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 reserve the right to vary the deadline for acceptance of bets or to void any bets placed.
We reserve the right to 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 unless the betting offer is clearly intended to be available after the start of the Event (i.e. live betting, outrights).
If, in the case of live betting, delayed TV coverage or data transmission results in a bet being placed at the incorrect price immediately after the selected participant/team has gained a significant advantage, We reserve the right to void the bet, win or lose.
If an Event is cancelled and deemed void, the respective selection is considered with neutral decimal odds of one (1.00). 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.
We reserve the right to refuse in whole or in part any bet and all ambiguous bets shall be void.
We reserve the right to suspend, modify, remove and/or add any Sports Service at Our absolute discretion with immediate effect and We will not be liable for any such action.
28.5 Account Currency Changes
For the avoidance of doubt, in the event that You change Your Account Currency during the life of a bet, any winnings will be converted into Your new Account Currency at the Exchange Rates at the time of the payout.
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 aplies to Your use of the Gaming Services.
29.2 Play Money and Real Money Games

No purchase is necessary or required to play the Play Money Games, save in respect to any cost You may incur to access the Gaming Services, charged by Your Internet service provider or telecommunications provider, and You may play the Play Money Games without betting money. We reserve the right to suspend, modify, remove and/or add any Gaming Service in Our sole discretion with immediate effect and We will not be liable for any such action.

We are also committed to detecting and preventing the use of software programs which 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 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.
You may install and use the software We make available from the Platforms used to provide the Gaming Services (the 'Software') on a hard disk or other storage device and make backup copies of the Software, provided that such use and backup copying is only for Your own personal use in using the Gaming Services in accordance with these Agreements, and further, that such installation and use is made through a computer or other device of which You are the primary user. The Software's structure, organisation and code are the valuable trade secrets of the Group and/or its associated companies and/or its licensors. You obtain no rights to the Software except to use it in accordance with these Agreements. Save as expressly permitted by law, You are strictly prohibited from, and agree not to modify, adapt, translate, reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise attempt to discover the source code of the Software or any part of it or to create, publish or distribute derivative works from the Software. You agree that the Software will not be shipped, transferred or exported into any country or used in any manner prohibited by any applicable laws, restrictions or regulations.
29.6 Shared Games, Table and Database Platform
We reserve the right, but are not obliged, to run and utilise a shared table, server and database platform or system ('Shared Game/Table Platform') which enables Gaming Service users to play with players coming into the games, tables and tournaments from other websites and brands operating on the same Shared Game/Table Platform. If a Shared Game/Table Platform is used, You agree that You may be pooled into these common games/tables, at Our sole discretion, and that to the extent that You breach the terms and conditions of one site or brand that operates on the Shared Game/Table Platform, We may have You blocked, in part or full, from the entire system so that You may not play through any site or brand using or on the Shared Game/Table Platform. Without limitation to the restriction on having multiple Accounts with Us (please see Section 4), We may require that You only have one Account on the Shared Game/Table Platform if the same is used.
29.7 Play Money and Real Money Account Funding
'Play money' funds have no value and are kept separate from 'real money' funds. They are not transferable to a 'real money' account nor are they redeemable for any currency. We do not promise to accurately record the number of play money chips held by You and Your play money chips may be lost at any time. Further, We reserve the right to set a maximum chip limit for play money Accounts.
29.8 Settlement of In-Game Disputes
You fully accept and agree that random number generator ('RNG') software will determine the shuffling and dealing of cards and other randomly generated events required in the Gaming Services. If there is a discrepancy between the result showing on the Software (as installed and operated on Your hardware) and Our server, the result showing on Our server shall govern the result. Moreover, You understand and agree that (without prejudice to Your other rights and remedies) Our records shall be the final authority in determining the terms of Your use of the Gaming Services, the activity resulting therefrom and the circumstances in which such activity occurred.
29.9 Real Money Game and Tournament Currency
Where a Real Money Game or tournament is only available in a currency which is different from Your Account Currency You may in some cases be given the option to buy-in to the same in the currency of the relevant game/tournament. Such buy-in (together with any winnings) will be subject to the terms and Exchange Rates offered by Us at the relevant time. Please see Currency Converter and Frequently Asked Questions for further details. In all other cases You will only be permitted to place bets and wagers in Your Account currency.
