Mohegan Sun Pocono receives a whopping $1 million fine. This is happens this week. The fine is the biggest so far by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB). The fine includes a $550, 000 for the casino’s failure to follow internal modalities. According to PGC Board, failure to follow internal controls leads to doom. The gambling control body believes the failure let to a scam. One of facility’s executives finally cons the casino $420, 000. Five hundred dollars is not the only fine the facility gets. The gaming control body imposes an extra $450, 000. The latter penalty is for its engagement with companies that do not have a license.

The facility has a history of bad traits. This is at least among some of its executives. In February, the facility’s former VP for Player Development goes to prison. Robert Pellegrini goes to prison for 32 months. According to authorities, the former VP of Player development is fraudulent.  Pellegrini takes part in a scam that involves the use of stolen cards. The executive uses these cards that have clients PIN numbers. He then gives his accomplices to use them to play games for free. Other stiffer findings involve the facility’s failure to track activities. The gaming body maintains that Mohegan Sun Pocono fails to track loyalty scheme.

PGCB finds out that Pellegrini uses a cocktail waitress. The lady goes around doing her usual serving thing. While doing this, she copies clients’ numbers. Rochelle Poszeluznyj makes sure that she notes down customers’ numbers. At the end of the day, she passes them to Pellegrini. On his part, he creates fake cards.

The counterfeit cards the former VP for Player Development come with complimentary spins. All these are happening between May 2014 and April 2015. There is another accomplice. This time it is Mark Joseph Heltzel. In Mark’s case, he uses bogus loyalty rewards in doing many things. The player makes a lot of money. He later divides the money among the three. They are all serving prison sentences.

Illegal Intimacy

The other penalty involves on the casino’s dealings with unlicensed companies.  Robert Soper, Mohegan Sun Pocono CEO signs deals with unlicensed companies. He is in the gaming industry for many years. All these years he is in top managerial positions. Some of the companies he signs deals with are CB POC. This firm does not have a license yet it operates Johnny Rockets. The firm also operates Wok8 and Betty & Joe’s Coffee Shop. All these shops are at Mohegan Sun.

The other company without license is Refer Local. This is an e-commerce marketing company. 
Before the seating of the PGCB, the CEO resigns. He also does not disclose that he has personal business interests with one of the companies. He has shares with Refer Local.  Check out the latest casino news at CasinoFetch.com. 

The former CEO’s actions lead him to receive a fine of $60, 000 in November.  PGCB finds out that the main illegality is when an employee lies. In this case, an employee announces that a player wins a large sum of money. This is to take the difference. The player receives the prize but the employee takes the difference. Mohegan Sun Pocono is taking steps to clear past messes.
