SPORTS BETTING RULES
In the case of abandoned matches, or matches where the original scheduled amount of play is changed, (for example, a reduction in the number of overs in a cricket match) except where specifically stated otherwise, bets will be settled on the current result if further play could not affect that result. For example if a football match has been abandoned but the number of corners has already exceeded the maximum number specified, then further play could not affect that result.
Any multiple bet reduced by a void, abandoned or postponed match will stand for the remaining selections, irrespective of the minimum number of selections required.
Place terms on sports betting are those that were relevant at the time that the bet was placed. If you place an each-way bet and you are uncertain as to the current place terms you should ask the telephonist to confirm them at the time. Place terms on horse and greyhound racing, with the exception of ante post are those that were relevant at the start of the race.
In the event that the number of scheduled sets/legs to be played is changed (For example a match that was originally scheduled to be played over five sets being reduced to three), then match bets will stand but set betting will be made void.
Unless specifically stated otherwise in our rules for each individual sport, bets on any 2 runner market that ends in a tie or draw, or exactly the number of points quoted, where no price was offered for that eventuality, will be made void and stakes returned. Dead heat rules will apply for bets placed on markets with 3 or more runners unless stated otherwise.
With the exception of Antepost markets, unless specifically stated otherwise in our rules for individual sports, bets on abandoned or postponed matches or races, will be made void unless rescheduled for the next three days. Bets on postponed events or tournaments, such as a bet on a golfer or tennis player to win a tournament will stand for one full week from the original scheduled start date, after which time they will be made void. Bets on Antepost markets will stand until the event is completed or officially cancelled.
Set, Frame and Leg Markets: The full number of sets/frames/legs required to win the match must be achieved. If circumstances, for whatever reason, prevail so the match is awarded to a contestant before this is achieved, then set/frame and leg betting on that match will be made void.
Handicaps. The handicap is added to the team after the final result.
In the event of a change of opponent from the one advertised, then all bets are void.
Unless stated otherwise, if a match changes to a neutral or alternate venue all bets on that match placed for the previous venue will be void. If we issue new prices for the game being played at the neutral ground, then it is the customers responsibility to be aware of this.
We reserve the right to refuse the whole or part of any bet and to make ambiguous bets void.
We reserve the right to suspend any or all betting on a market at any time without notice.
In play match betting. If a match is not completed all bets will be void unless further play could not affect the result.
Jem Racing makes every effort to make sure that it does not make any errors in prices, handicaps, lines or terms when accepting bets. However, where a palpable error through system failure or human error occurs, resulting in an incorrect price, handicap, line or terms then bets will be settled at the correct price or terms at the time the bet was placed. If settlement has already occurred, then bets will be resettled and/or an adjustment will be made to the customer's account. If the erroneous handicap or line indicates an unachievable or no-contest result, then bets will be void. For example, +2.5 set handicap in a women's tennis match.
Bets placed on an event which has already started will be void unless we are offering In Play betting, in which case the bet will be settled at the correct price at the time the bet was placed. If we are not offering In Play betting, then bets will be void except where no significant action has occurred that would markedly alter the chances of the selection winning or losing.
Jem Racing reserves the right to void any bets placed either:
- after the outcome of an event is known;
- after the happening of an event which significantly alters the chance of a selection winning and losing; or
- at an incorrect price due to delayed ‘Live’ coverage of an event.
-In the event of an error that results in a bet being corrected, Jem Racing will make reasonable efforts to contact customers before the start of the event.
-Jem Racing reserves the right to recover any returns that are overpaid. This includes cash out payments.
General Horse Racing Rules
Subject to these rules, bets are accepted for race meetings held under the Jockey Club or their equivalent bodies abroad, where we make such races available to bet on.
Should there be any doubt as to whether a bet refers to horse or greyhound racing, horse racing will be given precedence.
The advertised times of races, runners, riders and results as published in the Racing Post, will govern settlement, obvious errors and omissions being allowed.
If a selection is correctly named, then bets will stand on that selection no matter if an incorrect meeting, time or price is appended. When a selection is identified by race time and number, that number will also take precedence over any price taken.
If races are set back in time because of weather conditions, the settling of all bets for the meeting will be governed by the original advertised race times.
An Ante post horse bet is a wager struck before the final declarations of a race.
Ante Post wagers are accepted all-in run or not, entered or not. Stakes are lost on an Ante Post bet if a selection does not take part and no Rule 4 (Deductions) is made from winning Ante Post bets. If a race is postponed to another day, bets placed in the Ante Post book will stand, providing the initial entry stage is not re-opened, in which case bets are void. If a race is abandoned or declared void, bets placed in the Ante Post book will be void.
If the same horse is bet to win two or more races in Ante Post doubles, trebles and accumulators special reduced odds will be offered. If Multiplied odds are taken in error, we reserve the right to change to the correct price.
When specified trials or a race that impacts an Ante post market are run, we will suspend that Ante post market.
Horses that fail to make the final declarations of a race (balloted out) will be deemed as non runners with no rule 4 deductions. Horses withdrawn on the day of the event due to Jockey Club rule 121, for safety reasons due to field size etc. will be treated as non runners ,but rule 4 will apply to ante post wagers.
Ante Post bets are settled at the price and place terms applicable at the time of acceptance. Due to the strong likelihood of a reduced field size, we reserve the right to offer reduced place terms on Ante Post bets. If, however, the day of the race market allows for more competitive place terms we will upgrade the clients place terms.
If a horse race is postponed to another day then Ante Post bets stand. However, in the event of the following occurrences happening bets on the market will be void
On an un-timed bet, where numbered selections are concerned, the bet will stand on the next race due off where that number occurs.
Where an unnamed selection is timed, but no meeting given, and two or more races with a full service share the same advertised off time, the stake will be divided equally among them.
In the case of multiple bets where the client has made it clear that only one meeting is intended, the bet will be settled for that meeting, even if other race times coincide e.g a yankee 1.30, 2.05, 2.40 and 3.30. All times applicable to Cheltenham, although there might be a 1.30 or 2.40 race at another meeting, the intention is clearly for all races at Cheltenham.
Where a meeting and time are given, but no selection, the bet will be deemed void.
Where a selection is doubly engaged and the client requests a specific race time, it will be considered a bet for that race only. If the selection runs in the other race it will be treated as a non-runner.
Should the client not state a time or states an incorrect time, so long as an 'if absent' request is not stated, the bet will be settled on the first race the selection runs in, on that day.
If two selections, one of which is doubly engaged, are included in an accumulator of multiple bets, but run in the same race, then the selection which is doubly engaged will be automatically timed for the race in which the entries do not clash.
This multiple bet includes singles and upwards on 4,5 or 6 selections respectively.
All Bonuses on these bets are available for Horses and Greyhounds with the exception of Ante Post selections. If this bet is accepted for any other Sports or Numbers bet, or for any Ante Post selections, the consolation bonuses will not apply.
In the case of an each-way bet, bonuses are only applicable to the win part of the bet. Bets containing non-runners or void selections will not qualify for all bonuses.
If all the selections of the bet win you will receive a bonus of an added % extra on the winnings of your bet. The bonus amounts will be Lucky 15 10% / Lucky 31 15% / Lucky 63 20%.
For all of the above, your win single is settled at "double odds" if only one winner is selected.
• 4 Singles
• 6 Doubles
• 4 Trebles
• 1 Fourfold
• 5 Singles
• 10 Doubles
• 10 Trebles
• 5 Fourfolds
• 1 Fivefold
• 6 Singles
• 15 Doubles
• 20 Trebles
• 15 Fourfolds
• 6 Fivefolds
• 1 Sixfold
We do not accept conditional bets.
Subject to the following rules forecasts are accepted in singles, doubles and trebles only. Accumulators are not accepted.
Forecasts are available in races of three or more runners and will be settled in accordance with the requested forecast dividend, for example computer or exacta.
Forecasts inadvertently accepted in races with only two runners, will be settled as a win single on the selection nominated to finish first.
Should one runner finish alone, forecasts in which it is nominated as the winner are settled on the declared dividend unless none is given in which case forecasts will be settled as a single at SP (or relevant tote return) on the winning horse. All other forecast bets in the race are lost.
Where a forecast is selected and no forecast dividend is returned, bets will be settled in accordance with the N.S.L. starting price forecast chart.
If a forecast contains two selections that are in different races, then the bet will be settled as a win double.
If the forecast contains a non runner, then the remaining selection will be settled as a win single at SP.
If a client asks for a forecast single and gives only one selection, it will be settled as a win single. If a reversed forecast is requested and only one selection is given, it will be settled as an each-way single.
Instructions for a selection 'with the field' or a selection 'against the field', means, in both cases, that the selection is required to win. Instructions for 'the field with' or 'the field against' means, in both cases, that the selection is required to come second.
Forecast betting is not accepted on unnamed favourites.
Where a permutation is used, which could apply either to a forecast or a tricast and neither is specified, the bet will be settled on a forecast.
Tricasts and Trios
A tricast is a bet where selections must finish 1st, 2nd & 3rd in the correct order in races where a computer dividend is declared. They are accepted as singles only.
Tricast bets accepted for races where no tricast dividend is declared will be settled as a forecast, with the third selection ignored.
Where the name and number of a selection has been given and they do not correspond, the name will take precedence for settling purposes.
Should a tricast contain a non-runner, the total stake will be invested on a straight forecast on the remaining selections in the order written. In the case of a full cover combination, the total stake will be divided equally as a reversed forecast on the remaining selections.
Should there be two non-runners, the tricast will be settled as a win single on the remaining selection. For the purposes of settling, a permutation is considered as a series of straight tricasts.
These count as races but any horse that completes a walkover will be treated as a non runner.
Fixed Odds Distance Betting
A fixed odds bet is available on selected horse race meetings based on predicting the correct total of the winning distances for all races at that meeting. The maximum distance for a single race is 12 lengths for flat racing and 30 lengths for national hunt. In the event of a walkover 2 lengths will be awarded to a flat race and 6 lengths will be awarded to a national hunt race. In the event that one race is made void or abandoned then 2 lengths will be awarded for a flat race and 6 lengths for a national hunt race.
If two or more races are abandoned then all bets will be void unless further races could not affect the result. The distance will be the official declared distance at the weigh in. Any subsequent alterations will not count for settlement purposes. The following list represents the numeric unit that is used in the calculation for distances of less than one length :-
Nose: 0.05 Lengths
Short Head: 0.10 Lengths
Head: 0.20 Lengths
Neck: 0.30 Lengths
Half Lengths: 0.50 Lengths
1 Length: 1.00 Length etc.
Fixed Odds Favourite Betting
A fixed odds bet is available at selected meetings based on a points system for the finishing positions of favourites in each race. The aim is to correctly predict the total number of points for the finishing positions of favourites in each race at the specified meeting. If the favourite is withdrawn then 10 points are awarded for that race. If there are joint or co favourites then the selection will be the one with the lowest race card number. In the event of a walkover or all horses failing to complete a race, 10 points will be awarded for that race. In the event of a dead heat then the points for each placing will be added and divided by the number of selections in the dead heat. In the event that one race is made void or abandoned then 10 points will be awarded for that race. If two or more races are abandoned then all bets will be void unless further races could not affect the result. The following is a list of the number of points awarded for the relevant placing of favourites.
1st place: 25 Points
2nd Place: 10 Points
3rd Place: 5 Points
Horse Race Match Bets
Horse match bets may take the form of a head to head match or a selected group such as a threesome. The winner is the selection that obtains the best finishing position. If all horses fail to complete the course all bets are void. Dead heat rules apply with regard to finishing positions.
Bets are settled to win unless each-way is selected. An each-way bet is a bet of twice the selected unit stake. It contains one bet of unit stake on the selection to win and one bet of unit stake on the selection to be placed in accordance with the terms advertised for the event. In general, for UK, US and South African horse racing the place part of each-way bets will be settled as per the following place terms:
Races with less than 5 runners = Win Only (the place money is invested to win).
Races of 5, 6 or 7 runners = 1/4 odds for first 2 places.
Handicaps 12 to 15 runners = 1/4 the odds for first 3 places.
Handicaps 16 or more runners = 1/4 the odds for first 4 places.
All other non-handicap races of 8 or more runners = 1/5 the odds for first 3 places.
In all races the number of runners shall be the number of runners coming under starters orders.
Bets will not be accepted where the place stake exceeds the win stake. Place only bets are not accepted (with the exception of certain specialty bets). Where place only bets or bets where the place part is in excess of the win have been accepted in error the difference will be void. Each-way doubles, trebles and accumulators will be settled win-to-win and place-to-place in accordance with the above.
Settlement of Bets
In the event of no starting price being returned then the last industry price given will be used for settlement purposes. In the event that no industry price was used then the tote return will be used for settling purposes and vice-versa. If neither price is declared bets will be void.
Favourites and Numbered Selections
The favourite is the horse quoted at the shortest odds in the official starting price, the second favourite is the horse quoted at the next shortest price. If two horses are quoted at the shortest SP, then they will be joint first and second favourites.
Bets on 1st or 2nd favourites are accepted win only at starting price. Early prices or board prices cannot be taken on unnamed favourites. Each way bets on unnamed 1st or 2nd favourites are not accepted and if taken in error, the place part will be settled as a win stake.
If an unnamed favourite is selected and two or more co favourites are returned, the stake will be divided equally among them and paid at full odds.
If a favourite is withdrawn, not under starters orders and no new market is formed, that favourite will be treated as a non runner unless in placepots where your selection will revert to the next shortest priced selection, and the lowest race card number in the event of two or more equally priced selections.
In single bets, any untimed favourite will be deemed to be for the next race due off, which is receiving full coverage, from the time the bet was placed. If a meeting is stated, but no time given, the bet will stand on the next race at that meeting.
When a horse is withdrawn before coming under starter`s orders, or is deemed by the starter to have taken no part in the race, stakes will be refunded on that selection.
In races with reserves, any bets taken prior to a reserve horse being declared to run and if the reserve was not priced up at the time the bet was placed, then any such bets will be settled on the result 'without the reserve runner(s)'. Each way bets settled on the result without the reserve runner(s)' will be based on the number of runners, excluding reserves, that start the race. No rule 4 deductions will be applicable in races where reserves are priced but do not run.
Early Price/Board/Show/SP prices
When a horse has been withdrawn then the remaining bets will be subject to Tattersalls Rule 4, incurring deductions according to the price of the non runner at the time of withdrawal. However should a new market be formed before the 'off' of a race, then only bets with a price taken prior to the time of withdrawal will be affected.
Jem Racing is licensed by the Tote to accept bets.
We can offer commission refunds of up to 10 per cent depending on your stakes.
In the event of a false start etc. resulting in a race being re-run, 'Under starters Orders' is negated and stakes will be refunded on horses not taking part in the re-run, with returns on the remaining runners subject to Tattersalls Rule 4. The number of runners taking part in the re-run governs the place terms.
Information and rules for racing in Other Countries
Bets are accepted for all races abroad where we advertise acceptance.
In races where an industry SP is made available, all bets will be settled at these prices, unless requested otherwise. In instances where no industry SP is made available, bets will be settled at Pari-Mutuel/Tote returns. Bets placed at SP on racing from Hong Kong and Singapore will be settled at our last price displayed prior to the off.
Win and Each-way for foreign pools: Horses in the same ownership are generally coupled on the win pool only. In certain countries, e.g. USA and Belgium, horses are coupled for all pools. The place part of each way bets will be settled in accordance to the returned place dividends. Bets will be settled in accordance to the rules in place at each track.
In the USA, two place pools are in operation, namely the "place 1-2 pool" for 1st and second only and the "show 1-2-3 pool" for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
It is your responsibility to specify which dividend you require when placing your each way bet. If no dividend is specified by you, then we will default your bet to the show 1-2-3 dividend. If no show dividend is declared by the race track, then your each way bet will be defaulted to the place 1-2 dividend. Any selections finishing third in this circumstance will be made losers. Coupled horses are treated as one runner for win, place and show dividends.
Place only bets are not accepted and, if taken in error will be void.
Forecasts: Straight and reverse forecasts, exacts and quinellas are accepted, depending on the type of forecast in operation. Should the instructions be for straight or reversed forecast/exacta and a quinella forecast is returned, then the total stake will be invested as a quinella forecast and vice versa.
In countries where bookmakers operate and an official SP is returned, bets are accepted in accordance with our general rules and we will advertise any additional rules, applicable to the country concerned.
Unnamed favourites are not accepted in races abroad, unless an official SP is returned. Any bets taken in error, will be void.

Total Games In Set Market Including In-Play: The full number of games required to win the set must be achieved. In sets where for any reason whatsoever, the set is awarded to a player before this is achieved, all total games betting on that set will be made void unless further play could not affect the result.

All bets on unnamed greyhound favourites or trap numbers must state the correct time and meeting, however, where the meeting is omitted, but the collective race times can only apply to one particular meeting, then the bets will stand for that meeting. If the time applies to more than one main meeting stakes will be equally proportioned for settlement purposes.

We do not accept tote bets on greyhound racing. Any such bets accepted in error will be settled at the starting price equivalent.
Settlement of Bets
Unless otherwise stated, all markets on football matches will be for 90 minutes scheduled play, including any added injury or stoppage time, but not extra time, golden goal or penalty shoot-outs. In the event of a match being abandoned after it starts but before the final whistle, only bets that can be settled at the time of abandonment will stand. All other bets will be deemed void. Note: Some matches play 70 or 80 minutes (e.g U-16, U-17 etc) but will still appear as 90 minutes on our website. These matches will be settled according to the full-time result as long as a minimum of 70 minutes is played and the match is not scheduled for anything other than two halves.
Where outright prices are offered for a match, it will signify the price for a team to progress to the next round of the competition or to lift the trophy and will include any extra time and penalty shoot outs. Where both match prices and outright prices are offered on a match, it will be assumed that bets will be for match prices, unless to win outright or a qualifying price are specifically asked for.
Goal Scorer Markets
Goalscorer Disputes: In the event of a dispute over who scored a goal, settlement will be based on the result given by the Press Association immediately following the end of the match. Subsequent enquiries will not be considered for settlement purposes. If the P.A. do not produce statistics for a match played outside the UK, the result will be taken from the consensus of the national newspapers of the relevant country as printed the following day.
First/Last Goalscorer: A price will be offered for "No Goalscorer" in the match. Own goals do not count and in the event of the first goal being an own goal, the next goalscorer will be deemed the first goalscorer. Players taking no part in the match will be void. For first goalscorer, players who have taken no part in the match before the first goal is scored will be void. Every effort is made to quote all players for a team, however, if the first/last goal is scored by a player not quoted in the original list, that player will still count as the winner. For last goalscorer bets, any player taking part in the match will be deemed a runner whether on the pitch at the time of the last goal or not.
Anytime Goalscorer: This bet involves predicting whether a particular player or specified team will score a goal at anytime during a match. Bets will stand until the final whistle and not include any Extra Time played. If for any reason a match is abandoned before the final whistle, stakes will be refunded irrespective of whether the nominated player has scored or not. Own goals do not count. Multiple bets involving anytime scorers in the same match are accepted. For anytime scorer bets, any player taking part in the match will be deemed a runner.
Scorecast: Predict who will score the first goal and what the score will be in a double. Given that the two components of this double are related, the scorecast is offered at specified, discounted odds. In the event of the nominated scorer not having entered the field of play prior to the first goal being scored, the stake is automatically placed as a single on the correct score. Own goals do not count and in the event of the first/last goal being an own goal then the scorecast will be settled on the correct score coupled with the next goalscorer.
Shirt Numbers: Predict whether the total shirt numbers of goalscorers in the match are under, between or over a stipulated middle band. Own goals count. In the event of a disputed goalscorer, settlement will be based upon the declared result of the Press Association immediately following the end of the match.
Where no teams are stated for correct score bets, then the left hand score will be deemed to be for the home team and the right hand score for the away team. For scorecast bets, this convention will stand even if the first goal scorer is for the away team.
Correct Score: We will list as many correct score possibilities as we deem necessary. If the final correct score was not quoted in the original list, then the correct score will still count as the winner.
Wincast: Predict whether a particular player will score a goal at any time during a match and the specified team to win the match. Bets will stand until the final whistle and do not include any extra time played. If for any reason a match is abandoned before the final whistle, stakes will be refunded. Own goals do not count. Any player taking part in the match will be deemed a runner. If a player enters the field after a goal has been scored, takes no part in the game, or the only goals are own goals, then such bets will be settled as a single on the full time result market at the relevant odds quoted at match kick-off time.
Corners: Predict whether the match will produce under, exactly or over the stipulated number of corners. Only corners taken will count, corners that have been awarded but not taken will not count.
First Corner: Predict which team will take the 1st corner of the match. If no corners are taken in the match, all bets will be deemed void.
Bookings Points: Predict whether the total booking points in the match are under, between or over a stipulated middle band. Points are allocated as follows: 10 points are awarded for a yellow card and 25 points are awarded for a red card. The maximum make-up for any player is 35 points in the match (2 yellows and therefore a red).

An Asian handicap is a market where a handicap is applied to the match in order to make the prices more equal. The handicap line varies from Scratch, (0, also called Level Ball) up to any number of goals in order to balance the odds and give each of the two teams relatively similar price. The handicap line increases from scratch in 'quarter goals' or 'quarter balls', expressed as + or - 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 1, 1 1/4, 1 1/2 etc. to reflect the expected superiority of one team over the other.
The favourite in a match will have 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 outsider in the match will receive a positive handicap represented with a (+) symbol which will be added to the final score.
Whole ball and half ball handicaps: 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. If the number of goals for each team are level after the handicap has been applied, it will result in a push with the stake being returned.
Split Ball Handicaps: A split ball handicap is where the level of favoritism is between a half ball and a whole ball. The handicap is presented as 0 : 1/4. In this instance your stake is being split equally between the whole ball and half ball handicaps.
For example: Chelsea 0 : ¼ Everton
If you place a £50 bet on Everton + 1/4 you actually have two bets split as follows, £25 Everton +0 goal and £25 Everton + 1/2 goal. If the match finishes as a 0-0 draw, then after applying the handicap the scores would be as follows ; Everton plus zero would result in Chelsea 0-0 Everton. Your £25 part of the bet on Everton minus plus zero would be a push and the stake returned to you. Everton plus a half a goal would result in Chelsea 0-0.5 Everton. Your £25 part of the bet on Everton plus a half goal would be a winner.
