Casinos Collect $800,000 in Child Support


Louisiana Casinos have collected more than $800,000 in child support.

The Louisana Department of Children and Family Services reported that non-custodial parents around the state owe more than 1.2 billion dollars in child support.

If gamblers win more than 1,200, casinos run their names through a database to see if they owe child support.

Because of the casino interception law, which was signed in 2010, more than $806,000 of winnings was collected last year.
