GENERAL RULES


These rules apply to all Manny Bernstein telephone betting account holders and clients are advised to make themselves aware of the following rules which govern all transactions between us.

We may amend these rules at any time, and any exception or amendment which is made by an announcement in the press or by a notice sent to you is to be read as being part of these rules. Any bet or part bet which is precluded by these rules will be void.

It is important when placing bets over the telephone that you:


1. TERMS OF BUSINESS

DEBIT CARD BETTING


Minimum total stake per call is £5 (Five Pounds).

Our policy with Debit Card Betting is to obtain authorisation for ALL transactions at the time of accepting the wager.

The authorisation procedure normally takes several seconds, however, on occasions there may be insufficient time to obtain the necessary authorisation prior to the "off" being announced. Should this occur then you will be informed as to the situation and whether or not your wager has been accepted.

Any wager accepted without authorisation will stand irrespective of whether the transaction is subsequently authorised or declined by your bank. In this case of any declined transaction we reserve the right to withhold any winnings until such time that the stake monies have been obtained from your bank account.

All stakes and winnings will be debited/credited to your bank using the Debit Card details held by us.

Should any details on your Switch/Delta Solo electron card change then you must inform us immediately to ensure no delay in the acceptance of transactions or return of your winnings.

Should your Switch/Delta/Solo electron card be lost or stolen you should inform us immediately. No further bets will be taken against your card(s) until new details have been received by us.

    9. FAVOURITES & NUMBERED SELECTIONS (HORSE RACING)


    1. The Favourite is the one which is returned at the shortest rate of odds. Where two are returned at the same shortest rate of odds, these two are Joint Favourites and Joint Second Favourites and the next shortest price is the Third Favourite. where a client backs the First, Second or Third Favourite and two or more at the same price then the stake is divided equally over the Joint or Co-Favourites thus created.
    2. Commissions for First and Second favourites are accepted WIN ONLY for singles, doubles, trebles and Accumulators at Starting Price. If taken in error the Place part of any such bet will be void.
    3. Where a Favourite commission is accepted and the meeting is not nominated, the bet will stand for the races timed, providing that these races do not clash with other races having the same advertised Off time. Where the time of such races clash the stakes will be divided equally on to those races having the same Off time whose results are being given 'race by race' over the official SIS commentary service. Where combination or Accumulative wagers are involved and the client makes it perfectly clear by the exact times requested, that only one particular meeting can be meant, he will be on at that meeting even if some of the advertised race times clash with race times at other meetings. For example, if the client has a £1 Yankee without naming the meeting and states the following times, 2.00, 2.35, 3.05, 3.30 and these are the exact times of the races for Ascot on this particular day, he will be on at Ascot even though there are other meetings that day with the same race times.
    4. Where a horse is withdrawn not under orders but is still returned Favourite, is treated as a non-runner.

    Early prices or board prices cannot be taken on unnamed favourites.


    10. FORECASTS


    1. Forecasts are accepted for races of three or more runners and will be settled as Straight Forecasts. In any race where no Computerised Starting Price Forecast is returned, Forecasts will be settled in accordance with the N.S.L.S.P Straight Forecast chart. Should a Starting Price not be returned, the Forecasts for that race will be void. Should a non-runner be selected in a Forecast, that particular Forecast will be void. Where instructions are given as Forecast the selections must finish 1st and 2nd in the order requested.
      Should a non-runner be selected in a Straight Tricast - the remaining selections will be classed as a Straight Forecast. In Combination Tricasts any non-runners, the bet will be void.
    2. We accept computer Forecast Doubles and Forecast Treble (B.A.G.S. meetings only) and the returns will be calculated by multiplying the appropriate returns applicable to each Forecast selection. When a forecast Double includes a non-runner then the Double becomes a single Forecast. Forecast Accumulators are not accepted.
    3. Requests for a selection 'with a field' or a selection 'against the field' mean in both cases that the selection is required to win. Requests for 'The field with' or 'The field against' a selection means in both cases that the selection is required to be second.

    11. CONDITIONAL BETS (ANY TO COME)


    1. In Any To Come wagers it must be clearly stated from which selection(s) the Any-To-Come is to be taken. Cash in hand from one selection cannot go on to the same selection or any selection in the same race. Any To Come wagers will be executed in strict rotation until the stake plus any winnings are exhausted, subject to (c), should there be insufficient cash in hand to cover all selections the bet will be exhausted as far as the cash will allow in accordance to the instructions given, where an Each Way bet on a selection cannot be fully covered the Win part will be given preference.
    2. Staking instructions for the Any To Come bet must be clearly and explicitly stated, stipulating the stake to be re-invested. Where a specific staking is not given the staking on the selection immediately preceding will be invested. Should the preceding bet be an accumulative one then the maximum individual staking of that bet will determine Any To Come.
    3. When Any To Come wagers goes onto Win or Each Way Doubles. Trebles and Accumulators, only the amount in hand from the original instructions will be invested. 'The Win part will be settled first in its entirety and the Place portion last. Bearing in mind that the Win part of the bet takes complete precedence, where there is insufficient in hand to cover either the Win part or Place part in its entirety then the amount in hand will be apportioned to cover the part of the bet which will be affected.
    4. In an 'Up and Down' wager when both selections are entered in the same race, the bet will become a single on each selection and the Any To Come part of the bet will be void. If, however~ either of the selections are entered for another race it will be assumed that this is the race for which the wager on that selection was intended. We accept other Conditional bets, i.e. 'Bets in running', Bets awaiting the outcome of Stewards Enquiry etc., subject to our discretion.

    IF LOSE, IF WIN, STOP AT A WINNER

    or the purpose of settling, the words "If Lose" (i.e. the selection does not occupy first place), will be interpreted as "If Lose or non- runner", and "If Win" (ie. the selection does occupy first place), will be read as "If Win or non-runner". Stop-at-a-Winner bets continue until one of the selections occupies first place. the selections will be settled in the order given on the slip. Winners that dead heat will besettled in accordance with Rule 7.


    12. DOUBLE ENGAGEMENTS


    1. For single commissions when the selection is Doubly Engaged and it is timed by the Client, it will be considered a wager for the race timed only. Should that selection be untimed or incorrectly timed, then the wager is deemed to be for the first race in which the selection runs after the bet was placed.
    2. If two selections, one of which is Doubly Engaged, are included in a Double, Treble or Accumulator, but run in the same race, then the selection which is Doubly Engaged will be automatically timed for the race in which the entries do not clash. Single commissions will be treated as entirely separate bets in accordance with paragraph (a).

    13. WALK-OVERS & VOID RACES


    These count as races but any horse so involved will be treated as non-runners.

    RE-STARTED RACES - HORSES

    14. POSTPONEMENTS


    If a day's programme be postponed then all bets will be declared void. If for any reason, races are put back, the settling of all bets will always be ruled by the time advertised in the Racing Post e.g. if the Client requests the 2.00 race and that race is run at 2.30 the bet will stand for the 2.00 race as advertised.


    15. BOARD PRICES & EARLY PRICES


    We accept bets for named selections and Trap Numbers at current Board Prices as transmitted by SIS. Where a Board Price is taken on selection, the Board Price will apply to that selection in all Win and Each Way bets throughout the bet, unless otherwise instructed by the Client. Each Way bets at Board Prices are governed by our SP Place betting terms, determined by the number of runners coming under STARTER'S ORDERS and not by the number of declared runners when the price was laid. Clients wishing to bet at Board Price must request the price when placing their bet. We do not lay 'BAR' prices, nor do we accept instructions such as 'First Show' for a Board Price prior to the transmission of a 'Show' of betting for the race - any such bets given in error will be settled at Starting Price. Should a wrong price be given in error by a member of staff then the bet will be settled at the correct price at the time the bet was struck or at Starting Price, whichever is the greater. Should a horse be withdrawn whereby Tattersall's Rule 4 would apply, then no Board Price can be laid after the time of withdrawal, unless the 'Market is reformed'.
