Two Maryland Casinos Fined For Instances Of Underage Gambling

Two casinos in Maryland are being fined for more than two dozen incidents of underage gambling.

Maryland Live! Casino agreed to pay $20,000 for four incidents of underage gambling. Soon Hollywood Casino in Perryville will pay $10,000 for two similar incidents.

The fines are the result of a consent agreement signed last week by gambling regulators and earlier by Maryland Live! This marks the state's first financial penalty for underage gambling violations.

There've been at least 30 known violations of underage gambling this year. The state can impose a maximum fine of $5,000 dollars per incident.

Joe Weinberg, managing partner for Maryland Live!, says casino operators will work toward zero tolerance at the 21-and-older establishment. Right now, there is no state penalty for underage people who violate the policy.
