Terms of Service

Last modified: 03 June, 2020

  1. The purpose of the Site

    1. In order to ensure fair play, and that every member is treated with the respect they deserve, we present these binding Terms of Service.

      These Terms of Service apply to websites and interactive services (individually a "Service" and collectively the "Services") owned or operated by Bountie Holdings Pte. Ltd. and any of its subsidiaries and affiliates ("Bountie", "we" or "us"), which includes, without limitation, Bountie Esports Arena Pte. Ltd., and Bountie’s white label partners . By signing up for an account and becoming a member to participate in any game or tournament offered on app.bountie.io (the "Site"), you confirm your knowledge of, and agreement to, be bound by the most up-to-date version of these Terms of Service, which can be accessed from the Site.

      Bountie may modify these Terms of Service at any time, without any advance notice. You are responsible for reviewing these Terms of Service periodically for any modifications. You may also check on our FAQ page for more information, or email us at [email protected] with any queries you may have. Your continued use of the Site following such modifications signifies your acceptance of these modifications. Additional terms may apply to your use of any Service, including contest rules and eligibility. We will provide these terms to you or post them on the website pages to which they apply; they are incorporated by reference into these Terms of Service. If there is a conflict between these Terms of Service and any additional terms that apply to a particular Service, the additional terms will control.

    2. Users who do not comply with the Terms of Service will face consequences as hereinafter described. Please note that if a member's account is closed due to a violation of the Terms of Service, Bountie reserves the right to determine how the member's account balance will be distributed.

    3. Our goal at Bountie is to enable gamers of all skill levels to compete in Tournaments, Leagues, and other competitive formats in skill-based games, such as Mobile Legends and Dota 2. Users (and only Users) will be able to participate in Free and “Paid entry” Competitions and win prizes in the form of Bountie Gold, fiat currency, merchandise, gaming products (e.g. peripherals, clothing and in-game items) and anything of value. Users in Paid entry Tournaments pay a pre-agreed sum of money (an entry fee) into a Tournament Prize pool, where the winner(s) of the Tournament win a predetermined share of the Prize pool, minus a commission to Bountie where applicable.

    4. Bountie’s Match and Tournament services (henceforth “Services”) are categorized as “Games of skill” and the outcome of any Match or Tournament played is solely the result of skill, not chance. You can either participate in Paid entry Competitions, by using funds from Your User Account, or Free Competitions with both monetary and non-monetary prizes. You may exchange Bountie Gold into products or services on our eCommerce store or transfer it to another user.

  2. Eligibility and Restrictions on Participation

Bountie reserves the right to confirm that such permission has been granted and to close or restrict any Accounts until Bountie is satisfied that a parent or legal guardian has read the Terms of Service and agrees to allow their minor child to hold an account.

    3. Certain sections of the Site are age gated to prevent minors from accessing Services such as Pay-to-enter Tournaments. Minors may be prohibited from playing games or entering Tournaments based on ESRB or other game ratings, or conditions set by Bountie. All signed up account holders may play free or non-prizing tournament on the Site (subject to the age rating of the game). Members over the age of 18 or from certain countries may choose to also play pay-to-enter games and Tournaments.

    4. If you open an account and/or participate in any tournament or game offered on the Site while located in a prohibited jurisdiction, you will be in violation of the law of such jurisdiction and these Terms of Service, and subject to having your account suspended or terminated and all winnings (if any) voided.

    5. Officers, directors and agents of Bountie and its affiliates are not eligible to participate in any Competitions, other than for test and product development purposes.

    6. Bountie may at any time require You to provide proof of eligibility to allow You access to the Site. Failure to provide evidence of identification and/or eligibility satisfactory to Bountie, in its sole and absolute discretion, shall result in the suspension and/or termination of such User Account.

    2. If You do not pay the fee, You will not be able to participate in the Matches and Tournaments which requires a fee to be paid.

    3. When a member participates in a pay-to-enter tournament, any entry fees for such pay-to-enter tournaments paid by the member represents a "Platform Fee" to Bountie made solely for facilities provided by the Site for the purpose of setting up and managing all pay-to-enter tournaments. By participating in a pay-to-enter tournament and paying this fee to Bountie, each member acknowledges that these funds are held by Bountie for such Services and that the member grants an irrevocable authority to Bountie to pay the winner of the pay-to-enter tournament the prize associated with such pay-to-enter tournament.

    4. Members should also be aware that the total entry fees paid by members in any given pay-to-enter tournament are not paid out as prizes, as Bountie retains part of the entry fee as a service fee on all pay-to-enter tournaments played. This fee allows for the continued operation and maintenance of the Site and the development of additional features and content for the Site in the future. The cash prizes in each tournament represent an amount determined by Bountie in its absolute discretion and is subject to change without further notice to you.

      Please refer to the following guidelines for possible disputes:

      1. Tournament Result Dispute

        Any and all tournament evidence must be sent to support within two (2) hours of the scheduled challenge start time. This two (2) hour review period will be used by site administrators to examine challenge evidence and to assign the win to the appropriate user. Any dispute that is filed without evidence will be considered invalid. If only one party submits evidence during this two (2) hour time frame, the user that provides the evidence will be deemed the winner of the tournament, while the opposing user will receive a loss. If no evidence has been reported by either party within the two (2) hour time frame the tournament will be either cancelled or marked as incomplete. Once a tournament has been cancelled and marked incomplete, the results are irreversible and cannot be adjusted. The Bountie Customer Engagement team has the sole discretion to ask users to provide additional evidence in order to determine the accurate winner. After thirty-six (36) hours all tournament results will be final with no undoing, cancelling, or re-assigning winners.

      2. Unresolved Tournament

        If a winner cannot be established from an investigation by the Bountie Customer Support team, then the challenge will be cancelled.

      3. Claiming an illegal win

        If a user claims a "win" in a tournament that was either; not played, not completed, drawn or lost, an automatic forfeit and suspension will be issued, following on the suspension guidelines listed above.

      4. Submitting false evidence

        If a user submits "false evidence"; evidence that has previously been submitted or archived from a previous tournament, evidence that has been altered in any way, or false evidence that has been created, then that user will automatically forfeit the challenge and immediately face a suspension, based on the suspension guidelines listed above.

      5. Abusive behaviour on platform

        Any abusive, obscene, lewd, threatening or insulting behaviour by a user towards Bountie Support staff or other players on the Site will result in their immediate suspension for an indefinite period of time as determined by Bountie Support staff.

      6. Cheating

        Any users who are caught cheating/boosting their statistics in any tournament on Bountie will be suspended, based on the suspension guidelines listed above. If cheating or boosting of records occurs during any bracket, leaderboard, or any other style tournament, the user will be immediately disqualified with no entry fee reimbursement.

      7. Lagging and IP Booting

        Users who are caught lagging/IP booting tournaments will face an automatic loss and suspension. The suspension penalty will follow the suspension guidelines listed above. When disputing a lagging tournament, video evidence of the lag is required in order for your dispute to be validated. You must be able to provide video evidence that clearly identifies the exit of the tournament. When playing a tournament with a poor connectivity level, be sure to quit before either you or your opponent gain a significant advantage in the tournament. When a user disconnects from a tournament while their opponent has a significant advantage, the user who disconnected will receive an automatic loss. If the tournament is played and completed in its entirety, the results of the tournament will stand. The Bountie Customer Support team has the sole discretion to adjust end tournament results at any time.

    5. Bountie reserves the right to terminate Your User Account, limit or prohibit Your participation in any Match, Game or Tournament. If applicable, all charged monies (deposits), less fees and withdrawals, will be returned to You. All Prizes (if any) may be voided at the sole discretion of Bountie.
