How are Soccer bets settled?

Overview

All markets are settled based on the result at the end of regular time (including injury/stoppage time). Extra time and penalty shootouts are not included unless indicated. Learn more about DraftKings Sportsbook Soccer House Rules.

Do my bets carry into Extra Time?

No. All pre-match and live bets are for regular time only, unless otherwise stated. When applicable, there will be specific extra time markets available.

For matches where a winner must be determined, if the match finishes as a tie after regular time (90 minutes + injury/stoppage time) there can be extra time or penalties. 

Can I bet on a team to win including Extra Time or Penalties?

Yes, these markets include:

  • To Advance / To Qualify.
  • To Win Cup.
  • Method of Victory.

My player was injured or subbed during the match, will my bet be voided?

No. If your selected player starts the match, it will be deemed as action and bets will stand.

Pre-live Same Game Parlays

Settlement of these bets will be based on the following:

  • In the event a pre-live Same Game Parlay contains a selection applicable to a player who did not participate in the match (“Soccer Non-Participating Player”), the selection containing the Soccer Non-Participating Player will be voided and the pre-live Same Game Parlay will be repriced based on the last odds available to DraftKings prior to the start of the match. In the event all selections in a pre-live Same Game Parlay are Soccer Non-Participating Players, then the whole bet will be settled as void.
  • In the event a pre-live Same Game Parlay contains at least one (1) selection, other than a selection containing a Soccer Non-Participating Player, which is settled as void or push, then the whole pre-live Same Game Parlay will be settled as void, irrespective of whether the pre-live Same Game Parlay contains other winning or losing selections, unless the match associated with the pre-live Same Game Parlay is abandoned.
  • For all player markets, selected players must take part in the match during or before the relevant period or before settlement has been determined for bets to have action (e.g. bets are not automatically voided in the event a selected player does not start the match), otherwise the player is a Soccer Non-Participating Player.
  • In the event the match associated with the pre-live Same Game Parlay is abandoned, and the pre-live Same Game Parlay contains an already losing selection at the time of abandonment, the pre-live Same Game Parlay will be settled as lost, otherwise the pre-live Same Game Parlay will be settled as void.
  • In the event a selection is a tie, and no tie outcome is offered for that selection (for example “Race to X Goals” where neither team reaches the number of goals), then the pre-live Same Game Parlay will be settled as lost.

Live Same Game Parlays

Settlement of these bets will be based on the following:

  • In the event a live Same Game Parlay contains a selection which is settled as void or push, the live Same Game Parlay will be repriced based on the odds available on the DraftKings website at the time of bet placement. In the event all selections in a live Same Game Parlay are settled as void or push, then the whole bet will be settled as void.
  • All Soccer specific rules also apply to live Same Game Parlays.

What is an Asian Handicap?
