I placed bets of 50-100 eur on Table Tennis, match winner. Some bets lost, but most part won. And as i see, this player keep playing, o problem with him so far!! 14 months since account blocked!!

I,ll go out on a limb here and say you were in contact with someone live at the table tennis matches.

And were betting on winner of the next point and getting your bet on before the umpire had updated the score. but some not quite quick enough hence a few losses.

Was an old trick that used to be common in normal tennis.

Table tennis tournament is held without spectators, in a closed arena, participants are prohibited from carrying their phones. To have chance for canceling bets, player shout be arrest. But he's fine, no problem with him!
If you don't know rules of the game, better stay away from comments!

For me, table tennis is very exiting sport. Everything goes very quick. Game goes 10-15 minutes, and after that you are lucky winner or looser. I usually bet on the last game in the group, before final. When player knows, he's already in the final, he can easy loose last game in the group, but he's favourite anyway. I'm taking my risk, staying on that!!

Ok. Well you’re following a suspicious betting pattern right there.

And what do you think is better to do for me right now, be patient and keep waiting??

No, you keep fighting to get your money. But i could see why an investigation would start if you're betting on Table Tennis without spectators (meaning its low level) and following the pattern you mentioned.

Make a complaint to them, go through their complaints procedure, then back to the ADR when you have a deadlock letter then to the MGA.
If you have already done the first two, then straight to the MGA

Here is reply from Bet365 i've got it right now:

Hi Maria,

I appreciate you are requesting some further information regarding your account status, however currently this does still remain under review.

I can see we have emailed you on 15/09/2020 which was our final response on the matter. As such, should you remain unhappy with the information provided please refer back to our final response which will detail how you can proceed to IBAS.

Should there be any updates in the meantime, we will look to contact you directly.

Kind regards,

Anthony

And this is answer from IBAS, who says, they are helpless.

I appreciate the disappointment this email will bring, but again IBAS do not have the authority to interfere in an ongoing review. If you do not wish to wait, then your only option would be to consider legal action against Bet365.



If Bet365 come back to us with any further information I will email you again.



Kind regards,



James Ironside

Bet365. like a real FRAUD company says contact IBAS, knowing, that IBAS has zero influence to them!! But time is running and 14 months gone!! And nothing's changed! They can not void bets, because it is illegal, but they can keep bets unsettled for ages, what is pretty good for them. How to deal with organised fraud from Bet365 side, who knows??

Well, they’ve told you what to do; you can take legal advice and action. You can go to the regulator. But posting on forums won’t change anything - they’re a huge organisation and one negative review will have negligible impact on them.

So, you could do a PAB here, see if that helps. Or get a solicitor to take it on. Not sure about the legal landscape in Germany, but I’d be surprised if some don’t work on a no-win no-fee basis.

This is a weird situation. The only possible thing I can think of that would take so long is a case of match fixing or some kind of corruption on the event you were betting on. But if that was the case I’m sure it would be in the public domain right now.

I’m struggling to understand why Bet365 would say the case is still being investigated, surely they’ve made the decision that you’re not being paid and that’s the end of it? If they have referred you to IBAS that would certainly usually happen at the conclusion of a review.

It may just be terminology being used here. See if you can get 365 to say the matter is concluded on their side and the outcome is x. Hopefully then IBAS will be able to assist, they are usually very fair.

Unfortunately, nobody is ready to work on no-win-no-fee. But find 5000-10000 eur for good solicitor i'm not ready now. I agree, organisation is too big, but anyway i should tell people the truth, that things can happen at bet365!!

Google tells me there's some match fixing cases from the last few months, dating back to 2019.

And I agree, match fixing is the only thing I can see taking so long to investigate.

Surely, bet365 have decided, they not gonna pay me. But doing this, they should void my bets. So, they know, IBAS won't let them do it, because there is no ground to do it!! And the only way to keep my money is too keep bets unsettled!! And it seems forever!! Is it a real fraud???

If you say, there was match fixed, then somebody should be punished and result annulated, isn't so??

Just because it was not open to spectators, There's no reason you didn't have someone there, with a bluetooth in their ear.

Bet 365 seem pretty confident on the outcome.
