I have a different complaint. I played several times on lottery through Paddy Power and when checking my account I see the bet is recorded there but nowhere the numbers are specified. I entered the chat to ask why it was not recorded and was told that it is because the lottery bets are taken manually, not on the betting system. That is fine, but I cannot see the reason why it cannot be specified there in the description of my bet. I said that and I was told that 'you are advised to be aware of the numbers you play'. I said to the man that does not prove anything. Being aware is not the same as proof afaik - it does not entitle anyone to claim any winnings. I think this is not fair to customers. What good is to have records that cannot prove your numbers?
