10. Sportsbook General Rules
10.1 Each user determines his stakes himself, with the exception of the restriction imposed by limits of winnings and possible stake limits. A precondition for the effective placement of a bet is that before the closure for the acceptance of bets there must be sufficient balance on the account to cover the stake. If the balance on the account does not provide full coverage and the difference is not remitted in due time, offers for the placement of bets will be accepted by the company only in the order in which they are received for as long as the betting account for each individual bet is completely covered. If the stake for a bet is only partly covered by the balance on the account, the bet is deemed to be placed with a stake corresponding to the remaining balance on the account.
10.2 A bet is accepted once the company has confirmed it. A bet is confirmed when it appears in the customer’s account. In some isolated cases delays may occur. In the event of a dispute over the time when a bet was placed, the time when the bet was registered by the company shall govern.
10.3 Bets placed and accepted in good time may not be revoked or changed. It is therefore the user's sole responsibility to ensure that all of the details of his/her bets are correct.
10.4 If a bet is declared “invalid” or “void” (e.g. cancellation of the betting event), then this bet will be evaluated as “won” with odds of 1.00. For individual (single) bets, this means that the user will get the amount equal to his stake back. In a multi bet, this means that the total odds will be adjusted accordingly and the multi bet can still be won if all other bets it contains are won too.
10.5 If the bet is placed after the beginning of the betting event, the bet is invalid (this does not include live betting). The bet will be evaluated as “won” using the odds 1.00. For “Live Betting”, bets which are received by the company after the result of the respective bet has been determined are invalid and will be evaluated as “won” using odds of 1.00.
10.6 The deadline for placing bets will in each case be determined by the company.
10.7 The company reserves the right to decline acceptance of any bet without giving a reason.
10.8 If, during the period of acceptance of bets, information becomes known through which the outcome of the bet can be determined, the deadline for acceptance of bets will be determined anew by the company or the bet will be cancelled. Cancelled bets are evaluated as “won” at odds of 1.00.
10.9 Bethard assumes no responsibility for typing, transmission and/or evaluation errors. In particular, the company reserves its right to correct obvious errors - even after the event - with the input of betting odds and/or the evaluation of betting results (e.g. odds-related, team-related, event-related errors) or declare affected bets void. Bethard also assumes no liability for correctness, completeness or up-to-datedness of the information services provided, for example live scores and result messages sent via e-mail. The stake is exclusively the amount confirmed and recorded by the company. In case the erroneous event/market is cancelled all bets are void and will be evaluated as “won” with odds of 1,00.
10.10 In the case of bets with fixed odds, the gross winnings are calculated by multiplying the stake by the fixed odds. In the case of live bets, the customer is able to accept any changes in odds during the bet placement process. Changes in odds are understood to be those which change between the pick being added to the bet slip and the bet being accepted by Bethard. The actual odds are then displayed in the bet confirmation notification. If the user does not receive a bet confirmation notification, the bet is still valid if it is displayed in the “My Betting History” section of the betting account, under “Sports”.
10.11 Winnings are only paid out up to a maximum of the winning limits. If the player places a bet whose payment exceeds the winning limit, Bethard is not liable for the excess amount. In this case payments of winnings will be reduced correspondingly. This applies also if Bethard has not warned the bettor against possible excesses of the winning limits at the time of betting. The winning limits for bets with real money are Per Player and Week EUR50,000 or equivalent.
10.12 Bethard reserves the right to determine winning limits different from those specified above and/or determine specific winning limits for individual players.
10.13 If a user makes several equal bets (also the combination of single and multi bets), whose total winnings exceed the winning limit Bethard is entitled to reduce the stake to the necessary extent in order to comply with the winning limits.
10.14 Unless otherwise stated – in the exceptions below, in the betting offer or in the special rules of each sport – the principle “all bets stand” applies to all bets. This means, that if the athlete (or team, etc.), on whom/which the bet has been placed, fails to participate – for whatever reason – the bet is lost if the betting event takes place. Only in exceptional cases will bet be declared void, particularly in the following cases:
10.15 The event/tournament is cancelled or declared void.
10.16 The event/tournament is interrupted and restarted more than 36 hours after the original start date
10.17 Head to Head (H2H) bets: If one or more participants withdraw before they have started the event/tournament.
10.18 All bets that are determined (i.e. the outcome is already decided) are valid and will be settled accordingly regardless of subsequent abandonment of the event/tournament at any time.
10.19 Bethard recognizes only those results which have been achieved on the playing field or platform. Results amounting from disciplinary measures from a sports' court or another court of law are not considered. In case of violation of sports laws, the company reserves the right to freeze the winnings and withhold payment.
10.20 Bethard offer the most or equal-most amount of highest odds on 1X2 markets pre-game for Premier League, Champions League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and all the big tournaments like the World Cup and the European Championships from 2018-04-01 onwards. We don’t do campaigns with tempting odds where the stakes are limited to a small amount. Our promise of high odds doesn’t include these kinds of false offers but delivers high odds without betting limits. We compare ourselves with the leading betting companies in the UK. Our average pay out percentage on these leagues is 98% which is the highest in the industry (a normal industry average for these leagues is 94-95%).
10.21 The customer may not combine related bets on the same event. Related bets are two or more different bets that have related contingency.
10.22 Live bets are offered exclusively before and during an event on a dedicated live bets platform. The odds are continuously updated to reflect the current status of the game.
10.23 In order to avoid a bet not being accepted due to changes in odds, the system automatically updates the odds before slip confirmation and the customer should check the latest odds in betting slip before the confirmation.
10.24 For live bets the results that are known immediately after the conclusion of a betting market will be the ones used to evaluate the winning outcome(s). Subsequent modifications (e.g. results decided by a jury after the game) do not influence settlement of the live bet on offer.
10.25 Live bets are settled on the company’s own statistics which are based on the actual run of play. Unless otherwise stated, in live betting all bets on “Non-runners” will be void.
10.26 For live betting, the “Sportsbook Betting Rules” concerning game evaluation also apply. Exceptions are special bets, which are decided before the actual interruption. These are declared valid.
