Two aggrieved customers of the leading bookmaker in Nigeria, Bet9ja, Dennis Dickson and Orazurume Jude Mary, have called on the company to pay them their dues.
Dickson stated that he has been deprived of his winning twice by the company, saying, “The first instance occurred during the 2018 World Cup, when I staked a bet with the company on the option that some selected players will not score more than 2 to 3 goals per match, all of a sudden after winning the ticket the company void it and said the option was meant to run for the whole of the tournament.
“The second time, I staked on some players that during the transfer window they will not change club without loan deals included, after winning my ticket the company on the 31st night of August 2018 changed the optioned and said that loan deals are also included. Whereas, a loaned player is still the property of the parent club and can be recalled at any time even before the expiration of the loan deal. “
Dickson stated that his tickets are: B93ECCWRTQZPE-675035 and B959ECCWERAWTT-68445.
Orazurume Jude Mary Tochi also stated that he played the game in Ekwulobia, Anambra State and the company reneged on the initial agreement that was reached earlier and that was not part of the initial agreement.
Tochi said: “I entered a bet with Bet9ja company under the category of transfer market with bet placed on whether a player would go on transfer to another club or not.
“Loan deal did not count at the time of this deal, but Bet9ja suddenly turned around and reversed the rule of the transfer market, stating that loan deal now counts after we agreed on transfer or no transfer.
“The sudden change was not acceptable as it was against the terms and conditions given to customers, after predicting players who will not change club.
“This amounted to N16,000,000 and N200,000.
“Two players are on loan, which is NOT transferred to the best of knowledge.
“Players on loan still belong to their parent. I went to my game its shows its lost, am not happy.”
Tochi gave his ticket number as B928SPPRCWPPSC-211061.
