5.1 Bet.co.za will not be liable for any errors in respect of bets or wagers including where: (i) Bet.co.za has incorrectly stated the relevant odds/spreads/handicap/totals; (ii) Bet.co.za continues to accept bets or wagers on closed or suspended markets; (iii) Bet.co.za incorrectly calculates or pays a settlement amount; or (iv) any error occurs in a random number generator or pay tables included, incorporated or used in any game or product.
5.2 Incorrect Price - Prior to the start of an event, In-Play or after the event, where an Obvious Error is identified any open bets will stand and be settled at the Bet.co.za revised price. Where a revised price is deemed less than 1/1000 then bets will be void.
Where there is sufficient time before the start of an event, Bet.co.za will endeavour to contact the customer and may in our absolute discretion allow the option of cancelling the bet.
5.3 Incorrect Count/Line/Spread/Handicap/Total - Prior to the start of an event, In-Play or after the event, where an Obvious Error is identified any open bets will stand and be settled at the count, line, spread, handicap or total taken at the Bet.co.za revised price except for the following situations:
i) Where a revised price is deemed less than 1/1000 then bets will be void.
ii) Any bet placed on a count, line, spread, handicap or total where the outcome is already known when the bet was placed will be void.
5.4 Where there is sufficient time before the start of an event, Bet.co.za will endeavour to contact the customer and may in our absolute discretion allow the option of cancelling the bet.
5.5 Incorrect Fixture - Where the wrong player or team is quoted within a fixture name all bets will be void. Such determination to be in Bet.co.za’s absolute discretion.
5.2 Wrong Participant - If a wrong participant is quoted for any match or event, bets placed on that participant will be void; other participants may also be void. Such determination to be in Bet.co.za’s absolute discretion.
5.7 Late Bets - If for any reason a pre-event bet is inadvertently accepted after a match or event has commenced, bets will be settled as follows:
i) If the event and market is covered In-Play then bets will stand at the revised price at the time the bet was placed (where a revised price is deemed less than 1/1000 then bets will be void), unless the outcome is already known in which case such bets will be void.
ii) If the event or market is not covered In-Play then the bet will stand as long as the selected participant or team has not gained a material advantage (e.g. a score, sending off for the other team etc). Where a material advantage has been gained Bet.co.za reserve the right to void the bet, win or lose. Any bet placed where the outcome is already known, including In-Play, will be made void.
5.8 Palpable error - Bet.co.za can cancel (void) your bet, claiming it was a palpable error (commonly known as a “palp“). This can occur when our feeds/traders have made “an obvious mistake”, such as reversed the odds of a match or some other kind of accidental error made while quoting the odds.
5.9 Obvious Error - Maximum Winnings - The maximum amount which can be won for a bet placed where there is an Obvious Error and a revised price is R10,000, unless the expected winning amount of the original bet was greater than R10,000. In such circumstances, the winning amount of the bet placed at the revised price will equal that of the original bet with any excess stake becoming void.
