What is a "hot check"? A check where you do not have the money, but it makes you sound like a piece of shit when you say bad check, so you say hot check because it makes you sound cool? Yes, they can sue you, irrespective of whether they are an illegal gambling spot.

Since it is an illegal gambling place, they will probably send some guys to bust your kneecaps.

Theoretically yes, but it probably would be foolish for the obvious reasons.
