Olympic Rules

General Olympic Rules

If an event is cancelled, all bets are void. If any event/match is postponed bets will stand providing the event is rescheduled to take place before the closing ceremony. This rule supersedes any of the individual sports’ postponement rules.

If a competitor or team does not start a race or tournament then bets placed on that competitor or team will be considered as losing bets. Stakes will not be refunded on selections in this case.

Final medal placings

The final medal table declared by the governing body at the end of the event will be used to settle bets on how many medals a competitor or country may win. Any subsequent changes to the medal table will not be taken into consideration.

Results

All races/events will be settled according to the medal ceremony, any subsequent disqualifications will not count for settlement purposes. Should the result of an event be amended following an enquiry, competitors awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze at the original medal ceremony will be deemed 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively for settlement purposes.

In the event of more than one medal being awarded for the same position, for example there is potential for 2 bronze medals in boxing, bets on both competitors awarded medals will be deemed winners.

Team Medals

Any medals won by a team/nation per competition count as one medal regardless of the number of team members.

Which country will win the most gold medals? If two or more countries gain an equal number of gold medals, the number of silver medals will decide. If the number of medals is still equal, the number of bronze medals will decide.

Which country will win the most silver medals? If two or more countries gain an equal number of silver medals, the number of gold medals will decide. If the number of medals is still equal, the number of bronze medals will decide.

Which country will win the most bronze medals? If two or more countries gain an equal number of bronze medals, the number of gold medals will decide. If the number of medals is still equal, the number of silver medals will decide.

Head to Head betting

Where both competitors reach the final, settlement will be based on their finishing positions in the final.

If both competitors are eliminated in the same round of a competition before the final, bets will be made void.

Where competitors are eliminated in different rounds of a competition, the competitor progressing furthest will be the winner for settlement purposes. For example, where one competitor is eliminated in a heat, and the other competitor is eliminated in the semi-final, the competitor reaching the semi-final will be deemed the winner.
