General

We reserve the right to correct palpable errors and also to disqualify bets the bona fides of which do not satisfy us and to pursue to a conclusion any enquiries deemed necessary.

Bets are accepted on football matches where Boylesports offer prices. Where a bet is taken on a match where no prices are on offer all bets on that selection will be void and treated as a non-runner.

Should a match be brought forward, bets will stand provided they are placed before the kick-off or up to 5 minutes after the match has started as long as a goal has not been scored or a player sent off. Should a match be postponed or re-arranged, bets will only stand if played on the following day, otherwise selections will be void. Sunday matches (and scheduled Monday matches where included on the coupon) are accepted. This rule applies only to the Saturday coupon.

Bets are accepted up to 5 minutes after kick-off once no goal has been scored or players sent off.  Any bets placed after this time would be void if not placed via available in-running markets.  If a bet is placed mistakenly on the wrong list providing it is acceptable on another list, the bet will remain valid. Ninety minutes playing time (including injury time) will decide the result of all matches. Extra time does not count, except where a market specifically allows for this e.g. ‘’To Win Outright’’ &’’To Win on Penalties’’.

Perms are accepted provided instructions are clear. Pools panel verdicts are not accepted.

Prices subject to flucuation

All prices are subject to fluctuation up to the kick-off. All football bets will be settled using the correct prices at the time the bet is placed.

Abandoned and Void

If a match is abandoned before 90 minutes playing time has elapsed that match will be void (unless it is restaged during that week, up to and including Sunday, when the 90 minute score will govern settlement) and wagers will stand on the remaining selections in the bet. Individual markets within that match will also be void unless they have been resolved at the time of abandonment, i.e. First player to score if a goal has been scored. Bets originally containing the correct number of selections but including void or postponed matches will stand on the remaining selections in the bet. Should a team play a different opposition to that on the coupon, or should a venue be reversed, forecasts for that match will be declared void. Should a match be changed from a home venue to a neutral one forecasts for that match will stand.

Acceptance of Bets

All football bets will be settled on 90 minutes play (also referred to as Full-time and normal time). This denotes the period of play which includes time added by the Referee for injuries and other stoppages. This does not include scheduled extra time, or Penalty shoot-outs, if played. In matches where penalty shoot outs or extra time are due to take place, all bets are settled on 90 minutes unless an Outright price is specifically requested and confirmed on the betting slip at the time the bet is placed. For matches played at neutral venues, the team listed on the left are still classed as the ‘home’ team for settlement purposes. A club team playing a European competition is classed as playing at home if the fixture is moved from the team’s usual ground to another ground within their national boundaries, e.g. when
Arsenal played their Champions League home ties at Wembley. If a match is no longer played at the venue advertised, bets will stand as long as the venue remains in the same country and is not switched to the opponent’s ground. Should this occur, all bets will be void. Where Boylesports have not quoted prices on a match, any single bet on that match will be void and treated as a non-runner in multiple bets.

Cards/Bookings Markets

A) Tournaments

The total number of bookings that occur within a specified UEFA or FIFA tournament: the official result from the UEFA or FIFA website will be used for settlement

B) Matches

All Cards and Bookings markets below are for 90 minutes only, so any bookings that take place in extra time do not count for betting purposes. Cards cancelled by the referee during the course of the match, cards shown to non-active players and cards shown before kick-off, during the half time interval, or after the final whistle do not count. These bets cannot be combined with any other bets on the same match. Should this bet be accepted in error, it will be settled by equally dividing the stake unit where the related outcomes clash.

Booking Index

Bets are settled by adding the points per card issued within 90 minutes: Yellow card is 10 points, Red card is 25 points, and a maximum of 35 points can be awarded per player. Typical starting values might be; under 26 points, between 26 and 46 points and over 46 points. These values may fluctuate as the match progresses.

Clean Sheets

Betting is available on a team to win with a clean sheet (1-0,2-0,3-0 etc) , no clean sheets (1-1,2-1,1-2,4-2 etc) or both teams to keep a clean sheet (0-0) . In the event of a match being abandoned all bets will be void UNLESS both teams have scored at least one goal at the time of abandonment.

Correct Score Betting

Bets are settled on the final score of a particular match, or on a number of matches, at the end of 90 minutes play.

Divisional Betting

Bets are settled on the final League positions at the end of the scheduled season, irrespective of what happens in the Divisional play-offs, with bets on ‘who will win’ a League being settled on the team who lift the trophy. Bets will stand on any team that does not complete all of its fixtures.

Double chance

Bets are settled on the following possible outcomes in a specified football match - e.g. Arsenal versus Chelsea would appear as: Home/Draw - Arsenal to win/Match to end in a draw, Away/Draw – Chelsea to win/Match to end in a draw, Home/Away - Arsenal to win/Chelsea to win, Normal 90 minutes betting rules apply.

Draw No Bet

A reassessed set of odds betting without the draw are quoted. Should a match end in a draw after 90 minutes playing time, stakes will be returned.

Extra Time betting

Extra time is defined as any scheduled period of play between the end of normal time (i.e. 90 minutes play plus any time added on for stoppages) and the end of the game. Extra time does not include penalty shoot outs. All extra time betting markets, such as ‘correct score’, or ‘time of first goal’, will start from the beginning of extra time and not include normal time. For example, if the game finishes 2-2 at the end of normal time and there are no goals scored in extra time, the ‘extra time correct score’ market will be settled as ‘0-0’.

1st Half Result/2nd Half Result

Customers are asked to predict the result for each separate half in one 90-minute game. For example if Lincoln play Dagenham and lead 1-0 at half time and the game then finishes 1-0 after 90 mins, the result will be settled as Lincoln winning the first half and the draw as the result in the second half.

First Half Corners

Bets settled on the total corners TAKEN, not awarded. Should a match be abandoned bets will stand if the ‘over’ total has been exceeded otherwise all bets will be void. All bets will stand if a match is abandoned after half time.

Goalscorer Bets

All goalscorer bets are offered on selected major games as advertised. Bets are settled on the player to score in the match within 90 minutes. We will make every effort to quote prices for all probable players. However, prices for unquoted players will always be available on request and those players will count as winners in the event that they score. If the only goal scored within 90 minutes is an own goal, then ‘no goalscorer’ will be deemed to have been the 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 90 minutes being played in the game. If the match is abandoned after the first goal is scored, all bets will stand. Where there is a dispute concerning who scored the goals in a match, settlement will be based upon the first result declared by the Press Association (PA). Any subsequent amendments made by the PA to their initial decision will not apply. If the result is not immediately available from the PA, then the first results published by the official governing body will be used for settlement purposes. Any subsequent corrections or amendments to the initial result will not apply.

A) First goalscorer

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 for settlement purposes. On some matches the first goalscorer betting may be limited to one specific team.

B) Last Goalscorer

All players taking part at any point of the match are deemed to have played for the purposes of Last goalscorer bets, irrespective of whether they were on the pitch at the time the last goal is scored. Own goals do not count.

C) Score at any time/Score a hat-trick

All players taking part at any point of the match are deemed to have played for settling purposes. Own goals do not count.

When we have a match bet for two players in the same game, both players must start the match for bets to stand. If either player fails to start, all bets are void.

E) Tournament Goalscorer Match Bets

Bets stand if at least one player plays and scores. Bets are void if neither player takes part in the tournament or if both players finish on equal goals.

Half-Time Betting

Half-time betting is available on certain matches. Bets are settled on the result of the match at the end of the first half (i.e. at the end of 45 minutes, including injury time). Bets will be void if the match is abandoned. Singles and upwards are available.

Half-time/Full-time (Double result forecast betting)

Half-time/Full-time (Double result forecast) betting is available on most matches where Home/Away/Draw prices are quoted. Bets are settled based on the result of the match at both half-time and full-time (i.e. at the end of 45 minutes and 90 minutes, including injury time). Bets will be void if the match is abandoned prior to the completion of 90 minutes play. Singles and upwards are available.

Handicap betting

Handicap bets are settled on the basis that one of the teams is given a number of goal(s) or corner(s) start. Bets are settled by adding (or subtracting) the goal(s) or corner(s) start to the 90 minutes result.

Highest Scoring Premiership/F.A. Cup/Champions League Match

Bets are settled on the highest scoring match from the list quoted on the days stated. Should a match be postponed then a Rule 4 deduction may apply.

Highest Scoring Game

Bets on which game will produce the most goals on a given matchday; In the event of a tie, Dead Heat rules apply. Only the named games count for betting purposes. If five or more games are offered and two or more of the games are postponed, then all bets are void. If fewer than five games are offered and one or more of the games are postponed, then all bets are void.

Highest Scoring Team

How will my football bet on a cup tie be settled?

All football bets will be settled on 90 minutes play (also referred to as Full-time and normal time). This denotes the period of play which includes time added by the Referee for injuries and other stoppages. This does not include scheduled extra time, or Penalty shoot-outs, if played. In Cup matches where penalty shoot outs or extra time are due to take place, all bets are settled on 90 minutes unless an Outright (i.e. ‘To Qualify’ or ‘Cup Winner’) price is specifically requested and confirmed on the betting slip at the time the bet is placed.

 

GENERAL FOOTBALL RULES

Last team to score

Bets are settled on the team to score the last goal in a match. Own Goals DO count for this market, e.g. Chelsea are playing Spurs and the last goal is an own goal by a Chelsea player. Spurs are awarded the goal, so Spurs would be the winner in the ‘Last team to score’ market. Normal 90 minutes betting rules apply.

Man Of The Match - Live Sky matches

Man Of The Match markets for matches broadcast live on Sky Sports will be settled according to the result declared by Sky, unless otherwise stated in the individual market’s terms and conditions.

Marking of Coupon

Mark Fig.1 for a home team win. Mark Fig.2 for an away team win. Mark ‘X’ for a drawn game. Where a match is played on a neutral venue, for coupon marking purposes, the left hand team will count as the home side.

Money Back Specials

 

In certain matches Boylesports will offer a ‘’Money back Special’’ which means Boylesports will refund losing bets up to and including an amount specified by us providing certain events occur (for example Gerrard scores the last goal, 6 or more goals in the match ). Money back specials will only be applied to certain markets as specified by Boylesports, and these may vary with each offer.

Mythical Matches

Bets are settled on the team who scores the most goals in our mythical match market. Goals conceded by a quoted team do not count as goals. Should one of the mythical team’s matches be abandoned the bets will be void unless the team concerned has already outscored their mythical opponents at the time of abandonment. If both teams involved in a mythical match have their matches abandoned the bet will be void and the bet settled on the remaining selections if applicable. Example - a mythical match might be England vs. Argentina, when England are actually playing Scotland, and Argentina are actually playing Brazil. If England beat Scotland 2-0 and Brazil and Argentina draw 1-1, then the Mythical match score is 2-1 to England. If both teams score the same number of goals, then the ‘draw’ option is the winner.

Next team to Score

Bets are settled on the team to score the next goal in a match. Own goals do count for this market e.g. If Arsenal are playing Spurs and the first goal is an own goal by an Arsenal player then Spurs would be the winner in the first ‘Next team to score’ market. Normal 90 minutes betting rules apply.

Number of Corners

Bets are settled on the total number of corners within 90 minutes. The typical starting values are: Under 10, Between 10 and 12, Over 12. These values may fluctuate as the match progresses. The market is for 90 minutes only, so any corners that take place in extra time do not count for betting purposes. Corners awarded but not taken will not count for settling purposes. This bet cannot be combined with any other bets on the same match. Should this bet be accepted in error, it will be settled by equally dividing the stake unit where the related outcomes clash.

Number of Offsides

The result returned by OPTA will be used for settlement of this market. OPTA Sports Data supply official results to a wide range of media outlets, both in print and online

Penalty Markets

Markets offering odds on penalties being scored or missed will be settled with all selections as losers in the event of no penalty being awarded.

Penalty Shoot Outs

The in-play markets “Shootout winner”, “Outcome of Next Penalty”, “Sudden death?” and “Total penalties converted” apply only to the result of a penalty shootout. Penalties scored in normal time and/or extra time will not count for the purposes of this market. A shootout is deemed to have gone to sudden death if both sides have taken 5 penalties each and the score remains level. Sudden death rounds of one kick each are then taken until one team scores and the other team does not. In the event that a match does not go to a penalty shootout, all bets on these four in-play markets will be void.

Postponed/Re-arranged Matches

 A postponed match is void unless it is re-scheduled to commence within 24 hours of the original start time and this is confirmed within 12 hours of the original start time. In such circumstances where (a) void match(es) is/are included in an accumulator the bet will be settled on the remaining selections.

Prices Subject to Fluctuation

All prices are subject to fluctuation up to the kick-off. All football bets will be settled using the correct prices at the time the bet is placed. Premiership / FA Cup/ Champs League 0-0 Draws. Bets are settled on the total amount of 0-0 draws in the matches quoted on the days stated. Should a match be postponed/abandoned then ALL bets will be void unless the ‘or more’ total has been exceeded in the remaining games played.

Related Bets

First Player to Score/Correct Score Forecasts are accepted for any match where Correct Scores and First Player to Score betting is available. See special chart for a full list of odds and rules. Other related bets may not be combined where the result of one influences the outcome of another (i.e., Man. Utd. to win in 90 mins and Man. Utd. to win 2-1 is not permitted). Where taken in error such a bet will be settled with equal stakes on each result in proportion to the number of outcomes, e.g. a related treble would be settled as three single bets at one third the total stake for that bet.

Related Contingencies in one Match

Where we offer various betting opportunities from the same match (e.g. correct score, first player to score etc) these cannot be combined in accumulative bets where the outcome is related (except where special fixed prices are available for Scorecasts). Where an accumulative bet of this type has been accepted in error it will be settled by equally dividing the stake unit where the related outcomes clash:

EXAMPLE: A €10 Double:- Manchester United to win in 90 minutes play and Manchester United to win 2-1 is settled as 2 x €5 singles.

Result After XX Minutes

Betting on who is winning a match at specified times throughout the match. Markets are settled on the score at 14:59 for the 15 minute market; 29:59 for the 30 minute market; 59:59 for the 60 minute market and 74:59 for the 75 minute market.

Results

In the case of football and other sports, bets are settled on the official result published by the Press Association (PA), immediately after the match/event is finished. If the PA amends their decision after this period, all bets will stand on their original result. If the result is not immediately available from the
PA, the result published by the official governing body immediately the match/event is finished will be used for settling purposes. Any subsequent corrections or amendments to this result will not apply for settlement purposes.

Rules of Selection – ALL LISTS

Unless otherwise stated, singles and upwards are accepted on all lists, there is no Limit to the number of selections which may be chosen.

Sections List

Customers may select Homes, Draws or Aways or combine all three. Customers may either select 1, 2 or 3 result(s) from each section. Any bet not made to these stipulations will be paid as a Long List bet. The minimum odds offered will only apply if the correct number of selections are made with no void matches.

Handicap List

Selected team is given a 1 or 2 goal start (as indicated on the list). A reassessed set of odds are printed for this list. On this list Homes, Draws or Aways or a combination of all three may be selected. Singles and upwards are accepted.

Scorecasts (first player to score and correct score)

To win you must successfully forecast both the player who will score the first goal in a selected match and also the correct score after 90 minutes play. Scorecasts are available on all matches where correct score and first player to score odds are available. The Scorecast 0-0 and no goalscorer is settled as a correct score single. If your selected player joins the match after the first goal has been scored or does not take part in the game, Scorecast bets will revert to a single on the correct score. For first goalscorer purposes, own goals do not count, so in this circumstance, the Scorecast will be settled on the next goalscorer and correct score of the game. If the correct score is 1-0 and the goal is an own goal, Scorecast bets are settled as a correct score single. If a match is abandoned prior to the completion of 90 minutes and a goal has been scored, Scorecast bets are settled as first goalscorer singles. If no goal has been scored, all bets are void.

Season Handicap Betting

Season Handicap bets are settled by adding (or subtracting) the handicap start value to the final points total of all selections in the market at the end of the season. In the event of a tie, dead heat rules apply.

Season Match Betting

Season match bets are settled on which of two teams will place highest in the league at the end of the season. If teams finish level on points then the tie breaker used by the league (e.g. goal difference or head-to-head records) will decide the winner.

Settlement of Winners

Bets are settled at accumulative odds, palpable errors excepted, at the prices displayed at the time the bet is accepted. Odds are subject to fluctuation.

Staking of Bets

Enter the stake in the box at the base of each column to indicate the investment you require on each line of selections. If you use permutation, the unit stake should be written with the perm instructions alongside your selections, and the box at the base of the column left blank.

Time of acceptance of football bets

Bets will be accepted up to the advertised kick off time. Bets may also be accepted up to 5 minutes after kick-off time as long as a goal has not been scored, or a player sent off. Any bet accepted after the kick off where we offer betting in running, bets will stand and will be settled on the in vision price at the time of acceptance. In some matches we also offer betting in running prices on the result at 90 minutes. Normally bets are accepted up to the 88th minute, although this may change depending on the circumstances of the match. On certain occasions bets may also be taken during extra-time.

Time of first goal

For settlement purposes the 1st minute of the game is from 1 second to 59 seconds. The 2nd minute is from 1 minute to 1 minute 59 seconds and so on. For example, if a bet is placed on the first goal to be scored between 1 and 10 minutes and a goal is scored at 10 minutes 49 seconds, the bet is a loser as this falls within the 11 to 20 minutes time frame. If a goal is scored in injury time of the first half, the winning selection will be the 41-50mins bracket. If a goal is scored in injury time of the second half. The winning selection would be the 81-90 mins bracket. If the match is abandoned after the first goal has been scored then all bets will stand. If no goal has been scored all bets will be void.

Time of next home/away goal

In games played at a neutral venue, the home side will be deemed to be the first named one. For example, if an event is called ‘Holland vs Spain’, then Holland would be the ‘home’ team as they are named first and Spain would be the ‘away’ team. If a goal is scored in injury time of the first half, the winning selection will be the 41-50mins bracket. If a goal is scored in injury time of the second half. The winning selection would be the 81-90mins bracket.

Time of next match goal

If a goal is scored in injury time of the first half, the winning selection will be the 41-50mins bracket. If a goal is scored in injury time of the second half, the winning selection would be the 81-90mins bracket

Timing of corners and penalty kicks

For settlement purposes, the timing of any corners and penalty kicks will be based upon the time the kick was taken and not the time at which it was awarded.

Total Corners

Bets settled on the total corners TAKEN, not awarded. Should a match be abandoned bets will stand if the ‘over’ total has been exceeded otherwise all bets will be void.

Total Goals

On this list customers can predict how many goals will be scored in the individual games featured. Each match has three possible outcomes: 1 or less goals, exactly 2 goals or 3 or more goals. Should a match be abandoned before 90 minutes playing time has elapsed, that selection will be void unless 3 or more goals have already been scored at the time of abandonment.

Total Premiership / FA Cup/ Champions League Goals

Bets are settled on the total amount of goals scored in the matches quoted on the days stated. Should a match be postponed then a total of 2 goals will be allotted for that game. If a match is abandoned then either 2 goals or the total goals at the time of abandonment will be awarded (whichever is greater).
Should there be 3 or more postponed/abandoned premiership games then all bets will be void.

Total Premiership / FA Cup / Champions League Goals ‘Odd or Even’

Bets are settled on the total amount of goals scored in the matches quoted on the days stated. Should a match be postponed then a total of 2 goals will be allotted for that game. If a match is abandoned then either 2 goals or the total goals at the time of abandonment will be awarded (whichever is greater). If there are 2 or more postponed/abandoned premiership games then all bets will be void.

To Win Both Halves

The 90 minute match is treated as two separate 45 minute ‘mini-matches’ and therefore your selection must score more goals than the other team in each of the two halves. For example, if your selection scores in the first half of a match and the match finishes 1-0, although the first half was won 1-0, the score in the second 45 minutes was effectively 0-0 and therefore a draw. If this occurs, only the first half is considered to have been ‘won’ and therefore bets would be losers.
Should a match be abandoned ALL bets will be void.

Top League/Tournament Goalscorer

Bets placed on a player to be the top scorer in a given league are based on regular season games only. Any goals scored in subsequent play-off games do not count for betting purposes. Once a player is named in the squad and has the opportunity to play in the league that season, bets will stand. Bets placed on a player to be the top scorer in a given tournament will stand as long as the player is named in the squad and has the opportunity to play in the named tournament. If more than one player finishes on the same number of goals, then dead heat rules apply. Goals scored in Extra-Time will count, but goals scored within Penalty Shootouts will not count

Total Goals Odd or Even

Bets are settled on whether the total number of goals scored within 90 minutes, will be an odd or an even number. Extra-time and penalties do not count. If the total number of goals in a game is zero (i.e. the final score is 0 - 0) then “Even” is considered the winning selection. This bet cannot be combined with any other bets on the same match. Should this bet be accepted in error, it will be settled by equally dividing the stake unit where the related outcomes clash.

Tournament Winner and Top Goalscorer

Where we offer prices for a team/country to win a tournament outright and a player to be top goalscorer, prices cannot be combined, special prices are available for this. For example a €10 double on England to win World Cup 2014 and Rooney to be top goalscorer, the prices on this would not be multiple odds; a special price for this would be available.

Assist Betting

A) Assisted Goals

• Assists are awarded to the player from the goal scoring team, who makes the last touch to the goalscorer.

• In the event of a penalty or free kick, the player earning the penalty or free kick gets an assist if a goal is directly scored. However you cannot assist your own  goal.

• For any assists disputes, bets will be based on the decision of the Press Association (PA) immediately after the match is finished.

• Unlike First Goalscorer betting, own goals DO count in Assist Betting.

B) Unassisted Goals

• Winner of the First Assist market will be the player who is deemed to have assisted the 1st goal of the game, not the player to have the first assist of the game.

• If there is no assist for the 1st goal, 'First Goal Unassisted' will be deemed the winner. Bets will not oll onto the player who assists the 2nd Goal.

• In matches ending 0:0, 'No Goal' will be deemed the winner.

Friendly Matches

All friendly matches will be resulted as per the official result of the game as decided by the referee regardless of how much time is played.

Matches not Played as Listed

If a match venue is changed (other than to the away team's ground) then bets already placed will stand providing the home team is still designated as such. If the home and away team for a listed match are reversed (e.g. match is played at the original away team's ground) then bets placed based on the original listing will be void.

We will endeavour to identify on our Website all matches played at a neutral venue. For matches played at a neutral venue (whether indicated on our site or not), bets will stand regardless of which team is listed as the home team.

If an official fixture, lists different team details to those listed on our Website then bets will be void e.g. official fixture specifies in the team name, Reserves/Age Group e.g. Under 21's/Gender e.g. Women.

In all other cases bets stand, including instances where we list a team name without specifying the term 'XI' in the name
