6.4. "Handicap", "Over/Under" and "Odd/Even" bets require all scheduled innings to be completed, or at least 8.5 innings to be completed if the home team is in advantage, for bets to stand.

8. Beach Volleyball

a. All bets will remain valid as far as the match/offer is played within the tournament framework regardless of any changes in schedule, conditions, etc., unless other arrangements have been agreed.

b. “Match” bet offers are based on the general principle of tournament progress or tournament win, depending on which phase of the competition the match refers to. The team progressing to the next round or winning the tournament is to be considered the winner of the bet regardless of match duration, withdrawals, disqualifications, etc. These bets require at least one set to be completed for bets to stand.

c. “Over/Under” offers on unfinished matches/events the outcome of which is already determined before the interruption and/or any further continuance of play could not possibly produce a different outcome to said offers, will be settled based on the result achieved until the interruption. For the calculation of these settlements, the minimum amount of occurrences which should have been needed to bring the offer to the natural conclusion will be added as necessary depending on the number of sets which the match is scheduled for. Should this calculation produce a situation where no possible alterations could affect the outcome of the offer, this will be settled as such. See examples from the Tennis section for reference.

a. All offers will be settled according to the official result of the relevant governing body immediately as declared by the ring announcer at the end of the fight.

b. For settlement purposes, in case the match is interrupted for any reason in between rounds, e.g. retirement before the start of a round, disqualification, failure to answer the bell, the fight will be deemed to have finished at the end of the previous round.

c. Offers on fights declared as a "No Contest" or "Technical draw" will be settled as void, except for those offers the outcome of which has been decided prior to the decision and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, which will be settled according to the decided outcome.

d. If for any reason, the number of rounds in a fight is changed, offers which make specific reference to rounds, such as "Round betting", "Group of Rounds", "Over/Under", "Method of Victory" and “To go the distance” will be declared void.

e. For settlement purposes, betting on rounds or groups of rounds refers to a fighter to win by Knockout (“KO”), Technical Knockout (“TKO”), or disqualification during that round or group of rounds. If for any reason, a points decision is awarded before the full number of scheduled rounds is completed, or a boxer is disqualified, bets will be settled on the round in which the fight was stopped. Bets which nominate 'to win on points' will only be deemed winners if the full number of rounds is completed.

f. For a match to be declared as having been decided by "points", (For example, the different definition of "decision"), all scheduled rounds must be completed. All other decisions (For example, KO, TKO, withdrawal, submission, disqualification, failure to answer the bell, clash of heads, low blow, etc.) will be settled as if the boxer has won the fight without the need of a decision, aka "before the bell".

g. Bets referring to round/fight duration represents the actual time passed in the round/fight, as applicable, depending on the scheduled round/fight duration.

10. Cricket

10.1.  General Cricket Rules

 

10.1.1. In cases where no odds have been offered for a tie and the match/offer ends in a tie, bets would be settled according to the so-called “dead-heat” rule where the payout would be calculated after the odds are divided and multiplied by the Stake, irrespective whether the net payout is lower than your Stake. Should such provision be in place it would be listed in conjunction with the bet offer. In competitions where other means are used to determine a winner after a tie (‘Bowl out’ or ‘Super over’) then offers will be settled based on the result after such prolongations are completed.

10.1.2. “Highest Opening Partnership” requires that both sides complete their opening partnerships with the exception of those situations where an outcome has already been determined.

10.1.3. “Batting” Head to Heads require that both players be at the batting crease while a ball is bowled, though not necessarily facing a ball.

In cases where a batsman's innings is ended by weather or bad light, all bets where a result has not been determined will be declared void. A result is deemed to have been determined if a Batsman has passed the Run total at which the bet was accepted, has been dismissed or an innings is declared. For example, if a Batsman's score stands at 50 ‘Not-Out’ when a game or innings is terminated due to bad light or rain, all bets on 50.5 Runs will be voided. However, all bets on “Over 49.5 Runs” will be considered as winning while bets on “Under 49.5 Runs” will be settled as losing. Should a batsman retire due to injury, his score at the end of his team's innings will be considered as the result for that bet.

10.1.6. In “Fall of Next Wicket” betting should either batsman retire due to injury before a result has been determined all bets will be declared void. A result is deemed to have been determined if the Innings total has passed the Run total at which the bet was accepted. If a team declares or reaches their target, the total achieved by the batting team will be the result of the market. If a partnership is disrupted due to weather all bets will stand, unless there is no further play in the match. In such case all bets where a result has not been determined will be declared void.

10.1.7. For “Next Over” betting (Over/Under & Odd/Even), extras are included for settlement purposes. Bets will be void if the Over is not completed unless a result has already been determined. Market refers only to the listed Over (For example, “5th Over” refers to Over number 5, i.e. the Over directly following Over Number 4).

10.1.8. In “Race to X Runs” both players must open the batting for bets to stand.

10.1.9. For “First Over” Runs the Over must be completed for bets to stand, unless the maximum range offered has already been achieved. Any Extras count for settlement purposes.

10.1.11. In “Wicket 1st Over” betting the Over must be completed for bets to stand, unless a wicket has already fallen.

10.1.12. In “Next Man Out” betting bets will be settled as void if either player retires due to injury before the wicket falls or there is no further wickets. Both named Batsmen must be batting at the fall of the nominated wicket for bets to stand.

10.1.13. For “Method of Dismissal” betting bets will be void if either player retires due to injury before the wicket falls or there is no further wickets. ‘Any Other’ includes hit wicket, handled ball, obstructing the field, timed out or hit the ball twice.

10.1.14. For Odd/Even betting a ball must be bowled for bets to stand.

10.1.15. "Top Batsman" and "Top Bowler" bets placed on any player not in the starting 11 will be declared void. Bets on players who are selected but do not bat or field will be settled as losers.

10.1.16. Settlement of betting on "Wides" will be based on the "Runs" scored from "Wides" and not the number of "Wides" bowled.

10.2.1. Should a match be transferred to a ‘reserve’ day, all bets will remain valid.

In the event of a tie, dead heat rules as explained in Clause 1 of the General Cricket Rules might apply unless a subsequent tiebreaker method is used to determine the winner (For example,. super over, bowl-off), in which case the outcome will be settled on the result of this method. Should the match be declared a 'no-result' all bets are void. Any other betting on the match (For example, High Bats, Most Sixes, Batting & Bowling Head to Heads etc.) will not include any outcomes deriving after the dispute of the tiebreaker.

  • One yellow and a red = 3
  • Two yellow cards and a red = 3

The maximum cards for one player is 3 cards. Only cards shown to players currently eligible as per C.14.5 will be taken into consideration.

14.14. Bets on whether a particular player(s) will manage to score from certain areas of the pitch (E.g. from outside the 'penalty box') will be settled based on the position of the ball at the time the shot was struck by the player, irrelevant of any further deflections which the ball trajectory might incur following the initial shot. For the sake of clarity it is to be understood that the lines delineating the 'penalty box' are to be considered as an integral part of such area of the pitch. Thus, should a shot be struck with the ball hovering above, or touching, even partially, said lines, the shot will not be considered as having been effected from outside the box.

14.15. Bets on whether a particular player(s) will manage to hit the cross bar, goal post or any other part of the frame delineating the goal area will only be settled as having accomplished such feat if the shot does not result directly in a goal being awarded exactly after the ball hits a part of the goal frame. Settlement will only take into consideration shots aimed at the goal frame defended by the opponents of the listed player(s) team. Should a player have a shot which hits the post their team defends this will not be considered as having accomplished such feat.

14.16. During certain events Sunbet may wish to offer for betting a reduced selection of participants (For example, “Any unlisted Team X player”) or else a single participant as a representation of the whole squad (For example, “Any Team X player”). In both cases for settlement purposes, all unlisted squad members are to be deemed as starters (and settled as such), including substitutes regardless whether they take part in the match or not.

14.17. Bets on the performance of players starting the match on the bench will be settled as void if the player is either listed in the starting XI or does not take part in the match at all.

14.18. On offers such as Next Goalscorer, Next Carded player, Next Assist and Man of the Match, Stakes will be refunded should the chosen player not take part in the match at all. Results for this offer will include any outcomes obtained during eventual Extra Time but not during Penalty Shoot-outs.

14.19. Bets on “Next Assist” for a particular goal will be settled as void should the governing association declare the specified goal as having been unassisted, the specified goal is an own goal and/or no more goals are scored in the match. Results for this offer will include any goals scored during eventual Extra Time but not during Penalty Shoot-outs.

14.20. Bets referring to penalty kicks conversion and/or outcome will be settled according to the outcome occurred on the field of play as per the rules governing that specific scenario and in cases of penalty shoot-outs will remain valid regardless of the format employed by the governing association during the shoot-out. Bets stand in case the penalty is ordered to be re-taken and will be settled with the outcome achieved from the re-taken penalty.

As a general principle, settlement will be based on the concept that unless the penalty kick results in a goal being awarded (and settled accordingly), the first person/object/location (as applicable) which the ball initially touches after being kicked will be considered as the winning outcome, disregarding any other persons/objects the ball hits in its subsequent trajectory following any previous deflection, if any. The following examples are being issued as a general guideline on settlement:

"Goal" would be the winning outcome in case of the following scored penalties scenarios:

  • Any penalty kick which ends up as a goal without it being deflected;
  • Goalkeeper touches the penalty kick but ball ends up as goal;
  • Penalty kick touches the woodwork before ending up in goal.

"Save" would be the winning outcome in case of the following missed penalties scenarios:

  • Goalkeeper deflects the penalty kick to outside the goal frame;
  • Goalkeeper deflects the penalty kick onto the post/crossbar.

"Woodwork" would be the winning outcome in case of the following missed penalties scenarios:

14.20.1. Penalty kick hits the woodwork before it is touched/saved by the goalkeeper;

14.20.2. Penalty kick hits the woodwork and ball goes outside the goal frame.

"Any other Miss" would be the winning outcome in case of any penalty kick which without any deflection either by the goalkeeper or by the woodwork ends up outside the goal frame:

Exception to the above scenarios would be in in case of penalty shoot-outs, should the ball hit the woodwork, bounce on the goalkeeper and end in goal, such penalty will be considered as having been scored while should said situation occur during any other part of the match which is not a penalty shoot-out, the penalty taker would be considered as having missed to score and "hitting the woodwork" will be considered as the winning outcome.

14.21. Any decision taken by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) which conflicts with the original decision sanctioned by the officials on the pitch (including non-decisions like allowing play to continue before reviewing the video), thus altering the understood state of the match at the time of bet placement, will result in all bets placed in the timeframe between the actual occurrence of the original incident and the referee's final decision on the incident being deemed as void, unless the odds offered on the specific bet offer are unaffected by the use of VAR or have already been accounted for in the odds offered at the time of bet acceptance. Settlement on all other unrelated bet-offers, including those determined by any play between the time of the original incident and the decision following the VAR review, which are not influenced/altered by the VAR decision will stand.

For resulting purposes VAR reviews are to be considered as having happened at the time of the original incident for which the VAR would be eventually used even if play has not been immediately interrupted. Sunbet reserves the right, in accordance with <Section A, Para 6.2>, to reverse any previously settled offers where the settlement becomes inaccurate following the final referee decision, providing said decision is taken and communicated before the conclusion of the match and/or timeframe listed.

In order to avoid any doubts, Sunbet will consider the VAR as having been used if it is understood from the referee's gestures (For example, hand gestures, stopping the match to review the incident themselves), and/or the VAR usage is confirmed by the match report issued by the official organization. In cases where it is unclear whether the VAR has been used due to missing TV coverage and/or conflicting reports, Sunbet will settle the bets based on the information acquired from feed providers and generally reputable online sources on the basis of equity.

14.22. For settlement purposes, markets referring to team to be shown the next Card (booking) and/or “Total Cards” will always consider a Red Card as 2 instances of a card being shown and will be settled accordingly. The following examples are being listed as a guideline:

  • First card shown in a match is a straight Red Card. The team to which the card is awarded will be settled as the winning selection for the offers: Cards #1 and #2;
  • First card shown in a match is a Yellow Card followed by a straight Red Card to the same player without a second yellow card being shown. The team to which the cards are awarded will be settled as the winning selection for the offers: Cards #1, #2 and #3;
  • First card shown in a match is a Yellow Card followed by a second Yellow Card with the subsequent Red Card to the same player. The team to which the cards are awarded will be settled as the winning selection for the offers: Cards #1, #2 and #3.

14.23. Markets referring to which specific player will be the next to be booked/receive a card are to be understood and settled as per the order of the instance in which each single player gets booked/sent off by the referee. The card colour shown by the referee will not be given any consideration in the settlement of this offer and the decisive criteria will always be the order in which the single player is considered to have gone into the referee’s book. For settlement purposes it is possible for a single player to be listed twice as the “Next Carded player” as much as both bookings occur during different interruptions of play. Should 2 or more players be booked during the same interruption of play, bets on this offer will be settled as void.

14.24. Any reference to “Free Kicks” both when presented as a single outcome, as well as an occurrence will also take into consideration instances awarded for offsides and any other violation except those sanctioned with a penalty.

15.10. Settlement of "Head to Head" bet offers involving the performance of 2 or more players (e.g. Best Finishing Position in the tournament) will be based upon the best finishing position/lowest score (as applicable) achieved in the relative event/round which the bet refers to.

15.11. Any reference to Make/Miss the "Cut" requires an official cut/exclusion effected by the organisers for bets to stand. In the case of tournaments where players are eliminated during more than one phase, settlement will be based on a whether the player has qualified or not following the first "Cut" made.

15.12. Disqualification/withdrawals by a player before the "Cut" is made, will result in the player being considered as having missed the "Cut". Disqualification/withdrawals subsequent to the "Cut" being made will be irrelevant towards the original settlement of the "Make the Cut" offers.

15.13. In "Head to Heads" based on the best finishing position in the tournament, in case one player misses the cut then the other player will be settled as the winner. If both participants fail to make the "Cut" the player with the lowest score at the "Cut" will be considered as the winner. Should both players fail to make the "Cut" with the same score then the bet will be void. A player disqualified after the "Cut" has been made is deemed to have beaten a player who has failed to make the "Cut".

15.14. Any reference to "Majors" will be based on the tournaments for that particular season to which the PGA attributes said definition, irrespective of any venue, date, or any other changes.

30. Winter Sports

30.1. This section is valid for the following sports: Alpine Skiing, Biathlon, Cross Country Skiing, Freestyle, Nordic Combined, Short Track, Ski Jumping, Snowboarding & Speed Skating.

30.2. Results from a competition will be deemed valid if it is declared as a valid competition for the relevant category, by the governing association for that sport. This applies in case of an event being shortened, such as only consisting of one run/jump instead of two, or an event being moved to another venue.

30.3. In cases of abandoned/uncompleted events, all those offers the outcome of which is already determined before the interruption of play and any further continuation of play could not possibly produce a different outcome are deemed valid and will be settled accordingly.

30.4. All offers will be settled as void if the original/stated format of an event is completely changed, like the size of hill in Ski Jumping, style in Course Country Skiing, etc.

30.5. Sunbet reserves the right to apply Tattersalls Rule 4 in case of a non-starter in a “Group Betting” (“Best of X”) offer.

30.6. Offers related to specific Winter Sports events (excluding for example bets referring to Overall classifications, Olympic, World and Continental competitions), are offered with the explicit assumption that the particular event will be the next event held in that particular sports/discipline. Should the specific event be moved for any reason whatsoever and an exactly similar event  for that sports/discipline is held in the same location starting in not more than 72 hours, the bets will be valid for the next scheduled event in that sports/discipline. Thus, if for example two separate races from the same sports/discipline are scheduled for Friday and Saturday and the Friday competition is moved to Saturday or Sunday, the bets on the Friday competition will be settled in accordance with the next scheduled event, in this case Saturday's events. In cases where just 1 event is scheduled in that sports/discipline and the starting time is moved less than 72 hours, bets will remain valid and will be settled accordingly. Should no event with the same connotations be held in the 72 hour period after the initially scheduled time, bets will be settled as void.

30.7. In a "Head to Head" between two or three participants, at least one of the listed participants must complete the final run/stage/jump which the bet refers to, for bets to be considered valid.

The conditions stated in this section refer to all offers which would not be reasonably classified under the different sports categories (For example, TV Programs, Politics, Awards & Prizes, Beauty Contests, Entertainment and similar).

31.2. Unless otherwise specified below or in conjunction with the bet offer, all bets which fall under this section are valid until a result is officially declared regardless of any delays in the announcement, extra voting rounds, etc. which would be needed for the outcome to be announced.

31.3. All open offers involving participants who withdraw/have been evicted from TV shows (either departing voluntarily or following an organiser’s decision), will be settled as lost. Should the same participant re-enter the same competition at a later date, he/she will be treated as a new contestant thus previous bets will be settled as lost.

31.4. Bets referring to the removal of a participant are only valid for the next scheduled show. Any changes to the methods of eviction, amount and/or line-up of participants eliminated during the same program, or any other factors which were not reasonably expected will result in the bets referring to "Next eviction" or "Next Elimination" to be voided.

31.5. In the event of the show terminating before an official winner is declared, bets will be settled as a tie (i.e. dead heat) between the contestants who have not been eliminated. Win/Place bets on contestants who have been already eliminated will be settled as lost.
