A Washington based man who ran the FantasyThunder betting site is reported to be under arrest for operating an illegal online casino betting site. The website has been operating for nearly ten years allowing players to place bets on a variety of games and sports. Unfortunately, this year the website has gone under and has been unable to payout winnings what resulted in the arrest of the man in the charge of the betting site, David B. Watkins.
In spite of the fact that online gambling industry is illegal in the state of Washington, Watkins was operating the online betting site and taking bets from all over the world on a wide variety of sports. Recently, Watkins has notified players that the site is illegal and is to be shut down, and there is no money to either reimburse players or payout winnings.
Players’ complaints have drawn attention of Washington authorities to the illegal betting site. Players are expected to testify against Watkins now.
