IS DOJ Colluding with Casino Industry?

31 May 2011 by admin

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a wild conspiracy theory here on, so I thought I would share one that has been making its rounds in the office. Coworkers have been jokingly talking about a conspiracy between Realtime Gaming (RTG) and the U.S. Department of Justice.

While several online gambling operators have been specifically targeted by the Justice Department and several casino software developers have gotten spooked and left the market, RTG seems comfortable. Microgaming was already more or less out of the American market, but they pulled out completely after Black Friday. Vegas Technology got spooked recently and it seems that every day we are learning about a new gambling website that is leaving the American market. Meanwhile, RTG seems comfortable, almost as if they are immune from prosecution…

For the record, we respect RTG and don’t actually think that they are doing anything wrong. However, it’s an interesting question to ponder. What if one of the big casino companies is colluding with the government? What if there is a deal with the government where the DOJ eliminates their competition in exchange for big kickbacks under the table? Certainly there is a long history of the government having similar deals with other industries. Is it possible that’s what is going on with online gambling? Of course. Is it likely? I don’t know.

It would almost make recent events seem to make sense. There is no federal law banning online gambling, but the feds don’t like the activity because it doesn’t benefit them. Company X goes to the feds and says “hey, how about we work out a deal? I’ll pay you good money and in exchange, you get rid of my competition. To get rid of them, I’ll tell you all of the complex inner workings of the industry that you need to know.”

Again, that is probably not what is happening. It’s just a joking conspiracy in the office. However, given how corrupt the Justice Department is, it wouldn’t surprise me if that conspiracy turned out to be true.
