7.3 We will not be liable for any loss or damage which you may incur as a result of engaging in any Unsuitable Conduct, and any action we take in respect of the same will be at our sole discretion.

8. Verification and Money Laundering Checks

8.1 As part of the Account registration process, we will perform checks to verify your age and identity. We do this for three main reasons:

8.1.1 to confirm your identity;

8.1.2 to check you are old enough to gamble; and

8.1.3 to verify whether you have self-excluded from gambling.

8.2 In order to participate in paid-for aspects of the Service, you will be required to register a payment method and deposit funds to your Account. By agreeing to these Terms:

8.2.1 you warrant that you are the rightful owner of any payment method registered and of any money which you deposit in your Account at any time; and

8.2.2 you authorise us to undertake any such identification, credit and other verification checks from time to time as we may require or as may be required by third parties.

8.3 When you register a payment method you should be aware that we are required to undertake appropriate checks to verify your age and identity within 72 hours of you making your first deposit with us. During this time you will be able to deposit funds into your Account and participate in games, but you will not be able to request a withdrawal or refund from your Account.

8.4 Where possible, we will attempt to verify your age and identity using the details you have provided against publicly available information, however where this is not possible you may be required to provide us with appropriate documentation to allow us to verify your age and identity

8.5 If we are unable to verify you successfully within 72 hours of you first depositing money into your Account, we are required to suspend your Account and withhold any funds until such time as we have been able to successfully verify your age and identity.

8.6 We may supply your information to authorised third party reference agencies to confirm your identity and payment details. You agree that we may process such information in connection with your Account.

8.7 It is an offence for any person who is under the age of 18 to participate in any paid-for aspects of Service. If we are unable to confirm that you are over 18 years of age then we may suspend your Account until such time as we are able to confirm your age. If you are subsequently, or at any time during the lifetime of the Account, proven to have been under 18 years of age when you participated in paid-for aspects of Service, then:

8.7.1 your Account will be terminated or suspended (at our absolute discretion);

8.7.2 all transactions made whilst you were underage will be made void, and all related funds deposited by you will be returned by the payment method used for the deposit of such funds, wherever practicable; and

8.7.3 any winnings which you have accrued will be forfeited by you (and may be deducted from any deposited returned under paragraph 8.7.2 above).

9. Deposits and Withdrawals

9.1 For players in Great Britain, we are required by our licence to inform players about what happens to monies which we hold on account for them, the extent to which such monies are protected in the event of insolvency, and the categorisation of such protection according to the British Gambling Commission’s customer funds rating system. Monies deposited by you to your Account will be held in a bank account which will be kept separate from our company funds. The monies in your Account are not protected in the event of insolvency. This meets the British Gambling Commission’s and the Malta Gaming Authority’s basic requirements for the segregation of customer funds.

9.2 As a player you can make deposits to your Account using a credit card, a wire transfer from your bank account, a paysafecard, Zimpler, or a transfer from your e-wallet account. Minimum deposits may apply and, where applicable, the relevant amount(s) will be shown on the Site at the time of deposit.

9.3 All deposits and withdrawals can be initiated from your Account ‘overview’ page on the Site.

9.4 You may request a withdrawal of funds from your Account at any time, provided that:

9.4.1 all payments made into your Account have been confirmed as cleared and there is no reason to suspect that we will be subject to any monies being charged-back, reversed or otherwise cancelled;

9.4.2 all verification checks referred to in paragraph 8 above have been completed to our satisfaction; and

9.4.3 there are no other conditions which may attach to or limit your ability to withdraw funds (e.g. any applicable promotion terms).

9.5 Your Account will be opened, held and settled in the currency agreed between us and you. All amounts displayed on the Site relating to wagers and winnings will be quoted with the symbol of the relevant currency. We calculate and settle all matters involving exchange rates in accordance with recognised financial institutions at currently applicable exchange rates. Slight differences may occur between the agreed amounts and the recorded amounts due to variances between exchange rates.

9.6 In regards to internal transfers within your Account, we reserve the right to manually correct, without further notice to you, any transaction(s) that may be regarded as speculation in currency fluctuations.

9.7 You may only make deposits into your own Account, and only using a credit card issued or from a bank account or e-wallet account held in you own name. If a deposit is made into your Account from a bank account or card that does not belong to you, we reserve the right to confiscate all associated winnings.

9.8 Winnings will be credited to your Account. Withdrawals from your Account must be made to the payment account from which the deposits were made. Withdrawals can only be made to a credit card, bank account or e-wallet account held in your own name.

9.9 To avoid unnecessary delays in carrying out withdrawal requests, we are dependent on you providing us with complete and correct information and we will not be liable for any delays caused by your failure to provide us with complete and correct information.

9.10 We reserve the right to apply minimum withdrawal amounts for different payout methods as notified to you from time to time in the ‘Payout Information’ section on the Site. If you request a payout of an amount smaller than the minimum withdrawal amount, we reserve the right to charge a discretionary fee for the same depending on the payout method.

9.11 We reserve the right to limit the number of free payouts per customer within a specific time period determined by us. We also reserve the right to charge an increased fee for payouts to bank accounts held with banks located outside the European Union countries.

9.12 We do not allow bets on credit. However, if a result is registered incorrectly and a customer’s Account is credited erroneously, we reserve the right to debit the Account accordingly. In the event the Account holds a negative balance after the corrected result, you will be required to repay the amount erroneously received.

9.13 In case winnings derive from a no deposit bonus/offer a minimum deposit of £30 is required before withdrawal processed.

9.14 Bethard reserves the right to apply processing fees for deposits and withdrawals for different payout methods as may be notified from time to time in the ‘Deposit and Withdrawal’ section in your Account.

9.15 In addition to any other rights we may have under these Terms, if we incur any charge-backs, reversals or other charges in respect of your Account, we reserve the right to charge you for the relevant amounts incurred. Monies deposited with us in your Account shall not attract interest.

9.16 Any claim regarding a transaction in conjunction with an Account must be made within 6 months of the date the relevant transaction, payment and/or settlement took place, or should have taken place. If a claim is not made within this timeframe, we reserve the right not to consider the claim.

9.17 We may, at any time, set off any positive balance on your Account against any amounts owed by you to us.

9.18 You are responsible for reporting your winnings and losses to the tax and/or other authorities in your jurisdiction (if applicable).

9.19 Deposits made with Paysafecard will not qualify for deposit offers.

10. Sportsbook General Rules

10.1 Each player determines their own stakes, with the exception of the restriction imposed by limits of winnings and possible stake limits. A precondition for the effective placement of a bet is that before the closing deadline for the acceptance of bets there must be sufficient balance in your Account to cover the stake. If your Account balance is insufficient and the shortfall is not remitted in due time meaning that the stake for your bet is only partly covered by your Account balance, the bet is deemed to be placed with a stake corresponding to the remaining balance on the Account.

10.2 A bet is accepted once we have confirmed it. A bet is confirmed when it appears in your Account. In some cases delays may occur between the time the bet is placed by you and the time it is accepted by us. In the event of a dispute over the time when a bet was placed, the time when the bet was accepted by us shall govern.

10.3 Bets placed and accepted in good time may not be revoked or changed. It is therefore your sole responsibility to ensure that all of the details of your bets are correct.

10.4 If a bet is declared invalid or void (e.g. where the betting event is cancelled), the relevant bet will be evaluated as ‘won’ with odds of 1.00. For individual (i.e. single) bets, this means that you will get the amount equal to your stake back. In a multi bet, this means that the total odds will be adjusted accordingly and the multi bet can still be won if all other bets it contains are also won.

10.5 If a bet is placed after the beginning of the betting event, the bet is invalid (this does not include live betting). The bet will be evaluated as ‘won’ using the odds 1.00. For live betting, bets which are received by us after the result of the respective bet has been determined are invalid and will be evaluated as ‘won’ using odds of 1.00.

10.6 The deadline for placing bets will in each case be determined by us in our discretion.

10.7 Bethard reserves the right to decline acceptance of any bet that is deemed to breach any term or rule forming part of our Terms & Conditions.

10.8 We assume no responsibility for typing, transmission and/or evaluation errors. In particular, we reserve the right to correct obvious errors – even after the event – with the input of betting odds and/or the evaluation of betting results (e.g. odds-related, team-related, event-related errors) or declare affected bets void. We accept no liability for the correctness, completeness or accuracy of the information services provided, for example live scores and result messages sent via e-mail. The stake is exclusively the amount confirmed and recorded by us. If an erroneous event/market is cancelled all bets are void and will be evaluated as ‘won’ with odds of 1.00.

10.9 In the case of bets with fixed odds, the gross winnings are calculated by multiplying the stake by the fixed odds. In the case of live bets, you will be able to accept any changes in odds during the bet placement process. Changes in odds are understood to be those which change between the pick being added to the bet slip and the bet being accepted by us. The actual odds are then displayed in the bet confirmation notification. If you do not receive a bet confirmation notification, the bet is still valid if it is displayed in the ‘My Betting History’ section of your Account, under ‘Sports’.

10.10 If you make several equal bets (also the combination of single and multi bets) whose total winnings exceed the winning limit, we are entitled to reduce the stake to the necessary extent in order to comply with the winning limits.

10.11 Unless otherwise stated – whether in the exceptions listed below, in the betting offer or in the special rules of each sport – the principle ‘all bets stand’ applies to all bets. Only in certain exceptional cases will the bet be declared void, including in the following cases:

10.11.1 the event/tournament is cancelled or declared void;

10.11.2 the event/tournament is interrupted and is restarted more than 36 hours after the original start date; and/or

10.11.3 in relation to head-to-head (H2H) bets: if one or more participants withdraw before they have started the event/tournament.

10.12 All bets that are determined (i.e. the outcome is already decided) are valid and will be settled accordingly regardless of subsequent abandonment of the event/tournament at any time.

10.13 We recognise only those results which have been achieved on the playing field or platform. Results amounting from disciplinary measures from a sports court or court of law are not considered. In case of violation of sports laws, we reserve the right to freeze the winnings and withhold payment.

10.14 Live bets are offered exclusively before and during an event on a dedicated live bets platform. The odds are continuously updated to reflect the current status of the game.

10.15 In order to avoid a bet not being accepted due to changes in odds, our system automatically updates the odds before slip confirmation and you should check the latest odds in the betting slip before the confirmation.

10.16 For live bets the results that are known immediately after the conclusion of a betting market will be the ones used to evaluate the winning outcome(s). Subsequent modifications (e.g. results decided by a jury after the game) do not influence settlement of the live bet on offer.

10.17 Live bets are settled on our own statistics which are based on the actual run of play. Unless otherwise stated, in live betting all bets on ‘non-runners’ will be void.

10.18 Full Sportsbook Terms and Conditions

11. Responsible Gambling

11.1 We are committed to providing the support you need to gamble responsibly. We offer you a range of options to help you to manage your play. These include:

11.1.1 deposit/entry limits;

11.1.2 time outs; and

11.1.3 self-exclusion.

11.2 Although we will use our reasonable endeavours to enforce our responsible gambling policy, we do not accept any responsibility or liability if you nevertheless continue gambling and/or seek to use the Service with the intention of deliberately avoiding the relevant measures in place.

Deposit Limit

11.3 You can set a deposit limit on your Account in any one day, 7 day or one month period. This limit cannot be increased without giving us twenty four hours’ notice of your wish to increase your limit. For details of how to set up a deposit limit please contact us at [support@bethard.com], or set up the limit through the Site at https://www.bethard.com/account/responsible-gaming. Any confirmed reductions to your deposit limit will have immediate effect.

Time Out

11.4 If you wish to take a break from playing, you can apply a ‘Time Out’ to your Account for one day, one week, one month, or such other period up to six weeks. When you set a Time Out we will close your Account for the specified period. To set a Time Out on your Account, please contact us at [support@bethard.com], or set up the Time Out through the Site at https://www.bethard.com/account/responsible-gaming. At the end of your Time Out period, your Account will automatically be reopened and you will be able to login to your Account.

Self-exclusion

11.5 We provide a self-exclusion facility which allows you to close your Account for a specified period of time (minimum six months). At your request, we will prevent you from using your Account for a specific period, as determined by you. By opting to self-exclude, we will close your Account, remove you from all active marketing communications and return any positive balance of funds to you. During the period of self-exclusion it will not be possible to reopen your Account for any reason. To request self-exclusion, please contact us at [support@bethard.com].

11.6 Should you opt to self-exclude, we strongly recommend that you seek exclusion from all other sites where you also play. GAMSTOP, the UK’s national online self-exclusion scheme, allows you to put controls in place to help restrict your online gambling activities. In order to exclude yourself from signing up or using gambling websites run by companies licensed in Great Britain (GB), we recommend that you register with GAMSTOP. Please visit http://www.gamstop.co.uk for more information.

We also recommend that, during any period of self-exclusion, you seek additional support and advice from a support organisation such as http://www.gamcare.org.uk.

11.7 Should you opt for self-exclusion, you will not be able to open an account with Bethard. We will always screen against the relevant national self-exclusion schemes and do our utmost to ensure that self-excluded players are not able to register or play on our Site. However, in the unlikely event that a player who has registered with GAMSTOP has succeeded in opening an account with Bethard using personal details/information different from those used to register with GAMSTOP, Bethard reserves the right to close any and/or all of the accounts pursuant to clause 6.5 and clause 16.2 of these present Terms & Conditions.

12. Indemnity

We reserve the right, at our own expense, to assume exclusive defence and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you and, in such case, you agree to cooperate with us in the defence of such matter.
