Unibet Racing Rules
Unibet racing rules are terms and conditions that have been set aside by Unibet betting company to regulate how the game is played. It is basically a sort of contract that binds the company with the account player. In case of any misunderstanding, the racing rules supersede everything. That is why before you commence betting, you should read and understand the following rules.
- In case there is a change of location, and the race meeting is taken to a different racecourse, the betting rules remain the same. This means that the rules and betting limits of the course where the meeting should have happened are maintained.
- In case of cancellation of a race, all the live bets that had been placed are cancelled, and people who had put a bet are refunded. The refund is based on the Unibet Wager Type rules and is based on the type of bet that had been placed. (There are special rules for multi bets.)
- In case of postponement of a game, the Unibet racing rules indicate that all the wagers that were put after the final field stage are cancelled and the people who placed bets get their monies back. The refund is subject to the Unibet wager type rules. (Take note of the rules of “multi” ). The wagers that were put before the final field stage will all remain.
- If a horse is withdrawn from the race late through the orders given by the stewards, then the wagers directly from that meeting and paid as stewards. This will also include deductions from runners but is subject Unibet racing rules.
- If a wager is placed and accepted, only for it to be found that the bet was placed after the results of the game were known, then the wager is ruled as void and refunded. This rule also applies when the Unibet management feels that the results could have been anticipated, for instance, if a bet is placed when the runner is way ahead with just a few metres left to complete the race.
- Unibet reserves the right to accept or reject a wager either in part or full.
- If eight or more runners are in the race, the Unibet racing rules indicate that the place dividend is given on the first, second and third places.
-If there are seven, six or five runners, the place dividend is given only to the first and second places.
-In case of a change of field and the runners are reduced from eight to seven, six or five, the place dividend will still be on three placed dividends for people who placed their bets when there were eight runners.
-In occasions where four or less people have placed bets, only the winner will be awarded. All place bets will be considered null and void regardless of when they were placed.
- For bets that have not been specified, they will be given a default bet type of win bet.
- Unibet racing rules indicate that the win bet and place portion bets may not always get the same pay. People making bets should check the products and be sure of the type of bet they are placing.
- If there is no dividend put for an exotic runner, then Unibet will provide the defaults for winning.
- It is at the discretion of Unibet management to disregard tote pools that are under $500 when calculating best or middle tote dividends.
