Betting Rules

Tennis

In the event of any of the following circumstances all bets will stand:

- A change of schedule and/or day of match
- A change of venue
- A change from indoor court to outdoor court or vice versa

If there is a change of surface (from hard / clay / grass to a different type of surface) either before or during a match, all bets will be void, apart from those where the result has already been determined in accordance with our other Tennis Rules. Carpet is considered a form of hard court for the purposes of this rule.

In such circumstances, new markets may subsequently be formed. These will be based on the new surface and settled accordingly.

Outright betting/Quarter betting/Half betting
Non-Runner - no bet.

Markets may be subject to a Deduction Rule.

Match betting, including In-Play
In the event of a match starting but not being completed then all bets will be void unless after the start of the match a player is disqualified in which case the player/team progressing to the next round or being awarded the victory will be deemed the winner for settlement purposes.

Tournament match betting
Both players in a specified match-up must play 1 point in the tournament for bets to stand. If players progress to the same Round of the tournament bets will be void.

Set betting
Bets are void if the statutory number of sets is not completed, or changed.

Race to 3 games
Either player must win 3 games for bets to stand.

First set winner
In the event of the first set not being completed bets will be void.

Tie-break in first set
In the event of the first set not being completed bets will be void, unless the score has reached 6-6 in which case the market will be settled as ‘Yes’.

Tie-break in match
In the event of the match starting but not being completed all bets are void unless a tie-break has already occurred, or it is impossible for a tie-break to occur e.g. during the final set of a Grand Slam.

Super Tie Break

10-point match tiebreakers are sometimes used in lieu of a final set when a match becomes tied at one set all or, in the case of a best-of-five-sets match, two sets all. Specific rules must be followed, and the player or doubles team who wins the super tiebreaker wins the match.

Double result
Prices may be offered on a named player to Win or Lose the 1st set and then go on to Win or Lose the match. In the event of match starting but not being completed all bets are void.

In-play Who wins the rest of the match
This market refers to which team will score more points in the remaining time. 

Number of sets
In the event of a disqualification or retirement all bets will be void unless the final set has begun or the settlement of the bet has already been determined. Markets based on Total Games / Handicap Games, including In-Play
These general rules apply to Games in individual sets, Games in match, Player Games, and Handicap Betting.

For the purposes of all such markets a tie-break is counted as one game.

In the event of retirement, disqualification or change of surface mid-match, bets will be void unless there is no conceivable way the set and/or match could be played to its natural conclusion without unconditionally determining the result of that market.

e.g. (1) A set is abandoned at 4-4: bets on Over/Under 9.5 games or fewer in the set are settled as winners/losers respectively, since any natural conclusion to the set would have at least 10 games; bets on Over/Under 10.5 games or more are void.

e.g. (2) A best-of-3 sets match is abandoned at 6-4 2-6: bets on Over/Under 23.5 games or fewer in match will be settled as winners/losers respectively, since any natural conclusion to the match would have at least 24 games; bets on Over/Under 24.5 games or more are void.

e.g. (3) A best-of-3 sets match is abandoned at 6-4 4-6 5-5: bets on either player with a handicap of +2.5 or more will be settled as winners, bets on either player with a handicap of -2.5 or less will be settled as losers, and bets on the tie with a handicap of +/- 3 or more will be settled as losers. All bets on handicaps ranging from -2 to +2 will be void.

The Handicap, Total Games In Match and Player Games markets are based on a statutory number of sets (see related set betting). In the event of the statutory number of sets being changed or differing from those offered for betting purposes then all bets are void.

At the end of the match all of the games each individual player wins are totalled and the handicap applied to determine the handicap winner.

Nationality of winner
Nationality as displayed by the sports governing body. Bets stand irrespective of withdrawals.

Fastest serve tournament
Player must serve 1 ball for bets to stand. Bets will be settled on official tournament results.

Number of aces/double faults
In the event of a disqualification or retirement all bets will be void, unless settlement of the bet has already been determined. Bets settled from official tournament statistics.

How many sets will player drop during tournament
In the event of the player retiring from the match/not starting a match (forfeit) it will count as a loss of 2 sets for best-of-3 matches and 3 sets for best-of-5 matches.

Stage of elimination
Player must play 1 point in the tournament for bets to stand.
