To the extent considered possible by the Gaming Operator, transactions will be made in accordance with the choice of withdrawal method provided by the Player to the Gaming Operator. However, the Gaming Operator reserves the right, at all times, to make the final decision on the choice of withdrawal method. Depending on the Player's or the Gaming Operator's choice of withdrawal method withdrawals may result in fees payable to a third party, such as banks and financial institutions. Information about applicable fees from time to time is provided on the Site under "My Account" and "Settings". The Player understands and accepts that such fees and other fees payable to third parties shall be paid by the Player.

5.7 Before any pay-outs are carried out the Gaming Operator has the right to request a valid document of identification, for example a copy of a passport, driver’s license or any other valid document of identification. The Gaming Operator reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine which documents of identification that are acceptable. If the Player has deposited funds with credit cards or debit cards or if the Player has requested a pay-out to be made to a credit card or debit card, the Gaming Operator has the right to request copies of both front page and back page the relevant card. For the Player's own safety, the Gaming Operator recommends that the Player only makes the first six (6) digits and the last four (4) digits on the credit card or debit card visible when providing the copy of the card.
