Australian betting and entertainment provider Tabcorp has begun proceedings in the Supreme Court against rival Entain and the NSW division of the Australian Hotels Association. Tabcorp alleges these companies have failed to disclose “sufficient” information about recent advertising contracts that allowed NSW pubs to advertise Entain’s online betting platform.
Tabcorp began legal action in the Supreme Court on Monday afternoon after seeking preliminary findings from Entain and the New South Wales pub over the controversial advertising deal. This shows that the contract “could raise the risk of violating the Illegal Gambling Act of 1998.”
Last month, a deal signed between Entain and a NSW hotel allowed bars to advertise Entain’s digital platforms Ladbrokes and Ned’s, representing a breach of the exclusive agreement between the two brands, Tabcorp said. Tabcorp’s state license expects the state’s bars and clubs to be exclusively allowed to run retail bets for this group in their venues. In 2013, the company’s long state license was extended until 2033. 경마사이트
The Supreme Court will settle the dispute:
Tabcorp argues that Entain and the NSW Hotel Association do not provide enough information about advertising contracts, allowing the group to decide on further action. The Company has commenced legal action against these two parties through the Supreme Court and will include a claim for damages or provisional injunction against them once substantive proceedings begin.
