In case of disputes, the recording will be played and the wager as confirmed on the recording will be deemed as final. All online transactions will be saved onto a file and the file will be saved on a back-up system. In all cases of dispute, both management and the player agree that the backed-up file shall serve as the final authority in the dispute and all wagers will be adjusted accordingly. Claims must be submitted within 24 hours from the time the wager was made.

7.     TROPICSPORTS reserves the right to request valid documentation from a customer to confirm their identity. Clients opening an account with TROPICSPORTS agree to provide, on demand, the necessary documents: valid ID and copy of a utility bill with the client’s name for proof of address. The identification document must be a government issued ID (Copy of driver’s license, state ID or passport) and a copy of a utility bill with the client's name for proof of address. Failure to supply this information may cause the suspension of the account and may affect the release of funds.

8.     All accounts must have a correct contact phone number, email address and physical address listed in their account information. If there is a change of address, please notify TROPICSPORTS within 30 days and provide an ID or utility bill with the new address. Use of invalid contact information may lead to possible forfeiture of any/all winnings and bonuses.

9.     TROPICSPORTS reserves the right at any time to adjust or refuse any wager or transaction, in the interest of correcting a human or technical error, or any fraudulent intent of the member as interpreted by TROPICSPORTS.

10.   TROPICSPORTS reserves the right to adjust the limits and/or suspend wagering privileges on any individual account without prior written or verbal notice.

11.   Any accounts that have been suspended or cancelled by TROPICSPORTS must have prior management approval to reactivate their account. If it is determined that a previously banned player has opened an additional account or gains access to another account through false or misleading information, that party risks forfeiture of all funds.

13.   Any customer that is to be deemed betting as part of a syndicate or betting group risks account closure and forfeiture of all account winnings.

16.   Each client is responsible for maintaining the secrecy of his/her betting account number and password, and should make every effort to prevent the use of his/her personal account number, and password by any third party. Any transactions entered with the account holder's account number and password will be considered an official transaction. If a client suspects a third party may have his/her account number and password, the client must contact TROPICSPORTS and change his/her password.Upon signup, each client is required to submit a secondary password used for account changes and withdrawals. This secondary password must be used to change a wagering password or request a withdrawal or transfer of funds from his/her account.

17.   Accounts with aggregate winnings of more than $5,000 are considered to be playing on 'house money'. Customers deemed to be playing with 'house money' may not be eligible for special promotions or perks provided by TROPICSPORTS.

18.   All new accounts are subject to a period of review, and during this time, they may not be eligible to participate in specific promotions offered by TROPICSPORTS.

19.   Internet wagers must be placed through the user interface provided by TROPICSPORTS. Any internet wagering through other means, including the use of a 'robot' player or by manipulation of our systems, is strictly forbidden. If it is deemed that a robot was utilized or the use of non-approved client software is detected, the offending party risks forfeiture of funds and Management reserves the right to invalidate all such wagers retroactively, cancel the player's account, or take any other appropriate action. TROPICSPORTS will employ the services of a 3rd party provider to make a determination where foul play is suspected.

20.   If a player believes that TROPICSPORTS has posted an erroneous line or schedule, the player should notify TROPICSPORTS immediately to verify if the line and/or schedule are correct.

21.   Immediately upon discovery, wagers placed on an event with an obviously mistaken line resulting from human or technical error will be graded as “No Action”. If a wager with an erroneous line is not voided before the event begins, TROPICSPORTS reserves the right to remedy the odds to a fair market price which would have been available at the time the wager was placed. This price adjustment may be applied during or after an event.

22.   A bet made after an event begins, based on occurrences that have developed while in-play, is considered a 'past-post' and therefore invalid. The same applies for all horse bets, as they must be placed before post time or else are invalid. This also applies for all regular games and any live wagering events. All events intended for in-play offering will be noted as such on the wagering option.

23.   TROPICSPORTS reserves the right to reverse the incorrect application of funds into an account due to human or system/software error. Additional funds that were not intended to be credited into a customer's account will be reverted upon discovery of the inaccuracy. Any additional earnings from those funds are subject to voiding/forfeiture.

24.   At TROPICSPORTS, we strive to treat our clients with the respect and courtesy they deserve. We also require that our clients reciprocate the gesture to our employees. Any abusive language or treatment via phone, chat or email will cause immediate termination of the TROPICSPORTS account and all remaining funds will be refunded to the account holder.

25.   We reserve the right to limit the number of times a client may participate in a promotion. Identity of participants will be determined on the basis of all or any combination of the following: Name, mailing address, email address, IP address, credit or debit card number and any forms of identification which may be required.

26.   TROPICSPORTS has designed its services to protect customer privacy and maintain confidentiality.

27.   All transactions are processed in highly secure 128-bit encryption.

28.   Time Changes and Injury Reports are unofficial and subject to changes. It is a member's responsibility to question and clarify any event not covered or rules he/she does not understand prior to placing any wagers.

29.   Any wagers deemed as correlated may be voided at TROPICSPORTS discretion. Examples of correlated wagers are but not limited to the following:- Team total to a team total in the same game. Includes all quarters and halves in the game. - Team total to a run line, money line or total in the same game. Any side or run line/puck line of a quarter, half or game to another side of the same game in a Parlay or any type of If bet.

30.   Regardless of the published header, all games and events will have action as long as the two teams/sides are correct. A game/match will also keep action regardless of the ‘League Heading’ and/or ‘League Offering’ that is associated with the matchup. For example, two teams from the same league playing for a Cup; if the matchup is mistakenly placed in the League Offering, the game/match will still have action, as long as the matchup is correct.

Sports Rules

Baseball

Sports Rules of Baseball

  • For all Moneyline bets, a game is considered official after five innings of play (four and a half if the home team is winning). Thereafter, if a game is canceled or suspended the winner is determined by the score after the last full inning of play. If the home team scores to tie or takes the lead in the bottom half of the inning, the winner is then determined by the score at the time the game is canceled.
  • When betting on totals and/or run-lines the game must go nine innings (eight and a half if the home team is winning). Extra innings are included in the final totals. Listed pitchers must start the game. In case of disputes the ruling made by "The Mirage" sports book in Las Vegas will apply.
  • Any wager on a baseball game that is postponed prior to the start of the match will be cancelled.
  • All postseason games (Wild Card, Divisional Series, Championship Series, World Series) are not considered official until a winner is declared. If a post season game begins and then is delayed to a later date, all wagers will have action with the final score being graded as the official result.
  • All Baseball games the Home team is listed on the bottom unless specified. First 5 Innings:

1.     Once 5 full innings have been completed, all wagers on the first half (5 innings) will stand.

2.     A game does not have to go 9 complete innings, nor does a game need to be completed for the bet to be graded as the bet only covers the first five innings. Whatever occurs after five innings have been played is not relevant to the bet.

3.     If a game does not go five full innings, all first-half wagers will be canceled. If the game should be deemed officially over after only 4½ innings, all first half wagers will still be considered no action.

4.     No parlays between spreads and totals on the same game in the first five innings are allowed.

5.     All first-half wagers must list both pitchers. If either listed pitcher does not start, all wagers on the first half will be canceled.


Second Half:

  • For wagering purposes, second half is considered to begin at the top of the 6th inning; regardless how many extra innings are played. To be official teams must play at least four full innings, or three and a half innings if the home team is leading.
  • Action:
  • No wagers are canceled for a listed pitcher change. If one of the original pitchers listed does not start the game (throw the first pitch of the game, not counting warm-ups), there will be a new line and the price on your play will be automatically adjusted.
  • List One Pitcher:
  • If the pitcher you specified does not start the game, you have "No Action". Whether or not the other pitcher listed starts the game is irrelevant.
  • List Both Pitchers:
  • Both pitchers listed need to start the game. If either or both pitchers do not start the game you have no action.

Totals And Run lines:

  • Both pitchers are automatically listed (both must start for action). This is the only way you can play totals and run lines. If either or both pitchers do not start the game you have "No Action".

Regular Season Baseball Series Wagers:

  • Wagers on baseball series are based on the first three games played of each series.
  • At least two of the first three series games must be played for wagers to have action.
  • If only one of the first three games is postponed or canceled, series wagers stand as written.
  • If two of the first three games are postponed or canceled, all wagers on that series will be graded as no action and all monies refunded.
  • A called game will count toward a series wager provided it is officially declared a regulation game.
  • Pitchers cannot be listed for series wagers; all wagers will have action regardless of the starting pitchers.
  • Grand Salami: The Grand Salami will be decided by the total runs scored in all games scheduled in the given league for the given day. All scheduled games must be official and complete to be considered for the Grand Salami total. If any scheduled game is canceled or stopped, all wagers on the Grand Salami will be canceled. All wagers will have action regardless of the starting pitchers.
  • All MLB preseason games will be graded the same as regular season MLB games.For wagering purposes, the bottom team is considered the home team.

Non-MLB Baseball

  • Regardless of their completion date, NCAA baseball tournament, NCAA softball tournament, international tournament and youth league tournament games that start and are interrupted, will have action with the final result score.
  • Any baseball, softball, or little league game ending early as a result of a mercy rule will have action on all wagers (unless otherwise noted).
  • Japanese Baseball: if a match is declared a draw, all bets are valid, side bets will push.
  • In Mexican Baseball and AAA Baseball, a double header game may be scheduled for 7 innings only. For grading purposes, we will consider 7 inning games final when played as part of a double header.

Note: Any rules not mentioned in this section will be governed by the General Rules.

 

Basketball

Sports Rules of Basketball

  • Any postponed, suspended, or rescheduled events will be considered no action. Overtime periods in college and professional games are counted in the final score. On second-half wagers, overtime is included as part of the second-half score in both sides and totals wagers. On fourth quarter wagers, overtime is not included as part of the fourth quarter side or total. For wagering purposes, the game must go at least 43 minutes of play for NBA and 35 minutes of play for College and International Basketball. For European and International basketball, the home team will be listed on top.
  • All 82 games must be played for action on regular season wins.
  • In general, the home team in International Basketball is displayed on the top, but in case of matches played on a “Neutral Court”, either team can be placed on Top.

Note: Any rules not mentioned in this section will be governed by the General Rules.

Hockey

Sports Rules of Hockey

  • For NHL and NCAA the game becomes official (action) after 55 minutes of play. Goals scored during overtime are included for wagers on the game, but are not included on wagers for the 3rd period.
  • If a game requires a shoot-out to determine the winner, one goal will be awarded to the winner for the final score (regardless of how many goals scored in the shoot-out), which will be recognized for the total goals scored as well as the winning team.
  • Game must be played on scheduled date and site.
  • Grand Salami: The Grand Salami will be decided by the total goals scored in all games scheduled in the given league for the given day. All scheduled games must play their three full periods. If any scheduled game is canceled or stopped before three full periods are played, all wagers on the Grand Salami will be canceled.
  • European, International and non-NHL games will have the home team listed on top. The result of the game is decided after regulation time is over (Away/Home/Draw/Total). Overtime and shoot-outs are not included.
  • In general, the home team in International Hockey is displayed on the top, but in case of matches played at Neutral Sites/Rinks, either team can be placed on Top.
  • In American Hockey League the result of the game is decided after regulation time is final, the Home team is on the Bottom.
  • In Canadian Leagues the result of the game is decided after regulation time is final.
  • 3-way money line wagering on NHL offers a draw line as well as both sides. In the event of a draw, example: (1-1), all wagers on either side will be graded as a loss. The result of the wager is decided after Regulation time. Over Time and Shootouts are not taken into consideration for 3-way NHL money line bets.

Note: Any rules not mentioned in this section will be governed by the General Rules.

 

Football

Sports Rules of Football

  • Any postponed, suspended, or rescheduled events will be considered no action. Overtime periods are counted in the final score of both college and professional games. For second-half wagers, overtime is included as part of the second-half for sides and totals wagers. Overtime is not included on wagers for fourth quarter sides or totals. For wagering purposes, the game must go at least 55 minutes of play.



  • If play is suspended before the completion of 55 minutes and not resumed the same day, all bets on the full game will be graded as no action and all monies refunded. If part of the game has finished (i.e. first quarter, first half, second quarter, or third quarter) those bets will be graded as action, provided the entire period has finished.



  • A correlated parlay is a bet that is tied into another where if one bet wins, the odds of the other winning is increased. We do not allow correlated parlays, but in some cases the system may allow the bet to be placed. Management maintains the right to void wagers placed in violation of these rules. 

    The generally applied parameters for a correlated parlay in football are as follows: 
    (1) Full game spread exceeds 30% of the full game total 
    (2) First or Second Half spread exceeds 25% or the half time total.

  • The result of the game is decided after 90 minutes of play plus injury time. Extra time and penalty kicks are not taken into consideration for soccer bets unless otherwise stipulated.
  • Full game and 2nd half soccer wagers (Asian Handicap, money lines and totals) are official after full time (90 minutes regulation + injury time).

Golf

Sports Rules of Golf

  • If the start of a round is delayed, or if play during a round is suspended, all pending wagers will remain valid for 48 hours. If the postponement lasts more than 48 hours, all pending wagers will be canceled.
  • Wagers will be settled using the official tournament and match results (including final match correct score and individual match betting). This includes a match which finishes early, either by agreement of the players or because of injury.
  • Odds to win betting “the field" includes all players not offered by name. All outright bets are settled on the player winning the trophy. The results of play-offs are taken into account. If a tournament does not go the specified number of completed holes (usually 72) and is shortened by the tournament officials, the leader at the end as specified by the officials will be the winner.

Wagering Types

Straights

Spread

The Spread is a type of line that consists on an amount of predetermined points (or goals) you add or subtract to a team or player (side), to even them out. This is also known as handicap.

With the spread, both teams get balanced with equal chances of winning the bet: the favorite’s advantage is reduced, and the underdog’s disadvantage is evened out.

You can bet the Spread straight up on a desired side (team/player) or total. The juice of the wager is 10/11 or $110 to win $100.

Example:

COWBOYS -3½
FALCONS +3½

If you take a straight wager on the COWBOYS -3½ then the COWBOYS must win by 4 points for the wager to win. If the straight wager is on the FALCONS +3½ then the FALCONS cannot lose by more than 3 points for the wager to win. Had the spread on the above example be 3, if the game landed on 3 points, then the game would be a “PUSH” and result in “NO ACTION”.


Moneyline

The Moneyline is the value given to a Side and it indicates how favored (or not) a line is by setting a price on it; thus, the more favored a team is, the more you will have to lay on it to win the same amount.

You may pick the Moneyline straight up and select which team is going to win regardless of the spread.

Example:

COWBOYS -185 
FALCONS +165

If you wager on the COWBOYS -185 you lay $185 to win $100. If you wager on the FALCONS +165 you lay $100 to win $165.

Spreads may also be complemented with Moneylines.

Total Over-Under

The Total is mainly based on the spread. Wagers with Totals comprehend the total points or goals scored in a game by both teams. You may select OVER or UNDER the posted line. The juice of the wager is 10/11 (or 110/100).

Example:

COWBOYS 34 -110 
FALCONS 34 -110

The TOTAL is at 34, and if you place a wager on the UNDER 34, the combined total score of both teams must fall UNDER 34 pts. If you place a wager for OVER 34, the combined total score of both teams must go OVER 34 pts. If the combined total score falls on 34pts, then the wager is considered as a "PUSH" and there would be "NO ACTION".


Buying & Selling Points

This feature allows you to buy or sell points on the spread to your advantage. It can be used on your Straight wagers and Parlays at a set up money line (Regular Juice is -110):

Example:

COLTS -6

After buying ½ point = COLTS - 5½ -120 (10 cents)
After buying 1 point = COLTS -5 -130 (20 cents)
After buying 1½ points = COLTS -4½ -140 (30 cents)
After buying 2 points = COLTS -4 -150 (40 cents)

- Basketball: Sides and Totals
- Football: Sides and Totals
- Baseball: Totals
- Hockey: Totals

Prices vary per line; please check the specific sport or event before placing any wagers.


Run Lines

This is a type of wager in Baseball that combines point spread (number of runs scored) with moneyline. Its action is based on listed pitchers; and thus, if there is a pitching change, wagers will be graded as NO ACTION. The pitcher must throw at least once (without including warm-ups).

Example:

BRAVES – F. Freeman +1½ -140 
ASTROS – D. Keuchel -1½ +120

Option A:
A $100 wager on the ASTROS’ run-line would read: ASTROS - D. Keuchel -1½ $100/120. The ASTROS need to win the game by 2 or more runs.

Option B:
A $100 wager on the BRAVES’ run-line would read: BRAVES - F. Freeman +1½ $140/100. The BRAVES can lose the game by up to 1 run and the wager would still be considered a winner.


Puck-Lines

This is a type of wager in Hockey that combines point spread (number of goals scored) with money line.

Example:

OILERS +1½ -160 
BRUINS -1½ +140

Option A:
A $100 wager on the OILERS’ puck line would read: OILERS +1½ $160/100. The OILERS can lose the game by up to 1 goal and the wager would still be considered a winner.

Option B:
A $100 wager on the BRUINS’ puck line would read: BRUINS -1½ $100/140. The BRUINS need to win the game by 2 or more goals.

If the Saints lose, the wager stops there and is scored a loser -$110; if the Saints win +$100

the wager continues to the Panthers wager; if the Panthers win, the wager is a $200 winner;

if the Panthers lose the wager is a $10 loss. If the Cowboys win by exactly 5,

then there will be no action on the Carolina Panthers and the 110 will go back to your account.
