This week that the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announced that they've fined six gaming companies a total of $238,500 for various infractions of the state's gaming laws.

Fines were dished out to Gaming Partners International USA, Inc., GPI Mexicana SA de CV, Washington Trotting Association LLC (operator of Hollywood Casino at the Meadows in Washington County), Downs Racing LP (operator of Mohegan Sun Pocono Casino), Sugarhouse HSP Gaming LP (operator of Casino Philadelphia), and Holdings Acquisition Co. LP (Rivers Casino Pittsburgh).

Gaming Partners and GPI Mexicana were fined $85,5000 for not filing audited financial statements on-time, while Hollywood Casino's parent company was fined $40,000 for over service of alcohol. Mohegan Sun's parent had a $10,000 fine for a self-exclusion violation, while Rivers Casino was fined $10,000 for allowing underage gambling. Rivers Casino Pittsburgh had a $7,500 fine for using revoked software in some of its slot machines.

The fines were dished out after the PGCB got consent agreements with the companies. Recently, the state's largest city of Philadelphia announced that it was re-instituting a mask policy for players due to rising Covid-19 cases.

Wow.... You would think for those kinds of violations the fines would be much heftier cosidering the amount of money they rake in every year.
