Match result

  1. ’Match result’ refers to the outcome of a match in ‘normal time’ or 90 minutes + injury time, denoted as 1 | X | 2 where 1 = home win, X = draw & 2 = away win.
  2. Relevant rules highlighted in the ‘Making predictions’ section apply.

Both to score

  1. For the ’Both to score’ market you simply have to decide if you think both teams will score or not. For ‘Yes’ to win, both teams must score. For ‘No’ to win, one or both teams must not score to win.
  2. Relevant rules highlighted in the ‘Making predictions’ section apply.

2.5 goal-line

  1. For the ’2.5 goal-line’ market you simply have to decide if you think there will be over or under 2.5 goals in the match. For over 2.5 to win, you need a minimum of 3 goals in the game to win. For under 2.5 goals you need 2 goals or less to win.
  2. Relevant rules highlighted in the ‘Making predictions’ section apply.

Double chance

Let’s say Man Utd are at home to Liverpool & you think Utd will NOT win — but you’re not sure whether to choose the draw or Liverpool to win in the Match Result market. With Double Chance you don’t have to choose — you can simply choose 2X which covers both Liverpool to win & the draw!
  2. Relevant rules highlighted in the ‘Making predictions’ section apply.

Make predictions

  1. All predictions are made in accordance with our rules & terms and conditions.
  2. Odds displayed are subject to fluctuation as the markets move. Predictions made will be settled using the prices displayed at the point in time when you submit your prediction.
  3. n/a prices: typically this means a price is not available or there is an issue with our 3rd party data provider. In such instances, we will manually update prices after a game has ended.
  4. When prices are updated manually, the price allocated to a market runner is determined by Futnut & our decision is final.
  5. We endeavour to ensure that match dates & kick-off times are accurate. We use third-party data providers so we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy. We do not accept responsibility for any issues arising as a result of a third-party error.
  6. All predictions are based on ’normal time’ & results are based on the outcome at ’full-time’. Both relate to the result after 90 minutes of play — this includes any injury/stoppage time added on by the match official at the end of normal time. Extra time & penalty shoot-out’s do not count.
  7. If you make a prediction on a match that is subsequently voided, abandoned or rescheduled we will follow the rules of the relevant Football Association authority with regard to settlement of the event.
  8. When a match has been scheduled by the relevant governing body to run for a shorter period of time, such as 60, 70 or 80 minutes, predictions placed on these matches will be settled at the end of the agreed match length. This includes any injury/stoppage time added on by the match official at the end of normal time. Extra time and penalty shoot-out’s do not count.
  9. When a match is played at a neutral venue, the team listed on the left will be classed as the home team for settlement purposes.
  10. Settlement/updating of predictions & ranking positions will occur right after the match ends as long as there are no outage issues with our service providers.

Private Leagues

  1. The Private Leagues feature enables you to create your own competitions — challenge your friends & see who really knows their football.
  2. When creating a Private League, you decide the eligible competitions, how long the league runs for, you can add an entry fee & create a side pot.
  3. You can also nominate a beneficiary & raise money for a cause you care about.
  4. Private Leagues with an entry fee/side pot: Futnut does not collect any entry fees, nor do we hold the side prize pot. The responsibility for collecting entries fees, holding the side prize pot & distributing prizes lies solely with the Private League administrator/creator. By using the Private Leagues feature or participating in Private League, you acknowledge that Futnut Ltd is in no way responsible for the running of any Private League, nor are we liable for paying out prize pots for private leagues that are not created by Futnut.
  5. In the event that a Private League administrator/creator stops managing or deletes a private league they created, players in the league will need to contact the administrator directly if they have any questions or concerns.
  6. Managing a Private League:
    1. Give your league a name & add an image.
    2. Select the start & end dates.
    3. Select the eligible competitions.
    4. Set the prize structure;
      • ▪ Set entry fee, if you wish to have a side pot.
      • ▪ Set a management fee — this is optional. Fixed value or a % of the pot.
    5. Nominate a charity/beneficiary for your league — this is optional. Fixed value or a % of the pot.
    6. Decide the prize structure — how many winning positions & how much each position wins — fixed value or a % of the pot.
    7. When a member of your league pays the entry fee mark them as "paid’ in the league table view & this will update the prize pot.
    8. The league prize structure & eligible competitions cannot be edited once there are paid members in the league or after the league has started.

Odds

The odds for your predictions will be deemed to be the odds on-site at the time your prediction is submitted. Odds on-site are refreshed at least once every 5 minutes. Predictions will be settled at the odds indicated against your prediction in My Account. Always ensure your predictions have been submitted correctly by checking them in the My Account view. You can change your predictions right up until kick-off — after the game has kicked off you can no longer edit, change or delete your predictions.

Information

Although we make every effort to ensure all information displayed on-site (fixtures, prices etc) is correct, we rely on third parties for this information & cannot guarantee 100% accuracy at all times. Information, such as venue, score & time of game should be used as a guide — if you are unsure as to the accuracy of any information let us know via the contact page that can be accessed from your profile menu in My Account.

Postponed Matches

When a match is postponed, all predictions placed on that match will be void. A postponement is defined as when a match does not take place on the scheduled day and is not replayed within one calendar day after that. A postponed match can occur for a variety of reasons such as inclement weather, security/policing, power failure, crowd trouble and many others. If a postponed match is not resolved or replayed within 24 hours after it should have taken place all of the predictions on this event will be voided.

Abandoned Matches

When a match is abandoned, the following rules apply when settling predictions: 1) An abandonment is deemed to be where a match is halted before the completion of the allotted match time and not played out to a conclusion on the same day. 2) A match that is interrupted (e.g. inclement weather), but then plays to a conclusion on the same day will not count as an abandonment and predictions will be settled on the outcome at the end of the match. 3) When a match is abandoned, no replays or awarding of the result by governing bodies will count towards prediction settlements. There are some exceptions that relate to specific tournaments. Predictions will stand if a match is played within two calendar days of the originally scheduled fixture in the following competitions:

  1. • FIFA World Cup (Qualification and Finals),
  2. • UEFA European Championships (Qualification and Finals),
  3. • African Cup of Nations (Qualification and Finals),
  4. • Confederations Cup (Qualification and Finals),
  5. • UEFA Europa League or Champions League (Qualification and Finals),
  6. • and any UK domestic cup final/playoff match
  7. • or Spanish domestic match.
  8. • One other exception is the Olympic Games, where predictions will stand on a match as long as it is played before the closing ceremony.

Obvious odds errors

  1. We do all that we can to avoid errors, however, sometimes errors will occur in data feeds. Obvious errors (also referred to as palpable errors) or omissions in respect of the announcing, publishing or marking of odds or results sometimes occur despite our efforts to ensure total accuracy.
  2. In the event that we make an obvious error, which occurs when the odds offered are materially different from that available in the general market and/or are clearly incorrect given the probability of the event occurring, we reserve the right to amend that error and settle predictions at the correct result/odds/terms applicable when the prediction was struck.
  3. If there is an obvious error impacting predictions where the event has not yet started we will fix the error by applying the correct odds/terms.

Duplicate fixtures

  1. In the event of a duplicate fixture, we will remove the duplicate game & endeavour to amend impacted predictions manually.

Duplicate accounts

  1. Players are not permitted to use multiple accounts or shared accounts. This includes accessing duplicate / shared accounts via different devices. We reserve the right to remove duplicate accounts if we detect untoward behaviour.
