Report says several employees cheated over 9-month span

The Mark Twain Casino in La Grange has been fined $50,000 by the Missouri Gaming Commission over allegations of cheating by employees.

The Commission issued the fine earlier this week against HGI - Mark Twain, LLC, due to incidents that happened between December 2016 and August 2017. In a report, the Commission says that on August 1st, 2017, Mark Twain Casino's Surveillance Manager and the Director of Casino Operations notified a Gaming Commission agent of "multiple cheating incidents involving casino employees and patrons at table games." They say that a dealer was changing the outcome of the Craps game by failing to clear losing bets on the table, which resulted in paying patrons for losing bets. They add that the Casino's Pit Manager allowed the cheating to take place, and that none of the activity was identified by surveillance or the table game supervisor. The report also says that the Casino lost over $50,000 of table game revenue in one month. It admits it's not sure what the total loss to the Casino was over the 9 months. The dealer, Pit Manager, and Table Games Supervisor have all been charged with Gambling violations in Lewis County. Two have pleaded guilty, and the third is awaiting trial.

The full report is available below.
