Games Betting Rules
APPLICABILITY OF THESE RULES
The following rules (the "Games Betting Rules") govern the end user's use of all the Operator's interactive games betting products and services (the "Games") offered via the "GAMES" tab of www.sbotop.com and/or available at www.sbotop.com (the "Website"). For the purposes of these Games Betting Rules, the term "Games" shall include the betting products and services offered by GAMES tab. They form part of the Operator's General Terms and Conditions, which apply to all the interactive and wagering products and services the Operator offers to individuals who register for or are holders of a betting account with the Operator. In the case of any inconsistency between the General Terms and Conditions and any of these Games Betting Rules, the General Terms and Conditions shall prevail.
All bets on the Games ("Games Bets") accepted by the Operator are subject to these Games Betting Rules.
Throughout these Games Betting Rules, references to "we", "our", or "us" refer to the Operator and references to "the customer", "you" or "your" refer to the end user.
GENERAL GAMES RULES
These General Games Rules are supplemented by (and are deemed to include) rules relating to each specific game ("Specific Game Betting Rules"). Where there is any inconsistency between these General Games Rules and the Specific Game Betting Rules, the latter will apply. See rule 16 for the available Specific Game Betting Rules.
1. EFFECTIVE DATE OF THE RULES
These Rules are effective as of 14 February 2010.
2. INCONSISTENCY BETWEEN ENGLISH AND OTHER LANGUAGES
In the event of any inconsistency between the English and the non-English versions of the Games Betting Rules, the English version shall prevail.
3. INTERPRETATION OF RULES
If there is any dispute over the interpretation of these Games Betting Rules, the Operator's interpretation shall prevail.
4. BETTING METHOD
The Operator will only accept Games Bets that are made online. Any other betting method (eg telephone betting) will not be accepted.
5. VALID GAMES BETS
A Games Bet is deemed accepted only when the Operator has allocated an identification number (a "Bet ID") to it.
6. BETTING HISTORY
If you wish to view details of your Games Bets at any time, you may check the Statement available within the relevant Game.
7. RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR
To ensure that the Games are completely fair, all results are produced by a random number generator ("RNG"). The methodology of the RNG for each Game has been evaluated and certified by an independent third party testing company.
8. CONNECTION FAILURES DURING GAME PLAY
A 'Draw' is the selection of a result for a game on a random basis. Our games are defined as either "Draw On Demand" or "Common Draw" games.
Draw On Demand Games - A game where the result is unique to each player (eg virtual games, slot machines, scratchcards, keno, video poker and single-player roulette).
If connection is lost whilst playing a single-stage Draw On Demand game (eg a scratchcard), the game will be completed automatically for you.
If connection is lost whilst playing a multi-stage Draw On Demand game (eg a slot machine that has a bonus round) and your game has entered the second stage, your game details will be retained so that you can log back in and continue play. If your game did not enter the second stage before loss of connection, the game will be completed automatically for you.
When connection is lost during a Draw On Demand game, only the current game is handled. If Auto Play was used by the customer to specify further games, the pending games will be cancelled. No funds will be removed from the customer's account in relation to the cancelled pending games.
Common Draw Games - A game where more than one player is able to bet on the outcome of a specific draw, and the draw determines the results for all players (eg Toto Draw and common table roulette).
In the case of Common Draw games, draws will proceed even if you are not logged in. Therefore, all Games Bets that were placed successfully prior to connection loss will be honoured and will be settled (win or lose) in the usual manner. If you reconnect to the game before all Games Bets are settled, any remaining unsettled bets will be visible in the bet slip.
In the case of a connection loss in respect of either a Draw On Demand game or a Common Draw Game, you will be able to see your bet details via your Statement in the specific Game once you are reconnected.
9. PLAYING FOR REAL
To play the Games for real money, you must login to your account using your username and password, as required by the General Terms and Conditions.
10. BET LIMITS
Game betting limits are detailed in the help file for each game. See the Specific Game Betting Rules for each game (section 16 below).
11. PLAYING FOR FUN
To play the Games for fun, select the Play for Fun option. You will then be able to play with virtual money. All winnings or losses will also be virtual.
12. VOID BETS
In the unlikely event of a Games Bet being declared void, your original stake will be returned.
MALFUNCTION VOIDS ALL PAYS AND PLAY.
Any technical malfunction of any sort, including but not exclusively software, hardware or connection malfunction, will result in all affected Games Bets being declared void, irrespective of any indicative result.
We further reserve the right to declare a Games Bet to be void if;
- only partial or incorrect bet details are available;
- we have any suspicion that the customer is participating in fraud, collusion, money laundering or other illegal activities;
- we believe the customer to be under the age of 18 or below the legal age required for gambling in his or her jurisdiction;
- acceptance of the bet would exceed set game limits;
- the stake amount is not available in the customer's account;
- an error (human or otherwise) or system failure results in incorrect odds being used;
- technical faults such as communication failures, defects, interruptions, delays, viruses, denial of service attacks, or data corruption occur; or
- if a technical defect produces excessive or irregular winnings.
Should a bet be settled incorrectly due to error (human or otherwise) or system failure, the settlement will be deemed as invalid and will be reversed. Should the customer have insufficient funds in their account to allow this, the customer will be required to return the necessary amount to the Operator.
13. GAMES USE
The Games are to be used solely for personal entertainment. Any other use of the Games or any related elements (eg graphics, text, etc), including but not exclusively any business or professional use, is strictly prohibited and is a direct infringement of the proprietary and other rights of the Operator, who may take any legal action to enforce such rights.
If you have a complaint regarding the outcome of a bet on any Game, you should contact the Customer Service team within 72 hours via the email address, setting out your complaint in full, including detailed timings. The Operator will investigate the complaint using data from its own systems. You hereby agree that the ultimate decision in respect of the complaint rests with the Operator acting reasonably in the light of all the available evidence, and is final.
You hereby agree that you shall have no cause of action and you hereby waive any rights or claims against the software developer of the Games for any matter, cause or thing involving your participation in the Games or otherwise.
You hereby agree that you shall have no cause of action and you hereby waive any rights or claims against the Operator in respect of the use, misuse or abuse by you or by any third party of your account, or in respect of the conduct of other customers, or in respect of any technical faults or defects, including but not exclusively those set out in section 12 above.
Whilst the Operator will take reasonable steps to co-operate with a customer who wishes to self-exclude, the customer hereby agrees that the Operator will not be liable if a self-excluded customer gambles with another operator, or if the self-excluded customer continues to gamble with the Operator using accounts with different or rearranged registration details, or if the customer otherwise tries to evade the effect of the self-exclusion.
