ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Four Atlantic City casinos have forfeited more than $12,000 won by underage gamblers.

The casinos seized the money from patrons found to be under the legal gambling age of 21. The state Gaming Enforcement Division ordered them to forfeit the winnings to a state fund for seniors and the disabled. The forfeitures were made public this week.

The Borgata turned over the largest amount, $7,463. The money was confiscated between February 2011 and August 2013 from 103 gamblers, most of whom were playing slot machines. But some also came from customers of tables games.

Harrah’s ceded $2,914 won by 22 customers between August 2011 and July 2013.

The Tropicana handed over $1,532 won from 39 gamblers between July 2011 and August 2013, and the Golden Nugget forfeited $303 won by nine gamblers between August 2011 and January 2015.

Caesars was also fined $1,500 for a repeat violation of rules regarding record-keeping for cash box transactions. The violation involved instances when slot cash boxes were either full or found to be inoperable and had to be replaced outside the normal pickup schedule.

The Gaming Enforcement Division said it had warned the casino of problems with its record-keeping and paperwork regarding the box replacements.
