Only one of eight blackjack players who were dealt hands from the short decks won. "Sugarhouse personnel did not provide the patrons with any kind of reimbursement," according to the consent agreement.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board on Wednesday fined SugarHouse Casino a total of $100,000 for dealing cards to patrons using "illegitimate" decks, including a series of incidents last year in which cards were compromised by malfunctioned automatic shufflers.

In a September 2017 poker tournament, a dealer mistakenly set the automatic shuffler not to randomly shuffle the cards, but to sort them by suit into sequence. The dealer dealt 16 poker hands before noticing the cards were suited and in sequential order. Curiously, none of the players complained, the casino said.

Carelessness and boredom seemed to be the likely explanations, said Cyrus Pitre, director of the PGCB's office of enforcement counsel. "It's complacency in regard with the red light going off on the shuffler,"  he told Barasch, who expressed consternation at the "rash" of incidents.

"What was going on in Sugarhouse that was causing this amount of mess-ups in that short time?" asked Chairman David M. Barasch, who dissented in the board's 6-1 vote to accept SugarHouse's agreement to pay an $87,500 fine for the incidents.
