FourFourSeconds ago we reported on a major casino owner who recently launched a new online gambling platform, one that allowed him to claim up to 10% of all the casino winnings in the state of New Jersey.
It wasn’t the only major online casino operator to take advantage of this loophole, as other sites were quick to follow suit.
Now it looks like that loophole has been closed for good.
We’ve now learned that the New Jersey Gaming Commission (NJGC) has issued an official notice that it has shut down all the online gambling sites in the State of New York.
This includes CasinoGames.com and CasinoBettingInfo.com, which are both owned by Andrew Luck and his family, along with other online gambling operators in the city of Buffalo.
The commission has said that it is looking to shut down sites that are “fraudulently or fraudulently obtaining, or knowingly accepting, funds in any manner,” as well as those that “continue to conduct business in this manner.”
Luck and Luck’s company are not being charged with any wrongdoing, but they were required to register as a gambling promoter under New York state law.
The state has not yet issued an arrest warrant, and Luck and others involved in the gaming industry have yet to be charged with a crime.
The move comes after several years of growing criticism of the state’s gaming industry, which is one of the largest in the country.
In 2014, the New York State Gaming Commission closed down more than 1,500 casinos, which resulted in a net loss of $1.3 billion.
The commission also said that the industry was too small and too fragmented to prosecute individuals who used online casinos to commit crimes, and many online casinos have been shut down due to fraud.
While the commission has already shut down several online gambling websites, its move to shut them down is notable in that the state has previously done so.
Last month, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that there was a growing trend in the industry to not prosecute people who use online casinos and that New York would be the first state to do so.
The New York Times reported that in 2014, Cuomo said online gambling was “not the problem” and that the gambling commission had done a “very good job of shutting down illegal online gambling,” but that he was “a little worried about people using it to launder money or to larceny.”
