- Three months.
- During the timeout, you will not be able to log-in or receive any marketing information from us.
- We want everyone to enjoy playing our Games. However, we do recognise that some customers may wish to restrict or even cease playing. We, therefore, provide a self-exclusion facility that allows customers to close their accounts for periods of:
- Six Months;
- One Year; or
- Five years;
- You can select a self-exclusion period via the Responsible Gambling section in the game client or on the Website (you need to be logged in) and the self-exclusion will be applied immediately. Alternatively, you may contact our Customer Service Support team directly by email to [email protected]. Where a self-exclusion request is sent by email, it may take up to 24 hours to take effect.
- When choosing to self-exclude, you will not qualify to receive any bonuses or promotions we may offer during your self-exclusion period.
- Within two days of choosing to self-exclude, you will also be excluded from any marketing material that we may send. No further marketing material will be sent until the self-exclusion period is over, and you have requested to return to the Website.
- Once you choose to self-exclude, your account will be closed for the duration of the selected period, and you will no longer be able to log-in to your account or access the Games. We will return your remaining account balance in accordance with our Withdrawal Policy.
- If you choose to reopen your account at the end of your self-exclusion period, you will be required to contact the customer support team via [email protected] to discuss your proposed return from self-exclusion. You will then be given a minimum 24-hour cooling off period before your account is reactivated. Whilst the 24-hour cooling off period is in place you will be given the option to cancel the reactivation.
