Basketball

NBA/NCAA Basketball

The following is applicable to NBA/NCAA Basketball events.

All games must take place on the same day local time for bets to stand. Should a game be called off with more than five minutes to play then all bets will be void, except for those where the outcome has already been determined. For example - a game is abandoned at 104-100 with five minutes left on the clock. In this instance the bets on over 203.5 points will be deemed the winner for settling purposes.

Game and Prop Betting

All games must start on the scheduled date (local stadium time) for bets to have action. If a game venue is changed, bets already placed will stand providing the home team is still designated as such. If the home and away team for a listed game play the fixture at the away team venue then bets will stand providing the home team is still officially designated as such, otherwise bets will be void.

There must be five minutes or less of scheduled game time left for bets to have action, unless the specific bet outcome is already determined.

In 2-Way bets, Push rules apply, unless otherwise stated. Bets on straight bets are returned, and in parlays the selection is treated as a non-runner.

Pre-Game Bets, Including Game Props

All pre-game bets include overtime, unless otherwise stated. Fourth quarter betting does not include overtime.

Player Match-Ups/Performances

Betting is available on the performance of a named player in a variety of achievements e.g. points, rebounds, assists, blocks, free throws. Push rules apply.

Relevant players must be dressed and see court-time for bets to have action. Overtime counts for any player props, unless specified otherwise.

Individual player's performances are matched for betting purposes in a player match-up. Handicaps may be used and are applied to each player's actual score to determine the result. Push rules apply.

  • Double/Double - player must record 10 or more in two or more of the following 5 statistical categories: points, rebounds, assists, blocked shots, steals
  • Triple/Double - player must record 10 or more in 3 or more of the following 5 statistical categories: points, rebounds, assists, blocked shots, steals

In-Game Bets INCLUDE Overtime

If a game is postponed or cancelled after the start there must be five minutes or less of scheduled game time left for bets to have action.

In-Game Half Bets INCLUDE Overtime

The first half must be completed for first half bets to stand. If a game is postponed or cancelled after the start, for game and second half bets there must be five minutes or less remaining for bets to have action, unless settlement of bets is already determined.

Outright, Division, Conference and Regional Betting

All bets stand regardless of team relocation, team name change or season length.

Series Betting

Bets are void if the statutory number of games (as stipulated by the respective governing organisation) are not completed or are changed.

First Basket Bets

Result based on the first score of the game, inclusive of free throws. Should a player not start the game, all bets on said player will be void, otherwise betting is all-in.

Settlement of Bets

Statistics provided by the official score(s) provider or the official website of the relevant competition or fixture will be used to finalize bets. Where statistics from an official score(s) provider or official website are not available or there is significant evidence that the official score(s) provider or official website is incorrect, we will use independent evidence to support bet settlement.

In the absence of consistent, independent evidence or in the presence of significant conflicting evidence, bets will be settled based on our own statistics.

 

All Basketball (Excluding NBA/NCAA)

The following is applicable to non-NBA/NCAA Basketball events (FIBA tournaments, European, Australian, Central American, South American and Asian Basketball competitions).

Any un-played or postponed game will be treated as a non-runner for settlement purposes, unless it is played within 36 hours of the initial scheduled starting time.

In the event of a game starting but not being completed then all bets will be void, except for those where the outcome has already been determined. For example - if a game is abandoned at 104-100 with five minutes left on the clock. In this instance the bets on over 203.5 points will be deemed the winner for settling purposes.

Overtime counts for all bets, unless otherwise stated, as well as the following:

  • 3-Way and Double Chance bets do not include Overtime
  • For player performance betting, player(s) must compete in the game to have action. Overtime counts for player performance betting.
  • In 2-Way bets, Push rules apply
  • Whenever there is a home and away game (with an aggregate points scored based format) full game bets will be settled according to the regular time result, and any overtime will not count (unless both games finish in a draw after regular time).
