Pennsylvania Regulator Doles Out Fines Topping $280,000
Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board issues over $280,000 in fines to two casinos. Mount Airy Casino Resort will pay a majority of the fines, some $260,825. The brunt of this fee comes after the casino allowed underage visitors to gamble.
Mount Airy will pay $160,000 for letting underage visitors use slot machines. The PGCB is disappointed with the casino's actions. The 11-year-old accessed a slot after her father put a $100 bill into the machine and let her play. She was able to print out a voucher. Two 13- year-olds followed their mother to the gambling floor and played for 23 minutes. Security personnel came close to them but did not take any action.
The PGCB fined Mount Airy $20,000 for not having a proper licensing process for prospective employees. Pilot Travel Center and PFJ Southeast received a fine of $280,00. The regulator continues to be active in monitoring and enforcing regulations established within the gaming community.
