    Default Gambling tycoon to forfeit $300m - A bloke called Dikshit

    Gambling tycoon to forfeit $300m


    Anurag Dikshit still holds a major stake in PartyGaming

    The billionaire co-founder of an internet gambling company has pleaded guilty to violating US internet laws and agreed to forfeit $300m (£192m).
    Anurag Dikshit, co-founder of the UK-listed company PartyGaming, entered the plea in a New York federal court.
    He is charged with violating federal gambling laws, an offence which could incur a prison term of up to two years.
    Mr Dikshit, an Indian national with an estimated fortune of $1.6bn, declined to comment to reporters.
    The US justice department said Mr Dikshit, 37, had pleaded guilty to one count of "using the wires to transmit bets and wagering information".
    US gambling law reforms in 2006 effectively made it illegal for PartyGaming to trade there.
    Correspondents say Mr Dikshit, who still holds a major stake in the company, is unlikely to serve any jail time because of a plea agreement with prosecutors.
    Mr Dikshit, who was released on a $15m bail pending sentencing next December, has already paid $100m.

    Haha, yeah, he is only missing an 'S' in his first name, and it would be a perfect "adult-baby gone scat" porn name.

    Heh, I think the reporters found the name amusing. I've never seen a name used so many times in an article.

    Sounds plausible - there's an indian actress called maduri dixit. I've sometimes seen the same indian name written in so many different ways in english, some bearing vague resemblance to the actual name.

    Sounds very much like Anal Dick sit.
    There are 3 types of people in the world - those who make things happen, those who watch things happen; and those who wondered what happened.
