5. Loss of connection

If a player starts a round in a game and then loses the connection, the outcome of the round - either win or loss - will be credited to the player’s Account.

If the Company successfully identifies the use of prohibited programs, the Company reserves the right to freeze the offending player’s Account for a period of at least six (6) months; to confiscate any funds in that Account; and/or suspend the player from using the services of the Company and any of its sites.

4. A player shall not collude with fellow players (i.e. unsolicited team play). If any collusion is identified by the Company, the Company has the right, in its absolute discretion, to confiscate the winnings of all colluding players. The confiscated amount will be given to the aggrieved players.

H. Sanctions for Misconduct

In the event of player misconduct, the Company reserves the right to immediately exclude the player from any further use of the Website and to terminate the contract with the Company. Furthermore, the Company is entitled to interrupt and terminate on-going games, to block the player's Account with or without prior notice, and until clarification of the situation, retain the player’s credit on the player Account and any illegitimately won prizes at the player’s cost.

I. Termination

Both parties are entitled to terminate the contract at any time with immediate effect without statement of a reason or cause. Players can terminate their contract with the Company by sending an e-mail stating their name and the name of the Account to the Website support team. Within 2 weeks of receipt of such e-mail and response to the security question, the Company shall delete the respective Account data and pay out the credit amount on the player’s Account. If the player is unable to provide the correct answer to his/her security question, he/she must send a copy of a valid, official form of photo identification to support@bellfruitcasino.com. The details held for the player in the Account must match those visible in his/her photo identification. The conditions under III.C. apply to the payment of any credit amounts. Upon termination of the contract in accordance with this agreement, the player will have no further claim/s and/or access to his/her Account or to any related services.

J. Player Protection

1. The Company protects its players from gambling addiction by offering account limitations and account suspensions. Stricter limits and the suspension of Accounts are effective immediately, while any changes concerning the reduction of restrictions will become effective after a period of 24 hours has elapsed. Should players want to limit or suspend their Accounts in any way, they can do so by making adjustments directly on the Website in their Account settings under ‘My Data’, by writing an email to support@bellfruitcasino.com or by calling the hotline, stating their nickname and the answer to their security question.

2. A self-exclusion can be imposed by the players themselves either directly in the Account settings under ‘My Data’ or by email to support@bellfruitcasino.com. The self-exclusion period must be at least six months and can be extended indefinitely. Any undetermined bets at the time of a player's self-exclusion will be settled in the normal way, according to the normal timescales and, if subsequently applicable, winnings paid to the player. Any Account blocks due to self-exclusion cannot be undone during the agreed self-exclusion period.

3. During any self-exclusion period, a player will be unable to access their Account. All remaining funds on the Account will be paid out to a bank Account. The player must provide the Company with payment details. If the player’s bank account cannot be satisfactorily located, the Company will keep the remaining funds for a period of six (6) months. If the player does not provide correct bank account details during this time, the Company will give the funds to the Responsible Gaming Trust after the end of this period.

4. No marketing material will be sent to the player during self-exclusion and the Company cannot accept any deposits or bets from the player. Once the self-exclusion period has elapsed, a player may unlock his/her Account by contacting the support hotline. There is a 24 hour delay after agreeing an Account unlock before a player will have access to the Website again.

5. If the player does choose to self-exclude, the Company will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that it complies with the player's self-exclusion. However, in agreeing to self-exclude, players accept that they have a parallel undertaking not to seek to circumvent the self-exclusion. Accordingly, the Company has no responsibility or liability for any subsequent consequences or losses howsoever caused that the player may suffer or incur if a player commences or continues gambling through additional online accounts where the player has changed any of the registration details or has provided misleading, inaccurate or incomplete details or otherwise has sought to circumvent the self-exclusion agreed.

II. PLAYING FOR CASH

A. General provisions

1. In order for players to be able to participate in the offered games and wager cash, they must make a cash deposit into their Account by using the payment methods available on the Website. The wagering of cash in casino games shall only be available to players resident in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. For the purposes of this clause, the prohibition or otherwise of the activities of the Company in any given jurisdiction shall be determined by the Company at its sole and absolute discretion.

2. All amounts transferred to the player’s Account are held by the Company as fiduciary on behalf of the player free of cost (as long as the Account is active) and interest. The player may neither treat the Company as a financial institute nor expect interest.

3. We are required by our British licence to inform customers about what happen to funds which we hold on account for you, and the extent to which funds are protected in the event of insolvency www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/Consumers/Protection-of-customer-funds.aspx. We hold customer funds separate from Company funds in an independent bank account. These funds are not protected in the event of insolvency. This meets the Gambling Commission's requirements for the segregation of customer funds at the level: basic segregation. Subject to its regulatory obligations, the Company reserves the right to change the terms upon which customer funds are held.

4. Pound Sterling (£) is the lead currency of the platform.

B. Deposit

1. Deposits to the Account are made by transfer of money to the Company’s account by way of the payment methods stated on the Website. The Company reserves the right to change the accepted methods of payment at its sole discretion. The Company further reserves the right to accept certain methods of payment only subject to the fulfilment of certain conditions. The Company does not warrant that all methods of payment are available at all times.

2. A deposit is considered deposited at the time the deposit is irrevocably credited to the Company’s account and accrued to the relevant player’s Account. The time until a deposit is credited into the Company’s account depends on the chosen payment method. The minimum acceptable deposit amount is £10. The Company reserves the right to amend the limit or arrange for additional and repeated examinations on deposits at its sole discretion. Furthermore the maximum amount that can be credited into a player's Account per month is £10,000. Of course, the exact maximum amount also depends on the payment method chosen by the user. Nevertheless, this limit cannot be exceeded. Altering this amount is only possible by sending a written request to customer support, which will perform any changes in accordance with the responsible gaming guidelines.

3. The Company can, under certain circumstances, credit a player’s Account with so called “bonus money”. The conditions for the crediting of the bonus (e.g. test bonus, advertising premium) and the amount of the bonus is determined by the Company and set out on the Website from time to time.

4. The bonus is stated separately on the Account. It can only be paid out once it has been transformed into real cash winnings. If an Account contains both the player’s own money and bonus money, the bonus money will only be available for wagering once the existing money has been used. Specific bonus conditions may be published on the Website with the launch of specific bonus schemes.

5. Your Account should not be used as a banking facility and deposits into an Account should be made for the sole purpose of using the funds in the games. Funds deposited into the player Account should at least be used once as a stake within the games before they can be paid out.

6. To prevent money laundering activities, all Account and/or money transactions are checked by the Company. Any suspicious Account and/or money transactions may be reported to the relevant authorities.

7. If any sum is incorrectly credited to your Account, you are obliged to notify us as soon as possible, and we are entitled to recover such credits.  In the event that a sum is mistakenly credited to your Account, and this money is withdrawn, you must reimburse us with this money on request.  The Company shall be entitled to set-off any subsequent winnings owed to you to satisfy this liability.

8.  You may be legally obliged to account to the relevant tax authorities for any winnings from playing games on the Website.  This remains your responsibility and we are not liable to account to any such authority for any of your personal taxes.

C. Payouts

1. Winnings or parts thereof will be paid out upon request of the player. The requested payout sum must be at least £10, unless you are closing your Account. Payouts can only be made to the Account of the player requesting such payout and under no circumstances can such payouts be made to the Account of another player or third party. The player must submit a valid ID document (passport, driver’s licence etc.) at his/her first payout request. In case the player does not have a valid passport, driving license or equivalent, the company will only accept other types of documents at its sole discretion. Said documents must leave no doubt as to the players´ identity and age.

2. A payout of over £100 cannot be requested where the money deposited has not been used in any games or only a few games. In such circumstances, the Company may ask a player for more information in regard to the requested payout and review its decisions based on the new information provided. You will not be able to withdraw funds from your Account until your identity details have been submitted and fully validated in line with our verification process or as otherwise required in respect of our regulatory obligations.

3. A request for a payout cannot be made while a game is being played.

4. The Company fulfils payment obligations by transferring the requested amounts due to an account named by the player and registered in the name of the player or by another payment system, depending on technical availability on the Website. Any transaction costs due (e.g. for international transfers) shall be borne by the player. The methods on offer may vary, depending on the players’ country of origin. All available withdrawal options are shown in the payout section of the Website.

5. The Company undertakes thorough checks whenever a player requests a payout. The Company aims to process payouts within 3 business days of the request being made, subject to a standard security screening of the account details. In the case of the first withdrawal request, this period is calculated from when the player’s ID document (passport, driving licence, National ID card) has been submitted and approved. Furthermore the Company reserves the right to verify the entitlement of the player and, in case of doubt, to retain the payment. To provide evidence of the entitlement, the player is required to submit a written request for payment. The personal data of the player owning the cash account and the owner of the bank account must correspond. The Company is entitled to request further evidence identifying the player (e.g. a certified proof of identity) and verification of the named bank account prior to any out-payment and to retain the amounts until sufficient evidence has been provided.

6. The Company complies with regulations and guidelines for the prevention of money laundering and the funding of terrorism. Suspicious transactions shall be investigated by the Company and, if necessary, a suspicious transaction report will be made by the Company to the competent authorities. In any such event, the Company is prohibited from informing the player or any third party involved, save in limited circumstances, that an investigation is being or may be carried out, or that information has been or may be transmitted to the competent authorities. Furthermore, in the event of any suspicious transactions, the Company may suspend, block or close the Account of the relevant player(s) and withhold funds as may be required by law and/or by the competent Authorities.

D. Inactivity and Closure of Accounts

1. If an Account remains inactive (i.e.: when no login is performed at the Website) for a period of more than 12 consecutive months, the Company is entitled to charge a monthly Account maintenance fee of £1 (see F.3), commencing in the 13th month of inactivity. Following 12 months of uninterrupted inactivity, the Company will send a reminder e-mail to the player via the e-mail address saved in his/her Account details. Upon receipt of this reminder e-mail, the player will have 30 days to log into his/her player Account. If no login is registered within this 30-day period, £1 of real money credit or bonus money credit will be deducted from the balance. If the player logs in within the 30-day period, no charge will be incurred. If the Account remains inactive after 13 consecutive months, the player will be sent a reminder e-mail every month and a monthly charge of £1 will be incurred and deducted from the real money credit or bonus money credit of the player Account accordingly. Where an Account has been classified as inactive, the player retains the possibility of logging into their Account and withdrawing all funds remaining in that Account through the available payout methods outlined in these General Terms and Conditions.

2. If the Account remains inactive for more than 12 months and the Account balance is £0, the Company shall be entitled to delete the Account.

3. The inactivity fee will be incurred on a monthly basis until the next login is performed at the Company’s Website. If there is no real/bonus money credit in the player's Account, no inactivity fee will be charged.

4. If no transaction has been recorded on a player’s Account for thirty months and if there is still a real money balance on the Account, the Company shall remit the remaining real money balance to the player’s bank account. If the player or his bank account cannot be satisfactorily located, the remaining real money balance will be given to the Responsible Gaming Trust.

5. The player is allowed to request reimbursement of any inactive account fee paid. Reimbursement will only be granted if the player can provide adequate proof of one of the following instances:

     

  • when the player could not access his Account due to lack of internet connectivity;

  • when the player could not access his Account due to health related impediments;

  • when the player could not access his Account due to sincere and genuine reasons;

  • when the player activates the Account after all real money or bonus money balance is at £0 due to incurred inactive Account fees, as long as such activation is within three (3) months from when the last fee was incurred. In such a case, the Company will pay a maximum of up to six (6) months inactive Account fees;

  • and in any other situation whereby the Company deems the player’s request to be justified,

  •  

in each case to be determined by the Company in its absolute discretion.

E. Wagers and Conditions of Winnings

1. Only games played in accordance with the applicable rules of the game are scored as won games. Furthermore, during the entire time a game is played, the players’ device must have a working connection to the game server. If the connection gets lost during a game, there is a mechanism in place which takes over in order to end the game in an orderly and fair manner. Further information on loss of connection can be found under I. D. Games, 5. Loss of connection.

2. When a game is duly rated, the total amount of wagers minus the Company fees (see Part III F.2) will be credited to the player Account of the winner.

3. The Company reserves the right to correct results in hindsight or to declare results void, if the result of a game was caused by a technical default, fraudulent behaviour of a player or through a fake wager. If this correction leads to a negative balance on the player's Account, the player shall be obliged to settle the difference by crediting the Account with the required amount.

F. Fees

1. The registration and set up of an Account is free of charge.

2. In consideration of the provision of the games service, the Account management and the solicitation of the players on the Website, the Company retains a fee (called “Rake”), calculated as a percentage of the amounts wagered by the players. A sliding scale applies and is calculated in correspondence with the amounts wagered. The applicable percentage is set out in the help section of the respective game.

3. Following uninterrupted inactivity for a duration of at least 12 months, a monthly account maintenance fee of £1 will be charged by the Company after the 13th month of continuous inactivity.

4. Processing fees might incur for making a withdrawal depending on the payment system selected by the user.

6. For each reminder relating to a return payment owed to the Company, the Company shall charge the player a fee of £4.

7. The Company shall charge an administration fee of £3 for any request to delete a player's Account.

8. Any other costs relating to the transfer of funds (e.g. bank fees for out payments, in payments, or administration charges) or additional charges (e.g. for credit card returns or charges for international transfers) are borne by the player and the Company is entitled to debit such costs from the Account. Costs for return or unintentional payments (e.g. due to the provision of an inaccurate account number or insufficient funds on the account) that are within player’s responsibility are borne by the player. The Company’s right to claim further damages from the player (such as legal fees or fees of a collecting agency) are not affected. The Company is entitled to retain such costs from the player’s Account and to instruct a collecting agency to collect money due from the player at the player’s cost.

III. DATA PROTECTION

1. Personal data of the player is needed to register on the Website. The Company needs this data to administer the Website, fulfil its agreement with the player and to process and obtain payments.

The player understands that the processing of this data is absolutely necessary for the purpose of providing the service. Furthermore, the player explicitly agrees that the data provided may be retained and used even after the deletion of the Account, as long as it is required for administration purposes and/or for complying with legal obligation of safekeeping.

3. The Company may send the data to its staff, associate/s, agent/s, sub-contractor/s, product provider/s and/or investment institution/s, (all of which shall be made subject to such confidentiality and data protection obligations as shall be considered necessary by the Company, in-keeping with its obligations in fulfilment of these Terms and Conditions) for the purpose of providing the said services and/or to any regulatory or public authorities to comply with its regulatory or other obligations in terms of law, and for these purposes the player consents to the transfer of his/her personal data to any country and/or jurisdiction where such person/s may be situated.

4. The Company is entitled to save and process connection data, in particular source and destination IPs and all other log files, for the protection of its own servers and the servers of third parties. The Company is further entitled to process the data of anonymous statistics. Otherwise, the Company will save and process data only to the extent it is required to provide its services.

5. The Company analyses and profiles the player’s website preferences. This is needed to review, develop and improve the products and services on offer as well as to provide players with relevant information from the Company’s marketing program.

Players are given the opportunity to opt out from receiving such information about products and services.
