Hard Rock Bet House Rules: Sports Betting

Part A. General Sportsbook Rules

The sports wagering rules (these “Rules”) set out herein are subject to modification at any time at the sole discretion of Hard Rock Bet, subject to regulatory approval of the Indiana Gaming Commission (“Commission”). These are general grading rules and any exceptions or variations to these rules for certain sports will be stated under the specific sports rules. The patron should therefore always consult the sport-specific rules for each sport as the sport-specific rules will take precedence over the General Rules. Where any matter is not covered by these Rules, Hard Rock Bet reserves the right to decide on a case-by-case basis.

1.13 Hard Rock Bet account holders are encouraged to contact Customer Service (email: [email protected]) for additional wagering information, questions, and complaints of any such nature.

If escalating a query to our Customer Service team does not resolve any issue relating to a betting transaction to your satisfaction, you have the right to file a written complaint using the Patron Complaint Form provided on the Commission website: https://www.in.gov/igc/files/Sports-Wagering-FAQs.pdf

1.14 Cancelled selections will result in straight wagers being refunded unless an outcome for a specific market has been determined. Parlays that involve a cancelled selection will stand as a parlay on the remaining selections, or as a single in the case where one selection in a two-selection parlay is cancelled.

1.15 The structuring of bets to avoid federal currency transactional reporting thresholds is prohibited.

1.16 Wagers are subject to Hard Rock Bet’s Title 31 Bank Secrecy Act -Anti-Money Laundering program, including triggers and requirements for filing of Currency Transaction Reports and Suspicious Activity Reports.

1.17 A patron’s account for sports wagering may be funded through the use of: (1) a patron’s credit or debit card; (2) a patron’s deposit of cash or vouchers at a cashiering location approved by the Commission; (3) a patron’s reloadable prepaid card, which has been verified as being issued to the patron and is nontransferable; (4) promotional credit; (5) winnings; (6) adjustments made by Hard Rock Bet with documented notification to the patron; (7) an ACH transfer; (8) a wire transfer; or (9) any other means approved by the Commission.

1.18 Winning wagers are calculated by the Sports Wagering System and are paid to the player wallet system in near real time as the bets are settled. Players can choose their preferred method of payout calculation using the player’s account preferences by choosing American Odds, Decimal Odds, or Fractional Odds.

American Odds

Odds with a negative prefix such as ‘-110’ inform the customer how much money they need to wager to win $100. In this example if the customer places a wager for $110 which wins at odds of -110, the Sports Wagering System will pay $210 to the player wallet, $100 of winnings plus their returned wager amount of $110.

Odds with a positive prefix such as ‘+300’ inform the customer how much money they will win if they wager $100. In this example if the customer places a wager for $100 which wins at odds of +300, the Sports Wagering System will pay $400 to the player wallet, $300 of winnings plus their returned wager amount of $100.

Decimal Odds

The player’s wager amount is multiplied by the decimal odds to calculate the total amount paid to the player for winning bets. If the odds are 2.50, then a player who places a winning bet for a $100 wager will receive $250 into their player wallet – inclusive of their $100 wager plus $150 winnings.

Fractional Odds

The player’s wager amount is multiplied by the numerator divided by the denominator of the fractional odds to calculate the player winnings. If the odds of a winning $100 wager are 5/2 we pay 2.5 times the wager amount as winnings ($250) and return the original wager amount for a total payout to the player wallet of $350.

Section 2. Confirmation of a Bet

2.1 A bet is not placed until it is confirmed and shown in “My Bets”.

2.2 Hard Rock Bet is not responsible for missing or duplicate bets made by the patron.

2.3 In case a bet is accepted by technical error, when there are not enough funds in patron’s accounts or Hard Rock Bet has not received the full payment, the bet will be cancelled.

2.4 Hard Rock Bet’s Sports Betting System maintains a detailed record of all wagering transactions. In the event of a dispute about the acceptance or the lack of any wagering transaction, the Sports Betting System transaction logs will be the ultimate authority in decision making.

Section 3. Grading of Bets

3.1 Hard Rock Bet reserves the right to remove or suspend a market/event at any given time. While a market is suspended, it will be unavailable for betting and cash out.

3.2 Potential payout on the bet slip is for information only. Potential payouts are reduced every time one of the selections is deemed cancelled or pushed.

3.3 Payouts from graded bets are added to the patron’s balance.

3.4 Hard Rock Bet reserves the right to withhold payment or cancel the bets for any event if there are concerns about the event’s integrity, in part or in its entirety.

3.5 Hard Rock Bet reserves the right to withhold payment of bets or cancel bets where it believes there has been syndicated or coordinated betting activity.

3.6 Hard Rock Bet may cancel bets when there is an obvious error.

Obvious errors are mistakes in posting of lines, odds, or other, caused by human or system error, which significantly differ from the general market or are clearly erroneous. Examples below:

3.6.1 There is reason to believe bets have been placed after an outcome is already known or after the backed selection has gained an advantage.

  1. Bets are confirmed with incorrect prices due to delayed or failing live coverage or latent data feed.
  1. Bets are accepted where prices or line/spread/total/handicap is an obvious error.
  1. Bets are placed after a public announcement has occurred in relation to the bet which significantly affects the odds.
  1. The wrong participant is quoted for any match or event. Bets placed on that participant will be cancelled. Hard Rock Bet reserves the right to cancel bets on other affected outcomes.
  1. There is a change in scheduled location for a game or series of games.
  1. An event does not follow the sport’s generally accepted format and rules (e.g., unusual period length or game duration, points counting procedure, format of a match/game, less than the maximum allowed players, distance of a race, amounts of periods etc.).
  1. Bets are placed while our systems experienced technical problems, which otherwise would not have been accepted.
  1. The outcome of a market cannot be verified.
  1. Odds have been offered and bets accepted due to an error (“Error” is a mistake, misprint, misinterpretation, mishearing, misreading, mistranslation, spelling mistake, technical hazard, registration Error, transaction Error, manifest Error, force majeure, and/or similar.)

3.7 Hard Rock Bet will message patrons when wagers are cancelled due to obvious error. This notification will clearly convey the reason for cancellation to the patron.

3.8 Hard Rock Bet reserves the right to delay the grading of an outcome or an event until an official confirmation is published.

3.9 In case of an incorrect grading of markets, Hard Rock Bet reserves the right to correct them anytime.

3.10 Hard Rock Bet reserves the right to reverse cash outs and adjust the account balance if a bet has been cashed out that would have been cancelled or had its payout adjusted pursuant to the terms of subsection 3.6 of this section.

3.11 Results are taken from those published by the official governing body or by Hard Rock Bet providers. Hard Rock Bet recognizes those results achieved on the field. Results awarded by a sport federation without action and results decided by the outcome of disciplinary measures from the sport federation or another court of law over 24 hours after an event has finished are not considered.

Section 4. Dead-Heat Rule

4.1 If participants finishing positions cannot be separated in an event, then the Dead-Heat Rule will apply.

4.2 Hard Rock Bet handles Dead-Heats by dividing the stake by the number of tied participants.

4.3 When calculating how many places are paid, Hard Rock Bet counts as many selections as there are places, unless there is a Dead-Heat for the last available place. So, if three places are offered and two selections Dead-Heat for first, the next-finishing selection takes third place. However, if there are three places and three selections dead-heat for third, Hard Rock Bet pays out on all five selections finishing in the top three places with those dead-heating for third having their stake divided by three.

Section 5. Maximum Winnings

Maximum winnings are classified in the table below:

Offering Maximum Winnings
NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL- Moneyline, Main Spread, Main Total $1 Million
NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL- Other markets excluding player props $500,000
NCAAF, NCAAB- Moneyline, Main Spread, Main Total $500,000
PGA, Tennis, Soccer $250,000
Other sports and markets including permissible player props $100,000
Section 6. Related Contingencies

A related contingency occurs when part of a transaction affects the outcome of the remainder of the bet. Outside our specific product features which are purposed to facilitate parlays within the same event, our system will block related contingency bets when bet placement is attempted. However, if any such bet is accepted in error, the stake will be equally distributed across the related selections as singles.

Section 7. Cash Outs

7.1 Hard Rock Bet reserves the right to amend, suspend or remove Cash Out availability at any time on any market or to any patron.

7.2 In the event of an error in the odds, the affected selection/s may not be Cashed Out. If Cash Out has been accepted in error, then the patron account balance will be adjusted to rectify the error.

7.3 If further attempts are made to place bets or cash out on markets that are affected by an error before the error is corrected, then Cashed Out amount and the stakes will be cancelled.

Part B. Main Markets Rules

Hard Rock Bet shall only accept wagers on events approved by the Commission. See below types of wagers accepted and rules:

*All listed markets may not be available in Indiana

Section 1. Winner Markets

Predict the winner of the game/period/half/quarter/stated time range. If the market contains a Tie selection, then that will be graded as the winner in the event of a tied game/period/half/quarter/stated time range. Where a market does not have a Tie selection, bets will be pushed or dead heat.

Check individual sports for overtime rules

Section 2. Spread / Handicap Markets

Predict the winner of the game/period/half/quarter/stated time range, applying the given spread (handicap). In handicap betting, a team is awarded a “virtual” goal/points/set/games advantage. This advantage will be added to the official scores for grading purposes.

Check individual sports for overtime rules

Section 3. Total (Over/Under)

If a game is abandoned, bets will be cancelled unless grading is already determined.

Example 1:

Team A vs Team B, Basketball. Event Total points, Over/Under on 203.5 points. Customer places a bet on over 203.5 points. Customer’s bet will win only when the total points score by both teams aggregated is more than 203.5 points.

Example 2:

Player A vs Player B, Tennis. Customer bets on 1st set, total games over 10.5. Customer’s bet will win if first set finished with at least 11 games played, otherwise bet is lost.

Example 3:

Team A vs Team B, Soccer. Customer bets on total goals for Team A under 2.5. Customer’s bet will win if Team A scores 2 goals or less, otherwise bet is lost.

Example 4:

In a 3-way total, the line is set so that there is also a third outcome (equal or exact).


Team A vs Team B, Ice Hockey. Event Total has 3 outcomes: over 5 goals, under 5 goals or equal to 5 goals. There is no push outcome in this type of market, all bets either win or lose.

Section 4. Double Chance

A Double Chance market allows you to cover two of the three possible outcomes in a game with one bet. Double chance markets do not include overtime. The following options are available:

Home or Tie – if the result is either a Home win or a Tie, then bets on this option are winners.


Tie or Away – if the result is either a Tie or an Away win, then bets on this option are winners.


Home or Away – if the result is either a Home win or an Away win, then bets on this option are winners.

Section 5. Winning Margin

Predict the team to win the game and the margin of victory.

Example 1: Football, Team A vs Team B. If the customer believes that it will be a close game, but Team A will win, the customer can select Team A to win by 1-6-point Margin. By this, the customer’s bet wins if Team A win by 1 up to 6 points. If Team A wins by 7 points or more, the customer’s bet will lose.

Example 2: Basketball, Team A vs Team B. If the customer believes that Team A will easily win, the customer is able to place a bet on Team A to win by 21 or more points. Bet will win only if Team A wins by 21+ points difference.

 

Section 6. Half-time/Full-Time

Predict the result of a game at halftime and at the end of regular time. In baseball, half time is defined as the first 5 innings of a game. The possible outcomes of this market are the following (Half Time result / Full Time result):

Home Team / Home Team

Home Team / Tie

Home Team / Away Team

Tie / Home Team

Tie / Tie

Tie / Away Team

Away Team / Away Team

Away Team / Tie

Away Team / Home Team

Example 1:

In a soccer event Team A vs Team B, the customer chooses Home / Tie. The customer’s bet will win if home team leads in the first half and the game ends in a tie. Extra time and penalty shootouts do not count.

Section 7. Race to X

Predict which team will be the first to score X points in the game. Race market may also refer to Runs (Baseball), Corners (Soccer), Games (Tennis), Goals (Hockey), Points (Volleyball) etc.

Race to X can be offered for the entire game or any stated period. For instance, in a volleyball game ‘1st set race to X points’ or in a basketball game ‘1st quarter race to 15 points’. In 2-way market, selections are home and away team (or Player 1, Player 2). If a game ends before any team reaches the specific number of points, the market is considered cancelled, and stakes are refunded. In a 3-way market in addition to home and away there is the ‘none’ option, and if neither team reaches the total then the ‘None/Neither’ selection will be graded as the winner.

To Score Point X

Predict which team will score the X point of the game. For example, in a basketball game if Team A has scored 24 points and Team B has scored 25 points, there is a current total of 49 points. The market ‘To Score Point 50’ will be won by the team that scores the next point, the point which takes the game total to 50.

Section 8. Highest scoring half/quarter/period

Predict in which half/quarter/period most points/goals will be scored. If two or more quarters/periods or halves have the same highest score, the Dead-heat rule applies unless equal outcome is offered. Check individual sport rules to determine if overtime is included / excluded.

Section 9. Odd/Even

Predict if accumulated goals/points/runs will add up to an odd or even number. When there is a zero score (for example no goals scored on a soccer game), Even will be declared the winner for grading purposes. If a game is abandoned, bets will be cancelled, unless an outcome is already determined. The market will be graded according to the specific terms of each sport.

Example 1:

Baseball, Team A vs Team B. The customer places a bet on Odd. The customer’s bet will win only if the total number of accumulated runs in the game add up to an odd number.

Example 2:

Basketball event, Team A vs Team B. The customer places a bet on Even number of points. The customer’s bet will win only if total number of accumulated points in the game will add up to an even number.

Section 10. To Qualify / Win the Cup / Advance to Next Round/ Win the Group or Division.

10.1 A bet on a team or player to qualify to the next round of the tournament. Winner is the team/player advancing to the next round or winning the cup. Should a team be disqualified from the tournament prior to the game, and a bye is awarded, then all qualification bets will be cancelled.

10.2 If the referee abandons a game (e.g. due to crowd disturbances, unplayability of the pitch, or one team not having enough players to continue) bets will be graded based on decisions of the relevant governing body.

Section 11. Division, League and Conference betting

11.1 In case of a change in the official competition rules, during the competition, bets will be cancelled (for example if the number of teams relegated changes).

11.2 For grading purposes, the Dead-Heat rule will apply in the event of two or more teams tying in the standings, unless there is a play-off to separate them. Bets will stand on any team which does not complete all its fixtures. If a team is removed from the league before the season has started, then all bets on that market will be cancelled. If a team is removed or excluded during the season, due to any external reasons (for example due to debt), then all bets concerning this team will be cancelled.

Section 12. Head-to-Head (H2H)

Predict which one of the teams/competitors in the Head-To-Head gets the best finishing result/position/points. Both participants in a H2H must start for bets to stand, and at least one of the participants has to finish with an official result. Otherwise, all bets will be cancelled, and full stakes will be refunded.

Section 13. Correct scores

Predict the score at the end of regulation time, unless stated otherwise.

Section 14. In Running Bet (Live bet)

When scores are displayed in running, every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the score, game situation, and clock. However, no liability is accepted for incorrect information displayed.

Section 15. Teasers

A teaser is a parlay bet where a patron can add extra points to his/her selection in a spread or totals market to increase the patron’s chances of winning. If any of the patron’s teased selections push, Hard Rock Bet ignores that selection for grading purposes and will be graded based on the selections which did not push, (e.g. a 4-team teaser where one team pushes becomes a 3 team teaser). This grading will be at reduced odds. If a teaser contains only one non-pushed selection, then the teaser is cancelled regardless of the outcome on that one selection. 3 selections are required for action where lines are teased by 10 points, all other teased lines require only two non-pushed selections for action.

Section 16. Same Game Parlay

A Same Game Parlay is a parlay bet where a patron makes multiple bet selections all occurring within the same event.

Section 17. Flex Parlay

A Flex Parlay is a parlay wager where a patron chooses multiple bet selections and a minimum number of correct selections needed to win the bet. For example, if a patron chooses 5 selections, the patron would be able to select either a number of 2, 3 or 4 of these 5 selections as the minimum number of correct selections required to win the bet. If a patron predicts at least 3 of 5 selections to win and ANY 3 of the 5 selections win, the Flex Parlay will be graded as a win.
PUSH/VOID/CANCELLED selections:
If a selection of a Flex Parlay becomes a push/void/cancel, the system will automatically adjust the Flex Parlay. Using the above example, if a selection is cancelled a ‘any 3 of 5 to win’ becomes a ‘any 2 of 4 to win’ and the odds will be updated in the system accordingly based on the remaining selections chosen.
If enough selections become pushed/voided/cancelled resulting in the patron’s correct selection prediction number becoming 1 or fewer, the Flex Parlay will be cancelled. In the above example, assuming 2 selections are cancelled, the entire bet would be cancelled as the correct selection prediction number becomes 1.

Part C. Sports Rules

Cancelled selections will result in straight wagers being refunded unless an outcome for a specific market has been determined. Parlays that involve a cancelled selection will stand as a parlay on the remaining selections, or as a single in the case where one selection in a two-selection parlay is cancelled.

Exceptions to this are Teasers, the rules for which are explained in the Market Rules section.Effects of scheduling changes depend on the nature of the change and the event/sport involved. See below specific sports rules that include specific rules on scheduling changes:
