On Wednesday, the Seven Mile Casino card room was allowed to reopen their doors after being shut down due to a federal raid. The venue was shut down for close to three weeks before being allowed to resume operations.
It was on December 9th that agents of the FBI raided the casino and card club, the very same day another club was raided. Twenty five people were named in indictments announced by the United States Attorney, all in connection with an alleged scheme to launder millions of dollars via the poker games.
To be able to reopen, the card clubs had to stop paying their current shareholders and partners, plus hire a manager who was not currently working with corporations named in the indictment. The Seven Mile Casino operated with investigators as they needed their over 300 employees to be able to get back to work to be able provide for their families.
