Postponed or Abandoned Fixtures

In the event one of your squares is postponed or abandoned before or during the game, we mark your ticket as cancelled and the fee paid is refunded to your account. During bad weather periods, or rounds of the cup competitions it sometimes unavoidable for games to be effected. Goals have to be official to count, so if your pick scores a goal early in the game, but the fixture is later abandoned, the card will still be cancelled and your stake returned, unless you have won a prize prior to the match abandonment. In this case you will not be refunded, but you will receive your winnings. Postponed or Abandoned Squares go BROWN. Prior to kick off of the games on your ticket a button appears "Cancel & Refund", which you can use to credit your account and cancel the ticket, to then enable you to enter the pool with different selections.

If in any Match two teams are listed as alternatives in either the left and/or the right of the Match Listing, this will mean that the relevant team will be decided by the outcome of a football game played before the Game Date. This will become a Void Match if the relevant team is not decided before that Game Date.
6. If any Match listed on the Match Listing is not started on the Game Date, the square on the Pools Ticket will be displayed as Brown/Postponed respect of such Match, except in the following circumstances (where the relevant Match will be declared a Void Match):

8. FGP reserves the right to withhold Winnings and/or to declare any individual Entry or Game void, or any individual Match to be a Void Match, if it reasonably believes that:
o i. The integrity of a Match has been called into question;
o ii. The Pool has, or may have been, manipulated or its integrity has otherwise been called into question; and/or
o iii. Match-rigging has, or may have, taken place.
Such belief may be based on the size, volume or pattern of Entries placed across any or all Means of Entry or any announcement, investigation, instruction or decision made by any competent authority, sports body or other relevant authority or body.

2. Each Means of Entry will set out the age at which a Customer is allowed to place an Entry.
3. These Rules govern the operation of the Game, irrespective of the Buster Pool selected by a Customer or the Means of Entry.

FGP reserves the right to amend these Rules with prior notification to customers, we will give 14 days notice via email to all customers and publish these changes on the website, we also reserve the right to suspend the Game (or any part of it) in the event of war, earthquake, catastrophe, strikes or the occurrence of any other event beyond its reasonable control.
5. Despite every effort to ensure complete accuracy, FGP is not responsible for any typing, human or obvious error which leads to any errors or omissions, including (without limitation) game dates, coupon errors, publishing estimated Prize funds and Bingo or announcing dividends or Results other than those intended, or bets being taken which contravene these Rules. Any such errors shall be published on the Website. If any bet is taken in relation to such an error, it shall be accepted on the basis of the corrected information.
6. The Customer is not permitted to call at FGP's premises to deliver an Entry.

3. THE GAME
1. The Game is based on Goals, which are formulated from Selections. FGP will apply appropriate criteria to identify Goals of 2 different Selections from an Entry and therefore which Goals apply in determining whether or not a Customer has won.
2. Further details about available Prizes are set out in paragraph 7 below. However, please note that for Prizes, FGP will automatically award a goal point for each Match Goal scored, for the 2 different Selections based on the Results.

4. STAKES
1. A minimum Stake may apply to a particular Means of Entry.
2. FGP may (at its discretion) accept Entries where the Stake has met the minimum displayed entry.
3. Where an Entry is made in a currency other than pounds sterling, FGP is responsible for the currency conversion to pounds sterling at an exchange rate in accordance with its own procedures and FGP will accept the Stake for that Entry in pounds sterling in proportion to the Full Stake. Any winnings paid in respect of such Entries shall be calculated as a Proportionate Entry and settled automatically to the customer ewallet in pounds sterling.
4. Entries must be submitted with the required Stake. No credit will be offered by FGP to the Customer. If the correct and appropriate Stake (calculated according to the Buster Pool and the applicable Stake) does not accompany an Entry, that Entry will not be valid. The Stake required for an Entry and the Stake that FGP actually receives must be the same. If there is any difference in such amounts FGP may use its discretion to decide whether the Entry may be deemed acceptable after making any adjustments to that Entry that FGP decides are necessary or whether such Entry is invalid. Any Winnings to which the Customer may be entitled in such circumstances will be adjusted in proportion to the value of the Stake actually paid by the Customer in respect of the Entry to which such Winnings relate.

5. MAKING ENTRIES
1. To constitute an accepted Entry, such Entry (and the Selections made for that Entry) must be recorded on FGP’s central computer system by Closing Time of the game as displayed.
Any Entry recorded as having been received after Closing Time will not be accepted by FGP and will be invalid.
2. Only Buster allowed by FGP will be accepted. FGP will not accept part Buster games.

5. FGP shall where possible have responsibility to notify a Customer of an Entry that is invalid or void under these Rules. In such circumstances, the Stake shall be refunded or where possible (at FGP’s discretion), applied in full or in part as an Entry on behalf of the relevant Customer into the next Game.

6. DIVISION OF Buster
1. In accordance with the Gambling Act 2005, the total Prize fund for the Buster Pool will be the total amount of the Stakes entered in the Buster Pool less:
i. Butser Pool betting duty and/or any other taxes, duties or statutory deductions thereon; and
ii. Such percentage as may be determined by FGP, published retrospectively on a weekly basis on the Website, to cover its commission and expenses, this percentage shall not be more than 25%.
2. FGP will declare the dividend payable in respect of the Buster Pool for each of the Prizes by reference to the full Stake. FGP will publish details of the dividend payable on the Website and this is clearly displayed in the match list. If FGP accepts a Stake which is more or less than the full Stake (including without limitation, a Proportionate Entry) for whatever reason, and that Entry has a won, the dividend payable to that Customer will differ from the published dividend declared by FGP. FGP will calculate such alternative dividend by multiplying the declared dividend by the ratio of the actual Stake paid in respect of the winning Entry to the advertised standard Stake cost that would have otherwise applied to such Entry.
3. Subject to paragraph 6.6 below, FGP shall declare dividends in relation to three Prizes. The percentage of the Buster Pool allocated to each Prize level shall be determined by FGP. All dividends declared are subject to rescrutiny.

6. If any dividend (which may have been adjusted under paragraph 6.5 above) is less than £2, FGP may decide for administrative reasons that the relevant dividend should not be paid. If no dividends whatsoever are declared for the Buster, the Game will be declared void and the Customer's Stake will be refunded or, where possible (at FGP’s discretion), applied in full or in part as an Entry on behalf of the relevant Customer into the next Game.
7. If FGP discovers more winners after a declared dividend has been paid, FGP will still pay Winnings to such persons, save that such Winnings shall be calculated on the basis of what such persons would be entitled to receive if their winning Entry(ies) (together with all other post-declared dividend payout winning Entries) had been included at the time at which the declared dividend was paid (i.e. according to an amended dividend to that which was originally declared).
8. If paragraphs 4.2, 4.3, 4.5, 6.2, 6.6 and/or 6.9 apply and a surplus of Prize money is created in respect of a particular Prize, FGP will add any such surplus to the Prize money available for distribution in respect of the other Prizes.
