5.10. We may notify You of changes to, or of important matters relevant to, the Service(s), by email or SMS. Such notices will be deemed effective if transmitted to the email address or mobile telephone number You have provided to Us on registration (subject to changes that You notify Us of).

5.12. If You engage in any of type of illegal or fraudulent activity, You will forfeit any winnings accrued through the use of the Service(s) and the appropriate authorities will be notified.

5.14. If You do not use Your Account for a continuous period of 2 years We will close Your Account and make reasonable efforts to notify You of such closure. Should there be any remaining funds on Your Account at this time they will be forfeited unless claimed by You.
6. DEPOSITS AND WITHDRAWALS
6.1. You may make bets and/or wagers up to the amount of the current available balance in Your Account. Any unpaid balance in Your Account will not bear interest.
6.2. You can request withdrawals from Your Account at any time provided We have received all payments due to Us.

6.3. Withdrawals are normally processed within 48 hours and within this time You may reverse Your cash withdrawal request and Your funds will be returned to Your Account. Money withdrawn will be forwarded to the credit or debit card Account You registered with Us. Once withdrawn, Your funds should clear back onto Your credit or debit card within 3-5 working days, however this does depend on Your own bank's procedures and We cannot therefore guarantee this.
6.4. We may perform random security checks and will keep records of transactions, bets and wagers. We may, at any point, demand reasonable additional documentation in the event of a security check including without limitation to prove Your identity and address to Our satisfaction. We may terminate and/or suspend Your registration and/or Account and/or withhold any payments due to You if We do not receive such documentation. Please refer to the FAQs for what information we may require from You and when. Any request for withdrawals totalling £2,500 or more in any 48 hour period may be subject to management approval.

We may use third-party electronic payment processors and/or financial institutions ("Processors") to process such transactions. Please see Our FAQs on the Website for a list of current Processors.

You agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of use of any applicable Processors. In the event of conflict between this Agreement and third party terms and conditions then this Agreement shall prevail.
6.7. 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. 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.
6.8. Our eGambling regulators, the Gambling Commission (GB), require us to adhere to very strict rules to make sure that our assets outweigh our debts and the amount of cash we hold is greater than the amounts we owe our players at all times.

You can reactivate Your Account by contacting Our Customer Services department and providing Us with written notice to remove any suspension You may have placed on Your Account. Please see the "Responsible Gambling" page on the Website for more information in this regard. Please note, exclusion of a player in this way is a service offered by Us to players who want it and implies no responsibility or liability on Our part or any third party associated with the Service(s) including without limitation Our suppliers or sub-contractors for causing such gambling problems as the player may have. In addition, neither We nor any third party associated with the Service(s), will be liable if, after doing all that We reasonably can to prevent an excluded player from playing again, the player nevertheless deceives Us and succeeds in playing again.

11. SPORTSBOOK SPECIFIC TERMS
A. SPORTSBOOK BETS
1. In making a bet, You will determine the amount of Your own Stake, subject to the following:
1.1 You may bet up to the amount deposited in Your Player Account. We do not operate credit accounts.

1.3 there are restrictions on bets set out in this clause 11.A of the terms and conditions of this Agreement;

In such circumstances, Our decisions shall be final and binding on You and the amount of the Stake will be the amount confirmed and recorded by Us; and
1.5 if You purport to place a bet, the Stake for which would exceed any maximum limits, such bet shall be void.
2. If a bet is not made in full or if details of it are missing, We may, at our discretion, deem such bet to be void.

5. Bets in which You are participating (and whether You are participating for this purpose will be decided by Us in our absolute discretion) are not permitted. In relation to bets made in breach of this clause A.5, We are entitled to refuse payment of any Winnings and/or cancel the bet.
6. In making a bet, You represent and warrant to Us to not knowing nor having any influence over the outcome of the event in respect of which the bet is made. If the outcome is known, We may treat the bet as void.
7. We may, at any time, in Our absolute discretion and without giving any reason or advance notice, suspend a market or cease betting on a market.
8. You are obliged to check that the bet instructions You submitted are correct before confirming the bet. We reserve the right not to accept, or accept only a part, of any bet. We reserve the right to propose a different stake size or price for the selection on any bet.
9. At all times, where there is any disagreement as to the details of the bet or wager staked, Our records shall prevail.
10. Further information and conditions applicable to the sportsbook product are set out in the individual game rules for such product, and We reserve the right to amend the same at any time.
B. PLACING A BET ON SPORTSBOOK
1. The procedure for selecting games, sports events, outcomes, odds, types of bet and stakes, completing the betting slip and placing bets is described in the individual game rules for the product.
2. If a bet is declared invalid or void for the purposes of the terms and conditions of this Agreement, the individual game rules or the Website, it will be evaluated at odds of 1.00. For individual bets, the Stake will be refunded with 1.00 odds to the Player Account. For combination bets, the total odds of the combination bet will be recalculated with 1.00 odds of the selection that has been declared invalid.
3. The deadline for placing bets will in each case be determined by Us. Disputes over the times when bets are placed will be finally settled by reference to Our transaction log.
4. If, during the period for the acceptance of bets, information becomes available which permits the result of the relevant event to be determined, We shall be entitled to set a new deadline for the acceptance of bets or to cancel the bet (such cancelled bets to be evaluated at odds of 1.00).
5. Bets placed and accepted within the relevant time limit may not be revoked or changed except as expressly provided in these terms and conditions.
C. VALID BETS AND WAGERS ON SPORTSBOOK

3. Where We have taken the steps to void a bet or wager for one of the above reasons in clause 11.C.2 or as set out elsewhere in these terms and conditions, Your actions leading to that shall be considered a breach of these terms and conditions and entitle Us to terminate our relationship with immediate effect. In such circumstances We may use the monies we hold in your Player Account in order to settle any liabilities We may incur as a result of Your actions.
4. Gambling is a fast moving environment, odds move rapidly and bets are taken continuously and consequently mistakes do occasionally occur. We do all that We can to avoid this but We cannot accept responsibility for any obvious errors or omissions in respect of the announcing, publishing or marking of prices, the late closing of markets, place terms, handicaps, runners or results despite Our every effort to ensure total accuracy. If a bet is accepted in error by Us at a price or market condition, as indicated above, that is
4.1 materially different from those available in the general market at the time the bet was made; or
4.2 so obviously incorrect given the relative probability of the event occurring at the time the bet was made; or
4.3 so obviously incorrect having regard to the nature of the betting business or the market in question (including if We erroneously accept a bet after the event in question has commenced (unless it is an in-running bet)), then such bet shall be void.

5. We reserve the right to impose limits on the Winnings accruing from the successful bets made by You in any twenty four hour period or in any one week (regardless of the stake or whether the bet has been placed through more than one separate channel) and in order to determine the timing of a relevant bet for this purpose, reference will be made to the time when the final event for such bet is resolved rather than the time when the bet is made.
6. We may lay down limits on Winnings for bets different from or additional to those specified in clauses 11.D.4 and 11.D.5 and/or determine specific winning limits for You, subject to us notifying You.
7. If more than one bet and/or a combination of single and combination bets is placed with the same selections and We determine or suspect that they have originated from a single player, one or more related parties of such player, a group or syndicate of players or their respective related parties acting in concert or if a player has opened several accounts and has placed the same bet on each of them contrary to these terms and conditions, without prejudice to any other remedies or rights We may have in such circumstances, We shall be entitled to apply the relevant limits on Winnings set out in this clause 8.D to the aggregate Winnings on all such bets as if such bets were a single bet and/or to reduce the Stake to the extent necessary in order to comply with such limits on Winnings.

- Any winnings that you receive will be placed on to your Bonus Balance and cannot be withdrawn until you have met the Wagering Requirements for that bonus;
- The bonus amount itself may also not be withdrawn until you have met the Wagering Requirements. In some cases the bonus is Non-Redeemable, in which case the bonus amount can never be withdrawn. We will make this clear in the offer for that bonus;
- When you have met the Wagering Requirements, the sum in your Bonus Balance that is linked to the active bonus will be transferred into your Cash Balance and may then be withdrawn at any time.

Only one Bonus can be awarded for any specific event unless We state otherwise, and only one Bonus can be active on your Account at any one time.

PLEASE NOTE: for casino bonuses, the bonus and any winnings accrued may be removed from your account if cash bets have been placed on other areas of the site, such as on a sports bet or similar, in order to reduce the risk of the wager and/or wagering requirements of the bonus, i.e.: Your initial deposit must be used for casino bets if you have signed up to Vernons Casino, and not at Vernons Bingo or Vernons Sports.

It is important to note that this Cash Balance is not restricted money and the deposit and any winnings made from this deposit may be withdrawn at any time by you. If you do choose to withdraw this, the Bonus and any winnings from the Bonus will be forfeited as this money is restricted.
You cannot withdraw any sums in your Bonus Balance. When You have met the Wagering Requirements for the active bonus, the Bonus Balance associated with the active Bonus (being any accrued winnings and any remaining bonus amount (if the Bonus is Withdrawable)) will be transferred to your Cash Balance and may be withdrawn.
PLEASE NOTE that if You withdraw funds from your Cash Balance before you have met the Wagering Requirements you will forfeit all Bonuses and all accrued winnings.
Please also note that if your balance hits “zero” (0) at any point, then Bonuses are considered redeemed and are no longer subject to Wagering requirements.
17.1.5 WAGERING REQUIREMENTS
The Wagering Requirements of a Bonus means the total amount of bets you must stake before the Bonus and any accrued winnings are transferred into your Cash Balance and can be withdrawn. The Wagering Requirements for each Bonus are set out in the specific terms for the Bonus and will be expressed as a multiple of the Bonus amount, or of the Bonus plus the Deposit amount, along with a time limit by which this amount must be played through. The Wagering Requirements for our Bonus to newly registering players are set out here.
All our bonuses are designed to enhance your enjoyment of our games but we do reserve the right to manage how bonuses are used before you may cash them in, therefore not all bets will count towards the Wagering Requirements for your bonus. Bets on Roulette count 15%, Bets on Blackjack, Arcade games (Heads or Tails, Dice Twister, etc), Video Poker games (Jacks or Better, Aces and Faces, etc), Baccarat, Casino Hold'em, 2 Ways Royal, Craps and Sic Bo games contribute 5% of actual wagering on these games towards your wagering requirements. The majority of slot games contribute 100%, however there are various slot games that do not contribute to wagering at all (0% contributing towards wagering), games in this category can be found listed here in listed here full.Users who have used such wagering tactics in order to redeem their bonuses may have their bonuses, cash prizes and any subsequent winnings removed from their account.
The percentage of bets that contribute towards wagering requirements many differ for other bonus offers, but this will be made clear within the terms for those specific offers. Please read the wagering requirements carefully for each bonus offer you may receive.
17.1.6 MULTIPLE BONUSES ON A SINGLE ACCOUNT
Bonuses are handled one after the other. When the earliest Bonus is 'Fulfilled' or 'Revoked' (see the section below for the meaning of these terms), the next Bonus in line will become 'Active'.
There are four different stages to a Bonus, and these are as follows:
Active – A Bonus that You have started to play through, but in respect of which You have not yet completed the Wagering Requirements. While You have an active Bonus on Your Account, You cannot withdraw any bonus amount and/or any winnings.
Pending – A second or subsequent Bonus on Your Account which You have not yet started to play through. A Pending Bonus cannot be withdrawn as cash before meeting the relevant Wagering Requirements.
Fulfilled – A Bonus where the Wagering Requirements have been met. The bonus amount (where the bonus amount is withdrawable) and any winnings will be automatically transferred into Your Cash Balance and can be withdrawn.
Revoked – An Active or Pending Bonus can be revoked and removed from Your Bonus balance if either: (a) You have not met the Wagering Requirements within the defined period; or, (b) You decide to withdraw any cash amount from Your Account before the Wagering Requirements have been met; or (c) You are in breach of this Agreement or the promotion terms and conditions; or (d) You opt out of the bonus offer completely.
When a Bonus is revoked Your Bonus balance will be set to £0 and any restrictions on Your Account in relation to the Bonus will be lifted.
Unless expressly stated otherwise, Bonuses are awarded for use on Casino Games or Poker side games on the Website and in the Casino or Poker download client area only. Furthermore, any winnings generated from Bonuses may be used only on Casino Games or Poker side games.
17.1.7 PROMOTION ABUSE
We review transaction records and logs. If, upon such a review, it appears that a User is participating in strategies that we reasonably consider to be abusive, including without limitation the use of multiple identities, the provision of fake or altered identity details or documentation, the use of “rented” identification to claim winnings or working with others to manipulate results, we may revoke the entitlement of such a User to the promotion. Examples of what is deemed to be a “Promotion Abuse” include but are not limited to:
- Using more than one account
- Equal, zero or low margin bets
- Placing single bets equal to or in excess of 20% or more of the value of the Bonus credited to their account until such a time as wagering requirements have been met.
- Wagering bonuses on excluded games
- Manipulation of software, exploitation of loopholes or other technical forms of abuse or other behaviour which amounts to deliberate cheating
- Masking IP address or using a VPN
If upon such review, the players' practices have been deemed to be "Promotion Abuse", we may take the following actions:
- A valid telephone contact number MUST be provided on registration as We may make a confirmation call to You and request further documentation as part of confirming Your identity or compliance with the Agreement. If you cannot be contacted on the number provided and/or we are not reasonably satisfied as to your identity or compliance with this Agreement then the presumption will be that some form of promotion abuse has taken place and any winnings accrued from the use of any bonus offer may be forfeited and Your account terminated.
18. Bingo Bonus Terms & Conditions
You may be awarded promotional bonuses or bonus money ("Bonus") when You register with Us and open a Player Account or during Your time as a member of our Website. You are given the option to accept or decline any Bonus that has wagering requirements. You will need to accept the terms of the Bonus before it is added to your bonus balance.
It is important that You fully understand the terms of each Bonus that You are awarded. This section contains the general terms and conditions associated with Bonuses made available through our Vernons Bingo Website. In addition, each individual Bonus will also have supplementary terms and conditions that will be made available when You are awarded that Bonus. It is Your responsibility to review the supplementary terms and conditions that apply to each specific Bonus made available through our Vernons Bingo Website. In relation to each Bonus, You will be deemed to have accepted these Bonus Terms and Conditions, and the relevant supplementary terms and conditions applicable to that Bonus the first time that You place a bet with Us following such Bonus becoming Active. For the avoidance of doubt, any Real Money deposited by You in relation to a Bonus offer made available through our Vernons Bingo Website by Us, together with the Bonus award and any Winnings generated in respect of the same, can only be used in relation to Bingo Games, Bingo mini-games and Bingo side games on Vernons Bingo and cannot be used in connection with any other Product. If any bets are placed that contravene this rule then any Bonus amount, cash prizes and/or any subsequent winnings in relation to the Bonus awarded will be removed from the account.
Definitions used in these Bingo Bonus Terms and Conditions shall have the same meaning as given to such defined terms in the Agreement.
18.1. When You receive a Bonus, it will be added to Your Player Account. The Bonus amount will be paid into the relevant Bonus Balance section of Your Player Account and will be kept separate from Your Cash Balance/Real Money. You may be able to spend the Bonus on Bingo, mini-games in Bingo or the other Bingo games available on the Website. You will be able to see Your available Bonus Balance for each game on the actual game or via the "My Bonus Funds" page in the Bingo client section.
18.2. You cannot withdraw any sums directly from the Bonus Balance. When you deposit your own cash, this will be added to the Cash Balance/ Real Money section of Your Player Account. You may withdraw any sums from Your Cash Balance/ Real Money at any time including any winnings from this Cash deposit.
18.3. If You withdraw/transfer funds in relation to which You received a Bonus from Your cash balance/real money before reaching the minimum Wagering Requirements for that Bonus, all active or pending Bonuses on Your account at that time shall be void.
18.4.If You pre-purchase ticket(s) for a game of Bingo in the future when you have a bonus active on Your account and there are still wagering requirements to be met, then the wagering requirements for that Bonus will still be in effect until the game for which tickets were pre-purchased is played out and complete. To be clear, even if all bonus funds are spent but a game you pre-purchased has still not played out, then any winnings from other games, including from bets made using cash deposits, will be paid to Your Bonus Balance, not the Cash Balance, as the wagering criteria will still be active.
18.5. Unless expressly stated otherwise, Bonuses are awarded for use on bingo games, Bingo mini-games and Bingo side games only at http://bingo.vernons.com/.
18.6. Unless expressly stated otherwise in the relevant supplementary Terms and Conditions, when you place a bet, the bet will be deducted from your Bonus Balance. If there are no funds remaining in Your Bonus Balance, then bets will be deducted from Your Cash Balance/Real Money.
18.7. Any winnings that You receive as a result of placing bets whilst You have an Active Bonus will be credited to Your Bonus Balance/ Casino Bonus account and cannot be withdrawn until you have met the Wagering Requirements for that Bonus (please see clause 18.14 below).
18.8. Any winnings You make whilst playing on a game or category (cash or bonus stake) with outstanding Wager Requirements will be stored in a pending balance until You meet the Wager Requirement. You cannot withdraw cash from Your pending balance. You will be able to spend those pending funds to work down the Wager Requirement in the meantime.
18.9. Some bonuses will require You to either opt in or out. By selecting to opt in You are accepting all Terms and Conditions associated with that bonus and these Bingo Terms and Conditions. You will not be able to opt out once You make Your first stake after opting into a bonus. By opting out You are forfeiting the bonus and we will be unable to re-enter You for that bonus.
18.10. To release any pending funds You have in your cash balance, You must work down the entire Wager Requirement for the applicable bonus. Once You have done that, all funds stored in the pending balance for that bonus will be released to Your cash balance. If You still have Bonus funds in the Bonus then all subsequent winnings from those Bonus funds will be paid to Your cash balance.
18.11. All Withdrawals depend on fulfilling all conditions specified above and in the Agreement (including, without limitation, the verification of all ID documents requested).
18.12. Unless expressly stated otherwise in the specific terms applicable to an individual Bonus, you must place a bet that counts towards the relevant Wagering Requirements for that Bonus within 30 days following the date upon which such Bonus became active.
