2.5
The customer hereby consents to Happytiger.co.uk confirming the customer’s details, including verification by a third-party provider of age and identity verification. If these details cannot be confirmed using our automated systems, the customer may be asked to verify their identity by providing documentation showing the accuracy of the information in accordance with Happytiger.co.uk’s guidelines in place at any given time, including copies of e.g. their driver’s licence, passport, utility bill or bank statement.

If Happytiger.co.uk incurs costs as a result of the reversal from the bank, Happytiger.co.uk also reserves the right to deduct an amount equal to the costs incurred from the customer’s gambling account.

In the event of an error which makes it impossible for the customer to continue the game after the interruption as described above, the customer will be reimbursed, only to the extent refunding the stake is applicable, to the customer’s gambling account.

6. Bonuses, tournaments, promotions etc.

6.1
Happytiger.co.uk may offer the customer a bonus e.g. on creation of a gambling account, deposit of funds and participation in games. Only one bonus can be used per gambling account per event. Where a bonus is offered, this will be clearly stated on Happytiger.co.uk, with all significant terms clearly set out in the same place as the offer. A customer may only have one active bonus at a time per product. In order to activate another bonus, any active bonus must therefore be played to the end or closed. Happytiger.co.uk reserves the right to cancel a customer’s bonus at any time if it judges that the rules for a bonus described in these terms and conditions or the bonus terms have not been complied with, or in the event of other improper behaviour that Happytiger.co.uk considers contrary to the intent of the bonus (“bonus abuse”). Upon cancellation, the bonus and any winnings made from the bonus will be forfeited and will not be paid to the customer, and any amounts improperly paid out will be recovered. If there is not enough in the customer’s gambling account to cover the amount, Happytiger.co.uk may offset the outstanding amount against the customer’s future deposit of funds into the gambling account or against any winnings paid into the gambling account.

Funds in relation to an accepted bonus offer on Happytiger.co.uk is consumed in the following order: 1) the customer’s initial deposit of funds paid to activate a bonus, it is a condition that the initial deposit must be played through in full before any bonus funds are available, 2) bonus funds and any winnings from play with bonus funds, and 3) funds deposited for the participation in games not related to the acceptance of a bonus offer.
6.2
Happytiger.co.uk sometimes runs promotions. Specific terms and conditions apply to such promotions. These will be clearly displayed alongside the relevant promotion. If the customer breaches the conditions for participation in a promotion, or in the event of other improper behaviour that Happytiger.co.uk considers to be contrary to the intent of the promotion, Happytiger.co.uk reserves the right to disqualify the customer and refuse to pay or award a prize or to recover any prize that has been improperly paid or awarded. Customers who lawfully win a prize from a promotion must accept the relevant prize “as is”. The customer will not be entitled to an alternative monetary prize unless Happytiger.co.uk chooses to offer this. When a customer wins a prize which is not in monetary form, Happytiger.co.uk will make all reasonable efforts to contact the winner using that person’s contact details. If Happytiger.co.uk has been unable to contact the winner within a reasonable time, Happytiger.co.uk reserves the right to choose another winner instead of the original winner or to withhold or cancel the prize altogether, without any liability towards the winner. Happytiger.co.uk will not be liable if a promotion cannot be run as planned for reasons outside Happytiger.co.uk’s control.

7. Jackpot pools

7.1
Individual games may involve jackpot pools which increase with the wagers placed on the relevant game. A predefined percentage of the total wagers on the game will be added to the jackpot pool for the game; for more information, see specific rules for the game in question. If a jackpot is triggered, Happytiger.co.uk will deposit an amount in the jackpot pool, so no jackpot pool will ever be empty. This amount will be stated in the instructions for the relevant game. The customer is therefore guaranteed a minimum amount, plus a percentage of the total amount accumulated at the time when the jackpot pool is released. The customer can view the jackpot pool for every game at any time. The chance of winning a jackpot will increase in proportion to the amount wagered.
7.2
The jackpot will be awarded using a certified random number generator. If the result displayed in the game does not match the result held on Happytiger.co.uk’s server, or several customers believe they have won the same jackpot, the result held on the server will be used. Where Happytiger.co.uk becomes aware that there is a difference between these results, or where a customer claims to have won a jackpot, Happytiger.co.uk will examine the result on the server and the customer(s) involved will be informed by email of the result on the server and the outcome within 3 working days.
7.3
Happytiger.co.uk may temporarily suspend a jackpot scheme in the event of maintenance to servers, updates etc. It will be stated under the individual game whether the jackpot scheme has been temporarily suspended, and when it is expected to resume. When the jackpot scheme resumes, the pool will have the same value as before the interruption.
7.4
Happytiger.co.uk may terminate the jackpot scheme in a game at any time. This may be done with no less than two weeks’ notice. The date and time of the end of a jackpot scheme will be clearly shown when the customer enters the particular game. If a jackpot scheme is terminated as described above because a new game has been launched, the pool will be transferred to the jackpot pool for the other game.
7.5
In the games involving a jackpot pool, the chances of hitting the jackpot and the outcome of this will be improved with every credit staked in the game. The chance, and the outcome, will decrease again in that game when winnings from the game are paid out.

8. Chat

8.1
If the customer is provided with access to a chat function on Happytiger.co.uk, they must always use the chat function in compliance with the chat rules published by Happytiger.co.uk at any given time.

On account setup, a customer is given the option of setting a daily, weekly or monthly limit for deposits into the customer’s gambling account when this is set up. The specified limit can be changed at any time. A change to previously defined limits may be made by the customer in the gambling account. An increase to a previously defined payment limit will only take effect 24 hours after the request and you must take positive action to confirm this request. A decrease to a previously defined payment limit will apply immediately.
9.2
To cultivate healthy playing habits a customer will be offered the option of setting a fixed interval activity reminder, when playing games. The purpose of this reminder is to inform the customer that time has passed and give the customer an opportunity to reflect on whether it is time to take a break. When the activity reminder is set, you will be informed of the elapsed time as well as the customer’s total money spent and won since login. The activity reminder also provides a link to the customer’s gambling account history and an option to close the current game.

9.4

9.6
Happytiger.co.uk may close a gambling account at any time based on its assessment of account activity; this may include setting individual deposit and wager limits for the particular customer, if Happytiger.co.uk deems this to be necessary in the interests of responsible gambling based on the customer’s behavioural patterns.
