GAME SESSIONS AND VIRTUAL GOODS
AVAILABILITY OF GAMES
We reserve the right, in our sole and absolute discretion and without liability, to cancel or suspend a Game should a virus, bug, worm, communication or server failure occur or for any other reason we deem necessary.
Active Game Sessions
Once a single player Game commences it will continue until:
• (a) you win;
• (b) you lose;
• (c) you resign; or
• (d) your connection is terminated for any reason or the internet browser window is closed.
In the event of a multi-stage single-player game where there are still active bets of Virtual Credits (as defined herein) on the table, the Game state may be stored and resumed at a later date.
Once a multiplayer Game commences it will continue until:
• (a) you win;
• (b) you lose;
• (c) you resign; or
• (d) your connection is terminated for any reason in which case you will be deemed to have lost the Game if you cannot reconnect to the Game while it is still in progress (please see the terms of our disconnection policy as set out below). If you lose your connection during a game of Pro Blackjack, in which you were in the middle of playing out one or more hands of blackjack, your session will persist and you will be able to login to the website, re-launch the Pro Blackjack Game and continue your session.
Disconnected Game Sessions
In the event that:
• (a) a disconnection occurs; or
• (b) you close the game lobby window (which closes all game tables); or
• (c) you close the game table window,
your Game will be paused and your opponent notified of your disconnection. If you log back in and re-enter the Game lobby within two (2) minutes you will be given the opportunity to rejoin your Game table (the "Disconnect Protection"). If you do not reconnect within the two minute period your opponent will be deemed the winner and your Virtual Credits or Virtual Credit-liability will be deducted or forfeited.
Our software will detect whether there has been a genuine disconnection. If you try to claim Disconnect Protection by simply getting 'timed out', you will be deemed to have resigned from the Game. Disconnect Protection is not to be used for any purpose other than a genuine disconnection. Any intentional disconnections from the virtual Game lobby or virtual Game table may result in forfeiture or deductions of Virtual Credit winnings, or expulsion from the site.
In the unlikely event a real Game in progress is cancelled due to technical issues, both players will be automatically refunded their Virtual Credit buy-ins, regardless of the players’ standing when the Game was stopped. We reserve the right to render final decisions on all matters concerning Game terminations or stoppages or other Game determination issues, at our sole discretion. Refunds may be communicated via electronic mail or via the Site.
The Services may include an opportunity to purchase Virtual Goods (as defined below), using real-world money. Virtual Goods include in-game credits ("Virtual Credits") and other virtual items ("Virtual Goods"). A Virtual Good is a set of rights to digital items, as licensed by Company. Virtual Goods can never be redeemed for real money, goods, or any other item of monetary value from Company or any other party. You understand that you have no right or title in Virtual Goods other than the extent of your limited license. Virtual Goods have no economic value and provide no economic advantage or gain to the user.
Your purchase of the limited license for Virtual Goods is final and is not refundable, exchangeable, or transferable, except in Company's sole discretion. You may not purchase, sell, or exchange Virtual Goods outside the Services. Doing so is a violation of this Agreement and may result in termination of your account with the Service and/or legal action.
Company retains the right to modify, manage, control and/or eliminate your limited license with respect to Virtual Goods at its sole discretion. Prices and availability of limited licenses for Virtual Goods are subject to change without notice.
Your per-Game player rating is operated and defined at our absolute discretion and is subject to change from time to time without notice to you. Information on player ratings is clearly displayed on each Game specific website page.
Please ensure all of your personal details relevant to your account on the Website (under the section My Account/My Details) are correct. If any of your personal details are either not correct or are missing, we will not be able to authorize and process your payments in return for Virtual Credits.
The available payment method is by credit cards, including Visa, Master Card, Discover and American Express.
Security reviews may be performed at any time to validate your identity, age and registration data provided.
You therefore authorize us (and our agents) to make any inquiries of you and for us to use and disclose to any third party details that we consider necessary to validate the information you provided to use, or should have provided to use, in accordance with these Terms and Conditions, including but not limited to:
• (i) Ordering a credit report; and
• (ii) Verifying the information provided by you against databases provided by third parties.
To enable us to fully conduct these inquiries you agree to provide such information or documentation as we, in our sole unfettered discretion, may request.
Virtual Credit-based transactions are only valid if accepted by our server. Until acceptance of the transaction by our server all information displayed relating to a Game constitutes an invitation to play only. You agree that our records shall be the final authority in determining the validity and terms of any transactions and the circumstances in which they were made. We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to refuse or limit any transaction. Where a transaction is invalid, refused or its value limited, any Virtual Credit-based sum deducted from your account with respect to that Game may be credited to your account.
Virtual Credits may not be withdrawn from your account in any circumstances. You acknowledge that the Virtual Credits held within your account consequent to purchases of Virtual Credits in return for real money have no monetary value and are neither money nor real currency. Your Virtual Credits balance is associated with your account. It may not be gifted, exchanged or in any manner transferred to another person or company.
FEES DERIVED FROM VIRTUAL CREDIT PAYMENTS
We will charge you one hundred percent (100%) of the real money sums paid by you in return for Virtual Credits required to continue playing the Games available on the Website. This fee shall be taken in full and shall be effective from the moment your real money online payment in return for any amount of Virtual Credit is successfully processed. We charge this fee to cover our costs of development, hosting and maintenance and share any profits with commercial partners.

APPLICABLE LAW; JURISDICTION; ARBITRATION; DISPUTE RESOLUTION
(a) U.S. Site.
The Services are controlled and operated by the Company from within the United States of America, and are intended for use only by residents of the United States. The Company makes no representations or warranties that the content or materials of the Services are appropriate or lawful in any foreign countries, or that any items or applications offered for sale or download through links on the Services will be available outside the United States. Those who choose to access the Services from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable. You may not use or export or re-export any content downloaded from the Services or any copy or adaptation of such content, in violation of any applicable laws or regulations, including without limitation United States export laws and regulations.
(b) Governing law.
This Agreement shall be governed by, and construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Maryland, as it is applied to agreements entered into and to be performed entirely within such state, without regard to conflict of law principles.
(c) Initial Dispute Resolution.
We are available through the ‘Contact Us’ link at: https://maryland.livecasinohotel.com/about-us/contact-us to discuss any concerns you may have regarding your use of the Services. Most concerns may be quickly resolved in this manner. The parties shall use their best efforts to settle any dispute, claim, question, or disagreement directly through consultation and good faith negotiations which shall be a precondition to either party initiating a lawsuit or arbitration. If you wish to make a complaint, you must do so by contacting Customer Service at https://maryland.livecasinohotel.com/about-us/contact-us. Any complaints must be registered with Customer Service within six (6) months of the occurrence of the event to which the complaint relates.
(d) Binding Arbitration Agreement.
If you and we do not reach an agreed upon solution to any dispute arising under this Agreement or your use of the Services within a period of thirty (30) days from the time informal dispute resolution is pursued pursuant to the immediately preceding subsection above, then either party may initiate binding arbitration. All claims arising out of or relating to this Agreement (including its formation, performance and breach), the parties’ relationship with each other and/or your use of the Services shall be finally settled by binding arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) in accordance with the provisions of its Commercial Arbitration Rules and the supplementary procedures for consumer related disputes of the AAA, excluding any rules or procedures governing or permitting class actions. The arbitrator, and not any federal, state or local court or agency, shall have exclusive authority to resolve all disputes arising out of or relating to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Agreement, including, but not limited to any claim that all or any part of this Agreement is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in a court under law or in equity. The arbitrator’s award shall be binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. The procedures and rules of the Federal Arbitration Act shall exclusively govern the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision.
The AAA’s rules governing the arbitration may be accessed at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1.800.778.7879 (FREE). To the extent the filing fee for the arbitration exceeds the cost of filing a lawsuit, we will pay the additional cost. A request for payment of filing fees should be submitted to AAA along with your form for initiating the arbitration, and we will make arrangements to pay all necessary FILING fees directly to AAA. If the arbitrator finds the arbitration to be non-frivolous, we will pay all of the actual filing and arbitrator fees for the arbitration, provided your claim does not exceed $75,000. The arbitration rules also permit you to recover attorney’s fees in certain cases.
The parties understand that, absent this mandatory provision, they would have the right to sue in court. They further understand that, in some instances, the costs of arbitration could exceed the costs of litigation and the right to discovery may be more limited in arbitration than in court.
(e) Class Action Waiver.
The parties further agree that any arbitration shall be conducted in their individual capacities only and not as a class action or other representative action, and the parties expressly waive their right to file a class action or seek relief on a class basis. If any court or arbitrator determines that the class action waiver set forth in this paragraph is void or unenforceable for any reason or that an arbitration can proceed on a class basis, then the arbitration provision set forth above shall be deemed null and void in its entirety and the parties shall be deemed to have not agreed to arbitrate disputes.
(f) 30 Day Right to Opt Out.
You have the right to opt-out and not be bound by the arbitration and class action waiver provisions set forth in the preceding paragraphs by sending written notice of your decision to opt-out to the following address: PPE Casino Resorts Maryland IMG, LLC, 7002 Arundel Mills Circle Suite 7777, Hanover, MD 21076; Attn: General Counsel. The notice must be sent within thirty (30) days of creation of an account via the Services, otherwise you shall be bound to arbitrate disputes in accordance with the terms of those paragraphs. If you opt-out of these arbitration provisions, we also will not be bound by them.
(g) Exception - Small Claims Court Claims.
Notwithstanding the parties' decision to resolve all disputes through arbitration, either party may also seek relief in a small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of that court's jurisdiction.
(h) Exclusive Venue for Litigation.
Solely to the extent the arbitration provisions set forth above do not apply, or for purposes of either party enforcing an award granted to it pursuant to arbitration, the parties agree that any litigation between them shall be filed exclusively in the Federal District Court of Maryland, or, if federal subject matter jurisdiction is lacking, then in the state courts located in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The parties expressly hereby consent to exclusive jurisdiction in the aforesaid courts for any litigation, hereby also consent to personal jurisdiction in said courts for any litigation and waive, for all purposes, their right to challenge the lack of personal jurisdiction said courts over any litigation arising in connection with, out of, or as a result of (a) this Agreement or the Services, and (b) any acts or omissions of the Company in connection with this Agreement or the Services.
(i) One Year Time Limit. You agree to commence any arbitration proceeding (or court action if applicable) with respect to this Agreement within one year after the claim arises. You agree that a proceeding commenced after this date is barred.
If any provision of this Agreement shall be deemed unlawful, void or for any reason unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions shall not be affected. When used in this Agreement, the term "including" shall be deemed to be followed by the words "without limitation."
We reserve the right to modify and/or amend any of these Terms and Conditions from time to time as we deem fit. The Terms and Conditions contained herein may be modified and/or amended without notice to you. Any such modifications and amendments will take effect upon posting in the “Terms and Conditions” section of the website. You should check the website from time to time to review these Terms and Conditions as they are binding on you.
The failure of the Company and its affiliated parties to insist upon strict adherence to any term of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such term or limit that party's right thereafter to insist upon strict adherence to that term or any other term of this Agreement.
You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim of cause of action arising from or relating to use of the Services or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose, or will be forever barred. The "Disclaimer; Limitation of Liability" provisions of this Agreement are for the benefit of the Company and its affiliated parties, and each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce these provisions directly against you on its own behalf.
