Indiana Gaming Commission Fines Horseshoe Casino Hotel
Casinos around the country are held to an extremely high standard when it comes to state law. Gaming Commission's in each state are constantly monitoring casinos to ensure that their rules are being upheld.
When a casino is found to be in violation of these rules, it usually results in a fine. If the violations happen continuously, the casinos could risk losing their licenses in the state.
The Horseshoe Casino Hotel in Harrison County, Indiana has received one of these fines from the Indiana Gaming Control Board. The fine stems from allowing a gambler who was on the states voluntary exclusion program to place bets in the casino.
In addition to the fine, which equalled $59,000, a dealer from the casino was also suspended for two days in an unrelated violation of the state gaming regulations. The casino has agreed to pay the fines.
Horseshoe also claims that they are working diligently with their employees to not make the mistakes that have happened in the past. They are concerned, however, that people who sign up for the exclusion programs can sometimes be difficult to spot.
These people come in under fake names and sometimes do not even have to show identification to gamble. That leaves the casino responsible for keeping up with names and faces of people who have joined the exclusion program.
