Regular season Hockey games must be played on the scheduled date/location (location is a geographical area or city, but not restricted to a specific arena or venue) to be considered action unless otherwise noted in the specific sports rules section or the inventory game page within the mobile application or web browser application.
Minimum Length of Play
For wagering purposes, unless otherwise stipulated in individual Hockey sports wager rules, results are official after 55 minutes of play for US Pro Hockey and 60 minutes of play for non-US Hockey.
Hockey Wager Rules
Hockey wagers are accepted in the following manner:
Puck Line: A wager in which a bettor “takes” or “lays” a specified number of goals. The team wagered must “cover” the goal line for the wager to be deemed a winner. Unless otherwise specified as “Regular Time” on the individual market, overtime periods are counted in the final score. In the event of a shootout, the winner of the shootout will have one (1) goal added to its score and one goal will be added to the game total, regardless of the number of shootout goals scored
Money Line: A wager in which the bettor “takes” or “lays” a specified price. The team wagered must only win the game for the wager to be deemed a winner. Unless otherwise specified as “Regular Time” on the individual market, overtime periods are counted in the final score. In the event of a shootout, the winner of the shootout will have one (1) goal added to its score and one goal will be added to the game total, regardless of the number of shootout goals scored.
Total Goals: A wager on whether the total number of goals scored in a game is over or under a specified number.
Unless otherwise specified as “Regular Time” on the individual market, overtime periods are counted in the final score. In the event of a shootout, the winner of the shootout will have one (1) goal added to its score and one goal will be added to the game total, regardless of the number of shootout goals scored.
Periods: Wagers on any specified period will be decided on the basis of goals scored during the specified period only. This wager may be a point spread and/or a money line. All specified periods must be played to their completion or the wager will be refunded. Once a specified period is completed, that specified period wager will stand regardless of the length of the remainder of the game. Third Period wagers do not include overtime periods.
Team to score first: Settled on the first score of the game. Bets stand even if game is not completed. Overtime counts.
Team to score last: Settled on the last team to score. Game must be completed. Overtime counts.
Highest Scoring Period: Bet on which period will produce the most goals. Dead heat rules apply. Game must be completed for bets to stand.
Race to x goals: Winner being the team who reaches the specified goals tally first. Should neither team reach the total, and a ‘Neither’ option is not offered, then bets on that market will be refunded.
Various unique wagers may be offered from time to time, called proposition bets. When wagering proposition bets, unless stated otherwise, overtime does count for settlement of wagers.
Hockey Player Props
Players do not have to start for action but must play for action. If a player does not take any part in a game then wagers on that player proposition will be refunded. Player prop wagers do include overtime, but not shootouts unless otherwise specified.
Hockey season long futures are unique wagers which will be offered from time-to-time. For all season long match wagers and division betting, all wagers stand regardless of team relocation, or a change to team name, season length or playoff format. Unless stated otherwise in the market, team(s) must play in all of their scheduled regular season games as determined by the league’s governing body at the start of the season for wagers to have action. If team(s) do not compete in all scheduled games then wagers will be refunded, except for those wagers which have been unconditionally determined. For awards, the official decision made by the governing body on the day the award winner is announced will be final. Any subsequent changes at a later date will not count for betting purposes.
