Underage Blackjack Gamblers Get Mohegan Sun Into Trouble, Again

For the sixth time in four years, the Mohegan Sun Casino faced the wrath of the Pennsylvania State Gaming Control Board for its failure to curb underage gambling. The casino was slapped with an $80,000 fine for two incidents involving three juvenile blackjack gamblers.

In the more disturbing of the two infractions an unnamed 20 year old player in the company of his equally unnamed parents spent more than three hours on the gaming floor playing blackjack and the slot machines. He was supplied with beer while he played.

The other case involved a 20 year old and a 19 year old, both unidentified males, playing blackjack on the floor for almost two hours.

The state police investigated the two violations. Under Pennsylvania State Law, Under 21s are prohibited from betting on, playing or attempting to play either table games or slot machines in a casino.

Mohegan Sun agreed to pay the fine and also to implement a procedure whereby anyone who looks under the age of 30 will be required to furnish identification.

The role of the parents in the first case came in for special questioning by the Gaming Board members. The two could find themselves on the State’s gamblers black list.
