Technical Issues

Obvious and technical errors

  1. The Company is not responsible for errors in typing, transfer or counting of bets. In particular, EbonyBET reserves the right to correct obvious errors made while entering information on betting coefficients and/or  calculation of the amounts at the bets (for example, errors in the coefficients indicated in teams incorrectly, incorrectly indicated events, etc.), or declare invalid the corresponding bets even after completion of the event. In the cases of correcting obvious errors bets are returned. The most common types of technical errors are the following:

6.1.1    Errors of input of coefficients – when the coefficient (or the setting of the handicap/total, etc.) is displayed without a separator (dot) or with any additional number. Example: instead of the coefficient 1.8, 18 is displayed, instead of 2, 23 is displayed, instead of 3, 30 is displayed etc.

6.1.2.   “Mirror Errors” – when the coefficients for players are displayed in a diametrically opposite manner. In this case, the favorite of the game (including current favorite of live event) is displayed by a coefficient exceeding the coefficient of the outsider of the given event. Example: Basketball. Barcelona-Unicaja. The winner of the match; Instead of 1.2 and 4, 4 and 1.2 is displayed.

6.1.3.   Writing errors – if all the coefficients are indicated correctly, however, teams are written in an incorrect order (usually occurs for events taking place on a neutral field).

Clear indicators of obvious errors are: very large difference in the coefficients of EbonyBET and other bookmakers, the coefficients that are nearly impossible to give in the current situation of the match.

The right to determine whether or not an obvious or a technical error was made in any case belongs exclusively to EbonyBET.

  1. EbonyBET reserves the right to abolish the bets made on deliberately incorrect coefficients and obvious errors. The customer will be informed about changes in the balance immediately.
  2. EbonyBET reserves the right to cancel the bets even after the end of the event if these bets are won by the User as a result of a technical failure or an obvious error.
  3. In cases when due to technical reasons the User’s bets were not provided with the necessary amount of funds in the account, the bets are considered as invalid.
  4. In case of mistakenly having credited the means to the customer’s account the latter shall immediately notify EbonyBET about the mistake. If due to an error a negative balance has been formed at the client, the betting company has the right to cancel the uncalculated bets despite the fact that they were made before the error occurred.
  5. The Company reserves the right to oblige the User to liability for any damage caused to it if the user used a technical or administrative error intentionally when making a deposit and/or during the receipt of money on the account.

Late bets

  1. Bets placed after the start of the event, except the bets for Live Events, in all cases, are invalid and are returnable, and are excluded from the “express” and “system” bets. Any bet (including bets for Live Events) made on an event, the result of which is already known by the time of betting, is considered invalid and will be refunded.
  2. If the User wishes to challenge the time of the start of the event, he must provide an official document (or a link to the website of regulatory bodies of the given event) which confirms the actual time of the start of the match on which the given bet was made.
  3. While arising disputes regarding the time of the start of the event, if the official regulatory bodies of the appropriate tournament/event do not provide (or lack) such information, the information of EbonyBET about the start time of the event is considered the only correct one while calculating the bets.

Return

    1. If a “return” is declared about the bet, such bet is considered as won with the coefficient of 1. In case of “Single” bets this means that the User will get back the amount of money placed to this bet. In the case of “express” or “system” bets the total coefficient will be changed accordingly (in the event, where a return occurred, the coefficient will get the value 1, the coefficients on the remaining events will remain unchanged, and the final coefficient will be counted according to similar scheme; only the coefficient of the outcome on the event, on which was given a return – one of the factors (multipliers) of the final coefficient of  “express” or “system” – will get the value 1).

Example:

Accumulator

Position                                             Outcome                              Coefficient

Finland, Moldova                                Win 1                                      1.55

Malta-Croatia                                      Croatia Handicap (-2)             1.7

Bulgaria-England                                Win 2                                      1.5

Total coefficient of Accumulator = 1.55 * 1.7 * 1.5 = 3.95

In case Finland and England won in the above mentioned games, and Croatia won by  2 goals advantage, and the given express plays, but when calculating the total coefficient there will be 1 instead of 1.7 (coefficient of winning) and the final coefficient of the given express will be equal to 1.55*1*1.5 = 2.325

If as a result of the match the total number of scored goals is equal to the total of the bet and among the proposed outcomes of the given total bets there has not been the option equal … (the indicated number) of goals, a return is made. Similarly, for the individual totals, totals of the player, totals of cards/corners /removals, fouls and other parameters if the final value of the match and the proposed parameter of the total are equal a return is made.
