An abandonment is where a match is halted before the completion of the allocated match time and not played out to conclusion on the same day. Markets which have already been determined at the time of abandonment, such as ‘First Team to Score’, will stand. The Market must be fully determined for bets to stand.

11.10. If a Market is incorrectly settled, Shuffle reserves the right to correct it at any time.

11.11. For prop bets, the following terminology applies:

“Player must play”: applies to all pre-match player prop markets across NBA, NHL, NFL, CBB, and CFB and all in-play player prop markets across MLB, NBA and NFL.

“Player must start”: all prematch MLB player prop markets (pitcher and batter markets) are "Player must start". Bench player markets are not available for pre-match betting. NHL goalie markets are "Goalie Must Start".

11.12. The following rules apply to prop bets:

  1. Shuffle reserves the right to void bets placed on known outcomes or known results.

  2. Settlements are sourced from the official league data in the box scores: nfl.com, nba.com, mlb.com, and nhl.com.

  3. Bets are void on postponed, cancelled, or abandoned matches.

11.13. “Cash Out” is a feature that offers the customer the opportunity to take a return on a bet placed before the bet has reached its conclusion. To Cash Out (where available), click on the Cash Out button next to your bet. The Cash Out amount will then be credited to your account. Once you have chosen to Cash Out, your bet will be deemed concluded and will be unaffected by the final outcome of the relevant event.

11.14. The following also applies to the Cash Out feature:

  1. Cash Out will not be available on certain Markets and events.

  2. A time delay is applied on every Cash Out.

  3. Cash Out will not be available if the event and/or Market you have placed a bet on is suspended.

  4. A Cash Out attempt may not be successful if a Market or event is suspended or odds change during the time delay period applied after Cash Out is attempted.

  5. Where Cash Out is available on a pre-match event, if we do not cover the event live then Cash Out will be unavailable once the event starts.

  6. Your Cash Out value will differ depending on how your selection is performing and may be higher or lower than your original stake.

  7. Shuffle reserves the right to reverse the settlement of a Cash Out on any bet that has been settled in error.

  8. Shuffle will not be responsible in the event that Cash Out is unavailable because of technical issues. Any bets will be settled as normal based on the final result.

  9. Shuffle reserves the right to remove a customer’s ability to use the Cash Out feature, or to nullify any use of such feature, in the event of misuse or any other breaches of these Terms of Service.

11.15. A “Maximum Win Limit” will apply to bets on Shuffle. The Maximum Win Limit is the maximum total amount that Shuffle will credit to an individual customer’s Shuffle Account in relation to any and all bets placed on (i) a single event or selection or (ii) a single Market or related Markets.

11.16. The Maximum Win Limit is equal to US$500,000, or its equivalent in the currencies in which the relevant bets are placed, calculated at the time each applicable Market is settled.

11.17. If a customer attempts to circumvent any Maximum Win Limits, whether through the use of multiple Shuffle Accounts or through other means, it will constitute a breach of these Terms of Service. In those circumstances, Shuffle may take such action as it sees fit, including cancelling the relevant bets or adjusting or withholding winnings.

11.18. For the avoidance of doubt, the Maximum Win Limit does not impact Shuffle’s discretion not to accept a bet or to limit the size of the stake it is willing to accept for a bet, nor does it impact Shuffle’s ability to rely on and enforce these Terms of Service or any other applicable terms.

11.19. Unless Shuffle has specifically agreed otherwise, an individual customer’s maximum daily winnings are equal to US$500,000, or its equivalent in the currencies in which the relevant bets are placed, calculated at the time each applicable Market is settled.
