This week it was revealed that a West Virginia casino company is suing UK sportsbetting group Miomni Gaming, whose platform went offline during the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, costing the operator money.
The lawsuit stems from the operator Delaware North, who claims that the Miomni Gaming platform went down during the tournament, which proves to be extremely popular for taking in wagers. The casinos affected include Mardi Gras Casino and Wheeling Island Hotel-Casino-Racetrack, and reportedly lost a significant amount of potential revenue due to the outage, which was caused by the company shutting down the platform.
The lawsuit alleges a contract breach and that Miomni and CEO Michael Venner mis-represented their ownership structure. The lawsuit was filed last week, and both parties have not issued comment as of press time.
That's an interesting case I think...probably from the casino company are pretty mad of the platform failure and registered losses because of it so I guess they could won that court battle and gain some amount in penalty fees...whether that would cover for all their lost profits is another question.
