A blackjack gambler who won £1.7million with Betfred but never received his payout after the company blamed a ‘software glitch’ could be days from getting his winnings.
Single father Andrew Green, 53, has been battling with the company for more than two years, trying to get the winnings he says he won fair and square.
Mr Green, from Washingborough, Lincolnshire, celebrated for five days when he thought he had become a millionaire while playing blackjack on the website.
But his dreams were crushed when the company claimed there had been a ‘software malfunction’ which led to the jackpot so his winning were void.
