  1. The start dates and times displayed on our website for E-Sport matches are an indication only and are not guaranteed to be correct. If a match is suspended or postponed, and not resumed within 48 hours from the actual scheduled start time, then picks on the match will have no action and be refunded.

    The exception being any picks on whether a team/player advances in a tournament, or wins the tournament, will have action regardless of a suspended or postponed match.

  2. If the name of a player/team is misspelled, all picks will stand unless it is obvious it is the wrong object.
  3. If in an official match a player plays with the wrong nickname or on a smurf-account, the result is still valid unless it is evident that it is not the player that was supposed to play that match.
  4. All picks will be settled using the official result as declared by the relevant governing body of the competition concerned.
  5. If a draw option has not been made available, then extra time will count, if played.
  6. Handicap Picks: A spread in E-Sports can be Rounds/Maps or other counting measures dependent on the game. The spread will only be referred to as the spread. (For example, in Counter Strike the spread will be rounds won, while in Starcraft 2 the spread would be maps).

    Handicapping is a way of making a sports contest more even and thus more interesting as a selection object. In E-Sports picks, this is done by awarding one of the teams/players, the underdog, some maps/rounds ahead

    If Player A wins the match by two maps or more, Player A picks win and Player B picks lose. If Player A wins by exactly one map or Player B wins, Player B picks win and Player A picks lose.

  7. Total Selections: A total in E-sports can be Rounds/Maps or other counting measures dependent on the game. The total will only be referred to as the total.

    If either player wins 2-0 all picks on under 2.5 will win, while picks on the over will lose. If either player wins 2-1 all picks on the over win, while picks on the under lose.

  8. If a map is not completed because of a player retirement or disqualification, all picks on the outcome will have action and will be validated based on the official declared winner. Counter-Strike maps are exceptions to this rule, for which all moneyline, spread and total picks are canceled if a team retires or is disqualified before all scheduled map rounds are played.
  9. Should a player/team withdraw before a tournament begins, or retire during a tournament, picks on that player/team to win the tournament, or to advance in tournament, will be canceled and Playbetr chips refunded.

    If the respective player/team withdraws before the tournament begins while being listed as “must start”, then picks on whether a player/team advances in tournament or wins the tournament, will have no action and monies refunded – this applies to all players/teams participant in the tournament.

  10. If the announced number of maps/rounds is changed all picks on the handicap or total are canceled. Picks on the moneyline (outcome of the match) have action.
  11. If a player or team receives a walkover or win by admin decision on at least one map, all picks on the series (moneyline, spread and total) will be canceled and Playbetr chips refunded. In CS:GO, if a team retires or is disqualified before all scheduled rounds on a map are played, all picks on the series (moneylines, spread and total) will be canceled and Playbetr chips refunded as well.
  12. Live Picks: In live selections, if a map is replayed due to a draw, disconnect or similar reasons, all live picks on the respective map will be canceled. The replay of the map will be treated as a separate game.
  13. Picks will not be canceled because a team is playing with a stand-in or replacement player. If the organizer of the event allows for stand-ins and there is an official result, all picks will be graded normally.
  14. In games with a Hero Draft/Champions Select phase (dota 2, LoL, etc...) picks during this phase are allowed.
  15. Props:

    First Tower: The first team that has one of their towers destroyed loses this pick.

    First Blood: The team that is announced in-game to get "First Blood" wins this pick.

    1st to 10 kills: The first team to get to 10 kills on the in-game scoreboard wins this pick.

    1st Round: The team that wins the first round wins this pick.

    1st to 5 Rounds: The team that first wins 5 rounds wins this pick.
