RULES AND REGULATIONS

PART A - INTRODUCTION

1. USE AND INTERPRETATION

The Bettor.com Rules and Regulations ("Bettor.com Rules") are part of the terms and conditions. The Bettor.com Rules relate to all Bettor.com markets and consist of the following:

o The INTRODUCTION section (Part A);
o The GENERAL RULES (set out in Part B below);
o The SPECIFIC SPORTS RULES (set out in Part C below – these apply to certain sports and to financial markets); and
o The MARKET INFORMATION (located on the right hand side of the screen in every Bettor.com market under the tab entitled "Rules").

The GENERAL RULES apply to all bets unless otherwise stated in the Market Information or in the Specific Sports Rules. If there is any inconsistency between the Specific Sports Rules and the General Rules, the Specific Sports Rules shall prevail. If there is any inconsistency between the Market Information and either the General Rules or the Specific Sports Rules, the Market Information shall prevail unless the General Rules or Specific Sports Rules use the phrase 'regardless of what it says in the Market Information' or similar wording.

For any category or market not referred to in the Specific Sports Rules (e.g. special bets), the General Rules and Market Information will apply.

2. MARKET INFORMATION

The Market Information is provided for information purposes as an at-a-glance guide on how Bettor.com intends to manage the market. The Market Information may also contain rules on market settlement, however it must always be read in conjunction with the General Rules and the relevant Specific Sports Rules and a link to this Rules and Regulations page should be provided in the Market Information for each market.

Whilst the Market Information may give a guide to how markets will be managed, regardless of what it says in the Market Information Bettor.com reserves the right to suspend any market at any time at its sole discretion, including in order to carry out necessary administration and/or to take any necessary action to protect Bettor.com customers.

Bettor.com shall not alter the Market Information after a market has been loaded except to correct obvious errors and/or to add wording to clarify the Market Information where appropriate.

3. CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITY

Bettor.com customers should make themselves aware of all of the Bettor.com Rules affecting any market on which they wish to place a bet. Customers cannot simply rely on the Market Information as the Market Information is unlikely to contain all of the applicable rules relating to a market.

4. CUSTOMER BETTING DISPUTES

Any Bettor.com customer who has any concerns or questions regarding the Bettor.com Rules or regarding the settlement of any Bettor.com market should contact Bettor.com via email at info@bettor.com or via the relevant country-specific Helpdesk email address or telephone number.

If a customer is not satisfied with how a bet or a market has been settled then the customer should provide details of their grievance to Bettor.com via email at info@bettor.com or via the relevant country-specific Helpdesk email address or telephone number. Bettor.com shall use its reasonable endeavours to respond to queries of this nature within a few days (but intends in any event to respond to all such queries within 14 days of receipt).

PART B - GENERAL RULES

1. MANAGING MARKETS IN-PLAY

1.1 General

o For everything other than horseracing and greyhound racing, if a market is not scheduled to be turned in-play but Bettor.com fails to suspend the market at the relevant time, then:

if the event has a scheduled 'off' time, all bets matched after that scheduled off time will be void;
if the event does not have a scheduled 'off' time, Bettor.com will use its reasonable endeavours to ascertain the time of the actual 'off' and all bets after the time of the 'off' determined by Bettor.com will be void.

o For horseracing and greyhound racing, if a market is not scheduled to be turned in-play but Bettor.com fails to suspend the market at the relevant time, then all bets matched after the official 'off' time will be void.
o Bettor.com aims to use its reasonable endeavours to suspend in-play markets at the start of and at the end of the event. However, regardless of what it says in the Market Information, Bettor.com does not guarantee that such markets will be suspended at the relevant time.
o Bettor.com will not part-suspend outcomes/selections in a market that has been turned in-play. o Bettor.com customers are responsible for managing their in-play bets at all times.
o For the purposes of in-play betting, customers should be aware that transmissions described as "live" by some broadcasters may actually be delayed or pre-recorded. The extent of any delay may vary depending on the set-up through which they are receiving pictures or data.

1.2 All markets other than Football markets - not suspending at the time of the 'off'

o Bettor.com aims to use its reasonable endeavours to turn markets in-play, which are scheduled to be turned in-play, at the time of the 'off'. The time of the 'off' for such markets should be set out in the Market Information. However, regardless of what it says in the Market Information, Bettor.com does not guarantee that such markets will be suspended and turned in-play at the time of the 'off'.

● If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Bettor.com does not suspend the market at the time of the 'off' and the market is not turned in-play at any time during the event, all bets matched after the scheduled time of the 'off' will be void (in the case of horseracing and greyhound racing, bets will be void from the official rather than the scheduled 'off' time). If the event does not have a scheduled 'off' time, Bettor.com will use its reasonable endeavours to ascertain the time of the actual 'off' and all bets after the time of the 'off' determined by Bettor.com will be void.
● If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Bettor.com does not suspend the market at the time of the 'off' (so unmatched bets are not cancelled at that time), but the market is intentionally turned in-play at a later time during the event, all bets matched after the time of the 'off' will stand.

1.3 Soccer markets - not suspending at kick-off

o In relation to soccer markets that are scheduled to be turned in-play, Bettor.com aims to use its reasonable endeavours to turn such markets in-play at kick-off and to suspend such markets on the occurrence of a Material Event (see definition of "Material Event" below). o The relevant scheduled kick-off time should be set out in the Market Information. However, regardless of what it says in the Market Information, Bettor.com does not guarantee that such markets will be suspended and turned in-play at kick-off.


● If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Bettor.com does not suspend the market at kick-off and the market is not turned in-play at any time during the match, all bets matched after the scheduled time of the kick-off will be void.
● If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but Bettor.com does not suspend the market at kick-off (so unmatched bets are not cancelled at that time), but the market is turned in-play at a later time during the match, all bets matched after the scheduled time of the kick-off and before the first "Material Event" will stand. However, if there has been one or more "Material Events", any bets matched between the first "Material Event" and the market being turned in-play will be void.

o For the purpose of this rule, a "Material Event" shall mean a goal being scored, a penalty being awarded or a player being sent off.

2. RESULTS AND MARKET SETTLEMENT

2.1 General

o Markets will be settled as set out in the Market Information and/or the Specific Sports Rules.
o Where the Market Information or Specific Sports Rules do not specify how and on what basis a market will be settled, markets will be settled on the official result of the relevant governing body regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result (except if an amendment is announced within 24 hours of the initial settlement of the relevant market in order to correct an error in reporting the result).
o If no official result of a relevant governing body is available, the result will be determined by Bettor.com (acting reasonably) using information from independent sources. In such cases, if any new information comes into the public domain within 48 hours of settlement, then Bettor.com shall (acting reasonably) determine either: (i) whether the market should be reinstated or resettled in light of this new information; or (ii) whether or not to wait for further information before deciding whether to reinstate or resettle the market. Except where Bettor.com has announced that it is waiting for further information, any information that comes into the public domain more than 48 hours after a market has been settled shall not be considered by Bettor.com (regardless of whether or not such information may have led to a different result). o In the event of any uncertainty about any result or potential result, Bettor.com reserves the right to suspend settlement of any market for an unlimited period until the uncertainty can be resolved to the reasonable satisfaction of Bettor.com. Bettor.com reserves the right to void any market if the uncertainty regarding settlement cannot be resolved to Bettor.com's reasonable satisfaction.

2.2 Resettlements

o Markets are generally settled shortly after the end of the event in question. Bettor.com may settle (or part-settle) some markets before the official result is declared (or may increase a customer's 'available to bet' balance by the minimum potential winnings of that customer on a given market) purely as a customer service benefit. However, Bettor.com reserves the right to amend the settlement of the market if: (i) the official result is different to the result on which Bettor.com initially settled the market (for example, a horseracing result being changed by the relevant governing body shortly after a race); or (ii) if the whole market is eventually voided (e.g. for an abandoned event).
o Bettor.com reserves the right to reverse the settlement of a market if a market is settled in error (for example, a human or technical error)
. • If Bettor.com resettles a market, this may lead to amendments being made to a customer's balance to reflect changes in market settlement.

2.3 Non-runners, withdrawals and disqualifications

o Subject always to Bettor.com's right to void bets under its terms and conditions or for any exception under the Bettor.com Rules, if a market contains a statement that says "ALL BETS STAND, RUN OR NOT" (or something similar) in the Market Information, then all bets on a team or competitor will stand regardless of whether or not the team or competitor starts the event or takes any part in the event.
o Where the Market Information does not stipulate that all bets will stand regardless of participation, customers should refer to the relevant Specific Sports Rules.
o If a team or competitor is disqualified, withdraws or forfeits after starting an event they will be deemed a loser providing at least one other team or competitor completes the event. If no team or competitor completes an event (having started) then all bets will be void except for bets on any markets which have been unconditionally determined.

2.4 'Winner with [named selection ]' markets

o Bettor.com may from time to time offer markets that are dependent on the participation of a particular competitor. If the competitor named either in a 'Winner with …' market title or in the Market Information does not participate in the tournament or event then all bets on the market will be void. For example, if there was a "Winner with Federer" tennis market, all bets on the market would be void if Federer did not participate in the tournament. However, if any other competitor did not participate, then bets would stand.

o A team or competitor will be deemed to have participated if they have taken part to the extent necessary to record an official result or classification (including any disqualification but excluding any "did not start" or equivalent classification).

3. ABANDONMENTS, CANCELLATIONS, POSTPONEMENTS

o Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information. However, where a market has no rules in the Specific Sports Rules or the Market Information in relation to an abandonment, cancellation and/or postponement the following shall apply.
o In relation to any match, fixture, game, individual event, race or similar: If the event is not completed within three days after the scheduled completion date, then all bets on markets for this event will be void, except for bets on any markets that have been unconditionally determined.
o In relation to any tournament, competition or similar: If the event is not completed within three days after the scheduled completion date, then any markets relating to the event will be settled in accordance with the official ruling of the relevant governing body, providing such a decision is given within 90 days after the scheduled completion date. If no official ruling is announced in this 90 day period, then bets on any market relating to this event will be void, except for bets on any markets which have been unconditionally determined. If a market is to be voided but has been part-settled as a courtesy to Bettor.com customers, then such part-settled bets will be reversed and all bets on the market will be void.
o Bettor.com will decide (acting reasonably) whether a market relates to a match (or similar) or a tournament (or similar). However, by way of example, the following shall apply: (i) UEFA Cup outright = tournament; (ii) Champions League Group outright = tournament; (iii) Top Premiership goalscorer = tournament; (iv) 72-hole Golf Match bet = match; (v) Ryder Cup outright = tournament; (vi) Golf tournament outright = tournament; (vii) Tennis Tournament outright = tournament;(viii) 5-day Cricket Test Match = match; (ix) Ashes Series outright winner = tournament; (x) Motor Race (e.g. Grand Prix) = match.

4. CHANGE OF VENUE

o Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information. However, if change of venue is not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information then the following shall apply:
o For any team sport: if the scheduled venue is changed after the market is loaded by Bettor.com, all bets will be void only if the new venue is a home ground of the original away team.
• For all categories or markets other than team sports: if the scheduled venue is changed after the market is loaded by Bettor.com, all bets will stand. o If there is a change in the type of scheduled surface (e.g. a hockey match switching from grass to astro-turf) after the market has been loaded, all bets will stand.

5. PERIODS OF TIME

o Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules or the Market Information then the following shall apply.
o If the scheduled duration of an event is changed after the market has been loaded but before the start of the event, then all bets will be void.
o Some markets refer to the length of time until an occurrence in the event (e.g. time of first goal). If an event happens in stoppage or injury time after any regular time period then it will be deemed to have occurred at the end of the regular time period. For example, if a goal is scored in first half stoppage-time in a soccer match it will be deemed to have occurred on 45 minutes.
o All bets apply to the relevant full 'regular time' period including stoppage time. Any extra-time and/or penalty shoot-out is not included.
o References within these Rules and Regulations to a particular number of 'days' shall mean the end of the day local time after the expiry of the specified number of days. For example, if a rugby match is scheduled for the 1st of December, then the rule that allows the match to be completed within three days after the scheduled completion date (see Paragraph 3 above) would mean that the deadline for completion of that match would be 23.59:59 on the 4th of December.

6. MATCH BETS

o Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information. For example, for match bets on Golf markets the rules are set out in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules or the Market Information then the following shall apply.
o 'Match Bets' for one-off events are determined by the competitor or team with the best score, time or finishing position in the event. If none of the competitors or teams involved in the match bet complete the event or register a score, time or finishing position then bets are void unless specified otherwise in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information. Any competitor or team not completing an event or registering a score, time or finishing position having taken part in the match bet event will be settled as a loser providing at least one other team or competitor completes that event or registers a score, time or finishing position.
o 'Match Bets' for progress in a competition or event with multiple heats or rounds are determined by the competitor or team which qualifies to the furthest round (whether it takes part in the further round or not) or with the best score, time or finishing position in the final or same heat of that competition or event. If the relevant competitors or teams fail to qualify in the same round of the competition but in different heats then dead-heat rules will apply, irrespective of the finishing positions in their respective heats. Markets will be part-settled after the end of each round and any subsequent disqualifications, penalties or amendments to results or qualifications will not have any effect on the market. Where one or more of the competitors or teams are disqualified, for the purposes of settlement, the disqualified competitor or team will be deemed to have progressed further in the competition or event than all those eliminated from the competition or event prior to the disqualification, and will be deemed to have finished last (or joint last if there is more than one disqualification) of those still competing in the competition or event. Disqualification will be considered to have taken place at the time of the competitor's or team's removal from the competition or event by the relevant governing body, rather than at the time of the event which caused disqualification.
o If one of the competitors or teams does not take any part in the event, then all match bets will be void.
o If an event or tournament is abandoned or reduced in duration such that any competitor or team fails to complete the match bet, event or tournament for any reason other than withdrawal or disqualification then all bets will be void except for those on markets which have been unconditionally determined.

7. "TO QUALIFY" MARKETS

o Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules or the Market Information then the following shall apply.
o Any 'to qualify' market (e.g. "to reach the final" markets) will be determined by the competitor or team that qualifies under the terms set out in Market Information, whether or not they take part in the next round or event for which they have qualified. Markets will be settled after the qualifying stage and any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result will not count.

8. DEAD HEATS

o Unless stated otherwise in the Specific Sports Rules and/or the Market Information the Dead Heat Rule applies to bets on a market where there are more winners than expected (as set out in the Market Information).
o For each bet matched on a relevant winning selection, the stake money is first reduced in proportion by multiplying it by the sum of the number of winners expected (as set out in the Market Information), divided by the number of actual winners (i.e. stake multiplied by (number of winners expected/number of actual winners)). The winnings are then paid to the successful backers on this 'reduced stake' (reduced stake multiplied by traded price) and the remaining stake money is paid to the appropriate layers.
o For example, assume there is a dead heat for first place between three horses. 'Client A' has backed one of the winners for a stake of 300 at the traded price of 4.0 and 'Client B' has taken the other side of this bet. When the event is settled, the stake (300) is multiplied by 1/3 (i.e. the number of expected winners (1) divided by the number of actual winners (3)) to calculate the reduced stake (100) and the remainder given to the layer (200). The backer then receives the traded price matched (4.0) multiplied by the reduced stake (4 x 100 = 400). In this example, Client A's net winnings are 100 (400 payout minus the original 300 stake), and Client B's net losses are 100. Alternatively, this can be viewed as the full amount paid to the traded price divided by the number of dead-heaters. In the above example this would be 300 at the traded price of 4.0 (1200) divided by 3; making 400 payout and 100 net winnings.
o By way of another example, assume there is an outright winner in a golf tournament but 7 players tie for 2nd place. In the "top 5 finish" market, after settling on the outright winner in the top 5 market there would be 4 other designated winners places available. 'Client A' has backed one of the winners for 300 at the traded price of 4.0 and 'Client B' has taken the other side of this bet. When the event is settled, the stake (300) is multiplied by 4/7 (i.e. the number of expected winners (4) divided by the number of actual winners (7)) to calculate the reduced stake (171.43) and the remainder given to the layer (128.57). The backer then receives the traded price matched (4.0) multiplied by the reduced stake (4 x 171.43 = 685.72). In this example, Client A's net winnings are 385.72 (685.72 payout minus the original 300 stake), and Client B's net losses are 385.72.

9. MISCELLANEOUS

o All references to time periods in the Bettor.com Rules relate to UK time, not the time zone in which the event takes place.
o All information supplied by Bettor.com is done so in good faith. However, Bettor.com cannot accept liability for any errors or omissions in respect of any information, such as the posting of prices, runners, times, scores, results or general statistics.
o Bettor.com reserves the right to correct any obvious errors and shall take all reasonable steps to ensure markets are administered with integrity and transparency.
o If an incorrect team or competitor name is displayed (excluding minor spelling mistakes) or the incorrect number of teams, competitors or outcomes is displayed in any complete market or a market is otherwise loaded using incorrect information or includes any obvious error, then Bettor.com reserves the right to suspend the market and (providing it acts reasonably) to void all bets matched on the market prior to the market being amended or reformed.
o Customers are responsible for ensuring that they satisfy themselves that the selection on which they place a bet is their intended selection. For example, in the case of a competitor bearing the same name as another individual not competing in the relevant event, the onus is on the customer to ensure that they know which competitor Bettor.com has loaded into the relevant market and to ensure that they are placing their bet on their chosen competitor.
o In the interests of maintaining integrity and fairness in the markets we may, at our sole and absolute discretion, decide to suspend betting on a market earlier than anticipated by the Bettor.com Rules and/or void certain bets or a market in its entirety.
o Bettor.com reserves the right to amend the Bettor.com Rules at any time. Any such revision will be binding and effective immediately on the posting of such rule changes on Bettor.com and any markets loaded after the new Bettor.com Rules have been posted shall be governed by the new Bettor.com Rules.
o Bettor.com reserves the right to cancel unmatched bets to protect customers at any time.
o On the settlement of any market, amounts relating to winnings/losses on bets will be rounded to the nearest two decimal places. For example where an amount is £3.33333 the settlement amount will be £3.33. In the event that the amount ends in 0.5 it will be rounded up. On commission calculation, the amount shall be rounded to the nearest two decimal places. In the event that the amount ends in 0.5 it will be rounded up.
o By their nature Special Bets markets are unpredictable so should be treated with particular caution. Customers are responsible for managing their own positions at all times.

10.2 Ante-post

o If a greyhound listed in an ante-post market dies, Bettor.com will use the available information to determine the time of the greyhound's death. Bettor.com will then, acting reasonably, determine whether the greyhound was a 'material runner' in the market. In determining whether a greyhound is a material runner, Bettor.com will look at the general price of the greyhound immediately before the greyhound's death, in the Bettor.com market and in the general bookmaker market. Broadly, Bettor.com will consider a greyhound to be a material runner if it is deemed to have an approximate chance of winning of 8-10 per cent or better.
● If Bettor.com determines that the greyhound was a 'material runner', then all bets struck in the market (on all selections) between the time of death and the suspension of the market will be void and all unmatched bets will be cancelled before the market is reopened.
● If Bettor.com determines that the greyhound was not a 'material runner', then just bets struck on the greyhound in question between the time of death and the suspension of the market will be void and unmatched bets will not be cancelled before the market is reopened.
o Bets matched on greyhounds after they have forfeited their entry at a particular entry stage or where they have not qualified by the applicable qualifying date will be voided unless the race in question has a subsequent supplementary entry stage.
o Where an event is postponed or rescheduled to another day at the same venue then ante-post bets will stand unless entries are reopened in which case all bets will be void.

11. HORSERACING

11.1 General

o All individual race markets will be determined according to the official result at the time of the 'weigh-in' announcement. Subsequent disqualifications, appeals or amendments to the result will be disregarded.
o If a race is abandoned or otherwise declared void, or in the event of a walkover, all bets on that race will be void.
o If the scheduled venue is changed after the market has been loaded by Bettor.com, all bets will be void.
o Where a race is postponed and does not take part on its scheduled day, all bets will be void.
o If a scheduled surface type is changed (e.g. turf to dirt) all bets will stand.

11.2 Ante-post

o Subject to the points below, in ante-post markets, all bets on an individual horse stand whether the horse runs or not.
o For GB and Irish racing: if a horse is balloted out, all bets on that horse will be void.
o If a horse listed in an ante-post market dies, Bettor.com will use the available information to determine the time of the horse's death. Bettor.com will then, acting reasonably, determine whether the horse was a 'material runner' in the market Bettor.com will undertake a similar determination in cases where it is advised through official channels that a runner has been formally scratched from an ante-post race. In determining whether a horse is a material runner, Bettor.com will consider the general price of the horse immediately before the horse's death (or immediately before being advised it has been scratched), in the Bettor.com market and in the general bookmaker market. Broadly, Bettor.com will consider a horse to be a material runner if it is deemed to have an approximate chance of winning of 8-10 per cent or better.
● If Bettor.com determines that the horse was a 'material runner', then all bets struck in the market (on all selections) between the time of death (or the time that the formal scratching notification was created) and the suspension of the market will be void and all unmatched bets will be cancelled before the market is reopened.
● If Bettor.com determines that the horse was not a 'material runner', then just bets struck on the horse in question between the time of death (or the time that the formal scratching notification was created) and the suspension of the market will be void and unmatched bets will not be cancelled before the market is reopened.
o Bets matched on horses after they have forfeited their entry at a particular entry stage or where they have not qualified by the applicable qualifying date will be voided unless the race in question has a subsequent supplementary entry stage.
o If a race has a supplementary entry stage, horses will not be removed from the market until the date of that supplementary entry stage (even if they have not been entered for the race, have forfeited their entry at an earlier entry/forfeit stage or have been scratched).
o No 'Bettor.com Non-Runner Rule' reductions are made to ante-post bets.
o Where an event is postponed or rescheduled to another day at the same venue then ante-post bets will stand unless entries are reopened in which case all bets will be void.

11.3 Place Terms

o The number of winners in 'to be placed' markets is as set out in the Market Information and is determined with reference to the number of runners known to Bettor.com when the market is loaded.
o Once opened, the number of winners in 'to be placed' markets will not be affected by further non-runners.
o If the number of winners stated in the Market Information is equal to or is greater than the number of runners, all bets in this market will be void.
o If the number of placed horses is less than the number of potential winners listed in the Market Information, the winners will only be the placed horse or horses.

11.4 Bettor.com Non-Runner Rule

o Bettor.com's non-runner rule relates to the adjustment of odds on bets already matched when a horse in a race is declared a non-runner. In order to make the adjustment Bettor.com applies a reduction factor to the remaining runners. The reduction factor allocated to a non-runner is a calculation (the details of which are described below) of that horse's chances of winning (or being placed, etc as appropriate) and is applied to bets already matched on the other runners in the relevant market or markets.
o Any horse listed when the relevant market is loaded which does not subsequently come under starter's orders is deemed to be a non-runner.
o When the market is loaded each horse is given a 'reduction factor', based on a forecast price, which is expressed as a percentage. These reduction factors may be updated periodically at the discretion of Bettor.com based on trading in the market, but after approximately 15 minutes from the scheduled 'off' time of a given race, they will be updated only in exceptional circumstances. The current reduction factor percentage for each horse can be viewed in the Market Information page on the Bettor.com website.
o As soon as Bettor.com becomes aware that a horse is a confirmed non-runner, the following will happen:

● All matched bets on that horse will be void and the horse will be removed from the market.
● In the win market: the traded price of all the matched bets on the remaining horses will be reduced by an amount equal to the non-runner's final reduction factor and if the reduction factor is greater than or equal to 2.5%, all the unmatched offers to lay will be cancelled. If the non-runner's reduction factor is less than 2.5%, unmatched bets will not be cancelled.
● All the reduction factors on the remaining horses will be adjusted to reflect their improved chance of winning.
● In the event of a non-runner being removed from a race in error, Bettor.com will reinstate both the runner and all previously matched bets associated with that runner. All bets made between the time of withdrawal and reinstatement will be void in both the place market and the win market. The reduction factor applied to matched bets at the time of withdrawal will be reversed and the original prices will become valid.
● Any non-runners will be removed from the relevant markets in the order in which they are brought to Bettor.com's attention. If Bettor.com becomes aware of more than one non-runner at the same time, it will remove the non-runners from the relevant markets in racecard order.

11.5 How the Reductions are applied

o In the win market, reductions will be made on the traded price.
o For example: if the non-runner's final reduction factor is 25% the traded price on all previously matched bets on other horses will be reduced by 25% - traded price of 8.0 would become 6.0 etc. And these might be further reduced if another horse is subsequently declared a non-runner.
o The traded price may be further reduced if any other horse(s) is subsequently declared a non-runner, however odds cannot be reduced below 1.005.
o Reserves: A reserve runner may appear in the relevant markets but will have a non-applicable reduction factor until Bettor.com has received confirmation that it is a confirmed runner, in which case an applicable reduction factor may apply to it.
o For the avoidance of doubt, any reduction factor applicable to a non-runner replaced by a reserve, will be applied to all bets struck on the relevant markets, prior to the removal from those markets of such non-runner by Bettor.com. Likewise, should a reserve runner become a confirmed runner but subsequently become a non-runner, any reduction factor applicable to such non-runner will be applied to all bets struck on the relevant markets, prior to the removal from those markets of such non-runner by Bettor.com.

11.6 Additional rules

o Card numbers are posted as a guide only: bets are placed on a named horse.
o Horses will not be coupled.
o Where any horse(s) runs for purse money only it is deemed a non-runner for betting purposes. Should this result in the number of possible winners stated in the relevant Market Information being equal to or greater than the number of runners in the relevant Bettor.com market, all bets in the market will be void.

12. ICE HOCKEY
o All bets on "Regular Time" markets will be settled on the result at the end of regular time, excluding overtime. All bets on "Moneyline" markets will be settled at the result at the end of regular time including "overtime and any shootouts that may be played".
o If a match does not start on the scheduled start date and is not completed within three days of the scheduled start date, all bets will be void except for those on markets which have been unconditionally determined.
o If a match starts but is later abandoned or postponed then, within three days of the scheduled start date, (a) at least 55 minutes of play must have elapsed in any match; or (b) an official result must be 'called' by the relevant governing body; otherwise all bets will be void, except for those which have been unconditionally determined. In these instances, if the scores are tied then for "Moneyline" matches (where no tie is offered) dead heat rules will apply to bets on the outright match winner market.

13. MOTOR SPORT (which includes, amongst others, Formula One & MotoGP)

• If a race is abandoned and no presentation position or official result is declared all bets on that race will be void except for bets on any markets which have been unconditionally determined.
o If the scheduled venue is changed after the market has been loaded by Bettor.com, all bets will be void.

14. RUGBY UNION and RUGBY LEAGUE

o 'Tournament points' and 'tournament tries' bets will apply to all playing time, including any extra-time in any match where an official result is declared.
o For 'time of first try' bets, if the try is scored in the second half, the first half is deemed to have lasted 40 minutes, regardless of stoppage-time. If no try is scored, or the try is scored in second half stoppage-time or extra-time, the result is 80.
o For the purpose of markets involving tries, penalty tries will count with the exception of 'first individual try scorer' markets where penalty tries will not count.

15. SNOOKER AND POOL

o In the event of a match starting but not being completed, the player progressing to the next round will be deemed the winner (or in the case of the final the player declared the winner).
o If a match is not completed for any reason then bets on 'any correct score' or 'next frame' market will be void.

16. SOCCER

o If a match has not started (or if Bettor.com believes that a match will not have started) by 23:59 (local time) on its scheduled start date, then all bets will be void unless Bettor.com has knowledge that the match has been rescheduled to be played within three days of its original start date.
o If a match starts but is later abandoned or postponed and is not completed (i.e. 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time) within three days of the scheduled start date, all bets will be void except for those on markets which have been unconditionally determined.
o If a match starts but is later abandoned or postponed but is completed (i.e. 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any stoppage time) within three days of the scheduled start date, all bets will stand except if the match is restarted from the beginning. If the match is restarted from the beginning then all bets matched before the market went in-play will stand, but any bets placed in-play will be void, except for any bets placed in-play on markets which have been unconditionally determined, which will stand.
o If a team is disqualified, thrown out or otherwise removed from a league, one of the following will apply:

● If this happens before the relevant season has started, all bets on all affected markets will be void (except for those on markets which have been unconditionally determined);
● If this happens after the relevant season has started, all affected markets will stand and the team will be settled as a loser (assuming it is not reinstated and it is not officially the winner).
The relevant season will be deemed to have started once the first league game has been played. For the purposes of this rule, markets relating to individual matches will not be deemed to be "affected markets".
o For 'time of first goal' bets, the first half is deemed to last 45 minutes, regardless of stoppage time. Also for these markets, please note that the "0 – 10 Minutes" selection covers the first 10 minutes of the match. In other words, it runs from 0:00 until just before the clock hits 10:00. The "11 – 20 Minutes" selection runs from 10:00 until just before the clock hits 20:00. The same principle applies to each of the other selections in this market.
o For 'first' or 'last goalscorer' markets bets are void on any player who takes no part in the match or who comes on as a substitute after the 1st goal has been scored. Own goals do not count for either 'first' or 'last goalscorer' markets.
o For 'top goalscorer' markets only the goals scored in the league or competition stated in the Market Information count. For example, if a player joins a club mid-season any goals scored in a different league will not count, however goals scored for a different club in the same league will count. Own goals will not count.
o In markets which relate to the number of incidents to occur, such as 'number of corners', these will be determined on the basis of the number taken, rather than awarded.

17. TENNIS

o If a player or pairing retires or is disqualified in any match, the player or pairing progressing to the next round (or winning the tournament in the case of a final) will be deemed the winner. However if less than one set has been completed at the time of the retirement or disqualification then all bets relating to that individual match will be void.
o All bets will stand regardless of changes to scheduled venues, including any changes to a different type of surface. o If the scheduled duration of a match is reduced or increased in the number of games/sets required to win, all bets will be void except for those on markets which have been unconditionally determined.
o Where markets are offered on individual games or sets within a match, a retirement or disqualification during a game or set will render bets on that game or set market and all individual game or set markets void except those on markets which have been unconditionally determined.
