Where your Account has been blocked/closed/excluded or for any other queries you may have on the Site and/or your Account you should contact customer services via [email protected], who will, amongst other things, be able to assist you with recovery of any funds in your Account.

6. DEPOSITS AND WITHDRAWALS
In order to place a bet or to conduct any other gaming activity on the Site, you must deposit monies to your Account.
You may only deposit funds to your Account via one of our accepted deposit methods and in accordance with these Terms. Otherwise, we reserve the right to treat any deposit to the Account as invalid and any winnings arising from such invalid deposit as void.
To change your deposit method, please use the facility provided on the Site or send an email request or query to [email protected].
We will not charge you for depositing funds to your Account. However, please note that certain banks, financial institutions or payment service providers may charge you – for example, in circumstances where they classify the deposit as a cash transaction – and accordingly you should satisfy yourself of any such charges in this regard before making a deposit.
Funds deposited to your Account will normally be available as soon as your bank , financial institution or payment service provider authorizes the amount you choose to deposit and are normally shown as "SB" on your deposit receipt or statement.
Funds deposited to your Account do not bear interest as they are deposited as advance payments for intended transactions on the Site.
The minimum amount you can deposit to your Account is 20 lei.
We operate a "net deposit" facility on all Accounts, as explained further in section 5.2. This facility means, amongst other things, that you can, subject to the following, only remove a deposit method from your Account only if the "net deposit" on that deposit method is zero. If you are no longer able to access a deposit method on your Account then please notify [email protected] and, subject to you having added a replacement deposit method to your Account as well as passing a number of our routine security checks (which are likely to entail the supply of additional information and documentation from you so that we may verify that you do indeed no longer have access to that deposit method), we may be able to remove that deposit method from your Account.
You should only deposit funds to your Account for the sole purpose of placing bets in your own name and for your own account. Accordingly, when using a debit card, credit card or online payment service to deposit funds to your Account the name on that card or payment service must match the name on your Account. Furthermore, for cash deposits you will first need to provide proof of identity by presenting your ID document in person where it will be checked against your Account details (ID card or passport). Gameworld reserves the right to suspend or close your Account if we have reasonable grounds to believe that you have deposited funds without any intention to place a bet. In these circumstances, Gameworld will return the funds deposited by you after due diligence requirements as set out in section 22 have been fully complied with. Furthermore, Gameworld may also report this to relevant authorities in compliance with applicable law.
It is your responsibility to inform us without delay in case funds have been credited to your Account in breach of the Terms and accordingly you will be liable for any losing bets made on your Account as a result of the use of funds wrongly credited to your Account and which are subsequently returned.
Please note that it is illegal to deposit funds to your Account which have arisen from illegal sources. Where we have reason to believe that such a deposit is being or has been made, we shall refuse to accept it and either return the funds to you or pass it onto the appropriate legal enforcement authorities.
All bank charges incurred as a result of such chargeback, reversal or other cancellation shall be deducted from your Account.
Subject to our Terms, funds deposited or credited to your Account will remain in your Account unless you submit a withdrawal request for the same (which request must not exceed the balance you are permitted to withdraw from your Account at the time of such request) to be transferred to the deposit method which you used to deposit such funds to your Account. Withdrawal requests can be submitted via the "My Account" section of the Site or by sending an email request to [email protected].
Due to payment card scheme rules and in order to comply with anti-money laundering regulations, withdrawals shall, wherever possible, be processed via the same method and to the same account used for depositing funds to your Account.
For cash withdrawals, you will first need to provide proof of identity by presenting your ID document in person where it will be checked against your Account details (ID card or passport).
Where this is not possible, Gameworld reserves the right to request additional information and documentation from you so that we may carry out our routine security checks and authorize any alternative withdrawal method requested.
Such additional documentation shall include:
A clear and legible copy of the relevant card (front and back) with only the name on the card (where applicable) and the last four digits of the card visible. All other information on the card must be blanked out before sending such copy to us (otherwise the copy will be immediately destroyed by us and you will be required to send another compliant copy)
A copy of the card issuer statement showing the relevant transaction.
Proof of identity (if not already provided).
Prior to receiving a withdrawal, user Accounts are subjected to security checks and customary 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 the illegal claiming of bonuses, Gameworld has the right to retroactively cancel affected bets and to reclaim bonuses or corresponding winnings.
In compliance with the established procedure and according to the conditions and rules approved for organizing the games of chance, we will pay out winnings within a maximum of three (3) working days after receipt of such request. If there are suspicions, before transferring the winnings we have the right to perform any checks that we consider necessary, within a period of ten (10) days, then to perform the transfer or notify the competent authorities.
You shall be responsible for reporting (where applicable) to the authorities and paying any taxes or other such charges that you might be liable for in your local jurisdiction in relation to the financial transactions that you undertake on the Site.
As noted in section 6.1, in order to comply with payment card scheme rules and anti-money laundering regulations, we operate a "net deposit" facility. This means, amongst other things, that you can only withdraw funds from your Account using the deposit method you used to originally deposit those funds to your Account. Accordingly, when you want to withdraw funds from your Account you will see "net deposit" amounts next to each deposit method listed in your Account – meaning that you can only withdraw funds back to the deposit method they originally came from. Where all your "net deposits" are zero (or below) you will be able to withdraw any extra funds in your Account back to any other registered deposit method.
A small number of cards, including International Mastercard and Visa, do not allow us to pay funds back to your credit card or debit card. Accordingly, if you are using one of these cards to deposit funds you will be notified when you attempt to make a withdrawal and we can arrange for your funds to be paid back to a bank account of your choice (subject to receipt of the additional information and documentation noted above).
Subject to bank, financial institution or payment service provider approval, we shall debit or credit immediately to your Account any transactions relating to your Account and you will be able to access immediately from your Account clear information relating to your current balance deposited as well as all other transactions carried out in relation to your Account during the previous 90 days including bets placed winnings, refunds, deposits, top-ups, bonuses and withdrawals (whether or not the transactions/ bets have been determined already or are pending).
You may also find our "Deposit and Withdrawal FAQ" page helpful in addressing any queries you may have on our deposit and withdrawal procedures to/from your Account.
Bonuses may from time to time be placed into your Account as part of a sales promotion/marketing campaign. More details of each bonus scheme will be published on the Site as they are introduced. Bonuses can only be withdrawn if the bonus conditions have been met. The conditions attaching to betting bonuses usually require that bonuses are turned over a number of times as detailed in the terms and conditions of the specific offer. All bonuses issued by us can only be used for playing and may not be transferred or paid out unless and until the relevant bonus conditions have been met. All bonuses have an expiry date. If the relevant bonus conditions are not met by the relevant expiry date, we reserve the right to cancel or debit the bonus credits from your Account. The terms and conditions of any bonus or promotion may specify that the bonus or promotion is restricted to specific criteria. Such criteria may include specified events only, residents of nominated regions, or only be valid for accounts operating in nominated currencies. You should have regard to the restrictions (if any) disclosed in the terms and conditions of any particular promotion.
If a particular event is cancelled and bets are voided, that bet will not contribute towards the fulfilment of bonus requirements. Bonuses and bonus promotions are intended for recreational gamblers only. Professional players or players considered to be abusing the bonus system by any means may have the bonus entitlement revoked at our discretion. Finally, we reserve the right to make changes to or end a bonus or promotion without notice.
Further, if any kind of bonus has been offered by us to your Account but has not been used by you within a period of 90 days thereafter, we shall be entitled without notice to reclaim that bonus and amend your Account accordingly.

However, we shall always notify O.N.J.N. and you (by sending an email to you at the email address you have provided to us as part of your Customer Information) before any revision or amendment to the Terms takes effect. A copy of the up-to-date Terms will always be contained in the link on the Site to the Terms and accordingly should always, in addition, be checked whenever you access the Site - the bottom of this document will also note the last date on which any amendments to the Terms were made.

The same applies to rules and regulations of the various games offered on the Sites as well as rules relating to bonus schemes and conditions.
