GAA Sports (Gaelic Football & Hurling) Rules

Match betting

All bets are settled on the official result at the end of normal time (including any injury time). Extra time does not count unless specifically stated otherwise.

If a game is postponed, all bets will be void unless the game is played within 24 hours of the original start time.

If a match is no longer being played at the venue advertised, bets will stand as long as it takes place within the original county. This applies as long as the venue is not switched to the opponent's ground or to a venue outside of the original county.

Should a match be abandoned prior to completion, all markets on that match will be void, unless a definitive result for that market has already been determined prior to abandonment (e.g. First Goalscorer and First Score in Game).

Half-time/Full-time betting

Bets on this market are settled on the result at half time and the result at the end of normal time (including injury time).

Goalscorer betting

Bets on this market are settled on the first player to score a goal in the game within normal time.

Stakes are refunded on any player who takes no part in the match or who comes on as substitute after the first goal has been scored. Own goals do not count for First Goalscorer purposes and are ignored.

If the only goal scored within normal time is an Own Goal, No Goalscorer will be deemed to have been the successful outcome.

If a match is abandoned before the first goal is scored, all bets are void. This includes "No Goalscorer" bets as these are offered on the basis of the entire game being completed. If a match is abandoned after the first goal is scored, all bets stand.

Where there is a dispute concerning who scored the goals in a match, bets will be settled based on the result published by the official governing body immediately after the match is finished. Any subsequent corrections or amendments to this result will not apply for settlement purposes.

We try to offer a price on every player taking part in a particular game to score the first goal. If you wish to bet on a player who is not displayed on our list, please contact our Customer Support department.

Winning Margins betting

All bets are settled on the final result at the end of normal time (including any injury time). Extra time does not count.

The result of this market is determined by the winning team's points superiority. (1 goal = 3 points). For example, if the result of a game is Kerry 2 goals and 6 points (total points = 12) beat Dublin 1 goal and 7 points (total points = 10), then Kerry have won by 2 points.

Total Score in Game

All bets are settled on the final result at the end of normal time (including any injury time). Extra time does not count.

The result of this market is determined by the final points total of the game (1 goal = 3 points). For example, if the result of a game is Kerry 1 goal and 14 points (total points = 17) lose to Dublin 3 goals and 10 points (total points = 19), then the total score in the game is 36 points.

Handicap betting

GAA Handicap betting is in the form of a whole-point handicap (e.g. +/- 3points, +/- 7 points, etc.). Tie prices are also available.

The winning selection is determined by adding the handicap to the final points score.

A typical market will be:

  • Kerry (+3pts) 5/6
  • Dublin (-3pts) 5/6

If the final score in this fixture was Kerry 1 goal and 10 points (total points = 13) lose to Dublin 1 goal and 12 points (total points = 15) then, to determine the handicap result, simply add 3pts to Kerry's final score. This leaves the handicap result as Kerry 16 points, Dublin 15 points so "Kerry (+3pts)" would be the winning selection.

First/Last Scoring Play

This market is based on selecting the first or final scoring play and the team that will score it. For the purpose of this market, 'Dead Ball' will count as frees, penalties, sideline kicks/cuts, 45's/65's.

If a match is abandoned before there is a score, all bets are void.

If a match is abandoned after the first score has been registered, bets on the First Scoring Play will stand, as there will be a definitive result for the market. However, in any scenario where a game is not completed, the Last Scoring Play market will be void.

Player Total Points

This market is based on selecting Over or Under a given line for a player's contribution to his team's total points. Goals count as 3 points towards the player's total.

The player must start the match for which the price is offered, or all bets on that player will be void.

Added Time

The market is settled on the announcement of the minimum number of minutes of added time. This will be announced at the stadium over the public address system and repeated by the match commentator on the live broadcast. The amount of time actually played is irrelevant to this market - all bets are on the announcement.
