22. Ice Hockey rules

Smarkets general betting rules (1-12) will apply unless superseded by the Terms and Conditions or sports specific betting rules.

22.1   General

22.1   Bets placed on “Regular Time” markets will be settled according to the score at the end of regular time, excluding overtime. Any points scored during overtime or shootouts are not included.

22.2   Bets placed on winner markets will be settled at the end of the game including regular time, overtime and any shootouts played.

22.3   Handicap and totals markets for NHL will be settled on the result after overtime and any shootouts played unless explicitly stated otherwise. A shoot-out victory will be counted as one goal for the winning team. Other handicap or totals markets on matches in other competitions will be settled based on the result at the end of regular time, excluding overtime and shootouts unless explicitly stated otherwise.

22.4   If a match does not begin at the scheduled time and is not played within 36 hours of the original scheduled start time, all bets are voided.

22.5   If a match begins and is abandoned or postponed before completion, all bets are voided unless one of the following occurs within 36 hours of the start date:

  • a minimum of 55 minutes of play has elapsed or an official result has been declared.

If scores are tied and no market is offered for ties (such as winner markets) then dead heat rules will be applied to bets on the winner market.
