Pennsylvania’s Stadium Casino Fined for Allowing People to Restricted Areas
The Live! Casino Philadelphia‘s operator, Stadium Casino, was fined $10,000 by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) for allowing people to enter portions of the building that were off-limits.
In the first instance, a lady broke into a number of restricted places in the hotel and casino and stole from staff members.
It was also found that in another occurrence, three casino visitors who had been denied entry to the casino by security were able to penetrate an unlocked restricted section and join the casino floor.
The PGCB fined Stadium Casino after determining that this was a violation of state laws and ordinances governing the operation of land-based casinos.
After it was discovered that eight adults had let minors bet unaccompanied, the PGCB also took measures to bar them from entering any casinos in the state. In addition to being barred from all Pennsylvania casinos, leaving youngsters unsupervised in a casino in Pennsylvania can result in criminal charges for the offending adult.
Five kids, ranging in age from three to eleven, were left in an unattended car in the Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack parking garage while a client spent 25 minutes playing table games inside.
A female customer was also banned after she played the slots for 57 minutes while leaving a 12-year-old unsupervised in her car at the Harrah’s Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack parking garage.
Another female player was added to the Involuntary exclusion list after leaving a nine-year-old unsupervised in her car at the Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course while she played slots inside for 30 minutes.
