This story was published more than 1 year ago.

This week the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announced that they've fined three fines against casino operators for various violations that occurred at the locations.

Mount Airy Casino Resort in Monroe County was fined $120,000 for not submitting internal audit plans on-time, which is a condition for holding a license in the state. The Mohegan Pennsylvania Casino in Luzerne County was fined $20,000 for allowing supervisors to work despite not having proper permits. Lastly, Rivers Casino Philadelphia was fined $7,500 for failing to notify security and law enforcement about alleged cheating at a table.

The regulator also announced that it has banned three people from entering casinos in the state due to leaving children unattended in order to gamble, either in a car, at a hotel, or at a locale inside the casino.

In a statement, the PGCB said, "Leaving minors unattended at a Pennsylvania casino also subjects the offending adult to criminal prosecution in addition to exclusion from all Pennsylvania casinos."
