The Hollywood Casino in Toledo are facing a $4,000 fine from the Ohio Casino Control Commission, after they have operated at least four slot machines that were not proper sealed or verified by the Commission, the Toledo Blade reports. The commission sent a letter to the Hollywood Casino in April regarding the issue and are considering a settlement of $4,000 to close the issue.
Operating slot machines that are not proper sealed or verified is against the regulatory rules. The slot machines had been running for a total of 251 days before it was noticed by the casino in October last year.
“This was a procedural violation and did not impact the outcome of play on the machines. Our investigation found the software was identical to what was tested and approved by the commission,” Spokesman for the commission, Tama Davis stated to the Toledo Blade.
Besides the $4,000 fine, the casino is also looking at having to audit all games on the casino floor, ensuring that all games are properly sealed and verified as the law states as well as ensure that the casino personal has the proper training. The commission did however state that the games had been running as they should and that no outcome had been tampered with.
It is not the first time that the Hollywood Casino has been fined due to offering unsealed games, as they offered three slot machines that were unsealed and unverified in 2012 as well as offering table games that were not under survelliance.
