The Attorney General’s Office within the state of Utah states that their investigators have recently seized a lot of evidence as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash from more than five hundred coin game machines also known as slot machines that were located all across the state that are in violation of the gaming ban that is currently in Utah.
Leo Lucey who is the Chief Investigations Officer states that the attorney general’s office as well as many other law enforcement offices served multiple search warrants this past week on more than one hundred and thirty mini-marts as well as other types of stores that were located all across the state that have these types of machines. Lucey stated that these types of machines were typically coin pusher machines. A coin pusher machine is the machine that a player inserts a coin with very high hopes that it will push other coins, cash, and other prizes off of a shelf that is on the inside. They have also included a type of slot machine where a player purchases an access card, uses this card to play the game then can redeem the card for a payout after they have finished playing.
Leo Lucey the Chief Investigations Officer has also stated that at this time there has been no actual arrest during the confiscations of these illegal machines, but they are still within an ongoing investigation.
