    Default BetEasy being sued for $1.2 million over unpaid winnings

    Australian based bookmaker BetEasy is being sued for $1.2 million, plus punitive damages, by a customer who claims she did not sign the bookies terms and conditions on maximum payouts.

    From The Sydney Morning Herald:

    Renee Bell is pursuing the difference of $1.44 million in the Supreme Court after landing a monster parlay bet of which BetEasy, formerly CrownBet, paid out just $250,000.
    In a defence filed on May 29 in the Supreme Court, BetEasy says it is in its terms and conditions upon signing up with the bookmaker that it pays out a maximum of $250,000 a day, regardless of the potential winnings of a bet.

    BetEasy says in the documents Bell opened an account with the betting agency in August, 2015.
    Bell says in a reply filed with the court that she didn't agree to the terms as she didn't create the account. She says she wasn't aware she had a CrownBet account until she received an email three days after joining Crown Casino's Signature Club.

    "When she joined the Crown Signature Club she did not agree to CrownBet's terms and conditions and such terms and conditions were not brought to her attention; and when she first logged in to her CrownBet account she did not agree to CrownBet's terms and conditions and such terms and conditions were not brought to her attention," court documents read.

    Bell placed $500 worth of multi-bets including a $100 five-leg all-up that returned $1,260,748.80, successfully tipping horses Jaminzah ($16), Marcel From Madrid ($9), Praguematist ($4.80) and Miss Iano ($9.50) to win their respective races around Australia on Saturday, May 19, 2018, as well as West Coast to beat Richmond ($1.92) on Sunday, May 20.

    Bell's other four $100 bets all used the same horses - all of which were either part-owned or bred by relatives - and football match, but with different combinations of three horses to place and one to win, which returned another $182,447.10.

    However, BetEasy paid out just $250,000 for Bell's first successful bet plus her $100 stake and cancelled the other four bets, refunding her $400.
