Inactive: A Player’s Account will automatically be classified as inactive if no log-in and/or log-out has occurred on the Player’s Account during a period exceeding twelve (12) consecutive months ("Inactive").

3. DEPOSITS AND WAGERS
3.1 The Gaming Operator does not accept cash payments to the Player’s Account. Deposits can only be made via the Site. Available payment methods, associated fees and requirements are listed in Section 22. Detailed information concerning the payment methods is available on the Site.
3.2 The currency of the Player’s Account is decided upon registration. The Gaming Operator accept payments made in EUR, SEK and NOK.
3.3 A Player may access its Player's Account immediately upon affecting the deposit and the payment supplier's confirmation that the transaction has been affected. A Player may place wagers as soon as the Player has access to the funds on the Player's Account. All deposits are made in real-time and if completed successfully will be credited to the Player's Account instantly. All deposits are irreversible.
3.4 A wager can only be placed over the internet. Gaming Operator will not accept a wager from a Player unless there are sufficient funds in the Player’s account to cover the amount of the wager. Gaming Operator reserves the right to refuse or limit any wager. Gaming Operator will not grant a Player any credit and the Player may not use any amounts credited in error for the purpose of placing a wager. Player shall not treat the Gaming Operator as a financial institution. Neither deposits nor winnings are interest-bearing, i.e. the Player will not receive any interest on the balance on the Player’s account. Players are not entitled to make any transfers between Players or between different Player’s Accounts.
3.5 Deposits made to a Player’s Account must be used as wagers in games on the Site. A deposit must be wagered at least once before a withdrawal can be initiated. All wagers are binding for the Player when made and cannot be cancelled. If a wager is placed or a hand is played using the username and password of a Player it will be considered to have been made by that Player and therefore valid.
3.6 The Gaming Operator endeavours wherever possible to ensure the full protection of all Players and their wagers. However, there are certain events that are beyond the Gaming Operator's control and the Player acknowledges that the games are played over Internet, and, in the case of mobile devices, over the cellular mobile telephone networks. These are communication mediums that are known to be imperfect. If a Player has wagered on a game, but has not started the game when disconnected through a technical malfunction, the game will not take place. If the Player has wagered and has started the game when disconnected the game will be recorded on the game servers and the wager will stand and the outcome will be reflected in the Player's Account status and, if the Player wins, the amount will be credited to the Player's Account. The Player understands that in the event of disconnection the records stored on the game server shall be the final authority in determining the terms of any wagers placed and the circumstances in which such wagers were made. The Gaming Operator reserves the right, at any time and without prior warning, to cease to offer an announced game and to withdraw a scheduled gaming activity. In such event all commenced but not completed games will be annulled and the wagers will be repaid to the Player.
3.7 In accordance with Section 22, there is a minimum amount of any single transfer (deposit) to a Player's Account ("Minimum Deposit Amount"). In case a transfer is initially accepted and thus shown on the Player’s Account and the Gaming Operator later receives notice from the card issuer that the transfer for any reason shall be reversed, Gaming Operator will temporarily Close the Player’s Account on suspicion of fraud or stolen credit card.
3.8 Financial institutions, card providers, banks and other third party payment processors may charge a fee for processing payments (“Third Party Payment Processor Fees”). The Player is liable to pay any and all such Third Party Payment Processor Fees. The Gaming Operator may charge deposit fees as defined in Section 22.
3.9 Gaming Operator will monitor all wagers and account transactions. It is prohibited and unlawful to deposit money from ill-gotten means. Therefore, all transactions are checked to prevent money laundering and all suspicious transactions will be reported to the Gaming Operator’s Money Laundering Reporting Officer (MLRO) who will report to and advise the relevant authorities.
3.10 A Player can at any time log in to his account and view a statement of his account which would show all transactions effected on that account, namely deposits, bonuses, winnings, wagers and withdrawals. Should the Player notice any mistakes he must notify the Gaming Operator immediately so that the mistake can be rectified. Players should report such a mistake within 90 days from when the mistake first appeared on the statement available on the website.
3.11 The funds on the Player’s account are separated from the Gaming Operators operating accounts and are kept in a ring fenced account with Bank of Valletta. The funds in the ring fenced account are separated from the Gaming Operators estate and are protected in the event of insolvency. In the event of insolvency the funds would therefore still belong to you and would not fall into the hands of the liquidator.
4.1 In the event of:
(a) a game malfunction;
(b) any use of the Site in a way not intended by its design;
(d) an obvious misprint in a pay table; or
(e) any wager or account transaction of ill-gotten means or otherwise related to such transactions described in Section 3.8 above
All related wagers, bonuses received and winnings accrued thereof are considered null and void, and the Player’s Account will be returned to its starting balance (for the avoidance of doubt the starting balance is the balance the Player had on the Player’s Account prior to the erroneous wagering activity less any bonuses received and winnings accrued thereof). In case of an error referable to Gaming Operator’s suppliers or other third parties, Section 17.3 below shall apply.
4.2 The Gaming Operator reserves the right to declare a wager void if Gaming Operator, at its own discretion, would deem it obvious that any of the following circumstances have occurred;’
a) the Player, or people associated with the Player may directly or indirectly influence the outcome of an event; (b) the Player and or people associated with the Player are directly or indirectly avoiding the rules of the Gaming Operator; (c) the result of an event has been directly or indirectly affected by criminal activity; (d) the odds of an event have significantly been changed due to a public announcement in relation to the event; (e) wagers have been placed that would not have been accepted otherwise, but that were accepted during periods when the website have been affected by technical problems; (f) due to an error, such as a mistake, misprint, technical error, force majeure or otherwise, wagers have been offered, placed and or accepted due to this error.
5.1 Available withdrawal options and associated fees and requirements are listed in Section 22. Detailed information concerning the available withdrawal options is available on the Site.
5.2 The Player always has access to its deposits and winnings (subject to the bonus money turn-over requirements set forth below) and may at any time request a pay-out from its Player’s Account. The Gaming Operator will execute pay-outs within three bank days. In accordance with Section 22 there is a minimum pay-out amount (“Minimum Pay-Out Amount”).
5.3 In case of cumulative amounts in excess of the equivalent of 2,000 EUR the Gaming Operator will conduct an identification verification process to establish the Player’s identity, age and place of residence. The Gaming Operator also reserves the right to perform such verification procedures in connection with pay-outs where the amount corresponds to less than the equivalent of 2,000 EUR.
5.3 In case of cumulative amounts in excess of the equivalent of 2,000 EUR the Gaming Operator will conduct an identification verification process to establish the Player’s identity, age and place of residence. The Gaming Operator also reserves the right to perform such verification procedures in connection with pay-outs where the amount corresponds to less than the equivalent of 2,000 EUR.
5.5 Gaming Operator actively endeavours to combat money-laundering. All transactions are checked to prevent money-laundering and suspicious transactions will be reported to the relevant authorities. As a standard operating procedure, pay-outs from a Player’s Account to the Player will be made to the bank account or credit card from which the funds paid into the Player’s Account originated. To the extent considered possible by the Gaming Operator, transactions will be made in accordance with the choice of withdrawal method provided by the Player to the Gaming Operator. However, the Gaming Operator reserves the right, at all times, to make the final decision on the choice of withdrawal method. Depending in the Player’s or the Gaming Operator’s choice of withdrawal method withdrawals may result in fees payable to a third party, such as banks and financial institutions. Information about applicable fees from time to time is provided on the Site under “My Account” and “Settings”. The Player understands and accepts that such fees and other fees payable to third parties shall be paid by the Player. In case a bank account has not been designated by the Player, the Player will be required to fax a copy of the Player’s identification documents to the Gaming Operator and notify the Gaming Operator of the bank account to which payment shall be made.
5.6 Before any pay-outs are carried out the Gaming Operator has the right to request a valid document of identification, for example a copy of a passport, driver’s license or any other valid document of identification. The Gaming Operator reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine which documents of identification that are acceptable. If the Player has deposited funds with credit cards or debit cards or if the Player has requested a pay-out to be made to a credit card or debit card, the Gaming Operator has the right to request copies of both front page and back page the relevant card. For the Player’s own safety, the Gaming Operator recommends that the Player only makes the first six (6) numbers and the last four (4) numbers on the credit card or debit card visible when providing the copy of the card. The CVV/CVV2 number on the credit card or debit card should not be visible on the copy.
5.7 Financial institutions, banks and other Third Party Payment Processors may charge Third Party Payment Processor Fees. The Player is liable to pay any and all Third party Payment Processor Fees.
5.8 Gaming Operator reserves the right to refuse pay-outs from the Player’s Account and to Close a Player’s Account if this is not used for wagers on the Site and/or if there is suspicion of abuse of the Gaming Operator services, fraud or any other criminal act.
6. SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND SELF PROTECTION
6.1 The Player and Gaming Operator are aware of the risks of excessive gambling. In order to minimize these risks the Player is able to voluntarily put limits on the Player’s gaming in the following ways (“Gaming Limitations”):
(a) Set a limit of the time during which the Player is allowed to play during a certain session.(b) Set a limit on the total amount the Players may wager during a certain time period.(c) Set a limit on the total losses the Player is allowed to incur during a certain time period.(d) Set a limit on the amount that the Player is allowed to deposit into the Player’s Account per week.(e) Blocking of the Player’s Account.

6.2 The above Gaming Limitations are carried out by contacting Customer Service at the Site (Customer Service/Contact Us/Select Topic/Limits) or in writing. A requested Gaming Limitation will have effect immediately when a confirmation email from Customer Service is received by the Player. The same procedure is used in case a prior Gaming Limitation is lowered. The Player is required to follow the Gaming Operator’s instructions for implementing a Gaming Limitation. If a Gaming Limitation is raised or lifted, such change will have effect seven days after the Gaming Operator’s receipt of the request. A Gaming Limitation set by the Player will remain in effect until the Player has revoked or changed such limitation. The Gaming Operator will not accept wagers in contradiction to the Gaming Limitations set by the Player.
7. BONUSES AND FREESPINS
7.1 Gaming Operator will from time to time award bonus money to Players which are accounted for separately. Gaming Operator reserves the right to refuse or rescind bonuses at any time for any reason. Bonus money cannot under any circumstance be withdrawn from the Player’s Account. If a Player withdraws money from its Player' Account and there still is bonus money on the Player’s Account which has not been wagered in accordance with Section 7.2 such un-wagered bonus money on the Player’s Account will be automatically forfeited and no longer available for the Player. The Gaming Operator applies the principle that cash funds on the Player’s Account are first used for payment of games and bonuses in second hand.
7.2 In relation to certain games, bonus money must be wagered by the Player a certain number of times before any winnings resulting from the bonus money can be withdrawn from the Player’s Account (called a turnover requirement). The highest wager allowed when using bonus money, until the turnover requirement has been fulfilled, is 5 euro (50 SEK) per spin and 50 eurocent (50 öre) per betting line. For the purposes of this requirement, a spin is defined as a roulette spin, a hand in any table game, a wager in Video Poker, a spin on a game machine, a lottery ticket or a corresponding game in the casino. Any bonus money wager that exceeds the above limits constitutes a breach of these Terms and Sections 4.1 and 12.1 shall apply. The turnover requirements are described on the Site (www.redbet.com/sv/promotions). The Player is responsible for ensuring that the Player is aware of the terms and conditions of the turnover requirements at all times.
7.3 Any bonuses and/or freespins may only be used on a single occasion per Player’s Account. It is not allowed in any way for a Player to use another Player’s Account in order to circumvent this restriction and gain more than one bonus/freespin. Any bonuses and/or freespins can only be used once by each household, family, address, e-mail address, IP-address and Player’s Accounts which are used from computers in public environments (such as schools, workplaces and libraries). In addition, the Gaming Operator reserves the right to Close any Player’s Account and seize any existing funds if the Gaming Operator suspects that any kind of abuse, fraud or other undue usage of the Player’s Account occurs.
7.4 Please observe that it is not allowed to use the bonus money to play on any Table Games, Poker Games, Mega Joker, Jackpot 6000 or Video Poker games.

Game play on slots with progressive jackpots will not count towards the wagering requirement.
