Soccer

Moneyline with Tie

* This is the most common odds used by The Greek Sportsbook where the bettor (punter) has three choices: team A, team B, or a tie. This type of wagering makes sense, since in regular season it is possible for a match to end in a tie. If you wager on a team in this scenario and the outcome of the match at the end of 90 minutes is a tie, the wager is a loss. If you wager on the tie, and one of the teams wins at the end of 90 minutes, the wager is a loss.

* The draw is available as a proposition. If you wager on a fighter, and the fight ends in a draw, the wager is “No Action” or “Push/Cancel” and all money is refunded.

Motor Racing

General Motor Racing Rules – Applies to all series:

* Results will be graded at the end of the race as posted on the official site for that series e.g. Nascar.com, f1.com, indyracingleague.com etc. If there was an error on the site in the posting of the results, then the results will be regraded. If changes are subsequently made due to appeals or decisions of the governing body unrelated to the original finishing order (i.e. penalties for rules infractions, dangerous driving, etc.) the original results will still be deemed as the official results for grading purposes. Appeals and administrative penalties are not applicable for betting purposes.

A driver must start for action. If the driver withdraws prior to the start of the race then bets on said driver will be refunded. If he withdraws after the start or is replaced by another driver all bets on that driver will stand. In the case of a replacement driver the original driver will be deemed as the driver of that car for the entire race.

For win bets and pole bets to count at least 1/2 of the scheduled drivers must start in the race or in the qualifying session for pole bets. Similarly for multiple position bets such as top 3, top 8 etc. at least 2/3 of the scheduled drivers must start in the race. If fewer than 2/3 of the scheduled drivers start all bets will be graded as a push/cancel.

Wagering on the “Field” includes any driver that odds have not been assigned to.
