7.4. Furthermore, if You attempt to open any additional, duplicate or multiple Member Accounts after Your original Member Account has been closed due to gambling addiction, any game participations undertaken with the additional, duplicate or multiple player accounts will be annulled and voided, all stakes wagered refunded and all winnings forfeited and seized.

8.3. Your failure to provide LeoVegas with true, complete and correct information or documentation required to fulfill LeoVegas’ compliance and regulatory obligations will result in the restriction, suspension or closure of Your Member Account and possibly, the submission of an SAR to the competent FIU. Game participations undertaken with the unverified account may be annulled and voided, stakes refunded, and all winnings seized. Any remaining credits in Your Member Account may only be payed-out in coordination with the competent FIU and/or prosecution, if the latter does not contradict, until the LeoVegas verification process is complete.

9.2. If You believe that Your login details have been disclosed to a third party, You should notify LeoVegas immediately to have Your login details reset. Unless the third party use of Your Member Account is caused by a culpable behaviour of LeoVegas, any use of Your Member Account will be deemed as Your own.
9.3. Additionally, should LeoVegas detect or suspect that any other person other than You, is using Your Member Account, LeoVegas reserves the right to suspend or close Your Member Account and retain any funds therein, if it is not sure, whether the pay-out-request originates from You or from a third, unauthorized person, in its absolute discretion.

10.3. The VIP level is personal to You and Your Member Account, and can in no way be transferred to other users, Member Accounts or third parties.
11.1. Any deposit You make into Your Member Account will be held for Your use until You place a bid for a bet, or accept a bet on the Website. LeoVegas will then hold such amount awaiting the outcome of the bet.
11.2. The amount You have staked which represents Your current exposure at any time is referred to as the “Total Bet”, or any other equivalent term as described in the Game and/or Game Rules from time to time. The total balance in Your Member Account, less the Total Bet, is the remaining amount of money in Your Member Account which has not yet been used for a bet and is referred to as Your "Available to Bet" balance. This will determine Your betting limit.
11.3. LeoVegas will calculate Your Available to Bet balance, from time to time, as well as settling other bets made by You with other users through Your participation in the Games.

LeoVegas does not grant any credit for the use of its services and will not give You any credit for a participation in any Game.
11.8. Information required to deposit funds into Your Member Account, can be found under “My Account” and “Deposit” pages of the Website.

11.9. Depending on the method selected for deposits, such deposits can incur charges. For current fees regarding depositing funds, see "My Account" and "Deposit" for each deposit method. Your bank or other payment service provider may independently charge You for bank wire transfers and other methods of payment.
11.10. All transactions to and from the player account have to be undertaken in Euros. The balances in the player accounts always have to be displayed in Euros and euro-Cents. Therefore, LeoVegas only accepts payments made in Euros.

12.9. When You place a bet on the Website and Games, You acknowledge that You have read, understood and agree to these T&Cs and Game Rules.

If the irregularity is confirmed, then LeoVegas retains the right to void any related bets and resultant winnings, if any.
12.11. If bets, which exceed any stipulated limits, are erroneously accepted by LeoVegas, the excess amount will be disregarded, and the bet amount placed will be revised accordingly and the difference paid back to the party and counterparty of the bet.
12.12. Communication errors do occasionally happen. Bets are confirmed only when received on LeoVegas servers in Malta. Should there be a break in communication after You offer a bet, and such bet is received by LeoVegas servers prior to the communication break, such bet will still be considered valid. You will be informed that Your bet has been accepted once communication is re-established at which time the bet may have been already utilised. You will receive information about the outcome of the bet placed. If the bet offer is not received at LeoVegas servers then it will not stand, and the bet amount will not have been taken from Your Member Account.
12.13. If a Game is started but fails or produces an inexact result due to a breakdown of the Game account management software and/or of the Game and/or of the random number generator, all the stakes and wins coming from that Game will be cancelled and the Game account balance will be restored to its position prior to the start of the Game. In this case the funds You bet will be returned to Your Member Account.

12.16. In the event of software or RNG malfunctioning, the bet will be considered null and void and the amount of the stake will be returned to Your Member Account.
12.17. LeoVegas reserves the right to change the prize of a promotion, if it cannot be delivered due to unforeseen circumstances or force majeure. In this case, LeoVegas shall ensure that You are placed in at least the same, if not in a better position.

Such amount will remain the property of LeoVegas and the amount will be transferred from Your Member Account back to LeoVegas. If You withdraw the funds erroneously transferred to You before LeoVegas becomes aware of such error, the amount erroneously paid will constitute a civil debt owed by You to LeoVegas in terms of applicable law. If you have already re-wagered such winnings as stakes prior to LeoVegas becoming aware of this mistake, then such game participations will be annulled and voided, such stakes be refunded to Your Member Account and any winnings be seized again, unless there are sufficient funds in Your Member Account so that the winnings erroneously credited to Your Member Account may be deducted again from Your Member Account without the latter having a negative balance afterwards.

Withdrawals from preliminary Member Accounts (with a maximum duration of 30 days and allowing maximum stakes of EUR 150) are prohibited.
16.5. LeoVegas will credit Your Member Account back using the same method used to deposit funds in the Member Account, whenever this is possible.

16.9. In the case of withdrawal requests pertaining to funds which have never been used for wagering, LeoVegas will only remit Your funds when the extended due diligence procedure has been successfully carried out. LeoVegas reserves the right to apply a 5% charge on withdrawals of a minimum amount of €10 (in words: ten euros) or equivalent, if such amount has not been used at least once for gambling on the Website, unless you completely close Your Member Account and withdraw the complete remaining balance in your Member Account, in which case no deductions will be applied. In any case, the payout will take place with the description “unused deposits” as reason for the transaction. If a withdrawal request covers winnings and unused deposits, then this will be clarified in the description of the reason for the transaction and the respective amounts will be specified accordingly.
17.1. If You would like to close Your account, You must send an email notifying LeoVegas on the Customer Support Contact as indicated in Section 2.1 of these T&Cs.

17.2. The method of repayment will be the method, which You have used at last for your deposits. If this method does not work or may not be used for withdrawals, then the payment method will be used, which you have used prior to the payment method used at last and so on.
17.3. LeoVegas reserves the right to close Your Member Account and to refund You the available balance, at LeoVegas’s absolute discretion and without any obligation to state a reason or give prior notice.

18.2. According to the new Inter-State-Treaty on Gambling entering into force on 1st of July 2021 in Germany, we have to verify the identity of players annually. It is impermissible to allow a game participation, if the last identity verification is longer ago than twelve months. However, withdrawals shall remain possible, even, if the last identity verification is longer ago than twelve months. Therefore, we will set inactive all Member Accounts of players after the expiry of twelve months since the last identity verification, until the identity of such players may be re-verified, which will regularly require Your cooperation.
18.3. LeoVegas shall notify You at least thirty (30) days before Your Member Account is due to become inactive. In such case, You will have the option to withdraw Your funds, subject to any procedures for withdrawal set out herein and in accordance with laws and regulations, and to close your account.
18.4. Where Your Member Account becomes inactive, LeoVegas may elect to charge a fee for inactivity or to close Your Member Account. The latter will regularly take place at the latest twelve months after the becoming inactive of your Member Account. Fees may only be charged to an inactive Member Account as long as that Member Account does not go into a negative balance.
18.5. Where LeoVegas elects to charge an inactivity fee, such fee shall be a monthly administrative fee of €5 (in words: five euros).
18.6. Where LeoVegas elects to close Your Member Account, LeoVegas shall, without prejudice to any AML legislation, endeavour to refund Your remaining balance, by remitting the funds directly or by contacting You using the information at LeoVegas’ disposal.
18.7.

We will request the NGO to provide You with a donation receipt.

19.1. You may, at Your own discretion, choose to self-exclude Yourself from playing any Games on the Website (either for 24 hours, for a definite or for an indefinite period of time or permanently). In order to apply the 24 hours playing break, You may either click on the panic button, which is available on each side, where a game participation is possible, or You may contact LeoVegas on the Customer Support Contact as outlined in Section 2.1 of these T&Cs. In order to block Your Member Account for a definite or indefinite period of time or permanently, You need to go to Your Member Account profile and choose “Self-Exclusion” and complete the form or contact LeoVegas on the Customer Support Contact. We will inform you in text form (via email) that we have undertaken the self-exclusion and when it has become valid.
19.2. The playing break of 24 hours expires automatically. No further actions from Your side are required for a cancellation of this 24 hours playing break. You may use Your Member Account normally again after the expiry of 24 hours after Your use of the panic button or the submission of Your 24 hours playing break-request to the Customer Support Contact. During the 24 hours playing break, no game participation is possible. There is no possibility to cancel the playing break prior to the expiry of the 24 hours. Once Your Member Account is re-opened in accordance with the procedure described herein, You shall be responsible for any losses that ensue thereafter as a result of Your continued use of Your Member Account and shall in no case be refunded by LeoVegas.
19.3. Should you wish to reopen your Member Account during a definite exclusion, you will be able to do so following a 1 (one) day cool-off period before You may resume to use the Games and Website. Should you wish to reopen your account during an indefinite exclusion, you will be able to do so following a 7 (seven) day cool-off period before You may resume to use the Games and Website. In both cases, you are required to contact LeoVegas on our Customer Support Contact to make the request. Once Your Member Account is re-opened in accordance with the procedure described herein, You shall be responsible for any losses that ensue thereafter as a result of Your continued use of Your Member Account and shall in no case be refunded by LeoVegas.
19.4. A permanently excluded account cannot be reopened. No Member Accounts may be reopened or reactivated in cases of permanent exclusions.
19.5. Member Accounts closed for gambling addiction reasons shall be closed for a minimum of 5 (five) years and may only be reopened or re-activated when You make a positive request to LeoVegas for Your account to be reopened after the 5 (five) year period has elapsed. Should You not make such a request Your account shall remain closed.
19.6. LeoVegas reserves the right to alter the aforementioned self-exclusion system at any time, e. g. due to new regulatory requirements applying to LeoVegas due to new licenses for one of the jurisdictions, such as the new German licenses, which shall be granted according to the new ISTG 2021, which shall enter into force on 1st of July 2021. The latter will demand a connection to and participation in the German central blocking-system “OASIS”. OASIS will not allow any longer allow self-exclusions for definite or indefinite period of times, but only permanent self-exclusions for regularly at least 365 days, unless You apply for a shorter exclusion-period, which, however, must not be shorter than at least three months. The ISTG 2021 also requests the undertaking of third-party-exclusions for Member Accounts of players, about whom LeoVegas knows or has to assume due to the perception of its personnel, due to notices of third parties or due to other factual indications that the players are at risk to become gambling addicted or overindebted, cannot comply with their financial obligations or wager stakes which are disproportionate to their income or assets. LeoVegas reserves the right decide to undertake such third-party-blockings even prior to the entering into force of the ISTG 2021 for players from Germany. Such third-party-blockings will then always last for at least one year. Before we decide to undertake such a third-party-blocking, we will grant You the possibility to make a statement thereon. If we decide – after a consideration of Your statement – to undertake the third-party-blocking, then we will inform You accordingly and on the point of time, when the third-party-blocking has become valid. A third-party-blocking will not expire automatically, but rather only upon Your written cancellation application. You may submit such a written application for a cancellation of the third-party-blocking at the earliest after the expiry of three months since the validity date of the blocking. The cancellation will become valid at the earliest after the expiry of one months since the receipt of the cancellation application, however, not prior to the expiry of 365 days since the validity date of the third-party-blocking. If the permanent third-party-exclusion is cancelled, You shall be responsible for any losses that ensue thereafter as a result of Your continued use of Your Member Account and shall in no case be refunded by LeoVegas.
19.7. You may also choose to impose a responsible gaming limit (deposit limit / wager limit / loss limit / time per session limit) on a daily/weekly/monthly basis, on Your Member Account. A day starts at 00:00 UTC and ends at 23.59 UTC. A calendar week begins at 00.00 UTC every Monday morning and runs until 23.59 UTC on the Sunday of that given week. A month starts at 00.00 UTC on the 1st and will run until 23.59 UTC on the last day of the month (28/29th, 30th or 31st).
19.8. For preliminary Member Accounts with a maximum duration of 30 days, for which you have only submitted a copy of your ID-card/passport/residence-permit, but for which Your identity has not yet been fully verified, a mandatory stake limit of EUR 150 applies, which may not be altered. Withdrawals are prohibited with preliminary Member Accounts.
19.9. In order to set a responsible gaming limit, You must log in to Your Member Account and set or manage Your responsible gaming limits on Your Member Account. The monthly deposit limit must not exceed EUR 1000. If You decide to impose stricter limits, this update will occur immediately. If you choose to increase your limits (make them more lenient) this update will occur following a cool-off period of seven (7) days. Any gaming limit You choose to impose on Your Member Account on the Website will not be applied across Your other (if any) Member Accounts opened on the other different branded websites owned by different companies belonging to the LeoVegas Mobile Gaming Group, and will apply solely to the Member Account of this Website and of such other websites also operated by the World of Sportsbetting Ltd. An exception to this principle rule will apply from 1st of July 2021 onwards for the monthly deposit limit of EUR 1,000. From then on, this limit will apply across all operators. There will be a central limit file ensuring that players may only deposit maximum EUR 1000 across all gambling operators.
