The placing of bets by or on behalf of bookmakers or other betting agents not expressly authorised is not permitted. Persons who are directly or indirectly involved in a sporting event (such as participating sportspeople, trainers, officials) are further not permitted to place bets on such a sporting event either themselves or via third parties. In the event of a breach of the above ban, we reserve the right upon obtaining knowledge of such a breach to cancel all bets affected and to refuse payment of any winnings achieved or else to require repayment of such winnings by you if already paid out.
The maximum bet per selection is determined exclusively by Virtual Global Entertainment Limited (VGE) and is detailed on screen. The maximum prize per day (day of placing the bet) is limited to Ghc 120.000. The maximum prize per week (week of placing the bet; Monday 00:00 h – Sunday 24:00 h) is limited to Ghc200.000. If a customer places same bets and the prizes exceed the maximum bet limit or the maximum prize limit, VGE is entitled to reduce the prize according to the limits.
Bets may be placed up to the actual start time of the particular event unless specified otherwise in these terms.
Except as provided, bets may not be cancelled/changed by the client once they have been accepted by VGE.
All winnings will be credited to the player account.
VGE cannot allow for mistakes nor accept responsibility for any errors or omissions in respect of the posting of prices, runners, times or results despite our every effort to ensure total accuracy. VGE reserves the right to correct obvious errors (for example voiding bets struck after an event is underway or based on incorrect odds). If an incorrect participant is quoted for any match, all bets placed on that match will be void, win or lose.
Multiple bets which combine different selections are not accepted where the outcome of one affects or is affected by the other. For example, you cannot bet a Ghc10 double on Nadal to win his semi final match at Wimbledon, with Nadal to win Wimbledon outright. Where there is evidence of price, race, match or event rigging, we reserve the right to make bets void or withhold settlement of bets pending the outcome of any subsequent investigation.
All results will be as published and confirmed by the governing body of the tournament.
The result of a sporting event is evaluated after the end of the normal playing time not including extra time, penalty shoot-out or similar unless provisions to the contrary are explicitly contained within the present General Terms and Conditions. Once a result has been established, all bets are decided and will be evaluated accordingly. Subsequent alterations to a result, such as following administrative or disciplinary actions taken by the associations responsible, do not have any influence on the evaluation of bets.
If a venue is changed, bets will stand unless the game is to be played at the original away team’s ground – in this case all bets will be void.
When a dead heat occurs for first place, the stake money on the winning selection will be divided by the number of winners and full odds paid on the reduced stake, the remaining stake money is lost.
Unless otherwise stipulated in these terms, bets will stand whether or not the selection takes part in the event, unless the event itself does not take place in which case all bets will be void. Similarly if there is no further play after a bet is struck once an event is underway (e.g. after the first round of a golf tournament) that bet will be void.
It is the client’s responsibility to ensure that he/she is aware of the rules relating to a bet as bets cannot be cancelled by the client, except in exceptional circumstances or as otherwise stipulated in our rules, once they are placed.
For all sports, the following applies, unless otherwise stated in these terms, from now on referred to as “the 48 hour rule”: In the case of an event being abandoned before it has been completed, the odds offered for that game will be replaced by 1.00 if not continued within 48 hours of the original start time of the event. Markets that can be settled will be settled e.g. first half markets can be settled if the match is abandoned in the 2nd half, etc. For baseball - the odds offered will be replaced by 1.00 if not continued within 12 hours of the original start time of the event. For tennis the bets stand until the match is played, even if postponed longer than 48 hours, unless the match is permanently cancelled.
Head to head betting: If either or both competitors in a Head to Head bet do not start then all bets are void and all stakes are refunded. If a competitor involved in a Head to Head bet starts a competition but is forced to withdraw after starting, then the 3 other competitor will be considered to have won the Head to Head. In this case all bets on the competitor that has withdrawn are losing bets and all bets on the competitor that remains in the competition are winning bets. If neither competitor completes the event, then Head to Head bets are void and all stakes are refunded.
Should any eventuality occur not covered by these rules we will look for suitable parallels within our rules, or failing that general industry rules, before deciding how to settle the bets.
If any sums are mistakenly credited to your player account, through either an error on the part of the VGE or yourself, it shall be up to you to point this out. Failure to do so will void any subsequent wins caused by this error, either directly or indirectly. In such an event VGE reserves the right to take the necessary action to ensure that both parties are returned to the same position financially as that held immediately prior to the error being made.
The current balance and transaction history of your player account may be viewed at any time. Should there be any claim or dispute arising from a past or current transaction, please contact us. If we are unable to settle the dispute we will refer the dispute to an arbiter, or appropriate Gaming Commission, whose decision will be final subject to full representation given to all parties involved.
Football bets apply to full 90 minute games only, including injury time, but excluding extra time / golden goal. This does not apply to markets which clearly state “To Lift The Trophy” or “Outright Winner” whereby Extra Time and Penalties will be included for settling purposes.
For first or last goal scorer and player to score markets, own goals do not count.
All bets taken on 'first goal scorer' will be void if the player does not take part in the game or comes on after a goal has already been scored. Bets taken on 'last goal scorer' will only be void if the player does not appear on the field at any stage of the match.
For the "player to score" and "player not to score" markets, if a quoted player has scored before the abandonment of the match, the markets relating to that player will be settled accordingly. If a quoted player has not scored, then all bets relating to that player will be void unless the player has already been substituted, in which case the player will be deemed to have failed to score and the market settled accordingly.
Where a venue is changed bets will stand unless the game is to be played at the original away team's ground, in which case all bets will be void.
Bets on 'numbers of corners' refers to corners taken rather than corners awarded. For example, if a corner is awarded at the end of the match but the final whistle blows before it is taken, it does not count as a corner for betting purposes. Settlement will be based on the make-up returned by the SBA (Spread Betting Association).
Total yellow cards are based on regulation time only. A player sent off for 2 yellow cards counts as 1 yellow and 1 red in this market. A player has to be active on the field of play to receive a card. Settlement will be based on the make-up returned by the SBA (Spread Betting Association).
Bets taken on ‘tournament top goal scorer', ‘golden boot’ or similar, will be settled on the official result as published by the governing body of the tournament unless stipulated differently in the market text.
The shirt numbers market is the aggregate total of the shirt number of the scorer of each goal. Own goals count.
A score cast is a bet on the correct score/ first goal scorer double. If the first goal scorer selection does not play the bet becomes a correct score single.
For the player to score market a player taking part at any point of the match is deemed to have played for settling purposes. Own goals do not count.
For goal scorer match bets, both players must start for bets to stand. Own goals do not count.
For “first goal method” or “next goal method” market a "shot" is considered to be an effort on goal propelled by a body part below the waist; a "header", an effort on goal propelled by a body part above the waist. Only one outcome will be settled as a winner – thus, if the goal is a penalty, then “penalty” will be settled as a winner while “shot from inside the penalty box” will be settled as a loser. Similarly, if the goal is scored directly from a free-kick, “direct from free-kick or corner” will be settled as a winner while “shot from outside the penalty box” will be settled as a loser.
A Wincast is a bet on the team to win and player to score anytime. Player must start otherwise all bets are void.
In a fantasy league, two teams compete virtually only. The winner of this fantasy match-up is the team that scores the most goals on the current match day against a real opponent. Beware: Only goals are counted. Victory or loss is not relevant. Example: Chelsea plays Manchester City, Arsenal plays West Ham. The fantasy match is Chelsea vs. Arsenal. If Chelsea wins 1:0 against Manchester City, while Arsenal loses 2:3 to West Ham, the fantasy match would go Arsenal's way with 2:1.
The nominated matches must be played on the scheduled dates for bets to stand. If one or both matches are not played on the scheduled date and played in full for the stipulated time, all bets on the fantasy match-ups will be void, unless the market can be unconditionally determined. E.g. the 1X2 market can be unconditionally determined if a team in an abandoned match has already scored 2 goals and a team in a completed match only scored 1 goal.
Overtime counts for all bets except for bets on Half Time/Full Time or unless otherwise specified.
If a team is designated to play at home and the game is moved to a venue outside of the state where they reside, bets will be made void.
Money Lines: Both teams are priced to win the full game with no handicaps applied. When betting on the money line your team must win the game on the field in order for you to win the bet.
Point Spread: A point spread bet is a bet on a team to win the game with handicaps applied. To even the match for betting purposes, the favourite gives the ‘underdog’ a points start. A favourite is indicated by a minus points handicap and the underdog by plus points. At the end of the match, the relevant handicap is added to, or subtracted from the selected teams’ score to determine the point spread result. Where teams are deemed to be evenly matched, no point spread is applied; this is called a ‘pick’ game. In the event of a tie on the handicap all bets on this market will be made void.
Game Totals: A total line is offered on the predicted total number of points scored. Prices are offered for the actual score to be over or under this quote. The total result is the combined total points for both teams at the end of the relevant period of play. When the combined scores of both team’s equals the totals line exactly then the result is a ‘push’.
Highest scoring quarter: For the purposes of highest scoring quarter betting, overtime does not count as part of the fourth quarter.
First Touchdown: Bets on players to score the first touchdown will only be considered void (non runners) where the player was not in uniform for the match.
