SugarHouse fined for discrepancy in slot settings

A slot machine undergoing testing at Philadelphia's SugarHouse casino.

SugarHouse Casino was fined $58,000 by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board for running 12 slot machines with settings that didn't match those reported to regulators. The discrepancy could have caused the theoretical payout percentage to be different than expected during the 148 days in question last year.

"We respect the decision of the Gaming Board and have put procedures in place to prevent recurrence," a spokesman for SugarHouse said. At its meeting Wednesday the gaming board also renewed the license for Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Dauphin County. - Harold Brubaker
