APPENDIX A: SPORTS BETTING SPECIAL TERMS
Capitalised terms not defined in these Special Terms shall have the same meaning as defined in the Terms.
1. RULES OF BETS
1.1 Placing a Bet
1.1.1 All bets placed are between two parties: NetBet and the Player. Each bet is considered valid as soon as the Player confirms their bet on the Websites and as soon as the confirmed stake appears in the Player's Account. Once the bet is confirmed, the Player cannot cancel or change it.
1.1.2 NetBet reserves the right to refuse to accept bets without giving notice, justification or compensation.
1.1.3 NetBet will not be responsible for clerical errors of typing, transmission or odds.
1.1.4 NetBet reserves the right to correct later or void any bets, where there are obvious errors regarding odds or results or if there are unforeseen events or changes in events.
1.1.5 The Player agrees, when placing a bet that:
184.108.40.206 The bet is not affected by an event in which the Player is actively involved in any capacity whatsoever. In such cases, NetBet reserves the right to void the bet(s) concerned.
220.127.116.11 In cases where information on the likely outcome of a competition might be announced during the period that the bet is being confirmed, NetBet have the right to cancel the bet concerned. For individual bets, this means that NetBet will refund the stake to the Player's Account. For multiple bets, the bets will not be cancelled, but the odds will be calculated without taking into Account the odds of the bet which was declared void. The odds will be set at 1.00.
18.104.22.168 NetBet has the right to void a bet which is made on an event in which the results had been fixed or predetermined.
22.214.171.124 NetBet indicates the time and the time limit after which it is no longer possible to place a bet, regardless of the real start time of the event. NetBet enforces the rule that the winner of a specific competition is the person or team declared the winner at midnight on the day that the event ends. Any change of results or classification arising after this time limit, for example due to a disciplinary measure, has no impact on the outcome of the competition stated earlier.
126.96.36.199 With the exception of bets placed on cricket, tennis and baseball matches, if an event (game or competition) is cancelled, postponed or pushed back to a later date, all bets already placed are still valid if the event takes place within 48 hours of its original commencement time. Otherwise, bets will be considered void. However, bets connected to results that have already been announced at the time of the suspension (for example: the result at half time) will be paid as usual.
188.8.131.52 For all cancelled or postponed baseball games, all bets that have already been placed, remain valid if the event takes place within 12 hours of the original scheduled start time; all other bets will be cancelled.
184.108.40.206 If competitions are presented incorrectly (for example: confusion between the home team/away team or an opponent who is not playing against the team shown), the relevant bets will be void.
220.127.116.11 If at least two competitors are declared winners (tie), the odds will be recalculated so that the Player's winnings are divided by the number of tied winners. For example: In a Formula 1 race scenario in which Lewis Hamilton has odds of 6.00 to win and Fernando Alonso has odds of 3.00 to win. If the two cars cross the finish line at exactly the same time, both are winners. If the Player bets €/$/£5 on a Hamilton victory, the winnings will be calculated as follows: 5 x (((6-1) / 2) + 1) = €/$/£17.50 winnings. If the Player bets €/$/£10 on an Alonso victory, their winnings will be calculated as follows: 10 x (((3-1) / 2) + 1) = €/$/£20 winnings.
18.104.22.168 If there are any mistakes/discrepancies with names and numbers of a competitor, NetBet will take the name of the competitor accounted for, for results of bets.
22.214.171.124 For bets placed on a tennis match, if a participant in the match abandons the match, the bet will be void and will be refunded. If it is a system or combination bet, the odds are reset to 1.
126.96.36.199 NetBet's recordings are definitive proof of the validity and limits of all the bets that Players place and the circumstances in which they were made.
1.1.6 Although every effort is made to ensure that information displayed on the Websites with regards to an event is correct, it is to be used as a guide only. In the event of any particular information (score, time of game etc.) being incorrect we assume no liability for this.
1.2 Winnings from Sports Bets:
1.2.1 Winnings will be automatically paid into the Player's Account as soon as possible after the event is completed and they can be used immediately to place other bets. Bets on Outright/Winner markets will only be settled and paid after all games are played and the league/event is over.
1.2.2 NetBet reserves the right to correct any potential calculation errors in the Player's Account balance at any time, including in respect of bets where winnings have been awarded. NetBet will contact the Player with details of corrections made.
1.2.3 Maximum winnings from sports betting are exclusive of stake and, unless expressly permitted by the terms of any promotion, are as follows:
188.8.131.52 In a 24 hour period - €/$/£20,000.
184.108.40.206 In one week (Monday at 00:01 until the following Sunday at midnight (CET)) - €/$/£50,000.
1.2.4 Maximum winning limits apply to any one customer, or group of customers acting together, who have placed bets containing the same selections, including where placed in a series of bets.
1.2.5 A bet will not be taken, if a maximum winning could be reached with it, which guarantees the fairness of NetBet.
1.2.6 The minimum stake for pre-live bets is €/$/£0.07 (or currency equivalent) and €/$/£0.13 for live bets (or currency equivalent).
1.2.7 There is no maximum limit set for bets, however NetBet reserves the right to limit the maximum stake for some bets, without disclosing it on the Websites. If a Player places a bet with a stake that exceeds the limit set by NetBet, the system will accept the bet only up to the limit of the maximum limit and inform the Player.
1.2.8 If the Player has placed several identical bets (single bets or combination bets, single or multiple) and the winnings exceed NetBet's limits, NetBet reserves the right to reduce the stakes that the Player has placed on these bets so that the winnings are within NetBet's limits.
1.2.9 You understand and agree that you will only be entitled to withdraw the winnings generated from Free Bets after you have completed the Playthrough for all bonuses received.
1.2.10 You can only withdraw amounts you have won excluding your Free Bet, which cannot be withdrawn.

The requirement will vary based on each single promotion. More information can be found in the Bonus section of our website.
1.3.3 Some promotions are restricted to customers who have received an email, SMS or push notification inviting them to participate. Those players that have not been contacted will not be eligible to take part.

2.2 To place a bet, the Player must have sufficient funds in the Player's Account.
2.3 Only bets placed from the Player's Account will be accepted and all the winnings that the Player has obtained from the Services will be credited to the Player's Account. Subject to this, the Player can make deposits or withdrawals on the page "My Account".
2.4 NetBet reserves the right to cancel or limit any bet, at the sole discretion of NetBet, for any reason whatsoever. If a bet is considered or declared to be invalid by NetBet, the amounts deducted from the Player's Account for this bet will be credited to the Player's Account.
