GTO allows users to start a betting account and/or link an existing betting account with one or more betting partners through the site. These betting accounts are verified using the processes of the betting partner. GTO provides a platform to facilitate the account creation and authorisation process.
When creating or linking your account to one or more of our betting partners your betting activity is being conducted in accordance with the terms and conditions of the betting partner(s) under their authority as licensed bookmakers through Australian states and territories.
All bets are placed with GTO betting partners using accounts that you either set-up or link to on the site. Your betting activity is conducted in accordance with the terms and conditions of the betting site with which your accounts are held and accessed through GTO.
GTO offers each registered user who has created a betting account with a betting partner, or linked to their own betting account with a betting partner, and agreed to share their betting information, an opportunity to share their bets and related information anonymously on relevant betting pages or via a search, with other people on the GTO and via third party sites authorised by the GTO. When you agree to share your bets, you are providing GTO with permission to display factual data about your betting history placed with betting partners through the GTO, either anonymously or using a unique identifier that you choose in the sign-up process. The betting history data is display to advertise your bet as a Hot Bet, where other users (backers) who view your betting history may choose to bet on the selection(s) contained within your Hot Bet(s). If an advertised bet is backed by another person, GTO will remunerate the person placing the winning Hot Bet (the bettor) by sharing a percentage of the winnings from the winning back bet placed by the backer. Remuneration to bettor is communicated to them as enhanced odds based on the odds that they received from the betting partner with whom the bet was placed through the site. 5% of the odds taken by the backer is remunerated to the bettors of the winning selection. The bettor whose bet has been back bet will receive between 52% to 100% of the enhanced odds created by the back bet depending on the amount the stake they have bet and the time before the race that their bet is placed.
GTO offers each registered user who has created or linked their betting account with a betting partner, and users of third party betting sites, an opportunity to review Hot Bet advertisements and receive the betting information if they commit to betting a minimum staking amount on the selection contained within the Hot Bet. By committing to take the Hot Bet the backer is agreeing to receive the communicated odds from the betting partner available at that time less 5%. After making the commitment to take a Hot Bet the backer must bet at least the minimum stake amount on the selection contained within the Hot Bet or else a minimum charge of $10 may be deducted from their account at the discretion of GTO. This charge represents the cost of this information.
Registered users of the site are able to purchase selections contained within Hot Bets collectively for a bettor as a Tip package. These selections are also referred to as tips. Refer to sections 8 and 9 for terms and conditions relating to buying and selling tips.
Registered users of the site can choose to back bet the tips (take them as Hot Bets) contained within a tip package rather than purchase them. If they choose to back bet selections in a tip package they are required to commit to betting at least four (4) times the tip package price on one or more of the selections. For example if a tip package is sold for $10 and a user chooses to back bet the tip package, the backer is required to bet at least $40 on one or more of the selections contained within the tip package. If they do not uphold this commitment the price of the tip package will be charged to their account.
Account facilities are provided to you solely to enable you to place bets.
If you, for whatever reason, appear to be
depositing or withdrawing money without genuinely betting, we may in our absolute discretion, suspend your Account
for as long as necessary to conduct an appropriate investigation. As a result of our investigation, we may close your
Account and/or make a report to a regulator or other enforcement body.
Your Account must not be used as a banking facility. Deposits into your
account may only be made with the intention of
placing a bet with us or clearing a debt owed to us. Should you make repeated deposits and withdrawals without
commensurate bets being placed, we reserve the right to charge to your Account without prior notice, any bank or other
charges that we have incurred. We may also choose, in our absolute discretion, to close your Account.
Where we have incurred banking transaction fees as a result of your actions
and you have not bet through or turned
over the entire value of your deposit, we will deduct from your Account any bank or other charges that we have incurred
plus an administration fee based on a genuine pre-estimate of our staffing and other costs.
We reserve the right to refuse to accept any type of payment presented
by you to us in our absolute discretion and
without giving reason, irrespective of whether we have previously accepted the same type of payment from you or
would usually accept that payment type from another customer.
This Site offers you the opportunity to start and manage your own tipping competition. In respect of any tipping competition set up on this Site or any other website using the GTO Software ("Tipping Competition"), the person who sets up the Tipping Competition will become the competition manager ("Manager") and will be responsible for the way in which the Tipping Competition is run. On setting up a Tipping Competition, the Manager will be assigned a unique uniform resource locator (or URL) that provides access to a personalised tipping page ("Tipping Page"). The Tipping Page is unique to that Tipping Competition and is the medium through which the Manager and all participants of that Tipping Competition can join, tip, check results and consult with the leader board. Upon joining a Tipping Competition where the Manager has set an entry fee to be paid online, each participant in the Tipping Competition will be required to pay the entry fee for that Tipping Competition, as designated by the Manager ("Payer"). GTO will hold all money provided by each Payer ("Tipping Competition Money") until the conclusion of the Tipping Competition and upon the conclusion of the Tipping Competition, GTO will distribute all Tipping Competition Money to the Tipping Competition winner(s), as determined by the GTO Software and authorised by the Manager. For the avoidance of doubt, GTO holds Tipping Competition Money on behalf of Tipping Competition participants as an agent only. GTO is not responsible for or liable to anyone for distributing Tipping Competition Money as authorised by the relevant Manager. GTO does not warrant that results of a Tipping Competition will always be accurate and GTO takes no responsibility if the results are inaccurate or not available for any reason. Credit card transaction charges are added to the competition fee that competition participants pay online to join a particular competition. The credit card charge amount is displayed on the relevant competition joining page.

GTO may distribute cash prizes to Payers who are designated as Tipping Competition winner(s) by the Manager by way of bank deposit into the competition winner's nominated bank account. Effective distributions of cash prizes by GTO to Tipping Competition participants is therefore dependent on GTO being provided with correct and accurate bank details by the Payer during the claim process. GTO takes no responsibility for non-payment of any prize by GTO to a Tipping Competition winner, including where GTO has been provided with incorrect or invalid bank account details. In the event that the Manager has failed to authorise payment to the Tipping Competition winner(s) ten (10) days after the Competition End Date, GTO will distribute the prize money payable to the Tipping Competition winner(s) by reference to the leader board for that Tipping Competition and such distribution will be deemed to have been authorised by the Manager.
