      Section: 5:5-175: Credits to exchange wagering accounts.

          
8. a. Credits to an exchange wagering account shall be made as follows:

(1) The exchange wagering account holder's deposits to the exchange wagering account shall be submitted by the exchange wagering account holder to the exchange wagering licensee and shall be in the form of one of the following:

(a) cash given to the exchange wagering licensee;

(b) check, money order, negotiable order of withdrawal, or wire or electronic transfer, payable and remitted to the exchange wagering licensee; or

(c) charges made to an exchange wagering account holder's debit or credit card upon the exchange wagering account holder's direct and personal instruction, which instruction may be given by telephone communication or other electronic means to the exchange wagering licensee or its agent by the exchange wagering account holder if the use of the card has been approved by the exchange wagering licensee.

(2) Credit for winnings from wagers placed with funds in an exchange wagering account shall be posted to the exchange wagering account by the exchange wagering licensee.

(3) The exchange wagering licensee shall have the right to refuse for any reason all or part of any exchange wager or deposit to the exchange wagering account.

(4) Funds deposited in the exchange wagering account shall not bear interest to the exchange wagering account holder.

b. Debits to an exchange wagering account shall be made as follows:

(1) Upon receipt by the exchange wagering licensee of an exchange wager properly placed pursuant to section 9 of this act, P.L.2011, c.15 (C.5:5-176), the exchange wagering licensee shall determine whether there are sufficient funds in the exchange wagering account holder's exchange wagering account to cover the total liability resulting from the exchange wager, taking into consideration other exchange wagers made by the exchange wagering account holder in the same market, and any additional applicable transaction or other fees due to the exchange wagering licensee under the commission's rules and regulations, and deduct such amounts from the exchange wagering account holder's exchange wagering account. Following the matching of the exchange wager to an identically opposing wager or wagers, and determination of the outcome of the horse race or races on which the exchange wagers were placed by two or more exchange wagering account holders, the amounts due shall be paid accordingly to the exchange wagering account of the exchange wagering account holder who won the wager, and any applicable transaction or other fees on the exchange wagering accounts shall be additionally deducted and retained by the exchange wagering licensee for use and distribution pursuant to the commission's rules and regulations.

(2) The exchange wagering licensee may authorize a withdrawal from an exchange wagering account when the exchange wagering account holder submits to the exchange wagering licensee, the exchange wagering licensee's agent, or such other entity as may be approved by the commission, his or her exchange wagering account number and proper means of identification pursuant to procedures approved by the commission. Exchange wagering account holders may request a withdrawal in person, by mail, by telephone, or by other electronic means. If there are sufficient funds in the exchange wagering account to cover the withdrawal, after taking into consideration any existing exchange wagers made by the exchange wagering account holder, the exchange wagering licensee shall make payment within three business days of receipt of the exchange wagering account holder's withdrawal request. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the exchange wagering licensee may decline or delay fulfilling a withdrawal request if the exchange wagering licensee reasonably suspects: (a) fraud; (b) that the exchange wagering account holder was ineligible to make one or more of the exchange wagers made from the exchange wagering account; or (c) any other conditions which the commission may prescribe or approve. At the discretion of the exchange wagering licensee, withdrawals may be payable in cash, by a check sent to the exchange wagering account holder's verified residence address, by wire transfer, or by other electronic transfer. Withdrawals shall be made payable only to the holder of the exchange wagering account and in no more than the amount of the requested withdrawal.

L.2011, c.15, s.8.
