BonusFreeSlots.com Terms and Conditions
IntroductionCustomers can create, access, and use interactive gaming accounts at BonusFreeSlots.com ("Accounts"). Personal accounts are available to people who meet the Section 3 eligibility requirements for location, age, and other factors. Please read the Terms of Service for information on interactive gaming restrictions.
This Terms of Service Agreement ("Agreement") is made in the name of Bonus Free Slots Thoroughbred Playing Association, LLC ("Licensee"), Online Entertainment, LLC ("Service Provider"), and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, members, developers, and partners ("the Company", "we", or "us"). The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (the "Board") granted Licensee a license to conduct interactive gaming with Pennsylvania residents who are eligible and registered.
This Agreement governs your Account's creation and access, the use of your Account for interactive gaming, your access and use of BonusFreeSlots.com, and your ability to participate in interactive gaming on BonusFreeSlots.com (collectively, the "Services"). "BonusFreeSlots.com" encompasses all associated web pages, interactive features, applications, widgets, blogs, call center, and mobile applications, as well as their contents.
By using the Services, you agree to the terms of this Agreement. You may not use the Services if you do not agree to the terms of this Agreement. You must follow any posted guidelines or policies when using certain services or features or making purchases on the Services (including, without limitation, all posted rules and requirements for each individual wagering game such as the rules of poker). All such guidelines or policies are incorporated into this Agreement by reference, and you agree to follow them. All applicable laws and regulations govern the availability of the Services and your Account.
This Agreement contains provisions governing how claims against you and us are resolved (see Section 23 below), including an obligation to arbitrate disputes. Unless you opt out in accordance with Section 23 below, you must submit any claims you have against the Company to binding arbitration, subject to limited exceptions.
Eligibility for service
You certify that you are competent to sign this Agreement and (ii) at least 21 years old by signing it. You certify that you are not (iii) on any self-exclusion lists or other exclusion lists where individuals are prohibited from participating in in-person, interactive, or pari-mutuel wagering, or (iv) a Board-licensed gaming employee, key employee, or principal. If you access the Services via a mobile device, you may need to enable location services.
You agree to use the Services while you are in Pennsylvania (or in such other U.S. State or territory from which we may permit you to use the Services in the future, in which case such permission shall be posted prominently on the Services). We must inform you that engaging in interactive wagering through the Services from outside the Commonwealth is a federal offense unless authorized by the Board or a reciprocal agreement. Wagering on the Services is prohibited in Pennsylvania, either by the Board or by law.
You must comply with all applicable laws, statutes, and regulations in order to use the Services. We will always check your eligibility. We reserve the right to limit the availability of the Services in Pennsylvania without notice and at our sole discretion. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to terminate the Services in whole or in part at any time.
Offers, promotions, and bonuses
All promotions, bonuses, or special offers made available to Account Holders through the Services are subject to the express terms of the bonus as well as promotion-specific terms and conditions. Any bonus that has been credited to your Account must be used in accordance with these terms. You agree to the terms of a promotion, bonus, or special offer on the Services by accepting it. We reserve the right to cancel any promotion, bonus, or special offer. Bonus funds and winnings are only converted to cash in accordance with the terms of the bonus and the promotion. Under certain promotions, bonuses, or special offers, unconverted bonus funds may be forfeited.
If we believe you cheated, colluded with another User or Users, engaged in fraudulent or unlawful activity, or otherwise attempted to defraud us or other Users, including, without limitation, game manipulation, payment fraud (including use of stolen credit cards, chargebacks, or other payment reversals), betting on all possible outcomes, concealing your physical location, or money laundering, we may suspend or terminate your account. Such activity may also be reported to the Board for investigation. Account debiting or hiring a third-party collection agency may be used as recovery methods. This may have an impact on your credit rating and may necessitate the Company sharing your personal information, including your identity, with the appropriate agencies and reporting any criminal or suspicious activity.
Withholding and tax reporting
When using the Services, you must follow US tax reporting and withholding laws. You agree that the Company is required to report and/or withhold your winnings in accordance with United States tax reporting and withholding laws. The Company may report and/or withhold all winnings subject to reporting and/or withholding, and a copy of the W-2G Form (or other IRS form provided for this purpose) summarizing the information may be issued by the Company for tax purposes no later than when required by applicable law. You give us your irrevocable permission to report your wagering activities to the IRS and any other taxing authority. Your state may require additional income withholding in addition to ours. You must pay all taxes on Service winnings.
You agree to hold the Company harmless from any tax-related claims, demands, liens, or judgments. To satisfy taxing authority claims or liens, you grant the Company a priority lien and security interest in all of your right, title, and interest in wager proceeds.
Account security and accountability
You cannot place bets on behalf of others or allow others to use your Account. Allowing someone under the age of 21 to play interactive games is a crime, and anyone who does so may be barred from playing in Pennsylvania (among other potential penalties). You must also protect your Account from unauthorized use, including your username and password. Any unauthorized use of your Account or other security breach must be reported immediately to Customer Service. Log out after each online and mobile session to protect your Account. You will be automatically logged out after 15 minutes of inactivity (or such other period as may be in effect from time to time) and must re-enter your username and password. After 30 minutes of inactivity, the system will log you out if you do not re-enter your login credentials. If you repeatedly enter incorrect login information, your Account may be locked to prevent unauthorized access. Your Account must be unlocked by Customer Service. Maintain the confidentiality of your username and password.
All bets placed from your Account are your responsibility. Bets placed as a result of unauthorized use of your Account before you took steps to prevent it will not be refunded (i.e. by notifying the Company and changing your log-in information). The Company and its Affiliated Parties (as defined in Section 21) are not responsible if you do not comply with this Section.
Those who have gambling problems can contact 1-800-GAMBLER.
Individuals can set responsible gaming limits, suspend their Accounts for 72 hours, or refuse to create or maintain an Account. Submit a completed online form to be added to the Board's interactive gaming self-exclusion list. Individuals who have signed up for interactive gaming self-exclusion or who have been barred from participating in interactive gaming activities are not permitted to participate in interactive gaming or interactive gaming activities. Violators' winnings will be forfeited, and their interactive gaming accounts will be suspended. More information on the Board's interactive gaming and other Self-Exclusion programs can be found on the websites of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, its Office of Compulsive and Problem Gambling, or a gambling addiction participating provider of the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs.
