Great Gambling Gangsters!

Even with the all the changes made to the landscape of casinos, gambling and poker over the last 30 years, it's nice to see that things haven't changed as much as we thought.

It seems that an illegal sports gambling ring has been discovered operating out of the Borgata poker room in Atlantic City. The cool part (cool since I live far away in Canada and never plan on visiting the Borgata or New Jersey) is that four of the persons involved in the gambling ring have mafia ties.

It was only a matter of time before organized crime started to show up in the casino and gambling market again. I'd say that this news surprises me but I always thought that the mafia ran Vegas and Atlantic City anyway. Then again, I've seen the movie Casino quite a few times so I probably have a skewed view of reality.

Thanks to Wicked Chops Poker and The Associated Press for the breaking news.

You talkin' to me? We really need to get away from associating the act of gambling with the old fashioned mafia.
