The Paddy Power subsidiary Sportsbet has been indicted by an annoyed punter from the Victoria province in Australia of unilaterally reducing the gambler's opportunities to win, the Sun Herald newspaper reports.
Robert MacMillan (55) filed a litigation with the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, claiming that after several years of being a loyal but mainly unsuccessful gambler on the site, he managed to hit a winning streak at the end of 2012 achieving wins of around A$ 22,500.
However, this led to the company reducing his betting choices so radically that it severely constrained his opportunities to win more, MacMillan asserts adding that if he had remained unrestricted, he could have won up to GBP 35,000.
Sportsbet's lawyers, for their part, insist that as per the company T&Cs, the operator is entitled to limit the wagering options of punters, or to decline to accept their business entirely.
Additionally, Sportsbet claims that the issue has been raised with the wrong court, because Sportsbet is licensed by the Northern Territory, but the Victorian authorities denied the claim requesting that the company submits a formal response to MacMillan's claims by the end of May.
