Market / Bet Offers

Point Spread / Handicap

“Point Spread” or “Handicap” Markets/Bet Offers are where it is possible to bet on whether the chosen outcome will be victorious once the listed handicap (line) is added/subtracted (as applicable) to the game/match/period/total score to which the bet refers to. In those circumstances where the result after the adjustment of the handicap line is exactly equal to the betting line, then all bets on this offer will be declared void. Example: a bet on -3.0 points will be declared void if the team chosen wins the match by exactly 3 goals difference (27-24,30-27, 23-20, etc). Any reference in this section to the term “margin” is intended to be understood as the outcome emerging from the subtraction of the goals/points scored by the 2 teams/participants.

Unless otherwise stated all handicaps/spreads listed on DraftKings site are to be calculated based on the result from the start of the listed match/period to the end of the specified match/period. It is however customary that for certain handicap bet offers in specific sports (Asian Handicap in Soccer), only the outcomes obtained from the time of bet placement until the end of the listed timeframe will be taken into consideration, thus disregarding any goals/points scored before the time the bet was placed and accepted. Any bet offer with these characteristics will be clearly displayed on site and highlighted in the user’s Bet History with the score at the time of bet placement.

  • 2-way Point Spread / Handicap Example: Team A (-7.5) vs Team B (+7.5)

    • Team A is given a -7.5 point handicap in the game. For the bet to be won, Team A must win the game with a margin equal or bigger than the listed handicap/line/spread (ie. 8 points or more).
    •  Team B is given a +7.5 point advantage in the match. For the bet to be won, Team B must either win the game, tie the game, the game finish in a draw or not lose with a margin equal or bigger than their listed advantage (ie. lose with a 7 point or less margin).

 The “Point Spread” or “Handicap” can also be referred to as the “Puck Line” in Hockey or “Run Line” in Baseball.

The “Money Line” is a 2 selection bet offer based on the outcome of the game listed. The Money Line is inclusive of Overtime and is simply the selection of who will win the game or event.

Total Points/Goals/Runs
The “Total Points/Goals/Runs” is a 2-selection bet offer based on the total number of points/goals/runs scored in a game or event by the competitors. The “Total” is set at a specific “line” with outcomes listed as either Over or Under the listed amount. As with Point Spread/Handicap betting, in those circumstances where the result of the game or event Total points/goals/runs scored is exactly equal to the betting line, then all bets on this offer will be declared void. Example: an offer where the betting line is 128.0 points and the match ends with the result 64-64 will be declared void.

“Totals” can also be set on any number of predefined occurrences (e.g. goals, points, corners, rebounds, penalty minutes, etc.).

A “Win/Place” or “Each Way” bet (aka EW) refers to a bet where the chosen selection must either Win or else Place within the payout terms. The bet is divided in two parts (the “Win” part and the “Place” part) of an equal stake or wager. Settlement of such bets will take into account the applicable rules governing the “Win” and “Place” bets, namely the Sport-specific rules as well as any applicable ‘Dead Heat Reductions’

Prop Markets / Bet Offers

Virtual / Fantasy Match Ups
Fantasy/Virtual “Matches” or “Head to Heads” are implicit match-ups where the performances of two or more participants/teams which are not directly confronting each other in the same match/event/round are compared. Settlement will be based on the number of times each participant records a predefined occurrence (e.g. goals) in the respective match. The following criteria will be used to determine the settlement of these type of offerings:

  1. Unless specifically stated the bets refer to the next official match/event/round (as applicable) that the listed participants/teams are scheduled to take part in.
  2. All relative matches/events must be completed on the same day/session which the match/event/round is scheduled to be completed for bets to stand, except for those offers the outcomes of which has been decided prior to the abandonment and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, which will be settled according to the decided outcome.
  3. Results for these offers will only take into account occurrences deriving from the actual play. Results attributable to walk-overs as well as other decisions as specified in clauses 2, 3 and 4 of Results Settlement will not be taken into consideration.
  4. Should the aforementioned criteria be inconclusive in determining the outcome for these offers, the following criteria will be progressively referenced to in order to settle the offering:

    2. Result Settlement rules

Bets will be settled as void should it still be impossible to determine a winning outcome.

Player Props – Over/Under
Over/Under bets on classification of participants in performances/events must be interpreted as follows: “Over” means a worse or lower position while “Under” means a better or higher position. Example: A bet on a player’s classification in a tournament with an Over/Under line 2.5 will be settled as Under if the player classifies first or second. All other placements will be settled as Over.

Player Props – Head to Head
Head to Head bet offers on classification of participants in performances/events will list the specified stat category in the betting offer. Settlement of such bet offers will match official scoring statistics of the sport, league or governing body from which the event takes place.

“Correct Score” (aka Result Betting) is where it is possible to bet on the (partial or definite) exact score of a match or event.

Winning Margin
“Winning Margin” (aka Result Betting) is where it is possible to bet on the final result of a game or event and select the correct ‘band’ of points between the winning team and losing team. For example, if you think the Patriots will win, but the game will be close, pick the New England Patriots 1-6 Points Winning Margin (where the Patriots winning by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 points results in a winning selection).

Odd/Even
“Odd/Even” is where it is possible to bet on the (partial or definite) amount of a predefined occurrence (e.g. goals, points, corners, rebounds, penalty minutes, etc.).”Odd” is 1,3,5 etc.; “Even” is 0,2,4 etc.

“Half time/Full time” is where it is possible to bet on the result in half time and the final outcome of a match, game or event.. E.g. if at Half time the score is 45-45 and the match ends 103-101, the winning outcome is Tie / Away Team (the team scoring 103). The bet is void if the regular time of the match is played in a different time format than those listed in the bet (i.e. other than two halves). For Baseball, Half Time is defined as the first 5 innings of a game. Similarly, Period Betting for hockey is available (ie 1st Period Result and 60 Minute Result).

Draw No Bet
“Draw No Bet” is where it is possible to bet on either the home team or the away team. It is also common practice to refer to “Draw No Bet” in cases where no draw odds are offered. Should the specific match contain no winner (E.g. match ends as a draw), or the particular occurrence not happen (E.g. First Goal, Draw No Bet and match ends 0-0) the stakes will be refunded.

Double Chance
“Double Chance” is where it is possible to bet simultaneously on two (partial or definite) outcomes of a match or event, where 3 outcomes are possible (ie a 90 minute soccer match). The options are: Home/Draw, Home/Away and Draw/Away.

Race to ‘X’ Bets

If the offer lists a timeframe (or any other period restriction) it will not include any other points/goals/events tallied from other parts of the event/match which are not related to the mentioned timeframe. Should the listed score not be reached within the stipulated timeframe (if any), all bets will be declared void, unless otherwise stated.

First/Next Occurrence Bets
Bets on “Winner of Point X / Scorer of Goal X” and similar offers refer to the team/participant scoring/winning the listed occurrence. For the settlement of these offers, no reference to events happening prior to the listed occurrence will be taken into consideration. Should the listed event not be scored/won within the stipulated timeframe (if any), all bets will be declared void, unless otherwise stated.

Bets referring to the happening of a particular occurrence in a pre-defined time order, such as “First Card”, or “Next Team to receive penalty minutes” will be settled as void should it not be possible, without any reasonable doubt, to decide the winning outcome, for example in case of players from different teams which are shown a card in the same interruption of play.

“Team to score first and win” refer to the listed team scoring the first goal in the match and going on to win the match. Should there be no goals in the match all bets will be settled as void.

Winning Goal
Settlement of bets which make reference to terms such as “decisive goal” will be settled based on the scorer of the goal that at the end of the match/tie (as applicable) proves to be the one that has produced an unassailable lead, following which any further goals would prove to be irrelevant towards the final outcome. For a bet to be settled as “YES” the listed player’s team must be declared winner of that particular match (in case of one match) or progressing to the next round/winning the competition. Goals scored in Regular Time and Extra Time count but not Penalty Shoot outs.

Enhanced Offers / Bet of the Day
From time to time DraftKings might decide to publish offerings referring either to the single performance of a participant/team; or offerings which combine the potential outcomes of 2 or more teams/participants (ex. Enhanced multiples), at higher odds than those normally available, also known as ‘Bet of the Day’. DraftKings reserves the right to withdraw such offers, edit the respective odds and effect any further changes DraftKings might deem necessary at its sole discretion.

Settlement of these offers will be based on the following criteria:

  1. Unless specifically stated the bets refer to the next official match/event/round (as applicable) that the listed participants/teams are scheduled to take part in.
  2. All relative events must be completed within the same day/session (as applicable) as listed in conjunction with the offer. Should this not be the case, stakes placed on the offer will be fully refunded except for those offers the outcomes of which has been decided prior to the abandonment and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, which will be settled according to the decided outcome.
  3. Results for these offers will only take into account occurrences deriving from the actual play.
  4. All connotations related to the bet must be fully and unquestionably complied with for the bet to be deemed as winning, regardless of any possible conflict with the Sport-Specific rules or with any potential interpretation based on previous or current presentation of offers related to events in that particular sport and the way these are normally presented in DraftKings Sports Book. Bets will be settled as void should it still be impossible to determine a winning outcome.

While all necessary precaution has been taken by DraftKings to ensure a superior user experience, it is to be understood that markets might fluctuate in such a way that at any given point in time these do not present an enhanced value comparable to related bet offers currently present on site.

Mythical 2/3 Ball
‘Mythical 2/3 Balls’ are a type of Golf bet which allows you to bet between 2 or 3 golfers who are not in direct competition.

Correlated Parlays
For selected events, and without prejudice to Sportsbook Game Conditions, Paragraph 5, Clause 4, DraftKings will allow users to place bets combining outcomes and occurrences from the same event (aka intra-event combinations), either through pre-established combinations present in its Sportsbook or through the BetBuilder functionality. Unless otherwise stated, either in conjunction with the bet offer or in the Sport-specific rules, settlement will be based as per the rules governing the particular sport the bet refers to. All listed occurrences must be fully accomplished for the bet to be considered as winning and any ties will be considered as a LOST outcome, unless otherwise stated within the offer (Example: A bet on Team X to win and a player on Team X to score more than 2 touchdowns will be considered as LOST should the listed team win and the player score exactly 2 touchdowns). Should any part of an intra-event combination be settled as “VOID” in accordance with the respective Sport-Specific rules (Example: the intra-event combination included a bet on Player X to score but the listed player did not start the game when the Sport-Specific rules required them to), the related selections emanating from the same event will also be settled with odds 1.00. In cases of abandoned events, all pending bets will be settled as void with the exception of those the outcome of which has already been decided and no further play could produce a different outcome. 

Teaser+
“Teaser+” allows the user the possibility to allocate the same pre-set amount of points to all outcomes present in a parlay containing Spreads, Totals or a combination of both. Example: User combines NFL Team X +6.5 points in a parlay with Over 41 points in the NFL game between Team Y and Team Z. By choosing the “Teaser+ Football 6 points” option, the lines and odds get recalculated into a parlay featuring Team X +12.5 points (previously +6.5), combined with Over 35 points (previously Over 41). Should any part of a “Teaser+” bet be settled as void (push), that particular selection will be excluded from the teaser and the computation of odds/payout will be re-adjusted accordingly.

Rest of the game
Bets referring to “Rest of the game” or similar will consider only outcomes and occurrences obtained from the time of bet placement until the end of the listed timeframe, thus disregarding any occurrences registered before the time the bet was placed and accepted.

Bets on specific timeframes/intervals
Bets on specific timeframes/intervals (example: Game result between 60:00-89:59), will consider only outcomes and occurrences accumulated during the specified timeframe/interval. Settlement will not take into account any other points/goals/events tallied from other parts of the event/game outside the specified timeframe/interval, including stoppage/injury time, unless specified.

  1. General Betting Rules

Common Terms of Reference

  • Unless listed either in conjunction with the bet offer, or else in the Sport Specific rules, all bets should be considered valid for the result at the end of the “Regular Time” or “Full Time” only. “Regular Time” or “Full time” is defined as interpreted by the official rules published by the respective governing association. For example, in soccer, full time is stipulated to be 90 minutes including injury time, and in ice hockey it is stipulated as the 3 x 20 minute periods. Should the governing association decide to stipulate, before the start of the event, that the said event is to be played over a different duration, this will be treated as being the official rules for the event (for example, Under 17 football played with 2 x 40 minutes). Nonetheless, such occurrence is limited to the “regular” playing time and does not include any prolongation such as extra time or overtime, unless explicitly stated.
  • “Livebetting” is where it is possible to bet during an ongoing match or event. DraftKings does not acknowledge or accept any liability whatsoever if it not possible to place a bet or the live score update is not correct. At all times it is the Patron’s responsibility to be aware of the match and the events surrounding it such as the current score, its progression and how much time remains before the match is completed. DraftKings does not accept any liability for changes to the Livebetting schedule or interruption of the Livebetting service.
  • The “Participant” is an object constituting part of an event. In “Head-to-Head” and “Triple-Head” the Participant only refers to objects that are subject to the “Head-to-Head” or “Triple-Head” event in question.
  • The deadline (cut-off time) shown on the odds board or other similar screen is to be treated for information purposes only. DraftKings reserves the right, at its own discretion, to suspend, partially or completely, the betting activity at any time where it deems necessary.
  • Statistics or editorial text published at the DraftKings site are to be considered as added information but DraftKings does not acknowledge or accept any liability whatsoever if the information is not correct. At all times it is the Patron’s responsibility to be aware about circumstances relating to an event.
  • Theoretical return in fixed odds betting to the player is given by the odds from all possible outcomes in the offer. The theoretical payback to a player on a bet offer with 3 outcomes a, b and c can be calculated as follows.

Theoretical % = 1 / (1 / ”odds outcome a” + 1 / “odds outcome b” + 1 / “odds outcome c”) x 100

Result Settlement

1) When settling results DraftKings will do its utmost to attain itself to information obtained first hand (during or exactly after the event has been concluded), through TV transmissions, streaming (web-based and through other sources) as well as official sites. Should this information be omitted from first hand viewing and/or official sources and/or there is an obvious Error in the information included in the sources above, the settlement of the bet offer will be based on other public sources.

2) Settlement of bets will not include any changes deriving from and/or attributable to, but not limited to: disqualifications, penalizations, protests, sub judice results and/or successive changes to the official result after the event has been completed and a result has been announced, even preliminarily. For bets referring to competitions which span over more than 1 round/stage (E.g,:.Season Bets), only amendments affecting bets which settlement has not been decided yet will be taken into consideration. Such measures must be announced by the governing association before the last scheduled round/stage will be considered. Any changes effected after this date, or else referring to bets which have already been settled based on events happening during the event/competition will not be considered.

3) Occurrences which have not been sanctioned and/or acknowledged by the match/event officials (e.g. disallowed goals) will not be taken into account towards the settlement of the bet. As a general rule, and unless the offer specifies otherwise, DraftKings will settle offers based on the exact time that the flow of play was interrupted/resumed (as applicable) by the occurrence in question (e.g. ball went out of play for a throw-in/goal kick or crosses the line for a goal). Bets referring to the accumulation of a particular occurrence (e.g. Total corners) and/or the execution of a particular action, will require said occurrence to actually take place during the time interval specified (e.g. the corner being kicked). In such instances, should the occurrence be only awarded and not taken, it will not be considered for settlement purposes.

4) All bet offers related to matches/events which do not take place at all or are awarded a result through a forfeit will be declared null and void.

5) In case of an abandoned event, all bet offers that have been decided prior to the abandonment and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, will be settled according to the decided outcome. Should the abandoned event not resume within 12 hours of its start time, all pending offers related to the event will be settled as void

6) In case an event is abandoned and is scheduled to restart from the beginning, all bets placed before the initial game which could not be settled through the outcomes deriving from the play prior to abandonment, will be declared void regardless of whether or when the game is continued

7) Any event which does not start within 12 hours from the kick-off time as last issued by the governing association will be declared void. This includes cases like games which are postponed due to bad weather, crowd trouble or similar scenarios. Exception to this are cases of events whose starting times had not been officially defined yet by the governing association at time of bet placement, or those which are moved due to scheduling conflicts/tv broadcasts but are to be played within the same gameday (where applicable). In such cases bets will remain valid granted that the listed event is the next official commitment from that particular tournament/league/competition scheduled for all participants in the offer.

8) In cases of events which have not been completed before their natural conclusion, and a result is issued through a decision by the association not more than 12 hours from the event’s start, DraftKings will use the issued decision as the official result for offers related to the event’s outcome, such as Game, Draw No Bet and Double Chance granted that the issued decision does not change the outcome of the said bet offers at the time of the abandonment. In that case the stakes will be refunded. All offers referring to the tallying of particular occurrences (example: Total Goals, Handicaps, etc) will be declared void except for those the outcomes of which have been decided prior to the abandonment and could not possibly be changed regardless of future events, which will be settled according to the decided outcome.

9) All bet offers related to incomplete matches/events where the official governing body is not previously acknowledged (e.g. Club Friendlies) will be declared as void unless at least 90% of the stipulated Regular/Full time is played. Should the match/event be abandoned after 90% has been completed, the settlement will be based on the current score at the time when the match/event was stopped.

10) Settlement of bet offers, such as, but not limited to, shots, shots on target, ball possession, assists, rebounds, etc. will be based according to the definition with which the official governing body issues said statistics. Unless backed by un-contradictory evidence, DraftKings will not acknowledge any complaints which derive from a personal interpretation of such terms.

11) When placing “Outright/Futures” or “Place” bets, no stakes/wagers will be refunded on participants/outcomes that are not participating or withdrawing from an event (both prior and during), unless otherwise stated. DraftKings reserves the right, at its own discretion, to apply Tattersalls Rule 4, as explained below on any competition and this will be stated in correlation to the bet offer and/or the relevant Sport-specific rule.

12) No refunds of bets will apply, even if the winning outcome of a match/event is a participant/outcome that has not been listed for betting purposes. On all bet offers the patron has the possibility to ask for a price on a non-listed participant/outcome. DraftKings reserves the right, at its own discretion, to decline such requests.

13) In case a participant is disqualified/withheld/banned from taking part in a subsequent part/phase of an event/competition, the disqualification will be considered to have taken place at the time of the participant’s removal from the event. No alterations will be made to previous results, regardless of any modifications due to said actions.

14) If two or more Participants share the applicable finishing positions and no odds have been offered for a drawn outcome, the payout will be calculated via a “Dead Heat Reduction” as detailed below.

15) In “Group Betting” (aka “Best of X”), all listed participants must start the event for bets to stand.

16) In “Group Betting” (aka “Best of X”), at least one participant from the selection list must successfully complete the event for bets to stand. Should that not be the case, and the governing association does not follow specific tie-breaking criteria, the bets will be declared void.

17) In a “Head to Head” between two or three participants, all listed participants must start the particular round/event which the bet refers to, for bets to be considered valid.

18) In a “Head to Head” between two participants, all bets will be refunded if both participants share the same position/score or are eliminated at the same stage of the competition, unless the governing association follows specific tie-breaking procedures, in which case, these will be deemed valid.

19) In a “Head to Head” between three participants and more than one winning outcome, the odds will be divided by the outcomes sharing the winning position, irrespective whether the net outcome is lower than the Patron’s stake.

20) If a “Head to Head” is offered between different rounds/stages, all participants must take part in the upcoming round/stage for bets to be valid.

21) Unless specifically stated, whenever the organizing association deems it fit to include any necessary rounds, matches, or series of matches (e.g. Play-offs, Play-outs, Postseason) following the end of the so-called Regular Season in order to determine the classification, league winners, promotion/relegation, etc., DraftKings will take into account the results and outcomes deriving from these matches for settlement purposes of bets referring to the final league classification, promotion, relegation, etc. For example, seasonal bets on the team winning the NHL will refer to the Stanley Cup Winners.

22) Offers which confront against each other the performances of two or more individuals/teams over a stipulated timeframe/competition will only be settled based on the result of the listed participants, disregarding all other participants in the same competition/event.

23) Unless specifically stated, all offers referring to a single player’s performance in a specific domestic league (such as Total Goals Scored by Player X in League Y) or “Head to Head” bet offers involving two players’ performances in domestic leagues, will not take into account those events happening during eventual Play-offs/Play-outs/Post-season or any other matches, or series of, which would happen after the so-called Regular Season.

24) Offers related to a total amount of occurrences/events scored/tallied by a particular team, either in a single team performance in a specific domestic league (such as Total Goals Scored by Team X), or “Head to Head” bet offers involving two teams’ performances in domestic leagues (E.g. Most Penalty Minutes in League X – Team Y vs Team Z), or a cumulative league performance (E.g. Team to receive Most Yellow Cards in League X) will not take into account those events happening during eventual Play-offs/Play-outs/Post-season or any other matches, or series of, which would happen after the so-called Regular Season, unless otherwise specified.

25) In a single player performance bet offer in a specific domestic league (such as Total Goals Scored by Player X in League Y) or “Head to Head” bet offers involving two players’ performances in domestic leagues, should any of the following occurrences happen to either of the participants in the selection list, the bets will be considered void: (i) does not take part in at least 50% of the stipulated matches (excluding eventual Play-offs/Play-outs/Post-season); (ii) does not take part in at least another match after the bet has been placed, (iii) totals the same amount as the other player.

26) In a single player performance bet offer in a specific event (such as Total Goals Scored by Player X in International Tournament) or “Head to Head” bet offers involving two players’ performances in specific events, should any of the following occurrences happen to either of the participants in the selection list, the bets will be considered void: (i) does not take part at all in the event (ii) does not take part in at least another match after the bet has been placed, (iii) totals the same amount as the other participant.

27) During specific events DraftKings might decide to offer for betting a reduced selection of participants and might also include betting options such as “any other”, “the field”, or similar. This option includes all unlisted participants except for the ones mentioned specifically as available.

28) Offers that make specific reference to a participant’s/participants’ performance in a particular event (e.g. Player X vs The Field) are to be considered void if the mentioned participant(s) do(es) not take part in the competition.

29) Any form of a qualification ahead of the main event is considered to be a valid part of that competition. Thus any participant who is eliminated at qualification stage will be considered losing to anyone that is pre-qualified or is successful in the qualification part.

30) Bet offers which originally require participant(s) to compete in two or more stages/legs to advance into a subsequent phase/round of a competition, will remain valid regardless of any postponement/movement of the actual match dates, given that said match(es) actually takes place within the frame of the competition.

31) A bet on a “To Qualify” market/bet offer originally requiring just one stage/leg to advance to a subsequent phase/round of a competition (including any eventual prolongations/additional matches, e.g. replays) will be declared null and void if said match is not decided within more than 36 hours of its supposed start time.

32) Changes in venue or playing surface will not be a reason to void bets unless the Sport-specific rules dictate, and/or the new field results in a change to either participant playing at its habitual “home”. Bets on games played at “Neutral Venues” will remain valid regardless of whether such information has been detailed in the bet offer and/or the order the teams are named on the betting display. If there is a discrepancy between which team is listed as the Home/Away team on the league official website and the betting display, and such discrepancy causes a significant effect on the odds of the game, DraftKings will void the affected bets. Such eventuality is contemplated only in cases where the discrepancy has a material and visible effect on the odds. For example, in cases of swapped Home and Away teams in an Ice Hockey game DraftKings will void the bets. Nevertheless DraftKings will consider valid bets placed on events where the so-called home-field advantage is not considered and in cases of Neutral Venues. Examples of such cases include but are not limited to tennis tournaments, MMA fights, singles competitions in general, or specific events such as the final/late stages of team competitions being held in pre-established venues, like the Superbowl, the NCAA Final 4 or the Italian Football Cup Final even if the location can be deemed as a potential customary “home” field for either of the teams involved. In such cases, said events will be considered as being played in Neutral Venues and all bets stand regardless of the positioning of the participants on the official website and their placement on the betting display.

33) Information referring to gender of the teams, age groups and youth teams, as well as various definitions of reserve teams (e.g. B and C teams), is to be treated as supplementary information. The inclusion (or lack of) and correctness of such information will not be treated as sufficient cause for the voiding of the offers related to the match/event, given that this does not cause an obvious inconsistency in odds offered.

34) While all necessary precautions are taken by DraftKings to assure the most faithful rendition of all components involved in a bet offer, it is to be assumed that certain denominations could be represented differently due to different interpretations deriving from adaptations into another language. Such linguistic incongruence will not be treated as sufficient cause for the voiding of the offers related to the match/event, given that it does not create uncertainty with other participants. The same applies for denominations referring to events, team names, sponsor names, etc.

35) In case of bets where there is reference to timeframes, they should be interpreted in the following way: “within the first 30 minutes” will include anything happening until 0 hours 29 minutes and 59 seconds; “between 10 to 20 minutes” will include anything happening from 10 minutes and 0 seconds until 19 minutes and 59 seconds.

36) Unless listed either in conjunction with the bet offer, or else in the Sport Specific rules, bets referring to event/match duration which include non-full integer digits (E.g. 88.5 minutes or X.5 rounds) require the full completion of the full integer of the listed duration for them to be considered won. For example: a bet on Over/Under 88.5 minutes in a Tennis match will be settled as Over only if at least 89 full minutes are completed.

37) DraftKings acknowledges that some bets might require the rounding-up of percentages, units or other criteria which are decisive for the settlement of the bet. Should that be the case, DraftKings reserves the right to adjust and settle accordingly.

38) Any reference to goals scored by specific players will not count if they are defined as ‘own goals’ (scored in their own goals) unless otherwise stated.

39) Any reference to confederation, nationality or similar will be subject to the definition by the governing association.

40) Any medals won by a team/nation per competition will count as one (1) single medal regardless of the number of team members.

41) Offers related to a total amount of occurrences/events scored/tallied by a particular player, in a single team performance in a specific competition (such as Total Goals Scored by Player X for Team Y) will only take into account total amount of occurrences/events scored/tallied by the particular player while playing for that team in that particular competition. Should any of the following occurrences happen to the listed player, the bets will be considered void: (i) does not take part in at least 50% of the competition’s stipulated matches (excluding eventual Play-offs/Play-outs/Post-season); (ii) does not take part in at least another match after the bet has been placed.

 42) Offers related to Fantasy Points or Fantasy Contests will consider DraftKings official Fantasy Scoring as stipulated in the Daily Fantasy Rules and Scoring. For any offers pertaining to Fantasy Points, the ‘Classic’ scoring system will be used, unless otherwise stated in the bet offer.

Australian Rules Football

1) Unless explicitly stated, should a match or else a specified period (ex. 1st Half, 3rd Quarter, etc.) end in a draw, all bets will be settled according to the so-called “dead-heat” rule.

Cricket

  1. General Cricket Rules

1) In cases where no odds have been offered for a tie and the match/offer ends in a tie, bets would be settled according to the so-called “dead-heat” rule where the payout would be calculated after the odds are divided and multiplied by the stake, irrespective whether the net payout is lower than the Patron’s stake. Should such provision be in place it would be listed in conjunction with the bet offer. In competitions where other means are used to determine a winner after a tie (‘Bowl out’ or ‘Super over’) then offers will be settled based on the result after such prolongations are completed.

2) “Highest Opening Partnership” requires that both sides complete their opening partnerships with the exception of those situations where an outcome has already been determined.

3) “Batting” Head to Heads require that both players be at the batting crease while a ball is bowled, though not necessarily facing a ball. In case either batsman’s innings are not completed bets will be voided with the exception of those situations where an outcome has already been determined.

4) “Bowling” Head to Heads require that both players bowl at least 1 ball for bets to stand.

5) Total “Batsman Runs” (Over/Under) require the innings to be completed. In cases where a batsman’s innings is ended by weather or bad light, all bets where a result has not been determined will be declared void. A result is deemed to have been determined if a Batsman has passed the Run total at which the bet was accepted, has been dismissed or an innings is declared. For example, if a Batsman’s score stands at 50 ‘Not-Out’ when a game or innings is terminated due to bad light or rain, all bets on 50.5 Runs will be voided. However, all bets on “Over 49.5 Runs” will be considered as winning while bets on “Under 49.5 Runs” will be settled as losing. Should a batsman retire due to injury, his score at the end of his team’s innings will be considered as the result for that bet.

6) In “Fall Of Next Wicket” betting should either batsman retire due to injury before a result has been determined all bets will be declared void. A result is deemed to have been determined if the Innings total has passed the Run total at which the bet was accepted. If a team declares or reaches their target, the total achieved by the batting team will be the result of the market. If a partnership is disrupted due to weather all bets will stand, unless there is no further play in the match. In such case all bets where a result has not been determined will be declared void.

7) For “Next Over” betting (Over/Under & Odd/Even), extras are included for settlement purposes. Bets will be void if the Over is not completed unless a result has already been determined. Market refers only to the listed Over (e.g. “5th Over” refers to Over number 5, i.e. the Over directly following Over Number 4).

8) In “Race to X Runs” both players must open the batting for bets to stand.

9) For “First Over” Runs the Over must be completed for bets to stand, unless the maximum range offered has already been achieved. Any Extras count for settlement purposes.

10) For “First Scoring Play” betting, should Runs be scored from a “No ball”, extras will be deemed as the winner.

11) In “Wicket 1st Over” betting the Over must be completed for bets to stand, unless a wicket has already fallen.

12) In “Next Man Out” betting bets will be settled as void if either player retires due to injury before the wicket falls or there is no further wickets. Both named Batsmen must be batting at the fall of the nominated wicket for bets to stand.

13) For “Method of Dismissal” betting bets will be void if either player retires due to injury before the wicket falls or there is no further wickets. ‘Any Other’ includes hit wicket, handled ball, obstructing the field, timed out or hit the ball twice.

14) For Odd/Even betting a ball must be bowled for bets to stand.

15) “Top Batsman” and “Top Bowler” bets placed on any player not in the starting 11 will be declared void. Bets on players who are selected but do not bat or field will be settled as losers.

16) Settlement of betting on “Wides” will be based on the “Runs” scored from “Wides” and not the number of “Wides” bowled.

  1. Limited Overs (including One-Day Internationals, Twenty20s & Domestic One-Day cricket)

1) Should a match be transferred to a ‘reserve’ day, all bets will remain valid.

6) All disciplinary-related bets referring to individual(s) (e.g. yellow card, red card, number of fouls), will require the listed player(s) to play from the start of the match to be valid.

7) “Booking Points” are calculated according to the following rules: Yellow card = 10 points, Red card = 25 points. Maximum points for one player are 35.

8) “Head to Head” and “Over/Under” bets involving the performance of one or more players in the match are considered valid given that all listed players start the match for bets to stand.

9) “Head to Head” and “Over/Under” bets involving the performance of one or more players in the event/tournament are considered valid given that all listed players take part in the event/tournament at some stage for bets to stand.

10) All bets referring to aggregated Tournament Totals (such as Goals, Corners, Cards, Penalties, etc.) will be settled based on official statistics by the governing association. Unless otherwise stated, cumulative amounts of such bets will include eventual prolongations (e.g. Extra Time) but not Penalty Shoot Outs.

11) Unless specifically stated, all bets referring to a particular team winning a number/selection of trophies in the same season will be based on the particular team’s performance within the following competitions: the domestic league, the apparent equivalent of the respective FA Cup and League Cup as well as the Champions League or Europa League. Other trophies (e.g. domestic and European Super Cup, World Club Cup) do not count.

12) The “Domestic Double” is to be considered as the team’s victory in the apparent equivalent of the respective domestic league and FA Cup.

13) Bets on whether a particular player(s) will manage to score from certain areas of the pitch (E.g. from outside the ‘penalty box’) will be settled based on the position of the ball at the time the shot was struck by the player, irrelevant of any further deflections which the ball trajectory might incur following the initial shot. For the sake of clarity it is to be understood that the lines delineating the ‘penalty box’ are to be considered as an integral part of such area of the pitch. Thus, should a shot be struck with the ball hovering above, or touching, even partially, said lines, the shot will not be considered as having been effected from outside the box.

14) Bets on whether a particular player(s) will manage to hit the cross bar, goal post or any other part of the frame delineating the goal area will only be settled as having accomplished such feat if the shot does not result directly in a goal being awarded exactly after the ball hits a part of the goal frame.

15) During certain events DraftKings might decide to offer for betting a reduced selection of participants (E.g. Any unlisted Team X player) or else a single participant as a representation of the whole squad (E.g. “Any Team X player”). In both cases for settlement purposes, all unlisted squad members are to be deemed as starters (and settled as such), including substitutes regardless whether they take part in the match or not.

16) Bets on the performance of players starting the match on the bench will be settled as void if the player is either listed in the starting 11 or does not take part in the match at all.

17) On offers such as Next Goalscorer, Next Carded player, Next Assist and Man of the Match, stakes will be refunded should the chosen player not take part in the match at all. Results for this offer will include any outcomes obtained during eventual Extra Time but not during Penalty Shoot-outs.

18) Bets on “Next Assist” for a particular goal will be settled as void should the governing association declare the specified goal as having been unassisted, the specified goal is an own goal and/or no more goals are scored in the match. Results for this offer will include any goals scored during eventual Extra Time but not during Penalty Shoot-outs.

19) Bets referring to penalty kicks conversion and/or outcome will be settled according to the outcome occurred on the field of play as per the rules governing that specific scenario and in cases of penalty shoot-outs will remain valid regardless of the format employed by the governing association during the shoot-out. Bets stand in case the penalty is ordered to be re-taken and will be settled with the outcome achieved from the re-taken penalty.

As a general principle, settlement will be based on the concept that unless the penalty kick results in a goal being awarded (and settled accordingly), the first person/object/location (as applicable) which the ball initially touches after being kicked will be considered as the winning outcome, disregarding any other persons/objects the ball hits in its subsequent trajectory following any previous deflection, if any. The following examples are being issued as a general guideline on settlement:

“Goal” would be the winning outcome in case of the following scored penalties scenarios:

  • Any penalty kick which ends up as a goal without it being deflected;
  • Goalkeeper touches the penalty kick but ball ends up as goal;
  • Penalty kick touches the woodwork before ending up in goal.

“Save” would be the winning outcome in case of the following missed penalties scenarios:

  • Goalkeeper deflects the penalty kick to outside the goal frame;
  • Goalkeeper deflects the penalty kick onto the post/crossbar.

“Woodwork” would be the winning outcome in case of the following missed penalties scenarios:

  • Penalty kick hits the woodwork before it is touched/saved by the goalkeeper;
  • Penalty kick hits the woodwork and ball goes outside the goal frame.

20) Any decision taken by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) which conflicts with the original decision sanctioned by the officials on the pitch (including non-decisions like allowing play to continue before reviewing the video), thus altering the understood state of the match at the time of bet placement, will result in all bets placed in the timeframe between the actual occurrence of the original incident and the referee’s final decision on the incident being deemed as void, unless the odds offered on the specific bet offer are unaffected by the use of VAR or have already been accounted for in the odds offered at the time of bet acceptance. Settlement on all other unrelated bet-offers, including those determined by any play between the time of the original incident and the decision following the VAR review, which are not influenced/altered by the VAR decision will stand.

For resulting purposes VAR reviews are to be considered as having happened at the time of the original incident for which the VAR would be eventually used even if play has not been immediately interrupted. DraftKings reserves the right, in accordance with <Section A, Para 6.2>, to reverse any previously settled offers where the settlement becomes inaccurate following the final referee decision, providing said decision is taken and communicated before the conclusion of the match and/or timeframe listed.

In order to avoid any doubts, DraftKings will consider the VAR as having been used if it is understood from the referee’s gestures (ex.hand gestures, stopping the match to review the incident themselves), and/or the VAR usage is confirmed by the match report issued by the official organization. In cases where it is unclear whether the VAR has been used due to missing TV coverage and/or conflicting reports, DraftKings will settle the bets based on the information acquired from feed providers and generally reputable online sources on the basis of equity.

22) Any reference to “Free Kicks” both when presented as a single outcome, as well as an occurrence will also take into consideration instances awarded for offsides and any other violation except those sanctioned with a penalty.

23) Mythical Matches refer to imaginary games pairing two teams in a round of fixtures (ie a matchweek) for betting purposes only. The team scoring the most goals in their actual match is deemed the winner. Bets will be settled as a draw if both teams score the same number of goals. Where a match involving one of the teams is postponed or abandoned, bets will be null and void.

24) Asian Handicaps settle as such:
