The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has handed out fines against two casinos for underage gaming and alcohol violations. The casinos, operated by Mount Airy and Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association, have been fined a total of $210,000.
The fines were the result of Board approvals at its public meeting of consent agreements between the PGCB’s Office of Enforcement Counsel and the two operators.
Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association, LLC, operator of Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Dauphin County, was penalized to the tune of $40,000 stemming from four incidents in which individuals under the age of 21 accessed the gaming floor to wager at slot machines and gain access to alcohol.
The consent agreement approved by the Board against Mount Airy’s Casino Resort in Monroe County resulted in a $170,000 penalty for 17 incidents dating back to the start of 2016 in which individuals under the age of 21 accessed the gaming floor, wagered on table games and slot machines and were served alcohol.
The next meeting of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, January 9, 2019 in the PGCB’s Public Hearing Room located on the second floor of the Strawberry Square Complex in Harrisburg.
