State Gaming Enforcement director David Rebuck issued the fines Nov. 25. They were made public this week.

The casino declined comment.

According to initial charges, the Showboat engaged in play a total of nine times between September 2012 and September of this year with cards that had not first been shuffled. The documents do not detail how many customers won or lost as a result of the unshuffled cards.

The casino also was fined for violating rules regarding the money counting room, including a requirement that anyone who enters it wear a one-piece pocketless garment.
