Illegal Bookmaking Arrests In Las Vegas
Illegal Bookmaking Arrests In Las Vegas

AIR DATE: October 30, 2012

Twenty-five people including eight in Las Vegas were arrested last week on charges of bookmaking and money laundering. They allegedly ran illegal sports betting sites off-shore. Nevada has a special interest in this as the Gaming Control Board investigates whether several Las Vegas casinos were involved. The sportsbook director of the M Resort, a vice-president of the sportsbook operator Cantor Gaming, was among those arrested. We look at what crimes authorities allege took place and how they involve Nevada.
