The Customer should read these terms and conditions carefully as they affect their rights and liabilities under the law. The Operator is licensed and regulated by the Gambling Supervision Commission of the Isle of Man Government. Online Gambling debts incurred through an operator licensed and regulated in the Isle of Man are enforceable in law.

The Internet Betting Service is provided to the Customer for their personal non-commercial use subject to these terms and conditions.

However, the Operator will ensure that any significant changes to these terms and conditions will be notified to the Customer by an appropriate method (for example via an announcement on the Website).

If the Customer does not wish to accept the new terms and conditions the Customer should not continue to use the Internet Betting Service. If the Customer continues to use the Internet Betting Service after the date on which the change comes into effect, the Customer's use of the Internet Betting Service will be confirmation of the Customer's agreement to be bound by the new terms and conditions.
2.2 It remains the Customer's responsibility to periodically check these terms and conditions to ensure that they continue to agree with them and Customers are advised to do so each time they use the Internet Betting Service. The Customer's continued use of the Internet Betting Service will be confirmation of their acceptance of any changes to these terms and conditions. Any bet received (but not settled) prior to the time of amendment and notification of amended terms and conditions will be subject to the pre-existing terms and conditions.
3 REGISTRATION AND USE OF THE CUSTOMER'S ACCOUNT
3.1 To register for an account to use the Internet Betting Service (an "Account"), the Customer must be at least eighteen years of age or the legal age required for gambling in the Customer's jurisdiction, whichever is the greater. The Customer must ensure that the details provided by them on registration (or at any time thereafter) are correct and complete and must inform the Operator immediately of any changes to their details by updating their Account in order that the Operator can communicate with them effectively. The Operator reserves the right to request identification documents (e.g. passport or identity cards) for verification purposes. By agreeing to these terms and conditions, the Customer hereby authorises the Operator to conduct such verification checks (including identity and address verification checks) from time to time as the Operator may require or as may be required by third parties (including, but not limited to, regulatory bodies) to confirm any of the personal details provided by the Customer to the Operator. Where such verification checks are to be made in the Customer's name, the Customer hereby authorises the Operator to act as the Customer's agent in making these checks and accessing such databases in the Customer's name.
3.2 A Customer wishing to place a bet on the Internet Betting Service should note that there may be specific laws in their country, place of residence, or the place where the Customer accesses the Internet Betting Service which prohibit gambling. The Customer warrants to the Operator that they will not access the Internet Betting Service from within a jurisdiction that prohibits gambling. Further, the Customer warrants to the Operator that they will not access (or register for) the Internet Betting Service at any time if they are a citizen of a nation state that prohibits its citizens from participating in gambling (regardless of their location).
3.3 It is the Customer's responsibility to ensure compliance with their applicable local or national laws before registering for an Account and/or before placing bets on the Internet Betting Service. The Customer is encouraged to seek legal advice before registering and/or placing any bets or depositing any money to verify that their proposed dealings on the Internet Betting Service are not contrary in any way to such laws. The Operator does not accept any responsibility for a Customer's breach of any applicable local or national laws.

If the Customer knows or suspects that someone else knows their password or that any other personal information has been stolen or otherwise accessed without their authority they should notify the Operator immediately
3.6 If the Operator has reason to believe that there is likely to be a breach of security or misuse of the Internet Betting Service, it may require the Customer to change their password or it may suspend the Customer's Account.
3.7 The Customer will not allow any other person or third party (including, without limitation, any minor) to use their Account or accept any prize on their behalf. The Customer is solely responsible for all use of the Internet Betting Service through their login and password. Unless caused by the Operator's negligence, any unauthorised use of the login and password will be the Customer's sole responsibility and deemed the Customer's use. The Customer will therefore be liable for any such unauthorised use and will not be refunded any resulting losses on the Internet Betting Service, regardless of whether or not the third party who participated had the Customer's consent.

Thereafter the deductions for the administration charge will cease.
3.9 The Operator may suspend or terminate the Customer's Account immediately at its absolute discretion including if the Customer breaches any of their obligations under these terms and conditions. In this event and save for any contrary provisions expressly stated in these terms and conditions, the balance of the Customer's Account will be returned to the Customer.
3.10 The expiry or termination of a Customer's Account for any reason will not affect:
(a) any rights, obligations and/or liabilities accrued before the date of termination or expiry; or
(b) any rights, obligations and/or liabilities expressed to continue in force after and despite expiry or termination.
3.11 The Operator reserves the right not to open an account for any applicant without having to provide any reason whatsoever.

3.12 The use of artificial intelligence or "bots" on the Internet Betting Service is strictly forbidden. Likewise, any application that uses any or all of the data contained on the Internet Betting Service for purposes (including but not limited to commercial purposes) other than participating in the Internet Betting Service (e.g. via screen scraping) is prohibited. The Operator will take measures to prevent and detect the use of programs that are designed to enable artificial intelligence (non-humans) to utilise or benefit from the data contained on the Website. Any attempted or actual use of artificial intelligence by the Customer will lead to termination of their Account in accordance with Clause 3.9 and Clause 3.11.
3.13 The Customer can cancel their Account at any time by informing the Operator in writing at [email protected]. If the Customer does so, they must stop using the Internet Betting Service immediately.
3.14 The suspension or cancellation of the Customer's Account will not affect either party's statutory rights or liabilities.

They may not be reproduced without the Operator's prior written consent.
4.3 Except as permitted by these terms and conditions, the Customer may not copy, use, modify, create derivative works from or distribute the Software or written materials associated with the Internet Betting Service, decode, reverse engineer, dissemble, decompile or otherwise translate or convert the Software or any part of it or transfer, loan, lease, assign, rent or otherwise sublicense the Software or do any of the above to any copy, adaptation, transcription, or merged portion of the Software. Without limitation, the above activity includes any form of denting, hacking, attacking, manipulating or damaging of the Internet Betting Service.
5 PAYMENT AND SECURITY
5.1 Money in the Customer's Account is used to place bets with the Operator. The Customer is not allowed to place a bet greater than the amount deposited in their Account. Any winnings are placed into the Customer's Account. Deposits and withdrawals are initially actioned by the Customer through the Internet Betting Service.
5.2 The Customer accepts and authorises the Operator to instruct its payment management company to handle the processing of Account deposits and withdrawals. Thereby the Customer allows the Operator to give such instructions on the Customer's behalf. The Operator reserves the right to withhold payment of any funds if suspicion or evidence of manipulation of the Internet Betting Service arises. The Operator may take action against the Customer or any other party who manipulates, or tries to manipulate, the Internet Betting Service or any part of it.
5.3 To maintain a high level of security to protect the Customer's funds, the Operator performs random security checks. The Customer hereby accepts that the Operator maintains the right to demand additional documentation in order to verify the Customer as the cardholder in the event of such a security check.
5.4 The Customer has the responsibility for checking the available funds in their Account (the "Betting Funds") before or after each betting transaction and prior to departing from the betting session. If the Customer suspects any errors, they must report it immediately to the Operator. Failure to do so will result in the Customer waiving their rights to raise future disputes and acceptance of all previous betting records as true and correct.
5.5 The Customer must inform the Operator as soon as reasonably possible if they believe that their Account information is being misused in any way by a third party so that the Operator may suspend their Account. The Operator will not be held responsible for any reasonable delay in such suspension.
5.6 Unless otherwise stated in these terms and conditions, no bet can be cancelled once confirmed by the Operator. All bets stand once confirmed whether the Customer is online or offline. The Operator reserves the right to refuse any bet.
5.7 It is a Licensing requirement of the Isle of Man Government that, on the first occasion a Customer requests a withdrawal of funds which exceeds €3,000 (or currency equivalent) or when taken together with all other payments made to a Customer within the 30 days immediately preceding the date on which the payment is to be made, the aggregate amount exceeds €3,000 (or currency equivalent) then satisfactory evidence of identity and residential address must be provided by the Customer. The minimum requirement will be a copy of a current photo identification document and a copy of a document as proof of residential address (eg, bank or credit card statements, utility bill (excluding mobile telephone account), etc) which must not be more than 90 days old.
5.8 Subject to the terms contained in these terms and conditions or any applicable law, the Customer may withdraw Betting Funds from their Account at any time. However the Customer shall not make any request for withdrawal of Betting Funds until (i) any prior withdrawal request from the Customer has been paid out or withdrawn or cancelled; or (ii) 24 hours has lapsed since the Customer's previous withdrawal request was made; whichever shall be the later. The Customer shall be liable for all costs, taxes, levies and charges (including but not limited to bank and payment provider charges) incurred by the Operator in processing the Customer’s withdrawal of Betting Funds from or deposit of funds to the Customer’s Account. Further the Customer must meet a minimum bet turnover threshold of three times the amount deposited prior to making a withdrawal. If the Customer fails to meet this minimum requirement, the Customer will incur a five percent (5%) processing fee on the deposit amount or the withdrawal amount or both, which processing fee shall be deducted from the Customer's Account and from any Betting Funds to be withdrawn by the Customer. The Operator may at its sole discretion waive such costs, taxes, levies, charges and processing fees but any such waiver shall not be deemed as a waiver of future costs, taxes, levies, charges and processing fees. Such waiver shall only be considered by the Operator if the Customer, amongst others, has met the minimum turnover requirement above as well as certain other (but not all) terms in respect of the available payment options. These other terms and the minimum & maximum amounts that can be deposited or withdrawn can be viewed by clicking here. The computation of the Customer’s bet turnover for the purposes of this Clause shall only include the value of winning and losing bets. The value of bets with any other outcome shall be excluded.
5.9 Subject to any limitations imposed by the Operator's payment management providers, any applicable taxes and fees in connection with any awarded prize are the Customer's sole responsibility. Prizes cannot be transferred, substituted, or redeemed for any other prize.
5.10 Notwithstanding the terms of Clause 5.8 above, the Operator reserves the right, at its absolute discretion, to charge a sum equivalent to 5% (five percent) on any amount deposited or withdrawn or on both deposits and withdrawals made by the Customer, as the case may be, at any time and from time to time if the Operator shall in its sole discretion see fit. In the event that the Operator exercises this right, this sum of 5% (five percent) of the amount or amounts deposited or withdrawn by the Customer shall be immediately deducted from the
6 ANTI-MONEY LAUNDERING PROVISIONS
6.1 Under the laws of the Isle of Man and the Online Gambling Regulation Act 2001, which licences the Operator, there is a requirement for the Operator to obtain proof of identity and residential address (which address must correspond with that registered with the Operator) when the Customer, for the first time, request a withdrawal of Betting Funds which singularly or taken together with previous withdrawals in preceding 30 days period exceed €3,000.00 or currency equivalent (the "Qualifying Payment"). Acceptable forms of proof of identity and residence shall be :
(a) a current photographic identity document (eg, national identity document, passport, driver's licence, etc);
(b) proof of residential address document which must not be older than 90 days (eg, bank or credit card statements, utility bills (not mobile telephone), etc).
6.2 Upon the compliance of the above requirements by the Customer (the "KYC Compliance"), then the KYC Compliance shall remain in effect for so long as the documents submitted shall not be invalidated for any reason whatsoever and the Customer shall be at liberty to make a request for withdrawals of Betting Funds at any time.
6.3 The Operator will only credit Betting Funds into the Account of the Customer that placed the winning bet. Further, the Operator will only pay out Betting Funds via the method that the Betting Funds were deposited into the Account.
6.4 The Operator reserves the right, at its reasonable discretion, to suspend payment out of the Betting Funds, pending a full investigation (including providing details to the relevant law enforcement agency where appropriate), where it suspects that Betting Funds have been deposited, and are attempting to be withdrawn, by a Customer for the purposes of money laundering. An example of where this might occur includes where a Customer deposits a substantial sum in Betting Funds and then attempts to withdraw these Betting Funds having only conducted minimal betting activity on the Internet Betting Service. Full repayment of the Betting Funds will be made to the Customer where the investigation reveals no evidence of money laundering.
6.5 Notwithstanding the terms of Clause 5.7 above, the Operator reserves the right, at its absolute discretion, at any time and from time to time to request that the Customer provides the satisfactory evidence of identity and residential address referred to in Clause 5.7 above. Failure by the Customer to provide this evidence may result in the Customer's Account being suspended, which shall include the suspension of any withdrawal requests.
7.1 In making a bet, the Customer will determine the amount of his own stake, subject to the following:
(a) the restrictions on winnings permitted under Clause 10;
(b) the restrictions on bets set out in this Clause 7.1;
(c) the minimum and maximum amount of any bet will be as indicated on the Internet Betting Service;
(d) if a Customer places a bet, the stake for which would exceed any limits adopted pursuant to this Clause 7.1, such bet will be void; and
(e) the restrictions on bets and winnings as set out in Clause 12.
7.2 If a bet is not made in full or if details of it are missing, the Operator may, at its discretion, deem such bet to be void.
7.3 A Customer will not be entitled to make multiple bets which combine different selections within the same event. In the event that such a bet is accepted in error, it will be void.
7.4 Subject to Clause 7.5, a Customer may send multiple copies of the same bet in which case all such bets will be treated as separate bets. If a Customer submits a number of bets (whether identical or different), they will be dealt with by the Operator in the order in which they are received.
7.5 The Customer must make their bets as an individual. The Operator will be entitled to reject and treat as void a series of identical bets from different Customers or where the Operator suspects that Customers are acting in collusion or as a syndicate with any other individual(s) and will be entitled to refuse payment of any winnings.
7.6 Bets on events in which the Customer is participating (and whether the Customer is participating for this purpose will be decided by the Operator in its absolute discretion) are not permitted.
7.7 In making a bet, the Customer represents and warrants to the Operator to not knowing nor having any influence over the outcome of the event in respect of which the bet is made. If the outcome is known, the Operator may treat the bet as void.
7.8 The Operator reserves the right to make any amendments or corrections to any event information (including but not limited to the team names, event time, venue, league title) displayed on the Internet Betting Service at any time. In such circumstances an electronic announcement will be displayed on the Internet Betting Service.
7.9 In order to make a bet, there must be available Betting Funds in the relevant Customer's Account equal to or exceeding the amount of the stake. If the Customer's available Betting Funds do not cover the aggregate stakes wagered at any one time, the Operator will refuse the bets.
7.10 All prices, odds or handicaps quoted are subject to variation and become fixed only at the time when a bet is accepted by the Operator. Where a manifest error (whether caused by human error or otherwise) or systems failure results in incorrect prices, odds or handicaps being offered or produces incorrect or erroneous game results, any bet (or part of a bet) made on the basis of them will be void. If such error is noticed beforehand, the Operator will use all reasonable endeavours to notify the Customer concerned in order to enable him to place another bet at the correct prices, odds or handicaps and, in the case of interactive betting games, the Operator will immediately void the game and return all bets placed to the Customer's Account.
7.11 Where a bet is settled incorrectly due to, for example, an erroneous result being recorded on the Internet Betting Service, such settlement will be invalid and reversed. If the Customer has insufficient Betting Funds to permit such a reversal, they will be required to return the erroneously credited funds in accordance with Clause 12.6.
7.12 The Operator may, at any time, in its absolute discretion and without giving any reason or advance notice, suspend a market, cease betting on a market, refuse to accept any bet or any part of a bet and/or suspend or close any Customer's Account.
8 PLACING A BET
8.1 Bets may only be placed via the Website, the WAP Site or such other platforms employed by the Operator unless an alternative prior arrangement has been made with the Operator (the "Betting Method").
8.2 A bet is accepted only when confirmed by the Operator via the Betting Method (that is, when the bet appears in the bet list of the Customer's Account under the item "Accepted" and an identification number has been allocated to it).
8.3 If a bet is declared "invalid" or "void" for the purposes of these terms and conditions, it will be evaluated at odds of 1.00. For individual bets, the stake will be refunded with 1.00 odds to the Customer's Account. For combination bets, the total odds of the combination bet will be recalculated with 1.00 odds of the selection that has been declared invalid or void.
8.4 The deadline for placing bets will in each case be determined by the Operator. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if a bet (other than a Live bet as stated on the Website) is placed after the commencement of the event in respect of which the bet is made, the bet will be invalid and will be evaluated at odds of 1.00. For events for which no official start is declared, the generally advertised start time (as determined by the Operator) for the event will be deemed to be its commencement time. Disputes over the times when bets are placed will be finally settled by reference to the Operator's transaction log.
8.5 The Customer will be responsible for ensuring that their bets are correct. Bets placed and accepted within the relevant time limit may not be revoked or changed except as expressly provided in these terms and conditions.
8.6 The Operator assumes no responsibility for:-
(a) typing, transmission and/or evaluation errors in respect of any bets and will be entitled (after the event, if necessary) to correct manifest errors relating to odds or the reporting of results;
(b) the accuracy, completeness or currency of the information services provided (in particular but without limitation, for information provided by third parties);(c) the accuracy of live scores, statistics and intermediate results in respect of all betting.
9 RESULTS AND EVALUATION OF BETS
The Operator will evaluate Customers' Accounts depending on the results of the bets they place. In doing this the Operator recognises only the official results achieved in the field of play and/or the outcome of the randomly generated results of the interactive games and/or the race events and/or the financial betting products for settlement purposes. Subject as otherwise provided in these terms and conditions, the Sports Betting Rules or the Games Betting Rules or the Racing Betting Rules or the Financial Betting Rules (collectively referred to as the “Betting Rules & Regulations”), the winner of an event is the participant whom the relevant official decision-making body declares to be the official winner at the termination of the event (according to the time of the venue for the event), as reported on the official websites of the tournament organisers or by the relevant press agency or association of the country where the event takes place. In the case of Random Number Generator ("RNG") games, the Customer acknowledges that the Operator's RNG and other randomly generated events are part of the Internet Gaming Service and that the Customer agrees to accept such randomly generated results performed by the RNG, as final and conclusive. In the event of a manifest error and where the correct outcome is available on a video recording or in the public domain, the Operator shall use its best endeavours to determine the correct outcome to be used to determine the winner and/or the result of the bets placed. In such cases, the Operator's decision shall be final. Changes in results, rankings or the order of competitors made after that time for any reason whatsoever (including, without limitation, disqualification, disciplinary decision, tribunal or court decision or appeal) will be disregarded for the purposes of deciding the outcome of the bet. In case of any violation of sports or race laws, the Operator will be entitled to freeze and withhold any winnings for such period as it will think fit or indefinitely. (For more information see the Betting Rules & Regulations.)
10 CALCULATION OF, AND LIMITS ON, WINNINGS
10.1 For bets with fixed odds, the winnings are calculated by multiplying the stake by the prescribed odds or prices displayed at the time when the bet is accepted by the Operator.
10.2 Winnings from settled bets will be credited to the Customer's Account. Winnings cannot be transferred, substituted, or redeemed for any other prize. Any applicable taxes and fees in connection with any winnings are the Customer's sole responsibility.
10.3 The Operator reserves the right to impose limits on the winnings accruing from any one bet placed on a particular event or sport (regardless of the stake or whether the bet has been placed through more than one separate channel), such limit to be notified by the Operator from time to time.
10.4 If the Customer places a successful bet, the winnings for which exceed the limits set out in this Clause 10, the Operator will only be liable to pay up to such limit and the balance of the bet. The Operator will not be liable to pay any winnings in excess of this.
10.5 The Operator reserves the right to impose limits on the winnings accruing from the successful bets made by any one Customer in any twenty four hour period or in any one week (Monday 0:01 hours until Sunday 24:00 hours (Greenwich Mean Time) (regardless of the stake or whether the bet has been placed through more than one separate channel) and in order to determine the timing of a relevant bet for this purpose, reference will be made to the time when the final event for such bet is resolved rather than the time when the bet is made.
10.6 The Operator may lay down limits on winnings for bets different from or additional to those specified in Clause 10.3, Clause 10.4 and/or Clause 10.5 and/or determine specific winning limits for individual Customers, subject to notifying such Customers.
10.7 If more than one bet and/or a combination of single and combination bets is placed with the same selections and the Operator determines or suspects that they have originated from a single Customer, or any Customer acting in collusion or as a syndicate with any other individual(s) or if a Customer has opened several Accounts and has placed the same bet on each of them contrary to these terms and conditions, without prejudice to any other remedies or rights the Operator may have in such circumstances, the Operator will be entitled to apply the relevant limits on winnings set out in this Clause 10 to the aggregate winnings on all such bets as if such bets were a single bet and/or to reduce the stake to the extent necessary in order to comply with such limits on winnings.
11 SPECIAL RULES FOR SPECIFIC SPORTS AND OTHER EVENTS
11.1 The Operator accepts bets for sporting, racing and other events available on the Website. All such bets are subject to the rules specific to each relevant sport, race or event or RNG game and it is the responsibility of each Customer to make himself aware of all such rules to the extent relevant to any bets they place.
11.2 Special rules relating to different types of sports, races and RNG games and which will apply to bets made on those sports, races or games are set out in the Betting Rules & & Regulations. These Betting Rules & Regulations may be amended at any time.
12 THE CUSTOMER'S REPRESENTATIONS

12.6 Should funds be credited to or debited from a Customer's Account in error, it is the Customer's responsibility to notify the Operator of the error without delay. Any sums credited to the Customer due to the error will be deemed invalid and must be returned to the Operator. Funds credited to an Account in error are not available to bet with and the Operator reserves the right to void any transaction involving such funds. For the avoidance of doubt, where the Customer has a credit balance and further sums are erroneously added to this, the Customer is permitted to transact up to the level of funds available in their Account excluding the erroneously added funds. The Customer agrees to indemnify the Operator for the return of any erroneously credited funds that the Customer has withdrawn.

14.2 The Operator will not be liable in contract, tort, negligence, or otherwise, for any loss or damage whatsoever arising from or in any way connected with the Customer's use of the Internet Betting Service, whether direct or indirect, including, without limitation, damage for loss of business, loss of profits, business interruption, loss of business information, loss arising from downtime or any other pecuniary or consequential loss (even where the Operator has been notified by the Customer of the possibility of such loss or damage).

RESPONSIBLE GAMBLING POLICY
1.1 The Operator maintains a strong commitment to provide the Customer with a responsible gambling environment. Although gambling should be enjoyed as a recreational activity, it can nevertheless also cause a problem for a minority of Customers.

As a responsible gambling operator, the well-being of the Operator's Customers is of utmost importance.

The Customer may opt to self exclude themselves from having access to the Internet Betting Facilities for a period of either 7 days, 30 days, 90 days or for a permanent self-exclusion you may email our customer service at [email protected]. The Customer may also set their own maximum value for their wagering activity for a 7 day period for Sports, Racing, Financials and Games separately.
