5.2.          You must also choose a Username and Password. We require that you:

5.2.1.        do not choose a Username that is obscene, threatening, racist, offensive, derogatory, defamatory, or infringes any intellectual property right or property right of a third party.

5.7.          We are entitled to refuse to open an Account for any reason, including failure to meet the Requirements.

5.8.          You must not authorise any third party to use your Account, and you will be entirely responsible for all losses which are incurred as a result of any use of your Account. You must immediately inform us if you suspect that another person has obtained access to your Account and provide all reasonable assistance to us while we investigate this issue.

6.     UPDATING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

6.1.          If you need to, you can edit some of your personal details in the “Your Account” section of the Website or by contacting Customer Service. Proof of identity may be required to process your request. You acknowledge that changes cannot be made to your first name, surname, and date of birth provided at registration unless you provide satisfactory evidence that they have been legally changed.

6.2.          You may also remove card and payment details at any time, and/or register a new card in the Cards and Payment section of your Account. However, please note that any missing information with regards to such changes may lead to transactions being rejected by your bank and we are not responsible for any losses incurred in connection with the amendment of your card and payment details.

6.3.          It is your responsibility to protect your bank card against loss or theft. You should immediately contact Customer Services if your card or bank account details have been lost or stolen.

6.4.          After five consecutive incorrect entries of a combination of the Username and Password, the Player's Account will be temporarily suspended for security reasons and We will require the Player to forward an official form of identity document that includes a photo (e.g. passport, identity card or driving licence) to be verified before the Account is reactivated.

6.5.          We will assume that all transactions made using the correct Username and Password are made by the rightful owner of the Account and are therefore valid. In no case is NetBet liable for losses incurred by the Player due to unauthorised use or misuse of their personal details. To protect NetBet and the Player against identity theft, We reserve the right to ask a Player, at any time, for proof of identity (e.g. passport, identity card, or driving licence), proof of address (utility bill or recent bank statement) and/or a copy of any payment cards used on the Website. Failure to produce the requested documents may result in NetBet suspending the Player's Account.

In this clause, relative means spouse, partner, parent, child, or sibling;

7.2.3.        you will not be the Account holder or if you are acting on behalf of a third party.

7.3.          We do not guarantee that the use of the Website by you is legal in any given territory. It is your responsibility to ensure the legality of your own actions.

We may also share information with credit reference and fraud prevention agencies for use in credit decisions, identification checks, and fraud detection and prevention purposes.

10.  OUR RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES

10.1.        Use of the Services is at your sole discretion and risk. You acknowledge that:

10.1.1.     when playing games of chance on the Services you are at risk of losing money. It is your sole responsibility to assume the losses suffered through your Account;

10.1.2.     it is your responsibility to note the pay-out rate or odds that apply to each game before you place a bet;

10.1.3.     pay-out rates and odds change from time to time;

10.1.4.     when you update a loss or stake limit whilst playing a game on the Websites, the loss or stake limit will not be updated until you close the current gaming session and start a new one;

10.1.5.     in the event of a conflict between the result posted on the Websites and the result shown on our server, the result posted on our server shall take precedence. You accept that the settlement of any dispute between us relating to the result of a bet or game will be determined based on the records kept by us.

10.2.        We reserve the right to:

10.2.1.     limit or refuse any bet or any other type of gamble made by you or through your Account.

10.2.2.     suspend, modify, end, revoke the use of and/or add elements to the Services, either temporarily or permanently, at any time without notice or compensation, subject to compliance with our regulatory obligations and subject to fulfilling all other commitments made under these Terms and Conditions.

10.3.        Notwithstanding the above, we are committed to paying all winnings obtained by you lawfully and in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.

We are required by the Gambling Commission to segregate Player funds into dedicated bank accounts. In this clause, “Player funds” means the aggregate value of funds held to the credit of NetBet users. NetBet holds Player funds separate from company funds in a dedicated bank account for the sole purpose of reimbursing users following the use of NetBet services. These funds cannot be used for operational expenses. All arrangements have been made to ensure Player funds in these accounts are distributed to Players in the event of insolvency or bankruptcy. This level of protection equates to the Gambling Commission’s “Medium protection” level rating of customer funds protection (for more information, see here).

11.  DEPOSITS

11.1.        When you open an Account, you need to make a minimum deposit of £10 before you can play or bet. All subsequent deposits will be subject to a minimum deposit amount of £10. You can make a deposit online at any time using your debit card, or via the other accepted payment methods as shown on the Deposits page in Your Account. We do not accept credit cards.

11.2.        We do not charge you for making a deposit. However, your bank may charge you a fee. You agree that any amounts deposited in your Account will not generate interest.

11.3.        When you first open an Account, there are no pre-set deposit limits. However, you can impose limits and other controls at the end of the registration process. Please see Section 21 for more information.

11.4.        It is unlawful for you to deposit funds obtained from criminal, illegal or fraudulent activities into your Account (or to attempt to do so). In addition to the identity and age verification checks set out above, we are required by law to undertake certain anti-money laundering checks to prevent such behaviour. Accordingly, all your transactions will be monitored by us and we reserve the right to raise queries regarding the source of funds used to make deposits into your Account. We may, acting reasonably, suspend or close any Account if we are unable to verify the source of funds.

11.5.        In addition, deposits made to your Account should be commensurate with gambling. If we reasonably suspect that your use of the Services is not for the purpose of gambling (for instance, where a deposited amount has not been used for an appropriate level of gameplay or betting and you then make a withdrawal request in relation to that deposited amount), we reserve the right, in our absolute discretion, to:

11.5.1.     repay the respective deposit(s), less any costs that may have resulted in conjunction therewith, void any bets and deduct associated winnings and suspend and/or close your Account;

11.5.2.     withhold such amounts until we complete any requisite checks to comply with our internal, regulatory, or legal requirements.

12.  WITHDRAWALS

12.1.        Any withdrawal request is subjected to a minimum amount of £10. If you want to withdraw an amount (excluding bonus monies) that is less than £10, you must contact Customer Services and you will need to pay any associated payment processing fees that we are charged in respect of the withdrawal.

12.2.        In order to cover the transaction costs, we will also charge a 1.5% fee on withdrawal requests of at least £500.

12.3.        The withdrawal fee will apply on the total withdrawal amount. Should your withdrawal be split between different payment methods, the total amount requested will be taken into consideration to calculate the fees and the fee will be applied proportionately to the split.

12.4.        We do not otherwise charge you to withdraw your funds. You will be clearly notified in the Withdrawal section of your Account if any withdrawal fees will be charged. It is possible that your bank or the payment solution may also charge you transaction fees, and these would be outside of our control.

12.5.        We only process withdrawal requests after:

12.5.1.     your identity has been verified in accordance with our customer verification policies and procedures;

12.5.2.     satisfactory proof of deposit has been provided if requested by us;

12.5.3.     your usage of the Services has been reviewed for any irregular playing patterns;

12.5.4.     we have checked that you have not made any chargeback requests for the funds.

12.6.        We reserve the right to carry out additional verification checks, including electronic checks provided by trusted third parties, required by applicable laws and regulations (including anti-money laundering) and/or by the relevant regulatory authorities. We are entitled to suspend or restrict your account in any manner that we may deem in our reasonable discretion to be appropriate, until such time as the relevant checks are completed to our satisfaction.

12.7.    If we reasonably suspect that your Account has been involved in any other suspicious activity, your Account will be suspended while our investigation is carried out into the circumstances surrounding the matter. While an Account is suspended, funds on the Account will be frozen and you will not be able to make withdrawals. Once the investigation is terminated and provided we have not reasonably verified that suspicious activity did in fact take place, the Account will be restored to normal and you can continue to make withdrawal requests in accordance with these Terms and Conditions.

12.8.    Other than in circumstances where we are undertaking a reasonable investigation in respect of the gambling transaction in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, all withdrawal payments will be processed by us within 2 to 48 hours. However, please be aware that receipt of the payment may be delayed by, for example, your bank's clearance time, especially during weekends and holidays.

12.10.   We only permit withdrawals to the bank accounts or other third-party wallets registered in your name, using the same method used for your deposit. Any withdrawal requests to another bank account or third-party wallet, or using a different method, are subject to approval at our discretion and we reserve the right to reject such a request. In such circumstances, we will ask you to propose another method for the withdrawal. To mitigate the risk of incomplete financial transactions to/from an expired debit or prepaid card, we will not process payments on any debit or prepaid card that is due to expire before the end of the month in which the deposit or withdrawal is initiated.

12.11.     Withdrawal requests that involve bonus funds are subject to bonus terms and conditions as listed in promotional offers and on our Websites, including Playthrough requirements. If you request the withdrawal of bonus funds before the Playthrough has been entirely met, we will deduct the entire bonus amount as well as any winnings from the use of the bonus amount before approving any withdrawal. Please see Section 13 for further information.

12.12.  You are responsible for reporting or declaring any funds withdrawn, including any winnings, if such reporting is required by local law, tax or other authorities. We are not responsible for any taxes that may be payable by you whether on any bets, on any winnings or otherwise.

13.  BONUS POLICY

13.1.        Bonuses are only available to registered Players. Some offers may be restricted to specific countries or jurisdictions.

13.2.        Each bonus, promotion and/or special offer is subject to its own specific terms and conditions, which will be made clear to you in the relevant offer. The conditions, amounts and release terms of bonuses, promotions and special offers are set at the discretion of NetBet and are non-negotiable.

13.3.        You acknowledge that you have read and understood the terms applicable to each bonus, promotion or special offer prior to taking part in the relevant bonus, promotion or special offer.

13.4.        Except where otherwise stated, all bonuses, promotions and special offers are limited to one per person, IP address, address and/or household, email address or payment method.

13.5.        Wagering requirements or Playthrough apply to our bonuses. Unless otherwise stated, bonuses awarded must be wagered a pre-defined number of times before associated pending winnings may be withdrawn. Wagering requirements will apply the time a bonus is accepted and/or credited to an account. If no such Playthrough requirement is expressly mentioned, the default Playthrough shall be:

13.5.1.     In respect to bonuses for sports betting – the Playthrough requirements as set out in paragraph 1.3 of the Sports Betting Special Terms.

13.5.2.     In respect to bonuses for poker – the Playthrough requirements as set out in paragraph 6 of the Poker Betting Special Terms.

13.5.3.     In respect to any other bets, including casino, Poker, Vegas, and side games – placing the bonus as a bet forty times.

13.6.        You will only be able to withdraw the winnings generated from any bonus after the applicable Playthrough requirement has been met. Any withdrawal request of monies linked to a bonus whose Playthrough has not been completed will invalidate the bonus including any winnings generated from the bonus.

13.7.        You may not participate in more than one bonus, promotion and/or special offer at the same time. If you trigger any other bonus, promotion and/or special offer while another is still active, the bonuses, promotions and/or special offers will queue in the Available Offers section of your Account.

13.8.        Deposits via Web-Wallets are not eligible to claim any deposit bonuses including a welcome offer or any other promotional reward code.

13.9.        When a Player confirms his participation in a bonus, promotion and/or special offer, any available cash balance will be used to wager first. Bonus funds are only used once your cash balance is exhausted or insufficient to meet the stake.

13.10.     We reserve the right to label a Player as a "Bonus Seeker" if a Player has abused any bonus, promotion and/or special offer, including, but not limited to, behaviours such as:

13.10.1.   If a Player only uses bonus coupons to play on their Account.

13.10.2.   If the bonus coupon amount is more than the total amount deposited by the Player.

13.10.3.   If a Player plays with or tries to play with more than one bonus per 24-hour period.

13.10.4.   If a Player plays £200 or more from a bonus coupon without making any deposits to his Account.

13.10.5.   A Player only plays with bonuses, while withdrawing all the minimum deposits made to access the promotions.

13.10.6.   A Player repeatedly uses a bonus, promotion and/or special offer.

13.11.     If we deem you to be a "Bonus Seeker", we reserve the right not to offer you any further bonus, promotion and/or special offer and at our discretion, suspend and/or cancel your Account.

13.12.     All promotions are available at the discretion of NetBet and We reserve the right to vary, cancel or discontinue a promotion or any part of it. This will not affect Players who made a deposit in expectation of receipt of a Bonus, and/or commenced play in relation to the Promotion prior to the date of the communication of the variation, other than where necessary to comply with legal and regulatory requirements, to prevent fraud or other similar unlawful behaviours.

13.13.     Although we make every effort to ensure their accuracy, sometimes a bonus or promotion of a special offer that is communicated to you may include typographical or design errors. In such situations, we may amend and correct the bonus, promotion, special offer and/or associated materials provided you have now already used the bonus, promotion or special offer.

13.14.     If technical issues arise such as disconnection, game freeze, or device issues during a bonus bet round, all game information and placed bets are stored until you re-open the exact same game. You may continue your unfinished round from the point of interruption by accessing the same game again. In the event that you are unable or fail to access the same game again and decide to place another bet elsewhere the meantime, the bonus balance will be voided and associated bonus winnings will be forfeited. This applies only to bets placed with bonus money. For real money bets, we may allow you to complete your unfinished round at any time and no potential associated winnings from real money bets are voided until you complete it. Where possible, customers will be informed via a pop-up message upon login and launching the game when an unfinished bonus round is to be completed. We will also tell you when a bonus round is forfeited.

21.4.        You can self-exclude for a period of a minimum of six months and a maximum of 5 years. When you contact us to apply for temporary self-exclusion, we will ask you to choose between withdrawing the positive balance in your Account to your bank account/wallet (depending on the payment method used) or leaving it in your Account during the period of exclusion. Positive balances will be returned to you in accordance with our usual policies and procedures in the event of a permanent self-exclusion.

21.5.        If you self-exclude, you may not open or utilise your Account during the period of this exclusion. During the exclusion period, all efforts will be made to exclude you from using the Services.

Additionally, it is the responsibility of the customer to update us with any changes to their personal details (i.e. name changes, moving addresses, etc.).

21.6.        At the end of the self-exclusion period, you may request to reactivate your Account by contacting Customer Support. We will not re-open any self-excluded Account until the expiry of the exclusion period, when you may contact us to re-open your Account. By law, we are required to provide you with a 24-hour cooling-off period, during which you may elect to keep the exclusion in place. Customers returning from a self-exclusion have a mandatory 90 day deposit limit of up to £250 imposed on them. Should the customer wish to increase this limit after 3 months, they can do so by contacting Customer Services. Such requests are subject to an internal review before being approved.

21.7.        If we determine in our reasonable discretion that you show signs of problem gambling and that any further use of the Services could be detrimental to your health and/or wellbeing then we reserve the right at our discretion, to block or close the Player's Account and return any positive balances to you in accordance with our usual withdrawal procedures.

APPENDIX A: SPORTS BETTING SPECIAL TERMS

Capitalised terms not defined in these Special Terms shall have the same meaning as defined in the Terms and Conditions.

1. RULES OF BETS

1.1.    Placing a bet

1.1.1.        All bets placed are between two parties: NetBet and the Player. Each bet is considered valid as soon as the Player confirms their bet on the Websites and as soon as the confirmed stake appears in the Player's Account. Once the bet is confirmed, the Player cannot cancel or change it.

1.1.2.        We reserve the right to refuse to accept bets without giving notice, justification, or compensation.

1.1.3.        The Player agrees, when placing a bet that:

1.1.3.1.        The bet is not affected by an event in which the Player is actively involved in any capacity whatsoever. In such cases, we reserve the right to void the bet(s) concerned.

1.1.3.2.        In cases where information on the likely outcome of a competition might be announced during the period that the bet is being confirmed, NetBet has the right to cancel the bet concerned. For individual bets, this means that we will refund the stake to the Player's Account. For multiple bets, the bets will not be cancelled, but the odds will be calculated without taking into account the odds of the bet which was declared void, for which the odds will be set at 1.00.

1.1.3.3.        we have the right to void a bet which is made on an event in which the results had been fixed or predetermined.

1.1.3.4.        NetBet indicates the time and the time limit after which it is no longer possible to place a bet, regardless of the real start time of the event. We enforce the rule that the winner of a specific competition is the person or team declared the winner at midnight on the day that the event ends. Any change of results or classification arising after this time limit, for example due to a disciplinary measure, has no impact on the outcome of the competition stated earlier.

1.1.3.5.        With the exception of bets placed on cricket, tennis and baseball matches, if an event (game or competition) is cancelled, postponed or pushed back to a later date, all bets already placed are still valid if the event takes place within 48 hours of its original commencement time. Otherwise, bets will be considered void. However, bets connected to results that have already been announced at the time of the suspension (for example: the result at half-time) will be paid as usual.

1.1.3.6.        For all cancelled or postponed baseball games, all bets that have already been placed remain valid if the event takes place within 12 hours of the originally scheduled start time; in all other cases, bets will be void.

1.1.3.7.        If competitions are presented incorrectly (for example: confusion between the home team/away team or an opponent who is not playing against the team shown), bets in relation to those competitions will be void.

1.1.3.8.        If at least two competitors are declared winners (tie), the odds will be recalculated so that the Player's winnings are divided by the number of tied winners. For example: In a Formula 1 race, a scenario in which Lewis Hamilton has odds of 6.00 to win and Fernando Alonso has odds of 3.00 to win. If the two cars cross the finish line at exactly the same time, both are winners. If the Player bets £5 on a Hamilton victory, the winnings will be calculated as follows: 5 x (((6-1) / 2) + 1) = £17.50 winnings. If the Player bets £10 on an Alonso victory, their winnings will be calculated as follows: 10 x (((3-1) / 2) + 1) = £20 winnings.

1.1.3.9.        If there are any mistakes/discrepancies with the names and numbers of a competitor, we will take the name of the competitor accounted for, for results of bets.

1.1.3.10.     For bets placed on a tennis match, if a participant in the match abandons the match, the bet will be void and will be refunded. If it is a system or combination bet, the odds are reset to 1.00.

1.1.3.11.     NetBet's recordings are definitive proof of the validity and limits of all the bets that Players place and the circumstances in which they were made.

1.1.3.12.     Although every effort is made to ensure that information displayed on the Websites with regard to an event is correct, it is to be used as a guide only. In the event that any information (score, time of game etc.) is incorrect we assume no liability for this.

1.2.    Winnings from Sports Bets

1.2.1.        Winnings will be automatically paid into the Player's Account as soon as possible after the event is completed and they can be used immediately to place other bets. Bets on Outright/Winner markets will only be settled and paid after all games are played and the league/event is over.

1.2.2.        We reserve the right to correct any potential calculation errors in the Player's Account balance at any time, including with respect to bets where winnings have been awarded. We will contact the Player with details of the corrections made.

1.2.3.        Maximum winning limits apply to any one Player, or group of Players acting together, who have placed bets containing the same selections, including where placed in a series of bets. In the interests of fairness, we endeavour not to accept bets where potential winnings exceed maximum winning limits. If the Player has placed several identical bets (single bets or combination bets, single or multiple) and the winnings exceed NetBet's limits, we reserve the right to reduce the stakes that the Player has placed on these bets so that the winnings are within NetBet's limits.

1.2.4.        The minimum stake for pre-live and live bets is £0.10.

1.2.5.        There is no maximum limit set for bets. However, we reserve the right to limit the maximum stake for some bets. If a Player places a bet with a stake that exceeds the limit set by us, the system will accept the bet only up to the limit of the maximum limit and inform the Player.

1.2.6.        You understand and agree that you will only be entitled to withdraw the winnings generated from bonuses (e.g. free bets) after you have completed the Playthrough for all bonuses received.

1.2.7.        You can only withdraw amounts you have won excluding your free bet amount, which cannot be withdrawn.

1.3.    Sports Bets Promotions

1.3.1.        A Player cannot use bonuses (e.g. free bets) to bet on combination bets unless a deposit has first been made.

1.3.2.        To withdraw winnings generated by using a bonus amount, the bonus (or other promotions) must be bet a certain number of times on one or more bets on different matches in order to meet the Playthrough requirements. The requirement will vary based on each single promotion. More information can be found in the Bonus section of our Terms and Conditions.

1.3.3.        Some promotions are restricted to customers who have received an email, SMS or push notification inviting them to participate. Those Players that have not been contacted will not be eligible to take part.

1.3.4.        If you have been notified of a restriction from free bets promotions, you will not qualify for any promotions. Please note that any such exclusion will not affect any free bet you have already placed and you will still be able to receive the benefits of any free bet promotion that you have started qualifying for or already qualified for prior to the restriction.

2. USE OF ACCOUNT BY THE PLAYER

2.1.            Bets are only valid if they are accepted by the NetBet servers. Until the bet is accepted by the NetBet server, all information regarding a bet or game simply represents an invitation to play and/or bet.

2.2.            To place a bet, the Player must have sufficient funds in their Account.

2.3.            Only bets placed from the Player's Account will be accepted and all the winnings that the Player has obtained from the Services will be credited to the Player's Account. Subject to this, the Player can make deposits or withdrawals on the page "My Account".

2.4.            We reserve the right to void, cancel or limit any bet, at the sole discretion of NetBet, for any reason whatsoever. If a bet is considered or declared to be invalid by us, the amounts deducted from the Player's Account for this bet will be credited to the Player's Account.

4.2.            Verification of win and transfer of funds. Upon the Pooled Jackpot being won, an automated pop-up will notify the winning Player that he/she has won the jackpot. The pop-up will indicate the value of the win in the Player currency. NetEnt will, as soon as reasonably possible, verify and validate the exact amount of the winning by calculating the number of rounds played up to the time the jackpot is won. The automatic pop-up does not confirm the jackpot has been won and is not to be paid to Players until NetEnt has completed sufficient checks to authenticate winnings and transfer funds.

4.3.            Once confirmed, the jackpot fund will be transferred in Euros and Players will support any risk resulting from any currency fluctuations in case their account is in another currency and has to be converted.
