|A US dollars 100,000 fine could be the price Harrah’s St Louis Casino will pay for a promotional mail out gone wrong. The Missouri Gaming Commission recommended the hefty fine against the casino for sending promotional material to a woman who is listed on the state’s restricted list.|
If the fine is applied it will be the largest fine handed down by the commission for this type of an offense.
According to Associated Press, Harrah’s spokesman said they would never purposely try to advertise to someone who is on the state’s restricted list.
The list is voluntary for those with gambling problems, who opt to be arrested if they enter a casino. Their names are also deleted from all mailing lists.
Harrah’s have 30 days to appeal the commission's decision.
