Betnacional, one of the main betting portals for the World Cup and sports games, said that the betting market was compromised by instabilities in Pix this Friday morning (2).
According to the company, customers had difficulties making withdrawals and generating QRcodes used in betting. The number of complaints exploded — it was 20 times higher than the norm.
On the rise in recent months, betting sites have become a refuge for fans who want to profit by betting on random predictions in World Cup games.
The companies themselves invested heavily in publicizing this modality. Betnacional even used influencers on social networks to boost its brand. Striker Vinícius Junior. was the poster child during the championship held in Qatar.
Galvão Bueno, who should end his participation in World Cups this year, is responsible for advertising at Pixbet.
