Winter Sports Rules
The following rules apply to the winter sports listed below:
Cross Country Skiing
Short Track Speed Skating
If a specific event (determined as: after a final competitor list is known) is suspended or postponed bets remain valid provided that the event is completed on the same run/same venue within 72 hours (with exception of Winter Olympic and World Championship events). For Winter Olympics and World Championships bets will stand for whenever the event is rearranged. If the event takes place on a different run/venue bets will be made void and stakes returned.
Outright Betting (including event winner, top 3/6/10, to win gold/any medal)
Unless otherwise stated, betting is on an ‘all-in run or not’ basis. (No refunds for non-starters). Podium positions and all other results will be determined by the official prize giving/medal ceremony immediately after the event and will not be affected by any subsequent enquiries. All events will be settled as per official governing body (FIS/IBU/International Olympic Committee (IOC) results). If a 2 round event is not fully completed but a result declared by the FIS then bets will be settled as per the official results sheet. If no result is declared then all bets will be made void. Dead heat rules apply.
We occasionally offer outright betting markets for a race or stage where there is a ‘yes/no’ option for a named athlete to win/finish in top 3. In the event of a dead heat on these markets – where both sides could be deemed as winners – markets will be declared void.
Group Betting (including the top athlete from any given nation, for example: ‘German athlete’)
If one or more participants fail to take part in a specified event then bets will be void. Dead-heat rules apply.
Head to Head Betting (Match Betting)
Downhill and Super G: Both skiers must leave the start gate for bets to stand. If both skiers fail to finish, all bets will be void.
Slalom and Giant Slalom: Both skiers must leave the start gate for the bet to stand. If neither competitor/team finishes in an event with two or more runs, the number of runs completed will determine the winner. The person with the highest placed finish in the first run will be deemed the winner. If both competitors fail to finish the first run then all bets will be made void.
Ski Jumping: Both Ski Jumpers must leave the start gate for bets to stand. If neither competitor completes the first jump bets are void. If only one competitor finishes the event this competitor is deemed the winner. If both competitors fail to qualify for the second jump the best placed competitor in the first jump is the winner.
Cross Country Skiing: If either competitor/team fails to start bets are void. If neither competitor/team finishes the race bets are void. If only one competitor finishes this competitor is deemed the winner. If one competitor gets through the prologue whilst the other fails the competitor who got through the prologue is the winner.
All other Winter Sports Head to Heads: Both participants/teams quoted in the head to head must leave the start line for bets to stand.
Bets will be settled on the official interval listed by the event’s governing body.
Nationality of Winner
This is determined by the country the winner competes for (not the country they were born in if there is a difference).
