All match markets are based on the result at the end of normal time, as signalled by the referee’s full-time whistle, unless otherwise stated. This includes any time added on for injuries and stoppages but does not include extra-time, time allocated for a penalty shootout or a golden goal.
Unless the rules state otherwise, all bets on a match abandoned before the end of normal time will be void unless the fixture is rearranged and played on the same date (local time). This does not apply to bets on markets determined before the interruption or cessation of play.
For friendly matches, all match markets are settled based on the actual result at the end of the game, excluding any extra-time, irrespective of whether the full 90 minutes is played (45-minute halves).
On occasion, matches may be played in a format other than the standard two 45-minute halves. In this case, the following will apply:
- Matches scheduled for 90 minutes (three 30-minute periods): Full-time bets are still considered valid. Bets on half-time markets are void.
- Matches scheduled for 80 minutes (two 40-minute periods): All bets are still considered valid.
