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. This also applies to bets referring to the second half.

1.a.) 1st half contains quarter 1 and quarter 2, 2nd half contains quarter 3 and quarter 4. Overtimes count for bets concerning the 2nd half (unless otherwise stated, e.g. 'Half Time/Full Time') and for bets concerning the 4th quarter (unless otherwise stated, e.g. ‘Highest Scoring Quarter’).

2.) Playing Time: If the match is abandoned before the end of the official outcome, the results are regarded to be official if less than 5 minutes are left at the time of abandonment. that means e.g.

  • “43” minutes of play e.g. for NBA (48 minutes regular playing time)
  • “35” minutes of play e.g. for WNBA, NCAAB, FIBA (40 minutes regular playing time)

If not otherwise stated, this rule applies to all 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.

4.) Date of event:

  • US Basketball: All games must be played on the scheduled calendar day (at venue) and at the scheduled venue. Otherwise all bets on the game will be void.
  • All other Basketball: If a betting event is postponed or cancelled and restarted within 72 hours, the bets count for the restarted betting event.

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.) First Foul in the Game/Half/Quarter: This bet refers to all kinds of fouls – including personal and technical fouls. This rule also applies to subsequent fouls.

8.) First Foul Out: Bets will be settled on the first player to be “fouled out” as a result of 6 fouls in “American” and 5 fouls in “Non-American” Basketball called against the player in the game. Technical fouls and ejections do not count for this bet.

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 authority.

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.) “Grand Salami”/NBA: 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 NBA 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.

12.) "Grand Salami"/All other Basketball: The bet refers to the number of points scored for a specific date in which the league games are played.

13.) All results will be taken from the official statistics by the official websites for each league (i.e. box scores) and also be based on recordings of live games. In case the company's statistics (based on TV coverage) differ from the official statistics, bets will be settled according to the company's statistics.

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