You agree to indemnify us and hold us harmless against any costs, claims, damages and expenses arising in connection with the use of, or access to, your Account by any third party as a result of your negligence, breach of these terms of use, fraud, dishonesty or criminal activities.

All payments made to you as part of a withdrawal of funds following winning a Bet placed in a League will be made to this same debit or credit card.

Joining a League, placing Bets, payment and withdrawals

To participate in a League, you shall pay the Joining Fee for that League as specified on the website from time to time.

You agree to pay monies for the Joining Fee by our accepted deposit methods to an account with us in line with our procedures against which you shall be able to use our services.

You are obliged to check that the Bet instructions you have submitted are correct before confirming the Bet. We reserve the right not to accept, or accept only a part of any Bet.

We reserve the right to propose a different stake size or price for the selection on any Bet.

Bets placed by credit or debit card, do not become valid until WKW has received payment. In the event that such payment is not forthcoming before the event that the Bet is on commences, then that Bet is automatically void.

We do not accept Bets by post or e-mail. WKW staff cannot place online bets on behalf of customers.

A Bet is deemed to be valid only following confirmation of acceptance, and the Bet being logged on our server. This acceptance is demonstrated with the generation of confirmation that you have joined the applicable League.

We cannot be held responsible for a Bet not being placed for any reason, including but not limited to; computer malfunctions and failure of telecommunications services or internet connections. We will not honour Bets that have been submitted to us, but not confirmed in the manner described above.

In the event that a sum is mistakenly credited to your Account, WKW shall be entitled to make the appropriate adjustment to your Account.

In the event that a sum is mistakenly credited to your Account, and this money is withdrawn, then you must reimburse the sum immediately upon request.

Live Betting

Live Betting means betting that takes place while an event is in progress.

We reserve the right to void any part of any, or all, Bets on any Live Betting event that is not completed i.e. was abandoned or postponed for any reason, including but not limited to: • adverse weather conditions, injuries, or drop-outs; • where a blatant or palpable error is made in transmission on any event on which we have purported to offer Live Betting, Bets may be settled at the correct price at the time at which the Bet was placed; or • where we have reasonable grounds to believe that a Bet is placed after the outcome of an event is known, we reserve the right to void the Bet.

Please note that in the case of Live Betting, you may not at any time be able to see or otherwise be provided with the most up-to-date information in relation to the relevant event, including for example (but without limitation), through delayed coverage, a slow connection or equipment, or other system flaws, faults, errors or service interruption. WKW shall not be liable for any delay in relaying up-to-date information.

Winnings & Payment

WKW shall receive 10% of the accumulated Joining Fees within a League following completion of the applicable Live Betting event. Following this deduction, winnings will be credited to the winner’s Account within 14 working days following the outcome of the Live Betting event, as published and finalized within the relevant sporting event. All payments made to a winner as part of a withdrawal of funds will be made to the same debit or credit card as used by the winner to pay the Joining Fee. In the event of this not being possible, payments will be made by cheque, bank transfer or cash in accordance with the personal details stored in the customer’s Account.

Please note that your bank can take up to 5 working days to return withdrawals to your debit or credit card. Our preferred method of payment is to return funds directly to the debit or credit card used to pay the Joining Fee.

Any queries over a Bet claim should first be e-mailed to us. We will make every effort to resolve the matter in a mutually satisfactory manner.

We may use your username and/or first name and/or initials and region and any winnings you may have had for advertising or promotional purposes without additional compensation.

Customer funds

Any monies deposited with us are protected in the event of our insolvency by virtue of such monies being held by our bank in designated client accounts separate from our own accounts. In respect of Great Britain customers, our licence from the UK Gambling Control Commission (“UKGC”) requires us to inform our Great Britain customers about what happens to funds which we hold on account for them, and the extent to which such funds are protected in the event of insolvency (http://www.gamblingcommission.gov.uk/consumers/protection_of_customer_funds.aspx). We hold customer funds separate from company funds in a client account. We can guarantee that all funds will be repaid. Such an account is proactively monitored and is audited by independent internal and external audit teams. This meets the UKGC’s requirements for the segregation of customer funds at a high level of protection.
