Carson Nugget Fined $20,000

8 February 2006

CARSON CITY, Nevada -- Carson Nugget, the biggest casino in Carson City, has agreed to pay a $20,000 fine to the state for repeated violations in reporting its revenue from the slot machines since 1992.

The complaint filed Jan. 9 by the state Gaming Control Board said the Nugget had received periodic warnings, and it alleged that since November 1992 the board has been unable "to render an opinion on the proper reporting of revenue ...(and) ... is unable to confirm that all gaming revenues taxes due to the state of Nevada have been paid."

In addition, the complaint said the Nugget failed to keep adequate records.

The stipulation also requires the Nugget to hire an independent accountant to review past slot reports and try to determine the difference between what was reported and what the actual take was.

The agreement will be presented to the Nevada Gaming Commission Feb. 23 for its approval.
