1.2. We deem acceptance of the Ts & Cs by you upon your: a) use of the Website or the Services; or b) clicking to acknowledge the agreement with these Ts & Cs when this option is made available to you in the course of registering an account.
1.3. Come on mate, don’t get ahead of yourself. You’ve got plenty of time to grow up! You must be 18 years of age or older to access the Website. Providing a false name, date of birth or address may constitute a criminal offence and at the very least, will result in your account being disabled and any available funds forfeited. This is no joke, and neither is being charged with a criminal offence.
1.4. From time to time, we may make amendments to the Ts & Cs, and will provide a copy of these changes and the new updated Ts & Cs on this page. If you’re 18 years of age or older and eligible to play at Joe Fortune , we think you’re old enough and ugly enough to be responsible for checking this page regularly for updates to the Ts & Cs. If you access this Website or use the Services after the date on which these Ts & Cs have changed, we will deem that you have accepted the updated Ts & Cs. The Ts & Cs will always be labelled clearly with the date of the “Latest Update” displayed at the top of this page.
2. USE OF THE WEBSITE AND SERVICES
2.1. All Website content is designed for non-commercial, personal use only.
2.2. Access to the Website is permitted on a temporary basis, and we reserve the right to withdraw or amend the Service we provide without prior notice. The Joe Fortune Website is updated regularly and is subject to change at any time. By use of the Website, you acknowledge and accept that the specific form and/or nature of the Website or Services may be amended at any time, and that we may cease providing the Services (or any specific features within the Services) to you or to users generally at our sole discretion, without any prior notice. If necessary, we may suspend access to the Website or close it indefinitely. We will not be liable if for any reason the Website is unavailable at any time or for any period. But no worries, as this shall not, of itself, preclude us from returning to you any money that is properly due to you. We may terminate your Account and/or prohibit you from using or accessing the Website or Services (or any portion, aspect or feature of the Services) for any reason, at any time, at our sole discretion. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, we shall have the right to reject any wager or withdraw any Game at our absolute discretion. We will not be liable for any loss whatsoever arising from the cancellation of any Game, including any realisable or perceived loss, for whatever reason, and/or the chance to participate in our casino.
2.3. Mate, please be a grown up! You are solely responsible for checking the laws regarding the use of internet-based casino gaming in the jurisdiction in which you reside.
2.4. We accept no responsibility or liability in any way for any disruptions to internet service or disconnections, and all risk and responsibility rests with you. If you experience disconnection from the game server, the system saves the game at the point of disconnection. When you are able to reconnect, the game can be resumed from the point of disconnection.
3. REGISTRATION AND ACCOUNT CREATION
3.1. Fair is fair, right? You must register an account (“Account”) with us before you can participate in any real money casino games. Pretty standard stuff really, but you must be at least 18 years old in order to register an Account. We reserve the right to disable your Account and request relevant proof of age in order to ensure that you are in fact of legal age to access the service. If proper proof of age is not presented, we further reserve the right to permanently close your Account.
3.2. We allow each individual to open only one Account. One Account only is permitted per household. Multiple Accounts held by any individual are subject to immediate closure, and at our sole discretion, we reserve the right to seize and confiscate any balance of funds in duplicate accounts. Furthermore, you are prohibited from permitting another person to access the Website or Software via your Account without the express permission of Joe Fortune.
3.3. We reserve the right to suspend, disable or teminate your Account at any time in our sole discretion. Unless otherwise directed by the Gaming Commission in accordance with the relevant provisions of the Regulations, all decisions regarding the opening, maintenance and closing of Accounts rests with us and any decisions we take regarding any aspect of the Software, your participation in or the playing of the Games, or any aspect of an Account is final.
3.4. By choosing to register an Account, you are required to provide your full name, current address, date of birth, email address and telephone number. With effect from 1 April, 2020, new players will be required to validate their mobile phone numbers before any promotion or bonuses will be made available to them. If your identity can’t be verified, you may be required to submit additional information or documentation. You will also be required to answer one or more security questions, after which you will receive a confirmation email. You may also be required to update the information or data, or to present additional items as part of our ongoing efforts to prevent illegal and fraudulent acitivities, and/or to comply with our Anti-Money Laundering policy and protocols.
3.5. Please be fair dinkum with us. All information that you provide either when you register an Account or at any time thereafter must be honest, accurate, and verifiable. By submitting this information/data to us, you automatically consent to us sharing it with third-party identification and age verification services so we can authenticate your details as truthful and match it against your government-issued ID. We reserve the right to use such third-party verification services at any given time during the lifespan of your Account at Joe Fortune. If we find that you have provided false information, or if you are unwilling to provide documents upon request, we reserve the right to terminate your Account, and all activity within the Account will be deemed invalid including, without limitation, the forfeit of potential winnings.
3.6. You will be assigned a numerical Account ID, plus you may also sign in to your Account via your email address. Please treat your user Account ID and password as private and confidential and do not disclose any part of them to anyone. We have the right to disable any user Account ID or password whether chosen by you or assigned by us at any time, if in our opinion you have failed to comply with any part of the provisions of these Ts & Cs. You are solely responsible for ensuring that no one else (particularly, but without limitation to, those who share your Internet connection) is able to make use of your Account ID (or email address) and password. You are responsible for all transactions made within your Account, whether or not you knew or consented to such transactions.
3.7. Your Account will be marked as dormant if you have not made a deposit, a withdrawal, or engaged in any gaming activity for a period of 18 months. After 17 months of inactivity, we will send you an email (to the email address on file) notifying you that your Account balance will be set to zero 30 days after receiving this notice. If the Account still remains inactive following notification, the Account balance will be zeroed out at the 18 month mark.
3.8. By registering an Account, you agree that we may investigate your Account and its associated gaming activity at any time to ensure compliance with these Ts & Cs, and to ensure that no improper or illegal activity has taken place including, but without limitation, fraudulent activity or activity that contravenes our Anti-Money Laundering policy and protocols. If we deem that your Account has been involved in any of the above, we are entitled to use any and all funds in your Account to meet any costs, expenses or liabilities reasonably incurred in conducting such investigation. We will refund to your Account any such fee if the inquiry subsequently rules in your favour.
4. ACCOUNT DEPOSITS, REPAYMENTS AND FORFEITURE
4.1. Going into debt for your gaming is not cool! We don’t extend a line of credit to our players under any circumstances. You will not be permitted to participate in or play the Games unless you have sufficient funds in your Account. We never allow Accounts to become overdrawn.
4.2. To deposit funds in your Account, you are required to submit certain information as outlined by the payment method provider you have chosen to make your deposit with. Once the required information has been supplied, you will be able to make a Deposit Request from the cashier page of your Account.
4.3. If you choose to play any Games or participate in any event for money, your money will be deposited with and held by us or a third party service provider(s) pending the outcome of the relevant event or Game. Each of the above arrangements is in accordance with these Ts & Cs, and the gambling and other laws of the Territory of Curaçao (including, without limitation, the Regulations).
4.4. We reserve the right to set a limit on the amount of funds you are permitted to deposit. Contact Joe’s Customer Support Team should you wish to request this limit be changed.
4.5. Neither we nor our service providers are under any obligation to accept your Deposit Request, and we shall inform you if we elect to reject it. If your Deposit Request is accepted, we will ensure that funds equal to the amount you requested are credited to your Account within a reasonable timeframe.
4.6. We reserve the right to recover any fees we covered on deposits without prior notice, if little or no play is made between deposit and withdrawal.
4.7. If any deposit is subject to a dispute or is otherwise deemed uncollectible for any reason, any and all winnings generated from play conducted in your Account from the time of the deposit in question until its reversal or dispute shall be invalidated, forfeited, and deducted from your Account balance. In addition, the amount of the initial failed deposit will be forfeited and deducted from your Account balance. In the event that, following such deductions, your Account balance is in a negative balance; you expressly acknowledge and agree that such negative balance shall constitute an uncontestable debt payable by you to us, due and payable immediately. You expressly acknowledge and agree that, in the event of non-payment of such debt, we may assign such debt to one or more collections agencies, who shall have the legal right to pursue such assigned debt using any or all available legal remedies. Note that following the assignment of such debt to a collections agency, the resolution of such debt and any legal processes associated therewith are not within our control and must be negotiated or resolved directly with the collections agency.
4.8. The withdrawal of money won is subject to Joe Fortune’s verification procedures. This can include but is not limited to providing proof of address and government-issued ID. If we are satisfied that you have complied with the Ts & Cs, all Anti Money Laundering and fraud-screening requirements, and all rules relating to the Games and any related bonuses, the payout shall be made to you. The manner in which the withdrawal is processed may be restricted, depending on the means by which the initial deposit(s) was/were made to the applicable Account. At our discretion, and without limiting the foregoing, we reserve the right to conclude your withdrawal request by an alternative method or process. If, for any reason, a payout request cannot be approved, a Customer Support Rep will contact you.
4.9. Unless otherwise stated in the rules of individual Activities, Games, or Bonus promotions, any bonus funds that are credited to your Account (whether as a result of a prize, promotion, redemption, or any other reason) shall be subject to rollover requirements (outlined in the Ts & Cs of the Bonus) before the bonus funds (and any associated winnings from the Bonus) can be withdrawn. Unless otherwise stated in the bonus terms, no deposit bonuses under $100 will have a maximum cashout amount of $125, and no deposit bonuses over $100 will have a max cashout equal to 1X the bonus.
5. RESPONSIBLE GAMING
5.1. Hey kiddies, go back to playing your XBox please! Under no circumatances may an Account be created by any user that is not of legal age to gamble, i.e. under the age of 18, nor shall anyone under the age of 18 be permitted to play Games. In the event we identify an Account has been improperly opened or used by someone under the age of 18, we shall confiscate any winnings and close the Account.
5.2. Mate, remember gaming is just a bit of fun. The Website and the Services are intended solely for recreational and entertainment purposes, and we’re committed to giving players the ability to self-manage their limits and gameplay. If gambling is no longer fun, or it’s negatively impacting your personal or professional life, please refer to our resources available and seek counselling.
5.3. We have processes in place for you to manage and limit your deposits on the Website on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Note, should you choose to self-impose a deposit limit, and then want to increase or change that limit, it will take a minimum of 24 hours before we will implement the removal or increase of the limit.
5.4. If you believe you have a gambling problem, you have the option to set your play limits to zero or close the Account. We ask that when contacting Customer Support to request closure of your Account that you disclose that it is due to a gambling problem. This will allow us to distinguish between permanent closure of your Account and a temporary “cooling off” request (see section 5.5.). Also note, regardless of the nature of your request to close your Account, we will make every reasonable effort to prevent you from opening additional accounts. Should you succeed in circumventin our efforts in this regard, you accept full responsibility for any losses incurred.
5.5. We offer the option of temporarily closing your Account for a specified period to allow you to “cool off”. To do so contact Customer Support, and we will make your Account inaccessible during the time period requested. It will remain disabled for use until we receive written request from you after the “cool off” period has elapsed. Self-imposed Account closures that are not identified as being imposed due to perceived problem gambling are not subject to permanent closure as noted in Section 5.4.
6. INTEGRITY OF PLAY
6.1. If through the course of an investigation we have reasonable cause to believe that criminal or any other suspicious activities are occurring through one or more Accounts (including, without limitation, a suspicion of attempted money-laundering or fraud), we expressly reserve the right to close such Accounts and/or report such activity to the Gaming Commission and/or other applicable regulatory bodies or services. All Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings) shall be forfeited.
6.2. If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that a player has engaged in fraudulent, unlawful, dishonest or improper activity (including, without limitation, the provision of false or deliberately misleading information), we reserve the right to immediately terminate or deny a player access to their Account. In such event, all Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings) shall be forfeited and we reserve the right to disclose information (including the identity of the player) to applicable parties including, but not limited to, the Gaming Commission, banks, credit card companies and/or any person or entity that has the legal right to such information, and/or is taking legal action against such player.
6.3. All actions on the Website must be executed by players via the supplied user interface. We will take any measures necessary to ensure that all robot software or programs designed to simulate real gameplay will be detected and prevented from accessing the Website. Any Accounts associated with such activity will be subject to review and possible termination. If, in our reasonable discretion, we determine that an Account is employing such software, the Account will be disabled and all Account balances (including both deposits and any winnings) shall be forfeited.
6.4. Bonus programs are intended for recreational players only. Pro players or players considered, in our sole discretion, to be abusing the bonus system by any means, may have bonuses revoked and be subject to further sanctions. Bonus abuse is defined as, but not limited to, players cashing out for the purposes of re-depositing or creating multiple Accounts that they use themselves. Sanctions may be in the form of increased rollover requirements or total loss of bonus privileges for the offending Account, as well as any linked Accounts. We reserve the right to restrict eligibility for special offers and bonuses when necessary including, but not limited to, placing geographic restrictions on match bonuses due to bonus abuse.
6.5. We do not allow the mixing of No-Deposit bonuses (e.g. Free Chips, Free Spins, Cashback/Insurance Bonuses etc.) and deposits. If a deposit is made while a No Deposit Bonus is active, the wagering requirements and maximum allowed cash-out of the No Deposit bonus will still apply. The deposit amount will be credited to your balance, however the deposit amount is not considered to be in active play and any subsequent winnings are subject to the wagering requirements and maximum allowed cash-out of the No Deposit bonus until your balance is equal to or less than the deposit amount plus any existing balance available prior to the bonuses redemption.
6.6. Don’t be a greedy bastard! You’ll get lots of chance for free money with Joe! Players cannot redeem multiple free bonuses consecutively. If you have redeemed one No Deposit bonus a real money deposit needs to have been made in the interim for you to be eligible to redeem a second No Deposit bonus. Redeeming two or more No Deposit bonuses in a row can result in the removal of subsequent winnings.
6.7. Loyalty/Comp/Reward Points are given as a reward for deposits and the resulting gameplay. They cannot be gained from gameplay resulting from No-Deposit money. If any Loyalty/Comp/Reward Points are accrued from promo money not tied to a deposit, they are subject to removal without prior notice.
6.8. In our reasonable discretion, if we determine that an Account attempted to or actually did exploit any hardware or software error, malfunction, bug, or other vulnerability, we shall immediately close the Account, and all Account balances, including both deposits and all winnings, shall be forfeited. In such events, we expressly reserve the right to initiate civil legal proceedings and report such activities to relevant authorities in support of criminal investigations and charges, as appropriate.
6.9. In cases where playthrough or other criteria as set out in individual bonus Ts & Cs are not met within 6 months of the initial bonus redemption, any remaining bonus funds and associated winnings will be forfeited. We reserve the right to void any wagers and/or winnings obtained as a result of hardware/software error, malfunction or human error.
6.10. Unfinished Games – If your game round is disrupted or closed, all game information, placed bets and incomplete casino games will remain active until you re-open the game. Unresolved bets placed and incomplete casino games will become void after 60 days and will be forfeited.
