Below are the General Rules as listed in the PlayNow Sports Betting Game Conditions. If any discrepancies between the General Rules as described below and the Game Conditions document, the latter will prevail.
The General Sports Rules as listed below apply to all sports unless otherwise stated in the specific rules for individual sports and events. Complete PlayNow Sports Rules and Regulations as well as PlayNow Sports Game Conditions can be found in the document links above.
Odds on PlayNow Sports are dynamic and always potentially subject to change (or removal) without prior notice.
Championship, league/tournament, cup/trophy competitions
Unless the Corporation specifies other terms, we will Settle 'Futures' or 'Outright' betting on the player or team that lifts the trophy.
Competitors with the same name
Where there is more than one competitor with the same surname and a Selection has not been otherwise identified, including by first name, team, or qualifying Odds, the competitor with the lowest advertised Odds will be taken as the Selection. If more than one of such competitors is offered at the lowest advertised Odds, then the wager will be divided between such competitors.
Fraud or suspicious activity, event rigging or fixing
Where there is evidence or suspicion of illegal or fraudulent activity including Ticket tampering, or of Odds, race, game, match or event rigging or fixing, we reserve the right to suspend your account and/or withhold payment, pending the outcome of any subsequent investigation or to declare bets on that event as void. Where evidence of rigging exists or where there is evidence of a series of bets each containing the same Selection(s) having been placed by or for the same individual or by a syndicate of individuals, we reserve the right to require claims for payment to be made to our customer support department.
This condition applies to bets placed after such announcement and prior to the revision of the offer in question. In the event of an injury being announced which affects the Odds of a bet, we reserve the right to void such bet, or amend the Odds for such bet to revised Odds taking into account the injury news.
Live scores and statistical information
Live scores and other statistical information provided for PlayNow Sports Betting are supplied through a third party and are indicative only; no responsibility will be accepted by the Corporation for bets placed on their basis.
For a parlay bet where one (or more) picks are deemed void and there remains at least one valid pick within the original parlay, those void picks will be reassigned Odds of 1.00 and the bet will otherwise stand. For a bet in which all picks are deemed void, the Player's wager on that bet will be returned.
Point Spread (Handicap) bets
In the event that the outcome of a 'Point Spread' (handicap) Selection Settles on the exact spread (line) offered in a bet, that Selection is deemed void, unless the bet specifically includes an exact spread (line) or tie Selection.
In the event that the Over/Under outcome of a 'Total' (Total Points, Total Goals, etc) Selection matches the exact total (line) offered in a bet, that Selection will Settle as a Push, unless the Market specifically includes an exact Total (line) Selection.
All outcomes within a 'Power Pick' must be correct, as specified in the posted terms, in order to win. 'Power Picks' cannot be parlayed with any other bets. We have the right to void any 'Power Pick' that is comprised of an event that is not completed (e.g. abandoned, postponed, or featured participant for player prop is Non-Starter) or otherwise made void.
Related Contingencies (Correlated Bets)
Parlay bets are not accepted where the outcome of one Selection contributes wholly or partly to the outcome of another. The Corporation will allow certain Markets to feature multiple outcomes which may be correlated at its discretion where the Corporation has accounted for such correlation in the Odds for that bet (such bets include but are not limited to 'Power Picks' and 'Match Result/Total Points' or 'Point Spread/Total Points' doubles). A correlated parlay bet that is initially taken on PlayNow.com without accounting for correlation will be considered a bet taken in error and subject to section 18 of the PlayNow Sports Betting Rules and Regulations. Further, where the correlated events are resolved at different times, the Corporation reserves the right to Settle the bet with the Odds for the second or subsequent bets within the parlay being determined at each individual stage.
A 2-Selection parlay (double) on the Vancouver Canucks to win the Pacific Division and the Los Angeles Kings to qualify for a Wild Card position is taken in error with the total Odds not taking into account the correlation of the related outcomes. The Corporation may Settle or Resettle with revised Odds taking into account the correlation based on the date at which the correlated bet was placed.
A 2-Selection parlay (double) on Canucks to win the Western Conference Finals and Canucks to win the Stanley Cup Finals is taken in error without taking into account the correlation of the related outcomes. The Corporation may Settle or Resettle the bet with the Odds for Canucks to win the Stanley Cup adjusted to the opening Odds offered by the Corporation after the Western Conference Final has concluded.
Normal mathematical rounding (round up for a half cent or more and round down if less than a half cent) is used to present numbers that are more than two decimal places long. To avoid potential rounding issues, Odds and winnings are calculated out to 12 decimal places.
Top Goal Scorer/ Point Scorer bets
Top goal scorer/point scorer in a competition will be Settled in accordance with the Dead Heat Reduction Rule if players finish on the same number of goals/points scored, regardless of whether an official result is determined by other means by the sports ruling body.
If an event is no longer taking place at the venue advertised, bets will still stand as long as the venue has not been changed to the opponent's ground (or in the case of international matches, as long as the venue remains in the same country). However, the Corporation reserves the right to void any bet where it is determined that a change of venue has had a significant impact on the Odds of the match.
If an event is postponed but completed before the end of the next calendar day, event locale time, bets on that event will stand. Bets are made void on a postponed event not completed before the end of the next calendar day after the original official event start time event locale time.
An event cut-off date and time for placing bets is displayed for every event. The cut-off time may be revised by the Corporation in its discretion.
