Outright Betting (including event winner, top 3/6/10, to win gold/any medal)

Unless otherwise stated, betting is on an 'all-in run or not' basis. (No refunds for non-starters). Podium positions and all other results will be determined by the official prize giving/medal ceremony immediately after the event and will not be affected by any subsequent enquiries. All events will be settled as per official governing body (FIS/IBU/International Olympic Committee (IOC) results). If a 2 round event is not fully completed but a result declared by the FIS then bets will be settled as per the official results sheet. If no result is declared then all bets will be made void. Dead heat rules apply.

Group Betting (including the top athlete from any given nation, for example: ‘German athlete’)

If one or more participants fail to take part in a specified event then bets will be void. Dead-heat rules apply.

Ski Jumping: Both Ski Jumpers must leave the start gate for bets to stand. If neither competitor completes the first jump bets are void.
