19-year-old Bobbi Kristina, daughter of the late Whitney Houston has been caught on video gambling at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Bobbi and her 22-year-old boyfriend were caught sitting at the slots on Saturday night, just one night before they attended the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday.
MGM reps have promised that a full investigation is underway and the casino could be in trouble with the Nevada Gaming Commission which has launched its own investigation to determine if the casino turned a blind eye on the situation.
Anyone caught gambling under age in Nevada can be charged with a misdemeanor and receive a fine up to $1,000 and up to 6 months in prison. The MGM in the meantime could be faced with an even larger fine and other punishments.
If you have been to Las Vegas in recent years you are probably aware of how easy it is to gambling in most casinos. During my last five trips to the city in the past two years I have witnessed many gamblers who look underage playing the slots and even table games and rarely did I ever hear a pit boss or casino employee ask for identification to claim winnings or in many cases play at tables. In fact with the advent of automated payment machines underage gamblers can win big at the slots and collect their winnings without ever actually talking to or presenting ID to a casino employee.
Do you think Bobbi Kristina should be fined $1000 for her underage gambling habits?
