The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has issued fines amounting to $284,000 to three licence holders including Boyd Gaming and Penn National Gaming.
Hollywood Casino operator the Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association – a subsidiary of Penn National Gaming – was given two fines totaling $120,000. The first – worth $70,000 – was for allowing a self-excluded customer to gamble, become intoxicated and subsequently cause damage to other customers’ vehicles.
The second $50,000 fine was for the actions of two since-terminated employees, who “willfully funneled payments” to service providers so these providers would make inaccurate disclosures to the PCGB, resulting in lower licence fees.
