7. SUSPICIOUS BETTING
(a) "Suspicious Betting” shall mean situations where SDSVI have reasonable grounds to believe that a Wager or a series of Wagers have been placed in suspicious circumstances. Suspicious Betting includes, but not limited to:
(i) Where there is an excessive frequency and/or highly unusual pattern of Wagers (by comparison with betting norms) placed on the same selection(s) in a short space of time;
(ii) Where there is an excessive frequency and/or highly unusual pattern of Wagers placed on the same selection(s) and where the theoretical probability of said selection(s) winning at the time of Wager(s) placement, based on the odds covered on the selection(s) at the time of Wager placement, is largely inconsistent with the theoretical probability of the same selection(s) winning calculated using their starting prices;
(iii) Where the integrity of an event (or events) has been called into question, including, for example, but not limited to where one (or more) of the participants in an event displays exceptional form which SDSVI reasonably believes was known to you or someone connected to you at the time of Wager’s placement but was concealed from the public generally in order to gain an unfair advantage in any Wagers placed on that event (or those events);
(iv) Where SDSVI have reasonable grounds to suspect that a Wager or a string of connected Wagers were placed robotically, by automated means, or other than by Account owner placing each Wager manually via his/her Account;
(v) Where SDSVI reasonably believes that you have used unfair external factors or influences connected with the event(s) which are the subject of any Wager(s);
(vi) Where SDSVI reasonably suspects that you have opened duplicate Accounts or where it reasonably suspect that second or subsequent Accounts are under common control with your Account with a view to concealing the true worth, nature or pattern of Wagers placed by you or on your behalf, even if second or subsequent Accounts are opened under different names;
(vii) Where SDSVI otherwise believes, acting reasonably, that you are acting in concert with others or that you are acting other than on your own behalf;
(viii) Where SDSVI reasonably believes that Wagers have been placed from a location or device other than the location or device which you claim to have used to place a Wager; or
(ix) Unusual betting activity that cannot be explained and is indicative of match fixing, the manipulation of an event, misuse of inside information, or other prohibited activity.
(b) In the case of any Suspicious Betting, and without restricting other remedies available to SDSVI under applicable law, SDSVI may, acting reasonably, and depending on the circumstances:
(i) Request such further information from you as may be reasonably required by SDSVI to investigate whether the Wager or Wagers constitute Suspicious Betting;
(ii) Suspend or withhold payment of any amounts (or any parts thereof) pending the receipt by SDSVI of satisfactory evidence from you in order for it to determine (acting reasonably) that a placed Wager does not constitute Suspicious Betting. You further acknowledge and accept that SDSVI reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to collect and process any information in connection with your betting patterns, personal data, depositing of funds and any other related information and inquiries that will help it to investigate any suspected breach of these Terms;
(iii) Suspend or withhold payment of any amounts (or any parts thereof), usually for no longer than thirty (30) days but where relevant for such longer period of time as may reasonably be required (for example, pending any investigations by SDSVI, any sport governing body, a gambling regulator, a law enforcement authority or any other third party);
(iv) Void a Wager or a string of connected Wagers (including for example multiples) prior to the event. Where possible, SDSVI shall communicate to you in advance that the Wager(s) has (or have) been voided prior to the (first) event the subject of the Wager(s);
(v) Calculate any winnings based on the starting price of the event(s) the subject of the Wager(s). Where possible, SDSVI shall communicate to you in advance that any Wager(s) will be settled at the starting price; or
(vi) Where there is an excessive frequency and/or unusual pattern of Wagers placed on the same selection(s) in a short space of time and where SDSVI has reasonable grounds to suspect that the Wagers are connected Wagers, limit the payment of winnings in respect of those Wagers (and where necessary with such limitation applied across multiple accounts) to the maximum payout for individual Wagers on any particular market or markets as set out in the Betting Rules.
(c) Where SDSVI has reasonable grounds to believe that you have participated in, or have been connected with, any type of Suspicious Betting, it shall use reasonable efforts to investigate such matter, including, but not limited to, through the use of various collusion, suspicious betting, fraud and cheating detection practices which are used in the gambling industry.
(d) Where a Wager is deemed to be, or is declared, void by SDSVI prior to an event, any sum deducted from your Account with respect to that Wager shall be credited back to your Account.
(e) SDSVI reserves the right to terminate an Account if it reasonably suspects any Suspicious Betting in connection with that Account.
(f) SDSVI reserves the right to seek to recover from you any losses it suffers that are directly or indirectly connected to any of the activities deemed to be Suspicious Betting. This right is without prejudice to any other rights that SDSVI may have whether under these Terms or otherwise under applicable law.

8. ACCOUNT SUSPENSION OR TERMINATION
(a) Without restricting SDSVI’s ability to rely on other remedies that may be available to it, SDSVI may suspend or terminate your Account and/or cancel any Wagers placed by you, at its sole discretion, if you are suspected of any of the following:
(i) Engaging in illegal or fraudulent activity while using the Service;
(ii) Breaching any term of these Terms, the Betting Rules or any of the Governing Documents;

(iv) Unable to meet your payment obligations, have become bankrupt or that you may have self-excluded.
(b) SDSVI may suspend or terminate your Account and/or cancel any Wagers placed by you if SDSVI is required to do so by law.

(i) there is a technological failure; or
(ii) where in its reasonable judgment, there is a palpable error in the terms of a wager offered to, or placed by, any party.
(d) If you have a question relating to your Account, it is your responsibility to notify Customer Support promptly, providing as much information as may be required by the Customer Support agent.

(ii) SDSVI has to withhold the funds in your Account by law or to comply with any advice, request or instruction from any governmental, regulatory or enforcement authority
(f) If an internal or external investigation reasonably demonstrates that you have acted in breach of these Terms, the Governing Documents, any other agreement relevant to your activities on the Services, or that your Account has been linked with fraudulent activity and/or Suspicious Betting, SDSVI reserves the right to seize some or all of the funds in your Account. The disposition of any funds obtained by SDSVI in this manner will be at its sole discretion and/or in accordance with any advice, request, or instruction from any governmental, regulatory or law enforcement authority. In addition, if formally requested by law enforcement, gaming regulators, or taxation or other authorities, or in the event that you fail to provide SDSVI with sufficient information to identify yourself in accordance with SDSVI’s internal procedures or those procedures imposed on it by the gaming regulatory authorities (“Gaming Authorities”) for a Permitted Jurisdiction and/or other authorities, SDSVI may suspend your Account and all functionality relating to the use of your Account (e.g. wager management and withdrawal of funds) and withhold from you any funds in your Account pending the final determination of any criminal or other legal proceedings or investigation to which such a request may relate or until you provide the necessary ‘know your client’ or ‘age verification’ information as appropriate.
(g) For the avoidance of doubt, at no point during any such suspension or termination period will interest accrue to you on any funds in your Account.
9. DEPOSIT AND WITHDRAWALS
(a) Deposits. To wager on sporting events on the Service, you need to deposit funds in your Account. All funds in Accounts are held in a separate account held in the name of SDSVI, the applicable licensed sports pool operator or other party authorized by the relevant State Gaming Authority(ies) for each Permitted Jurisdiction. See https://thescore.bet/legal/state-terms for more details.
Funds deposited via a payment processor may take a few days to clear before they are held in this account, during which time they will be held in the account of the relevant payment processor. The funds in your Account are held on your behalf by way of security to meet any payment obligations you may incur as a result of placing Wagers on the Services or using any of the other products or services supplied by SDSVI. Please note that interest is not payable on the funds held in your Account. You undertake that:
(i) All money that you deposit in your Account originates from a payment source of which you are the legal owner;
(ii) All money that you deposit in your Account is free from and unconnected to any illegality and, in particular, does not originate from any illegal activity or source; and
(iii) All payments made into your Account are authorized and you will not attempt to reverse a payment made into your Account or take any action which will cause such a payment to be reversed by a third party in order to avoid any legitimate liability.
You accept that all transactions on your Account may be subject to anti-money laundering and source of funds due diligence, and that any transactions made on your Account which SDSVI deems suspicious may be reported to the appropriate authorities.
(b) Deposits to your Account can be made using the following methods:
(i) ACH (electronic checking or direct deposit): You can electronically transfer funds between your bank account and your Account.
(ii) DEBIT AND CREDIT CARDS: Debit and Credit cards with a MasterCard or VISA logo can be used to make deposits. Please note that not all issuing banks will process debit and/or credit transactions related to online gaming.
(iii) THESCORE BET PLAY+ CARD: You can electronically transfer funds to your ‘theScore Bet Play+ Card’ and then deposit those funds to your Account.
(iv) WIRE TRANSFER: A direct payment from your bank account into your Account on the Service.
(v) VANILLA DIRECT: You can make cash deposits to your Account using Vanilla Direct at participating retailers in a Permitted Jurisdiction (see https://pay.vanilladirect.com/pages/locations for retailers in your location)
(c) Credit Card Chargeback Fees. Each credit card chargeback transaction that you initiate will be assessed a $50.00 fee, applicable against any available cash balance in your Account at the time such fee is assessed. Any credit card chargeback that you initiate requiring pre-arbitration proceedings will further be assessed a $500.00 fee, applicable against any available cash balance in your Account at the time such fee is assessed.
(d) Withdrawals. SDSVI performs a number of controls and checks before any withdrawal request is processed. These checks are part of SDSVI’s ongoing commitment to maintaining the security of customers’ Account and funds. SDSVI may request a copy of a valid government issued identification from you to confirm your identity when you request a withdrawal. SDSVI may also request evidence of your ownership of and control over the account to which you are directing funds to be deposited. Withdrawals from your Account can be requested as follow:
(i) via the App for ACH, payment network original credit transfer (OCT) via Visa Direct, or theScore Bet Play+ Card withdrawal;
(ii) by contacting Customer Support for wire transfer withdrawal; or
(iii) by contacting Customer Support to facilitate an in person withdrawal at theScore Bet kiosk at the location stated in the respective State Terms (https://thescore.bet/legal/state-terms) for the Permitted Jurisdiction(s) you are physically in.
Once you request a withdrawal, the Customer Support team will process the request and may contact you for further information to process the withdrawal request. SDSVI endeavors to process withdrawals within one (1) business day, however this timeline may be impacted by SDSVI’s internal control procedures and the time it takes to receive any requested documentation. The availability of withdrawn funds may be subject to standard banking restrictions.
(e) Third Party Payment Processors. SDSVI may use one or more third party payment processors to process deposit and withdrawal requests. You acknowledge and understand that SDSVI’s payment processors may impose limits on the number of bank accounts you may associate with your Account, impose limits on the number of credit or debit cards you may use on the Service, perform ‘know-your-customer’ procedures to verify your identity, and perform anti-money laundering, anti-fraud, and source of funds verification when you deposit and withdrawal funds to and from your Account.
(f) Eligible Balance. In order to facilitate the provision of the Services to you in the Permitted Jurisdictions, SDSVI allows you to direct SDSVI to make your Eligible Balance (as defined below) available to you for wagering in each Permitted Jurisdiction in which you have an Account. As you travel into each Permitted Jurisdiction, you must consent to SDSVI making your Eligible Balance available in your Account for the Permitted Jurisdiction in which you are physically located while you use the Services. Each Permitted Jurisdiction may have its own criteria in determining whether certain funds are permitted to be used for wagering, which shall be the determination of existing funds that will be made available to you in each Permitted Jurisdiction (the “Eligible Balance”). For example, if you have an Account in a Permitted Jurisdiction which permits credit card deposits and subsequently travel to another Permitted Jurisdiction which prohibits credit card deposits, your Eligible Balance for wagering will not include funds that are associated with credit card deposits. You hereby acknowledge and agree that certain Permitted Jurisdiction may restrict the availability of certain portions of the funds in your Account for wagering, and in such instances, such portions of funds in your Account remains on your Account and may be withdrawn from your Account, but will not be an Eligible Balance for wagering within that Permitted Jurisdiction. Funds, as used in this section, shall mean cash and cash equivalent, including without limitation, free bets, bonuses, and other credits, available to be used for wagering purposes within the Services.
10. PLACING WAGERS
(a) Customers can only wager up to the amount of the Eligible Balance or the limit as set out in the Betting Rules, whichever is the lesser. The minimum and maximum wager per selection is determined exclusively by SDSVI and is stated in the App.
(b) SDSVI reserves the right to accept or decline the whole or part of any proposed wager.
(c) Wagers placed by you prior to the receipt by SDSVI of cleared funds from a payment processor may be voided at SDSVI’s sole discretion.
(d) Each Wager will be given an individual number as confirmation of the wager. Wagers will be valid (subject to meeting the criteria for placing a wager laid down in the Terms) if accepted by the App and a wager confirmation code is provided by SDSVI. SDSVI is not liable for the settlement of any wagers where it has not issued a confirmation of acceptance of the wager or where it is unable to display that wager in the ‘My Bets’ pages of the Service. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that all of the details of each wager are correct. Once a wager has been confirmed by SDSVI, that wager cannot be cancelled by the customer. If you have any concern as to whether your wager has been accepted, please log in and go to the ‘My Bets’ pages of the Service where details of all live wagers entered into by you will be displayed.
(e) YOU MUST EXERCISE YOUR OWN JUDGEMENT IN PLACING A WAGER. YOU HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE AND AGREE THAT ANY AND ALL SPORTS DATA, ANALYSIS, NEWS, EDITORIAL CONTENT, REPORTS, RECOMMENDATIONS, SUGGESTIONS, AND OTHER INFORMATION PRESENTED ON THE APP, THE SERVICES, OR OTHERWISE MADE AVAILABLE BY, SDSVI, AND/OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES, SERVICE PROVIDERS, CONTRACTORS, EMPLOYEES AND/OR PERSONNEL ARE PROVIDED ‘AS IS’ WITHOUT ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ON THEIR ACCURACY, CORRECTNESS, TIMELINESS, OR USEFULNESS. FURTHER, IN THE CASE OF LIVE BETTING EVENTS, YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SEE OR OTHERWISE BE PROVIDED WITH THE MOST UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION IN THE SERVICE IN RELATION TO THE RELEVANT EVENT, INCLUDING FOR EXAMPLE (BUT WITHOUT LIMITATION), THROUGH DELAYED COVERAGE, A SLOW CONNECTION OR EQUIPMENT, DELAYED SCORING OR OTHER DATA UPDATES, OR OTHER SYSTEM FLAWS, FAULTS, ERRORS OR SERVICE INTERRUPTION. SDSVI SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DELAY IN RELAYING UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION AND/OR DATA FOR ANY EVENT.
(f) You agree to pay SDSVI for all Wagers that are placed with it using your Account.
(g) Wagers must be made via the Apps.
(h) Please familiarize yourself with betting and gaming terminology and how the various wagers and games are operated.

SDSVI cannot accept any responsibility if you place a wager in circumstances where you do not fully understand any of the terms involved or how the wager or game is operated.
(i) On occasion the prices available across the various Services may not be the same: for example, a price on an App may not be the same as those prices available on other Services.
