Aside from the following special betting rules, the common betting rules apply. The special rules will take precedence over the common rules nevertheless.

1.) Overtime: If not otherwise stated, bets will be settled on the result including overtime.

2.) Playing Time: If the match is abandoned before the end of the regular playing time, the results are regarded to be official after 55 minutes playing time. If not otherwise stated, this applies to all kinds of bets.
Exception: In “Live betting” the match must be completed for bets to stand. If the match is abandoned at any time then all bets will be void, except bets that were already decided at the time of abandonment.

3.) Highest Scoring Quarter: All four quarters of play must be completed. Overtime does not count. If the game is abandoned then all bets will be void unless there have already been scored most points in the 4th quarter at the time of abandonment.

5.) Half Time / Full Time: Overtime does not count.

6.) Highest Team Points (Group betting): If a team is involved in an abandoned event then the points this team has made before abandonment do count and all bets are valid. If one of the involved teams´ matches does not start on the scheduled calendar day (at venue) and venue for whatever reasons then all bets will be void.

7.) 1st Drive will result in: The drive is regarded to have started upon commencement of a first down. The drive is regarded to have ended when the attacking team either scores or loses possession of the ball without regaining the ball within the same play. This rule also applies to bets on subsequent drives. There are 2 betting options:
- “Score”: This will be the winning option if the attacking team scores.
- “Any other outcome”

8.) Most Points Which Half: Overtime does not count for the result unless otherwise stated. If the game is abandoned before 60 minutes of play all bets will be void, unless more points have been already scored in the second half in which case all bets stand.

9.) Division Champions: If the season is shortened for any reason then bets will be settled based on the Division Champion declared by the respective governing body.

10.) If a moneyline, total or handicap bet ends in a draw and no odds have been offered for this option, all bets will be void.

11.) How many regular season wins will team X record?: All regular season games must be completed for bets to stand. If the season is shortened for whatever reason, then bets will be void, unless the highest possible option has already been attained in which case all bets stand.

12.) Canadian Football league – Arena Football League: If for any reason the season is shortened, then all long-term bets will be void, unless already determined (e.g. the highest possible option has already been attained).

13.) “Grand Salami”/NFL: This bet refers to the total number of points scored over all the matches played on a given day. Only games played on the day (according to the NFL schedule) count. Should any games be postponed or any games added to the schedule after the initial odds have been posted, then all bets will be void. Should any games be abandoned during play, then all bets will be void.

14.) Player special bets: the respective player must compete in the game for bets to stand.

15.) First Touchdown Scorer in the game (regular time only): All bets stand, regardless of the actual participation of the selected player. The bets will be settled referring to the first player which ends up with the ball in the end zone. The passing Quarterback is irrelevant for betting purposes.
