On this Tuesday, we focus on three more illegal casinos we have chips for.
Bridge Street Club:
This was another illegal gaming operation located in Hot Springs, Arkansas. According to the Texarkana Gazette, “Was more of a sawdust joint.” It was also a place where you could make a wager on any horse race taking place in the United States. You could play any major casino game here. It closed in 1967.
Located in Toledo, Ohio. Throughout the 1930s and 1940s, there were many illegal gaming opportunities in Ohio. It was opened during the years of World War II. Law enforcement invaded the joint on numerous occasions before it closed. It also had the name of Hollywood Theatre Café.
Located in Newport, Kentucky. It was a three story building with both a casino and dining hall. It was closed in 1961. Organized crime members Pete Schmidt and Charles Lester raided this place. It was run at one time by mobster Red Masterson. He received control of the establishment for burning down the illegal casino called Beverly Hills.
