  9. All rules, regulations and payoffs contained herein are subject to changes and revisions by Pinnacle Sports without prior written notice.

  12. In the event funds are credited to a customer's account in error, it is incumbent upon the customer to notify Pinnacle Sports of aforesaid error without delay. For accounts with minus balances, Pinnacle Sports reserves the right to cancel any pending plays, whether placed with funds resulting from the error or not.

  13. Members are solely responsible for their own account transactions. Please be sure to review your wagers for any mistakes before sending them in. Once a transaction is complete, it cannot be changed. Pinnacle Sports does not take responsibility for missing or duplicate wagers made by the client and will not entertain discrepancy requests because a play is missing or duplicated. Clients may review their transactions in the Review Account section of the site after each session to ensure all requested wagers were accepted. CHECK ALL TRANSACTIONS CAREFULLY!

  14. All results posted shall be final after 72 hours and no queries will be entertained after that period of time. Within 72 hours after results are posted, the company will only reset/correct the results due to human error, system error or mistakes made by the referring results source.

  15. Each client is wholly responsible for maintaining the secrecy of his betting account and should make every effort to prevent the use of his personal account number by any third party. Any transactions entered into where the account holder's number has been given to effect a wager shall stand as bona fide transactions dependent only upon the current balance in the account.

  16. In the event a customer suspects a third party may have their client number and password, the customer may at any time ask that Pinnacle Sports furnish the customer with a new client number and password.

  17. Pinnacle Sports shall not be responsible for any damages or losses deemed or alleged to have resulted from or been caused by this Web site or its content. This includes any person's use or misuse of its content, the inability of any person to connect with or use the site, delay in operations or transmission, failure of communication lines, or any errors or omissions in content.

  18. All account balances and transactions appear in the currency selected when the account was originally opened.

  19. In those types of games or contests in which a draw is possible in the event, Pinnacle Sports may offer a so called three-way line with the draw as the third betting option.

  20. Pinnacle Sports reserves the right to suspend a client account without prior notice and return all funds.

  21. You will not cause any transactions to be made at Pinnacle Sports that are not in good faith in an attempt to defraud the company, regardless of whether or not it actually causes us harm. If Pinnacle Sports, in its sole discretion, believes that any player, affiliate or marketing partner has intentionally acted in bad faith or has engaged in fraudulent activity, Pinnacle Sports reserves the right to take any and all steps it deems appropriate.

  22. Pinnacle Sports identifies and communicates with our clients via the email address registered in the account.

  24. Pinnacle Sports attempts to follow the normal conventions to indicate home and away teams by indicating the home and away team by means of vertical placement on the desk top site version. This means in American Sports we would place the home team on the bottom. For Non-US sports, we would indicate the home team on top. In the case of a neutral venue, we attempt to include the letter "N" next to the team names to indicate this.

    For the Asian and mobile versions, we do not distinguish between European and American Sports. On the Asian and mobile versions of the site, the home team is always listed first.

    However, we do not guarantee the accuracy of this information and unless there is an official venue change subsequent to bets being placed, all wagers have action.

  25. A game/match will have action regardless of the League heading that is associated with the matchup. For example, two teams from the same League are playing in a Cup competition. If the matchup is mistakenly placed in the League offering, the game/match will still have action, as long as the matchup is correct. In other words, a matchup will have action as long as the two teams are correct, and regardless of the League header in which it is placed on our website.

  26. If a sport-specific rule contradicts a general rule, then the general rule will not apply.

  27. If an event is not played on the same date as announced by the governing body, then all wagers on the event have no action (for additional information please see general rule 26).

    If an event is posted by Pinnacle Sports with an incorrect date, all wagers have action based on the date announced by the governing body.

  28. Pinnacle Sports reserves the right to refuse, restrict, cancel or limit any bet perceived to be placed in a fraudulent manner in order to circumvent our bet limits, rules and/or system regulations.

  29. The customer's personal information will be protected and processed in strict compliance with our Privacy Policy. For your reference a link to the Privacy Policy is provided at the bottom of this page.

ATHLETICS


Athletics:

  1. Participants awarded gold, silver and bronze medals at the medal ceremony will be deemed 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively for betting purposes.

  2. Pinnacle settles bets based on the classification that is published immediately after the race. Pinnacle does not recognize results overturned later via protests, doping tests, or other means.

Head to Head Best Finishing Position Propositions:

  1. Wagers will have action as long as both participants compete (have a valid start) in any heat or final. However, if we post a contest subsequent to preliminary heat(s), and one of the listed participants (who qualified for next round) does not compete in any future heat or final, all wagers made after the last completed heat (for the two participants) in that event for that contest will have no action.

  2. If a matchup against "The Field" is offered, the listed competitor must beat every other athlete for a bet on that competitor to win. If any athlete beats all the competitors, bets on "The Field" will be graded as winners. If the competitor ties for 1st place, wagers on the matchups will be refunded.

Best Finishing Position will be determined by the following: 

The competitor who advances to the latest round of the competition will be declared the winner.

  1. For example, if Contestant A reaches the Semi-Final Heat, and Contestant B is eliminated in the Quarter-Final Heat (does not reach Semi-Final Heat), then Contestant A will be graded as the winner.

  2. If both contestants are knocked out in the same preliminary round, but compete in the same exact race, starting at the same time, then the better finisher in that race will be declared the winner.

  3. If both contestants are knocked out in the same preliminary round, but race in separate races (i.e. compete in different Quarter-Final Heat), then regardless of their time or finish, all wagers will be graded as no action.

    For example, Contestant A and Contestant B both do not register a time fast enough in the Quarterfinals to advance to the Semi-Finals. All wagers would be graded as no action, as long as Contestant A and Contestant B did not compete in the same exact Quarter-Final Heat versus each other.

  4. When two (or more) contestants reach the Finals, then order of finish in the Final will determine the winner for the "Best Finishing Position" contest.

Multi-Way Wagering on Winner of Event:

  1. For multi-way futures, betting all events are "ALL-IN" betting - no refunds, unless a stipulation is added that a certain participant must start for action. If such a stipulation is included, then ALL wagers on ALL participants will be void if the stipulated entry does not compete in that specific event. If there is more than one winner, the odds will be divided with the number of winners. However, odds can never be lower than 1.00.

IAAF Athlete of the Year Proposition:

  1. Any wager made after an official announcement of the winner by the IAAF or iaaf.org will be considered void.

Baseball


General:

  1. When wagering on either total runs (over/under) or team totals (over/under) the game must go 9 innings (8.5 if the home team is ahead) to have action. If a game is called or suspended in extra innings, the score will be determined after the last full inning unless the home team scores to tie, or takes the lead in the bottom half of the inning, in which case the score is determined at the time the game is called.

  2. When listed pitchers are offered, wagers on total runs (over/under) and team totals (over/under) will be refunded if a pitcher change occurs prior to both listed pitchers throwing at least one pitch.

  3. Rules for Run Line (handicap) and Alternate Run Line (alternate handicap) wagers are the same as those for baseball totals.

  4. The result of a game is official after 5 innings of play unless the home team is leading after 4.5 innings. If a game is called or suspended, the winner is determined by the score after the last full inning unless the home team scores to tie, or takes the lead in the bottom half of the inning, in which case the winner is determined by the score at the time the game is called. Monies will be refunded if the home team ties the game and it is then suspended. Events will not carry over to the following day unless otherwise specified.

  5. Pinnacle Sports does not recognize postponed games, protests or overturned decisions for wagering purposes. As long as the event is played on the schedule day, all bets have action. If inclement weather (or similar delay) pushes the start time past midnight local time, but the game is still played, all bets have action. If the game is rescheduled, all bets are cancelled.

  6. In the case of a suspended playoff game that will be resumed in a span of 96 hours after its suspension, all wagers have action and will be graded after the completion of the game. If the game is not completed within the 96 hours following the time of suspension, then all bets have no action.

  7. Money-line wagers on baseball will be accepted in the following manner:

    • Action - team against team, regardless of the starting pitchers.

    • Listed Pitchers - if both starting pitchers are not as specified at the time of the bet, the wager will be deemed "no action".

    • One Listed Pitcher - this is a wager on or against one specified pitcher, regardless of the other starting pitcher. If the specified pitcher does not start, the wager is deemed "no action". (examples: "the Red Sox versus Helling" indicates a wager against Helling. "Helling against the Red Sox" indicates a wager on Helling).

    Please Note: Typographical errors in a pitcher's name will not be grounds for wager cancellation.

  8. When listed pitchers are offered and there is a pitching change prior to the game, the moneyline will be re-adjusted and "action" wagers will be graded using the opening price for the new pitcher.

  9. A pitcher is deemed a starter after throwing the first pitch to the opponent's first batter.

  10. Wagers on totals (over/under) and run-lines (handicap) must always specify both pitchers listed, when listed pitchers are offered for the game.

  11. Double Headers: Double header games are denoted as Game1 or Game2. Members may list pitchers in a double header, however, wagers are taken on games, not pitchers. If a scheduled pitcher does not go in his scheduled game of a double header but in the other game, wagers are graded based on the Game, not on the pitcher.

    In the case a double header is played between Team A and Team B and Pinnacle posts a price for Team A vs Team B for only one game, not designating this as either Game 1 or Game 2, this shall be considered as a price on game 1. If, in fact, Game 1 has already started, this shall be presumed to be Game 2.

  12. In the case that a Run Ahead or Mercy Rule is invoked, games will be considered to be complete. Games wagers on runlines, totals, team totals and money line will have action.

MLB Regular Season Wins Over/Under:

  1. A baseball team must play at least 160 games for wagers on its season wins to have action.

First-Half Wagers (5 innings):

  1. All wagers on baseball first halfs (5 innings) will be decided on the basis of the score at the end of five full innings.

  2. If a game does not go five full innings, all first-half wagers (5 innings) will be canceled.

  3. Once 5 full innings have been completed, all wagers on the first half (5 innings) will stand.

  4. When pitchers are offered for the game, all first-half wagers (5 innings) must list both pitchers. If either listed pitcher does not start, wagers on the first half (5 innings) will be canceled.

MLB Grand Salami (Away Runs vs Home Runs):

  1. The Baseball Grand Salami will be decided by the total runs scored in all major-league games scheduled for that day.

  2. All scheduled games must go at least 9 innings (8.5 if the home team is winning). If any scheduled game is canceled or stopped before the completion of 8.5 innings, all wagers on the Baseball Grand Salami will be canceled.

  3. No pitchers will be listed for the Grand Salami; all wagers will have action regardless of the starting pitchers.

  4. For the proposition home team runs vs away team runs, the home team runs will be the runs scored by the teams batting 2nd in their first inning. On rare occasions, a team batting second will not be playing at their home stadium. In these instances, the team batting 2nd will still be considered as a home team for this proposition.

MLB Runs, Hits and Errors (MLB R-H-E):

  1. All MLB R-H-E wagers will be graded using the sum of Runs, Hits and Errors as grading factors.

    For example,

      Runs Hits Errors
    LA Angels 2 6 3
    Cleveland 14 10 0

    will result in a MLB R-H-E score of LA Angels 11, Cleveland 24

  2. When wagering on MLB R-H-E totals (over/unders) or MLB R-H-E spreads, the game must go 9 innings (8.5 if the home team is ahead) to have action. If a game is called or suspended in extra innings, the score will be determined after the last full inning unless the home team scores to tie in the bottom half of the inning in which case the score is determined at the time the game is called. With MLB R-H-E moneylines the game must go 4.5 if the home team is ahead or 5 innings if the home team is not ahead after 4.5 innings.

  3. For all MLB R-H-E wagers both listed pitchers must start, if pitchers are offered for the game. A pitcher is deemed a starter after throwing the first pitch to the opponent's first batter. If a listed pitcher doesn't start all monies will be refunded.

MLB Prop Rules:

  1. On any prop, the player(s) must start, and either throw one pitch(if pitchers), or have one plate appearance (if position players) in the designated game for the wager to have action.

  2. The starting pitchers listed in the 1st inning shootout proposition must start, and throw a pitch, for all MLB Propositions for that game to have action.

  3. For which team will score first props, the prop will be decided and graded as soon as either team scores, regardless if the game eventually becomes official.
  4. All props regarding just the outcome of the first inning will be decided and graded at the end of the first inning, regardless if the game eventually becomes official.

  5. On Total Bases Propositions, the listed pitchers and both players must start. A batter is only credited for bases if he hits a single (1 base), a double (2 bases), a triple (3 bases) or a home run (4 bases). A walk, hit by pitch, error, balk, fielder’s choice, or passed ball do not count for Total Bases Propositions. The batter must hit the ball and make it to first base without an error being committed.

  6. Pitcher propositions "Total Runs Allowed" include both earned and unearned runs.

  7. Any MLB proposition using the phrase "innings pitched" will be graded using the box score number.

    For example, a visiting starter who pitches five complete innings and then faces three batters in the top of the sixth, but records no outs. This would be graded as 5.0 innings pitched.

    Or a home starter pitched five complete innings and did not throw a pitch in the bottom of the sixth. This would be graded as 5.0 innings pitched.

    A "pick-em" match-up between these two pitchers for most innings pitched would be graded a tie.

  8. For Division Winner wagers, if two teams have the same record after 162 games, the winner of the Division will be 1) the winner of the tiebreaker game, or 2) the team declared the winner by the MLB tiebreaker system for seeding playoff teams.

  9. In a suspended game, total base props will have action only if the game is restarted and finished (goes 9 innings with a winner or 8.5 innings, if the home team is winning) on the date scheduled, or on the following day. If the game is suspended, and then rescheduled for a date past the following day, all wagers will be refunded.

    For clarity, a suspended game is a game which started (had a pitch thrown), and was stopped.

  10. For the Proposition "Player to hit most Home Runs in MLB?", if there is a tie at the conclusion of the regular season, the player with the highest batting average, among those tied, will be declared the sole winner.

MLB General Props:

  1. For MLB General Props, the result of a game is official after 5 innings of play unless the home team is leading after 4.5 innings.

  2. MLB General Props do not require any specific pitcher to start a game.

  3. If there are 10 or more games scheduled on a given day, all games or all games but one must go to completion for MLB General Props to have action. No more than one game may be shortened or postponed.

  4. If there are 9 or fewer games scheduled on a given day, all of them must go to completion for MLB General Props to have action. No game may be either shortened or postponed.

  5. Only the statistics of games declared official will be used for purposes of scoring MLB General Props. If a shortened game is declared official and MLB General Props have action, then statistics of this shortened game will be included with regard to grading.

  6. For the prop "How many players will hit more than 1 HR today?" - This prop will refer to any player hitting more than one HR in a single game. If a player hits 1 HR in each game of a double-header, that does NOT count as more than 1 HR for the day. He must hit 2 or more HR's in a single game for it to be considered more than 1 HR.

  7. For MLB General Props, if a team plays more than one game on a given day (e.g. double header), the statistics of each game will be considered independent. (e.g. "Most runs scored by one team", Philadelphia plays two games, scoring 4 runs in game one and 5 runs in game two. Either the 4 runs or 5 runs will be used but they will NOT be combined as 9 runs.)

MLB Futures: Player vs Player Season Props:

  1. For baseball player vs. player season props, if either or both players start the season on the disabled list, not on the active roster or is sent to the minors, wagers have no action.

Regular Season Baseball Series Wagers:

  1. Wagers on baseball series are based on the first three games played of each series.

  2. At least two of the first three series games must be played for wagers to have action.

  3. If only one of the first three games is postponed or canceled, series wagers stand as written.

  4. If two of the first three games are postponed or canceled, all wagers on that series will be graded as No Action and the monies refunded.

  5. A called game will count toward a series wager provided it is officially declared a regulation game.

  6. Pitchers cannot be listed for series wagers; all wagers will have action regardless of the starting pitchers.

PlayOffs / World Series Pick 4:

Each combination lists the exact order of finish of the final four Major League teams in the playoffs, specified by the order of names as follows:

  1. The winner of the World Series.
  2. The loser of the World Series.
  3. The loser of the American League Championship Series.
  4. The loser of the National League Championship Series.

 

Example: Suppose we have the following result in the playoffs:

  • The Dodgers beat the Braves in the National League Championship Series.
  • The Twins beat the Angels in the American League Championship Series.
  • The Dodgers then win the World Series against the Twins.

In that case, the winning combination would be: Dodgers/Twins/Angels/Braves.

MLB Division Superfecta:

In the event that two or more teams are tied for a place in the MLB Division Superfecta, the placement of the tied teams will be resolved with the following tiebreakers (listed in order of usage):

  1. Team with most runs scored
  2. Team with least runs allowed

 

If there is still a tie after utilizing the tiebreaker procedure, a Superfecta will be graded a winner if any possible order for the still-tied teams would be a winner.

Home Run Derby: All-Star Game:

"fight totals" & "will go / won't go" will have action if the updated scheduled rounds is more than the total listed on the proposition.

  14. In round distance wagering, if a fighter fails to answer the bell for the start of any round, the fight officially ended in the last round fought.

  15. In total wagering, if a fighter does not answer the bell to start a round where the fight has gone the exact distance listed on the total, the UNDER is the winner.

  16. For wagers that state "will a fighter win in round x", that fighter must finish the fight in round x to win the prop. For example, if you bet YES for "Mark Coleman to win in round 3", then the fight must be stopped in Coleman's favor in round 3 for yes to be considered the winner.

In this case all wagers had action since the match was not abandoned. The referee ended the match with an official result.

    17 October 2010: FC Ashdod vs Hapoel Beer Sheva:
    The match was abandoned by the referee during injury time in the 93rd minute because of crowd disturbances. At a later date, Hapoel Beer Sheve was awarded a technical win by the governing Football Association. In this case, all wagers were voided since the match was abandoned. It was irrelevant that 90 minutes were completed or that match was in injury time since the referee abandoned the match. In addition, for grading purposes, awarded technical results are not taken into consideration.

    26 June 2011: River Plate vs Belgrano:
    The match was ended by the referee with an official result (1:1) in the 90th minute without adding injury time because of crowd disturbances. In this case, all wagers had action because the match was not abandoned. The referee ended the match with an official result.

  4. If a match is suspended before full time is reached, and not completed the same day, (local time of the match site) wagers on the outcome of the match are considered void and all stakes shall be returned. If a match is suspended before full time is reached and not resumed the same day, (local time of the match site) wagers related to just the first half will have action, only if the first half has been completed. However, in the case of a suspended match not resumed the same day, (local time of the match site) most other proposition wagers not strictly related to the first half will have no action. These will include, but aren't limited to: corner kicks, offsides, players to be sent off, red/yellow cards, both teams to score, correct score, time of first goal, clean sheet, and specific players to score/not score. For further clarity, a bet on both teams to score will be void in a suspended match, even if both teams have already scored. Likewise, a wager on a player to score/not score will have no action in a suspended match, even if that player already scored. Likewise, a wager on when the first goal will be scored will have no action in a suspended match, regardless of whether a goal has been scored. Likewise all corner/offside bets will be void in a suspended match, even if the number has exceeded the posted over/under. Propositions on the team to score first, or next, will have action if there is a goal in a suspended match.

  5. Handicap Betting: Soccer games may have either a Single Handicap or a Double Handicap.

    Single Handicap: This bet type is similar to a bet on the spread in basketball.

    For example:

    Arsenal
    Newcastle

    -1, -125
    +1, +113

    If Arsenal wins the match by two goals or more, Arsenal bettors win and Newcastle bettors lose. If the match is drawn or if Newcastle wins, Newcastle bettors win and Arsenal bettors lose. If Arsenal wins by exactly one goal, all bettors receive a refund.

    Double Handicap: This bet type splits a wager into two bets, each with the same moneyline, but at a different single handicap.

    For example:

    Real Madrid
    Barcelona

    -1 and -1.5, -108
    +1 and +1.5, +100

    A client who bets $100 on Real Madrid actually has two separate bets on Real Madrid: $50 on Real Madrid -1 at -108 and $50 on Real Madrid -1.5 at -108.

    A client who bets $50 on Barcelona actually has two separate bets on Barcelona: $25 on Barcelona +1 at +100 and $25 on Barcelona +1.5 at +100.

  6. Overs/Unders: A match must reach full time for wagers on the total number of goals scored in the match to be valid.

  7. Should there be a dispute over a proposition (examples include, but are not limited to: name of the first goalscorer; time of a goal) wagers will be settled and paid based on the reports of the sporting media.

  8. Wagers on the first half of a soccer match include 45 minutes of play plus any stoppage time added by the referee at the end of the first half. If the first half is not completed, wagers shall be void and stakes returned.

  9. Wagers on the second half of a soccer match include 45 minutes of play plus any stoppage time added by the referee at the end of the second half. Extra periods, golden goals, and shootouts are not included in second half wagering. Goals scored in the first half do not count toward the second half wager.

    Example: Suppose AC Milan lead Juventus 1-0 at half time and the odds on the second half are Juventus -0.5. The -0.5 applies to the second half of play only. Therefore Juventus bettors win if Juventus scores more goals in the second half than AC Milan scores in the second half. AC Milan bettors win if the teams score an equal number of goals in the second half, or if AC Milan scores more goals in the second half than Juventus scores in the second half.

    The match must reach full time for second half wagers to stand.

  10. Bets on teams to qualify or to advance to the next round of a competition:

    Bets are paid out on the referee’s final whistle at the match’s natural conclusion, whether the match is decided in regular time, extra time, or in a penalty shootout. Extra time and penalty shootouts are always included for betting purposes.

    In a one-leg match all bets have action once the match kicks off. If the referee abandons a one-leg match (for reasons including, but not limited to: crowd disturbances, unplayability of the pitch, or one team not having enough players to continue) bets will be paid based on decisions of the relevant governing body. Bets will stand while the governing body considers the circumstances of the abandonment and determines what remedy is to be taken (including, but no limited to: forfeiture, resumption of play at a later time, or a replay). If a team is disqualified before the match kicks off, all bets are void. If the rules prescribe a replay for a drawn match, all bets stand for the replay.

    In a two-leg match, all bets have action once the second leg kicks off, provided that the first leg has not been ruled a forfeit. If the first leg is ruled a forfeit, all bets on teams ‘to qualify’ or ‘to advance’ are void. If the second leg is abandoned, all bets remain valid and will be paid based on decisions of the relevant governing body.

  11. Wagers made on a team winning a specific cup or trophy will have action through Extra Time and Penalty Kicks. For example, a bet made on AC Milan to win the Champions League Trophy would have action through Extra Time and Penalty Kicks and would be graded on the result after those added sessions(if they were needed to be played).

  12. For proposition bets concerning total number of goals on a specific day in a specific league/competition, the exact number of matches must be played on that day and wagers will be decided based on two halves of 45 minutes each and any time the referee adds to compensate for injuries and other stoppages. Goals scored in periods of extra time or penalty shootouts do not count.

    For example, a prop for total number of goals for 3 English Premiere matches on a Sunday, must have all 3 matches completed for action on that day. If one or more games is not played (or completed) on that Sunday, the wager has no action.

  13. For proposition bets concerning home vs away goals on a specific day in a specific league/competition, the exact number of matches must be played on that day and wagers will be decided based on two halves of 45 minutes each and any time the referee adds to compensate for injuries and other stoppages. Goals scored in periods of extra time or penalty shootouts do not count.

    For example, a prop for home vs away goals for 3 English Premiere matches on a Sunday, must have all 3 matches completed for action on that day. If one or more games is not played (or completed) on that Sunday, the wager has no action.

  14. For proposition bets concerning home vs away goals for a given League or competition on a given day, the team listed on top in a neutral field game (denoted by "(n)") will be considered the home team.

  15. Player Proposition:
    1. A proposition bet concerning if a player will score, or not score, in a specific match includes regulation time (plus injury time) only. Own goals do not count. For wagers to have action, the player must start the match. Bets on any player who does not start the match will be cancelled.
    2. Hat Trick and Brace Propositions: For grading purposes, only goals in regulation time, or any time the referee adds to compensate for injuries and other stoppages, are included. Own goals do not count.

     
  16. Bookings Propositions:
    1. For grading purposes, both yellow and red cards are included in Bookings Propositions. Yellow cards count as 1 point and red cards count as 2 points.
    2. Two yellow cards shown to the same player leading to an automatic red card will count as 3 points: 1 point for the 1st yellow card and 2 points for the red card. The 2nd yellow card will not be counted.
    3. For grading purposes, yellow or red cards shown to any “non-player” (player on the bench, manager, coach or other staff) do not count for Bookings Propositions.
    4. Yellow or red cards shown during periods of extra time are not included. Only yellow and red cards shown during regulation time, or any time the referee adds to compensate for injuries and other stoppages, are included.
     

  17. Corner Kick Proposition: For grading purposes, Corner Kicks which happen in periods of extra time are not included. Only Corner Kicks which take place during regulation time, or any time the referee adds to compensate for injuries and other stoppages, are included.

  18. Offsides Proposition: For grading purposes, Offsides which happen in periods of extra time are not included. Only Offsides which take place during regulation time, or any time the referee adds to compensate for injuries and other stoppages, are included.

  19. Exact Score, Total number of Goals, Team Number of Goals, Both Teams to Score, Double Chance and any Handicap Propositions: For grading purposes, only goals in regulation time, or any time the referee adds to compensate for injuries and other stoppages, are included.

  20. Head to Head Last Longer Propositions:
    1. Winner will be decided on who advances further in tournament. In a Head to Head between two teams that reach the final, the winner of the final will be graded as team to advance further.
    2. If two teams go out in same round, or both in group stage, then Head to Head proposition between these teams will be graded as no action, regardless of the time or date of their respective games or regardless of their standing in group.
     
  21. In any match with a forfeit, all wagers will have no action, regardless of how the governing body of that league scores a forfeit.

  22. For proposition wagers on which team will score first, only goals in regulation time or any added injury time will count. If there are zero goals in regulation/injury time, then all wagers on this proposition will have no action and be refunded.

  23. For halftime/fulltime score propositions, only goals in regulation time or any added injury time will count. If match does not go full time, then all wagers on this proposition will be refunded.

  24. For correct score propositions, only goals in regulation time or any added injury time will count. If the score is 0-0 in Full Time, then no goals or exact score of 0-0 will be declared the winner.

  25. A Clean Sheet will be defined as a team not allowing a goal in regulation or added injury time only. Any goals allowed in Extra Time or Penalty shootouts will not affect this wager.

  26. For "will a team have a clean sheet and win" propositions, the team must have a clean sheet(as defined above) and be ahead at the end of regulation/injury time. If the team is not ahead at the end of regulation/injury time, then the related proposition will be graded NO.

  27. Any discipline (yellow card, red card, sending off, penalty) that occurs after the whistle that ends regulation time will not count toward related propositions for that match.

  28. At times (in the Champion's League or other major competitions) we may offer the proposition "will both Team A and Team B win on a given day." Wagers on this proposition will be graded based on Full Time (extra time, and shootouts are not included). If either team does not win in Full Time, then NO bets will be graded as winners and YES bets will lose.

    For action, both games must reach Full Time. If either game is suspended before full time is reached, and not completed the same day, (local time of the match site) wagers on the outcome of this proposition are considered void and all stakes shall be returned.

  29. Entire Tournament Propositions

    1. Entire Tournament Propositions (for example World Cup or EURO): For grading purposes, the following propositions which are related to the activity over the entire tournament (and not individual games) will include extra time, but not penalty shoot-outs:

      1. Total goals in the entire tournament by individuals,

      2. Who will score more goals matchups between individuals

      3. Total goals scored by each country over the entire tournament,

      4. Who will score more goals matchups between countries,

      5. Will a hat trick be scored in any game of the tournament.

       
    2. Players to be sent off over the entire tournament for Red and Yellow cards: Please note that unlike individual game rules, if a player receives a yellow or red card after the final whistle of regulation, these cards will count toward proposition for entire tournament total. Red and Yellow cards received during extra time or during penalty shoot-outs also will count toward the entire tournament total.

    3. In the case of a tie for the "Top goalscorer" proposition, the most number of assists from a player will be used as the first tiebreaker. If there is still a tie, then the least minutes played will be used as second tiebreaker.

    4. For all "Who will score more goals" matchups, both players must play in the first game of their respective team for bets to have action.

    5. For all propositions concerning an individual player's over/under goals for the entire tournament, that player must play in his team's first game of the tournament for bets to have action.

    6. When wagering on the total number of red cards in a tournament or competition, red cards shown to a player as a result of the second yellow card will be included in the grading of the wager.

     
  30. Soccer Rules for Live Betting:

    1. Unless otherwise specified, Live Betting wagers on the outcome of a match will be decided based on two halves of 45 minutes each and any time the referee adds to compensate for injuries and other stoppages. It does not include periods of extra time nor penalty shootouts. Occasionally, tournaments, friendlies, or other matches may have time frames different than two 45 minute halves. If Pinnacle does not announce this special playing time before the start of the game all bets will be considered void and stakes returned. If, in a game scheduled for two halves of 45 minutes each, a referee ends the game with an official result with what appears to be a time different than 2 halves of 45 minutes each, wagers will have action. If a referee declares a game abandoned for any reason, wagers will be void and stakes returned.

    2. If a match is suspended before full time is reached, and not completed the same day, (local time of the match site) Live Betting wagers on the outcome of the match are considered void and all stakes shall be returned.

      Clients accept the terms and conditions of danger zones by sending in the wager.

      Note that the designation “Waiting” will be displayed on the Pending Wager report and, if accepted, the designation changed to pending. If the wager is rejected, the wager is displayed on the Rejected Wager report.

    8. For grading purposes, when placing a Live Soccer Asian Handicap wager, the handicap and price displayed are for the match from the point the wager is accepted. Goals scored previously (ie. current score) are ignored for a Live Asian Handicap wager.

Teaser Rules


What is a teaser?

  1. A teaser is a special parlay in which the bettor gets a favorable point adjustment. Teasers are available in football and basketball, and may include sides and totals.

  2. The payout for a teaser depends on the sport, the number of teams used, and the size of the point adjustment. To find the payout for a particular teaser, use the charts on this page.

Standard Teaser Rules:

  1. A tie or "no action" in a standard teaser of three or more teams reduces the teaser to the next lowest number; for example, a four teamer with a tie becomes a three teamer.

  2. In NFL, College Football, NBA, WNBA and College Basketball, a two-team teaser resulting in Tie/Win, Tie/Loss or Tie/Tie is considered a push and all money is refunded. In addition, no action in one leg of a two-team teaser, will result in no action for the teaser and all money refunded.

  3. In Arena Football, any teaser with a tie is considered a loss.

  4. Teasers are not allowed on "alternate spreads" or "alternate totals" for any sports.

  5. If any part of a Teaser was made on an obviously "bad" line or after an event has started, Pinnacle Sports reserves the right to cancel the complete Teaser.

  6. Pinnacle Sports reserves the right to determine the base spread to be used for any teaser.

  7. Due to correlation, all correlated NCAA Football same game Teasers on games where the difference between the size of the spread and the size of the total is less than 28 will be cancelled from the account.

    For example:
    New Mexico vs Oregon. The Spread is 28.5 and the Total is 55. The difference between the Spread and the Total is 26.5. In this example, all correlated Same Game Teasers would be cancelled.

    UCLA vs Kansas State. The Spread is 1 and the Total is 44.5. The difference between the Spread and the Total is 43.5. In this example, all Same Game Teasers would have action.

All money line wagers stand.  Nadal is declared the winner while Djokovic is deemed the loser. All other bets on the Spread, total, team total and sets betting will be void regardless of current score.

Example: If we offer Player A (-1.5 sets or -2.5 sets ) vs Player B (+1.5 sets or +2.5 sets) the match must be completed.  If the match is not completed, wagers on that line are void. If we offer Player A to win exactly 2 sets to 1 or Player B to win exactly 2 sets to 1, those lines would be canceled and refunded in the case of a retirement as well.

4.  Handicap and Total Games Betting:

If a tennis match is not completed because of a player retirement or disqualification, all Handicap and Total Games bets will be considered void, regardless of the score of the match. Such wagers will be cancelled and the monies refunded.

  1. If a tennis match is not completed because of a player retirement or disqualification, all proposition wagers will be considered void. Such wagers will be cancelled and the monies refunded, with some exceptions pertaining to propositions that require the completion of an individual set.

    2. Correct Score of 1st Set (Must complete 1st Set)
    3. Will there be a Tie-Break in the Match? (Must complete Set)
  2. For unique propositions on individual matches, the official tournament website statistics will be used for grading purposes.
    Example:
  3. Total Aces by Nadal vs. Djokovic in Australian Open semi-final. www.ausopen.org would be used for grading that proposition.

  4. The time of the match will be taken from the official tournament's website. Rain delays are not included in the official time of the match. 
  5. Proposition betting for “Who will Last Longer”:
    1. Both players must start the tournament for bets to have action. If both players are eliminated in the same round, bets will be graded no action and all monies refunded.

  6. Yes/No Player to win Proposition:
    1. If a wager is posted before the tournament starts, the player must play one point in the tournament to have action.
    2. If a wager is posted after the tournament has begun, the player must start his/her next scheduled match for that wager to have action. 

Team Total Betting:

If a match ends with a player retirement, the team total bets for each individual player will be voided and graded as no action. A match must be completed for team total bets to be graded as action.

If one of the players does not start the match, or tournament, all team total bets associated with that match will be graded as no action.


Delay or Suspension:

  1. If a tennis match is completed, without retirement or disqualification, all wagers stand as written. A delay in the start of a match will not affect the standing of wagers, nor will a suspension, as long as play is resumed and the match completed.

Pro Set:

If a match is decided on a Pro Set, instead of the normal length of the match, all wagers are refunded except wagers on the 1st set winner line and 1st set money line.

Futures (Ante post) Betting:

All futures (Ante post) bets have action. Should a player withdraw before a tournament begins, or retire during a tournament, bets on that player to win the tournament lose.

Change of Venue or Playing Surface:

All bets stand regardless of any change of venue, court surface, changing from indoors to outdoors and vice versa.

Davis and Federation Cup:

  1. Davis Cup or Federation Cup wagers on the “Tie” are for that country to advance to the next round. Note that each Tie consists of five rubbers ("matches"). The winner of the Tie is the nation that wins three or more of the five rubbers in the Tie.
