UK: Man denied £1.7m payout by Betfred takes fight to High Court Tom Symonds, BBC · October 17, 2020 at 5:28 pm 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.
