CURRENCY OPTIONS AVAILABLE AT OYAWIN
Nigeria Naira (NGN)
Sports and Special Event Betting
We accept bets/wagers for sporting and other special events that are advertised on the Website. All such bets/wagers are subject to the rules applicable to each sport, e.g. Soccer, Tennis, Boxing, etc. In a match between two teams where the participants are named, if any player is replaced prior to the match starting, all match bets placed prior to the change will be void, win, or lose. Our general betting rules will apply to any situations not covered by the special rules.
The result of a match or event will be determined on the day of its conclusion for betting purposes, subject to confirmation by the relevant sport's governing body. Any subsequent enquiry that may result in an overturned decision will not be recognised by Oyawin, and the original settlement of bets will stand.
If the venue for a sporting event is changed, all bets placed based on the original venue will be made void and stakes refunded, unless otherwise stated.
Minimum bets amount
The minimum bet amount for each order is the relevant value defined below based on the currency of the user’s account: NGN 100
The maximum winning for each bet is the relevant value defined below based on the currency of the user’s account: NGN2,500,000
The daily maximum potential winnings per customer in any 24-hour period is capped at NGN 2,500,000
Related Contingency Betting
Multiple bets which combine different selections within the same event are not accepted where the outcome of one affect or is affected by the other.
For example, in a football match involving Arsenal and Everton:
If the odds for Arsenal to win at home against Everton are 2.00 and the correct score odds for Arsenal to win 1-0 is 8.00, by having the multiple bet of Arsenal to win and the correct score to be 1-0, a customer would be getting 16.00 for a bet that should have odds of 8.00, as if Arsenal win 1-0 they would automatically have won the match.
An exception to this rule is where special odds are offered for the combined eventuality, e.g. First Player to Score/Correct Score, known as a Scorecast.
When the related parts of a bet are resolved at different times but still within the same tournament, the bet will be settled as instructed, with the price of the second or subsequent selection being determined at each individual stage.
For example, a multiple bet of:
Nadal to win the semi-final of Wimbledon; and Nadal to win the Wimbledon tournament outright.
As the odds of the second selection depends on the outcome of the first, the odds of Nadal winning the tournament at the time the bet was struck cannot be used to calculate the multiple bets, and the correct odd after the initial selection is completed will be attributed instead.
Multiple bets which combine different selections within different events are also not accepted where the outcome of one affect or is affected by the other.
For example, a multiple bet selecting:
Formosa to win the 2000 Guineas; and Formosa to win the Derby.
As the odds for Formosa to win the Derby depend on whether she wins the 2000 Guineas, the odds for her to win the Derby at the time the bet was struck cannot be used to calculate the multiple bets. A special price to win both races will be quoted instead.
In the case of all multiples including selections with related outcomes, if a bet is taken inadvertently Oyawin reserves the right to void part of or the whole of the bet.
