Period betting is a form of betting where you bet on the outcome of a particular segment of a match. A segment may be a quarter, half, or the full game. A period is usually 60 or 70 minutes. The amount of money you are able to bet on a segment may be regulated by the odds available.
The amount of money you are able to win on a particular bet is dependent on the odds offered by the bookmaker. You may be able to win more money on a bet if you place it on a smaller team. The bookmaker will also want to make money from your bet. You will be able to win less money if you bet on a larger team.
The Official Governing Body of the sport can change the rules of the game. For example, the starting lineup may be changed. The result may be changed if the official governing body is unable to determine a winner at the end of a game.
