Jul 9, 2012 8:20 PM

Lack of management supervision of one of its operations in Atlantic City has become costly for Caesars Entertainment Corp. (CZR).

Bally’s Atlantic City, one of the Caesars’ properties, was fined $105,000 for allegedly allowing an underage patron to gamble, allowing self-banned people to gamble, and generally for failing to fully staff the property with security personnel.

Also fined was Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort. The property was fined $91,236 for failing to shuffle eight decks of cards before using them at a mini-baccarat game. Reportedly, the casino used the un-shuffled cards for three and one-half hours and its surveillance department did not detect that the cards had not been shuffled.
