ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - An Atlantic City casino will pay $17,500 for letting two teenagers drink so much one night last summer that an ambulance had to be called for one of them.

The state Gaming Enforcement Division imposed the fine on Bally’s Atlantic City on Jan. 23.

The decision was made public on Monday.

Bally’s did not respond to a request for comment, but the division noted both sides had agreed to the penalty under a settlement.

Officials say the casino served a 17-year-old and an 18-year-old three alcoholic beverages without asking for identification on Aug. 21.

Within an hour, a casino security found the 17-year-old visibly intoxicated on the casino floor, and called an ambulance.

The minimum age for drinking - and gambling - in New Jersey is 21.
