    Action 24/7 cannot accept bets while its license is suspended indefinitely. But that isn’t stopping the embattled operator from trying to give out free ones.

    The company apparently offered its customer database a chance at winning a free $50 bet Tuesday evening.

    The TN sportsbook operator was suspended last week for multiple incidents of suspected credit card fraud and money laundering. The company filed suit against the Tennessee Education Lottery [TEL] Monday for immediate reinstatement of its suspended license.

    The TN sportsbook licensure case [was scheduled to] be heard at 2 p.m. Wednesday.

    TEL and Action 24/7 representative did not respond to requests for comment Tuesday night.
