Michigan Shuts Down Eight Internet Gambling Cafes

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

Late last week Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette ordered the closure of eight internet cafes which were suspected of offering illegal internet gambling disguised as sweepstakes.

In a statement Schuette said: "Internet sweepstakes cafes that permit illegal gaming are nothing more than unregulated pop-up casinos and consumers should steer clear. We will continue to work with the Michigan State Police and the Michigan Gaming Control Board to shut down these and any other illegal gambling operations.”
