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. Some payment methods may not be available in all countries.
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.
It is unlawful to deposit money which has been obtained illegally.
We accept payments made in EUR, SEK, NOK, USD, GBP, CHF, CZK, PLN, CAD 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.
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 If you have withdrawn these winnings before we become aware of this error, you must immediately inform us and will be required to pay this back.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.
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 We can reject a withdrawal request if we suspect that funds are being withdrawn for any fraudulent or money laundering reasons.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, 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;

You may impose limits on Your Account. These limits are:

This will be done every hour. This pop up will remind you of how much you lost and how much you won. You will then select to continue to enjoy our Games or log out.
This pop up might appear later than the automatic one hour schedule if your Game does not allow for temporary suspension. This pop up will appear immediately after your Game ends once you have come back to our lobby. We will not always be able to apply the Session Time Limit or Reality Check on the time promised. For example, if you play auto spin games, live games or games which are not hosted on our Site we will be unable to apply the Session Time Limit or Reality Check reminders until the game has finished or you return to our lobby.

a. Prohibited Use of Poker Account
I. No bots/ artificial intelligence
You must not use bot software or artificial intelligence, whether comercially obtained or privately developed, when playing Poker on the Site. ’Bots’ are software programs or other devices which interfere with the game software to play poker, which need little or no human action. Bots may use rules or artificial intelligence to make playing decisions. We will actively look for such software on the player’s machine subject to the player’s consent. Consent will also establish that the player will not interfere with any of the detection mechanisms. This clause applies regardless of whether the bot is actually used in conjunction with the Games or otherwise.
II. No Prohibited Software
Other types of software are also prohibited, these include but are not limited to software which:
- Gives You any sort of unfair advantage;
- Shares hole cards among players or assists collusion or cheating in any way;
- Utilises a database of hands or player profiles which is shared between players;
- Reduces or eliminates the need for a human to make decisions (for example, tools which automatically fold specific starting hands);
- Is designed to datamine (i.e. gather hands or player profiles from the game client beyond which the player has observed from their own play) for any purpose whether personal or commercial. This also applies to any data which has been obtained by datamining, whether the data was obtained by the player themselves or by anyone else. You are furthermore prohibited from sharing of any legitimately gathered data with other players;
- Provides real-time advice on the action to take during play (including ICM analysis tools);

Players must not share their account, under any circumstances, with any other person as this would tantamount to ‘Multiple Account Abuse’.

Accordingly, a player may not use any account other than their own keep their credentials (alias, password, and any other information used to access the player’s account) secret and not reveal them to any other person.

VI. No Angleshooting
Any attempt to gain an unfair advantage over other players, whether specifically prohibited by the rules or not, is strictly prohibited. Any activity that is designed to give a player an unfair advantage, but which may be allowed under a strict interpretation of the rules, due to a loophole or due to unintended software characteristics is still prohibited.
