Internet Sweepstakes Gambling in Columbus

Published 7:00 pm Thursday, June 11, 2009

Dunns Columbus Commons is now home to what appears to be a hi-tech WI-FI Internet access point.&bsp; In practice, it&39;s an internet-based gambling hall.&bsp; Yes, Wi-Fi access is available ($5 per 1/2 hour).&bsp; But the shop is lined with dozens on brand-new flat-screen/keyboard combinations, a number of which were turned on when I entered, and were promoting a number of &39;sweapstakes&39; that could be entered.In my opinion, this is nothing but touble for us and our community.&bsp;If you need&bsp;Wi-Fi in Columbus, visit McDonalds, or better yet, CCC Coffee Shop at the edge of town.&bsp;I have no idea if this gambling hall is&bsp;illegal, or just the creation of snakes crawling through&bsp;loopholes in the law, but I know nothing good can come from it&39;s presence in our community.Mr. Dunn, where are you?&bsp;&bsp;
