BALTIMORE (AP) -- Federal prosecutors have shut down the sports betting site Bodog and announced indictments of four Canadians for illegal gambling that generated more than $100 million in winnings.
Prosecutors said Tuesday that the company's domain name Bodog.com has been seized. The indictments were handed down Feb. 22 and unveiled Tuesday in Baltimore.
The indictment names four owners or operators of the site. They are Calvin Ayre, James Philip, David Ferguson and Derrick Maloney.
Prosecutors said sports gambling is illegal in Maryland. They alleged the company advertised to attract gamblers to the website and paid out at least $100 million in winnings to gamblers in Maryland and elsewhere from 2005 to 2012.
