“CSI: Cyber” Episode On CBS Targets Online Gambling

Dustin Gouker : May 4th, 2015


A new episode of CSI: Cyber on CBS will be tackling the issue of online gambling.

CSI: Cyber is the latest spin-off in the popular CSI (Crime Scene Investigation) franchise. The show, which is about the Cyber Crime Division of the FBI, premiered this season. It is based on the life of cyber psychologist Mary Aiken

The episode, perhaps not shockingly, paints online gaming in an unflattering light, using some of the rhetoric that anti-gaming forces rely upon:

“The online gaming world is a haven for cyber-criminals,” Special Agent Avery Ryan, played by Patricia Arquette, is seen saying in the trailer.

Later in the promo, Arquette’s character asks for $250,000 to play online poker. You can watch the promo for the episode below:

The episode looks like it could be an hourlong commercial for casino mogul and online gaming opponent Sheldon Adelson, as noted on Twitter:

Adelson has been pushing for a law that would ban all forms of online gaming at the federal level, called the Restoration of America’s Wire Act.

The episode about online gaming is scheduled to air on Wednesday at 10 p.m. Eastern/9 p.m. Central.
