Personal Account Banned- No Reason Given- Legal sports betting issue?

Hey Guys,

 

So I've been using PayPal for four years. I use it to pay family and friends as well as receive. This year, with sports betting online becoming legal in Pennsylvania, my home state where I live, I have been using it to both deposit and withdraw through several of the well known betting apps. I have moved thousands both to and from my account (including a 5-figure jackpot won on online slots) and never had an issue. Today, however, I received about 100 from a withdrawal on Unibet. Nine minutes later, PayPal emailed me saying my account is banned permanently, balance locked for 180 days, etc. 

 

Can anyone explain this to me? My account is fully verified. No reason was given, but this uptick in money seems to be the only thing I can think of that has been different?
