HOUSE RULES

_________________

Last Update: February 8, 2024 GENERAL SPORTS RULES POLICY (02/10/2024)

Settlement of our listed Outcomes are governed by the following conditions, except where the rules relating to a particular sport or Outcome provide otherwise. Where there is a conflict between the following conditions and a particular individual sports rule, the individual sports rule shall prevail.

1. Sports Betting House Rules

    1.1. These Sporttrade Betting Rules (“House Rules”), together and with Sporttrade’s Terms and Conditions, (“Terms and Conditions”) are applicable to all wagering/trading activity on the Sporttrade iOS or Android Mobile Apps, or on the Sporttrade Web application. By accessing Sporttrade (as defined in the Terms of Conditions), you acknowledge reading, understanding, and accepting these House Rules, including Section 1 (Sports Betting House Rules) and Section 2 (Sports Specific Rules). These House Rules are subject to change at any time in Sporttrade’s sole discretion, subject to any required regulatory approvals, and shall be immediately in effect and binding on you. Sporttrade’s final determination as to the interpretation and application of the House Rules and the Events, Outcomes, prices, Outcome settlements, and commissions is binding on you.

    1.2 Only eligible individuals 21 years of age or older, not excluded, and located in the State of New Jersey may place an order.

    1.3 Individuals may not act as an agent or proxy to place orders on behalf of another.

2. Orders

    2.1. Sporttrade accepts orders on its posted terms unless otherwise posted or noted on printed media. 

    2.2. Sporttrade reserves the right to suspend or close trading on any Outcome at any time (notwithstanding any parts of the House Rules) and may backout trades in a Outcome or void an Outcome, subject to restrictions on voiding wagers as may be set by the applicable regulatory authorities of the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (“NJ DGE”).

    2.3. Sporttrade reserves the right to reject any order at any time.

    2.4. The maximum size of any one order than can be submitted by a Member is a risk of $200,000.00.

    2.5. Orders placed by customers on Outcomes which are In-Play may be subject to a delay at Sporttrade’s discretion.

    2.6. An Outcome resulting in a “push” (meaning the Outcome has neither occurred nor not occurred) will be declared “no action” and refunded unless the Outcome under which the Outcome is listed also includes a “Draw”, “Tie” or equivalent Outcome, in which case the “Draw”, “Tie” or equivalent Outcome will settle at $100 and the other Outcomes in the Outcome will settle at $0. 

    2.7. Outcomes listed on Events that have either not started or have not met the minimum length for an Event to be official, will result in the Outcome being voided. When an Outcome is voided, the customer’s unfilled resting orders will be canceled, her position risk will be refunded, her commissions incurred will be refunded, and her closed profit/loss on the Outcome will be reversed. For the avoidance of doubt, when an Outcome is voided, any customer who has placed at least one order on the Outcome will have her available funds reset as if she had never placed any orders on the Outcome.   

    2.8. Prohibitions exist that restrict the acceptance of wagers; No person shall make any unauthorized wager or conduct any sports betting activity on its premises or through any online or electronic means unless in accordance with the act, the Rules and Regulations promulgated by the NJ DGE, or the laws and regulations governing other betting activities which are licensed or approved by an agency of the State of New Jersey.

    2.9. Sporttrade reserves the right to restrict, suspend, limit, or otherwise revise the availability of a promotion on a customer by customer basis.

In this instance, the Member will receive a payout equal to the delta of previous restricted funds amount minus the new restricted funds amount.

  • An Outcome where the Member previously had an Unsettled Profit of over the available profits threshold of $1,000 settles.  In this instance, the Member will receive a payout equal to the  previous restricted funds amount.

    5.2. You acknowledge and understand that there may be timing issues with respect to the broadcast of sports Events, including differences in timing between the live Event and the broadcast of such live Event, and the timing and availability of the in-play Outcome may affect the offering, placement, and acceptance of wagers on in-play Outcomes, including, but not limited to, extended time for accepting and processing an in-play wager. If an in-play Outcome does not suspend or close at the applicable scheduled closure time or if no scheduled Outcomes close, then as determined by Sporttrade, all orders received or trades made after the applicable intended closure time can be canceled/backed out at Sporttrade’s discretion. Any trade made after the Outcome has been deemed to occur, or not occur or otherwise already determined will be backed out.

    5.3. You acknowledge, understand and agree that (i) you may not be able to see or otherwise receive current or recent information or data with respect to Outcomes, which may be a result of, among other things, Internet and network connectivity, the capabilities of hardware and devices, delays in coverage, information or data, human, software and/or system errors, bugs or defects, conflicts or failures of any software or system to operate in accordance with the rules of the relevant Outcome, order, trade, product or service or communication, timing or display errors; and (ii) Sporttrade shall not be liable for any inability to have current or recent information or data, regardless of the reason for such inability.

    6.1.1. If a governing body of a league rules that a team/individual must forfeit a game/Event due to any circumstances, in advance of the game/Event being started and/or completed on the field of play; all Outcomes directly tied to that Event will be voided. 

    6.1.2. If a governing body of a league rules that a team/individual must forfeit a game/Event due to any circumstances, in advance of the game/Event being started and/or completed on the field of play; all Season long Team and player statistical props and Outcomes related to that game/Event shall be eligible for settlement.

Proposition Outcomes in respect of a team or a player's performance in a single game or Event, or for a specified time period within a single game or Event, will be voided if the game or Event is not completed within the timeframe and on the basis set out in the Sport Specific Rules for such game or Event, or if the specified time period is not completed, as applicable, unless otherwise specified, or unless the Outcome has been deemed to have been determined. For example, if “Bryce Harper Over 0.5 Home Runs” is a listed Outcome in the “Philadelphia Phillies at St. Louis Cardinals” Event, and Bryce Harper hits a home run in the 3rd inning, and the game is rained out in the 4th inning, the “Bryce Harper Over 0.5 Home Runs” Outcome will have already been determined to have occurred, and will have Settled at $100.   

    6.3 Proposition Outcomes in respect of a player in this Section 8.1 will be voided if the applicable player does not participate in the applicable game or Event. Subject to any Sport Specific Rules, a player is deemed to have participated in a game or Event if said player sees game action during the game or the specified time period applicable to the proposition Outcome, as applicable.

    6.4 Proposition Outcomes in respect to a team or a player's performance over a specified number of games or Events, or over an entire season will be voided if the original schedule of games or Events is not completed, unless otherwise specified, regardless of the status of the wagered Outcome

    6.5 Proposition Outcomes in respect a team or a player's performance over a series of games or Events (e.g., a best-of-7 series) will be declared “no action” and refunded if the nature of the series is changed (e.g., a series that is originally scheduled to be best-of-7 is changed to best-of-5 or best-of-3), regardless of the status of the wagered Outcome, unless the Outcome has been determined to occur, or not occur prior.

    6.6 Subject to Sections 8.3. and 8.4, proposition Outcomes in this Section will be eligible for settlement regardless of the failure of any player and/or team to compete for any reason, including but not limited to coaching discretion, injury, illness, change in contractual status, trade, load management, failure to qualify, suspension, sanction, incarceration, or disciplinary action(s) levied against a player or team.

7. Futures Outcomes

    7.1. Futures Outcomes, including but not limited to Team to Qualify for Playoffs, Divisional Winner, Conference Winner, League Championship Winner will be settled based on the applicable league’s or the sport’s governing body’s determination of such result, as applicable. If no winner is declared by the league or the sport’s governing body, then the Outcomes will be voided, unless the Outcome has been determined to occur, or not occur prior. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any subsequent vacancy of a title will not be recognized, and Outcomes will not be resettled.

    7.2. For futures Outcomes where participants are declared a tie, the Dead Heat rules apply.

    7.3. Subject to any Sport Specific Rules set out below, futures Outcomes will be eligible for settlement regardless of any change in schedule or season length, game or Event cancellation, game or Event relocation, team relocation, and/or the failure of any player and/or team to compete for any reason, including but not limited to coaching discretion, injury, illness, change in contractual status, trade, load management, failure to qualify, suspension, sanction, incarceration, or disciplinary action(s) levied against a player or team.

    7.4. Certain teams or participants may not be offered as a listed Outcome due to regulatory requirements. If such a team or participant is the winner of the game or Event, then all listed Outcomes on the game or Event will settle at $0.

8. Results and Settlement

    8.1. An Outcome will be settled on the date of the Event's or the Outcome's conclusion and in the time zone in which the Event takes place.

    8.2. Except as set forth elsewhere in these House Rules, Outcomes may be settled based on the results provided by the applicable sport’s governing body, third party media or data providers and/or public information at the time of the conclusion of the Event or Outcome.

    8.3. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Sporttrade may result and settle an Outcome prior to the completion of said Event or Outcome, including, but not limited to, by settling some, but not all, Outcomes in a Market. An example would be a “To Win” Market in a golf Event. Outcomes listed on players who have missed the cut may be settled at $0 before the end of the Event.

    8.4. Sporttrade reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to void any Outcome  if the Outcome result cannot be determined to Sporttrade satisfaction.

    8.6.

    8.7. You expressly acknowledge and agree that the determination of Sporttrade with respect to any results and settlement of an Outcome are final, determinative and binding and Sporttrade may revise account balances to reflect changes based on the determined results and settlement.

    8.8. If there is an outage to the app or it is temporarily down, open positions will remain open until settlement and limit orders set prior to the outage will be honored and executed if applicable.

9. Change of Venue

    9.1. Subject to the Sport Specific Rules, a change in venue shall be addressed as follows:

    9.1.1. For Outcomes listed for a team sport: if the scheduled venue is changed after an Outcome is listed, but before the Outcome is “In-Play”, the Outcome will be voided.

    9.1.2. For Outcomes listed for a team sport: if the scheduled venue is changed after an Outcome is “In-Play”, the Outcome will NOT be voided, and will be eligible for settlement.

    9.1.3. For Outcomes listed on things not including a team sport: if the scheduled venue is changed after an Outcome is listed, the Outcome will NOT be voided, and will be eligible for settlement.

10. Dead Heats

    10.1. Dead heat rules apply when there are two or more Outcomes in a Market that result in a tie.

    10.1.1. If a dead heat exists to win an outright Outcome, the Outcome settlement price will be calculated by dividing (A) $100, the maximum settlement price of an Outcome, by (B) the total number of Outcomes in the Market which have been determined to be “dead heat finishers”. 

    10.1.2. If a dead heat exists in a “To Finish in the Top ‘X’” Market, the Outcome settlement price if the sum of the number of dead heat finishers and the finishers who placed ahead of such dead heat finishers (if any) exceeds ‘X’ will be calculated by multiplying (A) $100, the maximum settlement price of an Outcome, with the (B); the quotient of (i) the available spots for dead heat finishers in the Top ‘X’ (i.e. ‘X’ minus the number of finishers who placed ahead of such dead heat finishers (if any)) divided by (ii) the number of dead heat finishers.

    10.1.2.1. By way of example, suppose a customer had a position of +5 Shares on the “Tiger Woods to Finish in the Top 5” Outcome. Suppose further that Tiger Woods and 3 other golfers tie for fourth place. The “Tiger Woods to Finish in the Top 5” Outcome would payout at $100 multiplied by (2 divided by 4) = $50 per share. The customer’s payout would be $250, (not including any commission).
