Rugby Rules

Date/Site Changes

All bets placed prior to the scheduled start time of a match will be cancelled if the match is cancelled or postponed to a different day (local time) then initially scheduled. However, bets placed on matches played in a tournament final (but no qualifiers to the finals), e.g. World Cup Finals, Commonwealth Games, will not be cancelled if postponed, but instead will stand for the new date they are played. 

For any bet placed on a match that is played prior to the date or kick-off time originally stated, the bet stands if the bet was placed before the new time, if not, the bet will be deemed cancelled.  

If a match is no longer playing at the venue advertised, all bets will stand unless the venue has been changed to the opponent’s home ground, in which case all bets will be cancelled. For international matches, all bets will be cancelled if the venue is changed to a venue in a different country from initially scheduled.

Minimum Length of Play

If a match is abandoned before the end of normal time, all bets on the match are cancelled, except for those markets which have been unconditionally determined. Unless stated otherwise, all rugby league bets are settled on 80 minutes play (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in “7s” matches), which includes any injury time added on by the referee.

For example, in a match where no tries are scored, the option '20:00 Minutes and after/No try' will be settled as a winner and '00:00 to 19:59 minutes' would be settled as a loser. If a match is abandoned all bets are cancelled, unless the first try has been scored.

If a match is abandoned prior to the completion of 80 minutes (or the scheduled 14 to 20 minutes in "7s" matches), Wincast bets are settled as Anytime Tryscorer singles as long as the player played some part in the match and therefore had an opportunity to score a Try.
