Found for the Player - After an initially encouraging discourse, Betfair have decided that they will not cooperate in the management of complaints submitted to this service.

Player's Complaint

Recently, I was invited to take part in a casino offer. Bet £100 get £100. On this offer I won £180 followed by a further £36 on an arcade game offer, bet £10 get £2. I submitted a withdrawal for £306 (leaving £10 in the account.) I then received an email saying my account has been closed and the money is being withheld. I have asked for an explanation of why the account was closed and why my money is being withheld but have not been given an answer.

Hi Ishields89 - welcome to!

I'll contact the operator and see what we can find out.

Hi Ishields89,

Unfortunately our dialogue with Betfair has broken down and they have opted not to discuss this issue with us.

At this stage all I can suggest you do is contact Betfair's UKGC approved ADR service eCOGRA.

Sorry we could not be of more help!
