Unibet confiscates bet winnings and refunds deposit
A Unibet Sportsbook (SBR rating C) player submits an account dispute. The player tells SBR that he deposited €200 on December 17th, and placed one bet for €140. A day later the player claims Unibet closed his account, refunded the deposit, and seized €119 in bet winnings. SBR is investigating this Unibet claim.
On November 12th, SBR reported that Unibet was downgraded to C.
Unibet closed a player's account and seized a €10,000 balance whilst providing no explanation to the user or Sportsbook Review.
Unibet has no issues enforcing a controversial rule that appears designed to fleece bettors out of their winnings.
Unibet rule: "2.3 Unibet reserves the right, at its own discretion, at all times, to: Decline to open a Unibet Account and/or to close an existing Unibet Account, without any explanation whatsoever".
Unibet Sportsbook is licensed by the Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA) of Malta. SBR suggests that players with outstanding disputes file their claims with the LGA.
