Credit Checking and Age Verification
1. When deciding whether to accept your registration, we may supply the information you have given us to authorised credit reference agencies to confirm your identity and card details. They will check any details we disclose to them against any databases (public or private) to which they have access and will keep a record of that check.

For your protection, any telephone calls to our Customer Care Team may be recorded and monitored.
2. We will not open an account unless we believe, acting reasonably, that you are 18 years or over. It is illegal in the UK for anyone to facilitate gambling for anyone aged under 18 years and if you are under 18 years of age and in the UK you will be guilty of a criminal offence.
3. We are entitled to verify any information you give us when you open an account, to ensure you are over the age of 18 years and we may ask you to provide us with proof you are over 18 years of age. You will not be able to withdraw any winnings until our verification process has been satisfactorily completed. In any event, if you have failed to satisfactorily complete our age verification checks within 72 hours of making your first deposit, we are entitled to freeze your account, prevent you from gambling any further until you have satisfactorily completed these checks and, if upon completion of age verification you are ultimately shown to be underage, we will return all stakes to you but are under no obligation to pay any winnings.

3. At all times, where there is any disagreement as to the details of the bet, our records shall prevail.
4. A bet is deemed to be valid only following electronic confirmation of acceptance. Only then is it logged in our server. This acceptance is demonstrated with the generation of a Bet Identification log report, where a Bet Identification log report is generated at the time the bet is submitted to the server and acceptance is only confirmed once the status of the bet has been confirmed by the generation of a Bet Identification log report. Any bet that has not been officially transmitted into the server in accordance with the above will be deemed void.
5. We reserve the right to refuse all or any part of a bet offered to us, void any accepted bets and withhold settlement if we have reason to believe: a) You are under 18 years of age; b) You are involved in fraud, money laundering, collusion, manipulation of our software, match rigging or cheating of any kind; c) You are in a jurisdiction (or citizen of a jurisdiction) that renders the provision of our products or services to you, or your use of them, illegal.
Complaints and Disputes
1. In this section of our Terms and Conditions a “complaint” means a complaint about any gambling transactions and a “dispute” means any complaint which is not resolved following verbal notification through our Customer Care Team and which relates to the outcome of a gambling transaction. All disputes are dealt with under our Complaints Procedure. Complaints will not be heard by us if they are not raised with our Customer Care Team within 14 days of the event occurring to which the complaint relates.
2. In relation to all complaints or disputes, we reserve the right to record all telephone and email communications. In the event of a dispute as to the contents of any such communication, reference will be made to such records and to our transaction database which, in the absence of any contrary evidence, shall be decisive.
3. It will be a condition of your agreement with us that any complaints and disputes are, and remain, confidential both while we seek a resolution and afterwards. You agree that you will not disclose the existence, nature or detail of any complaints and disputes to any third party (which will include the discussion of any such complaints and disputes in any chat room or forum offered by ourselves or any third party). If you do so, that will be considered a breach of the Terms and Conditions and we will no longer be obliged to continue seeking a resolution to your complaint and dispute and will be entitled to freeze (and potentially close) your account.
We take complaints very seriously. If you have any cause to complain about anything that has happened as a consequence of your dealings with us, you should notify us by contacting our Customer Care Team on +44 (0)845 460 1025.

All correspondence relating to complaints must include your full name and mobile phone number. Complaints must only relate to gambling transactions and not relate to chat room activity or any other non-gaming transactions. We will deal with your complaint as quickly as we reasonably can. Where necessary, we may request appropriate evidence from you for the purposes of settling your complaint. If a complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction by the use of our Complaints Procedure, you may refer the matter to an independent adjudicator. Intouch Games Ltd is registered with the Independent Betting Adjudication Service (IBAS) whose details will be provided to you in the event that you remain dissatisfied at the end of our internal procedure. IBAS will not consider complaints until our internal procedure has been completed. View our full Complaints Procedure here.
1. Where we offer to match a Player’s deposit in part or in full, as part of a promotion, this money is provided for Players to bet with, and it may never be withdrawn as cash.
2. We reserve the right to insist that Players bet the full amount of their own deposit before they can bet with the free money we credit to them.

You must ensure that the promotion you are interested in is still available, that you are eligible, and that you understand any terms which apply to it.

All bonuses can be used to win real money at the casino. Given that any single bet can produce a sizeable win certain restrictions are placed on the bonuses as follows:
- The player’s deposited money and bonus money will be placed into Bonus Credit.
- All wins will be placed into Cashable Credit and can be withdrawn at any time.
- Cashable Credit is always spent to play first before Bonus Credit. When all Cashable Credit is spent Bonus Credit will be spent.

When the Player makes their first withdrawal any Bonus Credit not spent up to the value of the first deposit match bonus given will be forfeited. When the Player makes additional withdrawals no Bonus Credit will be removed.
Conditions for withdrawals
When a deposit has been received from a Player, there is a minimum withdrawal amount of £10 by bank transfer and £20 by cheque.
When there has been no deposit received from a Player, the minimum first withdrawal from an account following a win is £30.
We reserve the right to withhold or cancel withdrawals gained from playing with Bonus credit (see below) on second or subsequent accounts opened by a Player when no deposit has been made. Players may continue to play on second or subsequent accounts but may not withdraw.
Regular Player Bonus
We give our regular players the most generous bonuses. This means that any money won from a regular player’s bonuses can be withdrawn at any time. This will not affect any remaining bonus money.
Example: Player has received £20 Regular Player Bonus. Player spends £4 and wins £500. Player now has £500 cashable and £16 bonus credit. The player can withdraw the £500 cashable at any time and the remaining bonus money will not be removed.
Players will receive regular updates by text message advising of bonuses received.
The value of gifts from the Loyalty Shop will be equivalent to no more than three times the value of deposits made during the previous calendar month. (Our minimum deposit is £3 at any time.) When no deposits have been made, claims from the Loyalty Shop will be limited to a maximum value of £10.
When a Player is placing more than 90% of their total stakes with m Fortune on playing Bingo, Loyalty Points earned (and Loyalty Shop claims) will be limited to three times the value of lifetime deposits on the Player’s account. mFortune reserves the right to void any excess Loyalty Points.
Non-compliance with the Bonus Terms and Conditions shall be deemed to be `Promotion Abuse’ and as such shall give the mFortune Mobile Phone Casino Management the right, at its sole discretion, to take the following actions against such abusers:
- All winnings on any account(s) opened will be null and void and all withdrawals will be cancelled where play has been deemed abusive.
- Abusing Player accounts may be terminated with immediate effect.
- Players found to be abusing promotions will be barred from receiving further promotional offers at the Casino and their account will be closed at our discretion.
In addition, where there is any evidence of a series of bets placed by a customer or group of customers, which due to a deposit bonus or other promotional offer results in guaranteed customer profits irrespective of the outcome, we reserve the right to void any bet funded by the deposit bonus.
Network Operator and Other Charges
You are solely responsible for any connection, or other charges levied by your network operator when you register to play the Games, download the Software, place bets or communicate with us. These charges shall form no part of any bets placed.

The English language version of this Agreement will prevail over any other language version issued by us.
