PA regulator sanctions three operators totaling $150,000
Today, The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board sanctioned three casino operators, including Caesars and Penn National Gaming, charging a total of $150,000.
Chester Downs and Marina, the licensee for Caesars Entertainment’s Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack, was penalized $22,500. The corporation had failed to protect its assets. Two robberies had happened, and the corporation had been charged as a result. A client snatched $955 in table gaming chips with another having $24,000 on hand when a drawer had been left open.
Presque Isle Downs and Casino was penalized $45,000 for their actions. The firm violated Pennsylvania’s Covid-19 regulation, which specifies that sites cannot provide alcohol until a meal is ordered. Only then may alcohol be given to the individual. This is intended to avert the continuing Covid-19. The regulator did not specify the date of the infraction; however, the suspension ended on June 16.
Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association, which manages Penn National Gaming’s Hollywood Casino and Barstool Sportsbook brands, was charged $57,500. The company had allowed self-excluded people to enter and make bets at its facilities, which is not allowed since sites must prohibit such users from entering and gambling on their platforms. A further $25,000 was levied against the company. The Casino had permitted four gamblers under age on its site. Aged 16, 17, 18, and 19, they tried to enter the Casino. Two of them succeeded, with one of them even playing on a slot machine.
