There's two types of gambling, legal and illegal. Legal gambling happens in places like Vegas, this happens to be a gambling outfit that the government doesn't know about and therefore doesn't get a piece of the pie, which pisses them off.

If Rick or whoever had gone to Vegas and spent millions betting on football, that's his business. But this is something entirely different. He spent his money financing an underground gambling ring and profits from it without claiming it for tax purposes.
