Is Extra Time included in my bet?

All soccer bets are settled on the result at the end of 90 minutes including stoppage time unless specifically stated otherwise.

This means that for most bet types any goals, corners, free kicks, goal kicks or bookings that occur in extra time will not count towards your bet.

For example, you place a bet for under 10 corners and at the end of regular time 8 corners had been taken. Your bet would be settled as a win even if 3 additional corners were taken in extra time.


What Markets do include Extra Time?

Markets that will include extra time will specifically state extra time is included or use phrases such as ‘To Qualify’, ‘Lift the Trophy’, or ‘To Win the Tie’.

I bet on the Win-Draw-Win market, my team won in extra time why is my bet resulted as a loss?

Generally, when a match goes to extra time it means that it was a draw at the end of regular time. If this is the case all Win-Draw-Win bets will be settled with Draw as the winning selection.

If you are looking to bet on the team who will ultimately win the match including extra time and penalties, you can do so by placing a bet on the “To Qualify”, “To Win the Tie” or “To Lift the Cup” as appropriate to the match.


What is Draw No Bet?

Draw No Bet, is a type of bet that allows you to place a bet on a team to win at the end of regular time. If the match is a draw at the end of regular time you will be refunded your stake.


What is Double Chance?

Double Chance is a type of bet that allows you to pick two options for the result of the match at the end of regular time. You can select Team A and a Draw, Team B and a Draw or you can select Team A or Team B.

For your bet to win the following must occur:

  • Team A or Draw – Team A must win or draw the match at the end of regular time.
  • Team B or Draw – Team B must win or draw the match at the end of regular time.
  • Team A or Team B – The match must not be a draw at the end of regular time.

How does Handicap Betting work?

Sportsbet offers both Handicap Betting and Asian Handicap betting, in these examples we will use the France v Australia match from the 2018 World Cup.

Handicap Betting

When placing a bet on the handicap you will have 3 selections to choose from.

As a quick guide the win conditions for these selections are as follows:

  • France (-2.0) – France must win by 3 goals or more
  • Handicap Draw (-2.0) – France must win by exactly 2 goals.
  • Australia (+2.0) – France must win by 1 goal, the match ends in a draw or Australia win the match.

You will often see Alternate Handicaps which will work in the same way but have a different goal amount assigned. This may be (+1.0), (+3.0) or a reversal of the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ symbols.

Asian Handicap

There are two types of Asian Handicaps, in both cases you choose between 2 options.

In this first example you can select France (-1.5) or Australia (+1.5).

 

The win conditions of this first market are as follows:

  • France (-1.5) – France must win by 2 goals or more.
  • Australia (+1.5) – France must win by 1 goal, match must end in a draw or Australia must win.

In the second example you can select France (-1.5, -2.0) or Australia (+1.5, +2.0).

When you place a bet on an Asian Handicap of this variety there are two handicaps listed per selection. You are placing half of your stake on each of the two handicaps listed in the brackets.

  • 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).
  • 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).

It is possible to win both handicaps, lose both handicaps or win one handicap but not the other. The win conditions for these selections are as follows:

  • France (-1.5, -2.0)
    • If France wins by exactly 2 goals you will win the (-1.5) Handicap and have the stake on the (-2.0) handicap returned.
    • If France win by 3 goals or more both handicaps will be settled as winners.
  • Australia (+1.5, +2.0)
    • If France wins by 2 goals, the (+2.0) handicap will have the stake refunded while the (+1.5) handicap will be settled as a loss.
    • If France win by 1 goal, the match is a draw or Australia win, both handicaps will be settled as a win.

What happens if the result is 0 in Odd or Even markets?

In the case where we offer Odd or Even markets, 0 will be considered an even number.


My Player didn’t start on the field, what happens to my bet?

My Player didn’t start on the field, what happens to my bet?

There are several markets available that allow you to bet on a player to score a goal or be booked during a match. This could be the first goalscorer, first player to be booked, a player to be sent off/booked, a player to score a goal in the match or a player to score the last goal of the match.

There is a chance your player doesn’t start on the field, so how does this affect your bet? The table below will help you understand the different situations that may occur.

What happens if the match is postponed or abandoned?

What happens if the match is postponed or abandoned?

If a match is abandoned after 90% of game time has been completed and the referee ends the match, all bets will be settled using the results at this time.

If less than 90% of game time has been played at the time of abandonment then bets will be void unless the result is already known. An example of this may be first goalscorer market or first half handicap when a match is abandoned at half time and the score is 1-0.

If a match is postponed and then resumed within one calendar day all bets will stand. The exception to this is if the match is restarted, in this case all live bets will be void.


How do “Time Of” markets work?

“Time Of” markets will allow you to select the minute an even will occur, a goal scored at 23mins 25seconds will be settled as the 24th minute.


What is the Stage of Elimination market?

The Stage of Elimination market allows you to select what stage you believe a team will not progress past. For Example if you believe Australia will not be one of the top two teams in their group then you would select “Group Stage” as the Stage of Elimination.


What is a clean sheet?

A clean sheet refers to when a team finishes a match without being scored against.

  • If Australia was to play France and the result was a 1-0 win to Australia, Australia would have a clean sheet and France would not.
  • If the score was 1-1, neither team has a clean sheet.
  • If France won 1-0, France would have a clean sheet and Australia would not.

What is a Booking?

A booking refers to when a player on the field is shown a yellow or red card by the referee.


How does Card Index work?

When betting on Card Index each team is awarded points based on the bookings to their players. Yellow card = 10 points; Red card = 25 points. If a player is shown a yellow card and subsequently sent off this counts as 35 points. The maximum booking points a single player can receive in one match is 35 points.

The team that gets the most Card Index points during the match during regular time is deemed the winner.

What is a Same Game Multi?

A same game multi allows you to combine multiple selections from the same match.


How to place a SGM?

Navigate to the game you wish to place your same game multi on, then select the tab that says “Same Game Multi”.

Then make your selections you would like to combine. Once satisfied with the selections you have made click “Place Multi”.

This will load up the bet confirmation, enter the stake you would like to place and then click “Confirm Bet”.

You will then receive confirmation that your bet has been placed successfully.

Why do my Same Game Multi odds calculate differently to a standard multi?

You may notice when combining two selections in a same game multi that the odds are not calculated by a straight multiplication of odds as you would see in a standard multi bet.

The reason for this is that markets within the same game are often related and have an influence on each other. For Example, combining Over 2.5 goals and Both Teams to Score may give you lower odds than expected while Under 2.5 goals and Both Teams To Score may give you much higher odds than you might expect.  This is due to the likelihood of both events occurring in the same match.


What happens if my Same Game Multi or #BYO bet has a leg that is void?

If a #BYOBet or a Same Game Multi has one or more legs void the entire bet will be void and the stake will be refunded to you.
