The Gambling Commission has ordered Macau Casino in Washington State to pay it $1.25 million for covering the costs of the investigation. The authorities were inquiring about the casino for money laundering and loansharking allegations at the gaming venues of the company.
The Commission wanted to cover the costs of its investigation into the casino and deter its peers from engaging in similar activities. The reimbursement is related to a 2016 inquiry into the casino after some complaints about money laundering and loansharking against the company.
