Hi all,

Firstly I wasn't quite sure which area to post this, so apologies if I've got the wrong place. Right, to my question.

 

I won £6500 on an online casino last July and they are refusing to pay me. I have done all of the SAR, online mediation, contacting the CEO of the company, involving the gambling commission etc etc to no avail. The casino's stance is basically "take us to court". I'd love to as I've got a water-tight case, but the problem is that they're based in Malta with no UK service address. Questions:

 

- Am I correct in thinking that I have to take them to court in Malta? and if yes..

 

- Does anybody know how to do this and if there are any solicitors who may specialise in these type of overseas disputes?

 

- Any other general advise on how best to proceed?

 

For info, the casino involved is Slotty Vegas and their parent company is Max Entertainment.

 

Many thanks, Lee.

Good luck. Its almost impossible due to jurisdiction issues as well as various laws. We also cant advise on solicitors you can use. If y ou do choose to find a malta based lawyer and sue over there, be advised that it can get very expensive, especially if you lose.

 

What are their reasons for non payment?

Hi, thanks for your response.

 

They first alleged "fraudulant activity" on my account and when I challenged them and they couldn't supply any evidence of that, they changed their mind saying that I had "displayed signs of problem gambling and the proper thing to do was to close my account" (I'd deposited on there twice....)

 

Based on your comments, they're clearly crooks who know that they are pretty safe from being taken to court. Will still pursue it though as I don't like having £6500 stolen from me!!

Well as i say, be very aware that it will be expensive for you, win or lose, and thats IF you can find a maltese based lawyer willing to take on your case. Very VERY few do.

Have a quick google of them as well. Lets just say their other business dealings make you stay clear of them
