    7. If Vicbet management suspects that a Vicbet customer is part of a syndicate or otherwise using their Vicbet customer account primarily to abuse Vicbet promotions or promotional products, Vicbet management may, prior to allowing any funds to be withdrawn by that customer, request evidence to support the fact that the relevant customer account was solely used and funded by the customer and that there was no interaction with a third-party at any time in connection with the opening and/or funding of the customer account or the placement of any relevant transactions.
    8. If there is no specific date given for when bonus bets expire from a specific promotion, the overarching ruling will be that bonus bets expire 30 days after they are redeemed.
