Aside from the following special betting rules, the common betting rules apply. The special rules will take precedence over the common rules nevertheless.
1.) Playing Time: If the match is abandoned before the official outcome then the result is regarded to be official after
- “55” minutes of play for “American Ice Hockey” (NHL, AHL, UHL, WHL, OHL and Quebec Major Junior hockey league).
- “60” minutes of play for “Non American Ice Hockey”.
Unless otherwise stated, this rule applies to all kinds of bets.
2.) 2-Way: All bets will be settled on the final result including Overtime and Penalty Shout-outs, unless otherwise stated.
3.) Date: For “American Ice Hockey” (NHL, AHL, UHL, WHL, OHL and Quebec Major Junior hockey league), all games must be played on the scheduled calendar day (at venue) and at the scheduled venue for bets to stand.
4.) First Player to Score: If a player has not entered the field of play before the first goal has been scored, then this player is deemed a “non-runner” which means that all bets on this player are void. Overtime does not count.
5.) Winner of 1st, 2nd or 3rd Period: Only the goals scored within the nominated period count. Unless otherwise stated, overtime does not count for the result of the 3rd period.
6.) Division Champions: If the season is shortened for any reason then bets will be settled based on the Division Champion declared by the respective governing body.
7.) Goalbet (Correct Score): If the final result is outside offered outcomes, all bets will be settled as “lost”.
8.) Nominated Finalists: The finalists are the players/teams that really content the final regardless of how they get there, including decisions made by any governing bodies.
9.) If a moneyline, total or handicap bet ends in a draw and no odds have been offered for this option, all bets will be void.
10.) Regular Season Points: All teams must play all regular season games for bets to stand. If the season is shortened for whatever reason, then all bets will be void, unless the highest possible option has already been attained, in which case all bets stand.
11.) “Grand Salami”/NHL: This bet refers to the total number of goals scored over all the matches played on a given day. Only games played on the day (according to the NHL schedule) count. Should any games be postponed or any games added to the schedule after the initial odds have been posted, then all bets will be void. Should any games be abandoned during play, then all bets will be void.
12.) How many 2 or 5 minute penalties will be awarded in the Xth period? For this bet, each 2 minute or 5 minute penalty counts as 1, so if 3 x 2 minute penalties are awarded, the winning option will be 'Under 3,5'. If, however, a 2 + 2 minute penalty is awarded, it counts as 2 x 2 minutes. This means if 1 x 5 minute, 1 x 2 minute and 2 + 2 minute penalties are awarded, the winning option will be 'Over 3,5'. All penalties awarded before a period starts are counted for the previous period, so if a 2 minute penalty is given during the 1st intermission, this counts for the 1st period.
13.) Rest of Regular Time/Rest of Period X: This bet is settled referring to the result of the game between the placement of the bet and the end of regular time / period. The correct result is the theoretical outcome of the game if the score at the time of bet placement had been 0:0. The current score at the time of bet placement is displayed in the market game, i.e. ‘Rest of Regular Time – current result 1:2’ so if game ends 2:3 then draw will be winning option. The bet "Rest of Period X" is settled accordingly.
14.) Playing time exception: Matches in Russian Liga Pro are played over 30 minutes (3*10 minutes periods) and this is considered Regular Time in this league.
15.) Short Hockey leagues have listed playing time of 3x10 or 3x15 minutes and this is considered regular time for these leagues.
