So how does a certain Bingo room in Nevada get around the 25% capacity limit, after being reduced from 50%? Let’s increase the room capacity from 146 to 300! There are only 28 6’ tables, assuming you put three players on each side so you have a total of six per table, that is a max of 168. There are about a dozen large fixed machines so you could accommodate maybe 190. If you sat six at the table, there would be zero elbow room. There is absolutely no way you can put 300 players in this room, unless they took out all the table and chairs and make it standing room only. I have no idea how this casino could get away with this. I’m assuming this had to be signed off by the Fire Marshal?

Your post is meaningless if you don’t mention the casino in question.

The Plaza made announcements about increased socially distanced bingo capacity by expanding into the currently unused banquet / meeting room space.

I’d be surprised if other casinos didn’t do the same thing.

So which casino is it?

Name of the casino is irrelevant but it’s in northern Nevada. They have just doubled their room capacity during a pandemic where everyone must social distance and businesses must reduce capacity, its like a restaurant doubling their room capacity so they can maintain a certain number of customers. But it’s a unrealistic number because it’s not possible. The current bingo room cannot accommodate 300 bingo players. You cannot put anymore tables or chairs in the existing room. You mentioned the Plaza increasing their capacity but they moved to a bigger room. Just saying it’s not fair for the other business who are complying and this casino is changing the rules so that they are not affected. So much for safety first.

I have never played Bingo in my life, in a casino or elsewhere. I am just wondering if you guys are regular Bingo players or is your interest is some increased advantage due to fewer players, assuming the prize pool remains the same?

Even if there is an advantage there due to reduced players, I gotta say, seems like one of the more risky activities in a casino right now.

I’ve seen occupancy loads for casinos as low as 11 sq. ft. per person.

What is that?...about 3 ft x 3ft per person.

My guess is even with 50% capacity reductions....none of these places are even coming close to capacity limits.

A 50’ x 50’ bingo room. At full capacity that’s 225 people stuffed in there. Not even realistic. Even 100 people in there is like canned sardines.

My guess is most of these edicts are nothing more than “we are doing something”....but that something is meaningless. Sounds good...but meaningless. Show me a casino that has reached capacity...and now there’s a line at the door.

Lol, I played last week and now they have taken the maximum occupancy sign down and it’s nowhere to be found. So in summary this room went from a capacity of 146, to 300 and now to no sign.
