NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 9, 2020--

Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against 500.com Limited (“500.com” or the “Company”) (NYSE: WBAI) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased 500.com securities between April 27, 2018 and December 31, 2019, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Such investors are encouraged to join this case by visiting the firm’s site: www.bgandg.com/wbai.

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) 500.com executives and consultants engaged in a bribery scheme with Japanese officials in an effort to gain favor in a bid to run an upcoming Japanese casino resort; (2) consequently, 500.com was in violation of Japanese anti-bribery laws and its Code of Ethics; and (3) as a result, defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
