Perhaps Not a goes by in the gaming universe without someone in a position of power somewhere being scrutinized by the feds anymore, it seems day. Now Cantor Gaming CEO Lee Amaitis is under the spotlight, according to the The Wall Street Journal, on the coating tail of colleague Michael Colbert Cantor’s now released vice president of danger management who pled guilty just last month to knowingly accepting unlawful bets.
Denial through the Top
Parent business Cantor Fitzgerald was fast to deny the rumor, however, saying in an issued statement: ‘We feel compelled to address this reckless and baseless rumor. The notion that Lee Amaitis is a target of federal prosecutors or that he participated in unlawful bookmaking is false and baseless.’
Of course, Anthony Weiner also vehemently denied he was still sexting, therefore there you go regarding denials of rumors.
Accepting wagers from ‘runners’ people who place wagers for an operation is illegal in Nevada, where Cantor Gaming is headquartered.
It might truly behoove the sports book company to distance themselves from any further insinuations of illegalities, given that Amaitis just attended opening ceremonies for the Cantor that is new Gaming and activities books at the Atlantis Casino on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. The company now has eight sports publications in Las Vegas, runs the Palms Casino poker space, and offers mobile betting apps, along with the Atlantis that is new book which can be their first run outside of Nevada.
