Coljuegos confiscated 2,000 illegal slot and betting machine

Colombian gambling regulator Coljuegos with the support of federal police confiscated 2,000 illegal slot and betting machines which were targeted that operated in seven establishments in the city of Bogotá and in the towns of the departments of Cundinamarca, Boyacá, Santander and Norte de Santander.

Pérez Hidalgo, President of Coljuegos, said that the taxes avoided by the illegal operations could have “financed the subsidised health system and served more than 107,000 Colombians”. He also added that a total of “2,534 illegal elements of games of luck and chance” had been withdrawn so far this year. Slot machines and roulette games were also included in the clampdown.

33 people had been arrested for operating games of luck and chance deemed to be illegal, with nine judicial proceedings having been initiated.
