2. LEGALITY OF USE OF THE SERVICES
You may only use the Services if You are 18 years of age or over. We reserve the right to ask for proof of age from You and Your Account may be suspended until satisfactory proof of age is provided You understand and accept that We are unable to provide You with any legal advice or assurances and that it is Your sole responsibility to ensure that at all times You comply with the laws that govern You and that You have the complete legal right to use the Services.

Your gaming account shall be linked to your user registration, and in which are reflected the economic transactions associated with the gaming activities and services offered by the Company.
The currency of the gaming account shall be in Euros (legal currency in the European Union).
There are no set-up charges for opening Your Account. We are not a bank and funds are not insured by any government agency. All payments to and from Your Account must be paid in Euros, and shall not bear interest.

For more information, please see our FAQ section or the DGOJ website.
To play Real Money Games or place a bet, You will be required to pay 'real money' funds into Your Account by any of the methods specified by Us. Such funds will be deposited into Your Account upon actual receipt of funds by Us and/or Our agents. Minimum and maximum limits may be applied to the payments into Your Account, depending upon Your history with Us, the method of deposit, and other factors as determined solely by the Company. For further details of current deposit and cash out options and fees please see Cashier.
You can request withdrawals from Your Account at any time provided all payments/charges made have been received. We will pay any requested withdrawal partly or in total via the same method of payment and in the same currency with which deposits were made. When using credit/debit card or an e-wallet to make a deposit into your account, the Company may elect not to accept any withdrawal request within fourteen (14) days after the deposit.
To use certain Services, You may first need to download and install software as provided on the relevant Platform.
When first creating your account, and in accordance with the applicable regulations, You may deposit in accordance with the following maximum deposit limits:
- Daily limit: EUR 600 (00:00 to 24:00)
- Weekly limit: EUR 1,500 (from 00:00 on the Monday to 24:00 on the Sunday)
- Monthly limit: EUR 3,000 (from 00:00 on the first day of the month until 24:00 on the last day of the month)
These limits are subject to change from time to time in accordance with Spanish law.
The Company reserves the right to reduce those limits in an individualised manner for a certain player whenever it identifies behaviour that indicates compulsive gambling or the systematic search for risk-free betting based on errors in determining fees, as well as other behaviour that might be collusive or deemed fraudulent.
You may reduce the pre-set deposit limits to a sum below the sums indicated above, which will be applied immediately in accordance with our Responsible Gaming Policy.
If you wish to increase or remove Your limits, You must meet the following requirements:
- You must successfully complete and pass the tests for preventing addictive gaming behaviour and for safe gaming, established for this purpose by the authority responsible for gaming regulation (self-evaluation test).
- You must not have fallen into risk-associated behaviour over the course of the last three months based on the historical analysis conducted, in response to the request, by the Company on the player's progression, which will at the least relate to Your profile, Your form of participating in games and your conduct not indicating gambling addiction behaviour.
The new limits shall take effect within a maximum term of three days, counted from compliance with the above requirements.
Please note we will not be able to process an increase of the limits, if three months have not elapsed since the last modification of deposit limits.
For further information, please see our Responsible Gaming Policy. If you would like guidance aimed at persons (affected or family members) with problems caused by Gaming, please call 900 533 025, a free-phone helpline open around the clock.
Once an entry into the General Register of Gambling Access Interdictions (Registro General de Interdicciones de Acceso al Juego, 'RGIAJ') of a certain person with an active user account becomes apparent to the Company, We will proceed to suspend their gaming account and inform them of the consequences associated with said suspension, which are as follows:
- While the suspension persists, You will be unable to use deposits or to participate in our services.
- During the suspension of the gaming account, the user entered in the RGIAJ may request the balance of his or her gaming account to be transferred, including the prizes gained prior to the suspension and prizes won during the suspension of the gaming account resulting from stake participations performed prior to said suspension, without any additional charge. Please contact our Customer Services in order to request said transfer.
Once a person's entry in the RGIAJ is cancelled, we are able to life the gaming-account suspension and to allow participation in stakes, on request.
We will provide You with the opportunity to self exclude, which will entail your gaming account being temporarily suspended, without the possibility to make deposits or to participate. Self-exclusion will take effective within a maximum period of 48 hours once the request has been completed. For further information, visit our Responsible Gaming web page.
4. TRUE IDENTITY AND ONE ACCOUNT
Your user Account is personal, non-transferable, for single use and for recreational purposes, and you explicitly state that You will not transfer it to any third party and will not use automated systems, robots, bots nor any other type of similar software tool.
The name on Your Account must match Your true and legal name and identity, and the name on Your Account registration must match the name on the credit card or other payment accounts used to deposit or receive monies into Your Account.
To verify Your identity, the Company may request satisfactory proof of identity (including but not limited to copies of a valid passport/identity card and/or any payment cards used) and satisfactory proof of address (including but not limited to a recent utility bill or bank statement) at any time. Failure to supply such documentation may result in suspension of the Account.
Once the data-verification procedure has been finalised, the gaming account will be activated.
However, if a period of one month elapses from the request being registered without the data having been verified, either in the Identity Verification Service for participants of the DGOJ, or in any other identity verification service, it will be cancelled. Users whose identity has not been validated in the Identity Verification Service of DGOJ participants, nor in any other identity verification service, may not play, nor make deposits or withdrawals.
Users correctly identified by means of the identity verification system and who are awaiting documentary verification may make deposits, up to a joint limit of EUR 150 and participate in games, although they are not permitted to withdraw prizes, whatever the sum or nature. Only users correctly identified through documentary verification may therefore make deposits, participate in games and make withdrawals.
The following documents will be deemed valid for the purposes of documentary verification:
- For natural persons of Spanish nationality, the National Identity Document.
- For natural persons of foreign nationality, the Residence Card, Foreigner Identity Card, Passport or, in the case of citizens of the European Union or the European Economic Area, the official personal identity card issued by the authorities of the country of origin. Another valid means of identifying foreigners will be the identify document issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation for the staff of diplomatic and consular missions of third countries in Spain.
- As an exception, the Company may accept other personal identity documents issued by a government authority, provided that bear suitable guarantees of authenticity and include a photograph of the holder.
You may not hold more than one (1) Account in connection with Your use of the Platforms. If You have more than one (1) Account or Accounts in different names You must contact Us immediately to have Your Accounts managed so that You only have one (1) Account. Moreover, you may only access the Platforms and user the services through your own account, and may never do so though the account of another person. If any user attempts to open more than one account, either in their own name or in the name of a third party, or if they attempt to use the services through the account of another person, We may close their account immediately, withhold the winnings and bonuses of said accounts, and prevent our services being used in the future. We reserve the right to close Your Account(s) if You open multiple Accounts. Should We have reasonable grounds to believe that multiple Accounts have been opened with the intention to defraud the company, We reserve the right to cancel any transaction related to said fraud attempt.
If You have lost Your Account name / User ID or password, please contact Us for a replacement.

7. COPYRIGHT AND TRADEMARKS
The brands partypoker, bwin, partycasino and any other brands used by the Group are trademarks, service marks and/or trade names of the Group or one of its subsidiaries or associated companies or its licensors. Further, any other material used by the Group, including but not limited to the software, images, pictures, graphics, photographs, animations, videos, music, audio, text (and any intellectual property rights in and to any of the same) is owned by the Group or one of its subsidiaries or associated group companies and/or licensors and is protected by copyright and/or other intellectual property rights. You obtain no rights in such copyright material or trade or service marks and must not use them without the Group's written permission.
8. ELECTRONIC SERVICES PROVIDER
In order to use the Services, You will be required to make cash deposits with us, and if necessary funds will be transferred to you. We may use third-party electronic payment processors and/or financial institutions ('ESPs') to process such financial transactions. You irrevocably authorise Us, as necessary, to instruct such ESPs to handle Account deposits and withdrawals from Your Account, and You irrevocably agree that We may give such instructions on Your behalf in accordance with Your requests as submitted using the relevant feature on Our Platforms. You agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of use of each applicable ESP. In the event of conflict between these provisions and the ESP's terms and conditions these Agreements shall prevail.
9. BONUSES (FREE OF COST)
We may from time to time offer You complimentary or bonus amounts to be credited by Us into Your Account ('Bonus(es)'). Such Bonuses may only be used in relation to such Services as may be specified when the Bonus is offered to You. Acceptance of any Bonus shall be in accordance with additional terms and conditions We may make available to You in respect of each such Bonus offering and, if none, then in accordance with the Standard Promotional Terms and Conditions and bonus release restrictions contained in the relevant offer. Offers may be used only ONCE unless otherwise specified. You are not entitled to withdraw any Bonus amounts and You may not remove any cash obtained via a Bonus from Your Account without first complying with the applicable terms including, without limitation, those in respect of any qualifiers or restrictions. The Company may cancel any promotion, Bonus or special offer at any time, although in always respecting the rights acquired by players. The Bonuses may be used in selected games only.
A user account consists of 'Available Balance' and 'Restricted Balance'. The Restricted Balance is the total of the bonus funds that have not yet met the applicable betting requirements and any deposit or winning associated with said bonus funds, depending on the type of Bonus. The Available Balance consists of those funds that You have deposited and any winning derived from said funds, as well as any bonus fund that has met the applicable betting requirements. The Available Balance can be: (i) used in any game to which it applies; or (ii) withdrawn once the prior identification verification process has been completed.
Bear in mind that it is possible that your deposit does not reach Your user account immediately, and that a number of days might elapse before said deposit can be processed by Your payment processor and appear in your user account. Until that time, said deposit cannot be deemed Available Balance. Bonuses subject to the betting requirements will require You to place bets for a determined value so as to be able to withdraw bonus funds and any winning associated with those funds.
In the event that the Company has sufficient evidence to believe that a user of the services is using a Bonus or promotion improperly or intending to use one improperly, or might profit through the improper use or lack of good faith from a gaming policy adopted by the Company, the latter may – at its discretion – refuse, withhold or withdraw any Bonus or promotion from said user, or cancel any condition of use concerning him or her, whether temporarily or permanently, and to terminate the user's access to the services and/or block the account of said user, or dissolve the gaming contract.
You may request the cancellation of a Bonus from your account, although be aware that this cancellation might include any winning obtained from said Bonus.
10. CASH OUTS
As mentioned above, Your account balance is the amount of real money held in Your user Account (if any), plus any winnings derived from funds You have deposited, less any rakes or entry or other fees, if applicable, and less any amounts previously withdrawn by You or amounts forfeited or reclaimed by Us due to any suspected fraud act or due to deposits or other transactions rejected or cancelled by Your bank or any other bank (whether as a result of insufficient funds, charge-backs or otherwise), any Inactive Account Fees (see Section 11 below) or any sums which are otherwise deductible or forfeited under these general provisions.
Acceptance of a cash out request from the Available Balance is subject to You having made a real-money deposit in Your Account, any deposit method restrictions, bonus restrictions and/or Security Reviews (see Section 16 below) and any other terms of these general provisions. For further details of current deposit and cash out options, and the fees that there are, please see the Cashier.
Prior to the cash out from the Available Balance, Your identity must be duly verified as set out in Section 4 of this contract. To do so, You must provide information and accurate and precise data such as Your first and last names; identity document and number of said document, such as: tax identification number (NIF), national identity number (DNI), foreigner identification number (NIE); nationality, date of birth, address, e-mail, as well as any documentation applicable and relevant for confirming said information provided by the player.
The Company may report Your transactions, and withhold any sum of Your winnings in order to comply with applicable legislation. You will be responsible for paying any tax relating to the winnings gained. The Account balance cannot be transferred or replaced, or redeemed for another prize. The cash out of any balance You that you request shall be carried out by the same payment method that You used for performing a deposit or by another payment method agreed by both parties, provided that this allows traceability, is not anonymous and it is in Your name.
Whenever we operate a Closed Loop System in order to process cash out requests so as to safeguard our customers and others from card theft and fraud, Your card might occasionally be transferred to other payment methods if the funds are returned to the payments methods used for depositing, as specified in the example below. We may process the cash outs and cash these to the payment methods that You used in order to perform said deposits, up until the total amount deposited, prior to other cash out options being enabled.
When You request a cash out, if this is possible, this will be automatically carried out by means of the payment methods used beforehand, up until the total amount of said deposits. For instance:
- On Monday you deposit €50 using Skrill;
- On Tuesday you deposit €50 using PayPal;
- On Wednesday you deposit €50 using Skrill;
- On Thursday you deposit €50 using a Visa debit card;
- On Friday you deposit €50 Neteller.
From Monday to Friday the Balance of Deposits made by the player will be €250:
- 100 with Skrill;
- 50 with PayPal;
- 50 with Visa debit card;
- 50 with Neteller.
On Saturday You request a cash out of €450.
The first €250 of your cash out will be paid as follows:
- €100 will be paid to the Skrill account(s);
- €50 will be paid to the PayPal account;
- €50 will be paid to the Visa debit card account;
- €50 will be paid to the Neteller account;
The cash out amount outstanding or the sum of €200 (i.e. the amount exceeding your Deposits Balance) will be paid according to the payment method(s) you have selected.
All cash outs are subject to Our cash withdrawal procedures as follows: All cash out requests are assessed by our in-house review team, and must be approved by them in order for any amount to be paid out. This in-house review process might last up to 24 hours, and may be subject to a security review as described in Section 16 of these general provisions. From then onwards, there might be an additional waiting time until the money is received in the corresponding bank account, depending on the payment method used and the processing time of the corresponding bank or third parties involved in processing payments.
Please bear in mind that the status of your cash out request might appear in your user Account as 'in process' or 'being processed' even when the internal review process has been concluded satisfactorily. Said status may be updated and presented in your user Account as 'processed' or 'completed' once the corresponding bank has satisfactorily delivered the funds requested for your cash out into the corresponding bank account.
Cash outs requested with a difference of under 8 (eight) hours may be consolidated and treated as a single request. The above will be taken into consideration prior to processing the payment according to the limit of the option selected.
The Company may process cash outs with the same payment method(s) used for performing the deposit up until the total amount paid in (provided this/these allow traceability and are not anonymous, while other options are not enabled). The payment method(s) will be chosen at Our sole discretion and might include, although by no means exhaustively, credit or debit cards.
All payments made by bank transfer in EUR within the SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) region will be processed in accordance with the SEPA criteria. This means that both the remitter and the receiver will be charged regular domestic fees for the transaction by their respective banks, even if the transfer takes place between two different countries within the SEPA region.
Every user of the Services bears full responsibility to pay any sum owed to the Company. You accept that You shall not carry out nor attempt to carry out any cancellation of charges, nor decline nor cancel any payment carried out, and shall refund to the Company any cancellation charge or payment that you have denied or cancelled, or for any loss that the Company might suffer as a consequence of this. At its discretion, the Company may cease to offer Services or withhold payments to users who use certain credit cards to carry out their payments, according to applicable regulations.
The Company may user electronic payment processors of third parties and/or financial institutions for processing payment made by You or for You relating to using the Services. Provided there are not conflicts with the terms of this contract, You accept to be governed by the terms and conditions of such third parties, electronic payment processors or financial institutions.
If the existence of any fraudulent payment is suspected or if this occurs, including the use of stolen credit cards or any other fraudulent activity (including cancellation of the debit or any other type of payment denied), we will proceed to blocking the user Account, to reverse any payment and to receiver any amount that said user might have won the game. The Company will notify the relevant authority or body (including credit reference agencies) of any fraudulent payment or other illegal activity.
Nevertheless, the Company can under no circumstance be held liable for any unauthorised use of credit or debit cards that have been used that way or not reported or stolen.
All deposits assigned to Your Account must be performed through a single payment source, such as a credit or debit card, on which You are named as the account holder.
11. INACTIVE ACCOUNT FEES AND ABANDONMENT OF ACCOUNTS
If You do not access Your Account using Your Account name / User ID and password and either (i) place a bet via the Services, or (ii) enter a tournament with a cash entry fee via the Gaming Services, or (iii) play a raked hand via the Gaming Services, or (iv) not make a deposit as applicable, for any consecutive period of 24 months, then after this period (the 'Grace Period') Your Account (and any related account with any ESP) will be deemed 'Inactive', and we may suspend Your account.
Once Your Account has been deemed Inactive, We will be entitled to charge You an administrative fee (the 'Inactive Account Fee'). We may deduct an amount up to the Inactive Account Fee amount from Your Account Balance on the day following the end of the Grace Period and then every thirty (30) days thereafter in accordance with the provisions in relation to the fees applicable for each inactive account, without the balance being negative. In any event, we will notify You with sufficient notice of the alternatives in order to avoid that charge. We will also remove any unused Freeroll entry tournament monies from Your Account, including but not limited to occasions where the tournament for which the Freeroll entry applies is no longer valid.
Once a period of four (4) years – forty-eight (48) months – has passed since Your Account being suspended, in order to safeguard the deposit, we will withhold any amount that there might be in Your Account, and close this.

28. SPORTSBOOK SERVICES
Every single wager constitutes a separate and individual contract concluded within the scope of the gaming contract, although distinct from this. Consequently, the following terms will apply only to Your use of the Sportsbook Services. Please note that in the event of any conflict between this Section 28 and the remaining Sections of these Terms and Conditions, Section 28 shall prevail to the extent that it applies to Your use of the Sportsbook Services.
28.2 Rules and Procedures of the Sportsbook Services
You must use the Sportsbook Services in accordance with the generally accepted games rules set out in Our Sportsbook Services Rules and any other page that specifically relates to and governs any particular event, game or tournament ('Rules'). We advise You to read all of these Rules carefully.
28.3 Betting Terms
We reserve the right to use symbols (such as 1,X,2) and abbreviations for the indication of betting outcomes. We will at any time maintain a help section on the Sportsbook Services providing information about the betting types and terms used. We advise You to familiarise Yourself with the exact details of any bet before placing it. Any additional information detailed at the top or bottom of events and odds displays forms part of the betting rules for the particular event and in the event of any disparity, shall take precedence over these terms. We advise You to read all of this information carefully.
28.3.1 Limits on Stakes
The Company may limit the maximum amount wagered for each single or multiple bet, whether or not in an overall manner for a certain type of stakes, or individually for a player or group of players.
28.3.2 Limits on Winnings
The maximum aggregate amount that You may win via the Sportsbook Services within any seven (7) day period is EUR 250,000. This maximum shall apply independently of the number of bets placed or pending or the amount wagered or pending and acceptance of Your bet or wager by Us does not constitute an agreement to pay out if Your net win exceeds Our limit on winnings (specified above). It is Your responsibility to be aware that You will not receive any pay-out if Your net win exceeds this limit.
The maximum amount that You may win via the Sportsbook Services on any single bet is EUR 10,000.
28.3.3 Calculation of winnings
In the case of a fixed odds bet, winnings are calculated by multiplying the stake by the fixed odds. In the case of live bets, You 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 Our acceptance of the bet. In the event that You make more than one bet (including the combination of single and multiple bets) and Your total winnings exceed the limits on winnings set out in 28.3.2 above, We shall be entitled to reduce the state to the extent necessary to comply with the limits on winnings.
28.3.4 Accuracy of Bets and Results
In order to ensure the highest accuracy of all bets and results, we calculate Your Account funds using four decimal points. For technical reasons, Your Account balance can only be displayed to two decimal points, which may from time-to-time lead to discrepancies when a value with four decimal points is rounded off to a value with two decimal points.
28.4 Acceptance and Validation of Terms
Bets must be made via the Sportsbook Services.
A bet is deemed to be valid following confirmation of acceptance from Our remote servers. This acceptance is demonstrated by the bet's transaction code that will appear on screen. When a bet is placed and accepted, the corresponding amount is charged against Your Account. Once accepted, bets cannot be cancelled or amended in any way.
When placing the bet, You confirm that You do not have any previous knowledge of the result of the respective event underlying the bet ('Event') If, during the period of acceptance of bets, information becomes known through which the outcome of an Event can be determined, We may vary the deadline for acceptance of bets or to void any bets placed.
The Company may void any bet, including but not limited to any bet which may be inadvertently accepted, when Your Account does not have sufficient funds to cover the amount of the bet placed prior to the Event taking place. Subject to the foregoing, if Your Account balance partly covers a stake for a bet, We reserve the right to accept Your bet with a stake equal to the sum of Your Account balance. We also reserve the right to take any measures necessary to protect You from further losses should you lose EUR 5,000 (or its equivalent) or more in any four (4) week period.
All bets must be made and accepted before the start of the relevant Event. Any bet placed or received after the start of the Event will be void, event that this is open in the case of a pre-match book error, unless the betting offer is clearly intended to be available after the start of the Event (such as live betting or outright winners), and said betting offer is explicitly referred to as open for bets after the event has commenced.
If, in the case of ‘live’ betting, delayed television coverage or data transmission results in a bet being placed at the incorrect price immediately after the selected participant or team has gained a significant advantage, We shall subsequently cancel all of the bets made and reimburse the funds bet to all of the players.
If an Event is cancelled and deemed void, the respective odds shall be 1 without decimal points (1). In the event of an individual bet, the amount of the bet is refunded. In the case of multiple bets in which Events cancelled appear together with other valid events with a winning forecast, the multiple bet is considered won but the accumulated odds are adjusted accordingly.
Multiple bets are not accepted where the outcome of one part of the bet contributes to the outcome of another.
The Company may refuse in whole or in part any bet and all ambiguous bets shall be void.
The Company may suspend, modify, remove and/or add any Sports Service at Our absolute discretion with immediate effect, and no liability whatsoever shall be derived from any such action.
28.5 Professional players
The Company may limit or block any User’s bet or amount they can bet if it detects in that their game operations or methods have a professional profile. This includes – but is not limited to – cases in which participants place bets in events with little or no tradition in Spain, when they are located in a place that is remote with respect to Spain, when bets are placed on sports that have no connection with each other, as well as when the number of bets placed daily is considerably higher than the average of all players or the bets are for an amount that is higher than the average of other players, if the use of ‘bots’ or other similar devices or automated artificial intelligence systems is detected, and ultimately when the User’s gaming pattern or method of operating shows that that player is not participating for recreational ends, but, rather, is a professional player.
29. GAMING SERVICES
The following terms apply only to Your use of the Gaming Services. Please note that in the event of any conflict between this Section 29 and the remaining Sections of these Terms and Conditions, this Section 29 shall prevail to the extent that it applies to Your use of the Gaming Services.

29.4 Anti-Cheating Policy
We are committed to preventing the use of unfair practices in the Gaming Services, including but not limited to player collusion. We are also committed to detecting and preventing the use of software programs that are designed to enable artificial intelligence to play on Our Platforms, including but not limited to opponent-profiling, cheating software or anything else that We deem that enables You to have an unfair advantage over other players not using such programs or systems ('AI Software'). You acknowledge and accept that We will take measures to detect and prevent the use of such programs and AI Software using methods (including but not limited to reading the list of currently running programs on a player's computer) and You agree not to use any AI Software and/or any such programs. Go to Our Unfair Advantage Policy.
If there is a reasonable suspicion that a player is involved in one of the practices described in the present Clause 29.4, or in any other practice that could be considered unlawful or fraudulent, their account will be blocked whilst the appropriate investigation is conducted. During this time, any existing funds will be retained. If, once the investigation has been concluded, no evidence is found of any irregularities, the account will be unblocked and the corresponding funds will be freed and placed at the player’s disposal. However, if evidence is found of non-compliance with the provisions of the present section 29.4, and in the case of fraud on the player’s part that affects other users, the account will be closed and the existing balance will be blocked and distributed among the players who may have been affected by the said fraudulent activity. If, when making use of the Services, a player becomes the victim of another player’s cheating, the Company will solely be liable for refunding any amounts that the affected player lost as a consequence of the cheating, as long as the Company can locate the account from which such unlawful or fraudulent conduct occurred and is able, where applicable, to access the funds in question. If more than one player is affected by unlawful or fraudulent practices from another account, and the Company can locate that account, the funds that are found in the same will be distributed pro rata between the players affected, in accordance with the losses that may have occurred.
29.4.1 Collusion and cheating
Gaining an advantage over other players is strictly prohibited, including – but not limited to – sharing information on a hand of cards with another player on the same table, sharing information that isn’t available to another player, creating a coordinated strategy with another player and accepting prize-sharing in a game, tournament or promotion in any of Our game offers. If You suspect that other players have colluded or cheated on a game table, you may inform us by e-mail, containing all the details available on the incident, to firstname.lastname@example.org. If there is evidence that determines You have breached the present Clause 29.4.2, Your account will be suspended, which may imply its closure, as well as the retention of any balance on the account.
29.4.2 Third-party tools
The use of the tools described in section 126.96.36.199 is strictly prohibited when using our Services. If there is evidence that determines You have breached one of the sections included in the present Clause 29.4.2, your account will be suspended, which may imply its closure, as well as the retention of any balance on the account.
188.8.131.52 Prohibited third-party tools
- The use of any tool that has the aim of obtaining one of the following functions or results is under all circumstances prohibited: any tool designed to circumvent our restrictions on downloadable hand histories.
- Any tool that plays without human intervention (a 'bot’).
- Any tool that makes decisions for the player or provides guidance, thereby reducing the human or chance element inherent to the game (‘assistance software’).
- Any tool that automates the process of joining a specific table or game based on a defined set of criteria, such as player statistics or notes (‘seating script’).
- Any virtual software or machine tool that allows screen-sharing and remote access.
184.108.40.206 Permitted third-party tools
By analysing card hand or game histories, players can find out patterns, strengths and weaknesses in their game (and that of their opponents), and determine areas for improvement. The Company can provide complete statistics on card hand or game histories stored in our software.
Programs that add hand histories to profile a player’s own game and/or the game of the opponents in the same poker table are permitted. Those programs include PokerTracker, Hold’em Manager and Hand2Note.
29.4.3 Chip dumping
Chip dumping occurs when players intentionally lose a hand in order to deliberately transfer their chips to another player. The account of any player who is reasonably suspected of participating or attempting to participate in chip dumping with any other player whilst using the Services will be suspended, and the suspension will be maintained whilst the corresponding in-depth investigation is conducted and the competent authorities are notified. If the Company has any evidence of intentional chip dumping practices, the player will be prohibited from using the Company’s Services, and the account will be permanently closed, with the ensuing retention of the existing balance in the accounts of the players involved in the said chip dumping. If You suspect that a player is participating in chip dumping practices, please contact us by e-mail on email@example.com
29.4.4 Abuse of the Big Blind
When starting to play heads up, the player who is on the button must play the same amount of small blinds and big blinds. The player who is on the button in the first hand must finish the game on a hand in which the opponent is on the button.
Queueing is when a player – or group of players – intentionally tries to alter or avoid specific opponents in games where registration is ‘blind’. Namely, where you shouldn’t be able to choose your opponents.
If there is evidence that a player has intentionally manipulated Our registration process, this shall be deemed a breach of the present Contract, and that account will be suspended, which may imply its closure as well as the retention of any balance on the account.
29.4.7 Fast-forward buy-in obligations
‘Ratholing’ or ‘Going South’ are common terms to refer to when a player removes a portion of their chips to reduce their stake in a game. This occurs when players stand up from the ‘fast-forward’ pool and immediately sit back down using a buy-in less than what they previously had on the table.
Players may not stand up from the fast-forward pool and immediately re-join with a stake less than the amount they previously had in the pool. To re-join with a lesser stake, at least 40 minutes must have passed for this to be deemed a new playing session.
Accounts found to be systematically abusing this feature will be given a warning, and persistent behaviour may result in further sanctions being placed against the holder of the account, which may imply its closure as well as the retention of any balance on the account.
