Perhaps Not a goes by in the gaming universe without someone in a position of power somewhere being scrutinized by the feds anymore, it seems day. Now Cantor Gaming CEO Lee Amaitis is under the spotlight, according to the The Wall Street Journal, on the coat tail of colleague Michael Colbert Cantor’s now released vice president of risk management who pled guilty month that is just last knowingly accepting illegal wagers.

Parent company Cantor Fitzgerald was quick to deny the rumor, however, saying in an issued statement: ‘We feel compelled to address this reckless and rumor that is baseless. The notion that Lee Amaitis is a target of federal prosecutors or that he participated in unlawful bookmaking is baseless and false.’
Of course, Anthony Weiner also vehemently denied he was still sexting, therefore there you go in terms of denials of rumors.
Accepting wagers from ‘runners’ people who destination wagers for an operation is illegal in Nevada, where Cantor Gaming is headquartered.
It could definitely behoove the sports book company to distance themselves from any further insinuations of illegalities, given that Amaitis just attended opening ceremonies for a new Cantor Gaming competition and activities books at the Atlantis Casino on Paradise Island within the Bahamas. The company now has eight sports books in Las Vegas, operates the Palms Casino poker space, and provides mobile betting apps, combined with the new Atlantis book, that is their first run outside of Nevada.
