Nev. Gaming Commission approves Palms fine

Jan 28, 2013 8:07 PM

The Nevada Gaming Commission has approved a $1 million fine assessed by the Gaming Control Board against the Palms Casino Resort for failing to prevent nightclub employees from providing drugs and prostitutes to customers.

Before assessing the fine, the Board reportedly spent months having undercover agents conduct stings at the property. The complaint said club hostesses offered to sell drugs such as cocaine and ecstasy.

It was believed arrests of some of the people involved will follow.

Management of the property said it has taken measures to prevent any such activity from occurring in the future.
