F. Winnings

Winnings will be deposited directly into Your Account. Any amounts that are mistakenly credited as winnings to Your Account remain our property and will automatically be transferred out of Your Account upon confirmation of the error.

Provider reserves the right to review each referral for possible fraud. You may not refer family members or persons located in your household. Any abuse of the referral system may result in your return of the referral fee and/or the termination of your account in Provider’s sole discretion.

H. Withdrawal Process

You may request a withdrawal of funds from your available cash account balance in Your Account at any time. The minimum withdrawal is $10.00 U.S. dollars or your entire balance (if less than $5 U.S. dollars). Account holders with pending deposits must wait until those funds clear before requesting a withdrawal.

Processing of requested funds back to a credit card, debit card or PayPal account may take up to five (5) business days; provided, however, the Website reserves the right to freeze Your Account and/or delay a request for withdrawal of funds pending completion of any investigation of reported or suspected abuse by a User requesting withdrawal of funds.

Provider reserves the right to require you or credit card company (if applicable) to submit verification of identification to ascertain the validity of a withdrawal request and the identity of the User. Withdrawal payments will not be made until such verification is received; if Provider has not received verification within ten (10) days, the withdrawal request will be cancelled and the Account in question will be suspended.

If Your Account is closed by the Provider for a violation of the Terms and Conditions, Your deposits and winnings may be voided and not returned to you. In such an event, Provider uses these funds to defray the costs of administration and enforcement of the Terms and Conditions.

There are a number of Contests on this Website in which you create and manage fantasy teams for golf. The Website offers a plurality of different types of Contests including head to head challenges and multiple team competitions with varying roster requirements and number of rounds of drafting. Draft rules, player rankings, entry fees and scoring may differ from Contest to Contest. Each of Provider’s Contests are governed by specific rules, as may be modified from time to time, which are set forth in the Official Rules and are incorporated into these Terms and Conditions by this reference.
