The Ohio Casino Control Commission today voted to accept a settlement agreement with JACK Cincinnati Casino regarding compliance sanctions at the property. The agreement includes a $40,000 fine.
During audits conducted by Commission staff, it was discovered that for more than seven months, JACK Cincinnati failed to maintain and submit an accurate inventory of its electronic gaming equipment as required by Ohio Administrative Code. In addition, Commission staff also determined JACK Cincinnati operated 35 slot machines with unapproved software configurations, in violation of Ohio law.
“Having a complete and accurate inventory of all gaming equipment is essential to the integrity of gaming in Ohio,” said June Taylor, Chair of the Ohio Casino Control Commission. “The sanctions levied against JACK Cincinnati will help ensure their compliance with both the law and the casino’s own internal controls, and reinforces our commitment to maintaining a fair environment for all players.”
JACK Cincinnati is also required to provide its employees with remedial training of all laws, policies and procedures relevant to their individual functions as part of the settlement agreement. This is the fourth instance in which the Cincinnati casino has been sanctioned by the Commission. All fines levied by the Commission are deposited into the State’s General Revenue Fund.
