Rules are a pain in the ass and nobody wants them. The main reason we have them is generally to predict in advance any issue that might come up and say how it should be resolved impartially. Most of the rules are pretty straight-forward and where possible i've followed rules and principles from UK betting companies. However some things are different in the Sportsbook at ROD. We don't have the tools to manually cancel or alter individual bets, which includes adjusting prices to account for other selections withdrawing. We also don't have the ability to settle things as a dead-heat. Bets aren't recorded in any chronological system that has a bet number or time-stamp. Normally bets made on the day of an event would be subject to different rules compared to ante-post bets with regards to selections withdrawing. Since we don't have that capability the current rules are geared towards treating bets as a race-day bets wherever possible. This means bets made in advance on events such as a tennis tournament can be subject to being settled as a push if 'your' selection is withdrawn OR if 1 of the betting favourites is withdrawn. It's not ideal but it's the fairest solution given the Sportsbook's limitations. I'm constantly updating and rewording the rules, (i'm currently at version 16 for 2019), so i'm not going to post a lot of updates. Without further ado here are the rules in effect and posted on Sportsbooks as of April 16 2019:

This is the basic template that will appear on Sportsbooks:

Rules and general information.

Please be careful with your selections. We can't delete/change bets.

This is how most Sportsbooks will look

If in doubt - ask before placing your wager.
Have fun and good luck. (y)

(If you bet the minimum when you intended to bet a lot more and you do want to bet more on that specific outcome then PM me whilst I’m logged in. I can then temporarily increase the wager limit for you).

Please look at all the choices before making your bet(s) to check you have the right selection(s) and the correct stake amount before confirming them. We do NOT have the ability to cancel individual bets.

NBA, NFL, NHL, & NCAA

Bets will stand on any event that is rescheduled by up to 50 hours. If a location is altered or an event starts outside the 50 hour time limit ALL bets will be void and settled as a push with stakes refunded. Overtime counts if played.

_______________________________________________________________________


Rams SPECIAL BETS

Bets will stand on any event that is rescheduled by up to 50 hours. If a location is altered or an event starts outside the 50 hour time limit ALL bets will be void and settled as a push with stakes refunded. Overtime counts if played.

Win limits are now 30K on most bets, (40K in the playoffs). 1 bet per outcome. I raised limits and reduced the outcomes as members didn't seem to realise they could bet more than once.

Goff passing bets require Goff to start or play 10+ snaps in relief.
Gurley rushing bets require Gurley to start or play 10+ snaps in relief.

TD scoring refers to 'Rams only' so if the Rams opponents have a Brown who scores you won't be paid on him. Rams defense/ST or 'All other Rams players' etc, excludes ALL players named elsewhere. It specifically excludes, Goff, Mannion, Gurley, Anderson, Brown, Davis, Cooks, Woods, Kupp, Reynolds, Thomas, Higbee, Everett, Hodge, Kelly, Natson.

For TD purposes a player who is inactive or doesn't play is a losing bet NOT a push, (excludes Goff/passing and Gurley/rushing bets). Turnovers do NOT include turnovers on downs or ST blocks - lost fumbles and interceptions only! For betting on halves or quarters won the Rams must score MORE than the score by the opponent in that time period - equal scores is a loss.

Bets will be settled as per NFL Gamebook totals on NFL.com, (also posted on the Rams 2018 Wiki page). These totals are sometimes adjusted later on so all bets will be settled at least 48 hours after kickoff. Results at that time are considered final.

_______________________________________________________________________


Soccer

Bets will stand on any event that is rescheduled by up to 50 hours. If a location is altered or an event starts outside the 50 hour time limit ALL bets will be void and settled as a push with stakes refunded.

All win, draw, correct score, and HT-FT bets will be settled on the result at the end of 90 minutes, (end of 2nd half). The only exception to the end of 90 minutes, (end of 2nd half), rule are bets on a team to progress or to win trophy. Team to progress or win trophy bets will include extra-time and/or penalty shoot-outs if played.

_______________________________________________________________________


Golf

Bets will stand on any event that is rescheduled by up to 50 hours. If a location is altered or an event starts outside the 50 hour time limit ALL bets will be void and settled as a push with stakes refunded.

Listed competitors only! You are wagering on who will be the highest placed finisher from the listed competitors. The bet winner will be the highest placed finisher on the Sportsbook betting list. If 2 or more competitors on this list tie for the highest placed finish the tie-breaker will be the competitor in that tie that is nearest to the top of the Sportsbook betting list.

Example: Stewart Cink, (unlisted), wins the tournament. Ernie Els, (unlisted), finishes 2nd. Rickie Fowler, Louis Oosthuizen, Henrik Stenson, and Davis Love IV, (unlisted), finish in a 4-way tie for 3rd. 3 players on the list are tied - Rickie Fowler, Louis Oosthuizen, and Henrik Stenson - so the tie-breaker is applied and Rickie Fowler wins as he is highest on the list.

If 2 or more listed players are tied for the lead then normal rules to determine a winner will apply.

Example: Danny Willett, (unlisted), Jon Rahm, and Patrick Reed tie for the lead after 72 holes. There would be a playoff. If either of the 2 listed players wins then that player would be the winner. If Danny Willett won the playoff leaving the 2 listed players tied for 2nd then Jon Rahm would be the bet winner as he is the higher of the 2 listed players in the list tie-breaker.

Sorry if this all sounds complicated, (it most likely won't be in reality), but I can't list all 100+ players and I can't apply dead-heat rules or split winnings. You place any bet knowing the tie-breaker could come into play. If you lose on the tie-breaker you would have lost anyway.

Basically it's a normal event but i'm removing all the outsiders from the reckoning - Extra value for you!

The trophy presentation will be treated as the final result for bet settlement purposes.

This Sportsbook closes on Jul 7 2019 at 04:00 EST. Bets on any competitor who officially withdraws before then will be settled as a push. Competitors who have not withdrawn by that time are deemed to have competed. If any of the top (EDIT NUMBER) listed competitors, (by shortest price), withdraw before the Sportsbook closes then ALL bets will be void and settled as a push with stakes refunded.

Rams regular season 1 wins Over/Under

You are wagering on the 16 games of the Rams 2019 regular season.
If the NFL regular season is concluded without all 32 teams playing exactly 16 regular season games then ALL bets will be void and settled as a push with stakes refunded.
If the NFC playoffs are changed to something other than 4 division winners and top 2 non-division winners making the playoffs then ALL bets will be void and settled as a push with stakes refunded.
A tied game will be treated as 0.5 win & 0.5 lose. (A record of 5-10-1 will count as 5.5 wins).

1 bet per member. I have set the win limit at $20000 so this Sportsbook shouldn't be the major factor in determining ROD's Richest Member for 2019.
Thus: the maximum bet on Over 10.99 wins is $5747. There are other events you can wager on.

Obviously the Jul 7 2019 at 04:40 EST time is a random start time which will change from event to event.

The 50 hour limit was reworded in 2019 so it applies to both 50 hours before and 50 hours after the originally scheduled start time.

Generally Sportsbooks close 10 minutes before the scheduled start time. For Rams games or NFL prime time games it's often 1 minute before kickoff. If it's an event with an uncertain start time, such as a tennis match, bets will close 30-90 minutes before the start. Events where a competitor is likely to withdraw late, such as a horse race, will generally close 30 minutes before the start. (This is also to prevent someone from getting an unfair advantage from updated odds).

Sportsbooks on an event where there is a home field advantage will be be void if the location is changed. Sportsbooks that don't have involve such an advantage will stand if the location is changed. For example the Rams game in Mexico in 2018 was relocated to Los Angeles. NFL teams are historically 57% at home so the odds changed considerably. There was no ROD Sportsbook posted at that time but if there had been all bets would have been void prior to a new Sportsbook being posted. Conversely a UFC event was moved from Las Vegas to Los Angeles in 2018. Bets on the Sportsbook stood because there is no home field advantage for UFC or boxing events.

To clarify the rule on location a tennis match moved from Centre Court to Court #3 would not be affected. A tennis match moved from a clay court to a grass court would be affected, even if it was at the same venue.

Normally results are clear cut and are not subject to later changes. However, certain events such as a motor race can result in same day disqualifications. For betting purposes the result at the time of the trophy presentation is the final result. Changes after that will not apply to the Sportsbook.

Ever considered moving to Vegas?

This is a mountain of work you’ve done here. Props!
Thank you. I used to do this for a living when I was younger. Rules updates are normally really minor language changes or adapting to a situation or an event/sport that wasn't covered before.
