- A unique username (your username may contain only letters, numbers, underscore and hyphen symbols) and a password which means only you can access your account.

20. ERRORS OR OMISSIONS
20.1 A number of circumstances may arise where a bet or wager is accepted, or a payment is made, by us in error. A non-exhaustive list of such circumstances is as follows:
20.1.1 where we mis-state any odds or terms of a bet or gaming wager to you as a result of obvious error or omission in inputting the information or setting up a market, or as a result of a computer malfunction;
20.1.2 where we have made a ‘palpable error’. A palpable error occurs where:
18.104.22.168 in relation to bets placed prior to an event taking place, the prices/terms offered are materially different from those available in the general market; or
22.214.171.124 in relation to any event, the price/terms offered at the time the bet is placed are clearly incorrect given the probability of the event occurring;
20.1.3 where we have continued to accept bets on a market which should have been suspended, including where the relevant event is in progress (except where ‘in-running’ bets are accepted) or had already finished (sometimes referred to as ‘late bets’);
20.1.4 where an error has been made as a result of a Prohibited Practice;
20.1.5 where we should not have accepted, or have the right to cancel or re-settle, a bet pursuant to the Betting Rules (for example due to ‘Related Contingencies’);
20.1.6 where an error is made by us as to the amount of winnings/returns that are paid to You, including as a result of a manual or computer input error; or
20.1.7 where an error has been made by us as to the number of free bets and/or bonuses that are credited to Your Account,
such circumstances being referred to as an “Error”.
20.2 We reserve the right to:
20.2.1 correct any Error made on a bet placed and re-settle the same at the correct price or terms which were available or should have been available through the Operator (absent the publishing error) at the time that the bet was placed and the bet will be deemed to have taken place on the terms which were usual for that bet; or 20.2.2 where it is not reasonably practicable to correct and re-settle under 20.2.1 above, to declare the bet void and return Your stake into Your Account; or
20.4 Neither we (including our employees or agents) nor our partners or suppliers shall be liable for any loss, including loss of winnings, that results from any Error by us or an error by you.
20.5 You shall inform us as soon as reasonably practicable should You become aware of any Error.
20.6 Where you have used funds which have been credited to Your Account or awarded to you as a result of an Error to place subsequent bets or play games, we may cancel such bets and/or withhold any winnings which you may have won with such funds, and if we have paid out on any such bets or gaming activities, such amounts shall be deemed to be held by you on trust for us and you shall immediately repay to us any such amounts when a demand for repayment is made by us to you.
