General Betting Rules - Section B
1. Common Terms of Reference
1.1. Unless listed either in conjunction with the bet offer, or else in the Sport Specific rules, all bets should be considered valid for the result at the end of the "Regular Time" or "Full Time" only. "Regular Time" or "Full time" is defined as interpreted by the official rules published by the respective governing association. For example, in football, full time is stipulated to be 90 minutes including injury time, and in ice hockey it is stipulated as the 3 x 20 minute periods. Should the governing association decide to stipulate, before the start of the event, that the said event is to be played over a different duration, this will be treated as being the official rules for the event (for example, Under 17 football played with 2 x 40 minutes). Nonetheless, such occurrence is limited to the "regular" playing time and does not include any prolongation such as Overtime, unless explicitly stated.
1.2. "Livebetting" is where it is possible to bet during an ongoing match or event. Sunbet does not acknowledge or accept any liability whatsoever if it is not possible to place a bet or the live score update is not correct. At all times it is your responsibility to be aware of the match and the events surrounding it such as the current score, its progression and how much time remains before the match is completed. Sunbet does not accept any liability for changes to the Livebetting schedule or interruption of the Livebetting service.
1.3. The 'Cash Out' function allows you the possibility to redeem a bet, which status has not been settled yet, at its current value. It is available on selected events both in pre-match and live, as well as on both single and multiple bets. Cash Out functionality cannot be used on free bets. Cash Out requests might be subject to the same delay procedure as listed in “Section A, Para 17.5”. Should it happen that during this delay, for whatever reason, either the offer is removed or odds fluctuate, the Cash Out request will not be accepted and you will be notified with an on-screen message. Sunbet reserves the right to offer such functionality solely at its own discretion and does not acknowledge or accept any liability whatsoever if the Cash Out functionality is not available. Should a Cash Out request be successful, the bet will be settled immediately and any subsequent events which occur in relation with the bet will not be taken into account. In the instance of a cashed out bet having suffered from a technical, pricing or settlement error at any time between the time of original placement and the cash out, Sunbet reserves the right rectify such inaccuracy in accordance with “Section A, Para 21.2”.
1.4. The "Participant" is an object constituting part of an event. In "Head-to-Head" and "Triple-Head" the Participant only refers to objects that are subject to the "Head-to-Head" or "Triple-Head" event in question.
1.5. The deadline (cut-off time) shown on the website is to be treated for information purposes only. Sunbet reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to suspend, partially or completely, the betting activity at any time where it deems necessary.
1.6. Statistics or editorial text published at the Sunbet website are to be considered as added information but Sunbet does not acknowledge or accept any liability whatsoever if the information is not correct under any circumstances. At all times it is your responsibility to be aware about circumstances relating to an event.
1.7. Theoretical return in Fixed-Odds Betting to you is given by the odds from all possible outcomes in the offer. The theoretical payback to you on a bet offer with 3 outcomes a, b and c can be calculated as follows:
Theoretical % = 1 / (1 / ”odds outcome a” + 1 / “odds outcome b” + 1 / “odds outcome c”) x 100
2. Bet Types
2.1. "Match" (aka 1X2) is where it is possible to bet on the (partial or definite) outcome of a match or event. The options are: "1" = Home team/Player 1, or the participant listed to the left side of the offer; "X" = Draw/Tie, or the selection in the middle; "2" = Away team/Player 2, or the participant listed to the right side of the offer. In particular instances or specific competitions, Sunbet might display an offer in the so-called “American” format (ie: Away Team @ Home Team), where the host team is listed following the visiting team. Irrespective of the positioning of the teams on the board/betslip, the references to “Home” and “Away” teams will always refer to the actual teams playing at home (host) and away (visitor) respectively, as determined by the official organization.
2.2. "Correct Score" (aka Result Betting) is where it is possible for you to bet on the (partial or definite) exact score of a match or event.
2.3. "Over/Under" or “Totals” is where it is possible for you to bet on the (partial or definite) amount of a predefined occurrence (e.g. goals, points, corners, rebounds, penalty minutes, etc.). Should the total amount of the listed occurrences be exactly equal to the betting line, then all bets on this offer will be declared void. For example: an offer where the betting line is 128.0 points and the match ends with the result 64-64 will be declared void.
2.4. "Odd/Even" is where it is possible for you to bet on the (partial or definite) amount of a predefined occurrence (e.g. goals, points, corners, rebounds, penalty minutes, etc.).For example: "Odd" is 1,3,5 etc.; "Even" is 0,2,4 etc.
2.5. A "Head-to-Head" and/or "Triple-Head" is a competition between 2 or 3 participants/outcomes, originating from either an officially organised event, or else, as virtually defined by Sunbet.
2.6. "Half time/Full time" is where it is possible for you to bet on the result in half time and the final outcome of the match. E.g. if at Half time the score is 1-0 and the match ends 1-1, the winning outcome is 1/X. The bet is void if the regular time of the match is played in a different time format than those listed in the bet (i.e. other than two halves).
2.7. "Period betting" is where it is possible for you to bet on the outcome of each separate period within a match/event. E.g. If the period scores in an ice hockey match are 2-0 / 0-1 / 1-1, the winning outcome is 1/2/X. The bet will be void if the regular time of the match is played in a different time format than those listed in the bet (i.e. other than three periods).
2.8. "Draw No Bet" is where it is possible for you to bet on either "1" or "2" as defined in <Section B, Para 2.1>. It is also common practice to refer to "Draw No Bet" in cases where no draw odds are offered. Should the specific match contain no winner (E.g. match ends as a draw), or the particular occurrence not happen (E.g. First Goal, Draw No Bet and match ends 0-0) the Stakes will be refunded to you.
2.9. "Handicap" is where it is possible for you to bet on whether the chosen outcome will be victorious once the listed handicap is added/subtracted (as applicable) to the match/period/total score to which the bet refers to. In those circumstances where the result after the adjustment of the handicap line is exactly equal to the betting line, then all bets on this offer will be declared void. For example: a bet on -3.0 goals will be declared void if the team chosen wins the match by exactly 3 goals difference (3-0,4-1, 5-2, etc.). Any reference in this section to the term “margin” is intended to be understood as the outcome emerging from the subtraction of the goals/points scored by the 2 teams/participants.
Unless otherwise stated all handicaps listed on Sunbet website are to be calculated based on the result from the start of the listed match/period to the end of the specified match/period. It is however customary that for certain handicap bet offers in specific sports (Asian Handicap in Football), only the outcomes obtained from the time of bet placement until the end of the listed timeframe will be taken into consideration, thus disregarding any goals/points scored before the time the bet was placed and accepted. Any bet offer with these characteristics will be clearly displayed on site and highlighted in the punter’s Bet History with the score at the time of bet placement.
There are 3 different “handicap betting” formats:
2-way Handicap: Team A (-1.5) vs Team B (+1.5)
- Team A is given a -1.5 goal handicap in the match. For the bet to be won, Team A must win the match with a margin equal or bigger than the listed handicap (i.e. 2 goals or more).
- Team B is given a +1.5 goal advantage in the match. For the bet to be won, Team B must either win the match, match finish in a draw or not lose with a margin equal or bigger than their listed advantage (i.e. lose with a 1 goal margin).
- 3-way Handicap: Team A (-2) Draw (Exactly 2) Team B (+2)
- For example:
- Team A is given a 2 goal handicap in the match. For the bet to be won, Team A must win the match with a bigger margin than the listed handicap (i.e. 3 goals or more).
- Draw would be the victorious outcome should the match end up with exactly the listed margin (ie. match ends with results such as 2-0, 3-1 and 4-2).
- Team B is given a 2 goal advantage in the match. For the bet to be won, Team B must either win the match, match finish in a draw or not lose with a margin equal or bigger than their listed advantage (i.e. lose with only a 1 goal margin).
- Asian Handicap: Team A (-1.75) vs Team B (+1.75)
- For example:
- Team A is given a -1.75 goal handicap in the match. This means that the Stake is divided into 2 equal bets and placed on the outcomes -1.5 and -2.0. For the bet to be fully paid out at the listed odds, Team A must win the match with a bigger margin than both of their listed handicaps (i.e. 3 goals or more margin). In the eventuality that Team A wins with only a 2 goal margin, the bet will be considered as partially won with a full payout on the -1.5 part of the bet and a refund on the -2.0 side since the outcome on that part of the bet would be considered a “tie”. Should the match produce any other outcome, including a Team A victory with only 1 goal of margin, the whole Stake would be lost.
- Team B is given a +1.75 goal advantage in the match. This means that the Stake is divided into 2 equal bets and placed on the outcomes +1.5 and +2.0. For the bet to be fully paid out at the listed odds, Team B must either win the match, match finish in a draw or not lose with a margin equal or bigger than any of their listed advantages (i.e. lose with only a 1 goal margin). In the eventuality that Team B loses with exactly a 2 goal margin, the bet will be considered as partially lost with a refund on the -2.0 part of the bet and a loss on the -1.5 part of the bet. Should the match produce any other outcome which results in a defeat of Team B with a margin of 3 or more goals, the whole Stake would be lost.
- 2.10. "Double Chance" is where it is possible for you to bet simultaneously on two (partial or definite) outcomes of a match or event. The options are: 1X, 12 and X2 with "1", "X" and "2" as defined in <Section B, Para 2.1>.
- 2.11. "Outright" or "Place" betting is where it is possible to choose from a list of alternatives and bet on the eventuality that a participant wins or places within a specified position in the classification of the listed event/competition. Should two or more participants share finishing positions, the settlement will based as per the definition in <Section B, Para 5.14>.
- 2.12. An “Each Way” or “EW” refers to a bet where the chosen selection must either Win or else Place within the payout terms. The bet is divided in two parts (the “Win” part and the “Place” part) of an equal Stake. Settlement of such bets will take into account the applicable rules governing the "Win" and "Place" bets, namely the Sport-specific rules as well as <Section B, Para 5, Clause 11>.
- 2.13. "Goal minutes" is where it is possible to bet on the sum of the minutes when the goals have been scored. When settling such bets, goals scored in injury time of both halves are to be considered as having been scored in the 45th minute in case the goal was scored in the first half injury time and the 90th minute in case the goal was scored in the second half injury time. Own goals will not count towards the settlement of individual player’s ‘goal minutes'.

Bets will be settled as void should it still be impossible to determine a winning outcome.
3.28. While all necessary precaution has been taken by [Sunbet] to ensure a superior user experience, it is to be understood that markets might fluctuate in such a way that at any given point in time these do not present an enhanced value comparable to related bet offers currently present on site.
3.29. For selected events, and without prejudice to <Section A, Para 5, Clause 4>, Sunbet will allow users to place bets combining outcomes and occurrences from the same event (aka intra-event combinations), either through pre-established combinations present in its Sportsbook or through the BetBuilder functionality. Unless otherwise stated, either in conjunction with the bet offer or in the Sport-specific rules, settlement will be based as per the rules governing the particular sport the bet refers to. All listed occurrences must be fully accomplished for the bet to be considered as winning and any ties will be considered as a LOST outcome, unless otherwise stated within the offer (Example: A bet on Team X to win and have more than 8 corners will be considered as LOST should the listed team win and have exactly 8 corners). Should any part of an intra-event combination be settled as “VOID” in accordance with the respective Sport-Specific rules (Example: the intra-event combination included a bet on Player X to score but the listed player did not start the match when the Sport-Specific rules required them to), the related selections emanating from the same event will also be settled with odds 1.00. In cases of abandoned events, all pending bets will be settled as void with the exception of those the outcome of which has already been decided and no further play could produce a different outcome.
3.30. “Teaser+” allows the user the possibility to allocate the same pre-set amount of points to all outcomes present in a parlay (combination) containing Spreads (Handicaps), Totals (Over/Unders) or a combination of both. Example: User combines NFL Team X +6.5 points in a parlay with Over 41 points in the NFL match between Team Y and Team Z. By choosing the “Teaser+ Football 6 points” option, the lines and odds get recalculated into a parlay featuring Team X +12.5 points (previously +6.5), combined with Over 35 points (previously Over 41). Should any part of a “Teaser+” bet be settled as void (push), that particular selection will be excluded from the parlay and the computation of odds/payout will be re-adjusted accordingly.
3.31. Bets referring to “Rest of the match” or similar will consider only outcomes and occurrences obtained from the time of bet placement until the end of the listed timeframe, thus disregarding any occurrences registered before the time the bet was placed and accepted.
3.32. Bets on specific timeframes/intervals (example: Match result between 60:00-89:59), will consider only outcomes and occurrences accumulated during the specified timeframe/interval. Settlement will not take into account any other points/goals/events tallied from other parts of the event/match outside the specified timeframe/interval, including stoppage/injury time, unless specified.

All selected matches/offers in an accumulator must be included in the coupon and no other multiple options (For example: singles, doubles, etc.) which exclude 1 or more matches/offers are available.

5. Result Settlement
5.1. When settling results Sunbet will use its reasonable commercial endeavours to source information obtained first hand (during or exactly after the event has been concluded), through TV transmissions, streaming (web-based and through other sources) as well as official sites.

Such measures must be announced by the governing association before the last scheduled round/stage will be considered. Any changes effected after this date, or else referring to bets which have already been settled based on events happening during the event/competition will not be considered.
5.3. Occurrences which have not been sanctioned and/or acknowledged by the match/event officials (For example, disallowed goals) will not be taken into account towards the settlement of the bet. As a general rule, and unless the offer specifies otherwise, Sunbet will settle offers based on the exact time that the flow of play was interrupted/resumed (as applicable) by the occurrence in question (For example, ball went out of play for a throw-in/goal kick or crosses the line for a goal). Bets referring to the accumulation of a particular occurrence (For example, Total corners) and/or the execution of a particular action, will require said occurrence to actually take place during the time interval specified (For example, the corner being kicked). In such instances, should the occurrence be only awarded and not taken, it will not be considered for settlement purposes.
5.4. All bet offers related to matches/events which do not take place at all or are awarded a result through a walk-over decision will be declared void.

In case an event which has not started yet, is moved more than a full 3 days, or else, the event has started and an official result cannot be declared before 12 hours have passed, the bets will be declared void.

5.7. Any event which does not start within 12 hours from the kick-off time as last issued by the governing association will be declared void. This includes cases like matches which are postponed due to bad weather, crowd trouble or similar scenarios. Exception to this are cases of events whose starting times had not been officially defined yet by the governing association at time of bet placement, or those which are moved due to scheduling conflicts/tv broadcasts but are to be played within the same matchday (where applicable). In such cases bets will remain valid granted that the listed event is the next official commitment from that particular tournament/league/competition scheduled for all participants in the offer.
5.8. In cases of events which have not been completed before their natural conclusion, and a result is issued through a decision by the association not more than 12 hours from the event’s start, Sunbet will use the issued decision as the official result for offers related to the event's outcome, such as Match, Draw No Bet and Double Chance granted that the issued decision does not change the outcome of the said bet offers at the time of the abandonment. In that case the stakes will be refunded. All offers referring to the tallying of particular occurrences (example: Total Goals, Handicaps, etc) will be declared void except for those the outcomes of which have been decided prior to the abandonment and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, which will be settled according to the decided outcome.
5.9. All bet offers related to uncompleted matches/events where the official governing body is not previously acknowledged (For example, Club Friendlies) will be declared as void unless at least 90% of the stipulated Regular/Full time is played, see in <Section B, Para 1.1>. Should the match/event be abandoned after 90% has been completed, the settlement will be based on the current score at the time when the match/event was stopped.
5.10. Settlement of bet offers, such as, but not limited to, shots, shots on target, ball possession, assists, rebounds, etc. will be based according to the definition with which the official governing body issues said statistics. Unless backed by un-contradictory evidence, you acknowledge and agree that Sunbet will not acknowledge any complaints which derive from a personal interpretation of such terms.
5.11. When placing "Outright" or "Place" bets, no Stakes will be refunded on participants/outcomes that are not participating or withdrawing from an event (both prior and during), unless otherwise stated.

5.12. No refunds of bets will apply, even if the winning outcome of a match/event is a participant/outcome that has not been listed for betting purposes. On all bet offers you have the possibility to ask for a price on a non-listed participant/outcome. Sunbet reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to decline such requests.
5.13. In case a participant is disqualified/withheld/banned from taking part in a subsequent part/phase of an event/competition, the disqualification will be considered to have taken place at the time of the participant’s removal from the event. No alterations will be made to previous results, regardless of any modifications due to said actions.
5.14. If two or more Participants share the applicable finishing positions and no odds have been offered for a drawn outcome, the payout will be calculated by dividing the Stake by the number of participants sharing those certain positions and are settled accordingly. The payout will always be at least equal to the Stake, except in cases of “Head to Heads”, see <Section B, Para 2.5> and <Section B, Para 5.19>
5.15. In “Group Betting” or “ “Best of X”:
5.15.1. all listed participants must start the event for bets to stand; and
5.15.2. at least one participant from the selection list must successfully complete the event for bets to stand. Should that not be the case, and the governing association does not follow specific tie-breaking criteria, the bets will be declared void.
5.16. In a "Head to Head" between:
5.16.1. two or three participants, all listed participants must start the particular round/event which the bet refers to, for bets to be considered valid;
5.16.2. two participants, all bets will be refunded if both participants share the same position/score or are eliminated at the same stage of the competition, unless the governing association follows specific tie-breaking procedures, in which case, these will be deemed valid.
5.16.3. three participants and more than one winning outcome, the odds will be divided by the outcomes sharing the winning position, irrespective whether the net outcome is lower than your Stake.
5.17. If a "Head to Head" is offered between different rounds/stages, all participants must take part in the upcoming round/stage for bets to be valid.
5.18. Unless specifically stated, whenever the organising association deems it fit to include any necessary rounds, matches, or series of matches (e.g. Play-offs, Play-outs, Postseason) following the end of the so-called Regular Season in order to determine the classification, league winners, promotion/relegation, etc., [Sunbet] will take into account the results and outcomes deriving from these matches for settlement purposes of bets referring to the final league classification, promotion, relegation, etc. For example seasonal bets on the team winning the NHL will refer to the Stanley Cup Winners.
5.19. Offers which confront against each other the performances of two or more individuals/teams over a stipulated timeframe/competition will only be settled based on the result of the listed participants, disregarding all other participants in the same competition/event.
5.20. Unless specifically stated, all offers referring to a single player’s performance in a specific domestic league (such as Total Goals Scored by Player X in League Y) or "Head to Head" bet offers involving two players’ performances in domestic leagues, will not take into account those events happening during eventual Play-offs/Play-outs/Post-season or any other matches, or series of, which would happen after the so-called Regular Season.
5.21. Offers related to a total amount of occurrences/events scored/tallied by a particular team, either in a single team performance in a specific domestic league (such as Total Goals Scored by Team X), or "Head to Head" bet offers involving two teams’ performances in domestic leagues (For example, Most Penalty Minutes in League X - Team Y vs Team Z), or a cumulative league performance (For example, Team to receive Most Yellow Cards in League X) will not take into account those events happening during eventual Play-offs/Play-outs/Post-season or any other matches, or series of, which would happen after the so-called Regular Season, unless otherwise specified.
5.22. In a single player performance bet offer in a specific domestic league (such as Total Goals Scored by Player X in League Y) or "Head to Head" bet offers involving two players’ performances in domestic leagues, should any of the following occurrences happen to either of the participants in the selection list, the bets will be considered void: (i) does not take part in at least 50% of the stipulated matches (excluding eventual Play-offs/Play-outs/Post-season); (ii) does not take part in at least another match after the bet has been placed, (iii) totals the same amount as the other player.
5.23. In a single player performance bet offer in a specific event (such as Total Goals Scored by Player X in International Tournament) or "Head to Head" bet offers involving two players’ performances in specific events, should any of the following occurrences happen to either of the participants in the selection list, the bets will be considered void: (i) does not take part at all in the event (ii) does not take part in at least another match after the bet has been placed, (iii) totals the same amount as the other participant.
5.24. During specific events Sunbet may elect to offer for betting a reduced selection of participants and might also include betting options such as "any other", "the field", or similar. This option includes all unlisted participants except for the ones mentioned specifically as available.
5.25. Offers that make specific reference to a participant’s/participants’ performance in a particular event (For example Player X vs The Field) are to be considered void if the mentioned participant(s) do(es) not take part in the competition.
5.26. Any form of a qualification ahead of the main event is considered to be a valid part of that competition. Thus any participant who is eliminated at qualification stage will be considered losing to anyone that is pre-qualified or is successful in the qualification part.
5.27. Bet offers which originally require participant(s) to compete in two or more stages/legs to advance into a subsequent phase/round of a competition, will remain valid regardless of any postponement/movement of the actual match dates, given that said match(es) actually takes place within the frame of the competition.
5.28. A bet on a “To Qualify” market originally requiring just one stage/leg to advance to a subsequent phase/round of a competition (including any eventual prolongations/additional matches, e.g. replays) will be declared void if said match is not decided within more than 36 hours of its supposed start time.
5.29. Should an event be moved from its originally announced venue and/or have its playing surface changed, this will not be treated as a cause for the offers to be voided unless (i) the Sport-specific rules dictate such, and/or the new location in which the event takes place is the habitual "home" pitch of either participant involved in the match, except as dictated below. As a general principle, Sunbet will refer to the Home team (host) and the Away team (visitor) in accordance with the definition issued by the governing association for that particular match/competition. Bets on matches played on so-called "Neutral pitches" will remain valid regardless of whether such information has been detailed in the bet offer and/or the positioning of the teams on the betting board/display. In those cases where there is a discrepancy between the positioning of the teams/participants on the official website and their placement on the betting board/display, and such discrepancy causes a significant effect on the odds of the match/competition Sunbet will void the affected bets. Such eventuality is contemplated only in cases where the discrepancy has a material and visible effect on the odds. For example, in cases of swapped Home and Away teams in an Ice Hockey match Sunbet will void the bets. Nevertheless Sunbet will consider valid bets placed on events where the so-called home-field advantage is not considered and in cases of neutral venues. Examples of such cases include but are not limited to tennis tournaments, MMA fights, singles competitions in general, or specific events such as the final/late stages of team competitions being held in pre-established venues, like the Superbowl, the NCAA Final 4 or the Italian Football Cup Final even if the location can be deemed as a potential customary "home" pitch for either of the teams involved. In such cases, said events will be considered as being played in neutral venues and all bets stand regardless of the positioning of the teams/participants on the official website and their placement on the betting board/display.
5.30. Information referring to gender of the teams, age groups and youth teams, as well as various definitions of reserve teams (For example, B and C teams), is to be treated as supplementary information. The inclusion (or lack of) and correctness of such information will not be treated as sufficient cause for the voiding of the offers related to the match/event, given that this does not cause an obvious inconsistency in odds offered
5.31. While all necessary precautions are taken by Sunbet to assure the most faithful rendition of all components involved in a bet offer, it is to be assumed that certain denominations could be represented differently due to different interpretations deriving from adaptations into another language. Such linguistic incongruence will not be treated as sufficient cause for the voiding of the offers related to the match/event, given that it does not create uncertainty with other participants. The same applies for denominations referring to events, team names, sponsor names, etc.
5.32. In case of bets where there is reference to timeframes, the following interpretation should be applied: “within the first 30 minutes” will include anything happening until 0 hours 29 minutes and 59 seconds; “between 10 to 20 minutes” will include anything happening from 10 minutes and 0 seconds until 19 minutes and 59 seconds.
5.33. Unless listed either in conjunction with the bet offer, or else in the Sport Specific rules, bets referring to event/match duration which include non-full integer digits (For example 88.5 minutes or X.5 rounds) require the full completion of the full integer of the listed duration for them to be considered won. For example: a bet on Over/Under 88.5 minutes in a Tennis match will be settled as Over only if at least 89 full minutes are completed.
5.34. Sunbet acknowledges that some bets might require the rounding-up of percentages, units or other criteria which are decisive for the settlement of the bet. Should that be the case, Sunbet reserves the right to adjust and settle accordingly.
5.35. Any reference to goals scored by specific players will not count if they are defined as ‘own goals’ (scored in their own goals) unless otherwise stated.
5.36. Any reference to confederation, nationality or similar will be subject to the definition by the governing association.
5.37. Any medals won by a team/nation per competition will count as one (1) single medal regardless of the number of team members.
5.38. Offers related to a total amount of occurrences/events scored/tallied by a particular player, in a single team performance in a specific competition (such as Total Goals Scored by Player X for Team Y) will only take into account total amount of occurrences/events scored/tallied by the particular player while playing for that team in that particular competition. Should any of the following occurrences happen to the listed player, the bets will be considered void: (i) does not take part in at least 50% of the competition's stipulated matches (excluding eventual Play-offs/Play-outs/Post-season); (ii) does not take part in at least another match after the bet has been placed.
5.39. Offers on whether certain individuals will be occupying a specified position/title/job on a certain date (For example, Minister X to still be Minister on date Y, Player/Coach to still be with Team Y on Date Z) refer to the individual in question to hold (or alternatively to be appointed in) the listed position uninterruptedly between the time the bet is placed and the specified deadline. Should the individual for any reason whatsoever leave the position before the specified deadline, the outcome of the bet will be considered as not having happened. This is valid even in cases where the individual is re-appointed/signed again in that same position/title/job and even if on the specified deadline the individual is occupying once more that same position/title/job to which the bet refers to. Settlements will also take into account players signed on loan deals.
