The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board fined Mount Airy Casino Resort $120,000 Wednesday for a series of auditing failures and revoked licenses of three Live! Philadelphia sportsbook employees for improperly taking bets that cost the casino $95,000.

The actions were among decisions at the board’s monthly meeting that resulted in a total of $147,500 in fines imposed on three casinos and placement of 12 individuals on the state’s involuntary exclusion list, which bars them from entering Pennsylvania’s 17 casinos.

The seven-member board had its strongest words for officials of Mount Airy, a family-owned casino in the Poconos region that has more than 800 employees and draws more than $180 million in annual slots and table games revenue.
