Badminton betting Rules

  1. Outright Betting is non-runner no-bet, and may be subject to a Rule 4 (Deduction).
  2. Where applicable the podium presentation will determine the settlement of bets. Subsequent disqualifications and/or appeals will not affect bets.
  3. Match Betting – In the event of any of the named players in a match changing before the match starts then all bets void.
  4. In the event of a match starting but not being completed, or where a match is played under a specific time limit ruling and not completed as a result, then all bets will be void, unless the specific market outcome is already determined, or unless there is no conceivable way the game and/or match could be played to its natural conclusion without unconditionally determining the result of a specific market.
  5. For example, a game is abandoned at 20-17: bets on Over/Under 37.5 Game – Total Points are settled as winners/losers respectively, since any natural conclusion to the game would have yielded at least 38 points.
  6. Total Point Betting (Match and Player – including Alternatives) – markets are based on the statutory number of games being played. In the event of the statutory number of games being changed or differing from those offered for betting purposes then all bets are void. For all such markets, where a Setting Option is implemented in the form of point based tie-break/decider, this will be counted as one point for settlement purposes.
  7. Handicap Betting (Games and Points – including Alternatives) – Markets are based on the statutory number of games being played. In the event of the statutory number of games being changed or differing from those offered for betting purposes then all bets are void.

Live Betting

  1. In-Play Point Betting is offered for a player to win the nominated point. In the event of the point not being played, due to the game or match ending, all bets on that point will be void. If the nominated point is awarded as a penalty point, all bets on that point will be void.
  2. Current/Next Game Leader After: If the quoted number of points is not reached in the specified game, then the team/player who wins the game will be settled as the winner.
  3. Game Betting – The game must be completed for bets to stand, unless the specific market outcome is already determined.
  4. Correct Game Score – Bets are void if the statutory number of games are not completed, or are changed.
