Horse Rules

  • A time stamp will be placed on all wagers.

  • All horse wagers must be placed prior to three (3) minutes before the tracks published post time. All wagers placed past this cutoff will be cancelled.

  • SBI does not offer House Quinellas

    Straight wagers: Win 20-1, Place 10-1, Show 5-1
    Exotics: Exactas, Daily Double pay 100-1, Trifectas pay 300-1. Quinellas 75-1.

HORSE MATCHUPS

  • All horses listed in the match up must start in order for there to be action. However, in cases where the matchups are against "the field," (meaning all other horses in the race) and a horse scratches that is part of "the field," the bet will still stand.

  • The winner of a horse match up is the horse with the best finish placement.

Wagering on match-ups between golfers

  • Match-ups are for the entire tournament.
  • The winner of the match-ups will be decided by which golfer ends up with the lowest score having played equal rounds. Both golfers must tee off in the tournament or the wager will be "No Action" or "Push/Cancel" and all money will be refunded.

Moneyline with Tie

  • This is the most common odds used by SBI where the bettor (punter) has three choices: team A, team B, or a tie. This type of wagering makes sense, since in regular season it is possible for a match to end in a tie. If you wager on a team in this scenario and the outcome of the match at the end of 90 minutes is a tie, the wager is a loss. If you wager on the tie, and one of the teams wins at the end of 90 minutes, the wager is a loss.

To Advance Wagering

  • For competitions such as the World Cup or FA Cup a two option only line may be quoted. This is a wager on a team to advance, whether they win in 90 minutes, in an extra time period, or in a penalty shootout. There is no possibility of a tie.

SOCCER RULES

  • All odds are subject to fluctuation and amendment and are based on the result at full-time. The terms full-time, 90 minutes play, and normal time are all used to denote the period of play that includes injury time but not extra time, penalty shoot-outs, etc.

  • Bets will be accepted up to the advertised kick-off time. If a bet is inadvertently accepted which includes a match after its kick-off time, the bet will be considered past-post and voided accordingly. Game date and times posted are for guidance purposes only and are not guaranteed to be 100% accurate.

  • Total Goals Betting - Wagering on game totals (over/under) only include goals scored in regulation time. (First 90 minutes)

  • Outright Betting - Where there are odds quotes for Outright as well as 90 minutes play (ie. Cup Finals, etc.) unless "to win outright" or qualifying price has been laid, all bets are settled on 90 minutes of play.

  • Divisional Betting - In divisional betting, the finishing position of teams at the end of the scheduled programmed of matches will determine placing with no allowance for play-offs or subsequent enquiries by the respective leagues.

  • Postponed Games - If a game is postponed and rescheduled to occur within 48 hours of the original start time, all bets stand. If rescheduled for more than 48 hours later, all single bets are void and wagers refunded while affected multiple bets will be recalculated excluding that leg.

  • Games must take place on the site and dates scheduled. (unless otherwise specified)

  • Abandoned Games - Should a match be abandoned before 90 minutes of play then all bets will be declared void and wagers refunded WITHTHE EXCEPTION OF:

    • bets involving first goal scorer and next goal scorer, provided the first/next goal has been scored before the match is abandoned,

    • bets involving time of first goal, where the time of the first goal has been determined before the match is abandoned.

    • bets involving result at half time (not including half time/full time betting), where the half time result is known.

Fixed Odds

  • Like other similar types of contests, you may wager on a player to win a tournament at fixed odds.

  • Tournament wagers are considered "All-In." Refunds are not given if a player withdraws.

Match-ups

  • Wagers placed on match-ups WILL have action even if the match is postponed (due to weather) and completed on a later date.

Types of Wagers

  • Wagering on a fighter usually involves Moneyline (Win Price) types of odds.

Propositions

  • Proposition wagering is often available including total number of rounds, win by knock-out, win by decision.

  • Note that when wagering on win by knock-out, win by decision propositions in the event of a draw with no fighter being declared the winner, all wagers on these kind of propositions are deemed losers.

  • Matches must take place at the site and on the dates scheduled. (unless otherwise specified)

  • Las Vegas Rules apply for any rules not mentioned here.

Odds on major NASCAR / CART / IRL races available

  • Results will be graded at the end of the race as posted on nascar.com. If there was an error by nascar.com in the posting of the results, then the results will be regarded. If changes are subsequently made due to appeals or decisions of NASCAR unrelated to the original finishing order (ie. penalties for rules infractions, dangerous driving, etc.) the original results will still be deemed as the official results for grading purposes. Appeals and administrative penalties are not applicable for betting purposes.

NASCAR Match-ups

  • When wagering on a match-up, both drivers involved must start the race (cross the start/finish line) otherwise the wager is "No Action" or "Push/Cancel" and money is refunded.
