Rivers Casino Philadelphia will pay a $10,000 fine for abusing its own interior controls after a club worker duplicated reconnaissance video on his own cellphone to show to an aggressive client who was questioning the result of a losing hand of blackjack.
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board on Wednesday endorsed an assent arrangement between its authorization office and Sugarhouse HSP Gaming, the club administrator, for the Jan. 24 scene during which a client playing Spanish 21 blackjack didn’t permit the seller to recover a losing $300 bet.
While trying to determine the squabble, a security shift director went to the observation seeing room, recorded reconnaissance video of the contested hand on his own cell, then, at that point got back to the club floor and showed it to the client, who then, at that point permitted the losing $300 bet to be gathered.

Be that as it may, the security shift director disregarded the club’s interior controls when he duplicated the video without authorization of the observation room chief. Those interior controls were supported by the gaming board, and the club is compelled by a sense of honor to follow them.
Under the assent understanding, Rivers Philadelphia organized approaches to “make it plain that no video accounts are to be taken and eliminated,” and recordings will be accessible just to “approved offices,” John M. Donnelly, a club attorney, told the commission.
No disciplinary move was made against the security shift boss who replicated the video to his telephone.
The supporter who attempted to hold his losing bet was forever ousted from Rivers Philadelphia. He could play online slots instead.
