Bet Settlement:

For the purposes of these rules, Half Time is defined as the scheduled first 45 minutes of the 1st Half plus any added injury time/stoppage time. Normal Time and 90 Minutes Play is defined as the scheduled 90 minutes of play of the 1st and 2nd Half plus any added injury time/stoppage time. Extra Time is defined as any scheduled periods of play after Normal Time and 90 Minutes Play, plus any added injury time or stoppage time, golden/silver goals and/or Penalty Shootouts.

All bets on football matches are based on the score at the end of a scheduled 90 Minutes Play, unless otherwise stated or unless the bet has already been settled.

If a match gets divided into thirds of 3 intervals of 30 minutes, all full time bets will stand as they will be considered to have played within normal time.  All half based bets that reference 1st half, 45 minutes, 2nd half, halftime fulltime, 1st half goals, or any other market that relies on a half time outcome will be void and refunded as there is no half as the match is played in thirds.

PLAYA is not responsible for any errors or amendments to any match details displayed.

In the event of a match being played on a neutral ground the team displayed to the left will be considered as the home team and the team shown on the right will be considered as the away team.

If the match is abandoned before the end of Normal Time, all bets other than those for Corners in 1st Half will be void.

Outright Divisional Betting:

In divisional betting, the finishing positions of the teams at the end of the scheduled program of matches will determine the placings with no allowance for play-offs or subsequent enquiries resulting in points deductions by the respective leagues.

If any team has points deducted during the season from its total attained on the field of play, the deduction will be included in its final total. However, if any deduction is made after all the games in that division have been completed, it will have no effect on the final total.

Outright Divisional Handicap Betting:

Winning bets must predict the team winning the division based on the application of the handicap.

At least one team in each division will start from scratch and all other teams in the division will be awarded a set number of points (or handicap start). Final placings will be determined by adding the points awarded to each team to the total number of points accumulated over the season. Bets must be placed prior to the start of the season and Dead Heat rules apply to team’s level on points. Goal difference does not count.

End of Season Specials:

The end of the season is defined as the time when the League programme has been completed.
