Aussie Rules Football Rules
All bets shall be settled on official AFL results only. For AFL markets referencing “Team A” and “Team B”: Team A – Refers to the First Team listed. They are also the home side for this match. Team B – Refers to the Second Team Listed. They are the away side. When sides are playing at a neutral venue, Team A is referenced as the first team mentioned. Team B is listed as the second team mentioned.
All Australian Rules bets shall be settled at the end of normal time, unless otherwise stated. Regular season Home and Away matches are settled at 'Normal Time' with no extra time played. In the event of a 'draw' where no draw option is offered we will apply the 'dead heat rule' and all wagers will be paid at half face value of the ticket. For any AFL Finals matches or any other Competition which includes extra time, markets will be settled on the completion of extra time, unless the draw is offered in the market.
Where the draw option is offered, the bet is decided on the result at the end of normal time (i.e. extra time - an extension of normal time is not included.) For Margin betting, the draw option is always offered, although in other betting options where the draw option is not offered, The Dead Heat Rule applies. In Quarter by Quarter markets for the purposes of betting the 'Draw at the end of any Quarter' market is one competitor only. Tribets are settled as any team under in the case of a draw when no extra time is played.
If a match is abandoned before the end of normal time, all bets on the match are void, except for those markets which have been unconditionally determined.
Where a match is abandoned or postponed, and played within 48 hours of the original scheduled date, all bets stand. Once the 48 hours have expired, all single bets are void and wagers will be refunded while affected multi bets (excluding multi bets that involve a same game multi as one of the legs of the multi bet), will be recalculated excluding that event or leg. For the avoidance of doubt, any multi bets where all legs are same game multi bet legs, will be void and wagers will be refunded.
If the duration of a match is changed by the governing body prior to the commencement of play, the revised game length will be regarded as the official regulation time for this match, and all bets will stand as long as this new regulation time is completed.
If a match is no longer playing at the venue advertised, all bets will stand unless the venue has been changed to the opponent’s home ground, in which case all bets will be void.
For match winners and goal kicking options, statistics used by the AFL website (www.afl.com.au) will be the statistics used for payout purposes. For 1st Goal Scorer (Game/1st Quarter only), if the selected player is not in the starting 22 all wages on that selection will be refunded. For bets on first goalscorer of the match, the goal doesn't need to be scored in 1st quarter. For quarter first goal scorer markets, if no goal in that quarter then bets refunded.
