For live betting based on full game outcomes, for a bet to have action two things must occur:
- A winner must be determined, and
- The game/match must meet a required minimum length (based on sport):
- Football: 59 minutes of game time must be played.
- Baseball: 9 full innings must be played (8 ½ if the home team is ahead).
- Basketball: NBA games must play 46 minutes. All other leagues must play 38 minutes.
- Hockey: 59 minutes of game time must be played. All overtimes and shootouts count.
- Soccer: The full 90 minutes of regulation time must be played.
- Golf: Any wager with only 2 betting options where both options are golfers (i.e., head to head matchups) requires both golfers to complete the round and/or tournament for action. Missing the cut is regarded as completing the tournament. All other propositions are 'all-in betting' and will have action as long as the tournament or event has a winner, regardless of whether or not any or all golfers complete play.
- Tennis: Game and set betting require only the game or set in question to be completed for action. Full match props require full match completion for action. Any player withdrawal due to injury, disqualification, or other reason will result in all full match props being canceled.
*For any sports not listed here, general pre-game rules apply.
These rules apply to all full-game bets (spread, total, money line) and prop bets that can only be settled once the event is finished (for example a wager on which team will score last).
For live betting propositions, bets which are not dependent on the event to be final (for example, a next play wager in baseball) the bet is settled as soon as the outcome has been determined.
