The local gaming control board approved fines for violations made by two casinos in the state.

US.- Two casinos were fined in the Keystone State after the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board  (PGCB) established that due to violations they need to pay US$22.500. The measure was decided after getting the approval of the Board at its public meeting.

The agreement was between the local gaming control board’s Office of Enforcement Counsel and IOC-PA LLC, the operator of the Lady Luck Casino Nemacolin in Fayette County, which was fined US$10.000 for a violation that involved the play of table games, as revealed by PR Newswire. IGT Global Solutions Corporation, the company that holds a Manufacturer’s License, was the second entity to be fined US$12.500 for appointing and allowing an unlicensed employee to serve on the Board of Directors and occupy the Chairman position for more than 90 days.

The PGCB revealed earlier this week that the 12 casino operators in the state broke in April the table games revenue record set in March as they reported US$79.54 million, 10,2 percent higher than the same period last year. The figure released on Tuesday set the monthly record US$3 thousand higher than the previous top-performance in the area.
