Mr Bjarte Baasland used various internet based betting services for a number of years, and in the end he had accumulated a total loss of approximately 7,5 million Euros. Centrebet was one of two services he used the most, and in 2009 he initiated legal proceedings against the Australian company. Mr Baasland claims that he was a gaming addict and that Centrebet should have stopped his gaming and should not have enticed him to further gaming. The legal proceedings were initiated in Norway, and Centrebet asked the court for a dismissal, claiming that Norway was not an applicable legal venue. Both the City Court and the Appeal Court accepted Centrebet's argument and wanted to dismiss the case. However, the Supreme Court turned it all around, and Centrebet will now be part of legal proceedings before Norwegian courts.
