House Rules
  1. Specific Terms and Conditions/House Rules for FanDuel SportsbookPart A – Introduction
    1. Use and Interpretation

    The FanDuel Sportsbook Rules and Regulations (“Sportsbook House Rules“) are part of the FanDuel Sportsbook Terms & Conditions.

    The Sportsbook House Rules apply in relation to the markets offered and bets placed on the FanDuel Sportsbook Website and the FanDuel Sportsbook Betting Apps as well as at the FanDuel Sportsbook retail location at Tioga Downs Casino Resort.

    The Sportsbook House Rules consist of the following:

    • This Introduction section (Part A);
    • The General Rules (set out in Part B below); and
    • The Specific Sports Rules (set out in Part C below – these apply to certain sports).

    The General Rules apply to all bets on the aforementioned products unless stated otherwise in the Specific Sports Rules. If there is any inconsistency between the Specific Sports Rules and the General Rules, the Specific Sports Rules shall prevail. The General Rules will apply in respect of any category of bets or markets not referred to in the Specific Sports Rules (for example, special bets or beach volleyball).

    FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right to amend the Sportsbook House Rules at any time subject to the regulatory approval of the New York State Gaming Commission (“NYSGC”). Any such revision will be binding and effective immediately on the posting out to customers of such rule changes and any bets accepted after the rule changes have been posted shall be governed by the new Sportsbook House Rules.

    The use of the FanDuel Sportsbook is subject to the regulations imposed by the NYSGC.  Any decision issued by the NYSGC supersedes any clause(s) listed in these Sportsbook House Rules.

    1. Customer Responsibility

    FanDuel Sportsbook customers should make themselves aware of all of the Sportsbook House Rules affecting any market on which they wish to place a bet.

    1. Customer Betting Disputes

    If a customer is not satisfied with how a bet or a market has been settled then the customer should provide details of their grievance to FanDuel Sportsbook Customer Service.

    When a customer has exhausted the internal FanDuel Sportsbook betting dispute process without a satisfactory outcome, and the customer’s betting dispute is related to betting that took place in New York, the customer can submit their betting dispute to the NYSGC at:

    1. Retail and Kiosk Betting Tickets

     

    • The FanDuel Sportsbook is not responsible for lost, stolen or unreadable tickets.
    • Customers should verify that all information on wagering tickets is accurate before leaving the betting window or kiosk. Management is not responsible for errors or omissions made on a ticket once the patron has left the betting window or kiosk. Tickets may not be altered or voided prior to the start of an event, except at the discretion of management and with the approval of both parties.
    • Winning tickets may be mailed in for redemption. See the reverse side of the wagering ticket for mail-in collection instructions.  The FanDuel Sportsbook is not responsible for tickets that are not mailed-in in compliance with the printed instructions on the reverse side of the wagering ticket.
    • Winning tickets expire one (1) year from the time of the event. The time on the tickets is Eastern Time.

     

    1. Wager Type Calculations

     

    Calculations for wager types are as follows:

    • Moneyline payoff: The money line is expressed as a 3-digit number. For example, -120 means a player must bet $120 for every $100 they wish to win, and multiples thereof. Or, +150 means a player will win $150 for every $100 bet.
    • Point spread payoff: The point spread is expressed as a 3-digit number. For example, -110 means a player must bet $110 for every $100 they wish to win.  Or +225 means a player will win $225 for every $100 bet.
    • Parlay payoff – Odds will be calculated based on the prices of the individual selections.
    • Teaser payoff – Odds are derived from a fixed payout chart.

     

    1. Notification of Odds or Line Changes

     

    Customers will be notified of odds or line changes in the following manner:

    • Posted odds will be changed automatically on the electronic boards.
    • Posted odds will be changed manually on all handwritten boards.
    • Posted changes will be updated within 10 minutes on the electronic boards or the handwritten boards.
    • Non-posted printed media will be updated on a weekly basis with the date of the last issue.

    The FanDuel Sportsbook will accept wagers on currently posted terms unless otherwise posted or noted on printed media.

    For all pre-play bets placed at the FanDuel Sportsbook retail location, customers will be notified if odds (and/or handicap/ point spread) shorten before bet placement is confirmed and required to confirm the new quote before the transaction is complete.  If odds are greater from original bet request to placement, the bet will be placed automatically.  FanDuel Sportsbook aims to use its reasonable efforts to follow the same policy for all in-play betting, but reserves the right to accept a bet without notification.

    For all wagers placed at the FanDuel Sportsbook Website and the FanDuel Sportsbook Betting Apps, customers will be notified within the betslip if odds for their selection change.  For all pre-play bets at the FanDuel Sportsbook Website and the FanDuel Sportsbook Betting Apps, customers will be notified if odds shorten before bet placement is confirmed and required to confirm the new quote before the transaction is complete.  If odds are greater from the original bet request to placement, the bet will be placed automatically.  FanDuel Sportsbook aims to use its reasonable efforts to follow the same policy for all in-play betting, but reserves the right to accept a bet without notification.

    1. Funding of Wagers

    Customers may fund wagers at the FanDuel Sportsbook retail location at the Tioga Downs Resort Casino via cash or winning tickets at a betting window, cash/wagering vouchers, or other methods approved by the NYSGC.

    Customers may fund their FanDuel Sportsbook Account via debit cards, credit cards (up to $2,500 per year), prepaid cards, automated clearing house transfers, electronic funds transfers, wire transfers, free bets, promotional credits, bonus credits, complimentaries, e-wallets, deposits of cash at an in-person FanDuel-partnered retail wagering location, winnings or any other means approved by the NYSGC.

    1. In-Play Betting

     If a market is not scheduled to be turned in-play but FanDuel Sportsbook fails to suspend the market at the relevant time, then:

    • if the event has a scheduled ‘off’ time, all bets matched after that scheduled off time will be void; and
    • if the event does not have a scheduled ‘off’ time, FanDuel Sportsbook will use its reasonable efforts to ascertain the time of the actual ‘off’ and all bets after the time of the ‘off’ determined by FanDuel Sportsbook will be void.

    FanDuel Sportsbook aims to use its reasonable efforts to suspend in-play markets at the start of and at the end of the event. However, FanDuel Sportsbook does not guarantee that such markets will be suspended at the relevant time.

    FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right at its absolute discretion to part-suspend or fully suspend outcomes/selections in a market that has been turned in-play.

    FanDuel Sportsbook customers are responsible for managing their in-play bets at all times.

    For the purposes of in-play betting, customers should be aware that transmissions described as “live” by some broadcasters may actually be delayed or pre-recorded. The extent of any delay may vary depending on the set-up through which they are receiving pictures or data. Please also be aware that, for operational reasons, bet requests made in-play may take slightly longer to process.

    If FanDuel Sportsbook accepts a bet on a market for which the outcome has already been determined, then that bet shall be deemed void (and no winnings shall be payable in respect of it) regardless of the bet being a win, lose or push.

    Please be aware that although the current score, time elapsed and other data provided on FanDuel Sportsbook site is sourced from a “live” feed provided by a third party, you should be aware that this data may be subject to a time delay and/or be inaccurate. If you rely on this data to place bets, you do so entirely at your own risk. FanDuel Sportsbook provides this data ‘AS IS’ with no warranty as to the accuracy, completeness or timeliness of such data and accepts no responsibility for any loss (direct or indirect) suffered by you as a result of your reliance on it.

     

    1. Results and Market Settlement

     

    • General

     

    • Where the Specific Sports Rules do not specify how and on what basis a market will be settled, markets will be settled on the official result of the relevant governing body regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result.
    • If no official result of a relevant governing body is available, the result will be determined by FanDuel Sportsbook (acting reasonably) using information from independent sources. In such cases, if any new information comes into the public domain within 48 hours of settlement, then FanDuel Sportsbook shall (acting reasonably) determine either:
      1. whether the market should be reinstated or resettled in light of this new information; or
      2. whether or not to wait for further information before deciding whether to reinstate or resettle the market. Except where FanDuel Sportsbook has announced that it is waiting for further information, any information that comes into the public domain more than 48 hours after a market has been settled shall not be considered by FanDuel Sportsbook (regardless of whether or not such information may have led to a different result).
    • In the event of any uncertainty about any result or potential result, FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right to suspend settlement of any market for an unlimited period until the uncertainty can be resolved to the reasonable satisfaction of FanDuel Sportsbook. FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right to void any market if the uncertainty regarding settlement cannot be resolved to FanDuel Sportsbook’s reasonable satisfaction.
    • In the event of a withdrawal of a selection after the start of an event due to such selection testing positive for a virus or other disease, all wagers on that selection shall be void.
    • All-In Betting – All-In’ means that regardless of whether or not a particular competitor or team or member of a team starts or completes the event on which a bet is placed, all bets stand and no refunds will be payable. Clients will be notified if a market is All-In via Blurbs, Market title and/or Selection name.
    • In the event a player, team or selection are deemed the winner of a specified Outright market with one winner (e.g. NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship) but were not offered for betting due to state regulations forbidding betting on that player, team or selection then all bets placed on that market will be void. This does not include cashed out bets, which will be settled at the specified cash out offer received by the customer. For markets with multiple winners (e.g. To Make Final Four), if a non-listed player, team or selection wins, then all bets are action.
    • Weekly/Daily specials: All relevant games must be played to a natural completion for wagers to stand. In the event one or more game(s) are postponed and/or have a venue change, all wagers in the relevant market will be refunded.
    • Regarding player markets. Additional to the rules above, all listed players must be active for wagers to stand. If one or more player(s) listed do not play, all wagers will be refunded.

     

    • Resettlements

     

    • Markets are generally settled shortly after the end of the event in question. FanDuel Sportsbook may settle (or part-settle) some markets before the official result is declared purely as a customer service benefit. However, FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right to amend the settlement of the market if:
      1. the official result is different to the result on which FanDuel Sportsbook initially settled the market; or
      2. if the whole market is eventually voided (e.g. for an abandoned event).
    • FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right to reverse the settlement of a market if a market is settled in error (for example, a human or technical error).
    • If FanDuel Sportsbook resettles a market, this may lead to amendments being made to a customer’s balance and/or the deduction of funds from a customer’s Account to reflect changes in market settlement.
    • FanDuel Sportsbook will settle markets on the basis that it obtains the relevant information once the outcome has been determined. If this information is not obtained, or if there is an obvious error in the information, the settlement of the bet offer will be based on other public information/ official sources at the reasonable discretion of FanDuel Sportsbook.
    • FanDuel Sportsbook may be required by law to seek approval with the relevant regulatory body before making any amendments to a price or bet status.

     

    • Non-Runners

     

    • Unless stated otherwise, sports bets are accepted on a “non-runner, no bet” basis. This means that stakes will be refunded on a player, team or other competitor that is withdrawn prior to the start of an event. If you have placed a bet on a sporting event run on a “non-runner, no bet” basis and a player, team or other competitor (on which you did not place your bet) is withdrawn, suspended or disqualified from that event, we may apply relevant deductions to your winnings (based on the price of the player, team or other competitor that is withdrawn referenced in the table below).
    • Where specified, certain markets will be offered on an “all-in compete or not” basis. This means that, if a player, team or other competitor is withdrawn from an event (whether he, she or it pulls out of the event, is suspended or disqualified from it or otherwise) before he, she or it has taken part in the event, then any bet placed on that player, team or competitor (as applicable) will be deemed a losing bet.
    • If an event is specified as “fixed draw” and a team, player or other competitor is withdrawn, suspended or disqualified from that event, we reserve the right to settle any bets on the subsequent prices once the market has been revised without the withdrawn team/player.
    • If a player, team or other competitor has taken any part in a sporting event once it has officially started and then fails to complete that event for any reason, any bet placed on that player, team or other competitor will be deemed live (i.e. bets on that player, team or other competitor will not be voided).

     

     

    1. Unexpected Events and Other Changes

     

    To the extent there is any inconsistency between the general rules contained in this Part B, Section 8 and the Specific Sports Rules applying to a specific event, the following general rules will prevail:

    • If an event or events occur beyond the reasonable control of FanDuel Sportsbook such as an epidemic, pandemic, flood, fire, earthquake, element of nature or act of God, act of war, terrorism, riot, rebellion, strike, blockade, labor disruption or other cause, that materially impact any sporting or other event (or a series of events in a season), which is the subject of a contingency or outcome of a market offered by FanDuel Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook may, acting in good faith, exercise its discretion to void, cancel, restrict or otherwise alter or adjust the payout (in whole or in part) of the affected wager(s) placed on the relevant market (including, without limitation, retrospectively take any of the actions contemplated once a bet has been placed and before or after it has been resolved). For the avoidance of doubt, “impact” on any sporting or other event includes, without limitation:
      • Any reduction in the number of games or matches in a season;
      • Any material change in the length of a game or match or when the matches are played;
      • A material change to the format or rules of the relevant event(s), series or competitions as determined by the relevant sports body; or
      • A change in the location of any match, game or event.

     

    1. Futures Settlement

     

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, where a market has no rules in the Specific Sports Rules in relation to how and on what basis a futures market will be settled the following shall apply.
    • Where a season or tournament is unexpectedly shortened all futures markets/bets will be settled in accordance with the official ruling of the relevant governing body after the postponement, subject to i. and ii. below, so long as the ruling is made within 90 days after the scheduled completion date:

     

    1. Unless the outcome has unequivocally been determined prior to the interruption of the season – example Team A were prior to the postponement unable to win more than x regular season games, bets on over x games will be settled as a loser and bets on under x wins settled as winners;
    2. Where the competition format has materially changed after the postponement and any outcome that was prior to the postponement possible is no longer made possible due to the format change – example Team B were mathematically able to make playoffs prior to the postponement however a new playoff format announced after the postponement prevented any opportunity to make playoffs, all bets on Team B to make and miss playoffs will be void.
    • Where a league/ governing body officially suspends a season and rules for recording purposes that all stats are final on the shortened season, futures will be settled in accordance with the official ruling. If deemed completed by the relevant governing body, winners will be settled as so, and remaining selections void unless the outcome has unequivocally been determined prior to the suspension of the season or stated by the relevant governing body:
      1. Example: 2019/20 NHL Regular season points: Detroit Red Wings Over/Under 74.5 points settled as Under 74.5 as the winning selection. Result fully determined prior to season suspension (Detroit Red Wings on 39 points prior to suspension. Only 24 points on offer if season was to resume thus result fully determined as Under 74.5).
      2. Example: 2019/20 NHL Regular season points: Boston Bruins Over/Under 100.5 points. Boston Bruins had recorded 100 points prior to season suspension. Result undetermined if season wasn’t to resume and thus voided.
      3. Example: 2019/20 Rocket Richard Trophy. Ovechkin/Pastrnak settled as winners and all other selections settled as losers. Both players leading prior to season suspension and ruled as winners and deemed completed as per governing body.
    • Bets on markets that don’t reach completion before the interruption but have already been unconditionally determined will be settled as such. For example, if a team is mathematically eliminated from playoffs prior to the interruption then bets on them to miss the playoffs are winners whereas bets on them to make the playoffs or win the Championship are losers.
    • If the ruling governing body announces within 90 days of the original scheduled completion date, the rescheduling of a tournament or competition all bets on the original competition will remain active. At the customer’s request, FanDuel Sportsbook will void bets made on the originally scheduled tournament or competition but only before the start of the rescheduled competition. In the event that no official ruling is made postponing the competition or tournament within 90 days of the original scheduled completion date all bets will be void.
      1. Example: Euro 2020 Soccer Tournament was rescheduled to take place in 2021 all bets prior to the postponement remained active unless a customer contacted to void the bet prior to the start of the tournament in 2021.
      2. Example: There is no announcement from the International Tennis Federation by September 5, 2020 on the rescheduling of the 2020 French Open, all futures bets on the French Open 2020 will be void.

     

    1. Abandonments, Cancellations, Postponements, Forfeits

     

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, where a market has no rules in the Specific Sports Rules in relation to an abandonment, cancellation and/or postponement the following shall apply.
    • In relation to any match, fixture, game, individual event, race or similar: If the event is not completed within 48 hours after the scheduled completion date, then all bets on markets for this event will be void, except for bets on any markets that have been unconditionally determined. All bets on an event that is officially deemed a forfeit will be void.
    • In relation to any tournament, competition or similar: If the event is not completed within 48 hours following the scheduled completion date of the event, then any markets relating to the event will be settled in accordance with the official ruling of the relevant governing body, providing such a decision is given within 90 days after the scheduled completion date. If no official ruling is announced in this 90 day period, then bets on any market relating to this event will be void, except for bets on any markets which have been unconditionally determined. If a market is to be voided but has been part-settled as a courtesy to FanDuel Sportsbook customers, then such part-settled bets will be reversed and all bets on the market will be void.
    • If there is no further sporting action in any market that does not contain the selection ‘draw’ or ‘tie’, all bets placed after this conclusion of action will be voided (e.g. If the game ends in a draw and the two selections that are named in the market are “Team A” and “Team B” without a “Draw” or “Tie” selection – the bet on either Team A or B will be Voided).
    • FanDuel Sportsbook will decide (acting reasonably) whether a market relates to a match (or similar) or a tournament (or similar). However, by way of example, the following shall apply:

     

    1. Major League Soccer Cup = tournament;
    2. NFL AFC West = tournament;
    • Ryder Cup outright = tournament;
    1. Golf tournament outright = tournament;
    2. Tennis Tournament outright = tournament;
    3. Motor Race (e.g. Indianapolis 500) = match;
    • NBA Finals = match;
    • NBA Championship = tournament.

     

    1. Change of Venue

     

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if change of venue is not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules then the following shall apply:
      • For any team sport: if the scheduled venue is changed after a bet is placed, all bets will be void only if the new venue is a home ground of the original away team (or in the case of international matches, only if the venue changes to a venue in a different country).
      • For all categories or markets other than team sports: if the scheduled venue is changed after a bet is placed, all bets will stand.
      • If there is a change in the type of scheduled surface (E.g. a field hockey match switching from grass to astro-turf) after a bet is placed, all bets will stand.

     

    1. Periods of Time

     

    • Some markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules then the following shall apply.
    • If the scheduled duration of an event is changed after a bet is placed but before the start of the event, then all bets will be void.
    • Some markets refer to the length of time until an occurrence in the event (e.g. time of first goal). If an event happens in stoppage or injury time after any regular time period then it will be deemed to have occurred at the end of the regular time period. For example, if a goal is scored in first half stoppage-time in a soccer match it will be deemed to have occurred on 45 minutes.
    • All bets apply to the relevant full ‘regular time’ period including stoppage time. Any extra-time and/or penalty shoot-out is not included.
    • References within these Rules and Regulations to a particular number of ‘days’ shall mean the end of the day local time after the expiration of the specified number of days. For example, if a rugby match is scheduled for the 1st of December, then the rule that allows the match to be completed within 48 hours after the scheduled completion date (see Paragraph 3 above) would mean that the deadline for completion of that match would be 11:59:59 p.m. on the 4th of December.

     

    1. “To Qualify” Markets

     

    • Some sports/markets have different rules and these are listed in the Specific Sports Rules. However, if not dealt with in the Specific Sports Rules then the following shall apply.
    • Any ‘to qualify’ market (e.g. “to reach the final” markets) will be determined by the competitor or team that progresses, whether or not they take part in the next round or event for which they have qualified. Markets will be settled after the qualifying stage and any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result will not count.

     

    1. Dead Heats

     

    • Unless stated otherwise in the Specific Sports Rules the Dead Heat Rule applies to bets on a market where there are more winners than expected.
    • If a “dead-heat” between two selections 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-heats” are declared, the stake is proportioned accordingly.
    • If not otherwise stated as a push settlement, In the event of a tie, where no ‘draw’ option was offered by FanDuel on such outcome, wagers will be paid at face value of the ticket (total payout figure including the initial stake) divided by the number of competitors tied for that placing. The stake is proportioned according to the number of competitors tied for that placing.
    • For example, $100 placed on Tiger Woods @ +200 to finish top 10. If Tiger ties with four other competitors for 10th position your wager will be calculated by dividing your $100 stake five times as per Rules.  Calculation: $20*+200 = $60.

     

    1. Errors

     

    • FanDuel Sportsbook makes every effort to ensure that it does not make any errors when accepting bets. However, if as a result of technical or system problems or human error, a bet is accepted that is at odds (which includes handicap provisions or similar) and/or is on terms that are either:
      • materially different from those available in the general betting market at the time the bet was made; or
      • clearly incorrect given the chance of the event occurring at the time the bet was made including, in either case, because the bet was placed after the start of an event, because the market was not displaying or reflecting in-play status, or because of any other reason, then the FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right to either (i) correct any obvious errors by settling winning bets at the ‘correct price,’ as reasonably determined by FanDuel Sportsbook, or (ii) void any bet placed where such errors have occurred.
    • If FanDuel Sportsbook accepts a bet on a market for which the outcome has already been determined, then that bet shall be deemed void (and no winnings shall be payable in respect of it).

     

    1. Duplicate Events

     

    • In the event that odds for the same exact game are displayed on the FanDuel Sportsbook more than once (regardless of whether the markets are related and/or displayed odds are different), FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right to cancel any correlated parlay bets placed on both/multiple events, regardless of whether the markets and/or displayed odds are different.
    • Single Bets placed individually on the above markets will be settled in accordance with official results.

     

    1. Maximum Winnings

     

    • For all events offered, the maximum winning limit per bet (e.g., straight, parlay, SGP, or other) is $1 million US Dollars.
    • The maximum winnings limit will apply to any one customer, or group of customers acting together, wagering on the same combination of selections, regardless of whether or not such bets are struck separately, at a range of different prices, on different days and through a number of different accounts. If FanDuel Sportsbook believes that a number of bets have been placed in this way, the total payment of all those bets combined will be limited to one single maximum winnings.

     

    1. Parlays

     

    • A parlay bet consists of two or more selections, which must all win for a payout to be due.
    • FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right in its sole discretion not to accept certain parlay bets or to scale back stakes.
    • All parlay bets placed are subject to the Sportsbook Rules that apply to each individual sport that relates to any leg of any parlay bet.
    • Odds Boosts that include parlay bets are subject to the Odds Boost settlement rules set forth in Section 21 below.
    • If any selection in any leg is a non-runner or otherwise void under the Sportsbook Rules (e.g. an abandoned match) then all bets on that individual leg will be void and the parlay bet shall be adjusted accordingly. For example a treble including one void leg will become a double. If that voided leg means that an individual bet within a parlay becomes a single bet, then this single bet will stand. Same Game Parlays (SGP’s) will be settled in the same manner. If a selection within the wager is voided, the wager odds will be re-calculated using the remaining legs.
    • If any leg in a parlay bet is a push, then the parlay bet payout will be recalculated removing the push leg.
    • Parlay bets combining different selections are not accepted when there are related contingencies (i.e. where the outcome of one event is likely to affect the odds on the outcome of another event), except where those selections are chosen as part of a “Same Game Parlay”. The rejection of related contingency bets may happen automatically at the bet placement stage. However, if such a bet is taken in error, FanDuel Sportsbook may settle the individual bet combinations which include two or more of the related contingency selections, as single bets.
    • A “Same Game Parlay” is a type of parlay wager that combines eligible selections within the same event. Individual event markets that are eligible to be combined will include a “Same Game Parlay” designation.
    • Round Robin wagers cannot combine different selections when there are related contingencies. If selections with related contingencies are attempted as part of a round robin, only eligible selections will be accepted at the bet placement stage. However, if selections with related contingencies are accepted in error, FanDuel Sportsbook may settle the wager as if only one of the selections from the event was included.

     

    1. Teasers

     

    • In the event of one teaser leg resulting in a push or void, the following settlement will take place:
      • Two Team Teaser: the entire teaser is voided and the bet will be refunded.
      • Any other Teaser: the teaser has action and the teaser payout will be recalculated removing the voided or push legs.
    1. Cash Out

     

    • Cash Out is a feature which is offered on various singles and multiples FanDuel Sportsbook bets. Cash Out allows you to amend your original bet and lock in a profit or a loss by settling your bet (or a portion of your bet) early, without having to wait for the event to finish.
    • If you make a Cash Out request, you will be notified whether or not your request has been successful. Your request to Cash Out is not guaranteed to be accepted and may be unsuccessful if, for example, the market suspends, or the odds move before your request has been processed.
    • If your Cash Out request is successful, a ‘success’ message will be shown, and your bet (or the relevant portion of your bet) will be settled immediately, and any funds due will be credited to your account. Note that this includes the original stake (or portion of your stake). For a full Cash Out, the bet is settled and any subsequent events will have no impact on the amount returned to your account. For a partial Cash Out, part of your bet is settled and any subsequent events will only impact on the portion of your bet which you have not Cashed Out.
    • If your Cash Out request is unsuccessful, a message will be shown which gives the reason why and a new Cash Out offer may be offered to you.
    • Cash Out requests made in-play may take longer to process because of the in-play bet delay.
    • Cash Out is not currently available on all FanDuel Sportsbook markets – a Cash Out icon will be displayed for the markets that support Cash Out. See the Help page for more details on when Cash Out may not be available. FanDuel Sportsbook will not be liable for any losses that may arise from the cash out feature being unavailable for any reason.
    • Using Cash Out may mean you will opt out of and no longer be eligible for a particular promotion. See the terms and conditions of the promotion for further details.
    • FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right to reverse the settlement of a Cash Out if the bet or a market is settled in error (for example, a human or technical error). If FanDuel Sportsbook resettles a bet, this may lead to amendments being made to a customer’s balance to reflect changes in bet settlement. If an incorrect Cash Out offer is presented to a customer and then accepted due to a technical fault, FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right to resettle the bet using the correct Cash Out offer.
    • FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right to suspend or disable the Cash Out feature at any time.

     

    1. Odds Boosts

     

    • Any bets for which we offer Odds Boosts will be settled on the basis of normal time and injury time (i.e. excluding any extra time, penalties or similar) unless otherwise specified in the relevant bet or bet rules
    • Unless otherwise stated, bets for which Odds Boosts are offered will be governed by FanDuel Sportsbook’s usual settlement rules.
    • We reserve the right to void any bet with an Odds Boost if: (i) the enhanced price was intended to apply to pre-match bets only and (ii) we erroneously accepted the bet, at its enhanced price, after the relevant event started.
    • For Odds Boost parlays, if any selection in any leg is a non-runner or otherwise void under the Sportsbook House Rules then the entire Odds Boost bet will be void regardless of the outcome of other selections in the parlay.
    • In the event of a clear and obvious wording or pricing error for an Odds Boost, we will (in accordance with our usual settlement rules) aim to settle the bet at the price at which we intended to offer, and/or pursuant to the wording which was clearly intended to relate to, the relevant bet.
    • We reserve the right to withdraw any Odds Boosts and edit the respective odds on the enhanced price.
    • Unless stated in the Odds Boost, the bets refer to the next official event that the listed team/participant(s) are scheduled to participate in.
    • Markets can tend to fluctuate in price quite often which can sometimes lead to the Odds Boost price not representing any enhanced value in comparison to its original markets.

    1. Baseball
      • General Rules
        • These rules apply to Major League, all levels of Minor League, NCAA and World Baseball. World Baseball is defined as a league which is governed outside of the United States.
        • All wagers are graded based on the official results published by the relevant league’s governing body (e.g. Major League Baseball).
        • If a game does not start on the officially scheduled day (local time), as published by the governing body, due to a rain delay or other deferral, all wagers shall be void. If a game that has started is suspended, due to a rain delay or other deferral, and resumes within 36 hours of the originally scheduled start time (local time), then all wagers will stand. If a game starts, is then suspended, and resumes more than 36 hours after the originally scheduled start time (local time), all existing wagers will be void unless they have been determined prior to the game’s suspension.
        • If a game is halted and scheduled to resume more than 36 hours after the original scheduled start time (local time), all wagers shall be void unless they have been determined prior to the game’s suspension.
        • In the event of a shortened game, results are official after (and, unless otherwise stated, bets shall be settled subject to the completion of) 5 innings of play, or 4.5 innings should the home team be leading at the commencement of the bottom of the 5th innings (the “4.5 Innings Rule”). Once the visiting team has made 15 outs, should a game be called early and the home team is leading, the results of the game will be determined by the score at the time the game is called. Should a game be called early while it is tied or amid an inning in which the visiting team has taken the lead, the game becomes a “suspended game” and is handled according to the rules surrounding suspended games.
        • Unless otherwise specified, results will only be official after (and bets shall be settled subject to the completion of) a minimum of 9 innings’ play, or 8.5 innings should the home team be leading at the commencement of the bottom of the 9th inning (the “8.5 Innings Rule”).
        • For the purposes of live betting, the 8.5 Innings Rule shall automatically apply unless stated otherwise – e.g., in the section below entitled “Overview of Specific Baseball Markets” (which shall take precedence over this section). If a game is shortened due to a rain delay or other deferral, live betting markets which have been determined will stand (irrespective of the 8.5 Innings Rule or whether an official league result has been confirmed).
        • Extra innings, where applicable, count for settlement purposes.
        • In the case of a suspended playoff/post-season game, all bets will stand until the game is completed within 90 days of suspension.
        • Should a mercy rule be applied, for settlement purposes, markets (for both pre-match and live betting) will be settled according to the result as determined by the application of the mercy rule. For baseball games scheduled to be 7 innings, normal baseball rules will apply with all markets settled as per the official result published by the relevant league’s governing body and in accordance with the below listed rules:
          • Money Line bets will be settled as per the “4.5 Innings Rule”;
          • Bets on markets that are unequivocally determined will stand (example: bets on 1st inning total runs scored will remain settled as determined if the game gets called in the 3rd inning);
          • All other markets (including but not limited to Run Line and Total Runs) will be void if not already unequivocally determined, unless a minimum of 7 innings are played, or 6.5 innings should the home team be leading at the commencement of the bottom of the 7th inning.
          • The above listed rules will govern settlement of all scheduled 7 inning games, including any that are shortened after first pitch.

     

    • Action vs. Listed Pitchers
      • When wagering on baseball Money Lines, you may choose to apply one of the following methods to each wager:
      • Action: All Money Line wagers are defaulted to “Action” meaning all wagers struck will stand if a pitcher change occurs. Wagers will be honored at the odds at bet placement and settled as normal.
      • One Specified Pitcher (Home Listed/Away Listed): A wager on or against one Listed Pitcher, regardless of the other Listed Pitcher. If the Listed Pitcher does not start, the wager is “No Action” and will be refunded.
      • Both Specified Pitchers: A wager in which both Listed Pitchers must start the game. If both starting pitchers are not the ones listed on the wagering ticket, the wager will be deemed “No Action” and refunded.
      • All other game markets are considered “Action” and wagers will remain open regardless of any personnel change.
      • Listed Pitchers are not relevant to World Baseball markets and bets on such markets will stand regardless of whether any Listed Pitchers do in fact start. Should a game end in a tie, Money Line wagers will be graded as a push with all other markets settled as per the result.

     

    • Player Props
      • For all MLB player markets, wagers will be void as per below (unless explicitly stated in market specific rules):
      • Pitcher Markets: If the listed pitcher does not start the game.
      • Batter Markets (Hits, Runs, etc.): if the listed player does not record a plate appearance.
      • To Hit a Home Run & Home Run / Game Winner Parlay: Listed players must record at least 1 plate appearance for bets to stand. If listed players do not record a plate appearance, bets on that player will be void. Listed pitchers have no bearing on this market.
      • Result of Plate Appearance: Listed players must record the relevant plate appearance for bets to stand. If listed players do not record a plate appearance, bets on that player will be void. If a player is substituted out of the game between plate appearances, bets on plate appearances that have already occurred will stand. However, bets on future plate appearance markets will be voided. For settlement purposes, hit by pitches (HBPs) will be settled as Walk/HBP. A fielder’s choice, catcher’s interference, or reach on error will all be ruled as an “other outcome.” A pitch must be thrown in the plate appearance for bets to be action. If no pitch is thrown in the plate appearance (i.e., the pitching team elects to intentionally walk the batter before any pitches are thrown) bets on the market will be void. This shall not however impact other markets which are impacted by the result (i.e., the intentional walk results in an RBI for the batter).
      • To Hit First Home Run: Listed position players must record at least one plate appearance for bets to stand. If listed players do not record a plate appearance, bets on that player will be void. If a non-listed player is ruled the winner, bets on listed qualified players are action. All bets will be voided if no Home Runs are hit in the game.
      • To Hit Next Home Run: Listed position players must record at least one plate appearance for bets to stand. If listed players do not record a plate appearance, bets on that player will be void. Once a player has recorded a plate appearance, wagers made on that player for all subsequent indices (Player to Hit 3rd Home Run, 4th Home Run, etc.) will stand regardless of the number of plate appearances that player ultimately records in the game. In the event there is no “Next Home Run”, all bets placed on that index will be void. Example: Wagers placed on “Player to hit 4th Home Run” market will be void in a game where only 3 Home Runs are hit.
      • Player to Record a Hit Markets: Listed players must record at least one plate appearance for bets to stand. If listed players do not record a plate appearance, bets on that player will be void. Once a player has recorded a plate appearance, bets on all subsequent hits markets (2+ hits, 3+ hits, etc.) will stand regardless of the number of plate appearances that player ultimately records in the game.
      • To Record Total Bases: Total Bases are recorded through hits. They do not include walks, HBPs, reach on errors, or fielder’s choices.
      • Player Total Strikeouts: Listed Pitcher must start for bets to stand. If the opposing Listed Pitcher does not start, then bets will still stand.
      • Player Performance Parlays: For pitchers, the listed pitcher must start for bets to stand. Bets will stand regardless of a change in status to the opposing listed pitcher. For batters, the listed player must record at least 1 plate appearance for bets to stand. If listed players do not record a plate appearance, bets on that player will be void. A change to the status of either listed pitcher will have no bearing on the settlement of any batter-specific player parlay.
      • Result of First Pitch: Settled based on the first pitch thrown in the listed half inning. A change to the status of either listed pitcher, or to either line-up, will have no bearing on the settlement of this market. For settlement purposes, a reach on error, catcher’s interference, or a foul ball that results in an out will be ruled as an “other outcome.” Batted balls that result in the plate appearance ending (ex. hits/outs) will not be regarded as strikes for the purposes of settlement. If a pitcher or batter violation results in an automatic ball or strike to begin the at-bat, the market will be settled based off the outcome of the violation (e.g. if a pitcher violation results in an automatic ball to start the at-bat, ‘Ball’ will be settled as the winning selection).
      • Method of First Hit: Settled based on the method by which the first hit of the game (for either team) occurs. A change to the status of either listed pitcher will have no bearing on the settlement of this market. If a listed batter is not in the starting line-up, bets on that batter will be void.
      • Pitch Velocity: Pitch velocity markets will be settled according to official results as published by MLB’s Statcast.
      • Batted Ball Exit Velocity: Batted ball exit velocity markets will be settled according to official results as published by MLB’s Statcast.
      • Distance of Home Run: Distance of home run markets will be settled according to official results as published by MLB’s Statcast.

     

    • Futures Markets + Other Specials
      • Regular Season Win Totals: A team must play at least 98% of games originally scheduled (as of Opening Day of the regular season) for bets to stand, unless the outcome has previously been unequivocally determined.

          • Results are not official for betting purposes until verified by officials at the fighting venue. If for some reason official verification does not occur at the fighting venue, then (and only then) will reference will be made to www.boxrec.com for settlement purposes. Should an official or unofficial sanctioning body overturn a fight decision based on an appeal, suspension, lawsuit, drug testing result or any other fighter sanction, this will not be recognized for betting purposes.
          • Should a contest be postponed, bets will stand if the rescheduled event occurs within 48 hours. Otherwise, all bets in relation to the contest will be void.
          • In the event of a ‘no contest’ being declared, all bets will be made void, with the exception of selections where the outcome has already been unequivocally determined.
          • Should there be a substitution for one of the boxers, bets on the original contest will be void, except in a tournament based competition where the equivalent of a Tattersalls Rule 4 deduction may apply (see Prize Fighter below)
          • Should there be a change in the manner in which a contest is advertised (e.g. a contest changes from a title fight to a non-title fight) bets will stand.
          • Match Betting markets where no draw selection is offered will be made void if the match ends in a draw.
          • In fights where the scheduled number of rounds changes, all bets will stand unless the result would be automatically determined by the change in the number of rounds (in which case, such bets will be voided). For example, if a fight gets changed from a 12 to a 10 round fight, bets on rounds 11 and 12 will be void.

          • Notwithstanding the above rule, should, for any reason, the scheduled number of rounds be decreased before the commencement of the contest, all round by round bets on the dropped rounds will be void. Bets on all the remaining rounds will stand.
          • Where a contest finishes before the completion of the scheduled number of rounds and, for any reason, the winner is decided by the judges’ scorecards (technical decision/technical draw) then all round bets will be deemed losers.

        • Method of victory:

Technical knockouts (TKO) occur when a boxer is knocked down three times within the same round and the fight is stopped or where the referee steps in to stop the fight when it is decided that a fighter cannot safely continue. If a fighter fails to answer a bell for the next round then this will also be deemed a TKO. For betting purposes, KO/TKO options also include disqualification and retirement.

          • If the accidental injury / technical decision occurs during the first 4 rounds, all bets will be made void UNLESS the result of the relevant market has already been unequivocally determined or if the judges’ scorecards are used to determine an official winner at ringside.
          • If an intentional foul causes an injury and the injury results in the fight being stopped in a later round: (i) the injured boxer will be deemed to have won by technical decision if he is ahead on the scorecards and (ii) the fight will result in a ‘technical draw’ if the injured boxer is behind or even on the score cards (and, for settlement purposes, the result of the fight will be deemed to be a draw).
          • For betting purposes, betting on rounds or a group of rounds is for a fighter to win by KO, TKO, disqualification or due to the other fighter retiring during that round or group of rounds.

If the penalty try option is not offered, we will pay out, for “First Try” markets, on the next tryscorer following the penalty try (where the first try is a penalty try) and, for “Last Try” markets, on the tryscorer immediately preceding the penalty try (where the last try is a penalty try). For `Xth try scorer’ markets, if the penalty try option is not offered, we will void any bets placed on the Xth try to be scored by a particular player if that try is in fact a penalty try. If there is no try scored after the penalty try then “First Try” and “Last Try” markets will be void.
    • First Tryscorer Insurebet: If the player fails to score the first try but does score a try in the match then the bet stake will be returned. If a substitute is not on the field before the first try is scored then bets on that player will be void.
    • Position to Score First Try: In the event of a penalty try being the first try scored, we will pay out on the position of the next tryscorer for “Position to Score First Try” markets. For ‘Position to score xth Try’ markets, in the event of a penalty try, we will pay out on the position which scores the next try (e.g. if the first try scored in a match is a penalty try and the second try is scored by a ‘forward’, then a ‘forward’ will be deemed to have scored both the first and second tries). If there is no try scored after the penalty try then this market will be void.
    • To win in Extra Time: If there is no winner following extra time, dead heat rules will apply to bets on this market.
    • Tryscorer Matchbets / Kicker Matchbets / To Score the Most Points Matchbets: Both players must be in the starting 15 for bets to stand. If there is no ‘Tie’ or ‘Draw’ selection offered and the result is a tie then all bets will be void.
    • Best Kicking Percentage Matchbets / Kicker Matchbets / To Score the Most Points Matchbets: Bets will be void if both players do not attempt at least 1 placed kick at goal.
    • Player Total Points / Perfect Kicking record: Bets will be void if the selected player does not attempt at least 1 placed kick at goal.
    • Top Tryscorer / Top Team Tryscorer / Top Points Scorer: dead heat rules apply.

    • Head to Head: Any extra time will be counted for settlement purposes. In the result of a draw where no extra time is played, this market will be settled according to dead heat rules.
    • Man of the Match: for Rugby World Cup Man of the Match markets, the market will be settled based on the official ‘Man of the Match’ as determined by the Rugby World Cup official site. If the Rugby World Cup official site fails to declare an official Man of the Match for any reason, all bets will be void.

     

    • Rugby League Rules
    • Unless otherwise stated, all rugby league bets are settled on 80 minutes’ play plus any injury time.
    • All bets on NRL matches will be settled on the official declared result including any extra time, except ‘Match Betting, ‘Point Spread (Handicap) Betting, ‘Will There Be Extra Time?’, ‘Highest Scoring Half’ and ‘Half With Most Tries’ markets (which will be settled on the basis of 80 minutes’ play plus any injury time). In Point Spread (Handicap)/Line and Totals betting where the value selected is a whole number (e.g. 6.0), and the result lands on that number, then all wagers related to that line number will be refunded, and any such bet will be deemed an excluded leg for the purpose of any applicable parlay, which will be recalculated excluding that leg. The same rules apply for State of Origin and any other Australian Rugby League match where extra time is played.
    • If the result of an NRL match after extra time is a draw, then the Dead Heat Rule will apply to all bets where a winner has not been officially declared. All winning margin bets, including Dozen Winning Margins, will be deemed unsuccessful bets as neither team has won the match.
    • If a match is postponed, bets will stand until 48 hours from the original kick off (local time of match), after which time they will be void.
    • If the venue is changed from the one advertised, all bets on that match will still have action (unless it is also postponed to over 48 hours from scheduled kick off)
    • Any parlay bet reduced by an abandoned, postponed or re-arranged match will stand on the remaining selections.
    • If a match starts but is abandoned before its completion, all bets will be void unless an official result is declared by the applicable governing body. Where an official result has been declared by the official governing body, that official result will govern match and point spread (handicap) market settlement but all other markets will be void unless their result has already been determined at the point of abandonment (i.e. at the point of abandonment, it would not have been possible for the outcome of the bet to change had the match continued to its natural conclusion). By way of example, if 37 points have been scored at the time a match is abandoned: (i) a bet placed on 35 points or more to be scored would be settled as a winning bet, (ii) a bet placed on 30-35 points to be scored would be settled as a losing bet and (iii) a bet placed on 40-45 points to be scored would be void. In such circumstances, bets on last tryscorer / team to score last / team to score last try / last scoring play would all be void.
    • Outright Bets: all bets placed on outright markets will be settled on official tournament results. For betting purposes, any team which has points deducted due to breaches of rules and regulations will be deemed a starter. If, at the time a deduction of points is announced, the loss of points means that only one eventuality can occur then all bets on that competitor are void and monies will be returned. Any bets placed after a points deduction may have prices adjusted accordingly.
    • NRL & Super League Outright / Regular Season Outright / Top 2 / 4 / 8 Finish: All In Betting. Any Team which has points deducted due to breaches of rules and regulations will be deemed a starter for resulting purposes. Any loss of titles after the completion of the Grand Final will be deemed null and void and all bets will stand. All outright markets which state “Regular Season” (or similar) are deemed to mean the official standings of teams after all matches of the predetermined season are played and before any playoff matches have commenced.
    • NRL & Super League Wooden Spoon: This market is settled on the team which has the least wins for the season. A draw is considered as half a win. In the event of more than one team having the same number of wins, the outcome will be determined by the worst ‘for and against’ points total. Points deducted because of breaches of rules and regulations are excluded for resulting purposes. All In. Win Only.
    • To Miss Top 2 / 4 / 8: For betting purposes, any team which has points deducted due to breaches of rules and regulations will be deemed a starter. If, at the time a deduction of points is announced, the loss of points means that only one eventuality can occur, then all bets on that competitor will be void.
    • Tournament Tries/Points: Bets will apply to all playing time (including any extra time) in any match where an official result is declared.
    • Tryscorers: All bets will be refunded if they were placed on players not included in the official match day 17. All players that are named in the match day 17 will be considered ‘All In’ for all tryscorer markets (including “First Tryscorer” and “First Team Tryscorer” markets).
    • First/Last Tryscorer: In the event of a penalty try being the first / last try scored, we will pay out on the penalty try option if offered. If the penalty try option is not offered we pay on the next tryscorer for first try or preceding tryscorer for last try. For xth try betting if the penalty try option is not offered we pay on the next tryscorer i.e. if the second try scored in a match is a penalty try and the third try is scored by Paul Smith, then Paul Smith will be deemed the winner for the second and third tries. If there is no try scored after the penalty try then this market will be void.
    • First 2nd Half Tryscorer: If a player is included in his team’s matchday 17-man squad, all bets on that player will stand regardless of whether the player is on the field for the first 2nd half try or not.
    • To win in Extra Time: If there is no winner following extra time, dead heat rules will apply to bets on this market.
    • Tryscorer Matchbets / Kicker Matchbets / To Score the Most Points Matchbets: Both players must be in the starting 13 for bets to stand. If there is no ‘Tie’ or ‘Draw’ Selection offered and the result is a tie then all bets will be void.
    • Best Kicking Percentage Matchbets / Kicker Matchbets: Bets will be void if both players do not attempt at least 1 placed kick at goal.
    • Player Total Points / Perfect Kicking record: Bets will be void if a player does not attempt at least 1 placed kick at goal.
    • Statistics/Supercoach Markets: All bets on players not in the starting 13 will be void.

    1. Soccer
      • General Information
    • General Information
    • For soccer betting, the team listed first is the Home Team, unless the game takes place in a neutral venue. For settlement purposes, the first team listed will still be considered the Home Team in this case.
    • All general soccer bets will be settled in accordance with official league data.
    • For statistic related markets, the definitions provided within the “terminology” section will be used to determine the settlement of any bets which are placed on:
      • Shots/Shots on Goal Markets
      • Assists Markets
      • Tackles Markets
      • Cross Markets
    • FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right to settle the above markets in accordance with the definitions if there are disputes on official league data.
    • All bets on soccer are automatically settled on the basis of 90 minutes play unless otherwise stated for that particular market. 90 minutes play includes time added on by referee for stoppages. The only exceptions are for matches that are played for a lesser duration (e.g. 60, 70 or 80) as agreed by the laws of the competition in which they are competing or agreed by both sides prior to kick-off. In such cases, if the match is played in the traditional format of two halves, all bets will be settled at the end of the agreed game length which includes time added on by the referee for stoppages whether the game length is advertised by FanDuel Sportsbook or not. If the game is played in an unusual format (e.g. 3 or 4 periods) then all half-time markets will be voided but all other markets will be settled on the basis of the score at the end of the match (including any time added on by the referee for stoppages).
    • Where a bet is accepted on a match where no prices are on offer then that selection will be treated as a non-runner, but the remainder of any parlay bet will stand provided there are not fewer than the stipulated minimum number of matches in the bet.
    • Settlement will be at the price prevailing at the time the bet was placed and confirmed. Dates and kick-off times of matches shown on our website are for guidance purposes only. Bets will be accepted up until the advertised kick-off time.
    • If a parlay is reduced by non-runners the bet will stand with the reduced number of legs.
    • FanDuel Sportsbook reserves the right to void or stand 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.
    • There is a small possibility that we will inadvertently offer soccer bets in respect of which it is impossible for the outcome to occur (for example, we continue to offer bets on a player to be the first goal scorer in a match after that player has been substituted). While we have implemented systems which aim to prevent this from occurring, in the small number of circumstances where it does, we will void the bets in question (and return the relevant stakes to customers accordingly).
    • For head to head markets where there is a draw/tie option offered. If the market ends in a tie, bets on all other selections will be losers.

     

     

    • VAR
    • To the extent that a video assistant referee (“VAR”) is consulted, the event which led to the referral will, for the purposes of these rules, be deemed to have occurred at the actual time of its occurrence (rather than the time on which the relevant referral, or decision, was made).
    • Where we have settled a bet and, due to a subsequent VAR decision, it becomes apparent that such settlement was inaccurate, we reserve the right to reverse such settlement (provided that the VAR decision occurred prior to the conclusion of the match or other timeframe relating to the bet).
    • Bets which are placed between the occurrence of an incident which leads to a VAR review and the related VAR decision will be deemed void unless: (i) the VAR review (and subsequent decision) did not ultimately alter the decision made by the on-field officials or (ii) the VAR review (and subsequent decision) altered the decision made by the on-field officials but did not have any material influence on the bet(s) in question. All bets which were not materially influenced by the VAR review (and subsequent decision) will stand.
    • In order to eliminate any doubt, we will consider the VAR as having been used if this is understood from the referee’s gestures (e.g. hand gestures or stopping the match to review the incident themselves) and/or VAR usage is confirmed by the match report issued by the official governing body who is ultimately responsible for oversight of the applicable match. In cases where it is unclear whether the VAR has been used due to missing TV coverage and/or conflicting reports, FanDuel Sportsbook will settle the bets based on the information acquired from feed providers and generally reputable online sources (acting reasonably).

     

     

    • Abandoned, Postponed, Venue Changed or Unplayed Matches
    • If a match is postponed, all undetermined bets will be voided as long as the match does not start before 23:59 local time (or if FanDuel Sportsbook believes that a match will not have started by such time) on its scheduled date.
    • Fixtures that are rearranged before the scheduled kick off date will not be regarded as postponements and all bets will stand, as long as the rescheduled date is within 72 hours of the original kick off time.
    • If the venue of a match is other than what is indicated on our website, the bet will stand provided the match has not been switched to the opponent’s ground, in which case the match will be declared void. Notwithstanding this rule, in major international tournaments (e.g. World Cup, European Championships), all venues will be deemed neutral. If the scheduled venue of a match is changed, including if the venue changes to a new venue in a different country, all bets will stand.
    • If a match starts but is later abandoned, all undetermined bets will be voided as long as the match is not played to a finish before midnight local time on its scheduled date.

     

     

    • Late Bets
    • In relation to soccer markets that are scheduled to be turned in-play, FanDuel Sportsbook aims to use its reasonable endeavors to turn such markets in-play at kick-off and to suspend such markets on the occurrence of a Material Event (see definition of “Material Event” below). However, FanDuel Sportsbook does not guarantee that markets will be suspended and turned in-play at kick-off.
    • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but FanDuel Sportsbook fails to suspend the market at kick-off and the market is not turned in-play at any time during the match, all bets placed after the scheduled time of the kick-off will be void UNLESS it can be established that the bet was actually placed before the actual time of kick-off.
    • If a market is scheduled to be turned in-play but FanDuel Sportsbook fails to suspend the market at kick-off, but the market is turned in-play at a later time during the match, all bets placed after the scheduled time of the kick-off will stand. However, the price may be adjusted by FanDuel Sportsbook and the bets may be settled in accordance with the correct price at the time on which the relevant bet was placed (such price to be determined by FanDuel Sportsbook, acting reasonably).
    • For the purpose of this rule, a ”Material Event” shall mean a goal being scored, a penalty being awarded, a player being sent off, or a VAR decision.

     

     

    • Terminology
    • “Normal Time” refers to the full length of a game (usually 90 mins, including time added on by the referee for stoppages) and excludes any extra time or penalty shootout.
    • Offside is awarded to the player deemed to be in an offside position where a free kick is awarded. If two or more players are in an offside position when the pass is played, the player considered to be most active and trying to play the ball is given offside.
    • With respect to “Tackles”, a tackle is defined as where a player connects with the ball in a ground challenge where he successfully takes the ball away from the player in possession.
    • The tackled player must clearly be in possession of the ball before the tackle is made.
    • A tackle won is deemed to be where the tackler or one of his team-mates regains possession as a result of the challenge, or that the ball goes out of play and is “safe”.
    • A tackle lost is where a tackle is made but the ball goes to an opposition player.
    • Both are deemed as successful tackles, however the outcome of the tackle (won or lost) is different based on where the ball goes after the tackle.
    • It is not a tackle, when a player cuts out a pass by any means.
    • Missed Tackles is where a player attempts to challenge for the ball and does not make it – it is calculated by adding fouls with an attempted tackle qualifier to the number of times a player is beaten by a dribble (challenge lost).
    • Clearance is a defensive action where a player kicks the ball away from his own goal with no intended recipient.
    • Interception is where a player reads an opponent’s pass and intercepts the ball by moving into the line of the intended pass.
    • Blocked pass is where a player tries to cut out an opposition pass by any means. Similar to an interception except there is much less reading of the pass.
    • Block is where a player blocks a shot on target from an opposing player.
    • Assists can be defined as the final touch (pass, pass-cum-shot or any other touch) leading to the recipient of the ball scoring a goal. If the final touch (as defined in bold, above) is deflected by an opposition player, the initiator is only given a goal assist if the receiving player was likely to receive the ball without the deflection having taken place. Own goals, directly taken free kicks, direct corner goals and penalties do not get an assist awarded.
    • Cards are collected as yellow, second yellow or red card. Where possible, cards are cross checked against official (referee) reports to match the official statistics, unless these are clearly incorrect.
    • Crosses can be defined as any Intentional played ball from a wide position intending to reach a teammate in a specific area in front of the goal.
    • A Shot is defined as any goal attempt.
    • A Shot on target is defined as any goal attempt that a) goes into the net regardless of intent – for Goals only b) is a clear attempt to score that would have gone into the goal but for being saved by goalkeeper or is stopped by a player who is the last man with the goalkeeper having no chance of preventing the goal (last line block). Shots directly hitting the frame of the goal are not counted as shots on target unless the ball goes in and is awarded as a goal. Shots blocked by another player, who is not the last man, are not counted as shots on target.
    • Foul conceded: A foul conceded is defined as any infringement that is penalized as foul play by a referee. Offsides are not given as a foul conceded.

     

     

    • Overview of Specific Markets
    • Goalscorer Markets
    • First/Last Goalscorer
      • Own goals do not count for settlement of first/last goalscorer bets. If any goal is an own goal, the result of the following goalscorer market will count for the settlement of the original one – e.g. second goal of the game is an own goal. The scorer of the third goal will be settled as the winner for both the second goalscorer and third goalscorer markets. If the last goal of the game is an own goal, then the second last goal of the game will be considered the winner for the Last Goalscorer market.
      • Bets taken on first goalscorer will be void if that player does not take part in the game or if they come on after the first goal is scored.
      • Every effort is made to quote first/last player to score odds for all possible players. However, odds for other players are available on request and will count as winners if they score the first/last goal even if they are not named in our lists.
      • Bets on last goalscorer will be void if that player does not take part in the game or does not come on as a substitute. In the event of a dispute over the award of a goal for first/last goalscorer or scorer special purposes, settlement will be in accordance with the result given by governing body of that league within 24 hours of the final whistle. Any subsequent changes to the result will be ignored for settlement purposes.
    • Anytime Goalscorer
      • A player will be considered to be a runner and bets will stand should the player play any part in the match.
      • Goals scored in normal time only count for this market. Goals scored in extra time or in a penalty shoot-out do not count.

    • Assist Markets
    • First & Anytime assists
      • As determined by FanDuel’s settlement guidelines, an assist is defined by the final touch (pass, pass-come-shot or any other touch) leading to the recipient of the ball scoring a goal.
      • If the final touch (as defined above) is deflected by an opposition player, the initiator is only given an assist if the receiving player was the likely intended destination of the touch before the deflection.
      • If a shot on goal is blocked by an opposition player, is saved by a goalkeeper, or hits the woodwork, and a goal is scored directly from the rebound, then an assist is awarded, unless the resulting goal is scored by the same player who had the initial shot, in which case no assist is awarded.
      • If a player shoots or passes the ball and forces an opposing player to put the ball in their own net (Own Goal), then an assist is awarded to the attacking player.
      • For a penalty or a free-kick, the player winning the penalty or free-kick (by being fouled or causing a handball) is awarded an assist if a goal is directly scored, but not if they take it themselves, in which case no assist is awarded.
      • Bets taken on first assist will be void if that player does not take part in the game or if he comes on after the first goal is scored (and where an assist is awarded for that goal).
      • For the first assist market only, if a player enters the field of play after the first goal is scored (and where an assist is awarded for that goal), the bet will be voided. If a player is sent off or substituted before the first goal is scored (and where an assist is awarded for that goal) bets on that selection are deemed as losers.

     

     

    • Spread Betting (3-way)
    • For the purpose of deciding results on spread betting, the actual score of the match (Team A v Team B) is adjusted for the spread. If Team A or Team B are selected, then the spread adjustment applies to the goals scored by that team. If the draw is selected then the spread adjustment applies to Team A.
    • For example, spread markets are shown as:
      • Team A (-1)
      • 7/2 Draw (-1) 3/1
      • Team B (+1) 8/15
      • If Team A win by 2 or more goals then all bets on Team A (-1) will be winners. Bets on the Draw (-1) and Team B (+1) will be losers. (e.g., Team A win 2-0 so becomes Team A 1-0 after the -1 adjustment so Team A are the spread winners.)
      • If Team A win by exactly 1 goal, then all bets on Draw (-1) will be winners. Bets on Team A (-1) and Team B (+1) will be losers (e.g., Team A 1-0 becomes 0-0 after the -1 adjustment to the home team so it’s a spread draw)
      • If the match ends in a draw or Team B win by any number of goals, then all bets on Team B (+1) will be winners. Bets on Draw(-1) and Team A (-1) will be losers. (e.g., Team A 1-1 Team B becomes Team A 1-2 Team B after the +1 adjustment to Team B so Team B are the spread winners).

      • Settlement in all cases will use the time of the event supplied to us by our data provider.
      • If none of the stated outcomes occur during the stated period, all bets will be settled as losing bets.
      • For the ‘goal’ selection, a goal will be deemed to have been scored the moment the ball completely crosses the goal-line within the confines of the goal posts, provided that the referee ultimately awards the goal. For example, if the ball completely crosses the goal-line but the goal is not awarded because, for example a foul occurred before the ball crossed the line or because the referee did not believe that the ball did cross the line, then a goal will not be deemed to have been scored. Own goals scored will count towards settlement of this market.
      • For the ‘free kick’ selection, a free-kick will be deemed to have been awarded the moment the referee and or assistant referee signal any of the following: A direct free-kick following a foul, an indirect free-kick following a foul or offside offense but not a penalty kick, corner or drop ball.
      • Direct Free Kick for Goals / Shots – direct free kick shots are any attempts created directly from the free kick itself.
      • For the ‘corner’ selection, a corner will be deemed to have been awarded the moment the referee and or assistant referee signal for the award of a corner.
      • For the ‘goal kick’ selection, a goal kick is awarded and timed according to when it was indicated by the referee and/or assistant referees. A kick out from the hands of the goalkeeper or a free kick taken by the goalkeeper is not a goal-kick.
      • For the ‘throw in’ selection, a throw in will be deemed to have been awarded the moment the referee and or assistant referee signal the award of the throw in.
    • X – Y Minute Markets
      • “Goal Scored X – Y” markets are defined as betting on whether there will be a goal scored by one of the teams within the time period X – Y (inclusive) of the event’s match clock. Only goals scored within that timeframe will count for settlement.
      • “Corner Awarded X – Y” markets are defined as betting on whether there will be a corner awarded to one of the teams within the time period X – Y (inclusive) of the event’s match clock. Only corners taken within that timeframe will count for settlement.

     

     

    • Number of Goals/Corners
    • These are known as special spreads.
    • Bets on number of goals include own goals.
    • In the event of an abandoned match all bets on special spreads will be void unless the maximum quote has been obtained. For example, should a customer back 12 or more corners in a match and that match is abandoned when 13 corners have already been taken then that bet is a winner with all other bets on corners losers.
    • Bets on ‘number of corners’ refers to corners taken and not corners awarded.

     

     

    • Corner Markets
    • Bets on number of corners refers to number of corners taken and not corners awarded.
    • For time of corner markets, the time that the corner is actually taken will count and not the time it was awarded.
    • For “Odd or Even” corner markets, 0 is counted as an even number.
    • Multi Corners refers to number of 1st half corners multiplied by number of 2nd half corners.
    • Team Multi Corners refers to number of 1st half team corners multiplied by number of 2nd half team corners.
    • Markets for “Race to X Corners” will be settled on whatever team reaches “X” corners first. E.g. Race to 3 Corners will be settled on the first team to take 3 corners in the match.

     

    • Shots on Target
    • For any bets involving a given player to achieve a number of shots on target, the final determination of the number of shots on target will be made by FanDuel Sportsbook, using the definitions below. A shot on target is defined as any goal attempt that:
    • Goes into the net regardless of intent; or
      • Is a clear attempt to score that would have gone into the net but for being saved by the goalkeeper or is stopped by a player who is the last-man with the goalkeeper having no chance of preventing the goal (last line block).
      • Shots directly hitting the frame of the goal are not counted as shots on target, unless the ball goes in and is awarded as a goal.
    • Shots blocked by another player, who is not the last-man, are not counted as shots on target.
    • All shots on target bets are settled on the basis of 90 minutes’ play (plus injury time) unless otherwise stated.
    • For any player shots/shots on target bets, all bets placed on players that do not take part in the match will be void. Players will be deemed a participant should they enter the game at any point in 90 minutes play plus injury time.
    • For combined shots on target markets, the bet will be void if any player named in the selection plays no part in the match, regardless of the overall outcome.

     

     

    • Player in Each Half Rules
    • You are betting on a nominated player to achieve the stated stipulation in both the first half and second half.
    • If the nominated player achieves the stated stipulation in the selection, then the selection will be settled as a winner (e.g. if the selection Is Harry Kane to have 1 or more assists in each half and he has an assist in the first half and an assist in the second half, this would be settled as a winner).
    • If the nominated player plays no part in the first half of the match, or indeed any part of the match, then the selection is void (e.g. if the selection is Harry Kane to score 1 or more goals in both halves and Harry Kane is a substitute, but comes on during or after half time, or plays no part whatsoever, the selection would be void).
    • If the nominated player plays any part of the first half, and fails to achieve the stated first half stipulation, then the selection is a loser regardless of the duration of their participation in either the first or second half (e.g. if the selection is Harry Kane to have 1 or more shots on target in each half, and he starts the match/comes on during the first half and fails to register a shot on target during the first half, this selection will be a loser regardless of his participation in the second half).
    • If the nominated player plays any part of the first half, and does achieve the stated stipulation but is subsequently withdrawn before or during half time and plays no part in the second half, then this selection will be void (e.g. if the selection is Harry Kane to score 1 or more goals in each half & assist 1 or more goals in each half, and he scores AND assists in the first half but is withdrawn before or during half time i.e. plays no part in the second half, then the selection is void. In this instance however, if he scored but didn’t assist in the first half, the selection would be a loser, as it marries up with the point above).

     

     

    • Extra Time Markets
    • Extra time markets refer only to the 30 minute period of extra time plus any time added by the referee for stoppages. For settlement purposes, this is essentially treated as a new game, and stats (goals, corners etc.) start at zero here. Goals scored in Penalty shootout do not count for settlement purposes.

     

     

    • Penalty Shootout Markets
    • Refers to results of penalty shootout only. Penalties scored in normal time or extra time do not count here.

     

     

    • Top X Finish
    • Refers to team finishing in top X positions of league table in regular season play, excluding any subsequent playoff matches.

     

     

    • Multiple Trophies
    • Refers to trophies won by a specific team in a given season. Must win all listed trophies in selection to win.

     

     

    • Relegation
    • If a team is relegated from a league because, at the end of a season, it has finished within the relegation positions which are relevant to that league, bets on that team to be relegated will be settled as winning bets. If a team is otherwise disqualified, thrown out or removed from a league (i.e. in circumstances other than those where it has finished the season within the relevant relegation positions): (i) if such team is disqualified, thrown out or removed from the league before the relevant season has started, all bets on the affected market will be void (and a new market will subsequently be loaded) and (ii) if such team is disqualified, thrown out or removed from the league after the relevant season has started (or a determination is made by the applicable governing body, during the season, that the team will be thrown out or removed from the league following the season’s conclusion), all bets on the affected team will be void. For the avoidance of doubt, if a points deduction is imposed on a team such that it finishes the season within the relegation places which are relevant to the applicable league, bets on that team to be relegated will be settled as winning bets.

     

     

    • Stages of Elimination
    • Stage of Elimination refers to the round of the tournament at which a team is eliminated. E.g. if a team is defeated in the quarter final, the “Quarter Final” selection would be the winner.

     

     

    • Asian Handicaps
    • Asian Handicaps
      • An Asian handicap is a market where a handicap is applied to the match in order to make the prices more equal.
      • The favorite in a match will have a negative handicap represented with a (-) symbol and will have to win by more goals than the handicap in order to be a winner.
      • The outsider in the match will receive a positive handicap represented with a (+) symbol which will be added to the final score.
      • The handicap will be added to one side only.
      • Half-time Asian handicap markets will be settled on the half-time result.
    • There are three types of Asian handicap:
      • (i) Whole ball handicap (e.g. Team A -0, Team A -1.0, Team A -2.0)
        • The handicap is applied to the final result of the match and the team with the most goals after the handicap has been applied will be the winner. If the number of goals for each team are level after the handicap has been applied, it will result in a push with the stake being returned.
        • Example: Team A -2.0, Team B +2.0
          • If Team A win by three or more goals then all bets on Team A will be winners and bets on Team B will be losers.
          • If Team A win by exactly two goals then all bets on the market will be pushed and the bet stake returned on both sides.
          • If Team A win by exactly one goal, the match ends in a draw or Team B win the match then all bets on Team B will be winners and bets on Team A will be losers.
        • (ii) Half ball handicaps (e.g. Team A -0.5, Team A -1.5, Team A -2.5)
          • The handicap is applied to the final result of the match and the team with the most goals after the handicap has been applied will be the winner.
          • Example: Team A -1.5, Team B +1.5
            • If Team A win by two or more goals then all bets on Team A will be winners and bets on Team B will be losers.
            • If Team A win by exactly one goal, the match ends in a draw or Team B win the match then all bets on Team B will be winners and bets on Team A will be losers.
          • (iii) Split ball handicaps (e.g. Team A -0 & -0.5, Team A -0.5 & -1.0, Team A -1.0 & -1.5)
            • A split ball handicap is where the level of favoritism is between a half ball and a whole ball. In this case, your stake is being split equally between the whole ball and half ball handicaps.
            • Example: Team A -1.0 & -1.5, Team B +1.0 & +1.5
              • If you place a $100 bet on Team A -1.0 & -1.5 then your bet is split into two $50 bets. The first bet is on the Whole Ball Handicap (Team A -1.0) and the second bet is on the Half Ball Handicap (Team A -1.5).
              • If Team A win by two or more goals then all bets on Team A will be winners and bets on Team B will be losers.
              • If Team A Win by exactly one goal then the stake on Team A -1.0 will be refunded and the stake on Team A -1.5 will be a loser. The stake on Team B +1.0 will be refunded and the stake on Team B +1.5 will be a winner.
              • If the match ends in a draw or Team B win the match then all bets on Team B will be winners and bets on Team A will be losers.

    • Pre-Match Combos/Specials
    • The rules in this sub-section apply specifically to the settlement of any soccer bets which are placed via Pre-Match Combo markets. All other settlement rules which are included in this “Soccer Rules” section or elsewhere on this website (including in FanDuel Sportsbook’s Rules and Regulations) will also apply to the settlement of Pre-Match Combo bets unless they contradict, or conflict with, those included in this sub-section (in which case, the rules in this sub-section shall take precedence).
    • All Pre-Match Combo bets are settled on the basis of 90 minutes’ play (plus injury time) unless otherwise stated on our website or below. Extra time and penalties will not count, except when the phrases ‘To Qualify’, ‘Lift The Trophy’ or ‘Win The Tie’ are quoted. For all parlay bets which involve one or more bets including such phrases, the remaining bets (i.e. which do not include such phrases) will be settled on the basis of 90 minutes’ play (plus injury time) unless stated otherwise.
    • If any player who forms part of a Pre-Match Combo bet does not take any part in the relevant match (or does not fulfil the conditions of the bet), then the whole Pre-Match Combo bet shall be voided. This will apply in all cases regardless if any/all of the remaining components win or lose.
    • Any dubious goals will be awarded according to the final determination of the Press Association.
    • Own goals do not count towards any player totals. If an own goal is scored by a player on Team A, the goal will be added to Team B’s total goals as per normal rules.
    • For Pre-Match Combo bets which have been placed on the method of the first (or any other) goal (e.g. header, shot from outside the penalty area etc.), any own goals will be disregarded (i.e. for the purposes of such any such bets, own goals will be deemed not to have occurred). For example, if you have placed a Pre-Match Combo bet on the first goal to be scored via a header, your bet will be successful if: (i) the first goal was an own goal which came off a player’s knee and (ii) the second goal was an ordinary goal scored via a header.
    • Any Pre-Match Combo bets involving woodwork to be hit require that the ball hits the frame of the goal. Any shot that hits the frame multiple times (e.g. bar and left post) only count as hitting the woodwork once. Hit woodwork is always collected for the attacking team (and the player, who performed the last action), even when the ball hits the frame coming from a defensive back pass.
    • For Pre-Match Combo bets on a player NOT to score, the player in question MUST start the match or the applicable bet(s) shall be voided.
    • Any Pre-Match Combo Bets on the last goalscorer of a match will be void if that match is abandoned.
    • For Pre-Match Combo bets involving goal kicks, only goal kicks which are actually taken will count towards the cumulative goal kick count (i.e. any goal kicks which are awarded but not taken will not count).
    • For Pre-Match Combo bets involving two or more occurrences, those occurrences must take place at separate times for the Pre-Match Combo bet to be successful. For example, a Pre Match Combo bet on a header to be scored and a goal to be scored from outside the penalty area will only be successful if a goal is scored via a header and separate goal is scored from outside the penalty area.
    • Any Pre-Match Combo bets involving free-kick goals must be scored directly from a free-kick. For the avoidance of doubt, a goal will be deemed to have been scored directly from a free kick if the individual who takes the free kick is awarded the applicable goal (even if the ball touched another player before it crossed the goal line). Penalties do not count as free kicks.
    • For any Pre-Match Combo bets involving a given player to achieve a number of shots on target, the final determination of the number of shots on target will be made by FanDuel Sportsbook, using official data (where applicable) and the definitions within the terminology section.
    • Any Pre-Match Combo bets involving total passes, total player passes or total possession will be determined in accordance with the final determination of the official website of the relevant competition’s governing body.
    • Pass shall mean any intentional played ball from one player to another. Passes include open play passes, goal kicks, corners and free kicks played as pass – but exclude crosses, keeper throws and throw-ins.
    • For any Pre-Match Combo bets involving corners, only corners that are actually taken will count. If a corner is re-taken, it will only count as one corner.
    • For any Pre-Match Combo bets relating to any competition long specials, in the event of one or more matches not being played, any selections that require an event (goal, corner, etc.) to occur in each match will be settled at a reduced price in line with the actual number of matches that were played.
    • For any Pre-Match Combo bets relating to any specials involving players who play no part in the competition, these will be void.
    • Where an obvious pricing error has occurred, we reserve the right to cancel any Pre-Match Combo bets placed at the incorrect price (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the Pre-Match Combo bet to be re-placed at the correct price).
    • For any obvious wording errors, we reserve the right to cancel any Pre-Match Combo bets placed on that selection (and, in such circumstances, we will offer the Pre-Match Combo bet to be re-placed with the correct wording).
    • Any Pre-Match Combo Bets requiring 2 teams to score in each half or to score 2+ or 3+ goals require each named team to score 2+, 3+ or in each half as appropriate.

     

    1. Surfing**
    • Stakes will be refunded on surfers withdrawn prior to the start of an event. All wagers void if there’s a venue change or delay of 10+ days.   Wagers are paid on official result stated by the governing body. Tournament cancellation will result in all wagers being void and wagers will be refunded. Affected parlays will be recalculated excluding that event or leg.

     

    1. Swimming**
    • Where there is a presentation ceremony, markets will be settled on the official result of the relevant governing body at the time of the ceremony, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result.
    • If there is no presentation ceremony, outcomes will be determined in accordance with the official result of the relevant governing body, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result.
    • Overall winner markets relate to the winner of the overall event and not for individual qualifiers or heats. If there is a presentation ceremony, markets will be settled on the official result of the relevant governing body at the time of the ceremony, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result. However, as a customer courtesy we may choose to settle prior to official publication of results.

     

    1. Table Tennis**
    • In the event of a table tennis game not taking place or begins and does not finish, bets on the game which have not already been unconditionally determined are declared void.
    • In the event a game is not decided competitively, for example a player is given a walkover, bets on this game are declared void.
    • If a player or team withdraw prior to the start of an event, stakes will be refunded. Payouts on events where participants have withdrawn are subject to deductions to reflect the reduced number of participants.
    • Bets are declared void in the event of a stated player being replaced.
    • Official score sheets are used for the settlement of all bets. Where it is found that the official score sheet is clearly incorrect, FanDuel Sportsbook may use its own recorded statistics for settlement purposes.
    • Players who are awarded at the podium are declared the event winner for settlement purposes. Any subsequent disqualifications will not overturn the original settlement.

     

    1. Tennis
    • If a player or pairing retires or is disqualified in an ATP/WTA/Challenger Tour/Grand Slam/Davis Cup/Fed Cup/ATP Cup Match: (i) all match bets (i.e. bets placed on the winner of a given match) will be voided if the retirement/disqualification occurs prior to the conclusion of the first set and (ii) if the retirement/disqualification occurs following the conclusion of the first set, the player or pairing progressing to the next round (or winning the tournament in the case of a final) will, for the purpose of any match bets, be deemed the winner but match bets placed on the retiring player or pairing will be voided (and stakes in respect of those bets refunded accordingly). Bets on all other tournaments or matches (such as ITF or exhibition matches) and bets on other markets (i.e. other than match betting markets) will be voided where a player or pairing retires or is disqualified (regardless of whether the retirement occurs during or following the first set) unless, in the case of bets on other markets, the outcome of the bet had been unequivocally determined prior to the time of the retirement/disqualification (in which case, the bet shall stand and shall be settled accordingly).
    • All tennis bets (including any specials or statistics-based bets) will be settled in accordance with the official website of each tournament’s governing body. Please note that some tennis matches will have differing match formats (i.e. 4 Game Sets, Championship Tie Break etc.). It is solely the customer’s responsibility to understand the formatting of a match before placing a bet. FanDuel Sportsbook will not be liable for any erroneous bets made under the assumption that a match would use a certain format.
    • In the case of any settlement disputes, FanDuel Sportsbook’s decision is final.
    • In the event of a change in the number of sets (or games per set) to be played, bets for match betting markets and “To Win First Set” markets will stand (save where the number of sets is reduced to one from a higher number of sets, in which case such markets will be voided). All other markets will be void. Where the format of the final set is changed (e.g. the number of games to be played in that set is changed) but the number of sets to be played remains the same, bets for match betting markets will stand.
    • In the event of a tennis event not taking place or if a player is given a walkover, bets on the event are deemed void (in this context, “event” refers to a single match-up between players, rather than the tournament itself).
    • In the event of a change to any of the following, all bets will stand:
      • a change in court type (indoor to outdoor or vice versa)
      • a change of playing surface (either before or during a match)
      • a change of venue
      • a change to the scheduling which affects the time or date of a match.
    • Where a player, pairing or team does not participate in a tournament (i.e. they are withdrawn prior to the start of their first match), all bets (including outright, quarter or special bets) involving that player, pairing or team will be voided and stakes will be refunded accordingly.
    • A tournament must be completed in full for all markets relating to the outcome to stand. This includes: Name The Finalists, To Reach/Not to Reach Xth Round, Big Guns, Stage of Elimination or any tournament specials. For the Stage of Elimination and Not to Reach the Final markets, a player must play at least one point during the tournament for bets to stand.
    • Total Games/Point Spread (Handicap) related markets: For the purposes of such markets, a tie-break is counted as one game. Forfeited points or games will count for final settlement purposes.
    • Champions Tie Breaks: In some competitions, matches that reach one set all are decided by a Champions tie-break.
      • If a match is decided by a Champions tie-break then the Champions tie-break will be considered to be the third set.
      • Where, for a match involving a champions’ tie break, we erroneously accept bets on the winner of a specified game in the final set, on the total number of games in such set or on handicap markets relating to such set (or similar), the bets in question will be void.
      • For the purpose of bets taken relating to Total Games market or Game Handicaps market for the match, the champions tie-break will be considered to be one game.
      • A Champions tie-break will not count towards any ‘Will there be a Tie-Break’ markets and will not be treated as a tie-break for any markets involving the occurrence of a number of tie-breaks.
    • Game or Point related markets: If the wrong player has been set as the server for any individual game (Current or Next Game) then all markets relating to the outcome of that specific game will be void, regardless of the result. In the event of a game not being completed, all bets on the game will be void with the exception of Game to Deuce if the result has already been determined.
    • Games / Alternative Games / Exact Games Won Margin: These markets are resulted on the absolute difference in total games won by player A and total games won by player B. For example, if Player A wins 17 games and Player B wins 19 games during the match, the market will be settled based on the absolute difference (which is 2).
    • Aces / Double Fault related markets: The match must be completed for bets to stand, except in the case of the first ace or first double fault markets. These markets will be settled on the basis of official scoring providers or official tournament websites (and in the event of any discrepancies between data of official scoring providers and that of tournament websites, the data of tournament websites will take precedence). Notwithstanding the foregoing, for ace/double fault related markets:
      • ITF matches will be settled on the basis of data from Sportradar and the tournament website of the ITF (and, in the event of any discrepancy, the data of the tournament website of the ITF will take precedence); and
      • ATP and WTA matches will be settled on the basis of data from IMG and the tournament websites of ATP/WTA (and, in the event of any discrepancy, the data of the tournament websites of the ATP/WTA, as applicable, will take precedence).
    • Where a handicap is attributed to an entire market (e.g. the market is entitled “To Win – 1.5 sets)” and there is no handicap attributed to any individual selection within that market, the relevant handicap will be applied to each first named selection. For example, if a market is entitled “To Win – 1.5 sets” and one of the selections within the market is “Federer V Nadal”, if the final score of the match is “Federer 3 sets, Nadal 2 sets”, that selection will be settled as if it the final score had been “Federer 1.5 sets, Nadal 2 sets” (i.e. any bets on Federer will be settled as losing bets and any bets on Nadal will be settled as winning bets). Unless otherwise stated in the name/heading of a market or selection, totals/handicaps apply to the overall match (rather than to sets or games).
    • Due to possible delays or inaccuracies, the FanDuel LIVE scoreboard may not be reflective of actual LIVE scores and therefore should not be solely relied upon in determining whether to place a bet or not.

     

    1. Volleyball**
    • In the event of a match starting but not being completed then all markets will be void, unless an official result is declared, in which case all bets will stand.
    • The name/heading of a competition amounts to evidence of what a bet refers to. For example, if you place a bet on “Italy vs Brazil” under the competition name/heading U20 World Cup, the bet will apply to the match between Italy and Brazil which is part of the U20 World Cup.
    • In case of a match being cancelled or postponed to after midnight (local time) on the scheduled start date, all bets will be voided.
    • All markets will be settled with the final result by volleyball rules. The only exceptions are for matches that are agreed by the laws of the competition in which they are competing or agreed by both sides prior to kick-off. In such cases, all bets will be settled at the end of the agreed rules.
    • For competitions whereby a golden set is played to determine which team/player progresses, the golden set will not count towards settlement of an individual match. Golden Set will only apply to tournament/Outright Betting.

     

    1. Winter Sports (which may include, amongst others, Alpine Skiing, Biathlon, Cross-Country Skiing and Ski-Jumping)**
    • Participants must pass the starting line/gate in order for bets to stand otherwise bets will be voided and stakes returned.
    • Where there is a presentation ceremony, markets will be settled on the official result of the relevant governing body at the time of the ceremony, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result.
    • If there is no presentation ceremony, outcomes will be determined in accordance with the official result of the relevant governing body, regardless of any subsequent disqualification or amendment to the result.
    • If an event is abandoned, postponed or cancelled, all bets will be void unless the event is completed at the same venue within 48 hours of the official scheduled completion date; or a result is ‘called’ by the relevant governing body.
    • FanDuel Sportsbook General Rules will apply for ‘match bets’. However in respect of “Nordic Combined” if all competitors involved in the match bet do not start both sections of the event (ski jumping and cross country) then bets will be void.
