9.1 Making Deposits
Payment methods can be found under both “My Account” and “Deposit” pages of the Site. The payment methods made available to you may change.
When choosing a payment method you agree to the terms of that payment method and agree to any charges that apply and that the payment method is valid and that the payment account or card belongs to you and you have the right to use the payment method. You can read the terms and charges (if any) of all payment methods available for deposit at the Deposit Options page.
It is unlawful to deposit money which has been obtained illegally.
We accept payments made in EUR or such other currency as is made available in the currency drop down from time to time. You must choose one currency as the currency of Your Account. Any payments received in a currency other than the one chosen by you will be converted into the currency of Your Account at the exchange rate we choose. Also, any exchange premiums are payable by you.
When payment is made using a credit card, we may request a certified copy of that credit card (front and back).Please ensure that only the first 6 digits and the last 4 digits of the card are visible and that the CVV /CVV2 number on the back of the card is also not visible.
We do not accept cash directly or cash delivered to any payment solution provider.
When the outcome of a Game you take part in is determined or, when we confirm the result of an event, any winnings will be made available to you on Your Account. Winnings up to EUR 720 are credited to Your Account immediately, and winnings from EUR 720 up to 14 300 are credited to Your Account within 24 h, provided there is no reason to believe or suspect that you are involved in fraud, collusion, illegal or dishonest practices.
If we mistakenly credit Your Account with winnings that do not belong to you for any reason, these will be taken back from Your Account. If you have withdrawn these winnings before we become aware of this error, you must immediately inform us and will be required to pay this back. If you do not we will take all legal action available to us to recover this debt.
You may withdraw any amount up to the “Available to Bet” balance in Your Account by issuing a valid notice of withdrawal. Notices for withdrawals must be made on the Site only.
You can read the terms and charges (if any) of all payment methods available for withdrawal at the Withdrawal Options page.
If you want to withdraw all your funds, you must first cancel any outstanding stakes. You agree that funds in Your Account must only be used for playing the Games found on the Site. If you request a withdrawal without turning over an amount that is equal or more than the amount deposited we can charge a fee on this withdrawal. We can reject a withdrawal request if we suspect that funds are being withdrawn for any fraudulent or money laundering reasons.
Prior to accepting a withdrawal we may request that you provide legal identification for example certified copies of passports or ID cards or other such documentation as we feel is required in the circumstances. We may also carry out phone verification, face verification or other such verification as is required to ensure that you are who you say you are.
If you withdraw an amount which cumulatively exceeds EUR 2,000 (or the equivalent in Your Account currency) we will carry out additional verification procedures. We may also carry out these verification procedures even in case of lower withdrawals. Where withdrawal is to be made using a credit card, we may request a certified copy of that credit card (front and back). Please ensure that only the first 6 digits and the last 4 digits of the card are visible and that the CVV /CVV2 number on the back of the card is also not visible.
You may only withdraw the maximum amount of Euro 50,000 (or the equivalent in Your Account currency) in any twenty-four hour period unless a larger amount has been agreed by us.
All withdrawals must be done through the same payment method chosen by you when placing a deposit, unless we decide otherwise or are unable to do so. If you deposit using a number of payment methods, we reserve the right to split your withdrawal across such payment methods and process each part through the respective payment method at our discretion and in accordance with anti-money laundering policies and regulation.
We may request that you redirect your withdrawal or cancel it or request that it is redirected to a different method of withdrawal in accordance with anti-money laundering polices and/or regulation. Cancellation of a withdrawal (whether this was made by you or us) does not entitle you to any compensation should you choose to play with the funds in Your Account before any withdrawal is completed.
If a chargeback on a card or depositing method you have used is requested by the payment method provider, we may take the following steps:
• We may block Your Account;
• We may take any such action as we are entitled to by law;
• A chargeback notice may be issued and sent to you, using your registration details;
• We will use the same payment method as chosen by you when placing a deposit in order to issue the chargeback;
If we are unable to confirm your identity and the payment method used in order to credit the account in question, we will send out two reminder emails and these will be subject to an administrative fee of fifty (50) euros each, withdrawn from Your Account funds which are unrelated to the chargeback.
The balance of Your Account may turn negative in cases of chargeback.

12.3 Matched bets on any Game (i.e. betting in proportions on different outcomes in the same hand to create "action" without risk) do not qualify for the bonus requirement. Examples of matched bets include betting on red and black simultaneously in Roulette, and betting player and banker simultaneously in Baccarat. Any players found to be colluding, for example, one person betting on the player, the other betting on the banker will have their accounts closed indefinitely, and all money frozen.
12.4 If you cancel the Bonus you will lose the Bonus and all winnings generated from the Bonus.
12.5 We have the right to refuse any player the right to make use of a Bonus or to alter the Bonus (including cancellation), if we believe that: the Bonus is being abused (our definition of abuse includes a player making use of promotional offers without ever risking their own funds); technical issues have occurred in relation to the Bonus; the Bonus is, for any reason, not able to be conducted as planned.
12.6 If there is any evidence of abuse or fraud, we will close Your Account and confiscate any existing funds.
12.7 We offer promotions in good faith to players who use our services for entertainment purposes. We reserve the right to cancel or remove a player’s access to these games in the case of suspected abuse of these offers and/or breach of general TnCs, and also, should we deem so necessary, terminate the offender’s account with immediate effect. In the case of an offender’s account being closed, we will not be liable to refund any losses made by a player on any games or to refund any balances on the players account. 'Abuse' includes but is not limited to using software and/or opening multiple accounts in order to gain an unfair advantage on a Bonus. In all cases of abuse, we retain the right to withhold all winnings and any balances remaining on Your Account.
Therefore: If we notice that a bonus is being abused and/or the bonus terms are being breached, we may take the following actions against such abusers:
• Revoke and / or cancel any bonuses and bonus winnings that we regard may have been redeemed by misuse of the system; and / or
• Players found to be abusing bonus offers may be barred from receiving further bonuses; and/or

• Wagering bonuses on excluded games,
• Manipulation of software, exploitation of loopholes or other technical forms of abuse or other behaviour which amounts to deliberate cheating,
• Masking IP address or using a VPN.
12.8 All promotions and Bonuses to be obtained within the promotions are intended for players who play for entertainment and want to use the specific promotion by registering in accordance with the rules of the promotion. Promotions, inter alia, in the form of Bonuses, include our specified discounts on gambling bets and other special terms, and we therefore reserve the right to restrict eligibility to use in all or in part any Bonus or promotion.
12.9 Irregular Play. At any time, we may decide to review all records and play transactions and / or to monitor your use of any Bonus or Bonuses. If Irregular Play (as defined below) is suspected, we reserve the right to disqualify you from any Bonus or other form of promotion and / or confiscate all deposits and / or winnings and / or close Your Account. Irregular Play is considered bonus abuse and is not permitted on the Site. Irregular Play can include (but is not limited to) low margin betting, equal betting, zero risk bets or hedge betting. These are considered Irregular Play when done purposely to exploit bonuses, in addition the following types of play are considered Irregular Play:
• increasing the balance and then changing your gaming pattern significantly (bet, game type, bet structure or other pattern of betting) to complete any requirements of any Bonus;
• using any betting system or placing even money bets on any game of chance.
13.1 Gambling can be addictive. If you need some help to overcome such addiction, kindly follow this link which will direct you to our responsible gaming page on the Site. Please always gamble responsibly.
You may impose limits on Your Account. These limits are:
13.2.1 Net Deposit Limit
You may choose to limit your maximum losses. This limit will automatically block any further deposits made if the net deposit limit (deposits-withdrawals) set, has been exceeded for that selected time frame.
13.2.2. Session Time Limit
You may choose to limit the time you spend enjoying our Games. This pop up will appear reminding you of the time limit you imposed on yourself and will allow you to log you out of Your Account or continue enjoying our games. Kindly contact support to be able to set this limit.
13.2.3 Betting Limit
You may choose to limit the amount you can bet or the number of bets you can place on a daily basis. On registering Your Account, you will be required to set this limit and specify:
• Whether it will apply on the value of a single bets placed (e.g. €1,000) or the number of bets you can place (e.g. 500 bets), and
• Your chosen limit amount/number.
This limit will block any bets that will result in the limit being exceeded. For Poker, each transfer to the table is considered as a bet, and where your limit is set to limit the amount (in €) you can bet, the bet amount will be calculated as the amount transferred to the table. For all other Games, each separate bet is considered for the limit, and where your limit is set to limit the amount you can bet (in €), the bet amount will be calculated as the amount wagered on the bet.
13.2.4 Changing Your Limits
If you change your mind, these limits can be changed by letting us know via e-mail. Increasing or revoking a limit shall have effect only after seven (7) days have elapsed since the request was made, whereas decreasing a limit shall have effect immediately.
