Nevada is one of the many states seeing an increase in infections.

The Alamo used to have some decent games but that was years ago. What was once the best BJ game in town is now among the worst.
The Double Down was kool ten years ago. Have you spent much time in Vegas in recent years?

Sisolak at 11:15 this morning had a video conference call with the Vegas Chamber of Commerce. It was carried live on several news media websites. He gave NO CLUE about when casinos might reopen or even when Phase 2 will start.

Everywhere is expected to see increase as testing increases. That is basic math.

Its a friggin sun blasted desert. I would feel safer there than anywhere.

Typically visit once a month. Was there last weekend.

Haven't played Black Jack at Alamo. Consider it awesome cause they got a William Hill & William Hill Kiosk and you can bet game than go across to the Rusty Spurs and watch. They also have Taco Time which we don't have in Cali. Sucker for the Crisp Beef & Crisp Bean Burritos, as my waistline will attest

Double Down will always be great to me. I can kill 12 hrs on their machines with a couple hundred buy in easy. Typically win and drink free PBR for hours & hours.

Consider the hard working folks at all three to be friends. Hate to see them suffering. Scared they won't come back.

More of the same. How many small businesses do they have to bankrupt before they are happy?

We are used to this sort of behavior from the rulers of California. Never expected such behavior in Nevada. Shocking and downright sad to see.

Please let us extend an invitation to all the fine gamblers in Nevada hungry for a little casino action. California Casinos are reopening!!

Spotlight 29 in Indio has always treated me well. No free drinks but decent odds and good food.

Morongo & Harrah's Rincon are solid joints with marginal odds. Have a feeling that despite the odds the jackpots will be flying.

Don't be totally screwed by your leaders. Make the drive to Cali and be lightly screwed by ours. They allow gambling, no free drinks and no sports betting, but beggars can't be choosers these days.

No sports to bet on aside from baseball from Korea or virtual camel races from Dubai. Either is worse than betting on exhibition NFL games.

Phase 2 starts when they have two weeks of decreasing cases. On the CDC map where yellow and green are good and red is bad, Nevada is currently a dark orange.

FYI - billryan California, Texas, Arizona & Louisiana are all darker than NV on that map. California, Arizona & Louisiana have already reopened casinos, Texas don't have many but sure which ones they do are reopening. NV casinos are the states life blood and they are still closed. That baffles me.
