Online game site Betfair Australia received the reimbursement of $ 150,000 to a problematic player after not identifying his behavior of bets of "red flag", in what is considered A historic verdict on the responsibilities of digital gaming providers. I'm sorry, a great expense customer, in February of this year, asked Betfair to grant $ 150,000 from his Betfair account and deposit it into his bank account. But a few hours later, and in a "desperate mindset" after losing a total of $ 190,000 in a short period of time, the player asked that Betfair reverse the transaction and return to put the money in his betting account.
After a series of telephone calls, Betfair agreed to approve a $ 145,000 reversal as "unilateral," which the leader began to bet and lose in bets posted on Betfair that same day. Betfair left $ 5000 in its bank account, which was played and lost the next day.
In delivering his decision, the NT racing commission said he had considered the key question as to whether Betfair should have identified certain "red flag behaviors" that indicated that the client was a potentially problematic player.
