Another 'sweepstakes' electronic gaming location raided

This time last month a "sweepstakes" Internet-based fundraising-gambling location in Bluffton was raided by police, and now a Hardeeville location has also been raided.

24 computers were also seized in this raid.

The Island Packet has a nice written report (read that here).

Also raided in Beaufort County were two smaller-scale locations in June and July, in Beaufort and Port Royal, respectively. 

It's worth reminding that the grey area in the law is still pretty prominent and South Carolina is only gearing up tamp down the flames of the "online sweepstakes" — and North Carolina has been fighting that one for years.
