13. Mandatory Arbitration

PLEASE READ THIS PROVISION OF THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY, IT PROVIDES THAT EITHER YOU OR WE CAN REQUIRE THAT ANY CONTROVERSY OR DISPUTE BE RESOLVED BY BINDING ARBITRATION. ARBITRATION REPLACES THE RIGHT TO GO TO COURT, INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO A JURY AND THE RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION OR SIMILAR PROCEEDING. IN ARBITRATION, A DISPUTE IS RESOLVED BY A NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR INSTEAD OF A JUDGE OR JURY. ARBITRATION PROCEDURES ARE SIMPLER AND MORE LIMITED THAN RULES APPLICABLE IN COURT. IN ARBITRATION, YOU MAY CHOOSE TO HAVE A HEARING AND BE REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL.

Agreement to Arbitrate: You and we agree that either you or we may, without the other's consent, require that any controversy or dispute between you or us (all of which are called "Claims") as described below ("Claims Covered") be submitted to mandatory, binding arbitration. This arbitration provision is made pursuant to a transaction involving interstate commerce, and shall be governed by, and enforceable under, the Federal Arbitration Act ("FAA"), 9 U.S.C. Section 1, et seq. and the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Claims Covered:

  • Claims subject to arbitration include, but are not limited to, disputes relating to Sports Wagering or any other activity conducted on the Sports Wagering Platform; the establishment, terms, treatment, operation, handling, limitations on or termination of your account; any disclosures or other documents or communications relating to your account; any transactions or attempted transactions involving your account, whether authorized or not; billing, billing errors, credit reporting, the posting of transactions, payment or credits, or collections matters relating to your account; services or benefits programs relating to your account, whether or not they are offered, introduced, sold or provided by us; advertisements, promotions, or oral or written statements related to your use of the Sports Wagering Platform or your account (or preceding the opening of) your account; the application, enforceability or interpretation of this Agreement, including this arbitration provision; and any other matters relating to the Sports Wagering Platform, your account, a prior related account or the resulting relationships between you and us. Any questions about what Claims are subject to arbitration shall be resolved by interpreting this arbitration provision in the broadest way the law will allow it to be enforced.

  • Claims subject to arbitration include not only Claims made directly by you, but also Claims made by anyone connected with you or claiming through you, such as a co-applicant or authorized user of your account. Similarly, Claims subject to arbitration include not only Claims that relate directly to us, a parent company, affiliated company, and any predecessor and successors (and the employees, officers and directors of all of these entities), but also Claims for which we may be directly or indirectly liable, even if we are not properly named at the time the Claim is made.

  • Claims subject to arbitration include Claims based on any theory of law, any contract statute, regulation, ordinance, tort (including fraud or any intentional tort), common law, constitutional provision, respondent superior, agency or other doctrine concerning liability for other persons, custom or course of dealing or any other legal or equitable ground (including any claim for injunctive or declaratory relief). Claims subject to arbitration include Claims based on any allegations of fact, including an alleged act, inaction, omission, suppression, representation, statement, obligation, duty, right, condition, status or relationship.

  • Claims subject to arbitration include Claims that arose in the past, or arise in the present or future. Claims are subject to arbitration whether they are made independently or with other claims in proceedings involving you, us, or others. Claims subject to arbitration include Claims that are made as counterclaims, cross-claims, third-party claims, interpleaders, or otherwise, and a party who initiates a proceeding in court may elect arbitration with respect to any Claim(s) advanced in the lawsuit by any other party or parties. Claims subject to arbitration include Claims made as part of a class action or other representative action, and the arbitration of such Claims must proceed on an individual basis.

  • If you or we require arbitration of a particular Claim, neither you, we, nor any other person may pursue the Claim in any litigation, whether as a class action, private attorney general action, other representative action or otherwise.

Claims Not Covered: Claims are not subject to arbitration if they are filed by you or us in a small claims court, so long as the matter remains in such small claims court and advances only an individual claim for relief.

In the event that the arbitration agreement in these Terms and Conditions is for any reason held to be unenforceable, any litigation against Parx may be commenced only in a state court located within Bucks County, Pennsylvania, or in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and you and we consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of those courts for such purposes.

Initiation of Arbitration: The party filing an arbitration must choose one of the following three arbitration administrators: National Arbitration Forum; American Arbitration Association; or JAMS. These administrates are independent from us, and you must follow their rules and procedures for initiating and pursuing an arbitration. If you initiate the arbitration, you must also notify us in writing at Parx Casino, 2999 Street Rd., Bensalem, PA 19020, Attn: Legal Department. If we initiate the arbitration, we will notify you in writing at your then current Billing address or (if your account is closed) the last address we have on file for you. Any arbitration hearing that you attend will be held at a place chosen by the arbitrator or arbitration administrator in the same city as the United States District Court closest to your billing address, or at some other place to which you and we agree in writing. You may obtain copies of the current rules of each of the three arbitration administrators named above, and other related materials, including forms and instructions for initiating an arbitration, by contacting the arbitration administrators as follows:

    • National Arbitration Forum
    • P.O. Box 50191
    • Minneapolis, MN 55405-0191
    • Web Site: www.arbitration-forum.com


    • American Arbitration Association
    • 335 Madison Avenue, Floor 10
    • New York, NY 10017-4605
    • Web Site: www.adr.org


    • JAMS
    • 1920 Main Street, Suite 300
    • Irvine, CA 92614-7279
    • Web Site: www.jamsadr.com

Procedures and Law Applicable in Arbitration: A single arbitrator will resolve Claims. The arbitrator will either be a lawyer with at least ten years' experience or a retired or former judge. The arbitrator will be selected in accordance with the rules of the arbitration administrator and will be neutral. The arbitration will be conducted under the applicable procedures and rules of the arbitration administrator that are in effect on the date the arbitration is filed unless this arbitration provision is inconsistent with those procedures and rules, in which case this Agreement will prevail. These procedures and rules may limit the amount of discovery available to you or us. The arbitrator will apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statutes of limitations, as agreed, and will honor claims of privilege recognized at law. The Arbitrator must apply the substantive law of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Arbitrator is without jurisdiction to apply any different substantive law. The arbitrator will take reasonable steps to protect customer account information and other confidential information, including the use of protective orders to prohibit disclosure outside the arbitration, if requested to do so by you or us. The Arbitrator will have the authority to hear and decide dispositive motions, including a motion to dismiss or a motion for summary judgment by any party, and will apply the standards under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure to such motions. The arbitrator will have the power to award to a party any damages or other relief provided for under applicable law, and will not have the power to award relief to, against, or for the benefit of, any person who is not a party to the proceeding. The arbitrator will make any award in writing but need not provide a statement of reasons unless requested by a party. Upon a request by you or us, the arbitrator will provide a brief statement of the reasons for the award.

Costs: If we file the arbitration, we will pay the initial filing fee. If you file the arbitration, you will pay the initial filing fee, unless you seek and qualify for a fee waiver under the applicable rules of the arbitration administrator. We will reimburse you for the initial filing fee if you paid it and you prevail. If there is a hearing, we will pay any fees of the arbitrator and arbitration administrator for the first day of that hearing. All other fees will be allocated in keeping with the rules of the arbitration administrator and applicable law. However, we will advance or reimburse filing fees and other fees if the arbitration administrator or arbitrator determines there is other good reason for requiring us to do so, or we determine there is good cause for doing so. Each party will bear the expense of that party's attorneys, experts, and witnesses, and other expenses, regardless of which party prevails, except that the arbitrator shall apply any applicable law in determining whether a party should recover any or all expenses from another party.

No Consolidation or Joinder of Parties: All parties to the arbitration must be individually named. Claims by persons other than individually named parties shall not be raised or determined. Notwithstanding anything else that may be in this arbitration provision or Agreement, no class action, private attorney general action or other representative action may be pursued in arbitration, nor may such action be pursued in court if any party has elected arbitration. Unless consented to by all parties to the arbitration, Claims of two or more persons may not be joined, consolidated or otherwise brought together in the same arbitration (unless those persons are applicants, co-applicants or authorized users on a single account and/or related accounts or parties to a single transaction or related transactions); this is so whether or not the Claims (or any interest in the Claims) may have been assigned.

Enforcement, Finality, Appeals: you or we may bring an action, including a summary or expedited motion, to compel arbitration of Claims subject to arbitration, or to stay the litigation of any Claims pending arbitration, in any court having jurisdiction. Such action maybe brought at any time, even if any such Claims are part of a lawsuit, unless a trial has begun or a final judgment has been entered. Failure or forbearance to enforce this arbitration provision at any particular time, or in connection with any particular Claims, will not constitute a waiver of any rights to require arbitration at a later time or in connection with any other Claims. Any additional or different agreement between you and us regarding arbitration must be in writing. Within fifteen days after an award by the single arbitrator, any party may appeal the award by requesting in writing a new arbitration before a panel of three neutral arbitrators designated by the same arbitration administrator. The panel will consider all factual and legal issues anew, follow the same rules that apply to a proceeding using a single arbitrator, and make decisions based on the vote of the majority. Costs will be allocated in the same way they are allocated for arbitration before a single arbitrator. An award by a panel, or an award by a single arbitrator after fifteen days has passed, shall be final and binding on the parties, subject to judicial review that may be permitted under the FAA. An award in arbitration will be enforceable as provided by the FAA or other applicable law by any court having jurisdiction. An award in arbitration shall determine the fights and obligations between the named parties only, and only in respect of the Claims in arbitration, and shall not have any bearing on the rights and obligations of any other person, nor on the resolution of any other dispute or controversy.

Nothing in these Terms and Conditions prevents either party from making a report to or filing a claim or charge with a government agency, including, without limitation, the Board. This arbitration clause does not affect your ability to file a complaint with the Board through the procedures identified in Section 2(b)(16). These Terms and Conditions also do not prevent administrative agencies from adjudicating claims and awarding remedies based on those claims, even if the claims would otherwise be covered by these Terms and Conditions. Nothing in these Terms and Conditions prevents or excuses a party from satisfying any conditions precedent or exhausting administrative remedies under applicable law before bringing a claim in arbitration.

Severability, Survival: This arbitration provision shall survive: (i) termination or changes in the Agreement, the account and the relationship between you and us concerning the account; (ii) the bankruptcy of any party; and (iii) any transfer or assignment of your account, or any amounts owed on your account, to any other person. If any portion of this arbitration provision is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall nevertheless remain in force.

14. Class Action and Collective Action Waiver

PARX AND YOU KNOWINGLY WAIVE ANY RIGHT FOR ANY DISPUTE TO BE BROUGHT, HEARD, DECIDED OR ARBITRATED AS A CLASS ACTION OR COLLECTIVE ACTION AND THE ARBITRATOR WILL HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO HEAR OR PRESIDE OVER ANY SUCH CLAIM ("Class and Collective Action Waiver").

Notwithstanding any other clause or language in these Terms and Conditions or any rules or procedures that might otherwise apply because of these Terms and Conditions (including without limitation the arbitration rules discussed herein) or any amendments or modifications to those rules, any claim that the Class and Collective Action Waiver, or any portion of the Class and Collective Action Waiver is invalid, unenforceable, unconscionable, void, or voidable, will be determined only by a court of competent jurisdiction and not by an arbitrator.
