A betting slip is accepted on the basis that it is the investment of one customer only and the following are the maximum amounts that can be won (excluding stake) by one customer in one day's betting regardless of stake. These maximums will still apply even if by taking prices the level of potential winnings exceeds these amounts.
The following maximum amounts that can be won by one customer in one day's betting will apply even if bets have been placed through more than one betting channel (i.e Internet, Telephone Betting or Licensed Betting Offices).
Where bets have been placed on different days, "the maximum amount that can be won in one day's betting" is determined by the day on which the final race/event on each bet is resolved, rather than the day on which each individual bet is placed.
Should a number of bets, containing the same selection(s) be placed in one or more of our branches, and we have reason to believe they have originated from one customer or group/syndicate of customers acting together, then we reserve the right to limit the total payment of all those bets combined to the single maximum payout applicable in these rules.
Where selections taken from the different categories listed below are combined in multiple or accumulative bets the lowest maximum winnings limit will apply.
Throughout these rules reference is made to a 'full service'. This means shows, offs and results, broadcast by SIS or a special William Hill Service, and displayed on our text screens, on a race by race basis.
