Rules

Although we have set out the rules below to protect Lunarbets and our users from abuse, we will always take a common sense approach in dealing with any of your issues. Please feel free to contact us to discuss or learn more about any of the rules below.

Obviously “Bad” Lines or Odds

Lunarbets reserves the right to cancel any bet that was made on an obviously “bad” line or odd.

Bets Made After The Event Has Started

Although we will make our best effort to prevent the listing of any started event, Lunarbets reserves the right to cancel any bet that was made after the event started.

This rule does not constitute an opportunity to “freeroll” the Sportsbook. Bets made a few seconds into a match in which no significant events are taking place (i.e. the first seconds of an e-sports Starcraft match) does not give cause for bets to be cancelled.

All judgment is at the sole discretion of Lunarbets. A player will never benefit by betting a started match with the intention to reference this rule when it loses.

Grading Bets

Bets are graded only after the event is final.

Overturned and Protested Decisions

The winner of an event will be determined on the date of the event’s conclusion. Lunarbets does not recognize any “overturned” or “protested” decisions.

Age Restrictions

No one under the age of 18 is allowed to make a bet.

Bet Limits

Minimum and maximum bet amounts on all events will be determined by Lunarbets and are subject to change without prior written notice. Lunarbets also reserves the right to adjust the limits on individual accounts.

Personal Information

Lunarbets assumes that the information given upon sign up, settings, and cashier is accurate and up-to-date.

Incorrect Account Balance

In the event that funds are credited to a customer’s account in error, the customer should notify Lunarbets as soon as possible. Bets made with these erroneous funds are subject to cancellation.

Placing Bets

Members are responsible for their own account transactions. Please be sure to review your bets for any mistakes prior to pressing the confirm button. Once a transaction is complete, it cannot be changed.

Lunarbets does not take responsibility for any missing or duplicate bets made by the client. Clients may review their bets on the Betting History page after each transaction to ensure that all confirmed wagers were accepted.

Disputes

Disputes must be submitted within seven (7) days from the date the bet in question has been graded. No claims will be honored after this period.

Account Security

Each client is wholly responsible for maintaining the secrecy of his or her login credentials. Any transaction confirmed by third parties shall stand. In the event that a customer suspects a third party may have their password, the customer may ask Lunarbets to temporarily lock their account.

Betting on Ties

In some games where a draw (or tie) price is offered (i.e., most soccer games), if the event results in a tie, only the bettors that bet the draw will be paid as winners. Those who wagered on either participant to win will lose their bet.

In games where a draw (or tie) price is not offered, bets will be refunded unless a price on the draw is offered.

Cancelling Accounts

Although rare, Lunarbets reserves the right to suspend or cancel a customer account without prior notice and return all funds.

Contact Information

Lunarbets identifies and communicates with our clients via the email address registered in their account.

It is the responsibility of the customer to maintain an active and unique email account and to ensure that this email address is up to date on the settings page. Each client is responsible for maintaining the security of his or her email account to prevent the use by any third party.
