Event Markets (including Outright/Podium/Winning Continent/Winning Nationality)

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, unless settlement of the bet(s) is already determined. E.g. altered official distance (note: for Cross-Country and Biathlon bets will be void if the official (listed) distance is changed, but will stand if the actual course distance is changed)/fewer rounds or order of events, with the exception of Ski Jumping events, where results will stand for markets providing one round is completed in full (including if the event/round is subject to a re-start, but excluding Winning Margin - see below rule). Specifically, for In-Play/Live Ski Jumping, if an event is abandoned during the 2nd round, meaning that 1st round results become the official event result; then any bets placed after the completion of the 1st round will be void.

Specifically, for Cross-Country Skiing, Tour de Ski and Ski Tour Canada Outright markets; settlement will be based on the official final ranking published by the governing body, irrespective of whether or not all scheduled events are held.

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 (with the exception of Winter Olympic events). If the event takes place on a different run/venue bets will be made void and stakes returned.

Participants must pass the 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 Rule 4 (Deductions) 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.

Specifically, for Nordic Combined betting, if the results of the provisional competition round are used for the start of the cross-country race, all event bets are void.

Round/Jump 1 Markets In-Play/Live - If an event is abandoned prior to the completion of Round 1 then bets will be void unless settlement of the bet(s) is already determined.

If an event re-starts during the 1st Round/Jump, all bets placed on markets offered InPlay/Live prior to the re-start will be void unless settlement of the bet(s) is already determined.

Group Betting

If one or more participants fail to take part in a specified event, then bets will be void. Deadheat rules apply.

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.

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.

Round 1 match betting (Run 1 or Jump 1) - both participants must leave the start line/gate for bets to stand. If an event is abandoned prior to completion of the 1st round, then bets will be void.

In-Play/Live Ski Jumping Overall match betting - if an event is abandoned during the 2nd round, meaning that 1st round results become the official event result; then any bets placed after the completion of the 1st round will be void.

For multiple round events, if both participants fail to qualify for the next round then settlement will be based on official 1st round/run standings.

If both participants fail to register a result in the official 1st round/run standings, either by failing to finish or is disqualified during the 1st round/run, then bets will be void. If both participants qualify for the next round but neither completes the event, then bets will be void. For Cross-Country sprint event match-ups the final official placing for the event will be used to determine settlement.

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 has deemed the winner, assuming that the player completes the respective round.

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. 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; with the exception of ski-jumping events, where results will stand for match betting providing one round is completed in full (including if the event/round is subject to a re-start).

Biathlon Time Match-Ups - Settlement will be based on course time only (not overall time including shooting penalties).

Cross Country Leg Match-Ups - Settlement will be based on the fastest specified leg time.

Settlement of Wagers

Statistics provided by the official score(s) provider or the official website of the relevant competition or fixture will be used to settle wagers. Where statistics from an official score(s) provider or official website are not available or there is significant evidence that the official score(s) provider or official website is incorrect, we will use independent evidence to support bet settlement.

In the absence of consistent, independent evidence or in the presence of significant conflicting evidence, bets will be settled based on our own statistics.
