Series betting
Bets are void if the statutory number of games (according to the respective governing organisations) are not completed or changed.

Teasers
In the case of any of the selections resulting in a tie the selection will be treated as a Push and the teaser will reduce to a parlay on all the remaining selections, i.e. a 6 team teaser with 1 tie will revert to a 5 team teaser on the 5 remaining selections, a 4 team teaser with 1 tie will revert to a 3 team teaser on the remaining 3 selections, in all cases at the odds taken at the time the wager was placed. Where a ‘Push’’ results in a teaser being reduced to one selection, the teaser will be treated as a single and paid out at the appropriate odds.
