Settlement of bets will be based upon the official result as announced at the awards ceremony on the day. Any subsequent appeal or disqualification will not count. If an award is refused or not accepted, this will be disregarded for settlement purposes and that selection will be deemed the winner regardless. If an award is given jointly, then dead-heat rules will apply. If an award ceremony or event is cancelled or abandoned then all bets placed will be void unless the result of the specified market has already been announced.
All settlements are based on results and statistics provided by the relevant league’s governing body:
