PGCB Fines Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course $13,000

This week the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board voted to fine Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course $13,000 for operating blackjack tables even though decks for the games were missing a card.

The regulator fined the casino’s parent company “Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association” the large cash fine given the fact that the Hollywood Casino ran two gaming tables, “Spanish 21” and a standard blackjack game knowing that the games were missing cards. The incident took place in April of this year.

Hollywood Casino at Penn national Race Course first opened in 2008, with table games going live in 2010. The casino has 2,480 slot machines and 54 tables. Besides blackjack, the casino also offers poker, roulette, craps, and Pai Gow.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board was founded in 2004 and serves as the Keystone State’s gaming regulator, overseeing the casino and horse racing industry. The state currently taxes slot revenues at a rate of 55%, while table game taxes stand at 14%.
