U.S. Attorney Catherine Hanaway reached a settlement Thursday with online gambling company BetOnSports PLC which permanently bars the London-based company from accepting any bets from the United States.

The settlement ends a massive civil case Hanaway filed this summer.

The settlement also requires BetOnSports to open a toll-free telephone service to inform bettors how they can reclaim wagers pending before the suit was filed.
