The Pennsylvania gaming regulatory body has imposed fines for failures in administrative duties



The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has not only imposed fines of $147,500, but has also addressed petitions to prohibit three adults from accessing all casinos.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has given its approval to three consent agreements, as presented by the Board’s Office of Enforcement Counsel (OEC), which will result in fines totalling $147,500 for violations that occurred at three casinos.

Mount Airy, LLC, which operates the Mount Airy Casino Resort in Monroe County, will be required to pay $120,000 for failing to submit internal audit plans within the stipulated timeframe of its Statement of Conditions for licensure. Additionally, Downs Racing, LP, operator of the Mohegan Pennsylvania casino in Luzerne County, has been fined $20,000 for two incidents involving supervisory employees working without the proper permit.

Lastly, Sugarhouse HSP Gaming, LP, the operator of the Rivers Casino Philadelphia, has been fined $7,500 for failing to provide adequate notification to its security and surveillance staff, as well as law enforcement, regarding a suspected cheating incident that involved marked cards during a table game.


The Pennsylvania regulator has also taken action on petitions to ban three adults from all casinos in the state for leaving six children unattended while engaging in gaming activities. The Board emphasized that its actions serve as a reminder that it is illegal for adults to leave minors unsupervised in parking lots or garages, hotels, or other areas within casinos.

It further noted that such behaviour could lead to criminal charges against the adult in addition to being banned from all Pennsylvania casinos. The Board launched an awareness campaign on the issue in November, called “Don’t Gamble with Kids,” in response to concerns about the number of minors being left unattended in vehicles in casino parking lots or hotel rooms.
