Settling underage gambling allegations in Maryland

Horseshoe Casino Baltimore might end up paying $8,000, while Maryland Live pays $1,000 in sanctions to settle allegations that they allowed underage customers inside. These are two of the four Maryland casinos that have reached consent agreements with state gambling regulators to deal with the underage gambling problem. Keeping underage gamblers at bay is a huge problem for casinos who are regularly having to weed out underage customers. Some of the ways through which underage customers enter casino floors include having fake identification, which is the most common way, climbing over walls and other barriers, and making up stories with the intent of tricking the staff into allowing them access for supposedly different reasons. For example, in March, an underage Maryland Live customer was given a security badge so that he could use the bathroom, but instead, he used the security badge to gamble.
