Winter Sports Rules

These rules cover winter sports such as cross-country skiing, alpine skiing, ski jumping and biathlon. Podium positions will count as official results, regardless of any subsequent disqualifications. If there is no podium ceremony, settlement will be determined in accordance with the official result declared by the governing body at the end of the event.

If a competitor or team doesn't start a race or tournament, bets placed on that competitor or team are considered to be losing bets. In this case, stakes on selections will not be refunded.

The dead heat rule applies to bets on an event where there is more than one winner, or the result is a draw or tie when no draw or tie price has been available.

Postponed or abandoned events

Any bets on an event not played on the scheduled date or played at a different venue, at the time the bet was struck, will be declared void unless an event is taking place in an Olympic Games or World Championships then bets.

If, for any reason, an Olympic or World Championship event is postponed or abandoned, all bets on that event will be void unless the event is completed before the closing ceremony of the games.
