The bank guarantee will be secured in case of insolvency. The customer funds will be distributed to the customer in the event of insolvency. This meets the Gambling Commission of Great Britain’s requirements for the segregation of customer funds at the level: medium protection. For more information, please follow this link.
11. Responsible Gaming
11.1. Stsbet is committed to offering its Account Holders a fun, safe, and friendly online gaming experience. However, we also recognise that gambling can cause problems for a minority of individuals. Stsbet actively supports responsible gambling and encourages its Account Holders to make use of a variety of responsible gambling features so as to better manage their Stsbet Account. These features are explained in this Section 11 and we also provide some further Responsible Gaming guidance which you can access here.
Using your Stsbet Account Settings
11.2. An Account Holder may, by using their Stsbet Account settings:
a) set a limit on the amount that they may wager or deposit into their Stsbet Account within a specified period of time;
b) apply a “Time Out” to their Stsbet Account: a temporary block of 24 hours, one week, one month or six weeks in order for clients to take a temporary break from their gambling; and/or
c) apply a “Reality Check” on their Stsbet Account: once set, an alert will be displayed as a reminder that you have been logged into the casino section of your Stsbet Account for the specified period of time. You will then be given the options of continuing, viewing your transactions or stopping and exiting the game. If you wish to change the frequency of your “Reality Check” or remove it, these changes will be applied to the Stsbet Account immediately.
11.3. If Stsbet has reason to believe that an Account Holder's gambling will or may cause them financial or personal difficulties, Stsbet reserves the right to undertake a customer evaluation review which may involve or result in monitoring of the Stsbet Account activity, initiating deposit limits, raising queries with, or requiring documentation from, the Account Holder relating to the source of deposited funds, applying self-exclusions, and/or ultimately closing the Stsbet Account if we consider this to be in the Account Holder's best interests.
11.4. For any Account Holders wishing to limit their gaming, Stsbet offers a self-exclusion option, which allows an Account Holder to close their Stsbet Account immediately for a certain period of time.
11.5. To request a self-exclusion period, you can send:
a) us an email at [email protected];
b) call us on +37 410 510 051; or
c) use the select the “Self-Exclusion” option from the “My Profile” menu in your Stsbet Account, and from there you will be able to select the period for self-exclusion (six months, one year, two years, five years or indefinite).
11.6. The request will be accepted immediately, and you will receive confirmation by email.
11.7. During any period of self-exclusion, we cannot accept deposits or bets. We will close your Stsbet Account and return any remaining balance to you. Any bets/wagers which are 'open' when the period self-exclusion starts will remain active and any winnings will be paid to you on conclusion of the relevant event. Once you have requested a self-exclusion this decision is irrevocable until the defined period of self-exclusion has expired, at which time you may contact Stsbet and either request to resume gambling or set another period of self-exclusion. Stsbet's compliance team will review any request to resume gambling before permission to resume is granted. This review will consider relevant factors including but not limited to: any breaches or attempted breaches of self-exclusion (including attempted or successful opening of accounts with white label partners), and any activity/communications on the self-excluded account. If evidence of any of the above is found, resumption of gambling may be refused and the self-exclusion may be extended. A 24 hour “cooling off” period will apply to those who have been approved to resume gambling.
11.8. In addition to our own self-exclusion tools, Great Britain residents may also apply to self-exclude with GAMSTOP. GAMSTOP is a free self-exclusion service set up to help you avoid online gambling websites which are run by companies licensed by the Gambling Commission of Great Britain and which have signed up to the GAMSTOP service.
11.9. You can self-exclude using GAMSTOP by visiting this website. Please note that your GAMSTOP self-exclusion may take a number of days to become active on our Website. You must ensure that the registration details provided to GAMSTOP match the registration data on your Stsbet Account, otherwise your GAMSTOP self-exclusion may not become active with us. Once your self-exclusion becomes active, you will no longer be allowed to use our Website for the relevant period of time.
11.10. There are also various software products available to assist with the self-exclusion process. For more information, please visit the following sites:
11.11. If you have self-excluded, we will take all reasonable steps to ensure that the self-exclusion procedure is adhered to, including by implementing reasonable measures to prevent you from accessing the Services and to ensure that no promotional material is sent to you. However, you accept that we are in no way responsible towards you or any third party (including in respect of any losses you may incur) if you circumvent the self-exclusion measures we put in place, including by opening any additional/duplicate Stsbet Accounts in which you have changed any registration details.
11.12. When setting up your Stsbet Account – or by using your Stsbet Account settings at any later time - you may choose to impose a ceiling on the maximum deposit you may make within a specified period of time (either daily, weekly or monthly).
11.13. An Account Holder who has set a deposit limit as above may change or revoke the limit using their Stsbet Account settings. Increasing or revoking a limit takes effect 24 hours after the change request. Decreasing a limit takes effect immediately following the change request. Stsbet will not accept a wager from an Account Holder contrary to a limit or exclusion set by themselves as above.
12. Inactive Accounts
12.1. Stsbet will contact an Account Holder no less than 30 days prior to designating a Stsbet Account as an Inactive Account using the Account Holder's last known email address. If no response is received from the Account Holder within 7 days of the date on which Stsbet has attempted contact, the Stsbet Account will be designated as an Inactive Account from that date.
12.2. Before classifying a Stsbet Account as an Inactive Account, Stsbet will attempt to return any outstanding real money balance to the relevant Account Holder using the last payment method used by them to deposit into the Stsbet Account, except where these Terms permit us to withhold payment.
13. Duplicate Accounts
An Account Holder may hold only one Stsbet Account at any one time. If we discover that you hold more than one Stsbet Account we reserve the right to suspend or close all duplicate Stsbet Accounts. We may also exercise our right to suspend or permanently close your Stsbet Account(s) under Section 18.2 below. Any bonuses attributable to any duplicate Stsbet Account(s) will be voided.
14. Closing your Stsbet Account
14.1. An Account Holder may close their Stsbet Account at any time by contacting Stsbet’s Customer Support using the contact details in Section 23 below or as provided in the “FAQ” section on the Website. Any funds in the closed Stsbet Account will be remitted to the Account Holder.
14.2. Account Holders who wish to recover funds held in a closed or suspended Stsbet Account are advised to contact Customer Support using the contact details in Section 23 below.
15. Deposits and Withdrawals
Stsbet reserves the right to run external credit and affordability checks on all Account Holders with authorised third party credit agencies on the basis of the information provided on registration. Customers who deposit with credit/debit cards may be subject to additional identification verification, including submission of identification documents, copy of card, and proof of address.
Deposits and Wagers
15.1. Deposits into a Stsbet Account can be made using any of the payment methods listed in Section 16 below. Procedures, terms and conditions, availability, and duration for deposits may vary depending on the payment method in question.

15.2. Stsbet will not accept a wager from an Account Holder unless there are adequate funds in their Stsbet Account to cover the amount of the wager.
15.3. Depending on the payment method chosen by the Account Holder, minimum and/or maximum deposit limits may apply and if so, these will be displayed in the "Deposit" section of the Stsbet Account.
15.4. You may withdraw your own real money deposits and winnings held in your Stsbet Account at any time provided that:
a) all payments made into your Stsbet Account have been confirmed as cleared and have not been charged-back, reversed or otherwise cancelled;
b) we have completed any verification to our reasonable satisfaction (see Section 8 above). Where we have requested information from you to carry out these checks, any delay in providing this information may cause an additional delay when withdrawing funds; and
c) there is currently no ongoing investigation:
• into a game defect involving a game which you have played which requires a temporary freeze on withdrawal of funds; or
• where we have reason to believe you may have engaged in an illegal or Prohibited Activity which could entitle us to withhold funds in accordance with Section 18.1 below.
15.5. All withdrawals (wherever possible) will be processed back to the same payment method used to make a deposit on the Stsbet Account. Where we cannot process a payment back to the originating payment method, we will contact you to arrange for withdrawals to be processed back to an alternative payment method in your name and we may request documentary evidence such as identity documentation and bank statements to verify the alternative payment method before such a withdrawal may be processed.
15.6. In the case of a withdrawal being made for the first time, a large withdrawal, or changes being made to payment options, we may take additional security measures to ensure that you are the rightful recipient of the withdrawal. In these instances, copies of identification documents may be required before payment can be made. These measures are in place to protect our customers and may result in a slight delay.
15.7. Stsbet reserves the right to charge the Account Holders a fee when they withdraw funds from their Stsbet Account. These fees vary according to the payment method used for the withdrawal. The fees we impose on withdrawal represent a reasonable estimate of the costs incurred by us in processing that withdrawal.
16. Methods of Payment
16.1. Stsbet provides its clients with many payment options, the current list of which at any given time will be listed on the relevant page(s) of the Website.
16.2. Deposits may, from time to time, be partially and/or fully declined by the relevant payment solution provider or a financial institution. Stsbet’s personnel have no control over this, nor do they have any knowledge of the reasons for any deposits being declined.

17.2. In the event and to the extent of a conflict between these Terms and the promotion- or competition- specific terms and conditions, the promotion- or competition- specific terms and conditions will prevail.
18. Termination/Suspension of Stsbet Accounts

a) if you have engaged in illegal activity, Stsbet is under no obligation to refund to you any money that may be in your Stsbet Account; and
b) if we discover or have reasonable grounds to believe that you have participated in any Prohibited Activities then we reserve the right to withhold all or part of the balance and/or recover from your Stsbet Account deposits, payouts, bonuses, and/or any winnings that are attributable to those Prohibited Activities.
18.2. We may suspend your Stsbet Account where we have reason to believe that you have engaged or are likely to engage in any Prohibited Activity and your Stsbet Account will remain suspended while the matter is investigated.

In such circumstances, your details may be passed on to any applicable regulatory authority, regulatory body or any other relevant external third parties.
a) if you have more than one active Stsbet Account;
b) if the name registered on your Stsbet Account does not match the name on the financial/bank account and/or the credit/debit card(s) used to make deposits on that Stsbet Account;

f) if you are located in any Restricted Jurisdiction;
g) if you have allowed or permitted (whether intentionally or unintentionally) someone else to use your Stsbet Account;

j) if you are found to be colluding, cheating, money laundering or undertaking any kind of fraudulent activity in relation to your Stsbet Account or your use of the Services; or

If the Account Holder misplaces, forgets, loses, or shares with a third party their username and/or password, or is otherwise unable to enter the Website or any Service for any reason other than Stsbet’s error, Stsbet will not be responsible and will not be held liable for any claim regarding that Stsbet Account.
20. Limitation of Liability

Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen.
20.3. If defective digital content which we have supplied to you damages a device or digital content belonging to you and this is caused by our failure to use reasonable care and skill, we will either repair the damage or pay you appropriate compensation. However, we will not be liable for damage which you could have avoided by following our advice to apply an update offered to you free of charge or for damage which was caused by you failing to correctly follow installation instructions or to have in place the minimum system requirements advised by us.

a) we accept no liability for any damages or losses which arise out of or in connection with your use of the Services or the Website; and

20.5. The Services and the Website are provided for personal use only. If you use the Services or the Website for any commercial or business purpose, we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.
20.6. The Services and the Website are provided on an “as is” basis and to the fullest extent permitted by law, we make no warranty or representation in relation to the satisfactory quality, fitness for purpose, completeness or accuracy of the Services or the Website.
21. Errors and Interruptions in Play
21.1. If your participation in the Services is interrupted by an internet or system malfunction and that interruption prevents you from continuing to use the Services after you have placed a wager, Stsbet will take all reasonable steps to ensure that you are able to resume your participation as at the time immediately before the interruption. If this cannot be done for whatever reason, Stsbet will:
a) ensure that the applicable Service is terminated; and
b) refund the amount of the wager to your Stsbet Account.
21.2. Although we will take all reasonable measures to ensure that the Website and Services are free from computer viruses we cannot and do not guarantee that the Website and Services are free of such problems.

However please see Section 20.3 above for details of when we will be liable for defective digital content which we have supplied to you and which damages a device or digital content belonging to you.
21.3. We may temporarily suspend the whole or any part of the Website and/or the Services for any reason at our sole discretion. We may, but will not be obliged to, give you as much notice as is reasonably possible of such suspension.

21.4. If you notice an error or incompleteness on the Website and/or in any of the Services please let us know about it straight away using the contact details provided in Section 23 below. You may not knowingly take advantage of the error or incompleteness and you agree to keep the error or incompleteness confidential.

24.5. Should this not be possible we will explain why and provide a date by which you can expect a full response.
24.6. Stsbet's internal complaints process will be considered at an end if your complaint remains unresolved eight weeks after we first received it (taking into account any times that the ‘clock’ on the time period may have been paused), or if you and Stsbet have reached either deadlock or final position in less than eight weeks. On reaching this point we will write to you with a final letter to explain:
a) the final decision (if one has been reached),
b) that this is the end of our internal complaints process, and
c) how to escalate your complaint to an independent ADR entity if you wish to do so (see Section 25 below.
25. Alternative Dispute Resolution

25.4. The nominated ADR entity will act as an impartial adjudicator on disputes that arise between Stsbet and an Account Holder only when:
a) the Account Holder has made every reasonable effort possible to resolve the dispute before speaking to them – in practice this means that you should go through Stsbet's own internal customer complaint process (set out in Section 24 above) before referring the matter to ADR; and
b) a deadlock regarding the resolution exists.
