The former operator of bitcoin poker site Seals with Clubs was sentenced to two years probation and fined $25,000 today after pleading guilty to the unlawful operation of a gaming site earlier this year.
At the time he was charged, Micon faced as many as 10 years in prison, and upwards of $50,000 in fines.
The Nevada charges came after the abrupt closure of Seals with Clubs in February. That same month, state gaming officials raided Micon's home, prompting a flight to Antigua.
According to a report by the The Associated Press, defense attorney Richard Shonfeld said that Micon would "complete his probation in Las Vegas and move with his family to Antigua to take a job in the technology office of a newspaper there".
