PGCB levies fines totalling US$120k

PGCB, the gambling regulator from Pennsylvania, has approved fines totalling US$120k against two casino operators.

US.- The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has announced that it has fined two casino operators. The US$120k fines were given to Downs Racing and Washington Trotting Association.

The regulator from Pennsylvania said that the fines were the result of board approvals at its public meeting of consent agreements between the PGCB’s Office of Enforcement Counsel and Downs Racing and Washington Trotting Association.

The first fine levied against Downs Racing, operator of Mohegan Sun Pocono in Luzerne County, stemmed from four incidents in which individuals under the age of 21 accessed the gaming floor. The fine against the operator totalled US$110k.

The US$10k fine against Washington Trotting Association, LLC, operator of Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Washington County, was the result of two incidents in which employees of the casino were permitted to work after their gaming licences expired and without authorisation being given by the board.

Pennsylvania increases DFS revenue

Revenue from daily fantasy sports (DFS) totalled US$2.9 million in September. This figure represents an increase of 37.2% when compared to the same period last year when the state registered US$2.1 million. The regulatory body said that tax revenue collected from DFS in September was US$439k.
