Internet sports betting firm SBObet has issued a strong denial against a claim that the group's site was used to gamble illegally within the United States last weekend.
The charges come after eight people were arrested in Las Vegas last weekend, including professional poker player Paul Phua. The men were detained as a result of a raid at Caesars, where they were suspected of running an illegal sports betting ring. The ring was allegedly using SBObet to facilitate the wagers.
SBObet said that the accusations are not true, and went on to note that none of those arrested have a relationship with the firm or the companies that operate it. The Asian facing site also went on to reiterate that it does not accept bets from the United States.
