GAELIC FOOTBALL AND HURLING (GAA)
All bets will be settled on the official result as declared by the relevant governing body.
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.
Abandoned/Postponed Matches –
All bets on postponed matches will stand provided the match is rearranged and played within 48 hours of the original scheduled start time.
Where a match is postponed and not played within 48 hours of the original scheduled start time, all bets will be void.
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).
Any bet reduced by an abandoned, postponed or re-arranged match will stand on the remaining selections.
Match Betting –
All bets will be settled on 60/70 minutes play respectively at the prices advertised.
The term 60/70 minutes play refers to the period of play which includes time added by the match officials for stoppages, but not scheduled extra time if played.
Any subsequent enquiries into the match result or later match disqualification will be ignored for settlement of match bets which will be settled on that days match result.
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 final points score.
A typical market will be:
Kerry (+3pts) 5/6 or 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), 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.
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
Half Time/Full Time –
Bets on this market are settled on the result at half time and the result at the end of normal time (including injury time).
Extra time does not count.
Goalscorers (First/Last/Anytime) –
Bets on this market are settled on the first player to score a goal in the game within normal time (i.e. including injury time but excluding extra time if played).
If a player comes on after the 1st goal is scored or does not take part in the match he is deemed a non-runner for the First Goalscorer market only.
Own goals do not count.
In the case of an own goal being scored first bets will be settled on the 2nd goalscorer.
In the case of the last goal being an own goal bets will be settled on the previous goal.
If the only goal scored within normal time is an Own Goal, then 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 our list, please ask a member of staff.
Winning Margin Betting –
Winning margin betting is from scratch.
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 Cork 1 goals and 6 points (total points = 9) beat Tyrone 1 goal and 3 points (total points = 6) then Cork have won by 3 points.
Total Match Points –
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 Cork 1 goal and 11 points (total points = 14) lose to Tyrone 2 goals and 10 points (total points = 16) then the total score in game is 30 points.
First/Last Scoring Play Markets –
This market is based on selecting the first scoring play and the team that will score it.
• Hurling – A point from placed ball means direct from a penalty, free, sideline ball or 65
• Football – A point from placed ball means direct from a penalty, free, sideline ball or 45
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.
In any scenario where a game is not completed, the Last Scoring Play market will be void.
Total Goals/Team Goals-
Own Goals will count for the settlement of the following markets:
Team to Score 1st Goal
Both Teams to Score a Goal
Total Match Goals
Player Points –
Player total points markets will be settled on the stated players total score (1 Goal = 3 Points) during normal time only, including injury time but excluding any extra time if played.
Tournament Outright Betting -
All in compete or not.
In the event of a team starting the competition but withdrawing from it for any reason all bets will stand.
Any bets accepted in error on matches in which Boylesports have not published or quoted prices on will be deemed void win or lose.
If two counties are engaged in Hurling and Football and no instructions have been given to identify what the customer selection is (e.g. no prices or sport) then the stakes will be split accordingly.
Where a county is engaged in senior and minor competitions, bets will be settled on the senior team unless otherwise stated.
For betting in running purposes the above rules apply unless stated otherwise.
When scores are displayed in running, every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the score and game time; however no liability is accepted for incorrect information displayed.
