Soccer

  1. All markets are settled according to regulation time plus injury time unless otherwise indicated. Extra time and penalty shootouts are not included unless indicated.
  2. First Goalscorer – The bet refers to a specific player being the scorer of the first goal either during a particular timeframe of the event (E.g. “First goal in the match” or “First goal in the 2nd Half”), or else being the first scorer for his team (E.g. “First Goalscorer – Team X)”. Wagers will be refunded on players who do not take part in the match or else come on the field of play after the goal to which the bet refers to has been scored. Own goals do not count for the settlement of this offer. Should the goal to which the bet refers to be deemed as an own goal, the next player to score a goal which is not an own goal and conforms with the bet offer parameters will be deemed as the winning outcome. In case no goals (or no further goals, as applicable) is/are scored which are not own goals and fulfil the remaining bet offer parameters, all bets will be considered lost.
  3. Last Goalscorer – The bet refers to a specific player being the scorer of the last goal either during a particular timeframe of the event (E.g. “Last goal in the match” or “Last goal in the 1st Half”), or else being the last scorer for his team (E.g. “Last Goalscorer – Team X)”. Stakes will be refunded only on players who do not take part in the match at all. In all other instances bets will remain valid, irrespective of the time of inclusion/substitution of the player. Own goals do not count for the settlement of this offer. Should the goal to which the bet refers to be deemed as an own goal, the previous player to score a goal which is not an own goal and conforms with the bet offer parameters will be deemed as the winning outcome. In case no goals (or no previous goals, as applicable) is/are scored which are not own goals and fulfil the remaining bet offer parameters, all bets will be considered lost.
  4. "Scorecast" and “Matchcast” are odds where it is possible to bet simultaneously on a particular occurrence (e.g. First Goalscorer) combined with another from the same, or related event (e.g. Correct Score in the match, or match outcome). Should the bet refer to First or Last Goal Scorer, terms and conditions as stated in the Betting Rules will apply, where applicable. Wagers/Stakes will be refunded on players who do not take part in the match at all. In all other instances bets will remain valid, irrespective of the time of inclusion/substitution of the player. Own goals do not count for the settlement of this offer.
  5. Unless otherwise specified, or indicated in conjunction with the bet offer, all other goal-related bets will require the listed player(s) to play from the start of the match to be valid. Own goals will never count as a goal scored for any selected player.
  6. On all bets related to yellow/red cards, booking points, etc., only cards shown to players which at that moment are on the pitch are valid for settlement purposes. Cards, disciplinary actions, suspensions, imposed on any other individual which at the moment of the sanction is not, or should not, be actively playing on the pitch, as well as disciplinary measures taken after the game has officially ended, are disregarded.
  7. All disciplinary-related bets referring to individual(s) (e.g. yellow card, red card, number of fouls), will require the listed player(s) to play from the start of the match to be valid.
  8. "Booking Points" are calculated according to the following rules: Yellow card = 10 points, Red card = 25 points. Maximum points for one player are 35.
  9. "Head to Head" and “Over/Under” bets involving the performance of one or more players in the match are considered valid given that all listed players start the match for bets to stand.
  10. "Head to Head" and “Over/Under” bets involving the performance of one or more players in the event/tournament are considered valid given that all listed players take part in the event/tournament at some stage for bets to stand.
  11. All bets referring to aggregated Tournament Totals (such as Goals, Corners, Cards, Penalties, etc.) will be settled based on official statistics by the governing association. Unless otherwise stated, cumulative amounts of such bets will include eventual prolongations (e.g. Extra Time) but not Penalty Shoot Outs.
  12. Unless specifically stated, all bets referring to a particular team winning a number/selection of trophies in the same season will be based on the particular team's performance within the following competitions: the domestic league, the apparent equivalent of the respective FA Cup and League Cup as well as the Champions League or Europa League. Other trophies (e.g. domestic and European Super Cup, World Club Cup) do not count.
  13. The "Domestic Double" is to be considered as the team’s victory in the apparent equivalent of the respective domestic league and FA Cup.
  14. For settlement purposes, bets referring to the number of cards shown by the referee will be counted as follows:
    • Yellow card = 1
    • Red card = 2
    • One yellow and a red = 3
    • Two yellow cards and a red = 3
    The maximum cards for one player is 3 cards.
  15. Bets on whether a particular player(s) will manage to score from certain areas of the pitch (E.g. from outside the 'penalty box') will be settled based on the position of the ball at the time the shot was struck by the player, irrelevant of any further deflections which the ball trajectory might incur following the initial shot. For the sake of clarity it is to be understood that the lines delineating the 'penalty box' are to be considered as an integral part of such area of the pitch. Thus, should a shot be struck with the ball hovering above, or touching, even partially, said lines, the shot will not be considered as having been effected from outside the box.
  16. Bets on whether a particular player(s) will manage to hit the cross bar, goal post or any other part of the frame delineating the goal area will only be settled as having accomplished such feat if the shot does not result directly in a goal being awarded exactly after the ball hits a part of the goal frame.
  17. During certain events DraftKings might decide to offer for betting a reduced selection of participants (E.g. Any unlisted Team X player) or else a single participant as a representation of the whole squad (E.g. “Any Team X player”). In both cases for settlement purposes, all unlisted squad members are to be deemed as starters (and settled as such), including substitutes regardless whether they take part in the match or not.
  18. Bets on the performance of players starting the match on the bench will be settled as void if the player is either listed in the starting 11 or does not take part in the match at all.
  19. On offers such as Next Goalscorer, Next Carded player, Next Assist and Man of the Match, stakes will be refunded should the chosen player not take part in the match at all. Results for this offer will include any outcomes obtained during eventual Extra Time but not during Penalty Shoot-outs.
  20. Bets on “Next Assist” for a particular goal will be settled as void should the governing association declare the specified goal as having been unassisted, the specified goal is an own goal and/or no more goals are scored in the match. Results for this offer will include any goals scored during eventual Extra Time but not during Penalty Shoot-outs.
  21. Bets referring to penalty kicks conversion and/or outcome will be settled according to the outcome occurred on the field of play as per the rules governing that specific scenario and in cases of penalty shoot-outs will remain valid regardless of the format employed by the governing association during the shoot-out. Bets stand in case the penalty is ordered to be re-taken and will be settled with the outcome achieved from the re-taken penalty.
  22. As a general principle, settlement will be based on the concept that unless the penalty kick results in a goal being awarded (and settled accordingly), the first person/object/location (as applicable) which the ball initially touches after being kicked will be considered as the winning outcome, disregarding any other persons/objects the ball hits in its subsequent trajectory following any previous deflection, if any. The following examples are being issued as a general guideline on settlement:

    "Goal" would be the winning outcome in case of the following scored penalties scenarios:

    • Any penalty kick which ends up as a goal without it being deflected;
    • Goalkeeper touches the penalty kick but ball ends up as goal;
    • Penalty kick touches the woodwork before ending up in goal.

    "Save" would be the winning outcome in case of the following missed penalties scenarios:

    • Goalkeeper deflects the penalty kick to outside the goal frame;
    • Goalkeeper deflects the penalty kick onto the post/crossbar.

    "Woodwork" would be the winning outcome in case of the following missed penalties scenarios:

    1. Penalty kick hits the woodwork before it is touched/saved by the goalkeeper;
    2. Penalty kick hits the woodwork and ball goes outside the goal frame.

    "Any other Miss" would be the winning outcome in case of any penalty kick which without any deflection either by the goalkeeper or by the woodwork ends up outside the goal frame:

    Exception to the above scenarios would be in in case of penalty shoot-outs, should the ball hit the woodwork, bounce on the goalkeeper and end in goal, such penalty will be considered as having been scored while should said situation occur during any other part of the match which is not a penalty shoot-out, the penalty taker would be considered as having missed to score and "hitting the woodwork" will be considered as the winning outcome.

  23. Any decision taken by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) which conflicts with the original decision sanctioned by the officials on the pitch (including non-decisions like allowing play to continue before reviewing the video), thus altering the understood state of the match at the time of bet placement, will result in all bets placed in the timeframe between the actual occurrence of the original incident and the referee's final decision on the incident being deemed as void, unless the odds offered on the specific bet offer are unaffected by the use of VAR or have already been accounted for in the odds offered at the time of bet acceptance. Settlement on all other unrelated bet-offers, including those determined by any play between the time of the original incident and the decision following the VAR review, which are not influenced/altered by the VAR decision will stand.
  24. For resulting purposes VAR reviews are to be considered as having happened at the time of the original incident for which the VAR would be eventually used even if play has not been immediately interrupted. DraftKings reserves the right, in accordance with <Section A, Para 6.2>, to reverse any previously settled offers where the settlement becomes inaccurate following the final referee decision, providing said decision is taken and communicated before the conclusion of the match and/or timeframe listed.

    In order to avoid any doubts, DraftKings will consider the VAR as having been used if it is understood from the referee's gestures (ex.hand gestures, stopping the match to review the incident themselves), and/or the VAR usage is confirmed by the match report issued by the official organization. In cases where it is unclear whether the VAR has been used due to missing TV coverage and/or conflicting reports, DraftKings will settle the bets based on the information acquired from feed providers and generally reputable online sources on the basis of equity.

  25. For settlement purposes, markets referring to team to be shown the next Card (booking) and/or “Total Cards” will always consider a Red Card as 2 instances of a card being shown and will be settled accordingly. The following examples are being listed as a guideline:
    • First card shown in a match is a straight Red Card. The team to which the card is awarded will be settled as the winning selection for the offers: Cards #1 and #2;
    • First card shown in a match is a Yellow Card followed by a straight Red Card to the same player without a second yellow card being shown. The team to which the cards are awarded will be settled as the winning selection for the offers: Cards #1, #2 and #3;
    • First card shown in a match is a Yellow Card followed by a second Yellow Card with the subsequent Red Card to the same player. The team to which the cards are awarded will be settled as the winning selection for the offers: Cards #1, #2 and #3.
  26. Markets referring to which specific player will be the next to be booked/receive a card are to be understood and settled as per the order of the instance in which each single player gets booked/sent off by the referee. The card colour shown by the referee will not be given any consideration in the settlement of this offer and the decisive criteria will always be the order in which the single player is considered to have gone into the referee’s book. For settlement purposes it is possible for a single player to be listed twice as the “Next Carded player” as much as both bookings occur during different interruptions of play. Should 2 or more players be booked during the same interruption of play, bets on this offer will be settled as void.
  27. Any reference to “Free Kicks” both when presented as a single outcome, as well as an occurrence will also take into consideration instances awarded for offsides and any other violation except those sanctioned with a penalty.
  28. Mythical Matches refer to imaginary games pairing two teams in a round of fixtures (ie a matchweek) for betting purposes only. The team scoring the most goals in their actual match is deemed the winner. Bets will be settled as a draw if both teams score the same number of goals. Where a match involving one of the teams is postponed or abandoned, bets will be null and void.
  29. Asian Handicaps settle as such:
