    Pitcher Options:

    1. Listed Pitchers - both pitchers must start in order to have action.
    2. Selected Action - the pitcher of the team you have bet on must start in order to have action.
    3. Opposing Action - the pitcher of the opposite team you have bet on must start in order to have action.
    4. Action - there is action regardless of the starting pitcher.

    *Starting Pitcher = Pitcher who starts game and throws the first pitch for the team.
    *Choosing an action bet (options 2, 3, or 4) might lead to an adjusted price if the starting pitcher does not start the game since the original price was based on the listed (advertised) pitcher starting the game.
  • When betting on runlines, game totals, or team totals, both listed (advertised) pitchers must start, otherwise there is "No Action" or "Push/Cancel" on straight bets, and parlays drop to the next lower level

Horses

Fixed Odds Betting
  • Betting on Future Events i.e. Breeders Cup, Kentucky Derby, Preakness, etc.
  • If the horse that is betted upon does not qualify to enter the race, the bet is a loss.
Thoroughbred Betting
  • Bets can be placed on all thoroughbred tracks.
  • Betting is possible by Win, Place, Show, Exactas, Quinellas, Trifectas, Parlays and Daily Doubles.
Horse Rules
  • A time stamp will be placed on all bets.
  • All horse bets must be placed prior to two (2) minutes before the tracks published post time. All bets placed past this cutoff will be cancelled.
  • Track Odds will be paid on winning horses up to a maximum of:

    Straight bets: Win 20-1, Place 8-1, Show 4-1
    Exotics: Exactas, Daily Double, Trifectas, etc. 100-1 bets will be graded by horse name and not the program or post position number.
  • When betting horses with an entry, and you want action on all horses in the entry, you must choose the entry, i.e. 1X (Entry), and not an individual horse. For example, in a race with 1, 1A, and 1X, you must place a bet on 1X to guarantee action on both 1 and 1A. By placing a bet on 1X, you still have action even if one of the horses in the entry scratch.
  • You also have the option of placing a bet on an individual horse (i.e. 1 or 1A) in an entry which means you only want action on the entry bet if the individual horse selected does not scratch. If the individual horse selected runs, your bet will be treated the same as a bet on 1X (Entry).
  • Exotic bets will only be paid in cases where the particular track offers this type of bet. If an exotic bet is placed on a race that does not offer it, the bet will be refunded.
Horse Matchups
  • All horses listed in the matchup must start in order for there to be action. However, in cases where the matchups are against "the field," (meaning all other horses in the race) and a horse scratches that is part of "the field," the bet will still stand.
  • The winner of a horse matchup is the horse with the best finish placement.

Harness Racing is not available at this time.

Golf

General Golf Betting Rules
  • Bets on a golfer who does not play in the tournament are graded as No Action, and all monies refunded.
  • A golfer is deemed to have played once he or she has teed off. In the event of a player withdrawing after having teed off, bets on that player will be lost.
  • Bets will be settled using the official Tour websites (www.pgatour.com, www.europeantour.com, www.lpga.com etc) .

Rules for specific type of golf bets offered: Win, Top 3-4-5-10, Top Nationality or any other kind of group betting (4 or more players)

  • We offer varying odds for a golfer to Win, Place (Top 3, 4 or 5), Top 10 and numerous types of group betting (Top European, Winner without Tiger Woods, etc) in a tournament.
  • If the golfer does not tee off to start the tournament, the bet will be "No Action" or "Push/Cancel" and all money will be refunded.
  • If player withdrawals constitute 1/5th (20%) or more of original amount of listed players - ALL bets are cancelled.
  • On the odds to win, the "Field" includes all players not offered by name.
  • In the event of a tie, (except for Tournament Winner betting), the player with the lowest score in the last round played will be declared the winner. Should there still be a tie between 2 or more players the odds are paid proportionally. This is determined by taking the odds for the bet and adding 1 for the stake. The result is divided by the number of golfers involved in the tie, and then multiplied by the number of winning positions occupied.
    • i.e. If 3 golf contestants tie for 4th in a tournament the payout would be (1 + odds) divided by 3 [number of contestants tied for 4th] multiplied by 1 [number of winning positions occupied - 4th place only].
    • i.e. If 3 golf contestants tie for 3rd in a tournament the payout would be (1 + odds) divided by 3 [number of contestants tied for 3rd] multiplied by 2 [number of winning positions occupied - 3rd and 4th positions].
  • If a tournament does not go the specified number of completed holes (usually 72), and is shortened by the tournament officials, the leader at the end of the number of holes specified by the officials will be the winner, unless there is no further play or only part of a round completed after a bet has been placed, in which case that bet will be canceled. Tournament must go at least 54 holes.

Betting on match-ups between golfers (2 or 3 Players)

  • The winner of the match-ups will be decided by which golfer ends up with the lowest score having played equal rounds. Both golfers must tee off in the tournament or the bet will be "No Action" or "Push/Cancel" and all money will be refunded. If one of the golfers misses the cut, withdraws, or is disqualified during the tournament, the opposing golfer wins the match-up.
  • Often "Tournament" match-ups are updated after each round. These new odds will be for the entire remainder of the tournament including the possible event of a playoff.
  • If a player is disqualified during either the 3rd or 4th rounds, when the other player in the match bet has already missed the cut, the disqualified player will be considered the winner.
  • Settlement will be on the player achieving the highest placing (lowest score) at the end of the tournament. If the number of rounds played is reduced, as in the case of bad weather, bets stand, providing that an official tournament winner is declared.
  • 3-Way match-ups, also known as 3-balls will be decided by the lowest score at the end of the round (18 holes). If a player starts the round and withdraws he is considered a loser but if a player withdraws before the start of the round then all group bets will be cancelled. In the event of starting groups being rearranged, bets will be settled on the original groups.
  • 3-Ball Tie Breakers: Should in the event 2 or more players tie, the player with the most birdies will be declared the winner. If still 2 or more players are tied, only bets on the tied players after use of the 1st tie breaker will be cancelled and monies refunded.
  • To miss/make the cut:
    For some tournaments we may offer prices for players to make the cut (take part in the final rounds), or miss the cut (fail to qualify for the final rounds).

Betting on 2-Way match-ups with a Tie: Player A, Player B, Tie

  • The winner will be decided by the lowest score at the end of the round (18 holes). In the event of a Tie at the end of the round (18 holes) bets made on both players will be a loss, thus making the Tie a winner.

Soccer

Moneyline with Tie (a.k.a. 1X2).
  • This is the most common odds used by The Greek Sportsbook where the bettor (punter) has three choices: team A, team B, or a tie. This type of betting makes sense, since in regular season it is possible for a match to end in a tie. If you bet on a team in this scenario and the outcome of the match at the end of 90 minutes is a tie, the bet is a loss. If you bet on the tie, and one of the teams wins at the end of 90 minutes, the bet is a loss.

Important Note

  • The Greek Sportsbook mainly uses Moneyline with Tie type of odds (a.k.a. 1X2). Unless otherwise specified, all bets are for regulation time (first 90 minutes) only. Different bookmakers apply different sets of rules with regards to soccer betting. Please make sure you understand The Greek Sportsbook full set of rules before betting on soccer.

To Advance Betting

  • For competitions such as the World Cup or FA Cup a two option only line may be quoted. This is a bet on a team to advance, whether they win in 90 minutes, in an extra time period, or in a penalty shootout. There is no possibility of a tie.
In Play (or Live) Betting
  • For popular events, the game itself may be opened again for betting after it is has started. Please note that this is ALWAYS AN ADJUSTED GAME PRICE. It is not a bet to win a certain half, such as may be offered for American football or basketball.
Proposition (Exotic) Betting
  • All proposition bets are for 90 minutes only. This includes:
    • Correct score - where you must correctly predict the final score of the game.
    • Halftime/fulltime - For example if you bet USA/Draw as your halftime/fulltime option then USA must be winning at half time, and a draw at 90 minutes for your bet to be a winner.
    • First/Last goal scorer - where you must correctly predict the player who will score the first (or last) goal. This comprises two separate markets and you must clearly state whether you wish to bet on a player to score the first OR the last goal. Any bets accepted without first or last goalscorer stipulated will be deemed to be bets on the first goalscorer market. Bets on players who take no part in the game will be void. Bets on first goal scorer, where the selection does not play until after the first goal has been scored will be void. Bets on first goal scorers where the selection is substituted or sent off before the first goal is scored will be treated as losers. For last goal scorer purposes, should a player take any part in the game, then the bet shall stand. Own goals do not count for purposes of first/last goal scorers. Prices for players not quoted are always available on request, and will count as winners if they score the first/last goal.
    • Player to score at anytime - where you must correctly predict a player to score at any time in 90 minutes play. If a player takes no part in a game then bets will be void.
    • First half betting - this is on the result of the game as it stands at the end of the first half. Please note that this includes three options and you will notice that the draw can be a favorite for first half betting. Should the game be abandoned prior to half time then all bets shall be deemed void. However, if the game is abandoned after the half time result is known then all bets will stand. Total goals - where you must correctly predict the number of goals in the game. This market will typically have three outcomes; 0 goals, 1 or 2 goals and 3 or more goals.
    • Booking Points - where you must correctly predict the number of booking points in a game. For betting purposes, a yellow card will be allocated 10 points and a red card allocated 25 points. The maximum points any individual player can accumulate is 35 points. This market will typically have three outcomes, for example; 25 points or under, between 30 to 40 points and 45 points or over. In addition, booked players must be playing at the time of the booking.
    • Team to score first/next goal - where you must correctly predict the team to score the first goal. In the event of a game being bet in play then prices on team to score next goal will be available. Please note that there will also be an option for no first/next goal in this market.
    • Total Corners - where you must correctly predict the number of corners taken in a match. Corners awarded but not taken will not count towards the total. This market will typically have three outcomes, for example; 10 corners or less, exactly 11 corners, 12 or more corners.
    • Time of first goal - where you must correctly predict the time of the first goal. Please note that there
    • Total Shirt Numbers - where you must correctly predict the aggregate number of the goal scorers' shirt numbers for all the goal scorers in the match. For example, in a match between Everton and Liverpool, Liverpool won the match 3 - 0. Luis Suarez scored two goals (Suarez wears shirt number 7) and Stewart Downing 1 goal (shirt number 19). Therefore the aggregate number for this match was 33 (7 + 7 + 19).
Soccer Rules
  • All odds are subject to fluctuation and amendment and are based on the result at full-time. The terms full-time, 90 minutes play, and normal time are all used to denote the period of play that includes injury time but not extra time, penalty shoot-outs, etc.
  • Bets will be accepted up to the advertised kick-off time. If a bet is inadvertently accepted which includes a match after its kick-off time, the bet will be considered past-post and voided accordingly. Game date and times posted are for guidance purposes only and are not guaranteed to be 100% accurate.
  • Total Goals Betting - Betting on game totals (over/under) only include goals scored in regulation time. (First 90 minutes)
  • Outright Betting - Where there are odds quotes for Outright as well as 90 minutes play (i.e. Cup Finals, etc.) unless "to win outright" or qualifying price has been laid, all bets are settled on 90 minutes of play.
  • Divisional Betting - In divisional betting, the finishing position of teams at the end of the scheduled program of matches will determine placing with no allowance for play-offs or subsequent enquiries by the respective leagues.
  • Postponed Games - If a game is postponed and rescheduled to occur within 48 hours of the original start time, all bets stand. If rescheduled for more than 48 hours later, all single bets are void and bets refunded while affected multiple bets will be recalculated excluding that leg.
  • Abandoned Games - Should a match be abandoned before 90 minutes of play then all bets will be declared void and bets refunded WITH THE EXCEPTION OF:
    • bets involving first goalscorer and next goalscorer, provided the first/next goal has been scored before the match is abandoned,
    • Bets involving time of first goal, where the time of the first goal has been determined before the match is abandoned.
    • Bets involving result at half time (not including half time/full time betting), where the half time result is known.
  • If a match is suspended and an official result is declared immediately (same day) by the ruling body, we will grade the match as a result declared by the ruling body. This scenario is not considered an abandoned match.

If changes are subsequently made due to appeals or decisions of the governing body unrelated to the original finishing order (i.e. penalties for rules infractions, dangerous driving, etc.) the original results will still be deemed as the official results for grading purposes. Appeals and administrative penalties are not applicable for betting purposes.
  • A driver must start for action. If the driver withdraws prior to the start of the race then bets on said driver will be refunded. If he withdraws after the start or is replaced by another driver all bets on that driver will stand.

In a case where the starting driver is replaced during the race with another driver from the same team, the position the new driver finishes in will be awarded to the original driver. This holds for betting on win odds and/or match-ups.
