Soon after news broke out that Whitney Houston's 19-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina gambled at the MGM Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, a rep for the venue announced they launched investigation to look into the matter. It's against the law for anyone under the age of 21 to take part in any kind of gaming in the Sin City.

The teen girl was caught on camera gambling at the casino, just a day before her emotional appearance at 2012 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday night, May 20. She was seen playing slot machines while spending time with her 22-year-old boyfriend Nick Gordon.

In response, MGM's Gaming Control Board Chairman Mark Lipparelli insisted the video was not enough evidence. If the underage gambling did happen, they would investigate it further to find out whether or not the activity took place with the employees' knowledge.

Underage gambling is punishable by up to 6 months in county jail or $1,000 fine, while the casino could face a heavier financial penalty.

Representative for the Houstons has yet to comment on the matter.
