Michigan police raid illegal poker game with topless dealers

When the Grand Rapids Michigan police went to break up the illegal poker game taking place in a downtown hotel they had little idea that even more vices were being enabled by the promoters. The game featured not only illegal gambling, but topless dealers who were receiving tips for more than their dealing abilities.

According to police –who apparently took in the scene for some time to notice all of these activities!—the dealers would perform “Aerobic Exercises, play Twister, and offered Jell-O shots for tips.”

The promoters made their first error by publicly advertising the game –minus the extra-curricular activities—around the area. Michigan law makes all gambling illegal sans charity events, or at one of the states licensed casinos.

In all 20 gamblers, and four dealers were taken into custody and are set to appear in court on January 26th: No word yet if a few tournament stops will take a cue from the event in hopes of boosting player turnout.
