FBI to Step Up Sportsbetting Busts

The United States Federal Bureau of Investigation has revealed that they are planning to begin a new drive to crack down on illegal sports betting in the United States, particularly rings operating on the Internet.

The new drive was revealed in FBI communications, with no specifics on the stings being announced other than the involvement of other federal entities. The feds believe that many online sportsbooks are linked with organized crime rings.

The news comes after a string of successful prosecutions by the United States against sportsbetting rings, wherein operators have been subject to lengthy jail times and stiff financial fines.
