Our greatest fear should not be of failure ...

The Story

Sky Bet CEO Richard Flint defended the right of betting companies to impose restrictions on the accounts of its customers at the House of Lords, saying that closing the accounts of some punters were done to avoid commercial risks.


Flint was on fire at the Parliament.

The Sky Bet CEO attended the seminar of the All-Party Betting & Gaming Group (APBGG) armed with statistics that showed 97% of Sky Bet’s 1m horseracing punters had no restrictions on their accounts, while 2% had potential winnings capped at £1k for major races, and an unfortunate 1% whose winnings were capped at £100. On allegations that his company closed accounts of winning punters, Flint said they only shut down accounts of punters which may be “unprofitable” for them, such as those involved in fraud or those belonging to gamblers who have problem gambling behavior.
