Reno, NV May 22, 2018 Boomtown Casino (BCH Gaming Reno, LLC) accepts responsibility for our unintentional action that facilitated access to off-shore play-for-cash internet gaming sites by some of our gaming customers who utilized a marketing website that we implemented during part of 2017. We intended to offer only free-play casino style games to our gaming customers but subsequently learned that the website platform we implemented for this purpose also provided access to play-for-cash casino-style games. Because of our failure to recognize this additional component to the website program, we have agreed to acknowledge our responsibility for allowing these circumstances to exist, and to pay the monetary fine proposed by the Nevada Gaming Control Board. We will also forfeit the revenues we received from such operations to the Reno Problem Gaming Center.
However, we want to be clear that this result was unintentional and was done without knowledge of such improper capabilities. To that end, we immediately disabled the links to such play-for-cash websites upon being advised of the problem by Agents of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, thereby making further access to such improper websites impossible by persons utilizing the Boomtown website. We also fully cooperated with the investigation of the matter that was conducted by the Nevada Gaming Control Board.
We accept responsibility for permitting such circumstances to occur but reiterate that we did not operate an unlicensed interactive gaming system in Nevada or elsewhere. None of our owners, managers, or executive officers knew or were aware that the website our company engaged for promotional free-for-play casino games also facilitated access to play-for-cash websites offered by off-shore internet gaming providers. We regret that we failed to recognize the full capabilities of the website program we engaged for marketing purposes, thereby allowing these unintended consequences to occur. Moving forward we are fully committed to repairing our previously unblemished record of compliance with all requirements and regulations applicable to our businesses
