The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board today approved four consent agreements between the PGCB's Office of Enforcement Counsel and three casino operators including Caesars and Penn National Gaming, resulting in a total of $150,000 in fines.
Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association, which operates Penn National Gaming’s Hollywood Casino and Barstool Sportsbook brands, was fined $57,500 for letting self-excluded individuals access its and place wagers. Sites are required to prohibit self-excluded individuals from visiting or wagering on their platforms.
The business then received a second fine of $25,000 for allowing underage individuals to gamble on the casino floor. Four individuals, aged 16, 17, 18 and 19, attempted to access the casino floor, of which two succeeded, with one using a slot machine.
