Borgata and Revel Casinos Fined for Casino Violations

Borgata and Revel Casinos Fined for Casino Violations

In August last year, a 19 year old male was caught gambling at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa. After four hours of playing on the slot machines, the youth was escorted out of the casino by police and a complaint was filed by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

Borgata and Revel Casinos Fined for Casino Violations

Two Atlantic Casinos have been fined for allowing underage drinking and gambling as well as video recording a marriage proposal without prior permission.

In a separate incident in May last year, a 19 year old female was given permission to enter the MurMur nightclub which is located at the Borgata Casino.

The young lady used her sister’s ID card to enter the nightclub premises and was also served alcohol at the blackjack table without being asked to produce any identification.

As a result, the Division of Gaming Enforcement fined the Borgata Casino $24,000 for allowing underage patrons to drink and gamble.

Meanwhile, the Revel Casino was also fined $2,500 for filming a marriage proposal that occurred at the casino. This proposal was then broadcast on the video monitors which are located on the casino floor. This act violated the rule which states that you need to provide a five day advance notice to the Division of Gaming Enforcement when filming in gambling areas. Both casinos have declined to comment on these fines.
