At BingoExtra.com we take underage gambling very seriously and request that if you share a household with minors (under the age of 18) you ensure that they are not able to access BingoExtra.com. To do this, you can use a program such as CYBERsitter or Net Nanny, which can be found at www.cybersitter.com & www.netnanny.com
You cannot use the Online Bingo and/or the Website if you are under 18 years of age, under any circumstances.

Any such additional information will be kept confidential.
For customers that wish to restrict their gambling, Bingo Extra offers a self-exclusion facility. On request, Bingo Extra will close any account for a minimum period of 6 months. During an exclusion period, the account cannot be re-opened for any reason. A player can close his/her account at any time by contacting our 24/7 Customer Support team on 0800 279 7930 (Freephone) or 0203 770 7189 (Landline) or by emailing email@example.com with the player’s username and registered email details of the account which is to be closed. Customers are encouraged to consider extending their self-exclusion to other remote gambling operators currently used by them.
A self-exclusion can be activated immediately without any cooling-off period. However, if a player wishes to consider the self-exclusion further (for example to discuss with problem gambling groups) the player may return at a later date to enter request for a self-exclusion.
Upon self-exclusion all future wagers, pre-purchased bingo tickets, loyalty points, bonus funds and entries in any promotions will be forfeited. These will not be reinstated if the account is reopened after the self-exclusion period. All remaining balances provided the terms and conditions are met, less any active bonuses will be transferred to the player bank card, bank account, paid by cheque or transferred to any other payment method which we make available.
Accounts closed as part of our self-exclusion policy cannot be re-opened for any reason until the self-exclusion period has expired. Upon expiry of the self-exclusion period a player may request to re-open a closed account by contacting our 24/7 Customer Support team on free phone 0800 279 7930 (Freephone) or 0203 770 7189 (Landline) with the details of the account to be re-opened. When a request to re-open is made, a player will need to wait for a 24 hour cooling off period before that the account can be re-activated.
We will use all reasonable endeavors to ensure compliance with our responsible gaming self-exclusion policy. We will take all reasonable steps to ensure that whilst a player is self-excluded, the player do not receive any marketing material from us. However, we cannot be held liable for any 3rd third party affiliate marketing that a player may receive which remains beyond our control. Also, a player may still receive promotional/marketing material for up to 21 days after account closure if such request for self-exclusion is made after a campaign launch.
A player accepts that we have no responsibility or liability whatsoever if the player continues to deposit and wager using additional not previously disclosed accounts or if the player opens up a new account with substantially the same personal registration information, albeit inputted into the registration form in a different way.
