It is the player’s responsibility to ensure — before signing up at the casino and agreeing to these terms and conditions — that they are not violating any rules in the jurisdiction in which they live.

If it is determined by Cocoa that any information it was given by the player is false, Cocoa reserves the right to suspend a player’s account along with all relating cash-ins. The account will remain suspended until such time as Cocoa has determined in its sole discretion that the player’s information was authentic and accurate.

If it is detected by Cocoa that a player has violated this term, action may and will be taken including banning the player from future promotions and/or play, confiscating of net winnings, and the offering of such information to a casino industry database of “restricted players”.
By playing any game at the casino, the player warrants that the player is familiar with the rules of such game and acknowledges that the rules of each game are available through using the “help” facility at the casino.
When depositing with debit/credit card, additional third-party costs may be applied by the Player's credit card company and/or the card associations and as such are beyond the Company's control. Please note that you may be charged an additional foreign transaction fee per transaction depending on the deposited amount by the credit card processing banks. Usually, foreign transaction fees are a percentage of the amount of each foreign currency purchase, with no minimum or maximum, reaching even 6-8% at times. These are fees charged by the transaction processors such as VISA and MC. Most issuing banks choose to pass this fee along to their customer.
The casino reserves the right to request a Security Verification Form at any time. If a person does not return a faxback form and the required personal identification within 30 days of such request, risks suspension and possible forfeiture of his/her account. In such case, the casino may unilaterally determine resolution of any account funds.

MISUSE OF ACCOUNT
The casino reserves the right to suspend your account pending investigation in the event of the casino having reasonable grounds for suspecting that you have been involved in any form of collusion, syndication or fraud during your use of the casino platform, website and/or systems. We also reserve the right to withhold the whole or part of your account balance, close your account permanently, as well as recover from your account the amount of any winnings, pay-outs or bonuses which have been affected by any of the following activities:
Collusion: The joint effort of two or more individuals to gain an unfair advantage over the software and other players via pooling of funds to achieve unnatural increase of available bankroll through multiple bonus awards (similarly to multi-accounting) to benefit/take advantage from game engine design. This is usually done at a casino in order to increase the total number of deposit bonuses awarded, thereby un-naturally maximizing probability of achieving a large winning slot pay-out (for example: slot bonus round) while ensuring that the pay-out of such an event is awarded to one of the colluding members, effectively detracting from the winning potential of any other players using the casino.
Syndication: We become aware that you are a member and/or form part of a syndicate, club or group where players receive advantage play strategies in order to create positive expectancy scenarios through the acquisition of promotional offers.
Exploitation of a fault, loophole or error in our or any third party software provided for the services of this agreement.
We become aware that you have been found guilty of fraudulent or collusive behavior at another online gaming business including charge-backs, collusion, or criminal activities.
We become aware that you have charged back any or denied any of the transfers, deposits and purchases to your account in a fraudulent manner.
Make use of any automated play software such as "bots", or any type of simulation tools or systems designed to provide an unfair advantage over the casino.
As a player who makes use of this casino, you agree that you are not colluding or attempting to collude, nor intending to participate directly or indirectly in a collusion scheme which involves the sharing of winnings between selected players, sharing of funds, or working together toward mutual end goal while benefitting from multiple acquisition incentive offers, to the detriment of other players whom are not involved in the colluding party. You also agree that you will inform the casino through one of the means necessary should you suspect a player to be colluding, or planning to collude with other players. You also agree that you do not form part of a syndicate or group that engages in advantage play strategies.
We will thoroughly investigate any case in which we believe there may be any existence of an element of fraudulent activity, collusion, syndication or illegal activity. We also reserve the right to inform our business units, processing companies, electronic payment providers or other financial institutions we use, of your identity and of any suspected unlawful, fraudulent or improper activity.
