DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) — Owners of the Four Aces Casino in Deadwood say they plan to appeal to circuit court a $25,000 fine and a 15-day suspension of the business’s gambling license.

South Dakota’s Commission on Gaming says the casino has repeatedly failed to provide accurate, complete and legible revenue reports, dating to 2008. The license suspension takes effect Monday.

Commission Executive Secretary Larry Eliason has said it’s the largest penalty he can remember in his nearly two decades with the commission.

Casino General Manager Tony Sieber tells the Rapid City Journal that the penalties are “exceptionally harsh” and could threaten as many as 100 jobs as Christmas nears.
