Pennsylvania Fines Parx Casino Over Underage Gambling

This story was published more than 1 year ago.

The Parx Casino in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has been fined $10,000 for allowing an 18-year-old player into the casino to gamble at the facility.

The regulator said the casino broke the state's gaming rules by letting the player into the casino floor, as players need to be 21 years or older to legally gamble. The fine came out of the PGCB's Office of Enforcement Counsel.

No comment from the PGCB or Parx was available at press time.

In addition to the fine, the regulator moved to ban seven players from entering any casino after they were found to have left children unattended in order to play.

In other regulatory news, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announced that they were extending the gaming license of the Valley Forge Casino Resort for an additional five years.
