4. Games

4.1. Skilled Gaming for Prizes

Each member acknowledges that the outcome of the arenas offered on the Site are directly related to the number of members participating, and the skill levels of each member participating. GamelinG does not comment or have knowledge of the probability of one member winning an arena vs. another member, and makes no representations about an individual member's chances of winning.

Prizes are generally cash amounts, which are paid to you through electronic third-party payment processors. The prizes offered in all arenas will be disclosed at the beginning of such arenas. If an arena has to close prematurely, such as for maintenance or technical problems, the Site may attempt to reschedule, or process refunds if applicable.

4.2. Determination of Winners

The results and winners of each arena offered on the Site will be determined by GamelinG, and such determinations are final. By signing up joining and/or participating in any arena, you agree to be bound by these determinations.

4.3. Game Play

The Site is not responsible for any technical, hardware or software malfunctions, lost or unavailable network connections, disconnects from your game play on your platform, or any incorrect or inaccurate results that may be posted on your online game. You may not: (a) gain unauthorized access to the Site's systems or any account other than your own), interfere with the communications, procedures or performance of the Site or deliberately damage or undermine the Site; (b) affect the outcome of your online game play on your platform by means of or with the assistance of macros, bots, automated programs, screen analysis utilities, player collusion, any type of modifications, memory readers, telepathy, alien technology or similar methods or to otherwise commit fraud in relation to the Site; or (c) alter the human skill component of any game played on your platform. Any attempt to do so is a violation of both civil and criminal laws and will result not only in the termination of your user account and forfeiture of all winnings, bonuses and incentives to which you would otherwise be entitled, but potentially lead to civil and/or criminal prosecution. The Site, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to terminate any person's account who is suspected of tampering with their game results for the arena entered, or who otherwise violates these rules and to seek legal enforcement to the greatest extent possible, including referral to criminal prosecution authorities.

Disputes:

First time offenders deemed to have knowingly violated the T&Cs may receive an initial warning along with a minimum penalty of a thirty (30) day account suspension. Repeat offenders will be deemed to be intentionally violating the T&Cs and will face a minimum six (6) month suspension for a second violation and permanent suspension for a third violation.

Any dispute filed without evidence will be considered invalid.

Arena Result Disputes: Any and all arena evidence must be sent to support within two (2) hours of the scheduled challenge start time. This two (2) hour review period will be used by site administrators to examine challenge evidence and to assign the win to the appropriate user. Any dispute that is filed without evidence will be considered invalid. If only one party submits evidence during this two (2) hour time frame, the user that provides the evidence will be deemed the winner of the arena, while the opposing user will receive a loss. If no evidence has been reported by either party within the two (2) hour time frame the arena will be either cancelled or marked as incomplete. Once an arena has been cancelled and marked incomplete, the results are irreversible and cannot be adjusted. The GamelinG Customer Engagement team has the sole discretion to ask users to provide additional evidence in order to determine the accurate winner. After thirty-six (36) hours all arena results will be final with no undoing, cancelling, or re-assigning winners.

Unresolved Arenas: If a winner cannot be established from an investigation by the GamelinG Customer Support team, then the challenge will be cancelled.

Claiming a false win: If a user claims a "win" in an arena that was either; not played, not completed, drawn or lost, an automatic forfeit and suspension will be issued, following on the suspension guideline listed above.

Submitting false evidence: If a user submits "false evidence"; evidence that has previously been submitted or archived from a previous arena, evidence that has been altered in any way, or false evidence that has been created, then that user will automatically forfeit the challenge and immediately face a suspension, based on the suspension guideline listed above.

Abusive behaviour on platform: Any abusive, obscene, lewd, threatening or insulting behaviour by a user towards GamelinG Support staff or other players on the GamelinG Site will result in their immediate suspension for an indefinite period of time as determined by GamelinG Support staff.

Cheating: Any users who are caught cheating/boosting their statistics in any arena on GamelinG will be suspended, based on the suspension guideline listed above. If cheating or boosting of records occurs during any bracket, leaderboard, or any other style arena, the user will be immediately disqualified with no entry fee reimbursement.

Lagging and IP Booting: Users who are caught lagging/IP booting arenas will face an automatic loss and suspension. The suspension penalty will follow the suspension guideline listed above. When disputing a lagging arena, video evidence of the lag is required in order for your dispute to be validated. You must be able to provide video evidence that clearly identifies the exit of the arena. When playing an arena with a poor connectivity level, be sure to quit before either you or your opponent gain a significant advantage in the arena. When a user disconnects from an arena while their opponent has a significant advantage, the user who disconnected will receive an automatic loss. If the arena is played and completed in its entirety, the results of the arena will stand. The GamelinG Customer Support team has the sole discretion to adjust end arena results at any time.

5. Financial

5.1. Entry Fees and Prizes

When a member participates in a pay-to-enter arena (a "Cash Game"), any entry fees for such Cash Games paid by the member represent a "Platform Fee" to GamelinG made solely for facilities provided by the Site for the setting up and management of all Cash Games. By participating in a Cash Game and paying this fee to GamelinG, each member acknowledges that these funds are held by GamelinG for such Services and that the member grants an irrevocable authority to GamelinG to pay the winner of the Cash Game the prize associated with such Cash Game.

Members should also be aware that the total entry fees paid by members in any given Cash Game are not paid out as prizes, as GamelinG retains part of the entry fee as a service fee on all Cash Games played. This fee allows for the continued operation and maintenance of the Site and the development of additional features and content for the Site in the future. The cash prizes in each arena represent an amount determined by GamelinG in its absolute discretion and is subject to change without further notice to you.

5.2. Prize Payments

Your winnings are awarded to you in their entirety, and all state and local taxes due in connection with any winnings awarded to you are your sole liability and responsibility.

5.3. Inactivity Policy

For any account that has been dormant, GamelinG reserves the right to assess a maintenance fee of $2.00 per month from the remaining balance on deposit. A dormant account is any account in which the member has not logged on to the Site in three (3) consecutive months. The inactivity fee will commence on the day after becoming dormant until the player's balance is depleted to zero.

5.4. Currency

You hereby acknowledge and agree that:

  • All references to dollars or "$" on the Site are references to Singapore Dollars ("SGD"), and all transactions (entry fees, refunds and prizes) will be denominated in SGD unless otherwise expressly stated;
  • As a result, if you make a payment to, or you receive a payment from us, in connection with your use of this Site, currency conversion may apply.
  • For the purpose of allowing you to make a payment or receive a payment from us, all currency conversions shall be executed by an exchange rate offered by your financial institution; and

IN EVERY CASE, AND WITHOUT LIMITING SECTION 10.1, GAMELING EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO ANY CURRENCY CONVERSION IN CONNECTION WITH THIS SITE, INCLUDING WITH RESPECT TO ANY POSTED OR ACTUAL RATES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION WITH RESPECT TO AUTHENTICITY, ACCURACY, COMPLETENESS, ERRORS, OMISSION, TYPOGRAHIC ERRORS, DISRUPTION, DELAY, INTERRUPTION, FAILURE, DELETION, OR DEFECT IN CONNECTION WITH SUCH RATES, AND FURTHER EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY AND ALL LOSSES DUE TO CHANGES IN EXCHANGE RATES WHICH MAY OCCUR.
