In the event that any representation made by you proving to be false, your stake shall be forfeited and Hollywood shall not be obliged to pay any winnings which might otherwise have been payable in respect of the bet.

 

If Hollywood, in its sole discretion,believes or has reason to believe that the bettor is using a non-de-plume(i.e.betting under an assumed name),with or without the other person's permission, then the customer agrees that he/she shall forfeit all stakes in respect of such bets and Hollywood shall not be obliged to pay any winnings which might otherwise have been payable in respect of the bets.In all instances the onus to prove the validity of the bet shall rest with the customer.

2.7          In-Running Betting

“Betting In-Running” or “Live In-Running betting” refers to all bets that take place while an event is in progress, i.e. betting that occurs after the official start but before the official end of the event.  The odds in respect thereof shall be continuously updated during the event to reflect the current status of the game.  In-running betting is only available on certain sports.

 

For all bets placed in-running, the rules before the start will apply except where otherwise offered by a difference in selections, prices or markets offered.

 

Hollywood reserves the right to suspend (and re-open) in-running betting during the event concerned.   No such bets will be accepted when the betting is suspended.

 

Internet and Mobile - In-running betting odds may be subject to a time delay (which may appear as a browser delay) prior to acceptance.  If a price of a bet changes after it is requested but before the bet is accepted, the bet will be re-offered at the new price.  A further time delay will apply if a new price is subsequently requested.  If the bet is suspended after the price is requested, but prior to acceptance of the bet, the transaction will be declined if you attempt to accept the bet.

Telephone Betting - It is your responsibility to ensure that the details of all bets are correct when called to and confirmed by the operator.  For a bet to be accepted Hollywood must issue a ticket in respect of each bet.  A bet is not accepted on call back confirmation of the content of the bet by the operator but only on the issue of a ticket.  Once a ticket has been issued, bets may not be cancelled or changed by you under any circumstance.   

 

Where a blatant or palpable error is made in transmission on any event on which there is live betting, bets will be settled at the correct price at the time at which the bets was placed.

 

Where we have reason to believe that a bet was placed after the outcome of an event is known, we reserve the right to void the bet. Where any in-running bet is not completed all bets on that event shall be void except bets where the contingency has already been determined.

 

Hollywood reserves the right to amend the odds on any bet if that bet was placed during the period when betting should have been suspended for any reason.

2.8          Dead Heat

In the event of a dead heat (tie), where odds were not offered by Hollywood on such an outcome, bets will be paid at the face value of the ticket divided by the number of competitors tying for that placing.  Place ties will only be paid on an event for which place betting was available and the winnings thereon will be calculated by multiplying the face value of the ticket by the remaining number of places available and divided by the number of competitors tying for those available number of placing’s. 

In the event of a dead heat where odds were offered by Hollywood on such an outcome, then all win or place bets will be losers and the draw option will be paid on the winner.

Save in respect of the aforegoing the dead heat rule in 3 below shall mutatis mutandis apply in respect of all sports / events and bets thereon.

2.9          Suspension of Markets

Hollywood reserves the right to suspend a market at any time.  When a market is suspended any bets placed during that suspension will be rejected and any bet accepted will be void.

2.10        Official Starting Time

The official starting time for any event is that stated by the controlling body for the relevant event.

2.11        Results

The result of any event will be accepted and posted by Hollywood in accordance with the first official result of that particular event, irrespective of any subsequent revocation of that result due to disqualification or otherwise.

2.12        Special events

All special events on which bets are offered by Hollywood shall be deemed to be sporting events even if they fall outside the scope of sport.  All the Terms and Conditions relating to sport as well as the specific  discipline rules  in respect thereof shall apply to special event bets.

2.13        Sports Betting

In all betting relating to sports other than horse racing, the terms and conditions relating to betting on horses shall mutatis mutandis apply to all circumstances not covered by the specific sports discipline rules.

2.14        Maximum Winning

The maximum amount that any single customer (directly or indirectly) may win from any bet or bets placed with Hollywood on any one day, irrespective of the stakes in respect thereof or the terms of that bet, is set out below but subject always to a maximum of R500 000.00 per customer per day save in respect of a bet of 6 or more legs on a soccer multiple or a five-timer in Powa Numbas (where 4 balls are correctly selected from machine 1 together with the Powa Number) only in which event the maximum payout limit shall be R1 500 000.00 per customer per day.

Where bets have been placed on different days in respect of an event or events held on the same day, the maximum amount that one customer may win on one day’s trading is determined by the day that the final event/market is resolved, and not on the individual day on which each bet was placed and accordingly limited to a maximum amount of R500 000.00 per customer per day per event, save in respect of a bet of 6 or more legs on a soccer multiple or a five-timer in powa numbas as aforesaid.

 

If a number of bets containing the same selections are placed by more than one customer, and Hollywood has reason to believe that these bets originated from or were placed on behalf of the same customer, syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion, Hollywood reserves the right to limit the total winnings payable in respect thereof to the maximum amount that a single customer may win on one day’s trading, being R500 000.00, save in respect of a bet of 6 or more legs on a soccer multiple or a five-timer in powa numbas as aforesaid.  Hollywood, in its sole discretion, shall determine if a bet has been placed by a nominee or on behalf of a single customer and Hollywood’s decision in that regard shall be final and binding.

 

Notwithstanding the aforesaid daily limit, where the selection of multiple bets is made from the different categories listed in the maximum winnings table below, the lowest daily maximum winnings recorded in the table below will apply. Where a soccer multiple has 6 or more legs but also includes an event from another sport or horse racing, such multiple shall fall within the maximum winning category of that sport or horse racing but the maximum winnings shall not exceed R500 000.00. The same shall apply in respect of the five-timer in powa numbas.

 

Any increases to the prescribed winning limits will be considered on application by you on an individual bet basis at the time each bet is placed, and you should contact Hollywood’s Call Centre (08600-HOLLY or 08600 – 46559) or the Manager of the outlet concerned, for assistance.

 

Any bet placed by a customer in excess of the payout limit will be accepted and paid out subject to the payout limits prescribed, whether they are winning or losing bets.

 

Payout Limits (Tote, Exotic, SP, All On and Yankee type bets)

Payout limits apply to Win, Place, Swinger, Exacta, Trifecta, Quartet, Double, Place Accumulator, Jackpot, Pick 3, Bipot, Pick 6, Soccer Special,  Starting Price, All-to-Come and Yankee type bets. Payouts will be limited to the lesser of R500 000 ticket limit or 500 000/1 odds limit except for the Pick 6 which shall be limited to the lesser of R1 000 000 ticket limit or 1 000 000/1 odds

Examples:

·         If Hollywood lays a Jackpot that pays R630 000 to a R1 unit and a customer (syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion) catches it once (100%), the R500 000 ticket limit will apply – dividend paid = R500 000.

·         If Hollywood lays a customer (syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion) tickets totaling 20% of a Pick 6 that pays R1 400 000 to a R1 unit, the R1 000 000/1 odds limit will apply.  Payout will be 20% of R1 000 000 – dividend paid = R200 000.

Open Bet Limit (local and international where the net pools are below R500 000)

An open bet is a bet offered by Hollywood on one or more events in which no fixed odds are agreed at the time the bet is placed and the winnings and therefore the payout is determined after the outcome of the event on which such bet was struck becomes known, with reference to dividends generated by a totalisator.

If a number of bets containing the same selections are placed by more than one customer, and Hollywood has reason to believe that these bets originated from or were placed on behalf of the same customer, syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion, Hollywood reserves the right to limit the total winnings payable in respect thereof to the Pool Limit.

Winning limits shall also apply to Win, Place, Swinger, Exacta, Trifecta, Quartet, Double, Place Accumulator, Jackpot, Pick 3, Bipot, Pick 6, Rugby Special and Soccer Special.  The maximum winnings in respect thereof will be limited to THE TOTAL NET POOL LIMIT of the local SAFTOTE pool.

By way of example, if the total available pool on an Exacta is R2500, then this is maximum payout that may be distributed to a customer (syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion)who has selected the winning combination/s regardless of the stakes or the number of tickets. If Hollywood laid 1000 winning Exactas to a customer (syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion) and the Saftote dividend was R 3.50, Hollywood would limit the payout to pay the Pool Limit of R2500.

The open bet payouts will be limited by the number of dividends being paid by the totalisator.  The totalisator pools will be divided by the number of open bet dividends paying for that race.  Therefore if a race is paying 4 places, the totalisator place pool will be divided by 4 and that value shall be applied to each placing. 

By way of an example, if the net swinger pool is R3 000 and there are 3 swingers to be paid, the net pool for each swinger will be R1000 (R3000/3 swingers) and this shall be the open bet limit applied.  Therefore if swingers are caught by a customer (syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion) with Hollywood, and the total payout is R1 300, this payout will be limited to R1000.  The same applies to all open bets.

Open Win and Open Place Limits

Not withstanding the pool size, Hollywood reserves its right to limit the odds payable on open wins and open places to a maximum of 50% over the fixed odds starting price of the horse (being the last price laid by Hollywood). The payout limit will be the lesser of the Saftote pool size and the value of the stake applied at the odds limit.

By way of example, if a horse has a starting price of 2/1 and pays R5 for a win (odds of 4/1) on the totalisator (where the pool size was R15000) and a customer has R1000 wins, then the payout will be limited to odds of 3/1. Should a customer (syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion) have had R5000 wins on the horse then the maximum win amount will be the pool size

Carryovers

Should there be no winning tickets on any pool on the Totalisator (ie a full carryover) but winning tickets at Hollywood, Hollywood will pay a dividend determined by dividing the Totalisator pool by the number of Hollywood winners.  Hollywood’s maximum liability to any customer (syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion) shall be limited to the Pool. These dividends and pay-outs will be subject to ticket limits.

Where a partial carryover is declared by the Totalisator on an open bet, Hollywood shall pay the dividend as declared.  However, the liability shall be limited to the value of the Pool paid out and NOT the value of the total pool.

By way of example, if a commingled Trifecta pool is R10 000 on an English event and a dividend of R700 is declared to 6 winners locally (total payout R4200) and a carryover of R5800 is declared, then Hollywood’s maximum liability to any customer (syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion) shall be limited to the value of the pay-out, being R4200.

2.15        Related Bets

No related bets, (where the outcome of one part of the bet contributes or determines another part of the bet), will be accepted.  If a related bet is accepted, the stake of the single bet will be divided and applied and paid equally over the respective events in the bet.  Hollywood, in its sole discretion, shall determine if a bet is a related bet, and Hollywood’s decision in that regard shall be final and binding.

 

Example: Manchester United to win in 90 minutes (price even money 1/1) AND Manchester United to win with exact score of 2-0 (price 7/1) will erroneously return a multiple price of 15/1.  A bet of 1500/100 will be corrected to two bets, namely R50 on Manchester United  to win in 90 minutes (price 1/1 bet would be 50/50) and a bet of R50 for Manchester United to win with exact score 2-0 (350/50).

2.16        Multiple Bets

Multiple bets will be subject to the win limit as per the maximum winnings table above per customer.  If any multiple bets are accepted by Hollywood over this limit, the said bets will be adjusted to the prescribed limit at the same odds, whether they are winning bets or losing bets and winnings reduced and paid out accordingly.

 

If any selection in a multiple bet becomes or is deemed void the money staked on that part of the bet which is void shall be placed on the remaining selections which comprise the multiple bet and the remaining selections of the bet shall stand.   For example, if one match in a quadruple bet becomes void, the bet becomes a treble.  If one bet of a multiple bet remains, that bet will stand as a single bet.

 

No multiple bet will be accepted where two legs of the multiple bet can be placed on and relate to the same individual event.  For example, where one leg of a double is for Montoya to qualify in pole position for the Monaco Grand Prix and the second leg is for him to win the Monaco Grand Prix.  The two bets are connected in that they relate to the same race.  Should any bets be erroneously accepted by Hollywood, the stakes will be equally divided between the selections which are connected.

 

Similarly, two legs of a multiple bet cannot be placed from the same individual event.  For example, Manchester United is playing Liverpool and you select Liverpool to win as your first leg, you cannot now add an additional selection from within the same game to form another leg of your multiple bet.

2.17        Deposits

Deposits from account holders can only be made into the bank accounts listed below and will be held by Hollywood Sportsbook Gauteng (Pty) Ltd and credited to the customer’s online or mobile betting account once the funds have been cleared by Hollywood Sportsbook Gauteng (Pty) Ltd’s bankers and proof of the deposit by the customer concerned has been received by Hollywood.  If a deposit is not cleared by Hollywood’s bankers before the event that has been bet on using that deposit commences, that bet may be cancelled.  Cheque deposits will be subject to a 14 day clearance period.

 

All deposits will be held by Hollywood Sportsbook Gauteng (Pty) Ltd, will not bear interest and may be withdrawn by a customer at any time.

 

Hollywood shall be entitled to withhold payment of a deposit to a customer who seeks to withdraw funds held on deposit if the customer owes money to any other company or entity in the Hollywood Group for any reason and Hollywood shall be entitled to appropriate the deposit in settlement or reduction of that debt.

 

Customers may only use their own credit / debit card to transact with Hollywood.  Any deposits made using someone else’s credit / debit card will be refunded to the cardholder and all bets made with funds from that card will be cancelled.

Customers that continue to operate multiple Hollywood accounts after 1st April 2014 will have their accounts 'linked' and managed accordingly. This may affect the extent to which bets can be placed on the Hollywood Sportsbook by such customers.

 

Should Hollywood believe, using its absolute and sole discretion that you have:

 

a. registered and/or used more than once account. and/or b. acted in collusion with one or more other individuals through a number of different Hollywood accounts to back the same combination of selections (regardless of whether or not such bets are struck separately, at a range of different prices or on different days), In an attempt to exceed the maximum pay-out for an individual account holder across linked accounts, it reserves the right to withhold any winnings arising from such behaviour.

Horse Racing and Sports Betting Terms and Conditions

3.1          Horse Racing

Ante-Post Betting

 

An ante-post bet is a bet on a medium to long term feature race or event.

In the case of weather or outside influences that cause an event to be postponed or rescheduled to another day, then all ante-post bets shall stand.  Ante-post bets may include runners that do not ultimately participate in the race or event and bets wagered on such will be considered losers.  These races/events may be referred to as “all-in” events.  No deduction shall be taken on scratching from ante-post all-in races or events.

 

An ante-post bet will be void where the race on which the ante-post bet has been placed is officially abandoned, the conditions of the race altered or if the venue of the race has been changed.  In these circumstances any multiple bet, which includes this selection, will be paid out on the remaining selections.

               

Feature Race Multiples

The horse racing year provides occasions where the same selection can be backed to win in two different events.  In these events the multiple bet will be reduced by one-third of the full accumulated odds.

Example:

Pocket Power to win the Queen’s Plate – 1/1

Pocket Power to win the J&B Met – 15/10

Ante-post Double price – 4/1 x 66% = 27/10

 

Withdrawals/Scratchings

In all horse races, except horse races on which ante-post bets have been placed, if a horse is withdrawn without coming under starters orders, the horse will be treated as a non-runner in which event a deduction may be made, at the time Hollywood processes the scratching, from the winnings of bets struck at a fixed price prior to the scratching and, if there is insufficient time to form a new market/starting price, the starting price will be subject to the same deduction.  Each deduction will be determined in accordance with the following deduction table.

Betting with a Run (any bet other than an ante-post bet)

Where a single bet is made “with a run” and the selected horse is scratched, the bet shall be void.

 

All bets struck “with a run” on the remaining horses in a race where one or more horses have been scratched shall be subject to the deductions detailed in the table above.

 

Where a deduction applies to remaining runners in the event of a multiple event bet “with a run”, the relevant deduction in the table above shall be applied to the runner of the event where the scratching occurred, and the entire bet recalculated in respect of the event from which the horse was scratched.

 

Any bets “with a run” struck after the official announcement of the withdrawal of one or more horses shall not be subject to any deduction, unless there is a further withdrawal or withdrawals.

 

Where a race is abandoned, all bets “with a run” on the race concerned shall be void.

 

In starting price multiple bets “with a run”, winnings on winning bets shall be calculated and paid at the Hollywood starting price.

 

Hollywood Starting Price

The starting price of a horse shall be the last fixed odds laid or displayed by Hollywood on that horse, prior to the start of the race.  In the event of a late withdrawal, where no new betting is displayed before the start of the race, then the starting price shall be the last price displayed, subject to a deduction.

Jockey Championship

 

The winner is the jockey or jockeys who have numerically ridden the most winners in a championship period.

The winner of the British Flat Jockeys Championship is the jockey who rides the most winners on the flat and all-weather tracks during the championship period.  Dead-heat rules apply

 

Betting for Absolute Second

 

In certain instances betting may be offered, on the field, to run second.  Fixed odds to run absolute second will be displayed against all participants in the event.  A pay-out will be made on all bets struck on the horse that finished in second place.  Dead-heat rules will apply.

 

Match Races

 

The horse (or jockey) that attains the highest finishing position in the official result will be the winner of the match race.  Both horses must come under starter’s orders or bets will be void.  Hollywood reserves the right to change the horse in a match race without notice and reserves the right to suspend betting at any time.

 

In hurdle/jump races, all runners that come under starter’s orders will be declared as runners in the Match Bet market.  Should only one runner finish the race, this runner shall be declared the winner.  In the event that both horses do not complete the race, the bet will be void.

 

Triple Headers

 

The horse that attains the highest finishing position in the official result will be the winner of the triple header race.  All horses must come under starter’s orders, failing which should two horses be scratched then all bets will be void.  Should one horse be withdrawn without coming under starter’s orders, the horse will be treated as a non-runner in which event a deduction may be made from the winnings of bets struck at a fixed price and, if there is insufficient time to form a new market/starting price, the starting price will be subject to the same deduction.  Deductions will NOT be based on the standard bookmaker tables but will be based on a calculation that reduces the odds of the remaining two runners by the percentage chance of the horse that has been scratched.

 

In hurdle/jump races, all runners that come under starter’s orders will be declared as runners in the triple header race.  Should only one runner finish the race, this runner shall be declared the winner.  In the event that all three horses do not complete the race, the bet will be void.

 

Place Betting

Fixed Odds Places

The following shall apply to place betting at fixed odds:

·         In races of 3 runners or less no place bets shall be accepted.  All place bets placed will be void.

·         In the event of a dead heat in the placing’s, normal dead heat rules will apply.

·         All fixed odds place bets are subject to the rules relating to the scratching’s and the deductionstable above.  In the event that scratching’s result in 3 runners or less, all place bets will be refunded.

·         If scratching’s reduce the size of the field, and deductions are declared, bets will stand as taken subject to those deductions.  If no deduction is declared the odds and places will be determined as per the table below.

Betting on International Racing

 

Betting is avaible on race meetings (televised or non-televised in South Africa) in Australia,Europe, Hong Kong, India, Kenya, Mauritius, New Zealand, Singapore, North and South America and Zimbabwe. For these meetings the following conditions shall apply An open bet is a bet offered by Hollywood on one or more events in which no fixed odds are agreed at the time the bet is placed and the winnings and therefore the payout is determined after the outcome of the event on which such bet was struck becomes known, with reference to dividends generated by the international totalisator.

 

All bets shall be to a R1 unit.Where dividends are declared to a different unit, then the dividend shall be adjusted to pay to a R1 unit.

 

Bet Types

 

Win bets are won when the runner you picked finishes first. Place bets are won when the runner picked finishes in one of the up to four top places. The number of places for which the bet is paid goes by the Totalisator. Usually, there are three places being paid. However, depending on the country and number of runners, even only two or up to four places might be paid. All Place bets are lost past the fourth place, even if the Totalisator pays further places. (In the USA this is called a show). Exacta bets are won when the two runners picked finish first and second in the exact order specified. Should one of the picked runners become a non-runner, the stakes shall be refunded. Should less than two runners cross the finishing line for a given race, all exacta bets shall be lost unless the Totalisator is providing Exacta odds. Trifecta bets are won when the three runners picked finish first, second, and third in the exact order specified. Should one of the picked runners become a non-runner, the stakes shall be refunded. Should less than three runners cross the finishing line for a given race, the according Totalisator rules shall apply for payout. Quartet bets are won when the four runners picked finish first, second, third, and fourth in the exact order specified. Should one of the picked runners become a non-runner, the stakes shall be refunded. Should less than four runners cross the finishing line for a given race, the according Totalisator rules shall apply for payout. Swinger bets are won when the two runners picked finish in one of the top three places regardless of their order of arrival. Should one of the picked runners become a non-runner, the stakes shall be refunded. Should less than three horses cross the finishing line for a given race, all Swinger bets shall be lost unless the Totalisator is providing Swinger odds. Place Accumulator bets are won when the horses picked finish in the top three places in each of the seven races that comprise the place accumulator. Pick 6 bets are won when the horses picked win each of the six races that comprise the pick 6.

 

Bets on coupled runners are bets made on a certain stable as a whole. Should two or more runners of one stable (eg. same trainer/owner) start in a given race, the odds provided by the Totalisator shall refer to all runners from such stable combined. In France and Italy, runners are coupled exclusively for win bets. Should one of the coupled runners become a non-runner, for races in these countries the stakes on this runner shall be refunded. In American horse racing, coupled runners regulations are also applied to other betting types. Should one of the coupled runners become a non-runner, for races in the USA the stakes shall be distributed over the remaining coupled runners of the same stable. The stakes shall be refunded only if all horses from the stable on which you have bet become non-runners. As clarification, open bets will not be offered on more than one of the coupled horses in the USA i.e. where horses 1 and 1A are carded to run, then betting will only be available on horse 1 for all bet types. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph 2.14 above, maximum winning limits will apply to international racing: Winning limits shall apply to all bet types as per the table below. The maximum winnings in respect of any single customer, syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion, will be limited to a R100 000 race limit.

 

Winning limits shall apply to all bet types as per the table below. The maximum winnings in respect of any single customer, syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion, will be limited to a R100 000 race limit. Totalisator rules, pools and dividends on international racing shall be taken from the totalisator in the country of origin.

If a number of bets containing the same selections are placed by more than one customer, and Hollywood has reason to believe that these bets originated from or were placed on behalf of the same customer, syndicate of customers or any group of people acting in conjunction with each other as may be determined by Hollywood in its sole discretion, Hollywood reserves the right to limit the total winnings payable in respect thereof to the Limit as set above.

Yankee Bets

All Yankee bets and bets of a similar nature (including Canadian) will be laid at Starting Price.

A Yankee is a wager on four selections (in four separate events) and consisting of 11 separate bets: 6 doubles, 4 trebles and a fourfold accumulator.  A minimum of two selections must win to gain a return.

A Canadian is a wager on five selections (in five separate events) and consisting of 26 separate bets: 10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 fourfolds and a fivefold, all to come (fivefold multiple).  A minimum of two selections must win to gain a return.

 

Time and Venue of Race

No bet may be accepted in respect of a horse race once that race has officially started.  All bets placed on a race after the actual start will be void.

 

Where the venue of a race is changed from that originally advertised, the race shall be deemed to have been abandoned and such bets shall be treated as bets on a postponed race.

 

Postponed Races

Where a race advertised to be run on a certain date is postponed to any future date, if the race is run more than 48 hours after the originally advertised date and time all bets on that postponed race shall be void, save in respect of ante-post bets.

 

Races Re-Run

In the event of any race being ordered to be re-run:

·         Starting price bets shall be calculated and paid at the current price at the time the race is finally run;

·         “With a run” bets on any horse which started on the first occasion and which was subsequently scratched, shall be void and the deductions in terms of the table above shall apply; and

·         Ante-post bets shall stand.

3.2          Soccer

All soccer bets will be settled on the score at fulltime (90 minutes and stoppage time added by the referee, if any).  Extra time, golden goal and penalty shootouts will be excluded.  Where a bet is struck to “lift the cup” or “to progress” there shall be no betting on a draw as extra time or penalties may be required to decide the outcome.

The only exception to this rule is in relation to friendly matches (which may be scheduled for less than 90 minutes), where all match markets will be settled based on the actual result when the game finishes (excluding any extra-time), irrespective of whether the full 90 minutes is played.

If a scheduled match does not kick-off and a team is declared a winner by a walkover, by the governing association, then such decision shall not be considered a result for betting purposes and all bets on the match shall be void. 

 

All bets will be accepted until kick off time.  Any bet placed after kick off time shall be void.  That part of a multiple bet on a soccer event placed after kick off time shall be void but all remaining selections which do not include the match in that multiple bet will stand.

 

Should a match start and be abandoned prior to the completion of fulltime and an official result is declared by the governing association of the match or event within 24 hours of abandonment thereof, all relevant bets will be determined on that result notwithstanding any later changes to the result for any reason or any error in the results save that all bets which are dependent on number of goals scored shall be void.

 

If a soccer match is officially called off prior to its scheduled completion and an official match result is not declared by the relevant controlling authority within 24 hours of abandonment, bets not determined at the time the match is called off shall be void.  This exclusion does not apply to bets already determined.

 

Bets placed on postponed matches will stand provided the match is played within 24 hours of the original scheduled kick off time and the venue remains the same, failing which those bets shall be void.

 

In the event that a result of a match is not made available on the internet or other reliable source within 48 hours of the scheduled kick-off, such match shall be made void, provided that an alternate kick-off has not been scheduled within that same 48 hour period.  Should a result subsequently be forthcoming it shall be ignored for the purposes of settling bets.

 

Halftime-Fulltime double result – bets are offered on the double result of the halftime result and the fulltime result.  For example, a selection by the customer showing Arsenal-Arsenal will require Arsenal to be winning at halftime and Arsenal to be winning at fulltime.

 

Bets relating to time will be settled according to the timing on the broadcasters’ clock if the event is televised.  In the case where no clock is available or the event is not televised, then all bets will be settled according to the time published on Xscores.com or, if in dispute, by the controlling authority of that event.

 

Hollywood shall display prices on both teams as well as the draw.  The price of the home team will be displayed first followed by the price on the away team, unless the home team is otherwise clearly indicated.

 

If a team plays a different opponent to that which is advertised, or if the venue of a match is changed to a different venue,  all bets on that match shall be void save that multiple bets which include that match shall stand whilst all other bets on that match shall be void.

 

In the Draw No Bet market if a game ends in a draw, after 90 minutes, then all bets are refunded.

 

The Handicap betting market will be resulted on the actual 90-minute result taking into consideration the handicap  (plus or minus) as displayed.

 

The Matchflow Market will be resulted as one of the seven options applicable at the end of the 90- minute period. This market couples the first team to score(home or away) with the final score, remembering too, that a No Goal option is valid.

 

In First Goal Scorer selections, if the customer’s selected player:

·         comes on after the first goal has been scored; or

·         does not take part at all;
