets on the fight will stand).

In all other scenarios, dead heat rules will apply.

Should there be a reduction in the scheduled overs then settlement will still apply provided the reduction is no more than 20% of the entire innings allocation at the time the bet was placed (including any overs the team has already faced). Should the reduction in overs be greater than 20% then all bets on this market shall be void unless the outcome of such any such bet had already been unequivocally determined prior to the conclusion of the shortened innings.

      • The rules in this sub-section apply specifically to the settlement of any cricket bets which are placed via #OddsOnThat ("OOT").

      • For the settlement of OOT bets, a wicket will not be deemed to have occurred if a batsman retires from play.

      • If a team's innings in a test match or county championship match lasts less than sixty overs for any "external" reason (i.e. other than in circumstances where the innings has reached its natural conclusion) then OOT bets relating to that team's innings will be void.

Should the reduction in overs be greater than 10% then any OOT bets in respect of that match shall be void (irrespective of the total number of runs achieved by either team) unless the bet in question had been unequivocally determined at the time of the curtailed completion of the match (i.e. such that, at the time of the curtailed completion, the outcome of the bet could not have been different had the additional scheduled overs been played).
      • The maximum pay-out in respect of a cricket OOT bet shall be £/€ 50,000.

    • If there is no presentation ceremony, outcomes will be determined in accordance with the official result of the relevant governing body, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result (except if an amendment is announced within 24 hours of the initial settlement of the relevant market in order to correct an error in reporting the result).

  14. eSports General Rules

    • If an event involves the same two players or teams playing multiple games/maps, E.G. "Best of 3", and one or more games or maps are not played because the result of the event has already been determined, bets on such games or maps are void.
    • Postponements/Cancellations

    • Dates and start times are shown for info purposes only. Events cancelled, postponed or interrupted and not completed within 48 hours of the originally scheduled start time, bets on that event are void and stakes refunded. However, games or maps that are completed within 48 hours are settled normally even if additional games or maps that were supposed to be part of the same matchup are cancelled or further postponed.
    • Broadcast

    • Bets are settled based on the official broadcast of the game by the publisher or event organiser. Where the broadcast shows a counter of rounds won, kills, dragons, towers etc., this will generally be used to settle relevant bets. If the result of a bet is unclear from the broadcast, or if there is no broadcast, then the statistics API for the game will be used where available.
    • Indexed Markets

    • In the case of indexed or numbered markets (such as the winner of a specific round in Counter Strike: GO, or the team to score a particular numbered kill in League of Legends or DOTA2), the index determines the objective that counts. Words such as "next" in the market name are not guaranteed to be correct, as broadcasts may be delayed and we may not always advance the index precisely when an objective is scored or a round completed. All bets are therefore settled on the particular numbered round or objective specified, regardless of any other wording in the market name or its timing in relation to when the bet was placed.
    • If the scheduled number of rounds or maps is changed, or if markets are erroneously offered based on a different number of rounds or maps from the actually scheduled number, then bets on the winning margin (including handicap), total rounds / maps, correct scores etc. are void and stakes refunded. Map winner and matchup winner bets stand.
    • If any map is not played or is awarded to one player or team by walkover or default without play having commenced, all bets on that map and on the matchup as a whole are void and stakes refunded. Bets relating only to maps that are played stand. A map is deemed to have started as soon as the game clock starts or either team or player takes a game action relating to that map, including picks, bans and weapon purchases.
    • League of Legends

    • Towers - all destroyed towers count as having been destroyed by the opposing team even if the last hit was from a minion.
    • Inhibitors - all destroyed inhibitors count as having been destroyed by the opposing team even if the last hit was from a minion. For bets involving the number of inhibitors destroyed, each of the six inhibitors counts only once, even if it is destroyed, respawns and is destroyed again. For bets involving the next inhibitor destroyed, each destruction of an inhibitor counts separately, even where it has respawned and is being destroyed for a second or subsequent time.
    • For bets involving kills (inc "First Blood", which in League of Legends is synonymous with the first kill on the map), the official broadcast or game API if available is definitive in determining whether the death of a Champion counts as a kill. For example, where a Champion is killed by tower or minion damage without the involvement of an enemy Champion this may not be registered as a kill on the broadcast, in which case it does not count as a kill for bet settlement purposes.
    • For bets involving the next team to score a particular objective or the team to score the most of a particular objective, where a "neither" or "draw" option is offered and is the winning outcome, bets on either team are losers. Where no such selection is offered and neither team is a winner, all bets on the market are void and stakes refunded.
    • Surrenders

    • Where one team surrenders, bets stand and are settled as follows. For bets involving the map winner, the winning team is the team that did not surrender.
    • Bets involving dragons, barons and kills are settled based on the situation at the time the surrender takes place.
    • Bets involving towers and inhibitors are settled as if the winning team had destroyed the minimum number of additional towers and / or inhibitors theoretically required to win the game normally from the position when the surrender occurred. For example, if any inhibitor of the losing team is down at the time of surrender then no additional inhibitor is deemed to have been destroyed. If no inhibitor of the losing team is down then the winning team is deemed to have destroyed one additional inhibitor, with priority given to an inhibitor that has already been destroyed if such an inhibitor exists and has respawned. If the winning team has destroyed all tier 1 towers and one tier 2 tower, then it will be deemed to have destroyed three further towers (seven in total), since it would have needed to destroy at least one tier 3 tower and the two nexus towers to have won the game normally from that position.
    • DOTA2

    • Towers - all destroyed towers count as having been destroyed by the opposing team even if the last hit was from a minion.
    • Barracks - all destroyed barracks count as having been destroyed by the opposing team even if the last hit was from a minion. The ranged and melee barracks in each pair count as separate barracks, so that each team has a total of six barracks.
    • Kills (other than "First Blood") - the official broadcast or game API if available is definitive in determining whether the death of a Champion counts as a kill. E.G. where a Champion is killed by tower or minion damage without the involvement of an enemy Champion this may not be registered as a kill on the broadcast, in which case it does not count as a kill for bet settlement purposes.
    • First Blood - The broadcast or official API score must register the kill as First Blood. Where, for example, a kill is denied by a team-mate, it may not be counted as First Blood (regardless of whether it is registered as a kill on the broadcast kill counter), in which case it will not count as First Blood for bet settlement purposes. For the avoidance of doubt, all kill markets other than "First Blood" are settled based on the kill counter, but a kill that is registered on the kill counter will count as First Blood only if is announced as such.
    • Roshans - the team that scores the last hit on Roshan as determined by the broadcast or game API if available is deemed to have slain Roshan, regardless of the player who picks up the aegis of the immortal.
    • Next team to score a particular objective or the team to score the most of a particular objective - where a "neither" or "draw" option is offered and is the winning outcome, bets on either team are losers. Where no such selection is offered and neither team is a winner, all bets on the market are void and stakes refunded
    • Surrenders

    • Where one team surrenders, bets stand and are settled as follows:
    • For bets involving the map winner, the winning team is the team that did not surrender.
    • Bets involving Roshans, barracks and kills are settled based on the situation at the time the surrender takes place.
    • Bets involving towers are settled as if the winning team had destroyed the minimum number of additional towers theoretically required to win the game normally from the position when the surrender occurred. For example, if the winning team has destroyed all tier 1 towers and one tier 2 tower, then it will be deemed to have destroyed three further towers (seven in total), since it would have needed to destroy at least one tier 3 tower and the two ancient towers to have won the game normally from that position.
    • Counter Strike: GO

    • Most map bets are based on the scheduled number of rounds (usually best of 30) excluding extra rounds played in the event of a draw. If, however, a map winner market is offered without a "draw" selection then this is settled in favour of the overall winner of the map (inc ET if played)
  15. Futsal

    • Bets will be settled according to the result declared by the relevant governing body at the end of the match. In the absence of consistent, independent evidence or in the presence of significant conflicting evidence, bets will be settled based on our own statistics.
    • All markets will be settled with the result at the end of regular time (40 minutes). The only exceptions are for matches that are played for a lesser duration (e.g. 30 minutes) as agreed by the laws of the competition in which they are competing or agreed by both sides prior to kick-off. In such cases, if the match is played in the traditional format of 2 halves, all bets will be settled at the end of the agreed game length.
    • In the event of a match not taking place, bets on this match are deemed void.
    • Should a match be abandoned all markets will be voided unless the outcome has been unequivocally decided.

For the purpose of this rule, the scheduled start time of a match shall be that which is declared by the GAA Central Council, the individual provincial councils and/or the individual county boards which determine the applicable competition fixtures. In the event of any conflict or inconsistency between the start times declared by any of the foregoing, the order of priority shall be (in descending order): (i) the GAA Central Council then (ii) the individual provincial councils then (iii) the individual county boards.
    • #OddsOnThat GAA Rules
      • The rules in this sub-section apply specifically to the settlement of any GAA bets which are placed via #oddsonthat (OOT).

      • If any player who is part of an OOT bet does not take any part in the relevant match, then the entire OOT bet in question will be voided.
      • For OOT bets on a player to score under or over a total number of points: (i) the player selected must start the match (bets will be voided in instances where the relevant player does not start) and (ii) placed balls (i.e. free kicks, penalties, 45s and side-line balls) that result in a score will count towards this tally unless otherwise stated.
      • For any OOT bets, extra time and/or replays will not count unless expressly specified otherwise.
      • Any OOT bets involving woodwork to be hit require that the ball must hit a goalpost or the crossbar during active play.

For example, if a goalkeeper touches the ball but the referee brings back play for any reason (e.g. a free kick is awarded in respect of an infringement which occurred before the goalkeeper touched the ball), the goalkeeper will, for the purposes of these rules, be deemed not to have touched the ball.
      • Where an obvious pricing error has occurred, we reserve the right to cancel any OOT bets placed at the incorrect price (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the OOT bet to be re-placed at the correct price).
      • For any obvious wording errors, we reserve the right to cancel any OOT bets placed on that selection (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the OOT bet to be re-placed with the correct wording).

        • For any OOT bets which involve a player to win a tournament, if that player shares the same lowest score in the tournament as another player and there is no play-off, the relevant part of the OOT bet will be settled according to our normal dead heat rules.
        • In the event of a play-off, the result of the play-off will determine the winner of the tournament. Even if three or more contestants take part in a play-off, such a play-off has, for the purposes of any OOT bets, the sole purpose of determining the winner of the tournament (meaning that the relative finishing positions, within the tournament, of unsuccessful play-off contestants is not affected by their placing in the play-off).
        • Any players who withdraw from a tournament after they have completed 3 holes or more are considered as having played in the tournament and, therefore, any OOT bets placed on those players will be deemed to be losing bets.
        • For any OOT bets which involve a player that has withdrawn before they have completed 3 holes, the bet in question will be voided in its entirety.
        • Where an obvious pricing error has occurred, we reserve the right to cancel any OOT bets placed at the incorrect price (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the OOT bet to be re-placed at the correct price).
        • Any OOT bets involving a player to finish in the top 5/10/15/20 (or similar) will (unless otherwise stated) be deemed successful if the player finishes in a tie for the last named place. For example, if an OOT bet is placed on player to finish in the top 10 and the player finishes in tied 10th position, the OOT bet will be settled as a winning bet.
        • For any obvious wording errors, we reserve the right to cancel any OOT bets placed on that selection (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the OOT bet to be re-placed with the correct wording).
        • The maximum payout on an OOT golf bet shall be £/€50,000. For the avoidance of doubt, this maximum applies to all elements of your OOT bet when taken together (i.e. it does not apply separately to each element of your OOT bet).
  18. Greyhound Racing

      18.1 General

      • The following rules apply solely to online and mobile bets which are placed via the Betfair Sportsbook on greyhound racing. Separate rules apply to bets which are placed on the Betfair Exchange.
      • For greyhound racing markets, Best Odds Guaranteed is available to all new and existing Betfair customers unless we have informed any such customer, via email or otherwise, that Best Odds Guaranteed is no longer available to him\her.
      • Best Odds Guaranteed applies, for Winner markets only (win and each way), to any price taken on singles and multiples after 8am on the day of the applicable race.
      • "Best Odds Guaranteed" is offered on UK and Irish greyhound racing only.
      • "Best Odds Guaranteed" is not available on Future Racing markets.
      • Where "Best Odds Guaranteed" is offered, bets will be settled at the Industry Starting Price ("SP") if the SP is bigger than the price taken by the customer when they place their bet. For example, if the price taken is 3/1 and the SP is 4/1, we will pay out at the bigger price of 4/1.
      • Greyhound names are displayed on Betfair's website for information purposes only and all bets will be settled on the basis of the trap numbers on which bets are placed.
      • Double result concessions do not apply to our greyhound racing markets.
      • Where a "no race" is declared, all bets will be voided unless the "re-run" race takes place on the same day (in which case all original bets will stand).
      • All bets will be settled on the basis of the official result declared on the day of the relevant race. If the official result is retrospectively changed, Betfair will not resettle the applicable markets.
      • In the event that no starting prices are returned for an individual race, all bets on that race will be declared void.
      • Where a greyhound is withdrawn from a race or replaced by an alternative (e.g. reserve) greyhound, all early price bets which were placed on the remaining greyhounds before the withdrawal or replacement will be settled at those greyhounds' starting prices (while all bets placed following a withdrawal or replacement will be settled at the relevant greyhounds' early prices).
      • Each way starting price bets will be accepted for unnamed favourites. All unnamed second favourites are win only and, therefore, no each way betting is available for them.

      18.2 Maximum Payouts

      • Future Greyhounds are subject to a maximum payment of £50,000. The only exception to this is the English Greyhound Derby which has a maximum payout, for Future Greyhound bets, of £100,000.
      • The maximum payout to any one customer in respect of bets on any single day's greyhound racing in the UK is £100,000 to the extent that such bets are covered by a "full service". Unless stated otherwise herein, bets on all Irish greyhound races and UK bets which are not covered by a "full service" are subject to a maximum payout of £10,000.
      • Betfair only accepts bets in respect of greyhound meetings which are displayed on its websites. The only exceptions to this rule are when prices are quoted over the phone and applied to a customer's account. Any bets inadvertently processed in respect of events which are not displayed on Betfair's website will be voided (regardless of the result).

      18.3 Future Greyhounds Betting

      • For the avoidance of doubt, Future Racing and Antepost bets refer to the same market type and either term may be used interchangeably.
      • Unless stated otherwise in the remainder of this sub-section, Future Greyhounds bets are accepted on an "all-in" basis, whether a selection runs or not. Therefore, in the event of a non-runner, for whatever reason, all bets placed on an Future Greyhounds basis will stand.
      • When the runners for a Future Greyhounds event are finally determined (generally, this will mean that the event has been whittled down to 6 runners), all bets placed after the Trap Draw for the Final is announced will revert to Non-Runner No Bet.
      • All bets placed after the trap draw for a final has been announced will be settled at their starting price (i.e. SP) should any of the other finalists fail to take their place for whatever reason.
      • Bets placed on a given greyhound after the trap draw for a final will be voided if that greyhound is withdrawn from the race (i.e. such bets will be settled on a "non-runner no bet" basis).

      18.4 Each way Betting

      • Each way betting on greyhound races will be settled as follows: (i) 8 runners = 1/5th of the full payout for first three finishers and (ii) 5-7 runners = 1/4 of the full payout for the first two finishers. Where there are four runners or fewer in a greyhound race, we do not offer each way betting.
      • Where the number of runners in a race is reduced to four (i.e. for a race in which five or more greyhounds were previously due to compete), any each way bets will be automatically converted to "win only" bets.

      18.5 Trap Challenge Bets

      • A trap challenge bet is a bet placed on the most successful trap across a number of races.
      • Where a trap challenge market offered by Betfair is described by reference to specified timeframes, the postponement of any races (such that they do not occur within those timeframes) will be disregarded. For example if a meeting is scheduled to run from 18:38 to 21:26 but the 21:26 race ends up taking place at 21:49 due to unforeseen circumstances, the postponed race will still form part of any trap challenge bets which are placed in respect of such meeting.
      • Trap challenge bets are defined by reference to their scheduled off-times. Any race which occurs outside of those scheduled off-times will not be included within the relevant bet (save where the race in question occurs outside of the scheduled off-time due to postponement).
      • Trap challenge results stand irrespective of vacant traps, reserves running or void races. No Rule 4 deductions will be applied to trap challenge markets.
      • All trap challenge bets will stand if more than half of the specified races in the named trap challenge market take place. If half of the races or fewer take place, bets on the relevant trap challenge market will be voided.
      • Trap Challenge markets are win only and are only available up until the first scheduled race.
      • If two or more trap numbers record the same number of wins then our normal dead-heat rules will apply to applicable trap challenge markets.
      • Should any individual race result in a dead heat for 1st place then all greyhounds concerned will be regarded as having won that race for trap challenge settlement purposes.
      • Inside v Outside - In races where there are less than six runners, all Inside / Outside trap bets will be void.

      18.6 Placepots / Placers

      • Placepots and/or placer bets can be accepted via telephone only. Named runners will not be accepted, only trap numbers.
      • Should a vacant trap replace a selected greyhound, any bet on that trap number will automatically be deemed to be a bet on the unnamed favourite. If, in such circumstances, there are joint-favourites for the race in question, the bet will automatically be deemed to be a bet on the joint-favourite with the lowest racecard number.
      • In the event of a placepot / placer bet being accepted on a meeting where a dividend is not declared, all such placepot / placer bets will be deemed void (irrespective of the result).

      18.7 Tote Forecasts

      • Forecast dividends are declared to a £1 stake and will be settled according to the BAGS industry forecast dividend.
      • Where a forecast bet has been placed by a customer and one of the customer's selections becomes a vacant trap, the customer's bet will automatically be converted into a win single on the remaining selection (the odds for such win single to be the remaining greyhound's starting price).
      • In the event that any number of greyhounds are involved in a dead-heat for either 1st or 2nd place then an industry dividend will be issued for both winning forecasts.

      18.8Tote Tricasts

      • Tricast dividends are declared to a £1 stake and will be settled according to the BAGS industry tricast dividend.
      • If a tricast is accepted on a race where no tricast dividend is declared then any tricast bets will be settled as a forecast bets on the first two greyhounds appearing on the customer's bet slip.
      • Where a tricast bet has been placed by a customer and one of the customer's selections becomes a vacant trap, the customer's bet will automatically be converted into a forecast bet on the remaining selections. If two of the customer's selections become vacant traps, the customer's bet will automatically be converted into a win single on the remaining selection (the odds for such win single to be the remaining greyhound's starting price).
      • In the event that any number of greyhounds are involved in a dead heat for either 1st, 2nd or 3rd place then an industry dividend will be issued for each winning forecast.
      • Tricasts are accepted as singles only. Multiples accepted in error will be deemed void (irrespective of the result).

      18.9 Fixed Odds Forecasts and Fixed Odds Tricasts

      • Should there be any non-runners in a race, bets will be settled at Industry Dividends.
      • Should any selection included within a fixed odds forecast or fixed odds tricast bet be a non-runner, the entire forecast or tricast bet in question will be void.

      18.10 Coursing

      • All bets will be settled as per Irish Coursing Club (ICC) rules. In all circumstances, the judge's decision will be final.
      • If a greyhound is withdrawn before coming under the slipper's control in the first round, bets placed on such greyhound will be deemed void.
      • In the event of a final not being run for any reason, our dead heat rules will apply to all antepost bets.
  19. Handball

    • In case of a match being postponed it will be voided unless it takes place within 48 hours of the initial scheduled starting time.
    • Settled on 60 minutes play unless stated otherwise. Extra time does not count.
    • If 60 minutes is not completed then all bets will be void, except those that have been unconditionally determined. If an official result is declared all bets will stand.
    • The name/heading of a competition amounts to evidence of what a bet refers to. For example, if you place a bet on "Norway vs Brazil" under the competition name/heading U20 World Cup, the bet will apply to the match between Norway and Brazil which is part of the U20 World Cup.
  20. Hockey

    • In case of a match being postponed it will be voided unless it takes place within 36 hours of the initial scheduled starting time.
    • Overtime does not count unless stated otherwise.
    • Should a match be abandoned all markets will be voided unless the outcome has been unequivocally decided.
  21. Horseracing

      21.1General

      • Unless stated otherwise, all individual race markets will be determined according to the official result at the time of the "weigh-in" announcement. Subsequent disqualifications, appeals or amendments to the result will be disregarded. Card numbers are posted as a guide only: bets are placed on a named horse. Information (such as jockey silks, saddlecloth numbers etc) is provided "as is" and is for guidance only. Betfair does not guarantee the accuracy of this information and use of it to place bets is entirely at your own risk.
      • If a race is abandoned or otherwise declared void, or in the event of a walkover, all bets on that race will be void.
      • If the scheduled venue is changed after a bet is placed, all bets will be void.
      • Where a race does not take place on its scheduled day, all bets will be void.
      • If a scheduled surface type is changed (e.g. turf to dirt) all bets will stand.
      • The favourite is the selection quoted in the official starting price returns at the shortest odds. The second favourite is the horse quoted at the next shortest odds. If two horses are quoted at the same odds and these odds are shorter than those quoted against any other horses, then these two are equal first favourite and equal second favourite. If two or more co-favourites are thus selected, the stake will be divided equally between them.

      21.2Future Racing

      • For the avoidance of doubt, Future Racing and Antepost bets refer to the same market type and either term may be used interchangeably.
      • All Future Racing bets are accepted and settled on a Rules of Racing basis only.
      • Future Racing bets are accepted at quoted prices, up to and including the day prior to the event, on the basis of all in, run or not, entered or not. Therefore selections not taking part in the race/event concerned are losers
      • Future Racing bets are those placed at our quoted prices on horses and prior to the race becoming classed as ‘day of event’ (day of event is a term used to describe the time at which overnight declarations are made, usually 10am on the day preceding the race (or two days for certain Group 1 races) for horse racing and the day of the race for greyhounds).
      • All bets placed after the overnight declaration stage are settled in accordance with our early prices/day of race rules.
      • In line with principals laid down by Tattersalls Rules of Racing, Future Racing bets will be void under the following circumstances, otherwise bets stand:
        • If the race is abandoned or declared void.
        • If the venue of the race is altered or postponed to a later date at a different track.
        • If the race is postponed to a later date at the same track with entries totally reopened bets placed after the initial entries are void, but bets placed prior to the initial entry stage will stand. All bets will stand if a race is postponed to later date at the same track with the same entries, whether the bet was placed before or after the initial entries stage.
        • If the horse is balloted out or eliminated under Jockey Club rules single bets will be void. In any such cases, accumulative Future Racing bets will stand on the remaining legs, at the prices laid on the selections in those races, with a double becoming a single, a treble becoming a double, etc.
        • In the event of horses being withdrawn under Jockey Club/Turf Club rules, to limit the number of entries taken part, these horses shall be void. The liability of a layer against horses remaining will be reduced on both win and place parts of such bets, in accordance with the rate to be announced before the race by Tattersalls Committee, dependant on the odds currently available against the withdrawn horses at the time of withdrawal. All bets are executed at the price ruling at the time of handing in of the bet. We reserve the right to correct any palpable error. Win doubles, trebles, etc are calculated at full accumulative odds. Each-way doubles and trebles etc. are settled win-to-win, place-to-place, and for the place part of such bets, the fractional odds pertaining at the time of acceptance. Place only bets, conditional bets and forecast bets are not accepted for Future Racing. When the same selection is backed to win two or more races/events in Future Racing bets, special odds are applicable. These special odds will supersede the accumulative odds calculated from the individual event prices irrespective of the fact that the individual event prices may be endorsed on the slip. If special odds were not available, the stake will be divided equally as singles at the prices available at the time the bet was placed.
        • Any horse that does not qualify for, or is expunged from a race, will be settled as a loser. Bets taken on a horse after they have not qualified by the applicable qualifying date will be voided.

      21.3'Best Odds Guaranteed'

      • "Best Odds Guaranteed" is offered on UK and Irish horse race Winner markets.
      • Best Odds Guaranteed applies, for Winner markets only (win and each way), to any price taken on singles and multiples, after 8am on the day of the applicable race.
      • "Best Odds Guaranteed" is not available on Future Racing markets.
      • Where "Best Odds Guaranteed" is offered, bets will be settled at the Industry Starting Price ("SP") if the SP is bigger than the price taken by the customer when they place their bet. For example, if the price taken is 3/1 and the SP is 4/1, we will pay out at the bigger price of 4/1.
      • In the event of a Rule 4 deduction applying to a price taken, we will pay at the bigger odds after the Rule 4 deduction has been made to the price taken.
      • Where no SP is returned, the last price offered by Betfair fixed odds will be taken as the SP.
      • Betfair reserves the right to withdraw the "Best Odds Guaranteed" promotion at any time.
      • Best Odds Guaranteed is a promotion only available to customers whose registered address is in the UK or Ireland.
      • Best Odds Guaranteed does not apply to Oddsboost selections

      21.4Starting Prices

      • '˜SP bets' placed on the Betfair Sportsbook or Betfair's 'Fixed Odds' products will be settled on the official Industry Starting Price and not the 'Betfair SP'.
      • If no official Industry Starting Price or Industry Off Course Starting Price is returned, bets where no price is taken (including forecasts, tricasts and unnamed favourites) will be settled at the last price quoted on the Betfair Sportsbook prior to the off of the race.

      21.5Double Resulting

      • All bets placed on UK and Irish horse racing will be settled on First Past the Post AND the official result on the day. Any subsequent disqualification will not affect the settlement of bets.
      • This offer applies to winning single and multiple bets and the win part of Each-Way bets placed only.
      • Exceptions: The exceptions where double result does not apply and bets are only settled according to the official result are:
        • A selection taking the wrong course
        • A selection carrying the wrong weight or the jockey failing to weigh-in
        • Any bets placed at a Non UK/IRE race meetings
        • A Forecast or Tricast bet
        • A void race
        • Any Tote/Pari-Mutuel bet
        • OddsBoost markets
        • A selection given as the winner in error by the judge
        • All Future Racing bets

      21.6Match Betting

      • Where we offer match betting (i.e. where we select two or more horses in a particular race to compete against each other in a match bet), all bets will be settled in accordance with the Rules of Racing of the British Horse Racing Authority which are then in force (and results will be determined according to the official returns in the following day's Racing Post).
      • Bets are settled on the best finishing position.
      • For flat racing, if two or more of the named horses do not complete the course, the placing of those horses in relation to each other shall be determined, and bets shall be settled, according to the distance travelled by each horse (according to the official returns in the following day's Racing Post).
      • For National Hunt races, if two or more of the named horses do not complete the course, the placing of those horses in relation to each other shall be determined, and bets shall be settled, according to the number of obstacles cleared by each horse (according to the official returns in the following day's Racing Post). If both horses clear the same number of fences/hurdles, bets will be void.

      21.7Place Terms

      • Each-way bets (Win and Place) are offered for the majority of races. For all horse races (at Early Price and S.P) the each-way terms are affected by the type of race and the number of runners taking part and these terms are, unless indicated otherwise, as follows:
        Race Type No. of Runners Place Odds No. Places
        All Races 4 or less Win Only Win Only
        All Races 5-7 1/4 1,2
        Non-Handicaps 8+ 1/5 1,2,3
        Handicaps* 8-11 1/5 1,2,3
        Handicaps* 12-15 1/4 1,2,3
        Handicaps* 16+ 1/4 1,2,3,4

        ["˜Handicaps" include all Handicap and Nursery races]


      • The '˜Win' and 'Place' part of each-way multiple bets are settled separately (that is, win-to-win and place-to-place).
      • Once opened, the number of winners in 'to be placed' markets may be affected by further non-runners.
      • From time to time we may offer promotions that pay out on extra placings in a horse race. In these instances we reserve the right to alter the standard place terms as set out above (e.g. we may offer to pay out 5 or 6 places in a handicap with 16 or more runners but to do so at 1/5 of the odds as opposed to standard 1/4). These promotions are not confined to handicaps. The onus is on the customer at all times to check the each way terms on offer (particularly in those races where we are offering additional place payouts).
      • For a horse to be deemed not to have been placed in a given race, it must have started that race.
      • If the number of placed horses is less than the number of potential winners, the winners will only be the placed horse or horses.
      • If any race is reduced to four runners or less, all each-way bets will be taken as "all-to-win" given that there are no places.

      21.8Combined Winning Distance for a Meeting

      • Distances for each race meeting are settled on a 'first past the post' basis. If any of the scheduled races at a meeting are not run, bets are void unless the maximum quote has been attained.
      • The maximum winning distance per race for a flat race is 12 lengths while a National Hunt race is 30 lengths. This also applies should only one horse complete the race.
      • Distances are as follows:
        • Nose: 0.05
        • Short-head: 0.1
        • Head: 0.2
        • Neck: 0.3
        • Half a Length: 0.5
        • 3/4 of a Length: 0.75
        • 1 Length: 1
      • No Finishers - If there are no finishers in a race, it shall be treated as void.
      • Walkovers will be excluded from all markets unless created by the withdrawal of a horse after we have begun quoting a market concerning the race in question, in which case the make-ups will be as follows:
        • Distances: Flat 5 lengths, National Hunt 12 lengths.

      21.9Faller Insurance

      • Price offered is for the horse to win the race.
      • If the horse falls, unseats the jockey or is brought down the bet stake is returned. It does not apply to horses that Slip Up, Refuse, Run Out or get Carried Out.
      • In the event of a horse being withdrawn, not under starter’s orders, stakes on that selection will be returned.
      • Bets for the remaining horses in the race will be subject to a deduction in accordance with Tattersall’s R4(c) based on the Win price of the withdrawn horse(s) at the time of withdrawal, (see Tattersall’s R4 table under Horse Racing rules). E.g. Horse X priced at 4/1 in the win market and 11/4 in the "Faller Insurance" market is withdrawn then a R4 deduction of 20c based on the 4/1 Win price shall apply to the "Faller Insurance" market.
      • Refunded bets will be settled as soon as possible but in some cases may take up to an hour.
      • Where disputes arise results will be taken from www.racingpost.com

      21.10Favourites Index

      • Quotation is made on the basis that the horse which is the SP favourite is awarded 25 points if it wins, 10 points if it is second and 5 points if it is third. Points will be awarded for first 3 places irrespective of Each Way terms.
      • If there are joint or co-favourites in a race, the horse with the lowest race card number is considered, for the purposes of the bet, to be the favourite.
      • If the returned favourite (as published in the following day's tabloid edition of the Racing Post) has not come under starter's orders then, for the purposes of the bet if its price at the time of withdrawal is:
        • Equal to or greater than 5/1, 5 points will be awarded.
        • Less than 5/1 but greater than evens, 10 points will be awarded.
        • Evens or less, 15 points will be awarded.
      • No Finishers - If there are no finishers in a race, it shall be treated as void
      • Walkovers will be excluded from all markets unless created by the withdrawal of a horse after we have begun quoting a market concerning the race in question, in which case the make-ups will be as follows:
        • Favourite: 20 points
      • If the returned favourite dead-heats for one of the places then it will be awarded the average points of the two places involved.
        • For example, a dead-heat for first would be awarded the average of 25 + 10 points = 17.5 points
        • A dead-heat for second would be awarded the average of 10 + 5 points = 7.5 points
        • A dead-heat for third would be awarded the average of 5 + 0 points = 2.5 points

      21.11Winning Distance/How Far Will It Win By

      • Betting on the winning distance will be on races only as displayed.
      • The winning distance will be that margin, as officially announced between the winning horse and the second.
      • All winning distance bets are settled on a first past the post basis only, i.e. double result does not apply.
      • In the event of a withdrawal resulting in a Rule 4 of 10c or greater in a race where we offer distance betting the Rule 4 amount will be split between the number of distance options.
      • In the event of a selection being withdrawn the not to win price of the favourite will be subject to a reverse rule 4. eg 8/1 shot withdrawn, favourite 1/1 not to win. Reverse rule 4 of 10c applies. Fav not to win settled at 11/10.
      • We will pay double result in accordance with our rules on Distance Specials.
      • Where there is only one finisher in a race:
        • Where a distance special selection is the only finisher in a race, the over on the distance special will be settled as the winner and all other selections in the market will be settled as losers.
        • If there is only one finisher in the race and it is not the distance special selection, all distance bets on that selection will be settled as losers.
        • 3-way distance betting markets where no individual selections are named: When there is only one finisher, the over on this market will be settled as a winner and the under and middle options in this market will be settled as losers.

      21.12Betfair Non-Runner Rule

      • If a horse comes under Starter's Orders but refuses to race, the bet will be a loser.
      • With the exception of Future Racing bets as described above, in all horse races where a runner is withdrawn, or adjudged not to have started - and therefore been declared a Non-Runner by the starter - stakes on that selection will be refunded.
      • Bets on the remaining runners in that race, where a price has been taken, may be subject to a deduction. This is based on Tattersalls Rule 4(c) (see below) and is dependent on the withdrawn horse's price at the time it was withdrawn.
      • Bets on horses in reformed markets that subsequently have one or more withdrawn horses may also have a deduction applied based on the prices of any withdrawn horse(s) at the time of the withdrawal(s).
      • In the event that there is insufficient time to form a new market on the race, bets placed at starting price may also be subject to a deduction based on Tattersalls Rule 4(c).
      • For bets where a price is taken, the application of Rule 4(c) will be determined by the last Betfair price available at the time the relevant horse is withdrawn.

By way of example, if 37 points have been scored at the time a match is abandoned: (i) a bet placed on 35 points or more to be scored would be settled as a winning bet, (ii) a bet placed on 30-35 points to be scored would be settled as a losing bet and (iii) a bet placed on 40-45 points to be scored would be void.

Overtime/Extra Time/Sudden Death will not count except when the phrases 'To Qualify', 'Lift The Trophy', 'Win The Tie' or similar are quoted.

The only exceptions are for: matches that are scheduled for a duration other than the standard 90 minutes (e.g. 60, 70, 80 or 120 minutes) as agreed by the laws of the competition in which they are competing or agreed by both sides prior to kick-off. In such cases, if the match is played in the traditional format of two halves, all bets will be settled at the end of the agreed game length which includes time added on by the referee for stoppages (whether the game length is advertised by Betfair or not). If the game is played in an unusual format (e.g. 3 or 4 periods) then all half-time markets will be voided but all other markets will be settled on the basis of the score at the end of the match (including any time added on by the referee for stoppages).
    • For "Extra-Time" markets, bets apply to 30 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any added injury or stoppage time. However extra-time and penalty shoot-outs are not included.

    • Fixtures that are rearranged before the scheduled kick off date will not be regarded as postponements and all bets will stand, as long as the rescheduled date is within 72 hours of the original kick off time.
    • If a match starts but is later abandoned, all undetermined bets will be voided as long as the match is not played to a finish before midnight local time on its scheduled date.
    • If the venue of a match is other than is indicated on our website, the bet will stand provided the match has not been switched to the opponent's ground, in which case the match will be declared void. Notwithstanding this rule, in major international tournaments (eg World Cup, European Championships), all venues will be deemed neutral. If the scheduled venue of a match is changed, including if the venue changes to a new venue in a different country, all bets will stand.
    • Euro 2020 - If a match is rescheduled (due to COVID reason for example) in line with official UEFA rules, all bets will stand. If a team is awarded a win without playing the game, all bets will be void.

In all other cases, bets will stand (including instances where a team name is listed without specifying the term 'XI' in the name).
    • To the extent that a video assistant referee is consulted, the event which led to the referral will, for the purposes of these rules, be deemed to have occurred at the actual time of its occurrence (rather than the time on which the relevant referral, or decision, was made).
    • Where we have settled a bet and, due to a subsequent VAR decision, it becomes apparent that such settlement was inaccurate, we reserve the right to reverse such settlement (provided that the VAR decision occurred prior to the conclusion of the match or other timeframe relating to the bet).
    • Bets which are placed between the occurrence of an incident which leads to a VAR review and the related VAR decision will be deemed void unless: (i) the VAR review (and subsequent decision) did not ultimately alter the decision made by the on-field officials or (ii) the VAR review (and subsequent decision) altered the decision made by the on-field officials but did not have any material influence on the bet(s) in question. All bets which were not materially influenced by the VAR review (and subsequent decision) will stand.
    • In order to eliminate any doubt, we will consider the VAR as having been used if this is understood from the referee's gestures (e.g. hand gestures or stopping the match to review the incident themselves) and/or VAR usage is confirmed by the match report issued by the official governing body who is ultimately responsible for oversight of the applicable match. In cases where it is unclear whether the VAR has been used due to missing TV coverage and/or conflicting reports, PPBF will settle the bets based on the information acquired from feed providers and generally reputable online sources (acting reasonably).
    • There is a small possibility that we will inadvertently offer soccer bets in respect of which it is impossible for the outcome to occur (for example, we continue to offer bets on a player to be the first goal scorer in a match after that player has been substituted). While we have implemented systems which aim to prevent this from occurring, in the small number of circumstances where it does, we will void the bets in question (and return the relevant stakes to customers accordingly).
    • The statistics provided by Official OPTA Data will be used to determine the settlement of any bets which are placed on: (i) a given player to achieve a certain number of shots or shots on target, (ii) the total number of offsides awarded in a match or against a particular team, (iii) the total number of shots on target achieved by both sides, or either side, in a match or (iv) the total number of tackles made by either team in a match.
    • Offside is awarded to the player deemed to be in an offside position where a free kick is awarded. If two or more players are in an offside position when the pass is played, the player considered to be most active and trying to play the ball is given offside.
    • With respect to "Tackles", a tackle is defined as where a player connects with the ball in a ground challenge where he successfully takes the ball away from the player in possession.
    • The tackled player must clearly be in possession of the ball before the tackle is made.
    • A tackle won is deemed to be where the tackler or one of his team-mates regains possession as a result of the challenge, or that the ball goes out of play and is "safe".
    • A tackle lost is where a tackle is made but the ball goes to an opposition player.
    • Both are deemed as successful tackles however, the outcome of the tackle (won or lost) is different based on where the ball goes after the tackle.
    • It is not a tackle, when a player cuts out a pass by any means.
    • Missed Tackles is where a player attempts to challenge for the ball and does not make it – it is calculated by adding fouls with an attempted tackle qualifier to the number of times a player is beaten by a dribble (challenge lost).
    • Clearance is a defensive action where a player kicks the ball away from his own goal with no intended recipient.
    • Interception is where a player reads an opponent’s pass and intercepts the ball by moving into the line of the intended pass.
    • Blocked pass is where a player tries to cut out an opposition pass by any means. Similar to an interception except there is much less reading of the pass.
    • Block is where a player blocks a shot on target from an opposing player.
    • If a team is disqualified, thrown out or otherwise removed from a league before the relevant season has started then all bets involving that team will be made void.
    • 'Shirt numbers' bets will refer to the shirt number allocated at the start of the match. 'Shirt numbers' bets will include own-goal scorers. Any player whose shirt bears no number will be allocated the number 12.
    • For 'time of first goal' bets (i.e. "First Goal Odds" markets), the first half is deemed to last 45 minutes, regardless of stoppage time. Also for these markets, please note that the "0 - 10 Minutes" selection covers the first 10 minutes of the match. In other words, it runs from 0:00 until just before the clock hits 10:00. The "11 - 20 Minutes" selection runs from 10:00 until just before the clock hits 20:00. The same principle applies to each of the other selections in this market.
    • For FIFA Man of the Match markets, the market will be settled based on the official '˜Man of the Match' as determined by FIFA. If FIFA fail to declare an official Man of the Match for any reason, all bets will be void.
    • For domestic games live on Sky Sports the market will be settled based on who Sky give the award to during their live broadcast. If no award is made during the live broadcast the result will be settled as the player who is listed as the man of the match in the match report on skysports.com. If the result on skysports.com is different from the result of the Sky live broadcast then the markets will be settled on the result from the live broadcast. For live domestic games on BT Sports, BBC and ITV Man of the match bets will also be settled in accordance to who the broadcaster names during the programme. In the case of games on these channels, if no player is named during the programme then all bets will be voided. The player must be specifically named as the man of the match and not just simply referred to as the man of the match by one of the pundits.
    • For matches that are broadcast live on Sky Sports as well as another channel, preference for settlement will be given to Sky Sports unless Betfair have specifically outlined in the naming of the market that the result will be settled on the official tournament or sponsor award.
    • Likewise an official tournament or sponsor award outlined in the naming of the market take precedence over the BT, BBC, and ITV pundit's award.
    • Any player who takes the field for any part of a match will be deemed as a runner for settlement purposes. Only players not in the squad or unused substitutes will be deemed non-runners.
    • Anytime Score markets, If one or more of the players do not participate in the game, then they will be deemed non-runners and the original price will be reduced by the price of the said player(s), and settled according to the performance of the remaining selection(s). Players will be deemed a participant in the listed market should they enter the game at any point in 90 minutes play plus injury time
    • For First/Last Goalscorer markets:
      • All bets placed on players that do not take part in the match will be void. Bets placed on players who take the pitch after the first goal is scored will be voided for First/Last Goalscorer purposes. Players will be deemed a participant for Last Goalscorer and Anytime Scorer markets should they enter the game at any point in 90 minutes play plus injury time.
      • Own goals do not count and will be ignored for settlement purposes. Effort will be made to quote all participants but that will not discount a player that is not quoted from being settled a winner. Bets will only apply to 90 minutes play plus injury time.
      • The following markets will also follow the rules applied to Anytime Scorer betting above:
        • To Score 2 or More

    • For each way First Goalscorer markets:
      • Each-way bets will be settled on first goal, second goal, third goal, fourth goal and fifth goal only. Players who do not score until after the fifth goal has been scored will be treated as losing selections. If less than five goals are scored in any given match, Betfair will settle bets on the basis of those goals that are scored. If no goals are scored, all each-way bets will be regarded as losing bets.
      • If a player enters the field of play after the first goal is scored, both the win and place part of the bet will be voided unless the first goal is an own goal (in which case bets will stand). If a player is sent off or substituted before the first goal is scored, bets on that selection are deemed as losers.
      • If a player scores the first goal of the match, both his win and place part are winners. If a player scores the second, third, fourth or fifth goal, only his place part is a winner.
      • A player cannot be placed twice (i.e. if he scores the second and third goal, only the second goal is deemed a winner).
      • Each-way bets on no goalscorer, last goalscorer, first team goalscorers and scorecasts are not accepted. If any such bets are taken in error then the full stake will be invested as a win only bet.
      • Place-only betting is not accepted.
      • Extra time does not count.
      • Own goals do not count. In cases where an own goal is one of the first five goals then the sixth goal will be settled as a winner on the place part of the each-way bet. If two of the first five goals are own goals then the sixth and seventh goals will be settled as winners on the place part of the each-way bet, etc. In all other cases, Betfair's Soccer rules apply.
    • For '˜Tournament Hat-trick' markets, extra-time is included, however penalty shoot-outs and own goals are not included. In the event of any dispute as to who has scored any goal we will follow the decision made by the relevant governing body.
    • For Scorecast markets:
      • Scorecasts are defined as First Player to Score / Correct Score Doubles.
      • Players either not taking part in the game or taking part after a goal has been scored will cause a Scorecast bet to revert to a single on the correct score market at the relevant odds offered at kick-off. Should the initial goal (or goals) be own goals then bets on the subsequent Scorer / Correct Score Double will be deemed winners. If the only goals scored in the match are own goals then bets will be settled as singles on the Correct Score market at the relevant odds offered at kick-off. Should a match be abandoned after a goal has been scored then all bets will be settled as singles on the First Goalscorer market at the relevant odds offered at kick-off.
    • For Wincast markets:
      • Wincasts are defined as the correct first goalscorer AND the correct result double.
      • Should a player not have taken the field by the time the first goal has been scored then bets will be settled as singles on the Match Odds market at the relevant odds offered at kick-off.
      • Should the initial goal (or goals) be own goals then bets on the subsequent Scorer / Result Double will be deemed winners.
    • For 'Top Goalscorer' markets:
      • all bets stand irrespective of whether or not the player takes any part in the relevant league, tournament or competition. If there is any dispute as to who has scored a particular goal, we will follow the decision made by the relevant governing body.
      • For Euro 2020, the top goal scorer market will be settled on the basis of the player who scored the most goals and not the Golden Boot, therefore Dead Heat rules apply. For Euro 2020 top goal scorer, goals scored in extra-time are included, however goals scored in penalty shoot-outs are not included.
      • only the goals scored in the relevant league, tournament or competition count. For example, if a player joins a club mid-season any goals scored in a different league will not count. However goals scored for a different club in the same league will count. Own goals will not count
      • any goals scored in Play-Off matches will not count.
      • goals scored in extra-time are included, however goals scored in penalty shoot-outs are not included
    • 'Mythical Match' markets:
      • "Mythical Match" bets are offered on the highest number of goals, corners or yellow cards (as applicable) achieved by, or awarded to, two teams who are playing in different matches. For example, where matches are due to occur between Team A and Team B (on the one hand) and Team C and Team D (on the other), we might offer a Mythical Match Market on whether, within those matches, Team A scores more goals, or is awarded more corners or yellow cards, than Team C (even though those teams are playing in separate matches).
      • If both teams score the same number of goals, achieve the same number of corners or are awarded the same number of yellow cards (as applicable), the draw is the winning selection.
      • The respective next fixtures of both teams will be displayed on our website.
      • If a team's next fixture is played on a different day from that displayed on our website, all Mythical Match bets involving such team will be void.
      • Each relevant team's applicable fixture must be completed and have its result upheld by the competition's official governing body (e.g. the FA Premier League or FIFA) in order for mythical match bets between those teams to stand.
      • In the case of a fixture not starting or being shortened due to external factors (e.g. unplayable conditions, security concerns, technical faults) all mythical match bets involving either of the two competing teams will be void.
      • If a match official shortens a match for any reason (e.g. foul play) all mythical match bets involving either of the two competing teams will be void.
    • 'Shots on Target' markets:
      • for any bets involving a given player to achieve a number of shots on target, the final determination by Official OPTA Data will be used to determine the number of shots on target which the relevant player achieved.
      • A shot on target is defined as any goal attempt that:
        • Goes into the net regardless of intent; or
        • Is a clear attempt to score that would have gone into the net but for being saved by the goalkeeper or is stopped by a player who is the last-man with the goalkeeper having no chance of preventing the goal (last line block).
      • Shots directly hitting the frame of the goal are not counted as shots on target, unless the ball goes in and is awarded as a goal.
      • Shots blocked by another player, who is not the last-man, are not counted as shots on target.
      • All shots on target bets are settled on the basis of 90 minutes play (plus injury time) unless otherwise stated.
      • For any player shots/shots on target bets, all bets placed on players that do not take part in the match will be void. Players will be deemed a participant should they enter the game at any point in 90 minutes play plus injury time.
    • For "Player not to score" markets, Players who are not on the field at the beginning of 90 minutes play will not be considered runners in this market and be settled as void.
    • In markets which relate to the number of incidents to occur, such as 'number of corners', these will be determined on the basis of the number taken, rather than awarded. This will also apply to incidents where time is a consideration.
    • "Team Multi Corner" markets are those which are offered on the number of first half team corners multiplied by the number of second half team corners.
    • For markets that relate to the number of bookings given, the number of corners taken, any goalscorer or the time of a particular goal, the result will be determined by Betfair (acting reasonably) using information from independent sources. In such cases, if any new information comes into the public domain within 72 hours of settlement, then Betfair shall (acting reasonably) determine either:
      1. whether the market should be reinstated or resettled in light of this new information; or
      2. to wait for further information before deciding whether to reinstate or resettle the market. Except where Betfair has announced that it is waiting for further information, any information that comes into the public domain more than 72 hours after a market has been settled shall not be considered by Betfair (regardless of whether or not such information may have led to a different result).
    • For combined shots on target markets, the bet will be void if any player named in the selection plays no part in the match, regardless of the overall outcome.
    • For Over/Under Total Card markets, the maximum number of cards awarded to one player is two. Yellow Card = 1. Red Card = 1. Yellow Card + Yellow Card (Sending Off) = 2 Cards.
    • For Bookings markets the following points system will be used:
      • Yellow card - 10pts
      • Red card - 25pts
      • Maximum points awarded per player - 35pts
      • Two yellow cards leading to an automatic red will score as one yellow and one red card
    • For Bookings markets, only cards shown to players on the active field of play will count towards this total. If a card is shown to a substitute who is not on the active field of play at the time of this card, it will not count towards any totals. Cards shown after the full time whistle will also not count towards any totals.
    • For 'Shown a Card' markets, the player does not need to play the full match and bets will stand if the player plays any part in the match. Bets will be void on any player that does not play any part in the match. In any dispute over whether or not a card was shown, Betfair will settle the market when the ruling body has given its verdict. Subsequent appeals or rulings will not be considered. Cards will only count which are shown to players after they take the pitch for the first time and before they leave the pitch for the final time.
    • For 'Player Carded' markets, all bets placed on players that do not take part in the match will be void. Players will be deemed a participant for Player Carded markets should they enter the game at any point in 90 minutes play plus injury time. In any dispute over whether or not a card was shown, Betfair will settle the market when the ruling body has given its verdict. Subsequent appeals or rulings will not be considered.
    • For ‘Player in Each Half’ markets, you are betting on a nominated player to achieve the stated stipulation in both the first half and second half:
      • If the nominated player achieves the stated stipulation in the selection, then the selection will be settled as a winner (e.g. if the selection is Harry Kane to have 1 or more assists in each half and he has an assist in the first half and an assist in the second half, this would be settled as a winner).
      • If the nominated player plays no part in the first half of the match, or indeed any part of the match, then the selection is void (e.g. if the selection is Harry Kane to score 1 or more goals in both halves and Harry Kane is a substitute, but comes on during or after half time, or plays no part whatsoever, the selection would be void).
      • If the nominated player plays any part of the first half, and fails to achieve the stated first half stipulation, then the selection is a loser regardless of the duration of their participation in either the first or second half (e.g. if the selection is Harry Kane to have 1 or more shots on target in each half, and he starts the match/comes on during the first half and fails to register a shot on target during the first half, this selection will be a loser regardless of his participation in the second half).
      • If the nominated player plays any part of the first half, and does achieve the stated stipulation but is subsequently withdrawn before or during half time and plays no part in the second half, then this selection will be void (e.g. if the selection is Harry Kane to score 1 or more goals in each half & assist 1 or more goals in each half, and he scores AND assists in the first half but is withdrawn before or during half time i.e. plays no part in the second half, then the selection is void. In this instance however, if he scored but didn’t assist in the first half, the selection would be a loser, as it marries up with the point above).
    • If a team is relegated from a league because, at the end of a season, it has finished within the relegation positions which are relevant to that league (i.e. usually any of the bottom three league positions), bets on that team to be relegated will be settled as winning bets. If a team is otherwise disqualified, thrown out or removed from a league (i.e. in circumstances other than those where it has finished the season within the relevant relegation positions): (i) if such team is disqualified, thrown out or removed from the league before the relevant season has started, all bets on the affected market will be void (and a new market will subsequently be loaded) and (ii) if such team is disqualified, thrown out or removed from the league after the relevant season has started (or a determination is made by the applicable governing body, during the season, that the team will be thrown out or removed from the league following the season's conclusion), all bets on the affected team will be void. For the avoidance of doubt, if a points deduction is imposed on a team such that it finishes the season within the relegation places which are relevant to the applicable league, bets on that team to be relegated will be settled as winning bets.
    • For 'Rock Bottom' markets, all teams must complete all their league fixtures for bets to stand. If one or more teams do not complete all their fixtures for any reason this market will be void. Any fixture that is abandoned, but an official result is awarded, will be classified as a completed fixture, and bets on this market will stand. Any subsequent amendments to league tables after all games have been completed will not affect settlement of this market.
    • For Handicap Win and Handicap Bottom markets, goal difference does not count.
    • For 'Top at Christmas' and '˜Bottom at Christmas' markets, the market will be settled based on league position as of 25th December regardless of games played and any postponements and/or abandonments. For 'Bottom at Christmas' markets, if a listed team is disqualified, thrown out or otherwise removed from the league prior to the 25th December, all bets will be made void on the relevant market.
    • For Top Team from a particular Continent or other selection (for example Top South American, European or African Team), the market will be settled on the team that progressed furthest. Should two named teams play each other in the Final or 3rd/4th Playoff, the winner of the match will be deemed as having progressed furthest. Dead Heat rules apply if two or more teams, which have progressed furthest in a particular market, exit in the tournament at the same stage.
    • For Team Scoring Most Goals, Team Conceding Most Goals, Team Shown Most Cards, Total Tournament Goals, Team Top Goalscorer, Total Tournament Hat-tricks and City With Most Goals markets, extra-time is included, however penalty shoot-outs are not included.
    • For Team Shown Most Cards markets, only one card will count for a second bookable offence. If a yellow card shown is immediately followed by a red card shown the total number of cards shown will count as one. Therefore the maximum number of cards issued to any one player in a match will be two.
    • For Player to Score a Goal, Player to Miss a Penalty and Player to Be Sent Off markets in respect of a particular tournament all bets will STAND irrespective of whether or not the player takes part during this tournament. Extra-time is included for such markets, however penalty shoot-outs are only included for Player to Miss a Penalty market and not for the other two. In the event of any dispute as to who has scored any goal we will follow the decision made by the relevant governing body.
    • For "next goalscorer markets", "first, second, third etc goalscorer markets" or any other market relating to a particular specified goalscorer (including "player to score a goal markets), own goals will not be taken into account. Should the (next) goal be an own goal then bets on the subsequent Scorer will be deemed winners. The active goalscorer market will always be representative of the next goal to be scored in the game regardless of the previous goal being an own goal.
    • For Goalscorer Match Bets markets, the market will be settled on the player who scores the most goals in their respective games out of the players listed (the listed players may or may not be playing in the same game). The "tie" will be the winning selection should both players score the same number of goals or both players not score. Both players must start (but need not finish) their respective games for bets to stand. Own goals will not count.
    • For "Anytime Correct Score" markets: This market offers betting on the chosen selection being the score at any time within 90 minutes of the match plus any injury time added. Where a match is 0-0 at the end of 90 minutes plus any injury time added, all selections will be losers. Extra time does not count.
    • For "˜Extra Time Correct Score" markets - this market applies to the result during the extra time period only. For the purposes of this market, the score shall be deemed 0-0 at the start of the extra time period.
    • For "˜10 Minute Markets":-
      • "Goal Scored X - Y" markets are defined as betting on whether there will be a goal scored by one of the teams within the time period X - Y of the event's match clock. Only goals scored within that timeframe will count for settlement.
      • "Corner Awarded X - Y" markets are defined as betting on whether there will be a corner awarded to one of the teams within the time period X - Y of the event's match clock. Only goals scored within that timeframe will count for settlement.
      • "Card Shown X - Y" markets are defined as betting on whether there will be a yellow or red card shown to a player within the time period X - Y of the event's match clock. Only goals scored within that timeframe will count for settlement.
    • Please be aware that although the current score, time elapsed and other data provided on the Betfair site is sourced from a "live" feed provided by a third party, you should be aware that this data may be subject to a time delay and/or be inaccurate. If you rely on this data to place bets, you do so entirely at your own risk. Betfair provides this data "AS IS" with no warranty as to the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of such data and accepts no responsibility for any loss (direct or indirect) suffered by you as a result of your reliance on it.
    • For all Monthly Premier League Markets:
      • Betfair will use the standard Barclays Premier League competition format adjusted to treat each month as a separate competition beginning the 1st of the relevant month and ending at the final whistle of the final match of that month ("Month End").
      • On the 1st of every month, each premier league team is deemed to have no points accrued, goals scored or goals conceded
      • Each Monthly Premier League Market, will be determined using the following points rules:
        1. Teams receive three points for a win
        2. One point for a draw
        3. No points are awarded for a loss
        4. Teams will be ranked by total points, then goal difference and then goals scored
        5. If after this there is still a tie between teams the Dead Heat Rule will apply.
      • Any postponed or rescheduled games will be included in the monthly market in which they are played and not the month in which they were originally scheduled. Bets will not be voided on any selection affected by any postponed or rescheduled games.
      • If the result of an abandoned or forfeited match is determined by the Premier League governing body, Betfair will follow that result provided always that the result is determined before Month End, otherwise Betfair will settle the Monthly Premier League Market based on the result as known at Month End (including by allotted 0 points to both teams if the result is unknown).
      • Except for the reversal of match results in accordance with the rule above, any points deductions issued by the Premier League governing body (for example for teams going into administration) will not be taken into account by Betfair in the Monthly Premier League Market.
    • '˜Quickbet' markets:
      • Settlement in all cases will use the time of the event supplied to us by our data provider (such data provider to be selected by us at our absolute discretion from time to time).
      • If none of the stated outcomes occur during the stated period, all bets will be settled as losing bets.
      • For the 'goal' selection, a goal will be deemed to have been scored the moment the ball completely crosses the goal-line within the confines of the goal posts, provided that the referee ultimately awards the goal. For example, if the ball completely crosses the goal-line but the goal is not awarded because, for example a foul occurred before the ball crossed the line or because the referee did not believe that the ball did cross the line, then a goal will not be deemed to have been scored. Own goals scored will count towards settlement of this market.
      • For the '˜free kick' selection, a free-kick will be deemed to have been awarded the moment the referee and or assistant referee signal any of the following: A direct free-kick following a foul, an indirect free-kick following a foul or offside offence but not a penalty kick, corner or drop ball.
      • Direct Free Kick for Goals / Shots – direct free kick shots are any attempts created directly from the free kick itself.
      • For the 'corner' selection, a corner will be deemed to have been awarded the moment the referee and or assistant referee signal for the award of a corner.
      • For the 'goal kick' selection, a goal kick is awarded and timed according to when it was indicated by the referee and/or assistant referees. A kick out from the hands of the goalkeeper or a free kick taken by the goalkeeper is not a goal-kick.
      • For the 'throw in' selection, a throw in will be deemed to have been awarded the moment the referee and or assistant referee signal the award of the throw in.
      • For markets where "hit the woodwork is offered", this will be defined as the ball making contact with any part of the posts or crossbar from an attempt on the opponent's goal during active play. Shots that hit the woodwork on their way into the goal will count.where the ball hits the frame of the goal, except goals that hit the frame before going into the net. Any shot that hits the frame multiple times (e.g. bar and left post) only count as hitting the woodwork once. Hit woodwork is always collected for the attacking team (and the player, who performed the last action), even when the ball hits the frame coming from a defensive back pass.
      • For '˜Exactacca' markets, all bets are for 90 minutes only, extra time and penalties will not count. If a player at any stage participates in the game they will be deemed a runner in the market. If a player does not participate, relevant selections will be void, and the bets settled at the combined price of the remaining selections.
      • First & Anytime assist markets:
        • Settlement of this market will be taken from Opta.
        • Where Opta do not offer a result for the assist of the 1st goal then the betting will apply for the 2nd goal and continue on to the 3rd goal etc (until an assist is awarded for a goal).
        • If a player wins a penalty or a free kick that leads to a goal, it does not count as an assist.
        • Bets taken on the first assist will be void if the player on whom a bet is placed does not take part in the game or if he or she comes on after the first goal is scored (and where an assist is awarded for that goal).
        • For the first assist market only, if a player enters the field of play after the first goal is scored (and where an assist is awarded for that goal), the bet will be voided. If a player is sent off or substituted before the first goal is scored (and where an assist is awarded for that goal) bets on that selection will be settled as losing bets.
        • As determined by Opta’s settlement guidelines, goal assist means the final touch (pass, pass-cum-shot or any other touch) leading to the recipient of the ball scoring a goal. If the final touch (as defined in bold) is deflected by an opposition player, the initiator is only given a goal assist if the receiving player was likely to receive the ball without the deflection having taken place. Own goals, directly taken free kicks, direct corner goals and penalties do not get an assist awarded.
    • Soccer #OddsOnThat Markets:
      • The rules in this sub-section apply specifically to the settlement of any soccer bets which are placed via #OddsOnThat (OOT). All other settlement rules which are included in this Soccer section or elsewhere on this website (including in these Rules and Regulations) will also apply to the settlement of OOT bets unless they contradict, or conflict with, those included in this sub-section (in which case, the rules in this sub-section shall take precedence).
      • All OOT bets are settled on the basis of 90 minutes play (plus injury time) unless otherwise stated. Extra time and penalties will not count, except when the phrases 'To Qualify', 'Lift The Trophy' or 'Win The Tie' are quoted. For all multiple bets which involve one or more bets including such phrases, the remaining bets (i.e. which do not include such phrases) will be settled on the basis of 90 minutes' play (plus injury time) unless stated otherwise.
      • If any player who is part of an OOT bet does not take any part in the relevant match (or does not fulfil the conditions of the bet), then the whole OOT bet shall be voided. This will apply in all cases regardless if any/all of the remaining components win or lose.
      • Any dubious goals will be awarded according to the final determination of the Press Association.
      • Own goals do not count towards any player totals. If an own goal is scored by a player on Team A, the goal will be added to Team B’s total goals as per normal rules.
      • For OOT bets which have been placed on the method of the first (or any other) goal (e.g. header, shot from outside the penalty area etc), any own goals will be disregarded (i.e. for the purposes of such any such bets, own goals will be deemed not to have occurred). For example, if you have placed an OOT bet on the first goal to be scored via a header, your bet will be successful if: (i) the first goal was an own goal which came off a player's knee and (ii) the second goal was an ordinary goal scored via a header.
      • For any outright OOT bets placed on the top goal scorer of a Premier League season, the bets will be settled on the basis of the player who is awarded the Golden Boot.
      •  For any outright WOP bets placed on the top goal scorer of Euro 2020, the bets will be settled on the basis of the player who scored the most goals and not the Golden Boot, therefore Dead Heat rules apply. For Euro 2020 top goal scorer, goals scored in extra-time are included, however goals scored in penalty shoot-outs are not included.
      • Any OOT bets involving woodwork to be hit require that the ball must hit a goalpost or the crossbar during active play. If the ball hits the woodwork after the referee has stopped play, then it will not count. If the ball hits the woodwork twice or more in succession, each connection with the woodwork will count separately.
      • For OOT bets on a player NOT to score or NOT to be carded, the player in question MUST start the match or the applicable bet(s) shall be voided.
      • If a football match is abandoned after it has started, we will settle any OOT bets which have already been unequivocally determined at the time on which the match is abandoned. Any OOT bets which have not been unequivocally determined at the time of abandonment will be void unless Betfair has knowledge that the match has been rescheduled to be played within three days of its original start date (in which circumstances the bet shall apply to the rescheduled match).
      • Any OOT Bets on the last goalscorer of a match will be void if that match is abandoned.
      • For OOT bets involving goal kicks, only goal kicks which are actually taken will count towards the cumulative goal kick count (i.e. any goal kicks which are awarded but not taken will not count).
      • For OOT bets involving two or more occurrences, those occurrences must take place at separate times for the OOT bet to be successful. For example, an OOT bet on a header to be scored and a goal to be scored from outside the penalty area will only be successful if a goal is scored via a header and separate goal is scored from outside the penalty area.
      • Any OOT bets involving free-kick goals must be scored directly from a free-kick. For the avoidance of doubt, a goal will be deemed to have been scored directly from a free kick if the individual who takes the free kick is awarded the applicable goal (even if the ball touched another player before it crossed the goal line). Penalties do not count as free kicks.
      • For any bets involving a penalty to be scored and/or missed (including OOT bets), if there is a retake of the first penalty we will settle this market on the result of the retaken penalty. This may include several retakes until the sequence is finished.
      • For any OOT bets involving assists, the final determination of Statbunker.com will be used to determine who made the assist.
      • For any OOT bets involving a given player to achieve a number of shots on target, the final determination by Official OPTA Data will be used to determine the number of shots on target which the relevant player achieved.
      • Any OOT bets involving total passes, total player passes or total possession will be determined in accordance with the final determination of the official website of the relevant competition's governing body.
      • Pass shall mean any intentional played ball from one player to another. Passes include open play passes, goal kicks, corners and free kicks played as pass – but exclude crosses, keeper throws and throw-ins. For more information on types of passes please visit: https://www.optasports.com/news/opta-s-event-definitions/
      • For any OOT bets involving players to be carded, only cards awarded once the player is active in the match will count. Any cards shown after the final whistle will not count.
      • For any OOT bets involving booking points: a yellow card will be worth 10 points and a red card will be worth 25 points. However, if a player receives two yellow cards and is consequently shown a red card, the player will receive a total of 35 booking points for the relevant game. Extra-time does not count nor do cards shown after the final whistle count towards the total. Only cards shown to players currently on the field of play will count. Cards shown to managers or substitutes will not count towards any total.
      • For any OOT bets placed on the total number of cards to be awarded (e.g. in total, to a team or to a single player / group of players), a player who has been shown two yellow cards (and is therefore ultimately shown a red card) or a player who is shown a yellow card followed by a straight red card will, for settlement purposes, be deemed in each case to have been shown two (rather than three) cards. For the avoidance of a doubt, the award of a straight red card will, for settlement purposes, be deemed to amount to the award of a single card.
      • For any OOT bets involving corners, only corners that are actually taken will count. If a corner is re-taken, it will only count as one corner.
      • For any OOT bets relating to any competition long specials, in the event of one or more matches not being played, any selections that require an event (goal, corner etc.) to occur in each match will be settled at a reduced price in line with the actual number of matches that were played.
      • For any OOT bets relating to any specials involving players who play no part in the competition, these will be void.
      • Where an obvious pricing error has occurred, we reserve the right to cancel any OOT bets placed at the incorrect price (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the OOT bet to be re-placed at the correct price)
      • For any obvious wording errors, we reserve the right to cancel any OOT bets placed on that selection (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the OOT bet to be re-placed with the correct wording).
      • Any OOT bets requiring 2 teams to score in each half or to score 2+ or 3+ goals require each named team to score 2+, 3+ or in each half as appropriate.
      • The Maximum payout for an OOT bet is £/€ 100,000. This maximum applies to any single OOT bet or any multiple which includes an OOT bet.

    • In the case of any settlement disputes, Betfair's decision is final.
    • In the event of a change in the number of sets (or games per set) to be played, match bets (i.e. bets placed on the winner of a given match excluding, for the avoidance of doubt, any handicap bets) and "To Win First Set" bets will stand (save where the number of sets is reduced to one from a higher number of sets, in which case such bets will be voided). All bets other markets will be void. Where the format of the final set is changed (e.g. the number of games to be played in that set is changed) but the number of sets to be played remains the same, bets for match betting markets will stand.
    • In the event of a tennis event not taking place or if a player is given a walkover, bets on the event are deemed void (in this context, "event" refers to a single match-up between players, rather than the tournament itself).

      • For the purpose of bets taken relating to Total Games market or Game Handicaps markets for the match, the champions tie-break will be considered to be one game.
      • A Champions tie-break will not count towards any 'Will there be a Tie-Break' markets and will not be treated as a tie-break for any markets involving the occurrence of a number of tie-breaks.

    • How does Each Way Betting work on the Outright market?
      • When viewing an Outright Betting market for a Tennis Tournament you will see notation similar to following. 'Each Way terms: 2 places, 1/2 odds.'
        '2 places' means when you place an each way bet it will pay on 1st and 2nd place.
        The 1/2 odds refers to the odds for the place rather than the win. You can calculate this by taking the odds displayed on-site, the minus 1, then multiple by 1/2. Finally, you add the $1 back on. For example:
        A player has odds of £5 to win the tournament. To calcualte place odds;
        £5 - £1 = £4
        £4 x 1/2 = £2
        £2 + £1 = £3
        The odds for the player to place, in this case, is £3.
  33. Volleyball

    • In case of a match being postponed it will be voided unless it takes places within 36 hours of the initial scheduled starting time.
    • All markets will be settled with the final result by volleyball rules. The only exceptions are for matches that are agreed by the laws of the competition in which they are competing or agreed by both sides prior to kick-off. In such cases, all bets will be settled at the end of the agreed rules.
    • In the event of a match starting but not being completed then all markets will be void, unless an official result is declared, in which case all bets will stand.
    • The name/heading of a competition amounts to evidence of what a bet refers to. For example, if you place a bet on "Italy vs Brazil" under the competition name/heading U20 World Cup, the bet will apply to the match between Italy and Brazil which is part of the U20 World Cup.
  34. Water polo

    • In case of a match being postponed it will be voided unless it takes place within 36 hours of the initial scheduled starting time.
    • Overtime does NOT count for any markets unless otherwise stated.
    • Should a match be abandoned all markets will be voided unless the outcome has been unequivocally decided.
  35. Winter sports (which include all Winter Olympic Sports)

    • If there is no presentation ceremony, outcomes will be determined in accordance with the official result of the relevant governing body, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result (except if an amendment is announced within 24 hours of the initial settlement of the relevant market in order to correct an error in reporting the result).
    • "Outright" markets relate to the winner of the overall event and not for individual qualifiers or heats.
    • For "Head-to-Head" markets, outcomes will be determined in accordance with the official result of the relevant governing body. If either or both athletes do not make the final, the winner will be deemed to be the athlete who progressed furthest by round, and if still undecided, then by time achieved in the round in which both were eliminated. All bets are void if any athlete in a match/group bet fails to compete.
    • If an event is abandoned, postponed or cancelled, all bets will be void unless the event is completed at the same venue within 48 hours of the official scheduled completion date.
  36. WWE

    • All settlements are based on results provided by the relevant governing body: www.wwe.com

Part D - Sportsbook Specials

  1. Football Transfer Specials

    1. 1.1Player to transfer or not to transfer by set date market

      • Loan deals do count as transfers for settlement purposes.
      • If a player does not move club within a specified time window, bets placed on that player to move club will stand and will be settled as losers. In such circumstances, any bets placed on the player to stay at his or her club will be settled as winners.
      • If the player signs for a club that isn't quoted in the market, all bets placed on that player to move to a specified club will stand and will be settled as losers. Extra clubs can be added to markets by customer request.
      • Should an agreement be reached for a player to transfer to a new club on a future date, the player will, for settlement purposes, be deemed to have transferred on the date at which the agreement is completed (rather than the date on which the player transfers to his/her new club). For example, if, on 1 January, Player X signs an agreement to transfer from Club A to Club B with effect from 1 June, Player X will, for settlement purposes, be deemed to have transferred to Club B on 1 January.
      • In cases where it is unclear whether a deal has been completed before a deadline, we reserve the right to delay settlement until official confirmation has been received from governing bodies.
      • The player must be registered to the club in question before the specified time frame ends. Pre-contracts or other similar agreements that signal business to be completed at a date later than specified will not count.
      • When a player moves to a club, and is then immediately loaned out to another club, we will settle on the club that has signed the player permanently and not the loanee club.
    2. 1.2Next Manager Markets (club or country):

      • Betfair will select a list of potential new managers at its discretion. Other selections will be available on request. Should a manager not listed be appointed, all bets will stand.
      • Caretaker and interim managers will not count unless they complete at least 10 competitive games and they will then be deemed the permanent manager.
      • Should a club appoint a director of football this will not count in the settlement of permanent manager markets.
      • In the event that a club changes the structure of their management team and does not call the appointed individual first team manager, Betfair Sportsbook will settle the market based on the individual who is responsible for selecting the first team.
  2. Live Special Market Rules

    1. 2.1First Goalscorer 3pm Kick Offs (GMT +1)

      • Which player from this list will score first from the Premier League games kicking off at 3pm (Scheduled)? The result will be determined by the time on the match clock, not by the actual time. For example, if a game (Game A) actually kicks off at 15:03:00 and the first goal in that game is 15:07:01, the goal will be settled as the 5th minute. And a game (Game B) that kicks off at 15:00:00 and the first goal in that game 15:05:01, the goal is settled as the 6th minute, meaning that Game A would have the first goalscorer. Dead Heat rules apply if the first goal is scored by more than one player in the same minute of their respective games. Bets on players who take no part in the match or who come on as a substitute after the first goal is scored will be void. Own goals do not count for this market. If any of the 3pm games are postponed all bets will be void. If any of the 3pm games are abandoned before half time all bets will be void, unless the result has already been determined. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.
    2. 2.2Time of first goal - 3pm Kick Offs (GMT +1)

      • In which minute will the first Premier League goal for this week's 3pm (Scheduled) kick offs be scored? For 'time of first goal' bets (i.e. "First Goal Odds" markets), the first half is deemed to last 45 minutes, regardless of stoppage time. Also for these markets, please note that the "0 - 5 Minutes" selection covers the first 5 minutes of the match. In other words, it runs from 0:00 until just before the clock hits 05:00. The "6 - 10 Minutes" selection runs from 05:00 until just before the clock hits 10:00. The same principle applies to each of the other selections in this market. If any of the 3pm games are postponed all bets will be void. If any of the 3pm games are abandoned before half time all bets will be void, unless the result has already been determined. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.
    3. 2.3All League or torunament games to have over 0.5/1.5/2.5 goals

      • If one or more of the matches do not go ahead, then they will be deemed non-runners and the original price will be reduced by the price of the said match(es) For example, "All League 1 Over 1.5 goals" - There are 5 matches due to play and they've all been enhanced to 1.2 (1/5) for over 1.5 goals to make an enhanced fivefold of 2.49 (just under 6/4). If one of the teams does not play, then the bet price will be reduced to 2.07. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.
    4. 2.4Total Goals scored in a league, multiple leagues or tournaments

      • If a match or matches are postponed following the market being published then the goal expectancy for these matches will be removed and a new total will be created. All bets placed prior to the postponement will stand, but will be settled according to the new total. For example, "Over 72.5 goals in 3pm FA Cup" - Newport C v Portsmouth is abandoned and goal expectancy for this match is 3 goals, then the line will moved from Over 72.5 goals to Over 69.5 goals. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.
    5. 2.5Penalty Awarded in the 3pm Kick Offs (GMT +1)

      • Will a penalty be awarded in the week's Premier League 3pm (Scheduled) Kick Offs? If any of the 3pm games are postponed all bets will be void. If any of the 3pm games are abandoned before half time all bets will be void, unless the result has already been determined. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.
    6. 2.6Red card awarded in the 3pm Kick Offs (GMT +1)

      • Will there be a red card awarded in the week's Premier League 3pm (Scheduled) Kick Offs? Will a player be shown a red card during this match? Cards will only count that are shown to players after they take the pitch for the first time and before they leave the pitch for the final time. If any of the 3pm games are postponed all bets will be void. If any of the 3pm games are abandoned before half time all bets will be void, unless the result has already been determined. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.
    7. 2.7First team to receive a red card in the 3pm Kick offs? (GMT +1)

      • Which team will be awarded the first red card in this week's Premier League 3pm (Scheduled) Kick Offs? The result will be determined by the time on the match clock. If any of the 3pm games are postponed all bets will be void. If any of the 3pm games are abandoned before half time all bets will be void, unless the result has already been determined. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.
    8. 2.8Goal scored in the first 5 mins of the 3pm Kick Offs? (GMT +1)

      • Will there be a goal in the first 5 minutes in any of this week's Premier League 3pm Kick Offs? The first 5 minutes is deemed to be 0:00 to just before the clock hits 05:00 on the match clock. If any of the 3pm games are postponed all bets will be void. If any of the 3pm games are abandoned before half time all bets will be void, unless the result has already been determined. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.
    9. 2.9Goalscorer Match Bets - 3pm Kick Offs? (GMT +1)

      • For Goalscorer Match Bets markets, the market will be settled on the player who scores the most goals in their respective games out of the players listed (the listed players may or may not be playing in the same game). The "tie" will be the winning selection should both players score the same number of goals or both players not score. Both players must start (but need not finish) their respective games for bets to stand. Own goals will not count. All bets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. Extra-time/penalty shoot-outs are not included.

RULES AND REGULATIONS

Exchange Rules

PART A — INTRODUCTION

  1. Use and interpretation

    The Betfair Exchange Rules and Regulations ("Exchange Rules") are part of Betfair's terms and conditions.

    The Exchange Rules apply to all bets placed on Betfair’s Exchange markets. The Exchange Rules also apply to Betfair’s Exchange ’Multiples’ product (see the Multiples section below for further details). The Exchange Rules do not apply to markets offered or bets placed on the Betfair Sportsbook or on Betfair’s ‘Fixed Odds’ product. The Exchange Rules consist of the following:

    • This INTRODUCTION section (Part A);
    • The GENERAL RULES (set out in Part B below);
    • The SPECIFIC SPORTS RULES (set out in Part C below – these apply to certain sports and to financial markets); and
    • The MARKET INFORMATION (located on every Betfair market either under the tab entitled "Rules" or under the ‘Rules’ or ‘i’ button).

    The General Rules apply to all bets unless stated otherwise in the Market Information or the Specific Sports Rules. If there is any inconsistency between the Specific Sports Rules and the General Rules, the Specific Sports Rules shall prevail. If there is any inconsistency between the Market Information and either the General Rules or the Specific Sports Rules, the Market Information shall prevail, except where the General Rules or Specific Sports Rules use the phrase 'regardless of what it says in the Market Information' or similar wording.

    For any category or market not referred to in the Specific Sports Rules (e.g. ’Special Bets’ or beach volleyball), the General Rules and Market Information will apply.

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

  2. Market information

    The Market Information is provided for information purposes as an at-a-glance guide on how Betfair intends to manage the market. The Market Information may also contain rules on market settlement, however it must always be read in conjunction with the General Rules and the relevant Specific Sports Rules and a link to this Rules and Regulations page will usually be provided in the Market Information for each market.

    Whilst the Market Information may give a guide to how markets will be managed, regardless of what it says in the Market Information, Betfair reserves the right to suspend any market at any time at its sole discretion, including in order to carry out necessary administration and/or to take any necessary action to protect Betfair customers.

    Betfair shall not amend the Market Information after a market has been loaded except to correct obvious errors and/or to add wording to clarify the Market Information where appropriate.

  3. Customer responsibility

    Betfair customers should make themselves aware of all of the Exchange Rules affecting any market on which they wish to place a bet. Customers should not simply rely on the Market Information as the Market Information is unlikely to contain all of the applicable rules relating to a market.

    By their nature ‘Special Bets’ markets are unpredictable so should be treated with particular caution. Customers are responsible for managing their own positions at all times in such markets. Customers should pay particular attention to the Market Information on ‘Special Bets’ markets to ensure they understand the basis on which the market will be administered and settled.

  4. Customer betting disputes & IBAS

    Any customer disputes regarding any bet or market settlement will be resolved in accordance with the Betfair Dispute Resolution Policy, see here. Following an IBAS (or equivalent) ruling Betfair reserves the right at its discretion to take appropriate action which may include, amongst other things, the following options: (a) reversing settlement for all bets placed on the relevant market, including making adjustments to customers' accounts where necessary; or (b) paying out any customer who placed a bet on the market their 'net position' if that customer would have been in a better position had the market been settled as IBAS recommended (for example, if a customer would have won more money had the market been settled in that way, that customer will be paid the difference between what they originally received when the market was settled and the amount they would have won had the market been settled as IBAS recommended).

Part B — GENERAL RULES

  1. Managing markets In-Play

    1. 1.1 General

      • For everything other than horseracing and greyhound racing, if a market is not scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at the relevant time, then:
        • if the event has a scheduled 'off' time, all bets matched after that scheduled off time will be void; and
        • if the event does not have a scheduled 'off' time, Betfair will use its reasonable endeavours to ascertain the time of the actual 'off' and all bets after the time of the 'off' determined by Betfair will be void.
      • For horseracing and greyhound racing, if a market is not scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair fails to suspend the market at the relevant time, then all bets matched after the official 'off' time will be void.
      • In the market rules we may state that the relevant market will not be 'actively managed' by Betfair. Where this is applicable, Betfair aims to use its reasonable endeavours to suspend in-play markets at the start of and at the end of the event, however, Betfair cannot guarantee that such markets will be suspended at the relevant time.
      • Betfair will not part-suspend outcomes/selections in an Exchange market that has been turned in-play (although it may do so in Sportsbook or Fixed Odds markets).
      • Betfair customers are responsible for managing their in-play bets at all times.
      • For the purposes of in-play betting, customers should be aware that transmissions described as "live" by some broadcasters may actually be delayed or pre-recorded. The extent of any delay may vary depending on the set-up through which they are receiving pictures or data.
      • The availability of an in-play market on our Exchange product for a particular event does not necessarily mean that there will be an equivalent in-play market for the same event on our Sportsbook or Fixed Odds products.
    2. 1.2 All markets other than horseracing and greyhound racing markets - not suspending at the time of the 'off'

      • In relation to markets which are scheduled to be turned in-play, Betfair aims to use its reasonable endeavours to turn such markets in-play at the time of the 'off'. The time of the 'off' for such markets should be set out in the Market Information. However, regardless of what it says in the Market Information, Betfair does not guarantee that such markets will be suspended and turned in-play at the time of the 'off'.
      • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair does not, at the time of the “off”, either (i) intentionally turn such market in-play or (ii) suspend the market and cancel unmatched bets, all bets matched after the time of the “off” (and before the market is intentionally turned in-play if scheduled to go in-play) will be void. Betfair will use its reasonable endeavours to ascertain the time of the actual “off” (or will othersiwe rely on the scheduled "off time) and all bets after the time of the “off” as determined by Betfair will be void. If the event is still on-going Betfair will use its reasonable endeavours to re-open the market for in-play betting.
    3. 1.3 Soccer markets - not suspending on the occurrence of a Material Event and rules relating to VAR

        Not suspending on the occurrence of a Material Event and cancellations of Material Events due to VAR
      • If Betfair does not suspend a market on time for the occurrence of a Material Event, Betfair reserves the right to void bets matched after the Material Event has occurred. Voiding of these bets may take place during the event or retrospectively once a game is completed.
      • Where a Material Event is cancelled due to a determination made via a video assistant referee, Betfair will void bets as follows for such Material Event and the cancellation of it:
        • For the cancellation of a goal, due to VAR, bets matched between the time of the goal being scored and the time at which the video assistant referee finishes the review will be voided.
        • For the cancellation of a red card, due to VAR, bets matched after the time at which the video assistant referee commences the review will be voided.
      • The voiding of any such bets may take place during the event or retrospectively once a game is completed.

      • Where a video assistant referee ruling results in the award of a Red Card or Penalty, such Material Event will be deemed to have occurred at the time at which the video assistant referee commences a review relating to such (ultimately awarded) Material Event. In such circumstances, bets matched prior to the time at which the video assistant referee commences a review will not be voided.
      • For the avoidance of doubt, if the referee decides to award a goal, retrospectively due to VAR, bets matched between the time of the goal being scored and the time at which the video assistant referee review is concluded will be voided unless the VAR review (and subsequent decision) does not ultimately alter the decision made by the on-field officials.
      • Definition of “Material Event”
      • For the purpose of these Exchange Rules, a "Material Event" shall mean a goal being scored, a penalty being awarded (from which a goal is scored) or a player being sent off.
    4. 1.4 Horseracing and greyhound racing markets - not suspending at the time of the 'off'

      • In relation to markets which are scheduled to be turned in-play, Betfair aims to use its reasonable endeavours to turn such markets in-play at the time of the 'off'. The time of the 'off' for such markets should be set out in the Market Information. However, regardless of what it says in the Market Information, Betfair does not guarantee that such markets will be suspended and turned in-play at the time of the 'off'.
      • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair does not, at the official time of the “off”, either (i) turn such market in-play or (ii) suspend the market and cancel unmatched bets, all bets matched after the official time of the “off” will be void.
      • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Betfair does not suspend the market at the time of the “off” (so unmatched bets are not cancelled at that time), but the market is intentionally turned in-play at a later time during the event, all bets matched after the official time of the “off” will stand, except for Australian Horse Racing, where all bets matched after the “off” but before the point in time that Betfair turns the market in-play, will be void.
  2. Results and market settlement

    1. 2.1General

      • Markets will be settled as set out in the Market Information and/or the Specific Sports Rules.
      • Where the Market Information or Specific Sports Rules do not specify how and on what basis a market will be settled, markets will be settled on the official result of the relevant governing body regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result (except if an amendment is announced within 24 hours of the initial settlement of the relevant market in order to correct an error in reporting the result).
      • If no official result of a relevant governing body is available, the result will be determined by Betfair (acting reasonably) using information from independent sources. In such cases, if any new information comes into the public domain within 48 hours of settlement, then Betfair shall (acting reasonably) determine either: (i) whether the market should be reinstated or resettled in light of this new information; or (ii) whether or not to wait for further information before deciding whether to reinstate or resettle the market. Except where Betfair has announced that it is waiting for further information, any information that comes into the public domain more than 48 hours after a market has been settled shall not be considered by Betfair (regardless of whether or not such information may have led to a different result).
      • In the event of any uncertainty about any result or potential result, Betfair reserves the right to suspend settlement of any market for an unlimited period until the uncertainty can be resolved to the reasonable satisfaction of Betfair. Betfair reserves the right to void any market if the uncertainty regarding settlement cannot be resolved to Betfair's reasonable satisfaction.
    2. 2.2Resettlements

      • Markets are generally settled shortly after the end of the event in question. Betfair may settle (or part-settle) some markets before the official result is declared (or may increase a customer's 'available to bet' balance by the minimum potential winnings of that customer on a given market) purely as a customer service benefit. However, Betfair reserves the right to amend the settlement of the market if: (i) the official result is different to the result on which Betfair initially settled the market (for example, a horseracing result being changed by the relevant governing body shortly after a race, but before the result is official); or (ii) if the whole market is eventually voided (e.g. for an abandoned event).
      • Betfair reserves the right to reverse the settlement of a market if a market is settled in error (for example, a human or technical error).
      • If Betfair resettles a market, this may lead to amendments being made to a customer's balance to reflect changes in market settlement.
    3. 2.3Non-runners, withdrawals and disqualifications

      • Subject always to Betfair's right to void bets under its terms and conditions or for any exception under the Exchange Rules, if a market contains a statement that says "All bets stand, run or not" (or something similar) in the Market Information, then all bets on a team or competitor will stand regardless of whether or not the team or competitor starts the event or takes any part in the event.
      • Where the Market Information does not stipulate that all bets will stand regardless of participation, customers should refer to the relevant Specific Sports Rules.
      • If a team or competitor is disqualified, withdraws or forfeits after starting an event they will be deemed a loser providing at least one other team or competitor completes the event. If no team or competitor completes an event (having started) then all bets will be void except for bets on any markets which have been unconditionally determined.
    4. 2.4'Winner with [named selection]' markets

      • Betfair may from time to time offer markets that are dependant on the participation of a particular competitor. If the competitor named either in a 'Winner with …' market title or in the Market Information does not participate in the tournament or event then all bets on the market will be void. For example, if there was a "Winner with Federer" tennis market, all bets on the market would be void if Federer did not participate in the tournament. However, if any other competitor did not participate, then bets would stand.
      • A team or competitor will be deemed to have participated if they have taken part to the extent necessary to record an official result or classification (including any disqualification but excluding any "did not start" or equivalent classification).
  3. Abandonments, Cancellations, Postponements

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information. However, where a market has no rules in the Specific Sports Rules or the Market Information in relation to an abandonment, cancellation and/or postponement the following shall apply.
    • In relation to any match, fixture, game, individual event, race or similar: If the event is not completed within three days after the originally scheduled completion date, then all bets on markets for this event will be void, except for bets on any markets that have been unconditionally determined.
    • In relation to any tournament, competition or similar: If the event is not completed within three days after the originally scheduled completion date, then any markets relating to the event will be settled in accordance with the official ruling of the relevant governing body, providing such a decision is given within 90 days after the scheduled completion date. If no official ruling is announced in this 90 day period, then bets on any market relating to this event will be void, except for bets on any markets which have been unconditionally determined. If a market is to be voided but has been part-settled as a courtesy to Betfair customers, then such part-settled bets will be reversed and all bets on the market will be void.
    • Betfair will decide (acting reasonably) whether a market relates to a match (or similar) or a tournament (or similar). However, by way of example, the following shall apply: (i) Europa League outright = tournament; (ii) Champions League Group outright = tournament; (iii) Top Premiership goalscorer = tournament; (iv) 72-hole Golf Match bet = match; (v) Ryder Cup outright = tournament; (vi) Golf tournament outright = tournament; (vii) Tennis Tournament outright = tournament;(viii) 5-day Cricket Test Match = match; (ix) Ashes Series outright winner = tournament; (x) Motor Race (e.g. Grand Prix) = match.
  4. Change of venue

    Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information. However, if change of venue is not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information then the following shall apply:

    • For any team sport: if the scheduled venue is changed after the market is loaded by Betfair, all bets will be void only if the new venue is a home ground of the original away team
    • For all categories or markets other than team sports: if the scheduled venue is changed after the market is loaded by Betfair, all bets will stand.
    • If there is a change in the type of scheduled surface (e.g. a hockey match switching from grass to astro-turf) after the market has been loaded, all bets will stand.
  5. Periods of time

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules or the Market Information then the following shall apply.
    • Unless otherwise stated, all bets on soccer markets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any added injury or stoppage time. However extra-time and penalty shoot-outs are not included. The only exceptions are for: matches that are scheduled for a duration other than the standard 90 minutes (e.g. 60, 70, 80 or 120 minutes) as agreed by the laws of the competition in which they are competing or agreed by both sides prior to kick-off. In such cases, if the match is played in the traditional format of two halves, all bets will be settled at the end of the agreed game length which includes time added on by the referee for stoppages (whether the game length is advertised by Betfair or not). If the game is played in an unusual format (e.g. 3 or 4 periods) then all half-time markets will be voided but all other markets will be settled on the basis of the score at the end of the match (including any time added on by the referee for stoppages).
    • Some markets refer to the length of time until an occurrence in the event (e.g. time of first goal). If an event happens in stoppage or injury time after any regular time period then it will be deemed to have occurred at the end of the regular time period. For example, if a goal is scored in first half stoppage-time in a soccer match it will be deemed to have occurred on 45 minutes.
    • All bets apply to the relevant full 'regular time' period including stoppage time. Any extra-time and/or penalty shoot-out is not included.
    • References within these Rules and Regulations to a particular number of 'days' shall mean the end of the day local time after the expiry of the specified number of days. For example, if a rugby match is originally scheduled for the 1st of December, then the rule that allows the match to be completed within three days after the originally scheduled completion date (see Paragraph 3 above) would mean that the deadline for completion of that match would be 23.59:59 on the 4th of December.
  6. Match bets

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information. For example, for match bets on Golf markets the rules are set out in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules or the Market Information then the following shall apply.
    • 'Match Bets' for one-off events are determined by the competitor or team with the best score, time or finishing position in the event. If none of the competitors or teams involved in the match bet complete the event or register a score, time or finishing position then bets are void unless specified otherwise in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information. Any competitor or team not completing an event or registering a score, time or finishing position having taken part in the match bet event will be settled as a loser providing at least one other team or competitor completes that event or registers a score, time or finishing position.
    • 'Match Bets' for progress in a competition or event with multiple heats or rounds are determined by the competitor or team which qualifies to the furthest round (whether it takes part in the further round or not) or with the best score, time or finishing position in the final or same heat of that competition or event. If the relevant competitors or teams fail to qualify in the same round of the competition but in different heats then dead-heat rules will apply, irrespective of the finishing positions in their respective heats. Markets will be part-settled after the end of each round and any subsequent disqualifications, penalties or amendments to results or qualifications will not have any effect on the market. Where one or more of the competitors or teams are disqualified, for the purposes of settlement, the disqualified competitor or team will be deemed to have progressed further in the competition or event than all those eliminated from the competition or event prior to the disqualification, and will be deemed to have finished last (or joint last if there is more than one disqualification) of those still competing in the competition or event. Disqualification will be considered to have taken place at the time of the competitor's or team's removal from the competition or event by the relevant governing body, rather than at the time of the event which caused disqualification.
    • If one of the competitors or teams does not take any part in the event, then all relevant match bets will be void.
    • If an event or tournament is abandoned or reduced in duration such that any competitor or team fails to complete the match bet, event or tournament for any reason other than withdrawal or disqualification then all bets will be void except for those on markets which have been unconditionally determined.
  7. "To qualify" markets

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules or the Market Information then the following shall apply.
    • Any 'to qualify' market (e.g. "to reach the final" markets) will be determined by the competitor or team that qualifies under the terms set out in Market Information, whether or not they take part in the next round or event for which they have qualified. Markets will be settled after the qualifying stage and any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result will not count.
  8. Dead heats

    • Unless stated otherwise in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information the Dead Heat Rule applies to bets on a market where there are more winners than expected (as set out in the Market Information).
    • For each bet matched on a relevant winning selection, the stake money is first reduced in proportion by multiplying it by the sum of the number of winners expected (as set out in the Market Information), divided by the number of actual winners (i.e. stake multiplied by (number of winners expected/number of actual winners)). The winnings are then paid to the successful backers on this 'reduced stake' (reduced stake multiplied by traded price) and the remaining stake money is paid to the appropriate layers.
    • For example, assume there is a dead heat for first place between three horses. 'Client A' has backed one of the winners for a stake of 300 at the traded price of 4.0 and 'Client B' has taken the other side of this bet. When the event is settled, the stake (300) is multiplied by 1/3 (i.e. the number of expected winners (1) divided by the number of actual winners (3)) to calculate the reduced stake (100) and the remainder given to the layer (200). The backer then receives the traded price matched (4.0) multiplied by the reduced stake (4 x 100 = 400). In this example, Client A's net winnings are 100 (400 payout minus the original 300 stake), and Client B's net losses are 100. Alternatively, this can be viewed as the full amount paid to the traded price divided by the number of dead-heaters. In the above example this would be 300 at the traded price of 4.0 (1200) divided by 3; making 400 payout and 100 net winnings.
    • By way of another example, assume there is an outright winner in a golf tournament but 7 players tie for 2nd place. In the "top 5 finish" market, after settling on the outright winner in the top 5 market there would be 4 other designated winners places available. 'Client A' has backed one of the winners for 300 at the traded price of 4.0 and 'Client B' has taken the other side of this bet. When the event is settled, the stake (300) is multiplied by 4/7 (i.e. the number of expected winners (4) divided by the number of actual winners (7)) to calculate the reduced stake (171.43) and the remainder given to the layer (128.57). The backer then receives the traded price matched (4.0) multiplied by the reduced stake (4 x 171.43 = 685.72). In this example, Client A's net winnings are 385.72 (685.72 payout minus the original 300 stake), and Client B's net losses are 385.72.
    • In relation to customers whose betting counterparty is Betfair, for the purposes of this section of the Exchange Rules dealing with dead heats, the terms 'Client A', 'Client B' and 'appropriate layers' should, where relevant, be read as 'Betfair'.
  9. Rules for Betfair Starting Price

    • Betfair's Starting Price ('SP' or 'Betfair SP') is available on the Exchange. Exchange SP bets (‘SP bets’) are therefore a type of Exchange bet. The Betfair SP is calculated by Betfair, by balancing all SP bets and other Exchange bets when the market is suspended at the 'off' of the relevant event. The details of this calculation are provided directly below.
    • Please note that for all Betfair customers, an SP bet cannot be cancelled once it has been placed.
    • A bet at Betfair SP is a fixed odds bet, with the odds on each selection being calculated and bets matched when the event starts. The odds are calculated by matching SP backers and other Exchange backers against SP layers and other Exchange layers. The inclusion of other Exchange bets in the SP reconciliation is necessary to ensure that: SP backers get the benefit of unmatched Exchange offers to lay if those offers could increase the SP; and SP layers get the benefit of unmatched Exchange offers to back if those offers could reduce the SP. Including unmatched other Exchange in the SP reconciliation also ensures that the bets of other Exchange backers and layers, which would otherwise lapse, are matched where possible.
    • The minimum liability for a bet placed at Betfair SP is £10 for a lay bet and £2 for a back bet (or the currency equivalent in each case).
    • Example 1: on selection A there is £1,000 of backers' stakes and £6,000 of layers' liabilities at Betfair SP and there are £500 of unmatched other Exchange back bets available to lay at an average of 5.0. If we ignored the Exchange market in this case the SP would be 7.0. However this would leave other Exchange back bets, that could also have been matched at their requested price against SP layers, unmatched. Therefore the Betfair SP will be 5.0 and all SP backers and SP layers will be matched at that price. The £500 of Exchange backers' stakes will also be matched at their requested price of 5.0 against the SP layers.
    • Example 2: on selection B there are £831 of backers' stakes and £4,428 of layers' liabilities at Betfair SP and the following unmatched other Exchange lay bets, available to back: £20 at 6.8, £31.13 at 6.6 and £100 at 6.4. In this case the Betfair SP will be 6.68. This is calculated by including the £20 available to back at 6.8 and the £31.13 available to back at 6.6 and balancing those amounts against the SP backers' stakes and SP layers' liabilities. The £100 available to back on the Exchange at 6.4 remains unmatched as to include any of this amount would lead to an imbalance between SP backers and SP layers.
    • For more details on how Betfair undertakes the SP reconciliation process, please see the FAQ section of the Betfair SP microsite which is located at the following URL: www.betfair.com/betfairsp.
    • The SP is calculated to six decimal places for each selection, though it may be displayed in the relevant market view (or in any form/results data provided by Betfair) to two decimal places, rounded up or down as applicable. After reconciliation, the full SP on each selection is available by clicking on the relevant individual runner graph.
    • If for whatever reason the site is unavailable when an event starts or the SP cannot otherwise be reconciled at the 'off', Betfair will determine the SP using all available information. For the avoidance of doubt this information will not be limited to betting activity on the relevant Betfair market(s). Also in these circumstances, a licensed betting operator within the Betfair group may act as risk counterparty to SP bets if necessary to ensure a fair SP. The Betfair personnel involved in determining the SP in such circumstances will have no undeclared personal or other interest in the SP in question.
    • If the SP reconciliation process is undertaken prematurely (for example if a horserace is turned in-play in error), then Betfair will endeavour to reverse the reconciliation so that the SP is determined when the event actually starts. There may however be circumstances in which this is not possible, in which case the SP will be based on the initial reconciliation.
    • In cases where an SP reconciliation is reversed: SP bets (including SP limit bets), 'At In-play: Take SP' bets and 'At In-play: Keep' bets will all revert to their status before the reconciliation; and 'At In-play: Cancel' bets will either remain cancelled if not matched as part of the reconciliation process, or if matched as part of the reconciliation process, will revert to their unmatched status before the reconciliation.
    • If the SP reconciliation process is undertaken later than scheduled (i.e. after the event has started) and Betfair determines that a material event has occurred (this will generally mean that the event is not turned in-play), the SP will be determined based solely on SP bets (and ‘At In-play: Take SP’ bets which are unmatched when Betfair suspends the relevant market), placed before the 'off'. This means that ‘At In-play: Take SP’ bets matched after the off, will be made void and not included in the reconciliation process. In addition SP bets placed after the 'off' will be voided. However, if the SP reconciliation process is undertaken later than scheduled but Betfair determines that no material event has occurred, all bets will stand.
    • If a Betfair SP 'each way' option is offered this will be processed as two separate bets: a win bet at SP and a 'to be placed' bet at SP.
    • If for any reason unmatched bets are cancelled prior to a market going in-play, then any unmatched bets that have been selected to 'At In-play: Take SP' will be converted to Betfair SP bets. Once those bets are converted, they cannot be cancelled.
    1. 10.1Party against whom you are betting at Betfair SP

      • When you place a bet at SP you are betting against other Betfair customers. However during the reconciliation of the Betfair SP, Betfair acts as counterparty in order to balance liabilities between Betfair SP bets and other Exchange bets.
    2. 10.2Placing a Betfair SP bet

      Selecting the 'SP' button in the market view gives customers two different ways to request an SP bet. These are as follows:

      • The first way to request a bet at SP is by leaving the 'Set SP odds limit' box unticked at the top right of the bet manager. For a back bet you are required to enter the stake you wish to bet on the selection. For a lay bet you are required to enter the liability you are prepared to risk against the selection – in other words the amount that you are prepared to lose, should the selection win (or be placed as applicable).
      • The second way to request a bet at SP is to select the 'Set SP odds limit' option. Using this you can request a bet at SP conditional upon minimum SP odds in the case of a back bet, or maximum SP odds in the case of a lay bet. If Betfair's SP is shorter than the minimum price requested by a backer or is longer than the maximum price requested by a layer, then the relevant bet will lapse when the event starts. If Betfair's SP is longer than the minimum price requested by a backer or is shorter than the maximum price requested by a layer, the bet will be matched at the SP. Where an SP is equal to the price limit specified by customers, those bets will be included based on the time they were submitted, on a first come, first served basis as is the existing convention for other Exchange bets. This means that such bets may be unmatched or partially matched.
      • Please note that if a non-runner cannot be removed by Betfair from the relevant market until after the completion of the event, the application to all bets matched at or before the "off" (including SP bets) of any reduction factor, may mean that the matched price for an SP back bet with an odds limit requested, is adjusted to a price below the lower limit requested. It may also mean that an SP lay bet request with maximum odds requested, may not be matched even though the odds on the selection, after any post-race adjustment for the late non-runner, is below the maximum odds requested.
      • If an SP bet with an odds limit is requested, the minimum/maximum odds requested can be shortened in the case of a back bet or a lengthened in the case of a lay bet at any time before the event starts. However, as mentioned above, an SP bet request cannot actually be cancelled by a customer once it has been placed. Details of the impact of non-runners on the Betfair SP are provided below.
    3. 10.3Exchange bets which are unmatched at the 'off'

      • A normal Exchange bet is placed by choosing the odds of your selection from the market view (as opposed to clicking on the 'SP' of your selection). When such an Exchange bet is fully or partially unmatched it can be adjusted and cancelled in the normal course. Previously, unmatched bets were automatically cancelled when a market was suspended at the 'off' of the relevant event. You can now choose to either have your unmatched Exchange bet convert to an SP bet when the market suspends at the start of the event, or to have the bet 'persist' when the event goes in-play (see the 'keep' option below).
      • In order to convert your unmatched Exchange bet to an SP bet when the market suspends you should select the 'At In-Play: Take SP' option in the bet manager. If there is a non-runner in a win market with a reduction factor of at least 2.5%, or a non-runner in a place market with a reduction factor of at least 4%, it is Betfair's policy to cancel unmatched lay bets on all other runners in the market. In the case of any such non-runner, instead of being cancelled a lay bet for which the 'At In-Play: Take SP' option has been selected, will automatically convert to an SP bet. After this conversion the bet cannot be cancelled. Otherwise, unlike an SP bet, you can choose to cancel an Exchange bet once it has been placed, even if you have chosen for the bet to persist or to convert to an SP bet at the start of the event.
      • If you choose to convert an unmatched Exchange lay bet to an SP bet, the liability of your Exchange lay bet will be converted into a liability for the SP bet. Your liability for that SP bet will never be more than the liability for the Exchange bet you had specified. However, the amount you can win on the SP lay bet may differ from the amount you would have won had the Exchange bet been matched, depending on the final SP.
    4. 10.4Adjustments to SP bets for non-runners

      • For SP back bets, Betfair will at no point amend either the stake or the odds requested by a customer, despite any non-runners or withdrawals. However customers who have selected the SP limit option can reduce the minimum SP odds they are prepared to accept on a selection.
      • If you place a Betfair Starting Price (BSP) bet and we are unable to remove a non-runner until after the race has completed, the BSP Price that is calculated at the race start may change after the non-runner has been removed. The Reduction Factor of the non-runner will be applied to the original BSP odds generated, which will return a revised price for your bet.
      • For SP lay bets on win markets, Betfair will reduce a customer's liability based on the reduction factor(s) of any non-runner(s) and the reduction factor of the runner on which the customer's bet has been placed. This is to ensure that the balance between the backers' stakes and the layers' liability reflects the revised market after the runner has been removed. For example if a horse with a 50% reduction factor becomes a non-runner, then another horse in the same market priced at about 5 (i.e. a reduction factor of 20%) will change to a price of about 2.5. Therefore the liability on a £200 lay bet on that runner will need to change to a liability of about £75 to ensure that a balancing back bet will have the same £50 stake. This is done by multiplying the liability by 37.5% (i.e. 100%-(50%/(100%-20%))).
      • Where an SP lay bet in a win market has a maximum odds limit specified, this limit will be reduced by the reduction factor of any non-runner, if the non-runner has a reduction factor of at least 2.5%.
      • For SP lay bets on place markets, Betfair will still reduce a customer's liability based on the reduction factor(s) of any non-runner(s) but the calculation will be slightly different, in line with the application of place market reduction factors. The liability will be reduced by the reduction factor of the removed runner. Where the lay bet on a place market has a maximum odds limit specified, the potential winnings on the bet (i.e. the odds – 1) will be reduced by the reduction factor of the removed runner.
      • Where an SP lay bet in a place market has a maximum odds limit specified, this limit will be reduced by the reduction factor of any non-runner.
      • SP lay bets will not be cancelled when there is a non-runner.
    5. 10.5Specific conditions for SP bets for non-runners in greyhound racing markets

      • ALL SP bets will stand so long as your trap selection is not vacant or after your bet placement a reserve runner is not subsequently entered to run from your trap selection.
      • ALL unmatched ‘Convert to SP’ bets will be cancelled when a reserve is added or a vacant trap removed.
  10. 'Keep' bets option

    • For markets that are scheduled to be turned in-play at the 'off', a customer can request that an unmatched Exchange bet should not be cancelled when the market is turned in-play. This is done by selecting the 'At In-Play: Keep' option in the bet manager (and confirming that request) and means that the unmatched bet persists when other unmatched bets are cancelled at the start of the event.
    • As described above, when a non-runner is removed from a horseracing market (apart for late withdrawals as described in the next bullet point below), it is Betfair's policy to cancel unmatched offers to lay all other horses in the market if the non-runner has a reduction factor of 2.5% or greater for win markets, or 4.0% or greater for place markets. In these circumstances offers to lay a horse with the 'At In-Play: Keep' option selected will not be cancelled. Instead the lay odds offered in place markets will be reduced in proportion with the reduction factors of any non-runner(s) and the same will apply in win markets providing the relevant non-runner has a reduction factor of at least 2.5%.
    • When there is a late withdrawal, Betfair may not have time to remove the non-runner from the market before turning it in-play. In such cases if Betfair is able to determine that the late withdrawal is a material runner (i.e. a selection with a reduction factor of approx 20% or greater in the win market), it reserves the right to cancel ALL lay 'keep' bets (in both the win and ‘to be placed’ markets) before turning the market in-play. If Betfair does not cancel lay 'keep' bets in the case of a late withdrawal (for example, it may not be possible to know which horse is withdrawn, at the time of the off), any such bets placed before the off and matched in-play will remain at the original selected price. This means that those lay 'keep' bets will not be subject to any reduction factor which as a result of the late withdrawal, will be applied after the completion of the race to bets matched at or before the 'off'.
    • Otherwise, in exceptional cases Betfair reserves the right to cancel 'keep' bets to protect customers but, unless stipulated in the market rules or the market information, the general principle is that at no point will a 'keep' bet be cancelled by Betfair unless it remains unmatched when the market is closed (for the final time) at the end of the event.
    • For the avoidance of doubt this means that (for example) when a Material Event occurs in a soccer match and other unmatched bets are cancelled before the market is reopened, a keep bet will not be cancelled.
  11. Rules for Tote betting

    • When you place a Tote bet on the Betfair platform (for example a UK or South African Tote bet), you are betting against Betfair as counterparty to your bet. Betfair will then strike a corresponding bet into the relevant Tote pool as applicable.
    • A link to the rules which apply to Tote bets struck with Betfair as counterparty is provided within each of the relevant Tote betting pages on the Betfair website. If there is any conflict between those rules and either: the equivalent rules available on the relevant Tote website (for example on the UK Tote website in the case of UK Tote bets); or the equivalent rules applied by the relevant host racetrack, the rules on the relevant Tote website or applied by the relevant host racetrack, will prevail.
  12. Rules for Cash Out and Auto Cash Out

      Cash Out

    • Cash Out is a feature which is offered on various betting markets on the Betfair Exchange. Cash Out allows you to amend your original bet(s) on that market and lock in a profit or a loss by settling your bet(s) (or a portion of it/them) early, without having to wait for the event to finish.
    • If you make a Cash Out request, you will be notified whether or not your request has been successful. Your request to Cash Out is not guaranteed to be accepted and may be unsuccessful if, for example, the market suspends or the odds move before your request has been processed.
    • If your Cash Out request is successful, a ‘success’ message will be shown and your bet(s) (or the relevant portion of your bet(s)) will be settled at the time on which all other bets on the same market are settled (at which time any winnings will be returned to your account equal to the amount shown on the Cash Out button - note that this includes the original stake or portion of your stake).
    • If your Cash Out request is unsuccessful, a message will be shown which gives the reason why and a new Cash Out offer may be offered to you.
    • Cash Out requests made in-play may take longer to process because of the in-play bet delay.
    • Cash Out is not currently available on all Betfair Exchange markets - a Cash Out icon will be displayed for the markets that support Cash Out. See the Help page for more details on when Cash Out may not be available.
    • Cash Out on the Betfair Exchange applies on a “per-market” rather than a “per-bet” basis. Accordingly, if you have placed two separate bets on the same outcome, you may cash out of both bets or neither bet (i.e. you will not be able to cash out of one of the bets only).
    • Using Cash Out may mean you will opt out of and no longer be eligible for a particular promotion. See the terms and conditions of the promotion for further details.
    • Betfair reserves the right to reverse the settlement of a Cash Out if the bet or a market is settled in error (for example, due to a human or technical error). If Betfair resettles a bet, this may lead to amendments being made to a customer's balance to reflect changes in bet settlement.
    • Betfair reserves the right to suspend or disable the Cash Out feature at any time.

      Auto Cash Out

    • Auto Cash Out is a product which is offered on a range of markets for which Cash Out is available on the Betfair Exchange.
    • Auto Cash Out allows you to set the profit level at which you would like to be automatically cashed out of your bets on a given market (for further details of the standard Cash Out product which is offered on the Betfair Exchange, see the sub-section above).
    • Simply set your auto cash out level and, should the winnings which you would achieve by cashing out reach that level at any time, Betfair will attempt to automatically cash out the bets which you have placed on the relevant market. This means that, if your Auto Cash Out is successful, you will receive the amount at which you pre-set your Auto Cash Out (i.e. your original stake and the specified profit). However, as with Betfair’s standard Cash Out product, you will not be able to win the same amount as if your bet had been settled successfully.
    • Should your Auto Cash Out be successful, a message will appear on your screen to confirm this.
    • You will not be able to see when the Auto Cash Out service is attempting to cash you out.
    • Please note that Auto Cash Out is not guaranteed. In some circumstances, Betfair may be unable to automatically cash out your bet(s) despite this appearing to be possible on the relevant sections of Betfair’s website/app.
    • Once an Auto Cash Out has successfully occurred, your My Bets page will list the betting transactions which occurred in order to effect the Auto Cash Out.
    • Where you have selected Auto Cash Out for a given market and that Cash Out has successfully occurred, any and all unmatched bets that you have placed on the same market will be automatically cancelled.
    • Where you have placed bets on a number of selections in the same market and one or more of those selections is settled as a losing bet before the market is fully settled (e.g. because it is no longer possible for the selection(s) in question to be successful), any auto cash out rule which you have applied to your other selections on that market will automatically be cancelled.
    • Betfair reserves the right to suspend or disable the Auto Cash Out feature at any time.
  13. Miscellaneous

    • All references to time periods in the Exchange Rules relate to the time zone in which the event takes place. For example, a reference to the start time of a football match, relates to the local kick-off time.
    • All information supplied by Betfair is done so in good faith. However, Betfair cannot accept liability for any errors or omissions in respect of any information, such as the posting of prices, runners, times, scores, results or general statistics.
    • Betfair reserves the right to correct any obvious errors and shall take all reasonable steps to ensure markets are administered with integrity and transparency.
    • If an incorrect team or competitor name is displayed (excluding minor spelling mistakes) or the incorrect number of teams, competitors or outcomes is displayed in any complete market or a market is otherwise loaded using incorrect information (for example the application of an incorrect exposure algorithm or a cross matching tool utilising an incorrect algorithm) or includes any obvious error such as the incorrect deployment of the cross matching tool, then Betfair reserves the right to suspend the market and (providing it acts reasonably) to void all bets matched on the market.
    • Customers are responsible for ensuring that they satisfy themselves that the selection on which they place a bet is their intended selection. For example, in the case of a competitor bearing the same name as another individual not competing in the relevant event, the onus is on the customer to ensure that they know which competitor Betfair has loaded into the relevant market and to ensure that they are placing their bet on their chosen competitor.
    • Betfair reserves the right at any time in its sole and absolute discretion to suspend an Exchange market without suspending any corresponding or related Sportsbook or Fixed Odds market, or to suspend or stop offering a Sportsbook or Fixed Odds market without suspending any corresponding or related Exchange market.
    • Betfair may, in its sole and absolute discretion, decide to suspend betting on a market at any time (even if such suspension is earlier than anticipated by the Exchange Rules). In the interests of maintaining integrity and fairness in the markets, Betfair may also void certain bets in a market or void a whole market in its entirety.
    • Please be aware that if you place related or corresponding bets on a combination of Betfair’s Exchange, Sportsbook, Fixed Odds and/or Multiples products (and/ or the betting products of other third parties), it is possible for bets on one product to be voided in accordance with Betfair’s terms and conditions, while bets on another product may stand. You should note that Betfair will have no liability to you in the event that one or more of your bets on Betfair’s products are amended or voided in accordance with Betfair’s terms and conditions, even if your other related bets stand (and even if you have specifically relied on bets you have placed on one product in order to place related bets on another product).
    • Betfair reserves the right to amend the Exchange Rules at any time. Any such revision will be binding and effective immediately on the posting of such rule changes on betfair.com and any markets loaded after the new Exchange Rules have been posted shall be governed by the new Exchange Rules.
    • Betfair reserves the right to cancel unmatched bets to protect customers at any time.
    • On the settlement of any market, amounts relating to
      • winnings/losses on bets; and
      • commission charges
      will be rounded up or down to the nearest two decimal places (with the exception that rounding will always be down (and never up) in respect of amounts relating to winnings/losses in respect of BSP bets). By way of example, £3.333, will be settled as £3.33, whereas £3.335, will be settled as £3.34 (except that it will be settled as £3.33 in respect of an amount relating to winnings/losses in respect of BSP bets).
    • The Exchange Rules have been prepared in various languages other than English for reference only. In the event of any differences between the English version and the non-English version, the English version shall prevail.

    • If a fight is abandoned, cancelled or postponed and not completed within three days of the scheduled start date, or a boxer is withdrawn or substituted before the first round bell, all bets will be void.
    • If a boxer retires before the start of a round, fails to answer the bell, or is disqualified for any reason between rounds, the fight will be deemed to have finished at the end of the previous round.

    • If the scheduled duration (e.g. number of rounds) of a fight changes after we have started to offer bets on it, all bets on that fight will stand except for bets involving an event to occur before, during or after specified rounds or round groupings (which will be voided). For example, in such circumstances, bets on Boxer A to win in round 5 (or Boxer A to win during rounds 4 to 6) would be voided.

  11. Greyhound racing

    1. a.) General

      • All bets (excluding those struck on ante-post and Australian licensed markets) are placed on trap numbers. Greyhound names are displayed for information purposes only.
      • Markets will be determined according to the official result at the time the track gives the result green light status, either in the form of an announcement or by display. Subsequent disqualifications, appeals or amendments to the result will be disregarded.
      • If a non-runner or reserve runner is declared, then all bets prior to the update of the market on Betfair will be void and all unmatched bets including ‘Take SP’ and ‘keep’ bets will be cancelled (except for certain SP bets as set out in Paragraph 10.5 of Part B above).
      • If there are no finishers in any race or any race is declared void before the official result is declared then all bets will be void.
      • If the scheduled venue is changed after the market has been loaded by Betfair, all bets will be void.
      • In ante-post markets, all bets on individual greyhounds stand whether the greyhound runs or not. All ante-post bets will be void if the competition is abandoned or the venue is changed.
    2. b.) Trap Challenge

      • Bets on 'Trap challenge' markets are based on which trap results in the most winners during a race meeting, unless stated otherwise in the Market Information.
      • These markets are unaffected by any changes due to non-runners or reserve runners.
      • If a race results in a dead heat each trap will receive a half-win, with a 3-way dead heat giving a one third-win, and so on.
      • Standard dead heat rules apply if two or more traps have an equal number of winners at the end of both meetings.
      • If a whole meeting is abandoned all bets are void. However if at least one race has been completed then bets on these markets will stand.
    3. c.) Multi-trap or Multiplied Trap Numbers

      • 'Multi-trap' or 'multiplied trap numbers' bets are on the cumulative sum of the winning trap multiplied by the second trap for each race during a race meeting, unless stated otherwise in the Market Information. If the cumulative sum is not a round number then that sum shall be rounded up to give the applicable cumulative sum.
      • These markets are unaffected by any changes due to non-runners or reserve runners.
      • If a race is cancelled, void or abandoned or if there is only one finisher in a race, an eight runner-greyhound races will be allocated 20 points and all other races will be allocated 12 points.
      • If a whole meeting is abandoned all bets are void however if at least one race has been completed then bets on these markets will stand with the remaining races allocated 20 points for eight runner greyhound races and 12 points for all other races.
      • Re-run races will be treated as cancelled races.
      • If there is a dead heat for the winner between two greyhounds then to calculate the applicable multi-trap number for that race the trap numbers for the greyhounds involved in the dead heat will be multiplied by each other to give the applicable multi-trap number.
      • If there is a dead heat for the winner between three or more greyhounds then to calculate the applicable multi-trap number for that race the trap numbers for the greyhounds involved in the dead heat will be added up and divided by the number of greyhounds involved in the dead heat and the resulting number will be multiplied by itself to give the applicable multi-trap number (even if not a round number). By way of example: traps 1, 3 and 6 dead heat for first. Add these numbers up gives 10; divide this number by the number of greyhounds in the dead heat (3) which gives a resulting number of 3.33; multiply 3.33 by itself to give 11.11.
      • If there is a dead heat for the runner up between two or more greyhounds then to calculate the applicable multi-trap number for that race the trap numbers for the greyhounds involved in the dead heat will be added up and divided by the number of greyhounds involved in the dead heat and the resulting number will be multiplied by the number of the winner to give the applicable multi-trap number (even if not a round number). By way of example: trap 1 wins and traps 3 and 6 dead heat for second. Adding the numbers of the dead heating runners up gives 9; divide this number by the number of greyhounds in the dead heat (2) which gives a resulting number of 4.5; multiple 4.5 by the winning number (1) to give 4.5.
    4. d.) Winning Distances

      • 'Winning distances' bets are on the sum of the winning distances for all races during a race meeting, unless otherwise stated in the Market Information.
      • The maximum winning distance in any race is 10 lengths.
      • If there is only one finisher in any race the winning distance will be deemed to be 10 lengths.
      • If a race is cancelled, void or abandoned the winning distance will be deemed to be 2 lengths.
      • Re-run races will be treated as cancelled races.
      • For distances below half a length, the following scale will be applied: Short-head 0.1; Head 0.2; Neck 0.3.
      • The sum of all the winning distances will be rounded to the nearest whole number at the end of the meeting (rounded up, if half) and bets will be settled on this result.
      • If a whole meeting is abandoned all bets are void. However if at least one race has been completed then the remaining races are allocated 2 lengths each and bets will stand.
    5. e.) Match Bets

      • 'Match Bets' for a race are determined by the greyhound with the highest finishing position in that race. If neither greyhound finishes the race bets are void. If only one of the greyhounds finishes the race, that greyhound will be deemed the winner. If a non-runner or reserve runner is declared then all bets will be void.
      • 'Match Bets' for progress in a competition are determined by the greyhound which qualifies to the furthest round (whether it runs in the further round or not). If the greyhounds concerned fail to qualify in the same round of the competition then the market will be settled as a dead heat, irrespective of their finishing positions in their individual heats.
    6. f.) Reverse Forecasts

      • 'Reverse Forecast' markets are determined by those greyhounds placed first and second in a race.
      • If a dead heat affects the reverse forecast then Betfair dead heat rules apply.
    7. g.) Place markets

      • The number of winners in 'to be placed' markets is as set out in the Market Information and is determined with reference to the number of runners known to Betfair when the market is loaded.
      • Once opened, the number of winners in 'to be placed' markets (as set out in the Market Information) will not be affected by further non-runners. If the number of potential winners is equal to or is greater than the number of runners, all bets in this market will be void.
    8. h.) To Reach the Final and To Qualify markets

      • 'Reach the Final' markets shall be determined by the first six greyhounds who qualify from the Semi Finals of the competition and be settled as such regardless of whether they go on to run in the final or not.
      • 'To qualify' markets shall be determined by the greyhounds that qualify in the relevant heats irrespective of whether they run in the next round or not.
      • The 'reach the final' or 'to qualify' markets will be settled after the qualifying stages and any subsequent disqualification or amendment to results will not count.
    9. i.) Ante-post

      • If a greyhound listed in an ante-post market dies, Betfair will use the available information to determine the time of the greyhound's death. Betfair will then, acting reasonably, determine whether the greyhound was a 'material runner' in the market. In determining whether a greyhound is a material runner, Betfair will look at the general price of the greyhound immediately before the greyhound's death, in the Betfair market and in the wider betting market. Broadly, Betfair will consider a greyhound to be a material runner if it is deemed to have an approximate chance of winning of 8-10 per cent or better.
      • If Betfair determines that the greyhound was a 'material runner', then all bets struck in the market (on all selections) between the time of death and the suspension of the market will be void and all unmatched bets will be cancelled before the market is reopened.
      • If Betfair determines that the greyhound was not a 'material runner', then just bets struck on the greyhound in question between the time of death and the suspension of the market will be void and unmatched bets will not be cancelled before the market is reopened.
      • Bets matched on greyhounds after they have forfeited their entry at a particular entry stage or where they have not qualified by the applicable qualifying date will be voided unless the race in question has a subsequent supplementary entry stage.
      • Where an event is postponed or rescheduled to another day at the same venue then ante-post bets will stand unless entries are reopened in which case all bets will be void.
    10. j.) Australian Specific Non-Runner Rules

      • Notwithstanding any of the above, the following rules apply to declared non-runners in Australian greyhound markets.
      • If a greyhound becomes a notified non runner after the market is loaded but prior to the commencement of the race it will be removed and all bets on the market, matched prior to the update of the market on Betfair, will be voided.
      • If, following the completion of a race, the stewards declare a greyhound a non-runner, Betfair will resettle the market and will void all bets that were placed on that runner only. Betfair will then apply a reduction factor to all bets placed on the winner (or placegetters in the case of place markets) based on that runner’s weighted average price.
  12. Ice Hockey

    • All bets on "Regular Time" markets will be settled on the result at the end of regular time, excluding overtime. All bets on " Moneyline " markets will be settled at the result at the end of regular time including "overtime and any shootouts that may be played".
    • Handicap markets, including 'Puck Line' markets (i.e. handicap markets for National Hockey League matches), will be settled on the basis of the final result including overtime and any shootouts that may be played.
    • If a match does not start on the scheduled start date and is not completed within three days of the scheduled start date, all bets will be void except for those on markets which have been unconditionally determined.
    • If a match starts but is later abandoned or postponed then, within three days of the scheduled start date, (a) at least 55 minutes of play must have elapsed in any match; or (b) an official result must be 'called' by the relevant governing body; otherwise all bets will be void, except for those which have been unconditionally determined. In these instances, if the scores are tied then for " Moneyline " matches (where no tie is offered) dead heat rules will apply to bets on the outright match winner market.
  13. Motor sport (which may include, amongst others, Formula One, Superbikes and Speedway)

    • If a race is abandoned and no presentation position or official result is declared all bets on that race will be void except for bets on any markets which have been unconditionally determined.
    • If the scheduled venue is changed after the market has been loaded by Betfair, all bets will be void.
    • On "head-to-head" bets (i.e. match bets) the driver/rider who finishes ahead or completes the most number of laps is deemed to be the winner.
    • In Speedway , bets will be void if all scheduled heats or races of a meeting or match are not completed except on markets which have been unconditionally determined.
    • In any case where there is no podium presentation, but the Market Information states that settlement of the relevant market will be based on the result at the time of the podium presentation, then the market will be settled on the official result of the relevant governing body regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result (except if an amendment is announced within 24 hours of the initial settlement of the relevant market in order to correct an error in reporting the result).
  14. Rowing

    • If a crew or individual starts a race but does not complete it then they will be deemed a loser providing at least one other crew or individual completes the race. If no crew or individual completes a race then all bets will be void.
    • If a regatta is cancelled for any reason, all bets will be void, except those on markets which have been unconditionally determined.
    • Where there is a presentation ceremony, markets will be settled on the official result of the relevant governing body at the time of the ceremony, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result.
    • If there is no presentation ceremony, outcomes will be determined in accordance with the official result of the relevant governing body, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result (except if an amendment is announced within 24 hours of the initial settlement of the relevant market in order to correct an error in reporting the result).
  15. Rugby Union and Rugby League

    • 'Tournament points' and 'tournament tries' bets will apply to all playing time, including any extra-time in any match where an official result is declared.
    • For 'time of first try' bets, if the try is scored in the second half, the first half is deemed to have lasted 40 minutes, regardless of stoppage-time. If no try is scored, or the try is scored in second half stoppage-time or extra-time, the result is 80.
    • For the purpose of markets involving tries, penalty tries will count with the exception of 'first individual try scorer' markets where penalty tries will not count.
    • If a match starts but is abandoned before its completion, all bets will be void unless an official result is declared by the applicable governing body. Where an official result has been declared by the official governing body, that official result will govern match and handicap market settlement but all other markets will be void unless their result has already been determined at the point of abandonment (i.e. at the point of abandonment, it would not have been possible for the outcome of the bet to change had the match continued to its natural conclusion). By way of example, if 37 points have been scored at the time a match is abandoned: (i) a bet placed on 35 points or more to be scored would be settled as a winning bet, (ii) a bet placed on 30-35 points to be scored would be settled as a losing bet and (iii) a bet placed on 40-45 points to be scored would be void. In such circumstances, bets on last tryscorer / team to score last / team to score last try / last scoring play would all be void.
  16. Snooker and Pool

    • In the event of a match starting but not being completed, the player progressing to the next round will be deemed the winner (or in the case of the final the player declared the winner).
    • If a match is not completed for any reason then bets on 'any correct score' or 'next frame' market will be void.
    • If a match is not completed for any reason, bets on any handicap market will be void unless the market has been unconditionally determined.
  17. Soccer

    • If Betfair does not suspend a market on time for the occurrence of a Material Event (as defined in Part B of these Rules and Regulations above), Betfair reserves the right to void bets matched after the Material Event has occurred. Voiding of these bets may take place during the event or retrospectively once a game is completed.
    • Where a Material Event (as defined in Part B of these Rules and Regulations above) is cancelled due to a determination made via a video assistant referee, Betfair will void all bets which are matched between the occurrence of the Material Event and the cancellation of it. The voiding of any such bets may take place during the event or retrospectively once a game is completed.
    • For the avoidance of doubt, where a video assistant referee ruling results in the award of a Material Event (as defined in Part B of these Rules and Regulations above), such Material Event will be deemed to have occurred at the time at which the video assistant referee commences a review relating to such (ultimately awarded) Material Event. In such circumstances, bets matched prior to the time at which the video assistant referee commences a review will not be voided.
    • If a match is postponed, all undetermined bets will be voided as long as the match does not start before 23:59 local time (or if Betfair believes that a match will not have started by such time) on its scheduled date.
    • Fixtures that are rearranged before the scheduled kick off date will not be regarded as postponements and all bets will stand, as long as the rescheduled date is within 72 hours of the original kick off time.
    • If a match starts but is later abandoned, all undetermined bets will be voided as long as the match is not played to a finish before midnight local time on its scheduled date.
    • If the venue of a match is other than is indicated on our website, the bet will stand provided the match has not been switched to the opponent's ground, in which case the match will be declared void. Notwithstanding this rule, in major international tournaments (eg World Cup, European Championships), all venues will be deemed neutral. If the scheduled venue of a match is changed, including if the venue changes to a new venue in a different country, all bets will stand.
    • Euro 2020 - If a match is rescheduled (due to COVID reason for example) in line with official UEFA rules, all bets will stand. If a team is awarded a win without playing the game, all bets will be void.
    • For Friendly matches, all bets apply to the full duration of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time. If a friendly match starts but is later abandoned or postponed and is not completed (i.e. the full duration of play according to match officials, plus any stoppage time) within three days of the scheduled start date, all bets will be void except for those on markets which have been unconditionally determined. In the case of ambiguity over the official result from match officials, the outcome will be determined by Betfair (acting reasonably) using information from independent sources.
    • If an official fixture lists different team details to those listed on the Betfair website (for example, the team name, reserves, age group, gender, etc), then all bets matched on the affected markets will be void. In all other cases, bets will stand (including instances where a team name is listed without specifying the term 'XI' in the name). If an official fixture is shown on the Betfair website under an incorrect competition name, then Betfair reserves the right to void all bets matched on the affected markets.
    • If a team is relegated from a league because, at the end of a season, it has finished within the relegation positions which are relevant to that league (i.e. usually any of the bottom three league positions), bets on that team to be relegated will be settled as winning bets. If a team is otherwise disqualified, thrown out or removed from a league (i.e. in circumstances other than those where it has finished the season within the relevant relegation positions): (i) if such team is disqualified, thrown out or removed from the league before the relevant season has started, all bets on the affected market will be void (and a new market will subsequently be loaded) and (ii) if such team is disqualified, thrown out or removed from the league after the relevant season has started (or a determination is made by the applicable governing body, during the season, that the team will be thrown out or removed from the league following the season’s conclusion), all bets on the affected team will be void. For the avoidance of doubt, if a points deduction is imposed on a team such that it finishes the season within the relegation places which are relevant to the applicable league, bets on that team to be relegated will be settled as winning bets.
    • The relevant season will be deemed to have started once the first league game has been played. For the purposes of this rule, markets relating to individual matches will not be deemed to be "affected markets".
    • 'Shirt numbers' bets will refer to the shirt number allocated at the start of the match. 'Shirt numbers' bets will include own-goal scorers. Any player whose shirt bears no number will be allocated the number 12.
    • For 'time of first goal' bets (i.e. "First Goal Odds" markets), the first half is deemed to last 45 minutes, regardless of stoppage time. Also for these markets, please note that the "0 - 10 Minutes" selection covers the first 10 minutes of the match. In other words, it runs from 0:00 until just before the clock hits 10:00. The "11 – 20 Minutes" selection runs from 10:00 until just before the clock hits 20:00. The same principle applies to each of the other selections in this market.
    • For 'top goalscorer' markets only the goals scored in the league or competition stated in the Market Information count. For example, if a player joins a club mid-season any goals scored in a different league will not count, however goals scored for a different club in the same league will count. Own goals will not count.
    • In markets which relate to the number of incidents to occur, such as 'number of corners', these will be determined on the basis of the number taken, rather than awarded.
    • o For markets that relate to the number of bookings given, the number of corners taken, any goalscorer or the time of a particular goal, the result will be determined by Betfair (acting reasonably) using information from independent sources. In such cases, if any new information comes into the public domain within 48 hours of settlement, then Betfair shall (acting reasonably) determine either: (i) whether the market should be reinstated or resettled in light of this new information; or (ii) to wait for further information before deciding whether to reinstate or resettle the market. Except where Betfair has announced that it is waiting for further information, any information that comes into the public domain more than 48 hours after a market has been settled shall not be considered by Betfair (regardless of whether or not such information may have led to a different result).
  18. Swimming

    • Where there is a presentation ceremony, markets will be settled on the official result of the relevant governing body at the time of the ceremony, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result.
    • If there is no presentation ceremony, outcomes will be determined in accordance with the official result of the relevant governing body, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result (except if an amendment is announced within 24 hours of the initial settlement of the relevant market in order to correct an error in reporting the result).
  19. Tennis

    • If a player or pairing retires or is disqualified in any match, the player or pairing progressing to the next round (or winning the tournament in the case of a final) will be deemed the winner. However if less than one set has been completed at the time of the retirement or disqualification then all bets relating to that individual match will be void.
    • All bets relating to the number of occurrences of certain events within a tournament will be void if the tournament is reduced in length, postponed or cancelled, except for those on markets which have been unconditionally determined.
    • All bets will stand regardless of changes to scheduled venues, including any changes to a different type of surface.
    • If the scheduled duration of a match is reduced or increased in the number of games/sets required to win, all bets will be void except for those on markets which have been unconditionally determined. Please note that this does not apply to ‘Match Odds’ or ‘Set Winner’ markets on Davis Cup matches or ‘dead rubber’ matches that have been shortened from five sets to three sets after the market has been loaded, provided that the match has been shortened in accordance with the competition’s rules.
    • Where markets are offered on individual games or sets within a match, a retirement or disqualification during a game or set will render bets on that game or set market and all individual game or set markets void except those on markets which have been unconditionally determined.
  20. Winter sports (which include All Winter Olympic Sports)

    • All bets that have been identified as late in accordance to the relevant official website start times will be voided.
    • Where there is a presentation ceremony, markets will be settled on the official result of the relevant governing body at the time of the ceremony, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result.
    • If there is no presentation ceremony, outcomes will be determined in accordance with the official result of the relevant governing body, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result (except if an amendment is announced within 24 hours of the initial settlement of the relevant market to correct an error in reporting the result).
    • "Outright" markets relate to the winner of the overall event and not for individual qualifiers or heats.
    • For "Head-to-Head" markets, outcomes will be determined in accordance with the official result of the relevant governing body. If either or both athletes do not make the final, the winner will be deemed to be the athlete who progressed furthest by round, and if still undecided, then by time achieved in the round in which both were eliminated. All bets are void if any athlete in a match/group bet fails to compete.
    • If an event is abandoned, postponed or cancelled, all bets will be void unless the event is completed at the same venue within 48 hours of the official scheduled completion date.

  7. Completion of each bet or play

    Each bet or play that you make with us implies a specific betting contract between you and Betfair subject to these Terms and Conditions.All betting contracts are comprised of:(i) an offer by the operator, (ii) the acceptance and betting of an amount determined by the user, and (iii) the acceptance of the user's bet by the operator, and, along with that, the confirmation that your bet has been concluded between both parties.As a result, until we confirm your bet, it cannot be regarded as effectively concluded.It is possible that the confirmation of your bets will not be accepted for the purpose of:

    1. Protecting you (for example, but not limited to, if you demonstrate a pathological behaviour and/or you refuse to opt out or ban yourself); or
    2. Protecting the viability of the markets offered at any time (for example, but not limited to, in relation to events offered in which there is an extraordinary or lopsided number of bets in the same market, or in a minor or singular event/market); or
    3. Protecting other users (for example, but not limited to, in relation to events in which there may be collusive or fraudulent behaviour); or
    4. Protecting Betfair (for example, but not limited to, in the event that you demonstrate behaviour aimed at money laundering, you show collusive or fraudulent behaviour or we suspect that you are using a third party's account, you are allowing your account to be used by a third party, or you are using automated means, bots, software or similar means).

    Depending on the level of risk, instead of rejecting your bet, Betfair may offer accepting your bet up to a certain amount.In that case, you will always have the right to reject our offer, and, therefore, not conclude said bet.Once again, to avoid any type of uncertainty in this regard, no bet will be considered as effectively concluded until it is confirmed.

    You recognise that Betfair will conserve the information related to your identity, which includes, but is not limited to, your name, address and data for payment.You accept that we trust this information by entering into this contract with you, and you commit to indemnify us in the event of any falsehood or inaccuracy contained in the information you provide us.

  11. Suspension or termination

    You can suspend or cancel your gaming account at any time through notifying Betfair.

    In the same way, and in accordance with the provisions set forth in Article 85.4 of Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007 of 16 November, which approves the consolidated text of the General Law for the Defence of Consumers and Customers and other complementary laws, Betfair can terminate the Gaming Contract with you, and, as a result, close your account at any time, informing you with 7 days of advance notice.The positive balance of your account and the bets confirmed prior to the termination of your Gaming Contract and that end up being winning bets will be paid with the same payment method you used to make deposits into your account.

    Moreover, in accordance with the provisions set forth in Article 33.2 of Royal Decree 1614/2011, we can suspend or cancel your gaming account if, after having carried out the corresponding investigation, we discover that (i) you have violated any of the Terms and Conditions, rules or policies of Betfair; (ii) you have violated any law, standard or regulation; (iii) you have been involved in fraud, your account has been used by third parties or you have used automated systems, robots (bots) or any other artificial intelligence software, or you have been involved in activities of money laundering, collusion, trickery or abuse of a promotion, or in any other dishonest activity.After the cancellation or suspension of your gaming account, and after completing the corresponding verification procedure, Betfair will return the funds deposited in your gaming account, in compliance with the applicable regulations.The winnings obtained from violating the applicable regulations or these Terms and Conditions will be cancelled, and, therefore, will not be paid to you.

    We reserve the right to withhold the funds from your gaming account while any investigation is being resolved (including any external investigation) in which:

    1. we have confirmed the existence of solid evidence that you have acted in violation of these Terms and Conditions, including the cases in which we have verified that the account has been linked with fraudulent or dishonest activities.Among other things, we consider that you have participated in a fraudulent or dishonest activity if we confirm that:(a) you have made bets against the house (Sportsbook) by abusing systems, processes or automated tools that undermine the genuinely random nature of the corresponding bets and playing services; (b) you have used two or more gaming accounts; (c) you have made bets once the event or market in question has already occurred (the bet has been resolved) or you knew beforehand the result that is the object of the bet; (d) you have repeatedly acted in bad faith to make bets (including, for example, benefiting from manifest errors in the rates offered); and/or
    2. we must withhold the funds from your account by law to comply with any requirement, order or instruction received from a competent authority.

    Once said investigation has been completed, we reserve the right to withhold, or, if applicable, to seize all or part of the funds deposited in your gaming account if a competent authority orders us to do so or if we have confirmed that you have acted in violation of these Terms and Conditions.We will process and allocate the funds we obtain in this way in accordance with the requirement, order or instructions received from the competent authority.

    In addition, upon formal request by the police, gaming regulator or tax authorities or any other type of authority, or in the case you do not provide us with sufficient information to identify you in accordance with our internal procedures or those which are imposed on us by the regulatory authorities (independent of their location), including the Directorate General for Gaming Regulation (DGGR), we will be able to suspend your account and all functionalities related to the use of your account (for example, the management of bets and withdrawal of funds).We will also be able to withhold any funds deposited in your account while we complete any judicial procedure or investigation, criminal or any other type, on whomever is mentioned in said request, or until you provide us with sufficient information to verify your identity, age, domicile and other contact data, your creditworthiness and/or the origin of your funds, as applicable.

    To avoid any type of uncertainty, during said period, the funds deposited in your account will not accrue interest.

    If you do not use your account for an uninterrupted period of over 6 months, we will proceed to carry out an additional verification of your identity at the time you want to resume your gaming activity.

    In addition, in the event of being registered in the General Registry of Prohibited Access to Gambling or you request to self-exclude, we will proceed to suspend your gaming account, and you will not be able to make deposits or participate.

SECTION 2:PARTICULAR CONDITIONS FOR SPORTING BETS AGAINST THE HOUSE ("Sportsbook")

Betfair offers a platform on which our customers registered in Spain can make betting offers, which we can accept or that Betfair can reject whenever it is justified and reasonable.You can make betting offers on the various markets available on betfair.es (the "Markets").

We ask that you carefully read these Particular Conditions and the General Conditions, before making any betting offer on our website.

You must accept being bound by these Particular Conditions, as well as the General Conditions (together, the "Contract").

PARTICULAR CONDITIONS RELATIVE TO YOUR USE OF OUR WEBSITE

    At all times, you must make your betting offers in good faith, and, in particular, you must not make betting offers in violation of any sporting rules, regulations or codes of conduct that are applicable to you.

  2. Your betting offers

    The offer you make for a bet is open to acceptance thereof totally or partially by Betfair as a single counterparty, as per this Contract and the applicable regulations.

SECTION 3:SPECIFIC CONDITIONS FOR PARI-MUTUEL BETS

Betfair International Plc ("Betfair") provides a Pari-Mutuel Betting product in which our Spanish users can bet between each other on markets available on our website ("Markets").

Carefully read these Specific Conditions and the General Conditions before making betting offers or accepting bets on Pari-Mutuel Bets.

After formalising a transaction of bets in Pari-Mutuel Bets, you commit to being bound by these Specific Conditions, as well as the General Conditions (together, the "Contract").

You must act in good faith at all times in relation to the counterparties in your bets made through Pari-Mutuel Bets, and said counterparties may require compliance with said duty directly from you.Specifically, you may not make bets on the Exchange in case of violating sporting rules, regulations or codes of conduct that are applicable to you.

Specific conditions related to bets in Pari-Mutuel Bets

3. Functioning of Pari-Mutuel Bets

We can restrict your use to certain programmes designed to make bets automatically within certain parameters (for example, betting against or in favour at a certain price) ("bots") whether in general or in relation to a specific bot if we believe that you have used one of them to make bets on, or manipulate, any market whose purpose or effect is to adversely undermine the integrity of the product of Pari-Mutuel Bets or of a market.

You cannot designate individuals to be counterparties in any of your betting offers.

In addition to the common practice of matching bets, many markets on Betfair use a process called "cross-selection matching" or "cross matching" to match bets.When a betting request cannot be matched by an opposing party in the same selection through cross-selection matching, Betfair will attempt to match the betting request with liquidity not matched in the remaining market selections.

We do not guarantee that each offer that is shown as pending on our website is available while waiting for acceptance thereof.All or part of the betting offer shown on the Exchange as available with rates or a specific price can be successfully cancelled by one or more counterparties before acceptance thereof is processed through the Exchange system.In said case, the offer for a bet will be removed before the acceptance of the other offer is known.However, your failed attempt to accept the bet before the offer is made will be published as an offer for other users.

Best rates application

The Best Rates Application function allows customers to match their bet with the best rates available on the Exchange.

With the Best Rates Application function activated, if there are better rates available or if they become available later, after having made your betting request, it will automatically be matched with the better rates.

However, if the Best Rates Application function is deactivated, your bet will not be matched if there are better rates available or if they become available later after having made your betting request.Instead, your betting request will expire and you will have to resend your bet with the improved rates.

The Best Rates Application function is activated by default for all customers and is the configuration recommended by Betfair.By using the Exchange, you accept that the Best Rates Application will be activated by default.

To obtain more information about the Best Prices Application, you can consult this.

    - A bet of €6.00 for an 8 fold accumulator (with legs in different races) would allow you to watch the first six races (in which you have a leg), but not the seventh or eighth, since the average amount per race (after these 6 initial races) is lower than the minimum amount of €1.00.

    - Antepost and Special bets do not provide access to the Betfair Video service.

ABOUT US — BETFAIR CHARGES

Betfair charges

Introduction

There are two types of charges that you may be required to pay. The charges described in the "General charges" section apply in relation to your Betfair account and therefore are relevant to all customers. In addition, there are certain charges that only apply in particular circumstances to customers of the Betfair Exchange. Further details of all of the following charges can be found in the relevant sections below:

All charges are inclusive of VAT, if applicable.

General charges

Charges relating to the deposit and withdrawal of funds to or from Betfair are set out in the deposit and withdrawal pages within the "My account" section on the Betfair website.

Charges applicable only to the Betfair Exchange

For the vast majority of Betfair Exchange customers, the only charges paid to Betfair will be commission on net winnings in an Exchange market, as set out in more detail in Section 1 below.

A small number of customers who, in the long-term, generate very little commission compared to the amount they win may incur premium charges. Any customer affected by this charge will be notified in advance. Details of the premium charge are set out in section 3.

1. Commission, Market Base Rate

This section only applies to the Betfair Exchange.

Betfair charges a commission on your net winnings on a market. If you have a net loss on a market, you do not pay commission.

Commission is calculated by multiplying your net winnings by the 2% Market Base Rate

In order to see the Market Base Rate applicable to you, please refer to emails and web messages from Betfair setting out current charges.

Sports multiples

Betfair charges commission on winning sports multiples bets. The commission is usually 6.5% of winnings but may vary from time to time. Always check the Rules tab to be sure what commission rate applies. If your multiple bet loses, you do not pay commission.

3. Premium Charges

The Premium Charge only applies in respect of bets placed on the Betfair Exchange and it does not apply to any bets placed on other Betfair products.

In addition to the other charges detailed above, a small number (less than 0.5%) of our most successful customers will incur Premium Charges.

Any customer affected by the Premium Charge will be notified in advance.

Calculating potential charges

Each week Betfair will calculate your "gross profits" made, and your "total charges" generated over the lifetime of your account. The details of these calculations are explained below.

You will only be considered for the Premium Charge if your account is in profit and only if the total charges generated since joining Betfair are less than 20 % of your gross profits.

The vast majority of customers, and even the majority of those whose betting on Betfair is profitable since they joined, do not meet both these conditions and will not incur the Premium Charge.

While those conditions accurately describe our most successful customers, they might also apply to new customers who have only bet in a few markets, or those whose accounts are in profit because of a significant big win. To ensure that those accounts are not inadvertently charged, we have added two further conditions: any single win that constitutes more than 50% of lifetime gross profits will be excluded from the calculation, and customers will only be considered for the Premium Charge after they have bet in more than 250 markets.

Each customer will also have a €1000 allowance against the Premium Charge. This means that every customer considered for the Premium Charge will be exempted from the first €1000 of the charge incurred.

Please note that for the purposes of calculating the charge we will assume that the charge has been in place since Betfair launched in June 2000. This means that we will consider all customers to have generated charges equal to at least 20 % of lifetime gross profits as of the 12th October 2009. However, this also means that for some customers, some or all of the €1000 allowance against the charge will have been used prior to 12th October 2009 in order to offset hypothetical charges paid. Assuming hypothetical charges had been paid prior to introduction of the charge, it would have the effect of reducing the amount that customers would typically incur.

Each week the customers who meet all the conditions set out above will be charged the lesser of:

o The difference between 20% of the previous week's gross profits and the total charges generated during the week, and

o The difference between 20% of gross profits and the total charges generated during the lifetime of the account

This means that you will not be faced with a premium charge that is more than 20% of your gross profits for the previous week. Please note that this figure applies exclusively to the maximum amount of Premium Charge payable. It is possible for the total amount of Premium Charges and commission paid to exceed 20 %.

Please note that the second of the two calculations set out above can only ever reduce the premium charge and will apply on the rare occasion that the difference between 20 % of gross profits and the total charges generated during the lifetime of the account is less than the same calculation for the previous week.

Premium Charges will be deducted from customer accounts weekly (on Wednesdays) in relation to the previous week's activity (Monday to Sunday).

Accounts that relate to one person, entity, API subscription or a Master account with related sub-accounts (trading version only) are treated as one customer for the purposes of calculating Premium Charges. Note that no Betfair Points will accrue for Premium Charges.

In circumstances where Betfair considers, in its absolute discretion, that multiple accounts have been used by one person or group of persons in order to avoid or reduce liability for the Premium Charge, Betfair will be entitled to treat those accounts as if they relate to one person for the purposes of calculating Premium Charges. In such circumstances, Betfair will link those accounts and the linked accounts will be jointly and severally liable for any unpaid Premium Charge. The premium charge will be debited from any such account(s) where applicable.

* By "gross profits" we mean the amounts won, excluding total charges, less the amounts lost, on all Betfair markets.

** By "total charges" we mean all commission generated by Betfair as a result of your betting plus any premium charges you have incurred. "Commission generated" includes half the commission paid on winnings, but also half the commission that Betfair makes from the other customers who win in markets in which you have lost, which we call "implied commission". When you win, Betfair collects commission at your rate of commission, but when you lose, the commission collected by Betfair from the winners is at their rate. We will therefore determine the commission generated by your betting activity to be:

Commission generated = (commission + implied commission) ÷ 2
where
Implied commission = market losses x 3%
We divide by 2 because otherwise we would be counting each euro of commission twice.

Premium Charge summary

You will only be considered for the Premium Charge if, over the lifetime of your account, you satisfy the following criteria:

o Your account is in profit

o Your total charges generated are less than 20 % of gross profits, and

o You bet in more than 250 markets

Two further conditions reduce the likelihood that you will be required to pay the Premium Charge:

o Any single win that constitutes more than 50% of your gross profits over the lifetime of your account will be excluded from the calculation, and

o Each customer will have a lifetime allowance of €1000 against the Premium Charge.

Each week the customers who meet all the conditions set out above will be charged the lesser of:

o The difference between 20 % of the previous week's gross profits and the total charges generated during the week, and

o The difference between 20 % of gross profits and the total charges generated during the lifetime of the account

Examples:

Example 1
You have won gross profits of €10,000 since joining Betfair having bet in at least 800 markets.
You have paid total charges of €980, all of which has been paid through commission generated.
You have not been charged any Premium Charges to date although you have fully used up your allowance of €1000.
During the previous week you won €500 and paid total charges of €80.
You are therefore charged €20 in Premium Charges ((€500 x 20%) - €80 = €20).

Example 2 — Charge allowance
You have won gross profits of €10,000 since joining Betfair having bet in at least 320 markets.
You have generated €1050 in commission and paid no Premium Charge to date.
During the previous week you won €500 and paid total charges of €50.
In the absence of a charge allowance you would have been charged Premium Charges of €50 ((€500 x 20%) - €50 = €50).
However, the €50 is offset against the €1000 charge allowance meaning that no additional Premium Charge is paid.
You then carry over the balance of your charge allowance (€950) to offset against potential future Premium Charges.

Example 3 — Excluding "big" wins
You have won gross profits of €8000 since joining Betfair having bet in at least 500 markets.
You have paid total charges of €1025, all of which has been paid through commission generated.
During the previous week you won €5000 from a single market and paid total charges of €125.
As the win constitutes more than 50% of your total gross profits since joining Betfair, it is excluded for the purposes of calculating the Premium Charge.
However, the commission generated on the win does contribute towards total charges paid.
After the win is removed you have gross profits of €3000 and total charges of €1025 and therefore incur no additional Premium Charge.

Premium Charges at higher rates

Higher rates of Premium Charge will apply to the very small number of customers (less than 0.1%) who satisfy the following conditions over the lifetime of their account:

o Lifetime net profits*** exceed €250,000

o Commission generated less than 40% of lifetime gross profits

o Bet in more than 1000 markets

The Premium Charge rate applied to each customer who satisfies these conditions is dependent on their lifetime commission generated to gross profits ratio. The exact rate will be determined by the following table:

Lifetime commission generated to gross profits ratio

Applicable Premium Charge rate

< 5%

60%

5%–10%

50%

10%+

40%

Please note that any single market win that constitutes more than 50% of your lifetime gross profits will be excluded from all calculations.

The amount of Premium Charge incurred by each customer will be calculated in exactly the same way as the standard Premium Charge with the exception that the standard 20% rate will be replaced with increased rate applicable to the individual in each case.

For the purposes of introducing a change to the Premium Charge rate that applies to your betting, we will assume that you have always incurred the Premium Charge at the prevailing rate. For example, if the Premium Charge rate applicable to your betting increases from 20% to 40%, we will assume that you have always paid Premium Charges at 40%. However, as explained in the "Calculating potential charges" section above, this also means that for some customers, some or all of the €1000 allowance against the charge will have been used in order to offset hypothetical charges paid. Assuming hypothetical charges had been paid prior to introduction of the charge, it would have the effect of reducing the amount that customers would typically incur.

It is possible that your lifetime commission generated to gross profits ratio will change to the extent that your applicable Premium Charge rate will require adjustment. Should your rate change, we will recalculate as if you had always incurred the Premium Charge at the new rate. If your rate has decreased (e.g. if your lifetime commission generated to gross profits ratio increases from 4.9% to 5.1% — moving you from a 60% rate to 50% rate), the Premium Charges you "overpaid" when being charged the higher rate previously will be used to offset future Premium Charges. If your rate has increased, Betfair will notify you directly and give you at least two weeks' notice before the increased rate takes effect. You are entitled to seek review of your Premium Charge rate at any time.

*** By "net profits" we mean the amounts won less the amounts lost, on all Betfair markets, less all commission paid and Premium Charges debited.

Security

Betfair Internet Security

We take our customers’ security seriously, and we have teams who focus solely on protecting customer information from online threats. We also want to keep our customers informed about the way we store and protect your information, and responsibly disclose vulnerabilities, so that you can take any necessary precautions.

What you can do, to stay safe

There are basic security principals that you should keep in mind:

  • Never use your Betfair login details on another site.
  • Keep your browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE, etc.) and operating system (Windows, OSX, Linux, Android, iOS, etc) updated to the latest available versions.
  • If you’re using mobile, keep your app updated to the latest version, and be sure you are installing the verified version from us in the App Store or Play Store.
  • Log out of your account if you’re not going to be using it for a while.
  • Never enter your login details on sites that don’t seem legit. Always check the domain name (betfair.com) and make sure the “lock” symbol that appears in the address bar is present – this means the site is secure.
  • Pay attention to emails. If you notice poor spelling or grammar, this can be a red flag, as can a return address that’s not from our domain (@betfair.com or @mail.betfair.com). If you’re clicking on a link in an email, you can check where it’s taking you on a desktop by hovering over the link. Don’t open attachments that are applications (.exe, .msi, .bat, .ps1, .vbs, .app, etc).

Image

For an extra layer of security on your account, activate 2-Step authentication. Betfair's 2-Step Authentication reduces the chance of having your account compromised. In an addition to your username and password, you’ll be asked to enter a one-time code, which will be sent to your phone via SMS or displayed by the Google Authenticator application for iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone. You can do this either for every login, or only for new devices, depending on your settings.

This authentication scheme protects against a range of attacks and eliminates the risk of insecure or easily guessable passwords, or shared password being leaked from other websites you use. When you have enabled Betfair's 2-Step Authentication, attackers not only have to know or guess your username and password, but also guess an additional one-time password, which changes every 30 seconds.

It’s very difficult to perform this type of attack due to the computational complexity it carries. With two-step authentication your Betfair account will have the best protection available.

If you are logged into your account for 24 hours without using it, the system will automatically log you out for security reasons. We recommend that you change your password every four to six months. Your password should be unique (a mixture of numbers, letters and characters) and known only to you.

We also recommend that you run do regular scans for malware on your device with an Antivirus to make sure it’s protected against the latest threats.

How Betfair stores your information

ImageLike other betting and gaming companies, Betfair is required to collect personal information during the registration process, in order comply with legal and regulatory requirements. We are very aware that we have a responsibility to protect your personal information and maintain your privacy. Within Betfair, only employees that have a genuine business need to see your personal details are allowed access, and access to any personal information is fully monitored.

We will never use your personal information for purposes other than those necessary to operate our website and products. We sometimes use data processing agencies and, where we do, we perform rigorous checks to make sure that these companies are reputable and will look after your data.

Whenever you register, login, make payments or send us other sensitive information we use SSL/TLS technology to make sure the information you are entering is encrypted in transit.

Every transaction made with Betfair can be made with the utmost confidence, because every piece of information you enter will be garbled so that, in the unlikely event that it does fall into the wrong hands, will be unreadable. For more information on this matter visit the Betfair Privacy Policy page.

How Betfair protects your information

ImageBetfair employs numerous technologies to help protect our customers from attackers on the Internet. At every stage, from product design and development through to operations, we have security in our minds. We use a number of enterprise-class technologies to provide a high level of security. The servers in our data centres are physically secured with biometrics, guards and cameras. Our systems are separated with firewalls, intrusion detection systems and traffic analysis solutions that examine every byte of data as it enters and then moves around within our data centres. We monitor for unauthorised changes, tampering and viruses. Automated tools continuously scan our IT systems looking for any problems where software needs patching, or where security configuration could be improved. We scan all of our software using specialist tools and perform penetration tests, or ethical hacking, against everything before it goes live on our site. All of this technology means you can be confident that using Betfair's products has the same level of safety you'd normally associate with online banking or large financial services companies.

Betfair is proud to be ISO27001 certified, the de-facto global standard for Information Security Management. This means we have looked at our business and identified the necessary security management, policies, standards and procedures to protect our customers and our business. ISO27001 certification demonstrates that we are serious about delivering premium quality security, that we willing to undergo regular independent audit and that we are committed to reviewing and maintaining our security features in the future.

ImageBetfair is also PCI certified and, as a Level 1 merchant, we undergo annual PCI validation by an external and independent PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA). You can have confidence that your payment card details are stored and used securely.

Once we receive your card details, we will carry out a check of your card with our credit card checking facility. This ensures that the number you entered actually corresponds to a real credit card number and is not one that has been made up. We also do random security checks on a continuous basis to ensure that a card is not being fraudulently used. Card data is, at no time, sent over the internet during the validation. Incorrect details associated with your card will result in your account being suspended for security reasons.





Responsible disclosure

We take the security of our customers and employees’ data very seriously. If you believe you have discovered a potential security vulnerability on any of our Betfair applications or services, please help us fix it as quickly as possible by reporting your findings in our public bug bounty program available in HackerOne.

Image

Publicly disclosing a vulnerability can put the community at risk, so we urge you to keep matters private until we are able to resolve the issue.
