This action can only be taken by Yourself directly with the Belgian Gaming Commission. Whilst they will attempt to action re-opening instantly, there is no guarantee this will take effect within 24 hours. All returns from self-exclusion periods are subject to a 24-hour “cooling-off” period. Once deactivated, You will be able to access existing or create new accounts.
- Whilst under self-exclusion, You agree to not attempt to avoid any of the preventative mechanisms or procedures put in place by either GGPoker or the Belgian Gaming Commission by accessing existing or creating any new accounts. Whilst the Belgian Gaming Commission is intended to assist You with managing Your gambling, it is not intended to function as a replacement for self-control. We cannot guarantee that it will always result in You being denied access to services or refused when attempting to create new accounts.
- On account of the level of diligence we have employed in restricting Your access to gaming services whilst under self-exclusion, GGPoker accepts no liability or responsibility should You, or a third-party, continue in any way to use our gaming services. In addition, in instances beyond our reasonable control, such as malfunctioning software, or an inability to recognise Your identity immediately under the jurisdiction of the Belgian Gaming Commission, that results in Your ability to access existing or create new accounts, GGPoker again accepts no liability or responsibility.
