Kentucky Seizes Online Gambling Domains From Dead Man

Doleplex Holdings has lost two of its online casino domain names to the state of Kentucky in a seizure. HighRollersLounge.com was transferred over to the commonwealth on Tuesday. Earlier in the day, LuckyPyramidCasino.com was taken over as well. Both are connected with Crystalisle Management Ltd and the more well known Crystal Palace Casino, which was also off line.

But the group of online casinos itself were apparently shut down prior to any actions by the state of Kentucky as it appears now.

The individual who owned the said casinos is unable to fight the state of Kentucky.  That's because he is dead.  Warren Cloud passed away from a sudden heart attack this summer. Real Time Gaming ran the ventures but many customers complained of not being paid.

It was unclear if another party had taken over the domain names and voluntarily turned them over to the commonwealth.

The casino group had been licensed by the Kahnawake Mohawks out of Canada. They were based out of Cypress.

CORRECTION:  The domain assigned to the Commonwealth of Kentucky was HighRollersLounge.com, not HighRollersCasino.com as previously reported.
