Should we require or request registration information from you to be able to access and/or use the Site, you agree to provide us with accurate and complete information and to update this information in a timely fashion in the event that it changes.
- EVENTS – LICENCE FEES, ELIGIBILITY, PARTICIPATION AND REWARDS
Subject to the eligibility criteria set out below, you will be able to participate in peer-to-peer sports betting contests, established by you or other users, which are accessible via the BETTA smart contract interfaces which may be made available on the Site from time to time (“Events”). BETTA may select and suggest events and contests that it believes may be of interest to its users, and present these on the Site, but all Events are exclusively established via BETTA’s users interacting with its smart contracts.
BETTA does not charge any individual participant in an Event any kind of “entry fee” and, as such, you may use the Site completely free of charge. In electing to participate in an Event by placing a bet, you will be sending a corresponding amount of ETH, plus transactional costs, from whichever Ethereum wallet you have connected to the Site from time to time, to a BETTA smart contract via the Ethereum Mainnet network (“Stakes”). Stakes are controlled by smart contract and are only capable of being refunded in certain predefined circumstances (see below); otherwise, funds held in BETTA smart contracts are only released, and able to be claimed by those eligible, once the result of an Event has been declared.
Funds held in BETTA smart contracts may be released to be claimed by the originating wallets if:
- an Event is cancelled outright ;
- an established Event does not receive any competing Stakes; and/or
- an Event concludes, a result is declared, and there are no winning participants (in which case funds may be claimed less any License Fees, as defined below).
Transactions with BETTA smart contracts are not concluded instantly and are always subject to the processing speed of the Ethereum Mainnet network, from time to time, and also the amount of “gas” and the “gas limits” applied to such transactions by the user initiating the same. Accordingly, users may find transactions failing, or being rejected by BETTA’s smart contracts due to the normal operation of the Ethereum Mainnet network; and you acknowledge and agree that these operation are outside the control of BETTA and, in no way, will BETTA be considered liable for any such failed/rejected transactions.
BETTA’s smart contracts deduct a software license fee from the aggregated Stakes associated with every Event that proceeds to conclusion and for which a result is declared (“License Fee”). In participating in any Event, you acknowledge, understand and provide your consent to such deduction. BETTA may, in its absolute discretion, alter the License Fee deductible from Events’ aggregated Stakes from time to time.
BETTA may elect, but is not obliged to, share its License Fee with certain of its users, in such amount and with such frequency as it may determine, at its sole discretion, from time to time.
BETTA is not a bank and its smart contracts are not designed for value storage. Once an Event result has been declared, eligible users may claim their rewards from BETTA’s smart contracts via the Site. Rewards must be claimed within 30 days (or such other length of time as BETTA may, in its absolute discretion, specify from time to time) of the start date and time of an Event, after this time any unclaimed rewards for said Event will be forfeit to BETTA.
While anyone may use the Site for informational and general entertainment purposes, in participating in Events you represent that:
- you are at least 18 years of age (or older than 18 years of age in those jurisdictions, territories, and locations where the minimum age for permissible use of the Site by you is greater than 18 years old); and
- not be legally resident, or physically located, in any geographical region where your use of the Site is, or may be deemed to be, prohibited or otherwise restricted.
Event results and rewards are based upon the generally available statistics and results available as at completion of each individual Event. Event results, and the allocation of corresponding rewards, are final upon declaration by us, and are incapable of being altered. Results of Events cannot and will not be altered or amended due to any after the event official statistics or scoring adjustments made by an event or contest’s governing body and/or league.
Event results will be declared as soon as reasonably practicable following the conclusion of each Event, but are subject to manual intervention.
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to cancel or suspend any Event for any reason whatsoever, including but not limited to, the safeguarding of the administration, security, fairness, integrity or proper operation of the Event. We may provide you with notification of such cancellations or suspensions, but will not be obliged to do so. In the event that an Event is cancelled altogether, any Stakes placed will be able to be withdrawn from BETTA’s smart contracts to their originating wallets only.
