Without clear cut rules...I expect very little adherence to what gaming control mandates.



Having worked with casinos and Nevada Gaming regulators I would expect about 99% of the mandates to be met at the major casinos. The suggestion of 6 foot social distancing will not be enforced by the casinos because that can't be enforced unless the patrons agree to do it.

And what about the 50% occupancy limit? Nobody was keeping track on who was coming and going. And from the pictures from this past weekend, looks like many casinos were packed. But again. You could have surveillance keep tabs on the number of guests via the cameras and we would never know it. But the casino sure seemed pretty crowded when I went. And I wore a mask. Also didn't see anyone wipedown my machine when I left.

You think gaming agents are strolling through the casinos undercover to see if any one of them is in violation?

Can anyone report on the four person limit in elevators? I can imagine enforcement works in the lobby, but if I'm om the fifth floor trying to go down to the lobby, after three or four doors open and my entry is "illegal" because there are already four people inside... well, I'm getting on, and anyone uncomfortable with me being there is more than welcome to get out. You cannot remain six feet away from three other strangers in an elevator. Just another example of a rule for the sake of rules.

How do players smoke with a mask on?

Have they also banned smoking?




Pretty sure there are a couple, few, two or three, whatever, who are NOT smoking. I'll have to look back at my notes later. I'll try to post back here if I am correct, or if I am wrong.

If there's one thing that I can't stand it's weakness. Cutting holes in your mask to smoke...that's pretty sad.

Are they enforcing "social distancing" at the Craps table, the most social game in the casino? Are the players standing shoulder to shoulder around the table as usual or just one or two on each side?

FYI, between all these protestors, Vegas, etc. you should prepare yourself for outbreak number 2 in a few weeks.

I was going to watch The Poseidon Adventure, but the surveillance footage surely suggests The COVID-19 Adventure.

Here's one, the very first one I looked at in my notes, Table Mountain, a rather large casino in Fresno. Just opened TODAY. Everyone wears a mask, and NO smoking.

My understanding is 6 players max on craps table. 3 on each side of stickman. 4 on roulette and I think 3 on blackjack type tables.

These rules are supposed to be strictly adhered to. The other social distance rules are pretty much ridiculous and will likely not get enforced.

It was supposed to be every other slot machine but I saw every machine open and playable. There was just no chair. I donít know if that means you canít stand and play as I saw a guy standing and playing and no one said a word.

Here's another, Fantasy Springs in Indio, close to Palm Springs. They're calling it "Phase 1" opening. Several are opening in phases. They say everyone wears a mask, and NO SMOKING. 50% capacity.

By the way, the one I already mentioned, Table Mountain, is 25% capacity.
