The New Jersey Office of the Attorney General has accused a boardwalk game operator of violating rules and regulations set by the state Legalized Games of Chance Control Commission.
Christine Strothers has been banned from holding an amusement games license for the next 10 years.
Strothers operates basketball and football games at several locations in Wildwood and North Wildwood.
Attorney General Matt Platkin says that Strothers’s games used over-inflated balls, negatively affecting a player’s chance of winning.
She is also accused of violating regulations on displaying prizes, with one example being showing prizes that could not be won.
“Every person who plays an amusement game in the State of New Jersey deserves a fair shot at winning a prize,” Platkin wrote in a statement.
Amusement park patrons are reminded that they can file a complaint at the Division of Consumer Affairs website if they believe they have witnessed any violations.
