Winnings from Minors and Self-Excluded Persons Will be Forfeited by New Jersey Casinos
These include Golden Nugget Atlantic City, Ocean Casino Resort, Parx Casino at Freehold Raceway, Resorts Casino Hotel, Bally’s Atlantic City, and Harrah’s Resorts Atlantic City. The New Jersey casinos are ordered to lose a portion of their earnings after breaking the state’s regulations in October on the NJ legal gambling age and self-exclusion policies.
The worst affected was Resorts Casino, which lost $51,643 in winnings. Four forfeiture orders were given to the casino, the biggest of which was $33,590 for permitting a player who had self-excluded to play.
Ocean Casino, meanwhile, will forfeit $7,403 in earnings from minors and other identity-related violations. Additionally, $5,621 in earnings from players who had self-excluded in New Jersey would be forfeited by Bally’s.
Due to underage gaming, self-exclusion failure, and insufficient ID checks, Golden Nugget will lose $4,232. Moreover, Harrah’s will forfeit $886 for allowing underage gambling.
Parx Casino at Freehold Raceway will lose $4,427 in wins from patrons who self-excluded.
It was also disclosed that Rush Street Interactive and DraftKings have received fines in New Jersey.
A fine of $7,500 has been rendered against DraftKings for permitting a person who has self-excluded to open an online account. Even though the player was enrolled in the New Jersey self-exclusion program, they were still permitted to make bets.
The fine against Rush Street Interactive stems from the company’s acceptance of bets on prohibited events and pre-match betting on games that had already begun. The operator will be hit with a $2,500 fine.
