The modern gaming industry presents complex issues regarding the rules, regulations and ultimate legality of certain types of gambling. While state lotteries, off track betting, and authorized casinos present a model of legal gambling, the internet and off-shore betting businesses involve mutifaceted questions and concerns. Both state and federal prosecutors actively pursue cases against individuals and entities engaged in the gaming industry.

In other instances, prosecutors have gone after off-shore gaming operations or on-line poker businesses.
