- Once a wager is accepted by both parties, tickets will not be altered or voided prior to the start of said event except at the discretion of Management and with the approval of both parties.
- Management will keep a record of all point spreads, odds, final scores, and related proposition statistics and wagers to protect both the customer and Management in the case of obvious mechanical or human error. All final scores are confirmed by multiple official third party sources.

Definition of "ACTION"
- All football, basketball, hockey, and baseball games must be played on the date specified.
- If a game is postponed and/or rescheduled to a later date, said game will automatically constitute "no action" for wagering purposes, unless otherwise stipulated on the ticket.
- Fight matches must take place within one (1) week of specified date to be considered "action" unless otherwise stipulated on the ticket.
- Except as noted below, all other events must be held within one (1) week of scheduled date to be considered "action" unless otherwise stipulated on the ticket.
Definition of "Official"
- BASEBALL (major league, minor league, and college): In all nine-inning scheduled games, winners and losers are "official" after nine innings of play unless the home team is leading after eight and one-half innings.
- Called games must go a minimum of five innings, or four and one-half innings if the home team is ahead.
- The called games rule also applies to seven-inning scheduled games.
If a game goes past five innings and is subsequently called, the winner is determined by the score after the
last full inning of play. (Except in a case in which the home team scores to tie or take the lead in the bottom half of the inning in which the game is called, the runs do count.)
- BASKETBALL (college): After 35 minutes of play.
- BASKETBALL (professional): After 43 minutes of play.
- FIGHT (professional): When bell (buzzer, etc.) is sounded signifying the start of the opening round, the bout is considered "official" for wagering purposes, regardless of the scheduled length.
- FOOTBALL (both college and professional): After 55 minutes of play.
- HOCKEY (professional and college): After 55 minutes of play.
- OTHER: All other contests that involve a scheduled length of play or time limit must play to their conclusion or have five minutes or less of scheduled playing time remaining when the contest concludes in order to be considered "official" for wagering purposes.
WAGERING ON "TOTALS"
- When wagering on "totals" (i.e., over or under) on contests involving a scheduled time limit, all game wagering rules applicable to minimum length of play requirements shall also apply to "total" wagers (i.e., contests must play to their conclusion or have five minutes or less of scheduled playing time remaining for "total" wagers to be considered "action").
- When wagering on baseball "totals" (i.e., over or under) or "Run Lines," the game must go at least the regulation nine innings (eight and one-half if the home team is ahead) for a scheduled nine-inning game and seven innings (six and one half if the home team is ahead) for a scheduled seven-inning game.
- If the game goes past regulation innings and is subsequently suspended or postponed, it is considered to have "action" and the winner and loser shall be determined by the score at the time the game is called. In the case where the home team does not bat (complete their turn at bat) in the bottom half of an extra-inning game, the score reverts back to the previous full inning of play.
- Listed or specified pitchers must start in Total (i.e., over or under) wagers or "Run Line" wagers or there is "no action." If "no action", wagers will be refunded. If wager is part of a parlay, the parlay will reduce by one selection (i.e., 4 team parlay becomes a 3 team parlay).
INCLUDING OVERTIME PERIODS
- When wagering on "totals", overtime periods are counted in the final score.
- On half-time (in progress) wagers, overtime periods are included as part of the second half.
DETERMINING THE WINNER
- For wagering purposes, the winner of an event or game will be determined on the date of the event's conclusion according to House Rules. Management does not recognize suspended games, protests, overturned decisions, etc. for wagering purposes.
- In all future (advance) wagering involving a recognized sport organization (i.e., Super Bowl, World Series, etc.) the winner, as determined by the League Commissioner, Chairman or other authoritative office at the conclusion of said event, will also be declared the winner for wagering purposes. On all future book wagers (advanced wagers) there are no refunds.
Baseball wagers are accepted in the following manner:
- Action: Team against team regardless of the starting pitcher.
- One specific pitcher: a wager on or against one specific pitcher regardless of the other starting pitcher. The specified pitcher must start or the wager is deemed "no action". If "no action", wagers will be refunded. If wager is part of a parlay, the parlay will reduce by one selection (i.e., 4 team parlay becomes a 3 team parlay).
- Both Specified Pitchers or Listed Pitchers: a wager that specifies both starting pitchers. Any variation constitutes "no action". If "no action", wagers will be refunded. If wager is part of a parlay, the parlay will reduce by one selection (i.e., 4 team parlay becomes a 3 team parlay).
- NOTE: Each team's starting pitcher is defined, for wagering purposes, as the pitcher who throws the initial pitch.
- In the event of a pitcher(s) change prior to the start of a baseball game, money odds may be adjusted.
- For betting purposes, unless otherwise stipulated, matches are "action" when the bell, buzzer, etc. is sounded signifying the start of the opening round; the bout is considered "official" for betting purposes regardless of the scheduled length or title.
- A "full round" is defined as one in which the bell, buzzer, etc. has sounded signifying the conclusion of such round. If a fighter is counted out or the bout officially stopped prior to the bell, buzzer, etc. such round is not considered a "full round" for wagering purposes.
- All straight win wagers will have "action" regardless of any changes in weight class, scheduled length of the bout, or championship sanction unless otherwise stipulated. All round, K.O. or decision proposition wagers are "no action" if the scheduled length of the bout is changed. If "no action", wagers will be refunded. If wager is part of a parlay, the parlay will reduce by one selection (i.e., 4 team parlay becomes a 3 team parlay).
- On K.O. proposition wagers, K.O. includes knockout, technical knockout, disqualification, technical decision, or any other stoppage.
- On decision proposition wagers, decision means the fight must go the entire scheduled distance.
- All golf tournament wagers are "action"; no refunds, except for match-up proposition (see match-up rule on next line).
- All golfers in a match-up must tee off to start the tournament, or that match-up is "no action." If "no action", wagers will be refunded. If wager is part of a parlay, the parlay will reduce by one selection (i.e., 4 team parlay becomes a 3 team parlay).
- Golfer with the better (lower) score wins the match-up (with equal rounds played).
- If one golfer continues play after his opponent has missed the cut, withdrawn (WD), or been disqualified (DQ), the golfer who continues play wins his match-up.
If both golfers in a match-up are in a play-off:
Winner of play-off (and tournament) wins match.
