    Gambling officials have fined three Pennsylvania casinos a total of nearly $300,000 for violating state regulations.

    The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announced penalties Wednesday against casinos in Valley Forge, Grantville and Philadelphia.
     
    Officials issued a $200,000 fine to the Valley Forge Casino Resort for a promotion that circumvented a law requiring patrons to pay $10 to enter the facility.
     
    A Valley Forge spokesman says the casino works hard to comply with the complicated regulation while still trying to attract customers.
     
    Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course was cited for failing to properly vet credit applications. It must pay $70,000.
     
    And Sugarhouse Casino in Philadelphia was fined $20,000 for allowing a banned gambler to wager.
     
    Hollywood and Sugarhouse representatives did not immediately return requests for comment.
