If the Lucky Dragon hires an outside company to operate its casino, the new operator would have to reapply for a gaming license and go before the Nevada Gaming Control Board and Nevada Gaming Commission for approval.

Nevada Gaming Commission Chairman Dr. Tony Alamo, who was aware of the impending closing about a week ago, said it is possible, from a regulatory standpoint, for the resort to meet its six-month deadline to reopen the casino.

It depends on who (the new operator) is, Alamo said. If its someone who is known to us, it is very doable. If they are not known to us and it requires an extensive investigation, it may not be.

Good link!

Given what Alamo said, it seems like they could contract an operator known to the NGC to operate it for one day, if needed...but maybe Im reading too much into that.

There is a firm that does just that. Operate casinos solely to maintain minimum services to keep licenses active. They can even arrange for all the power and safety equipment, etc. All their key personnel are licensed. Minimum services for a minimum period of time just to protect the license while negotiations for some sale are underway.

So they were trying to attract an Asian crowd with an Asian theme?

Isn't the point of going on a vacation to a different country because you want to experience that culture and different things?

I would not go to Asia and want to eat American food.

I would not go to Asia and want to stay at an American themed casino unless it was something really special that they didn't have here in the USA. I would obviously want the employees to speak English. I know they can be very superstitious and they have certain customs and traditions but I would have to think that stuff can also be incorporated somehow.

Why would the higher limit players want to gamble at such a small casino?

Who comes to Vegas just to be cooped up and gamble in such a small uneventful place? I have to imagine, the first thing people do who are staying there is hit the more interesting casinos.

One might choose to gamble there if they the casino was offering better value and odds or something significantly extra.
♪♪Now you swear and kick and beg us That you're not a gamblin' man Then you find you're back in Vegas With a handle in your hand♪♪ Your black cards can make you money So you hide them when you're able In the land of casinos and money You must put them on the table♪♪ You go back Jack do it again roulette wheels turinin' 'round and 'round♪♪ You go back Jack do it again♪♪

I wonder what Lucky Dragon did to already get banned since they just joined today and only have this post. I am guessing that they were a spammer?

I was wondering the same
I appreciated his post. Not spam to me
He may be able to shed more light on this situation
I was hoping to see more detailed posts from him regarding what he views as misinformation in this thread
Let him post
Lets hear the other side
