Gambling is legal in Atlantic City but not for those under the age of 21 which includes teens and young children. Two Atlantic City casinos were fined a total $85,000 for allowing underage gambling. Bally’s Atlantic City was caught with a 15 year old playing the Roulette Wheel. Caesars Atlantic City was also fined for having a 20 year old playing Blackjack. Some may argue that it is not a big deal to have a 15 to 20 year old play these games. However, child advocates would argue that gambling and casinos are not proper places for children. Many young people / children lack the maturity and responsibility that are necessary when engaging in potentially dangerous, harmful, and / or expensive activities like gambling, driving, and drinking alcohol. Any body who thinks that putting a bottle of alcohol into a 14 year old driver of a Corvette heading out to a casino may not be fit for any of these activities as well.
