Betting on pre-determined events

Some staffers at CBS have been found guilty of betting online and making big money on the outcomes of Survivor.

Isn’t it illegal to bet on an event that has already happened?

I see the site is HQ’d in Costa Rica. Could the CBS guys still be incriminated for breaking an American law?
