Kindred Sued by Odd Molly Founder

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

Online betting operator Kindred is being sued by clothing brand Odd Molly's founder Per Holknekt, who's seeking SEK10 million from the company after he lost millions gambling with the company.

Holknekt says that he struggled with gambling addiction for 15 years, claiming to have lost SEK26 million at Kindred's Unibet and SEK55 million in all. The designer claims that Unibet should have flagged his account and put safeguards in place to protect him from gambling so much.

Speaking to gaming publication iGB Holknekt said, "We go into this process with a great deal of confidence as we have a professional data analyst team (thanks to GDPR), a strong legal partner and endless witnesses and whistle-blowers from both in and outside of Kindred group and Kambi.

"What we have so far is enough, yet we will work around the clock to strengthen it."

Kindred acknowledged the lawsuit but declined comment for the time being.
