If you are found by us to be under the Minimum Age, or allowing another individual under the Minimum Age to participate in Wagering, or if we suspect that you are not of the Minimum Age, we may terminate your account and any winnings will be null and void or may be paid to the Regulator. No claim may be made against us in these circumstances. Any initial deposits made by a Patron in such account will be reported to the Regulator and may be subject to forfeiture or other disposal as may be directed by the Regulator pursuant to regulations. We may refuse to refund any Bonuses or winning funds provided to or gained by a Patron in violation of these Terms.
4.2 When considering your Patron registration application and certain deposit and withdrawal transactions, we may use an independent risk management provider to verify your age, name, address and social security number or any other information that you provide to us. In performing these checks, the risk management provider may keep a record of your information. The purpose of such checks is to confirm your age, identity and geographic location only. Such checks should not impact your credit score or creditworthiness. These checks enable accounts to be opened more quickly, reduce the need to obtain age and identification documents and assist us with our age verification licensing obligations and crime and fraud prevention program. You hereby consent to our making of such an inquiry of any credit reporting agency for this purpose.
4.3 If we cannot satisfactorily complete our age and identity verification process, we may ask you to provide personal identification documents to further confirm and validate your age and identity. Such checks may include (but may not be limited to): (a) proof of your age (with a passport or any other government issued identity document providing your date of birth); (b) proof of your address (with a current utility bill or a bank or card statement); and (c) proof of your identity (with a valid government-issued identity card, driver’s license, social security number, passport identification (for non-U.S. residents), a current utility bill or bank or card statement). We may request notarized document copies, meaning the documents must be stamped and attested to by a notary public. We reserve the right in our sole discretion to request additional information from you or as may be required by Applicable Laws. Should the documents fail our internal security checks (for example, if we suspect that the documents have been tampered with or are in any way provided to mislead or misrepresent), we will be under no obligation to accept such documents as valid and will be under no obligation to provide feedback on the exact nature of our findings with regard to the documents. We may suspend your account until you have satisfactorily completed these checks or we may terminate your account. In such circumstances, we may in our sole discretion refuse to refund any Bonuses or winning funds provided to or gained by you. Any initial deposit funds in such account will be returned to you. We will communicate all requests to you via the ‘My Account – Confirm My Details’ section of the Bally Bet Platform and also by email.
4.4 You understand and agree to us performing background checks on you for any reason related to the Services at any time, including any identity checks or any inquiries into your personal history, which may include accessing financial information where publicly available. The basis for such checks will be dependent on the specific case, and could include verification of your registration details, such as the name, address and age, verification of financial transactions, verification of gaming activity and verification of your ability to Wager. We will be under no obligation to advise you of such checks taking place and we may use third party companies and social media sites in conducting such checks. Following such checks, we may decide in our sole discretion to: (a) restrict the amount you may deposit and Wager and/or the frequency of your Wagering activity for a specific or indefinite period of time; and/or (b) suspend your account and withhold all funds.
4.5 Registration Acceptance and Personal Accounts: Upon acceptance of your registration as a Patron, you will be issued a personal account and sent confirmation of your registration by email. You cannot use the full functionality of your account, including processing any withdrawals until you have confirmed your email address by clicking on the link in your registration confirmation email. If you have entered an incorrect email address at the time of registration, you can update your details in the ‘My Account’ section of the Bally Bet Platform.
4.6 Declined Applications: We may decline acceptance of an account application at any time and for any reason.

We cannot repay payments made by us to another account due to incorrect account details provided by you.

In addition, the amount of the initial failed deposit will be invalidated, forfeited and/or deducted from your account balance. In the event that your account balance is not sufficient to collect such forfeitures through deductions, you expressly acknowledge and agree that we may collect any monies owed by you to us from you and from any accounts of which you make us aware, including accounts provided in connection with the Services or financial institution accounts, without any further notice being required. You expressly acknowledge and agree that, in the event of non-payment of debt, we may proceed to enforce our rights, which may include legal action and attendant cost and attorneys’ fees.

11 ACCEPTANCE AND VALIDATION OF WAGERING
11.1 Accepted Wagers:
11.1.1 You acknowledge and agree that a Wager you place via the Bally Bet Platform is a binding and irrevocable offer to place the Wager. We reserve the right at any time to limit or refuse to accept the Wager.
11.1.2 A Wager is only accepted via the Bally Bet Platform when you receive confirmation from us by way of on-screen display that the Wager has been accepted. Any Wagers attempted by any other method will not be accepted. At the time of acceptance, the amount of the Wager has been accepted by our servers and will be charged against your account.
11.1.3 You are responsible for reviewing your Wagers prior to and after placement in order to verify each Wager was successfully made and is accurate. You must immediately notify us regarding any error or discrepancy.
11.1.4 All Wagers are final. We cannot cancel or refund Wagers once they have been confirmed by us unless the Wager is declared void for any reason set out in these Terms or the Additional Terms. We accept no responsibility for Wagers that may have been submitted and not confirmed by our systems or otherwise accepted by us. You may choose to decide to Cash Out your Wager if this option is made available to you.
11.2 Minimum and Maximum Wagers: Minimum and maximum Wager amounts apply depending on the Product. Please refer to the Sports House Rules for more information. We may also restrict the amount you may Wager and/or the frequency of your Wagering activity in accordance with Section 4.4.
11.3 Maximum Payouts: Maximum Payout limits apply to different types of Wagers depend on the Product. Please refer to the Sports House Rules for more information.
11.4 Deduction of Wagers / Unresolved Wagers: The cost of a Wager will be deducted from your account at the time of placing your Wager, no matter when the result is determined. We cannot refund Wagers purchased for future plays that have not yet been Settled or where you decide to Cash Out your Wager if this option is made available to you in accordance with the Sports House Rules. Any winnings related to such Wagers will be credited to your account once they have been Settled.
11.5 Our Right to Cancel / Terminate or Amend Limits and Betting Options: We may cancel, amend, remove or terminate any Event, Wagering option or Product, or amend any Wager limit on your account, at any time in our sole discretion without notice. If a Wagering option or Product is cancelled, amended, removed or terminated in a way that makes it impossible to Settle a Wager that you placed, then that Product will be deemed null and void and the Wager will be credited back to your account.
12 PAYMENT OF WINNINGS
12.1 Crediting Winnings: Winnings due on Wagers placed through your account will be credited to your current deposit balance automatically. This update of your account is not ‘proof of win’. If upon manual review there is evidence of fraud, Malfunction or malpractice, we may void certain Wagers and winnings and amend accounts accordingly.
12.2 Rounding of Winnings: We use a Wager multiplier to calculate and accumulate odds and it is therefore possible that for certain Wagers, Payouts can be displayed for presentational clarity having been rounded down to two decimal places. However, our (and/or any of our third party service providers’) servers calculate and record the exact decimal value of the accumulated Payouts and Patrons’ balances.
12.3 Taxation on Winnings: Any applicable taxes and fees and related regulatory reporting obligations in connection with any winnings awarded to you are your sole responsibility, and you hereby release us from any liability associated with this or any related actions taken by us. You also acknowledge that we are required to report certain payments paid to you to state and federal governments.
12.4 Withholding of Winnings: The Regulator requires us to withhold any and all winnings if your winnings are subject to taxation by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service, or any other taxing jurisdiction or agency, and if you have a past-due, setoff obligation properly subject to such withholding. This may include, but is not limited to, child support or overpayment of government subsidies.
13.1 You are responsible for any and all telecommunication network and Internet access services fees and costs, and all other consents and permissions required in connection with your use of the Bally Bet Platform and the Services. We will not be liable for any acts or omissions made by any third party providers that you have contracted with to gain access to the Bally Bet Platform.
13.2 If you are disconnected from the Internet or a mobile telephone network, then:
13.2.1 if you have not commenced the Wagering when you are disconnected, there will be no effect on your account;
13.2.2 if you had commenced Wagering when you were disconnected and no input is required from you to complete the Wager, the Wagering will be recorded on our servers upon the Bally Bet Platform’s acceptance of the Wager, the Wager will stand, the outcome will be reflected in your account status. The Wager may be accepted while you are disconnected, in which case you may in certain circumstances be able to view the round of Wagering completed prior to or during the period of disconnection. Alternatively, the Wager outcome may not have been determined while you were disconnected, in which case, upon your reconnection to the Internet and the Bally Bet Platform, you may in certain circumstances still be able to resume the Wagering, although the state of the Wager may not be at the same state prior to the disconnection. We do not guarantee that the Bally Bet Platform will recall your exact status prior to disconnecting; or
13.2.3 if you had commenced Wagering when you were disconnected but your input is required to complete the Wager so the Wager is not accepted by the Bally Bet Platform, our servers will not record the Wager and, upon your reconnection to the Internet and the Bally Bet Platform, you will be able to continue using the Bally Bet Platform and provide the input necessary to Wager, although it may not be at the same state prior to the disconnection.
13.3 In the case where the Location Service has, at the outset of placing a Wager verified the Patron’s physical presence in the Authorized Gaming Jurisdiction but, at a later point in the gaming session, fails to successfully verify the Patron’s continued physical presence in such jurisdiction, the Bally Bet Platform and the Service Parties’ records will be determinative as to the acceptance of the Wager at the time of the subsequent failed location verification.
13.4 Any Wagers which are subject to a Malfunction will be deemed null and void and under no circumstances will we be liable to you for any amounts (including any Winnings or potential winnings) arising out of or connected to such Malfunction.
13.5 Where a Malfunction interrupts a Wager to the point that it cannot be restarted from exactly the same position without any detrimental impact to you or any other Patron, we will, acting in good faith, use reasonable efforts to minimize any loss you have incurred. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no case will we be liable for indirect, incidental or consequential damages.
13.6 Where there is a Malfunction resulting in an error in the transmission of odds or prices, Wagers will be Settled at the correct price at the time of acceptance as determined by us. If we accept a Wager on an Event where offering Wagering on the Event itself was in error or otherwise not permitted, we may void the Wager, reverse any winnings credited to your account that are related to such voided Wager and return to you the amount you initially Wagered.
13.7 If there is a dispute as to whether a pricing Malfunction has occurred, the odds available in the general market in respect of such Event at the time of the pricing Malfunction will be taken into account to determine the correct odds.
13.8 Any winnings paid to you as a result of a Malfunction will be deemed to be held by you on behalf of us whilst we investigate such Malfunction, and will be repayable to us by you should such investigation prove that the winnings arose as a result of a Malfunction. Where an amount is repayable to us, we may deduct such amount from any monies you have in your account.
13.9 To the extent that you have already used any winnings awarded to you as a result of a Malfunction to place subsequent Wagers, we reserve the right to cancel such Wagers and/or withhold any subsequent winnings which you may have won. If we have paid out on any such Wagers, such winnings will be deemed to be held by you on behalf of us and will be repayable immediately by you to us. Where an amount is repayable to us, we may deduct such amount from any monies you have in your account.
13.10 You acknowledge and agree that, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in these Terms, (a) the Service Parties’ records will make the final determination with respect to any Wagering activity, including whether a Wager was placed and the details of the pricing, odds and game play; and (b) we will not be held liable for the failure of any equipment, technology or services, wherever physically located or provided, which prevents the placement or acceptance of Wagers or contact with us.
14 REGULATION OF RESULTS
14.1 Patron Account Balances: The balance of your account will at all times be as recorded on our server.
14.2 Results: Unless expressly stated otherwise in these Terms or any Additional Terms, for the purposes of Settling your Wager, the initial official result following the closure or end of an Event will be considered final and conclusive. Any subsequent change to results, whether due to disciplinary hearings or otherwise, will not be considered for the purposes of Settling your Wager.
14.3 Our Server Evidenced Results: If there is a discrepancy between either the numbers that you believe that you have entered or the graphic display of the Wager you have played and those in the applicable Service Party database, the numbers in the Service Party database are considered valid and no correspondence disputing such issues will be entered into by us.
14.4 Our Decision is Final: You agree that we and the applicable Service Parties’ records will be the final authority in determining the terms of any Products, any Wagers you place, the circumstances in which such Wagers were placed, and the outcome of the same.
14.5 Wager Settlement: Unless expressly stated otherwise in the Sports House Rules, all Wagers are Settled according to the price shown at the time of Wager acceptance, subject to any Malfunction error corrections and Cash Outs. In limited circumstances, after your Wager has been accepted, the odds may show in the current Wagers and Wager history section of your account as rounded slightly down. This rounding display does not affect the payment of your Wager, which will be Settled at the correct odds (at the time your bet was accepted).
14.6 Wager Result Acceptance: By placing any further Wagers with us, you accept the results of any previous Wager.
14.7 Activity Monitoring: Use of the Bally Bet Platform may be monitored to ensure that you are not using the Bally Bet Platform with a frequency or in a manner which might suggest you are using it for suspected criminal activities.

14.8 Suspicious Activity: If we determine or suspect that a transaction is suspicious (including collusion between Patrons whether using our systems or other systems) and involves or may involve financial crime, fraud, cheating or irresponsible gaming behavior or breaches any of our policies, we may retain the amount of that transaction and any other transaction made by you. We will be under no obligation to provide you with any reasons for doing so. In addition, we may disclose information of such activity (including any details relating to you) to the Regulator and the proper authorities (such as regulatory authorities, governing bodies, financial institutions or law enforcement agencies to assist with any investigation).
14.9 Automatic Wagering / Manipulation of Software: We constantly review the use of the Services in order to detect the use of artificial intelligence software. Automatic placing of Wagers by software (including “bots” and any software used for automatic Wagering) or any other manipulation of the Wagers or Events or your/another Patron’s account data is not permitted and may result in closure of your account, closure of all associated accounts, and the cancellation of any outstanding winnings and deposits. Patrons that breach this Section will not be eligible for reinstatement under different screen names.
14.10 You agree not to break into, access, or attempt to break into or access or otherwise circumvent our security measures, or intentionally disconnect from Wagering activities while engaging with the Bally Bet Platform. If we have reason to suspect that you are in breach of the foregoing or that you are in an account or group of accounts that are operating systematically (for example, employing specific Wagering techniques or Wagering as a group), we have the right to use Full Protective Measures against your account.
14.11 Event Rigging: When you place a Wager, it must be done so with your own judgment and it is presumed by us that you have no inside information or inside knowledge about the Event, and that you do not know what the outcome of the Event will be. You also confirm that you have not relied on the advice of any of our employees in relation to your Wager. We reserve the right to void any Wagers where this Section is breached. If there is suspicion or any reasonable evidence based on your Wagering activity and/or Wagering patterns or otherwise of price or Event rigging, or manipulation in relation to an Event, or if the integrity of an Event has been called into question, we may decide to void all relevant Wagers or withhold Settlement until the outcome of any investigation or suspicion is confirmed. If no fraudulent conduct is found to have occurred, Settlement of such Wagers will be processed. Where there is reasonable evidence that a Patron or a syndicate of Patrons has been involved in any Event rigging, we reserve the right to use Full Protective Measures against your account.

Such actual or suspected acts will be dealt with by the relevant Group Website in accordance with its policies. This may result in the withholding of winnings, voiding of Wagers and related Bonuses and retention of your related deposits by the relevant Group Website, together with the closure of your account with the relevant Group Website. For the avoidance of doubt, we will not be able to assist you in relation to any decisions made by the relevant Group Website.

23.1 Local Laws: We make no representation that content or materials on the Bally Bet Platform are appropriate or available for use in jurisdictions outside the United States. The availability of our Services does not constitute an offer, solicitation or invitation by us for the use of our Services outside of the State of New York. Only persons legally permitted by their respective jurisdiction may participate in Wagering. Access to the Bally Bet Platform from jurisdictions where such access is illegal is prohibited. If you choose to access the Bally Bet Platform from other jurisdictions, you do so on your own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws. Neither we nor the Bally's Group shall be responsible for any such violation of Applicable Laws. You may not use or export the Content or materials on the Bally Bet Platform in violation of U.S. export laws and regulations. You agree to comply with all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States and the country in which you reside (if different from the United States).
23.2 Events Beyond Our Reasonable Control: If we are prevented from providing all or part of the Bally Bet Platform (including any service or Product) or fulfilling any of our obligations under these Terms due to an Event Beyond Control, the Bally Bet Platform (including any service Product) may be suspended until such time as we are able to provide access to the Bally Bet Platform (or any affected part thereof) or fulfill any obligations under these Terms. You agree to waive any claim against us which may arise in such circumstances.
23.3 If we cannot offer the Services due to an Event Beyond Control, the Services may be offered by another group company of the Bally’s Group.
23.4 For service quality assurance, we may record and collect contact made by you to our Customer Support team in compliance with Applicable Laws and in accordance with the permissions granted by you, subject to us providing any disclosures to you as required by Applicable Laws.
23.5 We will not tolerate any abusive behavior exhibited by Patrons to Bally Bet or our employees or our Affiliates. In the event that we in our sole discretion deem that your behavior, whether via telephone, live chat, email or otherwise, has been abusive or derogatory towards any of our employees or our Affiliates, we may suspend or terminate your account.
23.6 To the extent they do not conflict with the terms of these Terms, you agree to the terms and conditions of any other third-party service provider that provides third party services through the Bally Bet Platform or the Services.
23.7 Nothing in these Terms will be construed so as to grant you any security interest whatsoever over the assets of Bally Bet, including on any amounts standing to the credit of your account.
23.8 Separate Effect: If any part of these Terms is disallowed or found to be ineffective or unenforceable in any respect, then the other provisions of these Terms will continue to apply.
23.9 No Waiver of Rights: Any failure by us to insist, in any one or more instances, upon performance of any of these Terms or to exercise any rights hereunder, will not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment of the future performance by us of any rights or as a waiver of any preceding or succeeding breach of any of these Terms, and will not excuse you from any performance under the Terms.
23.10 Third Parties: These Terms form an agreement between you and us and are not intended to give any rights to any third party unless otherwise stated. This does not affect our right to transfer our rights under Section 23.11. For the avoidance of doubt, each company of the Bally’s Group is an intended third party beneficiary of these Terms.
23.11 Transfer of Rights: We may wish to transfer, assign, sub-license or pledge our rights or obligations under these Terms in whole or in part to any of our parent, subsidiary and/or affiliate entities, or to any other legal entity, including: (a) any of the Service Parties; or (b) if we restructure our business or if there is a sale of our business. You agree that we may do so provided that in the case of a transfer, after we notify you of the date on which we transfer our rights and obligations under these Terms, your rights in connection with these Terms will be against the new legal entity. These Terms are personal to you and you may not transfer, assign, sub-license or pledge in any manner any of your rights or obligations under these Terms to anyone else.
23.12 CHOICE OF LAW; DISPUTE RESOLUTION; ARBITRATION
PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY. IT AFFECTS YOUR RIGHTS.
23.12.1 Governing law: These Terms will be governed by the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of laws.
23.12.2 AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE: YOU AND EACH OF THE SERVICE PARTIES AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL CLAIMS AND DISPUTES ARISING FROM OR RELATING IN ANY WAY TO THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THESE TERMS, YOUR USE OF THE SERVICE, OR YOUR AND EACH OF THE SERVICE PARTIES’ DEALINGS WITH ONE ANOTHER SHALL BE FINALLY SETTLED AND RESOLVED THROUGH BINDING INDIVIDUAL ARBITRATION AS DESCRIBED IN THIS SECTION.
23.12.3 This agreement to arbitrate is intended to be interpreted broadly. The arbitration will be governed by the Consumer Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”), as modified by this section.
23.12.4 The arbitration will be conducted by using a single arbitrator with substantial experience in resolving commercial contract disputes that you and each of the service parties agree upon in writing or if you and the service parties cannot agree that is appointed by the AAA from its roster.
23.12.5 For any claim where the total amount of the award sought is $10,000 or less, the arbitration shall be conducted solely based on telephone or online appearances and/or written submissions.
23.12.6 If the claim exceeds $10,000, the right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA rules, and the hearing (if any) must take place in New York County in New York.
23.12.7 The arbitrator’s ruling is binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction, or application may be made to such court for judicial acceptance of any award and an order of enforcement, as the case may be.
23.12.8 This agreement to arbitrate will survive termination of your use of the service and your relationship with each of the service parties. This agreement to arbitrate involves interstate commerce and, therefore, shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, and not by state law. Information on AAA and how to start arbitration can be found at www.adr.org or by calling 800-778-7879.
23.12.9 THERE IS NO JUDGE OR JURY IN ARBITRATION. ARBITRATION PROCEDURES ARE SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT AND REVIEW BY A COURT IS LIMITED. ANY DISPUTE SHALL BE ARBITRATED ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS, AND NOT AS A CLASS ACTION, REPRESENTATIVE ACTION, CLASS ARBITRATION OR ANY SIMILAR PROCEEDING. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE THE CLAIMS OF MULTIPLE PARTIES.
23.12.11 You and each of the service parties agree that all challenges to the validity and applicability of this agreement to arbitrate — i.e. whether a particular claim or dispute is subject to arbitration — shall be determined by the arbitrator. If this agreement to arbitrate in this section is found unenforceable or to not apply for a given dispute, then the proceeding must be brought exclusively in the state courts of competent jurisdiction located in New York County in New York or the United States district court located in New York County in New York, as appropriate, and you agree to submit to the personal jurisdiction of each of these courts for the purpose of litigating such claims or disputes, and you still waive your right to a jury trial, waive your right to initiate or proceed in a class or collective action, and remain bound by any and all limitations on liability and damages included in these terms.
23.12.12 Misuse of Intellectual Property: Notwithstanding the agreement to arbitrate in Section 23.12.2, we reserve the right to obtain monetary damages, equitable and injunctive relief from a court of law with regard to a claim for the alleged unlawful use of our Intellectual Property Rights. In the event that we prevail in any such action or proceedings, you agree to pay, in addition to all other remedies to which we as the prevailing party may be entitled, the costs and expenses incurred by us in conducting or defending the suit, action, or proceeding, including any attorneys' fees and expenses and court costs, even if not recoverable by law (including, without limitation, all fees, taxes, costs, and expenses incident to appellate and post-judgment proceedings).
23.12.13 YOU AGREE THAT BY CLICKING THAT YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND BY USING THE BALLY BET PLATFORM, PLATFORM CONTENT, ANY SERVICE OR ANY PRODUCTS, YOU AND EACH OF THE SERVICE PARTIES ARE EACH WAIVING THE RIGHT TO A COURT OR JURY TRIAL OR TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION. YOU AND EACH OF THE SERVICE PARTIES AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR, OR ITS, INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS, REPRESENTATIVE, OR COLLECTIVE PROCEEDING. ANY ARBITRATION WILL TAKE PLACE ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS; CLASS ARBITRATIONS AND CLASS ACTIONS ARE NOT PERMITTED. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY PROVISION IN THESE TERMS TO THE CONTRARY, IF THE CLASS-ACTION WAIVER ABOVE IS DEEMED INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE YOU AGREE THAT YOU SHALL NOT SEEK TO, AND WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO, ARBITRATE CLASS OR COLLECTIVE CLAIMS.
