SPRING HILL, FL – On September 10, 2020, an investigation into illegal gambling at Fish 4 Fun, located at 5165 Commercial Way in Spring Hill, culminated when members of the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Vice and Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant at the business.

The investigation revealed that Fish 4 Fun had numerous computerized games inside that appeared similar to slot machines in a legal casino. These games are considered “games of chance,” as the computer decides when the player “wins”. The business made cash payouts to any patron who “won”. The operation at Fish 4 Fun did not follow Florida state gambling statutes.
