EGB Betting Rules
Placing Bets and Acceptance of Bets
- Minimum bet on an event is 1.00 USD, except for bets on a tournament winner, where minimum bet is 0.01 USD. We reserve the right to change the minimum bet amount at our sole discretion and/or set limits for other games offered by us.
- An “event” may refer to various events, including, for example, an eSports game (match), a series of eSports games (matches) between the same individual players or teams, or an in-game event.
- Maximum bet is determined at our sole discretion, on a case-by-case basis for each event and/or each type of bet, and is subject to change without notice to you.
- We may set personal betting limits for you without notice and without giving you the reasons. Such limits apply to any one customer, or group of customers acting together, who have placed bets containing the same selections, including where placed in a series of bets, at a range of prices, over a number of days using different betting accounts and/or across different betting channels. Should we have reason to believe that a number of bets have been placed this way, the total of all those bets combined will be limited to one single maximum bet.
- We reserve the right to decline, at our sole discretion, all, or part, of any bet requested.
- All lines, odds, maximum bet restrictions, totals, handicaps are subject to fluctuation and become fixed for you only at the time of bet acceptance.

- We do not take responsibility for missing or duplicate bets made by you.
- Bets on events that have started will be void unless it is a live in-play betting event.
- You agree that our transaction log database will have the ultimate authority to determine the time bets are placed.

- We reserve the right to cease or suspend betting on any event and/or void (cancel) any bet at any time without notice. When betting on an event is suspended, any bets entered will be rejected.

In case the actual starting time differs from the scheduled time, the final decision is made by us at our sole discretion.If a match is interrupted, all live bets on in-play events completed before the match interruption will stand.If any event is not played on its scheduled date and time for any reason and/or is postponed, interrupted or abandoned, we reserve the right to void all bets at our sole discretion. For example, we may decide that bets for such an event stand for a certain time but no longer than 72 hours following the originally scheduled start time. If after that time the event is not played then all bets will be made void.

- In case of disputable situations, conflicting data published by different sources or obvious mistakes the final decision on bet settlement is made by us at our sole discretion.
- If the first map of a match is not completed because of player or team retirement or disqualification (a walkover, default loss, etc.), all bets on the match will be void, except for bets on the first map. If a team is disqualified when playing the first map but plays the next map of the match, then the outcome of the entire match will stand. If the outcome of a nested bet has not been clearly determined as of the time of disqualification, these bets will be void.
