Rivers Casino Facing Fines Over Slot Machine Mistakes
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – One local casino is facing fines after some mistakes with its slot machines.
According to our news partners at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, one player at the Rivers Casino won $25,000, but the payout should have been just $12.
As it turns out, the slot machine was improperly set by a technician and was returned to play without being tested or certified by state regulators, which resulted in the larger jackpot.
That incident was one of five over the last year at the casino.
It is unknown how much the casino will be fined by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board at this time.
