When you bet on sports, it’s important to know the rules and regulations. This helps ensure you’re betting responsibly and avoiding any potential pitfalls that could lead to a loss of money or your account. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
The first is to always bet within your bankroll. It’s recommended to risk only 1% to 5% of your total bankroll on each play. This way, if you lose, your bankroll will remain intact for the next play. Additionally, it’s a good idea to stick with the same bet size on every play. Changing your bet amount can lead to large losses or wins, so it’s important to stick with one consistent amount.
In baseball, players, umpires, and club or league officials are prohibited from placing a bet on a game in which they are involved. Anyone found in violation of this rule will be permanently banned from the sport.
For ice hockey, bets are settled based on the outcome outlined by the league or competition’s governing body. Games that are canceled or postponed will be played within 24 hours, otherwise all wagers will be deemed void and stakes returned.
In a market that includes the option to bet on a team’s total points, the team must pass or run the ball in order to settle the market. However, incomplete passes or sacks won’t count toward the market’s settlement. Also, own goals won’t be counted as part of a team’s total points.
