PGCB fines gambling terminal operator $45k
The PGCB recently penalized an operator of gambling terminals for 45 thousand dollars.
The business in question, Pilot Travel Centers, operated gambling machines at a truck stop near Smithton, Pennsylvania. The regulatory authority stated that it issued the fine because the operator failed to prevent a case of underage gambling at the establishment, in addition to not having appropriate supervision with a PGCB-approved employee at the terminals to help prevent such violations from happening.
Furthermore, along with publishing its latest enforcement action against one of the state’s licensed gambling operators, the PGCB also announced four new bans on adults that left minors unattended to play at the state’s gambling establishments. The newest additions to the state’s involuntary exclusion list include three adults who have now been banned for leaving children unattended on one occasion each, along with one person who left a total of three minors unattended to gamble in two separate cases.
The aforementioned person who left minors unattended on two separate occasions did so for more than 20 minutes at a time, while one of the most noteworthy cases in the PGCB’s latest batch of bans involved an adult leaving three minors for just over two hours while they gambled in the Hollywood Casino in Grantville.
