Operating gambling without a name

Out near Canyon Lake, apparently you don't even need a name for your business.
The Comal County Sheriff’s Office raided three businesses and arrested five people on charges of illegal gambling.

Deputies busted the Crazy Coconut, and the Lucky Dog in Canyon Lake. They also raided another business without a name just off of Highway 281 in Spring Branch. [emphasis added]

(from WOAI-TV)

They were busted for eight-liners. In case you don't know yet, these machines are illegal to use in Texas. For gambling, that is. I'm sure quite a few establishments purchase eight-liners and put them out "for entertainment purposes only," but don't be fooled by that. How many pipes bought from Planet K do you think are actually being used for tobacco only?
