If you are found by us to be under the Minimum Age, or allowing another individual under the Minimum Age to participate in Wagering, or if we suspect that you are not of the Minimum Age, we may terminate your account and any winnings will be null and void.

We may refuse to refund any Bonuses or winning funds provided to or gained by a Member in violation of these Terms.

5.2 When considering your Member registration application and certain deposit and withdrawal transactions, we may use independent risk management providers or credit reference agencies to verify your age, name and address or any other information that you provide to us. In performing these checks, the risk management provider or credit reference agency may keep a record of your information. The purpose of such checks is to confirm your age, identity and geographic location only. Such checks should not impact your credit score or creditworthiness. These checks enable accounts to be opened more quickly, reduce the need to obtain age and identification documents and assist us with our age verification licensing obligations and crime and fraud prevention program.

5.3 If we cannot satisfactorily complete our age and identity verification process, we may ask you to provide personal identification documents to further confirm and validate your age and identity. Such checks may include (but may not be limited to): (a) proof of your age (with a passport or any other government issued identity document providing your date of birth); (b) proof of your address (with a current utility bill or a bank or card statement); and (c) proof of your identity (with a valid government ‑issued identity card, driver’s license, passport identification We may request notarized document copies, meaning the documents must be stamped and attested to by a notary public.

Should the documents fail our internal security checks (for example, if we suspect that the documents have been tampered with or are in any way provided to mislead or misrepresent), we will be under no obligation to accept such documents as valid and will be under no obligation to provide feedback on the exact nature of our findings with regard to the documents. We may suspend your account until you have satisfactorily completed these checks or we may terminate your account.

We will communicate all requests to you via the Platform and/or by email, phone, SMS or post.

5.4 You understand and agree to us performing background checks on you for any reason related to the services at any time, including any identity checks or any inquiries into your personal history, which may include accessing financial information where publicly available.

We will be under no obligation to advise you of such checks taking place and we may use third party companies and social media sites in conducting such checks. Following such checks, we may decide in our sole discretion to: (a) restrict the amount you may deposit and Wager and/or the frequency of your Wagering activity for a specific or indefinite period of time; and/or (c) suspend your account and withhold all funds.

8.2.3 You are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You agree to: (a) never allow anyone to have access to your account; (b) immediately notify us if you become aware or suspect any unauthorized use of your username, password or account, or any other breach of security; and (c) ensure that you log out of your account at the end of each session. You are always responsible for use of your account by yourself and others, including those persons that gained unauthorized access to your account through your acts and omissions. You must monitor your account to prevent its use by another person, and maintain the physical and logical security of your devices, access points, username and password at all times and not divulge your username or password to third ‑parties.

8.3 Responsible Account Management: You are responsible for the security of your username and password on your own computer and any device on which the Platform is or may be accessible including an Internet access location. It is your responsibility if your username and password combination is “hacked,” which may result from a virus or malware present on the computer or mobile device from which you access your account, or through reuse of passwords and/or phishing. You should report any possible hacking attempts or security breaches from your computer or mobile device immediately to us. It is your responsibility to maintain the physical and logical security of and to configure your computer’s and/or mobile device’s auto-‑lock features to protect from unauthorized access and use. We take no responsibility for any third party access to your account where your negligence or deliberate act has contributed to such third party access and under no circumstances will we be liable for any losses incurred by you as a result of misuse of your username or password by any person or for any unauthorized access to your account (unless this is due to our negligence). All transactions where your username and password have been entered correctly by a third party will be regarded as valid, whether or not authorized by you. We will not be liable if you misplace, forget, or lose your username or password because of anything other than our error.

8.4 If you misplace, forget, or lose your username or password, you can retrieve or reset this information via the ‘My Account’ section of your account or by contacting our Customer Support team here or via live chat.

9. RESPONSIBLE GAMING

9.1 Responsible Gaming Policy: As part of our Responsible Gaming Policy, we provide you with the ability to control and limit your spending, and options to temporarily time out of accessing to your account and an option to self-‑exclude and close your account for a set period of time. To view our Responsible Gaming Policy and for more details on how you can control your gambling please visit here.

9.2 Break in Play/Account Timeout: You may temporarily exclude yourself from the Platform by selecting one of the options available under “Account Cool Off” for periods of one (1) day, or one (1) week, or one (1) month, or two (2) months, or three (3) months by accessing the Responsible Gaming page here. On confirming the break in play period, your Member account will be immediately suspended and it will not be possible for you to login to your Member account or place any further Wagers until the selected duration has expired. Please note that when you select a break in play period, it will only apply to the Member account that you are logged into at the time and will not apply to accounts on other Platforms, where applicable, or if you have more than one Member account in breach of these Terms. It is not possible for us to override or remove any break in play period once set. Any balances and any advance Wagers that you have placed will remain and any winnings will be credited to your Member account. You can only access your winnings after the break in play period has expired, however, you may also contact our Customer Support Team, at support@on.ballybet.ca or live chat, to withdraw any funds in your Member account. Where you have confirmed the break in play, all Bonuses, rewards and entries in any reward schemes, promotions and competitions cannot be cancelled, but you will not be able to access them during the break in play period. It is possible that Bonuses may expire during the break in play period and we cannot reinstate these if the Member account is reopened after the break in play period. We will take all reasonable precautions to ensure you are not able to gamble during the break in play period but, provided we have taken all reasonable precautions, we are not liable to you if you circumvent our procedures.

9.3 Deposit and Loss Limit and Frequency Control: Our Deposit Limit and Frequency Control tool enables you to specify the maximum amount you can deposit over a set period of time. You can read more about and set a deposit limit, loss limit and frequency control limit on your Member account by accessing the Responsible Gaming page here. You can set or decrease such limits at any time with immediate effect and deposit or loss limits can be for a period of twenty ‑four (24) hours, or seven (7) days or one (1) month. Please note that when you select a deposit limit or loss limit or frequency control limit, it will only apply to the Member account that you are logged into at the time, and will not apply to accounts on other Platforms, or if you have more than one account in breach of these Terms. Where a gaming limit has been previously established by a Member, a request by the Member to relax or eliminate that limit shall only be implemented after a cooling-‑off period of at least twenty ‑four (24) hours. We will take all reasonable precautions to ensure your deposit limit, loss limit, or frequency control limit is observed but, provided we have taken all reasonable precautions, we are not liable to you if you circumvent our procedures and/or deposit funds into your Member account that exceeds your limits.

9.4 Loss Limits: Loss Limits lets you specify the maximum amount of Member deposits that you put at risk (i.e. potentially lose over a daily, weekly, or monthly period), applying to the balance between the amount spent on Wagering and the amount won during the defined time period. Further information on Loss Limits is made available in the FAQs. We will take all reasonable precautions to ensure your Loss Limit is observed but we are not liable to you if you circumvent our procedures to exceed your self-imposed Loss Limit.

9.5 If you wish to increase your limits or remove your self-‑exclusion, Regulators’ regulations may require that you must wait until your current limit or self-‑exclusion expires before the new limit will take effect or activity is permitted.

9.6 Self-‑Exclusion:

9.6.1 We provide a self-‑exclusion facility. On request, we will suspend access to your Member account (by way of self-‑exclusion) for a minimum period of six (6) months, or one (1) year, or five (5) years, during which time it will not be possible for the Member account to be accessed by you for any reason. You can also request to close your Member account at any time by contacting Customer Support here with the username or registered email details of the Member account you wish to close. Please ensure you quote the reference ‘Self-‑Exclusion’ in all correspondence to ensure your Member account is closed for the correct reason.

9.6.2 Upon self-‑excluding, access to your account will be revoked with immediate effect. All future transactions on the Platform will be cancelled and, if requested by you, any remaining balances (less any active rewards) will be transferred to your bank card, bank account, or transferred to you through any other third party payment method which we will make available.

9.6.3 You acknowledge and agree that should you choose to self-‑exclude from the services, you will not be permitted, and you expressly agree not to attempt to access any account you have opened with us or use the Platform, to open or use a Member account that is operated by any company in Bally’s Corporation during your selected self-‑exclusion period, until such self-‑exclusion has been lifted and the original account reopened. Unless your self-exclusion has otherwise been reported to us by the Regulator, should you choose to self-exclude from the services, you acknowledge that we are required to report your self-exclusion to the Regulator. In the event you are in breach of the foregoing, we will be entitled to take Full Protective Measures against your account.

9.6.4 If you have previously self-excluded under our responsible gaming program under any other gaming operation, it is your responsibility to refrain from opening new accounts during the period of such exclusion. If you do open any new accounts, we will close all accounts as soon as detected. Neither we nor any of our Affiliates will be obligated to refund you any funds you may have Wagered or won through such account.

9.7 Member accounts suspended due to self-‑exclusion cannot be re‑opened for any reason until the self-‑exclusion period has expired. Upon expiry of the self-‑exclusion period you may request to re‑open a suspended Member account by contacting Customer Support here with the details of the Member account you wish to re‑open.

9.8 We take responsible gaming very seriously and may, in addition to the above, if we have serious concerns regarding the level of your gambling, close your account and refund any deposit balance and winnings (if any) to you at any time.

9.9 Please refer to our Responsible Gaming Policy for further player protection information here. Any accounts that we detect that contravene our Responsible Gaming Policy will be closed. If you breach our Responsible Gaming Policy, we may suspend any accounts that you may hold including any account you may hold with us.

9.10 “Fit to Play” Acknowledgment: Before the start of each gaming session, prior to a Member participating in any game play, a Member must affirm that they are fit to play.

9.11 If you or someone you know has a gambling problem and wants help: (a) call Connex Ontario: 1‑866‑531‑2600 or text Connex to 247247 or visit https://www.connexontario.ca/en‑ca/ .

10. ACCOUNT PAYMENTS AND WITHDRAWALS

10.1 Registered Name: You can only use payment methods registered in your own name to make deposits and request withdrawals.

10.2 Account Duration: These Terms and the Additional Terms will be in full force and effect immediately upon your completion of the registration process and will continue in full force and effect, and as updated from time to time, unless and until terminated in accordance with these Terms.

10.3 Deposit Methods: Each deposit into your account must be from a single payment source on which you are a named account holder. We do not charge you to deposit to or withdraw from your account. We accept no responsibility for any currency exchange conversions, charges or fees levied by your card issuer, bank or financial institution.

10.4 Minimum and Maximum Deposits: All deposits are subject to minimum and maximum limits per transaction, which limits may vary depending on the payment method used. Full details can be found in ourFAQs. We may limit any Member’s deposits on any single day. We may also restrict the amount you may deposit in accordance with Section 5.4.

10.5 Online Wagering only: You may only place Wagers via the Platform. Attempts to place Wagers through any other medium, including telephone, fax or mail, will not be accepted.

10.6 Illegal Wagering is Void: We may, in our sole discretion, declare any Wager as void if a Member is identified as Wagering illegally, in which event no winnings will be paid. We do not accept liability for any breach by you of the applicable laws, including but not limited to, adjustment of a VPN (virtual private network) in an attempt to appear to be located in the province of Ontario, the creation of end user accounts using fraudulent and/or stolen user details or the attempted use of the Platform as a means of depositing funds obtained from criminal, illegal or fraudulent activities. If we, on reasonable evidence, identify you as playing illegally, we will declare any Wager and winnings made or received whilst playing illegally, as void.

10.7 Interest on Member Account Funds: We are not a financial institution. Interest will not be payable on monies held in accounts as these are merely advance payments for intended Wagering.

10.8 Payment Transactions: We may use third party electronic payment processors and/or financial institutions to process payments made by and to you in connection with your use of the Platform. To the extent that they do not conflict with the terms of these Terms, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of such third party electronic payment processors and/or financial institutions.

10.9 Fraudulent and Suspicious Transactions: You agree not to make or attempt to make any chargebacks, and/or deny or reverse any payment that you have made. You will be required to reimburse us for any chargebacks, denial or reversal of payments you make and any resulting loss suffered by us. If we are notified of any suspected or fraudulent payment (including use of stolen credit cards) or any other fraudulent activity (including any chargeback or other reversal of a payment), we may suspend, close or take Full Protective Measures against your account, reverse any withdrawal made and recover any winnings. Under no circumstances will we or our Affiliates or our third party service providers be liable for any unauthorized use of credit or debit cards, irrespective of whether or not the credit or debit cards were reported stolen.

10.10 Payment Withholdings: We may, in our sole discretion, cease to provide the Platform or withhold payment to certain Members or to Members paying with certain credit cards or third party payment methods. We may also temporarily withhold payment of your deposit balance and winnings (if any):

10.10.1 until verification in accordance with our age and identity verification and anti-‑money laundering obligations (as further set out above) has been completed. Upon verification being completed, we will process the payment of the withheld amount to you; or

10.10.2 up to any amount proportionate to our loss as a result of such breach, if based on reasonable evidence we find that you have seriously breached these Terms and Conditions; and

10.10.3 to the extent we are required to do so by law and/or instructed to do so by Regulators.

10.11 Minimum and Maximum Withdrawals: All withdrawals are subject to minimum and maximum limits per transaction, which limits may vary depending on the payment method used. Full details can be found in ourFAQs. We may limit any Member’s withdrawals on any single day where permitted by Applicable Laws.

10.12 Confirmation of Withdrawal Requests: Unless otherwise prohibited pursuant to these Terms, if you have submitted a request to make a withdrawal via an online payment method, you will see a confirmation message that the transfer has been processed and your balance will immediately clear to the balance of the amount not withdrawn. Only Cash may be withdrawn from your account. Bonuses are not available for withdrawal unless otherwise stated in the Bonus Terms.

10.13 Withdrawal Authorization and Payment: We try to authorize your withdrawal request within twenty ‑four (24) hours of our receipt of your request. Payments generally will be made as soon as reasonably possible, which may require three (3) to five (5) business days’ internal processing time. If at the time of a withdrawal request, you have any deposits which are pending receipt of confirmation of funds depending on the deposit method used, we reserve the right in our sole discretion to delay any withdrawal payment until such deposited funds have been confirmed by your financial institution.

10.13.1 For security reasons, Members making withdrawals may have to provide some additional information to ensure stringent safeguards are maintained. We are not responsible for any delays in processing your withdrawal requests if you do not receive or respond to our requests for information. Should you fail to provide us with, or fail to verify the authenticity of, any documents requested, we reserve the right in our sole discretion to cancel a withdrawal request. Depending on the outcome of these verification checks, you may or may not be permitted to deposit further monies with the debit card or other deposit methods previously used by you. Once your withdrawal has been approved, we are not responsible for any third party financial clearing process that delays your payment being received, including any delays caused by a payment processor, a credit or debit card issue, as applicable, or the custodian of a segregated account.

10.13.2 We may decline to honor the request for withdrawal for a reasonable investigatory period where we believe in good faith that you have engaged in fraudulent conduct or other conduct that would put us in violation of any regulatory obligation until our investigation is resolved if we provide notice of the nature of the investigation to you.

10.13.3 Incorrect Account Information: It is your responsibility to submit the correct bank account details for payment of withdrawals. We cannot repay payments made by us to another account due to incorrect account details provided by you. If a payment is unsuccessful and returned to us by our bank payment processor, we will investigate such payment, notify you and request corrected bank account details. Such unsuccessful payments will only be credited to your corrected account details once we have been notified by our bank payment processor that the payment has been successfully retrieved.

10.14 You authorize our third party payment vendors to initiate debit and credit entries to the account at the depository financial institution for which you have provided information. The debit for a transaction can post at your financial institution within twenty-four (24) hours after you initiate a transaction. You further authorize all transactions at any participating third party payment vendor to be debited from the same checking account, and such future debits will take place only when initiated by you. Your authorization will remain in effect until such third party payment vendor received written notification by you of its termination and up to thirty (30) days has been allowed to process the request. You understand that checks or debits returned unpaid by your financial institution are subject to a service charge, which also may be debited electronically from your account or collected using a bank draft drawn from your account.

10.15 Uncollected or Reversed Deposits: If any deposit is charged back or is otherwise deemed uncollectable for any reason, any and all winnings generated from play or Wagers conducted from such account from the time of the applicable deposit until its reversal or uncollectability will be invalidated, forfeited and/or deducted from your account balance. In addition, the amount of the initial failed deposit will be invalidated, forfeited and/or deducted from your account balance. In the event that your account balance is not sufficient to collect such forfeitures through deductions, you expressly acknowledge and agree that we may collect any monies owed by you to us from you and from any accounts of which you make us aware, including accounts provided in connection with the services or financial institution accounts, without any further notice being required. You expressly acknowledge and agree that, in the event of non‑payment of debt, we may proceed to enforce our rights, which may include legal action and attendant cost and attorneys’ fees. In such event you agree that in addition to any other amounts due to us, you will pay all legal fees and costs paid by us in collecting any amounts due from you. You further expressly acknowledge and agree that, in the event of non‑payment of debt, we may, at our sole discretion, assign such debt to one or more collection agencies. Note that following the assignment of such debt to a collection agency, the resolution of such debt and any associated legal processes associated are not within our control and must be negotiated or resolved directly with the collection agency. We reserve the right to suspend or close the account(s) associated with the uncollected or reversed deposit.

10.16 Member Account Statement: You may request a statement detailing your account activity, including your deposits, withdraws, winnings or loss, current balance and self-imposed limit history (if applicable), by contacting our Customer Support team at support@on.ballybet.ca.

11. CLOSING ACCOUNTS

11.1 Account Closure: We may temporarily suspend or permanently close your account at any time without providing any reason.

11.2 How to Close Your Member Account: You can close your account and request payment of outstanding funds at any time by contacting our Customer Support team here or via live chat with the username or registered email details of your account. Such closure will occur as soon as possible after our receipt of your request and we will confirm the closure of your account by email. You remain responsible for any activity on your account between your request and the closure of your account by us.

11.3 Temporary or Permanent Self-‑Exclusion from Your Member Account : If you wish to temporarily exclude yourself from the Platform or enter into self-‑exclusion, please see Section 9.

11.4 Dormant Accounts: If you do not log into your account for a period of three (3) years or greater, your account will be deemed dormant (a “Dormant Account”) and closed. We will make reasonable efforts to contact you to return any unclaimed funds where required and permitted by Applicable Laws. Any funds remaining in such Dormant Account after 120 days of attempting to contact you and any pending Wagers will be forfeited. Such funds will be remitted to the Regulator where required by Applicable Laws.

11.5 Effect of Account Closure:

11.5.1 Provided that you have complied with these Terms and the Additional Terms, and provided the funds in your account have not been forfeited as indicated above, upon your request, your outstanding funds, as recorded on our systems less any active Bonuses, will be returned by us by issuing checks by mail or by another payment method used by you and us as we make available from time to time such as by bank transfer, subject to our right to deduct any amounts by you to us.

11.5.2 Closure of an account will automatically render any unsettled Wagers and entries in any offers, promotions or competitions void. We cannot reinstate these if the account is subsequently reopened.

11.5.3 In addition to terminating your access to the services, we reserve the right in our sole discretion to prevent you from accessing the Platform and the services as well as any Group Platform or servers, and you will have no claims against us in such regard.

11.5.4 Upon the closure of your account and the termination of these Terms, you will:

11.5.4.1 discontinue the use of the Platform and the services;

11.5.4.2 pay all amounts due and owing to us; and

11.5.4.3 remove and permanently delete any software in the Platform that you downloaded to your computer equipment and/or mobile device and destroy all related documentation in your possession, custody, power or control.

11.6 Reopening‑ Your Member Account: You may request to re‑open a closed account by contacting our Customer Support team here or via live chat with the details of the account you wish to re‑open. We will review all requests to re‑open a closed account. Accounts closed as part of our Responsible Gaming policy cannot be re‑opened for any reason until the self-‑exclusion or time out period has expired. Please also see Section 9 for further information on Responsible Gaming.

12. ACCEPTANCE AND VALIDATION OF WAGERING

12.1 Accepted Wagers:

12.1.1 You acknowledge and agree that a Wager you place via the Platform is a binding and irrevocable offer to place the Wager. We reserve the right at any time to limit or refuse to accept the Wager.

12.1.2 A Wager is only accepted via the Platform when you receive confirmation from us by way of on‑screen display that the Wager has been accepted. Any Wagers attempted by any other method will not be accepted. At the time of acceptance, the amount of the Wager has been accepted by our servers and will be charged against your account.

12.1.3 You are responsible for reviewing your Wagers prior to and after placement in order to verify each Wager was successfully made and is accurate. You must immediately notify us regarding any error or discrepancy.

12.1.4 All Wagers are final. We cannot cancel or refund Wagers once they have been confirmed by us unless the Wager is declared void for any reason set out in these Terms or the Additional Terms. We accept no responsibility for Wagers that may have been submitted and not confirmed by our systems or otherwise accepted by us. You may choose to decide to Cash Out your Wager if this option is made available to you.

12.2 Minimum and Maximum Wagers: Minimum and maximum Wager amounts apply depending on the Product, unless otherwise specified. We may also restrict the amount you may Wager and/or the frequency of your Wagering activity in accordance with Section 5.4.

12.3 Deduction of Wagers / Unresolved Wagers: The cost of a Wager will be deducted from your account at the time of placing your Wager, no matter when the result is determined. We cannot refund Wagers purchased for future plays that have not yet been Settled or where you decide to Cash Out your Wager if this option is made available to you in accordance with the Sports House Rules. Any winnings related to such Wagers will be credited to your account once they have been Settled.

12.4 Our right to Cancel / Terminate Products: We may cancel, amend, remove or terminate any Product, or amend any Wager limit on your account, at any time in our sole discretion without notice. If a Product is cancelled, amended, removed or terminated in a way that makes it impossible to Settle a Wager that you placed, then that Product will be deemed null and void and the Wager will be credited back to your Member account.

12.5 Our right to postpone Products: We may postpone or pause any Product at our sole discretion. In this case, any Wagers for the postponed Product shall still stand and the Product will be executed at the new time set by us.

13. PAYMENT OF WINNINGS

13.1 Crediting Winnings: Winnings due on Wagers placed through your Member account will be credited to your current deposit balance automatically. This update of your account is not ‘proof of win’. If upon manual review there is evidence of fraud, Malfunction or malpractice, we may void certain Wagers and winnings and amend Member accounts accordingly.

13.2 Rounding of Winnings: We use a Wager multiplier to calculate and accumulate gaming odds and it is therefore possible that for certain Products, winnings pay outs can be displayed for presentational clarity having been rounded down to two decimal places. However, our (and/or any other Service Parties’) servers calculate and record the exact decimal value of the accumulated payouts and Members’ balances.

13.3 Taxation on Winnings: Any applicable taxes and fees and related regulatory reporting obligations in connection with any winnings awarded to you are your sole responsibility, and you hereby release us from any liability associated with this or any related actions taken by us.

13.4 Our decision is final: You agree that we and the applicable Service Parties’ records shall be the final authority in determining the terms of any Products, any Wagers you place, the circumstances in which such Wagers were placed, and the outcome of the same, subject to your right to make a complaint.

13.5 Wager Settlement: Unless expressly stated otherwise in the Sports House Rules, all Wagers are Settled according to the price shown at the time of Wager acceptance, subject to any Malfunction error corrections and Cash Outs. In limited circumstances, after your Wager has been accepted, the odds may show in the current Wagers and Wager history section of your account as rounded slightly down. This rounding display does not affect the payment of your Wager, which will be Settled at the correct odds (at the time your bet was accepted).

13.6 Wager Result Acceptance: By placing any further Wagers with us, you accept the results of any previous Wager.

13.7 Progressive Jackpots: We may choose to make available to Members pooled Progressive Jackpots across networks and services owned and operated by Bally’s Corporation and third parties. We may remove (or ‘decommission’) Progressive Jackpots at any time (including before the Progressive Jackpot has been won). Where we do so and a live Progressive Jackpot contains player contributions, we will always re‑distribute such contributions fairly according to the circumstances.

13.8 Progressive Jackpot Winnings: All Progressive Jackpot winnings will be subject to our confirmation. Our decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into, subject to your right to make a complaint.

13.9 Progressive Jackpot Accuracy: We use reasonable endeavours to ensure that the Progressive Jackpot value displayed in a Game matches the value on the Game server. However, it is the Progressive Jackpot value on the server that is used when the Progressive Jackpot is paid out. A small discrepancy may arise due to the delay between the initial Progressive Jackpot being displayed to you and the Progressive Jackpot that is actually won and paid out. Although unlikely, it is theoretically possible for the Progressive Jackpot to appear to be won by more than one Member during the delay period mentioned above. If more than one Member appears to win a Progressive Jackpot simultaneously, then the Member recorded on our servers and/or our Game or Service Parties’ servers as having won the Progressive Jackpot first, shall be the recipient and the subsequent Member(s) shall win the value of the Progressive Jackpot when reset. In the extremely unlikely event of the server recording a win truly simultaneously, we may share the Progressive Jackpot equally between the winning Members.

14. COMPETITIONS, PROMOTIONS AND BONUSES

14.1 From time to time we may offer certain Bonuses (including Bonus Money and Free Bets as defined in the Bonus Terms) and related offers, promotions and competitions from time to time. We may offer you the chance to enter competitions and promotions, or you may be automatically entered into a competition and/or promotion as a result of being a Member. We will provide the specific terms and conditions for such Bonuses, competitions and promotions at the relevant time and any other specific terms and conditions relating to the Bonuses that we publish on the Bally Bet Platform or otherwise including promotional and competition rules, bonus scheme rules, and loyalty scheme rules. You should therefore read these Terms and Conditions in combination with the applicable Specific Promotional T&Cs for any competition or promotion you wish to enter. Where such specific terms conflict with these Terms and Conditions, the Specific Promotional T&Cs will take precedence.

14.2 If you receive a Bonus, you must comply with the relevant terms set out in our Bonus Terms (as they are updated from time to time) (which can be found here). In addition, our decisions in respect of such Bonuses are final and binding in all respects.

14.3 Failure to comply with these Terms and Conditions and/or failure to comply with the applicable Specific Promotional T&Cs for a competition or promotion will automatically render your entry to such competition or promotion as void. In the event that we believe a Member is abusing or attempting to abuse or otherwise taking unfair advantage of an promotion or competition, such as participating in minimal risk Wagering (such as by placing opposite bets on the same Event) we may in our sole discretion deny, withhold or withdraw from any Member any offer, promotion, competition or Bonus, or rescind any term, condition, rule or policy with respect to that Member.

14.4 Bonuses are not transferable between accounts.

14.5 Any Member who is self-excluded will not be eligible to receive a Bonus. Players who self-exclude: (i) during the course of placing a Wager which is eligible for a Bonus; or (ii) after a Wager that is eligible for a Bonus has been placed but before any Bonus has been credited will not be eligible to receive their Bonus or any winnings from such Bonus. Any Bonus received prior to self-exclusion will expire upon self-exclusion.

14.6 We may withhold any Bonuses, prizes or credits awarded as part of an offer, promotion and/or competition at our discretion.

14.7 We may withhold, withdraw, amend or cancel any Bonus offer, promotion, competition, loyalty scheme or bonus scheme at our discretion at any time for any reason and without the need for prior notice.

14.8 Additional Bonuses: We may choose, in our sole discretion, to provide additional Bonuses or complimentary payments to Members, either applied directly to their account or through mechanisms such as offering the facility for Members to participate in offers. The application of any Bonus or “comp” to a Member’s account or the offering of any Bonus does not place any obligation on us to make any similar payment or Bonus to any other Member. Any Specific Promotional T&Cs applicable to such Bonuses will be stipulated to the relevant Members.

14.9 Closure of your account will render a Bonus void. Closure of your Member account during a competition or promotion in which you have participated will render your entry into such competition or promotion void and you will not be able to receive a prize.

14.10 We may withdraw or amend any competition or promotion at any time. Any such withdrawal or amendment will not impact any Member who has already opted into the promotion or competition, or otherwise accrued any prizes in relation to such competition or promotion, prior to the withdrawal or amendment coming into effect (unless any such withdrawal or amendment is necessary to prevent fraud or similar unlawful behaviour).

15. REGULATION OF RESULTS

15.1 Our Server Evidenced Results: If there is a discrepancy between either the numbers that you believe that you have entered or the graphic display of the Game you have played and those in our (or any of our third ‑party Game or Service Parties’) database, the numbers in the database are considered valid and no correspondence disputing such issues will be entered into by us.

15.2 Random Number Generator: You accept and agree that (a) random number generator software, hosted on our (or any of our third party Game or Service Parties’) servers will determine the outcome of the Games; (b) if the result shown on the software conflicts with the result shown on our (or any of our third party Game or Service Parties’) server, shall in all circumstances take precedence; and (c) our (or any of our third party Game or Service Parties’) records shall be the final authority in determining the circumstances of your use of the Platform and you shall have no right to dispute our decisions in regard to such matters, except by making a complaint.

15.3 Integrity of Random Number Generator: The output of our (or our third party Game or Service Parties’) random number generator is monitored and tested regularly by us and an independent accredited test facility to ensure it performs within expected bounds and in accordance with the relevant Regulators’ requirements.

15.4 Member Account Balances: Save as a result of manifest error or our negligence, the balance of your Member account will at all times be recorded on our server.

15.5 Event Results: Unless expressly stated otherwise in these Terms or any Additional Terms, for the purposes of Settling your Wager, the initial official result following the closure or end of an Event will be considered final and conclusive. Any subsequent change to results, whether due to disciplinary hearings or otherwise, will not be considered for the purposes of Settling your Wager. Automatic Game Playing and Wagering/Manipulation of Software: Automatic playing of Games or placing of Wagers by software (including, but not limited to, so called “bots”, AI software and any software used for opponent ‑filing and automatic Wagering) or any other manipulation of the Products or your/another Member’s account data is not permitted and may (without affecting our other rights and remedies) result in closure of your Member account/s and the cancellation of any outstanding winnings and deposits. Members that breach this Section will not be eligible for reinstatement under different screen names.

15.6 You agree not to break into, access, or attempt to break into or access or otherwise circumvent our security measures, or intentionally disconnect from Wagering activities while engaging with the Platform. If we have reason to suspect that you are in breach of the foregoing or that you are in an account or group of accounts that are operating systematically (for example, employing specific Wagering techniques or Wagering as a group), we have the right to use Full Protective Measures against your account.

15.7 Employee and Contractor Playing Restrictions: Neither: (a) our employees and contractors; nor (b) the employees and contractors of our Service Parties such as but not limited to our licensors, software suppliers, partners or developers, may register as Members, use the Products or make transactions on the Platform unless authorised to do so by one of our legally entitled officials for test purposes only. No funds or winnings in Member accounts used in this manner may be withdrawn.

15.8 Platform Activity Monitoring: Use of the Platform may be monitored to ensure that you are not using the Platform with a frequency or in a manner which might suggest you are using it for bookmaking or other illicit purposes. We may withhold any monies and/or suspend, and/or close your Member account if we consider that the Platform is being used by you for suspected criminal activity, bookmaking or other illicit purposes.

15.9 Suspicious Activity: If we determine or suspect that a transaction is suspicious, including but not limited to, collusion between Members, whether using our systems or other systems, and involves or may involve financial crime, fraud, cheating or irresponsible gaming behaviour, or breaches any of our policies, we may retain the amount of that transaction and any transaction made by you. We shall be under no obligation to provide you with any reasons for doing so. In addition we may disclose information of such activity, including but not limited to, any details relating to you, to the Regulators and any applicable law enforcement agencies. In addition, we may disclose information of such activity (including any details relating to you) to the Regulator and the proper authorities (such as regulatory authorities, governing bodies, financial institutions or law enforcement agencies to assist with any investigation).

15.10 Event Rigging: When you place a Wager, it must be done so with your own judgment and it is presumed by us that you have no inside information or inside knowledge about the Event, and that you do not know what the outcome of the Event will be. You also confirm that you have not relied on the advice of any of our employees in relation to your Wager. We reserve the right to void any Wagers where this Section is breached. If there is suspicion or any reasonable evidence based on your Wagering activity and/or Wagering patterns or otherwise of price or Event rigging, or manipulation in relation to an Event, or if the integrity of an Event has been called into question, we may decide to void all relevant Wagers or withhold Settlement until the outcome of any investigation or suspicion is confirmed. If no fraudulent conduct is found to have occurred, Settlement of such Wagers will be processed. Where there is reasonable evidence that a Member or a syndicate of Members has been involved in any Event rigging, we reserve the right to use Full Protective Measures against your account.

15.11 Fraud or Collusion: We may withhold winnings and void Wagers and related Bonuses or rewards if you are a Member or Network User and you manipulate the Games in a fraudulent manner; or there is Collusion (or suspected Collusion) between Members and/or Network Users; or we suspect you of taking unfair advantage of other Members or Network Users. Any such winnings, Wagers, Bonuses and rewards shall be null and void.

15.12 Event Beyond Control: If we are prevented from providing all or part of the Platform (including, but not limited to any service or Product) or fulfilling any of our obligations under these Terms due to an event beyond our reasonable control, including but not limited to, an act of God, an outbreak of hostilities, riot, civil disturbance, acts of terrorism, the act of any government or authority (including but not limited to any refusal or revocation of any license or consent), fire, explosion, flood, theft, malicious damage, strike, lock‑out, or industrial action of any kind or any other such cause beyond our reasonable control, the Platform (including, but not limited to any service or Product), may be suspended until such time as we are able to provide access to the Platform (or any affected part thereof) or fulfil any obligations under these Terms. You agree to waive any claim against us which may arise in such circumstances.

15.13 Results of Members of Group Websites: If you are a Network User, we may report any actual or suspected act that we identify on the Platform when you participate in a Linked Product of collusion, soft play, automated playing, manipulation of software, taking unfair advantage, fraud, money laundering, financial crime, or any other breach of our policies to the relevant Group Website. Such actual or suspected acts will be dealt with by the relevant Group Website in accordance with its policies. This may result in the withholding of winnings, voiding of Wagers and related Bonuses and retention of your related deposits by the relevant Group Website, together with the closure of your account with the relevant Group Website. For the avoidance of doubt, we will not be able to assist you in relation to any decisions made by the relevant Group Website.

16. DISCONNECTIONS AND MALFUNCTIONS

16.1 You are responsible for any and all telecommunication network and Internet access services fees and costs, and all other consents and permissions required in connection with your use of the Platform and the services. We will not be liable for any acts or omissions made by any third party providers that you have contracted with to gain access to the Platform.

16.2 If you are disconnected from the Internet or a mobile telephone network, then:

16.2.1 if you have not commenced the Game or commenced Wagering when you are disconnected, there will be no effect on your account;

16.2.2 if you had commenced the Game or commenced Wagering when you were disconnected and no input is required from you to complete the Game or Wager, the Game will be recorded on the Game servers and your Wagers will stand and the outcome will be reflected in your Member account status. The Wager may be accepted while you are disconnected, in which case you may in certain circumstances be able to view the round of Wagering completed prior to or during the period of disconnection. Alternatively, the Wager outcome may not have been determined while you were disconnected, in which case, upon your reconnection to the Internet and the Platform, you may in certain circumstances still be able to resume the Wagering, although the state of the Wager may not be at the same state prior to the disconnection. We do not guarantee that the Platform will recall your exact status prior to disconnecting; or

16.2.3 if you had commenced the Game or commenced Wagering when you were disconnected but your input is required to complete the Game or Wager, the Game or Wager will not be recorded on our servers and your Wagers may not stand. Upon your reconnection to the Internet and the Platform, you will be able to continue using the Platform and provide the input necessary to Wager, although the Game may not be at the same state prior to the disconnection.

16.3 Some single player Games are multi‑stage and may include bonus Games. If you are disconnected from the Internet or a mobile telephone network during a bonus Game or a multi‑stage Game, reconnecting and re‑selecting the Game (at the same value where applicable) should cause the Game to recommence from the point at which it terminated. Non multi‑stage Games will complete the outcome of the Game or bonus Game in your absence and will credit your Member account if you win. If a bonus Game cannot for any reason be recommenced in this way, this is considered a Malfunction unless otherwise stated in the specific Game rules. If there is a disconnection, the records stored on the Game server shall be the final authority in determining the terms of any Wagers you place and the circumstances in which they were made. Malfunction voids all Wagers and play.

16.4 In the case where the Location Service has, at the outset of playing a Game or making a Wager verified the Member’s physical presence in Ontario but, at a later point in the gaming session, fails to successfully verify the Member’s continued physical presence in such jurisdiction, the Platform and the Service Parties’ records will be determinative as to the continuation of the Game and acceptance of the Wager at the time of the subsequent failed location verification.

16.5 From time to time, technical malfunctions or human errors may occur which affect a Product, the Platform, and/or a Group Platform (“Malfunctions”). In some cases, Malfunctions may not be apparent or detectable by you and/or us until our verification checks have been completed. Malfunctions include but are not limited to:

16.5.1 malfunctions and/or errors (whether technical or human) relating to the underlying mechanics and maths of Games or in making a Wager, including where a Game operates other than in accordance with its published ‘return to player’ percentage (being the rate at which winnings are paid out as published in the relevant game rules) or published game rules;

16.5.2 errors in the published odds, statistics or other information about an Event (notwithstanding that some information may be slightly time delayed);

16.5.3 an obvious error or glitch in our accepting a Wager (such as where the Event being Wagered on has already concluded);

16.5.4 a Product not working in accordance with its published rules, an error in the hardware or software used by us resulting in an error in the functioning of a Product, or a Product producing unintended results as a result of any direct or indirect error, glitch or system failure in the functioning of the Product (such as Payout limits being exceeded in a given day); or

16.5.5 errors in the calculation and/or distribution of winnings (for example if winnings are attributed or distributed to you but which are not due to you).

16.6 Any Wagers which are subject to a Malfunction will be deemed null and void and under no circumstances will we be liable to you for any amounts (including any Winnings or potential winnings) arising out of or connected to such Malfunction.

16.7 Where a Malfunction interrupts a Game or Wager to the point that it cannot be restarted from exactly the same position without any detrimental impact to you or any other Member, we will, acting in good faith, use reasonable efforts to minimize any loss you have incurred. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no case will we be liable for indirect, incidental or consequential damages.

16.8 Where there is a Malfunction resulting in an error in the transmission of odds or prices, Wagers will be Settled at the correct price at the time of acceptance as determined by us. If we accept a Wager on an Event where offering Wagering on the Event itself was in error or otherwise not permitted, we may void the Wager, reverse any winnings credited to your account that are related to such voided Wager and return to you the amount you initially Wagered.

16.9 If there is a dispute as to whether a pricing Malfunction has occurred, the odds available in the general market in respect of such Event at the time of the pricing Malfunction will be taken into account to determine the correct odds.

16.10 Any winnings paid to you as a result of a Malfunction will be deemed to be held by you on behalf of us whilst we investigate such Malfunction, and will be repayable to us by you should such investigation prove that the winnings arose as a result of a Malfunction. Where an amount is repayable to us, we may deduct such amount from any monies you have in your account. You should inform us of any Malfunction as soon as possible and you should not seek to exploit a Malfunction to generate winnings.

16.11 To the extent that you have already used any winnings awarded to you as a result of a Malfunction to place subsequent Wagers, we reserve the right to cancel such Wagers and/or withhold any subsequent winnings which you may have won. If we have paid out on any such Wagers, such winnings will be deemed to be held by you on behalf of us and will be repayable immediately by you to us. Where an amount is repayable to us, we may deduct such amount from any monies you have in your account.

16.12 If based on reasonable evidence we believe that any winnings and/or rewards have been attributed to you erroneously, we may temporarily suspend the payment of such winnings and/or rewards to you whilst we investigate the Malfunction. If we find that such winnings and/or rewards are not erroneous winnings, we will process the payment/credit of the applicable winnings and/or rewards.

16.13 You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, (a) the Service Parties’ records will make the final determination with respect to any Wagering activity, including whether a Wager was placed and the details of the pricing, odds and game play; and (b) we will not be held liable for the failure of any equipment, technology or services, wherever physically located or provided, which prevents the placement or acceptance of Wagers or contact with us.

16.14 You acknowledge and agree that, to the extent there is a conflict between any Service Parties’ content as part of a Game such as but not limited to in the Game ‘How to Play Rules’ (and/or on the Platform) and these Terms and Conditions, these Terms and Conditions will prevail.
