Where you are requesting a wire transfer for the first time, we will require proof of identity to be provided. This withdrawal option will only be offered in certain circumstances and you may not withdraw funds by this method if we are able to return your withdrawal to your registered debit or credit card.
- In the case of Pre-Paid: where a withdrawal option is not available, we reserve the right to charge a reasonable processing fee (which will reflect our actual processing costs) to return funds via bank wire transfer.

We reserve the right to withdraw the availability of any offer or all offers to any customer or group of customers at any time and at our sole and absolute discretion.

These changes can be made by accessing the facility ’My Account‘. We will not accept any liability or responsibility for transactions which are declined. Should your credit card be lost, stolen or re-issued, you are required to notify us immediately either by contacting Customer Support at email@example.com or by removing those cards from the payment methods registered on your account.
Account closure: You can close your account at any time by contacting Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org. Subject to the provisions of these Terms and Conditions, when you close your account you will be entitled to the return of all cleared funds in it.
Dormant Accounts: For the purposes of these Terms and Conditions, your account will be deemed to be a “Dormant Account” where:-
- you have not used your account; or
- you have not logged in to your account; or
- you have not made any deposits or withdrawals in or from your account;
in each case for a continuous period of 12 months or more.
In such instances, we will endeavour to contact you using the contact details you have provided on registration (or such details as have subsequently been notified by you) to inform you of any funds remaining in your inactive account and to return such balance to you. You are solely responsible for keeping your registration and contact details up to date, and agree that we cannot be liable for any failure on your part to provide us with up to date and correct contact details.
If your account is or becomes Dormant, then your account shall be closed.

Funds, Interest and charges: The UK Gambling Commission requires that we inform you about the levels of protection we apply to customer funds and the extent to which your funds are protected in the event of our insolvency.
We hold customer funds separate from our company funds in a separate Bank Trust Account. That treatment meets UK Gambling Commission requirements for the Protection of customer funds at its stipulated “basic” protection and segregation of funds level. The implications of our treatment are that your funds would form part of the general assets of our business in the unlikely event of our insolvency and recovery of funds, if any, would be subject to general insolvency law. For more information as to the rating system and the implications of the basic protection employed please see here. Any deposits on your account shall not attract any interest payments. All such deposits will be treated as advanced payment for intended wagering on the Website. We reserve the right to make a charge directly on your account in respect of deposits or withdrawals which we believe have been made for purposes primarily associated with reasons other than gaming on the Website.
If we suspect you have made deposits and/or withdrawals to and from your Genting account in order to obtain goods or services from a third party (such as Air Miles), without a commensurate use of the Website Service, we reserve the right to charge a 5% handling fee, to be deducted from the withdrawal to cover our administration time and all bank charges associated with the relevant deposits. We also reserve the right to withhold payment for up to 28 days in accordance with section 14 below (Right of Refusal).
Credit errors: If you notice that any sum has been incorrectly credited to your account, you must notify us immediately. We shall be entitled to reverse any such credits and/or recover those sums from you if they have been withdrawn. If any sums credited in error have been used by you to place further bets or wagers, we can cancel those subsequent bets or wagers and reverse any winnings. We may at any time set off any amount on deposit in your account against any amounts owed by you to us.
5. WAGERING AND BETTING
- Please refer to the General Betting Rules and Sport Rules, all such other of our rules or policies as they relate to the Website Service (including rules for a particular game, promotions, bonuses, special offers or any other aspect of your use of the website service from time to time) for a full explanation of the rules applying to each constituent part of the Website Service.
- Any bet or wagers placed by you is done solely on the exercise of your own judgment and discretion. You acknowledge that you have not relied on any statement, representation or advice from us (including any of our employees) in deciding to place a bet. You also acknowledge that by using the Website Service you may lose money and you accept full responsibility for any such losses. You accept that your participation in the Website Service is at your sole discretion and risk.
- Whilst we endeavour to ensure that the information on the Website is correct and that the software is in good working order, we do not accept any liability for errors on any part of the Website or software or any other element of the Website Service including but not limited to bet settlement and we reserve the right to void all bets on any transactions affected by any such error. You undertake to notify us promptly of any error of which you become aware and not to take advantage of it. We reserve the right to recover from you any monies that you may receive as a result of an error together with all costs and expenses incurred in doing so. We shall be entitled to set-off any subsequent amounts you deposit with us to satisfy any such liability.
- If there is any disagreement as to the details of a particular bet or wager or amount staked, then our records shall always prevail. You acknowledge that our random number generator will determine the outcome of the games played on the Gaming Service. In the unlikely event of a disagreement between the result that appears on your screen and our game server, you hereby agree the result that appears on the game server will prevail. You acknowledge and agree that our records will be the final authority in determining the terms and circumstances of your participation in the relevant online gaming activity and the results of your participation.
- We reserve the right to refuse or limit the whole or part of any wager for any reason at our discretion. In any event you are not allowed to place a wager greater than the amount in credit in your account. We also reserve the right to set the maximum and minimum stake amounts and these will be updated in the relevant Sport Rules, all such other of our rules or policies as they relate to the Website Service (including rules for a particular game, promotions, bonuses, special offers or any other aspect of your use of the website service from time to time). Minimum and maximum stakes may also be displayed in respect of each relevant market and game on the Website Service. The maximum win in respect of your use of the Betting Service shall be limited to £100,000 in any 24 hour period. The maximum win in respect of the Gaming Service (excluding Crockfords Live and Progressive Slots jackpots) shall be £500,000.
- Where a multiple bet has been placed which involves events with different maximum winnings limits then the lowest limit will apply. All maximum winnings limits apply to any one customer, or group of customers acting together, who have placed bets containing the same selections, including where placed in a series of bets, at a range of prices, over a number of days using different betting accounts and/or across different betting channels. Should we have reason to believe that a number of bets have been placed this way, the total payment of all those bets combined will be limited to one single maximum winnings payout.
- While we endeavour to ensure that the Website is normally available 24 hours a day, we shall not be liable if for any reason the Website is unavailable at any time or for any period. Access to the Website may be suspended temporarily and without notice in the case of system failure, maintenance or repair or for reasons beyond our control.
- We shall only honour transactions which we have actually received and placed bets shall only be treated as received at the time that our systems actually receive them.
6. COMPLAINTS AND DISPUTES
We recognise and understand that from time to time, you may be or become dissatisfied with the gaming service provided to you.
This section explains how to make a complaint and the process that we apply once you have done so. Your legal and statutory rights remain unaffected by our process.
Raising a Complaint
You may raise a complaint with us at any time by contacting our Customer support team via email on email@example.com. You must do so within 6 months of the cause of your complaint having arisen. Complaints received after that time will not be considered.
It generally assists us if you put “complaint” in the subject header of your email and also outline in a reasonable level of detail what your complaint is about. We may also contact you if necessary for further details about your complaint when you lodge it with us, if we require it.
Once we have your complaint we will in all but very rare cases (for example, where the fact of complaint itself isn’t abundantly clear) confirm our receipt of it (by email, phone, or chat) within 24 hours.
If your complaint is straightforward (for example, an acknowledged system or player balance error on our part or e.g. a simple misunderstanding) and can be resolved quickly and without undue formality, we reserve the right to do so, via our customer service team following receipt of your complaint. In all other circumstances, your complaint will proceed to Stage 1 consideration.
An member of the customer service team will be tasked with investigating your complaint and responding to it. That customer services agent (or other members of our team) may contact you for your input or comment during their initial investigation. You agree that you will engage with us as to your complaint in an open and respectful manner.
Once we have concluded our investigation we shall write to you (or inform you by phone) of our decision as to your complaint. In doing so theywe will outline your complaint and our decision in respect of it as well as any recommendations or actions (if any) arising from it.
We reserve the right to issue a final determination of your complaint at this stage, for example, if we consider your complaint, frivolous, vexatious, without real basis, or that it results in a clear and conclusive answer. Should we do so you may either accept that decision or proceed to ADR (if applicable and on which see (9) below).
If you are dissatisfied with our Stage 1 response (and we haven’t told you that it constitutes our final determination of your complaint) you can email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to ask for a Stage 2 consideration of your complaint. Note that it would assist us if you could outline why you remain dissatisfied with the Stage 1 decision, albeit this is not obligatory.
Stage 2 Consideration
Where you request escalation of your complaint, your complaint and the stage 1 decision shall be relayed to a customer services manager for further review. That complaint will be investigated and considered as per the Stage 1 process.
Once the responsible manager has concluded their investigation he/she shall write to you (or phone you) to inform you of their decision as to your complaint. In so doing they will outline your complaint and the reason for their decision in respect of it, as well as any recommendations or actions (if any) arising from it. The manager will also confirm that his decision constitutes our final decision as to your complaint and what options are available to you should you remain dissatisfied with the outcome.
We will use all reasonable endeavours to review and conclude our complaints process within 8 weeks of our initial acknowledgement.
The only exceptions to this are/will be:-
Where we await and need your input to properly review your complaint (in which case the deadline for our response shall be extended by a period equivalent to the time it took for you to provide the input needed); or
Where you raise additional complaints during the complaints process, each additional complaint will be treated as received on the date that the specific complaint was raised and the timescale for responding to that particular complaint will run from the date of receipt.
Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) and other options
If following receipt of our final determination, you remain dissatisfied then:-
- Either you (or us) may choose to refer your dispute to our chosen ADR entity, the Independent Betting Arbitration Service (“IBAS”) - further information on how to refer your dispute to IBAS and their contact details can be found here; or
- You may submit your dispute online to the European Commission’s Online Dispute Resolution (“ODR”) Service, further details on how to submit can be found here;
- IBAS act as fully independent (UK Gambling Commission approved) adjudicators of gaming disputes between online casinos and their customers. There is no charge to you to make an IBAS referral.
- The ADR entities (above) are only presently obliged to consider complaints relating to “gaming transactions”. This would typically include complaints about a wager, administration of your online account, and/or disputes as to gaming funds or winnings but would not include generalized non-gaming complaints e.g. about poor customer service/other.
- Neither IBAS (nor any other UK Gambling Commission approved ADR entity) is obliged to adjudicate a dispute if (i) you have not attempted to engage with the first stage of our complaints process; or (ii) your dispute is considered frivolous or vexatious; or (iii) the dispute is subject to another disputes process or adjudication; or (iv) you have not met any notified timescales for submission of your dispute to IBAS.
- The online ODR submission process (above) will require that you select a UK Gambling Commission approved, Alternative Dispute Resolution (”ADR”) entity to review your complaint and both parties must approve that choice to progress the ODR process. Typically IBAS will be our proposed ADR Entity, as it is both approved by the UK Gambling Commission and best placed to adjudicate on remote gaming disputes in any event.
- Whilst any stage of an investigation is ongoing or thereafter we reserve the right to (and in some instances the law requires that we) withhold payment in respect of any event or complaint that comes under investigation for cheating, impropriety, fraud, collusion, or other improper activity.
- When a dispute occurs which cannot be resolved by us, any relevant papers and recordings may be made available to IBAS and the UK Gambling Commission in order to (i) give the adjudicator full details of your complaint; and (ii) to meet our regulatory obligations to furnish full details of your complaint to the regulator.
- Where the value of the dispute is less than £10,000, Wwe will honour the findings and recommendations made by any approved ADR entity (and would expect you to do likewise) in the absence of any manifest error or irregularity with that body’s decision or recommendation.
We expect and require that the fact and content of your complaint will remain confidential between us whilst it is subject to consideration by us (or third party adjudicator). The foregoing does not apply, however, where e.g. law or legal process requires public disclosure and nothing herein affects your legal or statutory rights in that regard.
7. SELF EXCLUSION AND SETTING YOUR OWN GAMING LIMITS
- We take responsible gaming very seriously. If you wish to self-exclude from gambling then you can do so by following our self-exclusion procedure set out here. If you choose to do this, it will be for a minimum of six months before you may apply for reinstatement.
It is also possible to restrict the amount of your Deposits, Bets or Spend on our sites upon placing your first deposit (by pop up window / prompt) and thereafter and at any time by choosing and setting limits in the “my accounts” page of your account with us. Limits can be set over a calendar daily, weekly or monthly period. Additionally a session timer may be also set which will log you out of the session when triggered.
If you do choose to self-exclude or apply limits to your account and correctly notify us, then we agree that we will use reasonable endeavours to ensure that we comply with your self-exclusion or relevant limits set by you.
By electing to self-exclude or by applying limits to your account you accept and agree that you will not seek to continue your gaming on our website (or game in excess of your notified limit) or to otherwise circumvent your self-exclusion or limitation and that we shall have no responsibility or liability for any subsequent consequences or losses (howsoever caused) that you may suffer or incur if you commence or continue gambling through your online account(s), including but not limited to instances where you have altered any of your registration details or where you provide misleading, inaccurate or incomplete details or otherwise seek to circumvent your notified self-exclusion or limit.
When self-excluding from our sites it is also possible to exclude yourself from other casino operators who adhere to the “Gamblock” scheme
If you would like to prevent access to other participating gaming, wagering or gambling facilities on the internet please visit www.gamblock.com. Gamblock™ blocks access to internet gambling sites on the web. It can help problem gamblers avoid the dangers of unrestricted gambling. For the avoidance of doubt, however, Genting does not and cannot accept liability in respect of any failure of a (Gamblock subscribing or other) third party to exercise or enforce a self- exclusion via this site.
If you require further information relating to this or our own self-exclusion process, please contact our Customer Support at email@example.com.
- On completion of our self-exclusion process, we will close your account and return any outstanding balance to you. Any outstanding bets or wagers that have already been placed shall remain valid and we will forward any winnings to you after the relevant event has been concluded. We will not reopen any self-excluded account but, after the expiry of the exclusion period (6 months minimum) you may contact Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org to open your account. Subsequent to contacting Customer Support, you will be required to verify your request by speaking to one of our customer representatives. No other method of re-activation is possible.
At the expiry of your period of self-exclusion you may contact us to make a request to reactivate your account, and, in such circumstances there will be a 24 (twenty four) hour cooling off period before you are able to access the Website Service.
If you have any concerns about the extent to which your use of our Website has ceased to be a fun experience, then please click on either our own social responsibility page - www.gentingcasino.com/responsible-gaming/ or www.gambleaware.com for further information.

- If you suspect that any such third party might be cheating by undertaking one of the following:

- use of multiple accounts,
you should report such activity to our Customer Support at email@example.com as soon as reasonably practicable.

We reserve the right at any time (including after a bet has been determined) to:-
- refuse and/or void any bet or part of a bet; and/or
- to terminate your account; and/or

In addition, we reserve the right to retain any funds related to that activity and the balance on the accounts in question. We shall be under no obligation to provide you with any reasons for these actions. If the activity and transactions are cleared of any suspicions all retained funds will be made available to you.
- Where we suspect that you are participating in any form of cheating, collusion, fraudulent practice, sports integrity issues or money laundering activities, we reserve the right to report such activity or suspicions to the regulators, the police, relevant authorities (including sports bodies), other online gaming or gambling operators, other online service providers and banks, credit card companies, electronic payment providers or other financial institutions including details of your identity and you agree to cooperate fully with us to investigate any such activity.

GENERAL BETTING RULES
The general betting rules set out below must be read in conjunction with the Terms and Conditions (above) and the Sports Rules available here.
In these Terms and Conditions, Genting Casinos UK Limited is referred to as “Genting”, “us”, “we” or “our” and you are referred to as “you” or “your”.
1. PLACING BETS
- We reserve the right to accept or refuse the whole or any part of any proposed bet.
- A bet shall be deemed to be void if the required stake is not transmitted in full before the event commences, unless (in our absolute discretion) we accept the bet subject to authorisation.
- Bets may not be cancelled or changed once the bet has been placed and acceptance of the bet has been confirmed by us, either in the form of a generated bet receipt or in the open or settled bets section of your account.
- It is your responsibility to ensure details of any bets that you place are correct.
- All prices are subject to variation and, save where the starting price has been selected by you, the price shall be fixed at the time a bet is placed.
- We cannot be held responsible for any typing, human or software error which leads to any errors or omissions in relation to any product or in respect of any publication on the Website of any prices or results other than those intended. We reserve the right to void any bets which have been accepted at an incorrect price.
- We are not responsible for the accuracy of any offers, prices or other information displayed on any third-party website including but not limited to price comparison or affiliate websites and we accept no liability in respect of any such errors.
- It is your responsibility to understand the betting and gaming terminology used on the Website and the mechanism of any bet types that you select. If you have any queries as to how certain bet types work, please contact Customer Support at firstname.lastname@example.org before placing any such bet. We cannot accept any responsibility if you place a bet which you do not fully understand.
- A number of bets may be treated as being a single bet when a customer places multiple copies of the same bet. When this occurs all bets will be voided apart from the first bet struck.
- The use of a “banker” selection or selections to circumvent online limits is not permitted.
- Where a number of multiple bets, involving identical or very similar selections, are received by different customers within a short timeframe, we reserve the right to void all such bets, even after the bets have been determined.
2. MAXIMUM WINNINGS
The maximum amount that can be won by one customer in one twenty-four hour period, regardless of the size of the stake or the number of bets placed, is £100,000 (or its equivalent amount in a currency accepted by us on the Website).
3. NON RUNNERS / NON-PARTICIPANTS AND VOID SELECTIONS
- Save in respect of bets placed under ante post terms (see section 5 below), the stake placed on single bets will be returned in circumstances where the subject of the relevant bet has been entirely withdrawn from the relevant event prior to its commencement. In accumulative bets the stake will run on to the remaining selection(s) with a double becoming a single, a treble becoming a double and so on.
- Unless a specific reference is made in the individual section that covers the sport, all bets placed on abandoned or postponed events shall be treated as void. However, bets in markets that have already been resolved at the time of abandonment and which could not be altered regardless of future events (such as the identity of the first goal scorer) will be settled in accordance with its outcome.
4. DEAD HEATS
In the event of a DEAD HEAT the stake money on a selection is divided by the number of runners or competitors involved in the dead heat. The full odds are then paid proportionately to the divided stake, with the remainder of the stake money being treated as a losing stake.
5. ANTE POST BETTING (FUTURE EVENTS)
- Ante post bets are those placed at prices on:
- Horse Racing prior to the final declaration stage;
- Sports events prior to the start of an event, with the exception of bets on a match, a single race event or an individual heat/stage;
- All special (non-sporting) events.
- You agree that ante post bets are accepted on the understanding that you will lose your stake if your selection does not participate. No Tattersalls’ Rule 4 deductions are made from winning bets except when a runner in a horse race is balloted out.
- Bets placed after the start of a sports event are not classified by us as ante post. Unless otherwise stated in the Sport Rules for a particular sport, the start of an event is defined as the first time at which any competitive action commences. Stakes will be refunded on competitors/teams who do not participate in the relevant event after the bet is placed, unless they have been eliminated by competition rules. A Tattersalls’ Rule 4 deduction will be applied to winning bets placed after the competitor’s/team’s last competitive action and prior to the market being re-formed.
- Stakes will not be refunded on competitors/teams who start an event and then withdraw.
- In total tournament/series markets (e.g. winner of the golden boot), individuals named in the team squad will be deemed to have participated whether or not they have taken part in any competitive action.
- Ante post each way doubles, trebles etc. are settled win to win, place to place.
- Ante post bets are settled at the price and place terms applicable at the time of acceptance.
- Place only bets and forecast bets are not accepted at ante post odds. If taken in error, place only bets will be void. Forecast bets will be settled on the computer straight forecast.
- The terms of any bespoke bets placed following a written request from an individual customer will be clarified in our written response to the customer prior to the bet being placed.
- If a horse race is cancelled, rescheduled to run at another racecourse or run on a different surface (turf to all weather or vice versa) then ante post bets will be deemed to be void.
- If a horse race is re-scheduled to run at the same race course then all ante post bets will stand. However if the race reopens or reverts back to a previous forfeit or declaration stage then we will allow any *open ante post bets to be cancelled by mutual consent. *An *open ante post bet is where the selection is a declared runner or quoted in the betting market at the time of postponement. Bets can only be voided by mutual consent prior to the final declaration stage.
6. RELATED CONTINGENCIES
- Accumulative/multiple bets are not accepted where the outcome of one part of the bet contributes to the outcome of another. For example: £10 double on Liverpool to win the FA Cup semi-final 3-0 and Liverpool to qualify for the final. The second part of the bet is wholly reliant on the successful outcome of the first stage of the double.
- If taken in error the stakes will be equally divided in respect of the contingent elements of the accumulative/multiple bet and shall be separated into individual bets. However, where the related parts of the bet are resolved at different times, unless ‘special double’ or ‘special accumulative’ odds are available, bets will be settled as instructed with the odds for the second or subsequent legs being determined at each individual stage.
7. SPORTS GOVERNING BODIES
- It is a condition of your use of the Betting Service that you represent that:
- you are not prohibited from entering into the bet by any term of your contract of employment or any rule of a Sports Governing Body, which applies to you.
- you are not aware of any circumstance which would make the placing of the bet a breach of a rule on betting applied by a Sports Governing Body.
- where the bet is placed on the outcome of a race, competition or other event or on the likelihood of anything occurring, you do not know the outcome of the event or have not been involved in any circumstances which might affect its potential outcome.
- If we become aware or suspect that any such representation by you is or may be false your stake will be forfeited and we shall not be obliged to pay any winnings which might otherwise have been payable in respect of the relevant placed bet.
8. DATA SUPPLIED BY A THIRD PARTY
Please be aware that any data (such as current scores or elapsed time) that is displayed on the Website or on our text screens is sourced from a ‘live feed’ provided by a third party and may be subject to time delay and/or be inaccurate. If you rely on this data to place bets, you do so entirely at your own risk and we accept no responsibility for any loss (direct or indirect) suffered by you as a result of your reliance on it.
We reserve the right to withhold payment if we become aware or suspect that the prices of a particular event have been manipulated or where a race, event or match has been rigged. Pending the outcome of any investigation and, in our absolute discretion, we reserve the right to declare bets on any such race, event or match as void.
10. LATE BETS
- Bets may be placed up to the scheduled start time of the event or a pre-determined time, whichever is the earlier.
- Any bet inadvertently accepted after the betting has closed or where the event was resolved or at a stage where the customer could have any indication of the outcome will be settled at the correct price at the time the bet was placed.
- Bets placed after the final event result is known will be voided.
- Should there be a dispute over the start time of an event/market where an official starting time is not given by that sport’s governing body, then the time that we determine the event to have started and the time at which the bet was placed according to our transactional logs (if recorded) will be conclusive evidence in the settlement or non-settlement of all bets in respect of that event/market.
The Genting Casino experience has been created for your enjoyment. As a responsible and regulated company we have created some advice on responsible gaming which we recommend you read.
MANAGING YOUR PLAY
For players who enjoy gambling frequently, it is not uncommon to overspend your budget some of the time.
We advise that specific budget plans be made to ensure your gambling expenditure is affordable.
Sometimes people deny the extent of their own problems and seek help only in crisis.
Ask yourself honestly whether you have a problem and if you think you might have a problem, set yourself the goal of stopping gambling for two weeks or a month as a test. If you are unable to achieve this, you could have a problem and might benefit from discussing your situation with a counsellor.
Genting actively supports the charities “Remote Gambling Trust” (RGT) and “Remote Gambling Association” (RGA) who will assist you, should you need it their details can be found here, http://www.responsiblegamblingtrust.org.uk/ and http://www.rga.eu.com/
