BREAKING: Mafia Gambling Ring Run Out of Borgata Poker Room Busted

BorgataA mob-linked sports gambling ring run out of the Borgata poker room in Atlantic City was busted today. A total of 18 people were arrested, including four with mob ties out of Philadelphia.

Six of the 18 were Borgata employees.

The Associated Press reports:

“If the charges are proven, the ring would be among the most serious mob incursions into the Atlantic City casino industry since the first casino opened in 1978. Fear of organized crime prompted New Jersey to institute tight controls when legal gambling began, but regulations have been loosened over the years.”

The Borgata is the same casino where card cheating expert Steve Forte was arrested this past July for using some high-tech ploy involving observing hole cards during a live video feed.
