Baseball) games are official after 5 innings of play or 4.5 innings if the
home team is leading. If a game is subsequently called, or suspended, the
winner is determined by the score after the last full inning. That is,
unless the home team ties the score, or takes the lead in the bottom half
of the inning. In that case, the winner will be determined by the score at
the time the game is called.
When wagering on total runs or run
lines, the game must go the regulation nine innings, or 8.5 innings if the
home team is leading. Otherwise, it will constitute a no action wager and
all money will be credited accordingly.

be no action if a pitcher change occurs prior to both listed pitchers
throwing at least one pitch.
Baseball wagers are accepted as
listed. In the event of a pitching change prior to the game, all wagers on
a team are considered no action. All wagers will be refunded to the
player's account. For betting purposes, each team's starting pitcher is
defined as the pitcher who throws the first pitch.
Any and all
baseball series wagers must have all three games played by the end of a

Wagering on baseball is done by laying or taking
money odds. The minus sign (-) indicates the favorite; the plus sign (+)
indicates the underdog. On money odds, whenever there is a minus sign (-),
you lay that amount to win a dollar. Where there is a plus sign (+), you
get that amount for every dollar wagered.
For example, let us say
that the Yankees are listed at (+1.50), and that the Expos are listed at
(-1.60). You must lay $160.00 to win $100.00, or $16.00 to win $10.00, on
the Expos. You must lay $100.00 to win $150.00, or $10.00 to win $15.00,

Straight Line Payoffs (Football and Basketball)
Member wagers 110 to win 100 unless otherwise specified.
1) Moneyline or Win Price -This is listed under the spread
column and is sometimes referred to as a 2-way line. Here the bettor
wagers on their team to win the match, weather it happens in regulation
time (1st 90 minutes), overtime, or penalties. In the case of a tie, all
money is refunded.
2) Moneyline involving a Tie -This is
listed under the moneyline column and is sometimes referred to as a 3-way
line because the bettor has three choices: Team A, Team B, or a Tie. This
type of wagering makes sense because during the regular season it is
possible for a match to end in a tie. If you wager on a team in this
scenario and the outcome of the match at the end of 90 minutes is a tie,
the wager is a loss. If you wager on the tie, and one of the teams wins at
the end of 90 minutes, the wager is a loss.
Wagering -All proposition wagers are for 90 minutes only. This
a) Correct Score - Where you
must correctly predict the final score of the game.
b) First Goal Scorer - Where you must
correctly predict who scores the first goal
This also applies to props such as red card, yellow card, corners, first
substitute or others that may be added.
4) Total Goals -
Wagering on game totals (over/under) only includes goals scored in
regulation time (First 90 minutes). The match must reach full-time for
wagers on the total number of goals scored in the match to be valid.
5) Postponed Matches - If match is postponed and
rescheduled to occur within 48 hours of the original start time, all bets
stand. If the match is rescheduled for more than 48 hours later, all
single bets are void and wagers refunded, while affected multiple bets
will be recalculated excluding that match.
6) Abandoned Matches
- Should a match be abandoned before 90 minutes of play, then all bets
will be declared void and wagers refunded. Bets on propositions that have
not been decided shall also be voided and wagers refunded. Bets on
propositions that have been decided (examples include, but are not limited
to: first goal scorer, if a goal has been scored; first half wagering, if
the first half is complete; first card, if a player has been sent off or
booked) will be settled and paid.
7) The terms full-time, first 90
minutes of play and normal time are used to denote the period of play that
includes two halves of play plus any time the referee adds on to
compensate for injuries and other stoppages. It does not include periods
of extra time or penalty shootouts.
8) Different sportsbooks apply
different sets of rules with regards to soccer betting. Please make sure
you understand GOTOHC full set of rules before wagering on
This is the most common type of sports wager, based on the results of a
single game. One team is favored over another by a point spread. The
favorite is indicated by a minus sign (-3) and the underdog by a plus sign
The result of the bet is determined by taking the actual
score and subtracting the spread of the game chosen.
The totals wager is based on the combined total number of points or
goals scored by two teams in a single game. A player bets on whether the
combined total number of points or goals scored by the two teams in the
game will be over or under the total set by the odds maker/handicapper.
Money Line Wager
A money line wager, instead of a point spread, may be used to bet on a
match-up between two teams. In effect, if a match-up is determined by a
money line, like Major League Baseball, then it will cost the player more
to wager on the favorite.
For example, the Texas Rangers may be a
(-150) favorite over the Detroit Tigers. In this example, the player must
lay $150 in order to win $100. That is, if the Rangers win, the player
wins $100. If the Rangers lose, the player loses $150. On the other hand,
the player could have bet on the underdog, in which case the player would
lay $100 in order to win $140 (10 cent line). If Detroit loses, the player
only loses $100, but if Detroit wins, the player would win $140.
A parlay wager is a bet on two or more teams or selections. It is one
of the more versatile forms of sports wagering. The player can combine
different sports, point spreads and money lines. In a parlay wager the
original stake and winnings are re-invested on the next game, and all
selections must be correct, that is, one loss and the parlay loses.
In the event of a push (tie), game cancellation, or a pitcher who
you have specified as not starting, actually starts, the parlay reduces to
the next lower number. A four team parlay becomes a three team parlay. A
winning parlay wager will pay many times greater than the initial wager.
No parlay wagers will be accepted where individual selections or
propositions are connected.
For example, you cannot parlay the over of
the first half of a football game with the over of the total game, because
the two are connected.
A teaser wager is a wager on two or more teams or selections. The
difference between the teaser wager and the parlay is that the player can
adjust or tease the line in his/her own favor. For example, if the Denver
Broncos are favored by seven points in one game, and the Seattle Seahawks
are favored by 10 points in a second game, a teaser could very well favor
the player. That is, a six point two team teaser would adjust the point
spread six points in favor of the player. In effect, Denver would now be
favored by one point (7-6 = 1) and Seattle would be favored by four points
(10-6 = 4).
In this particular example the player is wagering that
Denver will win by more that one point (7-6 = 1) and Seattle will win by
more than four points (10-6 = 4).
IF - Win Wager
An if - win wager is a bet that carries over to a second team if the
player wins on his initial selection. For example, the player has to wager
a fixed amount on one team. If that team wins, or the game is tied, then
another fixed amount, up to the original amount wagered, shall be placed
on a different team.
The player must win his/her first wager in
order to continue the action on the remaining wagers. If the first wager
loses, there is no subsequent action. Note that the player cannot have
duplicate teams in the same if - win wager.
Let us look at each of
the following examples :
Place a fixed wager
on Denver Broncos to win with spread of (-7).
If Broncos win, a
fixed wager (up to the original amount) is placed on Seattle Seahawks to
win with spread of (-3).
If Seattle also wins, the player would
collect $200 .00 on a stake of $110.00.
a fixed wager on Denver Broncos to win with spread of (-7).
Broncos win, a fixed wager (up to the original amount) is placed on
Seattle Seahawks to win with spread of (-3).
However, if Seattle
loses, the player would lose $11.00 on a stake of $110.00.
Place a fixed wager on Denver Broncos to win with spread of
If Broncos lose, and Seattle wins, the player would then
lose $110.00 on a stake of $110.00
A reverse wager is the same as two if - win wagers. This means that if
wager A wins, the bet goes to wager B. Likewise, if wager B wins, the bet
goes to wager A. On the other hand, if wager A loses, the bet does not go
to wager B. And again, if wager B loses, the bet does not go to wager A.
If wager A wins, the bet goes to wager B, but if wager B loses, the bet
does not go to wager A.
All standard reverse bets are double
action, therefore, in the event of a tie, the bet is still active.
When wagering on SAN FRANCISCO you must win by at least 7 points to win
the bet. When wagering on SEATTLE you cannot lose by more than 6 points to
win the bet. On the other hand if the line was a solid -6 and SAN
FRANCISCO wins by exactly 6 points then the bet is a "push", and the stake
or money is returned to your account.
Wagering on the total points combined on the game: To win on the
"over", the total score for each team will be added together and it must
exceed 40 points. When betting the "under", the total score for each team
is added together and cannot exceed 39 points to win the wager, if the
total score a "push" and the money is credited to your account.
Money Line Wagering
When wagering on the money line, you must win the game on the field in
order to win your bet. Wagering on SAN FRANCISCO $-290, just wagering on
them to win, the point spread does not matter. You must risk $290 to win
$100. Wagering on SEATTLE $+240, you stake $100 to win
