All BetBoss Games remain subject to the provisions of the Betting Lotteries and Gaming Act (Cap 131 Laws of Kenya) and any disputes arising hereunder shall be resolved in accordance with such provision.

This agreement establishes the Terms and Conditions that govern the contractual relationship between the Company and the Player and shall apply when You play any BetBoss Game via any media or electronic platform, including inter alia, mobile devices, tablets, laptops and computers. Each BetBoss Game may also have its own game-specific Procedures and Rules that apply and Players are reminded that they will be deemed to have agreed to and be bound by such Procedures and Rules. You are required to accept these Terms and Conditions when interacting with the services offered by the Company and you are bound by these Terms and Conditions throughout the existence of the relationship. The Terms and Conditions govern the way we do business, how we take and settle bets, and how we identify what the Player can expect from BetBoss. By using our services, regardless of how a Player accesses them, the Player acknowledges and confirms acceptance of these terms and agrees to abide and be bound by them. If a Player does not agree to these terms of use, he or she should refrain from using our services.

 

1.     BETBOSS ACCOUNT RULES

1.1.          Your Kenyan mobile phone number (+254) is your Customer identity. We use mobile phone numbers to uniquely identify customers and their account details and for territorial restrictions on Players. To be eligible to register for an account with BetBoss, the Player must be of legal age (namely, 18 years or over) and register personally. The Player must provide and confirm age in the registration field. The Company reserves the right to request proof of age from any Player and to suspend an account pending the provision of satisfactory documentation. The name of the Player must match the name used when registering with the Company and must also exactly match the name that appears on the identification used when registering the mobile phone and mobile money account. If it is discovered that this is not the case, the relevant account will be suspended. In such circumstances it is advised that the Player contact our Customer Service Centre at 0703 065 777 or [email protected] In the event of a suspension, all bets that are places prior to the suspension will stand, win or lose. However, if is discovered that the account holder is under the legal age, the account will be terminated without notice, indefinitely, with all funds deposited to the account forfeited. The matter will be reported to all relevant authorities, including the BCLB. Players agree to provide any information required to verify the accuracy of registration details and BetBoss reserves the right to suspend any account in any manner deemed in our discretion to be appropriate, pending the verification of any requisite checks to our satisfaction.

1.2.          BetBoss accepts no liability to the Player or any third party, in the event of the provision of incorrect or false data. When engaging the services offered by BetBoss, the Player agrees not to:

a)                       Act in the interest of any third party

b)                       Use money obtained from criminal or other nefarious sources or activities

c)                       Credit accounts with funds from bank accounts, credit card accounts, mobile money accounts, or another source that the Player is not authorised to use

d)                       Attempt to hack any of BetBoss’ systems, including the mobile phone service, website, and all other media and electronic platforms, nor to alter the code in any way in an attempt to cheat, override or manipulate the system or in any way commit fraud or any other crime

e)                       Engage in any criminal behaviour targeting BetBoss, its affiliates, or any third party

f)                        Mislead BetBoss by intentionally providing false information of any kind at any time, including but not limited to: invalid account details; forged documentation; and any false identity information regarding age, location, etc. In the event of a change to the information provided, such as a change of address or similar, the Player agrees to update the account details accordingly.

1.3.          In the event of a breach of the provisions of the above (clauses 1.1 & 1.2) BetBoss reserves the right to close the account and seize all available funds. In such circumstances, BetBoss will report the matter to the BCLB and any other governing authority deemed appropriate. Notwithstanding the above, any contractual obligations to the Player will be honoured in the absence of any breach of any term or condition, or breach of any law – including the Laws of Kenya and any applicable International Law. It is the obligation of the Player to ensure, when opening an account and engaging the services of BetBoss that the Player is not infringing on any laws of any relevant jurisdiction.

1.4.          Players agree to open or operate no more than one account at any time and acknowledge that should BetBoss discover the operation of more than one account by any individual Player, BetBoss shall, at its absolute discretion, reserve the right to suspend or terminate all accounts relating to the Player. In addition, if multiple accounts have been created by a single Player deliberately with mis-leading information, or if the Player has displayed criminal behaviour, or if BetBoss concludes, in its sole discretion that the Player has fraudulent intentions, BetBoss shall be entitled to close the accounts, confiscate all funds including deposits, and provide a detailed report to the BCLB and any other relevant authorities.

1.5.          If a Player chooses to nominate a third party as an authorised user of the Player’s account, the Player shall be solely responsible for all transactions made. As such BetBoss strongly discourages such behaviour. If a Player has any suspicions in relation to the use of an account, we suggest that they contact our Customer Service department at the earliest possible convenience.

1.6.          BetBoss manages Players’ accounts and calculates available funds, pending funds, betting funds, and the amount of winnings; these amounts are prima facie considered final and not subject to dispute, unless proven conclusively otherwise.

1.7.          Account transactions for BetBoss in Kenya are performed in Kenyan Shillings (KSh). No interest is applicable to any funds, irrespective of the amount in your account or any delay in remitting funds to your account for any reason.

1.8.          BetBoss is not a financial institution, nor is it licensed as such – therefore, the Company shall not be used as an intermediary to transfer funds, used or unused, irrespective of the intentions, nor may the company be used as a currency exchange bureau. Should it be recognised that you are using your account for such purposes, BetBoss reserves the right the close your account and seize any available funds from your account. Contractual obligations will be honoured in the absence of a breach of terms and conditions. Credit facilities are not offered by BetBoss nor by its employees or assigns – all bets must be supported by sufficient funds in the Player’s account. BetBoss reserves the right to void any bet that was inadvertently accepted if the Player did not have sufficient funds in the account. Should any funds be remitted to a Player’s account in error, it is the responsibility of the Player to notify the BetBoss customer service team at the earliest possible opportunity. Failure to do so may result in the recovery of such funds by way of an account adjustment, and the termination of the Player’s account. Any winnings subsequent to the error shall be deemed invalid and returned to BetBoss. BetBoss retains an irrevocable right to reverse the transaction.

1.9.          Abusive and aggressive behaviour, including obscene language, directed at any BetBoss representative, will not be tolerated under any circumstances. This applies to all support platforms, including chat, mail, telephone, or any other outlet. Any reports of such behaviour may result in the denial of access to our support platforms and may also be reported to the relevant authorities for action.

1.10.       The Username on all Accounts must be the Player’s registered mobile telephone number, registered using the Player’s authorised government issued photo ID. It is the responsibility of the Player to keep login ID and password secret at all times and to ensure such information is kept secure. If a Player suspects that login information is no longer secure, you are required to immediately contact BetBoss customer service to inform of the security breach and change your security details. In the event that your account is accessed by a third party without your prior consent, BetBoss shall not be liable for any consequences that may occur.

1.11.       The sale, transfer, acquisition, or assignment of accounts to or from other Players is strictly prohibited and may result in the termination of all relevant Players’ Accounts together with the forfeiture of the funds in the Accounts.

1.12.       Accounts that are inactive for a period of 3 months or more will become dormant, irrespective of any balances residing in the Player’s Gaming Wallet. BetBoss shall, in its sole discretion, terminate a dormant account and refund the balance to the Player, or where applicable, take alternative measures as appropriate and provided for by law. It is advised that Players log in to their account on a regular basis to avoid dormant account status.

1.13.       BetBoss reserves an irrevocable right to terminate any Player’s account at any time at its discretion or to suspend an Account at any time for any reason. Without limiting the foregoing, BetBoss may terminate or suspend an Account if:

a)                       It is discovered that a Player has become bankrupt

d)                       BetBoss is requested to do so by the police or any other relevant governing authority or court

e)                       BetBoss considers that any of the above-mentioned events may have occurred or are likely to occur

1.14.       If BetBoss terminates or suspends your account for any reason, you may be liable for any or all claims, losses, liabilities, damages, costs, and expenses incurred or suffered by BetBoss and shall indemnify on demand for such claims. BetBoss shall also be entitled to withhold or retain any amounts that would otherwise have been paid or were payable to you (including any winnings or bonus payments.

1.15.       If it is proved that none of these Terms and Conditions have been breached, any funds available in the Player’s Account will be returned to the Player if BetBoss has terminated the Player’s Account. No interest accrues to any funds owed to any player at any time for any reason, i.e. any refund due to a Player shall not incorporate any interest calculations.

1.16.       The use of certain devices, such as robots, computers or other electronic devices that distort the normal and fair game play is strictly prohibited and discovery of the use of any such device will result in the immediate termination of the account, the confiscations of all funds and earnings due. The activity will be reported to the relevant authorities with any subsequent consequences to be suffered by the Player.
