You are aware that the right to access and use the Website may be considered illegal in certain territories.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you are permitted to use our Website in your territory.

We do not permit accounts to be opened by, or used from, players based in the US, Netherlands, France, Dutch West Indies and Curaçao. For the avoidance of doubt, access and registration from territories that do not feature on the registration menu is strictly prohibited (“Prohibited Territories”).
Any attempt to circumvent this restriction, for example, by using a VPN, proxy or similar service that masks or manipulates the identification of your real location, or by otherwise providing false or misleading information regarding your citizenship, location or place of residence, or by making bets or wagers using the Website through a third party or on behalf of a third party located in a Prohibited Territory is a breach of these T&Cs and may constitute a criminal offence.

3. Account and Verification Checks
In order for you to be able to place bets and deposit money you must first register personally and open an account (the “Account”). You need to be registered on our Website in order to participate in any of the games we offer for real money. Breckenridge reserves the right to refuse to register or to open an Account at its sole discretion.
Only one Account for each individual, IP address and device is allowed. If we identify any user with more than one Account, we reserve the right to close any duplicate account(s) and return any withdrawable funds.
As part of the registration process you will have to choose your username and password for your login into the Website. It is your sole and exclusive responsibility to ensure that your login details are kept securely. You must not disclose your login details to anyone. We are not responsible for any abuse or misuse of your Account by third parties due to your disclosure, whether intentional or accidental, whether active or passive, of your login details to any third party. Any actions implemented using your login details will be considered as being implemented by the User and any liability arising from such use shall be strictly yours. If third parties are aware of your login details, it is your sole responsibility to inform us and it is your sole responsibility to change such login details.
Breckenridge reserves the right to carry out additional identity verification procedures when effecting deposits or withdrawals from your Account as may be required in accordance with its legal obligations and internal policies, including asking for due diligence documentation. It is your responsibility to ensure that all documents as part of any due diligence process are genuine. Counterfeit documents may result in the confiscation of funds and refusal of such documents. These verification procedures shall be carried out within reasonable timeframe to avoid any inconvenience. To avoid any doubt, we may delay the crediting of any such payment to your Account until such verification measures are carried out.
All transactions shall be checked in order to prevent money laundering. Breckenridge and any regulatory or governing body can monitor or request to review all transactions to prevent this crime from being committed. Breckenridge shall report any suspicious transactions to the relevant competent authorities. Should we be made aware of any suspicious activity relating to any of our games, we shall report this to the relevant institutions immediately. Breckenridge may suspend, block or close an Account and withhold any funds therein, if it is requested to do so in accordance with the applicable prevention of money laundering and financing of terrorism laws and regulations.
We reserve the right to refuse to open an Account for any individual and to suspend or terminate an Account at any time in cases where we believe that continuing the business relationship with you could negatively impact our licensing and general regulatory obligations or any aspect of our services at our sole discretion and without any explanation whatsoever, however any contractual obligations already made by Breckenridge shall, without prejudice to any rights available at law to Breckenridge, be honoured accordingly.
You can log into your Account at any time where you can also view your account history, including deposits, bonus credits, winnings, wagers and withdrawals. Should you notice any mistakes, you should immediately notify Breckenridge so that it can be reviewed and rectified as necessary.
If your Account is mistakenly credited with credit, winnings or other funds, you are obliged to inform Breckenridge immediately using email or live chat. The amount mistakenly credited will remain property of Breckenridge without exception and you shall transfer the amount in question from the Account back to Breckenridge instantly. If you withdraw any such funds mistakenly credited, you shall be considered a certain and liquidated debtor towards Breckenridge for the amount withdrawn which debt shall be immediately due. If you place any bets using such mistakenly credited amounts, winnings or funds these bets shall be invalid.
If no transaction has been recorded on your Account for twelve (12) consecutive months, your Account will be deemed inactive. Breckenridge will contact you via email up to one month prior to your Account becoming inactive. You may reactivate an inactive account by logging in. If once your Account is inactive, Breckenridge is unable to contact you after making reasonable attempt to do so, we will charge a sum equivalent to the higher of 5% or $5 administrative fee per month to your Account. Fees on inactive accounts can bring your Account balance to zero. Inactivity fees shall only be refundable upon proof of health impediment or other reasonable cause during such inactive period.
No interest is payable on your Account balance irrespective of the amount held in your Account. Accordingly, you shall not in any way treat Breckenridge as a financial institution.
You understand and accept that Breckenridge strictly prohibits cheating players and player collusion. Should we have reasonable suspicion that any cheating or collusion has occurred, we reserve the right to void any bet that we suspect has been made as a result of such behaviour and/or confiscate any funds on your Account and close your Account. Any player who has reasonable grounds to suspect that another player is taking an unfair advantage through cheating or collusion is to report the suspicion to Breckenridge via email or live chat.
Funds cannot be transferred from your Account to another Account or vice-versa.
You agree not to try and hack the Website or alter its code in any way. You also agree not to exploit any loopholes or use any robotic, automated, mechanical, electronic or other devices to make automated decisions in your use of the Website, whether such use is attempted or affected by you or by any third parties. Should we have reasonable suspicion that any such device is being used on the Website, or any such external resource that is designed to provide a player with unfair advantage over other players, we reserve the right to void any bet that we suspect has been made using such a device. We may also suspend the Account in question pending investigation into the matter and terminate the Account at our sole discretion. We consider the use of such devices to be tantamount to fraud and reserve the right not to refund any balance on the Account at the time of termination.
Breckenridge does not offer its services to players who are identified as Politically Exposed Persons (“PEPs”). Should you be identified as a PEP at any stage, your Account will be closed. If you disagree with our determination of your PEP status, please contact us via email or live chat.
4. Deposits and Withdrawals
In relation to deposits and withdrawals of funds into and from your Account, you acknowledge that you shall only use such credit cards and other financial instruments that are valid and issued by lawful institutions and that legally belong to you. In the event that we identify or have reasonable grounds to believe that a payment method does not belong to you, we reserve the right to close your Account and void any winnings. Breckenridge prohibits the use of cards issued to companies.
Breckenridge accepts stakes in a number of different currencies. You must choose one currency as the default currency of your Account. Any payments received by Breckenridge in a currency other than the one chosen by you will be converted into the currency chosen at the then prevailing exchange rate. Any exchange rate costs shall be borne by you.
When you open an Account we require you to make a minimum deposit before you can bet or play. We will assign minimum and maximum deposit levels as specified on the Website in the ‘Deposit’ section of your Account. You acknowledge that you may only wager and play with the amount of cleared funds held in your Account.
Breckenridge reserves the right to impose a reasonable fee reflecting its direct costs on withdrawals. Further external banking processing fees may apply from time to time which may be outside of our control. Any such withdrawal fees shall be reflected in the ‘Withdrawal’ section of your Account.
It is unlawful to deposit funds from ill-gotten means. In line with applicable laws and where possible, Breckenridge will remit amounts to the same payment method from where the funds deposited into your Account originated. Withdrawal payments may only be made in the name of and to the registered Account holder. Breckenridge reserves the right to cancel withdrawals either to enforce a closed loop or to force the customer to withdraw to a particular payment method.
In the case of deposits via credit or debit cards, you may be requested in our reasonable discretion to submit a copy of the front and back of the relevant card showing first six (6) and last four (4) digits and hiding the security code.
In order to withdraw any amount of money from your account, you must wager your deposits a minimum of 2x over, showing intent to play on our casino. Breckenridge reserves the right to refuse withdrawal payouts based on insufficient wagering at its discretion and request that deposits are wagered further in certain scenarios.
Bonus funds may be credited to your Account as part of a promotion, loyalty scheme or other marketing campaign. Any bonus funds cannot be directly withdrawn but must be used for the placing of wagers on the Website. Depending on the promotion, such bonus funds may be convertible to real money after fulfilling a specific set of criteria for the promotion. Please refer to the specific Promotional Terms.
Deposits and withdrawals from an Account shall at all times be made through a financial institution or a payment solution provider. The procedures, terms and conditions, availability, fees and processing time for deposits or withdrawals may vary depending on the relevant financial institution or payment solution provider.
No credit shall be permitted. It is your responsibility to maintain sufficient funds in your Account and to stake your funds accordingly. Gambling transactions will not be confirmed if there are insufficient funds in your Account. We reserve the right to void any stake which be inadvertently placed or accepted if your Account does not have sufficient funds to cover the whole stake.
The time for a withdrawal request to be finalized may vary due to circumstances, however a withdrawal usually takes place between three (3) to five (5) working days.
Deposits made to your Account should be commensurate to your game play. We reserve the right to, at our sole discretion, close your Account and confiscate any winnings or balance, should we have any suspicion of abuse. Such abuse may, for example, include a deposited amount not being wagered or used appropriately before a withdrawal request is made.
