The outcome of a challenge, competition or tournament is determined directly by the users participating, GoNow Gaming has no knowledge of the skill levels of any user participating and/or the probability of one user winning vs. another user.
Prizes are generally cash amounts. Any prize will be presented before a competition commences. If any competitions or tournaments are to close or end unexpectedly or prematurely, the outcome of said competition or tournament will be determined by the Site upon review. All cash entry competitions or tournaments will have deducted a service fee that is to be retained by the Site. This fee is the website management fee and will be charged at 10% of the overall entry fee for all users participating, unless otherwise stated.

Evidence for disputes must be provided within four (4) hours of the dispute being activated on the Site; any case that is not supported with evidence will have the result determined by GoNow Gaming Ltd. within a minimum of 48 hours of a dispute being raised. If evidence is provided and the dispute is successfully actioned by both parties (users) GoNow Gaming will resolve the dispute within a minimum 48 hours. If only one party provides evidence for the dispute within the four (4) hour period, then the result may be deemed successful in that party’s favour, and the user who does not submit evidence will automatically be deemed the losing party. All winnings will be credited to the user who is successful in the dispute. If a competition ends and there is no winner or loser declared, the competition prize will be split between the two parties involved. Results determined by GoNow Gaming are final. GoNow Gaming reserves the right to request supporting evidence for any competition to assist and to resolve the outcome of any disputes/competitions.
GoNow Gaming will endeavour to resolve disputes within a minimum 48 hours of a dispute taking place. If for whatever reason a winner cannot be determined, user entry fees will be refunded to their accounts, less the GoNow Gaming service charge.
Claiming a false Win: If a user claims a “Win” in a competition, match, or challenge that was not played, not completed, drawn, or lost, then the user will serve an automatic forfeit and suspension will be issued appropriately, as per the suspension guideline above.
Submitting false/tampered evidence: If a user submits “False or Tampered evidence”, such as evidence which has previously been submitted and/or archived from a previous competition, match, or challenge, evidence that has been altered or changed in any way, or evidence that has been falsely created, then the user who submits such evidence will automatically forfeit the match, and immediately face a suspension as per the suspension guideline listed above.
Abusive Language and Behaviour: Any abusive, racist, sexist, obscene, threatening, or insulting language and/or behaviour from a user directed at other users, GoNow Gaming staff, or indirectly uploaded to the GoNow Gaming Site, will result in their immediate suspension for a period of time deemed appropriate by GoNow Gaming.
Cheating: Any user who is caught cheating or boosting on the Site, or is deemed to be cheating or boosting their gameplay before, during, or after any competition, match, or challenge, will be suspended from GoNow Gaming for a length of time deemed appropriate by GoNow Gaming. Cheating will not be tolerated.
Lagging and IP Booting: Users who are caught purposely lagging and/or IP Booting competitions, matches, or challenges, or deemed to be by GoNow Gaming, will face an automatic loss in that competition, match, or challenge, and may face suspension. The suspension length will be determined by GoNow Gaming. Photographic and/or video evidence MUST be provided for any disputes directly related to a lagging/ IP Booted competition, match, or challenge. Photographic and /or Video evidence MUST clearly identify the exit of the match. When playing a competition, match, or challenge with poor connectivity, users should leave the game before their opponent has a distinct advantage in the match. When a user disconnects from a match in which their opponent has a significant advantage, provided the user who had the advantage can provide evidence of such an advantage, the user who disconnected will automatically receive a loss. If the match is played and completed in its entirety, throughout the lagging, the results of the match will stand. GoNow Gaming has the sole discretion to determine the result of any match after studying dispute evidence.
You agree to use GoNow Gaming as the medium to host all of your challenges and communications between yourself, other users, and the GoNow Gaming team. Creating a challenge means you have publicly acknowledged that you wish to compete with another user, and any other registered, active user is able to accept the open challenge.
GoNow Gaming will not accept any challenges directed towards it; GoNow Gaming Ltd. is not a registered user, only individuals who are registered users can compete in competitions and challenge one another.
All challenges must comply with the Terms and Conditions of GoNow Gaming. Any challenge created that GoNow Gaming believes to be in breach of these Terms and Conditions, may be removed from the Site. GoNow Gaming reserves the right to terminate any activity that does not comply with the Terms and Conditions agreed upon by a registered user.
Any information or activity included within a challenge or competition is the responsibility of the user who posted that particular challenge or competition. Any user who accepts a challenge is thereby accepting the entirety of the challenge or competition, and therefore agrees to its contained terms.
GoNow Gaming is not responsible for any incorrect information input into the Site by any user. It is your responsibility to ensure all information is correct and true before submitting the information on to the Site. GoNow Gaming is not liable for incorrect entries made by you on the Site, including data input errors.
Any competition or challenge submitted for acceptance by you the user, is open for acceptance until removed by you the user, or removed by GoNow Gaming for violation of the terms and conditions of the Site.
Once a challenge or competition or tournament is accepted, and two users are in agreement in respect of said challenge or competition, the agreed credit will be deducted from each user’s accounts and held with GoNow Gaming until a winner is announced. The GoNow Gaming service charge (10% of the total credit for any challenge or competition – including any VAT) will be deducted from the total amount of any entry fee credit for any challenge or competition. The remaining credit will then be deposited into the winning user’s account. GoNow Gaming reserves the right to deduct a service charge (10% of the total entry fee credit for any challenge or competition - including any VAT) for any challenge or competition. If a challenge or competition is being resolved by Dispute, the credit will be held with GoNow Gaming until a winner is determined. If a winner is not able to be decided, the credit will be split evenly between the two users taking part in that challenge or competition, less the GoNow Gaming service charge (10% of the total entry fee credit for any challenge or competition - including any VAT).
Once a challenge or competition or tournament is created, that challenge, competition or tournament stays live until accepted by another user, or removed either by the original creator or GoNow Gaming. Once a challenge, competition or tournament has been completed, users have up to 30 mins to confirm the result of that challenge or competition, after which GoNow Gaming will determine the result of the challenge or competition. If only one user has input the result of a challenge, competition or tournament, then the remaining user has 30 mins to confirm the result, or else the winnings will be awarded to the user who has confirmed the result. If no users input a result for a challenge or competition the winnings will be split equally between the two users, minus GoNow Gaming service charge (10% of the total entry fee credit for any challenge or competition - including any VAT). If a challenge or competition has been sent to a dispute panel, GoNow Gaming has up to 48 hours to determine the winner of that challenge or competition, and if no winner is determined the winnings will be split equally and deposited in to each user’s wallet, minus the GoNow Gaming service charge (10% of the total entry fee credit for any challenge or competition - including any VAT).
GoNow Gaming reserves the right to determine when the Site is open and active for users to create a challenge or competition, and can close the Site at its discretion at any time.
You must have funds in your account in order to take part in challenges, competitions or tournaments. You can deposit funds into your account using the methods provided by GoNow Gaming, or you can use any funds deposited in to your account by GoNow Gaming in relation to promotions and/or prizes. Credit will be credited to your account upon receipt of funds, and GoNow Gaming reserves the right to apply and/or change Maximum and Minimum restrictions to your account according to the history and operation of your account, deposit methods, and discretion of the Site.
Any payment used to deposit funds in to your GoNow Gaming account must belong to you the user and you must be the named account holder of the account from which such payment was made. GoNow Gaming reserves the right to require you to produce confirmation or validation of any or all deposits made to your GoNow Gaming account. You understand that this may be used by GoNow Gaming as evidence of your account deposits in the case of a dispute.
Any attempt to defraud the Site, GoNow Gaming, and/or any user on the Site through the use of Credit Card, Debit Card, PayPal, or any other method of payment, or failure to cooperate with GoNow Gaming requesting confirmation or validation of payments and/or deposits, will result in the immediate termination of your account, and the loss of any prizes that you are entitled to, regardless of the outcome. It may also result in active pursuit of civil litigation and/or referral for criminal prosecution.
Once a user creates a cash entry challenge, competition or tournament, and confirms all details are correct, the appropriate funds are immediately deducted from the user’s account balance and held securely until a winner is decided. Once the challenge is accepted by a second user, the appropriate funds are then deducted from their account balance and added in to the pending wallet for that challenge or competition. The challenge or competition pending balance is then subject to the GoNow Gaming service charge (10% of the total entry fee credit for any challenge or competition - including any VAT). When registering an account with GoNow Gaming you acknowledge such service charges are reasonable, and irrevocable unless otherwise stated by GoNow Gaming. Service charges are applied for the setting up of challenges or competitions, management of cash entry challenges or competitions, and the provision of facilities to users to participate in such challenges or competitions. The remaining balance, once GoNow Gaming has deducted the service charge (10% of the total entry fee credit for any challenge or competition - including any VAT) of each challenge or competition, being held in pending, will then be awarded to the winner of said challenge or competition.
This service charge allows for the continued operation and maintenance of the Site and the upgrade and/or development of additional features and content for the Site moving forward.
The prize for any challenge or competition is currently 90% of all entry fees paid to enter the challenge or competition. This percentage is subject to change at the sole discretion of GoNow Gaming at any time. All users must pay an equal entrance fee for any challenge or competition.
Provided that the user is not in breach of these Terms and Conditions they may request a withdrawal of funds from their available account balance in their account at any time. Account holders with pending deposits must wait until those funds clear before attempting to make a withdrawal. Withdrawal will be suspended and/or terminated on any account that is suspected of fraudulent activity, in the interest of security.
Withdrawals may be subject to a withdrawal fee; to be deducted upon withdrawal.
Withdrawal of funds will be based on how you have deposited funds into your account in the past. If you have previously deposited via Credit Card, Debit Card, PayPal or other means, your card(s) and/or account will be refunded in the amount of and order by which previous charges have been made within 60 days of such request being made.
