8. CONNECTION FAILURES DURING GAME PLAY
A 'Draw' is the selection of a result for a game on a random basis. Our games are defined as either "Draw On Demand" or "Common Draw" games.
Draw On Demand Games
- A game where the result is unique to each player (eg virtual games,
slot machines, scratchcards, keno, video poker and single-player
If connection is lost whilst playing a single-stage Draw On Demand game (eg a scratchcard), the game will be completed automatically for you.
If connection is lost whilst playing a multi-stage Draw
On Demand game (eg a slot machine that has a bonus round) and your game
has entered the second stage, your game details will be retained so
that you can log back in and continue play. If your game did not enter
the second stage before loss of connection, the game will be completed
automatically for you.
When connection is lost during a Draw
On Demand game, only the current game is handled. If Auto Play was used
by the customer to specify further games, the pending games will be
cancelled. No funds will be removed from the customer's account in
relation to the cancelled pending games.
Common Draw Games - A game where more than one player is able to bet on the outcome of a specific draw, and the draw determines the results for all players (eg Toto Draw and common table roulette).
In the case of Common Draw
games, draws will proceed even if you are not logged in. Therefore, all
Games Bets that were placed successfully prior to connection loss will
be honoured and will be settled (win
or lose) in the usual manner. If you reconnect to the game before all
Games Bets are settled, any remaining unsettled bets will be visible in
the bet slip.
