Andrew Tate has claimed to own 15 casinos in Romania, but there is no public evidence to support this claim. In 2022, the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and its member center RISE Project Romania investigated Tate's claims and found evidence that he and his brother, Tristan, have a financial interest in at least six "Las Vegas" branded casinos along with two alleged organized crime figures known as the Doroftei brothers.
Tate has never publicly disclosed the names of his business partners, and Talisman Enterprises, a Romanian company controlled by the Tate brothers, is not licensed to operate casinos on its own. However, joint-venture contracts obtained by reporters show that profits from at least six Las Vegas casino branches are split between Talisman Enterprises and DMS Bet Live SRL, a company owned by the Doroftei brothers and licensed in Romania to operate fixed odds betting.In multiple interviews, Tate has claimed to have partnered up with some "brothers, mafia guys," who owned "400 [gambling] locations from Estonia all the way down to the East of Europe," and to have helped his new partners push competitors out of business. However, the OCCRP investigation found no evidence that Tate has any interest in any casinos outside of Romania.
It is therefore likely that Tate's claims to own 15 casinos are exaggerated. However, it is also clear that he has some financial interest in at least six casinos in Romania, and that he is associated with alleged organized crime figures.In addition to his casino interests, Tate also has a number of other business ventures, including a webcam company, a cryptocurrency investment platform, and a subscription-based service that offers advice on business and relationships. He is also a popular social media influencer, with over 5 million followers on Instagram and YouTube.Tate's lavish lifestyle and controversial views have made him a polarizing figure. Some people admire him for his success, while others criticize him for his misogyny and promotion of violence. Regardless of one's opinion of Tate, there is no doubt that he is a complex and fascinating individual.
The OCCRP investigation found that Andrew Tate and his brother Tristan were business partners with Mihăiță and Sorin Doroftei, who are accused by prosecutors of leading a violent organized crime group centered around their Las Vegas casino brand. The Tates and the Dorofteis had a profit-sharing agreement for at least six Las Vegas casino branches. The OCCRP also found that the Tates' company, Talisman Enterprises, was not licensed to operate casinos on its own. This means that the Tates were likely operating the casinos illegally. The Tates have denied any wrongdoing, and have said that they have severed all ties with the Dorofteis. However, the OCCRP investigation provides strong evidence that the Tates were involved in organized crime. The OCCRP investigation also raised questions about the source of the Tates' wealth. Andrew Tate has claimed to have made his money from kickboxing, cryptocurrency investments, and his online businesses. However, the OCCRP investigation found that the Tates' businesses are not as profitable as they claim. The OCCRP concluded that the Tates' wealth is likely derived from their illegal casino operations. The Tates have been criticized for their lavish lifestyle and their controversial views. Andrew Tate has been accused of misogyny and promoting violence. He has also been accused of running a scam in which he promises to teach people how to make money, but instead takes their money. Despite the controversy, the Tates remain popular figures in Romania and online. They have a large following on social media, and their businesses are successful.
