Pennsylvania casino fined $25K for serving a patron 27 drinks in 9 hours

Tags: Mount Airy Casino, Pennsylvania
Posted on Tuesday, February 14, 2017 by "T".
It is the type of state regulation that most people are not totally aware of because of the fact that it is not always enforced; however, it is known that casinos in Pennsylvania are not allowed to serve alcoholic drinks to obviously already-intoxicated gamblers. It's the regulation that Mount Airy Casino had actually violated 18 times in just one day. On February 1, Wednesday, the Pennsylvania G[...]   Read more » Pennsylvania casino fined $25K for serving a patron 27 drinks in 9 hours

It does seem a crazy rule that a casino can be fined for serving too much alcohol. If the customer is of legal age, it is surely their responsibility to know when they have had enough

so 27 drinks in 9 hours equals to 3 drinks in 1 hour or 1 drink every 20 minutes... assuming there are not 2-3 customers in a casino it's not such an easy feat for the bartender to remember when exactly was the last drink served to the customer...
now on the other hand, surely it's nice to have such law that tries to save your arse when the sole goal fo the casino is to get you totally drunk and lose all of your cash...

27 * 1.2 ounce ~ 1 litre ... hmm .. that's pretty much even if it is stretched 9 hours then it's probably not a lot ... it depends on the individual .. but of course the bartenders have at least a little to monitor the amount of drinking customer to prevent death

I don't know if thus is correct decision, yes casino wants it's customers to be drinking a lot of alcohol amd this way to lose a lot of money even more than they planned, but people knows this and still go to casino and still take thise drinks, no one forces them.

i just wonder how many clients would casinos have if alcohol was banned on the premises? surely this wouldn't stop pure 100% degens from lurking in the casino 23 hours a day, but apart them the sight would be pretty sad. so i guess moral to the story would be this: let the vodka flow!

here the laws are strict and so 27 drinks is a lot. police have the power to close down a bar. if hes a regular and can handle his booze then i think this is a stupid fine

------------
oh ok, I read it now. definately deserved the fine

Of course the man himself must answer for their actions, and if it does not violate the law of his action is his business .... but if you can see that a person can not control yourself then you need to help him ... the penalty imposed is absolutely right

It is one of the laws that i find reasonable.
It is not difficult losing control when drinking. After a point, you cant even think straight
and you dont care.
Besides the dangers you put yourself into, you are a danger for the rest with your moves,
till you go to sleep or pass out.

We have read the article here, about the other case with the drunk driver..
And this is not something we have to read.
I bet most of us have lived through a case like this.
Car and bike accidents are daily due to excessive drinking.

Apparently all people are not the same.
Cause when they get drunk, then drive and cripple or kill people,
i suppose it is ok, so we should let them do as they please right?
You can drink in your house as much as you want, but when you are in a public place it is not the same, especially when you are responsible for your own transportation.

in this case casinos are not allowed to get people drunk since drunk people would lose more money etc. at home you still can drink n drive. more likely he woulda taxied if he had money left

In some instances, a drunk person can't collect reimbursement for injury caused, but a third party injured by the actions of a drunk person can collect from a bar or tavern under certain circumstances. This is especially important when the drunk person has little or no insurance to cover a serious or fatal injury.

I agree in both things you have said robbo.
That one of the reasons in casino is to prevent you from losing your home Smile

While drinking at home, you can get your car and drive off too of course,
but what are the chances to get wasted and leave your home to go somewhere else,
compared in getting wasted in a bar or a casino, where you have to go back to your home.
If you remember where that is Smile

Only in the glorious United States of America could someone get fined for something that someone else did. So, some guy goes into a bar and orders 27 drinks.... now it's someone else's fault. In years to come there will be this joke where it starts, some guy walks into a bar and the bartender says, I'm sorry I cant serve you! Now that is really funny!

It is not only USA that has this law.
There are other countries too, which have even higher penalties, and they are doing the right thing.
Check here for example to see a couple of fines in Australia :

1.25 ounces of rhum x 27 that's like a 40 oz bottle all by himself... Almost anybody (except some russians perhaps but I don't think they like rhum Blink) would be KO after that.

I don't know why the casino was fined 25,000$ for this as it's their employee's fault but they make so much money off of working class people it's a good thing the governement takes some back sometimes Blink

here both you and the employer get fined, the employer more so. aint the coachs fault if the team loses or drops the ball/plays s**t...but hes the first to get fired....same sort of principle Especially a casino where security watch the whole floor through cctv and didnt mention anything when like you say KOd
