Payouts for Australian Rules Football (AFL) are based on the Official Result. All matches are settled at ‘Normal Time’ with no extra time played. In the event of a draw in a market where no draw option is offered, Crownbet will apply the ‘Dead Heat’ rule and all wagers will be settled at half the face value of the ticket (this includes the AFL Grand Final). For matches in tournaments such as NAB Cup, all other AFL Finals and any other competition where extra time is played, all wagers will be settled on the result at the completion of extra time.
Where a draw option (Both Teams are on the same score) is offered, a bet is decided on the result at the end of normal time (i.e. extra time is not included). For Margin betting (A Margin Bet involves the selection of a team as well as the selection of the range that the winning margin will fall within from the nominated list of options) a Draw option is always offered. However, for betting options where a draw option is not offered, the Dead Heat Rules apply. In Quarter by Quarter betting the draw option can only be paid once regardless of the number of quarters ending in a draw while the Tri-Bet betting option is paid as ‘Either Team under Option’ if the game ends in a draw and no extra time is played.
If an AFL match is Abandoned or Postponed and not played within 24hrs of the scheduled start time, all wagers will be voided and multi bets will be recalculated excluding the odds from the affected match.
CrownBet reserve the right to apply deductions in the event of a player scratching in the most disposal and most goals markets.
