Aside from the following special betting rules, the common betting rules apply. The special rules will take precedence over the common rules nevertheless.

1.) Match Betting Who will win the match? All match betting will be settled in accordance with official competition rules. In matches affected by adverse weather, bets will be settled according to the official result. This includes matches affected by a mathematical calculation such as the Duckworth-Lewis method. If there is no official result, all bets will be void. In the case of a tie, if the official competition rules do not determine a winner then dead-heat rules will apply. In competitions where a bowl off or super over determines a winner, bets will be settled on the official result. In First Class Matches, if the official result is a tie, bets will be settled as a dead-heat between both teams. If the Draw was offered bets on the draw will be settled as losers. If a match is abandoned due to external factors, then bets will be void unless a winner is declared based on the official competition rules. If a match is cancelled then all bets will be void if it is not replayed or restarted within 36 hours of its advertised start time.

2.) Venue Change If the match is no longer playing at the venue advertised, your bet will still stand. This applies 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).

3.) Match Betting: Double Chance Will the match result be either of the three options given? A tie will be settled as a dead heat. All match betting will be settled in accordance with official competition rules. If there is no official result, all bets will be void.

4.) Match Betting: Draw No Bet Who will win the match given that all bets will be void if the match is a draw? A tie will be settled as a dead heat. All match betting will be settled in accordance with official competition rules. If there is no official result, all bets will be void.

5.) Top Batsman In An Innings Winning bets must predict the top runscorer in an individual innings of any match. Bets stand provided that 60 overs are bowled in a Test Match or First Class innings, 25 overs have been bowled in a One Day International or 50 over domestic innings, 10 Overs must be completed in an innings for a 20/20 match. Runs scored in a Super Over do not count. All players in the starting 11 are eligible whether they bat in the innings or not. Any bet on a player not in starting 11 will be void. If a player retires his innings, for whatever reason, and does not resume, his score at the time of retirement will be deemed his total. In the event that two or more players score the joint highest number of runs, then we will enforce Dead Heat Rules.

6.) Top Bowler In An Innings Winning bets must predict the top wickettaker in an individual innings of any match. Bets stand provided that 60 overs are bowled in a Test Match or First Class innings, 25 overs have been bowled in a One Day International or 50 over domestic innings, 10 Overs must be completed in an innings for a 20/20 match.

In the event that two or more players take the joint highest number of wickets, then we will enforce Dead Heat Rules.

7.) Number Of Runs/Wickets In A Session Winning bets must predict the number of runs or wickets in a session. The first session is the period of play between the Start and Lunch. The second session is the period of play between Lunch and Tea. The final session is the period of play between Tea and Close of Play. In the event of less than 20 overs being bowled in a session, all bets will be void. If both teams bat in a session then bets will be settled on the combined total of runs or wickets.

10.) Run Outs/6's/4’s/Wides /Stumpings/Ducks occurring in a super over do not count.

11.) Individual Batsman Runs Winning bets must predict the number of runs scored by an individual batsman in an innings or match. Bets are void if the batsman does not face a ball in the innings.

15.) Highest First Wicket Partnership Which team will score the most runs before losing their first wicket? If the batting team reaches the end of their allotted overs, reaches their target or declares before the first wicket falls, the result will be the total amassed.

In limited overs matches, bets will be void if the innings has been reduced due to external factors, including bad weather, unless settlement has already been determined. In First Class matches the market refers only to each team’s first innings. Both teams must bat.

16.) Most Sixes Which team will hit the most sixes? In limited overs matches, bets will be void if it has not been possible to complete at least 50% of the overs scheduled to be bowled due to external factors, including bad weather, unless settlement of the bet has already been determined. Bets will also be void if one team faces less overs than the opposition, unless settlement of bet had already been determined before reduction of overs took place. Only sixes scored from the bat (off any delivery - legal or not) will count towards the total sixes. Overthrows and extras do not count. Sixes scored in a super over do not count.
