If Participant does not have a live account with Dukascopy, then he/she should proceed with the live account opening procedure in a regular way. If Participant does not comply with Live account opening requirements, Dukascopy reserves the right to cancel the cash prize.

If a Participant already has a Live account, but has not yet any open sub-accounts, Dukascopy opens a sub-account in the Participant’s reference currency and credits the prize(s) on this sub-account. By default, Dukascopy converts the prize(s) into the currency of the sub-account on which the prize(s) shall be credited in line with the present rules. Such conversion is subject to fees as per the fee schedule posted on Dukascopy website.

LIVE accounts which are credited with prize money are considered LIVE Prize accounts. LIVE Prize accounts can be credited only with cash prize money. Clients are not allowed crediting their own funds on this type of account.

Participants are allowed to withdraw funds in full only when there are no blocked prizes on the account. Profit can only be withdrawn when there are no blocked prizes on the account.
