    New Jersey has fined two Atlantic City casinos more than $107,000 for a series of violations including improper use of security guards and allowing people who had banned themselves from casinos to gamble.

    In a decision made public Monday, the state's Gaming Enforcement Division fined Harrah's Resort Atlantic City $70,000 for improper security staffing levels.

    It also issued four fines totaling $37,500 against Revel Casino Hotel. The casino was cited for allowing self-excluded gamblers to make bets, failing to collect cards properly after a blackjack game and violating security rules regarding the collection of cash boxes.

    The casinos declined comment on the fines. They reached settlements with the state on each one.
