North California’s Citrus house casino is investigating an allegation of cheating. The gambling operations at the venue were temporarily shut down and all live poker broadcasts deterred as the casino launched an investigation into the cheating allegations.
The investigation was launched after a regular visitor to the casino accused others of cheating during a live-streamed game.
The casino’s gambling hall features “Stones Live,” where it broadcasts poker games three days a week for fans to watch.
A casino spokesperson explained the situation in a tweet: “ We temporarily halted all broadcasts from Stones. We also have, as a result, halted the use of the RFID playing cards. We have taken these steps proactively while we conduct a multi-faceted investigation into every element of these games.”
Earlier this year in July, in a crackdown on illegal casinos the Kern County Sheriff’s Office raided an illegal casino in South Bakersfield. The Sheriff’s Office seized several unlawful gambling machines and also firearms.
The deputies also found four firearms, along with 3,000 rounds of ammunition. Two of the firearms located by deputies were reported stolen.
