    Wager pre match start on +1.5 sets for a player A.
    Player A wins 1st set. 2nd set 1 game is finished and Player B retires.

    In the past has been graded as win for player A.

    They marked it as cancelled stating there was a retirement.

    There rules state for tennis "all bets will be cancelled if retirement or DQ happens, unless market has already been determined"



    Any thoughts or suggestions?

    Used to play at bookmaker and they clearly state that if retirement occurs all bets will be refunded and cancelled no matter how far along.

    You might have a case. Maybe they were confused and thought it was +1.5 games. I know Iíve had matches where I have over graded before match is over. So itís not like offshore where that would be void if match wasnít completed.

    On all set spreads betting, the full match has to be completed or else it's no action. The "unless the market has been predetermined" refers to betting totals. For example if you bet the over 18 games and the match was stopped with 19 games played, you win the bet.

    Thatís not how their rules read. And Iím pretty sure Iíve experienced same thing as op before where they would grade it a win. Iíll see if I can find it in my bet history

    I've never seen a book that graded a -1.5/+1.5 sets without the full match completed. Even though it's numerically impossible to win the bet, they still have to complete it because there's a possibility that other player might retire as well.

    General Rules

    In any of the following circumstances, all bets will stand:

    A change of venue

    A change from indoor court to outdoor court or vice versa

    A change of surface (either before or during a match)

    A delay in start of a match

    Suspensions, as long as the play is resumed, and the match is completed

    Bets will be void in the event the statutory number of sets is not completed (e.g. retirement, disqualification or cancellation) or changed, unless the market has already been determined, or unless otherwise stated.*

    If any market does not reach its natural conclusion (e.g. the end of a game/point for a game/point market), bets will be void unless the market has already been determined, or unless otherwise stated.

    For futures bets, bets are void if the player selected does not start the 1st*round of the tournament.

    Specific Market Rules

    Moneyline-*In the event a player/team is disqualified after the start of the match, the player/team progressing to the next round or being awarded the victory will be deemed the winner for settlement purposes. Bets stand if the statutory number of sets is changed.

    Spreads-*Predict the winner of the set/match applying the given spread. A super tie break is considered as one set for settlement purposes.

    Totals-*Totals, or over/under bets refer to the total number of games/sets played. Win/loss is determined by the number of games/sets accumulated by both players, unless otherwise stated. A tie break is considered as one game for game bets. A super tiebreak is considered as one game for game bets, and one set for set bets. In the event that the total is exactly equal to the betting line, then all bets on this offer will be declared void.

    Total Tie Break / Tie Break in a Match including Live Betting- A super tie break is not considered as a tie break for bets on Total Tie Break.

    1st to Win X Games- All bets placed after the coin toss will be void.

    First Break- All bets placed after the coin toss will be void.

    Total Aces- A Total Aces wager is similar to an Asian Handicap and Over/Under wager. Win/loss is determined by the number of aces collectively accumulated by both players. Bets will be void in the event the statutory number of sets is changed. In the event a match is not completed because of a player retirement or disqualification, all bets will be void.

    Total Breaks of Serve in the Match- Predict how many times each player will lose their service game in the match. Bets will be void in the event the statutory number of sets is changed. In the event a match is not completed because of a player retirement or disqualification, all bets will be void.


    Fast Markets

    Point Winner / 1st Point Winner- Bets void in the event the point is awarded by the umpire as a penalty point.

    To Win 1st Game/Point- All bets placed after the coin toss will be void.

    Statistical and Player Markets

    Match Doubles- Match result with either most aces, least aces, most doubles faults, or least doubles faults in the event. Equal number of aces or equal number of double faults will be settled as a losing bet.

    Match Trebles- Match result with most/least aces and most/least double faults in the match. Predict which player will win the three named markets. Equal number of aces or equal number of double faults will be deemed as a losing bet.

    Highest 1st Serve Percentage- In the event the 1st serve percentage is tied, the bet is lost.

    Player X Not to Lose Serve in Match- Tie breaks do not count as service games.

    First Player to Lose a Service Game- Tie breaks do not count as service games. For this wager to be a winner, the player specified must lose a service game.

    Futures/Other Props

    Winning Quarter/Winning Half- Predict from which quarter or half the winner of the tournament will come from. All players taking part in the tournament are divided into 4 groups (quarters), with one of the top 4 seeds in each quarter. Winning Quarter: choose from which quarter the winning player will come from (e.g. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th). Winning Half: choose from which half the winning player will come from (e.g. top or bottom).

    First New Number 1- A new player to be ranked as ATP number 1 in the world who has never achieved this ranking before. In the event a player not in the selections reaches ATP number 1 in the world, bets will be void.

    Settlement Rules

    All settlements are based on the statistics and results provided by the official website of the league’s governing body on the day of the game, unless stated otherwise.

    From reading that, I'd agree that you have a case.

    Was surprised to not see a line that said handicaps/totals are void unless match fully completed.




    Email, instead of live chat, and ask for your message to be escalated to a manager.

    If that doesn't get you fixed, you are welcome to PM me your state and account number and I can give it a try for you.

    Talked to 3 different guys. 1st guy just said it was a walkover and I sent him 2 links and draftkings fantasy app results. he quit responding.

    2nd guy said it was cancelled because the other player could of won sets 2 and 3. So i kindly asked him well if player B won set 2 and 3 after player A won set one How would my wager of been graded. He said a winner.

    So I was just trying to get some answer on what the "unless the market has been determined" meant. Didn't know if "Market" meant a set number (over 20.5 games or +6.5games) or if it meant the bet has zero other outcome.

    either way, zero help. It wasn't for alot of money, so not too concerned, but good to know moving forward as I'm 99.6% sure I've had wagers graded on this before with retirements involved

    But since they couldn't give me an answer on what "market has been determined" meant was a little worrisome as it give them leeway to grade however they please. I asked them to be a little more specific in their rules if possible. it was a tad confusing.

    Your bet has been determined as any natural conclusion of the game would have Player A covering +1.5 sets. So your bet should be paid.
