Cantor Gaming CEO Under Possible Investigation by Feds

Perhaps Not a day goes by in the gaming world without someone in a place of power someplace being scrutinized by the feds anymore, it appears. 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 whom pled guilty just last month to knowingly accepting illegal 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 rumor that is baseless. The notion that Lee Amaitis is a target of federal prosecutors or he participated in illegal bookmaking is baseless and false.’
Of course, Anthony Weiner also vehemently denied he was still sexting, so there you go in terms of denials of rumors.
Accepting wagers from ‘runners’ people whom spot wagers for an operation is illegal in Nevada, where Cantor Gaming is headquartered.
It might certainly behoove the sports book company to distance themselves from any further insinuations of illegalities, given that Amaitis just attended opening ceremonies for the new Cantor Gaming competition and sports books at the Atlantis Casino on Paradise Island into the Bahamas. The company now has eight sports publications in Las Vegas, runs the Palms Casino poker room, and offers mobile betting apps, along with the new casino-online-australia.net/ Atlantis guide, that will be their first run outside of Nevada.
