NJ seizes $69K in unclaimed Atlantic City casino jackpots

(AP) - New Jersey gambling regulators have seized more than $69,000 in unclaimed jackpots won by gamblers at three casinos who couldn't prove they were old enough to gamble legally, or who left the premises without cashing in.



The move by the state Division of Gaming Enforcement included seizures from two casinos that are now closed, Trump Plaza and the Trump Taj Mahal, which accounted for most of the seized money. The third seizure came from the Tropicana.



The seizures were approved in late November and made public last week.



The casinos and the individual gamblers did not contest the fines or forfeiture orders.



The forfeited money goes to a state fund for programs for senior citizens and the disabled.
