TERMS OF SERVICE
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY, AS THEY CONTAIN AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE AND OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS, REMEDIES, AND OBLIGATIONS.
User Agreement and Modifications
These Terms constitute a legal agreement between you and BettorFantasy and apply to your access and use of the Website and Services. If you do not agree to these Terms, your sole remedy shall be to discontinue use of the Website and Services.
BettorFantasy reserves the right to change these Terms from time to time, at any time, without prior notice. Any such changes shall take effect when posted on the Website. Your continued access and/or use of the Website or the Services following any such change constitutes your continued acceptance and agreement to be bound by such change.
Access and Use of the Service
Eligibility: You must be at least eighteen (18) years of age to open an account, participate in Services, and win prizes offered via the Services. In jurisdictions, territories, and locations where the minimum age for permissible use of the Website is greater than eighteen (18) years of age, you must meet the age requirement in your local jurisdiction or territory. You must be at least nineteen (19) years of age at time of account creation if you are a legal resident of Nebraska or Alabama or twenty-one (21) years of age if you are a legal resident of Iowa or Massachusetts. Legal residents physically located in any of the fifty (50) states and Washington, DC, excluding Connecticut, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, New York, Nevada, and Washington (the “Excluded States”) are eligible to open an account and participate in contests offered by the Website. Additional states may be included in or removed from the Excluded States section at our sole discretion. You agree to abide by all applicable laws in the jurisdiction where you are located while using the Website. We have the right, at any time, to request you to furnish us with proof of your identity, your age and/or your place of residence. Your account may be suspended pending receipt of this information to verify your eligibility to use the Services. If, as determined in our sole discretion, an account is deemed to be in breach of any term within this section, including rules regarding the age of majority and place of residence, any prizes won by use of that account will be forfeited.
BettorFantasy employees (“Employees”) and any domestic partner or relative of an Employee who resides at an Employee’s residence, including but not limited to parents, grandparents, in-laws, children, siblings, and spouses (“Immediate Family Members”) are not permitted to play in any public contests or tournaments for prizes hosted on the Website; provided, however, Employees and Immediate Family Members are permitted to play in the following contests on the Website: sponsored Private Contests, Private Contests for cash, or Private Contests for prizes other than cash. A “Private Contest” is one that is not listed on the Website’s public domain, and is hosted by another participating Employee, relative, friend of the Employee, or Immediate Family Member. Notwithstanding, Employees and Immediate Family Members living in the same household as such Employees located in Colorado are prevented from competing in any fantasy contests offered by any fantasy contest operator in which the operator offers a cash prize.
Professional or amateur athletes, sports agents, coaches, team owners, team employees, referees or league officials, and their Immediate Family Members, are not eligible to participate in, and are strictly prohibited from entering, any contests or tournaments in the sport in which they are associated.
Account Registration: You may be required to sign up and register an account with BettorFantasy in order to participate in the Services offered on the Website. You may establish only one account per person, and you must be of legal age in the jurisdiction in which you physically access the Website or Services in order to create an account. In the event BettorFantasy discovers that you have opened more than one account, in addition to any other rights BettorFantasy may have against you, BettorFantasy reserves the right to suspend or terminate any or all of your accounts and terminate, withhold or revoke the awarding of any prizes.
Authorized Account Holder, Password and Security: Only the Authorized Account Holder may use an account. "Authorized Account Holder" is defined as the natural person 18 years of age or older who is assigned to an e-mail address by an Internet access provider, on-line service provider, or other organization (e.g., business, education institution, etc.) that is responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address for registration on the Website. By inputting a payment method to participate in real money contests or tournaments, the Authorized Account Holder affirms that the Authorized Account Holder is the lawful owner of the payment method account used to make any deposit(s) on the Website. It shall be a violation of these Terms for any Authorized Account Holder to submit payment using any payment method that is not owned by the Authorized Account Holder.
You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account, and are fully responsible for any and all activities that occur under your password or account. We reserve the right to disable any account if, in our reasonable opinion, your account information has been compromised. You agree to immediately notify BettorFantasy of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security. BettorFantasy will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to protect your password and/or otherwise prevent unauthorized use and/or access to your account
Your account is not a bank account and is therefore not insured, guaranteed, sponsored or otherwise protected by any deposit or banking insurance system or by any other similar insurance system. Deposits and prizes after contests are finished are held in a separate, segregated bank account. We use third-party electronic payment processors to process financial transactions executed through your use of the Services. You irrevocably authorize us to instruct such processors to handle deposits and withdrawals from your account and irrevocably agree that we may give such instructions on your behalf in accordance with your requests, or as consequence of your activity regarding use of the Services.
Modifications to Service: BettorFantasy reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Service (or any part thereof) with or without notice. You agree that BettorFantasy will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of the Service.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Deposits: You may deposit funds in your account upon the providing of necessary information. The maximum deposit you can make into your account in any monthly period is USD $1,000.00; provided, we reserve the right to increase or decrease deposit limits pursuant to applicable law. If any deposit is charged back or is otherwise uncollectible for any reason, the amount of the initial deposit and any winnings generated from your participation in real money contests or tournaments from the time of the applicable deposit until its reversal or un-collectability shall be invalidated, forfeited and deducted from your account balance. BettorFantasy reserves the right to close your account if a deposit is charged back, or if it is determined that you: (i) are not of legal age in order to access the Website or Services, or (ii) have violated any of the Terms, at the time of making a deposit.
In order for you to make any deposits by credit card, you must be the authorized user of such credit card. You agree to immediately notify us of any changes to your credit card account number, its expiration date and/or your billing address in order to make deposits with your credit card. If your credit card is canceled or expired, you must immediately update your credit card prior to future use. We are not liable for any loss caused by any unauthorized use of your credit card or other method of payment by a third party in connection with the Services. Any attempt to defraud through the use of credit cards or other methods of payment, failure to honor legitimate charges or requests for payment, or any other violation of these Terms will result in immediate termination of your account, forfeiture of winnings, and pursuit of civil litigation and/or criminal prosecution.
Third Party Payment Provider: When you use a third-party payment service provider to make a deposit on our Website, the third-party payment service provider maintains primary responsibility for payment and payment related customer support. The terms between the third-party payment service provider and customers who utilize services of the third party are governed by a separate agreement between the service provider and the customer, and are not subject to these Terms. It is your responsibility to review any agreements you may have with such third-party payment service provider, and you agree BettorFantasy shall not be liable for any damages resulting from your use of any third-party payment service provider.
Withdrawals: You may withdraw funds from your account at any time provided all prizes have been confirmed and you have satisfied our identification procedures. Where required by law, we will require you to furnish your tax identification number prior to payout of prizes. To make a withdrawal, you will need to fill out necessary information required by the Website. Payments and withdrawals can be made using credit or debit cards registered to your address only. We may not accept certain cards for payments, deposits or withdrawals.
AML Compliance: In order to protect against fraud and collusion, and to comply with anti-money laundering requirements, you may be prevented from withdrawing funds until a period of at 48 hours has elapsed since your last deposit. It is therefore advised that you wait at least 48 hours from the time of your last deposit before making a request to withdraw funds.
Release: You may be requested to complete an affidavit of eligibility and a liability/publicity release (unless prohibited by law) and/or appropriate tax forms and submit forms of identification including but not limited to a driver's license, proof of residence, and/or any information relating to payment/deposit accounts as reasonably requested by us in order to complete a withdrawal. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in disqualification and forfeiture of any prizes.
Games of Skill: All contests offered on the Website are fantasy sports contests of skill. Winners are determined by the objective criteria described in the contest rules, scoring, and any other applicable documentation associated with the contest. From all entries received for each contest, the individuals who use their skill and knowledge of relevant sports information, investment strategy, and fantasy sports rules to accumulate the most points according to the corresponding contest scoring rules will determine winners. Our Services (including, but not limited to, the contests) may not be used for any form of illicit gambling.
Entry Fees and Prizes: Users will be able to visit the Website and view the contests and tournaments available for entry. Each contest or tournament that is not free to enter will have an entry fee listed in US dollars. When you select to participate in a contest or tournament and complete the entry process, the listed amount of US dollars will be debited from your account.
Entry fees and prizes may vary depending on the contest. See each contest’s rules for more information. Each contest is governed by its own set of rules. We encourage you to read the rules prior to entry. All taxes associated with the receipt of any prize are the sole responsibility of the winner. In the event that any legal authority challenges the awarding of any prizes to winners of a contest or tournament, BettorFantasy reserves the right in its sole discretion to determine whether or not to award such prizes.
Affidavit of Eligibility/Taxes: Winners may be required via e-mail or U.S. Mail to receive and return an executed affidavit of eligibility, a liability release and, where lawful, a publicity release (collectively, the “Affidavit”) and/or appropriate tax forms within specified days of notification. You agree that if such documents are not returned within the specified time period, or if the prize or prize notification is unclaimed or returned as undeliverable, or if you are not in compliance with these Terms, the prize may be forfeited and/or might be awarded to another potential winner at our discretion. Failure to provide the Affidavit and/or any information requested to verify your eligibility may result in forfeiture of all prize(s) awarded to your account.
You further agree that all tax liability relating to your receipt of a prize is your sole responsibility. It is the policy of BettorFantasy, in compliance with United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations, to send an IRS Form 1099 or other appropriate form to any person who wins in excess of $600 USD in any given year or the then current limit provided by law. If you have thus won a cumulative net profit of $600 USD or more in a calendar year, or the legal limit provided by law, you will be contacted by BettorFantasy and required to submit your residential address and tax ID number (social security number).
You, not BettorFantasy, are responsible for filing and paying applicable state and federal taxes on any winnings. BettorFantasy reserves the right to request any other information from you deemed necessary for BettorFantasy to submit any required IRS Forms to the IRS. BettorFantasy will attempt to contact the prize winner through e-mail and U.S. Mail to obtain the necessary information.
Live Scoring: To the extent that BettorFantasy offers 'live' scoring during gameplay, all 'live' scoring and other information provided through the Website are unofficial. While BettorFantasy and the third parties used to provide the Services use reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information, neither BettorFantasy nor its third party providers warrant or make any representations of any kind with respect to the information provided through the Services and related information sources. BettorFantasy and its third party providers shall not be responsible or liable for the accuracy, usefulness, or availability of any information transmitted or made available via the Website and related information sources, and shall not be responsible or liable for any error or omissions in that information.
Contest Results: Contest results will be based solely on the data provided by our third party data providers and may not be 100% accurate. As such, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of the data used to allocate points scoring in all circumstances, nor do we accept liability for any loss or damage resulting from any such inaccuracies. We reserve the right to make corrections or amendments to the scoring or points allocated during a contest at any time before the prize for that contest has been awarded. For more information regarding the scoring and points allocation system, please review the applicable rules for the contest.
Suspension and/or Cancellation of Contests: We reserve the right to suspend contest entries and/or cancel a contest at any time. Prizes will only be awarded if a contest is run to completion. In the event of a cancellation, all entry fees received for such contest will be credited back to each entrant’s account. We reserve the right to withhold payment and to cancel, suspend, and/or void any entries at our absolute discretion where: (i) there is a technological failure or other act beyond our reasonable control, including, but not limited to, an act of God, hurricane, war, fire, riot, earthquake, terrorism, an act of public enemies, actions of governmental authorities outside of our control, national emergency, pandemic, stoppage of athletic events, or other force majeure event; (ii) there is any issue with athlete tracking and/or projections; (iii) we suspect a breach any of these Terms; (iv) the integrity of the contest has been called into question; or (v) collusion between players has, or is believed to have, taken place.
Virtual Currency: BettorFantasy may provide and/or allow you to obtain virtual currency and/or other virtual items (i.e. athlete shares) (“Virtual Currency”) for use on the Website or Services, including, without limitation, contest or tournaments. Such Virtual Currency may be subject to conditions and restrictions, including expiration dates. You acknowledge that Virtual Currency has no real world value and cannot be transferred, exchanged, or redeemed (from us or any other party) for real money, goods or other items of monetary value.
You agree that BettorFantasy has the absolute right to manage, regulate, control, modify and/or eliminate Virtual Currency at any time as BettorFantasy sees fit in its sole discretion, in any general or specific case, and that BettorFantasy will have no liability to you based on its exercise of such rights. You agree that you have no right, title or interest in or to any such Virtual Currency appearing or originating pursuant to your use of the Website and/or the Services.
All Virtual Currency shall be forfeited in the event your account is terminated or cancelled for any reason, or if BettorFantasy discontinues providing the Website or the Services offered thereon.
You acknowledge that you do not in fact “own” the Virtual Currency. By acquiring Virtual Currency, you acknowledge that you have obtained a limited and revocable license to a digital product for use only in the Website, including, without limitation, the contest or tournaments. This license is personal to the owner of the account participating in such contest or tournament, and Virtual Currency may not be sold, transferred, assigned, gifted, traded or sublicensed (including for monetary exchange or for any other value). Account holders may not combine, transfer or share Virtual Currency with other account holders.
Any attempt to sublicense, rent, lease, trade, gift, transfer, sell or perform any action related to your use of Virtual Currency in violation of these Terms may subject you to termination of your account and/or legal action. We reserve the right to take any other action or additional action we deem appropriate in our sole discretion in the event we believe (in our sole discretion) that you have violated these provisions.
BettorLive will be run and governed in accordance with the rules and regulations described on the Website.
BettorLive contains a user chat feature where users may interact with a community of other users. All comments must abide by our content standards. Any violation of our content standard, as determined in our sole discretion, may result in the user being banned from BettorLive and/or BettorFantasy. In the event a user is suspended, any and all Virtual Currency contained in the user’s account may be forfeited.
Any user deemed to be attempting to deceive or share misleading information relating to the contest shall be suspended from using BettorLive. Any such suspension is unappealable and is at the sole discretion of BettorFantasy.

This Dispute Resolution by Binding Arbitration section is referred to in this Terms as the “Arbitration Agreement.” You agree that any and all disputes or claims that have arisen or may arise between you and BettorFantasy, whether arising out of or relating to this Terms (including any alleged breach thereof), the Services, any advertising, any aspect of the relationship or transactions between us, shall be resolved exclusively through final and binding arbitration in accordance with the terms of this Arbitration Agreement. You agree that, by entering into this Terms, you and BettorFantasy are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate in a class action. Your rights will be determined by a neutral arbitrator, not a judge or jury. The Federal Arbitration Act governs the interpretation and enforcement of this Arbitration Agreement.
Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief
YOU AND BETTORFANTASY AGREE THAT EACH OF US MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION OR PROCEEDING. UNLESS BOTH YOU AND BETTORFANTASY AGREE OTHERWISE, THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE PERSON’S OR PARTY’S CLAIMS AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A CONSOLIDATED, REPRESENTATIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. ALSO, THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD RELIEF (INCLUDING MONETARY, INJUNCTIVE, AND DECLARATORY RELIEF) ONLY IN FAVOR OF THE INDIVIDUAL PARTY SEEKING RELIEF AND ONLY TO THE EXTENT NECESSARY TO PROVIDE RELIEF NECESSITATED BY THAT PARTY’S INDIVIDUAL CLAIM(S), EXCEPT THAT YOU MAY PURSUE A CLAIM FOR AND THE ARBITRATOR MAY AWARD PUBLIC INJUNCTIVE RELIEF UNDER APPLICABLE LAW TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED FOR THE ENFORCEABILITY OF THIS PROVISION.
Pre-Arbitration Dispute Resolution
A party who intends to seek arbitration must first send to the other, by certified mail or email, a written Notice of Dispute (“Notice”). The Notice to BettorFantasy should be sent to email@example.com. You agree that all notices to be sent to you shall be sent to the email associated with your account. The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought. If BettorFantasy and you do not resolve the claim within sixty (60) calendar days after the Notice is received, you or BettorFantasy may commence an arbitration proceeding.
Arbitration will be conducted by a neutral arbitrator in accordance with the American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”) rules and procedures, including the AAA’s Consumer Arbitration Rules (collectively, the “AAA Rules”), as modified by this Arbitration Agreement. For information on the AAA, please visit its website, http://www.adr.org. Information about the AAA Rules and fees for consumer disputes can be found at the AAA’s consumer arbitration page, http://www.adr.org/consumer_arbitration. If there is any inconsistency between any term of the AAA Rules and any term of this Arbitration Agreement, the applicable terms of this Arbitration Agreement will control. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of this Arbitration Agreement. The arbitrator may award any relief that a court of competent jurisdiction could award, and the arbitration decision may be enforced in any court of competent jurisdiction. You agree to abide by all decisions and awards rendered in such a proceeding, which shall be final and conclusive. At your request, hearings may be conducted in person or by telephone. The prevailing party in any action or proceeding shall be entitled to reasonable costs and attorneys' fees.
Unless BettorFantasy and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in a reasonably convenient location for both parties with due consideration of their ability to travel and other pertinent circumstances. If the parties are unable to agree on a location, AAA shall make the determination. If your claim is for $10,000 or less, BettorFantasy agrees that you may choose whether the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents submitted to the arbitrator, through a telephonic hearing, or by an in-person hearing as established by the AAA Rules. If your claim exceeds $10,000, the AAA Rules will determine the right to a hearing. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based.
Notwithstanding the foregoing arbitration provisions, in no event shall BettorFantasy be precluded or delayed from seeking and obtaining temporary, preliminary and/or permanent injunctive relief, without the posting of any bond or proving of actual damages, against infringement or other violation of its claimed Intellectual Property rights in a court of appropriate jurisdiction.
All aspects of the arbitration proceeding, and any ruling, decision, or award by the arbitrator, will be strictly confidential for the benefit of all parties.
If a court or the arbitrator decides that any term or provision of this Arbitration Agreement (other than the subsection (b) titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” above) is invalid or unenforceable, the parties agree to replace such term or provision with a term or provision that is valid and enforceable and that comes closest to expressing the intention of the invalid or unenforceable term or provision, and this Arbitration Agreement shall be enforceable as so modified. If a court or the arbitrator decides that any of the provisions of subsection (b) above titled “Prohibition of Class and Representative Actions and Non-Individualized Relief” are invalid or unenforceable, then the entirety of this Arbitration Agreement shall be null and void, unless such provisions are deemed to be invalid or unenforceable solely with respect to claims for public injunctive relief. The remainder of the Terms will continue to apply.
You agree that BettorFantasy, in its sole discretion, may suspend or terminate your account (or any part thereof) or use of the Service and remove and discard any content within the Service, for any reason, including, without limitation, for lack of use or if BettorFantasy believes that you have violated these Terms.
