GT Terminal Operator Second Street Gaming was fined for the amount of $7,500 and VGT Establishment Licensee Love’s Travel Stops & County Stores was fined $5,000. A fine of $7,500, stemming from an August 2020 theft of a total of $3,202.81 of cash and cash equivalents.

In this incident, a patron, who has since been arrested, was in the Video Gaming Area of the Loves Travel Stop in Mifflinville for over 3 hours and gained access to the cash box in the machine without video detection from either of the license holders.

Greenwood Gaming & Entertainment, operator of the Parx Casino and an iGaming certificate holder was fined $5,000. The fine stemmed from the accidental disposition by an employee of GAN, an iGaming partner of Parx, of two interactive slot machine games from a test environment into production. As a result, the games were allowed to go “live” so these games were played by patrons prior to PGCB authorization to commence interactive games.

On Wednesday, 19 May 2021 at 10:00 a.m. is scheduled the next meeting of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. The Board will announce prior to that date whether the meeting will be held online or in the PGCB’s Public Hearing Room.
