NJ regulators fine casinos $33K for rule violations

Four Atlantic City casinos and an Internet gambling firm must forfeit winnings and pay fines totaling more than $33,000 for various gambling rule violations.

The New Jersey Gaming Enforcement Division issued the penalties earlier this month, and made them public on Monday.

The Trump Taj Mahal must forfeit more than $16,000 it won from three gamblers who had signed up for a self-exclusion list that prohibits them from gambling.

The Borgata must forfeit more than $3,700 it confiscated from gamblers who could not prove they were 21 years old.

Resorts was fined $3,000 for cashier rule violations, and bwin.party, an online affiliate of the Borgata, was fined $10,000 for violating the terms of a divestiture agreement by one of its stockholders.
