MOBILE WAGERING ACCOUNT AND MOBILE APPLICATION
TERMS OF SERVICE
These Terms of Service (“Terms“) are a binding agreement between you (“you“) and Golden Gate Casino, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company doing business as the Golden Gate Hotel & Casino (“Company“). These Terms govern your mobile wagering account through Company (“Wagering Account“) and your use of the Circa | Sports™ mobile application (including all related documentation, the “Application“). The Application is licensed, not sold, to you.
- Opening a Wagering Account. To open a Wagering Account, you must be 21 years of age or older, be a member of Company’s Club One™ and appear in person before a representative of Company located inside its facility at 1 Fremont Street, Las Vegas, Nevada 89101 or such other facility as may be approved by Company from time to time (each, a “Company Approved Facility“) to complete the applicable Wagering Account application. Unless otherwise authorized by Company, Wagering Accounts may only be used by the person named on such application and agents or other representatives are not permitted. As part of the application process, you may be required to provide a valid governmental issued photo identification and complete certain Internal Revenue Service forms. It is a condition of your access to and use of your Wagering Account and the Application that all information you provide in connection with the application process or otherwise is correct, current and complete. For clarity, you are expressly prohibited from applying for a Wagering Account anonymously or with use of a fictitious name. You hereby consent to Company verifying your registration details to confirm that you are of appropriate legal age and have otherwise provided correct, current and complete information. In opening your Wagering Account, you understand and accept the risk that you may lose money and you represent and warrant that you are the rightful owner of the money deposited in your Wagering Account.
- Wagering Account Deposits, Withdrawals and Wagers. Deposits into your Wagering Account, as well as all withdrawals, must be made either (a) through the Application or (b) in person at a Company Approved Facility during normal business hours. A minimum deposit of $50.00 must be made to open your Wagering Account, and all deposits to your Wagering Account thereafter must be at least $20.00. All Wagering Account deposits must be made in cash or such other form as the Company may approve, and Wagering Account withdrawals shall be in cash or such other form as you and the Company may agree. No interest shall accrue on deposited funds. Company shall make a voice, print, electronic or other approved record of each of your wagers and shall not accept a wager if Company’s recording system is inoperable. You are responsible for all wagers placed from your Wagering Account, and a Wagering Account wager will not be accepted if its total value exceeds your Wagering Account balance. All odds are subject to change and Company reserves the right to refuse any wager or delete or limit any selections prior to the acceptance of the wagers. You acknowledge and agree that a wager placed through your Wagering Account is binding on you and Company only when the Application displays “Bet accepted,” after which such wager cannot be cancelled. Wagers will be deducted directly from your Wagering Account balance, and winnings from wagers will be credited directly to your Wagering Account. Company’s record of your confirmation of all wagers shall be deemed to be the transaction of record, and such records shall be made available to the Board (as defined below) upon request.
- Geographic Restrictions and Time Limitations. You are prohibited from making any wager through your Wagering Account from outside the State of Nevada. Wagers will only be accepted during Circa | Sports’ operating hours, which may be adjusted from time to time by Company in its sole discretion.

You are responsible for all applicable taxes, and winnings will not be released to your Wagering Account until all applicable tax forms are completed and received by Company.
- Closing Your Wagering Account. Your Wagering Account will automatically close after 16 months unless you place a wager from it during such period or otherwise renew your Wagering Account for an additional 16-month period by completing a Company renewal application. You may also close your Wagering Account at any time by completing applicable Company Wagering Account closing documentation. When your Wagering Account is closed for any reason, Company shall immediately return its balance to you, subject to compliance with applicable law and regulations and Company’s house rules, by sending a check to your address of record or using such other method as Company deems reasonable.
- Reservation of Rights. Company reserves the right, in its sole discretion but only to the extent permitted by applicable law and regulations, to refuse the establishment or maintenance of your Wagering Account for what it deems good and sufficient reason; to refuse to accept all or part of any wager made through your Wagering Account for what it deems good and sufficient reason; to limit deposits to your Wagering Account for what it deems good and sufficient reason; refuse to accept all or part of any deposits made to your Wagering Account for what it deems good and sufficient reason; cease the offering of Company’s Wagering Account system altogether; suspend your Wagering Account at any time, subject to these Terms; unless there is a pending Board (defined below) investigation or other dispute with you, close your Wagering Account at any time, subject to these Terms; or declare that any or all wagers will no longer be received.
