Confirmation of any bet placement signifies your acceptance of our rules, whether or not you have familiarised yourself with them.
Subject to these rules, bets are offered for race meetings in Ireland and the UK held under the Irish Turf Club & UK Jockey Club or their equivalent bodies abroad.
All bets are deemed for the day of acceptance, unless otherwise stated.
We aim to ensure complete accuracy as regards announcing, publishing and issuing of prices, however, should an error occur, we cannot accept responsibility and reserve the right to correct errors.
Special bets are settled in accordance with the rules issued for such bets.
Any bet not written to our database will not be recognised by us.
All bets placed will be settled on the official result, unless otherwise stated.
Where a race is specified by using race card order, the race will be placed and timed as the card in the sporting press, with allowances for obvious errors.
We cannot guarantee to pay or correct errors, if they are brought to our attention, more than six months after the official result of the last selection to run on the bet.
The time that the bet was written to our database will govern settlement.
Where the official OFF of a race is not announced, bets may be placed up to the advertised OFF time. Any bet taken after this will be deemed void, unless we are satisfied that the bet was placed before the actual OFF.
If a bet is placed after the OFF, the selection(s) will be deemed void, if the result is known, or if the client had an indication as to the outcome at that stage.
The following are the limits that can be won by a client in respect of any one-day's business.
Horse racing and greyhound meetings where all the selections are in races governed by a full official information service within Ireland and the UK. (shows, offs and results):
•150,000 Horse racing in Ireland and the UK
•25,000 Horse racing in all other countries
•50,000 BAGS meetings
Horse and greyhound racing where any selection is in a race not covered by a full information service:
•25,000 Horse racing in Ireland and the UK, held under the governing body's rules
•10,000 Horse racing outside the above mentioned.
•10,000 Evening greyhound racing not covered by a full official information service.
Sport limits apply as to the description under the individual sports rules.
Ante-post - 100,000.
Where bets that exceed this limit are taken in error the limit will stand.
If any single event (match, game, race etc.) is not completed within 3 days of the original, scheduled completion date then all bets on the event will be void, except those on markets which have already been determined.
If any tournament or competition is not completed within 7 days of the original, scheduled completion date then all relevant markets will be settled based on the official result of the relevant governing body, provided the result is announced within 30 days of the original scheduled completion date.
Where a number of days are specified in relation to the completion of an event, the specific cut-off time would be 23:59:59 in the time zone where the event was scheduled to take place.
If there is a change to the scheduled venue for an event then all bets will stand unless the new venue is the home ground of the team originally listed as the away team.
If there is a change in the type of surface an event was due to take place on (e.g. a tennis match changing from grass to hard court) then all bets will be void.
Unless specifically stated otherwise, all bets apply to the regular time period of an event, including any stoppage or injury time played. Extra-time periods or other methods for deciding a contest will not count for the purposes of settlement.
If the scheduled duration of an event is changed before the event starts then all bets on the event will be void.
If two or more selections finish in a dead heat in a market, the return for a winning back bet would be reduced. The reduction is calculated by multiplying the original stake by the number of expected winners and dividing it by the number of dead-heated selections. The total return is then calculated based on the reduced stake (i.e. the reduced stake at the original odds) with the net winnings being this amount less the original stake.
Example 1: In a market where 3 selections dead heat for 1st place, a back bet on one of the winners for $60 at 6.0 or 5/1 is settled as follows: The stake of $60 is multiplied by the number of expected winners (1) and divided by the number of dead heated selections (3) to calculate the reduced stake ($60 x 1/3 = $20). The return is then the reduced stake at the original odds ($20 x 5 = $100). The net winnings are $40 or the return ($100) less the original stake ($60).
Example 2: Take a market with 3 expected winning selections (e.g. Horse racing place market), where 1 selection is an outright winner and 4 selections dead-heat for second place. Once the outright winner has been settled, there are two remaining ‘places’ in the market. A bet for $60 at 6.0 or 5/1 on one of the 4 dead-heated selections is settled as follows, the stake of $60 is multiplied by the expected number of winners (2) and divided by the number of dead heated selections (4) to calculate the reduced stake ($60 x 2/4 = $30). The return is then the reduced stake at the original odds ($30 x 5 = $150). The net winnings are $90, or the return ($150) less the original stake ($60)
We reserve the right to suspend an in running market at any time or decide against turning a market in running if there are problems with the feeds used to manage an event, or other technical difficulties. In these circumstances we accept no liability for customers inability to trade positions.
Customers should be aware that broadcasts described as ‘live’ may actually be subject to delays and that the extent of the delays may vary depending on the broadcaster.
There is a built in delay when placing bets in an In Running market. The length of the delay will depend on the sport and on broadcasts available for the event.
A bet placed at a price that will match, when the user confirms the bet, is subject to the in running delay. A bet placed at an unmatched price, when the user confirms the bet, is not subject to the in running delay and will be placed immediately as an unmatched offer in the market. Customers should be aware that bets that are subject to an in running delay cannot be cancelled until the time delay has expired.
When managing unmatched orders in an in running market, a change of stake will not be subject to an in running delay. A change of odds to a price that will get matched in the market will be subject to a delay, and a change of odds to a price that will not get matched is not subject to the in running delay.
Unmanaged In Running markets are markets which are turned in running at the scheduled start of a game and are available for wagering during the game but are not managed at any stage during the game i.e. the market will not be suspended if a goal is scored, a penalty is awarded or a player is sent off.
An unmanaged in-running market will be turned in running at the scheduled start of the match with unmatched bets, except for those specifically selected to go in running, cancelled. Once in running, unmatched bets will not be cancelled at any stage.
For any market that is due to turn In Running, a customer can select the option for their unmatched orders to remain ‘open’ in the market when it is turned In Running. This option is available when a bet is being placed, or alternatively by selecting the option and updating the bet in the ‘Current Bets’ panel. Once selected, the unmatched bet will not be cancelled when the market turns In Running, or when the market is reset following a goal, penalty or sending off in a soccer match.
The general procedure is for unmatched ‘lay’ offers to be cancelled when a non-runner is removed from a horse racing market, provided the deduction factor of the non-runner or the accumulated deduction factors for the market is 2.5% or greater in Win markets and 4.0% or greater in Place markets. However, bets placed with the ‘Keep In-Running’ option will not be cancelled; back bets will remain on the site without being re-priced and the lay odds will be re-priced taking into account the deduction factor of the non-runner. This feature will override any personal settings selected in the Preference section.
Generally, there is no point, other than when the market is finally closed, where ‘Keep In Running’ bets will be cancelled; however, we reserve the right to cancel ‘Keep In Running’ bets if it is deemed necessary to protect customers.
If a market is due to close at the start of an event, but fails to close for any reason, we reserve the right to void all bets placed after the start of the event. In the absence of an official ‘off’ time for the event, or a source for the ‘actual’ start time, the scheduled start time will be used.
If a market is due to go in running at the start of an event, but is not turned in-running and unmatched bets are not cancelled, we reserve the right to void all bets matched after the start of the event.
If this happens:
• and the market is not turned in-running at any stage during the event, bets placed after the start of the event will be void. In the absence of an official ‘off’ time for the event, or a source for the actual start time, the scheduled start time will be used.
• in markets other than soccer, and the market is turned in-running during the event, bets placed between the start of the event and the market being turned in-running, will be void. In the absence of an official ‘off’ time for the event, or a source for the actual start time, the scheduled start time will be used.
All markets will be settled in accordance with the PKR Rules and the market (“Info”), as set out and displayed in the Info tab beside all markets. In the case of any ambiguity, the rules as described in the market Info will be final for the purposes of settlement. We reserve the right to reverse the settlement of a market if there has been an error in the original settlement, and to make the necessary amendments to customer’s accounts to reflect any changes in the settlement of the market.
In the event of any doubt surrounding the result of a market or event, we reserve the right to withhold settlement of the market until such time as said doubt has been removed. In the event that the result cannot be verified, we reserve the right to void the market.
Markets will generally be settled as soon as the result can be confirmed. As a courtesy to customers, we may decide to settle or part settle some markets or selections before an official result has been announced; however, we reserve the right to amend this settlement if the official result is different to that used for the original settlement, or if the whole market is eventually to be voided.
Unless otherwise stated, all markets will be settled based on the official result, regardless of subsequent amendments to the result
While every effort is made to ensure complete accuracy, we cannot accept liability for any errors or omissions relating to information displayed on the Site. We reserve the right to make changes to correct any obvious errors.
It is the responsibility of each member to ensure he/she is aware of the rules governing individual markets. We cannot accept any responsibility for any errors in respect of the posting of offers by members.
Allowing for minor spelling mistakes, if an incorrect selection (team, player or otherwise) is displayed in a market, or the incorrect number of selections or outcomes are available in a market, or a market includes any obvious error, we reserve the right to void bets in the market or the market as a whole.
In order to protect the integrity of markets on the site and to protect customers of the site, we reserve the right to cancel unmatched bets at any time, to suspend betting on any market at any stage, and ultimately, if deemed necessary, to void certain bets or a market as a whole.
We reserve the right to suspend any market, at any time, at our discretion, in order to amongst other reasons, protect customers for any reason and to carry out market administration.
All information supplied is done so in good faith. We cannot accept any liability for any errors or omissions in respect of any information such as but not limited to the posting of prices, runners, times, place terms, scores, results, venues.
The General rules in Section 1 are applicable in situations where the specific rules for a sport (as outlined in sections 2 to 29 below) or the Info for a market do not deal specifically with a particular scenario.
We reserve the right to amend any of the rules at any time. Any amendment to a rule is effective immediately once displayed on the site.
All bets will be settled on the official result including any overtime played unless otherwise stated in the market Info. In the event of a tie after overtime all bets placed on Money Line markets will be void. Subsequent amendments to the official result at the end of the game will have no bearing on market settlement.

If PKR becomes aware that a greyhound listed in an ante-post market has died, the market will be suspended while we determine the accuracy of the information and the time of the greyhound’s death. Once this has been confirmed, the selection will be removed from the market and, if appropriate, void all bets placed on the market from midnight on the date of death.
If a race is postponed or rescheduled, but run at the same venue on another day, all ante-post bets will stand provided the entries are not re-opened.
Unless otherwise stated in the market Info, all bets apply to the full match duration excluding extra time.

If the venue or the surface (e.g. turf/dirt) for a race is changed after the market has been activated all bets will be void.
In the event of a false start or similar incident resulting in a race being re-run, ‘under starters orders’ is negated and horses taking no part in the re-run will be treated as non-runners.
Ante post betting is deemed to finish at the final declaration stage. All bets on individual horses will stand whether the horse runs or not, unless the horse is balloted out.
Bets placed on horses after they have forfeited their entry at an entry stage or where they have not qualified by the qualifying date will be void unless that race has a later supplementary entry stage. No PKR non-runner rule deductions are made to ante-post bets.
If a race is officially abandoned, declared void or the conditions of the race are altered all bets will be void. If a race is postponed, but run at the same venue within 7 days of the original scheduled date, all bets will stand provided the conditions of the race remain the same and the entries are not re-opened.
If PKR becomes aware that a horse listed in an ante-post market has died, all markets where the horse is a selection will be suspended while we determine the accuracy of the information and the time of the horse’s death. Once this has been confirmed, the selection will be removed from the market and, if appropriate, void all bets placed on the market from midnight on the date of death. If an accurate time for the horse’s death can be ascertained, PKR may, using its discretion and all the information available, decide to void bets from a more reasonable time.
The possible number of ‘placed’ or winning selections in a market is stated above the individual market and is determined by the number of declared runners when the market is being setup. Once the market has been displayed, further non-runners will not affect the number of ‘places’ in a market. If the number of potential winners, as stated above the market, is equal to or greater than the number of runners, all bets on this market will be void. If the number of ‘placed’ horses in a race is less than the number of potential winners listed, the winning selections will only be the placed horse or horses.
The place element of your Each Way bet will be settled according to the number of ‘places’ stated above the market. The number of ‘places’ in an Each Way market is based on the number of selections that participate in a race and can be affected by non-runners. In the event of there being less than five runners in the race all bets will be void.
Card numbers are included as a guide only; bets are placed on the named horse.
Horses are not coupled for betting purposes. If a horse is running for purse money only, or the stewards declare it will not be included for betting purposes, it will be deemed a non-runner. If this results in the number of potential winners, stated above the market, being equal to or greater than the number of runners in the market, all bets will be void.
Unless otherwise stated in the market Info, bets on ‘winning distance’ markets are on the sum of the winning distances from each race on one particular day at a race meeting.
The winning distance in a race will be the officially declared distance between the first and second placed horses.
For the purpose of these markets the maximum distance on any individual race will be 12 lengths for Flat races and 30 lengths for National Hunt races (including National Hunt Flat Races) and these distances will be applied if only one horse finishes a race. For distances below half a length the following scale will be applied:
Nose 0.05 length
Short-head 0.1 length
Head 0.2 length
Short-neck 0.25 length
Neck 0.3 length
If there are three or more races abandoned or declared void at a meeting, then all bets on winning distance markets will be void. If there are only one or two races abandoned or declared void then a default distance will be used for each abandoned or void race. The distances used will be 2 lengths for Flat races and 10 lengths for National Hunt races.
In the case of a walkover or no horse finishing the race the distances that will be applied are 5 lengths for Flat races and 12 lengths for National Hunt races.
Any horse in the PKR market that does not come under starter’s orders is deemed to be a non-runner. In the event of a false start or similar incident resulting in a race being re-run, ‘under starters orders’ is negated and horses taking no part in the re-run will be treated as non-runners.
All horse racing markets displayed are subject to PKR’s non-runner rule, which relates to the adjustment of odds on bets already placed when a horse in a race is declared a non-runner. The adjustment is made by applying a deduction factor to the remaining horses. The deduction factor for each horse is based on that horse’s chances of being a winner in the market.
When the market is opened, all runners will be allotted a deduction factor that is based on a forecast price. These deduction factors may be updated during the day based on trading in the market. The deduction factor for each horse can be found by clicking on the name of the horse.
As soon as PKR has confirmed that a horse is a non-runner in a race, that horse will be removed from the market and all bets on that horse will be void.
In the Win and Each Way markets, if the deduction factor of the non-runner is 2.5% or greater, the odds of all bets placed on the remaining horses will be reduced by an amount equal to the non-runners final deduction factor. The unmatched offers to lay the remaining horses will also be cancelled (unless otherwise set out under Preferences in the My Account section). If the deduction factor of the non-runner is less than 2.5% no deductions will be made and no unmatched bets will be cancelled.
In the Place market, if the deduction factor of the non-runner is 4.0% or greater, the potential winnings from all bets placed will be reduced by an amount equal to the non-runners final deduction factor. If the deduction factor of the non-runner is less than 4.0% no unmatched bets will be cancelled.
After the withdrawal of any non-runner, the deduction factors on the remaining horses will be adjusted to reflect their improved chance of winning.
In the event of a late withdrawal, PKR reserves the right to withdraw the horse and apply the deduction factor after the race. If a race is already in-running, PKR reserves the right to suspend the market until such time as the non-runner can be removed.
If a non-runner is removed from a race in error, the runner will be re-instated and all bets in relation to that runner will stand (accounts may have to be adjusted manually to reflect the original bets). All bets made between the time of the withdrawal and the re-instatement will be void in all related markets. The deduction factor applied to bets at the time of the withdrawal will be reversed and the original prices will become valid.
In Win and Each Way markets the deduction factor is applied to the price of each bet.
For example: if a horse with a final deduction factor of 15% is withdrawn, the odds of all bets placed on the remaining horses will be reduced by 15%. E.g. a bet placed at odds of 6.0 would become 5.10 after the deduction had been applied (6.0 x 0.85 = 5.10).
These odds may be reduced further if there are additional horses declared as non-runners and withdrawn from the market. If a non-runner in an Each Way market, results in the number of ‘places’ in the market being reduced, the revised place terms will be applied to all bets in the market.
In Place markets the deduction factor is applied to the potential winnings on each bet only, and not the odds of the bet.
For example: if a horse with a final deduction factor of 15% is withdrawn, the potential winnings on all previously matched bets on the remaining horses will be reduced by 15%. i.e. a bet placed at odds of 6.0 would become 5.25 after the deduction had been applied.
For instance, a $20 bet at odds of 6.0, where the potential winnings would be $100. If a non-runner were withdrawn with a deduction factor of 15%, the deduction would be applied to the potential winnings of $100, leaving potential winnings of $85 or a revised matched price of 5.25.
These odds may be reduced further if there are additional horses declared as non-runners and withdrawn from the market.
If two or more horses are withdrawn from a Win or Each Way market, each of which has an individual deduction factor of less than 2.5%, but the combined deduction factor is more than 2.5%, then the combined deduction factor will be applied as per the example above. This is also the case for Place markets where the combined deduction factor is more than 4.0%.
A reserve runner may appear in a market but it will not have an applicable deduction factor until such time as the horse has been confirmed as a runner. A non-runner that is replaced by a reserve will be treated in the same manner as a regular non-runner and as such the relevant deduction factor will be applied.
Unless otherwise specified, all bets will be settled on the official, final score at the end of regular time, including any overtime and shoot-outs that get played.
If a match starts and less than 55 minutes are completed, and no official result is announced, then all bets will be void, except for those on markets, which have already been determined. Matches that do not start on the scheduled date will be void.

In match markets, the competitor who has finished ahead or completed the most number of laps will be settled as the winner.

If a team is thrown out or disqualified from a league before the season starts then all bets on affected markets will be void. If the league has already started, (i.e. the first league game has been played) all bets will stand and the team will be settled as a loser.
For First Goalscorer or Last Goalscorer markets, bets will be voided on any player who takes no part in the match or comes on as a substitute after the 1st goal has been scored. Own goals do not count for either market. Subsequent appeals or rulings will not affect settlement of the market. For Player to Score markets, all bets will stand if the player plays any part in the match.
For markets that relate to the time of first or last goal, the first half is considered to last 45 minutes, regardless of additional time played. For these markets, the “0-10 minutes” selection covers the period from kick-off until just before the clock reaches 10:00. The “11-20 minutes” selection covers from 10.00 until just before the clock reaches 20.00. This applies to each of the other selections in the market.

At the scheduled start of the match, all unmatched bets, except for those selected to go in running, will be cancelled and the market will be turned In Running. Once In Running, markets will not be suspended, or unmatched bets will not be cancelled, at any time during the game. Markets will be suspended 120 minutes after the scheduled start time.
In the event of uncertainty regarding the result of any market, the determination of the relevant football authority, as notified by the Press Association, will be used to determine the outcome.
If there is a change to the scheduled venue then all bets will stand; if however, there is a change in the type of surface then all bets will be void.
Should a player fail to compete in an individual match or an event, all bets involving that player will be void. In the event of a match starting but not being completed, the player progressing to the next round will be deemed the winner; unless, less than one set has been completed in which case all bets relating to that match will be void.

Multiple bets consist of a number of legs, where each leg is one or more selections from an individual market or event. A maximum of seven selections can currently be combined in multiples, although PKR reserves the right to amend this number from time to time. All selections in a multiple bet are subject to the PKR Rules.
Certain combinations of selections, including related contingencies, are not accepted and attempts to place such bets may be prompted with an error pop-up at the bet submission stage. If a bet of this type is inadvertently taken in error, PKR reserves the right to void the relevant, individual bet combinations.
If a selection in a multiple bet is a non-runner or otherwise void under the PKR rules then all bets on that leg of the multiple will be void and the multiple bet will be adjusted accordingly. E.g. a treble becomes a double; a double becomes a single etc.
The minimum total stake for a multiple is $1. The minimum total stake per line is $0.05. For example, a 5 cent “Super Yankee” with 26 different bets and a total stake of $1.30 is allowed but a 4 cent “Super Yankee” would not. Similarly, a 50 cent “Trixie” with a total stake of $2 is allowed but a 20 cent “Trixie” with a total stake of only 80 cent would not. For currencies other than Dollar the minimum stakes may not equate; however, the calculations as described above remain the same.
Not all markets available will be available for multiple betting. PKR reserves the right to determine which markets will be made available for multiple betting. The odds available for PKR Multiples will be derived from the exchange price for the corresponding singles market.
Double (1 bet)
Trixie (4 bets: 3 doubles and 1 treble)
Yankee (11 bets: 6 doubles, 4 trebles and 1 four-fold)
Super Yankee (26 bets: 10 doubles, 10 trebles, 5 four-folds and 1 five-fold)
