Game Play Network, Inc. (“b spot”) operates an advance deposit wagering service that it makes available to eligible consumers in certain authorized states by way of: (i) the web site located at https://www.bspot.com (the "Website"); (ii) the b spot mobile application (the "Mobile Application"); and (iii) b spot's proprietary application programming interface that integrates with certain trusted third party applications. As used herein, the term "Service" refers collectively to all means and methods by which a consumer may: (i) become an approved user of b spot's advance deposit wagering service; and/or (ii) utilize the advance deposit wagering service to place wagers and/or use other features and functionalities offered via the Service.
Use of the Service is subject to all applicable State and Federal laws and regulations and can only be used by natural persons who are twenty one (21) years of age or older. By registering for an account or using Service, you represent and warrant that: (a) you are a natural person who is twenty one (21) years of age or older; (b) you are a United States citizen or resident alien: (c) the residential address you provided is true and correct and that you are a resident of the state associated with such residential address; (d) all registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; (e) at all times you will maintain the accuracy of such information including name, primary residence address, email address and phone number by contacting b spot Player Services; and (f) your Account is only for your own personal use and you will not: (i) use your Account in connection with a commercial business or otherwise for commercial purposes; and (ii) allow others to access or use your Account. If your primary residence address changes, you agree not to use your b spot account until after b spot has verified the new address. b spot may, in its sole discretion, refuse to offer the Service to any person or entity and change its eligibility criteria at any time. This provision is void where prohibited by law and the right to access the Service is revoked in such jurisdictions.
Returned Items. You acknowledge that b spot (or b spot's payment processing vendor for ACH transactions) may charge you a returned item fee of twenty five dollars ($25.00) or such higher amount as determined by b spot's payment processing vendor for ACH transactions (the “Returned Item Fee”) if your bank account has insufficient funds to cover any transaction initiated by you to deposit funds into your Account. You authorize b spot (or b spot's payment processing vendor for ACH transactions) to collect the Returned Item Fee from other forms of payment you have previously used to make deposits into your Account. Additionally, you understand and agree that b spot reserves the right to suspend your Account until such time as you have paid all Returned Item Fees to b spot or b spot's payment processing vendor for ACH transactions.
Credit Card Transactions. The Service may allow you to fund your Account by making a deposit via a credit card. In such event, please be aware that your credit card issuer may consider such a deposit to be a cash advance transaction that subjects you to additional costs and/or fees under your agreement with your credit card issuer. b spot is not liable for any fees or costs imposed on you by your credit card issuer.
Other Funding Instruments or Mechanisms. The Service may allow you to fund your Account by making a deposit via other funding instruments or mechanisms (collectively an “Other Funding Mechanism”). Your use of an Other Funding Mechanism will be governed by the terms and conditions imposed by the applicable Other Funding Mechanism and nothing herein shall modify, amend, or supersede your agreement with the applicable Other Funding Mechanism.
To the extent that you provide b spot payment information, you represent that you are an authorized user of the chosen method of payment, and that all payment information you provide, including but not limited to your name, credit card or other payment account identifying number, expiration date, security codes, billing address, and any other payment information will be current, complete, true, and accurate.
b spot reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to terminate and close an Account for any reason whatsoever and without explanation. In the event an Account is terminated and closed, b spot shall return to you the balance of any funds in your Account at the time of termination and closure, together with a closing Account statement. Likewise, you retain full discretion to end or terminate your Account and discontinue use of the Service at any time. If a User moves to a state where wagering services are not available, b spot shall be required to terminate the Account and return all remaining funds. In the event an Account is terminated, b spot shall return to you the balance of any funds in your account at the time of termination.
b spot will report wager winnings and withhold taxes in accordance with applicable federal and state law. If a User Account is subject to IRS reporting and/or withholding requirements, b spot will send a Form W2-G summarizing information for tax purposes. Upon written request, b spot will provide a User with summarized tax information on the User's wagering activities. Pursuant to these reporting requirements, you agree to indemnify and hold harmless b spot for any claims, demands, liens or judgments based on non-payment or underpayment of such taxes. You hereby grant to b spot a priority lien and security interest in all of your right, title and interest in and to the proceeds of any wager to the extent required to satisfy any taxing authority claims or liens. You agree to file any financing statements or other appropriate document with the relevant governmental authorities to assure the validity, priority and enforceability of the claim or lien. You shall not grant a lien or security interest on the proceeds of any wager to any third party without the prior written consent of b spot. You are responsible for the payment of all applicable sales, use, gaming or other taxes for use of the Service and/or wagers placed via the Service.
Requests for withdrawals can be made via the Service, by mail to Player Services, 14725 SW Millikan Way, Beaverton OR 97006 or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org . In connection with withdrawal requests, b Spot will disburse remaining Account funds to the Account Holder via the same Funding Source (as defined in Section 3.3) that the Account Holder used to fund his/her Account, unless: (i) regulatory requirements mandate a different disbursement method; (ii) the original Funding Source does not allow for incoming deposits; (iii) b Spot in its discretion agrees to a different disbursement method upon the request of the Account Holder; or (iv) the withdrawal request is made by mail. Withdrawal requests by mail will be processed within five (5) business days and paid by check in the registered name of the Account Holder and mailed to the verified residence address of the Account Holder. With respect to account withdrawal requests made by phone, e-mail, or through the Service, b spot will use commercially reasonable efforts to process such requests within five (5) business days.
Users may access their transaction history/account statement via the Service or by contacting b spot Player Services by phone at 844.462.7768 or via e-mail at email@example.com . Account statements will only be delivered to the verified residence address or email address on file. b spot reserves the right to place time limitations on b spot's maintenance of account history information provided that such time period complies with applicable law.
b spot reserves the right to deactivate your Account if there is no wagering activity for twelve (12) consecutive months or, in the event that an inactive Account has funds on deposit, to assess a minimal account maintenance service charge of no more than two dollars ($2.00) per month, until the account is no longer inactive or the balance reaches zero and the Account is closed, whichever occurs first. In the event the balance of any funds in your Account at the time of termination and closure is less than two dollars ($2.00), the balance will not be credited to you and will be retained by b spot as an Account termination processing fee.
You may use your b spot Account to place wagers through our traditional ADW interface (“b Racing”) where you specify the amount and type of wager, along with the relevant horse(s) and race(s). You may also use your Account to place wagers through the Service's Games interface, where you specify the amount of your wager, but request that b spot generate the remaining wager details for you to confirm. Results of wagers placed through the Service's Games interface are revealed to you by playing free on-line or mobile games that are included in b spot's games portfolio. The specific terms applicable to wagering via the Service's Games interface are outlined in Section 4.2 below.
You understand that all wagers placed from your Account will be combined and merged with all other wagers in commingled pools at the host racetrack conducting the race and are subject to host track rules and restrictions. All wagers placed will be in US Dollars. In the case of multiple wagers such as a daily double or an exacta box, the base wager is multiplied by the number of combinations to determine the amount of the total wager. Wagers will only be accepted in amounts that do not exceed the current balance of a User's wagering account. All wagers confirmed by you will be withdrawn from your Account prior to submission of the wager. b spot reserves the right to refuse any wagering transaction for any reason.
b spot does not allow for the cancellation of any wagers once the wagers have been confirmed in accordance with the Service's confirmation process. By placing a wager through b spot, you agree to the recording of all Account transactions including any calls made to b spot business or customer service offices.
Geo-Location Checks and Location Services Data. By using the Service, You hereby authorize b spot and any relevant hardware manufacturers and associated vendors to verify your location coordinate data. If you have disabled the location services settings or functionality on your mobile device, b spot may not be able to verify your location and in such event b spot reserves the right to prevent you from using the Service. b spot uses geo-location checks and location services data to comply with b spot's advance deposit wagering licenses and applicable law.
Before you may place wagers through the Service's Games interface, you must carefully read, understand, and agree to the following additional terms. If you do not fully understand and agree to any of the following terms, you should not wager via the Service's Games interface.
By placing wagers through the Service's Games interface, you authorize b spot to use its proprietary algorithms to: (i) generate a mix of wagers on your behalf having an aggregate dollar value equaling the total amount you have chosen to wager; or (ii) generate a single wager on your behalf equaling the total amount you have chosen to wager (collectively referred to herein as the “Wagering Mix”).
The Wagering Mix may consist of one or more of the following types of wagers: Win, Place, Show, Win-Place-Show, Exacta, Quinella, Trifecta, Superfecta, Daily Double, Pick 3, Pick 6, or such other wager types or categories that may be available in the applicable jurisdiction. The wagers will be identified for wagering pools on an upcoming scheduled race(s) to be run at a b spot partner racetrack for which the identified wagering pools are available.
You understand and acknowledge that the Wagering Mix generated by b spot is provided solely as a mechanism to streamline the wagering process for individuals who seek a simpler method of wagering, and is not intended to handicap or provide higher probability of winning more money as compared to any other method of selecting wagers. You understand and agree that, as with any wagering activity, you may lose up to the entire amount wagered when using our Service.
Once the Wagering Mix has been generated, you can: (i) review the full wager details of each wager in the proposed Wagering Mix by clicking on the “Wager Details” link prior to confirming the wagers; and (ii) review the Program details for the wagers in the Wagering Mix. If you wish to change the Wagering Mix, you may do so by pressing the “reshuffle” button to generate a new set of wagers. You understand and acknowledge that, by pressing the “confirm” button, you are agreeing to and adopting the wagers identified in the Wagering Mix and instructing b spot to place those wagers for you. You must confirm before any wagers will be placed. Once you confirm, your wagers are placed and cannot be cancelled or modified.
Substitute Wagers. Due to technical or other reasons, b spot may not be able to place one or more wagers in your Wagering Mix (an “Unavailable Wager”). The following provisions shall govern b spot's placement of a substitute wager in the event of an Unavailable Wager.
With respect to those Users who have elected not to see “Wager Details” in connection with wagers placed by such Users, the clicking of the “Confirm Wager” button shall authorize b spot to do one of the following in the event of an Unavailable Wager: (1) b spot may place a substitute wager for the same amount as the Unavailable Wager and in a similar pari-mutuel wagering pool type; or (2) b spot may refund the amount of the Unavailable Wager to the applicable User's Account.
With respect to those Users who have elected to see “Wager Details” in connection with wagers placed by such Users, such Users may opt out of b spot placing a substitute wager in the event of an Unavailable Wager by clicking on the button immediately above the “Confirm Wager” button. If such Users do not click the opt-out button above the “Confirm Wager” button, the clicking of the “Confirm Wager” button shall authorize b spot to place a substitute wager for the same amount as the Unavailable Wager and in a similar pari-mutuel wagering pool type.
You understand and acknowledge that the winnings or losses that are revealed to you through playing one or more of the games in the b spot games portfolio are determined solely by the results of the pari-mutuel wagers that were placed. The level of skill you exercise in playing the games or other game mechanics have no bearing on and do not in any way affect the total amount of money you win or lose. The games are merely an entertaining mechanism to display the results of your completed wagers.
By choosing to place wagers via the Service's Games interface, you authorize b spot and b spot's game developer partners to (1) reveal the results of your wagers to you, and (2) enhance said results by adding cash, virtual rewards or other consideration to your b spot Account, with or without prior notice, and whether as part of a marketing promotion or player bonus program or for any other reason (collectively, “Discretionary Cash Contributions”), and the case of both (1) and (2), at such time(s) and in such manner as b spot determines, in its sole discretion. Once you complete the chosen game(s) and elect to reveal the full dollar amount of the actual wager, the total winnings for your wagers, if any, will be fully revealed to you. In the event of a technical failure in any of the games in the b spot games portfolio or the Service that prevents you from revealing any portion of the results of your wager(s), you authorize b spot to utilize an alternative reveal mechanism to communicate or deliver the results of your wager(s) to you.
You understand and agree that, although the proceeds from successful wagers will be deposited into your Account as soon as each race is posted official and winning payouts are available from the host racetrack, when you elect to use the Service's Games interface the amounts you have won will only be displayed in your b spot Account balance after such amounts have been revealed to you in the games you have elected to play via the Service's Games interface. You understand, however, that at any point in time you can opt to forego revealing the results of your wagers through game play by using the “Play All” function. The Play All will instantly display to you and reflect in your Account balance the entire results of all your wagers. In the event of a technical failure in any of the games in the b spot games portfolio or the Service that prevents you from revealing any portion of the results of your wager(s), you authorize b spot to utilize an alternative reveal mechanism to communicate or deliver the results of your wager(s) to you.
The Service may notify you of the estimated time when your wager results will be available to be revealed by you via the Games interface. b spot shall have no liability whatsoever if the estimated time communicated to you is incorrect.
Background. Certain sections of the Service may display the “biggest jackpot” in the last 30 days for one or more of the wager denominations made available via the Service. When we display the “biggest jackpot” in the last 30 days for a given wager denomination, we are referring to the highest payout wager in that wager denomination over the last 30 days. It's important to remember that each wager denomination consists of multiple individual wagers. As an advance deposit wagering operator, we receive pari-mutuel wagering pool data from a 3rd party totalizator service, which includes pool payout data. We review the payout data for pari-mutuel wagering pools with respect to horse races on which we are allowed to place wagers on behalf of our players.
Calculation Methodology. To determine the biggest payouts for the prior 30 racing days, we follow the following process:
Things to Remember. We display the biggest jackpot payouts over the prior 30 racing days for each wager denomination as a benefit to our players. Please remember, however, that these are the biggest jackpots from previous horse races that already occurred and are not intended to be predictions or guarantees of payouts for your wager or for future horse races. The amount of the biggest jackpot over the prior 30 racing days fluctuates based on a number of factors, including the size of the pari-mutuel wagering pool, the number of winning wagers in the pool, and the denomination/amount of the winning wagers. Additionally, payouts for particular horse racing pools may be impacted by the rules of the track holding the race, including the rules relating to dead heats, scratches, consolation prizes etc. It is important to remember that individual wager results will vary. In a small percentage of cases, a wager denomination having a corresponding “biggest jackpot” displayed may not include a high payout wager because such type of wager was not available at the time the wager was processed. In these limited cases, the wager denomination will not have a “jackpot” component as a result of the unavailability of the high payout wager at the time the selected wager denomination was processed.
