The “Terms and Conditions” set out below were updated and are effective as of 00:00 Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) on 13/10/2015.
Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully before using this website. By using this website, you agree to accept and be bound by these Terms and Conditions as between you and San Manuel Digital LLC (“San Manuel”). If you do not agree to these Terms and Conditions, do not use this website.
This website is provided by San Manuel in partnership with GameAccount Network, a trading name for GameAccount Network PLC. All content contained on this website is copyright (c) 2018 GameAccount Network PLC, a company based in London, United Kingdom with its registered office address at 125 Kensington High Street, London W8 5SF, United Kingdom (“GameAccount”).
Save where otherwise stated, San Manuel Digital LLC shall be referred to as “San Manuel”, “us”, “we” or “our” and you are referred to as “you” or “your”.
This website, the games available on it (the “Game” or “Games”) and the underlying software and hardware platform is wholly hosted in a secure data center in Nevada.
This website and the Games offered herein, are made available to eligible end users on a free-to-play and pay-to-play basis only.
You may be awarded amounts of notional currency or virtual goods (together referred to in these Terms and Conditions as “Coins”) which can be used in order to access and play the Games. You may elect to pay real money to acquire additional amounts of Coins in order to continue playing or commence playing one or more of the Games on a pay-to-play basis. Coins awarded to or purchased by you cannot be withdrawn. Furthermore, Coins cannot be translated into money or money’s worth.
You cannot win money or money’s worth from your use of the Games in any manner whatsoever and accordingly this website is not enabled for Internet gaming nor does this website offer real money Internet gaming in any form or format whatsoever.
Other than a limited, personal, revocable, non-transferable, non-sublicensable license to use the Coins on the website, you hereby accept that you have no right or title in or to any such Coins and that we have the absolute right to manage, regulate, remove, control, modify and/or eliminate such Coins as we see fit and neither San Manuel nor GameAccount shall have any liability to you and anyone for the exercise of such rights.
ELIGIBILITY TO PLAY
This website and participation in the activities on this website is restricted in certain circumstances. Participation in the activities and Games is open only to residents of those jurisdictions where such participation is legal and not prohibited by law, including by way of age. Any Games that are made available to play online are additionally only open to individuals of legal age of majority only, in the jurisdiction in which you reside. You cannot play under any circumstances if you are not at least twenty one (21) years of age; minors may not play. Additionally, residents in countries outside of the United States, regardless of their age, may not play.
In order to avoid minors playing on this website, we reserve the right to carry out verification checks to verify the information provided by you. We may undertake a search with a third party for the purpose of verifying that you are 21 years or over. Where these checks are unable to verify that you are 21 years of age or over, we reserve the right to ask you for proof of age, satisfactory to San Manuel in its sole discretion. If we are unable to confirm that you are aged 21 or over within seventy two (72) hours (or such other period as may from time to time be specified by San Manuel) of your account being opened then we are required to suspend your account until satisfactory proof of your age is provided.
With respect to players who reside outside the United States, you may not seek to register and/or open an account within this website and in the event you circumvent the technical blocking systems employed by San Manuel, or its designees, to prevent access by residents of countries outside the United States your account will be subject to immediate closure and you will forfeit any and all Coins contained therein.
San Manuel and its designees reserve the right to carry out local research and to check with local authorities if you fail to produce evidence of your identity within 30 days of a request by San Manuel and in the event you fail to produce evidence of your identity we will treat your account as a “Dormant Account” in accordance with section 21 below.
The Games found on play.sanmanuel.com located under the ‘Online Casino’ navigation are a mixture of:
• Person-to-person or multi-player games of skill and chance combined; and
• Single-player games of chance,
and certain Game rules may have been modified slightly due to the nature of the website and the Internet. You accept and recognize that the Games are provided for entertainment purposes only and do not afford opportunities to win prizes, money or other form of real currency.
After a one player Game begins, it will continue until:
• you win;
• you lose;
• you resign; or
• your connection is terminated for any reason or the game window is closed.
In the event of a multi-stage single-player game where there are still active bets of Coins on the table, the Game state may be stored and resumed at a later date.
After person-to-person Game begins, it will continue until:
• you win;
• you lose;
• you resign; or
• 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 hand or hands of blackjack. If you do not re-connect to continue play of this session of Pro Blackjack within thirty (30) days your Coins will be deducted or forfeited to San Manuel.
In the event that:
• a disconnection occurs; or
• you close the Game-lobby window (which closes all Game Tables); or
• 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 Coins or Coins-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 Coins 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 Coins 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.
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.
It is your responsibility to safeguard your access details from any unauthorised use and we recommend that you change your password on a regular basis. You also agree that you will not lend or transfer your login details to any third party. You shall fulfil all commitments made on your account in the course of using the website and be responsible for all communication from your account with us.
We shall not be required to maintain usernames or passwords and if you misplace, forget, lose or are otherwise unable to enter the website play.sanmanuel.com (Online Casino), we will not be responsible and will not be held liable for any claims regarding your account.
MODIFICATION OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Prospective winners will be contacted by our Customer Support team and will have thirty (30) days to confirm their identity and accept prizes. We may, at any time, ask that you provide an affidavit (and supporting documentation) as to your eligibility to enter into the Tournament and reserve the right to withhold any prizes if we do not receive an affidavit and all such documentation to our entire satisfaction.
