Markets Based on Total Games/Handicap Games Including In-Play

These general rules apply to Games in Individual Sets, Games in Match, Player Games, and Handicap Betting (based on games won). In the event of forfeited points/games, these will count for final settlement.

For the purposes of all such markets a tie-break or Match tie-break is counted as one game.

In the event of retirement, disqualification or change of surface mid-match, bets will be void unless there is no conceivable way the set and/or match could be played to its natural conclusion without unconditionally determining the result of that market.

E.g. (1) A set is abandoned at 4-4: bets on Over/Under 9.5 games or fewer in the set are settled as winners/losers respectively, since any natural conclusion to the set would have at least 10 games; bets on Over/Under 10.5 games or more are void.

E.g. (2) A best-of-3 sets match is abandoned at 6-4 2-6: bets on Over/Under 23.5 games or fewer in match will be settled as winners/losers respectively, since any natural conclusion to the match would have at least 24 games; bets on Over/Under 24.5 games or more are void.

E.g. (3) A best-of-3 sets match is abandoned at 6-4 4-6 5-5: bets on either player with a handicap of +2.5 or more will be settled as winners, bets on either player with a handicap of -2.5 or less will be settled as losers, and bets on the tie with a handicap of +/- 3 or more will be settled as losers. All bets on handicaps ranging from -2 to +2 will be void.

The Handicap, Total Games In Match and Player Games markets are based on a statutory number of sets (see related Set Betting). In the event of the statutory number of sets being changed or differing from those offered for betting purposes then all bets are void.

At the end of the match all of the games each individual player wins are totalled and the handicap applied to determine the handicap winner.

Settlement of Wagers

Statistics provided by the official score(s) provider or the official website of the relevant competition or fixture will be used to settle wagers. Where statistics from an official score(s) provider or official website are not available or there is significant evidence that the official score(s) provider or official website is incorrect, we will use independent evidence to support bet settlement.

In the absence of consistent, independent evidence or in the presence of significant conflicting evidence, bets will be settled based on our own statistics.
