Cantor Gaming To Pay Fine

CG Technology Settles With Nevada Gaming Control Board

LAS VEGAS (AP) — CG Technology, formerly Cantor Gaming, has agreed to pay Nevada gambling regulators $5.5 million to settle a complaint regarding illegal sports betting.

The settlement, announced on Monday, will be the largest in state history.

Earlier this month, the Nevada Gaming Control Board filed an 18-count complaint against the company. Regulators said Cantor failed to adequately supervise its former sports book director, who was involved in a nationwide illegal sports betting ring.

Michael Colbert, formerly vice president of race and sports risk management, was arrested in 2012 and pleaded guilty to participating in a sports betting conspiracy.

Regulators said the company’s lack of supervision over Colbert violated state gambling rules.
