Betsson player accused of chip-dumping

Share with:

A Betsson (SBR rating B-) player reports that his account has been frozen. The player tells SBR that he has been playing at Betsson for four years without any problems. His account was frozen in late December of 2010. The player states that he had no available funds in the account, but that he had several unsettled bets for a few hundred Euro's. According to statements made by Betsson, the player was accused of chip-dumping in the poker room. SBR is following up on this complaint.

Chip-dumping is the practice of intentionally funneling money to other accounts within a poker game. Chip-dumping is typically carried out with two or more accounts. It can be a way to evade an insufficient deposit or to circulate ill-gotten funds. A (SBR rating D-) player was accused of chip-dumping on 10/5 and had $2800 in winnings nullified. The player in that dispute claimed to play heads up for a few hours one evening but denied engaging in any fraudulent behavior.

On 12/8/2009, Betsson closed a player's account which held a €250 balance due to alleged money laundering. Betsson did not inform the player nor SBR how it reached that conclusion. On 12/2/2009, Betsson closed a player's account, seizing a €2600 balance but did not elaborate on why the funds were voided.
