Atlantic City casinos are fined $14,000 for allowing underage and self-excluded gamblers to play

Three Atlantic City casinos have been fined a total of $14,000 for allowing underage and self-excluded gamblers to play. Resorts Casino Hotel was ordered to pay almost $7,200 which includes a $6,000 fine and the forfeiture of the money won from self-excluded players between February and April of 2015. Resorts allowed ten people on a self-exclusion list to create Internet betting accounts. Nine of those people used the Internet betting accounts to gamble. According to the gambling enforcement division, the violations were the result of a computer programming error. The Borgata paid nearly $5,000 for allowing 66 underage gamblers to play at slot machines and table games between 2011 and 2015. Tropicana Casino and Resort was ordered to pay nearly $2,200 for similar offenses between 2013 and 2015.
