Gaming Board Warns Clubs, Pool Parties about Crime

What are the big issues facing the pool parties and nightclubs in Vegas? Drug use and distribution, sexual assault, violence, theft, minors and prostitution. The Gaming Control Board issued a warning to Las Vegas day pool parties and nightclubs about a litany of issues that could get casinos and their gaming licenses in trouble.

Turn the clock back to 2006 and again in 2009 when the Hard Rock Hotel and the now-shuttered Prive Nightclub at Planet Hollywood Resort received those same warnings, and both casinos were fined. Planet Hollywood ended up paying a $500,000 fine for some of the illicit activities going on at Prive.

“While other parties lease out pools and run the day parties, the board said the casino resort holding the gaming license was responsible for making sure they follow state, local federal laws and gaming regulations.”
