LM Bookmaker Online Terms and Conditions
Please note the following rule regarding Related Bets:
4.21 Multiple bets will not be accepted where the outcome of one part of the bet contributes to the outcome of another part of the bet. Commonly known as a Related Bet (eg) Crusaders - 7.5 points and Crusaders to win the match. If you inadvertently or deliberately back a related contingency in a multiple bet and it wins as a whole, the bet will be recalculated by equally dividing the stake unit where the bet is related. This applies to winning multiple bets only. Any multiple bets that do not win as a whole will be treated as losing bets. LM Bookmaker reserves the right to cancel or modify any bet of this nature. The outcome of your win due to a related bet is now decided by single bets on the related legs where your stake is divided equally between the related legs. For example if you wager R1000 on a double - Sharks to win the match @ 5/10 / Sharks to win by 1-12 points @ 2/1. This is deemed a related bet which works out to 7/2 and the bet will be decided by diving your stake equally on the related legs. Therefore your bet will become a single 250/500 Sharks to win the match and a single 1000/500 Sharks to win by 1-12 points.
Please note the following rule regarding Match Fixing:
In the event that LM Bookmaker should suspect that a specific sporting event has been manipulated (hereinafter referred to as “Match Fixing”) then it shall be entitled to delay payment of all betting transactions which relate to the Match Fixing sporting event and/or a specific transaction within the sporting event.
LM Bookmaker shall be entitled to delay payment of successful betting transactions arising from the Match Fixing events indicated above for a period of 6 months or for such later period if the sporting event is the subject matter of continued investigations by the relevant sporting authority and/or gambling authority.
In the event that the relevant sporting authority and/or gambling authority determine the existence of Match Fixing then the betting transaction shall be void and the stake shall be refunded.
In the event that the relevant sporting authority and/or gambling authority does not determine the existence of Match Fixing within 6 months, or LM Bookmaker has not been successful in furnishing facts or evidence of Match Fixing then the betting transaction concerned shall be payable by it.
