'Incorrect rules' for new table game costs PENN

Feb 25, 2013 7:08 PM

A new table game was introduced at a casino in Columbus, Ohio, that became very expensive for the operator, Penn National Gaming Inc. (PENN) when “incorrect rules” were applied.

According to newspaper reports, gamblers stood in line to play “Crazy 4 Poker” when it was first introduced. “It was like a free holiday” said one casino customer.

The game, when played properly, requires the player place a “super bonus bet” equal to the original ante. The rules failed to note the need for the “super bonus bet” giving all players a free ride.

The table was shut down while company officials re-submitted the correct rules to the Ohio Casino Control Commission for approval.
