100 Gambling Devices Seized in Genesee County
It seems that Michigan online casinos aren’t the only ones in the Wolverine State’s gambling industry making headlines this week.
In Genessee County, MI, 100 gambling devices were seized in Davison and Burton. Authorities were tipped off that these machines were being operated illegally, and they seized 100 gambling devices and nearly $30,000 in profits related to the machines.
Two storefronts were involved in the illegal gaming machines, The State Road Spot and the Bristol Spot. Both were being investigated by the Michigan Department of Attorney General and Michigan Gaming Control Board.
It’s expected that some illegal gambling activities will surface, so both the Attorney General and Michigan Gaming Control Board have been working diligently to ensure such activity will be handled swiftly.
This raid happened only weeks before three other suspects in an illegal gambling operation in Flint, MI, are set to be sentenced.
The state’s gambling tax revenue is used to pay for programs for public schools, meaning such activity could directly affect school budgets.
