USA Today– The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has fined a casino $25,000 for serving a gambler 27 alcoholic drinks in a nine-hour period.
Mount Airy Casino Resort says it won’t comment on the fine. The gambling board says the fine was levied as part of a consent agreement, meaning the casino isn’t contesting the penalty.
The board says the customer was playing table-top slot machines at a casino bar when he was served. The board found the customer was showing signs of intoxication after nine drinks, meaning the bartenders served him 18 drinks after he was obviously drunk.
Are we supposed to be impressed? The Rio Las Vegas once let me drink a fifth of Grey Goose straight from the bottle while playing blackjack. (Read that story here) Where was the outcrying that night?
My favorite part of this is “The board found the customer was showing signs of intoxication after nine drinks.” Do you think?! And how about this guy playing bartop machines for nine straight hours? That might be more impressive than the 27 rum and cokes…
