The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has approved of three consent agreements granted by the Board's Office of Enforcement Counsel (OEC) during its public meeting regarding violations that occurred at three casinos. Total fines distributed were $147,500. The three casinos in question are: Mount Airy, Mohegan Pennsylvania and Sugarhouse. 

The approved consent agreements between OEC and the three companies were: Mount Airy Casino Resort in Monroe County was fined $120,000 for failure to timely submit internal audit plans, a stipulation of its Statement of Conditions for licensure.

Downs Racing, operator of Mohegan Pennsylvania casino in Luzerne County, received a fine of $20,000 for two incidents in which supervisory employees worked without the proper Board-issued permit. Lastly, Sugarhouse, operator of Rivers Casino Philadelphia, was issued a $7,500 fine for not properly notifying its security and surveillance staff along with law enforcement about an alleged cheating incident at a table game involving marked cards.

Alongside handing out fines to three casinos, the Board also acted on petitions to ban three adults from all casinos in the state for leaving six children unattended in order to engage in gaming activities.

The Board's actions serve as a reminder that adults are prohibited from leaving minors unattended, since it creates a potentially unsafe and dangerous environment for the children. Leaving minors unattended at a Pennsylvania casino also subjects the offending adult to criminal prosecution in addition to exclusion from all Pennsylvania casinos.
