Another casino has to pay up tens of thousands of dollars as their punishment for allowing an underage gambler into their premises.
The underage gambler, Rose Jacqueline Bach, age 20, resident of South Plainfield, New Jersey, was found at 1:10am, Sunday, April 30, by the Pennsylvania State Police on the gaming floor of Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem.
In August 2016, Pennsylvania casino regulators approved the fines against the casino operator of Sands Casino for three counts of incidents wherein visitors under the age of 21 had been found on the gaming floor.
The three instances are below:
- A 20-year-old female was allowed into the gaming floor who bet at the table games and slot machines.
- An 18-year-old male was allowed into the gaming floor where he ordered alcoholic drinks.
- A 20-year-old female was allowed into the gaming floor who bet on the slot machines.
According to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, for all the three incidents, Sands Bethworks Gaming LLC has to pay a fine worth $39,000.
It is also a rule in the past years that underage gamblers who have won jackpots had to forfeit their winnings and be evicted from the casino.
Owned and operated by Sheldon Adelson's Las Vegas Sands Corp, the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem is one of Pennsylvania's largest casinos and usually at the top when it comes to revenue.
