Caesars Pays $15,000 for Online Gaming Violation

caesars-interactiveCaesars Interactive Entertainment is the online gambling section of the Caesars Entertainment company, providing online gaming options for players located within the borders of New Jersey. The New Jersey Gaming Enforcement Division has fined the group $15,000 for an online gambling violation involving gamblers who are on the self-exclusion list of the state.

According to the fine, the gaming group allowed gamblers who were self-excluded to create online gambling accounts. Five individuals were actually allowed to place wagers online. The Gaming Enforcement Division also claimed that Caesars sent out marketing materials to 231 gamblers who were on the self-exclusion list, soliciting business.
