6.       ASIAN HANDICAPS

 

6.1     GENERAL

6.1.1       This is a market where a handicap is applied to the match in order to make the prices closer to Even Money.

6.1.2       The match favourite will be allocated a negative handicap represented with a (-) symbol and will have to win by more goals than the handicap in order to be a winner. The match outsider will be allocated a positive handicap which will be added to the final score. The handicap will be added to one side only. Half-time Asian handicap markets will be settled on the half-time result.

6.1.3       There are three types of Asian Handicap.

 

6.2     WHOLE BALL HANDICAP (e.g. (0), (-1), (-2))

6.2.1       The handicap is applied to the final result of the match and the team with the most goals after the handicap has been applied will be the winner. 

6.2.2       If the number of goals for each team is level after the handicap has been applied, it will result in a push with the stake being returned.

6.2.3       For example: Spain (-2), Paraguay (+2).  If Spain wins by three or more goals then all bets on Spain will be winners and bets on Paraguay will be losers. If Spain win by exactly two goals then all bets on the market will be pushed and the bet stake returned on both sides.If Spain win by exactly one goal, the match ends in a draw or Paraguay win the match then all bets on Paraguay will be winners and bets on Spain will be losers. The handicap (0) is the equivalent of the draw no bet market. If Spain wins the game then all bets on Spain will be winners and all bets on Paraguay will be losers. If Paraguay wins the game then all bets on Paraguay will be winners and all bets on Spain will be losers. If the match is drawn all stakes will be returned to the customer.

 

6.3     HALF BALL HANDICAPS (e.g. (-0.5), (-1.5), (-2.5))

6.3.1       The handicap is applied to the final result of the match and the team with the most goals after the handicap has been applied will be the winner.

6.3.2       For example: Liverpool (-1.5), Arsenal (+1.5).  If Liverpool win by two or more goals then all bets on Liverpool will be winners and bets on Arsenal will be losers. If Liverpool win by exactly one goal, the match ends in a draw or Arsenal win the match then all bets on Arsenal will be winners and bets on Liverpool will be losers.
Split Ball Handicaps (e.g. (-0, -0.5), (-0.5, -1), (-1, -1.5)).

6.3.3       A split ball handicap is where the level of favouritism is between a half ball and a whole ball. In this case, the Customer’s stake is being split equally between the whole ball and half ball handicaps.

6.3.4       For example: England (-1, -1.5), Germany (1, 1.5).  If the Customer places a £100 bet on England (-1, -1.5) then the Customer’s bet is split into two £50 bets. The first bet is on the Whole Ball Handicap (England (-1)) and the second bet is on the Half Ball Handicap (England (-1.5)). If England win by two or more goals then all bets on England will be winners and bets on Germany will be losers.  If England win by exactly one goal then the stake on England (-1) will be refunded and the stake on England (-1.5) will be a loser. The stake on Germany (1) will be refunded and the stake on Germany (1.5) will be a winner. If the match ends in a draw or Germany win the match then all bets on Germany will be winners and bets on England will be losers.

6.3.5       Stakes being returned will show as being voided in the customer’s account.

 

6.4     IN-RUNNING ASIAN HANDICAPS  

6.4.1       All bets on the Asian Handicap in-running market are settled according to the score line for the remainder of the game after the bet has been struck

6.4.2       For example, any goals prior to the bet being placed are ignored for settlement purposes.  Asian Handicaps will only apply for 90 minutes match betting. 

 

7.       CARD MARKETS

 

7.1     GENERAL

7.3.3     Any subsequent corrections or amendments to the result by official bodies may be taken into consideration at BetVictor’s discretion for settlement purposes subject to the provisions of Section 1.1.1.[DD2] 

7.3.4     For markets involving the time of yellow and red cards, these markets will be settled by reference to the time at which the relevant card is shown. For settlement purposes, the decision of BetVictor’s official data providers will be final

7.3.5     If a player receives two (02) yellow cards and is consequently shown a red card, the player will be deemed as having received a total of two (02) cards. No individual player will be able to receive a total number of cards exceeding two (02) in any one game. Extra-time does not count nor do cards shown after the final whistle count towards the total. A straight red card is counted as one card in every circumstance.

7.3.6     When more than one player is involved in an incident that results in more than one card being shown BetVictor will result based on TV evidence as to who the referee has shown the first card to.

FOOTBALL SPECIALS

1. MANAGER MARKETS

1.1. Next Permanent Manager
Every effort will be made to quote all potential new managers for the market, but should a manager not quoted be appointed, all bets will stand.

Caretaker and interim managers will not count unless they complete at least 10 competitive games or the club indicate the manager will be appointed to cover at least 10 or more games. They will then be deemed the permanent manager and paid as a winner without clients having to wait for 10 or more games to be completed. 
Should a club appoint a director of football this will not count in the settlement of permanent manager markets.

If one or more persons are in charge of selecting/managing the team after 10 or more games are played or appointed permanently then both or all are deemed winners but dead heat rules will apply. In the event that the named club change the structure of their management team and do not call the appointed individual first team manager, we will settle the market on the individual who is responsible for picking the first team. In the event of any ambiguity over the appointment we may determine, using reasonable discretion, how to settle the market based on all the information available to us at the relevant time.

1.2. Managers to lose their positions by the end of the season

A Football Manager will be deemed to have lost his position if he is relieved from his managerial duties by the club, PRIOR to the last match of the season (not including play-off matches).  A Manager who is placed on Gardening Leave will be deemed to have lost his position. A Manager who is given another position at the club other than Permanent Manager will be deemed to have lost his original position.   

If a club makes an announcement prior to the end of the season, that the Manager will leave his post at the end of the season but remains in charge until the end of the last match of the season, then he will be deemed NOT to have left his position.   

1.3. Next Manager to leave 
If no Manager has left his position by the end of the last scheduled League Fixture (excluding any play-off matches) then the 'No Manager to Leave' option will be deemed the market winner.  If a price for 'No Manager to Leave' has not been quoted, winner will be the manager who leaves next, irrespective of which season that may be in.

If a club makes an announcement prior to the end of the season, that the manager will leave his post at the end of the season but remains in charge until the end of the last match of the season, then he will be deemed NOT to have left his position.  A Manager who is placed on Gardening Leave will be deemed to have lost his position. A Manager who is given another position at the club other than Permanent Manager will be deemed to have lost his original position.    

1.4 ALL Manager Markets

Any bets taken after the announcement will be deemed void. Sources include, but are not limited to Sky sports and the Press Association. All manager markets are Singles Only. In the event of a multiple being placed in error all selections will be settled as singles.

Team A are deemed the winner as they have his signature and it becomes irrelevant for settlement purposes what they ultimately decide to do with their player.
1.5.8 Clubs under a transfer embargo are still allowed to purchase players via the loan and free agent system and as both are allowed for betting purposes we will continue to quote any club despite it been under a transfer embargo.
