Firm Benefitting From DC Sports Betting Has No Employees or Execs

The Washington Post reports that the Greek company Intralot, which last month received a $215 million contract to bring sports gambling to the nation’s capital and to continue running its lottery, says more than half the work will go to a small D.C. firm — a condition that helped the gaming giant win the no-bid contract.

So which firm is set to receive more than half the work?

Veterans Services Corp will “perform the ENTIRE subcontract with its own organization and resources".

But how?

From the Washington Post:

Veterans Services appears to have no employees, according to interviews and District records. Until recently, the company’s website touted executives who didn’t work there. The man who leads it, Emmanuel Bailey, is a Maryland resident who is employed by an Intralot subsidiary, public records and company financial statements show.

It appears that neighboring Maryland refused to take the bait when Veterans Services sought to run that state’s lottery.

Maryland’s lottery director, Gordon Medenica, recommended against the proposal during a 2017 meeting of the Maryland’s Board of Public Works, saying the joint venture’s structure “kept changing on us.”

“We asked several times about who would be responsible for what,” he said, and Intralot “presented us with a lot of suggestions that they would be responsible for everything.”

The Washington Post covers this story in detail here
