Sports & Novelties Rules, Terms & Conditions

Sports & Novelties Rules, Terms & Conditions.

These rules were last updated on 20 February 2024 and the updates take effect from that date.

These rules (the ‘Sports & Novelties Terms and Conditions’) are incorporated into and form part of the Sportsbet Rules, Terms & Conditions


Part A - General Rules

Dead Heat Rule

1.1. In the event of a tie/draw/dead heat where no 'draw' option was offered by Sportsbet on such outcome, wagers will be paid at face value of the ticket (total payout figure including the initial stake) divided by the number of competitors drawing for that placing. Payout on dead heat selection/s will not be less than the customers stake (excluding Cashed Out bets)

1.2. In the event for which Each Way betting is available, place ties will be paid such that the Place portion of the face value of the ticket is multiplied by the remaining number of places available and divided by the number of competitors tying for those available number of placings.

1.3. In the event of a tie/dead heat where 'draw' odds were offered by Sportsbet , then all Win and/or Place wagers are unsuccessful and the Draw option is the successful wager. Where the draw option is offered, the bet is decided on the result at the end of normal time for all sports unless stated otherwise.

All-In Betting

'All-In' means that regardless whether or not a particular competitor or team or member of a team starts or completes the event on which a bet is placed, all bets stand and no refunds will be payable.

Team To Win Both Halves

For the purposes of 'Team To Win Both Halves' bets, the first and second half scores are treated as two separate events in their own right and the team selected must score more goals/points than the other team in each of the two halves (as opposed to where a team leads in the first and second half of the match overall). A draw in either half will result in bets on the team selected resulting as a loss. This is distinct from the Half-Time/Full-Time market which is explained in these Rules further below.

Half Time/Full Time

You need to select which team will win the first half (i.e. actually be in the lead at half time) and which team will win the match. Where we offer two way betting on the final result, without a draw price, then bets will be settled on the eventual winner of the match, including any overtime/extra-time played.”

Results and Market Settlement - General

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). 

Displayed statistics / Sportsbet Player Hub

Sportsbet is not liable, and the customer has no claim, in relation to any bets based on statistics or scores displayed on the Sportsbet platform, including the Sportsbet Player Hub.

Soccer

General Rules

198.1.1 All soccer bets will be settled in accordance with the results of our official data providers including RunningBall, BetGenius, Betradar and Opta unless otherwise specified.

198.1.2 All bets placed on soccer are based on the result at the end of regular time (including stoppage time i.e. 90 minutes plus stoppage time) unless otherwise specified. The only exceptions are for matches that are played for a lesser duration (e.g. 60, 70 or 80) 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 Sportsbet or not. If the game is played in an unusual format (e.g. 3 or 4 periods) then all half 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).

198.1.3. To the extent that a video assistant referee ("VAR") 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).

198.1.4 Where Sportsbet has settled a bet and, due to a subsequent VAR decision, it becomes apparent that such settlement was inaccurate, Sportsbet reserves 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).

198.1.5 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.

198.1.6 In order to eliminate any doubt, Sportsbet 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, Sportsbet will settle the bets based on the information acquired from data provides listed above and generally reputable online sources (acting reasonably).

198.1.7 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 (see Rule 198.20), (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 (see Rule 198.20) or (iv) the total number of tackles made by either team in a match.

198.1.8 Any outcome that is reviewed and overturned by the VAR (Video Assistant Referee) will be considered as final (e.g. The outcome will not count towards the total goals, cards, corners, shots on goals, throw ins, free kicks etc.).

198.1.9 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 home ground, in which case the match will be declared void.

198.1.10 For major tournaments where matches are played on neutral venues, when markets reference Home and Away, the team listed first will be the home team. For example, in the World Cup 2022 matchup Netherlands v Qatar, Qatar are the Away team.

198.1.11 Team Name Changes: If a soccer team’s name changes (including, but not limited to, sponsorship changes), all bets will stand provided that the team either has the same manager, plays at the same stadium or has the same players in its squad.

 

198.2 Match Abandonment/Postponement

198.2.1 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.

198.2.2 If a match is postponed, bets on that match will be void unless it kicks-off before midnight local-time on the same day. Games which have their kick-off altered well in advance to accommodate live TV, or to ease fixture congestion will not constitute a postponement.

198.2.3 For major tournaments (such as the World Cup), if a game is delayed beyond midnight local time, all bets will stand and be settled once the game is played, as long as the game is played to a finish within 72 hours.

198.2.4 COVID Impact on Soccer Matches: If a match is not played, postponed or cancelled due to COVID all markets will be void in accordance with rule 198.2.2.

198.3 Handicap Markets

198.3.1 Handicap & Alternative Handicap Betting

Handicap Betting results are determined by adding or removing a specific number of goals (i.e. the handicap) to a team’s score at the end of regular time (i.e. 90 minutes plus stoppage time).

The number of goals to be added or removed to a team’s score is denoted by a “+” or “-“, followed by the number of goals in brackets. For example:

  • the team with the (+1.0) handicap needs to either draw or win to be considered the winning selection;
  • the team with the (-1.0) handicap needs to win by 2 or more goals to be considered the winning selection; or
  • if the team with the (-1.0) handicap wins by exactly 1 goal, Draw (-1.0) will be the winning selection.

198.3.2 Asian Handicap Betting

There are three varieties of Asian Handicap Markets that Sportsbet may offer, these are Whole Ball Handicaps, Half Ball Handicaps and Split Ball Handicaps. The number of goals to be added or removed to a team’s score is denoted by a “+” or “-“, followed by the number of goals in brackets.

198.3.2.1 Whole Ball Handicaps

For bets on a Whole Ball Handicap market, if the score falls directly on the handicap line the stake of the bet will be returned. For example, France (-1.0) or Australia (+1.0).

Australia (+1.0) is selected with the result being a France win 1-0. The adjusted score applying the handicap is 1-1, in this case the stake of the bet is returned to the customer.

198.3.2.2 Half Ball Handicaps

The handicap is applied to the result of the match at the end of regular time and the team with the most goals after the handicap has been applied will be the winner. For example, France (-1.5) or Australia (+1.5):

  • France (-1.5) will be settled as a winner if France win by 2 or more goals:
  • Australia (+1.5) will be settled as a winner if France win by exactly 1 goal, the match is a draw at the end of regular time or if Australia win the match.

198.3.2.3 Split Ball Handicaps

Split Ball Handicap Betting results are determined by applying two separate handicaps (a Half Ball Handicap and a Whole Ball Handicap) to a team’s score at the end of regular time. The stake is then split in half and placed on each listed handicap. For example, a Split Ball Handicap market is offered, France (-1.5, -2.0) or Australia (+1.5, +2.0):

  • France (-1.5, -2.0) – This option means that you have placed half of your stake on France (-1.5) and half your stake on France (-2.0); or
  • Australia (+1.5, +2.0). – This option means that you have placed half of your stake on Australia (+1.5) and half your stake on Australia (+2.0).

All bets on other markets which have reached an unconditional conclusion whereby if the match was completed in its entirety, the outcome of the relevant bet would have been guaranteed, will remain settled accordingly.

Example: If a customer places a bet on Player A to win the match 2-0 in the set betting market, Player A loses the 1st set & a retirement occurs during the 2nd set, this bet will be deemed a loser as it is not possible for Player A to win the match 2-0.

In the event of retirement, all total games/handicap games related bets will be void unless the match has reached an unconditional conclusion whereby if the match was completed in its entirety, the outcome of the relevant bet would have been guaranteed.

Example 1: If a customer places a bet on Over 18.5 Total Match games and a retirement occurs with the score line 7-6 5-0, this bet will be deemed a Winner as should the match have reached its natural conclusion, it was guaranteed to reach at least 19 total match games. Conversely, all bets on Under 18.5 Total Match games will be deemed a Loser. Bets whereby the outcome is not guaranteed (eg. Over 19.5 Total Match Games) will be void.

Example 2: If a customer places a bet on Player A +6.5 games in the match handicap market and a retirement occurs with the score line 6-2 6-7 (12 games to 9), this bet will be deemed a Winner as should the match have reached its natural conclusion, Player A was guaranteed to lose no more than 3 games (total game deficit) to player B. Conversely, all bets on Player B -6.5 games will be deemed a Loser. Bets whereby the outcome is not guaranteed (eg. Player A +2.5 games) will be void.

Any bets taken in error for the Correct Score or Number of Games in the 3rd set will be void. For the purpose of bets taken relating to Total Games or game handicaps for the match, the Champions Tie-Break will be considered to be one game.

9. In the event of a tournament format (e.g. round robin), where a player winning a match does not necessarily mean that they progress to the next round, the player declared the official winner of the match by the relevant tournament governing body will be settled as a winner should a retirement occur after the completion of the first set.

10. Unless stated otherwise by us, where a handicap is attributed to an entire market (e.g. the market is entitled “Game Handicap 3.5") and there is no handicap attributed to any individual selection within that market, the relevant handicap will be applied to the first named selection.

Example 1: If a market is titled “Game Handicap 3.5” – Player A (first player listed in match) is attributed the handicap value of 3.5 games.
