    BASKETBALL

    Settlement of Wagers
    Statistics provided by the official score(s) provider or the official website of the relevant competition will be used to settle wagers. Where statistics from an official score(s) provider or official website are not available or there is significant evidence that the official score(s) provider or official website is incorrect, we will use independent evidence to support bet settlement.

    In the absence of consistent, independent evidence or in the presence of significant conflicting evidence, bets will be settled after a thorough investigation.

    Pinnacle does not recognize protests or overturned decisions for wagering purposes.

    Treatment for date change
    If an event is not played on its scheduled date all wagers on the event will have no action.

    Treatment if event does not come to its natural conclusion
    If play is suspended before the minimum time has been reached and not resumed the same day, all wagers on the event will have no action.

    Minimum time (length of event) needed for action
    All competitions/leagues except the NBA must go at least 35 minutes for action unless otherwise specified.

    NBA games must go at least 43 minutes to have action.

    For wagers on periods (quarters and halfs) the minimum time is considered to be the duration of the period. If the entire game is not completed, wagers on quarters and halfs will have action if the relevant period was completed.

    Treatment for overtime
    Any wager on the game or the 2nd half will include any overtime that may occur.
    Any wager on the 4th quarter does not include any overtime that may occur.

    Regular Season Wins Props:
    NBA regular season win bets will be graded and have action when the following two things occur:
    a. The team, mathematically, cannot win the number of games indicated in the bet or has already won the number of games indicated in the bet.
    b. The team, at the time of grading, is expected to play all 82 games(or has already played all 82 games). In other words, there is no indication that the season will be or has been shortened at the time of grading.

    If there is any doubt that the season will be less than 82 games for a team, we will wait to grade regular season win bets until after the team plays its 82nd game. However, once a regular season win bet has been graded, it will not be changed, even if the team ends up playing less than 82 games.

    Individual Player Props:
    In a proposition offered prior to an NBA game (as opposed to our live NBA proposition offering) concerning an individual's total points, rebounds, assists, blocked shots, or any other similar statistic (or combination of these statistics), the specific player must start the game for action.

    Any proposition which refers to a 3 point shot refers to a shot made/attempted behind the 3 point arc.

    A "Double Double" for purposes of Basketball props means ten or more in at least two of the following categories: Points, Rebounds, Assists, Blocks or Steals. A "Triple Double" for purposes of Basketball props means ten or more in at least three of the following categories: Points, Rebounds, Assists, Blocks or Steals. If you want to bet that the player will get a Double Double in the game you would wager on over 1/2 Double Double (or under 1/2, if you think he will not get a Double Double). The same would hold true regarding the procedure for wagers on a Triple Double.

    In live propositions offered during NBA games concerning an individual's total points, rebounds, assists, blocked shots, or any other similar statistic (or combination of these statistics), the specific player will be indicated as either "must play" or "must start" in the wording of the propositions.

    NBA Finals MVP Props:
    For NBA Finals MVP propositions, if there are co-MVP’s, any bet related would be paid at full odds. If there is yes/no wagering on NBA Finals MVP and a named player is a co-MVP, then yes will be declared winner and paid at full odds.

    If two players from the “the field” are co-MVPs, “the field” is graded as the winner and wagers paid one time.

    NBA Season MVP Props:
    For NBA Season MVP propositions, if there are co-MVP’s, any bet related would be paid at full odds. If there is yes/no wagering on NBA Season MVP and a named player is a co-MVP, then yes will be declared winner and paid at full odds.

    If two players from the “the field” are co-MVPs, “the field” is graded as the winner and wagers paid one time.

    NBA All Star Props:
    General Rules

    For All-Star game propositions for a specific player, that player only need to play in the All-Star game for action unless we specify that the player must start.

    NBA Allstar MVP

    For NBA Allstar MVP propositions, if there are co-MVP’s, any bet related would be paid at full odds. If there is yes/no wagering on NBA Allstar MVP and a named player is a co-MVP, then yes will be declared winner and paid at full odds.

    If two players from the “the field” are co-MVPs, “the field” is graded as the winner and wagers paid one time.

    Dunk Contest Specific
    For wagers to have action on a specific player, that player must attempt at least one dunk.

    In head to head match-ups, both players must attempt at least one dunk for any wager to have action.

    Three point contest
    In a head to head match-up both players must attempt at least one shot for wagers to have action.
    In a head to head match-up, if players are tied for the most points, all wagers are graded no action and refunded.
    For wagers to have action on a specific player, that player must attempt at least one shot.
    NBA All Star Game Wagering(Game/Quarter/Half wagers)
    In January 2020 the NBA established a new format for the All Star Game with special rules.

    Money Line wagers on the full game will be paid out to the winner of the game, after the 4th quarter, based on the current All Star rules enacted by the NBA.

    Any offering on an individual quarter, will be graded based on the result of that quarter as per the current All Star rules enacted by the NBA.

    NCAA Tournament Props:
    Only games played during and after the round of 64 will be counted toward posted propositions. Play-in games will not count. For example, if California plays Virginia in a play-in game before the round of 64, the winner will not have its win count toward the over/under number of wins for the Pac 12 or ACC conferences.

    For propositions regarding "Buzzer Beaters," a "Buzzer Beater" is defined as a made field goal (either two point FG or three point FG) at the end of a game that involves the following:

    a. The made shot leaves absolutely no time left on the game clock at the end of the game, and;
    b. The made shot puts the shooter's team ahead for the win when the shooter's team immediately prior to the made shot had been behind or tied.

    Other Props:
    For team to win the Eastern or Western Conference futures, the winner of the respective conference will be the team that reaches the NBA Finals.
