If your selection has been postponed it will likely be void. For UK competitions and matches televised live in the UK, if the match is confirmed to take place within 48 hours of the original kick-off time all bets on the match will stand, unless:
- Confirmation of the rescheduled start time is not received within 3 hours of the original time
- If the match does not take place within 48 hours of the original kick-off time
- If you have a postponed event in your accumulator, the selection will be void and not be counted in the bet settlement. For example, if an event is void in a 7-fold accumulator your bet will drop down to a 6-fold accumulator without the void selection.

For the purpose of booking point markets, yellow cards are worth 10 points and red cards are worth 25 points. If a player receives 2 yellow cards, and is consequently shown a red card, he receives a total of 35 booking points.
Only players that are booked during active play will count towards the booking points markets (90-minute betting only). This means players on the bench or players booked after Full Time do not receive booking points towards your bet.
The intervals are expressed as the minute of the match. For instance:
- 1-15mins will constitute 00:00-14:59 on the clock
- 16-30 will be 15:00-29:59
- 31-45 will be 30:00 until HT
- 46-60 will be 45:00 until 59:59 (after the second half begins)
- 61-75 will be 60:00 until 74:59
- 76-90 will be 75:00 until FT
Goals Scored in added time at the end of a half will be deemed to have occurred in either the 31-45 or the 76-90 periods respectively for settlement purposes.
We will strive to get your bet settled immediately after the event has finished, but please bear with us at busy times and allow up to 30 minutes for your winnings to be in your account.
