General Rules

  1. If any selection which makes up part of a multiple becomes void, then the multiple itself does not become void. For example, if 3 matches are chosen to form a treble and one match later becomes void, the bet becomes a double; a 4-fold bet becomes a treble and so on. Even if all but one of the selections are void, the bet will still stand as a single.

  2. No multiple bets can be accepted where individual legs are 'connected'. For example, one leg of a 'double' is for Nadal to beat Federer in the 4th Round at Wimbledon and the second or additional leg is for Nadal to win the overall Wimbledon title. The match forms part of the overall tournament and is therefore 'connected'. Should such a bet be accepted in error the stake will be divided equally between the connected selections.

  3. Similarly, no two legs of a multiple bet can be placed from the same individual event. For example, Chelsea are playing Liverpool and you choose as your first leg 'Chelsea to win 2-0', from the 'Correct Score' market; you cannot now add an additional selection from within this game to form another leg of your multiple, whatever the market. This includes the 'Win/Draw/Win' market.

  4. All sports are governed by the rules set out in + General Rules and Horse Racing unless the rules specific to that sport specify differently.

  5. Please refer to out "Terms and Conditions" regarding limits and related issues.

Horse Racing

Ante-post Betting
  1. Ante-post prices are offered on most major horse racing events up to 3 days prior to the scheduled day of the race. Ante-post bets are accepted on the basis of all in run, unless a "with a run" price is offered. Stakes are lost if an ante-post selection does not take part. No deductions are made to winning ante-post bets.

  2. Where weather or outside influences cause an event to be postponed or rescheduled to another day then ante-post bets will stand, provided that the entries are not re-opened.

  3. Ante-post bets on horse racing will be void if the race is officially abandoned or declared void, or the conditions of the race or venue are altered. Should bets be void due to these circumstances then any multiple bet, which includes this selection will be paid out on the remaining selections.

Feature Race Multiples
  1. The horseracing year provides occasions when the same selection can be backed to win two different events.

  2. In these events the multiple bet will be reduce by 1/3 (one third) of the accumulated odds. Clients are not permitted to place a wager on the same selection at the accumulative odds. If accepted in error, bets will be settled at the odds quoted as normal, for the first event to take place, and our next available odds after the first event for that selection for the subsequent event.

Example: El Pica to win the Cape Met - 10/1 El Pica to win the Durban July - 20/1 > Ante-post Double Price - 230/1 * 66% = 150/1 A normal multiplied odds multiple is not permitted.

SP or Starting Price

SP or Starting Price refers to the fixed odds price of a horse when the race starts, or the last available fixed odds price on that horse. For further descriptions on various bet types, please see our betting Glossary (link at the bottom of the page).

Withdrawals / Scratchings

In all horse races, excluding ante-post bets, if a horse is withdrawn without coming under starters orders it is treated as a non-runner. 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. The deduction will be defined in accordance with the following table.
