The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has had its hands full over the past several months. There have been inspections of new casinos and also the task of keeping order at the existing casinos. That task will grow even more next year when new casinos open up.

Part of the way that state gaming boards keep order is to send messages. On Wednesday, one of those messages was delivered from the Pennsylvania Board when they fined Harrah's Chester Casino $45,000.

The fine was handed out because the gaming board found that the casino did not properly handle the situation involving a disruptive patron last year. The state has never levied a fine that harsh for this type of regulations infraction, but clearly this was the delivery of a message.

"The state of Pennsylvania has been expanding their casino gambling options and the state needs the new casinos to understand that the regulations must be followed," said Gaming Analyst Steve Schwartz, "By fining Harrah's, the new casinos now understand that any violations will not be tolerated."

Even though the patron in this case was causing a disturbance, the gaming commission found that security at the Chester Casino did not handle the situation properly. They felt that the way security handled the problem placed the patron at risk of bodily harm.

The security guard in question has been fired, but that did not stop the commission from coming down hard with the fine. The casino has agreed to update their surveillance equipment as a result of the investigation.
