A man who was refused a payout of £1.7m after his online betting company account was credited with the money has taken his case to the High Court.

Andy Green, 53, from Lincolnshire, said he hit the jackpot in January 2018 playing a blackjack game from bookmaker Betfred on his phone.

Betfred said there was a software error and the company.s terms and conditions meant it could withhold the payment.

But lawyers for Mr Green say they have been given no proof of the problem.

After a long night playing the Betfred Frankie Dettori Magic Seven Blackjack in January 2018, Mr Green.s online account was credited with £1,722,923.54 which he tried to withdraw - but the request was declined.

After placing some more bets with his winnings he took a screenshot to prove what had happened.

However, a Betfred director called him to say there had been a "software error" and it was rejecting the claim.

Superb :-

A Betfred punter denied a £1.7m jackpot over an alleged software glitch has won a legal battle to claim the winnings.

Andy Green, from Lincolnshire, scooped the prize in January 2018 while playing a blackjack game on his phone.

The bookmaker refused to pay out, claiming the error meant the game was not operating properly.

High Court judge Mrs Justice Foster ruled in Mr Green`s favour and said the company had no grounds for withholding payment.

The judgement means Mr Green, from Washingborough, will finally receive his payout, plus interest, after a three-year battle.

A bookie that doesn't pay out is pretty low. If you win too regularly for their liking they will also be pretty quick in shutting down your account. They are only interested in customers if they are losers
