Your account will be categorised as a dormant account if you fail to log in and undertake a transaction at least once in any 12-month period. If your account remains dormant and is not re-activated within 30 days after it was categorised as dormant, a monthly administrative fee of £5 (or equivalent in other currencies) will be applied and set-off against your account balance. Such administrative fee shall continue to be applied (i) until your account is re-activated; (ii) until your account balance reaches less than £5 (or equivalent in other currencies); or (iii) up to three (3) years, whichever occurs first.

You may re-activate your dormant account at any time, prior to it being closed due to dormancy, by logging into your account and undertake a transaction. Your account will be permanently closed should it remain dormant for three (3) years or more, and we reserve the right to set aside funds remaining in your account (if any) for donation to nominated charity(ies) and good causes chosen by us.

With the exception of account re-activation within a 3-year period following dormancy, all other actions taken against your dormant account are irreversible. These include application of all administrative fees, funds set aside for donation, and account closure.

We will attempt to contact you by telephone, e-mail or written letter using the registered details you have provided following your account becoming dormant and prior to the first application of administrative fee on your dormant account.

2.23 My account is now dormant. Can it be re-activated?

Yes, simply log into your account as usual and undertake a transaction in order for your account to be re-activated. You will not be able, however, to re-activate your account if it has been dormant for over three (3) years.

2.24 Why have you charged a monthly administrative fee on my account?

Pursuant to our Terms and Conditions, a monthly administrative fee of £5 (or equivalent in other currencies) will be applied and set-off against your account balance should your account remain dormant and is not re-activated within 30 days after it was categorised as dormant. An account is categorised as dormant when there has been no account login and transactions performed on the account in any 12-month period.

Pursuant to our Terms and Conditions, all administrative fees applied to your account are regrettably irreversible and non-refundable.

As a responsible operator, we take our social responsibility very seriously and strive to maintain a strong commitment to protecting the young/children and vulnerable people by providing a responsible gambling environment to our players. We recognise that, although gambling should be enjoyed as a recreational activity, it may nevertheless cause a problem for a minority of our players and/or their families.

We aim to prevent compulsive usage and underage access to our games whilst simultaneously providing a friendly and entertaining online gambling experience to our players. As a reputable and responsible gambling operator, the well-being of our players is of utmost importance.

3.9 I have applied self-exclusion on my account. Does this exclusion automatically apply to all other gambling accounts that I have with other gambling operators?

Self-exclusion applied on your SportPesa account does not currently automatically extend to other gambling accounts that you hold with other gambling operators. We strongly encourage you to consider applying self-exclusion on all other gambling accounts that you own.

3.10 I would like to cancel/remove/lift the self-exclusion applied on my account, what should I do?

If self-exclusion applied on your account had expired, please contact Customer Services at care@sportpesa.com who will assist to remove/lift the exclusion and re-activate your account. Please also confirm at this point if you would like to opt in to receiving our marketing materials and newsletters, so you could take advantage of the various promotions and offers that we run from time to time. A 24-hour cooling-off period will be applied following your request to remove/lift the exclusion before you are able to access your account and resume activities.

If self-exclusion applied on your account is still running and has not expired, you are not allowed under any circumstances to cancel/remove/lift the exclusion and re-activate your account.

If you have applied permanent self-exclusion, your account will be excluded permanently and no re-activation is possible.

5. Withdrawal
+

5.1 What are 'Net Deposits'?

We have various security and anti-money laundering checks in place to ensure your money is kept safe.

When using more than one payment method, you must withdraw at least the same amount deposited back to each method used.

The Net Deposit figure is the difference between the Total Deposits and Total Withdrawals made using that payment method.

For example, if you have made a deposit of 20.00 from your Mastercard and 30.00 from your Skrill account and have yet to withdraw, your Net Deposits are 20.00 for your Mastercard and 30.00 for your Skrill account.

If you have a winning bet and you now have 100.00 available for withdrawal, you will need to pay the 20.00 back to your Mastercard and the 30.00 back to your Skrill account, once both of these Net Deposit figures are returned to 0.00 then the remaining 50.00 can be withdrawn to the withdrawal method of your choice.

You can see your current Net Deposit values in the following places:

  • Account Details page -> Financial Details section -> Payment methods.
  • Request Withdrawal page.

For further clarification or assistance with Net Deposit functionality, please contact our customer service team at care@sportpesa.com and we will be happy to help.

5.2. How do I make a Withdrawal?

Withdrawals can be made from the your account section.

Subject to our Terms, funds deposited or credited to your account will remain in your Account unless you submit an online withdrawal request for the same (which request must not exceed the balance you are permitted to withdrawal from your account at the time of such request) to be transferred to the method which you used to deposit funds to your Account.

Where this is not possible, SportPesa reserve the right to request additional information and documentation from you as stated in of our Terms and Conditions, so that we may carry out routine security checks and authorise any alternative withdrawal method requested.

5.3 How long will my withdrawal take?

Withdrawals to Credit/Debit card typically take 2-5 working days to reach your bank account but can, on occasions, take longer depending on your bank. Withdrawals via Bank Transfer can take up to 10 working days to reach your bank account.

Withdrawal requests will only be considered after a customer’s identity has been fully verified. On occasion, we may require you to supply a copy of the relevant card with the card holders name and the last 4 digits only visible. All other information should be blanked out before sending the copy to us otherwise the copy will be destroyed and you will be required to send another compliant copy.
