iv. To use the Services and to purchase a Game Entry, you will be required to provide the Company with details of means of payment and/or transfer funds into your User Account (“Play Credits”) by any of the methods specified by the Company. If you transfer funds into your User Account, such funds will be deposited into your User Account upon actual receipt of funds by the Company. Minimum and maximum limits may be applied in respect of transferring funds into and out of your User Account, depending upon your history with the Company, the method of deposit, and other factors as determined solely by the Company. The Company will debit your User Account and/or your means of payment at any time between the time in which you place a request to purchase a Game Entry and the time in which the Company purchases the Game Entry on your behalf.
v. Your request to purchase any Game Entry on your behalf is subject to sufficient funds in your User Account to pay for the Game Entry or the provision of means of payment which allow the payment of the Game Entry.
vi. Should you have insufficient Play Credits in your account, your payment method will be processed on completion of your order. If your payment method fails to process the transaction you will be advised accordingly. In the event that your User Account balance is in a negative balance, you expressly acknowledge and agree that such negative balance shall constitute an incontestable debt payable by you to us, due and payable immediately.

4. Inactive Account:
i. An “inactive account” is a LuckyLottos Account which is an account without any recorded log-in and/or log-out activity, including zero ticket entries, for a period of 6 (six) consecutive months.
ii. If your account is inactive for 6 (six) months, LuckyLottos reserves the right to remove 50% (fifty percent) of your play credit balance, which may also include any other balance on your account at that time, which 50% shall be forfeited to the Company.
iii. In the event that you login to your account during the period following the aforementioned 6 (six) months, LuckyLottos shall deem your account as “re-activated” but shall not be obligated to return to you any monies already forfeited from the account at such time.
iv. If the account remains inactive for a further 6 (six) months, your account will be deemed a dormant account, in which case LuckyLottos reserves the right to levy a monthly administration fee equivalent to 10% of your play credit balance, which may also include any other balance on your account at that time, for maintenance of the account and set-off such charges against the funds in the account. The maximum amount of fees thus incurred will be the lower of the balance of your account or an administrative fee.
v. The account administration fee is charged as permanently inactive customer accounts require considerable organizational efforts. LuckyLottos is entitled to change the fee from time to time.
vi. The administration fee will be deducted for 5 (five) months following the date on which your account is deemed “dormant”. Thereafter the deductions for the administration charge will cease and all balances may be removed from the account after a notification has been sent to your registered e-mail address.
LuckyLottos shall remit the balance of your account to you where the required payment instructions are available. The balance of your account will however be forfeited to the Company after reasonable efforts to contact you have failed and/or you could not be satisfactorily located.
vii. In any case in which your account becomes a dormant account or an inactive account, and without derogating from LuckyLottos’s right to seize and forfeit any and all funds held in your account, you may contact LuckyLottos and submit a request to re-activate your account and/or return the balance of your account. For the avoidance of doubt, LuckyLottos is under no obligation to accept your request, and such request will be reviewed in accordance with the relevant facts and circumstances and the provisions of these Terms and Conditions.

The Company reserves the right to close a User Account opened in breach of this rule at any point.
v. Dormant User Accounts-
a. The Company will consider an account to be dormant / inactive after a period of 6 months after the last account login.
b. Should the Company consider an account to be dormant / inactive for a period exceeding 18 (eighteen) months, it will be de-activated / locked.

ii. Charges will be in accordance with the stated fees, as more fully set out and displayed on Homepage, Play Page and Checkout.
iii. Your payment method will be processed either immediately after confirmation of your order or when you choose to purchase Play Credits for use on the site.
iv. For transaction security we use SSL encryption. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral.
v. The Game Entry is purchased at your request, subject to rules and regulations governing online transactions and fraud-prevention. In the event of any fraudulent activity on the User’s part, the result of which has affected a Game Entry, the Game Entry on your behalf shall become the property of the Company and any prize monies resulting therefrom shall be forfeited to and remain the property of the Company absolutely. Any funds deposited into a User Account are deemed to be payment for future Game Entries and as a result may NOT be withdrawn. In addition, NO funds added to the User's account by way of any promotional offer (including but not limited to double deposits, ad-hoc winnings or loyalty rewards) or at the discretion of PlayUKinternet N.V., may be withdrawn by the User.
vi. It will be your responsibility to ensure that correct instructions are given to the Company to effect the purchase of Game Entries. The Company will accept no liability for any errors that may have occurred due to your incorrect instructions.
vii. Once a Game Entry has been accepted by our server it cannot be cancelled by you. Game Entries purchased through the Website will only be valid once a Game Entry Receipt is displayed in your User Account.

ix. You acknowledge that full freedom from errors or incompleteness is impossible to achieve with respect to computer software. Should you become aware that the software contains an obvious error or incompleteness you undertake to refrain from taking any advantage whatsoever thereof. Moreover, promptly upon becoming aware of such error or incompleteness User shall notify the Company in writing. Regardless of whether you become aware of any such errors, the Company shall not be held liable for payment of any sort which may become due as a result of software, administrative, hardware failure, faults, technical difficulties or Force Majeure.
x. The Company cannot be held liable for any late notification of entries for a particular draw. It is the responsibility of the individual to ensure that their orders are placed in time for a draw and that they are aware of the cut-off times for the draws. If the individual does not receive a confirmation by email of their order (due to the player's ISP non-performance or any other reason) then they must check (prior to cut off time) their own transaction history on-line for confirmation of their entry. The Company shall not be held liable if your entry was received too late for a draw (“late entry”) and you had a winning combination in that draw. In such a case the entry would have automatically been allocated to the next available draw, should same be placed after the cut-off time.

c. The Company utilises the services of a risk management company and/ or insurer to manage and underwrite any of the potential winnings arising from any of the games on the site up to a particular value. The Company shall be subject to certain terms of contract with these parties which may impose obligations requiring any winner to submit verification documentation and sign releases and the like as a precondition to payment. You undertake that you shall do all such acts and things as may be necessary as a precondition of payment should you win and should such condition be required to be fulfilled.
