23. Sports betting rules
If betting slips are not submitted within 90 days after the day following the completion of the betting event, the payment claim of the betting customer shall become void. sportwetten.de shall reserve the right to delay payment of the winnings for up to 45 days from the submission of the betting slip.
In the following cases, the bet shall be invalid or the betting contract shall subsequently be deemed cancelled amicably – namely with the legal consequence that the bet must be paid back to the customer,
23.2.1. if the betting event does not take place as specified in the odds list (e.g. home advantage is interchanged) unless the home team exercises its home advantage at a neutral sports facility for any reasons whatsoever.
23.2.2. if the bet is concluded after the actual start of the betting event underlying the bet, or if the bet does not take place according to the betting regulations. The time of conclusion of the betting contract determined by NetX Betting Ltd. shall be binding for the betting customer.
23.2.3. if a betting event is cancelled or does not take place, unless
(a) an alternate date is already determined for this betting event at the time of the cancellation and this is scheduled within the next two calendar days, calculated from the originally planned start of the betting event.
(b) the betting event is completed as part of a sports tournament (e.g. World, European or national championships, Olympic Games, tennis tournaments, etc.).
23.2.4. if the betting event is cancelled without an official evaluation taking place immediately upon the cancellation. Retrospective changes to the rankings (e.g. armchair decisions) shall therefore remain unconsidered.
23.2.5. if a tennis match is ended by a “walk over” (w.o.) or forfeit.
23.2.6. if matches in the Major League Baseball (MLB) are stopped or called off.
If a betting event is cancelled and officially evaluated immediately after the cancellation, the bet shall remain valid and point 23.2.4. shall apply accordingly. A tennis match ended by a “walk over” (w.o.) or forfeit shall be deemed as not held, so that the stake must be paid back.
Especially the following regulations shall apply for evaluating the outcome of a bet:
23.4.1. The results announced immediately after the end of the betting event shall be decisive (e.g. the award ceremony, as long as this takes place immediately after the betting event).
23.4.2. For football and ice hockey matches, the result at the end of regular playing time shall be decisive. Any extra time or penalty shoot-outs, etc. shall therefore have no effect on the betting contract, unless the contracting parties have agreed otherwise through a note in sportwetten.de’s records.
23.4.3. If two or more competitions of the same kind (e.g. two giant slaloms) take place at one location, all bets that were concluded before the commencement of the first event shall only be valid for the first event, unless otherwise explicitly agreed.
23.4.4. For American football, basketball and baseball, the result including extra time shall be applicable for evaluating all events and variants, unless otherwise explicitly agreed.
23.4.5. For “dead heat” (two or more contestants equally seeded), payouts shall be divided accordingly (e.g.: bet of 100, odds on the winner of 1.80, results in a bet payout of 180; in case of two winners, the payout shall therefore be 90 each; in case of three winners, 60 each). If only two starters (teams) participate in betting events (e.g. in case of head-to-head bets) and if no undecided odds are offered, the payouts shall not be divided in case of “dead heat”, but the entire stake shall be paid back.
For bets that refer to the showing of cards, the following shall apply:
23.5.1. Only those cards shall count that are shown to a sportsman participating in a game on the field during the game.
23.5.2. A yellow/red card shall count as a yellow card and also as a red card.
23.5.3. Football goal scorers – if the player, on whose goal a bet was placed, is not part of the starting line-up of his/her team, this bet shall be evaluated with an odd of 1.0.
If the betting event takes place according to these general betting regulations and if a participant or a team does not show up for this event, the betting contract shall remain valid (“play or pay”); this means that a bet placed on a non-participant or a non-participating team shall be considered lost for the customer.
Combination bet: If multiple betting events are combined (“combination bet”), the following shall be applicable:
23.7.1. If one or more events are called off, cancelled or do not take place for other reasons, without completion of the event within the meaning of point 23.7.3, or without an official evaluation within the meaning of point 23.2.4, this (these) betting event(s) shall be valued with the odd of 1.00. This shall also apply for tennis matches ended by a walk over or forfeit.
23.7.2. If all betting events are called off, cancelled or do not take place for other reasons, without completion of the event within the meaning of point 24.2.3, or without an official evaluation within the meaning of point 24.2.4, the betting contract shall be cancelled retrospectively and the bet must be paid back. This shall also apply for “walk over” (w.o.) or for tennis matches ended by a forfeit.
23.7.3. If the contract is concluded only after the start of one or more events, the odd for this event shall be 1.00. If the bet is placed only after the start of all events, point 23.2.2 shall apply accordingly.
sportwetten.de shall assume no responsibility for defective data links in connection with contract conclusions and/or for circumstances that do not fall within the sphere of influence of NetX Betting Ltd., such as non-transmitted, incomplete or destroyed data, from which the customer may incur losses, including financial losses.
If a betting customer loses an amount above the norm within a certain period of time, sportwetten.de shall reserve the right to take appropriate measures for the protection of the betting customer.
24. Limits on winnings
A general payout limit of EUR 50,000 shall apply. A general winnings limit of EUR 50,000 per customer and week shall apply. Deviating payout/winnings limits may apply.
Per betting slip, a general winnings limit of EUR 50,000 shall apply. Deviating winnings limits may apply.
For your betting account in the Internet, you yourself can impose limits for deposits, bets as well as losses, without indication of reasons, in order to control your betting behaviour. For such limits, you can choose periods of 24 hours, 7 or 30 days. During the chosen period, you can no longer make any deposits or place any bets as soon as the defined limit is reached. The corresponding settings can be made online or by notifying the customer service. Inquiries about or changes to the settings regarding the reductions of limits shall be processed immediately; increases of limits shall enter into force according to the Malta Remote Gaming Regulations only with a delay of seven days.
NetX Betting Ltd. shall not be obligated to monitor the gaming behaviour of the customer, but shall reserve the right to impose limits on the customer if there are indications of a problematic gaming behaviour. The customer shall be informed accordingly about the limitation. sportwetten.de shall reserve the right to appropriately reduce the limits on bets, whose total winnings exceed the limits set by sportwetten.de for the event, so that these limits are not exceeded.
25. Betting conditions
The betting customer shall explicitly declare the accuracy of all details provided during the registration onwww.sportwetten.de. The unintentional or intentional entry of incorrect customer data (e.g. first and last name, date of birth, address, email address, etc.) shall, in any case, result in all bets and winnings associated with this customer account not being paid out by sportwetten.de.
A player must register personally and make a first-time credit by remittance to an account specified by sportwetten.de, through a payment via credit card or using another deposit method offered by sportwetten.de. For each registered betting customer, a betting account shall be created, in which all deposits, bets, winnings and withdrawals shall be entered separately.
The betting account set up by sportwetten.de shall be maintained for the account and at the risk of the betting customer. sportwetten.de shall assume no liability for misuse of the betting account by unauthorised persons. The betting customer is therefore advised to keep the customer data, especially user name and password, confidential as all account movements take place for the account of the betting customer with specification of the customer data (by means of a security question).
Deposits to the betting account can be made by remittance to the accounts specified by sportwetten.de or by credit card and by other payment methods offered by sportwetten.de.
Bets can only be accepted if the entire amount of the bet is credited to the account specified by sportwetten.de in time before the start of the sports event(s) underlying the bet(s). Even in case of credit card payment, bets can only be accepted if the respective credit card organisation confirms the amount in time.
At the time of placement of the bet, the betting account must show sufficient balance for full coverage.
Deposits to and withdrawals from the betting account of the betting customer shall, without exception, be accepted only in the currency offered by sportwetten.de. The customer shall bear the exchange risk. The same shall apply for the stakes paid when placing bets.
Winnings shall be credited to the betting account and can either be used for placing further bets or, upon explicit request of the betting customer, be paid out via bank transfer. Payout by way of postal money order, cash payment or crossed cheque shall not be possible. sportwetten.de shall reserve the right to make payments only after a corresponding verification of the betting customer. Payments can only be made to the bank account, which the customer has registered with sportwetten.de. Limits and processing fees may be imposed on deposits and withdrawals.
Every sportwetten.de customer must verify his/her identity prior to the first payout. sportwetten.de may, at any time, demand that the customer submits certain documents for proof of identity in order to verify his/her identity. sportwetten.de shall reserve the right to retain all funds and/or winnings until the requested documents are submitted. You may be asked to submit one or more of the following documents:
25.9.1. A copy of a valid ID document that has been issued by the competent authority of a recognised state/country, e.g. recognised or permitted passport, personal identity card, passport or ID card replacement. When verifying the identity of a customer, we may also ask to submit a gas, water or electricity bill or a rental agreement (not older than 3 months).
25.9.2. A copy of bank certificates, account statements, e.g. of a Skrill account.
Complaints against account statements and against the balances indicated therein must be lodged by means of a registered letter at the latest within 30 days from the end of the month, in which the betting event took place.
In case of an obvious error by sportwetten.de in the calculation of odds, sportwetten.de shall have the right to correct such erroneous odds without additionally notifying the betting customer and to also make corresponding changes to the customer’s betting account.
sportwetten.de shall be entitled to correct any obvious mistakes in the preparation of customer account statements that result from errors.
With respect to the data transmitted via the Internet between sportwetten.de and the customer in both directions, sportwetten.de shall assume no liability for this data being transmitted completely and without error.
The betting customer agrees that the personal data being obtained by sportwetten.de within the framework of the betting conclusions shall be stored and used by it. All the personal data shall only be available to persons, who have been authorised by sportwetten.de and who have the right to know such data within the scope of their tasks. The betting customer furthermore agrees to receiving advertising material as well as other publications and information from sportwetten.de via post, fax, text message or e-mail. Odds lists shall not be sent separately and can be viewed by the betting customer at any time on the sportwetten.de website or app.
By consenting to the GTC, you shall agree that the varied personal data provided by you may be forwarded to third parties and used for marketing purposes. This customer data shall be made anonymous if possible and provided to partner companies that collaborate with sportwetten.de.
Per betting customer, only one registration and thus only one betting account shall be permitted. In the event of violation, all accounts shall be blocked and any bonuses or resulting winnings shall be cancelled.
If it is revealed that a betting customer has, contrary to the betting regulations, opened several accounts and placed the same bet with these accounts, the winnings limits shall apply for the total winnings obtained from these bets. sportwetten.de shall, under no circumstances, be liable to the betting customer for any theoretical loss of winnings as a result of such reductions.
By participating in a promotion, the customer shall accept the participation conditions for the respective promotion, communicated separately on the www.sportwetten.de website.
sportwetten.de shall be entitled to restrict, limit or block the access for certain customers at its own, exclusive and unlimited discretion.
All time indications by sportwetten.de shall refer to Central European Time (CET).
Bets on football games, that have already been decided at the time of the cancellation (live bets, half-time bets, period bets, overbetting / underbetting, first goal, etc.), shall be evaluated independent from the time of interruption or resumption.
26. Live bets
Live bets are marked as such through an addendum in the betting offer and/or on the betting ticket (live or live bet). These bets shall explicitly be open for betting even after the event has started. In this form of betting, the odds vary dynamically and are continuously adjusted to the latest status of the match. The results given immediately after the end of the respective bet shall be decisive for the evaluation of the live bet. Subsequent changes (e.g. armchair decisions) shall have no influence on the evaluation of the live bet offered.
Football live bets
The guidelines of the general betting regulations shall also apply for the game evaluation of football live bets. Thus, bets on a game without official valuation shall be declared invalid. Exceptions shall include special bets, which were already decided before the time of cancellation (e.g. bets on the half-time score, if the game is cancelled in the second half). These shall be evaluated according to the respective outcome, irrespective of the further course of the game.
Formula1 live bets
The general betting regulations shall also apply for live bets in Formula1 as regards the game evaluation. Exceptions shall again include special bets, which were already decided before the time of a possible cancellation (e.g. “Who is leading after ten rounds?” bet if the race is cancelled in the fifteenth round) and shall be considered valid.
If the outcome of a betting event (e.g. “Who shall win the third game?” or “Who shall win the next corner kick?”) cannot be clearly determined due to a loss of picture or the end of television coverage by the television channel indicated by sportwetten.de within the scope of the live bet, the directly affected bets shall be evaluated with the odd of 1.00.
The following shall apply for all other sports: For all live bets, the general betting regulations shall apply as regards the game evaluation. An exception shall be special bets, which were decided before the time of a possible cancellation. These shall be considered valid.
Bets shall become invalid if the game is listed incorrectly.
If the name of a team is changed (due to leaving an organisation, joining a different organisation or an official name change), all bets shall remain valid.
If a “walk over” is granted to a player/team on at least one card before the match starts, bets shall become invalid.
If a card is repeated due to a technical problem, on which the players had no influence, bets placed before the game shall remain valid on the repeated card in line with the official result.
Bets shall become invalid if the determined number of cards is changed or if it is different from the number offered for betting purposes. If a game is started but not completed, bets shall become invalid unless the result has already been decided.
28. Rest of game bet
The rest of game bet is a special form of live bet and is marked separately. In all betting variants, a tie score (0:0) shall be assumed for the game at all times. This means that only such goals shall be relevant for the evaluation of the bet, which were made after the submission of the bet. Moreover, the supplementary betting regulations for live bets or the general betting regulations shall apply.
28.2.1. If a match is not completed, all bets placed on this match shall be evaluated with the odd of 1.00. This shall include all variants offered for this event. This shall also apply if one of the two named players is changed before the start of the match.
28.2.2. Set bets: If the number of sets to be played changes, all bets of this type (set bets) shall be evaluated with the odd of 1.00. Bets on the outcome of the match shall remain valid.
28.2.3. Tie-break bets: If the number of sets to be played changes, all bets of this type (tie-break bets) shall be evaluated with the odd of 1.00. Bets on the outcome of the match shall remain valid.
28.2.4. Tournament win: If the betting event takes place according to these general betting regulations and if a participant or a team does not show up for this event, the betting contract shall remain valid (“play or pay”); this means that a bet placed on a non-participant or a non-participating team shall be considered lost for the customer.
Tennis bets shall remain valid in the following cases:
28.3.1. Change of match date.
28.3.2. Change from “indoor” to “outdoor” and vice versa.
