Business News

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board today approved fines totaling $120,000 against two casino operators.

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, L.P., operator of Mohegan Sun Pocono in Luzerne County, a $110,000 fine for underage gaming violations; and

Washington Trotting Association, LLC, operator of the Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Washington County, a $10,000 fine for allowing employees to work with expired gaming licenses.

The first fine levied against Downs Racing, L.P. stemmed from four incidents in which individuals under the age of 21 accessed the gaming floor.

The fine against Washington Trotting Association, LLC was the result of two incidents in which employees of the casino were permitted to work after their gaming licenses expired and without authorization being given by the Board.

The next meeting of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, 20 November 2019 in the PGCB’s Public Hearing Room located on the second floor of the Strawberry Square Complex in Harrisburg.
