balance change if they are looking at US

to monthly FX rate change. For example, from
Jan to Feb, the dollar went up relative to

have seen an error of $0.01 on movement of
funds to and from the cage. Why?
you have an account based in a currency
other than US Dollars, your funds are
converted at a fixed exchange rate.
This requires use of fractions and may
result in a rounding error of 1
cent. Depending on the amount you
transfer, and the exchange rate in force,
you may see this error work in your favor,
or against you. Over the long run,
this evens out.

purchase limits of $500/day, $1000/week, and
$1500/month on all new players. This

the customer requests a payment through the
client- if they have a debit card
payment is automatically made to that card,
if they have more than one debit card it is
unclear, at the moment, which one is used (Tommy
Cooper is trying to find out).
If they do not have a debit card an e-mail
is generated and our staff make the payment
manually, using the following criteria - If
they have a credit card it will be made to
that card (we cannot pay to Mastercard
though), with more than 1 credit card
registered we e-mail them asking which card
they would like to use. If they have no
cards registered we would e-mail them asking
which method they would prefer, telegraphic
transfer (£15 charge), or cheque (sterling
- free, US$ - free, Euro - to Ireland is
free, to the rest of Europe is £50
equivalent. So much for a common currency).
