You should contact the app store provider directly if you have any payment related issues with in-app purchases.

We will always try to provide you a reasonable amount of notice of the anticipated Sunset Date for a game, whether this notice occurs as an in-game pop-up and/or official announcement by Miniclip on the relevant support page for the game or Miniclip’s social media channels. Where the game is available on the Facebook platform, we will announce the Sunset Date on the game’s Facebook community page. Any announcement will explain the impending closure of the game on the Sunset Date and urge all players to stop making any in-game purchases.

Like many of our peers in the mobile games industry, we use bots in our games in certain circumstances. The majority of the games offered by Miniclip are real-time multiplayer games. As is standard for such games, bots may be used if there are no real-live players available, in instances of low connectivity or in the event of other technical constraints so that we can ensure smooth and enjoyable gameplay for our users. Further, there may be a use of bots for first-time players to ensure the best introduction to our game offering.
Please read these terms and conditions ("Virtual Items Terms") carefully before purchasing any virtual items, benefits, upgrades, unlockables, cosmetics, skins, gameplay features or coins, cash, tokens or other in-game currency ("Coins"), in each case, available through or otherwise in relation to our Services (together "Virtual Items"). By directly or indirectly (such as through Subscriptions) purchasing any Virtual Items, you agree to be bound by these Virtual Items Terms and the Terms. These Virtual Items Terms are in addition to the Terms and if there is a conflict between the Virtual Items Terms and the Terms, the Virtual Items Terms shall apply.
These Virtual Items Terms cover your purchase and use of Virtual Items. Please be aware that a number of our Services have more than one type of in-game currency. If this is the case, there will be different items which can be purchased with each type of in-game currency, and each may be acquired in different ways.
Coins and items can only be used in line with these Virtual Items Terms and within the game account in which they are purchased or otherwise acquired. You acknowledge that certain additional in-game functionality may only be accessible in exchange for Coins.
These Virtual Items Terms also apply if you win or are given any Virtual Items because you have participated in a gameplay feature, competition, survey or marketing campaign.
Some of our games let you buy Virtual Items. You can recognise these games because they have an option to purchase Virtual Items, either in an in-game shop or, in the case of Coins, usually at the top of the specific game playing window. Games may allow you to buy different amounts of Virtual Items and may have temporary offers or sales for Virtual Item purchases.
Please note that when purchasing Virtual Items through one of our games, which you have downloaded from an app store, there may be additional terms and conditions which apply. You may be asked to agree to the app store provider's own terms and conditions, which will apply in addition to these Virtual Items Terms. We suggest you read app store terms carefully and follow the process provided by the relevant app store.
We do not permit third parties to give or sell Coins and other Virtual Items outside of our games. Accordingly, as a condition to playing our games, you agree not to receive, purchase and/or use Coins or Virtual Items from such third parties. Any unauthorised Coins or Virtual Items that you purchase are subject to forfeiture at any time.
You can buy Virtual Items from us for real money if you are 18 years of age or older or, if you are under 18, have the permission of a parent or guardian. We may ask you to provide the details of your parent or guardian from time to time.
If you want to buy any Virtual Items, please follow the steps set out in the game which you have downloaded. If you experience any difficulties when purchasing Virtual Items, you can contact us here.
Please note the following:
Generally, no. The app and website accounts are not always linked, but in some cases, such as for 8 Ball Pool, the Coin wallets are linked. However, for some games there is no link, and if you purchase Virtual Items through one platform account, they will not appear in other platform accounts you may have with us.
You can spend your Coins in order to acquire other Virtual Items within the game within which you purchased the Coins. When you use Coins to acquire another Virtual Item within a game, the relevant amount of Coins will automatically be deducted from your account that is connected with that game.
Other than Coins, the nature and duration of any Virtual Items will vary between and within our games. Some Virtual Items may only be used a limited number of times or only whilst you satisfy certain conditions within the relevant game.
We can at any time, without notifying you, vary the scope, variety and type of Virtual Items. Miniclip has no obligation to make, or continue to make, any specific Virtual Item for any game. We may also restrict or vary the type of Virtual Items available to you based on your country of residence.
By buying Virtual Items, you agree not to:
Although users are not restricted from holding more than one account, it is strictly prohibited to use multiple accounts to hold and use Virtual Items in any manner that is contrary to the general purpose of a game. It is strictly prohibited to give, sell or otherwise transfer an account or any Virtual Items to any person.
We may from time to time limit the use of Virtual Items, including applying limits to the number of Virtual Items allocated to your account at any time, and/or the number of Virtual Items usable or redeemable within a given time period.
When you buy Virtual Items, you are buying a limited personal revocable licence to use the Virtual Items. You agree that the Virtual Items do not constitute personal property and Coins are not legal tender or currency of any kind. All Virtual Items purchased by you are non-refundable. No interest is paid or earned on any Coins balance.
Miniclip is entitled to expire, withdraw, replace, restrict or otherwise change any Virtual Item at any time.
You have certain rights in respect of the Virtual Items. These include that we have the right to supply the Virtual Items to you and that the Virtual Items will be of satisfactory quality and as described.
You have certain legal remedies if we breach any of these rights. Nothing in these Virtual Items Terms is intended to affect these legal rights or other rights to which you may also be entitled.
If we are unable to resolve any disputes between us about your purchase of the Virtual Items or these Virtual Items Terms, you have the right to refer the dispute to the EU's Online Dispute Resolution platform at https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/main/index.cfm?event=main.home.chooseLanguage.
By purchasing Virtual Items from us, you agree that we can transfer them to your account as soon as we can. By agreeing to these terms, each time you click to confirm a purchase, you acknowledge that you expressly consent to the supply of the Virtual Items immediately and acknowledge that you will lose your right to change your mind and cancel such order within the 14-day cooling-off period otherwise provided by law.
We reserve the right to temporarily or permanently ban your account if:
If we temporarily or permanently ban your account, we may remove any or all of the Virtual Items in your account. If this happens, you are not entitled to any reimbursement, refund or any other compensation, except at our sole discretion.
It is possible that you have successfully ordered and paid for your Coins, but you may not have received them. Please remember that during busy periods, it can take up to 48 hours before your Virtual Items are assigned to your account. If you are still having issues receiving your Virtual Items and you have not received them after a short period of time, please let us know by contacting us here.
You are responsible for the security of your account and ensuring that no unauthorised purchases occur on your account. Miniclip is not liable for any unauthorised purchases (including fraudulent purchases or purchases made by minors). If you wish to pursue a refund for such purchases, you should contact your bank or the payment provider such as the relevant app store.
We are not responsible for the following types of loss or damage which may arise (and have no obligation to refund for any purchase of Virtual Items):
Purchases of Virtual Items made within Facebook's Messenger application are subject solely to Facebook's terms and conditions of purchase. Accordingly, we will be unable to help with your queries here which should be directed to Facebook.
Some of our Services provide you with the opportunity to purchase a Subscription for access to fixed or dynamic content, premium content and/or Virtual Items on an ongoing basis. Subscriptions may be available at different fees and for different periods of time (the "Subscription Period") as specified in the Services at the point of purchase. These Subscription Terms and Conditions apply to all such purchases of Subscriptions.
Subscriptions are automatic regular payments that continue for the Subscription Period until cancelled.
Subscription fees are charged automatically on or before the beginning of each Subscription Period. Apple's App Store, Google's Google Play or Amazon platform may place a temporary "authorisation hold" or "pending charge" on your payment card before any payment is due (including during a free trial period). Please see the section below "Why has my payment card been charged before payment is due?" for further details.
A Subscription is automatically renewed at the end of each Subscription Period unless you cancel it at least 24 hours before the expiry of the current Subscription Period. If you do not cancel the Subscription at least 24 hours before the expiry of the current Subscription Period, the Subscription fees for the next Subscription Period will be taken during the 24 hours before the expiry of the current Subscription Period.
If a Subscription fee cannot be taken due to the absence of monetary funds, invalidity of credit card or for any other reasons, the Subscription will not automatically end. The Subscription will automatically restart as soon as valid payment details are provided. Cancellation of a Subscription can only be done at your manual request. Please see the section below "How can I cancel a Subscription" for further details.
Some of our Subscriptions offer a trial period which is free of charge for a certain period of time that is specified in the Services. At the end of such trial period, the Subscription will automatically convert into a paid Subscription for the fees and for the Subscription Period set out in the Services at the time of activation of the trial period. If you do not cancel the Subscription within the trial period therefore, the first Subscription fee will be immediately and automatically charged when the trial period expires.
Please note that any paid Subscription begins immediately from the activation of such paid Subscription and not after the expiry of any trial period. Any unused trial period will therefore be forfeited if a Subscription is activated prior to the expiry of such trial period.
Unless otherwise stated, each trial period offer may only be used once on an account. We are entitled to temporarily or permanently ban any account that abuse free trial periods (including, without limitation, any user activating multiple trial periods on the same account).
You cannot cancel your Subscription for the current Subscription Period as that is activated as soon as you purchase a Subscription. However, you may cancel your Subscription for the next Subscription Period following the steps set out below.
You can manage and cancel your subscriptions at any time in the Account Settings of your device. For iOS subscriptions, please see Apple's support page here. For Google Play subscriptions, please see Google Play's support page here. For Amazon subscriptions, please see Amazon's support page here.
You will immediately stop receiving any benefits such as "VIP access" that your Subscription provided including any regular free Virtual Items. You will also lose access to any Virtual Items that is only available for Subscribers.
No. Except where required by law or at our sole discretion, paid Subscription fees are non-refundable.
We may modify the Subscription fee at our sole discretion and at any time. Any Subscription Fee change will become effective at the end of the current Subscription period. You will be provided reasonable prior notice of any change in Subscription fee. If you disagree with the change in Subscription fee, you may cancel your Subscription for the next Subscription Period following the steps set out in the section "How can I cancel a Subscription?".
Yes, we may modify the rewards and perks of each Subscription in our Services at our sole discretion.
We use different types of advertising in our Services. When you purchase a Subscription that states that advertising is removed from a particular Service, it will not remove advertising that you choose to display. This includes rewarded video advertising which is only shown when you select the option to display it.
All payment, billing and transaction processes are handled by the relevant third-party distributor or platform such as Apple's App Store or Google's Google Play. However, we understand that these platforms may place a temporary "authorisation hold" or "pending charge" on your payment card before any payment is due (including during a free trial period). This is an action outside of Miniclip's control for the purposes of preventing credit card fraud but we understand no payment is actually taken from you until the 24 period prior to the commencement of a paid subscription period.
All payment, billing and transaction processes are handled by the relevant third-party distributor or platform such as Apple's App Store, Google's Google Play or Amazon. If you have any payment related issues, then you need to contact such distributors directly. For any other issues, please contact us here.
