BetJoe Sports Betting Rules

 

 

The purpose of these Rules is to detail the terms and conditions under which bets are accepted by our Sportsbook. All bets accepted by us will be settled according to these Rules. They include maximum winnings and the events on which bets are accepted. Also covered in these rules are details of how bets will be settled if you make an error when placing bets or an error occurs either with our website or our systems. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are familiar with these rules or the terms of a particular bet.

 

 

BetEast reserves the right to add, delete or change its wagering rules at any time without prior notification. It is the Customers responsibility to be aware of all our rules prior to placing a wager.

 

 

Some events, and markets have different rules and these are listed below in the specific event/market betting rules for each specific event or market/bet type. The following are the general rules of betting applicable to all events and markets/bet types.

 

 

1. General Betting Rules and Regulations

 

 

2. General

 

 

1. All Betting Information supplied by the Company is done so in good faith. However the Company cannot accept liability for any errors or omissions in respect to dates, times, venues, competitors, odds, results, statistics, jersey or other Betting Information despite our every effort to ensure total accuracy. The Company reserves the right to correct any obvious errors and shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that Markets, which are defined as different Bet Types offered on a certain sporting event, are administered with integrity and transparency. BetEast reserves the right to make the final decision regarding these.

 

 

2. If an Event, which is defined as organized sports match or event between two teams or between individuals, begins before the scheduled time then only bets placed before the start of the Event (excluding specified live betting) will be considered valid. If a Market is not closed or suspended at the correct time then the Company reserves the right to void all bets placed after the actual start time (excluding specified live betting). Therefore, dates and kick-off times of matches shown on our website should be treated as for guidance only.

 

 

3. In the event of any inconsistency between the English and the Non-English names used for the events, teams or Market types, on the Website, it is the English version that shall prevail. If a team plays a different opponent to the one stated, that selection will be void at our discretion.

 

 

4. At all times, it is the customer's responsibility to be aware about the match score and all relevant match information and it is advised that the customer verify match status before placing a bet.

 

 

5. The Company reserves the right to amend these Rules at any time for any reason(s). Any such revision will be binding and effective immediately upon posting in the Website.

 

 

6. The customer acknowledges that the current score, time elapsed and other data provided on the site (including ‘Live TV pictures’) whilst coming from a ‘Live’ feed provided by a third party is subject to a time delay and/or may be inaccurate, and that any bet placed based on this data is entirely at the customer’s own risk. The Company provides this data as-is with no warranty as to the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of such data and accepts no responsibility for any loss (direct or indirect) suffered by the Customer as a result of their reliance on it.

 

 

7. Markets shown during live trading refer to the entire match, except where stated (for example Asian Handicaps in Soccer are often traded from current score indicated next to the market name).

 

 

8. Accumulative bets involving different contingencies within the same event are not accepted where the outcome of one affects the other. Where we believe that the Outcome of one Event directly affects the Outcome of another Event in a multiple bet (related contingency), we reserve the right to refund such bets.

 

 

9. Where there is evidence of Price, Race, Match or Event rigging, we reserve the right to make bets void or withhold payment of returns pending the outcome of any subsequent investigation. In addition, if we believe that a deliberate attempt has been made to gain a pecuniary advantage in the bet placement process we reserve the right to make bets void or withhold payment of returns pending the outcome of any investigation.

 

 

10. No claims or disputes will be considered more than 1 week after the bet is finalised or 2 weeks after the Event is completed. In the first instance, all claims/disputes should be raised via Customer Services, who will refer it to the Trading team. In the event the Trading team is unable to resolve the dispute the Head of Sportsbook will have the final decision, and avail the Customer of the outcome by email.

 

 

11. We reserve the right not to offer a price on some teams or positions and these may be listed as N/O (No offers). No price is offered for this selection, and any bet taken on such a selection, or at odds 1.00 would be void.

 

 

3. Abandonments and Postponements

 

 

1. If an Event does not begin on the scheduled start date (or within 36 hours of the scheduled start time) and is not completed within the originally scheduled completion date all bets will be void.

 

 

2. Any Event abandoned before the completion and not continued within 36 hours will be void except for those bets the outcome of which has already been determined at the time of abandonment. The market must be fully determined for bets to stand. For example, ‘First Team To Score’ or ‘Time Of The First Goal’ bets will stand provided a goal has been scored at the time of abandonment, same as any bet on ‘Half time’, ‘Quarter’, ‘Inning’ or any other period quarter which already had been decided.

 

 

3. If an Event has not completed within the originally scheduled completion time and an official result is declared or a result is declared by the particular Event’s relevant governing body, the Company reserves the right to consider the match officially valid. The Company’s decision is final and binding in this regard. Individual sports or Event’s governing bodies are defined by us, and are available on request.

 

 

4. Change of Venue and Events not played as Listed

 

 

1. Where important, home team is always listed first.

 

 

2. Unless otherwise stated, if a match is scheduled to be played on neutral ground but is played on non-neutral ground or vice versa, all bets will still be considered valid. In the event of a change of venue where home team plays away or vice versa, all bets on the match will be considered void. Bets will also be considered void if the home and away team names are wrongly stated in reverse.

 

 

3. Competitions hosted by one (or in some cases more than one) teams/countries/federations are considered played on neutral ground. If host team is listed as a away team all bets accepted stands. For example, in an event Argentina – Germany, played on World Championship which is hosted by Germany all bets accepted on such an event stand.

 

 

4. For all non-team Events, if the scheduled venue is changed after the Market has been opened, then all bets will still be considered valid except where stated within the individual sport rules.

 

 

5. If the players/teams are displayed incorrectly, we reserve the right to void betting. Also, in the event of a change of opponent from the one advertised, all bets for that match are void.

 

 

5. Periods of Time

 

 

1. Any incident during injury or stoppage time that is played, is deemed to have occurred at the end of regular time, e.g. a goal scored in first half injury time of a soccer match is deemed to have been scored on 45 minutes.

 

 

2. In the case of the general implied rules of a sport being violated, we reserve the right to void any market (e.g. unusual period length, counting procedure, format of a match etc.).

 

 

3. In the case of the rules or format of a match differing from our implied information, we reserve the right to void any market.

 

 

6. Results

 

 

1. Where relevant, podium positions will count as the official result, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the results. If there is no podium ceremony, results will be determined in accordance with the official result of the relevant governing body at the time of the Market settlement, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the results. If no official result is available then the result will be determined with reference to the available evidence known at the time of Market settlement & the decision of the Company is final.

 

 

2. Markets are generally settled shortly after the conclusion of an Event. Purely as a customer service, some Markets may be settled before the official result is declared. The Company reserves the right to reverse settlement in the Event of a Market being settled in error and this will be reflected in your balance.

 

 

3. In the Event of uncertainty over any result then the Company reserves the right to suspend settlement of any Market. If the outcome of a market cannot be verified officially, we reserve the right to void them.

 

 

4. The Company will not recognize any amendments or changes to results made 72 hours after the conclusion of the Event, for bets that have already been settled.

 

 

5. Where there is a conflict between the official results and the results posted on the results section of the Company’s Website, the conflict shall be resolved by reference to the Company's video recording of the particular Event to determine the correct result. However, if no such video recording is available, then the correct result shall be determined in accordance with the result of the particular Event’s relevant governing body as published on its official website. If the official website is unable to provide the result or official website's posted result is manifestly wrong, then the Company reserves the right to make decisions/amendments to determine the final result. The Company’s decision is final and binding in this regard, however we will give our justification for the result upon request. This may include video evidence.

 

 

6. In the case of any obviously incorrectly displayed or calculated prices, we reserve the right to void betting. This includes a deviation of more than 100% in the pay-out compared to the market average. Any bet inadvertently accepted after an event has finished will be void.

 

 

7. Unless a specific reference is made in the individual section that covers the sport, settlement of all markets will be based on the official competition rules.

 

 

8. Unless a specific reference is made in the individual section that covers the sport, opponents must start the match for ‘head to head’ match bets to stand.

 

 

9. When no price is quoted for a tie and the official competition rules do not determine a clear winner or the official result is a tie, all stakes on that market will be refunded.

 

 

7. Over Ask or Bet Delay Acceptance

 

 

1. For certain events or bets as may be determined by the Company, a customer may place a bet only using our timed Acceptance feature. Each bet placed using timer acceptance will have its own countdown timer, the duration of which will be at the sole and exclusive determination of the Company. Such situations may include but are not limited to: requested bets over our internal limits that are referred to a Trader before acceptance. Bets placed during an ‘Live Betting’ event will almost certainly be subject to a delay, which will vary by sport & competition. We reserve the right to refuse the whole or part of any bet without offering any explanation.

 

 

2. When using our website, and subsequently the Timer Acceptance feature, the Customer acknowledges that the current score, time elapsed and other data provided on this site (including ‘Live’ TV pictures) while coming from a “live” feed provided by a third party is subject to a time delay and/or may be inaccurate, and that any bet placed based on this data is entirely at the customer’s own risk. The Company provides this data and accepts no responsibility for any loss (direct or indirect) suffered by the customer as a result of his reliance on it.

 

 

8. Maximum Winnings

 

 

1. Maximum & Minimum bet limits vary from sport to sport & from game to game.

 

 

2. A bet is accepted on the basis that it is the investment of one customer only.

 

 

9. Time of Acceptance

 

 

1. If, for any reason, a bet is inadvertently accepted after the event or match has started the selection(s) affected will be made void. The only exception would be if the Event in question is covered by our ‘in play’ or Live service.

 

 

2. We reserve the right to amend obvious errors, and accept bets after an Event has started by mutual consent. If at the time the bet was placed, the race or event was resolved or at a stage where the client could have had any indication of the outcome we reserve the right to void that selection.

 

 

3. In the event of there being a dispute over the time at which a bet was placed, then the time at which it was recorded on our Servers will govern the settlement.

 

 

10. Live or In-Play Betting

 

 

1. Live or In-Play Betting is, by nature, subject to large and sudden changes in odds as the Event unfolds. For this reason, we cannot guarantee that prices will always be available, and reserve the right not to offer odds throughout the entire match at our absolute discretion.

 

 

2. In addition, we reserve the right to refuse or void bets, even when prices are displayed on our website, if due to circumstances outside of our control the prices shown are wide of the Industry Market price at the time the bet is placed. Our decision regarding this is final.

 

 

3. Bet Type Rules

 

 

11. General

 

 

1. Outright (Future Bets)

 

 

1. Outright means betting on the winner of an Event, race or tournament.

 

 

2. If a competitor/player does not start an Event, race or tournament then all Outright bets on that competitor/player will be void.

 

 

3. If there are two or more winners, or a “Dead Heat” is declared in any Outright Market then your stake is divided by the number of winners, and this new amount is then settled at the full odds (not including the stake). For example, if there are multiple winners of the English Premier League Top Goalscorer market. In our example two players were declared as winners. Your bet of 1,000 on Sergio Agüero (one of the Winners) at odds of 3.50 would be settled as follows: (1,000/2) x 3.50. 500 x 3.50 = 1,750 returns.

 

 

4. The term “Any Other Player” (or Any Other Team, Score etc.) refers to all competitors or options not named in the market.

 

 

5. The term ‘Others on Request’ refers to any unquoted Player, Team or Score etc. Should you require a price for a selection not named in the market please contact our Customer Service & we might add in the selections you request. In all instances we will attempt to offer all obvious outcomes. For markets that refer to ‘Others on Request’ where a selection not named is the Winner. All bets would be settled as losers.

 

 

2. Full Time Result

 

 

1. Full Time Result is a three way bet on the outcome of a sports event and is subject only for regulation time of certain sport. This includes any added injury or stoppage time but does not include extra-time or penalty shootout.

1. Moneyline means betting on one competitor or team to defeat another in an event or to be placed higher in an event match-up. Remaining Moneyline rules are set out in the Specific Event Betting Rules.

 

 

2. The term “The Field” refers to all competitors other than the competitor named in the Moneyline match up.

 

 

4. Handicap & Total markets

 

 

1. Handicap means betting when one competitor or team receives a virtual head start (effectively leading by that head start before the Event begins). The winner is the competitor or team with the better score after adding the given handicap to the result. For both totals and sides betting all stakes are returned when the final score falls on the handicap line (in America termed as a 'push'). Remaining Handicap rules are set out in the specific Sport Betting Rules.

 

 

2. Over/Under means betting that is determined by the total number of points (or goals, games etc.) in the result of an Event. If the total is more than the Over/Under pre-designated line then the winning result is Over; if the total is less than the Over/Under pre-designated line then the winning result is Under.

 

 

5. Odd/Even

 

 

1. Odd/Even means betting that is determined by whether the total number of points (or goals, games etc.) in the final result of an Event is Odd or Even. For all Odd/Even markets Zero is counted as Even for settlement purposes.

 

 

2. Any extra-time or Overtime added in the match will not be counted for purposes of determining the full-time score except where stated either in the market or the individual sport rules.

 

 

6. Multiple Bets / Parlays

 

 

1. Multiple bets (or Parlay) means bets in a combination of two up to 20 selections placed as one wager. If all selections should win then the Multiple wins & will be paid at the combined odds of all selections. If one (or more) selections should fail to win then the multiple loses. If one (or more) selections should be postponed or void for any reason, then the odds for that selection will revert to 1.00 odds.

 

 

2. During a Match or Event (in play) if any part of the bet is rejected the whole multiple will be rejected. In play Events and pre-match events may be included in the same multiple.

 

 

3. Multiple bets are not accepted where the outcome of one part of the bet contributes to the outcome of another. E.g. No Goalscorer and 0-0 Correct Score in the same Match. Our system should reject such bets but if taken in error the stakes will be refunded. If you are unsure if your bet is related please check with Customer Service prior to placing your wager. The decision of BetJoe as to whether selections are related will be final. 

 

 

4. On occasion, we will offer special prices for related bets E.g. Scorecast – First Goalscorer and Correct Score double. These two bets would not be acceptable as a multiple bet, but we offer a special price for this eventuality.
