Pursuant to Article 7 para. 1 AMLO-SFGB, the casino must obtain a written declaration from the player stating who the beneficial owner is if:
- it knows that the player is not identical with that person or it has doubts about this;
- the player carries out transactions which lead to identification in accordance with Article 3 or which must be registered in accordance with Article 10 AMLO-SFGB;
- the assets that the player brings in obviously exceed his or her financial capacity, or

For certain transactions, we are required by the Ordinance of the Swiss Federal Gaming Board (SFGB) on the Due Diligence of Casinos to Combat Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing to request further information from you. Until the legally required information and documents are provided, the player account may remain blocked.
If necessary, jackpots.ch will inform the law enforcement authorities and/or file a report with the Money Laundering Reporting Office Switzerland (MROS).

If the player fails to attend the interview, part of the costs will be invoiced. A voluntary exclusion from the games can only be lifted at the request of the player and at the earliest after 3 months from the start of the exclusion.
9. Bonus rules
Bonus funds (bonuses) is money that can be credited to a player account in connection with promotions (for example, when registering or when depositing credit). The conditions for granting, using or redeeming a bonus are defined in these bonus rules. However, there are also bonuses whose rules are not described in these bonus rules, but which are described on the website at the time they are granted or for the particular games. It is clearly stated which rules apply to which bonuses.
Bonuses are used as bets in the games offered on the website. Before the bonus credit is claimed, you will automatically play existing bets with real money. If you have bonus credit, all winnings that exceed the real money balance at the start of the game session will be automatically converted into bonuses. Please note that bonus money cannot be used in games that have a progressive jackpot ( you can find these games here ).
Bonuses are converted into real money when the relevant playthrough requirement is met. The playthrough requirement specifies how much real money and/or bonus money must be wagered in order to convert the bonus money into real money. You can see the current playthrough requirement for each bonus in your account. The wagering requirement for converting bonus credit into real money* is generally as follows:
- Slot games 30
- RNG table games 300
- Live games 300
*For special promotions, the playthrough amount may differ from the values shown here. In this case, it is explicitly indicated in the specific bonus. However, the ratio between slot machine and table game bets of 100% to 10% will always remain the same.
Take, for example, a bonus credit worth CHF 5. If it is wagered on slot machines, every Swiss franc must be wagered 30 times before the bonus is played through and can be paid out. This means that you must place bets amounting to CHF 150.- (30 x CHF 5.-) to realize your bonus.
The default bonus playthrough deadline is one month. In the event of a deviation from this period, this will be noted in details of the specific promotion. jackpots.ch reserves the right to withhold or cancel bonus credit if the bonus credit offered has not been used within the stated period from the time of receipt.
You have the option of withdrawing the real money balance in your account at any time. However, you must first cancel any bonuses for which the playthrough requirements have not yet been met.
