3. You cannot deposit funds into your Poolbet account and decide to withdraw it. You can only payout from your winnings.

6. All payouts will be audited before processing. If audit shows a violation of our Terms & Conditions, rigging or fraud, such payouts will not be processed and in most cases such winning bets would be voided.

7. We operate a closed loop policy which enforces the withdrawal of funds back to their source. You will be required to level off any deposits made with the same amount of withdrawals before you can withdraw any excess funds back via another payment source. This policy protects both us, and our customers against fraud and money laundering.

8. We are unable to issue you a refund on any funds deposited in your Account. If you decide that you wish to withdraw the funds in your Account, you must do so using the same payment method when you deposited the funds. You will be required to level off any deposits made with the same amount of withdrawals using the original payment method before any additional funds can be withdrawn to other registered payment methods.

9. Poolbet does not charge for deposits made by Debit/Credit Card, however, please be aware that some card issuers consider betting transactions as ‘cash’ payments and therefore may charge you a cash advance fee. Please check with your card issuer for further details.

Please note that it is the responsibility of the Punter to research on the games they intend to bet on and how its particular rules might influence their betting decisions

In the case of any blatant errors in prices transmitted (including for example where the price being displayed is materially different from those available in the general market and/or the price is clearly incorrect, depending on all of the circumstances), Bets will be settled at the correct price at the time of acceptance (or the Starting Price in the case of horse-racing, whichever is the greater).
