PGCB issues 67k in fines to three operators
The PGCB has recently published its latest fine targeting three licensed companies.
The three firms in question are the operators of Mohegan Pennsylvania and the Rivers Casino establishments in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. The first one received the majority of the fine at 50 thousand dollars for allowing patrons under the age of 21 to access its gambling venues. The regulator stated that in one instance, an underage guest was even provided with alcohol.
The operator of the Rivers Casino property in Pittsburgh received a 10 thousand dollar fine for a similar reason, although the authority stated that there was only one instance of the violation taking place. The Philadelphia establishment, on the other hand, received the smallest penalty at 7500 dollars for having an untrained roulette dealer in its gambling venues.
Furthermore, the PGCB also continued reporting on its involuntary gambling bans placed on people who left children unattended to gamble, the cases of which have now reached 397 since the start of the program. The regulator’s latest batch of bans included seven cases, with one of the most noteworthy ones involving two adults that left a child unattended in a hotel room for a total of almost 8 hours over the course of 2.5 days to gamble.
