Rivalry Betting Rules

The general settlement rules set out here are subject to modification at any time at our sole discretion.

Final Authority

Rivalry records shall be the final authority in determining the validity and terms of any tickets accepted and the circumstances in which they were made.

Betting Deadlines

Pre-match tickets can be accepted up to the time indicated, which may not correspond to the start time of the event. Rivalry reserves the right to void any ticket placed after the deadline indicated, including owing to content timing errors or revised start times.

If a ticket, for whatever reasons, is accepted after the start of a betting event meaning the ticket is not placed in good faith then Rivalry reserves the right to void. Rivalry will endeavour to inform users of any specific tickets that are voided.

Data Errors

Rivalry reserves the right to refuse to accept any ticket without notification, justification or compensation. Rivalry shall in no way be held liable for typing, transmission, display, publishing, betting information or odds errors. If any pre-match ticket is accepted in error, Rivalry reserves the right to void that bet where there were obvious errors concerning the entry of odds and/or results, e.g. a mistaken inversion of teams, odds, results, etc.

Technical Errors

Rivalry reserves the right to suspend odds during an event due to failed transmission or other technical related issues or if fraud is suspected. Rivalry reserves the right to cancel tickets even subsequently if any such ticket was won by the customer as a result of a technical fault or error, inclusive of but not limited to an error or fault in transmission. In any such case tickets will be voided. Nevertheless, Rivalry reserves the right to hold a customer liable for any damage caused to or suffered by us as a result of such customer knowingly taking advantage of a technical or administrative error when making and/or receiving payments.

General Rules

  1. The listed dates and times of fixtures are purely informational. Rivalry cannot guarantee accuracy. An incorrectly posted date and/or time is not grounds for voiding bets.
  2. If a fixture isn’t completed within 30 hours of its officially planned starting time, then all bets on that fixture will be void. The exceptions to this rule are:
  • Fixtures which in their normal course can take longer than 30 hours, such as Golf tournaments. 
  • Esport/Sport-specific exceptions laid out in the Rules section for each Esport/Sport.
  • Bets on any “First Team to Score” market have action as soon as there is a score, regardless of if the fixture is completed. This includes First blood/First kill, First tower, etc.
  1. The result of a fixture will be the final determination by the fixture’s governing body on the date of the fixture’s completion. Rivalry does not recognise protested or overturned decisions. The result of bets on a fixture suspended after the start of competition will be decided according to the betting rules specified for that Esport/Sport. If nothing is specified in the Esport/Sport’s Rules then General Rule #2 applies. In any case where there is ambiguity regarding the outcome the bookmakers decision will be final.
  2. Unless otherwise specified in a particular Esport/Sport’s rules, all bets on a fixture will be void if the venue is changed.
  3. Bets on a specific map/period count only the scoring in that map/period, and are unaffected by what happens in prior or subsequent maps/periods. If for any reason a fixture is not completed within the time specified in our rules, bets on the full fixture will be void. Any maps/periods that have been fully completed will have action. 
  4. If a “Draw” price is offered in a Money Line market, and the draw happens, then bets on each team lose. If a draw is not offered and a draw happens, then bets on both teams are void. 
  5. In any fixture involving a forfeit, walkover, or any other event where the fixture is considered complete without having been played all bets will be void, regardless of how the governing body of its league scores it. 
  6. If a market includes exactly one or two names of competitors, then all listed competitors must participate in the fixture for the bet to have action.
  7. Misspellings, typographical errors and teams changing names are not grounds for bets to be void as long as it is clear based on the context what the intended fixture was.
  8. If a fixture is offered with an incorrect number of Maps, Rounds or Periods or with a nonstandard duration for the Esport/Sport without it being indicated, all bets on that fixture will be void.
  9. For aggregate Home/Away score markets of a league on a Day (or Week in the case of American Football), if all fixtures on that Day/Week are not played to completion all bets on the market are void.
  10. Multi-way betting is "ALL-IN", meaning bets always have action unless a stipulation is added to the market that a certain competitor must start for action. If such a stipulation is included, then all bets on all competitors will be void if the stipulated competitor does not start in that specific event. 
  11. All winning bets on Multi-Way markets are paid out at full odds, regardless of the number of winners. 
  12. If a market is offered with “The Field” as a betting option, the named team or competitor must beat every other competitor for a bet on that competitor to win. If the listed competitor ties for a win bets on the matchup will be void.
  13. All settled markets are final after 72 hours and no queries will be entertained after that period in time. Within 72 hours after markets are settled, Rivalry will only reset/correct the results due to human error, system error or mistakes made by the referring results source. 
  14. Rivalry reserves the right to void any bet at any time if it deems the bet to have been made in a fraudulent manner. 
  15. All bets will be accepted or rejected purely at Rivalry's discretion. In-play bets may be subject to a delay before they are accepted and/or they will be kept pending during dangerous situations at Rivalry’s discretion.
  16. If there is an obvious error in the odds, limit, or scheduled time of a market, bets on that market may be void.
  17. In case of any contradictions: Market Rules take precedence over Esport/Sport Rules; which take precedence over General Rules. In any case where there is ambiguity regarding the outcome the bookmakers decision will be final.

Esports Rules

  1. If the format of a match is changed (number of Maps, Rounds etc.) all bets will be void unless that information was conveyed in the market or the change had no affect on a particular market (such as bets on specific Maps or First Blood etc.).
  2. If a Map is remade or rewound by Chronobreak or similar method, any markets that have already been determined (such as First Blood, First Tower, First to 10 Kills etc.) will not be changed. Any markets that have not previously been determined will be settled based on the results of the remade or rewound Map.
  3. In a match where one team or competitor has an advantage of one or more maps awarded as part of the tournament format (for example due to one team coming from the upper bracket in a double elimination format), Rivalry’s match line will include the given advantage. If there is a 1-0 advantage, Rivalry’s map offering will start with map 2, if there is a 2-0 advantage, Rivalry’s map offering will start with map 3 etc. If the advantage comes from a walkover/default win that was awarded by admin decision for example due to one team showing up late to their match this does not apply.
  4. “Kill” markets will be resulted using the in-game Scoreboard.
  5. Match-period Handicap, Money Line and Over/Under markets use Maps won as scoring units. 
  6. Any overtime or other tiebreaker method used is considered valid in determining results.
  7. If a Map is void due to retirement, disconnection, disqualification, walkover or other admin decision: all bets on that Match and subsequent Maps will be void. Prior Maps that were played to completion will have action.

  • Competitor Statistics: Includes Overtime but does not include Penalty Shootouts.
  • Regular Season Points: Will be settled when a team exceeds their points total and is expected to play all of their scheduled games or cannot possibly exceed their points total given their number of games remaining and are expected to play all of their scheduled games. If there is any reasonable doubt about whether or not a team will play a complete season, their Season Points won’t be settled until they do. Once Season Points markets have been settled, they will not be changed, even if a team plays fewer games than expected for any reason.

Related Contingencies

A related contingency is a parlay bet where the outcome of one selection can contribute to the outcome of another selection, e.g. a two outcome parlay containing EnVy Us to win the Dreamhack Winter Semi-Final combined with EnVy Us to win the Dreamhack Winter tournament outright.

Rivalry reserves the right to determine which bets have related contingency.

Rivalry does not accept parlay tickets which have related contingency and reserves the right to void, at its discretion, any parlay tickets placed on related contingencies. Bet combinations with related contingencies will be automatically blocked and unavailable to place in a parlay during regular bet placement. In instances where a ticket containing related contingencies has been accepted in error Rivalry will completely void the ticket and return the stake.

In certain instances, Rivalry will make available combinations of related contingencies for customers to place bets on, e.g. Faker to win Worlds MVP and SK Telecom T1 to win the World Championship.
