The player accepts that transfers through the bank can result in several days before the money is credited to the bank Account or the credit card of a player and SDT have no control on the amount of time each respective bank or service provider take to place money into the player Account once SDT have placed the instruction with the bank, credit card provider or other payment solution provider .  The parties accept that this is a banking process over which SDT has no control, and that therefore any payment processes are the sole responsibility of banks which the player hereby acknowledges and accepts.

As soon as the clients payment is processed this will be visible to the client in his Account with SDT.

We though do not expect this to take more than a working day.13.  If a player decides to deposit money through the use of a credit card he needs to identify himself at any time so requested. In order to identify himself, he needs to send a copy of the front and the back of the credit card to SDT. Since January 1, 2010, the Malta  Gaming Authority obliges players to do so, in order to prevent credit cardholders from misuse of their cards. We will block the Account and withhold all payments until the documents have been received and approved by SDT. This is a one-time process per credit card registered.

We cannot pay out any withdrawal requests to a MasterCard.

14.  A player can only request withdrawals in the exact same manner as the way he made a deposit. In the long run, verified and regular players can change these particular settings.

18.  A player can rest assured that when a deposit is made from his or her bank Account, the money will be credited to the casino Account. In case of a delay we continue to provide a 100% guarantee that the money won’t ‘get lost’ in our system.
