PA Gaming Control Board levies fines totaling $20k

2 May 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approved fines today totaling $20,000 against two casinos for various violations.

The fines were the result of Board approvals at its public meeting of consent agreements between the PGCB’s Office of Enforcement Counsel and:
  • Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment, Inc., operator of the Parx Casino in Bucks County, a $10,000 fine for a card replacement error at a blackjack table; and,
  • Chester Downs and Marina, LLC operator of Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino in Delaware County, a $10,000 fine for a Self-Exclusion List violation.

Details
Greenwood Gaming and Entertainment, Inc.’s fine stemmed from an incident in which approximately 420 hands of blackjack were played with a deck of cards missing a queen of diamonds but with an extra jack of diamonds.

Chester Downs and Marina, LLC was fined by the Board after an individual accessed Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino’s gaming floor, gamed at slot machines, and was permitted to cash a personal check despite being on the PGCB’s Self-Exclusion List. Licensed facilities must refuse wagers from and deny gaming privileges to any Self-Excluded person, along with denying check cashing privileges, player club memberships and cash advances.

The next meeting of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, 30 May 2018 in the PGCB’s Public Hearing Room located on the second floor of the Strawberry Square Complex in Harrisburg.
