Betting Rules

Soccer

90 Minutes Play
All match markets are based on the result at the end of a scheduled 90 minutes play unless otherwise stated. This includes any added injury or stoppage time but does not include extra time, time allocated for a penalty shoot-out or golden goal. In the event of extra time, a new market may be created.
The only exception to this rule is in relation to Friendly matches, where all match markets will be settled based on the actual result when the game finishes (excluding any extra time), irrespective of whether the full 90 minutes is played.

Full Time Result
Full Time Result is based on the result of a scheduled match and will include any added injury or stoppage time but does not include extra time, time allocated for a penalty shoot-out or golden goal. In the event of extra time, a new market may be created.
The only exception to this rule is in relation to Friendly matches, where all match markets will be settled based on the actual result when the game finishes (excluding any extra time), irrespective of whether the full match is played.

Matches Postponed, Brought Forward or Abandoned
An un-played or postponed match shall become void, unless it is played within 24 hours from the advertised date and time.

Should any match be played prior to the date or kick-off time denoted then any such match may be included provided the wager is placed not later than the revised kick-off time.

Any match abandoned before the completion of 90 minutes play will be void (unless the match is rearranged and played or an official result declared within 24 hours) except for those bets the outcome of which has already been determined at the time of abandonment. For example, first player to score or time of the first goal bets will stand provided a goal has been scored at the time of abandonment.

The only exception to the above abandoned match rule, is for all South American club matches where Full Time Result and Double Chance markets (both pre-game and in-play) will be settled on the score at the time of the abandonment providing the relevant league allows the result to stand.

Matches not Played as Listed
If a match venue is changed then bets already placed will stand providing the home team is still designated as such. If the home and away team for a listed match are reversed then bets placed based on the original listing will be void.

Settlement of Wagers
Where applicable, statistics provided by the Press Association (PA) will be used to settle wagers, unless there is indisputable evidence that the PA statistics are incorrect. Where PA stats are not provided, we will use independent evidence to support bet settlement. If there is conflicting independent evidence, we will settle on the majority independent view. When this is not clear, where applicable the official league website will take priority.

In the absence of any independent evidence bets will be settled based on our own statistics.

First/Last Player to Score
Bets are accepted on 90 minutes play only.

Every effort will be made to quote first/last player to score odds for all possible participants. However, players not originally quoted will count as winners should they score the first/last goal.

Team First/last Goalscorer
Bets on players not taking part in the match will be void. Bets where the selection comes on after the first goal is scored for that team will be void regardless of whether the selected player scores in the game. Own goals do not count.

In-play Next Goalscorer
Every effort will be made to quote Next Goalscorer to Score odds for all possible participants. However, players not originally quoted will count as winners should they score the Next goal. Bets on players not taking part in the match will be void as will bets on 'first player to score' where the selection comes on after the first goal is scored. All players that have been on the field of play before the next goal is scored will be deemed runners.

Subsequent enquiries by official bodies will not be considered for settlement purposes.

Own goals do not count.

In-play Who wins the rest of the match
This market refers to which team will score more goals in the remaining time. For example, If Man United is playing Liverpool and are 3-0 up at the 68th minute, this market will apply to who scores the most goals after the 68th minute regarless of what the score was at the the 68th minute, so in this case should the final score remain 3-0, the wining result would be a draw.


Player to Score at any Time
All players who take part in a match will be considered 'runners'.

Any selections taken from a match that is not completed will be treated as a Non-Runner.

Please note that own goals do not count in the settlement of bets.

Goalscorer Match Bet
Both players must start the match for bets to stand.

Time of the First Goal
If a match is abandoned after the first goal is scored then all bets stand.

If a match is abandoned before the first goal is scored then all bets accepted for time bands that have been completed will be considered losing bets and any other time band which included the time band of the abandonment will be void and treated as Non-Runners.

Top Goalscorer
Only goals scored within the quoted division are counted for this market irrespective of the team (within that division) for which they are scored. The team quoted alongside the player is for reference only. Only league goals count - excluding play-off matches. Own goals do not count. Dead-Heat rules apply.

Season Match Bets/Team Points Totals
If any team does not complete all its fixtures then all match bets and team points total bets involving that team will be made void - win or lose.

Soccer 6
By electing to place a Soccer 6 Tote Bet with World Sports Betting you acknowledge that World Sports Betting is not a Tote nor do we purport to be a Tote.
You also agree to be bound by our terms and conditions, which may from time to time change, and you accept that it is your responsibility to keep yourself acquainted with our limits, "terms and conditions" as well as our "rules".
World Sports Betting base their Soccer 6 dividends and payouts on the official dividend declared by Saftote and do not consider dividends declared by any other division or Totalisator in the Republic of South Africa. World Sports Betting however reserve the right to utilise other dividends where we deem that the Totalisator pools are of significant size to produce stable and market related returns or odds.
In addition to the above limits World Sports Betting reserves the right to limit a dividend / return on a payout to the extent that the total payout does not exceed the "Nett Tote Pool" or in other words the Gross Tote pool less the Totalisator deductions.

How To Play Soccer 6
To win, you must predict the results of the six matches in a Soccer 6 pool. In each match, one team is designated Team A and the other Team B.

There are three results to choose from in each match:
* Team A to win
* Draw
* Team B to win

1 = Win by Team A; 2 = Draw; 3 = Win by Team B. So when you bet, use Nos 1, 2 and 3 to denote your choices. The same numbers are used to display results. M1 is used to denote Match 1, M2 for Match 2 and so on.

With Soccer 6, you can play a single or multiple entry i.e. more than one choice. With a single entry, you select ONE option or choice for each match and the bet costs only R1.00

With a multiple entry, you can choose more than one option in one or more matches. The cost is R1.00 per combination.
Remember, because our bet is a R1.00 bet and not a R6.00, so too is the dividend dived by 6 upon payout.
To calculate the number of combinations, multiply out the total number of options or choices for each match.

EXAMPLES

ONE: You choose all three options in M1 (Match 1), two options in M2 and one in each of M3, M4, M5 and M6. That’s 3x2x1x1x1x1= 6 = R6.00

TWO: You choose two options in each of the 6 matches. That’s 2x2x2x2x2x2 = 64 x 1 = R64

Remember, the result of a match is the score at the end of the normal 90-minute playing period plus any injury time that may be played. Extra time and penalty shootouts are of no account.


Soccer Bundles
Should one or more legs listed in a WSB Bet Bundle be scratched, cancelled, voided, interrupted or postponed and not continued or replayed within 24 hours from the advertised date and time, all bets for that particular bundle selection will be voided regardless of the outcome of the remaining legs.
Should any of the selections listed in the bet bundle lose or draw/tie, the bet bundle will be considered a losing bet, unless the option for that particular selection or entire bundle was listed as that outcome.
