2. REGISTRATION AND ACCOUNT CREATION
2.1 You need to make an account with us before you can bet, get any games, or play any games. You must be 18 or older to do this. You are only allowed one account at a time in your house. If you have more than one, those accounts will be closed and you won’t get the money from them. Don’t let anyone use your account without permission from Bodog.
2.2 We can decide to stop your account at any time. Any decisions we make about our software, games and accounts is final.
2.3 If you want an account, we need to know your name, address, birthday, email and phone number. We might also ask some security questions. After that we will send you an email to make sure it’s really you. Sometimes we might need more information from you if needed. This is so that we can make sure no one does anything wrong or illegal with the account.
2.5 We may use special services to make sure that your account info is real. These services check if you are following our rules and work with us to prevent fraud. They may look at your government ID and keep a record of it, too.
2.6 You can log into your account using your email address. Keep your email and password secret. We can turn off your account or password if we think you are not following the rules. You must make sure that no one else is using your account or email address, and you will be responsible for all things done with it even if you didn’t know about it.
2.7 If you don’t put money in, take money out, or play a game for 18 months, your account will be called “Dormant.” We will send you an email and call to tell you about the balance in your account. If nothing happens for 5 years, your account becomes “Abandoned” and all the money left behind goes to the Gaming Commission – except for some fees.
2.8 We may check your account to make sure you are following the rules and that no bad activity is happening. If any bad stuff is found, we might use money in your account to pay for it. But if it turns out you did not do anything wrong, we will give the money back.
2.9 It is your responsibility to keep your email address, account number and password safe. If you give this information away, it is still your responsibility for the things that happen. If anything bad happens because of using Bodog, Bodog will not be responsible for it.
3. USE OF THE WEBSITE AND SERVICES
3.1. Services Offered In Operator’s Discretion. Access to the Website is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Services we provide without notice. The Website is updated regularly, and may change at any time. You acknowledge and agree that the specific form and/or nature of the Website or Services may change from time to time without prior notice and we may cease providing the Services (or any specific features within the Services) to you or to users generally at our sole discretion, without prior notice to you. If the need arises, we may suspend access to the Website, or close it indefinitely. Any of the material on the Website may be out of date at any given time, and we are under no obligation to update such material. We will not be liable if for any reason the Website is unavailable at any time or for any period but this shall not, of itself, preclude us from returning to you any money that is properly due to you. We may terminate your Account, delete any content or information that you have posted on the Website, and/or prohibit you from using or accessing the Website or Service (or any portion, aspect or feature of the Service) for any reason, at any time in our sole discretion. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we shall have the right to reject any wager or withdraw any Game in our absolute discretion. We will not be liable for any loss whatsoever arising from the cancellation of any Game or sports wager, including any realizable or perceived loss, for whatever reason, and/or the chance to participate in our sportsbook, casino and/or poker system. This website is not affiliated with, nor endorsed by, the National Football League, the National Basketball League, the National Hockey League, Major League Baseball or any of these leagues’ member teams.
3.2. You can use the Services if you live in a place where it is allowed to bet on sports, download and play games, and join poker tournaments. You are responsible for getting access to the Website.
3.3. The Services are only for your own personal use and not for selling or trading with anyone else.
3.4. Access Disruptions. We are not responsible or liable in any way for any Internet disruptions or disconnections, and all risk and responsibility rests with you. In the case of a disconnection or interruption during a poker game, you will be awarded an additional 30 seconds to act. If you do not act in this additional 30 seconds, your hand will be folded. Extra time will only be awarded when players are disconnected from the Bodog Poker system. In the event of a system lag not attributed to us (regardless of the cause), if you do not act in the specified time period, the hand in question will be folded unless the hand in progress is checked to the player and no other action is required. In the event that the access disruption is due to a systems issue within the Bodog Poker system, the game will be restored as soon as possible and the game shall proceed. If restoration of the game is not possible, players will be refunded all bets from the disrupted hand.
4. RESPONSIBLE GAMING
4.1 No one under 18 can use this account. If there is an account used by someone under 18, any winnings it has will be taken away and the account closed.
4.2 The Website and the Services are for fun. We want players to be able to manage how much they play. If gambling is causing problems in your life, you can get help here.
4.3 We have ways for you to decide how much money you can put into the Website. You can set a limit on deposits each month. That means the same limit applies to all types of deposits. If you want to change or remove the limit, it will take 24 hours before it happens.
4.4. Account Closure due to Problem Gambling. You have the option of deactivating your Account if you believe you have a gambling problem. We honour all such directions immediately. Please note that when contacting Customer Service to request such an account closure, you must identify that you are requesting an Account closure due to a gambling problem. This is to ensure that such requests are distinguishable from temporary “cooling off” requests (see Section 4.5). If you request to have your Account closed as a consequence of a perceived gambling problem, please be advised that we cannot increase such limits or re-open another Account for you for at least six (6) months following the Account closure, and any request to re-open or re-register an Account must be made directly to the Commission.
4.5 You can turn off your Account for a while if you want to take a break. If you want to change your limits, you have to write it in an email or letter. We might also make you take a break if we think it is necessary.
5. INTEGRITY OF PLAY AND BETTING
5.1 If we think something bad is happening with one of our accounts, like fraud or money-laundering, we can close the account and tell the Gaming Commission. All money in that account will be gone.
5.2. Fraudulent Activity. If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that a player has engaged in fraudulent, unlawful, dishonest or improper activity (including, without limitation, the usage of a VPN, proxy or similar service that masks or manipulates the identification of your real location, or by otherwise providing false or misleading information, or by making bets, wagers or poker 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 both deposits and any winnings) shall be forfeited and we reserve the right to disclose information (including the identity of the player) to applicable parties including but not limited to; the Gaming 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.
5.3. Do not use any programs that give you an unfair advantage over other players. You cannot use computer software or things like websites or subscription services to get information on other players. If we find out you are using these types of programs, we will close your account and void any winnings.
5.4. No robots allowed on the website. We will make sure only real players can play. If we think a robot is playing, the account will be shut down and all money in the account will be taken away.
5.5. Collusion. Any players who gain, or attempt to gain an advantage by trading information about their cards, or attempt to take any unfair advantage by colluding with other players will be permanently banned from the Website. If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that such activity is occurring, the Accounts may, in our sole and absolute discretion, be disabled and all Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings) shall be forfeited. Rigorous examination of play by both manual and automated means will be employed to detect such behaviour and such monitoring will be active at all times. We will investigate all related player complaints in addition to proactively and randomly examining game plays and Accounts. Collusion includes, without limitation: sharing information about their cards, chip dumping, discussing a hand during play (both in client chat or externally), multiple players using a single Account, soft playing and chip transferring.
5.6. When playing cards, you must speak English, Spanish, or Portuguese. You cannot talk about what cards you have or what might happen. Do not use bad words when talking to other players or staff.
5.7. We don’t allow players to give money to each other. If we see this happening, we might take away the money and close your account.
5.8. Players that work together to get special prizes or money (called a syndicate) can only have one account. We might charge a fee and not give out any prizes if there are more than one account. If someone tries to cheat, they might lose all their money.
5.10. If we think that someone is taking advantage of a mistake or problem with our system, we will close their account and all the money in it will be gone. We might also stop them from playing. We might tell the police if it is bad enough.
5.11. Abuse of Bonus Programs. Bonus programs 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, depositing on top of an existing balance, or referring new accounts that they are using themselves. Sanctions may be in the form of increased rollover requirements or loss of bonus privileges altogether for the offending Account as well as any linked Accounts. We reserve the right to restrict eligibility for special offers and bonuses when necessary. This includes (but is not limited to) placing geographic restrictions on match bonuses due to bonus abuse. Please refer to the Help section for further information regarding additional details concerning the eligibility, conditions, terms and usage of bonuses offered.
5.12. If something wrong happens, like a mistake with a computer or a person, we can cancel any winnings that came from the mistake. All bets will be cancelled too.
5.13. If your game stops working, all of your bets and games will stay active until you start playing again. But if you don’t play within 60 days, the bets and games will be lost forever.

7. ACCOUNT DEPOSITS, REPAYMENTS AND FORFEITURE
7.1. You need money in your account to play the games. We won’t give you any money for playing, so you have to deposit some of your own money first. Your account can’t go into debt either.
7.2 To add money to your account, you have to fill out some forms with information about how you want to pay for it and then submit a request from the cashier page of your Account (“Deposit Request”).
7.3 We can decide how much money you can put into your account at once. If you want to change the amount, tell our Customer Services Team. We will let you know if we do not accept your request for more money. If accepted, the money should be in your account soon.

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 and payable immediately. You expressly acknowledge and agree that, in the event of non-payment of such debt, we may 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.
7.5. Withdrawals. To withdraw funds from your Account you will need to request a withdrawal from the Cashier page of your Account. You may request a withdrawal of any amount up to the full balance of your Account. If we are satisfied that you have complied with the Terms, all AML and fraud-screening requirements, and all rules relating to the Activities and any related bonuses, the payout shall be made to you. The manner in which the withdrawal is processed may be restricted, depending on the means by which the initial deposit(s) was/were made to the applicable Account. Without limiting the foregoing, we reserve the right to conclude your withdrawal request by an alternative method or process at our discretion. If, for whatever reason, a payout request cannot be approved, a Customer Services Representative will contact you.
