Svenbet – non-payment


Found for the Player - Svenbet are refusing to pay this player due to 'arbitrage betting' but in our opinion they have insufficient evidence to support this claim.

Read our Svenbet Review.

Player's Complaint

Hello to all,

I wanted to share today [EDIT].

So before 3 weeks i opened an account by them and deposited 600eur via SOFORT and after 3 bets, i made 1800EUR. Requested cashout, they told me that they need verification. Sent them ID,sofort payment verification and at the end selfie and after 1 week got that message:


Svenbet reserves the right to close down existing accounts without explanation. In this event, or in the event of an account closure by a customer, the full balance will be paid out unless any fraudulent (e.g. arbitrage.bonnus abusing,etc.) behaviour is suspected Svenbet also reserves the right to report to the appropriate authorities, if any customer is involved in any form of suspected fraudulent behaviour.

Winnings from sports bet deducted from account , deposited amount remaining for the cash-out.

Kind regards,

KYC Team

And of course, after that one, no reply to my mails, no reply at chats and i can't get even my deposit from 11 days which is boring story.

Hi eemurla,

I've discussed your issue with the operator. Svenbet believe that you have engaged in what is known as "arbitrage betting". This is an activity that is explicitly prohibited by the Svenbet terms and conditions. Having reviewed the evidence that Svenbet have gathered to support their position, while there is some indicators that would suggest they may be right, they do not in our opinion have enough supporting evidence to be confident enough that there has been a breach of terms to justify non-payment. Unfortunately the operator are not willing to change their position.

Sorry we could not be of further help!
