Mountainview Thoroughbred Racing Association and BetMGM have been fined $7,500 by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

The penalties, handed out by the Board’s Office of Enforcement Council, relate to BetMGM accepting sports wagers on the Victor Belfort vs. Evander Holyfield boxing match in September 2021.

The PGCB said it specifically notified all operators that wagering on this event would not be permitted, but BetMGM – the sports wagering partner of Mountainview – accepted 76 wagers.

Meanwhile, the Pennsylvania regulator and the OEC have also banned five adults from casinos in the state for leaving five children unattended in order to gamble.

The regulator said: “The Board’s actions serve as a reminder that adults are prohibited from leaving minors unattended in the parking lot or garage, a hotel, or other venues at a casino since it creates a potentially unsafe and dangerous environment for the children.

“Leaving minors unattended at a Pennsylvania casino also subjects the offending adult to criminal prosecution in addition to exclusion from all Pennsylvania casinos. The PGCB is reporting that during 2022 it has identified 285 incidents of adults leaving children unattended to gamble at Pennsylvania casinos involving 464 minors.”
