Atlantic City Casinos Hit With More Underage Gambling Fines

Atlantic City casinos may be struggling, but that does not mean that they are going to be allowed to offer gambling to underage patrons. On Wednesday, the New Jersey Casino Control Commission again made that point loud and clear.

Fines were handed down to Bally's Atlantic City and Caesars Atlantic City casinos. The casinos are owned by the same company and were represented at the Wednesday hearing by Attorney William J. Downey.

Bally's was fined $55,000 for an incident that occurred back in June of 2008. They allowed a teenage boy to play roulette and he was busted by state gaming investigators. The legal age for gambling in Atlantic City is twenty-one.

The Caesars incident involved a twenty year old woman who was playing blackjack. The woman won over $8,000 playing, but was also busted by gaming investigators. It was the second time in a few week span that the woman was arrested for underage gambling. The Caesars fine was $30,000.

Despite the poor economy and sharp revenue declines, regulators in New Jersey have been unsympathetic to casinos that have been caught in violation of the gambling age limit laws. There have been several fines handed down to various casinos throughout 2009.

Atlantic City casinos are not only facing increased pressure from gaming regulators, but also from casinos in other state4s. Pennsylvania and New York have increased their gambling options with the intent of coming after Atlantic City's customer base.
