Colombian Watchdog Issues Apology to Licensed Casino In Between Crackdown

The gambling authority for Colombia, Coljuegos, has released a statement on the “wrong conduct” that was found at Casino Dallas in Cartagena. The finding came to light early in May while conducting surveillance.

Coljuegos reiterated that Casino Dallas had a current license and complete authority to offer gaming services, but he would not go into specifics. The proprietors of the business, Antonio Chaurra Parra and Lucas Betancur Salazar, received an apology from the regulator. President Marco Emilio Hincapié reaffirmed Coljuegos’ commitment to averting similar mistakes in the course of next monitoring activities.

“We underline our unwavering commitment to prevent the recurrence of such inappropriate conduct during subsequent inspections targeting illegal operations,” stated Hincapié.

Concurrent Crackdown on Illegal Gambling

Early this month, a larger offensive against illegal gaming was underway when the event at Casino Dallas occurred. Coljuegos declared that more than a thousand pieces of equipment linked to illicit gaming had been destroyed and issued a warning about upcoming nationwide enforcement actions.

Hincapié commended Coljuegos for their unwavering efforts to stop illicit gaming, emphasizing the benefits to public health and the significance of following the law.
