New Jersey regulators have seized more than $107,000 won by the underaged or prohibited gamblers at Atlantic City‘s Borgata casino. The regulators also issued a fine of $81,000 for the Borgata’s online gambling partner, bwin.party.

The Borgata says it takes gambling compliance seriously and notes that it discovered and reported the illegal gamblers to the state on its own.

“Borgata’s team members are well trained on responsible gaming policies, and we approach these requirements with the utmost importance,” said Marcus Glover, the casino’s president. “Borgata consistently self-reports to uphold our operational integrity, as indicated by the instances of forfeited funds rather than fines. Our company’s record of supporting regulatory efforts is unmatched and we will always strive to uphold the highest standards, not only in compliance, but in customer care and harm minimisation.”

Bwin.party was fined for the violation after the state determined it incorrectly processed player requests to be removed from the self-exclusion list; Borgata was not. Instead, the casino had to forfeit the money it confiscated from the illegal gamblers.
