It's against Missouri law to gamble at riverboat casinos if you're under the age of twenty-one.

But a bill before the Senate House Ways and Means Committee Wednesday would add teeth to existing law.. by charging all violators with a fine or a jail sentence.

Missouri Gaming Commission Director..Kevin Mullally says current law does not go far enough...

Contents: "If no fake i.d. is involved there's no penalty for someone under 21 entering or attempting to the riverboat casino."

There was no opposition to the measure.
