Accounts that do not register a valid deposit within 90 days of registration, will also be blocked and unblocked only after funds have been deposited to the account.

3. Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Policy and protocol

Sportbet prohibits and actively prevents money laundering and any activity that could facilitate money laundering or the funding of terrorist and/or criminal activities. We strive to comply with all applicable requirements under the Isle of Man legislation in which Sportbet operates, to prevent any kind of criminal activity to occur through our platform.

Sportbet is fully committed to be constantly vigilant to prevent money laundering in order to minimize and manage its legal risk, regulatory risk and reputational risk. It is also committed to its social duty to prevent serious crime and not to allow its systems to be abused in promotion of these crimes. Therefore, our staff will be regularly trained in the following topics:

  • Customer verification process to ensure age minimum and avoid identify theft or forgery.
  • Assurance of Card Data.
  • Recognizing suspicious deposit and withdrawal patterns.
  • Account association surveys and multiple account creation models.
  • Identifying unusual betting patterns.

Our customers are not permitted to act on behalf of another person or third party; to deposit money originating from criminal activity; to deposit money through a credit card which a customer is not authorized to use, or knowingly receiving money from such card or in any other manner colluding with a third party to so do; or to use in any manner whatsoever their player account or that of third parties for money laundering or any other illegal purpose.

In the event that it is determined that your Account has been involved in any of the above, we shall be entitled to use any and all money to the credit of your Account to meet any costs, expenses or liabilities reasonably incurred in conducting such investigation.  We will refund to your Account any monies if the inquiry is subsequently concluded in your favor.

Player funds must be withdrawn via the same processing method the account was funded through. Net winnings may be cashed out through other available methods as long as the customer is able to prove ownership of the receiving account. 

We will refrain from engaging in any business relationship or from processing any transaction when the initial KYC process is not approved, or when the customer’s due diligence does not fulfill our requirements.

All Company's policies, procedures and internal controls are designed to ensure compliance with all applicable laws, rules and regulations relevant to the Company's operations and will be evaluated and updated as required to ensure appropriate policies, procedures and internal controls are in place.


4. Know Your Customer (KYC) Policy and PROTOCOL

We reserve the right to use third party verification services to authenticate your account information and identity, and to conduct any necessary checks relating to potential fraud or to ensure compliance with our Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Policy and Protocol, and you expressly acknowledge and agree that we may confirm the accuracy of any information you submit against global watch-lists, or through software of worldwide fraud detection and negative databases.  Without limiting the generality of the forging, you expressly acknowledge and agree that we may use personal information provided by you in order to conduct appropriate anti-fraud checks and personal information that you provide may be disclosed to a credit reference or fraud prevention agency, which may keep a record of that information.

The website’s KYC procedures are part of the initial customer registration process and function on an ongoing basis. As a user’s risk profile can change over time, we reserve the right to carry out KYC checks on re-activated players, player’s updated information, and players in which last documentation provided has already expired.

5. ACCOUNT DEPOSITS, CHARGEBACKS, REFUNDS AND FORFEITURE

To deposit funds in your Account you must supply information as required, which will depend upon the method of payment that you select for making the deposit and your personal risk profile.

If you choose to place any wagers, your money will be deposited with us and held by us or the third party provider of the service, and pending to the outcome of the relevant event, or game.  

We reserve the right to place a limit on the amount of funds that you will be able to deposit at any time at a level that we may determine at our sole discretion.  You may request that this deposit limit be modified by contacting our Customer Services Team but it will be raised at our discretion.

Neither we nor any of our service providers shall be under any obligation to accept your Deposit Request and we shall notify you if your Deposit Request is rejected. If your Deposit Request is accepted, we shall ensure that funds equal to those specified in your Deposit Request are credited to your Account within a reasonable period of time.

Any deposits accepted are required to complete at least a ONE time rollover of the deposited amount. Rollover or play through amounts are based on each wager’s true amount, which is the lesser amount between the risk and the win for each selection. We reserve the right to reverse fees covered on deposits, without prior notice, if little or no play is made between deposits and redemptions (rollover not met), or minimum deposit amounts are not respected.

If any deposit is charged back, or is otherwise uncollectible for any reason, any and all winnings generated from play or bets conducted in such Account from the time of the applicable deposit until its reversal or un-collectability shall be invalidated, forfeited and deducted from your Account balance.  In addition, the amount of the initial failed deposit will be invalidated, forfeited and deducted from the Account balance.  In the event that, following such deductions, your Account balance is in a negative balance, you expressly acknowledge and agree that such negative balance shall constitutes an incontestable debt payable by you to us, due to be paid immediately. You expressly acknowledge and agree that, in the event another account is created or found to be related to you, we are entitled to deduct any owed balances and reserve the right to permanently close the account. A non-payment of such debt allows us to assign such debt to one or more collections agencies, who shall have the legal right to pursue such assigned debt using any or all available legal remedies.  Note that following the assignment of such debt to a collections agency, the resolution of such debt and any legal processes associated therewith are not within our control and must be negotiated or resolved directly with such collections agency.

Under no circumstances a player will be extended any type of credit. You may not play or participate in any Activities unless and until you have deposited sufficient funds into your Account. We do not allow Accounts to become overdrawn.

6. ACCOUNT BONUSES AND PAYOUTS

Management reserves the right to request for full KYC prior granting a bonus to a player when deemed necessary. Failing to provide valid and legitimate documents could lead to account closure and the forfeiture of any/all winnings and bonuses.

Reward programs, casino and horseracing bonuses, seasonal or temporary promotions and any other type of free money offer, are intended for recreational bettors only.  Professional players or players considered, in our sole discretion, to be abusing the bonus system by any means, may have bonuses revoked and be subject to further sanctions.  Bonus abuse may be defined as, but not restricted to, clients cashing out for the purpose of redepositing in new accounts, depositing on top of an existing balance, players syndicates working together to receive higher bonuses, or referring new accounts that they are using themselves, among others.

Sanctions for bonus abusers may be in the form of loss of rewards and promotions privileges altogether for the offending Account as well as any linked Accounts. Bonuses will be removed from all accounts deemed to be from one entity.

7. INTEGRITY OF PLAY, BETTING & ERRORS

All wagers are final once accepted by Sportbet and confirmed by the player. Members are responsible for checking all of their sports bets, and horse wagers in the review bets section. No Internet wager claims will be accepted without a ticket number.

All actions on the Website must be executed by players via the supplied user interface.  We will take any measures necessary to ensure that all robot software or programs designed to simulate real player play are detected and prevented from accessing the Website. Any account associated with such activity will be subject to review and possible termination.  If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that an Account is employing such software, the Account will be disabled and all Account balances (including deposits and any winnings) shall be forfeited.

If we have reasonable cause to believe that criminal or other suspicious activities are occurring through one or more Accounts (including, without limitation, a suspicion of attempted money-laundering or fraud), we expressly reserve the right to close such Account(s) and/or report such activity to the Gambling Supervision Commission and/or such other applicable regulatory bodies or services.  All Account balances (including deposits and any winnings) shall be forfeited.

If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that a player has engaged in fraudulent, unlawful, dishonest or improper activity, including, but not limited to providing false or misleading information, chip dumping, professional card counting, pool manipulation attempts in horseracing, or by making bets, wagers or casino play through a third party or on behalf of a third party, we reserve the right to immediately terminate or deny a player access to their Account. In such event, all Account balances, including deposits and any winnings, shall be forfeited and we reserve the right to disclose information, including identity of the player, to applicable parties including but not limited to; the Gambling Supervision Commission, banks, credit card companies and/or any person or entity that has the legal right to such information, and/or taking legal action against such player.

A player or group of players working together in any fashion (also known as a "syndicate"), to receive either higher winnings or bonuses or otherwise, are prohibited. Any redundant Accounts will be consolidated into one Account and an administration fee or negative outstanding balances may be charged, and payouts refused for each redundant Account in our sole discretion. All wagering transactions in redundant Accounts are subject to reversal in our sole discretion.  We also reserve the right to forfeit any wager placed in an attempt to defraud the house of any bonus monies, whether a player does this on their own or in collusion with other players or other sportsbooks.

We are committed to ensuring the integrity of all sports and to participating in efforts to identify and eradicate match fixing. As such, notwithstanding any other term of this Agreement, or any provision of the applicable Privacy Policy, by placing a bet or wager on the Website, you expressly acknowledge and agree that we at all times reserve the right in our sole discretion to report Irregular Betting Activity to such sports federations, regulators, agencies, commissions or associations (or their respective agents) as we deem appropriate ("Regulatory Bodies"), in order to enable identification of irregular activity and to support the appropriate investigations. "Irregular Betting Activity" means activity that, in our sole assessment, deviates from expected betting patterns, and includes, without limitation: (i) an unusual and significant number of bets originating from the same geographic region or through linked accounts; (ii) a bettor continuing to place bets at any price in the face of a steady reduction in the applicable odds; and/or (iii) any other indicator or pattern assessed by us as indicative of potential match fixing. We shall use reasonable commercial measures to ensure that any information provided to Regulatory Bodies pursuant to this provision is subject to reasonable contractual non-disclosure provisions, and that all information or documentation shall be destroyed by such Regulatory Bodies when it is no longer relevant in connection with any ongoing investigation, enquiry or disciplinary process.

If we determine that an Account sought to, or actually did exploit any hardware or software error, malfunction, "bug" or other vulnerability, we shall immediately close such Account and all balances, including deposits and any winnings, will be immediately forfeited.  In such event, we expressly reserve the right to initiate civil legal proceedings and report such activities to authorities in support of criminal investigations and charge, as appropriate.

Immediately upon discovery, wagers placed on an event with an obvious erroneous line, will be cancelled or voided. It is our sole discretion regarding the partial/complete voiding of parlays, teasers, and IF wagers when a play includes a selection with a line error. Line errors include, but are not limited to, backwards lines, price errors; typos, misspellings or incorrect wordings that affect the essence of the line intended; incorrect team/players listed in match ups, etc.

If a wager with an erroneous line is not voided before the game/play begins, Management reserves the right to remedy the odds to a fair market price which would have been available at the time the wager was placed. This price remedy may be applied during or after an event. Only the odds will be corrected on an erroneous line; the risk amount, applicable spread and total will always remain unchanged. Repeat offenders will not be tolerated and could end up being banned from playing on the website.

Any wagering matchup listed with erroneous wording that makes it possible for neither option to win, will be automatically cancelled when discovered. Matchup lines in which both options can be winners simultaneously will be cancelled as well.

At managerial discretion, correlated plays will be voided or split into separate straight wagers with the risk amount divided equally. Plays on correlated events include: multiple selections on the same team/player in the same event, multiple selections against the same team/player in the same event, or any other combination where one event directly affects further selections in the play, including Live In-Play wagers.

Start dates and times displayed on our website are a reference only and are not guaranteed to be accurate. It is the sole responsibility of the player to ensure and verify that such details are correct prior placing their wager(s).

Most events are graded immediately upon completion. Other events require extensive research and language translation to determine a final score. Use Live Help to report any score of an event you need to have graded. Please include a link or source of the score so we can process your wager(s) immediately. Please note we only use official sites for grading purposes.

If a customer believes there has been an error on the grade/scoring of any of the tickets posted in his/her account, the player must submit the request of revision with our Customer Service Staff via phone Service, chat or email within the same week or a maximum of 7 days of the conclusion of the event in question. Claims submitted after that period will not be considered.

Sportbet reserves the right to correct grading errors at any time. If an account reaches a negative balance due to the re-grade of an event, all in-progress pending wagers will stand and be honored. Since winning wagers in this instance will be honored, immediate settlement of losing wagers is also expected.

We reserve the right to reverse the incorrect application of funds into an account due to human or system/software error. Funds not intended to be credited into an account, will be reverted upon discovery.

Customers are responsible for settling all negative balances, regardless of the reason for it becoming negative. “Ignorance”, “I wouldn’t have made that last bet if I knew my balance would have been negative“, or “It’s not my fault the wager was graded wrong“, will not be accepted as excuses for non-settlement of negative balances. Any account with evidence of being related to another account with a negative balance, could be charged for the amount owed and have high risk deposit methods blocked.

Sportbet reserves the right to void any bets that are not in progress, retroactively from the last wager entered, until a player balance is no longer negative. Players will be notified via e-mail prior to an event starting of any such decisions.

We reserve the right to void any winnings that were obtained as a result of hardware/software error, malfunction or human error. In the event of any such malfunction or error, all wagers will be voided. 

8. BETTING LIMITS AND MAXIMUM PAYOUTS

Sports wagers can be placed online in the amount of $0.50 and up to $5,000. All payout charts for all exotic wagers as parlays, multichance parlays, progressive parlays, teasers, multichance teasers, progressive parlays, pleasers, multichance NFL pleasers, and progressive pleasers information is available in the betting pages at the time of placing a wager.

The betting minimum and maximum amounts as well as the pay tables for each casino game is found in their game rules pages. By playing the casino games available on the website, the customer acknowledges all payout charts pertaining to the games played in the account.

The maximum payout amount for any type of sports or casino wager is $250,000.

9. RESPONSIBLE GAMING & SELF EXCLUSION

Online gaming is fun, exciting, entertaining and can be lucrative. At the same time it can be addictive, which is why Sportbet works actively to prevent problems related to gambling, as well as promoting the awareness of problem gambling and improving prevention, intervention, and treatment. We are committed to endorsing responsible gaming to our customers.

Most people who gamble do so safely most of the time. But gambling can be harmful for some, including excessive play due to inexperience or binge gambling, periods of loss of control and more seriously gambling addiction. Players that lose control over their gambling risk not only their financial situation; it can also affect their family with adverse consequences. Players must therefore be made aware of the risks of online gambling.

Proactively interacting early enough and in the right way, can help someone keep control of their gambling and continue as a customer instead of them choosing to opt for a self-exclusion or closing their account entirely. In the long term this approach is more sustainable.

We have provided links on all of our website pages to:

Our approach to responsible gambling includes:

  • Preventing underage gambling.
  • Undertaking ethical and responsible marketing and advertising.
  • Supporting research, education, and treatment of problem gamblers.
  • Encouraging players to gamble responsibly.
  • Providing customers with the tools to gamble responsibly and provide mechanisms to control and address problem gambling.

Financial Limits.  
Our software incorporates features that make it possible for the gaming operator to allow end-users to limit their gambling by setting a betting ceiling or by disabling certain features (such as autoplay).

We strive to minimize the damage and problems that can arise as a result of gambling addiction by developing responsible gambling and training programs for company employees and by offering help line services and personal advice services.

You will have the ability to:

  • Choose not to receive promotional emails or opt in or opt out of any marketing emails, phone calls, text messages or mail by changing your Notification Settings under the My Account section.  
  • Modify your account or set a maximum betting limit or deposit limit if appropriate.
  • Self-limit your participation by setting a limit on the time you spend on our website. Time Limits.
    You can set time limits on your account which provides that a certain period of time must expire between two gaming sessions. You can make this change under account setting, under My Account. by emailing help@sportbet.com.

At the start of a gaming session, you will have the opportunity to set a voluntary time and/or spend for that session. Time outs can be requested for periods of:

  • 24 hours;
  • One week;
  • One month;
  • Such other period as you may reasonably request, up to a maximum of 6 weeks.

Time-Outs.
If you want to take a short break from betting and gaming with us, you can do so by taking a Time-Out for a period of 24 hours, 48 hours, 7 days, or 30 days.

Once you begin your Time-Out, you will not be able to use your account for betting and gaming, although you will still be able to login to withdraw any remaining balance. It will not be possible to reactivate your account until your chosen Time-Out period has ended.

If you feel you are at risk of developing a gambling problem or believe you currently have a gambling problem, you should use Self-Exclusion (below).

To take a Time Out, please go to My account setting and choose your time-out period.

Self Exclusion.
We provide a self-exclusion facility to help customers who feel that they have developed a gambling problem. Upon request, we will exclude the customer from play on the website by suspending their account for periods of 6 months, permanently, or for any other period specified by the customer. Self-exclusion can be made by changing your account settings under My Account. . We may retain personal data as necessary to implement the facility as effectively as possible, including for example name, address, and credit/debit card details.

We will take all reasonable steps to prevent excluded customers from reactivating their account or opening a new account whilst within the period of exclusion. During the period of exclusion, the customer must not attempt to reopen their account, or try to open a new account. We shall not be held liable if the customer circumvents our self-exclusion procedures and continues to use the services, or if the customer continues to gamble with any third party.

We will take all reasonable steps to prevent any marketing material being sent to a self-excluded customer. We will take steps to remove the name and details of a self-excluded individual from any marketing databases used by us, or any group company, (or otherwise flag that person as an individual to whom marketing material must not be sent), within two days of receiving the completed self-exclusion notification.

We will close the customer account of an individual who has self-excluded and return any funds held in the customer account. It is not sufficient to prevent an individual from withdrawing funds from their customer account whilst still accepting wagers from them.

The following procedures are in place to ensure that an individual who has self-excluded cannot gain access to gambling:

  • A register of those excluded with appropriate records (name, address, other details, and any membership or account details that may be held by us).
  • A record of the card numbers to be excluded.
  • Staff training to ensure that staff are able to administer effectively the systems; and
  • The removal of access from those persons found to have gambled or who have attempted to gamble on the facilities.

We will alert the individual who is self-excluding to counselling and support services available. All staff who are involved in direct customer service will be made aware of the self-exclusion system in place, to direct that individual to an immediate point of contact with whom to complete that process.

Customers who opt to self-exclude will be encouraged to consider extending their self-exclusion to other remote gambling operators currently used by the customer.

The Self Exclusion Procedure.
To action the self-exclusion procedure, customers must activate the Self Exclusion option under My Account settings or contact our customer service department via email or phone, stating if they require:

  • A weekly loss limit in Sportsbook (for the purposes of loss limit, week extends from Monday 00:00 to Sunday 23:59 ET). Customers may request to reduce their loss limit at any time. Customers may request to increase their loss limits or to terminate their loss limit, 7 days after their last loss limit request.
  • Self-exclusion from Casino products (Casino, Live Dealer), or for a predefined period of time or lifetime. Once a limit has been set, it cannot be reversed. Lifetime exclusion is irreversible.
  • Any other combination.

A player has at any point after opening an account, the right to be able to impose restrictions on their play. A player has a number of options open to them including the ability to do the following:

  • Impose a maximum stake or bet size per bet.
  • Impose a lowered daily, weekly or monthly deposit limit.
  • Impose maximum stakes or bets in any period (not being less than 7 days).
  • No limits can be increased without 7 days' notice.

We will advise customers who are self-excluding that there is software available to completely block individual computers from accessing gambling internet sites available at:

We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that:

  • Any self-exclusion may, upon request, be extended for one or more further periods of at least 6 months.
  • The self-exclusion arrangements give customers the option of selecting a self-exclusion period of up to five years.
  • A customer who has decided to enter a self-exclusion agreement is given the opportunity to do so immediately without any cooling off period. However, if the customer wishes to consider the self-exclusion further the customer may return at a later date to enter into self-exclusion.
  • At the end of the period chosen by the customer, self-exclusion remains in place, indefinitely, unless the customer takes positive action to gamble again.
  • Where a customer chooses not to review, and makes a positive request to begin gambling again, after the end of their initial self-exclusion period, the request will be processed 24 hours after the request in order to allow time to reconsider before being allowed to access gambling facilities. Contact to re-engage must be made via phone, after submitting a formal request via email; and
  • Notwithstanding the expiry of the period of self-exclusion chosen by a customer, no marketing material should be sent to them unless and until they have asked for or agreed to accept such material.

Identifying Problem Gambling.
We take our social responsibilities seriously and are committed to ensuring that our customers enjoy their online gambling experience responsibly. It is important to monitor gambling activities and be able to maintain control of gambling habits.

If you are concerned about yours or a friend or family member's gambling habits, then the following questions can be considered:

  • Does gambling interfere with you attending work or college?
  • Do you gamble to escape from problems in your life (boredom, unhappy home life etc.)?
  • Do you gamble alone or for long periods of time?
  • If you run out of money when you are gambling do you feel lost and in despair, and want to find money to gamble again as soon as possible?
  • After losing, do you feel that you must try to win back your losses as soon as possible?
  • Have you lied, stolen, or borrowed money in order to gamble?
  • Have you lied to cover up the amount of money or time you have spent gambling?
  • Do you gamble until you have no money left?
  • Are you in debt because of gambling?
  • Have others criticized you for your gambling habits?
  • Are you reluctant to spend gambling money on anything else?
  • Have you lost interest in your family, friends, or other pastimes due to gambling?
  • Do you put gambling before your family and friends?
  • Do arguments, frustrations or disappointments make you want to gamble more?
  • Do you feel depressed or suicidal because of your gambling?

The more questions answered "yes" to, the more likely it is that you are having difficulties with your gambling and that you may have a gambling problem. We recommend that you contact one of the organizations below:

We are committed to supporting research, education and treatment of problem gamblers, and will make an annual contribution to one or more organization(s) which between them research into the prevention and treatment of gambling related harm, develop harm prevention approaches and identify and fund treatment to those harmed by gambling.
