Grand Falls To Pay Fine For Gambling Violation

Northwood, Iowa — The Grand Falls Casino near Larchwood agreed to a fine for a gambling violation this past week at the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission meeting at the Diamond Jo Worth Casino in Northwood.

Commission administrator, Brian Ohorilko says the violation was discovered at Grand Falls when a minor was stopped from entering the gambling floor.

Ohorilko says the male minor was not challenged by security in the first visit.

He says this is the second violation by Grand Falls in the last 365 days — which is why the penalty was 20-thousand. A third violation in the same time period would result in a 30-thousand dollar fine.

The Lakeside Casino in Osceola also agreed to a fine at the meeting this week. Theirs resulted from a violation of the rules for gamblers who have banned themselves from casinos. An individual who was on that list received promotional mailings and shouldn’t have.
