  3. Where there is no video recording available, the correct score/result shall be determined by reference to the score/result posted on the official website of the sport governing body unless the official website's posted result is manifestly wrong, in which case the Operator shall use its best endeavours to determine the correct outcome to be used to determine the winner and/or the result. In such cases, the Operator's decision shall be final.

IN RUNNING ("LIVE") BETS SERVICE

  1. In Running ("Live") bets are only available for those sports that the Operator designates as live betting markets and only in respect of those matches marked as "live" or "live bets" or by a LIVE sign in the list of events or in a special file entitled "LIVE" on the Website.
  2. An In Running ("Live") bet is where the End User is permitted to place a bet during an ongoing match or event up to such time when the Operator ceases betting on that match or event.
  3. In an In Running ("Live") Bet for Asian Handicap bets, two types of scoring system are displayed on the Website:
    • Where current scores or results are updated and displayed ("Type A Scoring"). The settlement of a bet is determined by the result of the final score (including the handicap) at the conclusion of the match or Period Betting (depending on the nature of the bet), minus the current score at the time of the placing and acceptance of the bet.
    • Where current scores or results are not displayed and instead a 0-0 score or result will be displayed ("Type B Scoring"). The settlement of a bet is determined by the result of the final score (including the handicap) at the conclusion of the match or Period Betting (depending on the nature of the bet). The End User is advised to verify match status before placing their bet.
  4. Depending on the specific sport, selected markets may be offered for betting at the sole discretion of the Operator. The Operator does not acknowledge or accept any liability whatsoever if it is not possible to place a bet or if the live score update is incorrect. It is the scores or results displayed at the conclusion of the match that are valid.
  5. At all times, it is the End User's responsibility to be aware about the score and is advised to verify match status before placing your bets.
  6. Unless otherwise stated on the Specific Sport Rules, any information, statistic or editorial text ( e.g. scores, timers or results) displayed on the website during an In Running ("Live") game situation are purely for general information purposes and should not be relied upon for betting purposes.
  7. As with non-live bets, the winner of an event will be determined at the conclusion of the event. Protested, appealed or overturned decisions will not be recognized for wagering purposes and subsequent changes to the results will not affect the outcome of the bet.
  8. The Operator reserves the right to suspend a market or not accept bets at anytime without notice. When a market is suspended any bets placed for that market but prior to being accepted by the Operator may be rejected at the Operator's discretion. Any bets accepted prior to suspension or cessation of the live market will stand, while any bets placed after live betting has ceased will not be accepted unless otherwise stated in the Specific Sports Rules.
  9. During In Running ("Live") bet conditions, bets placed will be kept in pending mode during specific high risk/ danger moments in a match. Such bets will be indicated as "Pending" on each bet slip until such time when the bet is accepted or rejected by the Operator. High Risk/ Danger moments are defined as follows:
    • Corner kicks;
    • Penalty kicks;
    • Free kick awarded to attacking team near the opponent's penalty box area;
    • Throw in given to attacking team near the opponent's penalty box area;
    • Whenever a team is in a potential scoring scenario as in an active attacking mode,
  10. All bets on Asian Handicap and Over/Under that are in Pending mode (other than bets on Total Bookings, Total Corners, Total Offsides, Total Substitutions and/or bets which do not have an effect on the overall result of the match) will be cancelled if one of the following occurs:
    • A goal is scored
    • A player is sent off
  11. All other bets such as Total Bookings, Total Corners, Total Offsides, Total Substitutions and/or bets which do not have an effect on the overall result of the match may be accepted at the Operator's discretion.
  12. The Operator at its sole discretion shall determine the time in which any goal or point was scored. References as to the time of goal(s) or points scored as stated in official league/club website, media website or "live score" website may be considered for guidance purposes but shall not be binding on the Operator in its determination of time.
  13. Where the Operator has reason to believe or suspect that a live bet has been placed after the outcome of a live event is known or if delayed "live" television coverage results in a live bet being placed at the incorrect price after the selected participant has gained an advantage (to be determined at the Operator's sole discretion), the Operator shall be entitled to treat the bet as void without having to provide any reason whatsoever.
  14. In the event of any technical malfunction, including the crashing of its website or suffers any downtime which hinders, delays or prevents the Operator from accessing its website to update the score, odds or handicap, the Operator reserves the right to cancel all pending bets placed at the time of the incident.
  15. With regard to live betting, the general rules concerning results' evaluation apply. Where a live event is interrupted in the course of play, causing the event to be postponed or abandoned, any bets taken on such postponed or abandoned events that are not restarted within 12 hours from the event commencement time (unless specifically provided for in a particular sports' betting rule) shall be void. The exception shall be for bets which have been unconditionally determined before the actual interruption of play. In such circumstances, such bets will be valid.
