Bethlehem, Pennsylvania – Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem is fined $22,500 for mixing cards

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has fined Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem $22,500 because its dealers mixed Blackjack cards from different decks on two separate occasions. The casino reported the infractions to the gaming control board as soon they were noticed, but by the time they were reported, 194 hands had already been dealt.

“The game is supposed to use a specific number of cards. When you add cards it throws off the integrity of the whole game. This is a way of the board saying, ‘We think that’s serious and you have to do something to prevent it from happening in the future.'” said Richard McGarvey, Gaming Control Board spokesman.
