Pennsylvania Issues Three Fines For $212,500

This week the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announced that they've issued $212,500 in fines against two casino operators for breaking the Keystone State's gaming regulations.

The largest fines went to Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing, which received two fines worth $147,500. The company was fined $97,500 for having ineffective controls on its Penn Interactive Ventures' Internet Gaming and Sports Wagering platforms that allowed people to create accounts using identification from other people, allowed funding of accounts using stolen payment devices, and allowing withdrawals by individuals that were part of the fraudulent behavior. An additional $50,000 fine was issued for allowing underage people onto the casino floor at the Hollywood Casino York property.

Sugarhouse HSP Gaming was fined $65,000 for not meeting staffing requirements for 40 days at its Rivers Philadelphia Casino as well as not providing on-time notifications of theft to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board or State Police.

Additionally, three individuals were banned from casinos in the state for leaving minors unattended in order to gamble. The state has been very active in trying to prevent adults from leaving their children in cars to gamble, with hefty criminal penalties and bans from casinos part of the punitive measures put into place.
