Pennsylvania regulator fines Live! Casino Pittsburgh, Parx’s restaurant and gaming manufacturer totaling $32,5K

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) approved Wednesday three consent agreements between the PGCB’s Office of Enforcement Counsel and Live! Casino Pittsburgh, a restaurant at Parx Casino in Bensalem, and a manufacturer resulting in a total of $32,500 in fines for different breaches.

The consent agreements approved Wednesday involve:

  • CPC Bucks County, LLC, d/b/a/ Chickie’s and Pete’s, a fine of $17,500 for overservice of alcohol to patrons;
  • Stadium Casino Westmoreland, LLC, operator of Live! Casino Pittsburgh, a fine of $7,500 for a self-exclusion violation;
  • TDN Money Systems, Inc., a fine of $7,500 for failure to notify the Board of a change of control of the company.

CPC Bucks County, LLC operates a Chickie’s and Pete’s restaurant at Parx Casino in Bensalem. The $17,500 fine stemmed from three incidents involving six patrons who were overserved alcohol at the restaurant leading to visible intoxication of each of the individuals.

Stadium Casino Westmoreland, a subsidiary of The Cordish Companies, was assessed a $7,500 fine for an incident that involved a Self-Excluded individual who was able to gamble at table games and receive a cash advance at the Live! Pittsburgh Casino facility it operates. Pursuant to PGCB regulations, a casino must identify self-excluded patrons and refuse gaming privileges and other gaming-related activities such as the cashing of checks or cash advances.

The $7,500 fine against TDN Money Systems, Inc., designated by the Board as a Manufacturer Designee, stemmed from an incident in which the manufacturer because failed to timely provide the Board with a change of control notification when the wholly-owned company was divested to two other licensed individuals.

The next meeting of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is scheduled for 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, July 20, 2022, in the PGCB’s Public Hearing Room located on the second floor of the Strawberry Square Complex in Harrisburg.
