Does my bet include overtime / extra time? Sportsbook T&C


Recommended Posts

Full time / Overtime
Unless listed either in conjunction with the bet offer, or else in the Sport Specific rules, all bets should be considered valid for the result at the end of the "Regular Time" or "Full Time" only. "Regular Time" or "Full time" is defined as interpreted by the official rules published by the respective governing association. For example, in football, full time is stipulated to be 90 minutes including injury time, and in ice hockey it is stipulated as the 3 x 20 minute periods. Should the governing association decide to stipulate, before the start of the event, that the said event is to be played over a different duration, this will be treated as being the official rules for the event (for example, Under 17 football played with 2 x 40 minutes). Nonetheless, such occurrence is limited to the "regular" playing time and does not include any prolongation such as extra time or overtime, unless explicitly stated.

The rule states that all bets are to be settled in regular time/full time unless overtime is written in the bet description. For instance, on basketball bets you’ll see the text “including overtime” on most of the bets offered. The reason for this is simply that a basketball match can’t end with no winners, unless it's a knockout-stage of two mathces. If the match ends in a draw during regular time in basketball it'll continue in overtime to find a winner for the match. In opposite, our bet offers on football are without overtime because usually a draw means that each team gets a point, unless it’s a cup match with a chance of overtime. The difference is that basketball continue to overtime in 99% of the tied matches, and football matches usually end as a draw if the score is even after 90 minutes.
You might think it’s unfair, if you’ve bet over 2,5 goals on a football cup match that ends 2-1 in extra time after 1-1 in the first 90 minutes as the match actually had 3 goals in total.
We do understand this argument, although the odds for over/under total goals in football is determined of a match of 90 minutes played. In addition, we also believe it would be more unfair for the customers who would end up losing their under bet, if we included extra time goals for this type of bet.
