- Your Account is not a bank account and is therefore not insured, guaranteed, sponsored or otherwise protected by any deposit or banking insurance system or by any other similar insurance system. Any monies deposited with us in Your Account shall not attract any interest. Monies deposited with us are held under a normal bank account and/or escrow account in the name of HeavyChips or another HeavyChips company, which holds the monies in the account on trust for You and other persons entitled.

Account at any time provided that:
- all payments made into Your Account have been confirmed as cleared and none have been charged-back, reversed or otherwise cancelled;

- We will attempt to accommodate Your request regarding the payment method and currency of payment of Your withdrawal. This, however, cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, we may process and pay withdrawals in a different payment method than the one requested by You, such as through different payment providers, a bank draft or wire transfer (any charges associated with relevant payment methods are set out in the Withdrawal tab of the Website). Similarly, in certain cases, the currency of Your withdrawal may not be the currency in which Your deposit was made or that was otherwise requested by You and, in circumstances where we are required to convert Your deposits between different currencies, the conversion rate used by us is as stated in the Help tab of the Website.

The fee will be charged as long as the inactive account has positive balance or until such account will be reactivated. The Inactive Account Fee is subject to change from time to time.
- Maximum Winnings.

- Our maximum winnings for each Player in any consecutive 7 calendar days is 10,000 EUR or the currency equivalent (for the sake of clarity, in case the Player has won more than the maximum winning amount and/or within the period stated herein, the residual amount will be cancelled);
- It is the Player’s responsibility to follow up his/her number of bets, the total stakes invested or however placed, and maximum winnings he/she can gain within the period stated herein;
- The foregoing does not apply to winnings of progressive jackpots.
- Maximum Withdrawals. Unless specifically authorized by us in writing, Player may withdraw 10,000 EUR from his/her Account in every 30-day period. All other winnings will be paid in monthly instalments of 10,000 EUR every 30 days. The foregoing does not apply to withdrawals of progressive jackpots. Notwithstanding the maximum withdrawal amount as defined in this Clause, the maximum withdrawal amount is limited by the limitations set by the payment method chosen by the Player when placing a deposit.
- Withdrawals and refunds are effected within 3-5 business days, if practicable, after receipt of the request, if the Player successfully passed Checks if such are requested in line with these General Terms and subject to complying with anti-money laundering regulations. In case, if there is a large winning (5000 EUR or more) or jackpot winning, it may take longer to process the withdrawal request in order to verify the winning (with a third party where relevant) and to complete all required Checks.
- We reserve the right to delay and/or stop the processing of a withdrawal or refund until final approval has been received for any outstanding deposit transaction or in the event that Your original deposited funds are not received within 24 hours. If the original funds are not received within 24 hours all winnings will be cancelled.
- If You wish to participate in the Services, You must deposit monies into Your Account from an account or source of which you are the account holder.

- We reserve the right to:

- where it is not reasonably practicable to correct and re-settle under 19.2.1 above, to declare the bet void and return Your stake into Your Account; or
- in circumstances where the Error has resulted from a Prohibited Practice, to take the steps set out in paragraph 12.4.

We agree that we shall use all reasonable endeavours to detect any Errors and inform You of them as soon as reasonably practicable.

- RESPONSIBLE GAMING/GAMBLING
- For those customers who wish to restrict their gambling, we provide a voluntary self-exclusion policy, which enables You to close Your Account or restrict Your ability to place bets or game on the Website for a minimum period of six months. You can ask that the restriction lasts for a period of up to five years. Once Your Account has been self-excluded You will be unable to reactivate the Account under any circumstances until the expiry of the period chosen under this paragraph. At the expiry of the self-exclusion period You will be entitled to re-commence use of the Services by contacting Customer Services or by opening a new account.
- If You require any information relating to this facility please speak to Customer Services through the Help tab or view our Responsible Gaming section.
- We will use our reasonable endeavours to ensure compliance with self-exclusion. However, self-exclusion requires the joint commitment of both You and HeavyChips. During the self-exclusion period You must not attempt to try to open new accounts and You accept that we have no responsibility or liability whatsoever if You continue gambling and/or seek to use the Website and we fail to recognise or determine that You have requested self-exclusion in circumstances which are beyond our reasonable control including, but not limited to, You opening a new account, gambling in an LBO or over the telephone rather than over the internet or using a different name or address.
- HeavyChips is committed to supporting Responsible Gambling initiatives.
- Any self-exclusion implemented in terms of Clause 33.1 above are offered:
(a) For all the games offered by us; and
(b) Across all the means by which we provide the Services.
Since we require separate player registration, where we operate multiple brands (websites operated by us and/or our Group), we will ensure self-exclusion to be implemented to Your activity on the brand on which You have requested self-exclusion, and Your requested self-exclusion shall be applicable to that individual brand.
You are not entitled to open a new Account if You have had already an Account closed by us at any of the websites operated by us and/or our Group or at Your request under Paragraph 33 (Responsible Gaming/Gambling), though we do not take responsibility if You have attempted and succeeded to open a new Account due to circumstances mentioned in Clause 33.3.
- We will use our reasonable endeavours to ensure compliance with self-exclusion. However, self-exclusion requires the joint commitment of both You and us. During the self-exclusion period You must not attempt to try to open new accounts and You accept that we have no responsibility or liability whatsoever if You continue gambling and/or seek to use the Website and/or any of the websites operated by us and/or our Group, and we fail to recognise or determine that You have requested self-exclusion in circumstances which are beyond our reasonable control including, but not limited to, You opening a new account, using a different name or address, etc.
