Tele-Betting General Rules

These rules are a guide and reference to the terms by which we do business. Whilst they cover the vast majority of transactions there may be occasions when an occurrence is not covered by our rules. In these rare instances we will seek to settle in an equitable and fair manner. However, in the case that our settlement is disputed we will refer the matter to an independent arbiter and abide by their ruling. Disputes, which cannot be resolved mutually, are referred to the Independent Betting Arbitration Service (IBAS) whose address for correspondence is: –

We cannot allow for mistakes, nor be responsible for any errors or omissions, in respect of the posting of prices, runners, times or results – despite every effort to ensure total accuracy. We reserve the right to refuse the whole or part of any bet, and to make ambiguous bets Void.

Clients are deemed to have read and accepted the rules by opening an account. Any update or amendment to our rules will be displayed on our web site. It is the account holder’s responsibility to be fully aware of all these rules prior to placing a wager.

Where contact with our offices is made by telephone, we record all conversations for security purposes. These recordings are the property of Joe Jennings Tele-Bet and are not made available to any third party except any arbitration service to which we subscribe.

Joe Jennings Tele-Bet reserves the right to refuse the whole or any part of any bet request for any reason. We also reserve the right to close any account without obligation to state a reason. Joe Jennings Tele-Bet reserves the right to void any transactions where individuals are suspected of acting in conspiracy or concert.

You must be at least 18 years of age in order to obtain and use a telephone betting account.

No Duplicate accounts are allowed – one account per customer. If we have reason to believe that a customer has more than one account we will treat those accounts as one single joint account. Accounts opened using the same name, address or debit/credit card details to benefit from offers or promotions are not allowed. If we have sufficient evidence or reason to believe that this is the case we reserve the right to withdraw any offers to any customer and to ignore the bonus or offer for settlement purposes.

Minimum Stakes: Please note that for telephone betting there is a minimum stake per call of £25 (or currency equivalent).

Account types

TOP UP MANUAL

All telephone accounts default to Top Up Manual accounts. There is no need to leave a deposit. If you have no balance when you wish to place a bet, the payment will be taken from your card at the time of acceptance.

Winnings are credited to your balance so that you can place further bets with them.
You can request to withdraw some or all of your balance at any time by contacting one of our traders.
You do not have to leave a deposit for your account to remain open.

CREDIT

To open a credit account please contact one of our traders who will deal with your request.

Delay in bank authorisation

Occasionally there is a delay in the banks authorisation and a decision will be made by us to either accept or decline the bet.
If we tell you that ‘your bet is on’ then the bet will stand regardless of whether the funds are authorised later or not.
We reserve the right to make further attempts to transact the stake if the bet is a loser or to withhold winnings until the stake is transacted if it is a winning bet.

Occasionally, you may be told that your bet is on ‘subject to authorisation’. In this case your bet will stand as long as we are able to transact the funds at the earliest opportunity after the bet was placed.
If we are unable to acquire authorisation due to a declined bank referral, we can supply you with a recording of our conversation, which will prove that the transaction has been declined and as such no bet will be recognised.

Conditions of Acceptance

Once accepted a bet can only be cancelled by mutual consent unless a pricing error has occurred. We endeavour to always ensure complete accuracy as regards announcing, publishing and issuing of prices, however should an error occur, we cannot accept responsibility and reserve the right to correct obvious errors or cancel the bet if it is deemed necessary.

Special bets are settled in accordance with the special rules issued for such bets.

Any bet not substantiated by our Recording equipment, or not written to our database, will not be recognized by us.

We cannot guarantee to pay or correct errors if they are brought to our attention more than 90 Days after the official result of the last selection to run on the bet.

Where there is evidence of price or match rigging, we reserve the right to make bets void or withhold payment pending the outcome of any investigation.

Postal and emailed bets are not accepted.

For all Telephone bets, the time at which the bet was recorded on our Recording equipment will govern settlement.

All prices are subject to fluctuation and are available up to the official off time of the event concerned. Where the official ‘off’ is not announced, bets are accepted up to the advertised start time. Any bet that is accepted after the advertised or official start time – other than bets on In-Running markets – will be void.

Except where advertised, multiple bets are not accepted where the outcome of one part of the bet contributes to the outcome of the other. This is known as a Related Contingency, and if taken in error the stakes will be equally divided where the related contingencies clash. Multiple bets that contain the same selection in different events are also not accepted where the outcome of one affects or is affected by the other. In the case of a multiple including selections with related outcomes we reserve the right to Void part of or the whole of the bet.

In the event of a dead heat for first place the stake money on a winning selection is divided by the number of winners in the dead heat and the full odds paid to the reduced stake with the remainder of the stake money being lost. A similar rule applies to place betting where, as the result of a dead heat, more than the required number of selections is placed.

Horse Racing

MAXIMUM PAYOUTS

The following are the limits that can be won by a single client or syndicate in respect of any one day’s business.

Where all the selections are covered by a Full SIS Service (i.e. Shows, Offs and Results):

  1. Horse Racing in the UK and Ireland £50,000
  2. Horse Racing in all other countries £25,000

EACH WAY BETTING

Each Way betting at Starting Prices and Board Prices will be calculated as follows: –

  • Handicaps – 16 or more runners One Quarter the Odds – First Four places.
  • Handicaps – 12 to 15 runners One Quarter the Odds – First Three places.

All Other Races

  • Races of 8 runners or more – One Fifth the Odds – First Three places.
  • Races of 5, 6 or 7 runners – One Quarter the Odds – First Two places.
  • Less than 5 runners – the place money is invested to Win.

In all races the number of runners shall be the number of runners coming under Starters Orders.

Place only bets are not accepted. The only exception to this will be if “Special Place Only Betting “is offered on certain events.

Bets will not be accepted where the Place Stake exceeds the Win Stake.

Each Way Doubles, Trebles and Accumulators will be settled “Win to Win” and “Place to Place” in accordance with the place terms above.

Each Way Single Stakes About bets, the Win part will be settled in its entirety before the Place part is considered.

Each Way All Each Way or Equally Divided bets are accepted but the instruction must be clearly indicated. Settlement will be carried out in time order.

Restarted Races – In the event of a restarted race, the original betting market prior to the false start will govern the settling, unless a new market is formed. Any horses disqualified from restarting will be deemed losers. In the event of any horse or horses being withdrawn before the restart of the race, Tattersall’s Rule 4 (c) will apply to the original betting market. The number of runners taking part in the re-run will determine place terms.

Postponed Races – If a race is postponed to another day, with the exception of Ante Post bets, all selections will be made Void. If races are set back in time because of weather conditions or outside events the settling of bets will be governed by the original advertised times.

Walkovers and Void Horse Races – Walkovers and Void Races count as races but any horse so involved will be treated as a Non-Runner for settling purposes.

Objections and Disqualifications – Objections, disqualifications and amended results subsequent to the “Weighed In” announcement will be disregarded.

Withdrawals other than Ante-Post – Where a horse or horses are withdrawn before coming under Starters Orders, or is officially deemed by the Starter to have taken no part in the race, Stakes will be returned on the withdrawn horse, or horses, and winning bets will be subject to deductions in accordance with Tattersall’s Rule4(c), last revised in January 2011.

The rate of deduction will be based on the following scale.

1/9 or shorter 90p
2/11 to 2/17 85p
1/4 to 1/5 80p
3/10 to 2/7 75p
2/5 to 1/3 70p
8/15 to 4/9 65p
8/13 to 4/7 60p
4/5 to 4/6 55p
20/21 to 5/6 50p
Evens to 6/5 45p
5/4 to 6/4 40p
8/5 to 7/4 35p
9/5 to 9/4 30p
12/5 to 3/1 25p
16/5 to 4/1 20p
9/2 to 11/2 15p
6/1 to 9/1 10p
10/1 to 14/1 05p (1st 5p Waived)
If over 14/1 No Deduction is made.

In the case of two or more horses being withdrawn before coming under starters orders, the total deduction will not exceed 90p in the £.

Should a horse be withdrawn and a new market formed, then any bets laid at “Show” prices prior to the new show will be subject to the above deductions. In the event of a further withdrawal after the market has been re-formed, bets placed at “Show” prices in the original market will be subject to a further deduction based on the price of the withdrawn horse in the original market. Bets placed in the new market will be subject to a deduction based on the current price of the withdrawn horse.

The above scale will also apply in the case of Non-Runners in Early Price Races and will be used for other events where we specifically advertise that deductions in line with Tattersall’s Rule 4(c) will apply.

Double Engagements – Where a selection is doubly engaged and the client requests a specific race time, it will be considered a bet for that race only. If the selection runs in the other race it will be deemed a Non-Runner.

Forecasts – Forecasts are available in races of three or more runners, any inadvertently accepted in races with only two runners will be settled as a Win single on the selection nominated to finish first. Forecasts, forecast doubles and forecast trebles will be settled according to the Computer Straight Forecast and by reference to the NSL Straight Forecast Chart should no CSF be declared.

A forecast that includes a non-runner will become a Win Single on the remaining selection.

Should there be no official SP returns for a race all Forecasts on that event will be Void.

In the event of two or more horses Dead-Heating for first or second place, separate dividends will be declared and paid for each of the qualifying forecasts.

Tricasts – Tricasts, selecting the 1st, 2nd and 3rd in correct order are offered on Handicaps of eight or more declared runners (and occasionally other races as advertised) on the proviso that at least 6 run.

A Tricast containing a non-runner will be settled as a Straight Forecast on the remaining selections in the order written and in the case of two non-runners, will be settled as a win single on the remaining selection.

In the event of no Tricast being declared selections for 1st and 2nd place will be settled as Computer Straight Forecasts in the order written with the third selection disregarded. Tricasts are accepted for singles only. In the event of two or more horses Dead Heating for 1st, 2nd or 3rd place, separate dividends will be declared and paid to each qualifying Tricast.

Favourites – Wagers will be accepted Win only at Starting Price for 1st and 2nd Favourites. In the event of two selections starting Joint Favourites, they are taken as Joint 1st and 2nd Favourites and stakes for either 1st or 2nd Favourite are divided equally. Where three or more selections start Co-Favourites stakes will be divided proportionally.

Should the Favourite or Second Favourite be withdrawn before coming under Starters Orders but too late to form a new market, bets on the Favourite or 2nd Favourite in that particular race are Void. The only exception to this will be as regards Placepots (Please see Tote Section)

NON UK AND IRISH RACING

Bets are accepted for races abroad so long as they are Televised Live or the racecard is published in the Racing Post. In races where an Industry SP is available, all bets will be settled at these prices unless an Early Price or Pari-Mutuel (Tote) is requested. The Industry SP is returned by an Independent SP reporter from odds supplied to SIS by the major bookmakers. Industry SP’s are not subject to any coupling. In the instances where no Industry SP is made available, bets will be settled at Pari-Mutuel (Tote) returns. In Pari-Mutuel (Tote) pools from abroad horses can be coupled, usually when they have the same owner. Generally they are coupled in Win pools only but in some countries they can be coupled in all pools. The place part of each way bets will be settled in accordance to the returned place dividends.

Bets may also be accepted at Show Prices when SIS provides a betting guide. Where horses are coupled the Show Price will cover all the coupled horses.

In the case of US racing, the place part of Each Way bets at Pari-Mutuel (Tote) will be settled by reference to the “Show” Dividend. In races with only Win and Place pools in operation the Place dividend applies for Each Way bets.

Place Only bets are not accepted.

Unnamed Favourites are not accepted in races abroad, unless an official SP is returned.

Forecasts are accepted, settlement being dependent on the type of forecast in operation. Bets are accepted abroad in accordance with our General Rules and any additional rules applicable to the Country concerned.

DAY OF RACE/EARLY PRICES

Prices are on offer daily, subject to fluctuation, up to Thirty Minutes before the first show of course betting broadcast by S.I.S. Bets on Horse Racing laid at prices following the Overnight Declaration stage, or on the day of the race, are subject to Starting Price Rules with the additional stipulation that in the event of a withdrawal, a deduction in line with Tattersall’s Rule 4 (c) based on the current price of the withdrawn horse(s) will apply. Withdrawn horses count as normal Non-Runners. For place purposes, the number of placed runners, as determined by our place betting rules, will be governed by the number of runners coming under starter’s orders and not by the number of runners, when the price was laid.

BOARD PRICES

Board Prices are laid in any race with three or more runners. Should a horse or greyhound be withdrawn no Board Prices will be laid after the time of withdrawal unless the “market” is reformed. Should there be an error subsequently corrected by S.I.S. the bet will stand at the corrected price or S.P, whichever the greater. For place purposes, the number of placed runners, as determined by our place betting rules, will be governed by the number of runners coming under starter’s orders and not by the number of runners, when the price was laid.

Ante-Post – Ante-Post prices are those offered on:

  1. A Horserace prior to 10:30a.m. on the day of the Overnight Declaration Stage.
  2. Bets placed at all other times are settled in accordance with Our Day of Race Rules.
  3. A Greyhound Race prior to the completion of the Semi-Finals of a Competition.
  4. Sporting Events as advertised.

Ante Post bets are accepted on the basis of all in enter or not, run or not i.e. stakes are lost if the selection does not take part, if there was a possibility of it winning at the time the bet was laid.

If a race is postponed to another day and overnight declarations stand, then Ante Post bets stand. However, Single Ante Post bets on horse racing will be made void and any selection involved in accumulative bets will be treated as a non-runner if:

  1. The race is abandoned.
  2. The race is officially declared void.
  3. The conditions of the race are altered after bets are made (as defined under Tattersall’s Rules).
  4. A horse is balloted out under Jockey Club Rules of Racing.
  5. The venue is altered.
  6. The running surface is altered (e.g. Turf to Dirt / All Weather or vice versa).
  7. Where we offered specific place terms such as “with a run” at the time a wager was placed and the Horse or Greyhound is subsequently withdrawn

Ante-post bets are settled at the Price and Place terms applicable at the time of acceptance. Reduced odds may apply in accumulative bets if the same selection is taken to win more than one event. Place only bets, conditional bets and forecast betting are not accepted at Ante-Post odds.

FIRST PAST THE POST CONCESSION

We pay-out on both the First Past the Post result and the Official Result on all win and each way singles and multiples on Horse Racing in the UK and Ireland to a maximum payout value of £500 to any one Client, Subject to the following exceptions where we will pay the official result only

Forecasts, forecast doubles and forecast trebles will be settled according to the Computer Straight Forecast at BAGS/BEGS meetings and by reference to the NSL Straight Forecast chart at other meetings. A forecast that includes a non-runner will become a Win Single on the remaining selection.

Tricasts are accepted for singles only.

Trap Challenge – Which trap will have the most wins? Bets are accepted at selected advertised meetings and at all BAGS/BEGS meetings. To win requires the selection of the trap number to win most races at the nominated meetings. In the event of two or more trap numbers winning the same highest number of races, dead heat rules will apply. In races where the result is a dead heat, each trap number involved will count as a winner. Bets stand irrespective of any non-runners, Void races, or abandoned meetings.

Greyhound Placer – The Placer operates on the first six and last six races at all BAGS/BEGS meetings. To win Greyhound Placer requires the selection of a placed greyhound (as defined by our Each Way terms) in all six races concerned. Bets are accepted for trap numbers or un-named favourites. In the event of a Non Runner where a trap number is nominated the selection is transferred to the reserve in that trap. Should a bet contain a non-runner that is not replaced by a reserve, or a named selection does not run the Favourite will be substituted. Where there are joint favourites, the joint favourite with the lowest trap number will be taken. The Greyhound Placer operates at BAGS/BEGS meetings. If no SP’s are returned in a race it will be deemed Void. Where a void race is re-run it counts as the original race time and selections will stand for the re-run race. Where a void race is not re-run that day the returns will be declared on the remaining races.
