played during the show. Each customer has one entry per game only.
2.4. Tickets for entertainment with bingo include a “stake” amount (normally £0.50 a game).
This is the amount that we put towards the cost of prizes and so is the amount that can be

already started or finished.

4. Safer Gambling
4.1. We recognise that gambling is enjoyed by the majority of participants although we
recognise that for a small minority of the population participation in gambling activities may
lead to addictive behaviour. We understand that such behaviour can cause detrimental
impact on those individuals, their families and friends.
4.2. Our main safety control is that the gambling element of our entertainment is very limited,
with only one entry per show per person and without opportunities to win significant prize
money. Ours is a ‘competitive socialising’ experience, not a gambling experience.
4.3. Nevertheless, we have a Self Exclusion Policy under which any customer can ask to be
excluded from the premises for between 6 and 12 months. We will refuse entry to any
customer who enters into a Self Exclusion agreement with us. A copy of our Self Exclusion
policy is available on request.

you give to us. Your personal data will be stored and used only in accordance with our Privacy
Policy, which is available on our website.


6. General terms
6.1. We accept no responsibility for any loss or damage to personal property.
6.2. When playing bingo it is your responsibility to alert the show’s host if you think you have
won a game. We will not be liable if the game continues and another player later wins.
6.3. The rules for each game of bingo will be told to you by the show’s host and/or displayed on screens before the game.
6.4. You must leave the premises immediately if we ask you for any reasonable reason,
including breaching any of our terms and conditions. In this regard the Duty Manager’s decision is final.


7. Customer complaints
We have a three stage procedure for customer complaints.
Stage 1
The customer should speak to the Duty Manager about their complaint, ideally at the time so
that we have an opportunity to put things right.
Stage 2
If the complaint is not satisfactorily resolved, the complaint will be referred to a Director.
Stage 3
If the Director does not resolve the complaint to the satisfaction of the customer, the matter
may be reviewed by our legal advisors and a determination provided of the most appropriate
way forward. If the complaint cannot be resolved to the customer’s satisfaction the matter
will be referred to third party arbitration.
We will use the services of the Independent Betting Arbitration Service (www.ibas-uk.com)
for independent third party arbitration of disputes relating to gambling.
