Gaming Control Board levies fine for unapproved poker tournaments at Pennsylvania casino
 

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) today fined Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association, LLC, operator of Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Dauphin County, $20,000 for conducting poker tournaments that had not been approved by the agency.

The fine was the result of a Board approval at its public meeting of a consent agreement between the PGCB’s Office of Enforcement Counsel and Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association, LLC.

The PA Gaming Act mandates that table games staffing plans, tournament schedules, dealer training programs and schematics of gaming guides, table layouts, signage and equipment be submitted to the PGCB for approval by the Executive Director. That was not done for four poker tournaments held in 2019 at Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course.

The next meeting of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, 12 February 2020 in the PGCB’s Public Hearing Room located on the second floor of the Strawberry Square Complex in Harrisburg.
