Agency: Edina man, brother running illegal remote TikTok bookie business


January 23, 2023

In what a state agency is calling a first, gambling enforcement investigators say they have sniffed out an illegal betting duo roaming Twin Cities-area casinos and for a fee playing slots for gamblers who watch on a TikTok livestream in hopes of striking it rich.

An agent with the Minnesota Alcohol and Gambling Enforcement Division disclosed in a court filing this week that two men have been running their remote bookie business while at the Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake and the Treasure Island Resort & Casino just outside Red Wing in violation of a law that prohibits placing bets on behalf of someone else.

Nicole Roddy, a spokeswoman for the agency, acknowledged the ongoing investigation and added that "prior to that case, we have had no other cases of that nature reported to us."
