PGCB Issues New Fines to Casinos

This week the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announced a series of fines for gaming establishments in the state that total $73,075.

Stadium Casino Westmoreland, which operates the Live! Casino Pittsburgh was issued two fines worth $30,000. One fine was $10,000 for allowing underage play by one person, while $20,000 in fines were doled out for allowing self-excluded gamblers onto the casino's gaming floor.

Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores was fined $25,000 for not notifying the regulator of ownership structural changes for five of its locations that house slot machines. This fine is similar to the one doled out in September by the PGCB against Pilot Travel Centers for allowing underage betting and not having a gambling-certified employee available.

Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment, which operates Parx Casino & Racing in Bucks County was fined $18,075 for not submitting license renewal applications in a timely manner.

News of the fines comes as the regulator announced that the state's gaming revenues rose 6.2% in September to $476.3 million, due largely to a jump in online gaming.
