Licensed sportsbooks are regulated by the government and offer high payout limits, easy navigation, and excellent customer support. However, before you bet on a sportsbook, check the terms and conditions and payment methods offered. You also need to check if the sportsbook is legal in your jurisdiction.

Live score updates are only valid for matches where the game is being played. If the game is replayed, bets will be void. For example, if a team scores a goal in the first half, the score will be re-calculated at the end of the second half.

In-Play/Live bets are available until the Operator stops betting on an event. The Operator reserves the right to stop betting on an event at any time. However, bets placed before the suspension will stand, provided the bet was accepted before the suspension. The Operator also reserves the right to suspend certain markets.

Period betting is a form of bet that involves placing a bet on a specific time. It is based on a regular time of 60 or 70 minutes of play. Period betting includes overtime. However, overtime is not taken into account for markets involving “2nd half.”

The “2nd half” refers to the second half of the match. This is the period during which the team’s half-time score is determined. For example, a team’s “2nd half” score is based on a total of goals and points scored. A score of 0-0 is considered even.

The period before the start of a period is referred to as “the previous period”. Penalties are not considered in final score calculations. However, if the team that scores a goal is awarded a penalty, this penalty will count as a goal.
