Once a game has been completed, the organiser of the sport/event (e.g. FIFA for international football matches, UEFA for European football matches, the English FA for English Premier League fixtures) would automatically compile an official match report containing the full details of the event. Once published – and this normally takes place within an hour of completion of the event – this would be used by our sportsbook provider to settle bets. Usually, it only takes a few minutes for this match report to be published and for bets to be settled once a game has been completed.
Bets are not settled based on media reports or live score tracking websites.
Not all match reports are published immediately though as sometimes there would be a delay by the organiser of the sport/event to collate and publish official match reports. However, once these are released we would always move to settle bets accordingly.
