Wind Creek Casino email says that going forward , they’ll only allow patrons to come in if they make a reservation. This is for just coming to gamble. Not a hotel room.

”Once we believe we can accommodate more Guests, we will reopen to the general public. We will still be operating at reduced capacity and we don’t want the excitement of visiting our property spoiled due to waiting in line to get in. So we will offer a new reservation system for casino visits. This system will allow Guests to “reserve” a day and time in advance and will allow us to always keep the number of Guests and Team Members on property and on the casino floor at a safe number. Please expect more information on this system soon.”



Very interesting. They must have guesstimated how long a patron will stay. If they want to limit to 100 at a time, and 100 are there at the open, when do they start letting more in?
Who decides what is 'a safe number'?
I assume there will be an ID check to make sure only those with reservations will get in?
We shall see.....

I'm sure charter buses will be a priority.

I would hope so! If I'm a business that has been shut down for a few months and am just opening with far fewer patrons than I would normally have, darn tootin I would want my best customers back first!

Let's see.... $1,000 a hand baccarat player or guy who may drop $10 on a slot machine, will then just aimlessly walk around......

I play basketball in a Saturday church league. You must sign up by email. Church members may sign up Wednesday. The rest of us can sign up for remaining spots on Thursday. Seems analagous.

So how much can you win at the casinos in the 3 weeks they're reopened before they close again? Will it buy you a life insurance policy?

Good question and good point.

I think every statement about casinos reopening is overly optimistic. If Nevada isn't rushing to reopen casinos what government will?

I have two overriding concerns:

1. The public won't have money to gamble after this shutdown

2. The casino workers won't return

I think they’ll also want to make sure each reservation time slot is a mixture of player types. They don’t wanna let say 100 people in who are all slot players and have their table games dealers standing there doing nothing.

The big problem for me is how do they police the finishing time of my reservation. If I sign up for 6pm on a Friday night, do I have to be out by 8pm. What if i want to stay longer. What if I have a room that night. If I’m up big at my going home time are they going to make me leave even if I’m willing to risk losing it back.

Based on the mayor's comments about getting back to business as soon as possible, I expect casinos to open the very minute Nevada Gaming (or whomever) ends the casino shutdown. But, the devil's in the details, don'cher know?

This article about Opening Vegas, points out that that Wynn and other big LV names are also big players in Macao. Macao opened its casinos while also controlling -- virtually eliminating -- coronavirus cases. The big casinos now know how they can safely open and run a post-pandemic casino, because they are doing it in Macao. The Wynn protocols largely mirror the Macao procedures, according to the article.

For APs and recreational gamblers alike, I think this article paints the most realistic picture I've yet seen of the new gaming environment. The Macao/Wynn protocol will be adopted by the other big properties, and then copied by other gaming properties (perhaps with minor tweeks). Until folks figure out something better, this may be the "standard" just about everywhere.
