General betting rules

In these Betting Rules, Sportdec is referred to as “Sportdec”, “us”, “we” or “our” and you are referred to as “you” or “your”.

Placing Bets

  1. We reserve the right to accept or refuse the whole or any part of any proposed bet.
  2. A bet shall be deemed to be void if the required stake is not transmitted in full before the event commences, unless (in our absolute discretion) we accept the bet subject to authorisation.
  3. Bets may not be cancelled or changed once the bet has been placed and acceptance of the bet has been confirmed by us, either in the form of a generated bet receipt or in the open or settled bets section of your account.
  4. It is your responsibility to ensure details of any bets that you place are correct.
  5. All prices are subject to variation and, save where the starting price has been selected by you, the price shall be fixed at the time a bet is placed.
  6. We cannot be held responsible for any typing, human or software error which leads to any errors or omissions in relation to any product or in respect of any publication on the app of any prices or results other than those intended. We reserve the right to void any bets which have been accepted at an incorrect price.
  7. We are not responsible for the accuracy of any offers, prices or other information displayed on any third­ party websites including but not limited to price comparison or affiliate websites and we accept no liability in respect of any such errors.
  8. It is your responsibility to understand the betting and gaming terminology used on the app and the mechanism of any bet types that you select. If you have any queries as to how certain bet types work, please contact Customer Services before placing any such bet. We cannot accept any responsibility if you place a bet which you do not fully understand.
  9. A number of bets may be treated as being a single bet when a customer places multiple copies of the same bet. When this occurs all bets will be voided apart from the first bet struck.
  10. The use of a “banker” selection or selections to circumvent online limits is not permitted.
  11. Where a number of multiple bets, involving identical or very similar selections, are received by different customers within a short timeframe, we reserve the right to void all such bets, even after the bets have been determined.

Maximum Winnings

The maximum amount that can be won by one customer in one twenty­four hour period, regardless of the size of the stake or the number of bets placed, is £/€100,000 (or its equivalent amount in a currency accepted by us on the app).

Non Runners / Non­Participants And Void Selections

  1. Save in respect of bets placed under ante post terms (see section 5 below), the stake placed on single bets will be returned in circumstances where the subject of the relevant bet has been entirely withdrawn from the relevant event prior to its commencement. In accumulative bets the stake will run on to the remaining selection(s) with a double becoming a single, a treble becoming a double and so on.
  2. Unless a specific reference is made in the individual section that covers the sport, all bets placed on abandoned or postponed events shall be treated as void. However, bets in markets that have already been resolved at the time of abandonment and which could not be altered regardless of future events (such as the identity of the first goal scorer) will be settled in accordance with its outcome.

Dead Heats

In the event of a DEAD HEAT the stake money on a selection is divided by the number of runners or competitors involved in the dead heat. The full odds are then paid proportionately to the divided stake, with the remainder of the stake money being treated as a losing stake.

Ante Post Betting (Future Events)

  1. Ante post bets are those placed at prices on:
    • Horse Racing prior to the final declaration stage;
    • Sports events prior to the start of an event, with the exception of bets on a match, a single race event or an individual heat/stage;
    • All special (non­sporting) events.
  2. You agree that ante post bets are accepted on the understanding that you will lose your stake if your selection does not participate. No Tattersalls’ Rule 4 deductions are made from winning bets except when a runner in a horse race is balloted out.
  3. Bets placed after the start of a sports event are not classified by us as ante post. Unless otherwise stated in the Sport Rules for a particular sport, the start of an event is defined as the first time at which any competitive action commences. Stakes will be refunded on competitors/teams who do not participate in the relevant event after the bet is placed, unless they have been eliminated by competition rules. A Tattersalls’ Rule 4 deduction will be applied to winning bets placed after the competitor’s/team’s last competitive action and prior to the market being re­formed.
  4. Stakes will not be refunded on competitors/teams who start an event and then withdraw.
  5. In total tournament/series markets (e.g. winner of the golden boot), individuals named in the team squad will be deemed to have participated whether or not they have taken part in any competitive action.
  6. Ante post each way doubles, trebles etc. are settled win to win, place to place.
  7. Ante post bets are settled at the price and place terms applicable at the time of acceptance.
  8. Place only bets and forecast bets are not accepted at ante post odds. If taken in error, place only bets will be void. Forecast bets will be settled on the computer straight forecast.
  9. The terms of any bespoke bets placed following a written request from an individual customer will be clarified in our written response to the customer prior to the bet being placed.
  10. If a horse race is cancelled, rescheduled to run at another racecourse or run on a different surface (turf to all weather or vice versa) then ante post bets will be deemed to be void.
  11. If a horse race is re­scheduled to run at the same race course then all ante post bets will stand. However if the race reopens or reverts back to a previous forfeit or declaration stage then we will allow any *open ante post bets to be cancelled by mutual consent.
  12. An *open ante post bet is where the selection is a declared runner or quoted in the betting market at the time of postponement. Bets can only be voided by mutual consent prior to the final declaration stage.

Related Contingencies

  1. Accumulative/multiple bets are not accepted where the outcome of one part of the bet contributes to the outcome of another.
  2. For example: £10/€10 double on Liverpool to win the FA Cup semi­final 3­0 and Liverpool to qualify for the final. The second part of the bet is wholly reliant on the successful outcome of the first stage of the double.
  3. If taken in error the stakes will be equally divided in respect of the contingent elements of the accumulative/multiple bet and shall be separated into individual bets. However, where the related parts of the bet are resolved at different times, unless ‘special double’ or ‘special accumulative’ odds are available, bets will be settled as instructed with the odds for the second or subsequent legs being determined at each individual stage.

Sports Governing Bodies

  1. It is a condition of your use of the Betting Service that you represent that:
    • you are not prohibited from entering into the bet by any term of your contract of employment or any rule of a Sports Governing Body, which applies to you.
    • you are not aware of any circumstance which would make the placing of the bet a breach of a rule on betting applied by a Sports Governing Body.
    • where the bet is placed on the outcome of a race, competition or other event or on the likelihood of anything occurring, you do not know the outcome of the event or have not been involved in any circumstances which might affect its potential outcome.
  2. If we become aware or suspect that any such representation by you is or may be false your stake will be forfeited and we shall not be obliged to pay any winnings which might otherwise have been payable in respect of the relevant placed bet.

Data Supplied By A Third Party

Please be aware that any data (such as current scores or elapsed time) that is displayed on the app or on our text screens is sourced from a ‘live feed’ provided by a third party and may be subject to time delay and/or be inaccurate. If you rely on this data to place bets, you do so entirely at your own risk and we accept no responsibility for any loss (direct or indirect) suffered by you as a result of your reliance on it.

Rigging

We reserve the right to withhold payment if we become aware or suspect that the prices of a particular event have been manipulated or where a race, event or match has been rigged. Pending the outcome of any investigation and, in our absolute discretion, we reserve the right to declare bets on any such race, event or match as void.

Late Bets

  1. Bets may be placed up to the scheduled start time of the event or a pre­determined time, whichever is the earlier.
  2. Any bet inadvertently accepted after the betting has closed or where the event was resolved or at a stage where the customer could have any indication of the outcome will be settled at the correct price at the time the bet was placed.
  3. Bets placed after the final event result is known will be voided.
  4. Should there be a dispute over the start time of an event/market where an official starting time is not given by that sports governing body, then the time that we determine the event to have started and the time at which the bet was placed according to our transactional logs (if recorded) will be conclusive evidence in the settlement or non-settlement of all bets in respect of that event/market.

Bet Settlement

We offer fractional or decimal odds. However, please be aware that the fractional odds format takes precedence in settling bets.

If a penalty is awarded then not taken for any reason it is deemed to have not been awarded in the first place.

If a match is abandoned during any of these time bands, all bets placed will be void, unless the bet has already been settled.

In the event of any dispute on any market, settlement will refer to the official websites of the league or competition or relevant football authority for the match or competition in question for goals.

In the case of this data not being publicly available or published for goals and for all cases of corners, free kicks, throw ins, goal kicks, penalty awarded/missed/scored, settlement will be made on data from the official website of the competition or if unavailable data transmitted by our Data Providers.

This settlement data and results can be obtained on request from Customer Services.

Half Time Over/Under Goals:

Winning bets must predict whether the total number of goals is under or over the quoted level in the first half. In the event of the match being abandoned before Half Time, all bets will be void. Bets will stand for matches abandoned after Half Time has been reached.

Top Goalscorer:

Only goals scored within the quoted division are counted for this market irrespective of the team (within that division) for which they are scored. The team quoted alongside the player is for reference only. Only league goals count ­ excluding playoff matches. Own goals do not count. Dead­heat rules apply.

Top Tournament Goalscorer:

Top goalscorer in a competition will be settled in accordance with dead heat rules if players finish on the same number of goals scored, regardless of whether an official result is determined by other means by the sports ruling body. FIFA/UEFA’s awarding of the Golden Boot/Top Tournament Goalscorer in the event of players being tied on the same number of goals, will have no bearing on our settlement of the market. We will settle the market in accordance with our normal dead heat rules

Team to Score /Second/Third/Next Goal:

Winning bets select the team to score the next goal up until the end of Normal Time. Own goals count to the side credited with the goal. Bets will be void if 90 Minutes’ Play is not completed, unless the bet has already been settled.
