Bally's fined $17,500 in underage drinking case

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - February 4, 2014

The state Gaming Enforcement Division imposed the fine on Bally's Atlantic City on Jan. 23.

The decision was made public on Monday.

Bally's did not respond to a request for comment, but the division noted both sides had agreed to the penalty under a settlement.

Officials say the casino served a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old three alcoholic beverages without asking for identification on Aug. 21.

Within an hour, a casino security found the 17-year-old visibly intoxicated on the casino floor, and called an ambulance.

The minimum age for drinking - and gambling - in New Jersey is 21.
