After multiple indictments against 34 personnel were handed down to Legends Sports, also referred to as Legendz (betlegends.eu) the company has made the decision to shut down to their customers in the United States and across the world.
Editor Note: One of the most legitimate and popular poker sites for real money and available to all 50 states is www.Betonline.ag. (verified main sponsor)
While the sportsbook is in the process of transferring player balances to a new website. Note: A recent press release confirmed it will be WagerWeb. Ex-bettors at Legends will have a 5X rollover requirement on their funds. The site we currently recommend as an alternative is www.Bovada.lv which is an all inclusive gambling site with an A+ rating by us and many other betting review portals.
Players will have access to their funds but the new sportsbook will be issuing a rollover requirement so that people do not instantly cash out. The rumors were that initially it would be a 10X rollover requirement on balances, but this has been reduced to 5X. It’s not something bettors are happy with but it beats the player balances from disappearing and is said to be a must for the players balances to remain safe.
While the owner of www.Bovada.lv has never been indicted, it’s rumored associated company “Bodog” has been indicted but still performs properly and under no restrictions from the US government. The one good thing about this company is that they have gone through much scrutiny from the US government and continue to be a powerhouse in North America with almost zero obstruction.
The indictments is also calling for over 1 billion in funds to be forfeited from the indicted of which “The Greek” sportsbook website owner was one.
