Casino Fined $30k for Violating Gaming Regulations
September 10th, 2013 by Site Admin
A fine of $30k has been slapped on Hollywood Casino Toledo in Ohio for holding blackjack games without video surveillance and offering slot machine games that did not bear the Ohio Casino Control Commission’s certification.
According to the commission, which will shortly approve the fine, the casino will pay the fine without attempting to fight against it.
Hollywood Casino Toledo is not the first casino to pay a fine. In April, the commission had fined Horseshoe Casino Cleveland $180k for violating several operational and security rules; and in January, the same casino was fined $15k for using unapproved computer software programs.
Horseshoe Casino Cleveland stood accused of mishandling keys, using unapproved dice, permitting waitresses to enter restricted zones between various table games, using quarters in place of chips, and storing and transporting slots machines in an inappropriate manner. Besides, the casino had not posted problem gambling help lines on its promotional posters.
According to Ohio Casino Control Commission Chairperson Jo Ann, the Casino Control Act was implemented to maintain high standards of gaming integrity in Ohio. She also said that the residents of Ohio expect high gambling standards and the commission expects casino properties to strictly adhere to the gambling laws.
