Pursuant to section 78 of the Racing Industry Act 2020, TAB New Zealand hereby gives notice of the following amendments to the Betting Rules published as a Supplement to the New Zealand Gazette, 25 August 2003, No. 113, page 2981.
Deleted words are struck-out and in red.
These amendments to the Betting Rules are as follows:
13 CONDITIONS APPLICABLE TO FIXED ODDS SPORTS BETTING
(c) Notwithstanding any Rule to the contrary, but subject to Rule 13.7(d) and 13.7(l)(xv), and for MLB and NCAA matches only, if both of the nominated starting pitchers do not throw the first pitch of the game for their respective teams then all bets will be declared void (a ‘pitching change’). For the avoidance of doubt, bets on matches that are not either MLB or NCAA matches (‘World Baseball’) will stand irrespective of a pitching change.
(d) For the purposes of Rule 13.7(c) and in the event that the relevant team announces a pitching change before the match, TAB will void bets upon such announcement. In the event that team reinstates the named pitcher, bets will remain void.
[CONSEQUENTIAL AMENDMENTS: DELETE REFERENCES TO RULES 13.7(c) and 13.7(d). RENUMBER EXISTING RULES 13.7(e) TO 13.7(l), TO RULES 13.7(c) TO 13.17(j), AND UPDATE RELEVANT REFERENCES]
These Rules come into force on 2 April 2021.
Full copies of the Betting Rules may be inspected on request at TAB offices or downloaded from the TAB New Zealand website www.tab.co.nz.
