A new investigation into who owns Del Lago Casino and Resort in Palm Beach, Florida may shed light on a much larger picture. It may not be as sensational as the stories of the late, great Steve McQueen and a stripper in a bikini on the casino’s famous lap, but it is still a story that should be investigated.
When the casino opened, its success was predicated on the fact that it had the largest indoor swimming pool in the United States, and that was because the owners had gotten a large loan from an investor. The loan was used to finance the addition of the pool, and it was then the pool was used for entertainment. When the casino first opened, there were no lap dancers in the pool, but that is not the only place where lap dancing takes place. Many women that would have hired lap dancers for entertainment also paid the owner of the pool to use it as a male strip club.
What is really interesting about this is that the owner of Del Lago is a convicted felon. The casino used his money to get loans from investors and then used the money from the investors to finance the addition of the lap pool. However, the casino was caught on tape, and when the owner of the pool was arrested and the videos were shown to the police, the whole story was revealed.
According to reports, one of the investors in the casino was convicted of using cocaine while gambling at the casino. He was able to get away with the crimes because he claimed that he was not in the casino, and that he had taken a trip to Las Vegas instead. However, the video that was obtained by the police showed that the man in the videos, and the people that were being served by the man in the video were all at the Del Lago Casino and Resort at the same time.
The owners of the Del Lago Casino and Resort face serious charges of money laundering and tax evasion. If these charges are proven, the owners could end up spending the rest of their lives in prison. This is not something that is likely to happen, but they will be held accountable. One thing that is likely to happen though is that the casino and resort will be forced to close its doors.
One thing is for sure though, if the Las Vegas strip club is anything to go by, and if the lap pool that was used as a strip club is anything to go by, then it appears that Del Lago is indeed a scam. The owners of this casino will be held responsible and will be held accountable for using their money to pay the loan that they received, which then went toward funding the adding of the pool that was used for entertainment.
