You can request your account history on our support portal
    2. Self-Exclusion. A self-exclusion is a longer pause, but we take additional measures to ensure that you avoid gameplay.
      1. You can exclude yourself from a “Defined” or an “Indefinite” period of time.
        1. “Defined” periods are: 1 month, 2 months, 3 months,6 months, one year, three years, five years. If you self-exclude yourself for a defined period, you won’t be able to use the Fun Zone in any way until the period is over.
        2. An “Indefinite” self-exclusion lasts a minimum of six months. Once the six months have passed, you may reactivate your account at any time, but you must wait seven days after reactivation to play on your account.

  3. What You Need to Know About Responsible Gameplay
    1. How does gameplay work?
      1. Random chance: every time you play a game, the outcome is largely determined by chance. You cannot predict a particular outcome. You also cannot determine a particular outcome by looking at past results, as each outcome is independent of prior outcomes.
      2. Return to Player (RTP): This is a calculation of how much of the Nile Tokens (Standard Play) and Nile Sweeps Coins (Promotional Play) you’ll get back over time, in the long run. The amount that you get back in the short term, however, may differ from the RTP.
      3. Edge: All Standard Play and Promotional Play Games on the Fun Zone have a slight advantage that favors in the long run.
    2. What are some misconceptions about these games?
      1. Players are never “due for a win.” An outcome is random, and is not affected by past results.
      2. “The longer I play, the more chance I’ll win.” The amount of time that you spend on playing the games have no impact on your chances of winning. All outcomes are random.
