Rugby Union and Rugby League

Rugby Union

General

The following rules include reasons for voiding bets.

Unless otherwise stated, rugby union bets are settled based on the result after the completion of regular time.

If the scheduled venue is changed, bets placed on that match before the change will be void. The event will then be reinstated with the updated venue.

If a bet is placed after the relevant result or outcome is known, then the bet will be void.

Abandonments, Cancellations and Postponements

If a match is postponed, bets will stand until 48 hours from the original kick-off time, after which time they will be void.

If a match starts but is abandoned before its completion, bets will be void unless an official result is declared by the relevant governing body. If an official result has been declared by the relevant governing body, that official result will govern Match Odds and Handicap market settlement but all other bets will be void unless their result has been unconditionally 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).

Outright Markets

For betting purposes, any team which has points deducted due to breaches of rules and regulations will still be deemed a starter. If at the time a deduction of points is announced, the loss of points means that only one eventuality can occur, then all bets on that team are void. Any bets placed after a points deduction may have odds adjusted accordingly.

All Outright markets which state ‘Regular Season’ (or similar) are deemed to mean the official standings of teams after all matches of the predetermined season are played and before any playoff matches have commenced.

Tryscorer Markets

First, Last, Xth Tryscorer

If a penalty try is scored, we will pay out on the penalty try option if we have offered it as a selection. If the penalty try option is not offered, then we will: (i) (for First Tryscorer markets), pay out on the basis of the second try where the first try is in fact a penalty try and (ii) (for Last Tryscorer markets), pay out on the basis of the penultimate try where the last try is in fact a penalty try. For ‘Xth Tryscorer’ markets, if the penalty try option is not offered, we will void any bets placed on the Xth try to be scored by a particular player if that try is in fact a penalty try.

If a substitute is not on the field before the first try is scored, bets on that player will be void in First Tryscorer-related markets. If a substitute comes on at any stage during the match, bets on them will stand for all other tryscorer markets. If they do not take any part in the match, bets on all tryscorer markets will be void. Bets placed in this market on the selection ‘No Tryscorer’ should be win only. If any each way bets are placed on this selection, all place parts of the bet will be void.

First 2nd Half Tryscorer

Bets placed on substitutes will be void if the first 2nd half try is scored before they come on.

First Tryscorer Insurebet

If the player fails to score the first try but does score a try in the match, then the bet stake will be returned. If a substitute is not on the field before the first try is scored, then bets on that player will be void.

Position to Score Try Markets

If a penalty try is the first try scored, we will pay out on the position of the next tryscorer for Position to Score First Try markets. For Position to Score Xth Try markets, in the event of a penalty try, we will pay out on the position which scores the next try (for example, if the first try scored in a match is a penalty try and the second try is scored by a forward, then a forward will be deemed to have scored both the first and second tries). If there is no try scored after the penalty try, then this market will be void.

To Win in Extra Time

If there is no winner following extra time, dead heat rules will apply.

Tryscorer Matchbets, Kicker Matchbets and To Score the Most Points Matchbets

Both players must be in the starting 15 for bets to stand. If there is no ‘Tie’ or ‘Draw’ selection offered and the result is a tie, then all bets will be void.

Rugby League

General

The following rules include reasons for voiding bets.

Unless otherwise stated, bets on Super League and NRL matches will be settled based on the official result (including any extra time), except for bets placed on Match Odds and Match Handicap markets, which will be settled based on the result after the completion of regular time.

Unless otherwise stated, any bets placed on competitions other than Super League or NRL will be settled based on the result after the completion of regular time.

If the result of a match after extra time is a draw, dead heat rules will apply to all bets where a winner has not been officially declared. For the avoidance of doubt, in such circumstances, all winning margin bets (including bets placed on Dozen Winning Margins), will be settled as losers, given that neither team will have won the match.

If the scheduled venue is changed, bets placed on that match before the change will be void. The event will then be reinstated with the updated venue.

If a bet is placed after the relevant result or outcome is known, then the bet will be void.

Abandonments, Cancellations and Postponements

If a match is postponed, bets will stand until 48 hours from the original kick-off time, after which time they will be void.

If a match starts but is abandoned before its completion, bets will be void unless an official result is declared by the relevant governing body. If an official result has been declared by the relevant governing body, that official result will govern Match Odds and Handicap market settlement but all other bets will be void unless their result has been unconditionally 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).

Outright Markets

Outright bets will be settled on official tournament results. For betting purposes, any team which has points deducted due to breaches of rules and regulations will be deemed a starter. If at the time a deduction of points is announced, the loss of points means that only one eventuality can occur then all bets on that team are void. Any bets placed after a points deduction may have odds adjusted accordingly.

Any loss of titles after the completion of a Grand Final won’t be taken into account, and all bets will stand.

All Outright markets which state ‘Regular Season’ (or similar) are deemed to mean the official standings of teams after all matches of the predetermined season are played and before any playoff matches have commenced.

First and Last Tryscorer

In the event of a penalty try being the first or last try scored, we will pay out on the penalty try option if offered. If the penalty try option is not offered, the player who would (in our reasonable discretion) have scored the try (i.e. had foul play not occurred) will be deemed to have scored the try for resulting purposes.

First 2nd Half Tryscorer

If a player is included in their team's matchday squad, all bets on that player will stand regardless of whether the player is on the field for the first 2nd half try or not.
