HANOVER, Md. (AP)- More than two dozen instances of underage gambling at Maryland casinos will cost casino operators tens of thousands of dollars in fines.

A consent agreement signed last week by gambling regulators and earlier by Maryland Live casino marks the state's first financial penalty for underage violations. Under the agreement, Maryland Live agreed to pay $20,000 for four incidents of underage gambling. Soon Hollywood Casino in Perryville will pay $10,000 for two similar incidents.

There have been 30 known violations of underage gambling this year. The state can impose a maximum fine of $5,000 per incident.

Joe Weinberg, managing partner for Maryland Live casino, says casino operators will work toward zero tolerance at the 21-and-older establishment.

There is no state penalty for the young people who violate the policy.
