On Friday, agents with the ADG, Glendale Police Department and Arizona Attorney's Office served search warrants at the Jackpot Café and a private residence of one of the suspects.

Agents seized more than 40 gambling devices, computers, a vehicle, over $940,000, according to a Monday news release.

Two patrons were arrested for unrelated charges.

During the investigation, agents confirmed Jackpot Café customers were playing slot machine type games to win cash.

The ADG also launched a financial investigation tracking money from the gambling activities to various accounts throughout the country, according to the news release.

No further arrests have been made and the investigation is still on-going.
