Resorts Casino Atlantic City Fined for Online Violation

This week the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has fined Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City $7,187 for allowing a self-excluded gambler to open an account.

The issue occurred after what Resorts called a "computer programming error" a month after the casino went online with NYX Gaming. The fine was levied and took into account $1,187 that the gambler lost to the casino. Since its launch earlier this year Resorts has pulled in impressive gambling results, winning $735,140 last month. The casino also has a pending partnership with poker giant PokerStars, which is currently awaiting licensing by the DGE.

Resorts isn't the only casino to face a fine for its online operations, as the Borgata and Tropicana casinos were penalized $5,000 and $2,000 respectively for letting two underage gamblers play on their sites.
