  5.

For example if you place a Scorecast bet with a correct score of 2-0, and your player scores the first goal before being substituted, but the match ends 1-0, your bet will be settled as lost.

Using Bet Credits

  1. We will endeavour to apply Bet Credits to your account as a result of Substitute Guarantee as soon as possible once the substitution has taken place. For Scorecast, Anytime Scorecast and 1st Half Scorecast markets, Bet Credits will be applied after the end of the match.
  2. Your Bet Credits are non-withdrawable. Any returns from Bet Credits stakes will be added to your Withdrawable Balance but Bet Credits stakes are not included in any returns. For example, a €10 bet placed at odds of 3.00 (2/1) would give a return of €30 (€20 winnings plus €10 stake), whereas a €10 Bet Credits stake placed at odds of 3.00 (2/1) would give a net return of €20, as the €10 Bet Credits stake is not returned.
  3. Stakes can be funded in part by your Bet Credits and part with your Withdrawable Balance; however the Bet Credits element of the stake will not be included in any returns. For example, a €10 bet placed at odds of 3.00 (2/1) which was funded by €5 Bet Credits and €5 cash would give a net return of €25 (€20 winnings plus €5 cash stake) as the €5 Bet Credits stake would not be returned. If a bet is void and has had an opportunity to win (for example, in the event of a push), Bet Credits stakes will not be returned. If a bet is void and has not had an opportunity to win (for example, when a Goalscorer bet is placed on a player who does not then take part in the match), Bet Credits stakes will be returned.
  4. Your Bet Credits will be forfeit and removed if your account is inactive for 90 consecutive days. Making a deposit, placing a Sports bet or participation in any Casino, Slots or Poker product is deemed as having activity on an account.
