It was the one to mend the contaminated brown field, constructed hotel and helped the regional schools and kitchens by granting money.

According to our correspondents from eSports news, Gaming board has made certain norms, which they believe should be followed very strictly. However, Sands casino failed to do so and hence will have to endure the punishment.  Among all the rules framed by the board, one rule states that 21 is the minimum legal age at which an individual is considered eligible to gamble.  However, this protocol was not followed by the Casino, thereby allowing individuals under 21 to play gambling. Moreover, this rule was broken not once or twice, but a total number of eleven times. To add in to, these individuals were also offered alcohol.

Along with this, one other protocol was also breached where according to the protocol, only empowered employees can permit grant to a complimentary slot play.

According to the Spokesperson of PGCB, Richard McGarvey, the board is just doing its duty especially when it comes to discipline and regulations.
