If necessary, in order to release the Account, information may be requested from Player such as:
The Site reminds the Player that they are asked to provide personal identification documents so that a Deposit or Withdrawal can be made. This avoids the Site being used for money laundering or fraud.
The Site is committed to cooperating with Stripe (© Stripe) or any other payment platform concerned, and may be required to provide any information relating to a Player's Account to the competent jurisdictions or authorities.
A Gift Code is a sequence of characters corresponding to a predetermined amount of money, expressed in euros, granted by the Site to the Player. This allocation is occasional and at the Site’s discretion.
When the Player provides the Gift Code in the corresponding section on the Site, the preset amount is automatically credited to the Player’s Wallet.
It is specified that the amount of money credited thanks to the Gift Code can be withdrawn by the Player only if the following conditions are filled:
In case of proven or suspected fraud or cheating by the Player as defined in Article 10, the Site reserves the right to cancel a Gift Code still present in the Wallet Player without notice.
Moreover, the Site reserves the right to cancel at any time a Gift code that has not yet been activated by the Player, without notice.
A Bonus is a sequence of characters, entitling to a certain amount of money allocated from time to time by the Site for example to thank the Players who regularly attend Matches on the Site.
To benefit from this money, the Players concerned must first activate the Bonus that has been allocated to them by filling in the code into the box provided at the time of a Deposit.
Then there are different levels they can reach in accordance with the amount of Commissions they generate for the Site, depending on the money they credit on their account or depending on their participation in Matches.
Each time a level of Commissions is reached, a part of the amount of the Bonus is released and credited to the Player’s Wallet.
For each bonus, several levels must be achieved during the period of validity of Bonus, to benefit from the entire amount in question.
For example, a Player receives a bonus allowing him/her to unlock up to 10 euros for up to 4 months. The sum is released over 5 levels in increments of 4 euros to 20 euros.
If during the 4 months the Player reaches Level 1 and Level 2 based on Commissions that have been generated on the Site thanks to him/her during this period, he/she will be credited successively 2 euros when reaching Level 1 and 2 euros when reaching Level 2. However, as levels 3, 4 and 5 have not been reached, his/her Wallet will not be credited with the remaining 6 euros of the Bonus. If Level 3, 4 and 5 are reached during the 4 months, the entire amount of 10 euros will be credited.
In case of proven or suspected fraud by the Player as defined in Article 10, the Site reserves the right to cancel the Bonus; Player can no longer benefit from this advantage and no compensation for non-unlocked levels can be claimed.
In addition, the Site reserves the right to cancel a Bonus that has not been activated yet without notice.
All transactions on the Site are exclusively expressed in Euros.
When a Player wants to credit an amount of money in a currency other than the Euro on his/her Wallet, our banking intermediary (Stripe or any other payment platform) collects this amount on the Player’s bank account provided on the Site by the Player and the conversion rate of the Player’s bank will be applied. It is reminded that the Site has no control over the conversion rate used. For more information on conversion rates, the Player must contact his/her bank.
The Player wishing to participate in a Match on the Site must first choose the VideoGame on which he/she‘d like to play from the "Home" section. The list provided in this section may evolve with new Videogames available being added by the Site.
The first time a Videogame is selected, information related to the Player’s account on the concerned Videogame will be requested. This step will enable access to all Rooms of the concerned Videogame. This step should only be done once.
Once the desired Videogame is selected, the Player can enter a Room of his/her choice.
Each Room is defined by a name and an amount in Euro corresponding to the Buy In that the Player must pay when he joins the said Room. The amount of the Buy In is taken from the Player’s Wallet until the outcome of the Match.
Moreover, the Site also deducts from the Player’s Wallet the amount corresponding to its fees as defined in Article 12.
It is reminded that no credit is given by the Site. Therefore, a Player can access the Room of his/her choice insofar as he/she has in his/her Wallet the amount required to cover the amount of the Buy In and also the amount of the Commission.
It is reminded as well that in agreeing to join a Room, the Player acknowledges that he/she has read all information provided concerning the exact nature of the Match and the features of the concerned Room (Videogame concerned, amount required, name of the Room ...). The Site will make no refund or compensation in the event of an error of the Player in the choice of a Room.
To start a Match, it is necessary that the number of players as required in the description of the Room is reached. Once the required number of players is reached, everyone must check the "I'M READY" box. The Match will start and a series of instructions will appear instructing each Player on how to join the Game. Until all the concerned Players of the Room have not clicked on "I’M READY" box, the Match will not start.
When a match is started, it cannot be directly canceled by the Players.
However, all Players participating in the Match can send a cancellation request by email to email@example.com. The reason given for the cancellation request may be technical (such as a Player who failed to join the Game) or any other kind. The application will be reviewed by the Site that will give positive or negative answer as soon as possible.
In case of cancellation, all amounts paid by Players to join the Room, that is to say the Buy In and the Commission, will be refunded immediately on the Wallet of each Player concerned.
At the end of the Game depending on the Videogame used for the Match, the winner or winners will be designated manually or automatically.
8.5.1. In the case of a manual retrieval of the result, one of the Players at least must provide evidence of the result so that the Site can validate or not the result of the Match manually obtained. This evidence asked depends on the Videogame used for the Match and when required will be requested in any case, at the end of it.
If no evidence is provided by one of the Players, the result of the Match will be on hold and sums involved will not be distributed until one of the Players gives evidence of the result on the Site or via email.
8.5.2. In case of automatic retrieval, Players have nothing to do and the Site will automatically update the result of the Match when the Game is over.
However, in the event that a problem would occur during the automatic retrieval of the result, the Site will contact by email with all the Players to determine the outcome of the Match. If the result can not be determined without a doubt, the Match will be cancelled by the Site according to the conditions defined in section 8.4.
Note that the Site will not be held responsible if the automatic retrieval system is not able to update the Match score correctly. If necessary, Players can send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once the result is sent to the Site manually or automatically, Players can find a summary of the Match on the Bankroll page of the Site.
A Player can win or lose money based on the results obtained during his/her Matches. These winnings and losses impact the amount of money in his / her Wallet.
In the case where a Player loses a Match, the Buy In paid to join the concerned Room is lost.
In the case where a Player wins a Match, an amount equal to twice the Buy in paid to join the Room, will be credited to his/her Wallet.
It is reminded that the sums earned by a Player at the end of a Match cannot be withdrawn and credited immediately to the bank account of the Player.
The Site requires a minimum of 72 hours between the result of the Match and the withdrawal by the Player, in order to be able to deal with potential disputes concerning the outcome of the Match.
