Rivers Casino hit with $7,500 fine in Pennsylvania

| By Conor Mulheir
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) has approved a consent agreement between its Office of Enforcement Counsel and Sugarhouse HSP Gaming, operator of Rivers Casino Philadelphia, resulting in a $7,500 (£5,413/€6,389) fine for the operator.

The fine relates to a violation of approved internal controls, in which a member of the gaming floor personnel at the casino duplicated surveillance footage onto his cell phone in an attempt to settle a patron dispute.

The staff member duplicated the footage without permission from the surveillance room shift manager, in violation of internal controls.

In June, the PGCB issued four fines to three other casino operators, amounting to a total of $284,000. Violations included allowing a self-excluded customer to gamble, become intoxicated and subsequently cause damage to other customers’ vehicles.
