The player's account will remain closed during that time. Self-exclusion is also available. By triggering this option, users will be locked out of their accounts across all Jumpman Gaming websites for a minimum of six months. During that time, it won't be possible to create new accounts either.

In Summary

The site is clearly aimed at players from the UK, but users from other countries are more than welcome. It's also worth checking out the many bonus offers for new and regular players. Overall, a complete package to chill and enjoy everything Balmy has to offer.
