Trump Marina Hotel and Casino, Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino, and KGM Gaming have been fined a total of $58,000 for failing to notify the state Division of Gaming Enforcement about the installation of 27 new slot machines at the casinos.

The casinos operators and the installer failed to file the mandate paper work with the division.

Trump Marina was fined $35,000, Trump Plaza $3,000 and KGM Gaming $20,000 fine.

“We have strong regulations in place to ensure integrity with casino operations in Atlantic City,” Gaming Enforcement Director David Rebuck said Thursday. “We need to make it clear that the division will not tolerate when those regulations are violated.”

In this case, KGM, an authorized distributor of slot machines, failed to file the required transactional waiver to deliver the machines to the casinos. Trump Marina and Trump Plaza failed to follow procedures necessary to ensure that a waiver was filed and approved prior to the acceptance of the machines.

Seven unauthorized machines at Trump Marina were on the floor from April 20, 2009 to June 16, 2009. During the two months, Trump Marina saw $215,502 in winnings from the unauthorized machines. In the case of Trump Plaza, 22 machines were on the floor from May 7, 2009 to June 16, 2009. The total in unauthorized machine winnings at Trump Plaza was $181,326.

The fine money will go to the Casino Revenue Fund, which supports treatment and education programs for compulsive gamblers and programs that benefit senior citizens and persons with disabilities.
