SC Native American tribe expected to cut ties with casino partner amid federal scrutiny

Catawba Nation members are considering cutting ties with Sky Boat, the company that helps operate its casino. Federal gaming regulators have threatened the tribe with fines and the temporary closure of its North Carolina gaming hall. Two cousins running against each other to succeed the long-time Chief William "Bill" Harris plan to mount a campaign to cut ties. If a motion to drop Skyboat wins a majority of support from members at a weekend meeting, it could be the end of the Nation's business dealings with Wallace Cheves. He was named in a Wall Street Journal report calling into question arrangements between his companies and families of S.C. politicians.

The Rise of Mobile Gambling Is Leaving People Ruined and Unable to Quit

Gambling problems are getting harder to detect and treat. The rise of mobile gambling has made it easier for people to gamble in their own home without their loved ones knowing. One Chicago man lost his job early in the pandemic and needed extra income to support his family. He used his checking account and credit cards to feed his online gambling habit. Nick, 21, from California, used to play online poker as a teenager. He was introduced to gambling by his cousin. His cousin introduced him to legal online sports gambling. It was difficult to stop because the games were so accessible. They were easy to access. People with gambling problems less often exhibit physical symptoms compared to people with substance abuse issues.

Florida regulators warn Jacksonville officials on proposal to allow "adult arcades" over illegal gambling concerns

The Florida Gaming Control Commission has warned that a proposal to legalize adult arcades in Jacksonville could be illegal. The proposal was filed by City Council member Garrett Dennis. He will defer the proposal until the office of General Counsel Jason Teal tells him if it contains illegal gambling. In 2013, an investigation led to 57 illegal betting arrests and a $300 million racketeering and money-laundering scheme involving the Allied Veterans of the World. Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll resigned because of her connections to them. Three years ago, Jacksonville banned what it called “simulated gambling devices” after labeling them a public nuisance.
