Georgia law enforcement raid gambling machines  August 1, 2015 – 01:06 pm

A technician opens a coin-operated amusement machine at a Duluth gas station in July. Nearly 6,000 Georgia gas stations, convenience stores, Laundromats and American Legion posts - as well as ventures like Hariz USA, Lucky Latin Games and Nickle Pumper - now have what the state calls coin-operated amusement machines and lawmakers described as games of skill. As of July 1st, the machines are monitored by the state Lottery Corporation. BOB ANDRES / BANDRES@AJC.COMThe Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced Wednesday another sweep of businesses for allegedly violating the state’s commercial gaming laws.

More than 75 GBI agents and local police officers served search warrants on 15 businesses and one home in Macon, LaGrange, Savannah, Warner Robbins and Sasser, a tiny town outside of Albany. The sting targeted alleged misuse of coin-operated amusement (COAM) machines — machines sometimes mislabeled as video poker machines and often located in convenience stores.

State law allows the games, but jackpots can only be redeemed for store merchandise, gas or lottery tickets.

Sudama Resorts, a Forest Park-based company, is the master license holder for all of the machines involved in alleged cash payouts.

“Undercover operations revealed cash payouts were taking place at over 25 percent of locations statewide where Sudama Resorts, Inc. is contracted to place COAM machines, ” the GBI said in a release.

An official with the GBI said he did not have a total on the number of arrests but said multiple arrests are in the works.

Sudama was formed in 2003 and has about 1, 650 machines licensed by the state. The license holders are Sandip and Rohini Patel, according to records examined by The AJC.

In the wake of the raids, the Bibb County district attorney announced Wednesday he was filing a racketeering lawsuit against Sudama, The Macon Telegraph reports.

The COAM industry has existed in the shadows of Georgia law for more than a decade since Gov. Roy Barnes attempted to outlaw the machines. Two years ago, state lawmakers, urged by gambling lobbyists, passed legislation regulating the industry and moving it under the Lottery, which they said would force out bad actors.
