Customers at the offices of Winners Incorporated on Broad Street.Many unhappy customers of Winners Incorporated recently prevented some staff members of the company from leaving its head office on Broad Street, because their winnings were not paid by the management.They told journalists that the company failed to pay their winnings, which prompted their action. “I have lost a lot of money with Winners in the past and when the time came to pay us what we won, they refused to do so,” one of the unhappy customers said.He said information came from Winners Incorporated suggesting to them to take their grievance to the National Lottery Authority (NLA), one of the disgruntled customers said Winners Incorporated management is aware that most of the customers cannot seek any legal help.“Some of us (people with winning tickets) are worried and don’t know if we will continue to play with Winners Incorporated because of the situation,” one said.Several of the customers also accused Winners Incorporated of not responding to their concerns since they have been partners in their betting game.A lady customer refused the company’s claim that “it does not have to pay when the odd number is not correct. But how can I know if the odd number is correct? Anytime I win big money, they can say the odd number is not correct and so they will not pay.”“They just fooled us every day because they delayed paying our money,” another customer said.Responding to Winners Incorporated, a man who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to speak said the company engaged the unhappy customers and finally paid out their winnings. He could not explain the cause for the delay and refused to get into the details on the odds that was seemingly responsible for the crisis.He, however, denied that the delay in payment was deliberate and intended to fool them. “We have been in the sports betting business for a long time and we always take care of our customers,” he said. “We have settled their concerns and all is fine.”Sports betting have been around for some time and another company Doxxbet Liberia Inc. is also said to be a strong competitor in the sector.Said a spokesman: “We at Doxxbet Liberia Inc. are always aware of our responsibility, including the odds we are offering. We understand that Liberian customers deserve a high-quality service and that is what we have been offering for many years. We will try to keep the same level of effort and dedication, so our customers always consider us fair and trustworthy company.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Barca are hoping to lift one piece of silverware this weekend before going on to secure the Spanish league title — they can still complete the entire La Liga season unbeaten.But their domestic success so far this season has been overshadowed by the nature of their Champions League exit. They lost to Roma in the quarter-finals on away goals, capitulating 3-0 in Italy after a 4-1 win at home in the first leg.Barcelona have won the Copa del Rey in each of the last three seasons, including defeating Sevilla 2-0 after extra-time in Madrid in 2016.“It would be something significant for the club because they have won this final in recent years and it is not an easy thing to do,” said Valverde.The last team to win the Cup four seasons running was Athletic Bilbao in the early 1930s.A victory for the Catalans would set them up nicely for their next La Liga outing, when a victory at Deportivo La Coruna would secure the title. That is if they are not crowned champions on Sunday, which will be the case if Betis win away to Atletico.“In La Liga we have five ‘match balls’ left and we just need to take one of them, but we will try to do it as soon as possible,” added Valverde, although he had a warning for his side ahead of Saturday’s final.“We have still not won anything yet. The title is still up for grabs. We were also favourites (against Roma) and we got knocked out. We need to take the final step.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Ernesto Valverde’s Barcelona face Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final in Madrid on Saturday © AFP / LLUIS GENEBARCELONA, Spain, Apr 20 – Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde knows victory in Saturday’s Copa del Rey final against Sevilla would go some small way towards making up for the disappointment of their recent Champions League exit.“After a big defeat we want a big victory. We have the opportunity to put that little disappointment behind us,” Valverde said at a press conference on the eve of the game, which will be played at Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
