Foxwoods and Mohegan (Connecticut) have announced that table games are closed...

Foxwoods announces this on their site; nothing yet for Mohegan Sun.

... Foxwoods said that table games in one section would remain open. That seems silly: crowd all the table game players still there onto a smaller number of open tables?

Staffing fewer tables and closing some hotels sounds like a wise business move in terms of bean counting. Not so much for public health.

Here is what I see in Atlantic City casinos

Men smoking cigars and women smoking cigarettes and blowing smoke halfway across the casino

Considering how the virus is transmitted this seems like just another situation smokers don't care about anyone's health

What the open casinos should at least do is ban smoking and any other air transmitted habits.


Nice thought...never happen.

Parx casino closing.

all Ohio casinos either close down or limit to no more than 100 people (staff and guest combined). That can't possibly be worth the effort...

How the heck can they even do something like that? A person enters only if someone else leaves?

This has gotten crazy.

I'm leaning that we take the next 2 weeks and shut down every non essential business. Declare martial law. A state by state approach is nonsensical. Should be a consistent approach for all 50 states.

Just saw this on CNN:

Maryland governor issues emergency order to close all casinos, racetracks

From CNN's Liz Turrell

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan issued an emergency order to close all Maryland casinos, racetracks and simulcast betting facilities to the general public indefinitely today.

"This situation continues to evolve and will escalate rapidly and dramatically….these are unprecedented actions in an extraordinary situation, but they could be the difference in saving lives and keeping people safe," Hogan said.

The order does not apply hotels adjacent to the casinos.

The following properties are affected by the governor’s emergency order, which takes effect at midnight on March 16 and will remain in effect until the state of emergency has been terminated or until superseded by other orders:

MGM National Harbor
Live! Casino & Hotel
Horseshoe Casino Baltimore
Hollywood Casino Perryville
Ocean Downs Casino
Rocky Gap Casino Resort
Laurel Park
Pimlico Race Course
Timonium Race Course
Fair Hill Races
Rosecroft Raceway
Ocean Downs
All simulcast betting facilities in the state

My goal of being well informed conflicts with my goal of remaining sane.

The Mississippi casinos remain open and fully operational, but some shows are cancelled. MS Gaming was quoted as wanting to keep their current position "fluid" as the situation continues to develop. We'll see if this is a wise business move or not.

Most if not all Oklahoma casinos remain open as of 3/15 with no apparent plans to close as of now, although some special events and concerts have been canceled or postponed.

The whole thing is a gigantic crock of s$$t. The news is just scare'em, scare'em, scare'em. You'd think it was the Black Plague when it's just a different kind of flu.

I'm waiting for martial law to be declared so that you can't even leave your house without the government's permission.

On the good side, it's caused a fire sale on Wall Street.

Also, I'm making a lot of money by selling my toilet paper at gouge prices on Craig's list.

When casinos claim that they're implementing measures to help mitigate the spread of the Wuhan Corona Virus I have to laugh! The slot machines are still disgusting, covered in ash and beer and god knows what else.

And why in the hell are they still letting gamblers still smoke and vape in the casinos!!!
