PGCB Issues Fines of $10,000 to DraftKings and Stadium Casino

This comes a month after the operator levied $212,500 in fines and banned three adults from entering casinos in the state

On March 20, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announced that it had approved two consent agreements presented by its Office of Enforcement Counsel. The agreements were presented during the regulator’s public meeting on that day and resulted in a total of $20,000 in fines against two separate gambling operators.

The first operator the PGCB levied a fine against is Stadium Casino, which offered an unapproved college prop bet through its subcontracted Betway platform. Because of this violation, Stadium Casino will have to pay a fine of $10,000, the regulator announced.

In the meantime, DraftKings was slammed with a $10,000 fine for allowing Pennsylvanian customers to access content that is not approved in the Commonwealth. According to the PGCB, consumers in the state could access the operator’s Reignmakers fantasy contests.

For reference, the PGCB had specifically ordered the contests to be made unavailable in Pennsylvania. As a result, DraftKings will also have to pay a fine of $10,000.

This comes a month after the operator levied $212,500 in fines and banned three adults from entering casinos in the state. It is unclear whether similar bans were levied at this time.

The board added that its next meeting is scheduled for April 24 and will take place in the PGCB’s Public Hearing Room.

The PGCB Is Responsible for Regulating the Local  Gaming Market

As mentioned, the PGCB recently fined two other operators, namely Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing, which violated The Keystone State’s gambling laws and allegedly facilitated money laundering, and Sugarhouse HSP Gaming, which failed to meet minimum staffing requirements at its Rivers Philadelphia Casino for over 40 days.

In other news, a man in an electric wheelchair recently stole $5,000 in $100 bills from a Rivers Casino Pittsburgh guest. Recent reports say that the victim dropped the money, which was eventually picked up by the culprit. Local authorities describe the thief as a white man aged between 50 and 60.

Speaking of the Rivers Casino, the property is currently involved in a cheating scheme as two Rivers employees were arrested in a roulette conspiracy. A few days later, authorities learned that a third man might have been involved in the fraud.
