The New Jersey regulator has decided to issue a fine to GVC and MGM Resorts’ Borgata casino over self-exclusion breaches.
US.- Responsible gaming is a key factor for the industry worldwide and it gets taken really seriously. That’s why the New Jersey regulator has issued a civil action order against Borgata Casino Hotel’s operators GVC and MGM Resorts.
The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) issued a fine for Borgata for breaches in its self-exclusion systems. It is specifically directed at GVC Holdings-owned Bwin.party Entertainment and partner MGM Resorts. Both have been struck with the action after people in the self-exclusion list were granted access to their websites.
The fine was set at US$81k, and Borgata must also forfeit US$41.7k, which was gambled by 12 self-excluded gamblers.
Recently, Borgata was also ordered to forfeit around US$68k for the same reason and for failing to properly identify gamblers. Furthermore, back in 2014, a California gambler’s US$90k were confiscated after he bypassed geo-location through a virtual private network, also called VPN.
The DGE continues to thoroughly scout potential breaches in the state’s regulation to guarantee the proper operation of the gambling industry in New Jersey.
