("Services" refer to the technological platform and all IT related services provided to You on the Website and include real cash games and non-cash games offered on the Website to registered Users, as well as promotions and tournaments available for registered Users on the Website).

Assam & Orissa
Registration on this Website along with the Services offered on the Website is not available to Users situated in the states of Assam and Orissa. If You are located in the states of Assam and / or Orissa, please do not use or access the Website and / or Services. You will be responsible and liable for any claims, penalty or other liability arising from Your accessing or using the Website and / or Services, under any applicable law, and will indemnify Club Empire against any claims related thereto. In the event You provide false information for the purpose of registration on the Website and/or availing of any Services offered on the Website, Club Empire shall have the right terminate Your membership and also initiate legal proceedings against you for providing such false information for the purpose of registration on the Website and/or availing Services offered on the Website, at its discretion.
The services offered by Club Empire on the Website are exclusive to its network of registered Members and are not open to the public. To avail any of the Services available on the Website, You will need to be a registered Player of the Website. Kindly note that registration of Players on the Website is by invite only. You would be able to register on the Website only if you receive an invite from Club Empire to register on the Website.
You may request for an invite from Club Empire to Register on the Website through either of the following modes:
Expression of Interest: You may express your interest to become a registered Player on the Website by filling in the “Expression of Interest” application form available at https://clubempire.in/user/add_user.
Referrals: Registered Players on the Website would be able to refer new and unregistered Players for the purpose of receiving an invite to register, by sending us their email addresses. Registered Players may send us email addresses of unregistered Users seeking to register on the Website, by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kindly note that the discretion to invite you to register as a member on the Website would rest solely and exclusively with Club Empire.
Once Club Empire has decided to invite an unregistered User to register on the Website, such user would receive an email (via the email address provided at the time of expressing interest or referral as the case maybe) containing a link re-directing him/her to the registration page on the Website. This registration page would prescribe certain criteria and parameters that Club Empire would look at whilst scrutinising the registration form of a User. The User may then fill in the required details on the registration page on the Website. Upon completion, a one-time password (OTP) would be sent to the User’s mobile number entered on the registration form. The User must then enter the OTP on the registration form and submit the registration form.
Club Empire would make a decision on whether to grant registration to the User within 2 days of submission of the registration form. From the time of submission of the registration form till the time Club Empire either accepts or rejects the User as a member of the Website, as the case maybe, the User would be provided temporary and provisional access to his/her account information page on the Website.
The decision to grant registration to a User would be at the discretion of Club Empire and would be final and binding. Registration may be granted only to the satisfaction of Club Empire, pursuant to Club Empire scrutinizing and evaluating the registration form submitted by the User.
Upon a User being granted registration by Club Empire, the User would get a confirmation of the registration via email. Similarly, if a User is denied registration on the Website, such rejection would be communicated to the User via email. Upon the User being denied registration on the Website, such User’s access to his/her account information page on the Website would be revoked.
The registration process elucidated above would suffice for a User to play ‘non-cash games’ / ‘games for fun’ on the Website. However, if a User wishes to play ‘cash games’ on the Website, the User must furnish additional details such as his Permanent Account Number (PAN) along with uploading a copy of his/her PAN card, as may be required on the Website. Club Empire would then review this additional information provided and revert to the User with an approval/disapproval message on whether this verification has been complete. Only upon this additional verification being carried out and approval of the Player by Club Empire, would the Player be permitted by Club Empire to play ‘cash games’ on the Website.
Unique Identification Code (UIC)
Each registered User on the Website would be allotted a UIC upon completion of registration. It would be recorded as to which registered User (along with his/her UIC) has referred another player for registration on the Website. Club Empire may retain records regarding the UIC of each Player, as well as the Player who referred such Player (as the case may be).
User Responsibility and Undertaking
Club Empire may charge each User a service fee in consideration for providing such User with access to the Website, and the use of the Services provided by Club Empire on the Website (“Service Fee”). The Service Fee payable by the User shall be determined on a case to case basis, depending upon the nature of Services being availed by the User at such time.
The ‘Deposit Account’ section on the User Account will indicate the sum of money that a Player has paid as Service Fee. Kindly note that the amount in the Deposit Account of a Player is only indicative of the Service Fee paid by such User, and cannot at any time be withdrawn by a Player. The amount in the Deposit Account can only be used to the purposes of availing various kinds of Services available on the Website.
Each registered User’s User Account on the Website will also consist of the following types of sections:
You may use the money in Your Withdrawal Account for the purpose of availing Services on the Website only if the amount in Your Deposit Account is zero.
Club Empire may, at its sole and absolute discretion, refund the winnings to the Player after deducting applicable taxes, in order to comply with applicable laws.
