6. DEPOSITS AND WITHDRAWALS
In order to place a bet or to perform any gambling activity on the website in “real money” mode, you must deposit funds into your Account.
You may only deposit funds in your Account through one of the deposit methods accepted by us and in accordance with these Terms. Otherwise, we reserve the right to treat any deposit in the Account as invalid and any gains arising from such invalid deposits as void.
The game account can only be replenished through a payment instrument issued in the name of the game account holder, except for the replenishments made through the betting agencies.
We will apply no fee for depositing funds in your Account, except for the fee provided by the provisions of art. 53 of the Government Emergency Ordinance No. 114/2018. However, please take note that some banks, financial institutions or payment service providers may charge you and as a result you must have such fees before making a deposit.
The funds deposited in your Account will normally be available once the bank, financial institution or payment service provider authorizes the chosen amount. Authorization is most often instant, but you have to consider that the payment methods such as “bank transfer” have a longer processing time of funds.
The funds deposited in your Account bear no interest because they are deposited as advance payments for the intended transactions on the Website.
The minimum amount you can deposit in your Account is RON 20.
You may only deposit funds to your Account for the sole purpose of placing bets on your behalf and for your benefit. The amounts with which they are deposited must be rolled over at least once before any withdrawal.
Also, in the case of replenishing your Account with cash, you must prove your identity by submitting the identity document (identity card or passport) in order to be checked against the details of your Account. MEGABET INTERNATIONAL reserves the right to suspend or close your Account if we have reasonable grounds to believe that you have deposited funds without the intention of placing a bet. In these circumstances, MEGABET INTERNATIONAL will return the funds deposited by you after the due diligence requirements set out in section 23 have been fulfilled. Furthermore, MEGABET INTERNATIONAL may also report this to the competent authorities in accordance with the applicable law.
It is your responsibility to inform us immediately if funds have been credited to your account in violation of the Terms and, consequently, you will be responsible for any unearned bets made in your account, as a result of using the funds wrongly credited to your account and which are subsequently returned.
Please note that it is illegal to deposit funds from illegal sources into your account. If we have reason to believe that such a deposit has been or is being executed, we will refuse to accept it and either we will return the funds to you or we will inform the competent authorities with the application of the law. In this regard, MEGABET INTERNATIONAL may request documents to prove the source of funds, in accordance with the provisions of the anti-money laundering legislation.
All bank charges incurred as a result of this return, reversal or other cancellation will be deducted from your Account.
MEGABET INTERNATIONAL may at any time refuse to make financial transactions for depositing funds without providing additional reasons. If you are unable to make any deposits, please contact us.
Until a withdrawal request is made, the existing funds will remain in the game account balance. The maximum amount that can be withdrawn cannot exceed the balance existing in the actual balance of the game account. The withdrawal requests can be addressed through “My Account” section of the website.
To comply with the legal regulations against money laundering, where possible, withdrawals will be processed by the same method and in the same account initially used for depositing funds to your Account. If another withdrawal method is used, you must first make a deposit with that method and provide all the documents requested by us in order to verify the payment method chosen.
When the withdrawal of funds from your Account is made with cash, you must prove your identity by submitting the identity document (identity card or passport) in order to be checked against the details of your Account.
Where necessary, MEGABET INTERNATIONAL reserves the right to request additional information and documents from you in order to perform routine security checks and to authorize any alternative withdrawal method requested.
Such additional documents will include, inter alia, the following:
• Clear and eligible copy of the relevant card (front and back), only with the name on the card (where applicable) and the last four digits visible of the card. All other information on the card will be covered before sending this copy to us (otherwise, the copy will be immediately de-stroyed by us and you will be required to send another compliant copy).
• Copy of the bank statement indicating the relevant transaction.
• Proof of identity (if not provided).
Prior to receiving a withdrawal, the Accounts are subjected to regular security checks and audit procedures to prevent possible fraudulent actions.
If we have reasonable grounds to believe that you have violated the Terms, including, but not limited to, illegal claiming of bonuses, MEGABET INTERNATIONAL is entitled to suspend the game accounts involved and to seize the funds from the game account in order to cover the damages.
In accordance with the procedure established in the conditions and rules approved for conducting games of chance, we will make the payment to you no later than three (3) business days. In case there are suspicions, before transferring the winnings we are entitled to carry out, within ten (10) working days, the checks we consider necessary, after which we will make the payment or notify the competent bodies. If such an investigation requires more than ten (10) working days to be completed, you will be notified.
A small number of cards, including International Mastercard and Visa, do not allow us to pay funds back to the credit or debit card. Consequently, if you use one of these deposit cards you will be informed when you try to withdraw and we will provide an alternative payment method, which is available at that time on the gameworld.ro website.
As a result of the approval by the bank, financial institution or payment service provider, we will immediately debit or credit to you any transaction related to your Account and you may access immediately from your Account information related to the current balance, as well as all other transactions carried out regarding your Account during the previous 90 days, including winnings placed, refinancing, deposits, completions, bonuses and withdrawals (regardless of whether the transactions/bets have already been determined or are pending).
You can also refer to the “Deposit/withdrawal FAQ page” for any questions you may have regarding the deposit and withdrawal procedure to/from your Account.
Occasionally, we will offer bonuses as part of the promotional/ marketing campaign.
More details about each bonus scheme will be published on the Website as they are introduced. Bonuses can only be withdrawn if the bonus conditions are met.
Bonus conditions usually require bonuses be rolled over a number of times, as detailed in the terms and conditions of the specific offer.
If, a sum is credited in the Player Account as part of a promotion, the Player may only use the amount to place bets on the website. The Player is not allowed to withdraw his money, unless the rules of the promotion so provide. We reserve the right to take back these amounts, if the Player does not use them to place one or several bets on websites during the period specified in the promotion.
All bonuses issued by us may only be used for the games and may not be transferred or paid unless the relevant bonus conditions are met.
All bonuses have an expiration date. If the relevant bonus conditions are not met by the relevant expiration date, we reserve the right to cancel or debit the bonus from your Account as well as the winnings resulting from the bets placed with bonus amounts.
The terms and conditions of any bonus or promotion may provide that the bonus or promotion is restricted to specific criteria: such criteria may only include specific events. You will consider the restrictions (if any) provided for in the terms and conditions of any special promotion.
We reserve the right to offer a certain bonus to a particular customer or group of customers.
Deposits through electronic wallets are not eligible to request deposit bonuses, including the welcome offer or any other promotional code.
If a special event is canceled and the bets are void, that bet will not contribute to the fulfillment of the bonus requests. Players who abuse the bonus system by any means whatsoever may have the bonus revoked at our discretion. Finally, we reserve the right to make changes or finalize a bonus or a promotion when we deem it necessary.
Moreover, if any kind of bonus was offered by us to your Account, but was not used by you within 90 days as of this event, we reserve the right to recover that bonus and change your Account accordingly, without prior notification.
The types of bonuses offered can be in the form of:
• Bonus subject to circulation conditions;
• Bonus points – loyalty points;
• Free bets on certain events, minimum odds or special conditions;
• Odds multiplier depending on the number of events on a ticket;
• Increasing the odds/profit;
• Free spins;
• Betting insurance;
• Stake returns – loss.
In the case of stake returns – loss bonuses, the Organizer may decide to return the stakes or amounts played, in whole or in a certain percentage as a bonus whose roll over conditions may be different as provided in the specific terms and conditions.
Each type of bonus above will be defined and regulated by a specific regulation which will specify: the expiration conditions, the roll over conditions, the cancellation conditions, the granting conditions and any other specific conditions.
The granting of bonuses is restricted to an account holder except for the campaigns that explicitly specify that the bonus can be accessed several times by a player. At the same time, they are limited to a single user, IP address, computer device, family, residential address, telephone number, e-mail address and environments in which computers are used jointly (household, work place, etc.).
If a customer violates the provisions regarding the bonuses, MEGABET INTERNATIONAL reserves the right to close the game account/games accounts involved in the fraudulent action.

28. TRANSFER OF RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS
You may not transfer, assign, charge or dispute in any way, any part or all of the Terms or any of your rights or obligations arising out of the Terms, without our prior written consent.
29. EVENTS BEYOND OUR CONTROL
We will not be liable for any non-performance or delay in the performance of any obligations in the Terms that are caused by events beyond our reasonable control (“Force Majeure Event”). Our performance, according to the Terms, is considered suspended during the Force Majeure. If the event continues, we will have an extension during this period. We will use our available means to complete the Force Majeure Event or to find a solution through which our obligations, under the Terms, may be carried out despite the Force Majeure Event. A Force Majeure event includes any act, event, non-occurrence, omission or accident, beyond our control and includes in particular (but not limited to) the following:
• Strikes, blockades or other industrial actions;
• Civil unrest, public disorder, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of attack, war (whether declared or not), threat or preparation of war;
• Fire, explosion, flood, earthquake, landslide, epidemic or other natural disasters;
• The impossibility to use the railway, ships, airplanes, motorized transport or other means of public or private transport;
• The impossibility to use the public or private telecommunication network;
• The acts, decrees, legislation, regulations or restrictions of any government.
If we do not insist, at any time, on the strict performance of any of the obligations under the Terms, if we do not exercise a certain right or remedy to which we are entitled under the Terms, this will not constitute a waiver of these rights and will not release you of the obligation to be in accordance with such obligations. A waiver on our part of any right will not constitute a waiver of any other right. No waiver from us regarding the Terms will be effective unless expressed as a waiver and is communicated to you in writing, in accordance with section 26 above.
31. SEVERABILITY CLAUSE
If any of the Terms is determined by any authority to be invalid, illegal or inapplicable to any extent, this term, condition or provision, will be separated from the other terms, conditions or provisions that will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
32. ENTIRE AGREEMENT
The terms represent the entire contract between us and prevail over the previous contracts, understandings or agreements related to the Website and Services. Each of us acknowledges that, by applying these terms, none of us relies on any statement, representation, insurance or guarantee (“Representation”) of a person, other than that expressly set out in the Terms, as often as necessary. Each of us agrees that the only rights or remedies available to us, arising in connection with the Representation, will be a breach of the contract, as provided in the Terms. Nothing in this section and these Terms shall exclude or limit the liability for fraud.
33. OUR RIGHT TO REVISE AND CHANGE THE TERMS
We are entitled to revise or change the Terms whenever necessary, at our discretion, but this will largely reflect changes in market conditions that affect our business, changes in technology, changes in payment methods, changes in relevant laws and changes in the capabilities of our system. However, we will always notify O.N.J.N. and you (by sending an email to you at the email address you provided us as part of the Customer Information) before any revision or change of the Terms comes into effect. A copy of the updated Terms will always be contained in the link on the Website for the Terms and, as a result, it must always be verified every time you access the Website. – The last date when the amendments to the Terms were made will also be at the bottom of the document. If any such revision or change may not be accepted by you, the only way is to close your Account and cancel the Terms. Continuing to use any part of the Website or the Services after the date when the Terms entered into force will be considered as acceptance thereof.
The relationship between us and you, and any other persons who undertake, on our part, to deliver the Website and the Services, will not be considered at any time as a partnership, trust arrangement, joint venture, agency or legal relationship of any kind.
Although the terms have been translated into several languages to help the Website users and they officially reflect the same principles, the language of the Terms is Romanian and as a result, in the event of non-compliance, ambiguity or conflict between the Romanian translation of the Terms and any other language into which the Terms have been translated, the translation into Romanian will prevail. The same applies both to the rules and regulations of the different games offered on the Website, as well as to the rules related to bonus schemes and conditions.
36. LAW AND JURISDICTION
The terms and any dispute or claim arising in connection therewith, their subject or formulation (including non-contractual disputes or claims), shall be governed by the Romanian laws. Any dispute or claim arising out of the connection with the Terms or formulation thereof (including non-contractual disputes or claims) will be subject exclusively to the jurisdiction of the Romanian courts of justice (with the exception of applying where the jurisdiction will not be exclusive).
