We can assist individuals in the recovery of winnings from betting operators who have failed or refused to pay out to the individual. The operator’s failure to pay out could be the result of a number of different reasons, these can include anti-money laundering considerations, social responsibility or responsible gambling considerations, or an alleged breach of the operator’s various and extensive terms and conditions.
