Policies

Where their Code of Conduct acts as a general guide for how to behave, their Account, Chat, and Cheating policies dig deeper into the specifics of the rules on Replay Poker. Read them below:

Account Policy

In order to help keep things friendly and fair around here, there are certain account policies that every player must follow:

Age Restrictions

Replay Poker is an adult site intended for players age 18 and over. Replay Poker allows players ages 13-17 to create an account with the consent of a legal guardian who must read and agree to our Terms of Service. Players under the age of 13 are not allowed on their site.

Multiple Accounts & Sharing

Two simple rules:

  • You may only have one Replay Poker account.
  • No sharing accounts – you, and only you, can use your Replay Poker account.
Usernames

Usernames must NOT contain:

  • Swear words
  • Sexual references
  • Racial, ethnic, or religious slurs
  • References to political or religious figures
  • Inappropriate references to body parts or bodily functions
  • Alternative spellings of any of the above
  • Just about anything found on Urban Dictionary
Avatars

Profile images must NOT contain:

  • Inappropriate references to body parts or bodily functions
  • References to conflicts with players and/or moderators

Chat & Message Policy

Replay Poker does not want anyone to feel uncomfortable, offended, threatened, or unsafe when they sit down at a table. To this end, Replay Poker has certain rules and expectations for what is acceptable and not acceptable in the table chat, lobby chat, and personal messaging. Positivity, praise, and encouragement are always welcome, but DO NOT do any of the following:

  • Swear at other players or deliberately evade the swear filter.
  • Name call, tease, or mock. We’re all people, we all have feelings.
  • Use racial, ethnic, or religious slurs of any kind.
  • Participate in sexual harassment, or unwanted sexual advances.
  • Spam, solicit, or advertise.
  • Intentionally annoy and/or provoke people.
  • Flood the chat box with large amounts of text.
  • Shout at other players in all caps.

Please consider that the poker table is not an appropriate venue for political or religious comments. These are highly emotional topics and there are other places better suited for these kinds of conversations.

It’s important to note that Replay Poker is an international site and they have players from all over the world. They do not discriminate against players who use languages other than English in the chats, but the same rules and penalties apply to all languages.

Cheating Policy

Nobody likes a cheater, especially on a poker site. Replay Poker is committed to offering all players a fair and competitive hand of poker, so we absolutely DO NOT tolerate the following:

  • Collusion – a situation in which you and other players work together, either by sharing knowledge or other means, to gain an unfair advantage.
  • Chip dumping – a situation in which you lose a hand intentionally to another player in order to transfer chips, and vice versa.

In order to prevent cheating, Replay Poker doesn’t allow players from the same household (or anyone sharing the same IP address) to play in the same ring game, or tournaments with 10 or less players registered.)

Penalties

Of course we hope that everyone on the site will read and follow the policies Replay Poker has in place, but unfortunately this is not always the case. Replay Poker takes every situation into careful consideration and uses their best judgement before taking action on an account. If you break the rules, you can expect the following to happen:

Multiple Account Violations

If they find that you are managing multiple accounts on Replay Poker, the additional accounts will be closed and the chips forfeited.

Username Violations

If your username violates their policy, they will update your username to something more appropriate and you will have to contact Replay Poker in order to change it.

Avatar Violations

A polite warning will be sent and the avatar will be updated to something more appropriate until you change it yourself. After a second violation your avatar will be removed and locked so you can no longer change it.

Chat & Message Violations

Since game chats and personal messages are the main channels where players can communicate with one another, Replay Poker takes their chat rules very seriously. Depending on the nature and circumstances of the offense, you may be given a warning or your account may be muted from periods ranging from one day all the way up to one month. Your account may also be muted permanently if we determine that is the best course of action. Time between offenses is always a consideration and penalties are adjusted depending on each individual situation.

Cheating Violations

Replay Poker does not tolerate any form of cheating. The Replay Poker Security & Collusion Team actively monitors the site for collusion and chip dumping. If guilt is proven, beyond reasonable doubt,  the team will assess the severity of the offense and decide whether to issue a warning or temporarily/permanently suspend any accounts involved. All chips related to the the cheating will be immediately confiscated by Replay Poker.

Major Violations

Depending on the severity of the violation, your account may be temporarily or permanently suspended based solely on our judgement. The things that cause us great distress include:

  • Hate speech, bigotry, racism
  • Sexual harassment
  • Threats of violence
  • Gratuitous negativity
  • Hacking or other actions that undermine the integrity of the site
  • Aggressive harassment of staff members and/or moderators
  • Posting malicious links
  • Cheating in any shape or form
  • Repeated violations of any of our policies

Appealing a Decision

Replay Poker strives to put their community first. If you feel you were wrongly penalized, you can appeal the decision by contacting the Replay Poker staff at support@replaypoker.com and explaining your side of the story.

Bottom Line

The bottom line is Replay Poker is a fun and safe environment for everyone. While playing on Replay Poker, you will encounter thousands of other players who share different experiences and come from vastly different backgrounds. While certain language and images may not be offensive to you, consider the fact that that same language and images may have a completely different effect on someone else. Replay Poker has done everything to create a great environment – now it’s up to you!
