Regarding the three phases for reopening, each phase is being defined (in my home state) as being a minimum of 28 days. I suspect this is pretty common - a reopening phase with a length of two weeks doesn't give enough time to assess whether the epidemic is flaring up again.

So, for non-Nevada casinos, I assume that many they will be closed a minimum of at least one more month and probably two more months. Vegas and Nevada are a different story, because the local economy depends so much on tourism and gambling -and because the Las Vegas mayor is erratic and hard to predict.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

The Mayor of Las Vegas doesn't represent the Strip, as it isn't in the City proper. The Governor will decide when to open, and I wouldn't be surprised if it is phased in with smaller local casinos opening first.

I donít believe heíll be able to allow some casinos the choice to open but not others, itís a blatantly unfair competitive advantage to those companies survival that are allowed to open first, and gives legitimate appearance of corruption. Governor could argue emergency powers to do whatever he wants but that argument ceases to have any validity once you allow any arms length comparable business to open. Missouri gaming commission has already made a similar statement that they wonít allow the more rural properties to open before KC/STL they all have to have the freedom to open at same time due to the competitive advantage.

Semi related companies arenít going to open all their casinos at the same time, Stations has stated Palms/Texas Station/Fiesta properties will be last to open, MGM has stated theyíll start with 2-3 properties, I believe Sands said theyíll start with Venetian and open Palazzo once demand dictates.

I believe he can, and will, allow non-hotel casinos outside of Clark County to open first and phase in the rest.

Yeah, well, thatís just like, your opinion Bill.

Non hotel casinos and certain Clark County excluded I suppose you can say isnít arms length. Different gaming licenses (the 15 machine thing) is different for sure.

Correct, it is strictly my opinion.

I think that Land-based Casinos are done for the most part since a large majority of people won't feel all that comfortable anymore handling chips and playing games in a Land-based Casino with a bunch of other People. I feel that Online Casinos just might overtake the Land-based Casinos.

I saw a document this past week that showed NV casinos opening in phase 4. I don't have a link. But each phase seemed to be a minimum of 14 days long, and phase 1 not yet happening. I think the best estimate was September, with November being more likely. FWIW without reference.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I find this casino reopening news depressing. Already knew to be disappointed, and I'm wavering between not going to a casino for awhile and driving straight out to the first one I see is open.
I am a robot.

According to Brian Christopher, Coeur D'Alene Casino in Worley, IA has opened their Casino on May 1. Website confirms it.
