The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission (IRGC) Approves Fines for a Casino
There is news regarding imposing a fine due to the violation of rules by a casino and two sports betting companies. The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission (IRGC) has recently fined $20,000 to the Wild Rose Casino in Jefferson. What has this casino done in rules violation? The answer is that the Wild Rose Casino allows a girl of just 20-year to play the gambling game. The General Manager of the casino, Travis Dvorak, says that we apologize to the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission, and we accept full responsibility for this event.
Further, Dvorak expresses that we strictly abide by all the rules and regulations related to gaming set by the Commission. We have celebrated the sixth birthday of the Wild Rose Casino this Tuesday, and it is the only twice when we have done violation of rules set by the Commission. In addition, Dvorak says that the number of visitors is almost 27000000 in the six years. He mentions that we could catch the violation of the rule, but it was not easy for us. The reason he explains is that the girl’s father was assisting her in the game. If the father distracts the security guard and blocks the way to save his daughter, we still can catch her. It is something in which we have gained special training. But we accept the responsibility.
The Plea of Wild Rose Casino
Additionally, Dvorak claims that DCI fined the daughter’s father, and the county attorney prosecuted him. He adds in the discussion that the same father and daughter tried to repeat the act eight days later. The father lied that his daughter is 22 years old, but he was not aware that the casino possessed a copy of her father’s license. He further reports that these are some instances of the challenges that we regularly face in the casino. Moreover, we take such matters very cautiously.
Further, Dvorak says that since it was a period of COVID-19 pandemic and it was necessary to wear masks for all the visitors and guests that is why this issue became more complicated. Hence, now we have got some training to identify the visitors and guests while covering their faces with masks.
Two Sports Betting Companies are Fined By the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission (IRGC)
There is news that IRGC approves fines for two sports betting companies. If we talk about the fine, the Racing and Gaming Commission has fined $20,000 to the William Hill Sports Book when two betting machines were left on by mistake. It is necessary to make in-person registration for all the gamers to use the mobile sports app. But they allowed the person to play the mobile sports app without having in-person registration. Therefore, the Commission fined almost $500 to the PointsBet Iowa. The reason for this fine was that the self-exclusion list was not updated well. Moreover, the spokesperson of the PointsBet Iowa says that now they have met all the necessary requirements. Also, they have made changes according to the rules and regulations set by the Racing and Gaming Commission.
