Post the BetBright’s acquisition by the 888 group, there have been issues facing players as the 888 haven’t been able to on board BetBright’s players onto their platform. However, the group’s representatives have claimed that discussions are underway and that they are committed to finding a solution to the problems. On Monday earlier this week, the 888 group acquired BetBright, a popular gaming platform. BetBright’s Dublin office will also be taken over and will become part of the 888 group.
Following the acquisition, on Tuesday, BetBright’s officials cleared the air making it clear that BretBright will not offer any gambling services permanently. Moreover, in their address, they asked BetBright’s investors to withdraw all investments within 30 days. To the relief of some players, 888 announced that they would honor the Chetman Festival bets placed on the BetBright platform. The decision comes after the strong reaction and protests from players after it was not clear as to what will happen as the 888 group maintained that all unsettled bets would become void. A 888 spokesperson on Wednesday said: “A spokesperson for 888 said: “As a gesture of goodwill, 888 will be honoring and paying out on all winning Cheltenham Festival bets placed through BetBright’s sportsbook.”
However, it still remains to be cleared as to what happens to all unsettled bets with BetBright. Amidst lack of any precise information, it is believed that the unsettled bets apart from the Chetman Festival bets will become void.
Further reports are coming in that the Nottingham Forest Football Club, having a sponsorship deal with BetBright, have said that they are discussing the issue with both stakeholders as of now. Taking the matter into cognizance, the Gambling Commission is also looking into the matter and especially the problems involving the disputes arising out of the unsettled bets claimed by BetBright’s players.
