Yesterday, the DoJ seized ten more domain website domains. This time, however, the list included sportsbooks, most notably Bookmaker.com, 2Betdsi.com (BetDSI), and BetEd.com. In addition to the domain seizures, the DoJ seized 11 bank accounts located in Charlotte, North Carolina; Guam; Panama; Malta; Portugal; and the Netherlands.
Two separate indictments were filed targeting two companies and three individuals on charges of conducting an illegal gambling business and money laundering.
The DoJ previously seized the domains of the three largest U.S.-servicing poker sites -- Poker Stars, Full Tilt Poker, and Absolute Poker/Ultimate Bet -- on April 15. The Associated Press reported yesterday that one of the defendants in that case, Bradley Franzen, plead guilty to lesser charges in exchange for his testimony.
In (maybe) unrelated news, Bodog.com now redirects to Bodog.eu.
