Valid documents issued by government (Passport, Driving Licence) must be submitted in order to process a withdrawal. No withdrawals for the cumulative amount of €2,000 and over will be processed, unless such documentation has been submitted by the player and verified by Energy’s finance department.

A second and every next withdrawal the same week costs a fixed fee €5 (or equivalent in other currency). The minimum withdrawal amount per transaction is no less than €20 (or equivalent in other currency) with the exception of an Account closure in which case the player has the right to withdraw the full balance no matter how much it is. The maximum withdrawal amount per transaction is determined by various payment methods available on the website.
f. The account holder's personal data in their Gaming Account and Bank Account (or for any other payment method) must correspond. Energy reserves the right to request further documentation, as proof of identity, as well as additional verification of the payment method in question.

i. Withdrawals can only be paid-out to the same account and payment method from which player's deposits have originated. By following a “closed-loop” policy (ensuring that payouts are made back to the same method as the inbound funds originated) Energy complies with “The Fourth EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive.” However, there are some occasions where this closed-loop system is impossible to enforce. Whilst ensuring compliance with the “The Fourth EU Anti-Money Laundering Directive,” Energy is also obligated to ensure our CLIENTS’ needs are served. Furthermore, sometimes technical and /or policy reasons are beyond our control, therefore some payouts cannot be made in this fashion. In these cases Energy go to all required lengths and beyond to verify an alternative account owned by the individual player. Our risk department runs a full assessment of the case. The risk department of Energy makes the final decision as to whether a payment outside of a “closed-loop” policy will be performed.

k. Funds cannot be withdrawn from one’s Account unless the same funds have been wagered at least once. Please be informed that a five percent (5%) administrative charge, with a minimum fee of €10 (or equivalent in another currency) from the last deposit may be applied for payout requests referring to amounts deposited with Energy which have not been used at least once for playing. Before such payout can be approved, it has to be assessed and confirmed by the Risk Department.

e. Energy reserves the right to request further information and documentation regarding CLIENT'S age, identity and place of residence following any deposits or prior to any withdrawals, in particular prior to first withdrawal, in order to prove CLIENT'S identity before we release funds. We also reserve the right to request such information and documentation about any person who affects a deposit on CLIENT'S Account. Such information and documentation (as Driving Licence, Government issued ID, and Passport, utility bill, Bank/Credit card Statement) will enable us to check that the personal data given during registration corresponds to data on the document. In the event of diverging data, we reserve the right to cancel the bets along with the payment of the account balance, unless the CLIENT can demonstrate entitlement to the balance by some other means. Energy reserves the right to request an image of both sides of the debit/credit card used to deposit as supporting evidence in case a deposit comes from a non 3D secure scheme (additional fraud prevention system processing) or if a customer is processing large or multiple transactions.

b. The base currency in Energy's software is EURO, but the account balance of the CLIENT may be displayed in another currency.

25. Responsible Gaming
a. At Energy we encourage our CLIENTS to enjoy gambling in a responsible manner. However, we do recognise that gambling can become addictive and problematic for some people. To help CLIENTS avoid potential problems, we offer a range of tools that can be used to control play such: different type of limits or short breaks. For more information please see our Responsible Gaming page (link at bottom of page).
b. In order to set or manage the Responsible Gaming limits, CLIENT must log into their Energy account. If a CLIENT finds that controlling their play with the available tools is not sufficient, we recommend that they consider a break or a self-exclusion.
c. Self-exclusion enables a CLIENT to request that we block them from using our services. Self-exclusion can vary in length from 24h to indefinite (International - Malta Gaming Authority).
d. It is the responsibility of the CLIENT to adhere to any self-exclusion agreement, though we are happy to help by blacklisting addresses and devices where possible (please note, this is not always possible due to technical restrictions).
e. The effectiveness of any self-exclusion agreement depends largely on the commitment of the CLIENT to manage their own behaviour. An exclusion will be most effective if a CLIENT will agree to not attempt to register again. Please be advised that exclusion should not be intended to function as a replacement for willpower or as a full guarantee to stop the CLIENT from further gambling.
f. During your self-exclusion period, every attempt will be applied to prevent the CLIENT from creating a duplicate account and any account detected with a clear link to an account under Self-exclusion will be closed upon detection and remaining unused balances will be returned to the original depositing source.
g. By accepting our terms and conditions, the CLIENT acknowledges and confirms that he/she is not excluded at our service. Therefore, no deposits, losses or winnings will be owed/refunded to a CLIENT if associated with a fraudulently created additional/duplicate account, except for remaining unused balances from deposits, which will be refunded in full. To fully investigate such cases, the Responsible Gambling or Fraud Departments are entitled to request additional forms of documentation such ID in hand and phone/voice verification.
h. (I) In case of closed accounts, any remaining balances will only be refunded upon request, and such transactions will incur a €2.50 administrative fee (or equivalent in other currency). If, after 6 months, no refund has been requested, remaining balances will be donated to charity.
(II) In the case of closed accounts subjected to a user defined self-exclusion, any remaining balances will be refunded automatically. In a small number of cases, where restrictions are imposed by payment providers, Energy reserves the right to donate any balances under €1 to charity for socially responsible causes. Finally, Energy may ask the excluded customer for additional documents if a refund is not possible back to the same method, that payment was originated from.
i. By playing games or using the gambling services at Energy, CLIENTS acknowledge that they are playing games based on, or betting on events that are subject to, luck and chance, and that through the use of the service and/or software, they are subject to the risk of losing money. Thus, CLIENTS accept that any and all losses suffered are the sole responsibility of the CLIENT.
j. Gambling whilst under the age of 18 is a criminal offense and we take our responsibilities to prevent access for those under the age of 18 very seriously. Manual age verification checks are carried out and whilst we aim to make the process as seamless and unobtrusive as possible it may be that further information will have to be obtained directly from the CLIENT. For CLIENTS aged 18-21 we require proof-of-age documentation to be provided before any withdrawal can be made.
k. Please note, ‘idle time’ is reached after 40 minutes of no activity, at which point clients will be logged out automatically. It is the responsibility of individual clients to maintain the security of their accounts by making sure that no one else has access to their passwords or login details. We recommend that clients do not leave themselves logged in if their device is potentially accessible by others, especially minors or those with known gambling problems.
l. If at the time of requesting self-exclusion, there are still outstanding bets, where the result is not yet known, then if the bet/s subsequently wins the corresponding sums shall be sent once the event has been settled.
m. If the CLIENT has a reason to believe that a person under the age of eighteen years is accessing our services, please contact us immediately. Our support team can be contacted via phone on +356 9994 5112 (Malta), email; firstname.lastname@example.org or through the LiveChat at our website.
n. Our websites include links to external third-party organisations and information that may be helpful to problematic gamblers. If a CLIENT feels that they might be developing a gambling addiction or problem, we encourage them to consult these resources or to contact us for additional information. In order to protect a vital interest of those affected by problem gambling who are in a critical situation and are expressing suicidal thoughts to our agents via direct communication, we reserve the right to contact relevant local authorities to seek an immediate action.
o. Please be advised that all sensitive data related to a problem gambling or exclusions has to be collected and kept on records to carry out our statutory functions related to affected individuals.
Energy is committed to providing the best quality of support for our players.
One of the ways in which we can continue to improve our service is by listening and responding to our Clients and, in particular, by responding positively to complaints. However, we do admit that reaching a fair outcome in all cases is not always possible.
Therefore, if a Client feels that their case might need further escalation, they should contact our customer support agents by email at email@example.com. Energy customer care representatives shall acknowledge the receipt of the complaint to the Client in a maximum period of 3 working days.
Our agents are also available on live chat and phone to ensure that making a complaint can be as accessible as possible. The 'Help' section on our website is there to assist the player in selecting the most appropriate communication channel to reach our customer support.
Please be advised that complaints placed via social media will not to be considered as an official complaint.
For the Client’s protection and to ensure the best possible service, telephone conversations and other relevant communication between Client and Energy may be recorded and/or monitored.
Please note that while Energy is the operator offering the games to the Client, Energy has not supplied or developed the games and therefore does not have ownership of, nor responsibility for such games. Any queries or complaints relating to the functioning of the games will therefore be forwarded to and addressed by the relevant licensing authority in relation to that specific game.
To deal with Client’s complaint in the shortest possible time frame, it must contain clear information about the identity (name, surname, username, registered email and residential address) as well as all relevant details about the case (the name of the game, the time and date of the incident with a detailed explanation).
The customer support managers (other managers, if necessary) assigned to the escalated case will commit to their best efforts to promptly resolve a reported matter internally. The whole complaint process should take no more than 8 weeks to be assessed and responded to.
An informal approach is appropriate when it can be achieved but if concerns cannot be satisfactorily resolved informally, then the formal complaints procedure should be followed.
We strive to ensure that all Clients are informed of our final decision and also receive orientation about the necessary steps to take an official dispute to a registered Alternative Dispute Resolution Body, also known as an ‘ADR’. An ‘ADR’ is an independent third party, which mediates disputes and assess all the facts and information provided by both parties and issues an impartial decision on the matter. eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA) is the ADR entity for Energy complaints.
Telephone Number: +44 20 7887 1480
Additionally, The Online dispute resolution (ODR) platform can provide further alternative dispute resolution services within the EU. More information is available here: http://ec.europa.eu/odr
If the CLIENT still feels that their complaint has not been resolved to their satisfaction, they can bring the dispute to the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA) by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Furthermore, please be advised that any Client has the right to bring proceedings against an operator to any court of competent jurisdiction.
If there is any concern the CLIENT would like to raise with us or would like our assistance with, please do not hesitate to let us know. Our professional and friendly customer representatives are always here to help.
