The message from DCFS is clear, if you owe back child support, they will take your casino winnings.

The Department of Children and Family Services has announced  that they have collected  more than $2 million dollars in casino winnings from parents who owe back child support.

The Deputy Assistant Secretary Lisa Andry says this is a huge milestone for the Casino Intercept Program which started up in September 2011.  "We certainly don't want non-custodial parents who owe money to be gambling," said Andry. "So this really is a great thing."
