If an irregularity in either betting patterns or event outcome is confirmed by the governing authority, third-party or Us, We retain the right to void and/or refund any staked amount placed on the event at our discretion. In the case that any bets have already resulted, We retain the right to resettle the event outcome and confiscate any winnings associated.

Where changes to the General Betting Rules are material, reasonable notice of the changes will be provided to You by publication on Our Websites.

In the event of a discrepancy or conflict, the Special Betting Rules prevail over the General Betting Rules. Should there be a break in communication after you place Your bet and/or You receive no visual confirmation that a bet has been successfully placed, but the bet is correctly received on our servers, the bet shall be deemed as valid and accepted. You will be informed whether You have won or lost once communication is re-established and result determined.
