Overview of Football Betting Online in Malaysia
Unlike other online sports betting in Malaysia, football bettings are settled based on a regular time of play — including any stoppage time added by the referee, but excluding extra time and penalty shootouts, unless otherwise stated. Extra time prices may be introduced at the end of the scheduled period.
Where football matches are scheduled for play other than under regular time (e.g. Special time periods of play on various tournaments or friendly matches) all football bettings will be settled at the end of that scheduled time.
Unless non-regular time football matches are expressly indicated on the website prior to all football matches, football bettings taken on such football matches will be considered VOID.
Where less than regular time is played, settlement of all football bets for up to 72 hours or such other period necessary pending its verification of the status and outcome of the match. The status of the football match shall be determined by reference to the status and outcome [if any] posted on the official website of the sport governing body. If the official website’s posted status or outcome is manifestly wrong or where there is no official website or where there is no posted status or outcome on the official website, the gaming site shall use its best endeavours to determine the correct status and outcome of the match. In such cases, the gaming site’s decision on the status and outcome shall be final and all bets shall be settled pursuant to the gaming site’s decision in accordance with the rules stated herein.
Bet Types Offered in Online Football Betting
1×2 bets can be made by either selecting a Home Win, a Draw or an Away Win. Bets will be settled at the end of regular time play, excluding extra time and penalties (where applicable).
The Asian Handicap is a style of betting where the bookmaker handicaps the two teams in a game before its commencement. Using American Football as an example, the bookmaker gives a one-goal deficit to the team he thinks is more likely to win, and a head start to the team he thinks is less likely to win. The handicaps are expressed in goals, or fractions of goals. To win a bet, the end user, rather than backing a team to win, bets on it to overcome the handicap.
Half Time/Full Time
This is a bet on the half time and full time results of a designated match. Do note that the bet is void if the match is played in a time format not expressly provided in Specific Sports Betting Rules.
A mix parlay bet combines multiple selections of different games or matches offered by the bookmaker for betting. A mix parlay bet which combines different selections within the same game or match is not allowed where the outcome of one affects the other. At least select 2 different events to complete a parlay. If one (or more) selection should fail to win, then the Parlay loses. If one (or more) selections should be postponed, then the odds for that selection will revert to 1.00 odds.
Money Line/Head to Head
A money line / Head to Head bet is a bet on the outcome of a match or event between two paired competitors. In the event of a draw result, all bets will be refunded at odds of 1.00.
Bets are settled based on the aggregate sum total of points/goals (resulting in an odd or even number) in a match or series of matches in which the bets were placed. A 0-0 score is considered as even.
An outright bet involves the selection of a winner in a tournament, competition, league or event either from the onset or at any stage of the tournament, competition, league or event prior to the conclusion of the competition where the results are still undecided.
- There are no refunds on non-starters for outright betting.
- The Dead Heat Rule applies to all outright betting.
Bets are settled based on the aggregate sum total of points/goals etc. achieved (resulting in an over or under a prescribed target number set by the Gaming site) in a match or series of matches in which the bets were placed.
Period betting means the placing of a bet on different segments of a game (e.g. quarters, halves, periods, sets, rounds or overs).
In Period Betting, a segment must be completed in order for the bets to be valid. Overtime or extra time is excluded in determining the scores if nothing else is stated. Subject to the Specific Sport Betting Rules, period betting on the 2nd half shall include overtime in determining the score.
