Users must keep this information secret and confidential as Users are responsible for all bets placed through your Account and any other activities taking place on your Account. Any Bet will stand if your Username and Password have been entered correctly, subject to their being sufficient funds in your Account. If at any time you feel a third party may be aware of your Password you should change it immediately via the Website.
6.8 Users may open only one Account and only one Account is allowed per household and per IP address. Any duplicate and/or additional Accounts that are identified will be refused, suspended or closed and the Operator may, at their sole discretion, withhold or delay the withdrawal of funds from any Account that may require further investigation.
7 ACCOUNT DEPOSITS, WITHDRAWALS AND BETTING LIMITS
7.1 You may not participate in any Service unless and until you have deposited sufficient funds into your Account. We do not allow Accounts to become overdrawn.
7.2 To deposit funds in your Account you must first supply such information as is required, which will depend upon the method of payment that you select for making the deposit. Once you have supplied the required information, you will be able to make a deposit request from the cashier page of your Account ("Deposit Request").
7.3 We reserve the right to place a limit on the amount of funds that you will be able to deposit at any time at a level that we may determine at our sole discretion. You may request that this deposit limit be altered by contacting our customer services team.
7.4 Neither we nor any of our service providers shall be under any obligation to accept your Deposit Request and we shall notify you if your Deposit Request is rejected. If your Deposit Request is accepted, we shall ensure that funds equal to those specified in your Deposit Request are credited to your Account within a reasonable period of time.
7.5 If any deposit is charged back or is otherwise uncollectible for any reason, any and all winnings generated from Bets conducted in such Account from the time of the applicable deposit until its reversal or the date when it is determined to be uncollectible shall be invalidated, forfeited and deducted from your Account balance. In addition, the amount of the initial failed deposit will be invalidated, forfeited and deducted from the Account balance. In the event that, following such deductions, your Account balance is in a negative balance, you expressly acknowledge and agree that such negative balance shall constitute an incontestable debt payable by you to us, due and payable immediately. You expressly acknowledge and agree that, in the event of non-payment of such debt, we may assign such debt to one or more collections agencies, who shall have the legal right to pursue such assigned debt using any or all available legal remedies. Note that following the assignment of such debt to a collections agency, the resolution of such debt and any legal processes associated therewith are not within our control and must be negotiated or resolved directly with such collections agency.
7.6 Services may be subject to minimum or maximum bet limits (either by way of a single bet or in aggregate over a 24 hour period) on a general or per Account basis as may be determined by us in our sole discretion from time to time. Bets placed are not subject to any maximum payout limits on winnings.
7.7 To withdraw funds from your Account you will need to request a withdrawal from the ‘Cashier’ page of your Account. You may request a withdrawal of any amount up to the full balance of your Account, provided that we reserve the right to place a limit on the amount of funds that you will be able to withdraw in a single request at a level that we may determine at our sole discretion. If we are satisfied that you have complied with the Terms, all AML and fraud-screening requirements, and all rules relating to the Services and any related bonuses, the payout shall be made to you. The manner in which the withdrawal is processed may be restricted, depending on the means by which the initial deposit(s) was/were made to the applicable Account. Without limiting the foregoing, we reserve the right to conclude your withdrawal request by an alternative method or process and in multiple tranches at our discretion. If, for whatever reason, a payout request cannot be approved, a customer services representative will contact you.
7.8 Charges related to deposits and/or withdrawals of funds from your account may apply in our sole discretion to reflect the cost incurred by us as a result of processing excessive transactions. Please note that if users are required to pay additional charges for deposits and/or withdrawals, we will notify you in advance before applying them.
7.9 User deposits and withdrawals are processed on our behalf by a third party payment processor, Safecharge Limited. Safecharge Limited provide debit and credit card deposit and withdrawal functionality for our customers and may in limited circumstances, subject to request, offer alternative deposit and withdrawal methods for selected Users as may be approved by us from time to time in our sole discretion
7.10 Unless otherwise stated in the particular rules applicable to individual Services or bonus promotions, any bonus funds that are credited to your Account (whether as a result of a prize, promotion, redemption or any other reason) shall be subject to a 20x play through requirement before such bonus funds (and any associated winnings from such bonus funds) can be withdrawn.
7.11 Unless otherwise state in the particular rules applicable to individual Services or bonus promotions, all customer offers are limited to one per person, family, household address, email address, IP address or telephone number and a customer is only entitled to have one bonus offer active at any given time.
7.12 Whenever bonus funds are issued as part of any promotion or otherwise, a players real money balance will always be used first when placing Bets before any bonus funds can be used. Any additional real money deposits made whilst a customer has an active bonus will be subject to the same bonus terms as the original deposit through which the active bonus was earned.
8 PLACING A BET
8.1 Users should ensure they have read and understood the Sports Betting Rules and/or Game Rules in relation to a particular sport, market or Game before placing a Bet.
8.2 Once a User places a Bet they shall receive an acknowledgement, which is confirmation of acceptance of the Bet by us. A Bet shall be deemed void if it is not transmitted in full. Users are unable to cancel or change a Bet once the Bet has been placed and the acceptance confirmed.
8.3 We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, at any time to refuse any Bet or part of a Bet without giving a reason.
8.4 We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, at any time to void any Bet or part of a Bet, even after the Bet has been settled, if that Bet is deemed by us, at our sole discretion, to have been placed or settled otherwise than in accordance with these Terms.
8.5 A number of Bets may be treated as being one when a User places multiple copies of the same Bet. When this occurs all Bets will be voided apart from the first Bet struck.
8.6 Where a number of Bets involving identical or very similar selections are received by different Users within a short timeframe, we reserve the right to void all such Bets, even after the Bets have been settled. In addition, we reserve the right to bring legal action against Users where a regulatory authority finds that collusion has taken place.
8.7 All Bet prices are subject to variation and become fixed at the time a Bet is placed. We cannot be held responsible for any typing, human or palpable error which leads to any errors or omissions (including the announcing, publishing or marking of prices or results other than those intended), or Bets being accepted that contravene these Terms. In cases where a Bet has been accepted at an incorrect price we reserve the right to void the bet, even after the Bets have been settled.
8.8 We cannot be held responsible for any typing, human, software or palpable error in relation to any product or information provided on the website. We shall void any bet where such bet has been placed in circumstances where we consider, at our sole discretion, that such an error has occurred, even after the bets have been settled.
8.9 We are not responsible for the accuracy of odds, prices or other information displayed on third-party or affiliate websites and we accept no liability in the event of odds or other materials being displayed incorrectly or otherwise in error on such third party websites.
8.10 Whilst we make every attempt to ensure that any Content used on the Website is accurate, such Content is subject to error and may not always be 100% accurate. Content on the Website may therefore vary significantly from content in relation to the same event on other media sources. In agreeing to these Terms you expressly acknowledge and agree that Content may be inaccurate and subject to error, the Content is not intended to amount to advice or recommendations and is provided for information purposes only. Content should not be relied upon when placing Bets, which are made at your own risk and discretion. You further agree that under no circumstances will we be liable in any way for any Content, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any Content, or any losses or harm of any kind resulting from the use of any Content posted, emailed, transmitted or otherwise made available on the Website.
8.11 Communication errors do occasionally happen. Bets are confirmed only when received on our servers. Should there be a break in communication after a Bet has been placed and it has been received on our servers it will still be considered to be valid. You will be informed that it has been accepted once communication is re-established at which time the Bet may have been already utilised. You will receive information about the outcome of the Bet placed. If the Bet is not received on our servers then it will not stand and the Bet amount will not have been taken from Your account.
8.12 If a Game is started but fails or produces an inexact result due to a breakdown of the Game account management software and/or of the Game and/or of the random number generator, all the stakes and winnings coming from that Game will be cancelled and the game account balance will be restored to its position prior to the start of the Game.
8.13 If you disconnect your session during an active Game, your stake will be returned to your Game account balance.
8.14 While we endeavour to ensure the accuracy of pay tables quoted for a Game are accurate, if any mistake is inadvertently made, we reserve the right to modify the payout ratios even once the event has finished (where applicable).
8.15 Please note that all jackpot amounts advertised in relation to any Game are for information purposes only. The exact amount of any jackpot is displayed within the relevant Game window once the game has been launched.

9 RESPONSIBLE CONDUCT
9.1 The Website and the Services are intended solely for recreational and entertainment purposes. We are committed to ensuring that Users have the ability to manage or limit their play on the Website. For more detailed information, please visit our dedicated Responsible Gaming Section of our Website at the following link.
9.2 We maintain processes for you to manage and limit your deposits. You may limit your deposits on a monthly basis for many deposit instruments. Note that the deposit limit will apply as an aggregate limit for all deposit instruments for which such limits can be implemented at the time of the limit request only. Note further that if you self-impose a monthly deposit limit and later wish to increase or remove such limit, such removal or increase remains at the discretion of customer services and will not take place until at least 24 hours following the limit increase request.
9.3 You have the option of self-excluding and deactivating your Account if you believe you have a gambling problem. The Responsible Gaming Section provides you with an automated ability to exclude yourself from the ability of being able to play on the Website as well as providing information on how to contact customer services should you wish to discuss this in person. We offer various exclusion periods as follows:
9.4 Whilst we will use our reasonable endeavours to enforce our Responsible Gaming Policies, we do not accept any responsibility or liability if a User nevertheless continues gambling and/or seeks to use this Website with the intention of deliberately avoiding our Responsible Gaming measures in place and/or we are unable to enforce our Responsible Gaming measures for reasons outside of our reasonable control.
9.5 If we have reasonable cause to believe that criminal or other suspicious activities are occurring through one or more Accounts (including, without limitation, a suspicion of attempted money-laundering, fraud or bonus abuse), we expressly reserve the right to void any Bets, close such Accounts and/or report such activity to the Commission and/or such other applicable regulatory bodies or services. All Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings and bonuses) shall be forfeited.
9.6 If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that a User has engaged in fraudulent, unlawful, dishonest or improper activity (including, without limitation, the provision of false or deliberately misleading information or bonus abuse), we reserve the right to immediately terminate or deny a User access to their Account. In such event, all Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings and bonuses) shall be forfeited and we reserve the right to disclose information (including the identity of the User) to applicable parties including but not limited to; the Commission, banks, credit card companies and/or any person or entity that has the legal right to such information, and/or taking legal action against such User.
9.7 In accordance with our AML obligations and protocols, we do not permit or condone money transfers between User Accounts. Users found to be transferring money (including by way of so-called poker “chip dumping”) may have the transfer reversed in our sole and absolute discretion. In such event, in our discretion, such Accounts may be closed and all Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings) may be forfeited.
9.8 If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that an Account sought to or actually did exploit any hardware or software error, malfunction, “bug” or other vulnerability, we shall immediately close such Account. All Account balances, including both deposits and any winnings and bonuses, shall be immediately forfeited. If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that such activity is occurring, the Account(s) may, in our sole and absolute discretion, be disabled and all Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings and bonuses) shall be forfeited. In such an event, we expressly reserve the right to initiate legal proceedings and report such activities to authorities in support of criminal investigations and charges, as appropriate.
9.9 A User is strictly forbidden from using any form of artificial intelligence including, without limitation, automated software or programs (“Bots”). Any Users that we believe to be operating Bots will have their Account closed.
9.10 A User or group of Users working together in any fashion (also known as a “syndicate”), to receive either winnings or activity bonuses or otherwise, may only have one Account in total, and any redundant Accounts will be consolidated into the one Account. All Bet transactions in redundant Accounts are subject to reversal in our sole discretion. We also reserve the right to void any Bet placed in an attempt to defraud us of any bonus monies, whether a User does this on their own or in collusion with other Users, even after the Bets have been settled.
9.11 Before any withdrawals are processed, your behaviour on the Website/usage of the Games will be reviewed for any irregular playing patterns. We reserve the right to withhold any withdrawals and/or void winnings and bonuses should we consider in our sole discretion that any irregular play has occurred. In the interests of fair gaming, equal, zero or low margin bets or hedge betting, through one or more Accounts, whether on this Website or any other of our websites, shall all be considered irregular playing patterns for bonus play-through requirement purposes. Irregular play may also include, but is not limited to, placing larger bets leading to a substantial gain followed by a drop in bet size equal to or greater than 75% of the previous average bet size in order to complete the wagering requirements for that bonus. Players deemed, at our sole discretion, to be adopting a low risk betting strategy to clear wagering may have the bonus along with any winnings removed. This includes, but is not limited to, betting on red or black.
9.13 It is a condition of our acceptance of Bets from a User, and by offering to place a Bet with us, that the User confirms, represents and warrants that:
9.14 In the event of any such representation by you proving to be false your stake will be forfeited and we shall not be obliged to pay any winnings or bonuses which might otherwise have been payable in respect of the Bet.
9.15 Bonus programs are intended for recreational bettors only. Users considered, in our sole discretion, to be abusing the bonus system by any means may have bonuses revoked and be subject to further sanctions, including, but not limited to, the voiding of any Bets, suspension or closure of Accounts and/or reporting of such activity to the Commission and/or such other applicable regulatory bodies or services. Bonus abuse may be defined as (but not restricted to) Users cashing out for the purpose of re-depositing, or referring new Accounts that they are using themselves. Sanctions may be in the form of increased rollover requirements or loss of bonus privileges altogether for the offending Account as well as any identified linked Accounts. We reserve the right to restrict eligibility for special offers and bonuses when necessary. This includes (but is not limited to) placing geographic restrictions on match bonuses due to bonus abuse.
9.16 The Operator operates multiple online gaming sites pursuant to its UKGC Licences. Any bonus abuse identified on this Website, either in isolation or in conjunction with any other account held at another of our websites, may result in sanctions being applied in accordance with clause 9.15 above to any other accounts held by the User at any of the Operator's other websites. A User is only entitled to redeem one new customer offer across any of our websites. Any attempt by a User to redeem more than one new customer offer, on this Website or any of our other websites, shall result in the bonus being revoked and further sanctions may apply in accordance with clause 9.15 above.

10.1 Should palpable errors, erroneous pricing, or other mistakes or omissions occur, the Operator will make every reasonable effort to investigate and take action to rectify them promptly and fairly.
10.2 Should a User become aware of an error, mistake or omission, they must notify the Operator immediately. The User is not permitted to take advantage of any such error, mistake or omission they identify.

In the event your Account is to be closed or suspended (including for the avoidance of doubt through self-exclusion in accordance with our Responsible Gaming policy) any open Bets, subject to compliance with all other Terms, shall be settled on the result of the event in accordance with the relevant Sports Rules then in place. Any negative balance on your Account will become immediately due and payable and your Account will not be closed until any balance due to us has been repaid in full.
11.2 If an Account is dormant for six (6) months or longer, the Operator reserves the right to levy a monthly administration charge for maintenance of the Account and offset such charges against the balance remaining in the Account. If the Account remains inactive for twelve (12) months or longer, the Operator reserves the right to close the Account and to deal with any funds then remaining in the Account at the Operator’s absolute discretion.

Such processing may be performed by us or on our behalf, by our staff, agents and sub-contractors who may be located anywhere in the world. Some third party processors we engage to process information on our behalf may be based outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). By submitting your personal data, you agree to the storing, transfer and processing of your information in this way, both within and outside the EEA.

However, where any storing, transfer or processing of your information is required outside of the EEA, we will always take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your information is used securely and in accordance with this Policy.
We shall retain and store your personal information for as long as we reasonably require it for legal or business purposes. In most circumstances, your information shall not be kept longer than 7 years provided there are no legal or regulatory requirements for us to retain your information for longer.
We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is used and retained securely and in accordance with this privacy statement and will encrypt certain portions of your personal data where appropriate, including payment transactions if applicable.

We maintain appropriate technical and physical safeguards to protect your personal information against accidental or unlawful destruction or loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access, use and all other unlawful forms of processing of the data in our possession. Unfortunately however, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data you provide us with, which takes place at your own risk and we shall accept no liability for any direct, consequential, incidental, indirect, or punitive losses or damages arising out of any such data breach.
