Legal


Is this a gambling site?

We are not a gambling site as we are considered a game of skill (see definition below). Gambling is defined at a state level and almost always requires three elements to be present 1)award of a prize, 2)contest or game based on chance, 3) consideration. If any of these elements are not present then the activity would not be considered gambling. The contest/game is a skill based game and therefore the basis of chance has been eliminated.


Legal Definition of a skill-based game.

A skill-based game is defined as a game where skill predominates over chance in the produced results.


Location Verification.

Before a withdrawal of credits can be requested for cash, identification must be submitted showing the location of your residency. In addition to this documentation we use tracking methods to verify location.
