to the day that the bets were placed.
10.4. Geoff Banks reserves the right to suspend a market and/or cancel any bet/wager at any time. When a market is suspended any bets entered will be
rejected. Geoff Banks also reserves the right to cease betting on any markets at any time without notice.
10.5. Should a customer include a non-runner or void selection in a multiple bet/parlay, the bet will be settled on the remaining selections.
10.6. Winnings from settled bets/wagers are added to the balance of your betting account. Any funds/winnings credited to an account in error are not
available for use, and Geoff Banks reserves the right to void any transactions involving such funds and/or withdraw the relevant amount from your account
and/or reverse the transaction, either at the time or retrospectively.
10.7. We reserve the right to withhold payment and to declare bets on an event void if we have evidence that the following has occurred:
(i) the integrity of the event has been called into question;
(ii) the price(s) or pool has been manipulated; or
(iii) matchrigging has taken place.
Evidence of the above may be based on the size, volume or pattern of bets placed with Geoff Banks across any or all of our betting channels. A decision
given by the relevant governing body of the sport in question (if any) will be conclusive. If any customer owes any money to Geoff Banks for any reason, we
have the right to take that into account before making any payments to that customer.

10.8.5. are placing any bets or wagers for the benefit of others; or
10.8.6. We are required to do so by law.

individuals, we reserve the right to make bets void or withhold payment of returns pending the outcome of any subsequent investigation.

inadvertently accepted after an event or match has commenced (other than live In-Play betting clearly indicated on the Website), bets will stand providing
the final outcome is not known, and that no participant/team has gained any material advantage (e.g. a score, sending off for the other team, etc) at the
time the bet was placed. If the outcome of an event/market is known Geoff Banks reserves the right to void the bet, win or lose. Disputes over times bets
are placed will be settled using the transaction log. All times stated on the Website and/or referred to by our staff relate to UK Time unless stated
10.12. In-Play betting - where we have reason to believe that a bet is placed after the outcome of an event is known, or after the selected participant or
team has gained a material advantage (e.g. a score, sending off for the other team etc) we reserve the right to void the bet, win or lose.
10.13. If for any reason we are unable to validate the outcome of a particular market (e.g. due to loss of live pictures), all bets will be void, unless
settlement of bets is already determined.

12.2. Geoff Banks reserves the right to correct any obvious errors 'palpable' and to void any bets placed where such have occurred.

the time of acceptance (or the starting price in the case of horseracing, whichever is the greater).

the wagers affected and your stake will be returned. Should funds be credited to a customer's account in error, it is the customer's responsibility to

be held by you on trust for us and you shall be immediately repaid to us when a demand for payment is made by us to you.
