  1. Golf

Where a tournament which is scheduled for 72 holes is abandoned for any reason, all bets on the outcome of the tournament shall be void.

Where a tournament is suspended for any reason and no official result is declared in circumstances where the balance of the tournament is intended to be rescheduled, all outstanding bets will stand until a result is declared by the relevant controlling authority. If a result is not declared within 7 days of the original scheduled completion date, all outstanding bets thereon shall be void.

Where a tournament is reduced from the scheduled number of holes for any reason (e.g. adverse weather conditions) outright bets placed prior to the final completed round will be settled on the player awarded the trophy if 36 holes of the tournament have been completed. If less than 36 holes have been completed or outright bets were placed after the final completed round then bets will be void.

All outright bets are settled on the player who wins the trophy and any playoff holes will be taken into account when determining the winner of a tournament.

In the case of place bets where there is a tie after completion of the scheduled number of holes (subject to the rules outlined above), the revised payout payable shall be calculated by the following method:

  • Divide the face value of the bet (the original payout and the original stake) by the number of players involved in the tie, draw or dead heat.
  • Then multiply the figure obtained by the calculation detailed above by the number of official placings to be filled by the players involved in the tie, draw or dead heat.

 

Bets shall be void on any player who fails to tee off in the first round. Players who withdraw after tee off shall be deemed a loser of the tournament.

 

A player who tees off is deemed “under orders” and all outright and match bets stand.

The following applies to “make the cut” betting:

  • For a bet to stand the player must play 36 holes (or 54 holes where the cut is made at that point).
  • A player is deemed to have made the cut if a player is eligible to play in the round after the cut has been made (even if he chooses not to). If a player is not eligible to do so (even if the rules for the cut have been changed during the tournament), that player is deemed to have missed the cut.

The following applies to tournament group betting:

  • Bets on any player in a specified group who fails to start the tournament shall be void and deduction rules (refer deduction table in 3.1.1 in Horse Racing Rules) shall apply in respect of the remaining players in that group.

  • If either player fails to take part in the tournament, or if the specific round is abandoned, then bets on that match shall be void.
  • The winner in a match bet is the player to complete the most holes with the lowest score. If one player misses the cut his opponent is deemed the winner.
  • Play off holes do not count unless the bet was made specifically to exclude the tie.

The following applies to two, three and four ball matches:

  • All bets are settled on the lowest single round score over the specified 18 holes played and all 18 holes must be completed.
  • In Modified Stableford competitions the winner shall be the player who accumulates the most points, for the highest overall score.
  • If a player starts a round but fails to complete it, all bets on that player will be deemed losers regardless of score.
  • All bets shall be void if the specified round is abandoned or if any one of the players fails to start the round.
  • Dead heat rules applicable to horse racing shall apply for three and four balls if more than one player achieves the lowest score, unless a tie is quoted.
  • A tie will be quoted for two ball betting and where a tie occurs all bets on players are losers unless it clearly states that betting is quoted with no tie.
  • In the event of a player listed in a three or four ball withdrawing before the event has started, all bets on that specific three or four ball shall be void.
  • If a player withdraws for any reason or is disqualified during the tournament after he has teed off, all bets will stand on that three or four ball.
  • If two or three players are tied on the same score they will be settled as a dead heat for betting purposes, unless they are involved in a playoff where the winner of the three or four ball is the golfer with the lowest finishing score. If all three or four golfers miss the cut, the player with the lowest score will be deemed the winner.
  1. Greyhounds

UK and Ireland Greyhounds
Antepost wagers are accepted on the basis all-in run or not, entered or not. Where Each-Way Antepost bets are placed on a Greyhound which is subsequently declared a non-runner for a final (having qualified for it), resulting in the original place terms offered being greater than the number of runners in the final, then the selection will be settled as placed (with Dead Heat rules applying where necessary). This does not apply to Greyhounds that are disqualified at the Semi-Final stage, or in finals where a reserve replaces the absent Greyhound.

To Qualify for the Final – Once a Greyhound has qualified for a specified final, bets will be settled as a winner (even if they are subsequently declared a non-runner for that final). This does not apply to Greyhounds that are disqualified at the Semi-Final stage.

Payment will be made on the official result of races. Bets will be void in the event of no Starting Price being returned. Hollywoodbets reserves the right to declare void any bets where it considers there to be reasonable suspicion or evidence of unfair price manipulation.

When a race is re-run all bets stand. However, where a price has been taken, settlement will be at the Starting Price returned on the re-run. Should a race be declared void and not re-run then all selections will be treated as non-runners.

In the event of abandonment or postponement to races where early prices have been offered, all bets will stand as long as the races are rescheduled and completed. However, bets where a price has been taken will be settled at the Starting Price, should a non-runner, in the specified race, be declared.
