Bezbets was last month brought before the courts for allegedly defrauding a client of US$5 400 he had won after playing a game. The company is being represented by its manager Mr Robson Chinamasa in that matter and he entered a plea of not guilty on behalf of the firm to the fraud charges.

The trial is expected to start this Friday before Harare magistrate Mr Simon Kandiyero.

Prosecuting, Ms Faith Mavhudzi alleged that on October 26 on the Bezbets online platform, the complainant alleges that he placed a bet on the roulette with a stake of US$394 which gave him a potential win of US$5 400. The complainant alleges he won the bet and proceeded to the shop to withdraw his win of US$5 400. But the court heard that Bezbets refused to make the pay-out of US$5 400 and instead offered US$1 800.

The customer refused and made a police report.
