SPORTS WAGERING RULES

  1. Patrons are responsible and must check their wager for accuracy before confirming their online wager. 

    (A) Wagers are only valid as confirmed and cannot be altered or disputed after the wager is placed.  The Company, is its sole discretion, may permit a wager to be voided.

    (B) Once a wager is accepted by the Company and Patron, wagers will not be altered or voided prior to the start of the Event for which the wager was placed except at the discretion of the Company’s management team (“Management”) and with the approval of the Patron.  No wagers shall be voided after the start of the wagering event on which a wager has been placed.  Wagers may only be rescinded with the approval of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

    (C) At any given time all current odds are available to Patrons.  Patrons will be notified of odds or line changes in the following manner:

    (i) Events and odds posted online will be updated simultaneously with any administrative change, e.g. a line or odds change.

    (D) Wagers are official, based on the most current event and wagering data available and may not always match propositions within the Company’s software.

    (E) Management reserves the right to protect the interest of both parties in the case of obvious mechanical or human error, e.g. wrong team or wrong time.

  2. Management in its sole discretion reserves the right to refuse any wager(s).

  3. The Company will determine all minimum and maximum wagers on all Events.

  4. All Events must be played on the date scheduled to have “Action”.  All wagers deemed “No Action” wagers will be refunded.

    (A) Events including golf tournaments, boxing matches, tennis matches, auto races, track and field events and international tournaments must be held within 30 days of scheduled date to be considered “Action”.  “No Action” wagers will be refunded.

    (B) Company is not responsible for location changes.  In situations where the event is played at a venue different to that listed, all bets on the event will stand provided the match is not switched to the opponent's ground and home and away team for a listed match are not reversed, in which case selections for that match will be made void.”

    (C) All boxing wagers, including Win, Go/Don’t Go, KO, Decision, Draw, etc., will have “Action” regardless of any change in weight class, scheduled length of the bout or championship sanction.  All boxing Pick-the-Round proposition wagers are “No Action” if the scheduled length of the bout is changed from the distance displayed by the Sports Book.

    (D) All Big Game future book wagers (index/odds to win a future contingency) are “Action” as long as a winner/champion is officially declared, regardless of season length, playoff format or date change.  All future book bets are “Action” regardless of team relocation, name change or a change in league affiliation.  “No Action” wagers will be refunded.

    (E) All league championship and division future book wagers (including conference, division, etc.) have “Action” as long as a winner/champion is officially declared, regardless of season length, playoff format or date change.  “No Action” wagers will be refunded.

  5. For betting purposes, the winner of an Event will be determined on the date of the Event’s conclusion according to these House Rules and New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement Regulations.  The Company does not recognize defaults prior to the start of the Event, suspended Events, protests, or overturned decisions, etc. for wagering purposes.

  6. Minimum play requirements for betting purposes are set forth below.  Event results are official after:
    Football (Professional and College) – 55 minutes of play
    Football First Half and Halftime (Professional and College) – 25 minutes of play
    Basketball (Professional) – 43 minutes of play
    Basketball First Half and Halftime (Professional) – 20 minutes of play
    Basketball (College) – 35 minutes of play
    Basketball First Half and Halftime (College) – 15 minutes of play
    Hockey (Professional, College, Amateur) – 55 minutes of play
    Boxing (Professional and Amateur) – When bell (buzzer, etc.) is sounded signifying the start of the opening round the bout is considered official for betting purposes, regardless of the scheduled length.  For boxing Go/Don’t Go, KO, Decision and Draw propositions see rule #11 of these House Rules.
    Baseball (major league, minor league, college, amateur) – In all nine-inning scheduled games, winners and losers are official after nine innings of play, unless the home team is leading after eight and one-half innings.  Called games must go a minimum of five innings or four and one-half innings if the home team is ahead (also applies to seven-inning scheduled games).  If a game  goes past five innings and is subsequently called, the winner is determined by the score after the last full inning of play; except in a case in which the home team scores to tie or take the lead in the bottom half of the inning in which the game is called, the runs do count.  For baseball totals, run lines, and propositions see rule #14 of these House Rules.

    Note:  All other Events not listed above that involve a scheduled length of play or time limit must play to their conclusion or have five minutes or less of scheduled playing time remaining when the contest concludes to be considered official for wagering purposes.  If an Event is declared not official for wagering purposes wagers will be refunded. 

    For all Events not listed above, in the event the predetermined length of play, time limit, distance, etc. is not reached, but the Event is called final by Event officials with a winner declared, it is also considered official for wagering purposes.
  7. When wagering on totals (over/under) on Events involving a scheduled time limit, all Event wagering rules applicable to minimum length of play requirements shall also apply to total wagers, i.e., Event must play to its conclusion or have five minutes or less of scheduled playing time remaining for total wagers to be considered “Action”.

  8. On half-time wagers, scoring during the second half shall determine winners and losers.  Overtime periods are included as part of the second half.  On first-half, quarter, period, set, inning etc. wagers, only scoring during that designated portion of play shall determine winners and losers.

  9. If on the day of the Event conclusion, no winner(s) is/are determined, the minimum play requirements are not met (see Rule 7 of these Sports Wagering Rules) or “No Contest” is declared, all wagers on that Event will be considered “No Action”.  “No Action” wagers will be refunded.

    Boxing

  10. In boxing Go/Don’t Go (over/under) proposition wagers, a full round is defined as one in which the bell (buzzer, etc.) has sounded, signifying the conclusion of such round.  If a fighter is counted out or the bout officially stopped prior to the bell, that round is not considered a full round for wagering purposes.  If a half round (one minute and thirty seconds of a round), or other specified time is listed, the official time of the bout’s conclusion, as determined by ring officials, will determine proposition winners and losers.

    (A) On boxing KO proposition wagers, “KO” includes knockout, technical knockout, disqualification, or any other stoppage.

    (B) On boxing Decision proposition wagers, “Decision” means fight must go to the judges’ scorecard(s) to determine a winner, including a technical decision.

    (C) On boxing Draw proposition wagers, “Draw” means the fight must go to the judges’ scorecard(s) and declared a draw, including a technical draw, regardless of number of rounds completed.

  11. If the fight ends exactly at a half a round, it will be graded as an over.

  12. In round distance wagering, if a fighter fails to answer the bell for the start of any round, the fight officially ended in the last round fought.  In total wagering, if a fighter does not answer the bell to start a round where the fight has gone the exact distance listed on the total, the UNDER is the winner.

    Fight Distance Example:

    Fighter A/Fighter B total rounds are listed as 6 rounds.

    Fighter A fails to answer the bell to start the 7th round.

    The fight officially ends in the 6th round.

    The proposition would have UNDER as the winner.

    Baseball 

  13. When wagering on baseball totals (over/under), the game must go at least the regulation nine innings (eight and one-half if the home team is ahead) for a scheduled nine-inning game or seven- innings (six and one-half if the home team is ahead) for a scheduled seven-inning game.  Thereafter, if a game is called or suspended the score will be determined after the last full inning; unless the home team scores to tie or take the lead in the bottom half of the subsequent inning, in which case the score is determined at the time the game is called.  Listed or specified pitchers must start in over/under wagers or there is “No Action”.  “No Action” wagers will be refunded.

    Note: Rules for baseball proposition bets and run line bets are the same as those for baseball totals.

  14. Baseball wagers are accepted in the following manner:

    (A)“Both Specified Pitchers” – A wager that specifies both starting pitchers.  Any variation constitutes “No Action”.  “No Action” wagers will be refunded.

    Note: Each teams’ starting pitcher is defined for wagering purposes as the pitcher that throws the initial pitch. 

  15. When wagering on totals (over/under), overtime periods, extra innings, etc., are counted in the final score. 

    Hockey

  16. In the event of a shootout, for wagering purposes, the winner is awarded one goal, which is considered in the determination of the winner and loser, and counted toward the game total.

    Golf 

  17. Most holes played wins player match-up propositions.  If number of holes played is equal, low score wins match-up.

  18. If golfers listed in a match-up proposition are involved in a three-way (or more) playoff, either player involved must win the playoff to win that match-up or wagers are deemed “No Action”.;

  19. All future wagers on golf are “Action” regardless if player begins play. 

    Tennis

  20. All future wagers on tennis are “Action” regardless if player begins play.

    Auto Racing

  21. Wagers are accepted on drivers only, not team or car.

    (A) For driver match-up propositions, one driver is picked to finish in front of the other driver.  Drivers need not win or finish the race.

    (B) For over/under, cautions, lap leader or lead change propositions, all scheduled laps must be run or wagers will be deemed “No Action”. 

  22. Once a race has started, match-ups and proposition wagers are “Action” regardless of when race runs to conclusion.

  23. All future wagers on Auto Racing are “Action” regardless if driver starts or qualifies.

  24. Results for auto racing will be considered official for wagering purposes within two hours after conclusion of the Event.  At that time, applicable auto series recognized results and statistics will be used to determine all winners and losers.  Any subsequent changes will not be recognized.

    Soccer

  25. For soccer three-way wagering propositions, each is a separate wagering and must win, lose or tie.

  26. For Events such as international football/soccer competition or challenge, a two option only line may be quoted.  This is a wager on a team to advance, whether they win in 90 minutes, in an extra period, or in a penalty shootout.  There is no possibility of a tie. 

  27. Soccer games do not have to go full regulation time (90 minutes).  Event results are official for wagering purposes after 40 minutes of the second half has been completed or declared official in an extra period or a penalty shootout.

    UFC/MMA Fights

  28. Fights must take place within one week of the listed date of the fight or the Event will be graded "No Action".  Venue changes within the same country will not affect the status of pending wagers on the Event.  Venue changes to a different country will result in a grade of "No Action" on all pending wagers for the Event.

  29. If a fight weight class for an Event is changed for any reason, this will have no effect on any pending wager status. No wager will be voided based on a weight class change for an Event.

  30. If the number of scheduled rounds in a fight or Event is changed or incorrectly posted, only the money line to win the fight will have “Action”. Any other wagers on the Event, including fight totals, fight propositions, exact round of ending, fighter to win inside distance, win by decision, and goes distance propositions will be “No Action”.

  31. A total listed on a fight represents the total number of completed rounds. The halfway point of a round is at exactly one minute and thirty seconds into a three minute round. Thus, 4½ rounds would be one minute and thirty seconds of the 5th round. The halfway point of a two minute round is at the one minute mark. The halfway point of a five minute round is at the two minutes and thirty seconds mark.

  32. Unless otherwise stated, the ring announcer will announce the elapsed time of any uncompleted round. “At X:XX of round X” or “X:XX into the Xth round” refers to time completed in the round, not time remaining in the round.

  33. If the fight ends exactly at a half a round, it will be graded as an over.

  34. Event results will be graded/re-graded based on the official result at ringside.  An Event result may be revised or altered after initial presentation by the ring announcer.  Event results are not official for wagering purposes until verified by officials at the Event venue.  The overturning of a fight decision by an official or unofficial sanctioning body, based on appeal, suspension, lawsuit, drug testing result, or any other fighter sanction, will not be recognized for wagering purposes.

  35. A wager on a fighter "Inside Distance" wins if the selected fighter wins by KO, TKO, DQ, submission, or technical decision.

  36. A wager on a fighter to win by "KO/TKO" wins only if the fighter wins by KO, TKO, DQ, or corner stoppage. A win by submission is not considered a KO/TKO in MMA.

  37. A wager on a fighter to "win by any decision" wins if the selected fighter wins by technical decision or a decision where the fight goes the “complete distance”, meaning the fight goes the full number of scheduled rounds.

  38. A wager on a fighter to "win by X round decision" wins only if the selected fighter wins by decision where the fight goes the “complete distance”.

  39. When a "draw" occurs, wagers on both fighters "to win" are refunded.  Other proposition wagers are graded according to their specific wording.

  40. An "If Wins Only" wager loses when a fight ends in a draw.

  41. Wagers with the following annotation "(Scorecards = No Action)", will be refunded if the fight goes to scorecards for any reason. For this specific case, wagers will have “Action” only if the fight is decided by KO, TKO, DQ, or submission.

  42. Any fight that is deemed "no contest" or "no decision" will have all wagers refunded.

  43. A wager on a fighter winning in a specific round is a loser if the fight goes the “complete distance”.

  44. A fighter wins by "Unanimous Decision" when all three judges score that fighter as the winner.

  45. A fighter wins by "Split-Decision" when two judges score that fighter as the winner and one judge scores the other fighter as the winner.

  46. A fighter wins by "Majority Decision" when two judges score that fighter as the winner and one judge scores the fight a draw.

  47. A fight is a "Unanimous Draw" when all three judges score the fight as a draw. In such event, all wagers will be refunded.

  48. A fight is a "Split-Decision Draw" when one judge scores the fight a draw, one judge scores, the fight for one fighter, and one judge scores the fight for the other fighter. In such event, all wagers will be refunded.

  49. A fight is a "Majority Draw" when two judges score the fight a draw and one judge scores the fight for either of the two fighters.  In such event, all wagers will be refunded.

  50. A fight is a "Technical Draw" when a fight ends before an allotted number of rounds (between four to six rounds, depending on sanctioning body rules) usually because of an accidental head-butt.  In such event, all wagers will be refunded.

  51. If the phrase "Fight goes 1:30 round X", and the fight ends at exactly that second of that round, then "Fight goes" will be graded the winner.

  52. In round distance wagering, if a fighter fails to answer the bell for the start of any round, the fight officially ended in the last round fought.  In total wagering, if a fighter does not answer the bell to start a round where the fight has gone the exact distance listed on the total, the UNDER is the winner.

    Fight Distance Example:

    Fighter A/Fighter B total rounds are listed as 6 rounds.

    Fighter A fails to answer the bell to start the 7th round.

    The fight officially ends in the 6th round.

    The proposition would have UNDER as the winner.

  53. A round is not complete until a fighter starts the following round.
