Just announced by the Governor: all Nevada gaming, including all slot and VP machines, must be stopped effective midnight Tuesday night (3/17).

Finally CONSISTENCY prevails.

Thirty days is the longest directive I have seen as well.

With MGM closing a few days ago that means a thirty-four day shut down for them as any prior shutdown basically gets reset due to the directive

Yeah...that was my main gripe. Leave Dottyís open but force senior centers to close?

Close MGM but Planet Hollywood stays open?

I have no idea what the best course of action is but inconsistency is just plain bad.

How do you know they're never home?



Because every day their SUV's
are gone all day, and every
weekend they're home all
day. Now the SUV's never
move.

You should probably send them a letter to make sure they are ok. You can call the police, explain the situation and they'll check on their welfare. I hesitated with my elderly neighbor on night because his tv was always on and it wasn't on that night. I didn't do anything and they found him dead. He was kind of a jerk, liked leaving on Halloween to not give candy on Halloween, so I;m not worried about it and never was.

Of course they're OK, he's out there
running the chain saw hours as day
and the kids are running around
chasing the dog. It's the weekend
there everyday now.

Those are the people across the street.
I've gotten it two more times since then
and I just stick it in their mailbox.

Figured I might as well make a planned trip to Mystic Lake to grab freeplay and see what they were doing.



Not sure if you're still around, but both of the Grand Casinos closed.

Yeah, they acted really quickly. Grands closed before Mystic and TI even went to mandatory spacing measures. Mystic announced this morning that they're closing at noon and staying closed for at least 14 days. TI closed at 9pm yesterday.

I'm really interested to see what happens during the closures. I know Mystic had layout changes they wanted to make (moving walkways & rearranging slot banks). This would be a great time to put down new carpet or perform any maintenance that requires chemicals with a strong odor.
