Baseball

1. All games must start on their scheduled local date. If a game has been postponed to another day or cancelled before its due start time all selections on that game are void. If there is a void selection within a multiple or system bet, that individual selection will be voided and the bet will run on the remaining selections. For example, a treble containing one void selection becomes a double on the remaining two selections within the bet. The same approach will be applied to all multiple and system bets.


2. American and National League winner markets are settled on the winner of the two League Championship Series in the playoffs.


Pre Games Rules:


1. Listed pitchers must start - a wager that specifies both starting pitchers. Any variation constitutes no action. Wagers with ‘One specified pitcher’ and ‘Listed pitchers must start’ that were placed when the named pitcher was originally listed are no action if the listed pitcher is changed and is then re-listed back to the original pitcher.


2. It is the client’s responsibility to ensure they are aware of any relevant pitching changes.


3. Extra innings if played will count in all markets except the Win/Draw/Win market and all Inning/Period specific markets.


4½ innings rule:


If a game is 'called', or suspended, winners and losers for betting are official after at least 5 full innings of play unless the home team is leading after 4½ innings. If a game is 'called', or suspended, the winner is determined by the score after the last full inning (unless the home team scores to tie, or takes the lead in the bottom half of the inning, in which case the winner is determined by the score at the time the game is called). Suspended games do not carry over.


6½ innings rule:


Total and Run Line betting (for 7 innings games) - The game must complete at least 7 full innings (or 6½ innings if the team batting second is ahead) for bets to stand. However, in the event of a Mercy Rule being called, all bets will stand on the score at the time.


8½ innings rule:


Total and run-line (Handicap) betting - The game must go at least 9 full innings (or 8½ innings if the home team is ahead) for bets to stand. Suspended games do not carry over.

Win/Draw/Win Market – Extra innings do not count towards settlement. For 7 innings games - the game must complete 7 full innings (or 6½ innings if the team batting second is ahead) for bets to stand. For 9 innings games - the game must complete 9 full innings (or 8½ innings if the home team is ahead) for bets to stand. However, in the event of a Mercy Rule being called, all bets will stand on the score at the time.


Side and Prop Betting:


If a game is suspended, winners and losers for betting are certified after at least 5 innings of play, or four and a half innings (see 4 ½ Innings Rule) if the home team is winning. If a game is suspended, the winner is determined by the score after the previous full inning. (Unless the home team scores to tie, or takes the lead in the bottom half on the inning, in which case the winner is determined by the score at the time that the game is suspended.) Stakes will be refunded if the home team ties the game and it is then suspended.


Totals Betting:


1. When betting on Total Runs, the Game must go to 9 innings (See 8 ½ Innings rule if the home team is ahead) for bets to stand, except where the Game Total has already gone over. If a Score has already gone over the quoted Total, then bets on the Over will be settled as winners, with bets on the Under settled as losers. This includes where the natural conclusion of the game would have meant the outcome of the total quoted would be determined (e.g. MLB regular season game is called, or suspended at 5-5) bets on Over 10 or 10.5 would be settled as winners, with bets on Under 10 or 10.5 being settled as losers, since any natural conclusion to the match would have at least 11 runs. Specifically, for MLB Spring Training matches settlement will be based on 9 innings only, in instances when the natural conclusion rule could apply.


2. Team Totals - subject to 8 ½ innings rule EXCEPT where the team total has already gone over (if team total has already gone over the quoted total, then bets on the over will be settled as winners, with bets on the under settled as losers).


Run Line (Handicap) Betting:


When betting on Run Lines (Handicaps), the Game must go to 9 innings ( 8 ½ if the home team is ahead) for bets to stand.


Individual innings bet:


The full inning must be concluded for bets to stand unless additional play could not influence the result.


Winning Margins:


Subject to 8½ innings rule. Settlement includes extra innings for MLB. If an MLB game ends in a Tie when a game is called/suspended, bets will be void.


First x Innings bets:


Bets will be settled on the result after the first x innings have been completed. The full Inning or period must be played for bets to stand unless additional play could not influence the result.


First to Score bets:


The first team to reach the required number of runs will be settled as the winner. Bets on Neither require the 8½ innings rule to apply to be settled as winners.


Team Scoring First Wins Game:


8½ innings rule applies.

Player Related Markets:


1. On player related markets, the listed player(s) must start in the designated game for the wager to have action, otherwise bets are void.


2. Bets stand provided that 8½ innings are played. In the event of a pregame pitching change all bets will be void (no action).


3. Most Total Bases bets are calculated by adding all hits a player makes as per: Single = 1 Base, Double = 2, Triple = 3, Home Run = 4. Only these count.


In-Play Rules:


1. All In-play bets stand irrespective of starting pitchers.


2. Extra innings if played will count in all markets except the Win/Draw/Win market and all Inning/Period specific markets.


3. Money Line is subject to 4 ½ Innings rule.


4. Totals / Run Line are subject to 8 ½ Innings rule.


5. Win/Draw/Win Market – Extra innings do not count towards settlement. For 7 innings games - the game must complete 7 full innings (or 6½ innings if the team batting second is ahead) for bets to stand. For 9 innings games - the game must complete 9 full innings (or 8½ innings if the home team is ahead) for bets to stand. However, in the event of a Mercy Rule being called, all bets will stand on the score at the time.


6. Individual Innings / Period Specific: The full Inning or period must be played for bets to stand unless additional play could not influence the result.


MLB Playoff Games only:


For any suspended MLB playoff game that resumes within 72 hours of the suspension, all bets will stand and be settled after the completion of the game. If the game is not completed within 72 hours, following the time of suspension, then all bets will be void unless settlement of bets is already determined.


Non-MLB Baseball (including Minor League Baseball):


8½ innings rule applies although in the event of a Mercy Rule being called, all bets will stand on the score at the time. For 7 innings games played as part of a doubleheader the 6½ inning rule will apply.


Proposition Bets:


Regular Season Series Bets: Bets on MLB Regular Season Series are placed on the outcome of the first three games played in each Series. Pitchers cannot be listed; all wagers will have action irrespective of starting pitchers. Neither team can play another opponent between scheduled games. Only the first three games played count for betting purposes. Bets stand provided a minimum of two games have been played. If two of the first three games are postponed or cancelled – all bets are void. Called games will count towards grading provided it is officially declared a regulation game (4 ½ innings rule).
