Gambling regulator in one of the most pro-gambling states in the US has slapped a $150,000 fine on tribal casino Mohegan Sun Pocono.
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board upon investigation found that the gambling facility did not comply with the minimum security staffing requirement which is a violation of its licensing terms.
The Gaming Control Board observed that there were 91 days between January 3 to April 28, 2019, when the gambling facility did not have the required minimum security staff at the venue.
According to the official statement issued by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, the fine comes as a part of the Board approval at its public meeting of a consent agreement between the PGCB’s Office of Enforcement Counsel and the casino operator.
Recently, online betting operator Unibet partnered with Mohegan Sun Pocono to launch its sports betting operations in Pennsylvania.
Earlier this year in May, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approved a sports betting license for Mohegan Sun Pocono.
Pennsylvania is amongst the early adopters of sports betting after the US supreme court legalized it. It was the fourth state to legalize sports betting, only after New Jersey, Delaware, and Nevada.
