As the options and opportunities for legal gambling in Virginia continues to change, Virginia State Police are launching a statewide gaming tip line and online form for the public to report suspected gaming operation concerns.

According to state police, anyone needing to report criminal violations of gaming laws are encouraged to call the new, toll-free tip line… Violations can also be reported online at the Virginia State Police’s website. The new tip line is going to help VSP investigate violations regarding Virginia lottery games, sports betting, casino gaming, fantasy contests, and/or horse racing and pari-mutuel wagering.

“Virginians need to be aware that if you choose to participate in gaming activities, the programs are regulated and must be operated within the confines of Virginia law,” said Superintendent of Virginia State Police, Colonel Gary T. Settle.
