General betting rules
Three way handicap – if this betting event outcome is selected, goals (points, etc.) are added to the final result (or deducted in case of negative advantage) of the chosen team or participant. When the result including the handicap is in favor of chosen team or participant, the bet is considered to be won. If the result is in favor of opposition, the bet is considered to be lost. In cases where the result including the chosen handicap is a draw, the handicap draw outcome is considered the winner and other outcomes the loser.
In the case of multiple sides or outcomes declared as winners of one event, the player's winnings are calculated by dividing the odds in the betslip from the number of winning sides or outcomes. The recounted odds cannot be lower than 1.
Asian Handicap is a double Handicap offer when the amount of a bet is divided into two equal parts. For example, if Asian Handicap (-1,-1.5) is offered and a bet of €100 is placed on the outcome, it is calculated that €50 is bet on Handicap (-1) and €50 on Handicap (-1.5). Because Asian Handicap is a double offer, the final winning odds can be lower than 1, and the amount of the winnings can be smaller than the original bet amount. For example, a bet of €100 is placed on an Arsenal – Chelsea game with an Asian Handicap (-1,-1.5) on Arsenal with the odds being 1,8, and it ended in 2:1. In that case, the €50 bet on Arsenal‘s Handicap (-1) is equated to 1, and the €50 bet on Arsenal‘s Handicap (-1.5) is lost. A €50 win is paid out.
Asian Total is a double Total offer when the amount of a bet is divided into two equal parts. For example, if there is an Asian Total (2;2.5) offered and a bet of €100 is placed on the outcome, it is calculated that a €50 bet is placed on Total (2) and a €50 bet is placed on Total (2.5). Because Asian Total is a double offer, the final winning odds can be lower than 1, and the amount of the winnings can be smaller than the original bet. For example, a bet of €100 is placed on an Arsenal – Chelsea game with an Asian Total Over (2;2.5) with the odds of 1,9 and the game has ended in 2:0. In that case, the €50 bet on the game‘s Total Over (2) is equated to 1 and the €50 bet on the game‘s Total Over (2.5) is lost. A €50 win is paid out.
When the circumstances of the game on which you have placed your bets change, you will be able to withdraw your money before the outcome is summarized – all you need to do is select the Cash Out feature in your betting history. The potential amount of the Cash Out will depend on the results of the team on which you have placed your bet and it can be either bigger or smaller than your original bet, giving you a chance to either increase your winnings or reduce the potential losses.
A Cash Out calculation example:
You have placed a €10 bet on your chosen team’s victory with the odds of 3, so your potential winnings would be €30. If during the game the odds become equal, you can reduce your risk by using the Cash Out feature and withdrawing more that you have bet. For example – if the opposite party’s odds rise to 2, by using the Cash Out feature you will increase your original bet amount to €15.
Football - bets on football matches are accepted for the regular time (90 minutes and injury time added), unless otherwise stated.
