Flagrantly violating customer rights, action group says.

Hillside Spain Leisure SA (bet365) is facing a class action suit comprising a group of disgruntled players who are objecting to alleged account closures, absence of consumer protection, abusive clauses and betting limitations which they say have been arbitrarily imposed by the company.

The consumer group action, legally represented by  Toledo attorney Ricardo Fabrega Alarcon, released a statement on claiming several bookmakers, and to a greater extent, Hillside Spain Leisure SA (bet365) are “flagrantly” violating bettors rights.

As a first course of action, has approached and awaits resolution from Spains gambling authority La Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego (DGOJ) on perceived illegal practices it says bet365 has indiscriminately imposed on Spanish customers.

The group is prepared to seek a ruling from Spains Court of First Instance should resolution through the DGOJ not be reached.
