A South Carolina court recently handed down a conviction against Bubba Technology Group, LLC. The U.S. Attorney for the District of South Carolina has issued a press statement alleging that the gaming corporation is providing slot machine games to bettors in violation of federal law.
Bubba Technology Group, LLC entered a guilty plea during the trial. The corporation was given a year of probation and has to give up any estimated illicit earnings by U.S. District Judge Donald C. Coggins. The District Attorney’s Office in South Carolina reported that they had seized ten illicit slot machines. The anticipated unlawful proceeds of $367,000 will also be forfeited to the state. Bubba Technology Group-affiliated gambling enterprises were fined a total of $670,000 by local authorities.
Alan Wilson, the state’s attorney general, has stated that illicit games cannot be owned, distributed, or operated under federal law in South Carolina. Alan Wilson has called for rigorous enforcement of this regulation.
The state’s local governments cooperate closely to combat unlawful gaming.
Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) are supervising a joint investigation by local law enforcement agencies into the criminal activities of Bubba Technology Group. These agencies include the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office, the Greenville County Drug Enforcement Unit, the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office, the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, and the South Carolina Immigration Enforcement Unit.
The investigation uncovered evidence linking Bubba Technology Group, also known as Fish Machines, to the distribution of illegal slot machines to many gambling operations in South Carolina. You can place a bet on one of these slot machines and then cash out your winnings at a nearby bar or store.
The investigation’s lead special agents gave courtroom testimony during the trial. Mark Keel, who ran SLED, and Ronnie Martinez, who ran HIS throughout North and South Carolina, were the two men in charge. These agents testified that local authorities are cooperating to identify and prosecute illegal gambling operators.
