Maryland Heights, MO (KSDK) - For the second time in just over a week, a computer glitch has forced gamblers and patrons off the casino floor at the Hollywood Casino in St. Louis.

NewsChannel 5 received several calls just after 5:30 a.m. from gamblers who called it a night and headed home after their gaming experience was cut short and they were asked to exit the gaming floor just past 5:00 a.m.

Calls to the Hollywood Casino went unanswered this morning and Maryland Heights Police confirmed to the newsroom the casino was experiencing another computer issue similar to one a week ago shortly after the facility opened to the public.

Hollywood Casino took over the property formerly known as Harrahs in Maryland Heights after the license was bought and transferred to Penn National Gaing Incorporated by the Missouri Gaming Commission.
