SHELBYVILLE, Ind. (AP) - State officials handed down more than $150,000 in fines to a central Indiana casino for violating a range of gaming rules.
The Indianapolis Business Journal reports Indiana Live will face its biggest penalty of more than $75,000 for mistakenly sending promotions to customers who had opted out of getting casino solicitations. The casino also was cited by the Indiana Gaming Commission for alcohol violations, including casino officials drinking well past the 3 a.m. cutoff time for serving liquor and an official admitting he was intoxicated when he left the casino in his vehicle.
Commission executive director Ernest Yelton says the commission rarely doles out that much in fines.
The casino's parent company filed for bankruptcy last April.
The Associated Press left a message Friday seeking comment from Indiana Live.
