Official Game Times

  1. Bets are considered official after 55 minutes of play. If 55 minutes of play are not completed, straight bets are considered void and combined bets (parlays) and teasers will be reduced accordingly.
  2. Bets on the 1st half, 2nd half, and all quarters will be considered valid at the end of the period in question. If the period is played under abbreviated conditions, all bets in that period will be deemed as no-action.
  3. Handicap bets (spread), money line, totals of the whole match, and all bets on the second half always include the overtime score. Bets for the 4th quarter do not include the overtime score.

Suspended/Postponed Games

For bets to have action, the game must reach official game time within 5 days of the originally scheduled start time.

If a match is postponed/suspended after it has been considered an official game, bets will be graded based on the official game times.

When a game is postponed/suspended before it starts, and it is determined that the game will not be played within 5 days of the originally scheduled start time, all bets will be void and refunded.

When a game is in progress and delayed before it is considered official, the game must resume and be completed within 5 days of the originally scheduled start time for betting to take effect.

If for any reason the location of the game is changed from the original site, all bets placed before the change of venue will be valid.

All postseason bets have action if the game is completed within 30 days of the originally scheduled start time.

All bets placed on markets whose results have already been determined will have action. For example, when you bet on a 1st quarter line, the bet will take effect as soon as the market is official (the quarter ends), even if the game is suspended after that.
