Atlantic City casino owner fined for gambling

Tilman Fertitta is an American businessman and the founder of Landry’s Restaurants. The billionaire from Galveston, Texas, has been so successful in business that he was able to buy his own casino. He’s the proud of owner of Golden Nugget Atlantic City a hotel and casino complex with its own marina in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

However, casino owners need to watch out when they gamble. Tilman Fertitta, it seems, was not aware that key casino employees and owners are banned from gambling in Atlantic City! The millionaire was caught playing blackjack at two Atlantic City casinos last year and was later sentenced to a fine of $15,000 by gambling regulators.

The billionaire has agreed to pay the $15,000 fine. The casino owner just did not know about the rule. Now that he knows that he’s ban from gambling in Atlantic City, he will make sure to stay away from the blackjack tables. Nothing stops him from jumping on his private jet to head off to Macau or the French Riviera. He is also allowed to gamble in Nevada except at his own casino. The fine will certainly have taught him not to violate again the law that bars holders of a key casino employee license from gambling in Atlantic City.
