KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. (CBS) – The man in charge of the Valley Forge Casino Resort was in the hot seat this past week as members of the Gaming Control Board fumed about a lapse involving underage patrons on the casino’s gaming floor.
Valley Forge Casino Resort CEO Michael Bowman found himself at the receiving end of a tongue lashing over his involvement in two women under the age of 21 who did not gamble but nonetheless got access to the casino floor.
Gaming Control Board member Greg Fajt told Stephen Schrier, the lawyer representing Bowman and two other Valley Forge Casino officials, that he openly doubted their account of what happened:
“I’m just going to lay my cards on the table: Mr Schrier, no offense… I don’t believe your recitation of the facts.”
Fajt said he believed the incident underscored pressure in the resort to drive people to the gaming floor.
The gaming board fined Valley Forge Casino $35,000 for that incident and another one last year. But the board directed staff to draw up a new consent decree to punish Bowman and another Valley Forge executive.
