Gambling911.com can now report exclusively that the US Attorney's Office out of Maryland in conjunction with the US Attorney Office out of New York and Louisiana State law enforcement in addition to US Customers have been investigating Golden Casino, an online casino group.

Agents posing as individuals looking to join the online casino were routinely told they were not permitted to play at the casino from their said jurisdiction.  Eventually, one of the customer service representatives allowed an agent to join the casino according to documents.

As part of the investigation, which commenced last August, law enforcement agents also met with US-based customers of Golden Casino. 

The task force overseeing the investigation into this activity reported that small banks were also approached and convinced that processing for online gambling ventures was "not illegal" under current laws.

It is unclear as to why US Customs officials are involved in this matter.

Sources close to Gambling911.com have advised that more developments are likely soon in this ongoing investigation. 

The Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act (UIGEA) will be cited in this matter and it is the first time the new law (passed in October 2006) has been mentioned as part of an ongoing US Government investigation.

Last month, a New York Circuit Court found in favor of Costigan Media, the parent company of Gambling911.com, in its Motion to Intervene and be granted permission to obtain information related to ongoing investigations into online gambling including upcoming indictments, specifically related to the New York US Attorney's Office actions.  Certain names of individuals and other entities would remain concealed as part of the decision provided there were no indictments handed down, at which time all names of individuals and entities would then be released for publication on the Gambling911.com website.
