California’s Bicycle Casino reopened Wednesday after it was shut down in a government raid at around 7 a.m. local time on Tuesday. The casino said that it reopened at 3 a.m. PST.

“We are serving our customers and resuming normal operations immediately,” the casino said. "Our priority is to provide a safe and fun environment for our guests.”

The property, home to 185 poker tables, is located in Bell Gardens.

The Bike said in an earlier statement that it would reopen "as soon as the federal agents have completed their work.”

Authorities aren’t disclosing the nature of the investigation at this point. However, it is known that the raid was conducted, in part, by ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations unit and the IRS Criminal Investigation unit.

Reports have said that the investigation is into possible money laundering at gaming tables.

Altogether, nine state and federal agencies were involved in the raid.

No arrests were made Tuesday, according to reports.

The L.A. Times reported that investigators seized thousands of financial records.
