Betting Rules and Information

90-Minute Betting: Bets will only count the result of the 90 minutes game including any added time added for injuries or delays.  

Therefore the outcome of the bet will be determined once the full-time whistle is blown. Any results decided in extra time and penalty shootouts will only be included if it’s stated in the bet. 

E.g. If a game ends 1-1 but continues to extra time, the outcome of the bet would be decided as a draw.

Player to Score: If you choose to bet on a player to score, the result does not include any own goals scored by the player. If the selected player does not participate in the match, the bet will be void and your stake will be refunded. 

Match Postponements: If a match is postponed or rescheduled, your bet will remain valid if it takes place before midnight of the day following the date originally set for the match. If it is not resumed or completed within the mentioned time frame, all related bets on that match will be void and your stake will be refunded.
