Three PA casinos fined a total of $77,500 by Gaming Control Board

Fines totaling $77,500 against three Pennsylvania casinos for various infractions were reportedly approved by the state’s Gaming Control Board recently.

The operator of the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, Holdings Acquisition Company, L.P., was reportedly fined a total of $42,500 for two separate violations, according to a recent press release.

A fine of $22,500 reportedly resulted from casino personnel failing to properly execute handling procedures for two males and one female who are on the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board’s (PGCB) Self-Excluded Persons List.

Wagers and gaming privileges such as cash advances and player’s cards must be refused by gaming facilities in the Commonwealth – from and to – individuals who are on the Board’s Self-Exclusion List. Individuals who choose to place themselves on the list can do so for a one or five-year period or for a lifetime. Self-exclusions do not expire, so in every case, even upon expiry of the minimum period of self-exclusion, the individual must request removal from the PGCB’s Self-Exclusion List.

Holdings Acquisition Company, L.P. was also reportedly fined $20,000 for hosting a handful of poker tournaments without first getting approval from the Board. Per regulations, prior to a poker tournament, a proposed schedule of tournaments must be submitted for approval by the PGCB’s Executive Director.

The operator of Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs in Lackawanna County, Downs Racing, L.P., was reportedly fined $25,000 for casino personnel failing to properly report a 2016 incident to the PGCB, where compromised decks which had incorrect cards were used during gameplay.

Lastly, a $10,000 fine was reportedly levied against the operator of the SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia, SugarHouse HSP Gaming L.P., for failure by casino personnel of preventing an underage male access to the gaming floor, where he subsequently gambled at a slot machine.
