The closure of a temporary player account will result in all sums being frozen on the account and the account will no longer be operational. All sums added to the account in the form of bonuses or promotional offers will be forfeit.


The closure of a player account will immediately result in a payment to the player’s bank account of the total funds present in the player’s account, on the condition that the player has entered their banking details, sent a bank document which has been verified by the Company and that no fraudulent activity was carried out by the holder resulting in their account being blocked.

If such a payment is not possible due to a fault by the player, in particular if before being closed the player's account was provisional, under verification or suspended, or if the player had not transmitted their bank account details, but also if the player has changed their bank details without having informed the Company, fees shall be applied for the closure of the account, limited to a total amount of 5 euros per account, and debited three months before the end of the six-year time period. These fees apply only to closed accounts for which the transfer of the balance could not be performed for reasons due to the player.

The use of a closed account is not possible. The Miles and all sums added to the account in the form of bonuses or promotional offers will be forfeit.

The Company will inform the player of the motive for the closure of their account by email.
