            Football

            90 Minutes Play

            Unless otherwise stated, all bets on football (soccer) markets apply to 90 minutes of play according to the match officials, plus any added injury or stoppage time. However extra time and penalty shoot-outs are not included. The only exceptions from this rule: matches that are scheduled for a lesser duration (e.g. 60, 70, 80 or 120 minutes) as agreed by the laws of the competition in which they are competing or agreed by both sides prior to kick-off ( i.e. Youth matches, where games last for 80 minutes). In such cases, if the match is played in the traditional format of two halves, all bets will be settled at the end of the agreed game length which includes time added on by the referee for stoppages (whether the game length is advertised by BetKing or not).

            FIFA rules in respect to the duration of friendly youth matches:

            U18, U17, U16, U15 teams – 80 minutes (two halves of 40 minutes each);

            U14 teams – 70 minutes (two halves of 35 minutes each), all 70 minutes of play must elapse for bets to stand;

            U13 and U12 teams – 60 minutes (two halves of 30 minutes each), all 60 minutes of play must elapse for bets to stand.

            The rules of friendlies are determined before the start of a tournament. The Customer should check the rules against independent sources of information prior to placing bets on friendlies.

            If the match is played in an unusual format (e.g. 3 or 4 periods) then all half-time markets will be voided but all other markets will be settled on the basis of the score at the end of the match (including any time added on by the referee for stoppages)

             

            Delayed, Moved or Suspended Bets

            If an event or game as a single bet is cancelled, the bet will be considered with odd 1.00 and the stake will be returned to the player. If an event or game in a double or multiple bet is cancelled, the cancelled bet will be considered with odd 1.00 and all other bets odds remain normal. In any case of an obvious mistake or error identified by us, we reserve the right to cancel the bet in whole or in part or to rectify the mistake if applicable.

            In cases where over 90% of the scheduled match time has been completed and the referee ends the match before the assigned time has elapsed then we will use that result for the settlement of all bets placed on the game.

            Alternatively, if a match starts but is later abandoned or postponed and BetKing has information that the match will not have been completed by 23:59 (local time) on its scheduled start date, then all markets, with the exception of any unconditionally determined markets (i.e. time of the first goal or first player to score bets will stand provided a goal has been scored already at the time of abandonment), will be void unless BetKing has knowledge that the match has been rescheduled to be played within two days of its original start date. If BetKing does have knowledge that the abandoned match will be played within two days and the match is played within two days, then all bets will stand except if the match is restarted from the beginning – in that case, all bets matched before the market went in-play will stand, but any bets placed in-play will be void, except for any bets placed in-play on markets which have been unconditionally determined, which will stand.

            Examples:

            If you place a bet for Total goals in the first half being 2 or more and the match is interrupted in the 40th minute at 1-1 result, then the bet is won.

            If you place a bet on 1/1 type for HT / FT market and the match is interrupted in the 60th minute with a 0-1 halftime score, then the bet is lost.

            If you place a bet on 1/1 type for HT / FT market, and the match is interrupted in the 40th minute at 1-1 score, we are facing a situation where the bet will be void if the match is not played by 23:59 (local time) on its scheduled start date.

            In case that a scheduled match has not started (or if BetKing believes that a match will not have started) by 23:59 (local time) on its scheduled date, then all bets will be void unless BetKing has knowledge that the match has been rescheduled to be played within two days of its original start date.

             

            Matches not played as listed

            In case that any team starts the match with less than 11 players, all bets on that match will be made void.

            Football (Soccer) kickoff dates and times displayed on BetKing website are an indication only and are not guaranteed to be correct. If an official fixture lists different team details to those listed on the BetKing website (e.g. official fixture specifies in the team name, Reserves/Age Group e.g. Under 21's/Gender e.g. Women, etc.), then all bets matched on the affected markets will be void. In all other cases, bets will stand (e.g. any wager on whether a team advances in a cup competition, or raises the cup, will have action regardless of a suspended or postponed match). 

            If the home team and away team for a listed match are reversed (e.g. match is played at the away team's ground) then bets placed on the affected markets will be void. For matches played at neutral venues, the team listed on the left are still classed as the 'home' team for settlement purposes.

            A club team playing a European competition is classed as playing at home if the fixture is moved from the team's usual ground to another ground within their national boundaries, e.g. when Arsenal played their Champions League home ties at Wembley.

              

            VAR

            We will consider the VAR as having been used if this is understood from the referee's gestures (e.g. hand gestures or stopping the match to review the incident themselves) and/or VAR usage is confirmed by the match report issued by the official governing body responsible for oversight of the match. In cases where it is uncertain whether the VAR has been used due to missing TV coverage and/or conflicting reports, BetKing will settle the bets based on the information acquired from feed providers and generally reputable independent online sources (acting reasonably).

            For settlement purposes, the event which led to the referral will be deemed to have occurred at the actual time of its occurrence (rather than the time on which the relevant referral, or decision, was made).

            In cases where we have settled a bet and, due to a subsequent VAR decision, it becomes obvious that such settlement was inaccurate, we reserve the right to reverse such settlement (provided that the VAR decision occurred prior to the conclusion of the match or other timeframe relating to the bet).

             

            Settlement of matches, statistics and other data

            Void - means cancelled events or bets as a result of abandoned matches, postponed matches, played before scheduled, technical result, obvious errors, etc. Void bets are calculated with odds of 1.00.

            Bets on football matches labelled “extra time” will be settled excluding penalty shootouts. Bets on penalty shootouts are accepted separately.

            All bets are settled on the final score displayed at the end of the match. If a result is changed or declared void for any reason by sports’ governing body at any time following the end of the match, such change will not alter the result for betting customers and the original result will dictate any bets and/or winnings already paid.

            In the case of ambiguity over the official result from match officials, the outcome will be determined by BetKing (acting reasonably) using information from independent sources.

            If a team is disqualified, thrown out or otherwise removed from a league before the relevant season has started then all bets involving that team will be made void.
