Anadarko Tech Company Busted for Gambling Software

ANADARKO, Okla. (AP) — An Oklahoma technology company owner accused of supplying illegal gaming software to outlets in Florida has been arrested in connection with a multistate gambling scheme.

Attorney General Scott Pruitt's office says 37-year-old Chase Egan Burns appeared in Caddo County District Court Tuesday as a fugitive from Florida. He's charged in Florida with racketeering, conspiracy and multiple counts of the sale or possession of slot machines, conducting a lottery and keeping a gambling house.

Court records indicate bond was set at $500,000 for Burns. He's due back in court on April 12 for an extradition hearing. Records do not list a defense attorney for Burns.

Burns is the owner of International Internet Technologies in Anadarko. Prosecutors allege Burns earned more than $290 million on the gaming software and units.
