NJ: Trop Allowed Gambling 14-year-old
New Jersey casino regulators are considering fines against several gambling halls for allowing people to gamble who shouldn’t have, including a 14-year-old boy who played slots at the Tropicana.
The state Division of Gaming Enforcement is preparing to act on complaints filed by the state Attorney General’s Office against several casinos for allowing underage or self-excluded gamblers to play. They also involve other violations of casino regulations.
The Tropicana is accused of letting a 14-year-old boy play slots in August. According to the state, a casino security guard walked right past him without doing anything.
The boy was questioned by DGE investigators and admitted he was just 14.
The state didn’t reveal how much he lost or won.
Gamblers must be 21 to wager in New Jersey casinos.
