      C. Streaming conditions

    6. As part of the promotion, you will be receiving an established amount of rakeback (the “rewards”) in proportion to how many hours you stream your gaming activity (in accordance with the conditions hereunder), and how many of those hours are subsequently watched by third parties.

    7. Eligibility for rewards is calculated every calendar month (between the first day and last day of every calendar month).

    8. In order to qualify for the rewards, you must, for any given calendar month, at least reach one of the established brackets of streaming hours (which must in turn consist of a minimum number of hours streaming yourself playing on at least one poker table within the company’s gaming client, as well as a minimum number of hours streaming yourself playing on only poker tables within the company’s gaming client); and also at least reach the respective threshold of streamed hours watched by third parties (“watch time”) in relation to the particular level of the promotion.


      The above table shows the minimum stream-time and watch-time requirements, per streamR level.
      Provided that if you have registered two accounts as per section 11A, the aggregate streaming activity across both accounts will be eligible for the promotion, subject to the provisions of these Terms and Conditions.

    9. For the avoidance of any doubt and without prejudice to any other provision within these Terms and Conditions, a “streaming session” is defined as commencing on the moment that you start filming yourself and/or digitally recording and/or capturing the activity you conduct on your computer or other device, and terminating on the moment that you stop such filming and/or digital recording and/or capturing.

    10. When streaming yourself playing on at least one poker table within the company’s gaming client, you may, at the same time and within the same streaming session, stream yourself playing on other gaming platforms not belonging to the company. However, when streaming yourself playing on only poker tables within the company’s gaming client, you shall not, at the same time within that streaming session, feature, mention or cause to be made visible in any way, directly or indirectly, any other gaming platforms not belonging to the company.

    11. A streaming session or any part thereof shall not be considered as being eligible for the promotion if it does not feature both a live-streamed video showing yourself as well as a simultaneous live digital recording and/or capture of the activity you conduct on your computer or other device, and in particular, your relevant gaming activity in accordance with the last preceding provision (jointly referred to as the “streaming elements”). For the avoidance of any doubt, both these streaming elements need to be captured and streamed concurrently via the selected third-party website/s in order to be considered as eligible for the promotion.

      Provided that the live-streamed video showing yourself must clearly show your face and consist of both video and audio output, and that such audio output shall consist, in its majority, of a live and concurrent narration, discussion, description, reflection or commentary on the relevant gaming activity being carried out.

    12. In addition, and without prejudice to any other provision within these Terms and Conditions, a streaming session or any part thereof shall not be constituted as being eligible for the promotion if it does not also feature, within the digital/recording and/or capture of the activity you conduct on your computer or other device, a clear, static, unchanging display of at least one (1) promotional element which the company shall make available to you for the purposes of the promotion. You shall take any and all reasonable steps to ensure that any graphics and/or text within the promotional element are clearly visible and legible, and that no portion thereof is hidden or otherwise obstructed throughout the eligible streaming session or part thereof.

    13. You shall ensure that a full, unedited, total and complete recording of your live streaming session will be automatically made available and accessible to the public on the same third-party website used for the live streaming session and registered with the company as per Section 11A, shortly after the live streaming session ends, and in any case, not longer than twenty-four hours later.

      D. Self-Reporting

    14. Without prejudice to any other provision within these Terms and Conditions, no streaming session or any part thereof which is not self-reported by you to the company will be considered as being eligible for the promotion.

    15. You may self-report a streaming session or any part thereof by logging into your specific streamR account page within the company’s website and logging the relevant streaming hours in accordance to their respective category as per section 11C of these Terms and Conditions. You must self-report a streaming session or any part thereof within no later than seven (7) days from the date when such streaming session took place.

    16. In logging your streaming hours as provided in the last preceding provision, you shall be requested to include the following information:
      1. Date of stream
      2. Hours streamed on that date, broken down by each category:
        1. Hours streamed with at least one RIO-P table
        2. Hours streamed with only RIO-P tables

    17. Self-reporting a streaming session or any part thereof shall in no way automatically make it eligible for the promotion. The company reserves the right, at its sole and unlimited discretion, to refuse to consider a self-reported streaming session or any part thereof as eligible for the promotion if it is in breach of these Terms and Conditions or constitutes an improper use of service as outlined in section 8 herein.

    18. By no later than five (5) days after the last day of every calendar month, you shall also be required to submit, via your streamR account page as outlined in section 11.15 an extract taken directly from your third-party website used for your streaming activity, and clearly showing the statistics for your account with such third-party website/s, including your total watch time for that  calendar month.

      E. Determination of Eligibility

    19. The company shall determine the eligibility of all self-reported streaming hours. Eligibility shall be assessed at the company’s sole and unlimited discretion, but based on the following conditions:

      1. Whether the hours streamed qualify for any of the categories provided for in section 11C of these Terms and Conditions. The company reserves the right to recategorise any portion of streaming hours logged if, upon assessment it is found to have been incorrectly categorised by you during Self-Reporting.

      2. Whether the hours streamed fully adhere to the provisions of these Terms and Conditions.

    20. The company shall assess the watch time based on the total account watch time reached by the last day of every respective calendar month. If you have registered two accounts as per section 11A, the company shall assess the aggregate total account watch time for both accounts.

    21. In determining eligibility, the company shall consider whichever is the higher between the total watch time for the respective calendar month or the average watch time obtained by the streamer during the last three preceding months, insofar as these are eligible in accordance with these Terms and Conditions. The streaming level assigned for the respective calendar month and the reward assigned thereto will be dependent on the higher amount determined as aforementioned.

      F. Payment of Rakeback

    22. If the company determines that your total hours streamed and total watch time for a given calendar month make you eligible to qualify for any of the levels as provided in section 11C, you shall be considered as eligible to receive the reward corresponding to the level reached.
    23. In calculating the amount of rakeback due with respect to a particular month of participation in the promotion, the company shall apply the relevant percentage of rewards due for the level reached for the respective calendar month to the amount generated by you in rake, from which the company shall reduce fifty-one percent (51%) (or any other amount applicable at the time) and further reduce any amounts received in bonuses and/or rewards.

    24. You shall receive the corresponding rakeback within fifteen (15) days of the company’s determination of your eligibility as per the last preceding section, by means of the corresponding amount being credited directly to your player account with the company.

    25. The company reserves the right to limit, refuse, delay or overturn the payment of rakeback at its sole discretion if it suspects that the system is being abused or that the promotion is being used improperly, until and for as long as is necessary to investigate such suspicions.

      G. Non-Compete and Company Promotion clauses

    26. Upon reaching Level 2 or any higher Level of the Promotion as outlined in section 11C of these Terms and Conditions, and after having successfully satisfied the requirements relating to such Level/s for two (2) consecutive months and prior to starting the third month thereafter, you shall be requested by the company to consent to Non-Compete and Company Promotion clauses which shall be applicable to you and upon which your continued participation in the promotion will be dependent.

    27. The company shall inform you about the clauses and provide you with a full copy of the text thereof within seven (7) days of commencement of your third month at the Promotion level/s as aforementioned.

    28. You hereby acknowledge and accept that failure by you to consent to the clauses as aforementioned constitutes sufficient cause for the company to terminate your participation in the promotion with immediate effect and without further notice, from the day of its receipt of a notice of your decision, or from your failure to consent thereto within the period specified by the company, according to whichever comes first.

  12. Privacy and Cookie Policy
