13. Reasonable steps will be taken to award Points and Tier Credits for gaming activities on a near real time basis or after the outcome of the bet has been determined (as the case may be). For hospitality or leisure spend, Points and Tier Credits may be awarded within 24 hours of settling in full the costs incurred.

14. Although Points are non-cashable it is expressed in rands for the sake of convenience.
