(Harrisburg) -- Three Pennsylvania casinos, including one in Dauphin County, have been fined a total of nearly $300,000 for violating state regulations. 

The state Gaming Control Board says Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course in Grantville has been cited for failing to properly vet credit applications. It must pay $70,000.

A $200,000 fine has been issued to the Valley Forge Casino Resort for a promotion that circumvented a law requiring patrons to pay 10 dollars to enter the facility. A Valley Forge spokesman says the casino works hard to comply with the complicated regulation while still trying to attract customers.

Sugarhouse Casino in Philadelphia has been fined $20,000 for allowing a banned gambler to wager. A spokesman says Sugarhouse takes the matter seriously and respects the board's decision.
