Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing has been fined US$147,500 in Pennsylvania for two separate failings.


The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board issued a $97,500 fine for failings on Penn Interactive Ventures’ igaming and sports wagering platforms.

It added that Penn Interactive Ventures also allowed the funding of accounts using “stolen or fraudulently obtained payment devices” and the withdrawal of funds into accounts controlled by individuals conducting fraudulent behaviour.

Meanwhile, three incidents where individuals under the legal gambling age of 21 were able to access the gaming floor at Hollywood Casino York cost Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing $50,000.

The PGCB also fined Sugarhouse HSP Gaming $65,000 after incidents at Rivers Philadelphia Casino.
