I read numerous responses where many have the casinos all figured out. Nice dreams.

While i am employed in the casino industry by a major casino company, i will tell you that there will be major changes made. As of this time, we are still waiting to finalize what those changes and new protocols will be,

I also get the impression from many, that they believe they have rights to say what is what within the casinos. Please remember, that casinos are private property and you can be removed for basically anything at anytime.

What do I do if the guy across the blackjack table from me covers his mouth when he coughs, and then picks up his chip and puts it in the betting circle ?

You can wipe down the chairs and ashtrays every 5 minutes if you want. As long as we are all handling the same cards, chips, dice and touching the same slot machines, casinos will be at the top of the list of virus spreading culprits

Thorough contact tracing will be the casino industryís worst nightmare.

And at the gas station?
At the supermarket?
At the other stores?
In public buildings as well?

Nothing guarantees you will not inherit the virus inside of a casino, the exact same as you just picked up a package of chicken or beef someone else just touched that sneezed directly into their hand and touched that package.

But fact is, casinos are private property. I am not in the legal department, I am in surveillance and related. Liability would be if a casino had knowledge and failed to perform due diligence to protect others.

Technically, any business is private property.

Whatever protocols are instituted will be signed off by the Governor....or disallowed.

I HAVE to assume there is going to be conformity....meaning each casino will NOT make their own rules.

While Wynn submitted an outline....Wynn is not going to dictate to the Governor. If that was the case then each casino on the strip could have their own rules. Iíd bet my right arm no way.

Iíll be watching very closely if health and welfare is priority 1....or other agendas take precedence. My wager is health and welfare will not be priority 1 on all facets of reopening.

Everyone on this board used to always intone a recurring mantra: The Players do the gambling, the Casino relies on the House Edge and does not gamble.
In reopening, however, the casinos will be gambling.
Whether its a wise gamble is debatable.
I happen to think its a good bet, but I don't own a casino.

The event is scheduled for May Day, which is also the international phonetic call for assistance.

If you really want to be honest about this whole thing....itís likely unworkable until a vaccine arrives.

Psychologically, a lot of people are going to be on pins and needles if someone coughs in their direction, smokes in their direction, stands too close.

Itís a fear factor. The fear alone will drive business into the gutter.



All this wishful thinking on a vaccine. Like we are in "Outbreak" and they will just make it. A vaccine will probably be years to decades, unless they rush something out and claim it works.

IMHO all you need to do is look at the current attitudes and positions. Look at the divide on "open it up." The people demonstrating and supporting opening it up are not going to let some stinking virus change their plans. If they liked the casino before they will happily go play again and want it to be back to normal. They will want all places to go back to normal. They are not afraid.

On the other side is the people who hate the position of the first group. While the will not keep the current stay at home routine, they will want every assurance everything possible has been done to "keep them safe." They want the cheques cleaned between every hand and every patron to wear masks. They will really avoid things at first, and for as long as the virus is in the news. When it is off the news they will find something else to be afraid of.

The question is, what percent of the population makes up each group. I think it is fairly near 50/50, maybe a slight tilt to the first group. That is among Americans, Asian tourists probably lean more heavy to the 2nd. Casino players probably skew to the first group.

Itís not even close to 50/50.

The ďopen it up nowĒ crowd is a small chunk of the population (albeit a very vocal one).

But they are HEAVILY regulated businesses. They are told how much they MUST (minimum) pay out on a given slot machine. They are told what the maximum occupancy of the casino floor is. They are told that they must restrict access to minors.
No individual will be able to tell a casino what to do. But society, through gaming control boards, health rules, building codes, etc... tell casinos what to do everyday. If the State Health Board says all patrons must wear a mask...... it happens. If they say only 3 people at a table.... done.
Imagine being a lobbyist representing the casinos today.... fun times!
