    3. Should you choose to return to us as a Customer before five years of inactivity has lapsed you may request to reclaim the administrative fee by contacting [email protected]

    1. Your initial deposit must be made via Trustly; at which time they will conduct KYC checks on you. After successful completion of your initial deposit, you may then deposit funds into your Account by any of the methods set out on our Website.

Withdrawals of deposits that have not been rolled over (risked) at least one time may be refused until sufficient due diligence has been collected, including source of income and source of funds.

You are responsible for your own bank charges that you may incur due to depositing funds with us. Exceptions to this rule are outlined in our "Payment Options" pages.

    4. All withdrawals must be made to the original debit card, credit card, bank account, or method of payment used to make the payment to your pinnacle.se Account. We may allow you to withdraw to a payment method from which your original deposit did not originate. This will always be subject to additional security checks.
    5. Should you wish to withdraw funds but your Account is either inaccessible, dormant, locked or closed, please contact our Customer Service Department at [email protected].

9. Payment Transactions and Processors

    1. You are fully responsible for paying all monies owed to us. You must make all payments to us in good faith and not attempt to reverse a payment made or take any action which will cause such payment to be reversed by a third party in order to avoid a liability legitimately incurred. You will reimburse us for any chargebacks, denial or reversal of payment you make and any loss suffered by us as a consequence thereof.
    2. We reserve the right to use third party electronic payment processors and or merchant banks to process payments made by you and you agree to be bound by their terms and conditions providing they are made aware to you and those terms do not conflict with these Terms. It should be noted that we are not responsible for, nor do we have any control over, the processing times of third party payment processors and or merchant banks.

11. Errors and Exceptional Circumstances

    1. In the event of an error or malfunction of our system or processes, all bets are rendered void. You are under an obligation to inform us immediately as soon as you become aware of any error with the Service. We reserve the right to void all games/bets in question and take any other action to correct such errors.
    2. We make every effort to ensure that we do not make errors in posting lines. However, if as a result of human error or system problems a bet is accepted at an odd that is: materially different from those available in the general market at the time the bet was made; or clearly incorrect given the chance of the event occurring at the time the bet was made, then we reserve the right to cancel or void that bet, or to cancel or void a bet made after an event has started and give refunds to players.
    3. We have the right to recover from you any amount overpaid and to adjust your Account to rectify any mistake. An example of such a mistake might be where a price is incorrect or where we enter a result of an event incorrectly. If there are insufficient funds in your Account, we may demand that you pay us the relevant outstanding amount relating to any erroneous bets. Accordingly, we reserve the right to cancel, reduce or delete any pending plays, whether placed with funds resulting from the error or not.
    4. Pinnacle has the right to limit, cancel, and refuse bets in case they are considered to be too large or if we see that the betting pattern of the player takes place in such a way that the system is being abused.
    5. The Company shall accept no liability for any damages or losses which are deemed or alleged to have arisen out of or in connection with the Website or its content as a result of any persons’ misuse of the Website or its content.

12. General Rules

    1. If a sport-specific rule contradicts a general rule, then the general rule will not apply. The winner of an event will be determined on the date of the event's settlement; we do not recognise protested or overturned decisions for betting purposes. The result of an event suspended after the start of competition will be decided according to the betting rules specified for that sport by us.
    2. Where a game is suspended or abandoned, it will be considered terminated if not finalised within 90 days. Please refer to the rules specific to the sport bet on to determine how and when your bet will be determined.
    3. All results posted shall be final after 72 hours and no queries will be entertained after that period of time. Within 72 hours after results are posted, the company will only reset/correct the results due to human error, system error or mistakes made by the referring results source.
    4. If, for any reason, the Company is unable to validate the result of an event within 72 hours of its completion, all unsettled bets on markets relating to that event will be void.
    5. If, for any reason, a bet is accepted after a fixture has begun (other than clearly indicated as Live In-Play betting), the bet will have action unless a material advantage has been gained. Pinnacle reserves the right to void the bet if it determines that an advantage has been gained.
    6. Minimum and maximum bet amounts on all sporting events will be determined by us and are subject to change without prior written notice. We also reserve the right to adjust limits on individual Accounts as well.
    7. Customers are solely responsible for their own Account transactions. Please be sure to review your bets for any mistakes before sending them in. Once a transaction is complete, it cannot be changed. We do not take responsibility for missing or duplicate bets made by the Customer and will not entertain discrepancy requests because a bet is missing or duplicated. Customers may review their transactions in the My Account section of the Website after each session to ensure all requested bets were accepted.
    8. For a bet to have action on any named contestant in a Yes/No Proposition, the contestant must enter and compete in the event.
    9. We attempt to follow the normal conventions to indicate home and away teams by indicating the home and away team by means of vertical placement on the desktop Website version. This means in American Sports we would place the home team on the bottom. For Non-American sports, we would indicate the home team on top. In the case of a neutral venue, we attempt to include the letter "N" next to the team names to indicate this. For the Asian and mobile versions, we do not distinguish between European and American Sports. On the Asian and mobile versions of the Website, the home team is always listed first. However, we do not guarantee the accuracy of this information and unless there is an official venue change subsequent to bets being placed, all bets have action.
    10. A game/match will have action regardless of the League heading that is associated with the matchup. For example, two teams from the same League are playing in a Cup competition. If the matchup is mistakenly placed in the League offering, the game/match will still have action, as long as the matchup is correct. In other words, a matchup will have action as long as the two teams are correct, and regardless of the League header in which it is placed on our Website.
    11. If an event is not played on the same date as announced by the governing body, then all bets on the event have no action. If an event is posted by us with an incorrect date, all bets have action based on the date announced by the governing body.
    12. Pinnacle reserves the right to remove events, markets, and any other product from the Website.
    13. In all futures betting (for example: total season wins; Super Bowl winner; etc.), the winner as determined by the Governing Body will also be declared the winner for betting purposes, except when the minimum number of games required for the future to have "action" has not been completed.
    14. In the event of there being a discrepancy between the English language version of team names or bet descriptions and any other language version, the English language version will be deemed to be correct. The grading of bets and disputes will be settled based on the English version of team names and bet descriptions.
    15. Information or data accessed by you via the Website or any part of it (including, but not limited to, results, statistics, sporting data and fixture lists, odds, and betting figures) is for your personal use only and the distribution or commercial exploitation of such information or data is strictly prohibited. No warranty is given as to the uninterrupted provision of such information or data, its accuracy or as to the results obtained through its use. The information is not intended to amount to advice or recommendations and is provided for information purposes only. It should not be relied upon when placing bets, which are made at your own risk and discretion.

13. Communications and Notices

    1. Theoretical return to player is when fixed odds are given to the player through calculating the odds set for all possible results on the bet.

      The theoretical return to player in a game with three possible outcomes a, b and c can be calculated as follows: Theoretical % = 1/ (1 / “odds result a” + 1/ “odds result b” + 1/ odds result c”) x 100.

      Example: Decimal Odds on a 3-way market of Odds A = 4.00, Odds B = 3.00, Odds C = 2.3 would result in a Theoretical return of 1/(1/4 + 1/3 + 1/2.3) * 100 = 98.22%.
