3.26 Selection and Bet Results
3.26.1 All AFL SGM selections must win (no ties, draws or pushes) for a bet to be deemed a winner. A selection that does not win, unless explicitly specified within this document, will be settled as a loser. If one or more selections in any bet are resulted as void for any reason (such as a selected player not participating in the match – see section 4 Player Specific Markets), the entire bet will be resulted as void.
3.26.2 For instance, selections on a team to win a match where the game finishes in a draw, whether the final result has been determined with or without extra time, and even where the draw or tie may not have been offered in Dabble’s SGM product, will be settled as losers. Similarly, ‘Race to X’ selections where neither team reaches the selected score will be settled as losers, regardless of whether a ‘neither team to reach X’ selection was available as an alternate selection or not. If a quarter or half finishes scoreless, then goal or point-scoring selections such as First or Last Goalscorer for that period will be settled as losers.
3.27 Extra Time
3.27.1 All AFL matches will be settled on the official declared result including any extra time.
3.28 Second Half / Fourth Quarter Markets
3.28.1 All second half and fourth quarter market selections do include extra time if it occurs. For example, a total second half points selection would include the points scored in both the second half and extra time.
3.29 Player Specific Markets
3.29.1 All player selections will be considered active if a player takes to the field of play as an active player at any point of the relevant match, regardless of whether the selection in question references a specific period of the match. If a player never enters the field of play during a match, selections specific to that player will be void. For instance, a selection on a certain player to kick a goal in the second half would be active (and therefore settled as a loser) if that player played the first two minutes of a match, was injured, and did not return to the game, regardless of having never been on the field during the second half. However, if that player was injured in the warmup before the game commenced, was withdrawn from the starting line-up (or interchange/emergencies) and never took the field, the selection and therefore bet would be void.
3.30 Postponed and Incomplete Matches
3.30.1 Where a match is postponed or incomplete, and subsequently resumed or played within 24 hours (inclusive) of the original scheduled start time, all bets will stand. All bets placed on games played which commence more than 24 hours past the originally scheduled start time will be void. Once the 24 hours have expired, all bets are void and stakes will be refunded.
3.31 Abandoned Matches
3.31.1 If a game is abandoned prior to commencement, it falls within the 24-hour rule for postponed matches as described above. If it is abandoned after commencing but before its natural end point, the following rules apply.
3.31.2 SGMs will be void if they include at least one selection involving a player who has not yet entered the field of play. The rules outlined below are all applied subject to and subsequent to the application of this rule.
3.31.3 If every selection within an SGM on the game is already a winner where the fact of abandonment had no impact on the outcome of each selection, the SGM in its entirety will be treated as a winner. For example, a 2-leg SGM containing an over total points selection and a certain player to kick a goal, in a game where the required points have been reached and the player did kick a goal before the game was subsequently abandoned, will be treated as a winner. In this case, the abandonment had no impact on either selection. The same would not apply to an under total points selection where a game is abandoned while the total score is still under the chosen number, as the abandonment would impact that outcome.
3.31.4 If a single selection of an SGM has lost and a match is then abandoned, the SGM will be treated as a loser, where regardless of the fact of abandonment, the selection(s) in question had been irrevocably concluded. For example, an SGM including a first goal-scorer selection, in a game where a different player kicked the first goal and the match was subsequently then abandoned, will be treated as a loser. In this case, the bet had already lost, and this outcome could not be affected in any way by whether the game was subsequently abandoned or not.
3.31.5 If there are no losing selections within an SGM and at least one void selection at the time of a match abandonment, the SGM will be treated as void. This rule applies where one or more selections are still undecided at abandonment, and may have won or lost if the game had been completed as scheduled. For example, an SGM including an over total points selection, in a game abandoned while the total points are still below the required amount, will be treated as void. In this case, the total points selection was still undecided and may have won or lost but for the abandonment, so the bet will be voided.
3.32 Venue Change
3.32.1 If the venue of a match is changed from the one advertised, all bets on that match will be voided.
