1 GENERAL RULES
John Mulholland reserves the right to accept or decline the whole or part of any proposed bet.
In the case of Football and other Sports, bets are settled on the official result published by the official governing body immediately the match/event is finished & will be used for settling purposes. Any subsequent corrections or amendments to this result will not apply for settlement purposes. We reserve the right to apply a dead heat reduction on any event where more winners are declared than were originally specified.
Bets are accepted up to the off-time of the event or a pre-determined time whichever the earlier. John Mulholland reserves the right to void any bet inadvertently accepted after the betting has closed or where the event was resolved or at a stage where the customer could have any indication of the outcome.
In the event of there being a dispute over the time at which a bet was placed then the time at which it was recorded on the betting slip will govern the settlement.

2 EVENTS ON WHICH BETS ARE ACCEPTED
Bets are accepted on all sporting events and special events as advertised by John Mulholland will be settled firstly, in accordance with the special rules issued for such events and secondly, by our general rules.
Bets are accepted for all meetings held under the recognized Irish Turf Club, Jockey Club and National Hunt Committee rules, Point-to-Point excluded (domestic horse racing). These are settled on a Double Result basis as detailed in our Double Result section. Bets will also be accepted for horse race meetings outside of Ireland and the UK horse racing abroad. These are settled on the official result.
Bets are accepted from selected greyhound meetings. These are settled on the official result.
3 SETTLEMENT OF BETS
3.1 Each Way Betting
Bets are settled to win unless each way is selected. An each way bet consists of one bet to win on the selection and one bet to place on the selection in accordance with the place terms for the event.
In single and accumulative bets on horse and greyhound racing place terms will be determined by the actual number of runners that run in the race. In any race of fewer than five starters, all place money will go on to a win.
For horse and greyhound racing only, the place part of each way bets will be settled as per the following each way terms:
Handicaps of more than 16 runners
1/4 odds 1-2-3-4
Handicaps of 12-15 runners
1/4 odds 1-2-3
All other races of more than 8 runners
1/5 odds 1-2-3
All races of 5-7 runners
1/4 odds 1-2
All races of 4 runners or less
Place money goes on to winPlease note that win only betting may only be available on selected races. Special place terms offered in any of our branches will supercede these rules.
Place bets are not accepted unless at least an equal amount is invested to win. Any place money inadvertently accepted in excess of the win will be divided equally as a win and place. However on occasion place only betting maybe advertised for selected events and any bets placed will be valid.
For the purpose of settlement each way accumulative bets are settled win-to-win and place-to-place.
In a DEAD HEAT the stake money on a selection is divided by the number of runners involved in the dead heat. The full odds are then paid to the divided stake with the remainder of the stake money being lost.
When a selection is made void or does not run, then in single bets the stake will be returned. In accumulative bets the stake will run on to the remaining selection(s) with a double becoming a single and so on up.
3.2 Related Contingencies.
Multiple bets are not accepted where the outcome of one event contributes wholly or partly to the outcome of the other. If taken in error the stakes will be equally divided where they clash. For example: €20 double Chelsea to win the FA Cup Semi-final 1-0 @7/1 and Chelsea to qualify for the final @4/6 is settled as 2x €10 singles. However where the related parts of the bet are resolved at different times the bet will be settled as instructed, with the price for the second or subsequent legs being determined at each individual stage. For example: A €20 double Chelsea to win the semi-final of the FA Cup and Chelsea to win the FA Cup outright is settled as instructed with the price for Chelsea to win the FA Cup outright being the next price on offer by John Mulholland after the semi-final has been concluded. Should Chelsea lose either the semi-final or final then the bet is a loser.
In the unlikely event of any disputes over any rule(s), the client has the option of naming the "The Independent Betting Arbitration Service" as arbitrator, whose decision shall be binding on both parties. All bets are treated on their merits, regardless of what has been the practice elsewhere or has happened in the past. Records of individual bets are held for 6 months, queries will not be entertained after this 6 month period has expired.
4 VARIOUS SPORTS
4.1 Athletics Rules
All bets are 'All in compete or not'

4.2 Baseball Rules
Listed Pitchers- All baseball betting is offered on the basis of both listed pitchers starting the game. Both listed pitchers must start the game and throw at least one pitch for bets to have 'action'. If either pitcher fails to start the game for any reason, the bet will be deemed to have 'no action' (i.e. void) and all stakes will be returned.
Side Betting- Winners and losers for betting are official after five innings of play unless the home team is leading after 4 ½ innings. If a game is 'called' or suspended, the winner is determined by the score after the last full inning (unless the home team score to tie, or takes the lead in the bottom half of the inning, in which case the winner is determined by the score at the time is called.). Stakes will be refunded if the home team ties the game and it is then suspended.
Total and Runline Betting- When betting on total runs (over/under) or runlines the game must go to 9 innings (8 ½ is the home team is ahead) to have 'action'
All games must start on the scheduled date for bets to have 'action'. If a game has been postponed or cancelled before its due start time, all bets are deemed 'no action'.
We reserve the right to suspend any or all betting on a game at any time without notice. (This may happen for example if a key player is not in the starting line-up for any reason)
Extra innings if played will count in the final result.
4.3 Boxing Rules
Should a contest be postponed, bets will stand for thirty days, inclusive of the original date for the contest. Stakes maybe refunded before the re-arranged contest by mutual consent.
Round-By-Round Betting- Where a boxer fails to answer the bell for the next round, his opponent will be deemed to have won the contest in the previous round. If for any reason a points decision is awarded before the full number of rounds are completed, bets will be settled on the round in which the fight was stopped. Bets which nominate 'to win on points' will only be deemed winners if the full number of rounds are completed.
4.4 Basketball Rules
At least 43 minutes of play must elapse for NBA bets to have action.
At least 35 minutes of play must have elapsed for NCAA Basketball bets to have action.
For betting purposes, the winner of a game will be determined by the official result at the end of the game after regular time and any period of over time played.
All games must start on the scheduled date for bets to have action.
We reserve the right to suspend any or all betting on a game at any time without notice. (This may happen for example if a key player is not in the starting line-up for any reason).
Handicap betting: The result used for settling is the match result adjusted for the handicap line available at the time the bet is struck. E.g. Sacramento +9 v Utah -9, Result: Sacramento 81-87 Utah. Sacramento win on Handicap. Where scores are level after accounting for the handicap, the bet is deemed a loser.
4.5 Cricket Rules
Betting on matches affected by the weather will be settled in line with the official result provided that, in the case of Test matches, at least one ball has been bowled. Bets will be void if a Test match is abandoned due to weather before a ball has been bowled or a match is abandoned due to any other reasons other than weather. If no draw price is offered and the match is drawn dead heat rules apply. If a side forfeits their 1st innings in a test match, all bets specifically relating to the 1st innings are void.
With Test Series betting and Series speciality bets the full number of Tests must be played, otherwise all bets are void. Bets on individual Tests will stand.
Outright betting - Limited Overs Matches: In matches affected by adverse weather, bets will be governed by the official competition rules. When no price is quoted for the tie and the official competition rules do not determine a winner, bets on the outright result will be void.
For 'one-day' matches in the event of a tie or draw match bets will be void unless a price was on offer for the tie. Bets are also void if the match is abandoned or void.
Top Series Batsman/ Bowler: All in play or not.
Top Batsman betting applies to the first innings only unless otherwise stated and bets stand irrespective of the number of overs bowled. Bets placed on any player not in the starting eleven are void. Bets on selected players who do not bat are losers.
4.6 Football Rules
Bets are accepted on all football where we offer prices. Where a bet is accepted on a match where no prices are on offer then that selection will be treated as a non-runner, but the remainder of any accumulative bet will stand provided there are not fewer than the stipulated minimum number of matches in the bet.
All bets on football are automatically on the basis of 90 minutes play unless otherwise stated. 90 minutes play includes time added on by referee for stoppages. This includes all special markets such as first goalscorer, number of corners, number of goals etc. Settlement will be at the price prevailing at the time the bet was placed and confirmed.
Dates and kick-off times of matches displayed for guidance purposes only. Bets will be accepted up until the advertised kick-off time. If a bet is inadvertently accepted which includes a match after it's actual kick-off time, the match will be treated as a non-runner, but the remainder of any accumulative bet will stand provided there are not fewer than the stipulated minimum number of matches in the bet.
If the venue of a match is other than is indicated, the bet will stand provided the match has not been switched to the opponent's ground, in which case the match will be declared void.
An unplayed or postponed match (ie. not played on the scheduled day) will be treated as a non-runner for settling purposes. If an accumulator is reduced by non-runners the bet will stand irrespective of the minimum requirements laid down in these rules.
The minimum number of selections allowed in any football bet is as advertised or as detailed at the head of each list on our coupons. Bets which do not meet the minimum requirements, except as provided elsewhere in these rules, will be void. There is no maximum limit to the number of 'home' or 'away' selections allowed. However the maximum number of draws which can be taken in any one accumulator is five. Should a line containing more than five draws be accepted inadvertently the stake will be apportioned to allow for the correct number of fivefolds and the bet settled accordingly.
Any match, which is abandoned before the completion of 90 minutes play, will be void with the remaining selections being settled irrespective of any minimum requirements. This ruling applies to all lists with the exception of bets involving first goalscorer, which will stand provided a goal has been scored prior to the abandonment.
For the purpose of deciding results on 'Handicap Betting', a number of goals (or half goals) is added to, or subtracted from, the total goals scored by the away team. Settlement of any handicap betting will be at the special odds shown alongside the match(es), using the actual score in the match adjusted for the handicap.
Bets taken on first goalscorer will be void if that player does not take part in the game or if he comes on after the first goal is scored. Bets on last goalscorer will be void if that player does not take part in the game or does not come on as a substitute. In the event of a dispute over the award of a goal, settlement will be based on the majority verdict as the results section in the following day's edition of the Irish edition of The Irish Times, Irish Independent, Daily Star, Daily Mirror and The Sun (For Saturday matches Monday's papers will apply.
For bets on 'Anytime Goalscorer': Players will be considered to be a runner and bets will stand, should he play any part in the match. Goals scored in normal time only count for this market. Goals scored in extra time or in a penalty shoot-out do not count. Own goals do not count.
If the results sections of the above papers do not contain the names of the goalscorers for matches outside the UK, then settlement will be based on information obtained from the national newspapers of the relevant country.
'Special spreads' are defined as (i) Number of Corners, (ii) Number of Goals and (iii) card index. Bets on special spreads are only accepted on games for which we advertise them. In the event of an abandoned match all bets on special spreads will be void unless the maximum quote has been obtained. For example should a customer back 12 or more corners in a match and that match is abandoned when 13 corners have already been taken then that bet is a winner with all other bets on corners losers.
Bets on 'Number of Corners' refers to corners taken and not corners awarded.
Bets on 'Card Index' are settled as follows: Yellow Card = 10 points; Red Card = 25 points. If a player is shown a yellow card and subsequently sent off this counts as 35 points.
Bets on 'Number of Goals' include own goals.
All other soccer betting offered is settled firstly, in accordance with the special rules issued for such events and secondly, by our general betting rules.
Scorecasts (First player to score/correct score doubles) are now available on selected matches. To win you must successfully forecast both the player who will score the first goal in a selected match and also the correct score after 90 minutes play. If a player is selected who comes on after the first goal has been scored or does not take part in the match, the bet will be settled as a correct score single. In the event of a match being abandoned, bets will be void unless a goal has been scored prior to abandonment, when bets will be settled as singles on the selected first goalscorer at the appropriate odds. In the eventuality of all goals in the match being own goals, all bets will be settled as correct score singles at the correct score odds only.
The onus is on the customer to verify that the combined selections are valid.
4.7 Greyhound Racing Rules

Actual race times written on a bet (2.08,4.14) will govern settlement. When the race time and meeting nominated do not correspond, the race time written will identify the selection.
Untimed or incorrectly timed singles or single forecasts will be settled as for the next BAGS race to go off, identified by the time the bet was stamped. In such cases, when two BAGS meetings are taking place, and one meeting is nominated, the bet will stand for the next race at that meeting.
Where a board price is taken about a trap number, and there can be no doubt as to the race on which the board price was being offered when the bet was accepted, the bet will be settled for that race, irrespective of the time written on the slip.
When a price taken obviously conflicts with the trap number stated, the trap number takes precedence.
Selections are void, win or lose when:

All bets on horse racing outside of Ireland and the UK are settled on a rules of racing basis only.

Where a horse is withdrawn before coming under starter's orders, or is officially deemed by the Starter not to have taken part, stakes on that horse will be refunded and winning bets may be liable to deductions in accordance with Tattersalls Rule 4.

The above scale will also apply in the case of non-runners in Early Price races and will be used for other events where we specifically advertise, either in these rules or at the event itself that Tattersalls Rule 4 (abbreviated to Rule 4) may apply.
In the event of a false start etc. resulting in a race being re-run, 'Under Starter's Orders' is negated and stakes will be refunded on the remaining runners subject to Rule 4. The number of runners taking part in the re-run governs place terms.
Walkovers and void races count as races but any horse so involved will be treated as a non-runner for settling purposes.
Where we offer a special price for a named jockey double, treble etc. and we also list the horses involved then that bet will stand irrespective of whether the jockey does in fact ride the horse in question.
Where we offer a special price for a named jockey/trainer/owner double, treble etc. if there are any non-runners in any leg other than the horses specified then Rule 4 may apply.
In the bets outlined above, if the starting price return is greater than the price offered then the bet will be settled at starting price. This does not apply to any specials including a 'placed' selection or sporting event i.e. other than horse or greyhound racing. In the bets outlined above if any of the named selections is a non-runner then the bet will be settled on the remaining selections at SP.
We accept bets on 1st FAVOURITES only. Bets on unnamed FAVOURITES are accepted WIN ONLY, place money refunded, if taken or placed in error.

Where you have backed a favourite, specified the time, but omitted the meeting, or entered an incorrect meeting (i.e. where the meeting you have entered has no corresponding time to the time you have entered), your bet is settled at the meeting with the corresponding time. Where two or more meetings have the same time, your stake is equally divided between the two races.
When a favourite is selected, no price may be taken.
4.8.2 Forecasts & Tricasts
All English horse racing forecasts will be settled in accordance with the officially declared S.P. Computerised Forecast returns. Computer forecasts are straight forecasts to a €1 stake. We do not accept Tote Forecasts/Dual Forecasts, if taken or placed in error, they will be settled as computer forecasts, or in the case of dual forecasts, they will be settled as two half stake reversed forecasts.
Forecast trebles, or accumulators, if taken or placed in error will be void.

Forecasts: Forecast bets are accepted on all Horse and Greyhound races, in the UK and Ireland, which have 3 or more runners. Forecast bets are settled from the returns declared by the CSF or BAGS/BEGS F/C.
Forecast bets are void when:
One of the selections does not run.
Less than 3 runners take part in the event.
One of the selections is the Unnamed Favourite.
Horse and Greyhound (BAGS/BEGS) Tricasts are only accepted on races for which a Computer Tricast dividend is declared. Tricasts will be settled in accordance with this official computerised return.
A tricast with a non runner will be settled as a forecast on the two remaining selections in the order in which they are written. A combination tricast with three selections which contains a non runner will be settled as a reverse forecast with the two remaining selections. Should a tricast include two non-runnners, the stake will be void.
A combination tricast with more than three selections which contains a non runner will be settled only on the selections which run, with the combinations which contain a non runner void. A tricast placed or accepted in error for a non tricast race will be treated as a forecast on the two remaining selections in the order in which they are written. A combination tricast placed or accepted in error for a non tricast race will be settled as combination forecasts with the total stake reapportioned for forecast combinations.
4.8.3 Dead Heat
In the event of a dead heat for first the stake money on a winning selection will be divided by the number in the dead heat, and full odds will be paid to the divided stake. The same rule applies to place betting where, as a result of a dead heat more than the required number of horses are placed.
4.8.4 Racing Put Back
When racing is put back, bets on unnamed horses or dogs must be timed in accordance with original advertised time.
4.8.5 Credit Bets
We do not accept "if cash", "any to come", "up and down", or "stop at win/lose" bets.
4.8.6 Problem with Names etc.
a) Slight mis-spelling of horses and dogs does not render the bet void, provided there is no other like sounding horse or dog engaged that day, and the spelling does not make the selection ambiguous.
b) Where a horse and dog have the same name on the same day, and it is not clear which you are backing, the bet is settled on the horse.
c) Where the only difference is a suffix and it is not clear which you are backing, bets are settled on the horse with out the suffix, unless the suffix is clearly marked on your docket.
d) Should a named selection be incorrectly written so that more than one selection in the same race could conceivably have been intended, the stake, or part of stake affected, will be equally divided between or among the selections concerned.
e) Horses or dogs engaged more than once. The selection you back will be taken for the first race it actually runs in, unless it is otherwise timed, the price taken clearly indicates the race intended or the bet it is involved in, indicates another fixture.
f) Named selections will take precedence over horse numbers where both are written to indicate one selection. And numbers will take precedence over horse prices, where both are written to indicate one selection.
4.8.7 Ante Post
Where an event is postponed, ante post bets will stand until the event is decided or abandoned.
If the race is abandoned, declared void, or if the conditions of the race are altered after the bets are made, or if the horse is balloted out, single ante post bets will be void. Accumulative or combination ante post bets will stand and will be settled at the ante post price(s) laid on the remaining selections. Selections affected by the above are treated as non runners. Bets will not be accepted where the same selection is taken to win more than one event. Stakes will be divided in bets where the success of one selection contributes to the success of another.
4.8.8 Two Horses in the Same Race
When a client backs two horses (dogs) in the same race in doubles, trebles, etc., the stake is equally divided between the two horses when they come together e.g. €1 double Arkle & Mill Reef (both horses in the same race). It becomes two 50c singles. €1 treble Arkle, Mill Reef, Red Rum. (Arkle & Mill Reef both horses in the same race) It becomes two 50p doubles, Arkle & Red Rum and Mill Reef & Red Rum. Accumulators are treated in the same way.
4.8.9 Board Prices
Board prices are odds relayed from the course by S.I.S. Board price bets are accepted on all races.
It is essential that you make it clear that you require board price at the time you place your bet, in order that the board price can be recorded on your docket by a member of the staff. Unless the price is recorded on your docket, it will be settled at S.P.
A board price taken on a selection will apply to that selection on all bets on your docket, unless you specifically state otherwise on your docket. We do NOT lay bar prices or prices which are unavailable at the time the bet is placed, if accepted by mistake, the bet is settled at S.P.
Should a horse or dog be withdrawn, then no board prices will be accepted after that, unless the market is reformed. Rule 4 will apply to board prices accepted before the withdrawal.
When a mistake is made by a member of our staff, the bet will stand at the correct price at the time the bet was placed, or the S.P. whichever is greater. Where S.I.S. correct a mistake, the bet is settled at the correct price.
4.8.10 Tote Bets
We do not accept Tote bets on horse or dog racing with the exception of the Tote Placepot dividend. (see Tote Placepot rules).
All placepots are settled "Rules of Racing ONLY". Non runners: The S.P. favourite will be substituted. Where there is more than one favourite returned, the fav with the lowest racecard number will be the selection. In the event of no dividend being declared, bets will be settled as a place accumulator at S.P. odds. U.K. placepots are generally settled on the first 6 races at each meeting.
We do not accept Placepots for Irish meetings. Any accepted in error will be treated as void bets, win or lose.
4 horses or less win only, 5,6 or 7 horses 1st & 2nd, 8 or more horses 1st, 2nd, & 3rd , handicaps with 16 or more runners 1st ,2nd, 3rd, & 4th.
N.B. All our placepot rules take precedence over any rule on reverse side of docket.
All bets will be settled on 60/70 minutes play respectively at the prices advertised. The term '60/70 minutes play' refers to the period of play which included time added by the match officials for stoppages, but not scheduled extra time. Any subsequent enquiries into the match result or later match disqualification will be ignored for settlement of match bets which will be settled on that days match result.
Any match which is abandoned before the completion of the match i.e. 60/70 play will be void. This ruling does not apply to first goalscorer bets which will stand provided a goal has been scored prior to abandonment. Number of points bets or number of goal bets will be void unless the maximum quote has been obtained at the time of abandonment in which case bets will stand.

4.10 Lucky Numbers Betting (including Lottery, 49s and Rapido)
Bets placed on the Lucky Numbers game are settled based on the numbers drawn by the official Lotto draw shown live on RTE 1 or Network 2 each Wednesday and Saturday.
Where the type of numbers game is not indicated (Lucky Numbers, 49s or Rapido) the bet will be automatically settled on the Lucky Numbers.
In the event of multiple draws, all bets will automatically be settled on the first draw unless the specific draw is mentioned.
Bets including the bonus number must be clearly stated. When 6 or 7 numbers are not clearly stated, bets will automatically be settled on 6 numbers.
All Lucky Numbers bets on a specific draw must be placed and confirmed before the first number is drawn. If, for any reason any bets are placed after the first number is drawn, those bets will be void and the stakes returned, win or lose.
If a draw time is moved to another time within 12 hours of the advertised time of the draw, all bets on that draw will stand, unless the bets placed are late. If a lottery moves a draw by more than 12 hours of the advertised time, all bets on that draw will be deemed void and the stakes returned.
John Mulholland general betting rules will govern any situation not covered in the rules.
Illegible figures will be treated as void with the bet reduced accordingly. Odds will apply for the valid numbers only, for example, if a bet on the 3 correct numbers section comprises two numbers and a void number, this bet will be settled on the odds applicable to the 2 number section. Understaked bets will be proportionately settled.
Should a tournament be shortened, or otherwise affected due to weather conditions the official result will be used when settling all bets, including tournament, Match and Group bets, regardless of the number of rounds played. However should there be no further play after a bet is struck that bet will be void. In the event of a postponed event all bets stand.
Ante-post bets (bets placed prior to the Monday immediately preceding the event) are 'All in compete or not' and non-players are losers. Bets placed from the Monday of that weeks events are 'non-player no bet' and we reserve the right to deduct the equivalent Tattersalls rule 4c to reflect returning stakes on non-players. Any players who withdraw after they have teed-off are considered as players and are therefore losers, except in the following circumstances:- For outright betting, bets placed on players after they have teed-off are void provided that the player takes no further part in the event after the bet is placed, eg bets placed after the second round and the player withdraws before the third round - such bets on the withdrawn player are void and we reserve the right to deduct the equivalent Tattersalls Rule 4.
When more than one player shares the same lowest score in a tournament and there is no play-off, win and place bets are settled by the normal dead-heat method outlined in the Settlement of Bets section.
In the event of a play-off the result of the play-off will determine the winner of the tournament only. Even if three or more contestants take part such a play-off has the sole purpose of deciding the winner of the tournament and the relative finishing positions of unsuccessful contestants is not affected for Outright, Match or Group bets which are settled as detailed below.
For each way bets dead heat rules apply. For example, if each-way terms quoted for a tournament are for the first 4 places, the 3 players tying for third place will be deemed to have dead-heated for third, fourth and fifth place with 1/3 stake lost and 2/3 stake settled at full place odds for each way bets on those players.
72 Hole Group Betting & 72 Hole Match Betting:
In 72 Hole match betting and 72 hole group betting the winner will be the player with the highest placing at the end of the tournament. Players missing the cut will be eliminated. If all listed players miss the cut the player with the lowest score at the cut will be deemed the winner.
In 72 Hole Group Betting in the event of a tie dead heat rules apply. In 72 Hole Match Betting the odds for a tie are included.
In 72 Hole Group betting in the event of a listed player being withdrawn prior to the first round then Rule 4 will apply.

Top European Players, Top US Player etc are settled in the same way as 72 Hole Group betting.
Three Ball Two Ball Betting:
In 2/3 ball betting the winner will be the player in the pairing or group with the lowest score over 18 holes.
Should a player in the 2/3 ball not tee-off all bets in that 2/3 ball are void. However should a player retire during the round he will be deemed to have played.
In the event of a 2/3 ball being re-arranged all bets in that 2/3 ball will stand as per original pairings/groups.
Odds for a tie are offered in 2 ball betting, therefore in the event of a tie bets on both players are losers and bets on the tie are winners. Dead Heat rules apply in the event of a tie in 3 ball betting.
