State audit questions distribution of unclaimed slots money

A state audit released Monday raised questions about how the Maryland State Lottery and Gaming Control Agency distributed more than $700,000 in unclaimed video slots proceeds. That issue was among the five findings by the Office of Legislative Audits. The report also raised concerns about the security of the agency's computer network as well as its failure to publicly publish notification of the awarding of three contracts valued at a combined $106 million. Gina Smith, acting director of the agency, in a letter to the auditor wrote that the agency had always intended to distribute the unclaimed money in a manner consistent with how it distributes other slots proceeds.
