Magnolia House Casino in Rancho Cordova was order to close its doors.

“The card room will remain closed unless it is able to demonstrate that it has addressed its funding issues," the Attorney General's office said in a statement issued this week.

The California Gambling Control Commission also received a complaint that contains five allegations against the card room and majority shareholder, Thomas B. Sheridan.

    Underfunded chips-in-use account
    Use of third-party and patron funds in operations
    Failuring to provide Information and documents requested by the director
    Failing to reveal a fact material to qualification
    Unqualified for continued licensure

Sheridan has yet to comment.
