Event markets
All bets are settled on the official results/rankings of the International Ski Federation (FIS), the International Skating Union (ISU), the International Biathlon Union (IBU), the Official Olympic Committee or any official body deemed to have such authority for competitions. Subsequent disqualifications and/or appeals will not affect bets.

If the conditions of a specific event are changed from those originally listed by the Official Governing Body then bets will be void. e.g. shorter course distances/fewer rounds or order of events, with the exception of individual ski-jumping events, where results will stand for markets providing one round is completed in full (excluding Winning Margin - see below rule).

If a specific event (determined as: after a final competitor list is known) is suspended or postponed bets remain valid provided that the event is completed on the same run/same venue within 36 hours. If the event takes place on a different run/venue bets will be made void and stakes returned.

Participants must pass starting line/gate for bets to stand otherwise bets will be void and stakes returned. In the case of a competitor withdrawing/being disqualified prior to the specific event a Deduction rule may be applied to bets. Bets on any participant who takes part in qualifying for a specified event but then fails to qualify for the main Round(s) will be classed as losers.

For settlement purposes the result is at the time of the podium presentation. Subsequent disqualifications and/or appeals will not affect bets.

Group betting
If one or more participants fail to take part in a specified event then bets will be void. Dead-Heat rules apply.

Winning margin
Bets will be settled on the winning intervals/ranges listed by an events’ Official Governing Body. If the conditions of a specific event are changed from those originally listed by the Official Governing Body then bets will be void, e.g. shorter course distances/fewer rounds or jumps/order of events.

Shooting performance
For shooting performance (including head to heads) if a biathlete starts but fails to finish a race then bets will be void except for those bets the outcome of which has already been determined at the time the athlete fails to finish.

Qualification markets
Where markets are offered (including match betting) specifically relating to qualifying stages/rounds the results of the Official governing bodies are used. Qualification rankings are dependent on times/distances and/or points (FIS) where appropriate. (In the event of two participants getting the same time the winner will be deemed the participant with the least FIS points). Where FIS points are not applicable participants with the same time/distance will be settled as a push.

Ante-Post/future markets
All Ante-Post markets (determined as: prior to confirmation of final competitor lists) will be all in run or not and will be settled on the official results at the end of the season/event.

Dead-Heat rules apply.

Match betting
Both participants must leave the start line/gate for bets to stand. If an event comprises of just one round then official results from that round will be used for settlement purposes. If a player is disqualified or withdraws after starting that round the other player will be deemed the winner.

If a player is disqualified or withdraws after starting either prior to the completion of the first round, or after both players have qualified for a further round, the other player is deemed the winner.

If a player is disqualified during a subsequent round, when the other player in the match bet has already not qualified for that round, the disqualified player is deemed the winner.

For multiple round events - if both participants fail to qualify for the next round then bets are void. If both participants qualify for the next round but neither completes the event then the winner will be deemed to be the participant with the fastest recorded time in the first round.

If the conditions of a specific event are changed from those originally listed by the Official Governing Body then bets will be void - e.g. shorter course distances/fewer rounds or jumps/order of events.
