Atlantic City Casinos Face Fines for Numerous Violations
New Jersey casino regulators have fined two Atlantic City casinos nearly $200,000 for violations including using unshuffled cards, and not having enough security on hand.
The state Division of Gaming Enforcement announced the fines Monday.
Bally’s Atlantic City was fined $105,000 for allowing people on the self-exclusion list to gamble, letting an underage patron gamble, and not fully staffing required security positions.
The Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort was fined more than $91,000 for using unshuffled cards for 3 1/2 hours in games of mini-baccarat. The state also confiscated more than $4,000 won by self-excluded gamblers at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
The casinos admitted the violations and have taken corrective actions, including suspending or firing several employees.
