Black Market Bets: The Mob and Illegal Gambling in America
Las Vegas is a strictly controlled and monitored gambling mecca with casinos playing by the rules. However, illegal wagering is still a multimillion-dollar business, especially online, and organized crime is heavily involved. Illegal gambling is fraught with cheated customers and unpaid taxes, not to mention that its earnings often fund other criminal enterprises. Organized crime expert Jay Albanese says the Mob is still active in illegal gambling rackets, and federal law enforcement is struggling to keep up.
The Mob Museum is hosting a program giving participants an intimate opportunity to learn from Albanese, a renowned expert on organized crime and illegal gambling. Educate yourself on what is happening in the ever-changing gambling landscape outside Nevada.
