The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has levied fines of a total of $17,500. Two licensees were related to the theft of video gaming terminals at a truck stop and an igaming certificate holder who allowed the deployment of unapproved online games.
The consent agreements between the PGCB’s Office of Enforcement Counsel and the license holders were approved by the board at the regulator’s public meeting.
A fine of $7,500 was levied against VGT terminal operator Second Street Gaming. And a fine of $5,000 against VGT establishment licensee Love’s Travel Stops & County Stores. This was following the theft of $3,202.81 in cash and cash equivalents in August 2020
A patron was in the video gaming area of the Loves Travel Stop in Mifflinville. He was there for above three hours during the incident and has since been arrested. He gained access to the machine’s cash box without video detection from either of the license holders.
Furthermore, Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment, the operator of the Parx Casino and an igaming certificate holder, received the third sanction.
This was because of an employee of GAN, a Parx online casino partner. He accidentally deployed two interactive slot machine games from a test environment into production.
This allowed the games to go “live,” allowing patrons to play them before regulatory authorization issued to begin interactive games.
