Bobby Soper, the Mohegan Sun Casino CEO has officially resigned. His resignation comes amid claims that his team was responsible for the financial impropriety that has seen the company lose millions of dollars.
The gaming commission in Pennsylvania is looking into the possibility of Bobby engaging in the financial management breakdown that saw the gaming resort, incur losses.
According to Pennsylvania’s Gaming Enforcement Control board, the Mohegan Sun, which Soper represented, might face tough disciplinary action from the board alone for a number of reasons.
Among the reasons for the gaming resort to face disciplinary action is that the resort’s management on many times failed to track slot play, especially the free play. Another reason that the board may consider for a disciplinary action involves the possible charging of the resort’s three former employees who were involved in gaming malpractice.

Robert Pellegrini, the former Player Development VP is likely to be charged for his part in the facilitation of a possible scam, which cost a casino in Pennsylvania over $400, 000.
If what the gaming board is planning for Soper and the other three people from Pennsylvania will go through, that will have an impact on how developers make real money online casino gambling sites.
The 2016 guilty plea, Pellegrini, a waitress who served cocktail at the resort and another man colluded with the aim of winning $478, 350. They succeed in their scheme by using free money attained from the slot.
On what seems to be a way of running away from the ‘crime’, Soper handed in his resignation upon hearing that investigation into the financial mismanagement has commenced.
Apart from Mohegan Sun that is located in Connecticut, Mohegan Sun also controls two other gaming resorts; Resorts Casino that is in Atlantic City as well as a gaming complex that is located in Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania.
Resigning But Not Involved
Bobby’s resignation does not mean that he is directly involved in the financial scam that has engulfed his former company.
His withdrawal from a company, which has been his employer for 2 years, is based on his team’s failure in attaining ‘standards’ that are set by the gaming authority. According to observers, the ‘standard’ is the inability to oversee proper operations of the gaming facility. For now, there is absolutely no reason to believe that he was directly linked to the scam but on managerial grounds.
Confirmed sourced recently revealed that Bobby has 5% of ReferLocal, a marketing company that has had business with Mohegan Sun for a long time until last month.
Whether Soper is running away from investigations or not, Mohegan Sun says his former employee is definitely looking for greener opportunities elsewhere.
A couple of months before Soper’s resignation, Mohegan Sun had gone on the news with reports that the gaming giant had recorded $51.6 million in net losses.
