Re: Skybet

Lot's of unanswered questions about that huge case. One of them being, just how much had this student deposited and staked prior to the winning multi bet in question? There's no way that was a first wager of that size on that account. Nobody can open a new account, deposit £25k and lay it all out on...

Re: Skybet

JJ is right. Think about it from their point of view. If you were them, how are you going to convince a judge that somebody else gave another person money to specifically gamble with on their behalf? As JJ says though, just because many gamb co's settle before a full hearing date, it doesn't guarant...

Re: Skybet

Did you make sure you sent them a proper Letter Before Action first that gave them a few weeks to respond to?

Re: The Sun Play (Nektan) ignoring closure requests

Well those are pretty substantive emails for them to digest. Fingers crossed they see the failures here and come back to you with something more than barriers. Just one thing, they are quite wrong to say they cannot do self exclusions over the phone. Many other firms do and they simply read you the ...

Re: William Hill duplicate account

Good to hear. Well done.

It's a long game raising disputes and standing firm, but just goes to show one should not lie down and take bookie's initial stances.

Re: The Sun Play (Nektan) ignoring closure requests

Pretty much standard responses there from the GC. Though I note they are now advising they have no legal powers to intervene in customer/operator disputes. But they do still round off with their usual traffic directions to the courts. It really isn't surprising that so many court cases have to be in...

Re: Skybet

Don't bother appealing the IBAS decision. They're a sham of a mediator. Go straight to LBA on Skybet. As JJ says, providing things are as you say, then you should be ok. Because in a civil court the burden of proof is on the gambling company accusing you of using third party money. It will be next t...

Re: The Sun Play (Nektan) ignoring closure requests

In the meantime, it might also be worth submitting a Subject Access Request now, given they can take a month to comply. They won't like it, but they'll have to comply under GDPR rules. You've got 'em banged to rights so far, just a question of how and when you can get their full attention. It's a re...
