This Week in Gambling: News from the Las Vegas Strip to Fremont Street

12 August 2020

It's another week of gambling news. This time, we have several stories about Vegas casino news to share from the Palms to Texas Station. Plus, a delayed Vegas casino reopening and a story from the new "adults only" casino opening on Fremont Street later this year.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board is to fine a Vegas casino. The Sahara Las Vegas was found to have four breaches of emergency health and safety guidelines issued because of the novel Coronavirus outbreak.

In early June 2020, the Board received a complaint that the Sahara, operated by the Muruelo Group, had been allowing more players on the slot floor than permitted in the state’s policies for reopening after closures that lasted from mid-March.

Following this, the Board witnessed three instances of customers at tables or machines where they were not playing and one meeting that exceeded the limit on meeting sizes.

Also, Vegas casino news from the Tropicana, where a scheduled reopen may be delayed. The CEO of Tropicana’s parent company on Thursday hinted that the Las Vegas resort might not open as planned on September 1st saying that there’s a possibility the opening of the property could be delayed based on market conditions.
