The New Jersey Casino Control Commission voted to allow casino security guards to detain underage gamblers while they wait for police to arrive for the arrest. New Jersey residents must be 21 to drink and gamble in the state's casinos, and hundreds of underage gamblers are detained each year. Security guards were previously allowed to remove underage gamblers from the casino but were not allowed to detain them. "Our casinos and our regulators take compliance with the avoidance of underage activity in our casinos and bars extremely seriously," said Joseph Corbo Jr., president of the Casino Association of New Jersey.
