Land casino group Caesars Interactive Entertainment has announced that they self-reported a violation to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement and will pay a $15,000 fine as a result.
Caesars reported the violation in April after a third party supplier to the casino advertised to 231 gamblers who had previously signed up for a self-exclusion list. The violation isn't the first for Caesars, who committed a similar infraction last year and paid a $10,000 fine.
Commenting on the matter Caesars Spokesman Seth Palansky said, “We self-reported this error to the DGE after we were notified by our third-party provider a lapse in procedure occurred. We regret the error, and apologize to those affected by it. We accept the punishment and will work more diligently to avoid a repeat mistake.”
