Don’t mess aided by the Ohio Casino Control Act, the Ohio Administrative Code, or the Casino Internal Controls into the ‘Birthplace of Aviation’ state; they are viewing you, and watching you closely. And so the swank Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland is finding out, after being hit for a second time this present year with fines for not doing things the kosher way.
The fine that is first a slot machine being released to the casino with unapproved pc software; that was just a $15,000 hit, which up to a casino, is like a cop giving you a ticket for a penny. But now, the pricing is increasing, after multiple additional and random violations were reported, and now the slap has moved to a spank with a total of $180,000.
Among the odd melange of wrongdoings were utilizing dice from unapproved vendors in Fortune Pai Gow poker; encouraging cocktail waitresses to come into restricted game pit areas; removing, storing and shipping three slot machines along with their software (no indication of to whom or why this is wrong); and…drum roll, please…the worst sin a casino can perpetrate: failing woefully to include the hotline contact number on their ‘When the Fun Stops’ issue gambling adverts. Whoops.
