By michael
Portuguese authorities will probe online gaming company BetandWin.com Interactive Entertainment AG's sponsorship of the country's national soccer league after doubts were raised over its legality.

Vienna-based BetandWin.com signed a four-year accord with the league Aug. 18 to put its logo on uniforms of the 36 top clubs and rename the league the betandwin.com league.

State-run gaming monopoly Santa Casa de Misericordia objected, saying that online betting companies are operating without a license in Portugal and to promote them is illegal.

Laurentino Dias, Portugalís Secretary of State for Youth and Sports, will today refer the case to the Attorney Generalís Office

BETandWIN already has partnerships with several sporting organisations, including soccer clubs Barcelona and Juventus, and is a sponsor of the national sides of Hungary and Germany.
