One of the largest and most popular online sports betting and casino sites, Bovada.lv, had been down since Thursday morning and players were directed to Twitter for updates.  But antsy bettors still wanted to place their wagers, especially with a ton of College Basketball, NFL and Bowl games upcoming. 


Just after 6 pm ET, Bovada's website appeared to be back up and running.  Great news for customers looking to place bets on Saturday night's game.

The problems appeared to be going from bad to worse by Saturday morning as customers were hopeful to get down on the day's College Basketball slate, which was mostly lost out on. 

Saturday morning players were greeted with the following 504 error:


Some customers were reportedly told by agents that the site could be down until Monday if not longer.

Bovada reps insisted the site issues were in the process of being resolved.

The speculation is that Bovada was been hacked, but the company insisted this was nothing more than an internal malfunction.
