Caesars Interactive Entertainment was forced to pay a $15,000 fine to the New Jersey Division of Gaming due to the failings of a third party to adhere to responsible gaming precautions.
In April the third party supplier solicited those that had been added to the company's self-exclusion list. The DGE fined CIE, who paid a similar fine in 2014, for encouraging self-excluded gamblers to register online casino accounts and allowing 5 players to wager. The company is also accused of sending gambling marketing material to over 200 of those on the self-exclusion list.
Caesars spokesman Seth Palansky said: “We self-reported this error to the DGE after we were notified by our third-party provider a lapse in procedure occurred. We regret the error, and apologize to those affected by it. We accept the punishment and will work more diligently to avoid a repeat mistake.”
