Special Football Season Win Rules
NFL Season Win Totals only includes Regular Season Games and all 16 Regular Season Games must be played for Action. Playoff games and Pre Season Games do NOT count for this bet offering.
NCAA Season Win Totals only includes Regular Season Games. Each team must play their scheduled 11 Regular season Games, except for Hawaii, USC and Virginia Tech which must play 12 Regular Season Games. Championship Games and Bowl games do NOT count for this bet offering.
Special Major League Baseball Rules
Major League Baseball games are official after 5 innings of play, or 4.5 innings if the home team is leading. If a game is subsequently called or suspended, the winner is determined by the score after the last full inning unless the home team ties the score or takes the lead in the bottom half of the inning. Then the winner will be determined by the score at the time the game is called. When wagering on total runs or run lines, the game must go the regulation 9 innings, or 8.5 innings if the home team is leading, otherwise it will constitute a "No Action" wager, and all money will be handled accordingly.
Baseball wagers are accepted as "Listed." In the event of a pitching change prior to the game, all wagers on the game with said listed pitchers are considered “No Action.” All wagers will be refunded to the customers account. Starting Pitchers must throw at least one pitch for wager to be deemed "Action". Each team's starting pitcher is defined for betting purposes as the pitcher that throws the first pitch.
Any and all baseball series wagers must have all 3 games played by the end of a specified date for the wager to have action. If all 3 games are not played by that specified date then all wagers are NO ACTION, regardless if one team has 2 wins. All 3 games must be official by Las Vegas Gaming Standards (see our rules regarding baseball wagers and what constitutes an official result)
NOTE: Each team's starting pitcher is defined for betting purposes as the pitcher that throws the first pitch.
NOTE: If GoSportsBet provides a baseball series price for a series that has four games, for grading purposes, the wager is based on the initial three games.
All baseball props must go the full 9 innings (8½ if the Home Team is Winning) unless otherwise stated. They also must start the listed pitchers.
In Baseball, all games that go at least the full 9 innings and finish tied as a result of a suspension of play, shall be graded as a push on all money line bets. However, all run line and total bets will have action. Note that this is an extremely rare occurrence. In the event of a change in Las Vegas rules, GoSportsBet will adhere to the decision set forth in Las Vegas.
First Five Innings Bets are listed pitchers and the game must go a full 5 Innings to have action regardless if the game is called or postponed after the 5th Inning.
Team to Score First Props are listed pitchers and will be graded as soon as the first team scores and once the home team has at least a chance to bat. If the home team scores first, that bet will be graded at that time and bets are action regardless of game suspension or postponement. If the visiting team scores first the bet will be graded once the home team has completed their at bat.
Will there be a Score in the First Inning Props are listed pitchers and will be graded as soon as the First Inning ends, all bets are action regardless of game suspension or postponement.
Total Runs+Hits+Error Props are listed pitchers and the game must go a full 8.5 Innings for bets to have action.
Baseball Player and Pitcher Props are listed pitchers. The game must go a full 8.5 Innings for bets to have action. If there is a pitching change, all player props for that game will be closed immediately and when the game starts and it is confirmed that a different pitcher threw out the first pitch other than the listed pitcher, those props will be graded No Action.
In boxing, the official stopping of a round before the sounding of the bell does not constitute a full round. A full round is only considered for wagering purposes when the bell sounds signifying the end of said round. Boxing match must take place within two months of the specified date for your bet to be deemed "Action".
For tournament match-up betting, both players listed in the match-up must tee off for your bet to be deemed "Action". The player with the most completed holes wins. If the players complete the same number of holes, then the player with the lowest score wins. If the players are still tied then the wager shall be deemed "No Action" and all monies will be refunded. If both golfers in a match-up are in a playoff, the winner of the play-off wins the match-up.
Should a tournament be shortened or otherwise affected due to weather conditions, the official result will be used when settling, regardless of the number or rounds played. However, should there be no further play after a bet is struck, that bet will be void.
Single day match-ups are wagers on the particular day's 18 holes. Single Day match-ups do not include holes played as part of a completion from the previous day's round nor playoff holes considered part of the overall tournament score. Should a day's round be shortened, or otherwise affected, due to weather conditions and the round is continued the next day, the full 18 holes shall be considered in determining the outcome of the bet even if they are played over two days. Both golfers must tee off for action. If both players end the 18 holes in a tie, the money line wagers shall be refunded; stroke line wagers will be deemed "Action".
For single round-single player propostions, all 18 holes must be completed.
Stroke Line Betting
In golf the lower score wins. If you bet (-1/2) stroke, your golfer must shoot 1 or more shots lower than the opponent. If you bet (+1/2) your golfer must shoot the same score or a lower score than the opponent. Example: You bet Singh (-1/2) vs. Mickelson. Singh shoots 69, Mickelson 70. Singh (-1/2) is the winner. If Singh shoots 69 and Mickelson shoots 69, Mickelson (+1/2) is the winner.
Rules for Finishing Top 3
In the case of a tie or multiple players finishing in the top 3 position, wagers will be paid using our Dead Heat Rule.
Dead Heat Rule
In the event of a dead heat (a tie), stakes will be divided by the number of selections that have tied, with the divided stake settled at full odds. Remaining stakes are lost. If the tie was a betting option, then the dead heat rule does not apply. The dead heat rule only applies to 'future' wagers. For example, if there is a 3-way tie for the top scorer in a basketball game, then your winnings are calculated by taking your stake, dividing it by 3, and multiplying that amount by the odds on your betting ticket.
European Football (Soccer)
All soccer bets will be settled on 90 minutes of play. This includes any time added by the referee in respect of injuries and other stoppages. Extra Time, Golden Goals and Penalty Shoot-Outs do not count.
For soccer wagering, in order to place your bet correctly you must predict the result of at least one (1) game, choosing: the home team, or the away team, or a draw. Should you parlay multiple games together, you must win all games in the parlay in order to collect any winnings.
Bets taken on 'first goal scorer' will be void if the player does not take part in the game or enters the game after a goal has already been scored. Bets taken on 'last goal scorer' will be void if the player does not play or enters the game as a substitute.
If any match is abandoned, or postponed, all bets shall be void unless the relevant wagering option has already been decided. For example, the 'first goal scorer' wagering option will stand if a goal has already been scored.
Where a venue is changed, bets will stand unless the game is to be played at the original away team's ground in which case all bets will be void.
For Cricket games, if the match is shortened by the weather, bets will be governed by the official competition rules.
For Rugby games, if any match is abandoned or postponed all bets will be void, except bets on the first try scorer if a try has been scored prior to abandonment.
Where a venue is changed, bets will stand unless the game is to be played at the original away team's ground in which case all bets will be void.
For Tennis Match betting, two (2) full sets must be completed for wagers to stand. If less than 2 sets are completed, all wagers will be considered “No Action”. In the event of any of the following circumstances taking place all bets will stand: (i) a change of playing surface, (ii) a change of venue, (iii) a change from indoor court to outdoor court or vice versa, or (iv) match is postponed to the following day due to inclement weather.
When placing a wager on "Odds to Win" a race, your wager shall be deemed 'No Action' should the driver not start the race. For a motor sports match-up to be deemed "Action", both drivers must start the race. The start of any motor race is defined as the signal to start the warm-up lap. The official winner at the conclusion of the race will be the winner for betting purposes. In league championship wagering, drivers must race in at least one race during the season to be deemed 'Action'. All Races must be run within one week of the scheduled date for your bet to have action.
Special Motorsport Rule: Races must be run within one week of the scheduled date for your bet to have action.
The NASCAR.com website is our official source for the grading of all NASCAR wagers
The race must complete the scheduled number of laps and/or distance for specific proposition wagers (pertaining to number of laps and/or distance) to be deemed "Action". Matchups, finishing position props and future wagers will still have action regardless.
In the event of a tie in NCAA conference wagering, the team entering the conference tournament 'seeded' higher shall be deemed the winner.
Parlay or Multiple Betting
No parlay wagers can be accepted where individual wagers are 'connected', 'dependant' or 'correlated'. For example, one wager in your parlay is for Federer to beat Agassi in the 4th round of Wimbledon and the second or additional part of the parlay is for Federer to win the overall Wimbledon title. The match forms part of the overall tournament and is therefore 'correlated'. In the same way, you cannot parlay the total of the first half of a football game with the total of the game line itself, as the two are 'dependent'.
Buying Points allows you the ability to change the point spread of a football or basketball game. You can move the point spread so you get more points if you are betting the underdog or you give away less points if you are betting the favorite. For each half point that you change the point spread your potential payout decreases by roughly 8.33%.
For example, if you are betting the Lakers -5 -110 (lay $110 to win $100), you can buy the Lakers a half point to -4.5, and risk $110 to win $91.67. You can buy the Lakers a full point to -4 and risk $110 to win $83.33.
The same policy holds true for the underdog. If the Bulls are +4 +100, (the standard bet; $110 risked to win $100), you can buy the game to +4.5 +91.67 ($110 risked to win $91.67) or +5 +83.33, and so on.
You may only buy a maximum of 3 points in Football and Basketball, both college and pro.
There is one special rule: When buying on or off the number 3 in the NFL, there is a premium cost of 16.66%, not 8.33%. So for example to move the Chargers from -3 -110 to -2.5, the new line will be -2.5 +83.33 (risk $110 to win $83.33). The same is true for the underdog: to buy the Bears from +3 -110 to +3.5 you will risk $110 to win $83.33.
GoSportsBet reserves the right to change the casino settings and payouts without any forewarning to the customers at any given time.
Wagering in Blackjack, Roulette, Craps and Baccarat do not count towards any bonus rollover requirements and GoSportsBet shall make all decisions with regard to the application and retention of bonuses.
Note: For general casino disputes we provide a record that contains the bet amount, running balance, game type, Round ID and time for each single casino round only. Every casino round has a unique Round ID and customers should provide it in their casino claim. Due to technology constraints we can only provide the customer with the card/number/dice details and outcomes for a limited number of casino rounds only (25 rounds maximum). If a unique Round ID or exact time for a particular casino round is not provided by the customer we cannot guarantee the funds will be reimbursed.
If as part of a promotion offered by GoSportsBet you receive betting cash, you can only use such amount as wagers for playing in the games offered by the company. You are not entitled to withdraw such amounts and we reserve the right to reclaim those amounts if you do not use them to play the games during the period specified in the promotion.
Customers who have a GoSportsBet account are the only ones who can redeem promotional prizes and winnings from promotions. If you have more than one betting account, all promotional credits and/or winnings will be null and void and they will be deducted from your account.
GoSportsBet considers it to be fraudulent customer behavior when a player wagers both sides of a game using a promotional bet (to bet at the same time on the favorite and the underdog) or using bonus money. Any money won playing both sides of the game will be deducted, together with any other promotional money deposited in the customer’s account
GoSportsBet reserves the right to modify any promotion rules or cancel promotions at its own discretion.
Customers are not permitted to open multiple accounts in order to circumvent the limits imposed by our wagering system. Performing such an action may trigger an audit of your account. If multiple accounts have been used then all bets will be void.
It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that we have their current address on file at all times. Customers may only have one address on file at a time, and this address MUST match the billing address of ALL cards that have been used in the account. Any failure on the customer's part to do this may result in an audit on the customer's account.
Multiple Credit Cards
The maximum number of credit cards allowed for use in one account is five.
