Bet365.com Samuel L. Jackson Promos Under Scrutiny

Popular British-based online bookmaker Bet365 has come under fire down under with its promos that feature Hollywood actor Samuel L. Jackson.  The company is accused by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) of failing to properly disclose terms associated with offers of free bets and deposit bonuses.

Consumers had to risk their own deposit, gamble large amounts of money and bet on high-risk transactions in order to be eligible for the offers, the ACCC told the Sydney Morning Herald.

Chairman Rod Sims told the paper that consumer issues in online trading were an enforcement priority for the ACCC.

“The online betting industry is a growing business sector. The Australian Consumer Law applies to this sector in the same way that it applies to other industries and sectors,” Mr Sims said.

“The Consumer Law also requires that any conditions, limitations or restrictions should be made clear to the consumer before the purchase rather after a consumer has been unfairly enticed into a transaction.”

Jackson, who recently signed on with Bet365, is best known for his roles in “Snakes on a Plane”, “The Incredibles and “Pulp Fiction”.
