Coral Sportsbook (SBR rating A-) has paid the player from SBR's 6/28 bonus complaint report in full. The player contacted SBR stating that he deposited £25 for a 100% bonus promo and through play increased his balance to £510. However, Coral voided his wagers and canceled the bonus stating that it did not allow players from Belarus to accept promotions. After discussion with SBR, Coral decided to pay the player in full.
Coral player: [quote]thank you very much, coral paid all the money, even winning with a bonus Thank you very much again, you are an expert in their field and you are very sympathetic person, I want to like you were more in the world and the world would be a betterAll Good in your life[/quote]
Coral (SBR rating A-) has voided a player's bonus and winning wager. In early June, a player from Belarus deposited £25 and received a 100% bonus. He won £300 on his first wager, and an additional £210 in subsequent wagers bringing his account balance to £510. Coral then voided all wagers and canceled the bonus. Coral's promotion page limited the bonus to UK residents only, however the software applied the bonus to the player. Coral has subsequently argued to SBR that it has a right to limit its promotions however it wishes. Canceling all wagers from players that did not spot the country restriction terms, rather than deducting the bonus amount and honoring all winnings allows a potential free-roll of the player. SBR is discussing the bonus complaint with Coral further.
