Bright Bingo reserves the right to alter, terminate or withdraw bonuses at any time and at its own discretion. We reserve the right to remove any incorrect credits added to the bonus or balance meter due to technical issues. If an account is inactive for a period of 3 months or more then any bonus on that account will be automatically removed by Bright Bingo and deemed to be forfeited. All open bonuses are automatically forfeited upon self exclusion of an account.
4.14 Bonus Abuse
In the event that the Operator believes a member is abusing or attempting to abuse a bonus or other promotion, or is likely to benefit through abuse or lack of good faith from a gambling policy adopted by us, then we may, at our sole discretion, deny, withhold or withdraw from any user any bonus or promotion, or rescind any policy with respect to that user, either temporarily or permanently, or terminate that user's access to the Services and/or block that user's account.
4.15 Special Promotions
From time to time the Operator may offer themed events and special promotions allowing players to win extra prizes. The Operator reserves the right to determine the member qualification criteria of the bonus promotion. Full details on the bonus promotion terms and conditions can be found on the ‘Bonus Explanation’ section of the website.
4.16 Depositing Players Rule
The crediting of prizes and bonuses for promotions, events, chat games and side games may be subject to the 'depositing players rule'. This rule means that only players who have deposited within the time frame dictated by the Operator are eligible to receive prizes. Entry into certain rooms, including but not limited to our jackpot event rooms are also restricted to players who have deposited within a certain time-frame, this time-frame is published on the relevant event page but is subject to change. The deposit requirement period is calculated from the exact time at which the room opens. The Operator reserves the right to invoke this clause at their discretion and their decision on whether a player is eligible for entry to an event/prizes is final.
4.17 Refer a friend
A 'refer a friend' bonus is offered at the discretion of the Operator. This bonus may be amended or withdrawn at any time. Only valid referral registrations from non-existing players are counted. In the event of suspected abuse of this feature the Operator reserves the right to close the associated accounts.
5.1 Playing for Real
5 Acceptance and Validation of Wagering
Players can enter our bingo games by purchasing tickets using funds from either their bonus or balance meters. Casino games (including our mini-games in the bingo application) can only be 'played for real' by a player using funds from their balance meter. In no instance would wagering in the casino's 'demo' mode entitle a player to win cash jackpots or prizes. In order to play casino games for real money, players must have made at least one valid deposit to their account in the previous 3 months. Casino wagering may be voided if on review the member has not deposited within the previous 3 months. For this purpose, we define 'previous 3 months' as the last 90 days. Bright Bingo decision on this condition is final.
5.2 Confirmed Wagers
When placing a bet you must receive confirmation from us that the wager has been accepted. All bets are final. The Operator cannot cancel or refund wagers once they have been confirmed by the Operator in your account unless the wager is declared void for reasons outlined in these Terms and Conditions.
5.3 Accurate Wagering Records
Despite every effort to ensure total accuracy, the Operator does not accept responsibility for any errors or omissions in respect of information provided on the site. Wagers based on incorrect odds will be void.
5.4 Deduction of Wagers / Unresolved Wagers
Stakes (the cost of a wager) will be deducted from your account at the time of placing your bet, no matter when the result is determined. The Operator cannot refund bets placed on games where bets have been purchased for future plays that have not yet been settled. Such bets will be resolved and winnings credited to members bank accounts.
5.5 Right of the Operator to cancel/terminate Games
The Operator reserves the right to cancel or terminate game events at its sole discretion. In the event that a game is cancelled or terminated such that it is not possible to resolve the wager then that game shall be deemed null and void and the wager will be credited back to the member account.
5.6 Right of the Operator to postpone Games
The Operator shall also reserve the right to postpone games at its sole discretion. In this case any wagers for the postponed games shall still stand and the game will be executed at the new time set by the Operator. In practical terms the postponement of games is likely to only apply to games which follow a schedule and allow prepaying of entry tickets (i.e. as Bingo), though the Operator reserves the right to extend this clause to other games.
5.7 Pre-Purchased Bingo Cards
Pre-purchased bingo cards are purchases for games that will take place in the future. Once you confirm you have purchased a ticket for a future game, your wager is final. Pre-purchase games may be subject to change or cancellation without prior notice. In the event that a game is cancelled, you will be refunded all purchased tickets. The Operator reserves the right to cancel or amend any game without prior notice.
5.8 Cancelled/ Interrupted Games & Compensation Policy
Stakes for any cancelled or incomplete games will be returned to players within 48 hours of the cancellation notice or the start time of the game (whichever occurs first). Any stakes for bingo games that take over 10 minutes to complete (from time first ball is drawn) will be refunded to the player within 48 hours.
6.1 The Operator will apply an Administration Fee to all accounts that have been ‘inactive’ for a consecutive period of at 12 months in accordance with the following procedure. An account is deemed to be ‘inactive’ during any period in which none of the following actions take place in relation to it: (i) a successful deposit; (ii) participation in any casino, or bingo games
(a) If your account remains ‘inactive’ for a continuous period of 12 months then your account shall be deemed to be ‘dormant’ and, if the balance on your account is zero, your account will be closed and no fee shall apply.
(b) If, on being deemed to be dormant, your account has a positive balance, the Operator shall take reasonable steps to notify you using the details you provided during your registration process (or as updated by you).
(c) If your account remains dormant, after a minimum period of 28 days following the Operator’s first attempt to notify you that your account has become dormant, the Operator shall deduct a monthly Administration Fee from your account balance of £2 (or currency equivalent), or 5% of your account balance at the time that it is deemed to be dormant (whichever is greater).
(d) The Administration Fee calculated in accordance with (c) above shall be deducted from your account balance on the expiry of the 28 day notification period mentioned above and every 28 days thereafter at the same rate until the earlier of: (i) your account balance reaching zero when no further Administration Fee shall be deducted and your account will be closed; or (ii) you ‘reactivating’ your account when no further Administration Fee shall be deducted.
6.2 You can ‘reactivate’ your account by: (i) making a successful deposit; (i) a successful deposit; (ii) participation in any casino, or bingo games
7.1 Crediting Winnings
7 Prizes, Payment of Winnings, Withdrawal of Funds and Bonus Promotions
Winnings due on wagering conducted through your account will be added to your balance or bonus meter automatically. This update of your account is not 'proof of win'. If upon manual review there is evidence of fraud or malpractice, the Operator reserves the right to void certain winnings and to amend member accounts accordingly.
7.2 Maximum Winnings
The maximum that any one individual can win in any 24 hour period (excluding any progressive or super jackpot elements to a prize payout) is limited to GBP 25,000 (￡25,000.00) or currency equivalent. Should you exceed this limit in any 24 hour period, any bets made once the limit has been exceeded may be rendered void, at the Operator's discretion and your stakes will be returned to your account without any winnings made on those wagers.
7.3 Rounding of Winnings
The Operator uses a wager multiplier to calculate and accumulate gaming odds and it is therefore possible that with certain games, winning payouts can be displayed for presentational clarity having been rounded down to two decimal places to the nearest currency unit (i.e. pence (GBP). However, the Operator's servers calculate and record the exact decimal value of the accumulated winning payouts and member’s balances.
7.4 The Operator's Wagering Decision is Final
You agree that the Operator and their records shall be the final authority in determining the terms of any wagers you place and the circumstances in which they were made.
7.5 Taxation on Winnings
Any applicable taxes and fees in connection with any winnings awarded to you are your sole responsibility. If you have any further questions regarding winnings, please contact email@example.com for assistance.
7.6 Licence Fees
The Operator will pay any appropriate licence fees to the appropriate tax authorities at the applicable rate.
7.7 Withdrawal Timescales
You should receive your withdrawal within 3-5 working days. Typically, it takes us 1-2 working days to process your payment followed by another 2-3 working days for your bank to receive it. E-Wallet payments are often quicker; these are usually received within 1-2 working days. Please be aware that these timescales are a guide only and not guaranteed. The Operator does not accept any liability which may result from you receiving your withdrawal outside of our normal timescales.
7.8 Withdrawal Payout Method
To ensure website integrity and compliance with Anti Money Laundering Laws, it is the policy of the Operator to always return withdrawals to the source of deposit. For example, if a deposit is made using Skrill then the subsequent withdrawal will be returned to Skrill. If the majority deposits on an account are made using a certain card then withdrawals will be returned to this card. In any instance where a return to source is not available we will send your withdrawal via e-wallet or bank transfer, in this case we will ask you to complete your bank details as part of your profile. The decision of the Operator regarding a players ‘source of funds’ and ‘withdrawal method’ is final.
7.9 Minimum/Maximum Withdrawals
Players can make withdrawals of GBP 20 or above. Bank transfer withdrawals are limited to GBP 5,000 per transaction. Withdrawals to e-wallet systems (e.g. NETeller) are limited to GBP 2,500. As part of our Age Verification and Anti-Money Laundering requirements, withdrawals may be subject to ‘Proof of Identity’ checks. We do not charge you to withdraw from your account and please note we accept no responsibility for any charges or fees levied by your card issuing bank or financial institution.
7.10 Withdrawal Eligibility
In order to withdraw, a player’s account must firstly be age verified. If the Operator is unable to do this using an age verification agency then photo identification will be required. In some cases additional verification documents will be required (see term 6.13 for more details). Players who receive free bonuses may be able to meet the wagering requirements and request a withdrawal without making a deposit. In order to receive a withdrawal, these players are required to make a deposit of 10 GBP or more using a refundable payment source (Debit/Credit card, Neteller or Skrill), they can then be granted a withdrawal containing their deposit and converted bonus. At least one deposit must be made in the previous 90 days in order to request a withdrawal.
7.11 Unsuccessful Withdrawals/Re-issuing Bank Transfers
It is the sole responsibility of the player to submit the correct bank account and sort code details for payment of winnings via bank transfer. The Operator cannot repay incorrect, successful payments which have been caused as a result of erroneous details from the player. If payment is unsuccessful, the Operator will investigate and notify the player and request corrected bank account details. Unsuccessful payments will only be credited to a players account once the Operator has been notified by its bank payment processor that the payment has been successfully retrieved.
7.12 Confirmation of Payment Requests / Account Debiting and Reversing Withdrawals
Once you have submitted your request you will see a confirmation message that the transfer has been actioned and your balance will immediately clear to zero or to the balance of the amount not withdrawn. During the time before your withdrawal is processed by us, you will be given the option to reverse your withdrawal with a maximum of 30 times per month. Reversing your withdrawal will cancel your request and see the funds returned to your balance.
7.13 Payment Authorisation and Payment
We aim to authorise your card, bank transfer or e-wallet withdrawal request within 1-2 working day(s) of your request. For security reasons players making withdrawals may have to provide some additional information to ensure stringent safeguards are maintained. This is to protect our players and ensure no fraudulent activity is carried out and ensure we meet our obligations under the provisions of the License. Please see term ‘3.6 Age and Identity Verification’ for more information. Once your withdrawal has been approved we are not responsible for any third party financial clearing process delays in your payment being received. We are not responsible for any delays in processing your withdrawal requests in the event you do not receive or respond to our request.
7.14 International Bank Transfers
Non UK registered and overseas members requesting international bank transfers will be sent their withdrawal less any applicable bank transfer fees. Alternatively such members currently overseas can opt to receive their withdrawal by cheque in pounds sterling.
7.15 Progressive Jackpots
Progressive Jackpots include our Global ('Money Mountain') Jackpot and our Room Jackpots. To be eligible to win any Progressive Jackpot the player must have made a valid deposit to their account within the previous 3 months. For this purpose, we define 'previous 3 months' as the last 90 days. Bright Bingo decision on this condition is final. Provided the player is eligible, a Progressive Jackpot can be won through buying cards with either the bonus or the balance meters and winning the full house prize within a certain number of balls as specified in the room. In the event of a progressive win we reserve the right to publish information such as first name, first letter of surname, town or city, county, country and details of your win as well as any photographs and quotes from telephone conversations or email correspondence. The Operator reserves the right to participate in pooled progressive jackpots across networks owned and operated by the Service Provider.
7.16 Progressive Jackpot Winnings
Progressive Jackpot Winnings will only be awarded to players who have made a deposit in the previous 3 months. For this purpose, we define 'previous 3 months' as the last 90 days. Bright Bingo decision on this condition is final. All progressive winnings will be subject to final confirmation by the Operator. This decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into.
7.17 Progressive Jackpot Accuracy
The Operator has taken every possible precaution to ensure that the progressive value displayed in the game matches the value on the game server. Please note that it is the progressive value on the server that is used when the progressive is paid out. A small discrepancy may arise due to the delay between the initial progressive being displayed to the Player and the progressive that is actually won and paid out. Although unlikely, it is theoretically possible for the jackpot to be apparently won by more than one player during the delay period mentioned above. In the event of more than one player apparently winning a progressive jackpot simultaneously then the player recorded on our servers as having won the jackpot first shall be the recipient and the subsequent player(s) shall win the value of the jackpot when reset. In the extremely unlikely event of the server recording a win truly simultaneously, the Operator reserves the right to share the jackpot equally between the winning players.
7.18 Exchange Rates
You hereby acknowledge and accept that jackpots and other promotional amounts may be displayed on the Site in one currency but actually paid to you in another currency. You will always be credited in the currency you selected with registering your account. All currency conversions executed by the Operator for the purposes of allowing you to deposit and withdraw money from your account shall be executed by the Operator at an exchange rate comparable with daily commercial rates offered by banks and credit card companies.
7.19 Location-specific Promotional Prizes
The Operator will specify if 'travel costs' are included in a location-specific promotional prize. The Operator reserves the right to offer an alternative prize of similar value (including a financial consideration) if it is impractical for the player to travel to a location-based prize. In such cases, the Operator will attempt to offer a similar type of prize at a location nearer to the player but the Operator reserves the right alternatively to offer a financial consideration prize.
7.20 Prize Winner Promotion
The Designated Winner hereby agrees that their first name, first letter of their surname, town or city, county, country and details of your win as well as any photographs and quotes from telephone conversations or email correspondence may be used in any publicity material by the Operator.
7.21 Maximum Payout
If a player makes a withdrawal of more than GBP 20,000 the operator reserves the right to spread the payment over multiple months. This means the player will receive up to GBP 20,000 every subsequent 30 days until the whole winnings have been paid. Players categorized as VIP in our casino can request a higher monthly payment of their winnings from their VIP manager.
8.1 Minimum Stakes
A minimum stake of GBP 0.01 per wager applies. All stakes/wagers generate a unique ticket number/identifier.
8.2 The Operator's Server Evidenced Bet Results
In the event that there is a discrepancy between either the numbers that a Player believes that they have entered or the graphic display of the game they have played and those in the database maintained by the Operator, the numbers in the database are considered valid and no correspondence disputing such issues will be entered into by the Operator. For the avoidance of doubt, this policy covers disputed results on both 'Play for Real' and Demo Mode Games.
8.3 Random Number Generator
You accept and agree that random number generator software, hosted on the Operator’s servers in Malta and Sweden will determine the outcome of the Games. You accept and agree that if the result shown on the Software (as installed and operated by your hardware) conflicts with the result shown on our server, the result shown on our server shall in all circumstances take precedence. You understand and agree that (without prejudice to your other rights and remedies) the Operator records shall be the final authority in determining the terms of your use of the Services and you shall have no right to dispute the Operator's decisions in regard to such matters. No claims or disputes will be considered more than seven days after the date of the original transaction and all claims or disputes should be raised with Customer Support by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
8.4 Integrity of Random Number Generator (RNG)
The output of the Service Provider's RNG used by the Operator is monitored regularly by the Operator to ensure it performs within expected bounds and is checked periodically by the Agents of the Authority and is accepted and certified by the Authority in accordance with the provisions of the License.
8.5 Automatic Game Playing / Manipulation of Software
Automatic playing of Games by software (including so called 'robots') or any other manipulation of the Games or your/another Player's account data may result in termination of your membership, cancellation of all associated accounts, and the cancellation of any outstanding winnings and deposits. Players that violate this policy will not be eligible for reinstatement under different screen names until further notice.
8.6 Rules and Regulations Violations
The Operator reserves all legal rights and remedies against Players who violate the rules and regulations associated with the Operator's account membership.
8.7 Disconnections and Other Events Beyond the Operator's Control
Wherever possible, the Operator endeavours to ensure the full protection of all its clients and their bets. However, there are certain events that are beyond the Operator's control. The games are played over Internet, and, in the case of mobile games, over the cellular mobile telephone networks. These are communication mediums that are known to be imperfect. If you have not commenced the game when you are disconnected, the game will not take place. If you have commenced the game when you are disconnected the game will be recorded on the game servers and the bet will stand and the outcome will be reflected in your account status. Some Games are multi stage and may include bonus games. In the event of a disconnection during a bonus game or a multi stage game, reconnecting and re-selecting the game (at the same coin value where applicable) should cause the game to recommence from the point at which it terminated. Non multi stage games will complete the outcome of the game or bonus game in your absence and will credit your account in the result of a win. In the event a bonus game cannot for any reason be recommenced in this way this is considered a malfunction unless otherwise stated in the specific game rules. In the event of disconnection the records stored on the game server shall be the final authority in determining the terms of any wagers you place and the circumstances in which they were made. Malfunction voids all pays and play.
8.8 Client (Member) Account Balances
The balance of a client's account will at all times be as is recorded on the server. Generally the balance on the server when logging into the website, after a line has been disconnected or become non-responsive, will reflect the true balance after completion of the last bet prior to the breakdown in communications.
8.9 Wager Result Acceptance
By placing any further wagers with the Operator the Player accepts the results of any previous wager. As such (at the Operator's discretion) the results of the previous wager are no longer in dispute and no refunds or other adjustments will be granted. If the Player should feel the result of any of the Operator's games is unfair or incorrect the Player should contact the Operator immediately and report the incident.
8.10 The Operator's Terms and Conditions of Play
All games are played strictly subject to the Operator's terms and conditions. By playing at the Operator's website, the player is agreeing to abide by these terms and conditions and, in addition, the specific rules relating to any specific game played.

Employees and Contractors of the Operator, the Service Provider and any of the Operator's or Service Provider's third party contractors such as licensors, software suppliers, partners or developers and their employees are prohibited from registering, playing the Games or making transactions on the service, unless authorised to do so by a legally entitled Official of the Operator for test purposes only. For the avoidance of doubt, no funds or winnings in accounts used in this manner may be withdrawn.

Where applicable this clause shall include collusion between players or suspected collusion between players whether using our systems or other systems.
8.14 Gaming System Malfunction
The Operator reserves the right to withhold winnings and void wagers if a player manipulates the games in a fraudulent manner or the Gaming System itself malfunctions. The definition of such a malfunction extends to an error in the published odds or pay tables, or a game not working in accordance with its published rules.
8.15 Player Staking
Players must pay for each wager from funds in their gaming account. If funds are not available the player will not be allowed to wager until further funds are deposited.
8.16 Autoplay Facility
In our Bingo game there is a function available to you that sets the number of cards you buy at every round and buys these cards automatically. You can reset this at any time but as long as it is not reset, cards bought under the Auto Buy functionality will be deemed wagered by you. An Autoplay Facility is available on several slots games and allows you to set the game to play out between 10 and 1,000 spins automatically for you. You can select the number of spins you wish to play and each spin will be placed a minimum of 3 seconds after the previous spin. You are able to stop the spins at any time. You are responsible for ensuring you are comfortable with the number of spins and the coin size you select before committing to Autoplay. Once you press AUTO the spins will start in accordance with the settings you have specified. Once commenced, the spins can only be stopped by pressing the STOP button. Pressing the STOP button will prevent further automatic spins from taking place.

The Operator's Demo Mode games are the same as the corresponding Play for Real version. Demo Mode versions of games allow you to play for 'fun' money that has no financial value.

The Player accepts and agrees that all copyright of every LWM belongs to the Operator in perpetuity. After a period of two years, the Player may inform the Operator explicitly and in writing to the Operator’s registered address that the Player no longer wishes to make her LWM available on the Operator’s websites or any other third party media. In that case the Operator will ensure that all LWM in question will be taken off the Operator’s websites and all third party media will be informed of the same, within a reasonable period of time.
9.4.2 Use of LWM
The Operator’s system records 10 seconds of every LWM each time a Player wins and has her webcam enabled. Only with a full house bingo win the Player has the choice to accept or refuse 15% extra on top of her winnings onto her bonus or balance meter, depending on the type of cards bought. In case the Player decides to reject the extra 15%, the LWM will be removed from or not displayed on the Operator’s websites. However, the Operator will keep a record of all LWM to ensure that abuse policies are adhered to at all times by all Players. If the Player accepts the 15%, the Player grants the Operator the right to use the LWM in a variety of promotional tools on a variety of third party media channels, not excluding video sites, affiliate sites, social networking sites, television and other media.

Complaints and disputes will be considered by our customer service team in the first instance and may be escalated to the Operations Director, whose response and decision will be the final stage of the internal process. We will handle your complaint or dispute in accordance with Gambling Commission's guidelines.
We aim to provide you with a substantive response to your complaint as soon as practically possible and seek to resolve your complaint within eight weeks from the date we receive the complaint. Depending on the complexity of the complaint, our investigation may take longer than eight weeks to resolve. We will ensure that we write to you within eight weeks of the date we receive your complaint or dispute with either a final response or an update of the position explaining why we are not in a position to provide a final response, and when we expect to be in a position to do so.

If your concern is not resolved at this stage you can escalate the complaint or dispute by referring the matter in writing addressed to our Operations Director using the email address email@example.com.

In the case of a dispute (but not a complaint) you will be notified that if you still remain dissatisfied with that decision you have the right to refer your dispute to our Alternative Dispute Resolution entity, IBAS, at http://www.ibas-uk.com
15.7 Alternative Dispute Resolution
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) involves the referral of unresolved disputes to an independent third party for adjudication. This includes unresolved disputes about the outcomes of gambling transactions. There is no charge to you for using this service. The details of our ADR entity are also held by the Gambling Commission.
The ADR entity reserves the right to reject disputes referred for resolution on the basis that they are frivolous or vexatious but we are not permitted to refuse referral on that basis. The ultimate resolution may be made binding on both parties but does not deprive you of the right to pursue the matter in the courts.
Details of all disputes referred to the ADR entity and details of the outcome will be provided by us to the Gambling Commission, as required by the Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice attached to our Operating Licence.
