ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Authorities have fined an Internet gambling firm $10,000 for soliciting more than 250 people who voluntarily excluded themselves from gambling in New Jersey.

State Gaming Enforcement Division spokeswoman Kerry Langan tells The Press of Atlantic City (https://bit.ly/1x6hZr4 ) the fine against Caesars Interactive Entertainment is the first imposed since New Jersey launched online gambling last year.

Casinos and online operations are forbidden from sending promotional materials to gamblers who voluntarily ban themselves.

Caesars Interactive is an affiliate of Caesars Entertainment, which owns Caesars, Bally’s and Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City.
