CPC Bucks County, Stadium Casino Westmoreland and TDN Money Systems have each received a penalty from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB).

Stadium Casino Westmoreland, the operator of Live! Casino Pittsburgh, has been handed a $7,500 fine over a self-exclusion violation.

A “self-excluded individual” was allowed to gamble at table games and received a cash advance at the company’s Pittsburgh facility, said the PGCB.

Under Pennsylvania regulations, a casino must identify and refuse gaming privileges or related activities, including advances and cashing checks, to such individuals.

TDN, meanwhile, must also pay $7,500 for failing to notify the PGCB of a change of control. The company was divested to two other licensed individuals, but TDN did not provide a notification in a timely manner.

Finally, CPC Bucks County is facing the heftiest fine. The company operates a Chickie’s and Pete’s restaurant at Parx Casino in Bensalem, and has been ordered to pay $17,500 over three incidents involving six patrons who were overserved alcohol. This led to the “visible intoxication” of each individual.

These fines come amid a lawsuit filed against the PGCB, and Pennsylvania’s Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement (BCLE), by skill-based gaming business Pace-O-Matic.

In its complaint, the company alleges that the PGCB engaged in the “coordinated harassment” of skill-based gaming operators at the behest of “big casino interests.”

And in other Pennsylvania news, a former Penn Interactive employee was recently charged with insider trading by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
