The Department of Children and Family Services says they've collected more than $2 million dollars in casino winnings from parents who owe back child support. Deputy Assistant Secretary Lisa Andry says this is a huge milestone for the Casino Intercept Program which launched in September 2011.

|The State Department of Children and Family Services is out with Louisiana's 18 "Most Wanted" non-custodial parents who owe almost $866,000 in past due child support. DCFS Secretary Suzy Sonnier says these parents have repeatedly evaded efforts to collect child support that is critical to their children.|

Over a million dollars in unpaid child support has been intercepted from the casino winnings of deadbeat parents, under a state law passed in 2010. Department of Children & Family Services spokesman Trey Williams says the two-year-old program kicks in whenever a non-custodial parent wins $1200 or more at a casino.
