1. Betting Rules


  2. 1. General Betting Rules
    The general betting rules set out below must be read in conjunction with the Terms and Conditions and the Sports Rules (found below).
    To the extent that there is any inconsistency between the Terms and Conditions, the Betting Rules, the Privacy Policy and any of the Sports Rules, the Terms and Conditions shall prevail.
    In these Betting Rules, 21Bet.co.uk is referred to as '21Bet', 'us', 'we' or 'our' and you are referred to as 'you' or 'your'.
    1. Placing bets
    • 1.1 We reserve the right to accept or refuse the whole or any part of any proposed bet.
    • 1.2 A bet shall be deemed to be void if the required stake is not transmitted in full before the event commences, unless (in our absolute discretion) we accept the bet subject to authorisation.
    • 1.3 Bets may not be cancelled or changed once the bet has been placed and acceptance of the bet has been confirmed by us, either in the form of a generated bet receipt or in the open or settled bets section of your account.
    • 1.4 It is your responsibility to ensure details of any bets that you place are correct.
    • 1.5 All prices are subject to variation and, save where the starting price has been selected by you, the price shall be fixed at the time a bet is placed.
    • 1.6 We cannot be held responsible for any typing, human or software error which leads to any errors or omissions in relation to any product or in respect of any publication on the Website of any prices or results other than those intended. We reserve the right to void any bets which have been accepted at an incorrect price or settle the bet at the correct price at the time the bet was placed.
    • 1.7 We are not responsible for the accuracy of any offers, prices or other information displayed on any third-party website including but not limited to price comparison or affiliate websites and we accept no liability in respect of any such errors.
    • 1.8 It is your responsibility to understand the betting and gaming terminology used on the Website and the mechanism of any bet types that you select. If you have any queries as to how certain bet types work, please contact Customer Support before placing any such bet. We cannot accept any responsibility if you place a bet which you do not fully understand.
    • 1.9 The use of a 'banker' selection or selections to circumvent online limits is not permitted.
    • 1.10 Where a number of multiple bets, involving identical or very similar selections, are received by different customers within a short timeframe, we reserve the right to void all such bets, even after the bets have been determined.
    2. Maximum winnings
    The maximum amount that can be won by one customer in one twenty-four hour period, regardless of the size of the stake or the number of bets placed, is £100,000 (or its equivalent amount in a currency accepted by us on the Website).
    3. Non runners / non-participants and void selections
    • 3.1 Save in respect of bets placed under ante post terms (see section 5 below), the stake placed on single bets will be returned in circumstances where the subject of the relevant bet has been entirely withdrawn from the relevant event prior to its commencement. In accumulative bets the stake will run on to the remaining selection(s) with a double becoming a single, a treble becoming a double and so on.
    • 3.1 Unless a specific reference is made in the individual section that covers the sport, all bets placed on abandoned or postponed events shall be treated as void. However, bets in markets that have already been resolved at the time of abandonment and which could not be altered regardless of future events (such as the identity of the first goal scorer) will be settled in accordance with its outcome.
    4. Dead heats
    In the event of a DEAD HEAT the stake money on a selection is divided by the number of runners or competitors involved in the dead heat. The full odds are then paid proportionately to the divided stake, with the remainder of the stake money being treated as a losing stake.
    5. Ante post betting (future events)
    • 5.1 Ante post bets are those placed at prices on:
      • Horse Racing prior to the final declaration stage
      • Sports events prior to the start of an event, with the exception of bets on a match, a single race event or an individual heat/stage
      • All special (non-sporting) events
    • 5.2 You agree that ante post bets are accepted on the understanding that you will lose your stake if your selection does not participate. No Tattersalls' Rule 4 deductions are made from winning bets except when a runner in a horse race is balloted out.
    • 5.3 Bets placed after the start of a sports event are not classified by us as ante post. Unless otherwise stated in the Sport Rules for a particular sport, the start of an event is defined as the first time at which any competitive action commences. Stakes will be refunded on competitors/teams who do not participate in the relevant event after the bet is placed, unless they have been eliminated by competition rules. A Tattersalls' Rule 4 deduction will be applied to winning bets placed after the competitor's/team's last competitive action and prior to the market being re-formed.
    • 5.4 Stakes will not be refunded on competitors/teams who start an event and then withdraw.
    • 5.5 In total tournament/series markets (e.g. winner of the golden boot), individuals named in the team squad will be deemed to have participated whether or not they have taken part in any competitive action.
    • 5.6 Ante post each way doubles, trebles etc. are settled win to win, place to place.
    • 5.7 Ante post bets are settled at the price and place terms applicable at the time of acceptance.
    • 5.8 Place only bets and forecast bets are not accepted at ante post odds. If taken in error, place only bets will be void. Forecast bets will be settled on the computer straight forecast.
    • 5.9 The terms of any bespoke bets placed following a written request from an individual customer will be clarified in our written response to the customer prior to the bet being placed.
    • 5.10 If a horse race is cancelled, rescheduled to run at another racecourse or run on a different surface (turf to all weather or vice versa) then ante post bets will be deemed to be void.
    • 5.11 If a horse race is re-scheduled to run at the same race course then all ante post bets will stand. However if the race reopens or reverts back to a previous forfeit or declaration stage then we will allow any *open ante post bets to be cancelled by mutual consent.
    An *open ante post bet is where the selection is a declared runner or quoted in the betting market at the time of postponement. Bets can only be voided by mutual consent prior to the final declaration stage.
    6. Related contingencies
    • 6.1 Accumulative/multiple bets are not accepted where the outcome of one part of the bet contributes to the outcome of another.
      For example: £10 double on Liverpool to win the FA Cup semi-final 3-0 and Liverpool to qualify for the final. The second part of the bet is wholly reliant on the successful outcome of the first stage of the double.
    • 6.2 If taken in error the stakes will be equally divided in respect of the contingent elements of the accumulative/multiple bet and shall be separated into individual bets. However, where the related parts of the bet are resolved at different times, unless 'special double' or 'special accumulative' odds are available, bets will be settled as instructed with the odds for the second or subsequent legs being determined at each individual stage.
    7. Sports governing bodies
    • 7.1 It is a condition of your use of the Betting Service that you represent that:
      • you are not prohibited from entering into the bet by any term of your contract of employment or any rule of a Sports Governing Body, which applies to you
      • you are not aware of any circumstance which would make the placing of the bet a breach of a rule on betting applied by a Sports Governing Body
      • where the bet is placed on the outcome of a race, competition or other event or on the likelihood of anything occurring, you do not know the outcome of the event or have not been involved in any circumstances which might affect its potential outcome
    • 7.2 If we become aware or suspect that any such representation by you is or may be false your stake will be forfeited and we shall not be obliged to pay any winnings which might otherwise have been payable in respect of the relevant placed bet.
    8. Data supplied by a third party
    Please be aware that any data (such as current scores or elapsed time) that is displayed on the Website or on our text screens is sourced from a 'live feed' provided by a third party and may be subject to time delay and/or be inaccurate. If you rely on this data to place bets, you do so entirely at your own risk and we accept no responsibility for any loss (direct or indirect) suffered by you as a result of your reliance on it.
    9. Rigging
    We reserve the right to withhold payment if we become aware or suspect that the prices of a particular event have been manipulated or where a race, event or match has been rigged. Pending the outcome of any investigation and, in our absolute discretion, we reserve the right to declare bets on any such race, event or match as void.
    10. Late bets
    • Bets may be placed up to the scheduled start time of the event or a pre-determined time, whichever is the earlier.
    • Any bet inadvertently accepted after the betting has closed or where the event was resolved or at a stage where the customer could have any indication of the outcome will be settled at the correct price at the time the bet was placed.
    • Bets placed after the final event result is known will be voided.
    • Should there be a dispute over the start time of an event/market where an official starting time is not given by that sports governing body, then the time that we determine the event to have started and the time at which the bet was placed according to our transactional logs (if recorded) will be conclusive evidence in the settlement or non-settlement of all bets in respect of that event/market.

  3. 2. Horse Racing Rules:
    • Non-Runners:

      If your selection becomes a non-runner:

      • Single Bet:
        If you have a non-runner, your bet is void and you receive your stake back. This does not apply if your bet was placed under Ante Post rules, in which case your bet will be settled as a loser.
      • Multiple Bets:
        If you've placed a multiple bet such as a double, treble or Lucky 15, your bet will stand on the remaining selections. So a double becomes a single, a treble becomes a double, and so on.
    • Withdrawals / Non-Runners:

      If a horse comes under Starter's Orders but refuses to race, the bet will be a loser.

      In all horse races where a runner is withdrawn, or adjudged not to have started - and therefore been declared a Non-Runner by the starter - stakes on that selection will be refunded. (The exception to this being Ante Post bets).

      Bets on the remaining runners in that race, taken at Early Prices or at Show Prices prior to withdrawal, will be subject to a deduction. This is based on Tattersalls Rule 4(c) (see below) and is dependent on the Non-Runner's price at the time it was withdrawn.

      In reformed markets, the total deduction on the two or more horses - one in the original market and one in the reformed market - will be calculated on the prices applicable in the original market.

      Bets on horses in subsequent markets that then have one or more withdrawn horses will have a deduction calculated on the prices applicable to that market at the time of the withdrawal.

      In the event that there is insufficient time to form a new market on the race, S.P. bets may also be subject to a deduction based on Tattersalls Rule 4(c).

      For bets at Early Prices, the application of Rule 4(c) will be determined by the last price available at the time the horse is withdrawn.

    • Rule 4 Deductions:

      What are Rule 4 deductions?

      Rule 4 deductions are made to the money or returns you receive back when the horse you have backed wins or is placed. These deductions are only made when one or more horses are withdrawn from the race after you have placed your bet.

      Rule 4 deductions are normally only made in cases where you have taken a price on your horse. Rule 4 deductions are only made from the Starting Price (see Betting Terminology) of a horse when a horse is withdrawn just before the race and there is no time to start or ‘reform’ a new market.

      Why are Rule 4 deductions made?

      Rule 4 deductions are made because when a horse is withdrawn from a race it becomes easier for the other runners to win. Put simply, each horse in the race will have one less to beat so it is more likely that it will win. Therefore an amount of money is taken out of winnings to balance the effect of the withdrawn runner.

      If bookmakers did not make Rule 4 deductions from winnings then in some cases customers would be able to back all the horses in one race and make money whichever horse won!

      For example, suppose there are three horses in a race. Horse A is 1/3 favourite, horse B is 3/1 and horse C is 12/1. Now suppose horse A is withdrawn and there are no deductions made to the prices of horse B and C. In this case if you placed £1 on horse B and £1 and horse C you would win more than the £2 staked whichever horse won. If horse B won you would win £4 and if horse C won you would win £13.

      Therefore Rule 4 deductions are made to take into account the additional advantage a customer has when a horse is withdrawn from a race.

      How much are Rule 4 deductions?

      The amount taken from your winnings depends on how likely the horse or horses that were withdrawn from the race were to win. For example, if the favourite in a race is withdrawn it will make it much easier for the second favourite to win. However, if an outsider is taken from the race then it will be still difficult for the second favourite to win as it still needs to beat the favourite.

      The exact amount taken out of your winnings is based on the last price of the withdrawn selection, in that market, at the time it is withdrawn from the race. This is because the price equates to its chances of winnings. Therefore the shorter its price, the bigger its chance of winning and the larger the Rule 4 deduction is.

      The table below shows the amount of the deductions based on the price of individual selections. These deductions are the amount of money that is taken from each £1 in winnings or returns. Hence if you win £10 and there is a 10p Rule 4 deduction you will only receive £9 winnings.

      Price at withdrawal: Deduction: Price at withdrawal: Deduction:
      1/9 or shorter 90p Evens to 6/5 45p
      2/11 to 2/17 85p 5/4 to 6/4 40p
      1/4 to 1/5 80p 8/5 to 7/4 35p
      3/10 to 2/7 75p 9/5 to 9/4 30p
      2/5 to 1/3 70p 12/5 to 3/1 25p
      8/15 to 4/9 65p 16/5 to 4/1 20p
      8/13 to 4/7 60p 9/2 to 11/2 15p
      4/5 to 4/6 55p 6/1 to 9/1 10p
      20/21 to 5/6 50p 10/1 to 14/1 5p

      What happens if more than one horse is withdrawn from a race?

      More than one Rule 4 deduction can apply if more than one horse is withdrawn from a race.

      For example, if a horse at 5/4 is withdrawn at 9:30 and a horse at 6/1 is withdrawn at 11:00, then a 40p and 10p deduction (50p in total) will apply to bets placed before 9:30. However if a new market is formed after 9:30 once the 5/4 horse had been withdrawn then only a 10p deduction will apply to bets placed between 9:30 and 11:00. This is because the prices for the market formed after 9:30 will not include the horse that has been withdrawn at 9:30.

      Do you always take out Rule 4 deductions?

      No. We normally ignore Rule 4 deductions if there is only one and if it is only for 5p.

      Why are they called Rule 4 deductions?

      Rule 4 deductions were originally part of Tattersall’s Rules of Racing. Tattersall’s are one of the organisations which historically helped to organise and codify horse racing in Britain and Ireland. Nowadays Tattersall’s are responsible for auctioning race horses. It is called a ‘Rule 4’ simply because the rule relating to withdrawals and deductions was the fourth in a list of rules which were originally devised to govern racing.

    • Double Result:

      We pay out on both First Past The Post (FPP) and the Official Result on all UK and Irish racing. First Past The Post refers to the immediate result after the race has been completed. The Official Result is announced at the weigh in on the day of the race, after any stewards enquiries/objections have been considered. Any amended results subsequent to the weighed in announcement will be disregarded and won’t affect the settlement of bets.

      Double Result applies to all win single and multiple bets, and the win part of each way bets.

      Exceptions

      The exceptions where First Past The Post does not apply and bets are settled according to the Official Result are as follows.

      • A selection taking the wrong course.
      • A selection carrying the wrong weight or failing to weigh in.
      • A forecast or tricast bet.
      • Any bet placed on meetings outside the UK/Ireland.
      • Any Ante Post bets.
      • Any Tote or Pari Mutuel bets.
      • A void race.
      • Where a selection is placed first in error by the judge.
    • Forecast and Tricast Betting:

      Forecast Betting:

      A 'straight forecast' is a bet where you name two selections to come 1st and 2nd in the correct order for a specified event.

      A 'reversed forecast' is when you name two selections to finish 1st and 2nd in any order for a specific event.

      A 'combination forecast' is when you choose three or more selections in an event, with any of these to finish 1st and 2nd in the race.

      Straight, reversed and combination forecasts are available provided 3 or more entries run in any one race.

      Forecast bets are settled in accordance with the industry computerised starting price Forecast Dividend.

      • If a Straight Forecast is accepted for a race where no dividend declared, the bet will be settled as a win single on the first selection stated.
      • Should a non-runner be selected in a forecast, the bet will be settled as a win single on the remaining selection. In reversed or combination bets each forecast is treated separately.
      • You can bet forecast singles and forecast doubles and these can be placed as either straight, reversed, or combination forecast bets.

      Customers are not allowed to include 'unnamed favourite' in forecast bets.Forecast bets cannot be placed on horses which are ‘unnamed favourite’.

      Tricast Betting:

      A tricast is a bet where you name the selections to finish 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in the correct order for a specified race. All tricast bets are settled in accordance with the appropriate industry dividend except where stated below.

      Horse Tricast bets are accepted on all Handicap, Nursery and Rated Stakes Handicap races that are included in our Full service provided eight or more horses are declared to run. If less than eight actually run but a Tricast dividend is declared, all bets will stand. Tricasts are also available on other advertised races outside of our Full Service.

      If a tricast bet is accepted where less than 4 runners take part in the race, it will be settled as a Straight Forecast on the selections nominated to finish 1st and 2nd, with the selection nominated to finish 3rd ignored.

      If a Tricast has been accepted for a race where no dividend is declared, it will be settled as a Straight Forecast on the selections nominated to finish 1st and 2nd. The 3rd is ignored for settlement purposes. If the bet is a Combination Tricast, every Tricast within that Combination will be settled as a Straight Forecast with the 3rd selection ignored for settlement purposes.

      If one non-runner is selected, the tricast will be settled as a Straight Forecast on the remaining 2 selections. to finish 1st and 2nd.

      If two non-runners are selected in a tricast, the bet will be void.

      If fewer than three runners finish the race a tricast dividend is declared based on those runners that do finish with the field.

      Customers are not allowed to include 'unnamed favourite' in tricast bets. Tricast bets cannot be placed on horses which are ‘unnamed favourite’.

    • Example:

      If you have a non-runner in a tricast bet, your bet is settled as a forecast on the remaining selections in the order they were selected.

      For example: £/€1 Tricast A - B - C, where B is a non-runner, will be settled as a £/€1 forecast A - C.

      Combination bets follow the same rules, with each combination settled separately.

      Example 2: £/€1 Combination Tricast A - B - C, where C is a non-runner, will be settled as:

      A - B - C = Stands as A- B
      A - C - B = Stands as A - B
      B - A - C = Stands as B - A
      B - C - A = Stands as B - A
      C - A - B = Stands as A - B
      C - B - A = Stands as B - A

      If you have 2 non-runners in a tricast bet, your bet is void and you will receive your stake back. Please note, the bet is not settled as a single on the remaining selection.

    • Lucky 15 / 31 / 63 Bets:

      The bonuses and consolations on this bet are available for certain markets only. The current applicable markets are horseracing daily race winner markets with the exception of ante-post markets. If this bet is accepted in error for any other type of market it will be settled without the bonuses or consolations. Your win single will be settled at 'double odds' if only one of your selections win. For each-way bets, the bonus is only applicable to the win part of the bet. Bets containing non-runners or void selections will not qualify for win bonuses or consolations. The following bullet-points set out the number of bets that each Lucky bet type contains and the applicable bonus:

      • Lucky 15 (4 selections) comprises: 4 Singles, 6 Doubles, 4 Trebles and 1 Fourfold. A 10% bonus on profit will be added to your winnings if all 4 selections win.
      • Lucky 31 (5 selections) comprises: 5 Singles, 10 Doubles, 10 Trebles, 5 Fourfolds and 1 Fivefold. A 20% bonus on profit will be added to your winnings if all 5 selections win.
      • Lucky 63 (6 selections) comprises: 6 Singles, 15 Doubles, 20 Trebles, 15 Fourfolds, 6 Fivefolds and 1 Sixfold. A 25% bonus on profit will be added to your winnings if all 6 selections win.
    • Patent:

      A Patent consists of seven bets on three selections in different events i.e 3 singles, 1 on each selection, 3 doubles and 1 treble. One or more selections must be successful to have a return. A £1/€1 patent costs £7/€7.

    • Unnamed Favourites:

      Bets nominating the favourite and second favourite are accepted where available on certain horse races at Starting Price only.

      The favourite is the selection returned at the shortest odds. When the favourite is nominated and two or more runners start at the shortest odds, then stakes are equally divided over the 'joint' or 'co' favourites created.

      For example, if you place £10 on ‘unnamed favourite’ and there are two favourites, you will get a £5 bet on each of them.

      Bets on the favourite are win only. If an Each-Way bet is accepted in error the place part will be void win or lose.

      When betting online Unnamed favourites may not be included in forecast or tricast bets.

    • Abandoned/Postponed:

      Bets will be void if:

      • The race is abandoned.
      • The race is declared void.
      • Any of the race conditions or entries change.
      • If the overnight declarations do not stand, all bets are void.

      Postponed Races:

      If a race is postponed to another day and final declarations stand then bets stand. However, single bets on horse racing will be made void and any selection involved in accumulative bets will be treated as a non-runner if:

      • The race is officially declared void.
      • The conditions of the race are altered after bets are made (as defined under Tattersalls rules).
      • The venue is altered.
      • The running surface is altered (e.g. Turf to Dirt/All Weather or vice versa).

      Re-scheduled Races or Meetings

      If a race or meeting is rescheduled to later in the day, or to another day and overnight declarations stand (meaning that the race is not reopened) then all bets stand, unless a refund is requested prior to the off of the rescheduled race. If a Board or Early Price has been taken on a rescheduled race, bets will revert to SP. Horses which came under Starter’s orders in the original race but do not take part in the rescheduled race will be treated as non-runners and returns on the remaining runners will be subject to Tattersalls’ Rule 4(c).

      If the overnight declarations do not stand, all bets are void.

    • Place Rules:

      Place Only bets are not accepted unless specifically advertised, or unless they are Tote bets. Any place only bets accepted in error will be void win or lose. In Each Way bets if the amount staked on the place part of the bet is greater than the win part, the excess place stake will be made void.

      Where Place Only betting is specifically advertised bets will be settled as follows:

      • The number of places paid will be in accordance with our normal each way place terms for horse racing.
      • All stakes on any non-runners will be refunded, however the number of places paid will not alter as a result of any non-runners. Bets on the remaining horses in the race will be subject to a deduction in accordance with the following table:
      Place Only price of runner (at the time of withdrawal): 2: 3: 4:
      Over 14/1 0p 0p 0p
      10/1 to 14/1 5p 0p 0p

      Total deductions will not exceed 95p in the £.
      In the event that the number of runners is the same or less than the number of places paid, all bets will be void.
      This market will be settled on the Official Result only.
      Dead-heat rules apply.

    • Early Prices:

      Our Early Prices (that is prices offered after the overnight declarations are made) are available daily on selected races up to the first racecourse show.

    • Ante Post Bets:

      Ante Post bets are accepted on the basis of ‘all in’, whether the horse or selection participates or not. This means that if the horse or selection does not run or participate in the race/event named, the bet is a loser. This applies even if the selection was not entered in the race, as long as there was the possibility that it could have been entered at a later stage. If a bet is placed on an Ante Post selection before the entries have closed, the bet will stand. The selection will only become void if:

      • The race/event is abandoned or declared void.
      • A horse is balloted out or eliminated under Jockey Club Rule 125, or prevented from running under Jockey Club Rule 1A.
      • The venue changes.
      • If the conditions of the race entry are changed prior to the horses coming under starters orders.
      • Where the horse had already been withdrawn from the race at the time of acceptance.
      • Specific terms such as “with a run” were offered at the time the bet was placed and the selection is subsequently withdrawn as a non-runner.
      • A bet on an Ante Post event was placed without taking a price
      • Where the above conditions apply to a selection in an Ante Post multiple bet, the selection in question will be treated as a non-runner and the bet settled at the Ante Post odds laid on the remaining selections. If a bet on an Ante Post selection was placed after the entries closed, it will become void unless:

      The race is run on a later date at the same venue; and entries are not re-opened, in which case the bet will stand.

      However, if the conditions of the race change (e.g. if the race is to be run over a different distance), all affected Ante-Post selections will be void. Each-Way Ante Post bets are settled according to the Each-Way terms advertised at the time the bet was placed. Ante Post selections can be included in most types of bets, including our range of speciality bets. However, any built-in bonuses and consolations specific to certain speciality bets (such as double the odds one winner on a Lucky 15/31/63 bet) will not apply.

    • Each Way Betting:
      An Each Way bet is made up of 2 parts: the ‘Win' and the ‘Place'.

      Each part is an equal stake, e.g. a £1 Each Way bet will have £1 on the ‘Win' and £1 on the ‘Place' (a total stake of £2).

      The ‘Win' part of your bet is on your selection to win the event, and the ‘Place' part is on your selection to finish either first or in one of the pre-determined places.

      If your selection wins, both the ‘Win' and ‘Place' parts of your bet will pay out. But if your selection only places, you will lose the ‘Win' part of your bet (and lose that part of the stake) but get paid out on the ‘Place'.

      The odds for the ‘Place' are given as a fraction of the odds for the ‘Win' and will be displayed to you when you place your bet.

      For horse racing, the ‘Place' part of Each Way bets will be given the following Place terms:

      Non-Handicap Races:

      2 - 4 Runners Win Only
      5 - 7 Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2
      8 or more Runners 1/5 the Odds 1, 2, 3

      Handicap Races:

      2 - 4 Runners Win Only
      5 - 7 Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2
      8 - 11 Runners 1/5 the Odds 1, 2, 3
      12 - 15 Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2, 3
      16 or more Runners 1/4 the Odds 1, 2, 3, 4

      Things to Consider:

      Please Note: Non-runners in a race can affect the Each-Way terms of your bet. For example, if your bet is placed in an 8 runner race, and a horse later withdraws reducing the field to 7, the Each-Way terms will change from 1/5 odds first 3 places to 1/4 odds on the first 2 places only.

      Enhanced Prices for Multiple Bets:

      In cases where we offer an enhanced price for multiple bets, such as doubles or trebles, any non-runners will be treated as void selections. For example, a treble with a non-runner will be settled as a double on the remaining selections. The prices for the remaining selections will be based on the advertised prices and not the enhanced odds.

    • Dead Heat Rules:
      A dead heat is when two or more selections in an event tie.

      If two selections dead-heat for any placing, half the stake is applied to the selection at full betting odds and the other half of the stake is lost.

      If more than two dead-heat, the stake is proportionally reduced accordingly.

      For example, if you have £10 win bet at 10/1 on a horse and it dead-heats for first place with another horse, then your betting stake is reduced to £5. You are returned £55 (ie: £5 win at 10/1 = £50 + £5 stake returned = £55 returns to you).

      In a dead-heat scenario, what does not happen is that the betting odds are halved. That is not the same thing as halving the stake at all and returns a different figure. If the odds were halved then in the example above you would have a £10 win bet at 5/1 (odds 10/1 halved) = £50 +£10 betting stake returned = £60 returned. That does not happen.

      In betting, the dead-heat rules are such that it is the STAKE that is halved not the betting odds.

      If it was a three-way tie / dead-heat then the stake would be reduced to one third of the original stake. So a £9 bet placed at 10/1 would become a £3 bet placed at 10/1.

    • Resulting:
      • All bets are governed by Tattersalls Rules of Betting. These rules will govern the settlement of bets if anything occurs that is not covered by our stated rules.
      • Bets are settled in accordance with the official result at the time of the "weigh in". However, we also pay out on bets if your horse was 'First Past The Post'. This means that if your horse crosses the finishing line first, but for some reason isn't awarded the race, you don't have to worry - we'll still pay you the winnings!
      • Should your selection be awarded a race or promoted to a place as a result of a Stewards Enquiry (which is announced before the "weigh in" or "winner alright") this means you will also receive a return for your selection.
      • First Past the Post is offered for all races in the UK & Ireland.
      • First Past The Post does not apply on the following markets, events and circumstances:

        - Horses that are disqualified because they failed to ‘weigh in’ correctly.

        - Horses that are disqualified because they have taken the ‘wrong course’.

        - Where there is an official correction to the result by the judge or SIS prior to the "weigh in" and any races which are declared void before the "weigh in" for which Rules of Racing will apply.

        - Ante Post bets

        - Races which are declared void.

      • Any bets other than Ante Post will be void if the race is abandoned or declared void. If the race is postponed to a future day and the final Declarations stand, all bets will stand providing the venue is not changed. If this is the case all bets will be void.
      • In the event of a false start etc resulting in a race being re-run, the race is not considered to be 'under starters orders' and stakes will be refunded on selections not taking part in the re-run with any returns on the remaining subject to Tattersalls Rule 4(c). The number of runners taking part in the re-run governs the Place terms.
      • If a horse refuses to come out of the starting stalls or refuses to start in a National Hunt race but the official starter deems the horse a runner then that horse will be settled as a loser. Walkovers and void races count as races but any selection involved will be treated as a non-runner.
      • Where a race has been declared a no-race and is re-run, all bets will stand for the Horses that take part in the re-run but single bets may be cancelled by mutual agreement up until the revised off time. Prices laid on a no-race will stand for the re-run race unless there is a non runner, in which case all bets will be settled as per Tattersals rule 4. Bets may be cancelled by mutual agreement prior to the re-run taking place but multiple bets will stand.

If a match is abandoned for any reason, bets will be void unless the bet has already been settled. 21Bet.co.uk will look at all available evidence to determine the result of these bets in order to make a fair determination of whether the service was in fact an ace/double fault. Our decision in respect of such bets shall be final and we reserve the right to void such bets where it is impossible to conclusively determine whether a serve was an ace/double fault based on all available evidence at the time.

    • Points/Receiver Points in Game:

      Bets placed on the winner of points that do not take place will be void. Where a player is handed a code violation by the umpire and a point is awarded to their opponent, bets placed on the winner of the next point will be void.
      For example, after the 3rd point in a the first game of a match Murray is handed a code violation and a point is awarded to Federer. In this case all bets on the 4th Point, 1st Game will be void. However, we will count a code violation point in order to settle the total number of points in game. If a point is mistakenly settled before a player 'challenges' the outcome of the point in matches where such actions are allowed, we reserve the right to resettle the bet and make positive or negative adjustments to your account depending on the outcome of the challenge.

        All other asian handicap lines follow the same principle as mentioned above.

    • Top Player / FSB Points markets:
      • Market results are based on the full-time FSB Points total at the end of the regularly scheduled match.
      • For Champions League games taking place in any of the knockout stages of the Competition, this includes points accumulated in the 30 minutes of extra-time in the event scores are tied at the end of 90 minutes, but does not take into account penalty shoot-outs should the scores be tied after 120 minutes.
      • Any alterations to the FSB Points ratings after the fact, for example the reallocation of a goal to a different player after an official review, will not be taken into account unless these changes are incorporated prior to the market being paid out. Markets typically pay out 10-15 minutes after each match upon the receipt of the final statistical data file from Opta.
    • Top Player Head to Head markets:

      The winning selection is the player (from the pair of players available for selection) who scores the most FSB Points. If one or more contestants fail to start, all bets are considered void and stakes will be refunded. In event of tie dead heat rules apply. If a 'dead-heat' is declared on any event, half the stake is applied to the selection at full odds and the other half is lost.

    • Top Player Man of the Match markets:
      • The winning selection is the player (from the group of players available for selection) who scores the most FSB Points.
      • If a player who has not been included in the group of players available for selection scores more FSB Points than the highest scoring player who was available for selection it will not affect the payout of the market.
      • All bets placed on a player who does not start the match will be treated as a “non-runner” and those stakes will be refunded.
      • In the event that there are multiple non-runners and the market is priced “over-broke” we reserve the right to void the market at any time.
      • In event of tie dead heat rules apply. If a 'dead-heat' is declared on any event, half the stake is applied to the selection at full odds and the other half is lost. If more than two 'dead-heat', the stake is proportioned accordingly.
    • Top Player Each-Way Betting:

      An each-way bet is made up of two equal stakes. One stake is on your selection to be the Top Player for the game in question with the other selection to be 'placed' in the top 3 points scorers for the game. The odds for the place part of the bet are 1/5 (one fifth) of the win part.

      Example:

      • In the Everton v Manchester United game, a bet of £10 is placed on Antonio Valencia to be the highest points scorer in the game at odds of 10/1 (11) to win, with place terms 1/5 of the odds for positions 1, 2 and 3. The total stake is therefore £20.00.
      • If Valencia is the second or third highest points scorer, then the place part of your bet will be won at a price of 2/1 (3) meaning your returns will be (£10.00 x 2) + £10.00 = £30.00.
      • If Valencia is the highest points scorer for this game, then both the win and place parts of the bet are successful.
      • Your winnings are then £30.00 for the place and also £110.00 (£10.00 x 10 + £10.00) for the win making a total of £140.00.
      • If Valencia was to score the joint highest number of points in this game along with one other player (a 'dead heat'), then half the stake in the win part of the bet is applied to the selection at full odds and the other half is lost.
      • If more than two 'dead heat', then the win part of the bet is proportioned accordingly.
      • Total Bookings:
      • Predict the total number of cards in a match. The card line will either be a quarter-card, half-card or whole-card with bet settlement as follows:
      • Card line of 4.5 - If you bet over 4.5, your bet wins if there are more than 4 cards in the match, Otherwise your stake is lost.
      • If you bet under 4.5, your bets wins if there are less than 5 cards in the match, Otherwise your stake is lost.
      • With a card line of a whole number, if the total number of cards in the match is the same as the card line, your stake is returned.
      • Card line of 5.5, 6 - If you bet over, your stake is equally divided between over 5.5 cards and over 6 cards.
      • Your bet wins if there are more than 6 cards in the match.
      • If there are 6 cards exactly, half your stake wins and the other half is returned. Otherwise your entire stake is lost. If you bet under,your stake is equally divided between under 5.5 cards and under 6 cards.
      • Your bet wins if there are less than 6 cards in the match. If there are 6 cards exactly, half your stake is lost and the other half is returned, Otherwise your entire stake is lost.
      • Yellow card counts as 1, red card counts as 2. Second yellows are ignored for settlement purposes(e.g. maximum card count per player is 3).
      • Settlement will be made with reference to all available evidence to cards shown during the scheduled 90 minutes play. Any card shown after the full time whistle has been blown will be disregarded.
      • Cards shown to non-players (e.g. managers, substitutes or substituted players who play no subsequent part in the game) do not count towards the total.
      • In the event of a match being abandoned before 90 minutes have been played then all bets will be void unless settlement of bets is already determined.
      • Total Corners:
      • Predict the total number of corners in a match. The corner line will be either a quarter-corner, half-corner or whole-corner with bet settlement as follows:
      • Corner line of 8.5 - If you bet over 8.5, your bet wins if there are more than 8 corners in the match, otherwise your stake is lost.
      • If you bet under 8.5, your bets wins if there are less than 9 corners in the match. Otherwise your stake is lost.
      • With a corner line of a whole number, if the total number of corners is the same as the corner line, your stake is returned.
      • Corner line of 8, 8.5 - If you bet over, your stake is equally divided between over 8 corners and over 8.5 corners.
      • Your bet wins if there are more than 8 corners in the match.
      • If there are 8 corners exactly, half your stake is lost and the other half is returned, Otherwise your entire stake is lost.

      If a player is disqualified or withdraws in the rounds after the cut, when his/her opponent has already missed the cut, the disqualified player is deemed the winner.

      If both players withdraw or are disqualified before the cut all bets are void. The same applies if this happens to them both after they have made the cut.

      Players missing the cut will be eliminated unless all of the players in the group miss the cut. If this occurs the lowest score at that stage will determine the winner.

      Dead Heat rules apply if two or more players are tied at the end of the tournament, unless the result is determined by a playoff in which case the playoff winner is considered the Group winner.

      If only one player in a group starts, all bets will be void.

      Straight forecasts are settled in accordance with the Greyhound Computer Forecast returns.

      If a forecast contains a non-runner this will be settled as a win single on the remaining runner.

      In a combination forecast, where a selection becomes a non-runner, the total stake of the bet will be divided equally between the possible forecast combinations. This will be achieved using the remaining selections and the forecasts, including the non-runner, becoming singles.

      Tricasts are accepted in singles only.

      If a race finishes as a dead heat, each trap will receive a ‘half-win’, likewise if it is a three-way dead heat, each trap will receive a ‘one-third win’ and so on.

      In the event of a meeting not starting, all bets are void.

      Payment will be made on the official result of races. Bets will be void in the event of no Starting Price being returned.

      Multiple bets will only be accepted on races that are priced up.

    • Applicability of Horse Racing Rules

      Where a rule is not specifically covered in these greyhound rules, the equivalent rule stated in the horse racing section will apply where appropriate.
