Welcome to WinPort Casino (referred to as “We,” “Us,” “Our,” or “WinPort”). As a responsible online gaming platform, we are committed to ensuring the security and well-being of our users. This Underage Gaming Policy outlines our dedication to preventing underage individuals from accessing and participating in our gaming services.
Age Restriction and Legal Compliance
Legal Age Requirement: To use our gaming services, individuals must meet the legal age requirement in their jurisdiction. The legal gambling age varies depending on the location, and it is your responsibility to be aware of and adhere to these legal requirements.
Strict Compliance: We take the legal age requirement seriously. We do not tolerate attempts to circumvent or misrepresent age information. If you are not of legal gambling age, you are prohibited from using our services.
Measures to Prevent Underage Gaming
Age Verification: During the registration process and account creation, we implement robust age verification checks to ensure that users meet the legal age requirement. These checks may include verifying your date of birth, government-issued identification, or other age-verification methods.
Parental Control Suggestions: We encourage parents and guardians to use parental control software or filtering tools that are readily available to restrict access to gaming websites by minors. These tools can help ensure a secure online environment for the whole family.
Educational Resources: We provide educational resources on our website and within our responsible gaming section. These resources include information about the legal gambling age in various jurisdictions and responsible gaming practices.
Consequences for Underage Gaming
Account Closure: If we discover that an account holder is underage, we will immediately close their account. Any funds or winnings in the account will be confiscated, and no refunds will be issued.
Reporting to Authorities: In cases of suspected underage gaming or fraudulent misrepresentation of age, we reserve the right to report the matter to the appropriate legal authorities.
Reporting Underage Gaming
Community Reporting: We encourage members of our community to report any suspicions of underage gaming. If you believe that a user is underage, please contact our support team immediately. We take these reports seriously and will investigate them promptly.
Parent/Guardian Reporting: Parents or guardians who suspect that a minor has gained unauthorized access to our platform should contact us. We will take the necessary steps to address the situation promptly and assist in resolving the issue.
