Responsible Gaming

Enjoy Chalkboard and use the platform responsibly.

Updated over a week ago

Chalkboard wants you to enjoy our platform and use it responsibly, and thus, we are committed to maintaining a safe and accountable experience for our users. All of our users should:

· Consider different ways that they can limit their play;

· Not participate in contests if it interferes with your daily life and/or responsibilities;

· Not enter contests if you are recovering from a dependency and/or under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or other substances; and

· Not enter contests if your primary goal is to recover losses.

Self-Exclusion

Any of our users are able to self-exclude themselves from participating in paid-entry contests. In order to self-exclude, simply go to Customer Support in your profile within the Chalkboard app. From there, hit the "Send us a message" button and then select "Self Exclusion" and follow the prompts to create a ticket. Electing to self-exclude will prevent you from participating in paid-entry contests within our platform; please note that certain restrictions may apply, and once you have selected a self-exclusion period you will not be able to access our paid-entry contests of skill until that exclusion period has ended. Self-exclusion will not prohibit you from making withdrawals from your Chalkboard Wallet.

Requesting Limits on Play

Any of our users are able to create certain types of limitations on their play. In order to enable such limits, simply go to Customer Support in your profile within the Chalkboard app. From there, hit the "Send us a message" button and then select "Limits" and follow the prompts to create a ticket. These limits will alter your ability to participate in paid-entry contests within our platform; please note that certain restrictions may apply, including but not limited to, a required black-out period before you can reverse certain limitations. Enabling these limits will not prohibit you from making withdrawals from your Wallet.

Statutory Limits on Deposits

Please note that certain jurisdictions may have statutory limitations on the amount you can deposit into your Wallet. Please contact us at [email protected] if you have questions regarding certain state limits on deposits.

Third-Party Requests for Limits on Play

In some jurisdictions, third-parties can request limitations on the play of others. If you are a third-party who can and wishes to limit the play of another, simply e-mail [email protected] with the subject line: “THIRD-PARTY REQUEST TO LIMIT PLAY.” In the body of the e-mail, please note the name and/or username of the person you wish to limit and what limits you are seeking. Our team will respond with any necessary documentation that is required for us make a determination on enabling your requested limits. Please note that such third-party requests are only allowable under certain state laws and unless obligated to do so pursuant to such law, Chalkboard is under no obligation to grant such requests.

No Minors

Chalkboard verifies all accounts for age and eligibility using applicable legal guidelines. If minors (as defined under applicable statute) have access to your computer or mobile device, please consider adding parental controls to prevent access to Chalkboard’s paid-entry contests. If a minor is found to be participating in paid-entry contests on Chalkboard, the account that minor was using will be closed and withdrawals will be frozen, pending review.

Complaints

Chalkboard is always here to help. If you have a complaint, concern, issue or suggestion, please e-mail us at [email protected].
