We make sure that we abide by the regulations and guidance of all jurisdictions within which we market our products, across all media channels and at any events with which we are associated.
We hope to lead the industry in promoting responsible gambling activity. The below sets out the key areas of our policies.
All of our marketing communications are designed to appeal to people who are legally old enough to gamble. We only market our products in a fair, open responsible manner, and always ensure that our marketing and/or products do not appeal to children and do not to encourage illegal or antisocial behavior.
We avoid using themes, images or symbols that may offend or demean. In circumstances where a marketing communication is to be used across multiple jurisdictions, we ensure that we are sensitive to, and do not exploit, cultural beliefs, traditions or religious custom, relating to gambling, luck or otherwise, of all customers receiving the marketing materials.
Honest, Open and Fair
We want to be upfront with our customers. Our marketing communications clearly portray any offers in full so as not to abuse their trust or exploit any lack of knowledge.
We ensure that we communicate all of the material factors which may affect a customer's decisions, so that they can take them into account, including eligibility requirements in order to qualify for the advertised offer and any time restrictions applicable to the successful redemption of the advertised offer.
All of our marketing communications contain clear links to the applicable terms and conditions of the respective advertised offers. These terms are always clearly made available to the customer.
All of our marketing communications shall comply with the applicable laws, regulations and codes of conduct applicable in the jurisdictions in which we undertake marketing activities.
We do not incite, condone or tolerate any form of discrimination, whether based on race, nationality, religion, gender, age, disability or sexual orientation.
We do not incite, condone or tolerate any form of violent, unlawful or antisocial behaviour. This extends to all advertising - we do not associate with advertising linked to any illegal websites, including websites which facilitate the dissemination of copyright infringing material.
As part of our commitment to our customers, we do not make any claim, suggestion or insinuation that individuals can attain social or professional success as a result of betting or playing our games. This includes representing gambling as a 'rite of passage'.
Safety & Health
Our marketing communications reflect moderate and responsible gambling of a non-professional nature. This means that both the language we use and the promotion terms themselves are designed not to encourage excessive, irresponsible or unhealthy participation.
We do not target or address at-risk groups. Any suspended, closed, excluded or self-excluded account holders will stop receiving marketing communications.
10cric marketing shall never suggest that gambling can provide an escape from personal, professional or educational problems, nor that it can be a solution to financial concerns.
Children and Young People
All of our marketing communications are intended only for those old enough to participate in gambling in the targeted jurisdiction.
To ensure that minors are protected, we make sure that our marketing communications are not intended to appeal to anyone below the legal age of participation in the targeted jurisdiction.
We do not include anywhere in our marketing materials images or representations of anyone who could be perceived to be under the age of 25.
All marketing communications are only placed in media where we can reasonably expect it to meet a predominantly adult audience.
We do not allow minors to participate in any promotions or games linked to betting or gambling.
Contracted Third Parties
We accept responsibility for the actions of all contracted third parties, including our marketing affiliates.
